It’s A New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


It seems like only yesterday that we were telling one another Happy New Year and setting our goals for 2016. Yet, we’ve already reached the halfway mark for January, and February is merely 8 days away! I cannot believe how quickly the time is passing and how much has already happened. I turned 25! (dear Lort, lol); I made the very grown up decision to leave a job that I was unhappy with and got two amazing job offers–I only applied at these two places; and then made the even more adult-like decision to take the job that would offer more experience, flexibility and bank –almost double what I was making before!

As all of these wonderful things come into fruition, I know that there will only be more to come, and God is simply preparing me for the type of year and life he has planned for me. I’m ready for my hobby to become my career; I’m ready to be in the healthiest, most fit shape of my life; & mama ain’t no beggar, but I’m definitely down for a male companion/boyfriend/hubby/all of the above! Haha! But seriously, guys??

But in preparation for all new things, the old habits have to go and changes must be implemented. Change isn’t change until you change. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. You know that, I know that, but it none of it matters if we don’t act upon it.

Philippians 4: 6&7 (NKJV)

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Let your heart and mind be guarded. Put your trust in God and allow him to guide your footsteps. Every day, the intent must be there:

Work Harder

Grow Stronger

Eat Better

Pray Longer

Live YOUR life to the best of YOUR ability and do everything with and in love!

I hope you guys are enjoying the new year and making every effort to make every day the best day of your life. Be sure to stay in touch this year and we’ll keep each other motivated and encouraged on this journey!

In other news, I celebrated my 25th in Atlanta! If you wanna see what we got up to, be sure to watch the video below and subscribe to my YouTube channel for future vids 🙂

Deliver Me.

These do not belong to me. They are reaching in places once frequently known, frequently visited. These can’t be mine: these hands, this mind, this essence.

Less frequent now. Spurs of the moment. Brought on by something of the known & unknown. The subconscious. Reflections of my past.

Everything originates from somewhere, is derived from something. Every action can be traced back to a thought. Every. Action.

I acted. I acted unseemly.. Misguided & misused- I acted. I became something that my former wouldn’t have recognized, something she couldn’t have imagined. I became the unknown.

But in present years I have become aware.. Aware of what you do, of who you are. I don’t like it, I don’t like you.

The mind must be monitored. Everything has a way in and it’s your job to ensure that it doesn’t corrupt you, that it doesn’t destroy you.

They are trying to ensure that you don’t survive, that you abide by their rules and their rules only. But, you mustn’t let them change you.. Not more so than they already have.

You were pure once.. Your mind unaltered, your body unscathed, your heart unbroken. You were You, once.

Be You again.

Be You in Him.

Deliver me.

(Listening to: “Deliver Me”- David Crowder Band)
