What Do You Say.....?

This year has been a season of change, growth and personal reflection. I have learned a lot about this life and the Life. My life has evolved and changed in just a few months, and I am thankful that the Lord has placed me on this journey. My challenge is to make sure that I learn all that is before me and to use it to propel me to my destiny.

I realized that I am not alone as I walk in purpose and look forward to seeing the manifested dreams that He has placed within each one of us. Along this path, I have had to let go of some things that were not conducive to me becoming all that the Lord would have me to be. I have shed some baggage that has held me back, slowed me down and hindered my progress. I refuse to see the negative as a blockade, but will use it to help me rise a little higher. That stumbling block will be my stepping stone.

I am so thankful to every person who has logged on this blog and has encouraged me to do what I do. As you read my thoughts and inspirations from the Lord, I constantly ask Him to deposit in me words of Life and liberty. I am often amazed at what is written as well.

It is truly a wonderful experience to read testimonies, stories and word of life from each one of you. I know that many of you have had trials that would have taken the average person out, but you overcame and your faith was so strong that you did not stagger at the promise in unbelief.

I applaud each one of you for your courage, honor and strength to be transparent. I am grateful that you are supportive of me and encouraging me to go on. I appreciate your words of life and the love I feel when I read your comments and thoughts on how to make this blog better. I Thank you for being my sister, friend, and confidant in the Lord.

I am like a child who has been reminded:

What Do YOU say......?


There are many ways to do something for someone else as a way of showing your gratitude for all that the Lord has given unto you.

This Thanksgiving Holiday, say thank you with a sincere heart. Tell others why you are thankful for them. Say Thank you to the bank teller, the cashier and the paperboy. Do something that shows your thanks to someone outside of your immediate circle of family and friends. Bake a cake for your neighbor, write a thank you note to someone who has blessed or helped you, visit the hospital or homeless shelter and give your time, just to say thank you.

Keep Walking and Much Thanksgiving LOVE!

1 John 5:4 ~~ For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

I am an overcomer. I'll say it again, I AM AN OVERCOMER!

When I became a child of Christ, I wanted to be sold out to him and desperately wanted to be more like Him, yet I found that I had some huge obstacles to overcome. Namely myself. I couldn't forgive me. I wouldn't forgive me. I couldn't understand why He wanted to love me.

One of the hardest things that I struggled with was letting go of my past and moving closer to Jesus and the pardoning of my sins; putting the baggage on the curb and driving away, without looking back. Yes, my past is there but only to remind me that there God is so forgiving and so loving that He would allow me an opportunity to be called His.

I had to overcome some things that only I held on to. I had to release all the hurt and unforgiveness and embrace Jesus more and more. I had to see myself in a whole new light and become more positive in my outlook on things. I had to let a lot of people be themselves but I also have to be me.

The Lord promises me that when I became born of HIM that I had victory. Automatically, Immediately and definitely. I had to really activate some so Great Faith and believe truly that He had thrown all of that mess in the trash. He says that as far as the east is from the west, that is how far he has removed our transgressions from us. Hallelujah!

If God, who so loved the world, forgives me, who am I to argue? I forgive me too. I didn't forget, but I do forgive. I remember that He is in control of my life and has given me peace that passes all understanding. I can rest in Him and wait for His guidance and direction.

Overcoming an issue is like putting down a bag of rocks. When the weight of the issue is let go, you realize the freedom. You realize how heavy the bag was. And you dare not pick it up again. Finally, you can walk in Faith, with those Heels on.

This week, start putting down some of those bags, drive away from the curb and don't you dare look back.

Keep Walking,

Love Covers

Love covers a multitude of sins.
(And plenty other things too.)

It was Love that took on all of our sins, died on a cross and rose that we might not feel the sting of death. It was Love that took all of our mess and threw it in the lake of forgetfulness, never to be replayed or rehashed at random. It was Love that showed Himself strong against the temptation of the enemy as an example to us that we may also resist temptation. It is Love that looks waaaayyyyy past all our faults and saw all of our needs. It is Love blessing us. It is Love showing us the way to love someone else. It is Love covering us.

This is a huge challenge for all of God's people; to be the first to give Love and to use Love as a blanket to cover our brothers and sisters. Sometimes things hurt us so badly that it is hard to see past the initial hurt and see the Love, but it is there. Sometimes you have to look way deep down inside to see the it, but it is there. I have experienced times where I have not been so forgiving or loving because of the pain. But Love still covered me.

