Good morning

imageTo the Blogosphere.. I am sick I’m hoping it’s just a bad cold.. I’m ache but with chronic pain I’m ache all the time anyway but I do have a headache.. all I wanna do is make it to the shower, brush my teeth and put on a fresh pair of pjs.. I hate feeling like this hot cold and hot again.. I feel awful..

I hope everyone has a bless day.. remember to be Great.. thank God for all He has and is doing for you..

imageThis morning God I just wanna thank You for being the God of a second chance.. I love how You give us the power to over come the enemy.. You are such a forgiving God.. Who gives us new mercy everyday.. and no matter how many times we change on You.. You never change on us but stay true to Your divine word..

As we go about our day keep our minds from wondering on things of the world that we have no control over.. but let our focus be on You and Your power to answer our prayers.. and give You praise as we wait for answer.. for You Jehovah God will forever be in control.. no matter what it looks like to the natural eye.. let us also remember that this place is not our home.. we are just here for a visit as our heavenly home forever home awaits us..

Have a very blessed day..

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free (Luke 4:18).

I was thinking how Jesus came to set the prisoners free.. and I thought about the things that hold us captive in our mind.. some of us are held captive due to no fault of our own.. but some of us are held captive by the past and living it over and over again in our mind.. we are prisoners of people that have long forgotten about us and things that we have lost.. we are a prisoner of our dreams of regrets..

So today if you are a prisoner of your mind .. just know that through prayer and faith in Jesus.. you can be set free it’s already been done for us.. Just release it to Him..

Transformation Tip

I’m back on the ACV after two months of being off it.. I can already tell a change in my appetite .. I’m walking as much as my back and legs will hold up.. remember to go at your on peace especially when dealing with chronic pain..

I did an experiment with three different types of Organic Apple Cider Vingar.. you here a lot about Bragg but I didn’t think it was that great in cutting my appetite or cleaning out my system.. Simply Nature was okay but I still felt something was missing as far as cleaning out your system and controlling my appetite for a longer time.. The one I like the best is Organic Great Value it did a great job of cleaning out my system.. the cost was cheaper or about the same but as you can see you get more for the money.. and yes I will use the Simply Nature to.. but a word of advice when trying something new only buy one even if it is on sale to see how it works for you.. also I drink mine with just water but you can add honey or lemon..

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness (Galatians 5:22)

I think when we mediate on fruit of the Spirit.. the world becomes easier to live in.. and we are able to face our trials and tribulations with the presence of God all around us..

Unlock Me

imageWhile encouraging others my own life is a living hell.. tormented by the things of my past and present life.. entangled in my mind bars that I can’t break free of.. a life of feeling lost while seeking ┬álove at any cost.. running aimlessly from one person to the next, from job after job, and city after city.. trying to escape the things and people that hold me captive.. running away from everything and yet running to anything or one that could possibly hold the key to free ME.. am I to be tortured for the rest of my life here.. will I ever find the strength, the power to break free.. will I ever be able to save ME.. or will I continue to be entangled, entrapped by the bars wrapped around my mind as I look for anyone or thing that holds the key.. to unlock Me..

Fighting Back

imageI packed in a haste so I could leave before he got back.. I look around at what I was leaving behind the mansion on the hill, the cars, ocean views that people only dream of, money, and the fame of being the wife of one of the worlds top surgeon.. I was walking away from a life most women would die for and I thought I would too..

I from being treated like a delicate flower.. being able to hang out with the girl friends and volunteering at the hospital, seeing family on a regular basis, lunch dates with old college mates and church functions..

Everything changed so fast after the I do’s.. I went from being the love of his life .. to his prisoner in a matter of months.. I went from being adored to tortured.. my every moment was accounted for.. I had a time limit for everything I did..

I don’t know what happened I came home one day like normal after a lunch date with the girls.. and I was met at the door by him, shouting where have you been.. who is he.. I ask who is who baby, you know this is the day the girls and I go to lunch.. what is the matter with you I asked.. he looked at me and grab me by my arm and started shaking me.. screaming I know you’ve been with a man.. by this time I am crying and I ask him are you crazy.. I love you and only you.. I thought that might as settle him down.. but he just stared at me like I was lying to him..

Thats when everything changed.. and the beating began first it was a black eye.. then the choking but that wasn’t the worse part.. I think the name calling was the worse than the bruises because they went away but names lingered in my head forever..
