As I’ve mentioned many times in the past, I was in a relationship with my ex for almost 5 years. A year into the relationship he lied about being at his sister’s house. The truth was that he was at a “strip club”. Who knows!?! There was no need for him to lie unless he had something to hide (obviously). I didn’t forgive him right away but eventually I let it go because I “loved” him. As women (as some men do as well), we overlook many of the red flags that are being presented to us early on in the relationship only to set ourselves up for failure in the long run.

My heart is overjoyed with love and gratitude. Last night was a true blessing all around – from beginning to end. I’ve been blessed to have such amazing people in my life. Thank you so much Covenant Keepers for showering us with your love, prayers and blessings. #SweetSurprise 💕👣🎁
💑 #CovenantKeepers (CK) is a Life Group for married, engaged or courting couples who are intentional about having the Lord Jesus be the Center of their relationships. 🕇 We meet once a month and was originally facilitated by such an amazing couple (David & Kenya Greene) who desire that each person will know the will of God for their marriage and come into a full knowledge and understanding of who they are in Christ as a couple.
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
There’s nothing that can compare to being in the presence of God, exalting Him for who He is & allowing Him to fill you up with an overflow of His love, strength, peace, wisdom, joy, grace, mercy, power & so much more whether it be in your room, your car or wherever it may be.
As I was on my way home from work today, I was reflecting on my life these days. I was debating on whether or not I should pull over to make a video or just wait to get home to post on my blog. In the midst of it, one of my close friends who I love dearly messaged me & I felt led to share my thoughts with her. After she listened to my message on WhatsApp, she shared what a blessing it was to her & I give God all of the glory. If you believe this post blesses you, please don’t hold back from sharing it with others who could possibly be blessed by it too.
I remember being with someone who I swore up & down I could help change but instead it only sucked the life out of me in the process. I was so focused on helping him that I lost sight of me & what God was trying to do in my life. I knew deep down it was time to let go but I refused to. I felt I could speed up the process by “helping” God. I would ask family & friends to pray for him. I would send him links to all these different sermons/messages I found on YouTube. Send him scriptures. I would pray & negotiate with God – Yes! I said negotiate – I would tell God I’d do this or that if only He would change his heart & help him see things for what they truly were but the one who needed to see things for what they were & who needed a heart change was ME!! Of course my ex did also but I was much more concerned about him that I didn’t realize how I needed to focus on me & my relationship with God. Here I was entertaining a relationship that I clearly knew (but refused to accept) wasn’t pleasing God.
