Poem: At Peace

“Growing at peace.

With myself.

With life.

With the Divine power of the Holy Spirit.

No matter the time.

No matter the place.

God’s trickling anointing continuously shimmers in my face.

It shines even during the “darkest” times of the night.

There to comfort me…

…To encourage me.

…To bring provision.

Oh! How I want to explore it beyond the limits of my flesh.

Years ago,

Praying that God would ascend me.

Delivering me from this crooked world.

Just like Enoch.

Just like Elijah.

I am an alien

I am foreign.

But surely not torn.

Realizing that there is more work to be done.

Strapped with the armor of Christ.

With my breastplate of righteousness.

With The Word as my sword,

With God by side,

I am unstoppable.

I am at peace with myself.”

Poem : Waiting by God’s Door

“As time continues to go on,

My Spirit is being more compelled,

To my TRUE Divine calling.

I have been preserved by the grace of God,

To be where I am now.

Mentally.

Spiritually.

Now as I analyze my life,

I am at a crossroads that I’ve came to before.

Corporate America.

Slaving for the man.

The system.

Partaking in things that do not help the Kingdom of God.

Waste.

Deceit.

Consuming parts of the world,

When my Spirit wants to active who I truly am.

Calling.

Calling.

Waiting for it to pick up.

Move.

Run.

Fly…. onto greater.

Better.

Divine greatness. One day soon.

Waiting by God’s door…. to open.”

< em>Inspired by true events of my life. While working for the system, I’d rather be out working for The Lord. Being a missionary. Changing lives. I did not apply for this job or duty. I was called by God to do so. Waiting for His Door of opportunity to open.

Poem : Windows

“Windows.

Opportunities at arms reach.

Desperately awaiting to be on the other side.

Not only being tempted of the greatness,

But ever so wanting to participate.

Anointing flowing around me,

…… Within me.

Feeling powerful,

Yet so helpless.

Ready for the window to open.

Waiting for God’s command to open,

The sweet aroma of something new.”

DIY: Baby Shower Cupcake Idea

I previously posted a DIY Chalkboard idea that I did for my bestfriend’s baby shower. What I also made for her future newborn were these DIY cupcakes made from baby clothes.

They looked like they would be extremely simple to do. Yet, they were a little more complex than I expected. lol I stopped counting the amount of time that I had to re-do them.

 

Neither the less, it was a perfect baby shower gift for a mom-to-be. All you need to create this idea is:

  1. Cupcake liners
  2. Baby Onesie’s or shirt
  3. Baby socks
  4. A box to present them in

I will say that the bigger the size of the baby clothes, the harder it is to roll them into the cupcake.

 

Steps:

 

  • You will lay out the shirt that you are going to roll.
  • Fold it in half.
  • Proceed to fold to make it as “skinny” and long as you can.
  • Once you have that folded and laying flat, you will begin to roll up a baby sock inside the shirt.

It takes a lot of playing around to do to get it just right. Take your time 🙂 Check out Pinterest for instructional video on how to do it.

I HIGHLY recommend it!!

My friend and I are feen’s for anchor themed items. We both got matching anchor tattoos (in our youth) due to the love for the ocean. I couldn’t help but to order a baby set for her daughter. It came with an anchor t-shirt, white bottoms, and anchor bandana for the baby.

 

 

I went to Walmart to get a box for the presentation. I couldn’t help but to draw on top of the box as well. Check it out!!

 

 

Hope I got your creativity senses flowing on what you would do for a friend, family member or yourself! 🙂

DIY: Baby Shower Gift

A few weeks ago, one of my oldest and dearest friend’s had her FIRST baby shower!! Coming from someone who loves to partake in DIY crafts, I knew I had to make something extremely unique and special for her daughter Aubree! I instantly remembered that I had some more chalkboard spray paint leftover from a previous project and some spare planks of wood that I found.

 

 

To make this simple DIY Chalkboard, you will need:

  1. Chalkboard paint or spray paint
  2. Chalk! (of course) haha
  3. A piece of wood or something with a hard, flat surface.

That’s it!! Best part about chalkboard paint, it is extremely universal. Just make sure the surface that you are spraying it on is smooth and not rigid. I sanded the wood scrap that I had before applying the paint onto it.

 

With some prayer and determination, it turned out GREAT!!!!! She had a princess theme and I wanted to add a unicorn horn at the end to compliment the theme.

 

Christmas is coming up!! If you guys want to make something simple but creative, I dare you to try it out. 🙂 Practice makes “perfect”.

 


The Word: Food For My Spirit

Reading The Word of God has changed my life vastly. Very quickly. It nourishes my soul and provides Godly wisdom. Throughout the various amounts of life situations, the Bible tends to have a story and an answer for each & every single one of them.

 

 

People tend to think that since The Word is from the “past”, that it is not valuable nor relevant enough to help us through the situations that we face today. Well I am here to say that is simply wrong!
 
One thing I love about WordPress is the community that precedence itself here. It’s another way for my spirit to feed on the word. By conversing with other believers and reading their opinions about spirituality.

 
________________________________________
God tells us that the more time we spend meditating on and speaking His Word, the more we will see the benefits in our everyday lives and even have a closer relationship with Him. He even promises we’ll be prosperous and successful! (See Joshua 1:8).

