Part 3- We Got the Keys!!!

Before I really get into this post, I feel it is important to say that uncertainty, trials, and tribulations are all a part of life, so embrace them and know that there is something good on the other side of all that.

August 31, moving day! This was the day we packed our belongings into a storage unit and moved into the extended stay hotel. When we packed our life into the storage, we still didn’t have a final approval from the lender, but I was still operating in faith. The lender asked me to do some things to improve my credit score so that I could get a better rate and I did everything she asked, and my score dropped. No one could explain to me why this happened, but it did and here I was once again filled with so much doubt and so many unanswered questions. Read More

God is Good Even When it Isn’t Good

Psalm 34:1-I will bless the Lord at all time his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Prayer and praise are two different things; prayer means to petition, and praise means to glorify. To bless God is to recognize his power, strength, and his graciousness. In our praise we are saying I know who you are God, I know you can, and I know you will.

Last year, November 5, I posted on my Facebook “I stopped saying please God and started saying thank you God. I was practically begging God to change some things in my life. When I moved from begging God to thanking Him, I started to see a shift in my life. Matthew 6 tell us not to worry, that this does not add a single hour onto our life; but this is how I lived, I prayed and then I worried. Now I no longer worry, and I give God the praise, rather it is good or bad. Read More

The Middle-Faithing It (Part 2)

Tuesday, July 16, 2019, was hard; worry, doubt, and fear kicked in all at once. I sat at my desk completely overwhelmed with my thoughts; maybe the hotel was unsafe, maybe my goals were unrealistic, what if it didn’t work out as planned. Negative scenario after negative scenario kept playing over and over again in my head. My head was hurting and my heart was racing. My focus was non-existent; I just needed the day to be over with.

On Sunday, July 14, 2019, I decided it was time to end my marriage. We have been married almost nine years and the marriage was empty, just two people coexisting. I often hear people say you should stay and work it out but that takes two people; not one person praying it’ll get better and the other carrying on like nothing is happening around them. There are many reasons I could use to justify leaving my marriage but in the end it all came down to one thing…. I needed to choose me. I needed to choose the things I wanted for my life. I needed to choose my happiness and that’s exactly what I did. I chose me. Read More

Faith for the Fire

The Fire

Have you heard or read the story about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego? In the book of Daniel chapter 3, a king named Nebuchadnezzar built a gold statute and he ordered everyone to kneel before the statue and worship it. When the music played everyone kneeled with the exception of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. King Nebuchadnezzar was made aware of this by some Babylonian fortunetellers, who saw this in a vision.
