Make a U Turn

When we our driving down the road going in the wrong direction. We simply make U turn, a change in direction, to get us back on the correct pathway! Change of direction can bring us  back on the right pathway with  God’s  destiny  for our life!

Repent! Turn away, a change of direction from a life of sin. God did not say, make yourself clean and right before repenting! He did not say get the right clothes, the right language, the right relationships, or the right thought life!

He simple said Repent ( turn away from sin) TURN to Jesus!

Once our  car is heading in the right direction.  Even if our  car has old McDonald trash, dents in it, gum stuck to the floor, everything that is junk in our life! God will send us a helper called the Holy Spirit who will help us! He will clean up our life! He will help us stay on the right pathway!

The  Helper ( Holy Spirit) comes into our heart and begins to TRANSFORM it by filling us up with His words, God’s Spirit , His desires, and His thoughts!

Running on E

Oh God you are so Good!
My van was on E! Let me take that back, it was literally pass the E mark on my gas gauge! I loaded up all my kids, into my van and I said a prayer to make it to the gas station. However, half way down the street, I realized that I had forgotten my wallet!

Sighs...

I quickly turn back around and headed back home to grab my wallet at home . After finally making it to the gas station, I then remembered that the bank card I needed was in my coat pocket, at home !

Lord, I am heading back home once again on E!!!! I head back home, grab my bank card, and tell the kids to continue to press in prayers ! Pray we make it there or we are going to have to call Carlos Alfonso ( Carlos is a sweet friend that always is so helpful, he is a blessing to many) for a push if this vehicle shuts off! LOL😂

In the end we made it to the gas station and got a full tank of gas .

There are days when we feel like we can’t make it! We are tired and we feel like we are on E physically and men…

Calmness of being Still

Be STILL and know that He is God...

We live in a world were it’s go, go, go, go! It has to be done right now ! We have to give a reply back right now! We need to give a defense right now! We need an answer right now!!


But God is calling us to BE STILL! You see, when we purposely stop what we are doing. When we tune everything out that wants our immediate attention and wait on God. Then we can hear from God clearly.


One of my favorite verses to quote, that causes me to pause, be still,
and seek God’s direction, says this...


Philippians 4:6-7
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

When we allow our Spirit to be still, then We can clearly hear from God, the answers that we our seeking.


Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,

Should Christians celebrate Halloween

It won’t hurt you Eve, satan’s words to Eve in the garden. Satan then had her questioning God’s word with placing thoughts of doubt in her mind. It’s just one bite ...
Satan ultimate goal is to just get a crack into our lives through disobedience to the word of God.


1 Thessalonians 5:22 (AMP)
22 Abstain from every form of evil [withdraw and keep away from it].


If you can’t see Jesus walking around participating in it, then Christians, ( not talking to non Christians) . Christians that have a true relationship with Christ. ( not talking about the ones living any how, living in sin) but the ones that truly serve Him, need to serve Him in spirit and in truth .


Don’t allow they enemy to have free permission on your children. It is a spiritual warfare in which believers are in. Know the tricks of the enemy even when the come wrap up in candy!

You have the keys !

The KEYS, have been put in our hands to BIND and LOOSE! To pray God’s healing power to flow, over our household, and over our children!
When my oldest son was young he would stutter to the point of frustration. He could not make one sentence without stuttering. But God HEALED him!

He also had teachers that wanted to label him ADHD and recommended medicating him! But GOD proved them WRONG!!
They wanted him in a class for those with a learning disabilities! God led me to homeschooling him. Once again GOD PROVE them wrong!
When you have those Keys placed in your hands! Don’t take what the enemy throws your way! Pray, bind , loose, because God’s word always holds truth!


The blessing of health, healing, prosperity will be over our family! But we got to open up our mouth in Faith and tell the enemy BUT GOD can DO IT!!
Matthew 16:19 (AMP)
19 I will give you the keys (authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth [a]will ha…

Green Tomatoes

I am a mother and a wife, and my life is always busy. So very often my chats with God, are during those quick moments of silence.

I could be washing dishes, doing laundry or preparing a meal. It’s those moments I hear His whispers, because my spirit is silent.

Green Tomatoes !! Okay, God I have green tomatoes . Look again, and realize why they are not ripening as quickly as you like them too. I hear him gently whisper to my spirit.

