Why I Love Jesus

My sister called me out on Facebook to participate in the "Why I Love Jesus" challenge. I love Jesus because he first loved me. I love Jesus because he allowed me to see another day. He kept the blood running through my veins. He allowed my heart to continue beating. He allows me and my family to reach our destinations during the day and return home safely.

I was 6 or 7 years old when I was introduce to him. I was fascinated with him until my grandmother died. I was angry with him because he took the one person who I felt loved me the most who I loved the most away from me. As a child I questioned him. Why did so many leave me, walk out on me and turn their backs on me? Why did you take my grandmother away? I couldn't understand why and he did not provide me an answer. As a result, I turned my back on him.

For years I strayed away. Stopped going to church and reading the bible. Nonetheless, God kept me covered and wrapped his arms around me. There were times I felt alone, not realizing he was there all the time. I love him for never leaving or forsaking me. I have made some bad choices as a young adult. Some that I have not forgiven myself for, but he is a forgiving God. I love him because he never judged me when others judged me.

Growing up I could have been lost. I was on the road to destruction, but God is so good. He placed the right person in my life at the right time. I am forever grateful. God also gave me the greatest gifts ever, my daughter's. They are my blessings. Once I had my first child I decided to rekindle my relationship with God.

I am a single mom and there are day's when I want to throw in the towel. There are days when I have no idea how I manage to give them all they need as well as what they want. They are healthy, they dont give me to much trouble and they do well in school.at the end of the day I know it's nobody but Jesus.  Won't he do it. The enemy tried to attack my future, my household and my health, but I know a man who can fix all things. He fights my battles. So when I feel like giving up,  I remember why I held on for so long.

I thank him in advance for what he will do next in my life and my girls life. I thank him for what he has planned for my life and girls life.

Who Do You Identify With In The Sea Of Life?

While attending Medgar Evers College , I was introduced to the worlds renowned author  Ms. Iyanla Vanzant . My public speaking professor began each class with a daily meditation from Acts of Faith which was authored by Ms. Vanzant. Eventually, I purchased this book and a few others. Years later, I continue to read the Acts of Faith. Photo Credit: RaisingBrownGirls While sitting at my desk, I turned to today's meditation and my eyes made it's way to the bottom of the page. The message stated "I know who I am in the sea of life." After reading it, I reversed it and asked myself two questions. "Do you know who you are in the sea of life?" "Who do you identify with in the sea of life?" My eyes scrolled back to the top of the page and I began to read today's daily meditation. As I am reading, I realize I have encountered almost every fish that was mentioned. This made me think about the people I have crossed paths with in the past,

A Rainbow of My Own

While sitting in the middle of my bed after waking up for the second time today, guess what I saw on my bedroom wall? A rainbow. Before you ask, no there was nothing in my window and there was nothing on my television stand that allowed any sort of reflection. I was baffled and amazed. Yet I continued to stare at it until it faded. I believe it was God's way of getting my attention. His way of communicating and relaying his message to me. There have been days when life seems to get the best of me. I have so much on my mind. It seems as though it is constantly racing. It never slows down or stop. As a result, I often have sleepless nights. There have been times when I wanted to give up which was the easiest thing to do. However, I know that quitting is never an option and not the example I want to set for my two brown girls. I know it is only because of God's grace that my strength grows and I can move forward. I often pray and talk to God. However, I have been prayin

Thank You God

I just want to tell you that God is Good. He will use others to be a blessing in your life. I already told God Thank you, but I wanted to Thank God in Public. As I prepare myself for online service at Emmanuel Baptist Church, I began to reflect on some of the things that some people say out of that thing they call a mouth.  Then I realize people say things because they do not know any better. They do not know God and what he is capable of doing. But if it was not for his Grace (God blessing us when we do not deserve it) and Mercy (God not punishing us when our sins deserve it) where would you be today? Where would I be today?  Someone did not wake up this morning, but you were blessed to see another day. You did not wake your self up #GodDidThat. You are blessed to have your five senses for another day, #GodDidThat. Someone lost their job last week and may not be able to provide for their family, but that pink slip bypassed your desk #GodDidThat. My faith has been shook several times,
