Head vs. Heart


the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?
Jeremiah17:9 NKJV

Head vs. Heart!!! “Huh?" "What?" "You’re confusing me! I don’t know what you’re talking about!” “What does that mean?” “I’m not following your logic here?” “Where are you going with this?” “Are they in some kind of competition?” Well in a sense the head and heart are in a competition and you have the power to decide which one wins the battle of tug a war! Today this reading will focus on the battle between the two.
Have you ever been faced with a critical decision and someone told you to “follow your heart?” Of course you have! It’s a well known phrase but in Jeremiah 17:9 it tells us that the heart is deceitful and wicked alluding to the fact that the heart can NOT be trusted. I’ve witnessed the heart steer people into things that they thought they were free from, all because the heart was "head over hill" for the very thing they had been delivered from, and by doing something as simple as “following their heart”, they took 10 steps back (after taking 5 steps forward) to the place that has the potential to doom them straight to hell.


The winds are high and the temperatures are dropping to record lows. The leaves are falling and pretty soon we can expect snow. But this doesn’t not mean that you have to participate in the infamous ritual of “cuffing season” despite the fact that the season has changed it doesn’t mean that your season of singleness is up. The last thing you want to do is cut yourself short.



We must be people that think with our head instead of our heart, because the heart will cause you to go back to that dead end relationship that you know is no good for you mentally, physically, and spiritually simply because your heart is telling you that you still love that person but the reality of the situation is that; you don’t want to be alone for the fall/winter months. You want someone to hold you tight and keep you warm through the night.


The heart is so manipulative, I call the heart an emotional muscle because one it is a muscular organ (if you didn’t know, now you know) and two that is where all our issues/emotions (Prov.4:23) flow from (one reason why it is vital that we guard our heart). Our heart has the ability to make us feel a number of ways; happy, anxious, depressed, surprised, irritated, worried, confident, angry, etc. but we don’t have to allow our emotions to have control over us.

Before you go to bed at night take a moment silence your heart(emotions) and sit at the throne of God so that he can fix, heal, and cleanse the areas of your heart that may be broken and damaged. Ask him to help you enjoy your singleness and to instruct you on where you need help growing and preparing for your future mate. A season of singleness isn't the wilderness God is still talking and instructing but you have to be available to listen and if you are busy "following your heart" and filling your life with clutter to avoid the preciousness of this season in your life, your future mate will be ready to meet you before you are ready to meet him. And you don't want to keep him waiting any longer than what he already has! :-)

****I pray that this reading has been a blessing to your single season and has also challenged, encouraged, and informed you sista girl!! In the comment section, let me know what you do to silence your heart when it is causing every emotion to surface that you know isn't ordained from God? Also, if you are married what are some things that you did in your season of singleness to prepare for your mate? PLEASE SHARE!!

Imagine This!


Imagine that the doctor told you that you had a disease that required you to take ONE pill every morning and night before bed; or your day would be a disaster or you would heighten your possibilities of not waking up the next morning. What would you do? Would you take this pill because it has the ability to keep you afloat? potentially help you get through a dreaded Monday! Keep you alive! Extend your life! Keep your mind regulating! Keep your peace! Allow you activity of your limbs!

So if you'd take this pill, why don't you use prayer like this pill? Prayer has the power to do all these things and more. I encourage you to start praying like your life depends on it because it truly does. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese pray before you start your day and pray before you lay EVERY DAY!!

WORDS have POWER!!


{WORDS have POWER!!!}


"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" this is one of the many lies we told ourselves as children when things bothers us, but we refuse to accept the fact that we were hurting from the words that had been spoken over our life, but I'll tell you right now that words have power!! Let me tell you how I know....When I was in GRADE SCHOOL (on through my late HS years) I was a MEAN, MEAN, MEAN girl!!!! (no one can seem to believe that) I would say anything that came to my head with no regret!! I knew exactly how to make you feel like the worse person in the world. I would mistreat, tease, and fight people just because I liked the way it made me feel; big, bad, and in control!! But in reality hurt people hurt people and I was truly a lost and hurting child, but that story is for another day!

I received a message about a month ago that had me in TEARS!!! It was from a childhood classmate asking for my forgiveness (in attempt to not reveal the sex of the person I will refer to the person as they and them) because they had held a grudge towards me since GRADE SCHOOL!!! Yess!! grade school!! for something that I had done/said to them. I was blown away by the fact that something I had done stuck with this person for 10+ years!!! It made me really think, "I wonder how many other people are still suffering from the things I did or said to them in grade school!" I immediately sent this person my deepest apology and thanked them for being so bold to message me, which gave me the opportunity to explain that I am no longer that person I used to be and most importantly apologize; which led me to write this post.

As I sat with my jaw dropped to the floor after reading the lengthy message I received, my mind ran 126994223 miles an hour. Still in shock and utter disbelief I knew I had to do more than apologize to one person, because I have TRULY done my dirt in my day. So I want to take this moment to PUBLICLY apologize to ANYONE that I hurt in anyway in the past, rather it was from something I said or did to you. I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my hurt!! I pray that you are able to forgive me!!! I am NOT the person I used to be in grade school, middle school, high school, nor am I that girl from my early 2008-2010 years of college. Please join in with me as I, Thank God he stalked me down and changing my life, language, and heart completely!!!

Also, I wanted to take this moment to pray for anyone that has been bullied, teased, or mistreated by any one!!

Father God, we thank you for another opportunity to approach your throne of grace. I come to you on behalf of those that have been bullied, teased, or mistreated in any way what so ever. I ask that you would restore, heal, and mend those broken places. Please fill every void that they have tried to avoid. I speak against any witchcraft and word curses spoken over their lives. I decree and declare that they are free!! Free in their minds and free in their hearts! I break the curse of rejection over their lives in the name of Jesus! I ask that your Holy Spirit would continue to build them up in the areas that they need help in. I plead the precious blood of Jesus Christ over them now! & decree and declare that no hurt, harm, or danger will come upon them. Reveal to them their purpose in the earth realm. I cast out the spirit of fear that may be present in their life, I ask that you would give them a spirit of boldness. God you are love so please, make your love known to them. Reassure them that they are not what people try to label them as. I declare victory in their life! It is in Jesus almighty name we have prayed. AMEN!

Be careful how you treat people and how you talk to people, because even if they don't say it they could very well be feeling the effect of it.

I pray that this has sparked a healing in your life if you have been bullied, teased, or mistreated! If you have been bullied, teased, or mistreated please share in the comments how you dealt with it, how did you heal from that? have you healed? are you in the process of healing? etc. Also, I challenge other parties to reevaluate their life story and see if there is any where that they can offer someone a apology/prayer for something they may have said or done.
