One Argument


Lord, as you can see, I'm pressed on all sides. I'm just trying to avoid the drama and it keeps following me. He keeps wanting to fight with me. I know its an attempt to get me out of here. And I want to be gone. But it's not all about what I want. We have a daughter. I sacrifice everyday to keep  my family together in spite of what I feel.

God, please, I want for you to do what you do best and continue to comfort me and prepare me in this battle. God, yes this is my weakness. Not that I am weak for him, that's over with, but as in this really is getting to me. Yes, this is my weak spot. Granted, I knew something was up with how he questioned me and I stayed quiet, nonchalant, and distracted to just be out of it. But that didn't work. It just turned into something, as usual.

It's so crazy how he sees me. I question if it is true. But we are working on me, and I KNOW it isn't true. You know me best! You made me! Father, I ask that any fault that I have - Fix it. I deny myself, Lord. I ask that you make my heart clean, really make it clean. So clean that I don't want any harm done to him or anything bad to be done to him.

Lord, have favor upon me. In your due time and season God, may my enemy see how I make it out. You are the only way. You are the only way! I don't know what to do. What should I do? Should I go to my brothers? Start studying for the test to go to work? Go back to an office job? I just don't know.

God, I need your divine protection. I'm not sure what he's capable of. I don't know if he's capable of harming me as he continues to get stirred up or what. I don't know if he is capable of harming our daughter. I don't know what demons he has or are here, but Jesus have your way here. Protect me. I'm in a fire God, it's getting hot. I'm up against the wall. Please help me. Please walk with me. I trust you Lord but I also need to ask you for these things. I know you love me enough to grant them.

You are protecting me even when I do not see it. Lord, the battle is not mine, it's yours. I'm so excited for the other side of this even though I'm pretty low. I have no money, no home of my own, and the most heartbreaking is that I have a precious life that needs me and is relying on me. Have I failed her, and myself, by trying to be home. Creating a home. Being a home-maker.

I know what I did to get here, but I've been washed. God, I believe you gave me a new name. When you erased my past, my fornication went along with it Father. I'M FREE!!!!!! So Devil, you ain't gone use my past against me. I AM A NEW PERSON. I'M FREE!

Oh wow, I believe I wrote this in my journal right in the midst of this argument. Writing God is where I find my peace. This piece is definitely filled with pure and raw emotion. Shoot, sometimes, it don't even make sense. But God knows what you are talking about. Heck,  most times emotions make things confusing. I pray that you were able to follow along and find some understanding. I pray for anyone that is going through something similar. Keep pressing. Keep praying. Keep pushing. It will get better!

I love you with the love of Jesus Christ!

Call Your Mom!

I spent years keeping my mom distant, never letting her get too close. I didn’t trust her. I couldn’t trust her. There was too much hurt and pain. I shut down on her years ago. I went through so much and I needed her. She wasn’t there the way I needed her. Fast forward to being pregnant with my daughter and I realized how much I wanted to have an awesome relationship with her. Compensating for what my mother and I didn’t have. Then it hit me. How can my daughter have what she doesn’t see? How can she know how to open up to me and trust me if she doesn’t see it with me and my mom? Everything we do, even the things we don’t notice, are being recorded by these little sponges. It was at that moment, I chose to change the dynamics of my relationship with my mom. Let me be clear. Did my mom change for me to change? No! Nope, she didn’t! But God changed me. God changed my views of her. God healed my hurting places, my wounds from her, and filled them with other sentiments like love, honor, an

He Is...

The other day my friend and I were talking and she was going through her own trials that seem to have her down. She said she couldn’t sleep and couldn’t stop crying. It seemed like everything was getting her at once and she could only take it one day at a time. Let me give you some history on my friend, a little back story. We met in a time where I was uncertain about where I was with God. I knew God, and prayed to God, but I had cut Jesus out of my life. Remember in one of my previous journals I mentioned how I believed the hype that worshipping Jesus was idol worshipping and it was a sin. Because after all, idol worshipping was breaking one of the commandments. Yeah, someone whom never cracked open the Bible at least knew the basics right? WRONG! Well anyway, she and I had gone on a dinner date to Baltimore and on the drive home, we began talking about Jesus and I asked who Jesus was to her. She said God. I said how I felt Jesus wasn’t God. He may be real, he may have existed, bu

Co-parenting Woes

So God you know how I’ve been feeling towards my daughter’s dad and his fathering. This week I realized that it’s okay if he stays away because You got us. I started to really feel like she would be okay without him because she has You. This plays into my insecurities with my dad that I do not want to impose on her. Since he found out about my minivan and the argument that followed where I told him it wasn’t any of his concern, he hasn’t been talking to me. It’s funny because I’m finally standing up for myself and I’m not the same Jas he could control when we were together. He is not only not speaking to me, but he isn’t talking to our daughter either. He doesn’t call her. I only call him when she asks for him and he doesn’t answer.  Now me being a mom where I didn’t want to be like other moms who keep their kids from their father, I’ve been friendly to him because I thought we could be cool and co-parent effectively. I’ve given him non-restricted access to her. It’s crazy because
