The other day I plugged my numbers into a health app the estimated that because of my habits, health wise instead my current age of 38 I am behaving like someone that is 20 years older. I say no way, to that mess! My Uncle Ray I love him, I truly do. He is nearly 80 years old but looks like he is no older than maybe 60. He told me from as far back as I can remember to take care of my health; to watch what I ate and to exercise. I didn’t really take his advice during the last decade. I enjoyed myself and now have a work…
Making that Necessary 180 Degree Turn
Lord, today I confess that I have made a 180 degree turn and am resting peacefully in your presence. My re-born sealed spirit is already yielded and bonded to you. I now submit my mind/soul and body to be led. Have your will with me Lord. I thank you for your grace and new mercies this morning. I thank you for your unmerited favor and unconditional agape love. I know I am your beloved because of this knowledge; I walk boldly into your courts with praise. I stand in awe and utter reverence because you loved me so much that you gave me a savior, a redeemer and a big…
Don’t Discount Your Past
When I look back at my life so far, what I have gone through, what I have done and where I have been I just have to say thank you God!
The Positive Effects of Change, I have a Different Attitude!
I think one of the most powerful things that have had to happen due to my relocation, is the need for me to start over in a number of areas of my life. I actually have no other choice but to if I am to succeed moving forward in any assignment God places in my responsibility to steward. The Lord has given me fresh eyes, and revelation. I am being stretched and have moved away from my comfort zone, New York, home. During this season, God has humbled me on so many levels, and I am still being humbled and pruned. I love this season I am in. Though there…
It’s Me Oh Lord, Standing in Need of Prayer
“Don’t focus on your weaknesses; focus on your God.” – Pastor Joel Osteen Yesterday, I received a report about my health that essentially shook my world. The news even came with pictures! I am still trying to wrap my head around it. In a sense, I honestly can’t because if I do I will open a door for fear to enter in rather than let my faith to grow from within. I think I can actually list what I am experiencing in the natural as the physical manifestation of things I know that have been going on in the spirit. There are dreams and things that I was supposed to…
Connecting the dots… I already know you know how to drive.
Friday, August 30, 2013 Connecting the dots… I already know you know how to drive. Today, I will be going for my second attempt at passing my road test in Texas. I am confident I will pass it this time. Amazingly, I have never felt so much at peace about a road test then I do today. The Coach is a bit concerned because he is not sure if he will be able to leave the job early enough to get me to the testing site for my appointment. I am confident he will, so I am not sweating it. Too many things have been lining themselves up for me not to…
Why I really don’t think it’s OK to use the “N” or “B” words.
September 28, 2013 (Facebook Status Update) – I just took a look at my FB feed and was a bit disgusted. No matter how you say it or spell it the “N” word means a low life human being. And the “B” word means a female dog; which is an animal that may at times eat its own young and feces, and offer its hind-parts to accept any male. If you, allow yourself to be called or call someone who you care about either … You are calling them out of their name. Don’t allow yourself to be defined LESS than God’s best. I just had to say something. Getting…
The 24 Hour Rule: Win or Lose
This past Friday October 4th, the HS Football team that my husband assistant coaches here in Houston, TX lost its first game of the regular season. Before this game we were 3-0 (we were actually 4-0; one game was cancelled by our opponent due to inclement weather and other things.) This loss stung just a bit more because the game was played against our closest district rivals. We had never lost a game at home against them, it was homecoming for us, and the game was televised locally. Our team was recently featured in a local HS athletes’ magazine as the cover story. Last year we had an undefeated regular season;…
Taking the Next Step to Becoming Healthier
Today I did something significant for myself. I got up this morning with taking care of me in mind; mind, spirit, body and soul. After eating breakfast, and spending some devotional time with the Lord, I went on my one hour Fitness Walk around our community. Generally I listen to “Praise and Worship” music or a personal development audio book. Today I decided to listen to “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg. It was recommended to me by one of my mentors. The book focuses on teaching women how to help one another and empowers them by giving advice on how they can pursue their dreams and ambitions. Sheryl Sandberg was…
