Bring HIM honor and glory

Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches. 1 Corinthians 7:17 ESV

I was taught that we have direct access to the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. It is the newness of our spirit that can bring honor and glory when we give up our own desires of the flesh to a higher calling on our lives.

But on the other hand, I was also taught that God gave us free will to choose for ourselves how we want to live our lives and to live pursuing our own goals and aspirations.

Lord is this the life you chose for me or am I pursuing my own goals and aspirations?

At what point do you really choose the life God has for you?

Do you continue on your own path of righteousness or do you fully surrender unto the Lord Almighty?

Lord I want to bring you honor in the way that I live and glory in how I use my unique talents. Make your calling clear to me so that I can fulfill it. ~ Amen

Be Sill and Know Daily Devotional

Thanks Ché

True Story

The Poetry Journal wants to connect with you to identify the insecurities in your relationships. Fear, self-doubt, or jealousy. These feelings can occur. We all may experience some level of vulnerability when we choose to love, but you can work through them to achieve your level of confidence.

My book, “The Love Experience” is based on a love affair overseas and I write about identifying the many insecurities I faced and how they affect us psychologically. This Love Experience is based on a true story and is now available on Amazon.com. You can click here to buy your paperback

My Henna Artist @domsol has her copy!

My sister’s friend read her copy on vacation in St. Lucia.

My hair stylist just gave birth to her beautiful new born baby girl and she also has her copy.

This is a blessing to see my work in the hands of the ones I love. I know that I have more work to do to continue to reach you! Thank you Lord for my destiny. God is Glorious all the time.

We Are for Each Other

Chapter Seven ~ (edited) Although his love was not perfect, I realized that neither was mine. I believed there was a victory in being so vulnerable, after I had gone through a major loss, but I made a conscious effort on being confident and decided to love again. We have more work to do, but I knew one day he would come for me and it would be true that he was the one. I discovered that the perfect gift he had to give to me was his heart.

Alone

I can't always focus on the loss, although certain days without him reminds me of how much I miss him. I get angry sometimes and I can be very sad. I am alone in this. That's in my head.

I gain strength on the things that make me happy; big dreams, yet small goals.

My Lord reminds me that I am not alone. It's only by HIS grace and his mercy I am still here. A Mother for her three sons.

Alone, but not alone anymore.

Reward Yourself

Hello to you all! I am just getting back from a summer vacation to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Celebrating good friendships, birthdays and my new book release. Take the time to rewards yourself, even if it's a small success.

This photo of myself with these books stacked in crates on the streets in San Juan shouted out to me. My beloved friend, took the picture. To her it was just a bunch of books, but I saw something different. A perfect opportunity to use this photo as a marketing piece. I love it!

I'm sharing my creative writing content on romance, travel and fantasy all wrapped up in my new book called
"The Love Experience" ~ Blog Edition.

Get all the tea on a mysterious love overseas and a lesson or two about loving you!

Now available on Kindle! Specifically priced for $7.25 or paperback for $17.25.
Thank you for supporting self published authors like me.
