I Knew Today Was For Me – ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

This post is dedicated to May 30th, 2018 (yesterday). 💚💚

The morning crisp air welcomed me as I walked outside my door.

As I walked to my car, the soft breeze hovered then grazed across my face.

The sun stunningly glowed ever so gently over the horizontal layer of clouds.

I Knew Today was for Me. 

Walking out the day.

Giving God/Jesus all of the praise.

Sitting outside during my break.


Baby herons,

Flying over me.

In groups of 20.

Looking graceful as they glisten across the Texas sky.

Transparently bright. Truly all white.

I feel The Holy Spirit tell me that this divine moment is more than right.

I Knew Today was for Me. 

Reaching my destination after a long day of work.


Yet .. EXCITED within.

After being drawn to check the mailbox…


Official legal documentation…

I am still at awe that I am witnessing my divine destiny and purpose unravel right in front of my eyes. I can only give thanks to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit for making this possible. ❤️ 3 years ago around this time, I was given insight on who I was created to be. It was not easy waiting but God preserved me and enabled patience within me! Thank you Lord!!!!

We all have a purpose in this life. I want to make sure that mine continues to glorify The Lord and help His people along the way. Whatever your purpose in, trust me that God will ensure that you have ALL that you need to walk into it. 🙏

(a little words of wisdom before you go 😃 )


Resist the Devil and Rejoice in the Lord : Depression

Depression is defined in part as “a hollow; being in a low state; a state of sadness; dejection.” The real cause of depression is not where we are, but our attitude about where we find ourselves. That’s why the devil wants to make you feel like you’re worthless and rejected.

But if you don’t let the devil impress you with what he does, then he can’t oppress you; and if he can’t oppress you, then he can’t depress you.

I think one of the best ways to resist the devil and achieve victory over depression is to let the Holy Spirit lead you into a time of rejoicing. The enemy wants you to look at the negative and have a pity party, but the Holy Spirit wants you to look at the positive and just have a party! Living life and truly LOVING the life that you have been given.

Philippians 4:4 says to “rejoice in the Lord always.” When we’re focused on God, rejoicing in Him, depression has no place in us. So the next time the enemy tries to make you feel low or sad, choose to rejoice in the Lord!

Speak positive affirmations over yourself when you first wake up, as you get ready for your day, during lunch… pretty much 24/7!!!

The words we speak withhold so much power & authority.

Do not give the devil any time to squeeze his lies in your mind.

Think of it similar to working out. 💪🏾

To gain those swollen muscles and chiseled arms/legs that you desperately want, you have to consistently work at it.

Training and building your body to mature into the next phase of growth.

It’s the same thing with the mind.

I always post sticky notes of self-love quotes on my bathroom mirror and throughout my apartment.

Just an visual reminder.

It’s good to also visualize the positivity on top of speaking it.

Again: Do not give up!!!!!

You are loved. 🌹

You are sought after. ❤️

You were made to overcome this!

Once you lose that fear, realizing that our loving God is in control & He wants the BEST for you…. everything will change.

Prayer: God, You are wonderful and amazing, which is why I can rejoice in You always. Depression has no place in my life because I am filled with You! 🙏

Let’s end this week on an amazing note! ✨ With our heads up high and our minds focused on Jesus. Knowing that we are children of Christ! The world and the devil may be against us, but God is FOR us. None can overrule The Ruler Himself. 🙌As I always say, stay encouraged!!!! The devil cannot take us out, that is why he tries to convince us to do it ourselves. Resist the devil and Rejoice in The Lord! 😃

Leaving an example down below!!!

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.

Reblog: Charlottesville Wake Up Call — BeautyBeyondBones

Check out BeautyBeyondBones’s blog post called “Charlottesville Wake Up Call” …

It is a deep and sore topic that surely needs to be discussed/acknowledged by all.

I didn’t want to write this post. A topic of this magnitude, and the tragedy that befell our nation on Saturday was something that I cannot find the adequate words to describe. I was asked by numerous readers to write about Saturday’s Charlottesville terrorism, and truthfully, I’m sick to my stomach thinking about the grossly […]

Note To Self : GET IT GIRL! 🙌

Starting your day with a positive mindset is truly critical. What you implement into your mind during the first, early hours of your day can really mold/reflect how you will walk out the rest of your day.


