I’ve read the story of Nehemiah several times and this time (you can check out my previous blog post about Nehemiah here), I was amazed to see how it related to my current situation. I’ve been working on staying close to God, reading my bible a little more, trying to remember who He is and not believe lies from the enemy about God, myself, and what God has promised me.Continue reading “Refuse to be Discouraged like Nehemiah”
Last month, I watched my favorite movie, The Ten Commandments. I’ve written about this movie before but after watching it again, I’ve gained some wisdom and insight about a few more scenes:Continue reading “More Lessons from The Ten Commandments”
This is a recap of the last video with a couple of additional examples. God will give you discernment about people in your life–friends, co-workers, dating prospects, etc. He will also give you discernment about a situation you’re dealing with … Continue reading Signs of Discernment PART TWO
In this video, I discuss: 1. Marsai Martin from Blackish (her PSA re: bullying and choosing kindness) 2. A few of my examples of dealing with problematic people with help from the Lord 3. Why it’s important to have Jesus … Continue reading Bullying & Suicide–Don’t Fall for the Nonsense PART TWO
As I mentioned in another post, I had bought a sewing machine (Singer 3342 FashionMate) last summer and had been taking sewing classes. I was enjoying making different items and recently started making small tote bags. About a week ago, I started working on a tote bag and noticed that my white thread had run out, so I decided to use another spool of white thread that I purchased from Walmart. I noticed that the thread was a little thicker (the label said it was craft and sewing thread) and hoped it wouldn’t cause a problem with my machine, but I decided to try it anyway.
So today is the first day of 2020 and 2019 is over! It seems like the year went by so fast!
This makes me think of 2 Peter 3:8-9: “…With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” The older I get, the more time seems to fly by. There are times when I hear about a news story that occurred five years ago and I think, “That was FIVE years ago?!” Where did the time go?
Today, I read the story of Joseph and the Potiphar’s wife (for some reason, this story has been on my mind the past few days). Joseph had been sold by his brothers into slavery and Potiphar bought him and had him living in his home. Potiphar noticed that God was with Joseph and caused him to prosper at everything he did; therefore, Potiphar made Joseph in charge of his property, administrative affairs, and his household. Potiphar’s wife also noticed Joseph and tried to seduce him, but he refused, saying that he wasn’t going to sin against God. She continued her … Continue reading Ugly Circumstances Can Lead to a Beautiful Ending
Today, I stopped by my local Walmart to pick up a few things after work. As I headed towards the entrance a man stopped me and asked if I could give him a couple of dollars. He explained that he found out that his mom/mother-in-law passed away and he was trying to gather cab fare (he said it was $37 dollars and he was a couple of dollars short) to get to the hospital. The man also stated that his wife and someone else (daughter? can’t remember) were sitting outside the store but may have went into the restroom. He … Continue reading What in the World??
My favorite show is Death in Paradise on channel 11. It’s a mystery/whodunnit type show in the Caribbean where the detective figures out who killed who by the end of the show. I like the characters and the scenery reminds me of when I went to Jamaica years ago. My hair has grown quite a bit since I chopped my locs off last year. I can’t believe that next month will make 1 year! Caring for my hair at this length has been waaaaay less time consuming. I’ve been longing to get back to creative activities and to find … Continue reading Random Thoughts/Updates–What I’ve Been Up To
