Recently I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by the amount of duties on my plate. I work full time, have a freelance business, a newly created podcast (still in the beginning stages), a beautiful fur friend @wrigleyparkert that needs love an attention, I have physical goals I’m striving for, and on top of that I try to find time for a social life. Sure, I create this busy-ness for myself and I always have the choice to slow down but I know someday all of my hard work will come full circle. God’s got a plan for me and everything I’m doing. So I put this out there as a reminder for me and for you, keep going. .

God talks to me🙏 this was on my bible app this morning. (Read my last post) Yesterday, I apologized for being a little distant lately and talked to him about my fears. I questioned my purpose and asked for direction for the thousandth time. This is the message I got this morning❤🦋 #Godisgood#Godisreal#faith#hope#peace#love
Toddlers playing doctor + putting on their thinking face = 😍
Seriously love this little boy. He sees me working and constantly tells me ‘good job, mommy!’ and ‘I’m proud of you.’ Then says he wants to be a doctor, too. (At least, that’s what he wants to do currently). Love this little human so much and am so thankful for him 💕 what are you thankful for today? #doctor#lovehim
Do you start your day in conversation with God? When you do, are you honest with Him, voicing all of the desires of your heart, no matter if they are wrong or right?
I struggled with this for SO LONG. First of all, I love to sleep, so I didn’t make time to get up 10 minutes earlier to pray and do a devotion. Secondly, I was raised in a very old-fashioned church, where prayers were always so FORMAL. They were scripted and I felt they were not genuine. They were prayers that we thought God wanted to hear from us. .
I don’t pray like that anymore. Every morning, God gets to hear from ME and MY HEART. Even if I feel silly praying for it, I do it anyway. After all, He created me and had a little something to do with the desires in my heart, so I’m sure NOTHING surprises Him! 😜
Because of this, now I LOVE to start my day with Him. I can’t wait to pour out my heart to Him and hear what He says in return. .
Is there something on your heart you want to say to Him or ask Him for? In the Bible, it says, “You have not because you ASK not.” He’s GOD. He can handle whatever requests you have. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. ❤️
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10
✨ This verse really speaks to my soul. Just look around and you’re reminded that God is the ultimate artist. He created us, ONE OF A KIND, to do amazing things to glorify His name. AND he planned it out before you were even born. You are pretty special.✨
"Dios es nuestro refugio y nuestra fuerza; nuestra ayuda en momentos de angustia.
Por eso no tendremos miedo,
aunque se deshaga la tierra,
aunque se hundan los montes en el fondo del mar." - Salmos 46:1-2
Dulce Padre, Amado Dios, hoy me acerco hasta Ti, llena de emoción y alegría para darte las gracias por este nuevo despertar, por tu infinita misericordia, por mi familia y por todas aquellas bendiciones que Tú nos das día tras día y que nos recuerdan tu bondad y tu inmenso amor.
Señor, gracias por cuidar de mi vida y guiar mis pasos; es hermoso sentir la paz de tu compañía y la certeza de tu presencia. Padre celestial, Por favor nunca te apartes de mí, pues sin Ti yo no puedo ser feliz.
Dios, quiero entregarte el día que comienza, mis planes y todos mis anhelos. Por favor ilumíname con tu radiante luz, tómame de la mano y guíame en cada paso que dé.
Por favor abre mis sentidos para entender los hechos que se presenten en mi camino, dame entendimiento para alcanzar mis objetivos y valor para superar las adversidades.
Padre, en esta oración también quiero pedirte por la felicidad, la prosperidad y la salud de mi familia. Por favor mira nuestras vidas y nuestras necesidades, escucha nuestras suplicas y no nos desampares. Por favor derrama tu amor sobre nuestro hogar y nuestro ser, ayúdanos a crecer y permite que cada nuevo día sea mejor que el anterior.
Por favor, sé nuestro refugio en los peligros y nuestra defensa segura ante todos los males. Defiéndenos de las envidias, de las injusticias y del enemigo mal intencionado y cuando nuestras fuerzas parezcan diezmarse, sé nuestro rebosante remanso de agua fresca y revitalizante.
Señor, es un nuevo día y yo despierto llena de fe y alegría, pues Tú me has dado un nuevo soplo de vida. Te pido que seas Tú colmando mi jornada de bendiciones y permite que cada decisión que tome esté llena de tu amor y tu sabiduría, en el nombre de Cristo Jesús. Amén. 🙏

A year ago today I was in a really bad car accident. I said goodbye to many things including my car, my career, my boxing class, and my steady income. I never imagined something so tragic would happen to me. I did everything "right" according to this world, so I thought "Why the suffering God?" Although I tried my best to stay positive, eventually everything caught up to me and I became very depressed. Fast forward a year later - I would like to share that the car accident was the BEST thing that ever happened to me! You ask, how? Well friends, it forced me to fall to my knees and seek God. "We also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulations produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope." (Romans 5:4-5) This scripture has changed my perspective on tribulations. My suffering caused me to seek God (perseverance). By pressing into Him, I developed my character - a child of God who surrendered her life to Him. My character then produced hope in Jesus, in which I now carry with me each and every day. He already suffered in my place so that I can live a victorious life filled with His hope.
I would like to share something with you friends - just because we are children of God, that doesn't mean we get a bypass from difficulties. It simply means that we overcome them with our faith. The tribulations cause us to lean on God, and by doing so, our hope begins to rise. I almost get excited when life get hard because I now know that God is up to something new and amazing - I go from tribulation straight to hope. I really encourage you to meditate on this scripture next time a struggle comes along. Experience it for yourself, talk to God, read His word, and build your trust in Him. By pressing into Him you will develop a new character, and this character will give you hope for the future. I am so thankful for my tribulations because they always launch me somewhere greater. From the woman I was a year ago, to the woman of God I am today - its evident that the bigger the battle, the bigger the victory. Be enlightened, if you are going through a setback, that only means God is preparing to launch you somewhere greater! #DefeatToVictory ↗️🙌
