*THANKFULNESS!*

It’s crazy how the year has flown by, I hope you guys are doing great today and are filled with God’s grace and favor!

Today I want to share three things that I am blessed to have. On Sunday, my pastor preached on thankful-ness and I felt the spirit of thankful-ness drop in the whole place. I felt such gratitude and such a sense of grounding after this message. So here are the things I reflected on and the things that I am thankful for.

  1. I am thankful for life itself: The fact that I am alive today means God has a future and hope for my life. He has a calling and a purpose for my life. The fact that I am still breathing and able to function with every fiber in my body. The fact that I didn’t die in a car accident, the fact that my organs and bones are still fully functioning. That I am taking a deep breath in and out. It means God is still working and is not done in my life! And he is not done in yours either!! Praise God!

2. I am thankful for hard seasons: Times where I feel like throwing in the towel, times where I feel depressed, angry, hopeless, bitterness, sorrowful, upset, and lost in my situation. Because I feel like the Lord uses those opportunities to reveal merry-go-rounds in my lifeThose rides that spin over and over until you get off the ride or the ride stops. Or insanity which in definition means doing the same thing over and over expecting a change. Whether it’s the same attitude day by day, the same hopeless feeling, or the same anger every day. I believe the Lord uses those moments and those emotions to reveal something deep in us. A yearning for him, a yearning for change.

3. I am thankful for the opportunity to change: To change my mind.

Romans 8:6 (ESV) says: 6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

Colossians 3:2 (ESV)2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

Romans 12:2 (NKJV): 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I am thankful that God gives me the opportunity to change my attitude, bad habits, and most of all allow me to Repent for my sins and all the things that hold me captive from the will of God in my life.

I am so thankful soo so thankful!

What are a couple of things you are thankful for today?

I encourage you to write them down, or comment them down below in the comments! 

Let’s close this out in prayer and take it to the heavenly throne:

Lord, I pray you touch everyone reading this I pray you help them. And I pray that you help them see that you are doing a new thing in heartbreak. In the times every emotion or any season they might be in or hard thing they are going through. Help them see *the best is yet to come* I ask and pray in your powerful, mighty, and precious name, In the name of Jesus Christ! Amen! and Amen! ❤️

THE DAILY BATTLE – 🗝 KEY TO VICTORY (A quick word of encouragement)

The daily battle is this: How can I serve God daily when I always keep on falling short / or in other words sinning.
Well, you don’t and will never do it on your own. Great – GREAT – GREAT is his faithfulness!!! He is with you everywhere you go. I’m talking about everywhere. In your car in your bathroom, in your heart, EVERYWHERE!
I have been wrestling with a lot lately regarding this blog, Youtube, and my social media accounts in general. I felt stuck needing and wanting God to help me in this area & in all reality just searching for confirmation on what he wanted me to do. I’m a perfectionist so I feel sometimes I leave Jesus in a box. I feel as though I have to achieve a certain point or many accomplishments, as a mom of two, as a wife, and as a business owner alongside my husband. But the reality is God loves me EVERY – SINGLE – DAY.

At every second of the day. Imagine all the seconds there in a day. God loves you at every single second and moment!!! Wow!!! I’m talking about when you yell at your kids and no one is watching, I’m talking about when you are alone and you are struggling with something that only you and God know about. You feel perhaps like a failure, maybe you feel alone or angry at something or a situation in general. You feel as though you cannot feel God anymore. Let me tell you: HE – IS – RIGHT – THERE WITH YOU! Imagine your best friend or a very dear friend right now in your mind. When your talking with them don’t you just love how engaged they are listening to what you have to say. Whether you guys are at a coffee shop engaging one another.

Or you are at their house talking and conversing on life and all that God is doing and has done for you in your life in the past years or months! THAT – that same way God wants to speak with you and converse with you. He wants to be that best friend you talk to at Starbucks and laugh and have a joyous time with! He wants to be that friend that looks at you and engages with you at every second loving on you & listening to every detail and every story you have to say. I don’t know who needs this today but I want to let you that the KEY to everyday battles Is true, conversing with him about every detail and about everything that you are going through in everyday life. But the key is also this: Listen to his still voice don’t just talk over your best friend at the coffee shop (Jesus) your best friend. A good friend asks how they are doing outside of themselves they also want to know how the other friend is doing & how God is working in their lives! The same way we should ask Jesus as our best friend how we should go about our situation, and what his will is for our lives in whatever situation you may be going through: and know God never directs or allows anything he doesn’t have a greater plan for in your life!


In other words: every situation you go through is for the glory of God. The good and the hurtful things of life. Listen to his voice today don’t just talk over him like your best friend at the coffee shop you want to hear what each other has to say!

Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray this can bless somebody today, I pray that whoever reads this today you bless & you honor them. Letting them know that you are right there with them today. That you want to speak to them & love on them and encourage them. Just like our closest friends that encourage us when we are down in life. I pray that this can speak to somebody today. Touch them today! & let them be changed forever in Jesus’ name I pray & I pray amen & amen!

God bless you all today – Let me know in the comments if this blessed you!
