I Don’t Know About You – But I Often Wonder How I’m Gonna Meet My Soulmate.

So, Do You Ever Think About How You’re Going to meet your purpose mate/ helpmate/ Soulmate? Or if you already met them and just didn’t know it was them.

I’m a hopeless romantic and I have all these different scenarios played out in my head of how we’re going to meet from a Beyoncé & Jay-Z concert to us both traveling abroad with a group of friends.

Whatever it be – I just don’t see it right now. I don’t know if it’s because where I live or I just don’t go out enough. But honestly ya’ll during the winter I’m like a bear I hibernate. I become a homebody, and try to get everything I can accomplish on my vision board that’s a goal.

And my dating life sucks – sooo it’s whatever. And I’m not in a rush to get married, and go be with anyone. I just want security and the feeling of being safe, and wanted. You know?

I think a lot of the times we’re with someone just for instant gratification, and not for long haul, and through it all (the ups + downs).

I recently had a guy tell me he couldn’t see us together long term because I didn’t play video games, dungeon + dragons and didn’t like anime as much as he did.

(gentle reminder: comparing what you want to what others have is very damaging)

So, he intentionally did things to push me away, and I didn’t see it or recognize it at first – but I did eventually. Also, he didn’t want anything serious after about 4 months of dating. I was highly taken aback. So, I removed myself from the situation cause I know my self- worth (and I refuse to settle for anything less than I know I deserve)

This is important to remember: “you can give love, if you never been loved. Especially, if you never had an example set before you.”

I know it’s not me (ladies + gents quit blaming yourself for fail relationships, sometimes things just don’t workout because you both are in different places in your life, matured differently both emotionally and mentally, and some people are dealing with turmoil from the way they’ve been raised. )

it’s crazy how some people allow the smallest things to deter you from what you both feel could be potentially real.

But, I guess he could be the best thing I never had. Right? Well, we’ll see 

Until next time.

Truth Is – When I’m With My Mom She Can’t Go 5 Minutes Without Speaking To Somebody.

Have you ever been out with somebody and every time you turn around they are speaking to someone in the store, or carrying on a whole entire conversation? Like you ain’t even there. And what’s the worst is that I drove. That was me with my mom two days ago grocery shopping.

We simply went into the supermarket for 5 things – okay maybe 10 and before I even knew it. She had already seen 3 people she knew. “I’m like goodness gracious, this is gonna turn into a long shopping trip. My worst nightmare.

Oh, to top it off. She had me helping people like I worked in the store. Smh! Gotta love your parents man.

(Just give me the keys, and I’ll go sit in the car. lol)

Then it got me to thinking – even through I am a people person, and I do like to chat and talk to people and do a lot of networking and such.

 How do you want to be remembered?

Let’s Talk About Consistency. The Truth Is…

The truth is I’ve been having some issues with it this week. I’ve been feeling slightly discouraged because I haven’t raised much money to fund my expansion project of my stationery company.  Out of my total goal I’ve only raised $20. So you start to wonder do people support and believe in your vision? or are you just your biggest supporter at the end of the day?

but I have to remember just because I get discouraged doesn’t give me the right to give up, and we have to continuously push through even when we do’t feel like it.

I’ll leave you with some words I got from a newsletter I received that got me all the way together – that came in the nick of time.

When You Don’t Have The Words – Just Write.

There’s this Hillsong United song that says,

“Spirit lead me where my trust is without boarders. Let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me.”

I got to the point where I didn’t want to sing this song because I was drowning. Drowning in my issues, my concerns, my worries, my fears. So, singing a song titled “Oceans” was not something I was down for.

Then I realized that asking the Lord to lead me where my trust is without borders doesn’t necessarily mean that I get more problems. It means that my problems won’t have me. Whether I get more or less problems, the song is stating that I am giving my problems to God. May we trust God in the small and big things. May our trust be so strong in Christ that there are no borders, no limit to our belief and faith in Jesus.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

When I felt like I was drowning because I was so overwhelmed by my problems, I should have stopped looking around me. Talking on the phone to a friend, relative, significant other for hours will not give you peace the way God can in a second. Too often we turn to people before we turn to God. Go to the throne before you go to the phone. 

When you are starting to drown, remember Peter: 

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.  But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:28-31. 

If we keep our eyes on Christ, our eyes are not on our problems.  
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in youIsaiah 26:3

Why do we doubt? Why do we doubt that the Savior cannot save us? Nothing is too hard for God. Give him your problems, whether it be big or small. When we are slipping and we call out to him, he saves us immediately. (Psalm 94:18-19). 

When we lift our hands up in surrender, God grabs us and gives us authority over the enemy, over our problems, over our issues. (Luke 10:19). We can do the impossible! (Matthew 19:26).  We can walk over all the things that have tried to drown us. We can walk on water. 

The more we walk with God, the closer communion and fellowship we have with the savior, the more willing we are to do whatever he has called us. We have to fix our eyes on Christ, not on our problems. We have to accept his help (even if it’s something you have to remind yourself to do alllll the time), and not allow ourselves to drown when there is a savior holding out his hand to save us. When we are walking over our problems, on our oceans, having trust in God, then we are more prone to letting him lead us to doing his will. 

fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

This Is The Day – That The Lord Has Made

I will rejoice, and be glad in it.

This is the day that the Lord has made
I will rejoice and be glad in it
This is the day, this is the day
That the Lord has made

– Psalms 118:24

Sunday take aways –

  1. God does his best work during bleakness
  2. weakness makes you turn to vices
  3. you need someone on the same frequency as you – you don’t need people on your journey that counter juxtapose your mission,
  4. It’s dangerous to be in relationship with people that don’t know your size (size shoe, size clothing etc.)
  5. If they don’t know your size – it can be somewhat insulting. The things they can give you can be handed off / passed off as insults.
  6. you gotta stop indicting people for wanting to start somewhere.
  7. everybody has a journey
  8. expectations encumbers people
  9. even the most successful people has once started on page one.
  10. A big thing is going a whole lotta little things.

Give Us This Day, Our ….

Most days I wake up, I meditate and pray first and reflect on how I’m going to get my day started.

So, here’s my prayer for today –

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you, we thank you for last nights rest,

Thank you for allowing us to see a new day,

thank you for this opportunity to have a better day than yesterday,

we ask you to continue to cover us and watch over us,

We pray to go with positive mindsets and peaceful spirits,

I pray you remove any distractions  that are in the way of our purpose,

So that we can remain on your path of God,

I love you,

and we give you all the honor and the glory,

because you are worthy of all the praise

in your heavenly name I pray