My mother has a vegetable garden in her backyard which has green tomatoes and red tomatoes . Sometimes we pick the green tomatoes, and bring it inside and allow them to turn red from the sunlight . My mother then places her green tomatoes on her kitchen window shelf, where the sun can directly hit them.

Her tomatoes always ripen quickly. If those tomatoes are not in the direct sunlight they take awhile to turn red. Allot longer then being in the sun.

In this Christ life, God wants us mature like those red tomatoes! Ready to be eaten and used. He dose not want u…

My faith in Christ keeps me going

Yesterday was such a beautiful day for my children and I to take a nice walk at the park. We walked through the robust color tint of fall appearing pathway of trees and leaves. Our  dusty feet moving forward  to reach our final destination to the creek. Just like our faith in Christ, we keep moving forward and keep believing till we see God come through for us, till we reach our destination!


 The Bible is clear Jesus is so faithful to His word! What your believing for today He will come through, don’t lose faith, keep pressing forward!







Hebrews 11:1
[ By Faith We Understand ] Now faith is thesubstance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Turn up the heat Christianity

Cooked my husband eggplant curry yesterday, as I had my daily talk with God. I tried to cook pork loins but you could had throw my pork loins at someone and take them out!🤦🏽‍♀️ But that’s another story for another day ! Lol

Well, back to my delicious eggplant curry lol. Mixing the ingredients together. I would had just love to throw everything in the pot and been done! However, as we all know cooking takes time, and ingredients have to come together well cook. I can’t just throw everything in the pot, stir it together, and serve it as done! It’s going to need some heat and time to cook!

In life we go through those heated moments . Those moments were our faith is being tested and prove! Where trials take some time to go through. We either pass those moments our faith is tested or retake that test! If we want to grow in faith, we’re going to have to go through the heated process to come out done and complete!

Take a look at what the word of God says ...

James 1:2-4 (NKJV)

Baby#8 dedication

On a fun note blog post today, baby Joel had his dedication today. This is our 8th baby and such a blessing to have him dedicated to Christ! Another beautiful warrior for Jesus ❤️



Tell us about your baby dedication and share how you are raising your children in Christ.

Celebrating life seasons ...

I am forty years young, and a momma to now eight beautiful children. I just had baby number eight aka Joel, tens days ago. Oh how life goes by so quickly! Now I am a mom in my forties blessed to give birth to my sixth son and blessed with two daughters.

One thing I have learn, is that life passes you bye in seasons, as the changing of the colors of the leaves on the trees. Weather from hot to cold, warm to brittle cool, life goes by very swiftly!

Celebrate each day, as you never know when you will enter your new season of life! Embrace it, cherish it as the grace of God give to you to see that day!

The Bible is very clear...
There is a time and season for everything in life itself ! Enjoy this season!
Ecclesiastes 3 (NIV)A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to…

Be thankful

The Bible teaches that we are to do everything without grumbling and complaining ❤️ Find the little things to be thankful for in life, and keep a heart of gratitude ❤️

This morning, I am thankful for sleep❤️. Though it may not be much in the coming months. A little rest is what I am grateful for today and the life that God has blessed me with ❤️❤️🙏

What are you thankful for? No negative comments, no comments then rolling into “but”... Share what you are thankful for and fix your lips on praises❤️❤️


Philippians 2:12-16 (NIV)

Do Everything Without Grumbling

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”Then you will s…

God sees His greatest in You !

David is the greatest example of what God can do in your life! Don’t let others discredit you because they are stuck on the outward appearance!


1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

David knew that greater is He that was in him then he that is in the world! Goliath had no chance because David knew who he served!


1 John 4:4 (NKJV)
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world

To the world he look like a young man, unskilled, just a tender to sheep . However, to God, he was a man of Great faith! A man after His heart that knew there was no limits to what God can do, when He wants to do it!

Same for your life ! If God is before you, who can be against you? God opens the right doors that no man can shut! If …

Raising my children in Christ

What a blessing to be a mother and the opportunity to raise my children in Christ. Daily I am teaching my children that God has called us Christians to be the light in this world of darkness. To do good even in the midst of evil. To choose to serve God, even when family and friends choose to do otherwise.


We are in the last days here on earth and the returning of Christ Jesus draws near! I want to see my entire family, ready for His return. The Bible teaches we do not know the day or the hour but we do know the season. We are to stay ready!


