WORD!

This week In Prayer, Besides praying for my needs, I have been lifting up Mama’s in Prayer & Also Mama’s that are waiting for their “One Day”.

I was that Mama. In my Heart I was already a Mom, but it in the Physical, I was still waiting. In the waiting of any request or miracle we ask from God, we can lose hope, get discouraged or we just give up. Don’t! There is Hope. Hope is found in God’s Word! So Here are a couple of Scriptures I want to share with my fellow Mama’s out there.

Maybe you are The Stay at Home Mom (Like Me) & sometimes you feel like pulling your hair because let’s face it, there are days where it’s hard! Or it was an Ice Cube “Today was a Good Day” kind of Day 😎✌🏻 & you just want to Praise God for it.

Maybe you are the 9-5 office working Mama. You still need to pick up the kids, get home, make dinner & still keep at it until the babies are all tucked in. Seriously… how do you Mamas do it?! Whew!

And this is every single Mama… when the lights are out & you are tucking in your Babies, You Pray Over Them. For God’s Protection Over their Life. After a Long Day of “Momming” you are exhausted, Tired, Hungry & in need of Sleep & Coffee 🙃

There is also that Mama that is waiting for her “One Day”. God is Faithful My Dear Friend. Don’t ever lose Hope. Stay Faithful in Prayer, God hears your request!

I encourage you to Read over these Scriptures! Speak them over your Life, Your Kids, Marriage, your Circumstances. Whatever it may be, but Just Remember… God is for You.

They are Highlighted 😉

Remember… The same miracles that happened in the Bible, Can still happen in Your Life. HE is the Same, Yesterday, Today & Forever!

God’s Strength, Blessings & Love,

Prepare Yourself for What God’s Preparing You For…

As you know I’ve Blogged about my Pregnancy & many know my Story about my Miracle Baby. I give all the Glory to God for His Promise to Us, which is Our Beautiful Baby Cora. But I want to share with you How I prepared myself for Pregnancy in hopes it will Inspire Women who are waiting for their “One Day”. There are a Few Things that I really stepped up: Faith, Prayer & Health.

I was a working Woman working Monday-Friday, Office Job & I was Blessed. But Life Happens. I was Let Go. At First it felt like a Blow. Like wait… what just happened?! But then I told myself God… You are in the midst of this. Do your thang”. For about 2 weeks I was feeling Anxiety like crazy. It’s a trip how your mind takes over, If you Let It! I asked God in Prayer one Night “What’s my purpose in this Season? What do you want me to do”? And as clear as Crystal I heard him say “Prepare Yourself For Your Miracle”. I knew what Miracle He was talking about & I knew I had to make changes in my lifestyle. It’s amazing how God will ask us to do Our Part & He will Do the Rest. It’s pretty neat because it’s everything You Prayed For & Some.

Faith- Complete Trust & Confidence. Which meant, I couldn’t let any doubt enter my mind. Since I had all the free time in the world now that I wasn’t working… Reading God’s word & really studying it was almost like my full time job. The more you fill your mind with God’s word, there is absolutely no room for Lies. Period. Everyday I would memorize a new scripture & I spoke it over my Life & over my Miracle.

Prayer- With Faith comes Prayer. I had to take my Faith into my Prayer Life & Pray My Heart Out. Can I seriously Be Honest? Sometimes in Prayer we can lose our Main Focus. We are so consumed with the “Desire’s of Our Heart” But God Should be Our Main Desire. My Prayer Life Shifted. It completely changed. I wasn’t focusing on my wants & needs (Even though God cares about them) But my Faith was so Strong all I wanted to do in Prayer was Tell God How Faithful He Was (and Still Is) & Remind Him Of His Promises Over My Life. I would Cry, I would Sing, I would be on my Knee’s, Blasting Worship. Everyday, In My Prayer Closet, There was always Something New. A Fresh Outpouring & A New Me. I could Feel My Miracle Around the Corner. Now it was all About Waiting & Trusting Him.

Health- So… I Love Food & I Love to Eat My Favorite Food. I mean, who doesn’t? It’s kinda funny how God will just kinda poke at you & tell you to Chill. Lay Low on the Junk Food. If he was cleaning me Out Spiritually, He also wanted to do it Physically. It was God & his Perfect timing let me tell you. A bunch of my Girlfriends from Church went in on a 7 week Weight Loss Challenge. I didn’t really care about Winning the Money (although it would have been nice Lol) I did it more to get my butt back on Track & to stay motivated. High Protein & No Carbs was my Diet. The First 2 weeks, yeah your Body kinda feels like it’s going into shock. I mean No Carbs. But by the 3rd week I felt strong, I felt Lighter & to be Honest… I Felt Happier. Self Control is one of the Fruits of The Holy Spirit & it’s What God kept reminding me when I was tempted to just Give up & eat what I wanted Lol.

