Morning Devotion

 

No matter what’s going.. are what will face  know this God is in control.. my personal belief is yes we are going to see hard times.. because I can not get past “make America great again”.. so I pray that God peace surrounds us.. that we ever watchful for not just ourselves but our neighbors.. remember if it can happen to one minority it can happen to all of us ..

Morning Devotion

imageI waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry, He lifted me out of the slimy pit of mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place  to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the  Lord and put their trust in Him (Psalm 40:1-3).

Let us carry the word of God in our hearts.. reaching out to people where ever we  go to spread the gospel.. I thought about the look I had on my face at Walmart.. how it was not inviting or welcoming to anyone  even though it was feel with psychical pain.. it mad me think who would wanna follow a Jesus who look like that.. always remember we might be the last Jesus someone sees..

Please Accept

imageBefore I start my morning devotion.. I want to apologize for not checking my email and staying in touch.. each blog that I follow is important to me.. and I’m apologiz for my shortcomings.. I went off my schedule and believe me that’s very important to a blogger.. but it’s important to reach out to others.. I could make excuses and say I hit rock bottom with my depression.. and I stop realizing it’s encouraging each other that gets us through..

Morning Devotion

img_1660We pray and ask God to keep and protect the ones we love.. we ask Him for blessing after blessing.. but do we Worship Him..

Worship is celebrating Him as Creator and thanking Him for all He created.. as you get your prayer on .. don’t forget to worship the Creator and Sustainer of your life..

When I Need to Speak Life

God, I pray that You would cause only good and excellent things to come from my lips. Fill my heart with Your love, peace, patience and kindness so that it overflows from my mouth. Help me to speak of positive things and not negative-words that bring life and not death. I know the words I speak can bring blessing into my life or they can keep blessing from me. Help me to never shut off the flow of all You have for me by speaking words that are not glorifying to You..

Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening of my lips will come right things (Proverbs 8:6). – Stormie Omartin- Prayers For Emotional Wholeness

Survival Kit

imageI thank God that I can see me coming through.. Yall just don’t know it’s been along hard road.. I stayed in the valley longer than I should have.. but God didn’t give up on me, He just let me wonder around lost until I decided to return home.. that’s the great thing about God.. He said he would never leave us or forsake us and He meant it (Joshua 1:5)(Matthew 28:20)..

I felt like I would never see me again.. but the devil is a lie.. because when I hear things that come out of my mouth.. I know I’m here and I’m back in full force..

I’m learning everything happens for a reason.. I know that I have a chemical imbalance and I feel that has a lot to do with my depression which is unfortunately something that’s apart of my life..  so that I can help others.. but it was never meant for me to live in it.. does that mean I won’t have days where I will want to lock the world, family and friends out, no of course I will.. will there be days that I cried, yes.. but I will no longer ask why me God.. but instead why not me.. it’s okay to have those days but it’s how we handle them that counts..

Have a Depression Survival Kit ready

  1. Your Bible
  2. Pray your favorite scriptures
  3. Have a pick me up friend.. someone who makes you laugh..
  4. Get up wash your hair, shower, and brush your teeth..
  5. Walk to the front door open it and breathe in and out..
  6. Listen to upbeat music.. for me I love gospel rap..
  7. Eat at least one well balanced meal..
  8. Do something nice for someone else.. to take your mind off of you..
  9. Curl up in your favorite throw.. and catch up on reading blog post..
  10. Rest, regroup and know it’s okay to feel the way you do.. Tomorrow is gonna be a great day..

Don’t you dare stay tomorrow
Yeah, don’t you dare stay tomorrow

Who’s gonna love me right now?
