My Greatest Influence

Mother’s Day is approaching and many folks have high anxiety hoping they could cope with their mother or mother figure no longer in their presence.

Sometimes we don’t know how to channel our grief rather it’s been a year to ten years and more but the love is still there. The best thing to do for your loved one or friend who is experiencing this grief is to be there with your presence.

I would love to be able to say Happy Mother’s Day to my grandma, the strongest beautiful and sassy person I knew.  I know of many sacrifices’ she made to keep a smile on my face, many prayers she petition to keep me safe, and there were many times we would just sit and not say a word, being a comforter.

So yesterday I found myself exhausted not from tiresome but of wanting to hug or kiss from this special person, my Grandma Dot

I truly miss her .. and I’m always telling stories to my daughter about her so she could know what type of person she was.  Make Mother’s Day a happy day, there are many more people in our lives to celebrate who are here, that old saying give them their flowers while they’re still here.

When You Think He Acting funny

When He acting funny
Because God is loving, caring, and compassionate we tend to think others are the same even in stress situations. God is sovereign, strong and mighty
God has everything we need for he is the great I am .. a Way Maker a Promise Keeper a Mind Regulator
He is everything we need Him to be .. He Proves to us time and time again
I’m so glad when I pray he hears and answers my prayer according to his will …
We have a God we can go to for every situation is our life …
But what happens when you have a problem with God?

Scripture Psalm 13:

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

Feeling of abandonment and rejection
Saying things like: Hello here I am .. do you see me … can I come out this depression .. Oh Lord have mercy on me (the cry of blind Bartimaeus)
Don’t you know trouble don’t last always and we must trust Him .. I’m trusting in his character (maturity)
Just because everything doesn’t go your way don’t mean you can’t still have faith
From everything he said at end of the song he says .. ‘God has been bountiful, beautiful good to me’

Distractions can get in the way

Distractions tempt us to turn aside things that are purposeful.

Distractions are temporary pleasures that lead to destruction.

Also, the past can be a distraction from moving forward in God’s purpose. Don’t allow your yesterday to determine your tomorrow
Press Forward

Philippians 3:13-14
Brethren, I count not myself yet to have laid hold: but one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, 14 I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus
