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, but he wasn’t God. There was only one God. Y’all don’t even know how embarrassed and ashamed and heartbroken I am to have once felt this way about my Lord and Savior, but I did and I needed to in order to reaffirm my faith solidly and to save other people.

So after I gave my views, my friend said well I know he is God. End of conversation.

That right there is a point. Don’t let anyone, I mean, not one person come and shake your views on our God. The devil had me and was using me for his agenda. He loves slipping into the cracks. And when he does, you got to stop him dead in his tracks, like she stopped me.

Okay, so fast forward back to where we are now. She is going through a difficult time.

Of course me being an encourager and uplifter, I began pouring. She said when it rains, it pours. I said it sure does, rain initiates your harvest season so make sure you are sowing as much as you can so the reaping season will be plenty. Keep your eyes focused on God, not your circumstances. In her reply, she said “God is my keeper”. I was so moved by that I told her make a list of what HE IS…line by line. I was encouraged to make one too.

After making my list, I was so happy. All I could do was smile. It’s amazing how much joy recognizing God and his goodness can bring you. Even a part of me felt like my list wasn’t long enough and it wasn’t. He is so much more than my entire vocabulary. I could never make a complete list. Most importantly God revealed that my list could and would change daily so don’t get concerned about the length of the list, it’s growing and changing.

I want to encourage my readers to make a “HE IS” list of who God is to you. I would love to see yours.

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

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