Daily, as a family we dig in this word, and daily we renew our mind. If you have children keep sharing this gospel, keep praying for them ! God has a hold of their hearts.


Scripture reading for today...

Psalm 89:15-16  (NKJV)
15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
16 In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.

Worshiping God in Spirit

John 4:24
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Today was a lovely day to engage in bible study with my children. We talked about worshiping Christ in Spirit and in truth.

Truth that Jesus is God and in Spirit, a renew spirit in Christ and worshiping Him with our entire heart❤️ When you know that Jesus is the true and loving God and that He , and He alone died for your sins, you can’t help it but to worship Him with your entire being!

Have a Bless day in Christ, love Sis Rashida

A merry heart

Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.

A good word breaks the seal of depression. Driving around today and just site seeing and floods of overwhelming thoughts just ravished my heart!

I been here before, it seems like a past memory, one I am not wanting to relive . Emotions overwhelmed my souls as those old thoughts of doubt try to creep back in...


What if it never happens ?
Do you really think this is meant for you?
I quickly snapped myself out of the heaviness the anxiety can bring! The heaviness of depression, of overwhelming thoughts of will it ever end!

The Bible says a good word makes of Glad. A good word breaks down darkness and shines a light to illuminate what God’s word truly says...

Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.


All I had to do was remind myself of the word of God! God works all things for my good! And darkness…

How will you spend this day?

Psalm 118:24
This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.


Before my feet hit the warmth of my fuzzy grey carpet, this morning. I lay in bed, next to my soft body pillow, just thinking how great it is to open up my eyes, take a deep breath of fresh crisp air and just live !

Today, purposely take a moment to enjoy every second of the day, Christ has to bring to you! I tell you, it goes by so quickly! Just the other day it seems like I was a young and careless girl in my twenties, now I am a young and wiser woman in my forties( laughs).

God has gracelessly blessed each of us to see His mercy of a new day! How will you live out this day? Who will you choose to be a blessing to, to be a light in this world too?

God has blessed you to see another wonderful day in Christ Jesus! Choose to spend each of those days, wisely!

Have a Blessed Tuesday in Jesus! Love Sis Rashida

Relaxing in Christ

Oh thank You Jesus for a day of rest! I am always so thankful to get a break from work and just get to sit and do absolutely nothing!

We all need to take advantage of a day of resting. To sit and do nothing but relax! It allows are body to have down time to be refresh, and reenergize!

Remember God has put in existence a day of resting, that benefits us! Rest up!❤️

Genesis 2:2
And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.

The Blessings of God

And everything that you put your hands to SHALL prosper! These are the gracious words in the bible that can be found in, Psalms chapter 1.

   I have found that there are very few TEACHING churches ,but allot GET rich churches. Churches that teach less on the foundation of living for Christ and more about how to rub the magical genie in the bottle and make a wish! Churches that have forgotten the keys, that open up the blessings of Heaven, which is men and women who have a heart for Christ! A heart to see souls won over to Christ, the sick being healed, and the oppressed being set free!

 The bible clearly promises us, that if we "seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all His righteousness all things shall be added unto us". However, we must remember it comes with a condition, and that condition is to seek Christ FIRST!
(Matthew 6:33)!

  It is very sad, that we live in a generation that would rather seek after THINGS, than to have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Fath…

He will work it all out

As I take a look over my life and everything that has happen over these pass few years. I see how God work everything out for my good!

From getting a job the paid my rent in full.
Restoring my family!
Bringing new life in my womb!

God always turns bad situations unto something good for His glory. Whatever , your going through today. Remember this, God can take what the enemy meant for evil and work it out for the Good!

Will you trust in him today? He is faithful, and Just and never goes back on His word!


Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.


Isaiah 55:11
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

No longer a sinner!

Just a reminder❤️❤️ When Jesus laid down His life for, your sins... He said it is finished! Not partial, not half done, or hopefully done! He took all your sins on the cross!


Your no longer allowed to make the excuse, of I am just a sinner, because your not called a sinner no longer! Because Jesus said he took it all for you! Your only allowed to say...

(Psalm 103:12 (NIV)
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us. )

I was blood bought! Redeemed! A child of the most High God! Royality! Blessed and Highly favored ! Chosen by God! Once a sinner but saved by His grace!

Because who the son sets FREE is FREE indeed!

Walk in it❤️❤️

Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.




