You’re not Super Woman

So often we are lead to believe being Super Woman is a way of life and the way God intended for us to live our lives.  So not true biblically we know the seventh day is considered a day of rest so then why do we continue to work everyday? 

  Well today I am making it A day of rest after church- Because I know God only made one of me therefore I often have to power down and administer selfcare  and today is one of those days because I’m not Super Woman…though our society teaches us to dwell on multi-tasking and  consider us successful as we appear to be getting things done; nevertheless  in the end we are exasperated, we suffer from exhaustion, anxiety and cognitive overload. I move at Gods pace and what he wants me to do he will lead. Success is my very own definition of doing what makes me happy or what I think is best for my family. So though I may not fit everyone’s description or fall into any particular stereotypical category I am happy just being me. #myownsuccessstory #selfcare #relaxing #success #happiness #cognitiveoverload #reflection #sunday #vibes #exhaustion #anxiety #stress #multitask #society #psychology #psychproblems #endstigma

πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™The Power of PrayerπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

Hey Loves

IMG_8936.PNG Often times we hear someone say pray for me or I will pray for you. Do we take those sincerely, do we believe in prayer? People all over the world are praying and praying boldly. When we are taught to pray and we know why we pray then we are able to pray for each other and believe in the power of prayer . Prayer is an earnest, sincere or devout petition to God . It grants us the capability of building a relationship with God as it is a connector to God, a lifelong quest and the best quality about prayer is that it cannot be taken away from you . That’s right no matter where you are or what you are doing you can pray as it does not require a physical space, gift of speech, hearing or body part. It is a lifelong quest to pray and to pray effectively because God knows our wants and our needs. The more we pray the stronger our relationship with God becomes as we learn to pray strong bold prayers instead of praying exactly the same prayer and becoming flat, stale or even hackneyed when prayed out loud.

IMG_9135.JPG I remember as a child every night we gathered around my Moms’ bed and we all took turns praying and I prayed the same prayer nightly. My Mom was always weak and sick so I always prayed for safety from all harm and good health. My prayers were simply quite hackneyed, one night I remember my sister laughing during my prayer and my great grand aunt reprimanding her afterwards telling her it was her duty as an older sister to teach me to pray instead of laughing at me. Was I embarrassed??? of course yes!!! However, I didn’t know better so I continued praying my same prayer. As the years progressed and I heard people pray openly I would always be scared as their prayers always seemed like perfection. One day in an intimate bible study setting I had a prayer request and to my surprise I was asked to lead in prayer. I could not disappear, I could not say no, I was a woman of God I was studying Breaking Free by Beth Moore how could I back out, how could I let my fellow women of a God know that speaking publicly was one of my fears???? With a pounding chest, panic setting in and a fear of my sisters laughter….timidly I began to pray. Well I got through it and I started practicing praying out loud at home and I must say it has built up confidence in me to pray, to trust God and forged a deeper relationship with God. The power of prayer has given me confidence to pray openly as it has become not a rule but a ritual in my life. I know to pray in supplication, intercession, adoration and thanksgiving and I often challenge myself to write my prayers during my worship times at home.

IMG_9138.JPG Now when I pray I feel confident, I feel joy in talking to God, I feel confident when I stand in the front of a room full of people my fears have been lifted, the power of prayer has set me free and I now feel as tall as a giraffe despite being only 5’6″.

IMG_9136.JPG God loves us, we are his people and he is our God, prayer is a small task to activate his blessings in and over our lives, to be thankful while he listens to the dreams of our hearts and the troubles of our minds. Though he knows them he wants to hear us actively acknowledge and embrace them.

IMG_9137.JPG Relieve yourself of earthly worries, fears and stress put it in prayer and grow in faith and trust. Accept the summons from God to build a relationship with him through daily prayer instead of making sales calls when you want to be delivered from your earthly problems.

You can start by praying Psalm 139:23-24
Search me, O God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting”.
Amen.

The virtue of Patience….blessed is she

Hey Loves,

“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45

As I sat in devotion this morning I chose to focus on this particular scripture that I had received from a friend. I found it fitting as everyone seems to be living rather spontaneously. We live in a society which makes everything available at our fingertips so we have lost the virtue of patience. The few of us whom still enjoy shopping away from our computers, When we walk into a store we don’t expect to encounter a line or have someone wait on us. We are microwaving most of our experiences and as a result the relationships we form are in quantity however not of high quality.

IMG_8957.JPG
We often need to stop and think do we need 5000 friends on social media or do we need friends whom we actually know and can relate to? Friends whom are supportive of us should be the only ones we need in our circles. It is good to have a global connection and relationships with others but it’s even greater when we have a personal relationship with God. The word of God promises to bless us and pour into us, God gave his only begotten son for us. Yet we often wonder why we experience the struggles that we do and think all is against us. As believers we ought to encourage and nourish our faith so that we can hear the voice of God. Know that while we are being impatient God is working diligently for us, it may not be when we expect things to happen for us but in the time that God deems it right for us. Think about it without a test we would have no testimony and without being a victim we would not be a victor. God loves victories and that’s why we encounter struggles so that by overcoming them we are able to share our victories and make a believer of the non-believer.

