New Book is now available (God Will Never Forget About You)

God is so good.

I am so excited to share with you all my new book God Will Never Forget About You. This is my first book and I have been working on it for a long time. This book is a devotional book and I pray that it will inspire you to get closer to the Lord. Sometimes, when we face so much in life, we feel like God doesn’t care about us. We feel as if God has neglected us or that he doesn’t hear us. This can be the hardest thing to deal with, but please know that God is near. I pray that this devotional would reconnect you with God and let you know that he loves you.

CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO PURCHASE THE BOOK

Paperback & Ebook available https://www.amazon.com/God-Will-Never-Forget-About/dp/1705610935/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=God+Will+Never+Forget+About+You&qid=1576038823&sr=8-1

I want this book to touch the heart of the people of God and I want this book to touch those who feel like they want to know Christ, but they are still uncertain. I want you to know that God loves you and he wouldn’t leave you. I want you to know that God has so much to tell you and I pray that the words God wanted me to share with you would touch your soul.

I have been working on this devotional for about 7 years. I didn’t want to just write anything that wasn’t from the heart of God. I had to take time to reflect and spend time with God. I poured my heart out to God in a season in my life where I felt lonely sometimes and full of questions. I told God that I wanted to know my purpose. I went through many trials and tests. Each test taught me about the love of God and his character. I would go into my prayer closet and take time to sit with God. God would give me words to tell you all. I also put together my favorite scriptures to go along with each chapter. There is a note section in my devotional book. I want you to write your own thoughts down and write what you think God is telling you.

This devotional has 31 days and I pray you would also tell a friend about this devotional book. There are so many people who feel alone or even feel like God doesn’t care about them. I pray that this would touch your heart and you would also bless someone with this book.

When I wrote this devotional, this scripture came to me. This scripture is the main scripture for this devotional.

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.”
DEUTERONOMY 31:6 AMP

I pray that as you read this devotional, you would know that God loves you.

Take time to check out this book on Amazon. You can read the free sample that is on Amazon.

God, Will Never Forget About You comes in paperback and also e-book. Purchase on Amazon.

God bless you and please know that every season has a purpose for it. I deeply pray that you would really take in the words of God from this book and also read the prayers in this chapter.

Thank you and share this blog post.

The Big Fat Liar

I remember sitting down by my computer a few months ago.

I remember asking the Lord for strength.

Someone might say by looking at my face that what I was facing was easy. I didn’t need strength from the Lord. If I had to tell anyone anything I would…tell them right back, that if they knew the path I had to walk on….

They wouldn’t want to walk it.

God makes everything look easy.

His grace gives even the hardest situations beauty.

My story is filled with so many tears and also loads of smiles. I wish I could wrap my story up in one paragraph, but I decided that I would share it piece by piece. I want to tell you about the devil. He is a liar. He has tried to lie to me for 30 years of my life, but I finally called him bluff a few years ago. The day I gave me life to Christ changed me and the day I put my foot down to rededicate myself to Christ made me.

I realized he was a wolf hidden in sheep’s clothing.

I honestly don’t want to give the enemy power, but I honestly have to encourage every single woman of God who wants to write. Some of you have amazing work and you keep it hidden. Some of you have amazing lyrics or even journal pieces and you keep it hidden. I have to expose him and tell women of God the truth.

I want you to pull out your work. Pull out your story and if you haven’t written it down yet, please do.

The enemy wants to walk around like a big bad wolf. I always say a wolf with no teeth. A wolf with slick words and a slick tongue. I used to think I knew it all, but as I have gotten older, I realized that the son was missing in my life. I needed a Savior. I want to encourage you to get up in this season. To look at your life and realize that the enemy could be lying to you as well.

Lying to you about your life.

Lying to you about your dreams.

Lying to you about your identity.

Lying to you about your writing gift.

He could be saying you won’t ever make it.

God doesn’t love you.

You need to give up!

I want you to fill your life back up with the word of God.

I want you to go back to your first love and remember the word of God.

I want you to speak the word of God and write the word of God.

For it holds power.

Power to break down every lie of the enemy.

I had to get my power back.

I had to get my hope back.

I had to let go of what people thought of me.

I even had to let go of every odd and wrong thought …I had about myself.

I had to tell that devil to get out of my life.

I see now like never before that my gift intimated him.

I will never make it to some perfect point because I am always learning, but I do know I can take on anything with God.

I will make it and my Savior said so….

