In my last post I introduced myself to the world. I had been talking about starting a blog for literally 6 months now! So this is really one of the goals that I am so happy that I reached. I love to write and this is a way for me to release some of the energy that I have with everything going on in my life. Here are a few things that I would like to achieve through blogging:
- The number 1 reason that I am blogging is because I want to glorify GOD, anything that I do I want to make sure that HE is being kept first (HE is the alpha, and omega of my life), HE guides me and gives me the strength to do what I have to do in my life. So everything that I blog, will be inspired by HIM and HIS word!
- For my kids: Keishawn, Michaela,and Makenzie, I always want to make sure that I am being a true inspiration to them. I want to be candid, and transparent with them. I want them to know that life is full of up’s and down’s, good and bad, strong and weak, ying and yang (haha). No really I want them to know that their mom is a real person that is having to make decisions on a daily basis, from being a responsible person and waking up and going to work to provide for them , to what I want to eat for lunch, to what outfit I want to wear for the day. It can seem very simple, but life is full of decision making and we have control over what we decide to do with our lives and I want them to know that GOD is always there guiding them in their journey. That I will always have their back, and EVERYTHING I do, it is to enrich their lives with my love!
- I am about to be divorced (officially) on November 24th, 2015 since making the decision to separate from my husband, my eyes have been opened to many things. It feels like I was blind for 14 yrs. of my life (and I am not being funny) I will definitely be writing about this in future posts, but ending my marriage has been something that have been a TRUE test in multiple areas of my life. Don’t get me wrong, this is truly hard, and being a woman of GOD I know that HE hates divorce, but one thing that I have to remember is that HE may hate divorce but he does not hate divorcees. I go through many emotions and am still battling with my decision but this is between me and GOD and I would have never had the relationship with Christ that I have right now, if me and my ex were still together. I AM PUTTING GOD FIRST IN ALL THINGS. So this blog is my FREEDOM! Freedom to speak up against anything that is not of HIM, anything that is trying to disrupt the purpose that HE has for my life. I needed to separate from this person in order to live the ABUNDANT LIFE THAT HE HAS CALLED ME TO! (this is part of the reason for my blog name)
To hold myself accountable to my goals. There is so much that I want to do, that it’s not even funny. My mind is always running a thousand miles a minute. I want to raise kids that will be responsible citizens, and good people. I want to be able to do that by MY OWN ACTIONS. I want them to see what a true woman of GOD is like. I want to be financially responsible, I want to be a good friend, I want to grow, I want to know how to take care of myself physically, mentally, emotionally, I want to be a good steward to what HE has called of me.
Well this is a good list for you to see why I am even on here talking about anything. I have a voice just like you, we are all unique and should embrace that! What are you doing to hold yourself accountable to your dreams and goals, is there anything in your life that is causing you to hold back on your dreams and aspirations? I encourage you to be honest and transparent with yourself, so that you can move forward to be the person that GOD has called you to be. Sincerely,
