Hey everyone! It’s been a few days since I’ve blogged, been a busy Resurrection (Easter) Weekend for me! A good one, at that! Got so much accomplished in such a short amount of time, all thanks to God! He’s given me some crystal clear goals to achieve, visions, and is blessing me abundantly! Man! I cannot even thank Him enough for all that He’s done and is doing currently in my life! I see all of my dreams and goals unfolding right before my very eyes! All I had to do, was remain patient and wait on His perfect timing 🙂 And boy, I tell you, He is working things out so much. In a matter of a few days, not even kidding! That supernatural! 😛
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend and spent time with their families and got done what they wanted accomplished 🙂 Praying God is blessing all of you!
My Easter/Resurrection weekend.
I can’t remember what happened Friday or Saturday LMBO but I know it was a pretty good day. Sunday though, I kind of woke up and didn’t feel up to par I was like depressed for some reason and had ZERO energy. I argued with myself about going to church, but never got the energy to even get out of bed. Which is so weird though, because I know I got enough sleep the night before. I never did get to go to church 😦 so I ended up sleeping in until 2pm. Still woke up in a bad mood and no energy! Like I tell you man, the devil was trying to hold me back! He may have held me back from church (my fault for not resisting), but he didn’t hold me back from visiting with my family for the first time in YEARS. I’m glad I went to spend time with my family, too. I wasn’t going to allow my mood to dictate what I was going to do the rest of the day. I wanted to fix things with my family and mend things back together so we can all be united again. So, I blasted some music to cheer myself up and prayed to God and sure enough, my mood did lift up for the most part, but boy did I procrastinate getting out of bed though! LMBO! I finally got out of bed at 3pm and started getting ready and was out the door to head to my aunts no later than 3:30pm.
As we were driving, my anxiety started to kick in. I was legit SO NERVOUS. Because it had been awhile since I seen that part of the family and I just overall, being self-conscious and a worry wart. At one point, I wanted to turn back to head home to my comfort zone but then I realized and thought to myself: “No. You can’t turn back now. You’re only a block away. God is with you and will grant you peace. Push yourself.” Out of my comfort zone, to say the least.. But! I’m so glad I pushed myself because I really did have an amazing time with my family! Things are definitely looking on the bright side and I can’t thank God enough for it 🙂
Guys, all you have to do is your part and then God will do His. Don’t ever worry about what you can’t do. Do what you CAN do and God will handle the rest, trust me! He is MORE than capable of working miracles in the hearts and thoughts of others. Trust and believe. Step out in Faith.
Can’t wait to see what God has in store for me and my family 🙂 I have a huge feeling He will be blessing us abundantly VERY SOON! FAITH y’all FAITH!
Monday thru Tuesday.
Yesterday was a typical day in my life. Spent time with God in the morning (in this case, the afternoon because I was up half of the night for no reason at all lol just could not sleep for the life of me! So typical for me LMBO!), ran some errands, got myself a free sweet tea from Dunkin Donuts and decided that I was going to go vegetarian! I’m not even kidding lol. Processed/Greesy/Junk food does NOT mix well with my stomach! I’m starting to think I’m going to have to switch over to a glutton free diet soon. Anyways lol I was up part of the night getting my grocery list ready for the next days shopping trip (By the way, this shopping trip went from a huge inconvenience to a huge blessing from God) and didn’t fall asleep until about 6am. Woke up at 10am, did my devotions, researched some organic shampoos for my hair type and some spiritual stuff. I started getting ready at 1pm then my best friend came over around 1:30pm and then by 2pm, we were out the door to head to the grocery store. Now, let’s rewind. (This is where I believe my blessing started to kick in).
During my research prior to my best friend coming over, I landed on a blog that talked about asking God where to go IN EVERY PLACE WE GO TO. I thank God I found that blog.. Because had it not have been for me coming across that blog, I would have not gotten my blessing today (Thank you Lord for your wisdom!!!!). So, after I read that blog, I quickly shot up a prayer to God asking Him to either speak directly to me, through my mother, or through Emily on where He wants us to go grocery shopping today. This is NOT something I normally did lol but I think I’m going to start doing this more often! Anyways. Originally we were going to go to the Walmart out in Ellicott City, but at that moment, it was put on my heart (for a moments time) to go to the Giant just up the street from me. So I asked if that was okay and everyone agreed. We went there, went into the store and found out I left my phone at home (which I SWEAR I had in the car with me!) So, we all piled back into to the car and headed back to the house to get my cell phone (which had all the recipes and grocery lists that I needed) and my best friend Emily suggested that we go to Mars instead. So, I asked everyone if they agreed, and sure enough, we all agreed to go to Mars. We did our usual shopping around, checked out, put the groceries in the car and then I went to take the cart back to the part where they store the shopping carts. As I was walking back, a woman kept hollering for me and I looked back to see who it was and it was someone in their car. I went up to them and asked them what they needed and she complimented me on my leopard print purse! She was such a wonderful and nice lady 🙂 I told her where I got it and everything and I PRAY!!!!! that they have that purse in stock when she goes lol because I got that purse like 2 years ago right when Ross had opened up around our area. So, I told her to have a wonderful day and walked away back to my car. Unbeknownst to me, my mother thought it would be a good idea to go ask her if she would like some Avon. They talk for a little bit and then they both walk back to the car. I roll down the window and she said that she was the cook at the restaurant I had applied for a few weeks ago! WOW! Not only that, but she told me who to talk to, when to go in, and to tell them that SHE referred me to the place! I am so happy!
You just don’t know what you could miss out on if you don’t talk to God and let Him lead you in ALL areas of your life! It is such a blessing, y’all do not understand! Me leaving my phone at the house and ending up at Mars all happened for a reason and I am definitely going to go for this job offer 😀 Which will be tomorrow, by the way lol.
It’s a bit overwhelming because it was VERY unexpected, BUT I refuse to let my emotions get the best of me. I’ve gotten 3 job offers in the span of 48 hours and I’m taking all of them. Like I said earlier in this post, I am not wasting no time in achieving my God-given purpose.
A FEW goals I want to accomplish this year:
- Build more credit.
- Save up for a new car (2013 Dodge Dart).
- Do everything that God has planned for me and GIVE to others.
- Go back to college.
- Flourish in this ministry.
- GROW to be a better woman in Christ!
God is just a huge blessing and I cannot thank Him enough! Everything happens for a reason and I cannot praise Him and be grateful enough for all that He has and is doing for me in my life! I am SO far from what I was a little over a month ago and it’s only because God moved in me in such a powerful way, it created a miracle in my life. I love serving God and I love walking in the Holy Spirit. It’s given me such a new perspective and view on life. I’m not afraid of death anymore. I don’t just see a few months ahead of me, I see a whole future planned out in front of me with no cares or worries because I know that God works things out in His will and purpose and MY favor. Both good and bad. Such a stress and anxiety reliever, LMBO!!!!!
That’s not where my day ended though lol. As I said a few paragraphs above, I started a vegetarian diet and bought enough ingredients to make two meals that would last 2-3 days each. Today I fixed Baked Potatoes and Onions. I thought it would be a little bland with such little ingredients put into it (Literally, it was only potatoes, onions, butter, parsley and salt & pepper), but let me tell you! It was TRULY amazing! I, and my mother and best friend, loved it!
Here’s a picture of it:
Such an amazing day and weekend! This is just the beginning guys, God is working in and through me! It’s all him, not me! I am just a vessel working for Him 😛 . I am overflowing with joy thanks to God! Regardless of my situations!
I love you all and hope y’all have a blessed and wonderful day/night! 😀
