Don’t Mess With Mama’s Baby

So this is supposed to be my off week, but since my Girlfriends are still on a sabbatical, no shade, (well maybe a little lol 😉 ) and because I feel like writing, I’m going to do just that!

Last weekend Sweet Pea and I attended one of her classmates’ 4th birthday party. Now I have to be honest, I was reluctant of going at first. Sweet Pea attends a predominantly Caucasian school, that doesn’t bother me, but the idea of going to someone’s house knowing we would be the “only two” made me second guess if we should go or not. I had to quickly remind myself that it wasn’t about my feelings, I needed to stop being selfish and put the focus back on what mattered, giving Sweet Pea some girl time with her peers.

So I got up, got us both dressed (as twins in black and white 🙂 ), pulled out her Cinderella dress, picked up a gift and headed to the Princess themed party! When we arrived everyone was extremely friendly, Sweet Pea was a little shy since we were in a new space, but once she saw some faces she recognized she quickly warmed up. The hosting mom had on her fairy godmother dress as she was the “head princess in charge” and got the games and activities started. We made crowns, had a fashion show, ate cupcakes and had the option of Princess Punch or Fairy Fuzz to drink, cute right? lol So after all was said and done and the party was pretty much over the kids had open free play. I sat back and watched Sweet Pea interact with her peers. I noticed one little girl who was a little bossy and blatantly told Sweet Pea that she couldn’t play with the tea set, pushed her back and handed the cup to another little girl. Okay if you know me by now you know that didn’t sit well with me at all. I wanted to jump in and take over like no she can play, but I sat back and observed to see how Sweet Pea would handle it. She didn’t let it bother her and kept playing. So then this little child told my baby “You can be my waitress”………………………………….*blank stare*……………………….

dont-even-think-about-it-1432948_1280

It didn’t bother Sweet Pea because she just wanted to play, but it bothered mommy a lot! This little chick even went and got another girl and said that Sweet Pea would be their waitress. Now remember I said we were the “only two” at the party. None of the other moms were near us so they didn’t hear what was going on. Ya’ll when I tell you my ears were burning from the rage that was building up. First you push my child, then tell her that she can be your hired help….I had to remind myself that this little girl was only 4 and is only a product of what she’s taught in her home. As you probably guessed by now, it wasn’t long before we gathered our belongings, said our thank yous to the host family and left.

I play about a lot of things, but my family is not one of them. My mind was all over the place after leaving. I’m thinking like does she deal with this type stuff at school all the time? Does she allow these kids to push her around? What is being said to her, or what are people’s thoughts of her? Do I have to teach her about racism at 4? This is my baby I don’t want to have this talk with her this early, but I did. I let her know to not allow anyone to push her around, that she needs to let someone know when the other kids aren’t playing fairly and most importantly I let her know that you are no one’s waitress. If that is a job she desires to have when of age fine, but you are no one’s hired help okay!!!

Girlfriends tell me, did I overreact or was I right in my thinking? I just want to protect her in any and every way that I can. I don’t want to be THAT mom but then again I do. I know she will be exposed to a lot when she’s not with me especially this day in age but I want to make sure she understands how to carry herself and defend herself when necessary. If I could put her in a bubble I would lol But since I can’t I will continue to teach her and most importantly pray for the Lord’s covering and protection over her life.

I apologize for the length of today’s post, I just needed to get it off my chest and who better to do that with than with my girlfriends. Thanks for listening or reading rather lol 🙂

Peace & Blessings,

New Beginnings

August…the 8th month of the year….8…the number of “New Beginnings”…..

arrow-945272_1920

As I scroll through my time line, all I see are pictures of new beginnings…Pregnancy announcements, new babies, wedding pictures, new jobs, kids’ first day of school. The concept of “newness” is exciting right? Preparing yourself for a change, a fresh start if you will. As exciting as it seems sometimes change brings about new challenges. How do we move forward in our “new beginning” when challenges arrive? Or better yet how do we even reach our “something new” when faced with various obstacles that feel like they are blocking us from ever reaching that much needed reset?

Before God can bring forth change, He has to first challenge you.

