Morning Minutes; My Worth

Yesterday me and my girlfriend were having a conversation on disrespect.  This conversation turned into an article because it’s a direct reflection of who God says I am.

 She and I have been in abusive relationships.  Abuse is disrespect. No matter the form its a pure disregard for humanity and the love that is supposed to exist between two people.

I wanna take the time out to let others know; in no way does God want you to stay in an abusive relationship.  This is not His will.  Many of us stay in marriages or situations because we somehow feel this is what God wants for me.  The God I serve calls me beloved.  These situations are neither loving nor safe.

Alot of situations get drastic because we as survivors have ignored the first thousand times they disrespected us and didnt check the problem then.

  I chose to raise the bar. I take a stand after being in many abusive relationships and a marriage, that I will not take any form of disrespect again from a man claiming he is pursuing me or loving me.  Because I’ve learned that, that isn’t love at all.

Morning Minutes; Writers Block

Good morning,

As I was praying and meditating yesterday I just couldn’t figure out why I didn’t really like the creative display of my work for the past couple of days.  

Just like that, it came to me.  I have writers block.  So one of the things that helps writers block is to read.  I do read but i need more material.

So bare with as I get over this mental block and open up my creative side.

Morning Minutes; Who am I?

For we are Gods masterpiece.  He has created us anew in Christ Jesus so we can do good things He planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10

He gave his life to free us from every kind of sun, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, committed to doing good deeds. Titus 2:14

Masterpiece-a persons greatest piece of work,as in art. (www.dictionary.com)

I am in my prayer corner reading these two verses and I have this slight grin on my face.  I think we seem to forget that we are a masterpiece crafted by God.  When I think of a masterpiece im reminded of art in a gallery that people stare at in amazement.  I am also reminded of the amount art collectors pay for a masterpiece.

So to know that I was not only handcrafted to perfection by God but also created for good works gives me a strong sense of self.  It gives me joy because now I realize that I am perfectly imperfect.  Every part of me was crafted into perfection by Christ and since He designed it, He accepts it,and so should I.

With the realization that I am indeed a masterpiece I dare not go for cheap or settle for any buyer no way.  

I think this has just gave me a boost in my self esteem which is not a bad thing.

Morning Minutes; W.P.H.F

Morning Minutes; W.P.H.F

For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself.  Christ made us right with God; he made us pure, and holy, and freed us from sin. 1 Corinthians 1:30



I am wise, pure, holy, & free.


We live in a world where our mind is being poluted daily.  Whether it’s from tv, music, or just plain conversations, it happens daily.  When this happens, we draw up all kinds of conclusions about ourselves and others that are simply not true.  These thoughts are not wise, holy, pure, or freeing.

Whoever said the eyes are the windows to the soul was really on to something, im certain.

This weekend, I pulled my covers up to my chin, put my AC on full blast, and watched lifetime movies…  Now I can’t really tell you were my mind was but I was watching the most saddest movies.. I was really sitting there crying on most all the movies I watched.  I was just sad.  Just plain pitiful.  I then got in a state of despair as I compared my past and story to that of the stories of the women I was watching. (Yea here we go lol)

I recall this one particular movie with a lady with 5 kids and no man around.  The kids were very unkept, they weren’t fed well, and their house was dirty.  As she went out the stares she would get from people and the comments were just saddening.  I began to look at my self and children and feel deep sorrow as I compared my kids to her kids and my life to hers. Then I thought, people must look at me like this.

Now to people that know me, THIS IS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS!  JUST THE THOUGHT OF THESE ANALOGIES GOING THRU MY HEAD IS ENOUGH FOR ONE OF MY GOOD FRIENDS TO COME KNOCK ON MY DOOR, SLAP ME, THEN WALK AWAY. Literally!!!  

I also began to think I was a horrible mother  and this was how people saw me. Here again, ridiculous thoughts about myself, kids, and others.  These thoughts again were not pure, holy, wise, and nor did they give me a free feeling.

Once I began to realize what was going on I immediately cut the craziness off and renewed my mind. Now I am not saying ban lifetime but I am giving you a clear example on how something that little invaded my thoughts.

I now realize the urgency of renewing my mind daily as the word states.  Every morning I will recommit to a daily pattern of meditating, prayer, healing, reading, and affirming, AND I suggest you do the same.  Remember the tongue is very wise and those who love it will eat of its fruit..

Now let me use some of my wisdom & freedom and get ready for work. Lol

Morning Minutes; I am

God has united you with Christ Jesus. 1 Corinthians 1:30a SLA

I battle depression.  Some episodes have been so bad that I haven’t been able to get out the bed.  I remember the darkest time in my marriage I actually had to go stay with my Aunt Charlotte so she could feed me and my kids.

Although I rarely suffer from episodes this bad anymore, I want to get in a position where I am living bulletproof.  A position where my circumstances dont affect my moods and how I look at myself.

So I am currently studying “who God says I am” so I can continue to build my confidence up and so you &I (yes this study is for us all lol) won’t settle.  This study started out a simple question but now I am focused on learning who the King says I am.

United; made one, combined. http://www.merrianwebster.com

So, I am united with Christ.  I am one with Him.  I sit back and smile at the thought.  I am astounded by this truth because Christ is good.  Everything that is good is Christ and I am one with Him so I am everything good. So healing, love, prosperity, mercy, grace, light, kind, miraculous, beautiful, healed, whole, because they are Christ and I am one with Him I  AM THESE THINGS!!!

So for every bad word or thought that has encamped our mind or our presence we can cast down because they are not who we are.  We are one with Christ so if He isn’t it, we aren’t either. Since Jesus Christ is love and I am united with Him, I am everything loving.

I am love.

I am great.

We are love.

We are great.
