today’s tears taste like fresh water
as they travel the eye gates
they almost escape
reroute them to my mouth
I Love You
is all they ever want to say
drowning words that replay in my head
as my tears give them a ride
outside of my heart
because my mouth has no place to say
I Love You
yesterday, tomorrow and today
The words at times
Seem trapped behind
Illusions of the mind
After a ride
On the soul train
Freedom and restraint
Stillness in reasoning
Leaves me gleaming
At the peace achieved
In just being
I love the Word of God so much. It’s true and never fails. Today, I was picking up Noah at the airport and was going through security when a TSA agent appeared out of nowhere and opened the ropes then said “I need 4 people this way. Only 4.” I was number four! I’ve been seeing this number everywhere lately and it’s reassurance of God’s protection as I adjust to changes happening in my life. Ok, back to my story. I don’t know how many people we went ahead of but I do know that God goes first and He knew that I needed the extra time for the challenge I was about to face. I get to the gate the ticket agent directed me to and I’m told that his plane is landing on a different concourse. As I’m walking from concourse A to concourse B frustration starts to set in but that quiet still voice inside of me reminds me of this scripture I’m posting. I realized at that moment that while I enjoyed my favor in the security line it was attached to a purpose. I was going to have to pay it back with patience and use the fruit of the spirit planted in my heart. This journey included an additional dead end but I made it to the gate where Noah was shortly after he arrived. Having Joy in your heart is not about living a life without obstacles. It’s about being able to face those obstacles with grace and love. I’m grateful for safe travels and the smile that was on my son’s face as he told me about the wonderful time he had in Kansas City with his family. God is Good, All the Time!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you
Peace & Blessings, Soul Family… I just experienced something I want to share with you guys. Have you ever wanted to purchase something and had an internal battle with yourself about whether or not you should do it? Of course, you have, we all do. Long story short, I bought what I wanted but the battle didn’t end there. I was still having thoughts about upcoming expenses and had to stop and breathe before sending myself into a minor anxiety attack, lol. This is where the affirmations we listen to in order to transform our belief systems really begin to manifest. In order to get to a place where you hold a belief constantly, in continuous prayer so to speak, you have to believe right here right now. I literally started telling myself “I am wealthy. I always have what I need when I need it. I have an abundance of money in my bank account. I am blessed and highly favored.” I pulled out everything in the mental toolbox until it led me to my own original thought and affirmation. “Enjoy favor.” Baby, when I tell you my spirit immediately shifted, I shouted on the inside like I was running across the room! Being spiritual isn’t about being super deep. It’s about coming to yourself in those moments when you feel like you’re drowning. Walk on water (your emotions) and Believe! Sinking starts in the mind so remember you are Divine and you control your circumstances in a way that transcends time! I will have all that I need when I need it because I said so! Period! I am going to sleep well tonight knowing that whatever storm I could have forecasted for myself with my own thoughts has been stilled and the God in me is working with the God in you and everyone and everything else on this planet to supply all my needs and yours if you would just Believe! It takes practice and discipline and is the only thing that truly brings you into alignment with your Blessings.
I’ve had to be stronger than any girl should be
Who told you that?
You were born a girl because you know how to handle things
That would break the backs of men
Who told you that you can’t win?
Who told you your emotions are weakness and not strength?
Only the brave go within
Well, you carry men before they’re even born
Who told you you’re a woman scorned?
Woman, you are Life
Woman, you are Light
Woman, you are Fight
Woman, you are right where you’re supposed to be
Drop down to your knees
Let yourself be free
You find strength when you come to Me
Whenever you feel weak
Your only job is to remember me
The One who gave you your True Identity
Hearts are changing
Minds are rearranging
If you're feeling and pain and anguish
You better examine what you're claiming
You are what you love, not who loves you
You are what you hate, not who hates you
You become the one you choose
It’s just grace separating the real from the fake.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Don’t tear it all apart to see what’s real
Give it all you got to see what you can build
