There's times in life where we find ourselves in positions we thought wouldn't happen so soon. It could be:
A new opportunity
A new job
A new relationship
You began to have a crush on someone
A break up
You let go of a friend
You lose a job
You buy a new car
Your car breaks down on you
You become homeless ....
The list can go on..
Life is full of twists and turns
Even good things will come and you feel it should not be because you get so used to things not going right.
When bad things come it kinda boost your faith in doubting your life because we live a life of expecting disappointment.
I find myself not desiring better because I feel better is unavailable for me. When things don't go as they seem, we tend to embrace brokenness. We tend to go towards the familiar of that brokenness. Brokenness is a lot of our comfort zones.
I found myself in a compromising position and I had to choose to have faith in what I truly desire. A desire is something you don't have yet and it's a strong drawing to what you want in life.
I am writing this to encourage you to embrace healing. When things don't go as they seem whether it's good or bad....
Accept the challenges of the bad. Embrace truth that you are going to make mistakes. Embrace that regardless of what was and what it seems that change is always possible. Staying in a sunken place because you fell into a place you genuinely don't want to be in is not the best place to be.
Embrace that you will manifest everything you desire. Do something different so you don't find yourself in a place that doesn't push you toward your desires. Be thankful for what you have accomplished and be thankful for what you haven't recieved yet.
What about if you have recieved something you feel you don't deserve?
Embrace grace and favor. God gives good things to His children. A lot of what we have gained wasn't deserved. But, if God says you can have it. Give him the glory and recieve it and expect more. Don't be afraid that this good gift is going to spoil or disappear because that's looking at it from that broken place. Recieve what God has for you. Be thankful, take care of it and be responsible with it. God gives more to those who take care of what they already have.
When things don't go as you think they should.... embrace the lesson or embrace the blessing, wait and nurture it.

Me at Church Anniversary 2018!!!!! Before I found this dress, I was a bit discouraged because I wanted to attend my church anniversary and I didnt have much money left. I was looking everywhere for a dress and couldn't find anything. I was just gonna stay home. I prayed and asked God to help me find a nice dress no more than $50. I didnt plan on going in this store. But my mom's was taking forever with my little brother shopping for football gear so I ditched them lol. When I saw this dress, I thought o ok this is nice. I guess I'll try it on. When I put this dress on. I fell in love. I am a laid back jeans and tshirt type of lady lol. I honestly had never worn a dress like this before lol. When I put this on. I immediately smiled and my heart flooded with so much confidence. I was praying to God ..like wow!!! You really created a beautiful woman. I struggled with my outer appearance all my life. I thought I was fat and ugly. But the Lord is healing me in the ar
I chose to accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior around the age of 20. I knew about God and I liked churched as a child and attended a couple services a year throughout my upbringing. My family taught me things about God and some of those words stuck with me, but my own desires were a priority for a long period of time in my life. It wasn't until I turned 20 moved to Sacramento to live with and take care of my mom who became disabled and begin to seek Christ more. I had a promiscuous past, dated and "hooked up" with men. God used a weakness of mine to actually provide me with great strength. He used a guy to share the knowledge of God with me. This guy I thought I would marry would soon exit my life 8 months later to marry someone else. God had him do what was needed to be done and removed him. What was needed to be done was me actually recognizing and getting to know God for myself. I needed to know God not from the point of what my family said to me, not
Shame is a deep issue. It lingers....it seems as if you grow from shame but shame is something that will linger around until the perfect opportunity for it to show itself in us. It isn't a one and done thing to overcome. I believe that the cause of it is, worry. I believe the worry comes from what other people will think about you. Worrying about what others think stems from comparison. Comparing yourself to someone is a result of judgement. Not judgement of others, but judgement of yourself. Shame causes unease. It causes us to critique everything about ourselves. The way look, how we sit, how we eat, even how we act around certain people. It will cause us to review and rewind in our heads, conversations, actions and even short encounters with people. When we review it, we critique and suggest we should have done something different that would have aided on a positive note or even if it was positive, it could have been even greater moment. Shame will cause you not to move fo
