Five Minute Friday: HIDE


Father!!! Hide me!! Hide me from the troubles of the day, take all my anxieties away. Let me hide in your warm embrace and watch the day pass away. I want to hide with you because you melt all my worries away it is with you I love to stay. You are the rock I cling to when no one else seems to understand, you are everything I'll  ever need! So hide me, I command you to hide me for a day!! Just let me chill out in your presence as I recap the week! Now I realize it was you that kept me on my feet. Hiding with you is serene there is no other place I'd rather be! My joy is wrapped up, tied up, and tangled in you! So when I want to hide I promise to always run to you!!

Are You In Good Company?




I was laying in bed one morning after morning prayer and this question was deposited in my spirit "Do you trust your circle to lay hands on you and pray for you when need be?" I was in shock that anything like that would even be deposited into my spirit, as I have many of great prayer warriors in my circle! There have been times when I've been going through something in the midnight hour and shot my friends a text message like "pray!!" and almost instantly receive a reply back. So I just knew that this question wasn't for me. I knew it had to be for God's people, and he broke this thing down to me so sweet!

He said "it starts with the company you keep!" In 1 Corinthians 15:33 the bible tells us "Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits." You can't get upset with me that is bible not babble and you have to be very careful with this one. People may say "I hang with them because I am doing the influencing and I am going to change their perspective!" which is GRRRREAT and I applaud that, but if God didn't TELL you to be hanging, traveling, spending time with them then you don't need to be doing it! You can't help people that don't want to be helped. I know this from experience. Do not be fooled for those that you hang with will have great influence on you!!! It is just like a seed, it may not sprout tomorrow but if it hits fertile ground it will start something. I've seen many people get harmed or end up in prison because of hanging with the wrong people and they merely had nothing to do with the rivalry or the crime that was committed. Be very prayerful concerning your friendships.

"As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." - Proverbs 27:17 If your friend is not saved and going in the same direction as you, how can they sharpen you???EXAMPLE: Recently I was talking to one of my associates and to her knowledge she was giving me some really good advice, but thank God I have some Godly friends and they were giving me advice as well!!! Advice that lined up with God's word, so of course I went with; what not only sounded logically but what was biblical. Had I not had Godly friends then I would of went with what was more comfortable for me and not what was BEST for me.

Along with the same concept from above, in order for my friendships to continue to progress we must be on the same page. I pray, study, and worship too strengthen my relationship with my Father in Heaven, and do my best to live a life that is pleasing to God but if my friend has no care in the world as to their relationship with God; how could I ever trust my friend to lay hands and pray for me when I am sick, worried, and ready to give up on life???? It is merely impossible!! You don't call on the drunkered when you need prayer! You don't run to the hospital when you need prayer!! You don't run to the night club to get prayer!!! You hit up that friend that you know has a relationship with Christ, you run to church to get a sermon, you may even go straight to your Pastor!!


Disclaimer: I am not by any means saying if you don't trust your friend to pray for you that they are a terrible person, that your friend is not a good friend, or that you should cut all your associates and friends off because they don't meet these standards (perhaps God has you on assignment to pour into them, but be sure it is a assignment from God, that you are the one planting seeds, and you remain prayed up), but I am saying WATCH THE COMPANY YOU KEEP & YOU SHOULD HAVE SOMEONE IN YOUR CIRCLE THAT YOU TRUST ENOUGH TO COMPLETE SUCH A TASK AS LAYING HANDS AND PRAYING FOR YOU WHEN NEED BE!! I HAVE ONLY GIVEN YOU WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME! I hope and pray that you were blessed by this reading! Love y'all until next time!! STAY BLESSED!!

"Dear Little Girl" Campaign

Dear Little Girl,
Hey there! You are beautiful, you are the product of a King!! 
You were NOT created to be a trap Queen!
You don't need to sell/do drugs, steal clothes, get drunk, or chase men to fit in. You are a little Princess but soon to be a Queen!
You are fearfully and wonderfully made you aren't fat you're fluffy!! Forget what they say about you they are just jealous of you because when you walk in the room you have the ability to change the atmosphere you are hilarious, wise, phenomenal, encouraging, creative, different and FULL OF LIFE you have the personality that a lot of girls wish they could have so don't be afraid to be YOU, BE happy in your skin, love yourself from within, aspire to inspire, don't conform to someone you're not just to fit in, you were born to stand out, you are loud and you are proud!!
Don't let people steal your fire, misinterpret your sass, and talk about your spunk! You have a wit about yourself that no one can compare! Don't cry when they hug you and turn around and trash you!
You'll be forever growing, don't reject the process! Learn what you like, dislike, need, and want! If you don't remember ANYTHING I've told you above all things remember to consult God about EVERYTHING & if he can't go neither should you! Hey little girl!!! Hey! Guess what? I love you!
***The letter you read is a letter to my younger self!! My sister in Christ, Chanecia Williams started a campaign entitled "Dear Little Girl" cuing women around the globe to write a letter to their younger self, a letter of encouragement, inspiration, or to spark a healing in some areas that have been avoided for many years. NOW, I propose the challenge to you!!! If you would like to share your letter, simply email your letter to Chanecia with pictures of you as a little girl and pictures of you now.
Email: ChaneciaWilliams@hotmail.com