I may have paraphrased that quote a bit, but this concept stuck with me after hearing it Sunday during the message. It is so easy to get discouraged and feel as though your breakthrough is never going to come when battling various issues along the way. But how bad do you really want it? What are you willing to endure to get to the finish line and start fresh? If we are so easy to give up and so quick to throw in the towel, do we really deserve it? Are we more focused on our own desires versus that which we really need? My vote would be that of our (my) own desires and self defined needs. It’s human nature, right? Maybe, but when we have given our lives over to Christ, those desires should fade away. We lay our lives down and now desire only that which He has already ordained specifically for us.

So today I want to encourage you to reevaluate your perspective of change. Accept the challenges that come, don’t run away or give up too quickly. Its kinda like the lyrics “Over the forest and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we go” lol Weird comparison, I know, but i hope you get my drift. If that little girl went through all of that to get to Grandma’s house, we can go through the valleys, jump over hurdles, dodge the wind and rain to get to the freshness of a sunny day…our new beginning.

Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert. ~ Isaiah 43:18-19

Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

Season of Loneliness

There is something wonderfully sacred that happens when a girl chooses to realize that being set aside is actually God’s call for her to be set apart.

Pause, read it again

There is something wonderfully sacred that happens when a girl chooses to realize that being set aside is actually God’s call for her to be set apart.

This quote from Lysa Terkeurst from Proverbs 31 Ministries really stuck with me after reading her devotional titled If You Ever Feel Lonely, Read This. And that I did, a few times. Each time I was left asking myself, Did she write this specifically for me?

So you’re probably thinking, okay Katesha how can you feel lonely? You’re married, have an active 4 year old, great relationship with your family, have the other 3 girlfriends, ministry friends and associates…how can you feel lonely? Hey I’m wondering the same thing, but at times I do. Let’s be honest for a minute I do have a great inner circle, but at times I still feel like I have no one to talk to. Sure I can go to my husband, but there are some things he just doesn’t understand as a man in relation to things I may experience as a woman. I could go to my mother, but at this point in her life I don’t want to bring anything to her that’s going to cause her to worry. I feel like I burden my sister with enough, she has her own life to live. My girlfriends…we just don’t talk or see each other as often as we’d like. Nothing is wrong, just our lives pull us in different directions. And yes I know they are there if I really need to talk, but sometimes I just don’t want to bother anyone, kinda crazy I know. I have great church family, but even in the midst of them I sometimes still feel as though I don’t really relate to anyone. So here I am feeling like I’m “set aside”, feeling as though I have no friends, no one to confide in, go to for advice…its just me, myself and I to deal with these inner thoughts, feelings…

That’s what the enemy wants me to believe, that I’m all alone, even sometimes feeling as though maybe even God has forgotten about me. I know deep down that is not true, but in those weak moments the feelings of loneliness increase and those thoughts seem to be true. This devotional couldn’t have dropped into my email at a better moment. I’m not alone, someone else has felt this way as well. I’m not set aside, I’m just set apart. God has me in this season for a reason, there is something that I’m missing, haven’t quite gotten a grasp of, something better that He’s preparing me for. There is a need for isolation, a lesson to be learned.

To be set apart is to be given an assignment that requires preparation.

So today I want to encourage someone who may be dealing with this same season of loneliness. Don’t give it any extra energy. End that pity party today, get out of your feelings and look for the positive side of this season in your life. There is a greater purpose for it all. No one likes the feeling of being alone, but as the author stated in her devotional, we have to find the gift in this place. I always tell people to find the positive in every situation. No matter what you are going through there is a positive aspect that can be pulled from it. And in this situation the positive side is that which is yet to come. God is preparing us for greater sis. He’s molding us into the women He desires and needs for us to be so that we can take what we’ve learned in the season and bless another sister’s life. He cares so much about us and only wants the best for us. So sometimes He has be pull us away, remove distractions, cause that feeling of loneliness so we can turn from our fleshly emotions and look to Him and Him alone. Keep praying, keep seeking His face for clarity and remember He hasn’t forgotten about you. You aren’t set aside, you’re simply set apart.

