Loving Who You Are

In today’s society women are not in love with themselves. Many are in love with the idea of loving self, but they do not understand what it really means to love self. Some feel that by having a man it means that they know how to love. There are some women who believe that if they are beaten by their men, she is being loved. Why is it that we do not understand what LOVE is? Is it because we were never shown by the women before us? Is it the influence of television and media that says women should objectify themselves in order to find love?

I believe that all women, young and old, not matter the race, size, height, etc., should learn to love self. Once we learn to do this, no one will be able to tell us who we are, how we should look, what type of job we should have, how we should dress. Once we learn to love ourselves, we will be a force to be reckoned with! Once we learn to move on from pasts hurts and realize that our past does not determine the outcome of our futures, we will be able to set the path for future generations.

This is the first blog of many. As you read this, think about where you are and where you want to be. After reading this, take the time to look in the mirror and smile, and tell yourself that you are beautiful. Let today be the first day of your new life. A new beginning for a new you. Although  I do not know all of you, I still embrace you as my sister! You are beautiful my sister and today is the day that you begin to embrace your beauty and love yourself, every flaw and all, love yourself. Now go ahead take a look in the mirror, smile and hug yourself and tell yourself that you are beautiful and you are loved, if not by anyone else, know that you are loved by God!

Thank you for reading and Be Blessed!

Faith connects our weakness to God’s strength.

I borrowed this from Our Daily Bread Devotional Readings. I wanted to share this, I hope you like it!
The Ironman Triathlon consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run. It is not an easy feat for anyone to accomplish. But Dick Hoyt participated in the race and completed it with his physically disabled son Rick. When Dick swam, he pulled Rick in a small boat. When Dick cycled, Rick was in a seat-pod on the bike. When Dick ran, he pushed Rick along in a wheelchair. Rick was dependent on his dad in order to finish the race. He couldn’t do it without him. We see a parallel between their story and our own Christian life. Just as Rick was dependent on his dad, we are dependent on Christ to complete our Christian race. As we strive to live a God-pleasing life, we realize that in spite of our best intentions and determination, we often stumble and fall short. By our strength alone, it is impossible. Oh, how we need the Lord’s help! And it has been provided. Paul declar…

Rejection

People are always concerned about what others think, what others are doing. If the next person is doing better than them. They want to know if their cars are better, job is better, if the next person makes more money, marriage is better, children are better, etc. Why? Why do these things matter? Why do people try so hard to be accepted? You want to know the answer...It's because of the Spirit of Rejection.

What is the Spirit of Rejection....you ask? Well let me tell you.

Rejection is something that steals life. It keeps people from moving forward. Rejection says, "I'm not good enough, so why do I even try". It can also say, "I just want to be accepted, so I will do whatever to fit it." Rejection will break you down and make you feel worthless. Rejection will cause you to walk out of your purpose. Rejection is a Liar!

Why give into rejection?

Because when someone has been told something for so long, they believe it. It becomes apart of their DNA. It molds this p…

To my husband

I know we never do this or express ourselves publicly, but I wanted to make sure that my words captured my heart's words. I want you to know that you mean the world to me. You are exactly who I need in this cold and hateful world. You keep me balanced, you keep me mellow, with your cool and calming demeanor. You make me feel that everything will be alright in the world. You are the epitome of what love is. Despite our ups and downs,  you love me. We basically grew up together and we are thick as thieves. When things are bad, they're bad but they could always be worse. We always seem to make it through. You are an awesome father to our sons. They admire you so much. You make them so proud and they're so happy to call you daddy! You are everything I prayed for. God reminded me of this. When I was at the point of giving up on us. God sat me down and listed everything I asked for in a husband and more and the list pointed out all of your attributes and characteristics. God had…
