Someone once said, "You are either, in trouble, going through trouble or coming out of trouble" I have found this to be true. Have you? Its always something! Every day on this planet presents us with troubles. These troubles present us with choices triggering changes for better or worse every singe day. Its weird, I sometimes don't know if those changes are going to help or hurt. Sometimes fear of the unknown is so strong that we don't do anything and hope that the trouble will just go away. News flash, doing nothing is a choice too. going forward I choose to take troubles head on and make changes with courage. Will you?
2018 is gone. I know some of you are saying thank goodness! 2018 is a year "I want to forget and put far behind me", right?!?! Trust me, I know how you feel. 2018 had many twists and turns, unexpected events, hardship, heartache and tears, if you are still breathing and reading this post, your right into 2019. So, what are you going to do? Are you determined to change the picture and find opportunity inside of hardship?
"Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the Word of God." Titus 2:3-5
Today I want to talk about the wondrous blessings of God. I don't have to wait for the "sweet by and by" God is working in my life right now.
My heart aches hearing the news of a vibrant young woman who committed suicide last week. Karyn Washington was just 22 and hosted a popular website called, “For Brown Girls” FBG and Dark Skin, Red Lip project. She was an active advocate for brown girls of all shades to feel beautiful about themselves and to embrace who they are.