Have a Bless day, Love Sis Rashida🤗❤️

Christians and Abortions

As Christians one thing we know that THIS BODY is not our own! Do you not understand that one day we all will be held accountable for what we do, say, and how we live? Why would anyone think that they are their own as if they created themselves?

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 )NIV)
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

Christians don’t let the foolish wisdom of the world get you so blind that you start agreeing with their thinking. That you start justifying murder! Do you not know that before every baby is born, good circumstances or bad, God says it clearly here!

Psalm 139:13-14 (NKJV)
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;Marvelous are Your works,And that my soul knows very well.

When a life is taken, we forget that God himself is Always …

Help me to remember

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the mighty name of Jesus! Lord, I declare your words over my life! Help me to
Always remember them in the time of trouble ! Holy Spirit bring Your words back to remembrance to my heart .


Psalm 1:2-3 (NKJV)
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.


Lord, I will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water( your word). I will mediate on it Day and night! I will purposely seek you first daily, and everything, I put my hands to do will prosper because I make You first! You as Lord and the number one love of my life!


Thank You Jesus for Your unfailing Love, In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Forgiveness

Y’all!!! Jesus is wise! Follow His wisdom and God will always lead you down a path of peace ❤️

Matthew 6:15 (MSG)
14-15 “In prayer there is a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God, for instance, without also forgiving others. If you refuse to do your part, you cut yourself off from God’s part.

God Bless Sis Rashida

Keep satan out of your life

Nugget of wisdom... Did you know in the Bible when God’s people would turn from seeking Him for wisdom, guidances, directions and serve other gods. Disaster would come on them swiftly! Sickness, diseases, and captivity would soon follow! Note these following verses below...

Deuteronomy 30:15-20
15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess. 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cu…

Dealing with Petty People

Are you dealing with someone who is petty? Always trying to do evil and wrong towards you ? Here is how God says to handle it....

Romans 12:19-21 (NIV)
19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”says the Lord. 20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


The Bible goes on to say that you will heap hot coals on their head. I know what you are probably thinking, Yes !! Get em Lord 😂😂 But on the Contrary, hot coals represents the extreme feeling of remorse, shame , and guilt on how they have treated you !

Continue to do good, leave it in God’s hands. I know it’s not always easy. I been there, and been quick to respond in my flesh! However, whenever, I followed the wisdom of God, it always turn out in my favor.


The Bible says it so …

There is a Time and Season for Everything

There is a time and Season for everything in Life. Don’t get stuck, in a season, know when it’s time to let go and keep moving forward ❤️

Ecclesiastes 3

A Time for Everything

3 There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under the heavens:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,



a time for war and a time for peace.

Beauty for Ashes meaning to me

My blog is called Graced with beauty for ashes. I was driving and thinking about all the things I been through throughout the years and how God was gracious to bless me with eight Beautiful children , during those years!

Not everyone is called to be mother to many! Not everyone can be trusted to raise children in the right directions. I am so thankful for this great opportunity to be a mother to so many ! I don’t take that lightly because it is not an easy calling or shoes to walk in. However, but by God’s grace, I am able to do it every single day and would not want it any other way❤️

For all my struggles in life. I was blessed with many lives, to help raise up in Christ ❤️What an amazing privilege! ❤️

Living a Life with no regrets

No Regrets!!
If you do anything in this life decide to live! Do NOT spend another day living
hopeless, and worried! Be determined to live this life with every breathe God has given you!

April first Blessings

Good morning King Jesus 🥰Good morning FB family and friends ! It is the first day of April! Thanking God for waking us up this morning with a New Day of His mercies, grace, and blessings!

Today be determined, to seek God more❤️ Stay in prayer and in faith, and pick up your bible each day! Walking with God never lead anyone down the wrong path, but a path that leads to eternal life in Christ❤️❤️

John 10:10 (NKJV)
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️


Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Dog returning to vomit

I really don’t want to be known, for eating my own vomit 🤮...

Christians, Why is it that, when we are going through a tough time . Going through trials. Need an answer to a prayers, we stop living in sin and start living right ?

Every minute the church door is open, we are on the front pew, singing and praising God! But when our prayers get answered, we return back to the things we vomit up and eat it right back up again.



Proverbs 26:11

Like a dog that returns to his vomit

Is a fool who repeats his foolishness


Back to our old life style of sin! God looks as this in disgust and so should we. The Bible help illustrates the importance of living a life free of intentionally sin and describes how God views the return of old habits.