Brain Dump

braindump
Photo credit: http://wendy-nielsen.com/tag/brain-dump/

This is picture is SO accurate! At any given moment I can have 20 different thoughts within 30 different areas running through my mind. Take now for instance:

“Go check the meatballs. Wait did I send that email? What am I going to write about this week on the blog? Oh shoot I need to pack! Did I finish washing clothes? Can Sweet Pea please stop saying Mommy for just a minute? I wonder what time Hubby is getting home today? I need to take these braids out, but I don’t feel like it. What am I going to wear tomorrow? Don’t forget to pack Sweet Pea’s lunch. Will she please be quiet for a minute, i can’t hear myself think! Go check the meatballs”

LOLOLOL!!! See what I mean. It’s crazy and some what sad. With all of this going on in my brain its easy to tap out for a minute and get caught up in the whirlwind inside of my head. Not good. I need an outlet, or rather I need to get back to the one I put in place a while back…Journaling. I’ve bought so many different cute journals with the best intentions to sit down at night and write before going to bed. Time to unwind, pour out my heart, get out my frustrations, make plans for the days ahead…but to be honest that just doesn’t happen every day. I may go for a good week and write consistently, skip and day and honey that’s it! (Kinda like my work out regimen lol) I walk past that journal everyday saying I’ll do it tonight and look up a week or two later and haven’t touched it. I’m tired of doing that and I’m seeing now more and more the need for me to “brain dump” to get it all out of my system. Laying down with so many things on my mind affects my sleep, sometimes causes crazy dreams and then I wake up tired and even more thoughts than the day before. The cycle has to stop.

So enough with the excuses, time out for being “too tired”, I’m getting back to it. Writing has become my therapy, my place of peace if you will and I need to give more time to it. One so that I can keep my sanity (for real), two so I can write effective, meaningful posts (so you will keep reading), and three, the most important, so I can hear clearly from Heaven. With all of MY own wants, thoughts, desires, needs, etc. on my mind, it clouds my perspective or clear perception of the voice of the Lord. I don’t like that and in this season definitely don’t need that. I want to make sure I hear from Him and know that it is Him speaking and just not my own subconscious getting in the way.

Maybe you have it all together and this is not an area that you struggle in and if so praise God. But if not, I encourage you to designate a time daily to just have a brain dump. Get it all out of your system. Carry your journal with you if you have to. That way if you feel the need to write, you can. It will make you feel lighter, a little more focused and ready to conquer the tasks before you. We can do this Girlfriend! Pray my strength in this area and I promise to do the same for you!

A Mother’s Remorse

Traveling with kids is a hassle but to me traveling without them is even worse! In my opinion at least. A few weeks ago I had to travel with my job to Texas and was gone for pretty much the entire week. Preparing and packing was somewhat stressful. I had to make sure Sweet Pea had everything she needed for summer camp; washed, ironed and laid out all of her outfits for the week; had to make sure she had lunch to pack for the week; had to make sure Hubby was straight; wrote out the meal plan for the week; oh and had to pack and make sure I was prepared mentally for my crazy work schedule. While part of me was excited to go to the resort (it was gorgeous by the way LOL) another part of me was somewhat sad to leave Sweet Pea behind, oh and my hubby too of course LOL!! This was my first time going on an extended trip where she was knowledgeable that mommy was going away for a few days without her and she didn’t let me off easy! She’s going through a phase where she is learning to truly express her emotions. We go from “Mommy I feel sad” to “Mommy I’m angry” ending with a “Mommy I’m excited” all in one sentence LOL!! Gotta love 4 year olds right!

So back to the trip, the days leading up to my departure I made sure to explain to Sweet Pea that Mommy had to get on a big airplane and go on a trip for a few days. Of course her first question was “Am I going too” *insert sad face* *deep sigh* “Not this time Sweet Pea, but Mommy will be back before you know it.” Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this was SO hard! Isn’t it crazy how we as mothers always say that we need a break but when we get one start feeling bad or miss them immediately? Not you, okay maybe its just me! lol Fast forward to the morning that I left. Immediately when I walked in the room to tell her see you later, she looked at me with those big puppy dog eyes and said with the saddest little voice “Bye mommy” Man it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard for me not to burst into tears! I am so emotional ya’ll lol. Nana sensed the emotions between me and Sweet Pea so she quickly intervened and told Sweet Pea to tell me to have a great trip and I quickly turned around to leave. Someone please tell me that this gets better as they get older!!!

