Psalm 23:4

For 20 years I walked through life in darkness because I chose to. I didn’t fully embrace faith and God. I would tippy toe into faith when I needed it, and only when I needed it. I’ve now learned I have to embrace my faith daily. Whether I am on good times or bad times my faith is stronger today because I have tried living life on my own and it has brought me to the darkest places. Now the light shines daily. Even when times get tough and the darkness looks near my faith in God let’s the light shine. My Higher Power teaches me to look for good even in the worst situations. I am confident that I can overcome the darkness and evil with my faith. I am so blessed for a second chance. 751 days strong 💪

Striving to become a better version of myself!

James 5:16

When I was younger and ignorant I would pray for God to give me things. Give me money give me success give me health and a new body. It was all about giving to ME. What a selfish way to pray. Now I have let go of fox hole prayers. Now I pray selflessly thanking God for giving me another day at life another opportunity to grow and learn. I ask God that he gives me the wisdom, empathy, love, and fortitude I need to go about day helping others by first helping myself.

John 13:14

This passage taught me that in order to gain respect you have to show positive actions. What I say and what I do should be symbiotic, and less hypocritical. Washing the feet of others humbles me to The Lord. It proves nothing is beneath me in this world and I do it with love and Gods Will, no my will.

Successful leaders lead from the front. They also lead by example. I ask God Daily to help me lead from the front not the back, and lead with love not hate.

Psalm 94:19

My anxiety, like for many, stems from fear. Fear drove me to not accomplish a plethora of things in life. Now I replace fear with faith. When I’m anxious, depressed, sad, joyful, or content I pray. I pray for more faith and less fear to continue on this journey. May we all have a great week with more faith and less fear!

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

God comforts us so we can go out and spread The Lords love to everyone we encounter today. In Jesus name Amen!

Striving to become a better version of myself!

Psalm 139:23-24

The old me would say why me? Or Poor me!

Every time God tested me I ran and hid. I didn’t realize that God was testing me to build a stronger version of myself! Now when I am tested self-pity and self-sabotage are a thing of the past. I may not pass every test that is put in front of me, but I try to learn from each experience. Testing me has strengthened my character and faith in my Higher Power. Ultimately when tested if you “fail” fail forward and have faith that God is with you!

Ephesians 6:11

“Putting on God’s armor daily”

My armor consist of love, prayer, & meditation!

Everyday I put on the full armor of God to live a healthier life in 3 aspects of my life. Physical, mental, and spiritual health. I have to fix myself before I can fix others and denounce evil.
