Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Word of The Day



Today is St. Patrick’s Day ☘️ and I am not sure what the true meaning of this holiday is. I do like green and I am always known for my love of “flamboyant” colors🌈🎨✨. A lot of people take part of this day to drink, spend time with friends/family, attend cookouts ; and of course, more partying! I do not know much about the Irish culture but we all have heard the tales about “leprechauns” and random pots of gold hidden at the bottom of rainbows. When bills and due dates are coming up, finding random pots of gold sounds pretty nice. lol I don’t believe in leprechauns but I do believe in the One who has all power and who is rich, in more ways than one.

Rich in life

Rich in grace/favor

Rich enough to give His only begotten son so that we may have eternal life with him.

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s day? If so, what is your favorite /activity to partake in? 😊  All in all, I pray that your day is filled with an abundance of anointing (not leprechaun magic) and grace from the Lord. ✨

Today’s word of the day from the bible app is:
As for God, His way is blameless. The word of the LORD is tested [it is perfect, it is faultless]; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.” PSALM 18:30 AMP

Whatever you are facing today, let God be your refuge! Enjoy your Friday loves!!


Strength of My Heart

Today’s Verse of The Day: 

My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the rock and strength of my heart and my portion forever.PSALM 73:26 AMP

I am challenging myself to meditate on today’s word of the day. As the winds of life start to blow harder than the day before; I know that I can cling onto the Lord himself for support and strength. 

Enjoy your Wednesday my friends!! You are all in my prayers. 



Now, In This Moment & Forever More

Each day as it gets further and further away from January 1st, 2017 I think to myself. “What is taking me so long?!“. As time itself is an essence, I can see it slip away by the minute.

Until today, I have yet to post anything for 2017.

Have been stalling?!? 


As much as my spirit has been longing to post, I have been pretty occupied with something that we all love called work.

I am not sure about you guys, but I have a habit of getting into this thing called “zombie mode” when I get home from work. Nothing but SLEEP sounds good to me. Frankly enough, it is extremely hard for me to shake out of it as well.


I tend to get caught up in my day to day activities and forget to take a break and dedicate my mental space to Jesus.

When I finally do just that…

I close my eyes.

Take a deep breathe.

And listen ever so closely.

As the room becomes quiet, it is also just as loud. I can hear the Lord’s wisdom deep within my mind and body.

It is in tune with my soul.

In this very moment of solitude I image myself as this woman in the picture above. Stretched out in perfect serenity. Looking upon the glistening body of water ; (representing sprinkles of blessings that the Lord has so graciously provided). Blessings from the first day that I was born into this world all the way up to this exact hour. I can look down into the water and see His work being written along the waves.







There’s a song by Kirk Franklin called “It Would Take All Day”. It describes how long it would physically take to express thanksgiving unto the Lord for all of the amazing things that he has done. As fantastic as our Lord is, he surely deserves praise and worship from each and every one of us. It is one of the sole purposes that we are here.
Now, in this moment withholds truth and understanding. For I know I will not always understand what is going on in this orchestra of life; But the truth of God will always stand. No matter how chaotic each day exceeds to; I must continue to stop and align my thoughts with the Lord’s.

In this moment and forever more.

Stay encouraged and Encourage someone else along the way.