October is the month of awareness: get educated

Hey Loves,
October is often significant of changes as the leaves turn into beautiful colors and then color the lawn. Women slip into a different mode if dress as they embrace cooler temperatures. October however, is also a month of awareness: yes this one month is shared by Breast a Cancer awareness and Domestic Violence awareness as well as Mental Illness awareness week. oh yeah and these are all important as they all impact each other based on the psychosocial stressors which are likely to be experienced with occurrences. Get educated on what we can do to fight breast cancer, end domestic violence abuse, diagnose and treat mental illness

IMG_8825.JPG Take the time to educate yourself, support a cause, share with someone because sharing is caring.

Freedom from strongholds…….fear unleashed

Hey Loves,
We all have things, or habits that we like to do but sometimes they consume so much of our time that they become unhealthy. Does that sound like you? well you can stop being a hostage to those habits or things. Anything done in exCess can become a stronghold…..

20140626-124124-45684707.jpgas the days go by I am surrounded with people whom all have so much to say or do. My days seem to stay the same or sometimes get busier than ever though My phone rings much less than it used to as I realize there is a freedom all over me! Yes, I feel free, freedom from everything that held me back. Just being fearful of everyone and everything…..those fears don’t live here anymore. I have unleashed those fears and I am ready to walk in my purpose. Think about it, don’t you sometimes wish you could just be free and do that which makes you happy . of course you can do so but in order to do so you have to focus on what is holding you back. Being able to recognize the strongholds in your life will help you to let them go. After all think about it if you don’t know something is a bother then of course you won’t be bothered by it. Late post from last week’s movie outing.

20140626-125849-46729700.jpg Though it may take much meditation for acceptance of the strongholds in your life just remember denial is always the first step so if you are denying what it is that’s holding you back from your purpose then that’s it. You see if it isn’t pushing you forward then its a stronghold which creates excuses for you to stay the same.

20140626-130230-46950803.jpg
Be strong enough to recognize the strongholds, to be able to boot them out of your life, and stop being a hostage from whatever is holding you back. Reclaim you today…..unleash!!!

Sometimes you have to Detoxify your body and your relationships

20140618-075834-28714866.jpg Hey Loves,
Lately, I have been thinking about relationships, I have been counseling others, reading about relationships and basically surveying the relationships I share with others. Despite the type of relationship I have determined that not all relationships are deemed healthy. A) Though we may have to be in a relationship with someone we may not personally like them, however based on the context of the relationship you may have to deal with them. So how to deal with that person at work with whom you can’t get along? Understand that it is ok to have single relationships with someone though you work well together you don’t have to be friends. The moment you know this and understand this it will detoxify your mind and body of unhealthy relationships

20140618-081003-29403558.jpg B)So you grew up with someone or you were the closest of friends with someone and overtime you realize the relationship is changing, you don’t see much of each other and when you do then there are disagreements about everything or almost everything. You are trying to save your friendship because you have history together, you try to hash it out however, it’s more arguing and hurting of each other’s feelings than ever, then guess what despite the years or time invested in this relationship understand that you will sometimes have to let go of some people that are familiar by giving them the latitude they need. Yes it may be very emotional as we are humans and we love familiarity yet everyone that starts with you will not finish with you some people become toxic you then have to detoxify that relationship.

20140618-082106-30066962.jpg
C) Sometimes you have your family members and you love them so much however, every time you get together at family functions it turns into rage, anger and family feuds. They always have something negative or hurtful to say to someone and it’s just always upsetting to one or more other family members. They sometimes do activities which are not acceptable by the family which makes them look for negativity to highlight at family events or just talk about unnecessary things which are likely to hurt the feelings of some family members. Ooh yes you need to detoxify yourself of this relationship, observe the activities of your family member overtime to ensure that it is truly a toxic relationship. Review the relationship to see why the family member is always acting out and inflicting emotional pain. Reason with yourself : is there a way you can reach this person, in getting them to understand the repercussions of their behaviors? If not then guess what, act slowly but surely remove yourself by telling your family member that being family is not a choice but maintaining a toxic relationship is a choice so unless they can curve or change their behaviors then by all means you will need to dissociate from their company.

20140618-084741-31661554.jpg While working on detoxifying your relationships it is also super awesome for you to do an emotional self evaluation to ensure that you have not become toxic as well. Sometimes it’s easier to recognize the toxins in others unlike those within yourself. Be honest when you critique yourself as you too can become toxic and vulnerable based on situations. If you are content with the person you are and the way you treat your friend, family, coworkers and every relationship then by all means congratulations you are engaging in success relationships. If you are not content then reexamine you and your relationships its time to detoxify.
