Touch Base/Random

It has been  a while since I have written a "proper" post.  I miss writing especially my series themed posts, they inspire me so much.  I have been quite busy and haven't had time to write posts as I use to.
I thought it would be great to do a mini catch up post on "my life lately"...

1. One of my goals the past two years was to find a Church closer to home where I could be/get involved.  I've been blessed to do just that and become involved in the various ministries like, Women's ministry, Community Service etc.  To top it all off, several months ago my Pastor called me out of the blue and asked me to preach a sermon for him at church during his absence.  I was surprised shocked and was wondering to myself where and why out of the blue this request came from.  Well the Man of God said he believes I am Anointed and believes in the Anointing on my life.  I have since preached spoken twice at church. I praise God for using me to touch lives, bring inspiration, awaken the consciousness, courage and hopefulness to not only others but myself too.

2. I was selected to receive a raise in pay on the job recently. This is significant for me and I thank God for the continuous flow of Favor/blessings in my life and career.

3.  My mom traveled to Jamaica in December and stayed for 3 months!!!!  If you've read my blog for a number of years you would know that I'm a Mama's girl.  I thank God for protection during her travels and reuniting us again.

4. I permed my Natural hair over the summer.  Did not process it again until a few weeks ago (about 9 months). It's a welcomed change I must say after being natural since 2008. I've been in mostly protective styles though- wig, braids (which I learnt to do my self several months ago, was one of my goals.) I've been purposeful about taking care of my hair and it is GROWING healthy and beautiful.

5.  My oldest Son is turning 15 next month!!! My, he is still such a sweet child teenager. I'm so proud of him and continue to pray for God's favor to guide and direct his path.  The other son is turning 5 next month also, he doesn't like me much, don't know why but he adores my Mother; oh well.  The youngest is turning two next month as well and his parents are gifts of friendship. My prayer is that God continues to bless and keep them.

6.   Even though I am yet to marry(one of my life goals/ been on my check list for a LONG time waiting to be checked off); My joy is full and I have peace.

Thanks for reading and your support!!  Tell me, what are your favorite kids of post you look forward to most from this space?

Singing: Jesus Saves

Romans 5:7-9 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation.

Jesus Saves
Tasha Cobbs

Romans 5:10-11 Now that we are set right with God by means of this sacrificial death, the consummate blood sacrifice, there is no longer a question of being at odds with God in any way. If, when we were at our worst, we were put on friendly terms with God by the sacrificial death of his Son, now that we’re at our best, just think of how our lives will expand and deepen by means of his resurrection life! Now that we have actually received this amazing friendship with God, we are no longer content to simply say it in plodding prose. We sing and shout our praises to God through Jesus, the Messiah!

You Thought I Was Worth Saving...

Anthony Brown

Romans 5:18-21
Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous.
God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