Once I arrived in Texas and throughout a very crazy and hectic work week there, I made sure to steal away if only for 5 minutes to hear my baby girl’s voice over the phone. It felt SO good to hear her “Heyyyyyy Mommy” on the other end of the line. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and our reunion was even the more special. I tried to throw hints at my hubby that he and Sweet Pea should park and wait for me at baggage claim. I like to imagine my life to be like the movies sometimes. You know seeing someone come up the escalator, hearing a big exciting scream, the two run towards each other and embrace type of reunion. But it didn’t quite pan out that way lol However when I saw the car pulling up to the curb, saw hubby’s big smile and Sweet Pea’s little head in the backseat, my heart skipped a beat. I think hubby barely put the car in park before jumping out, followed by Sweet Pea unbuckling her seat belt and leaping from that car seat. That was one of the BEST hugs I’ve ever received from her! (Okay I’m about to cry sitting here thinking about HA!) She wrapped those little arms around my neck, squeezed real tight and at that moment everything felt right with the world.

me

Becoming a mother was one of the greatest gifts the Lord could have ever blessed me with. And I try to make sure I do not take it for granted and instead cherish every moment good and bad. While I hated to have to leave my baby girl here for that long, the distance and separation just made me appreciate my gift even the more. Maybe so much that I might just be ready for another little gift…. 😉

Peace & Blessings,

Grace Saves Me

God loves me, Adores me, Watches over me, You are for me, Grace loves me and it’s not what I desire,
And nothing that I’ve earned, But daily grace saves me…

I love this song by Tasha Cobbs and the lyrics are more than fitting as I read the reports of the massacre in Orlando.  The story is sad no matter what way you look at it. Lives taken prematurely from a senseless act of violence. Although I don’t agree to or condone the lifestyle of those that were killed or injured, it is still extremely sad and no one deserves to die in this manner. I can’t even fathom the fear that ran through the minds of those that watched as others were slaughtered as they waited to see if they would be next. I have thoughts of wondering if those that were hiding or watching as the gunman came closer if in that moment they prayed, asked for forgiveness for their lifestyle and sins, accepted Jesus as their Savior…we will never know. All we can do at this point is pray for the families that were affected and hope that this incident would allow them draw closer to Christ.

86ad51a19484997034c9c1dd9b7b1bbd

I can’t help but reflect over how that could have easily been me just a few years ago. I was in and out of the club quite frequently and when I think about how God shielded and protected me even when I was deep in my sin and pulling further and further away from Him, all I can say is thank you Lord for your Grace and your mercy!!! I can think of the many times my friends and I stood and watched fights or even just was careless in not watching our surroundings while having a “good time”. What if He would have closed the book of my life in those moments? I was playing the role of a Christian, I looked the part on Sunday mornings, but during the week, among friends, covered that mask to blend in with the world. Doing whatever I wanted to have a good time, but what if? What if He didn’t love me, what if He didn’t bless me with that Grace, if He hadn’t shielded me with His hedge of protection, what if He didn’t save me when He did? I didn’t deserve it then and I don’t deserve it now but I am so, so, SO grateful, so, so, SO thankful that He didn’t forget me, that He continues to bless me with His grace daily even when I continue to fall short, continually letting Him down…God I thank you.

Today I commission you to do the same. Reflect back over your life and see just how merciful and gracious God has been over your life. Give thanks and praise to Him for the gift of grace. Repent where you have failed to do so, and pray for His continued favor upon your life and His hedge of protection. Submit to Him and remain within His will for your life. It is so worth it and so needed more than ever in the world that we live in now. I also commission you to pray for Orlando and our world in general. Pray that people will turn from their wicked ways and draw closer to Christ. He is able to save and wants to save their souls. Grace saved me, it saved you and can save them.

