It’s time for the weekly Sunday inspirational post! 😂😂😂 I laughed when I found this one. Sometimes we need a laugh! Sometimes the door that closes CAN be reopened. Do you have an example of this in your life? I do! I didn’t make it into graduate school the first time I auditioned. I was, understandably, upset. But I knew what I wanted, so I spent the year learning new repertoire and working, and I got into every school I applied for the next time around! Sometimes that doorknob is just a little stuck. 😉
Have a great week! ❤️
Use your POWER to EMPOWER 💪🏾🌍💪🏼 My 96 yr. Old grandma set the example for me when she and my grandpa left the comforts of their home in America to make a new home in Brazil. There, they adopted abandoned children, started an orphanage that later became a school, built a church and shared the love of Christ with everyone they met. They had the courage to help make the world a better place. I strive to live up to their example 😍 What we do and whom we choose to help has lasting affects on the generations to come! Thank you grandma for being my first WORLD CHANGER!
Today’s promise is from.. Lamentations 3:22-24
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."”
One of the best things about having Jesus in our lives is, we can always have new beginnings. When we mess up in life today, we can stand up and start again. This is possible because of the hope that we have in Christ, His mercies never come to an end. In fact, He offers it new every morning proving that His faithfulness is great. And you know why God gives us several chances even if we fail Him every day? It’s because His love for us is always bigger than our mistakes.
Dear believer, Jesus’ love for you stretches from east to west. If you feel like you’ve failed in your journey, please know that the steadfast love of God never ceases. They don’t stop when you fail. In fact, the Lord continues to love you despite your shortcomings because that’s how a father’s love is, pure and unconditional. You are loved no matter what. It is my prayer that today, you will approach His throne of grace and be reminded that you can always get back up and just start again.
Crawl then Walk then Run before you can Fly
Did you notice a pattern here? If you noticed as we went from one line to another, progress was being made. Growth was taking place.
Progress signifies growth. And time is necessary for this to occur. You don’t harvest the same day you plant. We need to give it a bit of time.
So many of us get frustrated because we want to see results immediately. We call that the microwave solution and it’s not reality or in line with how nature works.
Things take time and even with that, there are stages of growth. From crawling to walking to running to flying. Don’t settle at either, there’s always a next level.
Wish everyone of you the best as you go forward this week. Go crush it and don’t down the next person trying to do same...he or she might be on their last leg and you might just be the oxygen tank that keeps them going.
Be brave! 💙 Life gets tough sometimes. You're stronger than you know and you can do more than you think. (Even if it's just surviving the Monday blues tomorrow 😁) You got this! This post is for anyone who needs to hear this message. God bless~

Always a adventure with my babies. I learn so much from them each & everyday. They show me what they see through their eyes & what a world they see. 🌎 So full of wonder, curiosity & 100’s of questions. To be a child all over again 😌
Take a moment to take it in. ❤️
Our children have so much to teach us.
Always remember, never be afraid to ask questions ☺️
As i said keep it on the cardio side today. Felt good doing 5 miles had to do some speed walking as i had it on random. Burn 800 plus calories what the treadmill said.
Will be doing a video when the 180WWW1C125 shirts come in. Goal to sell five so will test them on looks and how well they do from gym to everyday wear. Cant wait to see what i work on come in. And my Iron King shirt and chain. Hats next on list may need two one for the gym and other for everyday.
I know some of you are not liking monday on the way or some already has. Listen that mindset let it go. I know things are happening in your life. What you can contorl what cant be controlled give it that moment then let it go. You mad be mad sad be sad dont knoe what to do its ok. Once you get it out give it to the Lord and start moving. Even if its an inch its better then just staying there. It will past and get better. Not just with time but with a choose.
Alright that enough
Stay faithful encourage inspire and focused on that lifestyle change.
Never forget to be who God made you, your Why Faith Goals and Dreams.
Without them just chasing
Para ti y para mi❤️! Buenas noches amigos!🌙
“Don’t compare yourself with anybody, hold your head very high and remember: you are not better or worse, you are you and nobody can do a better job at that.”