If you wake up in dread and anxiety; the actions that you perform will reflect that.

Our thoughts lead to actions which lead to various repercussions that we now have to face due to said actions.

Another element that is not talked about often is: intentions. I believe that our intentions have tremendous power as well. Because intentions reflect the reality of where our hearts lie.


Last night, I decided that I need some work regarding the topic of: self-love. I realized that I do not express as much self-love to myself as I should. My flesh naturally associates self-love to being vain or arrogant. Which is NOT the case. Of course with today’s society, the world will try to make you question not only:

  • Who you are,
  • How you look,
  • What others think about you,
  • Etc….

The list goes on….

We all have unwanted thoughts that come to our minds and we must speak against them. We cannot let them stay or muster within, because it will start to nitpick at you… slowly growing into a serious problem.


Those hurtful and negative thoughts can seriously lead you to depression and death itself IF you let them. The devil would love for us all to drive off a cliff, ending something that is already temporary. (Yes, this world is temporary. It is not our HOME.)


As I am in flesh, along with you guys, I constantly have to remind myself that The Lord needs us to realize the amount of power that we withhold. We have been given the power to move mountains and I declare to remove/move all of the negativity that the devil is trying to mount upon me and my fellow family in Christ.


SO TODAY, I am taking charge and will not settle for any negative thoughts about myself or others around me. I will solely focus on who God created me to be and walking out in His Divine Authority that was given to be by Jesus Christ. This morning I wrote a note to myself stating:

As being a child of the Most High,

  • I am WORTHY!
  • I have blissful access to God’s Divine Authority!! *high fives self* haha

All of that not only sounds powerful, but it is POWERFUL!



Speak positivity into you and your families lives today! You have access to Divine Authority! 🙂

The Right Time To Walk Away

Question of the day: “When is the right time to walk away?

I have been dabbling on this question for months regarding my current job. Not only has there been mental challenges but spiritual challenges as well during my time of being at this company. I am a very level headed individual who evaluates all variables of the situation and analyzes each one before I make any moves.



My first impression of the company was very eye opening. It is a small business that had a total of 8 employees when I started last August. As a back story, I took a year off from working to get more involved in the community and to take initiative on prepping to become a full time missionary.



I had no idea that there was a raging atheist who belittles all human beings that crossed her path, waiting for me as I arrived. What made matters worse, was that the CEO(s) were very much aware of it and thought (still think) it is okay to have someone like that work for them. The same day I walked in that place and ever since; I was ritually told if I wore a “Jesus Loves Me” t-shirt or disclosed anything about Christ, that it would be offensive to “others”.


I didn’t even ask about the religious “rules” and “do not’s” of the company. The vile words that were being spilled upon me were extremely inappropriate and were personally offensive to me. In the same day, I witnessed this dehumanizing person talk down to a younger gentleman telling him that he was retarded, stupid, no good and was basically useless; not only in the job environment but in life altogether. This was not only daily, or weekly, but full time… non-stop. I’ve even witnessed her saying that she understands why parents drown their children. The list of the disgusting things that have been said could go on for days.


I got home that night wondering, “God, what did I get myself into? What type of company am I working for?

I know most corporations have the rule of “no religion in the workplace”. Mind you, this business is a “mom and pop” business. The CEO’s are a married couple who are in their 40s’; who also told me that they grew up in the church. When it comes to small businesses as such, they have the power to make their own rules and violations.



But for some reason if I ever wore a “I (no reference to you) am loved by Christ” shirt/pendant/etc… it would be “offensive”. There was only ONE person who openly disclosed how much they hated my Lord and Savior. This person kept mentioning how a shirt or any Christian paraphernalia would be offensive to her, but never considered that the vile things she said offended others as well. (double standards)

What is also crazIER about the situation is, this said person talks about going to church every other Sunday with her boyfriend. So you can tolerate hearing about Jesus at church but having a shirt that says “He loves ME” offends you?



