Good better best, never let it rest, till’ your good is better, and your better is best, never settle for less than Gods best.
A little progress a day adds up to major results.. keep moving, keep learning, be patient and progress ❤
Life has a way of being drowning in many different ways. It can be through uncertainty of whats next… Disappointments… Failures… People… Jobs… Kids… Responsibilities… Either it comes one at a time or all at once.. Whatever it may be the common thing is that it can and will be drowning. It comes like a rushing wave trying to cover you and push you to the bottom. Don’t let it. Take control and keep control.
Just like the ocean on a summer day, your life should beautiful and anticipated. And when it’s not; Find the beauty in your storm. Surfers love storms because that’s where they get their best practice.. that’s where they grow… Don’t wait till the waves come to learn how to swim. Plan now, start now, prepare now…. remember surfers 🏄 even still get knocked down sometimes, but they never cease to jump back up.. ride your wave until calmness returns and don’t drown in shallow waters. ❤
Learn how to float, then learn how to swim.
I don’t even know where to begin with this…. … For some reason although it was a hard year mentally I can not look at it as a bad year because I learned soooo much from it..
For next year–Transition– So this is something that i am learning about… The first think that I learned is that IT SUCKS…The second thing that I learned is that transitions and next steps have everything to do with identity and most of the time is sucks because there is a lack of understanding in ones identity. (This deserves its own blog)
I’ve had this mentality that I deserved so much.. this and that and that and this… to the point I became so frustrated and hurt and anything else you can name.. I didn’t want anything dramatic.. more like stability; good job, good relationship, car, own place… normal ADULT stuff… I thought that more than anybody I deserved all of this because I thought I was a good person… a better person than some people who had these things…Let me tell yall…. God himself came down from heaven and had to show me myself… had to show me why in reality I didn’t deserve anything from Him… He had to remind me of some stuff… I did… and DIDN’T DO most importantly…. How I was this “good person” because fear ruled my life not God himself. Anxiety and low self esteem ruled my life. I wasn’t good because I wanted to please God. Jesus was not LORD of my life… I had gotten saved but not made Jesus Lord… is there anybody else that hasn’t made Jesus Lord of your life… not just letting Jesus be your savior but also your Lord.. your Ruler? Salvation is two fold, two decisions.
So yes, God really had to show me, me this year… you can do all the good in the world and it mean nothing if its not done to the Glory of God… I did good things because it made me feel good but still dying on the inside … you have to examine and take care of you.. especially if you have the gift of helps .. “you can’t pour from a empty cup” Just imagine if you pulled up to cookout drive through window and a dead person was trying to hand you your food.. imagine if the manager new a dead person was handing out food.. God doesn’t want to be in business with dead people.. If people knew how dead I really was on the inside why would they want what I have… God had to show me how dead I was on the inside… and that although He wanted to use me he couldn’t trust me with what he had for my life.. I had let my personal issues be bigger than the issue solver….
I chose to ignore my issues… I thought that stability would get rid of them until I had stability and still didn’t know what to do.. was still not satisfied… I ran from my issues when all alone I was my own issues… and then I had no stability and didn’t know what to do… wondering why I had to be the person in my situation.. how selfish! Why not me..
Im in a season now of trusting God and Getting to know him as my father… I had to learn to stop making excuses, stop complaining and learning how to humbly be bold as well…
But let me tell yall how much of a Good Good Father God is… Through all of this He never left me… even when I got frustrated and swore I was out here on my own — how the old folk say it—He took time to see about lil ol’ me…. God had to move me out of my own way.. I had to be broken down so that I could see and hear Him.. that was the best thing that could have happened to me…
Its ok to be broken… but don’t dwell in your brokenness…. don’t use it as an excuse… Let God use your brokenness to help others… the devil will use your brokenness and turn it into pride and depression… God will use your broken pieces to create a beautiful picture…
Your issues may not be what my issues are… but I encourage you to cast whatever your burdens are on God and watch Him work.. Let Him be Lord of your life.. its to much pressure to be your own Lord. Don’t let yourself be the reason you don’t progress. You are a daughter or son of God and he wants to father you…let him in.
This next year… Find your own lane then learn how to drive in it. Stay focused, there is so much in us. 💕

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them…. Genesis shows us first that God created man to be a replica of himself. Each of us has a part of his image. There is a YOU shaped hole in God that only YOU can fill. God molded us in the palm of his hand. He reached into his heart, tore off a piece and there you stood… in his hand. *If God put us all together( the body of Christ) we should look like his heart. Like putting the pices of a puzzle together to make a beautiful picture.*
Because we were created in his image, we don’t have a right to be fearful, self conscious, or shameful. We have a piece of a Good, Good Father imbedded inside of us. The God inside of us wants to be apart of us. God wants to be apart of us like any good father would want to be apart of their daughters/sons life. It is not God’s desire that we feel as ophans when life’s circumstances makes us feel that way. There are many things in our past and currents situations that have placed a biased lense on how we feel about ourselves. This is why we can not conform to the world with God inside of us. Its like two forces, two magnets trying to come together… It contradicts. It contaminates and tears the body apart. We are a image of the most high there fore we are not destined for a low life,
*ladies pun intended* *Ladies we are fearfully and wonderfully made- That is a powerful description to have: this isn’t limited to some but is a characteristic to everywoman in the body of Christ. We have to be a reflection of that in every area of our life*
You are not an accident — know that you have been lovingly, fearfully and wonderfully made by God for a purpose, “on purpose.”
Our bodies; temples, belong to God. “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you “present” your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1