For no [a]person will be justified [freed of guilt and declared righteous] in His sight by [trying to do] the works of the Law. For through the Law we become conscious of sin [and the recognition of sin directs us toward repentance, but provides no remedy for sin]. But now the righteousness of God has been clearly revealed [independently and completely] apart from the Law, though it is [actually] confirmed by the Law and the [words and writings of the] Prophets. 22 This righteousness of God comes through faith in Jesus Christ for all those [Jew or Gentile] who believe [and trust in Him and acknowledge Him as God’s Son]. There is no distinction, 23 since all have sinned and continually fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are being justified [declared free of the guilt of sin, made acceptable to God, and granted eternal life] as a gift by His [precious, undeserved] [b]grace, through the redemption [the payment for our sin] which is [provided] in Christ Jesus, – Romans 3: 20-24 AMP

Passion Into Purpose

passionWriting is my passion. Encouraging and uplifting women…my passion. Put the two together and now my passion is working towards my purpose.

When we first started this blog, I looked at it more so like a group project, something fun to do with my girls collectively. As months passed I found that my excitement and interest peaked and I couldn’t wait to develop more material. Open up and be transparent if you will, allowing my story to encourage the hearts of others. Now here we are a year later and that passion is even deeper and more heart felt. This feels like home for me. Day in and out I’m looking for real life situations that I can share with our readers that has purpose behind it. Gone are the days of just writing something to check my blog post off of my to do list. Now is the time to choose my words carefully, ask the Lord to reveal something new through me, making my posts more like ministry. My prayer is that I can reach just one person with each post. I may never talk to or meet that person, but to know that I helped someone in an area they struggle in or encouraged someone’s heart right when they needed something to uplift their spirits, it makes it all worth while. Once I hit the publish button it is out of my hands. I’ve released that which the Lord placed on my heart and at that point He takes control and does the rest.

I have the desire for this platform to do so much! Come on…4 women working together and it be effective? Man the impact that we can make. As much drama as women keep (generally speaking), especially in a group, but we can come together pushing a positive message all while drawing women closer to Christ just from a few shared words per week. I know that we all have so much to share, but we have to reach deep down to pull the words out to make it all worth while. There has to be passion behind our words, and as the quote says, we have to first be interested and then remain interested in the core reason that we started the blog in the first place. Four different women, four different or unique stories, all serving the same purpose…to encourage our fellow girlfriends. And I apologize if I come off as frustrated, but when you are truly passionate about something and its not going in the direction you would like, that tends to happen.There is more work to be done. So much more to tell. Women deal with so much on a daily basis and this could be a much needed outlet for them.  But not only for them, for us as well. This has become somewhat of a source of therapy for me. Its making me face my fears as well as showing me my strengths, weaknesses and my continued growth. When I look back on old posts and see how far I have really come, how the Lord carried me through so many different situations, it truly amazes me. I think I shocked myself at how transparent I am at times, but its needed. Real recognizes real and at this point I don’t really care anymore. Why? Because its my passion, no excuse me its my purpose, and I love the fact that my insecurities, my down falls, my hiccups and mistakes can save someone else from going down the same path all while showing them how I got through it all!

So what’s your passion? What drives you? What stays on your mind constantly and you aren’t satisfied until the job is done? I encourage you to pin point that thing and then work it! Not only for your good, but for the good of others! Allow the Lord to lead and develop you in that passion so much so that you now turn that passion into purpose. Its such a beautiful thing and after all that’s why are are all still here on this earth…to fulfill our God-given purpose.

For it is [not your strength, but it is] [a]God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure. – Philippians 2:13 AMP

Time Out

Flag on the play….whistle blows….30 second time out. That’s normally what happens in a basketball game when the players need a minute to regroup or get directions on the next play from their coach. I hope I got that right, if not I hope you get the point! I’m such a girl! HA!

Anyway back to my story…the way my life is currently set up I’m always doing something, thinking about what needs to be done or at the last minute remember something that I forgot to do. Sometimes it can feel like life is so mundane and so repetitive…work, home, church, grocery store…repeat…day in and day out. To be honest sometimes it gets boring doing the same thing over and over and over again. I needed a break, I wanted to do something fun where I could just relax, laugh and be KT. I didn’t want to think about my long to do list, I just wanted to be me without a care in the world. So it was time to throw a “flag on the play” and take a much needed time out!