JESUS CHRIST.

My writing isn’t for a stage. My writing will take me where God wants it to take me. I promised him I wouldn’t let my pride get in the way. I would always learn from Christ and learn from the people God wants me to learn from.

I pray that you would take hold of your heart again and live again.

Write again and breathe again.

I pray that you would be bold enough to break down what is the truth and what is a lie.

Here is a prayer to help you break free from the lies of the enemy.

Lord…

I ask you to open my heart up again. Open me up to you truth and your wisdom. No one has seen the walk I had to go down. It wrapped me in tears and yet I was sitting in the palm of your hands. I was wrapped in love, but the arrows from the world tried to crush my soul. I see now that you love me like never before. I will never make it to a perfect point because I am going through a process, but I can learn from you. I can learn from your word. I can go where you want me to go. I ask you to give me wisdom that no one has ever seen and I ask that you would allow me to follow your voice. The voice of a stranger I will not follow. You tell me not to follow it in John 10:5. I ask that you would give me courage to take hold of what you promised me. I ask that you would help me have the full armor of God on daily. I ask that you would help me put it on and lead me down the road that you have called me to walk down. No one can walk this road with me, but you. Let me fill my heart and mind with your word. Clear out every lie of the enemy and let me know when he is lying. Let me not listen, but resist. Let me come against him only with the word of God. When I speak your word he must flee. Let me be full of courage and let me fulfill the calling you have for my life. Let me take one day at a time. In the mighty powerful name of Jesus Christ. AMEN!

Remember that the truth of GOD is real and not fake. The truth of God is more powerful and nothing can prosper against it.

Hebrews 4:12 NIV

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

The Moment I Almost Gave Up..

Never Give Up…

There was a season in my life where I just stopped writing for a while. I just felt tired and weary. I knew God was calling me to write, but I just was tired. I didn’t know really what to do next. I had to really take time out to rest. I am not talking about regular rest.

I am talking about soaking with God and sitting with God without constantly asking him questions. I wanted God to answer me every second and I realized during this season of rest that God wanted me to just trust him. There is nothing wrong with asking God questions, but sometimes we need to just surrender. We don’t have to worry about every single thing. We don’t have to know every detail and sometimes we want every detail to the point.

This can be fustrating, but God wants you to just sit with him and learn from him. Think about this….

If we keep asking God constant questions we can miss out on what he is trying to tell us. Imagine this….

What if you try to talking to a friend and they just keep asking questions. They don’t listen and just ask questions. After an hour or so you would most likely get fustrated or feel like they don’t care.

God is your best friend, so why would you ask him so many questions and not listen? God loves you and he wants you to listen more. He wants you to stop leaning on your own strength and lean into him.

Friends listen. True friends listen well. I learned during this season to work on listening to God more. He wants you to listen to him more.

How can you find direction or even guidance when you keep trying to talk over God? When you write for the Lord you must write and listen. He will bring downloads of wisdom when you listen and have a heart to recieve. I remember being so fustrated with the Lord. I used to wonder why he wasn’t giving me more information on my writing gift and not given me new ideas. This season was a very dry season. I would look at my work on my computer and not care. It was like I felt defeated. Have you felt like this or are you feeling like this???

I knew I had to do something. I had to stop trying to rush my writing ideas and my creativity. It felt like it was stuck. It was just stuck. I didn’t know if I was stuck or was God stuck?

I knew God wasn’t stuck, but I was just so confused. I took time to regroup and just have fun. Sometimes, we can try to do so much in our own strength and we miss the point. God wants to pour his strength within us, but if we do stuff without him we will face burn out. We will get to the end of ourselves. God wants us to get to him. Get to him for strength. Get to him for power. Get to God for wisdom and glory.

Get to your real feelings. If you feel weary tell God and be real about. He isn’t afraid of you or how you feel. Open up and fast if you need to fast.

Be real.

Be open.

Be true.

If you feel weary and feel stuck. Like I said before take a step back. Go find something that sparks your interest and can bring a new level of refreshment in your writing. Don’t try to rush or try to force your writing to flow. Take a step back. This will help you so much.

God bless you!

Who Are You Writing For?

Have you asked yourself in this season …

Who am I writing for? Who am I writing for?

You need to think about this statement and reflect on it. Sometimes, we can forget the purpose of writing or what the mission is. Sometimes, we want people to like what we write. We want friends or even family members to like what we write, but do you like what you write?

