God 1st I thank you for the many blessings that you've given us.
I ask that you comfort all those who are in pain: physical, emotional and psychological. I ask that you heal the broken hearts that are in mourning, there are lots of us who are trying to heal from losing loved ones. Whether it's the death of a loved one, or any kind of severed relationship.
God we love you and we trust you. Show us that even when we feel lonely, that as long as we have you, we'll never be alone.
Praying for all of those affected by the natural storms that have destroyed homes and torn apart families.
God we'll be ever mindful to give you the praise, glory and honor.
In Jesus name,
Forgiveness is freeing!
Not only forgiving someone, but seeking forgiveness from a genuine place is amazingly mind blowing!
In my journey of learning to forgive others, I'm learning that I also have to take ownership of my wrongs and seek forgiveness.
The greatest gift you can ever give yourself is forgiveness.
Learn that's it's okay to admit that you're not perfect.
Once you seek forgiveness from God and others, forgive yourself!

My heart aches this morning for everyone who's lost someone recently, or just now coming to terms the loss of their loved ones. Broken hearts do heal, just not quickly.
No matter how well someone means, telling someone to move on, or get over it, DOES NOT HELP!

I hated when Daddy hit mommy. When he drank, he became an absolute monster. Someone I didn't recognize. Nothing like the sweet doting father and Pastor he allowed everyone else to see. Like right now. I could hear them arguing. Their voices escalating. The same argument every time.
“Look, I worked a twelve hour shift today and I don't feel like having this conversation, Earl. Take your drunk behind to bed!”
“Oh so you're just going to throw your job in my face huh? Like I don't want to work?!”
“God, I wish you would stop with this woe is me crap. I've had it up to here with your self-pity. God spared your life in that car accident but all you can do is talk about what you can't do anymore. “
About a year ago, Daddy and mommy had been on their way to a church banquet in Arlington when a truck had run a red light and not only hit but totaled their car. They'd both survived but Daddy’s hand had been pinned in the driver’s side door and it hadn't been the same since. He couldn't work because it was his dominant hand that had been smashed. And he blamed mommy for what happened. He blamed her for everything. I thought it was so unfair.
“You wanna repeat that Patrice?” I heard Daddy say. I could tell he was about to snap.
I heard her sigh, like she was just tired of this merry go round. “Nothing…just nothing.”
“Say it again!” He roared at her and I jumped. My heart began beating frantically and my palms began to sweat. God please don't let hit mommy! I prayed. I prayed hard because once he unleashed his wrath on her, I would be next. I heard his big feet move and then my mother yelped. Then I heard her scream as he pushed her into the door.
“I hate when you spew that God spared me crap!” Slap.
“Stop Earl!” Mommy screamed
“I’ll stop when I'm good and ready! You don't run me! I'm the man of this house, not you!” Daddy bellowed. Slap. Soon after I heard the doorknob being turned and I hightailed it up to my room and locked myself in my closet. Putting my hands over my ears, I prayed again. “Please God. Don't let him hurt me. I’ll be a good girl. I promise."
For the entire month of June, I posted 30 positive affirmations about myself. My main purpose was to remind myself of my good qualities. When I started this project, I never imagined that not only would it inspire me to do more... but, that it would touch the lives of so many others. To my great and pleasant surprise, it did.
To know that I helped someone else, makes this project even more worth while. So here are the #30DaysofPositiveAffirmations
Remember when I said that I was inspired to do more? Well, I'm doing just that! Coming soon, 365 Days Of Positive Affirmations: A Daily Journal of Self Love.
I am extremely excited! Coming Winter 2016.
Yes, it's me! Welcome, stay awhile!