❤️For you and for me! Good night, friends!🌙
A (long) note for the day 📝
I have lost myself a bit these past few months. I feel like I haven’t paid attention to MY needs as much as I need, want, and deserve to. I have not been putting myself first nor have I been loving to myself either. In many moments I am so hard on myself and don't look at the positives instead of just the negatives. I want to give my self more grace in order to progress even more in my journey and I am starting that right about now! There are always things I could say I am not doing good enough or right. Will that help me harping on all that, no! So for me I need to make a change in that moment when I start my negative thinking, something that will help me go further and be better in that moment. It really needs to be something I can do right then and there, whether its positive self talk, writing down my feelings, pros and cons, whatever skill or approach I think will help make that moment easier for me to get through and make some positive impact on myself.
I know I love myself but I have lost sight of it more than I’d like too, lately. I have reached out and asked for more support and help and thats all I can do. Im staying as positive as I can knowing that concentrating on me and putting myself first will only get me to a better place in my journey where I fully accept and love myself in every way! Only I can accomplish that as I put in ultimate effort into my life and what I want for my future because if I don't start being more focused on myself, I am only wasting time and I wont be able to share as much love as I have to give this world, because I need to learn to give it to myself first and foremost! I truly know I am loved by so many others. The only problem is I need to learn to love myself unconditionally so I can in turn do so for others. There is no way to give love to another that you don't even totally have for yourself, in my opinion, as I have come to learn and believe. #hope#happiness#worthit#worthy#love#peace#hopeful#motivation#encouragement#loveyourself#selfcare#courage#beauty#gratitude#grateful#positive#theknewnashblog#thepresent#today#liveinthemoment#journey#recovery#mindfulness
It wasn’t until I became vulnerable with the people in my life and most importantly with God did I realize how strong I actually was.
It wasn’t until I was real with myself, asking myself if I wanted to stay in this place that I was at or if I wanted to press onward no matter how difficult, painful, or hard it may become at times.
It’s days like today that I choose to press onward no matter how I feel or what I see!
Because God has and will continue to remind me of how proud He is of who I am and who I am becoming (more like Christ). He has reminded me of how far I have come and how far I will continue to go because He will never leave me nor forsake me!
So when days like today happen where I try on a million and one outfits and think that none of them look great, and wonder when I will ever be as pretty as other girls - He reminds me of how beautifully and wonderfully made I am; inside and out!
Or days where I don’t feel adequate and enough - He reminds me He has given me all that I need to do what He has set before me and that He has made me more than enough.
In every area that I have believed that I am less than or weak in He has made me strong through Him!
In every moment I start to think that the circumstances and situations that surround me on all sides will over take and be too much to handle - He reminds me that He is always with me and He has already won the victory in every area!
So it’s days like today and everyday that I will remind the devil that he is already been defeated and Jesus has already won the battle and that I am more than a conqueror and coheir with Christ seated with Him at the right hand of the Father!

————————————————After having really deep conversation with my ah-mazing gal friends at city group, I’ve decided my platform for self-love, spiritual growth and encouragement is titled “living authentically”. Why authentically?
The definition of authentic is: of undisputed origin. GENUINE.
Genuineness is such a difficult thing to find in a world who expects very unrealistic lifestyle out of ordinary people. That ranges from social media to what you read in magazines and watch on television.
How do you live authentically? By being for all people. Not just the people that make you look better. Not for the people who get you more likes on Instagram. Not for the people who dress the way you do, listen to the same music as you do. Not JUST for the people that are older than you. Not just for the specific group of popular people who know how to make an atmosphere fun. Reach out to the quiet person in the corner who is painfully shy. Reach out to the person you never talked to outside of your school, your sports team, your church, your friends circle. And reach out to them because you love the ones God calls His own. Reach out to them because you know how you wish you would’ve had someone approach you when you were the quiet, uncertain one. Wouldn’t it be amazing if every person you befriended just wanted a very AUTHENTIC, flourishing relationship with you? There’s nothing fake about that person or what their motives are. BE. THAT. PERSON.