Do you know why you are writing?

I know you might think you don’t have to ask yourself these questions, but honestly you do. When you write you must constantly ask yourself each of the questions below and you need to be honest with yourself. God wants each of his children to think big, but we also must start at the beginning. Sometimes, we can be so quick to want to push an idea or plan out and we forget the purpose behind it all.

You may know the ultimate purpose is to honor God and to keep God first, but do you really believe that. Do you believe that God has given you everything you need to go where you need to go with this gift?

I honestly remember a few years ago asking myself these questions. I didn’t really even know if this was a calling or a hobby? I used to wonder what God would do with the gift he has given me. I didn’t know and honestly I am still a work in progress. I know now that God is working in me and through me. It took me years to believe it. It may not take you a long time, but I think it took me a long time because I wanted to know every single detail about my destiny. I was in the process of learning to trust God in a new way and I felt I needed to be in control.

I just want you to know that God can take your questions. He can take your doubts and he can show you the real purpose behind your gift. Don’t try to go through this journey trying to make God do what you want him to do with this gift. Fall into his purpose.

Each key point below will help you reflect:

You can ask the Lord in your quiet time each of these questions. I believe you want to think about this and make sure you spend more time with God. In order to know what to do with your gift you will have to spend time with the one who gave you this gift. God isn’t afraid of your questions. ASK AWAY…

  1. God why did you give me this gift?
  2. God help me look beyond what I can get and look at you for purpose.
  3. Lord open my heart up to your will for my life.
  4. Take hold of my writing father God and help me not rush the process.
  5. Thank you Lord for this beautiful gift.
  6. Let me look beyond my imperfections father God and look at your power.
  7. What direction should I go into with my writing?
  8. Let me not compare myself father God. Teach me to look at my unique gift with joy.
  9. You see me Lord and I know that you will continue to work with me.
  10. God remove any fear or worry from my spirit.

In Jesus Christ Name Amen!!!!!!

I pray that each question will help you and guide you. Some of the key points aren’t questions, but it can get you to think about some of the questions you can ask God.

I believe good communication with the Lord is the key to your writing gift.

You must daily work on your relationship with God and know he wants to answer you. He wants to be apart of all that you do. Don’t fear the process and don’t fear God in a bad way. Fear God with truth and joy.

Just know that when you write for the Lord you will have to go through a deep journey. Embrace it and keep working on asking God questions. Keep allowing God to challenge you and teach you.

Learning is the key and growth is the key.

Finding joy with your writing with the Lord is the most beautiful thing. Don’t let it go. Keep searching and keep going deeper with the Lord.

If you feel like you are drifting and falling into a place of wanting the approve of people over God.

Just take a step back.

Take a step back and take hold of God.

People and circumstances can change, but God won’t change.

You have to take hold of this like never before.

Glory of God- Fall Upon My Writing

There is so much God wants to teach his wonderful women of God. I think sometimes we try to rush the writing process. We overthink and we try to figure it all out. The moment I just let go of how I think I needed to do things that’s when I started to notice God really speaking to me. Honestly, I think God was always speaking to me, but I may have gotten a bit impatient. I want you to know that we all have different seasons that can cause us to doubt the living God. This doesn’t make you a bad person. This makes you human dear one. This makes you alive. This makes you a women of God with passion and someone who wants to follow God. I don’t want you to think that God can’t use you. He is using you and he will continue. God is always working. He never sleeps women of God.

Psalm 121:4 NLT- Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps.

He is always working things out for us and honestly there is so much beauty in this. I remember sitting up talking to God in my bed about all of my writing ideas. I used to tell God why don’t you just hurry and do this thing!

Now I sit back and realize why God didn’t launch me when he did.

There is a method in his work and a powerful reasoning behind why God does what he does. Now I can’t explain the thoughts of God, but I can go to his word. I started to go to his word during my season of working on my writing. I am still working on my writing, but I have realized that God wants to be in it all. He wants to help you with your your writing. He doesn’t want you to write by yourself. He wants to show you a new side of himself. It’s up to you to want to give it to him.

Sometimes, we think we can do stuff without God. We may not mean to do it on purpose, but we still think we know better than the living God.

How crazy is that?

Hahahahah

I want you to know we all have doubts. We all have moments of trying to do stuff alone or trying to figure stuff out without God. We all think we can rush past the timing of the Lord. I want you to take a step back and sit with the Lord. Take a step back in this season and really see what God is calling you to do with your work.

