Hey, I took a few weeks of and it felt so good. If you follow me on social media you can see what I’ve been up to this summer such as summer vacation and my business, but other than that, God is good.
So, I titled this blog, You gotta get up, because I have to be honest. Sometimes I need to be my own cheerleader and this is exactly what I tell myself. Ladies, have you ever felt like everything in life is just weighing on you and if the wind blows just right, it could blow you over. Lets talk…
Positive words have a powerful effect on the way you live your life. Daily affirmations will propel you forward in the direction of your dreams and goals. Let me tell you a story.
One day I was feeling quite tired and really overwhelmed. The house needed cleaning, laundry was piling up, and there were dished in the sink from last nights dinner.
So, here we are at the end of another year. Looking back I would say that 2016 has been a year full of blessings, opportunities, accomplished dreams, but there is plenty ahead in sight I would love to begin.
Have you ever really struggled to trust and believe that God is who he says he is? I know I’ve been in that place several times and in the midst, found myself wondering how I got there.
Struggling to keep your marriage alive? In balance? Wondering where is God in all this?
I know what that’s like.
About 7 years ago, I was in a marriage that had me wishing I could run far, far, away and never return. It was not good for either of us. I felt my blood pressure rise with each passing day and it was all I could do to have a good day and not wake up with a headache.
Life can be rough and tough and is not always fair. On certain days I feel as if I give and give and never get what seems like an equal return. “Wheres my blessing for being so committed?” Have you ever felt that way? Im sure its just a moment in time certain days, however, it feels like eternity.
In this day and age, there are plenty of women who feel they aren’t enough. The have insecurities with themselves, in their marriages, raising children, in their careers, and in the social and relationship world. I used to feel like I needed to compete with every single woman every time I walked out of the house. I would feel as though I wasn’t skinny enough, I wasn’t pretty enough, I needed more make-up, or my clothes didn’t fit right. But, why would I feel this way when everyone else was telling me different. To be honest, their opinions and my opinion of myself didn’t match up. I was placing myself in this bubble God never intended me to be in.
The Wilderness can be a scary place to be especially if you are there alone, or worse, at night. If you’ve ever been camping far off from the main road, or on a long nature hike, this may be the closest you have come to actually being in the wilderness. The wilderness can be considered a place where there are very few others around and may give you a sense of solitude.