Faith, Weights & Protein Shakes was an Everyday thing for me. I joined a Gym, My Diet was going Amazing but I didn’t win the Weight Loss Challenge. Because by Then I was Pregnant. The Obsession of Having my “One Day” was no Longer An Obsession. I made God my Obsession. I didn’t just let Go of My Dream to become a Mama. I Let Go & I Gave it to God.

God is in the Waiting. God is Definitely aware of your Situation. & God is All about Miracles. No Miracle is too Impossible for God. Believe in What You Pray For. See how God Moves. In Obedience there comes A Great Reward. Not only was I Blessed with my Miracle, God had totally given me a New Heart. In this Season, It was all about Preparation.

Don’t Worry About Anything: Instead, Pray About Everything” Philippians 4:6

Authentic

When I considered starting a Blog the first thing I told myself was “But I don’t live such an exciting life?!” What in the World was I thinking?! I get up in the morning & immediately I am Super Mom. I attend to Cora All Day. Everyday is an adventure with my little one, So I Know for a Fact that my Life Being Boring was a complete lie, and God really checked my heart & He was quick to do so, while in prayer one morning. In prayer I heard God say Authentic. Just that simple but Bold Word. The meaning of Authentic is- Not False, Not Copied. Genuine. Real. Umm…. Hey God, that’s exactly what you created me to be! Isn’t it amazing how God designed us to be unique in our very own way?! It’s mind blowing when you stop & really think about it. But we do live in a world that EVERYTHING revolves around Social Media, Hollywood, Celebrities sharing the latest trend, who wore their outfit best & you also see complete strangers living their best life, which there is nothing wrong. They work hard for their success. What I am trying to say is with Social Media you can totally get caught up & lost in what your body “should look like” and thinking having all kinds of money is what makes you “Successful”. Or capturing “The Perfect Picture” get all kinds of Likes & that’s suppose to define how “Popular” you really are. I noticed I started comparing myself to other bloggers while I was looking for direction in what kind of Blog I wanted to start. I also noticed when doing that, my Dream of starting a Blog kinda died. So… I went back to Basics… I went to My Bible for direction. The Scripture That I was Lead to Read was the Famous yet Powerful…

WOAH! That’s pretty deep. We were created to be One Of A Kind. Original. Not Imitated. I was Made to Be Me & God’s Word reminds me of that. So every morning I would wake up, Brush my teeth & look at myself in the mirror & say that Scripture Out Loud. I did that challenge for a week straight & my results were… well, I no longer found myself comparing to others. I was walking confidently & felt Beautiful, even if i wasn’t wearing any make-up. And when I was on Social Media I found myself being Encouraged not Comparing.

God’s Word changes our attitude around. It fills in a void that at times we turn to the world to fill. Today, if you are feeling discouraged, un-motivated or perhaps not knowing what your purpose is… Go to God’s Word. Read a Scripture & declare it over your life. Over your situation, over your Dreams & watch God Come in like BOOM! The God I serve is a Confident God, so I Too should be Confident.

Okay, so another thing that you should know is… I Love Target. Seriously. You know how people say “I walked around the park today”. Well for me is “I walked around Target today”. Even if I don’t buy anything, I still enjoy it. During the week of Declaring God’s Word over my life, I walked through the Decor section & read this. It was like God telling me “I Got You”.

So say this with me.

Dear Jesus,

Help me today & everyday to walk Boldly in Faith. Help me to not turn to the world for approval or to fill a void, that only You can fill. Your word say’s you created me to be Strong & Courageous. For me not to be afraid or discouraged for you are with me wherever I go. Thank You for Loving the way you do. For being so mindful of my Dreams & Desires. You created me to be Original, Unique & Fearless. In you is where I find my Strength. It’s in your Presence where I am completely Satisfied. In Jesus Name

Amen.

We are who God say’s we are. He has created us with a unique & profound calling in this life. We just need to be reminded. Here are more scriptures if you’re looking for some… Enjoy God & His Promises over your life.

•You Are Beautiful- Psalm 45:11

•You Are Unique- Psalm 139:13

•You Are Created with a Purpose- Jeremiah 29:11

•You Are Strong- Psalm 18:35

•You Are Empowered- Philippians 4:13

Start off with those & see how God Transforms your Thoughts. Remember friends & Family. God created us to be…