basketball-885786_1920

1st 30 second time out…The Bimbe Festival. My sister suggested that we go because it was 1 a free event, 2 one of our favorite groups 112 was going to be there, and 3 one of our friends could get us back stage to meet them! Okay so of course at first I was all for it. I deserved this break, okay cool let’s go. Oh no the threat of rain, second thought I’ll sit this one out. I have laundry to do LOL! (true story lol) Although I was saying that out of my mouth, in my mind I was praying the Lord would hold the rain so I could enjoy some much needed girl time with my sister! And guess what He did just that! Not only did he hold it off until the last 30 minutes of the festival, but upon our departure there was the most beautiful rainbow I have ever seen!! (God’s Promise) It made the day all the more worth it! I hadn’t had that much fun in a VERY long time! I laughed, danced and felt like Katesha again. It was just what The Doctor ordered! Bimbe

2nd 30 second time out…Date Night with Hubby. Okay so I had some girl time, now its time for some one on one fun with my main squeeze! Its crazy to me how my hubby and I are so in sync! I was thinking that we needed some alone time and before I could suggest it he called me and said “Hey let’s hang out on Saturday”. All I could do was smile, I love that dude so much! We did something we use to enjoy doing when we were still courting…putt putt golf! And you know your girl won right!!! HA! It was good to laugh, joke and enjoy each other (with a little PDA) without any interruptions. I was (well we both were) of how important it is to take those breaks from family business and nurture our marriage.Golf

Last time out (this game)…Sesame Street Live: Let’s Dance. Now you know I had to include a time out with my Sweet Pea! She has watched Elmo and friends since she was a baby and every time they come to town we miss them! Not this time! This past weekend we went to see them and we had a blast! We had GREAT seats, club level leather seats included. I didn’t know that was the section I had selected, I just chose that level because of the price and because it was centrally located in relation to the stage. Those seats couldn’t have been any more perfect! We were the only people in the section, there was plenty of space, and therefore no interruptions. Hubby, Sweet Pea and I had the best time ever!!! And again I have to thank my Daddy for making sure we had that experience. I don’t count it as a coincidence we were in those seats ya’ll, He did that!!!Sesame Street

So why am I sharing all of this with you today? I want to encourage you to take a time out girlfriend! You deserve a break every now and then. Step away for your responsibilities for a second (not too long though lol). Go out have some fun, let your hair down, breath a little, laugh, dance, laugh some more! There is so much to enjoy in life, we just have to make that extra effort to do it!

Peace & Blessings,

Faith Restored

“Mommy my room, my room!!! I love my room!!!!” Sweet Pea shouted with excitement as we walked through an open house and she walked into a little girl’s bedroom. The walls were painted yellow, little girl’s toddler bed, bookshelf, toys, closet full of clothes. I stood there with Sweet Pea and watched her with tears in my eyes thinking one day soon baby girl, one day soon…

To be honest my faith has been shaken, I was starting to believe that the dream of home ownership was just that a dream. Thoughts of doubt made me to believe we’d never make it there. Yes debt is being paid off, but after the excitement of paying off one the burden of how we will pay for the next take over my mind. I see God moving in others lives but feel as though I’m stuck in a never ending cycle. One minute believing this is our year, its getting ready to happen for us and the next back into despair and doubt feeling it will never come to pass.

Then it happened, a peek into my future through the eyes and excitement of my 4 year old…my faith had been restored. She didn’t understand that this was just “practice”, we were only there to walk through and get ideas, or were we? Was this what my hubby and I needed to do in order to rekindle the flame of faith in our hearts? We often look at houses online, but this was much different. We were standing in the house this time, we could see ourselves dwelling there. It felt so, so good. I wanted to squeal like Sweet Pea and yell “My house, my house, this is my house” but held my composure lol However internally my soul was leaping for joy. This can happen for us, this will happen for us, home ownership will be ours!

Today I want to leave you with that little bit of encouragement. Stop focusing on what is in front of you and hang on to that which you can’t physically see but believe in your heart. “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 (NKJV) Forget your current circumstances and remember that they are only there for a season. Put your focus back on what matters most your faith in The One that holds all power in His hands. There is NOTHING too hard for God. We serve the omnipotent God, the creator of all things. He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we could ever ask or think. We just have to believe.

Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had, who wrote in Scripture, “I believed, therefore I spoke.” We also believe, therefore we also speak, ~ 2 Corinthians 4:13 AMP