A tough moment does not define how your future will look. Always know there is room for growth and positivity 🌱🌺

Being a good person here on Earth is a great thing! Giving to the poor, caring for the sick, supporting those in need, and selflessly donating your time to anyone you can will gain you respect from people and favor in God’s eyes. However, simply doing good works isn’t enough to get into Heaven. The ONLY way to eternal life after death is to put your trust in Jesus! You need to honestly believe with all your heart that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and that He conquered death by rising from the grave to forgive your sins. If you have this faith in your heart, then you have salvation in Jesus Christ! Tonight I pray that many people read this and consider the truth and importance of this fact. If you want to know more about how to be saved, or if you would just like us to pray for you, please send us a message. We’ll be glad to come alongside you with support and encouragement! #trustinjesus#salvation#eternallife#heaven#support#praise#encouragement#sundaynight#bibleverse#comfort#peace#dm#linkinbio#youareloved#jesussaves#allarewelcome
Church today laptop back up and running and had a blast today got out my usual and got to hangout with a friend and was fun. Sometime just having someone to talk to and get to know can be fun. Hit the gym just cardio. Trying to keep it simple for sunday monday though saturday diffrent story. Im alive and well just work heavy in the @180warriorwaitingwithin1c125 side.
Feels good to contact glad i did them now then ealier. Why im rocking shades lol. Have am awsome night and monday own it and tell it whos boss.
When I was a little girl and would come to Nashville to sing or have business meetings, I always told my mom, I would live here. Something screamed my name in the air a little more with every visit. Somehow it took me 10 years longer than I thought It would, but I was right, this is my city, these are my people. Timing is everything y’all. If you believe in something, hold on to that dream and watch it come into reality. Don’t doubt what you know even if it seems hazy in the meantime, diamonds aren’t made over night, Love is NOT at first sight, and sometimes it takes a decade for a girl to get to the city she was made for. Cause EVERYTHING has a reason, and God knows the plan even if you don’t. Our doubt sometimes just slows down the blessings that God wants to send us just by adding negative energy to the Promise that’s been made to your soul. It’s hard, but there really is SO much truth to this walk by faith thing. And God is DEFINITELY still working on my patience, but OH what a virtue it is when you can attain it. So thankful, so blessed, life is SO good. - Photo by: @theotherchrisscruggs
I’ve had such an amazing weekend! A thousand plus women gathered together to laugh, cry, celebrate, encourage, empower, and rekindle the flame of faith, value and purpose.
I was reminded once again that you CAN rise beyond the clouds of the darkest storm, and find that the sun never stopped shining! Choose to keep living, and allow love into the deepest core of your being. 💫
“If you find the godless world is hating you, remember it got its start hating me. If you lived on the world’s terms, the world would love you as one of its own. But since I picked you to live on God’s terms and no longer on the world’s terms, the world is going to hate you. When that happens, remember this: Servants don’t get better treatment than their masters. If they beat on me, they will certainly beat on you. If they did what I told them, they will do what you tell them.” ~ John 15:18-20
The Storm is The Sign- Have Faith and Keep Going ✨🌊☔️🙏🏻💎💖
Are you being shown more demonstration of a storm rather than the delivery of what you want? Keep going! Realize that this is a really GOOD sign!
Know that the closer you get to the light, the bigger the shadow becomes. How exciting is this? You must have TRUST, FAITH and the burning desire to follow the path of your dreams. Then keep going. Pay attention to the twigs, flowers, and wood floating by you and showing you the way.
Columbus never gave up- He had a dream/goal and a burning desire and refused to give up because of the storms he was encountering.
3 days...on the morning of the third day...him and his crew began to see the other side of the storm...the delivery.
There is such power and magic in the number 3...your signs are everywhere- be awake and aware of the signs of "land." You are closer than you realize.
Keep going . "Toward the end of the long voyage, the crew became increasingly restless. So much so that the captains of the Pinta and Niña met with Columbus to discuss turning back before they had a mutiny on their hands. Columbus bargained with them and knew that he could be facing the plank if his "hunch" didn't pan out. He was able to get them to agree to press on for just THREE more days.
After the meeting, Columbus stood in his faith convinced without wavering that land was near and pressed on. That first night the three ships covered more distance than any other day during the entire journey. This caused concern for the crew.
Why were they suddenly moving so quickly?
The next day, the excitement began to spread amongst the crew. Sure signs of land could be found in the water: twigs, flowers, and wood that had been carved were spotted floating past them."
Your miracles and manifestation are closer than you think.
