Check the Deposit

Would you deposit your money, your time, your energy, or anything of value to you into something you didn’t believe in? No? Neither would God. Check out what he says here in 2 Corinthians 1:21-22: “Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.” God values our souls so much that he deposited a piece of His sacred, holy Spirit inside each one of us. What an honor and a privilege to be able to carry the Spirit of God himself. It’s also a great responsibility. When I take my money down to the bank – the money I’ve worked over 50 hours a week for – I expect it to be safe. I expect it to be invested and grown and multiplied. That’s the same for God. He doesn’t expect us to hoard his Spirit, but nurture it, grow it and spread it and share it with others. 

We have a responsibility to see ourselves the way God sees us, with all the value that we have. We are His most prized possessions. He loves us so much he gave us his Spirit, his power! That type of access, when we unlock it, can cause chains to break, can eliminate strongholds, it can heal broken places, it can mend damaged spirits. That’s our charge as believers. We have to keep tapping into that deposit. I never runs dry. Even when we can’t see it, it’s there. Our accounts are self- replenishing. The Spirit of God is omnipresent and everlasting. Once he deposited it, He couldn’t renege. That’s one of the beauties of salvation; it goes on and on. 

My charge to you is to keep pushing yourself. Keep growing. Keep nurturing your deposit. His Spirit is life and life in abundance, in overflow and fruitfulness. Do not let the enemy or yourself distract you from this truth. 

The Intrinsic Beast

Before we get started… Hey, y’all. I can’t believe it’s been since April. Whew! Um… I really have no excuse. I’ve just allowed myself to become distracted by things that ultimately do not matter. And there it is. And I want to start this by saying that. I’ve always been very transparent on here, and that will never stop. So, before we begin… I don’t know how much I am going to share. Some things I have to save for a later time, but I hope to share enough to where you get some insight as to why I have been missing from here.

Social Media Isn’t What’s Breaking Us Up!!!!

Disclaimer: this is general information I’ve learned over the 30 years of my being on this earth. This blog is in no way about my current relationship. 

 

Some told me today that I should keep my relationships off social media. When I asked why, this person could offer no valid response, well tbh no response at all. This let me know his statement was delivered through his biases of his personal experiences; rather that be his relationships, or ones he’s observed. 

“Social Media isn’t what’s breaking people up.” Okay, he didn’t said it exactly that way, but I’ve revised the sentence to proper English for the purposes of (hell, I really don’t know)… 😂 anyway, I’ve very scatterbrained right now 😂 However, that is what he meant. 

That brings me to these points… 

Social media isn’t what’s breaking us up.( What’s breaking us up is…)Our lack of commitment. Our lacks of self-control. Our anger issues. Our trust issues. Our identity issues. Our self-worth issues. Our respect for ourselves. Our lacks of respect for others. Our lacks of understanding of ourselves, really. And that lists goes on and on and on. Ugh. 💆🏽‍♂️

And It’s not the issues that are the problem. It’s our unwillingness to deal with them. To face them. To engage in conflict with them. And to finally have victory over those issues. We don’t want to look at ourselves in the mirror, and face our on truths about ourselves… because some of those truths aren’t so pretty. It’s okay… you can say “ouch.” I said it too. Those words hurt. They hurt like hell. 

But that’s the beauty of this all. In a relationship. A true relationship, each partner can be right there in the middle of the struggle with their other half’s. Holding them, and loving them, and crying with them, and building with them, and creating with them. Troubles don’t last always. 

But most don’t grit their always because they give up. Either they give up on their partners, or they give up on themselves. And that’s another loaded statement that I could go on and on about, but I’ll digress to this…

We all have to do better. We have to be better. We have to love better. Or we’ll all get stuck in continuous cycles of toxicity. 

Goodness Gracious

The goodness of God is in His grace…and we get a fresh batch of it every morning.😩🥰 He’s already been TOO good. If He did nothing else, He’s already done enough. But He genuinely loves doing and being good to us. He wants it so much he gives us a new grace, a new good, each day. Grace is God’s goodness.

The Fight of Faith

I’ve been fighting the devil all week. I’m exhausted. But what gives me hope is know that the fight is fixed, and I have already been declared the winner.

This is Our Love Story

I began praying for marriage and legacy over three years before God brought that prayer to fruition. Something in my spirit always knew I would marry at the age of 30. If you’re familiar with my blog or my books, then you’ve seen me write about my trials and troubles and my spiritual growth over the past three years since returning to Houston. What I am realizing now, is that God was preparing me to receive what I had been praying for.