 
 
I can testify to this because I have made it through many trials and even devastating times by believing and confessing the Word of God over my life. There’s something powerful that happens when we speak His Word out loud. It’s the way we learn to purposely think right thoughts, especially when we make the Scriptures personal confessions of faith.

 
It’s great to read the Word and receive it in your heart, but when you confess it out loud, you actively interact with what God says and release its power into your life.

 
I encourage you to spend time reading and meditating on God’s Word, lining your thoughts up with it. But I also urge you to speak the Word. 
You can make up your mind to work toward changing your life by saying what God says. Read His Word and speak it over your circumstances today.

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Prayer Starter: “God, I want to release the full power of Your Word into my life. Along with reading and thinking about Your Word, I choose today to speak it over my life.” – Please set a prayer for those affected by the church shooting down in south Texas. I am praying that they do not resent God nor the church due to someone else’s senseless actions.

Seeking Wisdom : Proverbs 4

Good Morning Fellow Readers,

Although I am currently at work, I am beginning my day with this word from the book of Proverbs and a cup of coffee (of course) lol.

 

The beginning of wisdom is: Get [skillful and godly] wisdom [it is preeminent]! And with all your acquiring, get understanding [actively seek spiritual discernment, mature comprehension, and logical interpretation].

‭‭PROVERBS‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

 

Whatever comes our way today, we have to ensure not to lean into our own understanding on the situation. Instead, mediate and talk to God regarding it. Do not let the it steal your PEACE that has been established within you!

 

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Aliyah Day : What A Prophetic Birthday! 102717

Yesterday was the last day of October in 2017.  I can say it truly was a fantastic month!!!!! My love for October doesn’t just come from the delightful thoughts of the fair, falling leaves, cool air & pumpkin spice lattes.
 

It comes from the fact that I was born on the 27th of October (which was last Friday). So, naturally it’s dear to my heart.

My birthday this year, fell on the Israeli holiday called “Aliyah Day” (YomHaAliyah) 🇮🇱. Aliyah in Hebrew means to “ascend / go up“. I am still completely mind blown due to the fact that “The Ascender” is the prophetic name that God gave/revealed to me over two years ago. 





Aliyah Day represents the day that the Israelites entered the promise land with the Ark of the Convenant. (A day full of compromise and fulfillment!!)

As you know prior to this day, Moses and the Israelites escaped from the grip of Pharoh’s hand by the grace of God! Crossing through the Jordan into a new journey of life. Other situations happened afterwards, wondering all around the promise land (40yrs) before actually getting to it. 

 
So my birthday being on Aliyah Day….. WOW 😮 


HOW AMAZING!!!!!!

 

As a kid when you think about your birthday, you always wonder what gifts you will be receiving that year. I know that I used to get so obsessive over my birthday, I really had to learn to calm it down. lol

I used to get so crazed about birthday’s…. I even made my parents give me presents on my SISTER’S birthday’s too. 

haha It’s safe to say, I no longer do that nor is my mindset like that. 

 

NOW … this birthday was surely one of the GREATEST gifts that I could possibly ask for. 

(Best part about it… I didn’t even ask!!)

I believe everything that happens has meaning to it. 

No coincidences.
 
This prophetic day had three consecutive 7’s within the date on the American and Hebrew calendar:

  • October 27th, 2017 – Turning 25 (2+5=7) : 777
  • 7 Cheshvan 5778 : 777

 
With 7 being the spiritual representation of completion and finished work… I know there is greatness in the midst of manifestation. 
 

As some know, I have a true love for nature and the great outdoors. I wanted to spend time within God’s nature on my birthday.

Welp….. weather convinced me otherwise. 


In Texas, it was 34 degrees as the low. Extremely windy and cloudy throughout the entire day! Freezing rain even began to pour out of nowhere. I honestly tried to rebuke the weather so I can do what I intended. 



GET ON THE LAKE. lol.

 
It was interesting that out of the whole month, MY day so happened to be the coldest day of October. Yet, the next two days were gloriously sunny and radiant. Again, I asked The Lord for understanding of such. 

  • Friday – super cold/cloudy : drastic change
  • Saturday – sunny/warm 
  • Sunday – gloriously warm/sunny : high 80s

It was a subtle reminder to myself that Jesus was crucified on a Friday but joy rolled on through that Sunday! 😊

We all know that Halloween was yesterday. I actually used to celebrate my birthday and Halloween at once. It made it easier to have parties that had “great” turn outs. As I began walking closer with The Lord, I had to re-analyze my intentions of doing such a thing.

  • Does it align with God?
  • Does it please God?
  • Why am I celebrating my birth of a great, bountiful life with the world’s way of celebrating sorcery, witchcraft .. etc?

No matter how much my friends pressed me to combine the two this year, I did not give in. 😇 

What’s for the world, isn’t best for ME

All in all, I had a great birthday month. I got to hang out with the people I love the most. My family bought me a kayak of my own. I got to see another year that was not promised. Thank you God for that! Aliyah Day 2017 will always hold such a precious meaning in my heart and spirit. ❤️❤️❤️