You may feel like you have so many ideas, but what is that one writing idea that you can’t let go of?

What is that one writing idea that you know without no doubt that God gave you?

What are you going to do with it?

What are you and God going to do with it?

Don’t you dare let your writing gift die.

Did you know God wants to resurrect that idea? Did you know that he gave you this amazing gift? You don’t have to be overwhelmed. There is also many tools and articles online to help you.

Dare to continue to step up and grab tight to the hand of God.

I look back on my own personal writing journey and I remember sitting with my ideas in front of my computer. I remember whispering to God about my life and my purpose. I asked God all of these things…below*

Why in the world did you give me this task…? How am I supposed to do this? Where do I even start? Is this really from you because it seems so much?

I poured out my heart to the Lord and tears fell.

Also, a big smile appeared on my face because I knew what God told me.
Even if it meant I would have to walk hand in hand with him up the mountain of faith with it.

I told God you have to do something crazy and radical with this idea! I knew God called me to help many people. It was simple, but yet I knew it.

I pray that you would take hold of what God told you and grab your work. I pray you would pray over your work. I pray that you would cry and worship if you have to. I pray that you would talk to God in a powerful way. I pray that your worship would hit the ears of God and he would sing sweet songs to you! I pray that you would go deeper into your writing and you wouldn’t let negative situations stop you.

Dare to let his glory fall upon you.

Dare to take hold of your writing and to never look back.

Dare to smile again and dare to have great faith.

God has it all planned out.

Just follow him.

Here is a prayer I wrote below to help you.

My God how beautiful you are. I ask that you would give me strength to keep going. I pray that the words I write would help this world. I pray that the words I write would help this nation. Heal me from the inside out, so I can help and heal your people. Let my eyes walk with holy fire and let me see from your perspective. Let your love flow through my heart and let me communicate with you every single day. Let me have a new level of compassion for the broken and the wounded. Let me never ever think that I am better than anyone else. Let my soul be strengthened. I may have to walk this journey without someone every second by my side, but I know you are by my side. I pray that the words I write would come only from you. Let every hindrance come to a stop now in the name of Jesus Christ. Let your words flow within me like pure gold. Let your words flow through me like fire! God let endurance come upon me now. Let wisdom come upon me now. Let me not follow anyone else, but you. Let me draw closer to you, as I work on my writing. Let me not give up even when discouragement tries to hit my life. Let me daily lift up the shield of faith. Cover my mind with the blood of Jesus Christ and cover every ounce of me with the blood of Jesus Christ. Let me write with power. Let me write now with grace! Let me write now with joy! Let me write with healing in my words! Let me get on my knees and daily surrender all. I receive all you have for me, so I can help everyone around me. Lord let my words go where you want them to go. Let it not be stopped! Let me write only with the word of God. Let the word of God go into my writing and let people who read my work see you all in it! Let testimony after testimony come from my writing! Let nations be healed! Let families be healed! Let this world be healed by what I write! Let even enemies come and fall to the name of Jesus! Let your will be done Lord! In Jesus Christ name amen!!!!!!!

God bless you wonderful women of God!!!!!

Peaceful Words

I love taking naps on Sunday. I feel refreshed.

Now the funny thing is that I don’t look very free or refreshed trying to go take a nap. Sometimes, I fight it..

I fight trying to rest.

Why?

Because hontestly I want to lay down when I want to lay down.

Controlling a bit?

Ahhahahaah

The funny thing about being tired is your body will take over.

Your mind and body go together.

So, if this is the case.

Don’t we think that the spiritual part of us is doing something as well?

Sometimes, my head is hanging down and my body is tired.

Like I said before I fight it.

I now let go and allow myself to rest.

I allow myself to rest and not walk in false guilt.

My body needs to regroup.

You need to regroup.

I finally realized God wants me to rest. I realized I don’t have to feel guilty about resting.

In order to be productive in every single way.

I must rest.

You must rest.

Will you rest or will you continue to rush through?

To walk into your destiny successfully you will have to take care of yourself.

Today find ways to rest. Here are a few things you can do.

1. After Church take a church nap.

2. Write in your journal about recent life events.

3. Release any worry.

4. Sit with God and tell the Lord what is on your mind.

5. Rejoice. When you rejoice fear and worry has to leave.

Do a few things each day to rest. When you rest …you are trusting God.

God bless you.

This scripture below always reminds me about resting in God. I pray it will encourage you.