I thank God that He is so forgiving and forgetting when it comes to areas where I may fall short. Sometimes I forget how much He has forgiven me. However, He usually gently reminds me, "But for the grace of God, there go I."

I am learning that it is through my Faith in Christ that I have been forgiven, that grace abounds for each of us and that I must used all of my words in wisdom to be a blessing to you. I must cover you because I am being covered. Now I am not talking about hiding sin or allowing it to run rampant. Trust me, if you need correction, correction you will receive. But I am talking about non-sin issues, issues of everyday life, those things that are not unto death. I am talking about having each others back, especially when we are falling short or have some shortcomings; encouraging each other to move forward, press on, to try harder and to be better.

From this point on, I must remember to remember all that He has done for me. I must extend to my brothers and sisters the same grace that God has given me. I must extend my hand to help and not use my words to hurt. My opportunity comes everyday when I wake up. "Brand new mercies I see, Great is His Faithfulness, unto me."

Sisters, take some time and remember to forgive: the hurts, the pain, the hard times, the lies, the discouragement, etc. Chose to celebrate, congratulate, and participate in the lives of others.

Love is always covering us, even when we forget to cover each other.

Keep Walking,

MiVida es de Oro!
My Life is Golden!

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Hey Ladies,

Don't worry, I am still here. I purposely waited until today to post. This is a day of musing, reflecting, and thought.


Isaiah 42:9

Behold, the former things are come to pass and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Yesterday, "All my troubles seemed so far away." Yesterday was full of fun and freedom. Last night as I reflected on the day, I realized that each day is a gift and treasure. That all the troubles of the day before are gone and new hope and expectation for tomorrow is coming. I was able to relax and enjoy what HE has given to me and to get all of the joy out of it. The things that did not go well, "Oh Well", they are over now.

Here's my list of activities:

Tried to sleep in, that didn't happen.
Rejoiced with my sister in law over her new home.
Had lunch, the salad was soooo good.
Went to class, got an A on my quiz.
Made good on a promise to my daughter to go to the movies.
Laughed real hard in the show, ate the popcorn with the fake butter (again).
Cooked a real dinner.
Took a long hot quiet, no kids at the door shower.
Read one chapter of my book.
Let the T.V. watch me.
Slept well.

1Samuel 12:16
Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the Lord will do before your eyes.
I expect great things from the Lord today. Well, He promised it. I look forward to seeing what He has in store for me. God is unfolding Himself at this very hour; giving me revelation of things to come and what He is doing in the future. I am standing still to see the goodness of the Lord. I am appreciating all the things that He has lined up for me. I know He is doing it. And I am going to receive it. I am rejoicing over it and I am using this time just to bless Him. I am not wrapped up in this election, cause He is still my God and in control. I am not worried about finances, because He owns the cattle upon a thousand hills. He has given me the power to get wealth and He has all things in His hands. I choose to enjoy today; to speak well of it, to be grateful for the sun, rain, sleet or hail. I thank God I can see it, hear the sounds of it and feel the heat of the sun or the cool of the rain. I expect to see the manifested blessings only He can bring. He may send you to bring them but it is through Him that we live, move and have our being.

I thank Him today for:
My Life, Health, My Children, My Husband (that which was and is to come), You, Joy, Peace, Goodness, Mercy, Kindness, Manifestations, Power, Liberty, Patience, Knowledge, Wisdom, Humility, Grace and For Him being so gracious to us all.

James 4:14
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

I can't even begin to describe tomorrow. It could be easy or it could be rough. It could be....? Yet there is one thing that I know is true, it belongs to God. He knows what shall take place on tomorrow. He knows who will be President and He also knows that He IS King. I don't have to fret about any bills, any issues or any drama because it may or may not come. I will not expend energy, time or valuable brain cells on the future issues or causes that may arise.
I will be excited about what is to come. I will be in expectation of great things. I will rejoice in the Lord. I will give Him all praise, for this is the day that He has made. I will sing His Praises. I will not be stressed or in some mess. I will not be a victim but victorious. I will shout unto the Lord. I will speak well of Him and everyone. I will not succumb to the cares of this life. I will see the manifestation of His goodness. I will pray for you, me and the world. I will thank Him for a new day, new mercies and new blessings. I will look to the hills. I will be me.

Have a blessed, prosperous and Faith filled day.

Keep Walking even with THOSE heels ON!
