Bold Surrender : The End of Me & Beginning of Him

"I love you. I have and will always love you. You are never going to be enough when it comes to the battles that have been set before you. Your abilities are minuscule in comparison to your obstacles and my power. But darling, I love you so much. I'm madly obsessed with your crazy self, and this love isn't going anywhere! I will fight these battles for you. I have armies among armies geared up and ready to slay your enemies. You just need to sit yourself down and trust me. Understand that at the end of you, darling, that's when I begin. I've got this child. So let me do what I do best, and you do what I've been training you to do: trust me."

You are not enough for this life you've been called to live.

Keeping still in the middle of a storm when everyone is packing up and making moves doesn't make sense. […]you're faith, decisions, and life wouldn't make sense.

[…]the beauty of the moments when our lives feel like they have been thrown into the fire is where we focus our eyes on who we're with. […] there is no way you and I can seek the face of God and please the Lord without faith. Works are the fruit of faith

Is My Jesus That Different?

I've been asking God, "if we're all believers of Christ and we all love you, then why are we struggling to fellowship together?"

why do other believers pull away from my joyful and passionate self? Is my perspective demeaning to others and their faith?

I don’t think that being unequally yoked is as black and white as we make it seem. I used to see this phrase as “do not get in an intimate relationship with those who aren’t believers.” But it’s deeper than that just like everything is when it comes to Christ.

Bonus #8: Do their actions and words match up with the two important messages of the Word of God?

The Pain That Became My Superpower

He did what he did to me. He did what he did to my psyche. He did what he did to my emotions. He did what he did to...my body.

[…]Be honest and kind to yourself. No matter who hurt you or what has happened to you, please take care of the experience and gather those lessons. Face your pain head-on. You may be like me, who had to let my family, friends, and counselors in my healing process. It's alright.

Do not (I'm dead serious) be the person who purposefully takes advantage of people emotionally, psychologically, or physically. There is no way this matches up with the Word and will of God.

Don't just be a kind human, be a loving human too. Be a considerate being. Acknowledge others in what you do just as you do for yourself. Don't initially be the reason why someone has pain in their lives. Be the person who builds others up and shows them that they are loved because God deems them worthy of His love.

Plot Twist: I'm Dating!

Guys, I have a problem!

Oh my goodness, this is wild. I think this post is about to be an intervention for me because I have to share with you all this problem that I have…

I cannot stop dating!

[…]"be careful with who you get in bed with." I typically associated this saying to whoever wanted to be my boyfriend but it goes beyond that. The adage applies to our friendships too.

[…]Forgiveness says, "hey, I'm acknowledging that you messed up, but I care too much about you and what we have that I'm willing to take this experience and make our relationship better." Love says, " I will choose you in every lifetime because the real you is who I want to have in my life."

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.

Child, Remember Your Training

Spiritual training is pretty similar to the conditioning I had as an athlete. In order to make your training effective, you must be willing to sacrifice your time and pleasure for the game. This means more prayer, devotionals, fellowshipping, and anything your soul requires for you to do.

As you begin to prioritize your healing process and your self-love, you allow the power of truth, confidence, and joy back into your life. But the truth is meant to share. Confidence is meant to be displayed. Joy is meant to be given away. As you work your spiritual and mental muscles to overcome the mental stage that is hurting you, you begin to acquire new weapons for the battles you may face.

When I felt low, when you felt stuck mentally or spiritually, I began to remove anything and everything that was causing me pain. I had to clear out the virus by applying a vaccination called Jesus.