The whole earth is at rest and quiet; they break forth into singing.
Isaiah 14:7 ESV

Born For This

A unique calling is within you.

It’s constantly calling you to find it.

It’s constantly calling you to search for it.

You may not even know it’s there…

You may feel like you don’t even know what God has put in you. You may not even realize it’s there. I want you to step back and take hold of the hand of God in this season. Sometimes, when you write you may feel like there is a blockage in your way. You may feel you won’t ever be able to move forward. I want you to know that the Lord has given you everything you need to move forward and to walk in the calling he has given you. You may have so many obstacles, but please know that nothing can stand up to the living God.

To look at your life in a different view you must let go of self. I honestly believe that selfishness can block your perspective. I honestly believe if you don’t pull away from how you used to do things you won’t be able to see circumstances in your life with the proper perspective. The calling you have with your writing is crucial. Don’t let the dreams you have for your writing die. Take time each day to look at the gifts you have and work on ways to grow them. You can’t just write to write. You must know that this writing gift is connected to so many adventures. In order to create a good story or in order to share pieces of your perspective. You must be willing to take change. You must be willing to walk in faith daily.

You have to know that you are born for this adventure. You have to know that God has created you with a purpose in mind. You have to be willing to learn who you are. You have to be willing to motivate and speak the word of God over yourself. You must know you were born for any challenge that may pop up when you go towards your gift. You must be willing to allow trials to help you. You may wonder am I really born for this? Can I take on every challenge and can I use what God has given me to help other people?

I want you to know that you are born for this. Here are a few points to help you navigate the season you are in.

  1. You are born to write. You may not see it right now, but the passion you have for your writing is motivating you. You may see people in pain or even want to share your testimony with other people. You may feel like you can’t let your writing gift go. This could be a sign God wants you to write down how you feel or what you feel like God is telling you.
  2. You have a passion for justice and the kingdom of God. You know what God is speaking to you about and you want to make sure you do what you must do to get your message across.
  3. You may have noticed stories or even stuff you have written when you were younger.
  4. You may feel a stirring of your gift and can’t let it go.
  5. You may constantly get revelation from God about your writing.
  6. You constantly want to learn from other people about writing and information.
  7. You may feel a constant war over your writing gift.
  8. You want to do something unique with this gift.
  9. You constantly pray or talk to God about your writing gift.
  10. There is power and joy when you write .
  11. You want to share your writing gift with other people.

You may even notice other things God has told you about your writing. This is just a short list that may show you that God has called you to writing. Just small points to get your attention about the writing gift you have. I know there are so many more, but this is just some points that have helped me.

Pressure Pressure Pressure…………

Have you ever experienced so much pressure that you thought you was going to literally scream until you couldn’t scream anymore.

I am a really sweet person. It takes alot to get me to get upset or even agitated. I have been asking God to teach me to remain calm and at peace no matter the circumstance. I strongly believe many women of God are asking the same thing.

Life can really bring curve balls. Life can really bring loads of fustrations. You can get upset in this life especially when you are trying to do the right thing.

As, I am getting older I am realizing that being a Christian is getting more difficult.

Now I am not saying we aren’t prospering in God. I know Jesus has taken every burden. I see changes in my life and even the lives of those around me.

You probably can say you see changes as well.

I am just saying that the moment you think this life is so easy..stuff happens. I have been on a interesting journey for almost 7 years. Learning about me. Learning about what God has called me to. Learning how to not compare. Learning the word of God. Learning to treat everyone with love and kindess.

This season of character growth and transformation….HURTS.

I want you to not feel like you have to have every answer. I want you to call out to God in this season. To humble yourself before the living God. I want you to know who you are and whose you are in Christ. When life is easy…you may not really see the real you.

When life is hard and there is pressure.

The real you will come out.

Who are you when pressure hits?

Do you easily manipulate or get so fustrated that no one wants to be around you? Do you get so consumed in yourself that you forget that this whole life is about the living God?

I am not getting on you. I want you to see pressure as a powerful thing.

I want you to let pressure bring you into a new level.

I want you to let pressure prepare you and grow you.

I pray pressure will allow you to reflect on good thoughts and godly thoughts.

I want pressure to bring you to a place of clarity and reassurance.

Stop fighting pressure.

Stop fighting people.

Stop fighting yourself.

Pressure creates ideas as well.

Pressure can take every promise of God and manifest it.