Random Season: When your random takes NO for YES


               
It seems as though it is POP-UP season, you may ask what do I mean by pop-up season, but you know I will explain. I have talked to several sistas of mine over the past weeks and it looks as though their random (ex or friend with benefits) has been popping up left and right; rather it be in their mind, inbox, call log, or in person. They have been on the scene!!!! I said to one of them “It is official random pop-up season”. I don’t know if it is because it is about to get warm and they want to be out and about with a cutie that has sun kissed skin or what, but I REBUKE every last random that has been popping up on you right now in the name of JESUS CHRIST!!!

Lately, the enemy has been trying to creep in by the way of randoms. There are some that proclaimed upon me cutting them off that they would never leave me alone and I can really see that. I’ve had to change my number, get new emails, and block them from several social media sites because they literally will NOT LEAVE ME ALONE after I have told them “I am in a relationship”.  But I’ve learned some very helpful tips when it comes to dealing with randoms that might just help you out as well.

1. Ignore them by all means

I understand that you want to be a nice person and you just want to see how they are doing because I mean why would God place them on your mind if he didn’t want you to talk to him? RIIIIGHT! Well I have news for you, the devil is pretty slick at creeping in where he can fit in. Yes, not responding to someone’s text message can be considered rude but, this RIGHT HERE!! This RIGHT HERE!!! Can be detrimental to your health sis, let me tell you if you show him ANY form of attention he will run with it and before you know it you’ll be right back where you were before; in a toxic relationship that God is NOT pleased with.

2. BLOCK EM!!!

You might call this extreme but if you want your relationship to work, rather you are single and are fully committed to Jesus or you have a courtship that you working on; SIS!!!! Without hesitation sis you have to block em I’ve tried to be friends with randoms on social media thinking that it will not hurt one bit, but that was pure deception! You will see their subtweets about you and they will comment and like things just to be messy.  You may find yourself checking their page wayyyy more than you should.  So do yourself a favor so that you don’t ”cheat” on Jesus which is BAE if you are single or so you don’t cheat on the person you are in a relationship with by keeping those feeling stirring.

3. CUT all ties with family members

This can be one of the hardest things to do when ending relations with a random, because if you all have been dealing with each other for some time you probably have gained a relationship with their family as well. A lot of people will say “his family isn’t the one that hurt me, why do I need to cut them off.” The reason is this, when you stay in contact with them they plant seeds in your heart. They keep you updated on all your randoms activity! You will know who he is or isn’t dating, where he is located, where he works, and there will be plenty of suggestions of you two getting “back together”’; which is NOT what you need!!! So it’s no hard feelings towards his family it just isn’t what is best for you as you are attempting to move on.

4. Keep your friends and family in the know

The fact that your random will not leave you alone can be very serious in this day and age. Make sure you tell your friends and family that you are having problems with your random constantly contacting you, despite the many times you have told him to stop.

5. Call the Police

I sure hope it doesn’t come to this, but you can never be over protected when it comes to YOUR life.  You never know what a person will do. If you have to get a restraining order placed on your random that is perfectly fine. It will provide you with that extra level of comfort that you are protected.

6. PRAY!!!

People scream “prayer works” but fail to use it during times such as these. This has actually been a very effective method when it comes to my randoms. I’ve successfully prayed them away at times, but there are times when I’ve stopped praying about it and they have come right back!!! PRAY WITHOUT CEASING! 

 
I hope & pray that this has been a blessing to your life!

HE HAS RISEN!



HALLELUJAH!!! He has risen!!
He has risen!
But as for me I’ll fall again
But for some reason he was willing to die for my sin
He knew my every fault
But without a thought he gave for me
He gave graciously his life
And I’ll never have enough anything to repay him
But gladly he did it with out a contract of repayment
I don’t know why he would do this I swear I am the lamest
But he decided I still needed to be saved from my own anguish
I was the care taker of my soul but not caring at all
But thank God! Hallelujah! He was willing to die to brace my fall
He knew I thought I had it all and my pride was on fleek
So he had to send a Savior that could change my heart and supply my every need
I’ve never been perfect and I’ve never strive to be
I can’t be anything more or less of me
But when he died on that cross he gave me my identity
And I realized that I don’t have to please people so they will love me
Because I am already loved, unconditionally
There is nothing I can do or say that will make him stop loving me this way
I’m not bound by my transgressions or iniquities because he has long came, served, died, rose, and
set me free
So there is not one thing someone can say to condemn me
Because the Holy Spirit resides in me and is quick to convict me
Therefore another person’s opinion is irrelevant to me
He hung on the cross for my sins, harboring the pain for me vicariously
He broke every chain that wanted to keep me attached to the things that were internally driving me insane.
So I’ll scream from the mountain tops HE HAS RISEN
And the reason that I know it is because NOTHING else could have saved me from the sin I was willingly sinking in!