Instead of returning to our old stinky ways, keep God’s ways! You have tasted and seen the goodness of God. Stay living in obedience to His word❤️ 🙏

Have a bless day in Christ, Love Sis Rashida❤️

Can a Christian Cuss?

Did you know the Bible speaks about what comes out of our mouth?

James 3:9-10 (NIV)
9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

There comes a day that we as Christians and believers have to choose to serve the Lord with are entire body, spirit , and soul. God wants every part of our life surrender over to Christ not just part of it .

It’s like being in a relationship, are you going give someone just part of your life or commit it all??

Have a bless evening ...
Love Sis Rashida ❤️❤️

Christians and Domestic violence

God hates divorce have been the words repeatedly spoken to a women who is in an abusive relationship.





God does hate divorce, but this scripture is given to A CHRISTIAN marriage, one were both spouses are serving the Lord. For when a husband and wife serve the Lord, than they can truly understand the covenant of a marriage. Let us take a look at this verse.

1 Corinthians 7:15 (NKJV)
15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such case. But God has called us to peace.

Here we can see that the bible tells us if an unbelieving spouse wants to leave to let them go. God knows that it is very difficult to live with someone who does not believe in Him and will not obey His voice. If you read further it also states, that God has called us to live in PEACE!

Their have been so many women who have been killed in an abusive relationship; because they were told by well meaning friends, that God hates divorce! These women are told that they should …

Dealing with insecure people

The saddest thing is life is to see someone constantly trying to see you fall, simple just because their of insecurities and Jealously ! I really do feel sorry for them. What a waste of life to always live to do wicked, and evil . To constantly listen to the devil and do evil...


Proverbs 3:29-30 (NKJV)
29 Do not devise evil against your neighbor,
For he dwells by you for safety’s sake.
30 Do not strive with a man without cause,
If he has done you no harm.


Be very careful what you do to others, especially a Christian! If your always trying to set people up to fall! If your doing things on the sly to them, out of spite and just being hateful. God doesn’t leave His children in the dark! We know exactly who is coming against us, BUT we choose to PRAY for you instead of returning evil for evil😘💋


Proverbs 26:27
If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead.



Genesis 12:3 (NKJV)
3 I will bless those who bless you,
And…

Live, Laugh, Smile More!

My Giggle for today...




The Bible tells us a Joyful heart is good as medicine. Learn to smile more! Laugh more! Enjoy life !

Proverbs 17:22
A joyful heart is good medicine,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones.

If your constantly living in sorrow, murmuring and complaining, this is not the life God called you to live . You won’t live very long, living this way!
The Bible also makes it very clear here...

John 10:10 (AMP)
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].

So today Laugh, smile and live this life God has Blessed you with!
Have a great morning love Sis Rashida ❤️


Restless?

There is a scripture that says, in Proverbs 3:24
“When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.”

For the past few days, I have been listening to a rain and thunder sound app on my iPhone . I love falling asleep listening to a heavy thunderstorm, and rain. The crackling of the lighting, dancing across the midnight sky, and the sounds of the rain pouring down on the rooftop, as if a thousand horses were racing across the roof, is relaxing to my soul. It always seems to be able ease me into a gentle sleep.

The only problem I have had, is that I would constantly wake up to the sounds, and then slowly drift off back to sleep. Don’t get me wrong! I enjoy every moment of a good, ole pour down of rain, and cracking whips of thunder, but with work in the morning. I like to stay asleep.

One night I decided to put on one of my favorite pastors. I placed my iPhone on top of my dark chocolate ottoman, and then allowed the sound of preaching, to played happily…

Moving forward...

You can not move forward in life by living in the past. As I was walking home from work tonight it was pretty chilly outside. I had forgotten my jacket at home and knew it would be another brisk walk home.

As each foot steps, were placed in front of each one another. I was getting closer and closer to my nice warm home . This is just like life, walking backward will never get you to the place of peace and comfort you are seeking, will only cause you to trip and get stuck in misery!

We were not design to hold onto pass hurts ! We were not designed to relive over and over the things that hurt us in the past. We were design to keep moving forward!


Philippians 3:13
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,

Today, if you living in the past, if your constantly replying things that were said and done to you that have hurt you. Let it go and start moving forward again. The …
