I never would have imagined tonight would be the night. John & I have talked about going to church & inviting Jesus into our life. We would pick our church & take the necessary steps towards healing. But tonight, a couple who led the retreat asked to pray over us and asked if I would like to invite Jesus into my heart. I said yes. The 4 of us (her, her husband, John and I) sat holding hands. She had me repeat the words, “I am a sinner & you are my savior. I invite you into my life to bear the burden for me...”. As I said these words, my body shook with a release of anger that had been inside me for so long. A feeling I didn’t even know existed. These words came out of me like a person drowning & was finally coming up for air. I sobbed uncontrollably in between each word we prayed. I cried long & hard. I couldn’t stop it. We both cried. Bricks of burden fell off my shoulders as I felt unstoppable tears pouring down my face. Tears that had been held back for so long. With the shakiest voice, I continued to pray with them.
Those words, “I accept you Jesus into my life” had been burning inside my heart & was now finally free. John kept saying how proud he was of me. It was the most intense moment we have ever had in our marriage. I am so thankful for this weekend & for the doors it has opened. Just wow! #jesus#jesuschrist#jesuscalling#awakening#lifechanging#daughteroftheking#godisgood#openeddoors#faith#havefaith#iamfree#movingmountains#iamfound#finallysaved#mysavior#christ
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. #strong#beautyforashes#singlemom#iamfree#freeindeed
🌺I’M FINALLY BREATHING🌺
When man misunderstands you, Eventually...GOD makes you understand who and who’s you are. Through a series of TRAGIC events in my personal life, I’m finding out who I am and it has NOT been easy. Using strength I never thought was in me. Most of all I’ve been REAL with myself. It was then I started getting answers to my own questions. Accepting ME and most of all who God has created and called me to be. #breatheagain#iamfree
LE TRAVAIL selon sa Sainteté le Pape Jean-Paul 2
Avec l'influence toujours grandissante qu'il exerce sur la terre par son travail (sous toutes ses formes), l'homme répond à l'appel du Livre de la Genèse. Les moyens techniques (eux-mêmes résultat de ce travail) dont l'homme dispose aujourd'hui lui permettent de dominer encore mieux cette terre qui lui a été confiée. Mais ils peuvent aussi être tournés contre l'homme lui même en lui ôtant la satisfaction personnelle et le sens de la créativité, qui devraient accompagner le travail, ou encore en éliminant des emplois. .. C'est pourquoi, sans négliger l'importance du sens objectif du travail humain, il faut en privilégier le sens subjectif. En effet, c'est en tant que sujet, en tant que personne créée à l'image de Dieu, que l'homme travaille et en travaillant se réalise. Et c'est cette dimension personnelle qui donne au travail sa véritable valeur et qui nous rappelle toujours que le travail est "pour l'homme" et non l'inverse.
“Ever wondered why some people keep attracting the same kind of relationships or unhappy situations into their lives. If we don’t repair the unprocessed emotions connected to past events then we tend to run an old program over and over again internally which gets the same results externally. Isn’t it time you started to run some new programs? attracting new fulfilling situations into your life. 😉✌️🌈☀️
It is time to celebrate my one year of social media journaling. (I’m a month late)
Things that have happened;
🌷I’ve connected with like-minded people through agonizing transparency I wouldn’t take back.
🌷I’ve Learned how to write out loud...
Finding my authentic voice (ongoing) and moving forward.
🌷I’ve embraced imperfection, and accepted that everyone has their own stuff.
🌷All of the feelings are okay.
🌷I don’t have to go chasing a different body than the one that has been made for me. I don’t find peace in that everyday, but when I do, it feels GOOD.
🌷Life is more than food and clothes.
I am a human being, not a bunch of numbers.
🌷Accepting that no one is ever 100%, but we are human, learning and reaching for the future.
🌷God wants us to rest in the moments of goodness... and He sees us through our trials and hurts.
🌷I’m looking forward to the future, getting to know myself more and more... as I am, not as I used to be or should be.
Thank you, for joining, following, and sticking around while I navigate all things.
Here is to another year, cheers. 🥂
"I Am Worthy"
This is why I absolutely, with everything in me, love #journaling#JournalJunkie#ILoveToJournal
Journal entry from 4/4/15 that I found while looking for a different journal entry. . .
I didn't see my worth until I stopped looking for it in other people. I realize no matter how many walk in and out of my life, they can only love me so much. I needed to love myself too in order to experience fulfillment. ***Others can't love me on my behalf*** When I started doing that, I lost dependence on people, for my smile and gained independence on myself for my happiness.
From the mouth & heart of @tasiasword . . .
So very fitting for where I am in my life right now!
My worth is not contingent upon what anyone else thinks of me! It's not my problem, they have to take that up with God because HE created me the way He needed me to be 🙌🏾💃🏿🙏🏾#IAmFree#IAmWorthy#WalkingInMyFreedom#GetFreeFromPeople#YouAreFree#YouAreWorthy
Be ok when people leave
Be ok with standing alone
Be ok with being misunderstood
💞💜I Am Worthy💜💞
