My Children

I choose to speak blessings on my children always.

For them I pour out of my heart, words that bless and will follow them when I cannot. A blessing that will crown their heads from their Father in heaven, who will never forsake them or speak curses on them; the father they deserve. He hears me cry out for their sake:

For my babies,

You are beautiful, not only on the outside, but mostly on the inside. The Lord blesses and keeps you, the Lord makes his face shine upon you and is gracious to you, the Lord turns His face toward you and gives you peace. You are strong, kind, a young lady and gentlemen with integrity, honest, you are a giver, not a taker, and so wise beyond your years! You are strong and courageous. You have no fear for the Lord is with you wherever you go. People know and love you because you are always available to speak words of encouragement to others, you build others up rather than tear them down. God’s favor is all over you as a shield. He covers you with His feathers. You are the head and not the tail, above only and never beneath, blessed in the city and in the country, long life you will have, you are a victor and never the victim, you are a lender and never a borrower. God has a plan for your life, good and not evil, with an expected end. You have so much more life to live and a life more abundantly coming. You belong to Jesus because I taught you the right way (Proberbs 22:6) and you were chosen, predestined, hand-picked by the Almighty for a greater purpose. (Ephesians1:11)

I am thankful for the opportunity to be your momma!

Thank you for the sunshine you bring into my life.

Love,

Yo bad mamma jamma

Tell Me

When the sun slowly chases the moon from the sky

And touches your face as you open your eyes

What are you thinking? Do you like what you see?

Is it all that you dreamed of or do you wish it was me?

I know that you did what you thought you should do

It was safe and secure so completely thought through

But you sacrificed passion and abandoned your dreams

Baby, was it all worth it or do you wish it was me?

Does each kiss seem closer to the first or the last?

Is the fire still ragin’ or has it burned down to ash?

Do the memories haunt you? Do they beg and they plead?

Are you satisfied baby or do you wish it was me?

Is the life that you’ve chosen free from regret?

Or is what might have been just too hard to forget?

Has the glitter all faded? Do you get what you need?

Are you satisfied baby or do you wish it was me?

Jesus never asked you to sit on His throne. Did He?

First of all let me prelude this blog with the fact that I AM a Christian. I do judge because it is human nature to do that. But my judgement is more like why would you wear your pajamas to Walmart? Aaaaand I do think all Child Molesters should be publicly beaten and then castrated without anaesthetic. But I would not, could not deny them forgiveness.

Now with that being said it’s really sad to me that some Christians feel a sense of entitlement to judge. Yes we have our bible we know what it says. But before we start beating ppl over the head with it maybe, just maybe, we should return to the gospel and read a little about the adulterous woman how the crowd was standing there with stones ready to hurl them at her and then consider for a moment what Jesus said and did. He knew he was about to sacrifice his life for that woman, for all of us because of sins such that required a gruesome death as ransom and he wouldve been the only one who was justified in stoning her yet…he loved her. He pardoned her. It is because of who Jesus was, that we all are able to receive eternal life. We are not entitled because of his sacrifice to then become Pharisees. We will only win them over by loving them and being the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus. So many times i hear Christians bashing homosexuals and adulterers. They both, along with various other sins of the flesh fall under the heading of sexual immorality. Is sexual immorality wrong? I Corinthians 6:9-10 read it for yourself and while you have your bible out head on over to Rev. 21:8. Have you lied today? Ever done illegal drugs? Gossiped? Taken the Lord’s name in vain? Put money before God? Put anything before God? Cheat on your spouse? Did you look at that woman/man lustfully? You may as well have cheated. Watched filthy movies that cause you to become one with the world? ie Magic Mike, Have you read 50 shades of grey? Et al Are you watching or looking at porn when no one else is around? We are all guilty of sinning. We are wretched, poor, pitiful without Jesus but with Him we are his righteousness. You may think your sins are secret, but God knows…so just remember you will be judged in the way that you judge others. Matt 7:2

I ask that God guard all our hearts and that we wake up and return to Christ’s teachings of love and forgiveness so that hearts are able to be touched and that we never let the devil have a foothold on our souls.

I will leave you with one last thought.

John 13:34-35

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” ;

James 4:12

“There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you–who are you to judge your neighbor?”

My sins nailed God, in the flesh, to the cross the same as yours. I am no better and no worse. Without God’s mercy and grace we would all be doomed to hell. I am pardoned only because of the sacrifice of God’s only son who I have accepted in baptism.

*********************

Psalm 16:8-11 “I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

Philippians 3:20 “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ”

ie: Christians are to keep their eyes on Jesus! So that their faith is not shaken. **This world is not our home.**

Peace

In every persons life a certain level of acceptance arrives; acceptance of who we are, of a life that was not exactly the dream come true we awaited, acceptance of what serves us and what does not. It is very liberating to open your hand, release your grasp and behold what falls to dust, what soars away and what remains. All that remains is what has chosen to take root. All the rest, while it appears you granted liberty, the chains separated in celebration of our own independence.

The sun will surely peak on the horizon with promises of new hope. Any soul who is destined to take part in that hope will catch up, this I know. Sometimes you have just take a deep breath and release all that you’re carrying.

Peace is in the knowing what was meant for you.

I will seek the peace that is my own.
