Be still and know that I am God…peace in the midst of a storm

This made my heart smile…though this cat’s surrounding seems evidently chaotic and filthy…he sleeps peaceful with grace among the ruins of life…Don’t let your situation define who you are or better yet how you behave. God is always in control. God is truly good.

2 of 5 day Internal Cleanse!!

Hello fellow bloggers,

So today was day 5 of my nine days internal colon cleanse and day 2 of not eating any food. Just drinking my toxin cleanser every 3 hours for 5 times for the next 3 days. Yesterday was o.k, had a few minor headaches here and there and my body was just pretty much trying to adjust to not being fed..Today I woke up a bit energized, but still just a tad bit sluggish. Through this whole process my ultimate goal is to draw closer to God and for my body to give him glory. One of my favorite songs right now is “Happy” by Tasha Cobbs.

This song has pretty much been my anthem all week and it lifts my spirit every single time I hear it. It goes a little something like this:

You make me happy
You make me whole
You take the pain away
I’m so in love with you

Everything about you is right
It covers all my wrong
YOUR LIFE SAVED MY LIFE. With you is where I belong

YOUR LIFE SAVED MY LIFE! Hope deep is that one line. Jesus came to give us life, and not just life….but his words says this, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”. John 10:10

Don’t let unhealthy food, diet , habits destroy your purpose of having a long healthy and prosperous life that our King promised to us…don’t get caught up in wanting to go to heaven before your time, fulfill His promise here on earth first! So convicted of this here truth. Today I’ve chosen LIFE!

This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live- Deuteronomy 30:19

First day of my internal cleanse using blessed herbs started TODAY!

So I’ve decided that before I started my new journey has a vegetarian that I would do an internal cleanse. After researching I decided to try Blessed Herbs internal cleanse, which I began today with the colon cleanse! So far, so good. Since I prepped my body two weeks in advance by my portion of food intake and control my various cravings. The first day has been really a piece of cake. Except for me trying to swallow two pills, which I never enjoyed doing…errrrrrr!
First day is mainly trying to reduce your appetite level and preparing for the 5 day liquid fast. Today I had an organic apple for breakfast. Porridge for lunch and a toss salad for dinner. Right before dinner I had to take the digestive stimulator(my number was two). Everyone has a different number calculation of how many pills to take. Then an hour before bed I have to take 1 packet of the toxin absorber. My intake of water was on point today. Definitely exceeded the suggested 6-8 glasses! Yea me.
In concluding today was a good day…already feeling so much in tune with the Holy Spirit. All glory be to God.

I easily release that which I no longer need. The past is over and I am free.- Louise Hay

Taking back my health!

Words of confession lead to possession.

I wouldn’t say I’m overweight, but certainly not at my best health-wise. I dislike exercising. I love love eating, and this is where the problem began. I’ve always been able to eat every and anything and not gain a pound. But that was when I was younger and my metabolism was much faster. But years have changed all that.

In order for me to give God my complete best, I need to be in the best shape of my life at all times. I need to consume better food and treat my body like the temple that it is. After all the Holy Spirit does reside there. Cleanliness is next to Godliness, and although I certainly pride myself on being a neat freak and an overall clean person. I CANT IMAGINE WHAT MUST BE LIVING INSIDE ME, from all the garbage I’ve been disposing in my body. I have to stop making excuses and start controlling my horrible eating habits in order to bring glory to God in the way He has purposed me to do so. After all he wants me to have life and to have it more abundantly.

What would be the purpose of claiming my inheritance if I won’t be alive long enough to live it through. Now yes, don’t get me wrong tomorrow is not promised to no-one. But I sure want to be ready for tomorrow when it comes!  I’m not naive to think I will live the years Methuselah lived, but I would like to live a life feeling healthy. It is not how long you live, but how you feel while you’re living. My mentor has been a great influence in this revelation for me and she shared with me an amazing book to help me through. Titled, ” Satan, I’m taking back my Health!-by Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu” . A very powerful and informative tool so far in my journey. I was fearfully and wonderfully made and I can definitely see why the devil wouldn’t like that at all.

We receive new blood every 90 days, yet God’s everlasting grace is at our fingertips everyday. How amazing is His might and wonders! Being a vegetarian, vegan etc doesn’t make us healthier than thou and since God gave us all a free will to eat and do as we please. I believe that at the end of the day he really only wants us to, ” eat that which is good”, Isaiah 55:2. Use the Holy Spirit to help us to discern what is really best for us. What route is going to get us the best and healthiest results possible for each of our different unique body structures. Also lets not confuse being healthy as being thin or skinny.

There’s so many questions to ask yourself at the beginning of any new journey. But referencing back to the book, one particular question the author ask was, ” when people look at your body, do they see God” . My mentor advised me to take it deeper and ask myself when I look at my body without clothing do I see God? The author reminds us that our body is a temple. We were bought with a price. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice for us. The least we could do is when people see us they see God. How profound is that!