There is a lot more that has happened over the year that I have been apart of this business. I have witnessed the worst turnover rate ever while working here. The previous people that have left, personally contacted me after the fact, mentioning that they left because of this said person. Over 15 people have left within 6 months of this year. 9 of them were for the same position. That should say A LOT.


You guys… the moral of this post is I became so worn out. Day in and day out, my spirit was being “masked” while being in the office. My energy was depleted. I was becoming someone that God did not make me to be. I let people say horrible things about everything that I stand for. I have never been in a corporation that did not have a legit HR. HR is around for matters just like these and worse.



Over this year, I have personally sat my boss aside letting her know the damage it was doing to me and her company. Each time, my boss told me that she would do something about it and never did. One of the times, she even said that she heard me being verbally abused but did not want to “step on anyone’s toes”.
I know that there are many times that God keeps us somewhere for a reason. If it is to be a witness to someone or be a light altogether… it is for a purpose. I was learning to endure hardship… taking many mental notes. After constantly praying, listening and meditating… I knew it was officially the right time to walk away. I have learned all that I could from this place. Staying any longer would not be healthy. It is like being in an abusive relationship for so long, where you start to believe the lies that “it is all you are worth”.



WELP, yesterday I put my two weeks notice in!! I already feel so much better and relieved. I have enough money saved to cover months ahead for rent. I thank God for the courage to finally break loose. Hallelujah! 

SMILE! It’s The Least You Can Do!

Everyone knows how to smile. It’s one of the greatest gifts God has given us. A smile makes people feel good, and people look so beautiful when they smile. When the joy in your life is obvious, it rubs off on others. But when you keep God’s joy locked inside you and don’t allow it to show on your face, you’re depriving those around you of a pleasant and refreshing experience.


Most people really don’t understand how expressing joy will change their circumstances and, perhaps, the lives of others. Living your life with the joy of the Lord will chase off negative, depressing circumstances. And when we have His joy deep down inside of us, we can’t help but put it on display by smiling!


One act of kindness that delights the Holy Spirit is being kind to our enemies. It actually confuses them on the fact that you are going out of your way to be nice to them even when they know they do not deserve it. The Lord tells us to love and bless our enemies. Which we all know, requires Holy strength to do. To actually perform this act sounds easier than it is, but it pleases God to the highest extent.

” 38 You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. If someone slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also; 40 if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well; …” Matthew 5: 38-40

I never would have thought that smiling was such a serious matter, but God has shown me how revolutionary a simple smile can be. Expressing joy through the calm delight of smiling brings good things into your own life and shares the joy and light of the Lord with others, so smile! It is the least you can do. (and it’s FREE 🙂 )

I pray that my readers have a wonderful Thursday.

Stay content.


You are an OVERCOMER!!

Thursday Devotional: “Wait with Patience” by Joyce Meyer

Good Morning fellow readers!

Friday is only one day away, BUT I surely need a “pick me up” to get me through this day that is laid out in front of me.

Reading a daily devotional helps me tremendously. It gives me a certain topic/scripture to meditate on during work, during lunch and even after work. The one for today is an excerpt by Joyce Meyer about waiting with patience. Patience is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit and without a doubt, I ask the Lord for more of it each day. As the pressures of life continue to build, so should our patience with God and his will for our lives.

Take a look and have a wonderful day everyone!


Many people want change, but they don’t want to go through the waiting process. But the truth is, waiting is a given, we are going to wait. The question is, are we going to wait the wrong or right way? If we wait the wrong way, we’ll be miserable; but if we decide to wait God’s way, we can become patient and actually enjoy the wait.

It takes practice, but as we let God help us in each situation, we develop patience, which is one of the most important Christian virtues. Patience is a fruit of the Spirit. It’s developed only under trial, so we must not run from difficult situations.

As we develop patience, the Bible says we finally feel completely satisfied, lacking nothing. Even our relationship with God involves progressive changes. We learn to trust Him in a deeper way by going through many experiences that require us to wait longer than we’d like.

Trust me, the waiting may be hard, but it will make you stronger. The benefits that patience brings are certainly worth any uncomfortable wait!

Prayer Starter: God, I want to change and grow deeper in my relationship with You. I understand that this means developing patience, but I know that I will grow stronger as You develop patience in me.”

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.
