Take Control 2

Every morning, I wake up between 4:50 am and 5:10 am. I open my eyes, and then give God thanks for another day. I get out of bed, put on slippers and a robe and head to “our place” the place in my home where I spend time with the Lord. I pray, listen to uplifting music, read the word and talk to God. As I go throughout my day, I hear something or see something that reminds me of where I was before I came to this place of peace and I smile. I smile because I am so grateful that I was able to break free.

I share this with you, because there was a time when although my mornings began almost the same, (minus the time spent with God), they ended with me dragging myself home after a day of complaining about my job, to prepare dinner, eat, wash dishes, grab a cup of tea, watch television and then go to bed only to wake up and do the same thing over again. Every day was the same, filled with complaints and discouragement. One morning, after waking up in tears, I heard in my spirit, “Do you want to be made whole?” and likewise in my spirit, I immediately understood the implication of the statement.

Stop It!

The other day, I was talking with my “village Mom”, for those of you who may be unfamiliar with the term, remember the old adage, ‘it takes a whole village?’ well, a “village Mom” is someone who although she’s not your mother, still has no problem helping or correcting you when necessary.  Anyway, I was […]

Standing Still

April 3, 2013

Stand Still.  I had to do that today.  I had to stand still and wait. That’s so difficult to do, but in some situations, it’s necessary because maybe, it’s the only thing to do.   Waiting is easy, we do it all the time, we wait in line at the grocery store, we wait in line […]

Shhhh, Pay Attention!

March 2, 2013

There are three mistakes one could make along the road to their destiny, not starting, not finishing, and not paying attention. Shhhh, pay attention! How many times have you heard that over the years? When you were a child, maybe your mom with a firm, stern look on her face, retorted it to you in […]

Who Are You?!

January 31, 2013

The day was December 31st, 2012.  The time was 11:59 pm and exactly one minute later, the clock struck 12 midnight.  You yelled “Happy New Year!” and began setting in motion the New Year’s resolutions you had been thinking about at least two months prior.  Now, here we are one month later, January 31. So, […]