Growing up and remember going days without food. To now having the luxury of having way too much food, as been my way of allowing the devil to lie to me and whisper sweet nothings in my ear. “Oh go ahead and eat all you can, by the way don’t let it go to waste”, ” Oh darling just one more bite”, “You can fill your plate with twice the portion, why not you can afford it” . All those thoughts were deceptive lies that kept me bondage and a slave to my stomach. Now I’m aware that Hey that happened to me and now I’m a better person for it. I’m more grateful for small things and less wasteful with things I don’t really need.

My addiction with overeating food has ended! Balance is the key to life and I will start with this. Through this journey of self discovery for my health I’ll be seeking the Holy Spirit more than ever, Scriptures and prayer. I’m sure gonna need it all. My addiction was overeating food. Choose LIFE over your addiction of caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, cocaine, sex, lies, etc . Be blessed.

Broke up with Procrastination and boy was he upset!

So today I concluded that I’ve had way too much pregnancies and not enough fulfilled births of my dreams, visions and ideas. I’ve sadly went through way more abortions. I simply blamed this all on my ex-friend, “Procrastination”. He lied to me with dreams of just taking my time and letting my life just flow! That everything would be o.k, just sit back and wait. His close friend doubt always tagged along and made every word he said more true for me. They made my life a bit easier, less worrying and less time to take heed to my priorities. I don’t believe in having abortion with a real child, with life. Yet my life was constantly in the clinic. No care in the world. I’ve learnt this, if I choose not to birth the purposes God has given me. I will be sure to see someone else living out the blessings that was intended for me and the ones I care about! So far beyond myself, I decided for those who believe in me to let our friendship go. To move forward with a brand new attitude and brand new friends, Faith, Hope and Victory! Procrastination hasn’t taken this news so well and with his ingenious plan he came up with this, crashing my computer. Due to all the time spent with him, I haven’t backed up all my latest photos to my hard drive. So bye bye awesome shots! I felt crushed at first. My pictures are all like my kids, my heart shattered. But joy cometh through the grace of God and my husbands comforting words. So good try ex-friend, but this ride is over. I shall create even more beautiful memories and capture the essence of Christ better than I have before. He is that Great! I am ready Lord to have has many births as you have sown your seeds in me. Pregnant with all your wondrous purpose and can’t wait to see your glorious delivery of the manifestation of your truth being seen in my life. Thank you Jesus in advance.

Photo shoot in Jesus’ Promise Land

After a long and awesome day and the beach with my girls, while strolling home we came across a cute little garden and what I found in there was magical. It ignited in me the passion I have for photography and I was excited  and honored to be their photographer. Even though they had made no prior bookings. I agreed with them my fee would be priceless! Because simply being in His presence was enough!

So they agreed to the photo-shoot and gave me a tour in His Promise Land….Take a walk with me:) Take everyday to enjoy even a second of life…The beauty we can find in it is truly priceless. God is good and knows what we want, exactly when we need it. I needed this reminder of his promise to me, of his undying love for me, of his Grace towards me.

RAINBOW—-WHAT IT MEANS TO ME!!!!

Scientifically:

A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines on to droplets of moisture in the Earth’s atmosphere. It takes the form of a multicolored arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.

TO THE WORLD:

Rainbow tends to be used as a sign of a new era, of hope, or of social change. Recently in the 1970′s a rainbow flag was used to represent pride flag, LGBT pride flag or gay pride flag,  a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT. It originated in California, but is now used worldwide

The six-colour version of the pride flag is the most commonly used version. The original version from 1978 had two additional stripes — pink and turquoise — which were removed due to manufacturing requirements.

 

TO ME:

It’s simply just a reminder first and foremost of God’s beautiful “GRACE”. Of his love and mercy. OF HIS RETURN!!!! The rainbow is God’s sign that out of His mercy, He is withholding His just judgment. The day will come when the Lord Jesus Christ will return to judge a sinful and fallen world such has the one we are now living in. It’s a reminder that he will not consume this world again with a flood, but with fire. It reminds me of the Grace God as given us through Christ Jesus to accept him has our Lord and Savior before this faithful day come to pass

THE WORD TELLS US:

“And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.” (Genesis 9:12-13)

The rainbow symbolized God‘s mercy and The Covenant He made with Noah (representing mankind) not to destroy the world in such a way again. (WITH FLOOD)

CONCLUSION: Regardless of your sexuality, your religion, your choices in life, this is from the very word of God, His Holy Bible. Has Christians we don’t own what God gave to us…we are just sitting back and letting everything be taken from us. The rainbow represents God in all his glory for me. Not someone’s sexual preference. I will not teach my child about the rainbow from the world’s perspective, but rather from God’s promises. This is not a gay bashing post. I do not “hate” gay people, I DO HOWEVER HATE THE SIN. Again just going by the word of God, just so happens my conviction is greater than my own opinion.

I STAND FOR CHRIST AND HIS PROMISE IN HIS BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW-

IF I DON’T STAND FOR HIM, I’LL FALL WITH THE WORLD ….
