Just finished watching this with my husband and Antonio Brown dropped way too many gems to count on this podcast. I’m grateful to have caught each one of them. My hope is that you would catch them too.

Before I head out from work, I wanted to quickly share these words with you:
KEEP PRESSING ON!!
These last several weeks have been HARD but I finally had a breakthrough yesterday. It’s awesome to have someone in your corner that will not be afraid to intercede (also known as intervene on behalf of another) and pray for you when you don’t even have the strength to do so. Of course, you want to always turn to God as we are instructed to in 1 Peter 5:7. It tells us to give all our worries and cares to God, for He cares about us.
Have you ever felt like you would give anything to get away, far away, just you and God? Away from distractions? Away from responsibilities? Away from people? Away from your own thoughts and emotions?
Yupp!! That’s what I’m experiencing right now. But yet I am alone in my car and instead of taking this time to spend with God, I’m here blogging instead. It’s foolish of me to continue typing because minutes before I pulled my phone back out to type all of this I was just saying outloud, “I want more of You, God. I just want more of You.”
But then minutes before that I was looking through my contacts checking to see who I can call to speak to or to text before tossing my phone into my bag. Are you kidding me?!? I wanna smack myself for this foolishness.
Lately, I’ve been in an emotional roller coaster. One minute I’m feeling encouraged and on fire for God and then the next minute I’m feeling discouraged and stagnant. But I’m grateful that I can always turn to God and He is the same at all times. His grace is truly sufficient and He always finds a way to remind us of this truth. I pray this devotional and song blesses you as it blessed me. 💕🌻
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.” Psalms 37:23
Some of you are wondering how God is going to get you from where you are today to where He wants you to be. How can He get us from where we are in our current situations, and our current lives to the great destiny, that we know deep in our hearts, God has in mind for us?
It’s been a while and so much has happened since my last post but I will share a few posts in the near future letting you know all about it but for now I wanted to share the link of a movie my sis and I watched yesterday that truly touched us. I wish I can elaborate but I don’t want to spoil it for you. I will share my thoughts on a future post but I pray it blesses you as it blessed us – Same Kind of Different as Me.
Since I’m here, let me also share a series I’ve been following for the past 4 weeks titled “Planted Not Buried” by Pastor Mike Todd. 😩🙌🏼 Man-O-Man!! What a series this is!
If you haven’t seen his past series titled “Grace Like A Flood“! WOWZERZ!!! That’s all I’m gonna say! This man is truly anointed and has been such a blessing to me!
Okay okay, let me get back to work. Happy Tuesday!! TGIT!!
Sometimes we have people, who love us dearly and want to see us win (mentally, physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually) because they see our potential better than we can. They believe that if they were able to come out stronger on the other side, we can too. They try to encourage us as much as they can. They show us how much they love us, not just with their words but by their action. They remind us how awesome we are and how we deserve so much more than what we’ve made ourselves believe. Because they sincerely care for us. 💕
I believe we all have a story to tell and how we choose to share it is completely up to us. There are people who may have been or may currently be on a similar path you once were on and sharing your experience and how you were able to overcome could possibly be the encouragement they need not to lose hope and motivate them to keep going.
This is a powerful article I read a year ago & I always go back to it when I need to self reflect & reevaluate.
Life is precious. Yet all too often, we may find that much of our time is spent around negative, toxic people, draining the life right out of us. Sometimes they’re co-workers, friends, or sadly, even family members.
God never intends for us to spin our wheels, waste our days, trying to make others happy who can never be happy. Because in reality, it doesn’t depend on us. It’s not up to you. They may want you to think it does, as if you possess the power to improve the value of their existence, but that’s not a burden meant for you to carry.
