Has It Ever Cost You?

Have you ever come to a point in your walk with God where the decision that you knew the Holy Spirit was pointing you towards was the unpopular decision?

You’ve Gotta Give Some to Yourself

“Abigail, you need to forgive yourself.”

I began realizing that it wasn't just in my head, and I started asking:

"How do I forgive myself? What is it that I need to forgive myself for?"

I've come to realize that the reason why I find it easier to forgive others but struggle to forgive myself is due to the standard in which I hold myself to, knowing my potential in contrast to my choices, and trusting myself.

It is in our imperfections that our true beauty and strength lies.

The Power of Being Present

Picture being present with the Lord as that memorable scene from Beauty and the Beast. When Belle comes down the stairs in her beautiful yellow dress and all she and the Beast notice are each other. They lock eyes, and in every movement they make are in sync. The couple seems to have been in a world that is entirely their own. This scene is as close to what it means to be present with the Lord in Disney terms.

[…]Sitting in his presence is more fulfilling, peaceful, loving, and healing than anything the world and people will ever give you.

[…]There is power in being still. Being tranquil in the presence of God strengthens us because we are present with the rock that never moves; hence, we are unshakable. Being present with the Lord causes us to discern effectively and confidently. Being able to be present with the Lord allows us to heal and perceive life and people the way that the Lord does. To be present with Christ will enable us to add more color ( I adore art) and depth in our relationship with the one, our soul loves the most. There is life, growth, freedom, peace, and consistent peace when we a present with our Father.

To The One Who Wanted To Give Up

I…have...been...there and it sucks!

I wish I could perform a psychological surgery and remove this depressive mental state away. But...it doesn't work that way.

They have all sacrificed everything for me. Each person I have mentioned has laid down everything in hopes of seeing me and seeing me live this life to the fullest.

It was the reminder that my mother and father sacrificed their comfortable home in Ghana for my education, joy, and success. It was the reminder that my brother, though 9 years younger than me, looks up to me and wants to see me make it in everything I set my mind to. It was the reminder that all the beautiful humans that called me friend valued the genuine smile they initially fell in love with. It was the reminder on the day that she left this earth, the day my grandmother completed her mission, that I recalled that nothing, absolutely nothing, in this world would make her happier than to see me ( broken, hurting, and ratchet in all) living a life that is filled with joy and hope.

I..have...been...there.

The Evidence; It's Unfinished

It's not why we're going through but who we're going through with and what He's teaching us. He is with us in the hurricane and we couldn't be taken out; we persevere because He is with us.

How do you not know that the Creator of everything is real? The evidence is in the fact that you didn't die from your battle wounds. Those scars could've taken you out, but they didn't. That resiliency and drive to keep on running the race of life are from God.

The evidence is in the fact that you are alive and still kicking! He's not done with you because you are about to surprise yourself with the level of power, authority, love, and gumption (oh yes, I used that word) you have within you. Oh my dear, how magnificent you are and the best part…it's unfinished.