When you handle pressure well it will ELEVATE YOU…

Take time to read below a few tips to help you when pressure comes.

When pressure hits…

1. Rejoice at all times.

2. Worship and go deeply into the word of God.

3. When you feel so overwhelmed cry out to God.

4. Forgive quickly and forgive yourself.

5. Stay at peace and refix your thoughts.

6. Read the word of God. Focus on scripture and passages in the Bible to guide you.

7. Take time to fast and pray.

8. Ask God who you can trust. Ask God for godly divine friendships. Take time to get a godly friend or godly family member to pray for you. There ia power in agreement.

9. Look around for God moments.

10. Be thankful no matter what.

This scripture is powerful. Read below.

—-And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;
ROMANS 5:3 AMP

Are You Hungry For The Lord??????

I was talking to God about what to write about. I had to be still and be honest. Sometimes, his words don’t come quickly to me. I have to get into a place of deep peace into my mind. For me personally, I have to ask God to open my heart and I have to release any worry. I have to really humble myself before the living God.

I never just want to write to write.

I want to write when God tells me to write.

This is what I heard as I waited for a word from God. I pray it will impact you today with a hunger to not settle and to want more of God. There is so much more God wants to show you.

Are you hungry?

My daughters have gone through many heavy trials. Not trials that are simple and quick, but many trials that are grueling. Many trials exposed people and intention. Many trials around each of my daughters exposed character issues and even wounds they didn’t know they had. Many wounds aren’t healed even after many years have gone by. I want my hunger to rise in you again and I want my truth to heal every part of you.

As, you go through this season the Lord wants you to know that he loves you, but he had to allow the pressing. He had to allow the tests and trials to show you what you were really made of. I know many women of God right now want peace and want a closer relationship with God, but may feel like there is so much in the way. There is so much blocking them. I want you to know that God has another level just for you, but don’t let fear stop you.

Even in my own life I have faced disappointment. I have witnessed growth, but sometimes I have seen so much spiriual warfare it can be so discouraging. A few months ago I knew I had to get real with God. I felt like I was striving sometimes knowing that God wanted me to release my worries. I am a planner. I like to know every detail before the main details…

Ahahhahahahha

I realized that I can’t figure it all out. I don’t have to know it all. I can be healthy and whole in every way. I want you to know God wants you to have a new fresh hunger for his word. A new fresh hunger for truth. Sometimes, we can do the same thing over and over again. We can forget the first time we came to God. We can forget the feelings we had and how we just wanted to do anything to please Christ.

Have you forgotten?

What happened to your hunger for the things of God?

Are you making excuses?

Do you want God or do you want what you want?

In this season take time to really examine yourself. I am not saying you have to be perfect, but I do know a breaking has to occur.

So, many women want to run from the breaking and the sacrafice. So, many women of God want to have both. God and the world. It might not be on purpose, but sometimes we have to figure out what we really want.

We have to daily reflect and keep God first no matter what.

We want God, but do we really want what he wants for us?

I remember a few years ago I was going through a deep test. I loved God, but I felt like I was going through growing pains. I felt like God was trying to show me during that time that everything won’t be perfect even when I do the best I can do.

God wanted me to know who I was in Christ without a status and without certain things I thought I needed.

I had to be honest with God at that time. I knew some of my emotions and thoughts weren’t biblical. I knew I was human, but I think God was trying to show me that I wasn’t in control. God wanted me to learn to trust him. Trust him with my life and even my choices.

I didn’t want to just have a regular relationship with God, but a relationship that was honest. A relationship with God that was pure.

I want you to know it’s okay to have seasons of deep pain, but don’t stay there. You might have had so many that you feel so confused. I want you to take a step back and get back into the word of God. Get back into that mindset…of wanting God above all else.

Here are a few scriptures to meditate on as you call out to God to get closer to him.

God, you are my God. I will look for you early in the morning. My soul is thirsty for you. All of me wants you. It is like living in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.
Psalms 63:1 EASY

I want to see you in your house, I want to see your power and your glory .
Psalms 63:2 EASY

The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, believers) say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take and drink the water of life without cost.
REVELATION 22:17 AMP

Don’t let go of wanting more of God.

Don’t let what people say stop you from giving God praise.

Don’t listen to lies and negative thoughts.

Renew your mind in the word of God.

God wants your whole heart.

Don’t compromise your relationship with God.

Even if it costs you opportunities or even friends. Don’t compromise!

God will reward you.
