Minute Motivation

Have you ever been in such a place that you're almost afraid to make a it left or right?

I've missed blogging and giving daily inspiration to you all that listen and read but to be honest my life right now is so up and down. It's like how can I possibly try to help others when I can't even help myself?

Sure, people can look into my social media and see me smiling but behind that smile carries a lot of hurt, pain, and anger. I am one that REFUSES to let hate settle in my heart for even just a little bit, but some of the deceit and daggers that people have thrown my way have worn me out.

Yesterday, a good friend of my sisters that I've only met once but keep in touch via Facebook checked in on me out the blue. See, she had been feeling down in her spirit and something was telling her to pray for someone; it's amazing how things work out because she checked in on me out of the blue; only to find that she was indeed praying for me on my behalf because I couldn't pray for myself.

One thing that I can say and see is that through this test and trial that I'm going through to grow, people around me that I never know or never think are behind me really are. Some of the ones closest to you may not even pick up on it, but those that have that distant relationship see and recognize and let you know that they are there in even the simplest of ways and it's amazing. It's amazing to see the love of God work through people and sometimes the most unlikely people (I'm so thankful for you).

So I say that to say, hold on just a little longer, because that peace that's soon going to overtake you is nothing but the love of God and his working power from the help of those that see you from a distance praying on your behalf simply because they know you can't pray for yourself. If you gave up one second too soon you'll never get to see the benefit of the test and trial you're going through, nor will you ever really understand the amount of people that truly have your back when you think you're all alone. I know where you are, I'm slowing coming out of where you lets get through this together.

Love you with all my heart

A new beginning

Greetings friends!

It's been a while since I've blogged and a lot of life has happened. Some good, some not so good but in the end all things have happened for MY good.

I came across this quote a few days ago and it stuck with me. It's a simple phrase but it has so much meaning in such little words. Letting go is hard, fear of the unknown is even harder but endings aren't the end because through it all we're still alive and living so it's just the end of a chapter and the beginning of a new one..and sometimes a new book all together which is even better.

As the year 2014 rang in I knew it would be a year of great things and a lot of growth and that made me so excited, but what I didn't want or should I say forgot to expect were the tests, and as we all know the more we grow the harder the tests we go through…but in the end as long as we can make it through and choose not to become bitter and harbor hatred I can say we've faired pretty well.

One thing I can say personally is that since I've been able to let go of all the wrong things (people, desires, emotional attachments) that I was holding onto God has finally been able to step in and bless me with all the RIGHT things he's been waiting to bless me with.  So just hold on a little longer…I know it's rough, and the ending doesn't seem like it's in sight, or should I say that new beginning but it's there, right there.

Is it just me or does it seem like when it rains it pours? I don't want to not count the blessings that have come my way but sometimes it's hard to see the beginning from the end.
