Happy Friday! I came to remind you that harsh words do hurt. Your words should be tasted before being spewed out of your mouth. I know they upset you and I know they crushed your feelings. However, how will you handle your words when uncomfortable situations arise? Will you respond in anger? Will you respond with gentleness? Your words have the ability to hurt or heal someone. Don’t become consumed by getting even that you wound the person you love. Don’t allow your emotions and/or feelings to cause you to seek revenge with your words. Be cautious of your words and how you respond. Your words can either calm the situation or add fuel to the fire. It’s okay to respond with gentleness. It’s doesn’t make you weak, it makes you thoughtful of what you say before you say it. Remember, you can’t take back words conveyed in anger. Choose your words wisely! Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday...Lady T
Happy Wednesday! Did their actions hurt you? Did their words wound you? Do you feel like you have suppressed your thoughts and feelings? Guess what......you may never erase the thoughts of the words they said or the things you witnessed with your eyes. However, there is something beautiful about moving forward. Don’t allow their actions to hold your mind and thoughts hostage.
My friend, I know it hurts, but you must move through the healing process. Holding the thoughts in your heart and mind will keep you paralyzed. It will not allow you to be free in your heart, in your thoughts and in your mind. I encourage you to start the healing process today. I encourage you to move and be released of the hurt and pain. Guess what? The person who hurt you has moved on, so it’s time for you to do the same. You may never get the truth. They may never apologize. They may never acknowledge their actions. They may deny everything that they did to you. Don’t allow them to tell you when it’s time to move forward, but you can’t stay there. Believe me, I know it hurts. It feels like they took your last breath and it feels like your heart is broken beyond repair. But there is healing on the other side of the pain.
You have to do the work necessary to get to the other side. When your mind starts to wander, replace those thoughts with what God’s word says about you. You are loved by God! He sees your heart and He cares about you! Don’t ever think you are in this journey alone. Know that God is with you every step of the way. Breathe, do the work, be free and be healed. The other side of this pain will be beautiful. For every tear you’ve shed, for every anxious thought, for every question you’ve asked yourself, for every time you’ve asked yourself why, God wants to give you beauty for ashes. He wants you to believe your journey will be beautiful again. You will be able to smile again, love again, breathe again and trust again! All of us have experienced hurt by those who we thought we never hurt us. Don’t cover up the wound with a bandage, because it could become infected. Infection leads to the wound spreading. My sister and my friend, God wants to heal you! I encourage you today to do the work that is necessary in your healing process. Choose to heal and choose to be free from the people, places and things that caused hurtful experiences. Have an amazing day and always remember that you are loved! Until Friday.....Lady T

Happy Monday! Didn’t you take a small step towards the finish line? Did you cheat yourself of the celebration? Don’t want until the big accomplishment, take time to celebrate the small accomplishments. Girl, there is no need to wait. Don’t become discouraged by the small victories. Every victory matter, every step counts and so, girlfriend, celebrate you! It’s okay to have your own private party. Make time to celebrate each accomplishment, whether others want to celebrate with you or you have to celebrate alone. Don’t minimize the small victories because the small victories propelled you to the big victory! Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday.....Lady T
Happy Friday! Are you hot-tempered? Or are you cool-tempered? Are you the one who starts the quarrel? Or are you the one trying to bring resolution to the quarrel? What is your temperament? I pray that you will not be seen or known as the hot-tempered individual. You should not take pride in being the one who is quick tempered, quick to say whatever comes out of your mouth and quick to do whatever to get even with others. The Lord reminds us that vengeance is His. The next time you are confronted and want to react remember this scripture. Remember that your temperament controls the situation.
If you are always known as the hot-tempered person, then it’s time to look in the mirror. Why do you have to respond in that manner? Why do you have to react? Why do you feel like you always have to react? It is better to be known as the cool tempered friend and not the hot-tempered friend. Hot tempered individuals are guided by their emotions. We all know that our emotions will cause us to react now and think later. Relying on your emotions is dangerous ground. Every reaction does not require a response and your clap back is not always needed. Remember, the way you carry yourself matters! Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday……….Lady T
Happy Wednesday! Do you realize that someone is walking around in pain? Do you realize someone is masking the pain? Do you realize someone is hiding the hurt with a smile? Do you realize someone feels like they are in this world all alone? But today, my sister and my friend, I encourage you to choose to be kind. Choose to be kind to your husband; choose to be kind to your children; choose to be kind to your parents; choose to be kind to your siblings; choose to be kind to your friends and choose to be kind to those who you come in contact with today.
Even the strongest person needs someone to be there for them. Some feel like they have to show up for life all alone, while breaking down on the inside; while hoping that someone would see their hurt; while hoping for someone to minister to their broken heart; while trying to find the courage to share their hurt; while waiting for someone to be their hand to hold, their shoulder to cry on and be their listening ear. Will you take the time to display kindness this week? I pray that you would choose kindness and be that hand to hold, be that shoulder to cry on, be that listening ear and most of all go to the Father in prayer for them and with them. Choose kindness. Have an amazing day and always remember that you are loved. Until Friday……….Lady T
Happy Monday! Girl, don’t become the woman who enjoys to see another lady down. Don’t be the woman who crushes her sister’s spirit while she is down. Be the woman who supports her sister in times of need. Be the woman who wants to see her sister excelling in every area of her life. Be the woman who wants to see another woman win! As woman, we carry so much and deal with so much. We are hard on ourselves and place unnecessary on ourselves. Encourage your sister win in every area of her life. Don’t allow others to speak negatively about your sister in your presence. Speak up for her, cheer for her and celebrate her victories! Girl, it’s our winning season! Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday....Lady T
It’s Your Faith!
Happy Friday! Do you still have faith to believe? Do you know that God can do it again? Has your faith been shaken? Do you believe that you can be healed of your affliction? There are times when we believe that our faith has been tested. But our Pastor always reminds us that a faith that can be tested, is a faith that can be trusted. The healing is connected to your faith; the blessing is connected to your faith; the thing you have been praying for is connected to your faith. My sister and my friend, your faith has made you well. Walk in peace and believe that you have been healed from your affliction. Your affliction may not always be physical condition, but the affliction can be anything that causes you suffering or pain. It is time activate your faith and be healed! Trust and believe that it’s already done. Your body is healed, your mind is healed and your Spirit is healed! Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday.......Lady T
Happy Wednesday! Will you choose to quit or will you keep pressing? Will you choose fear or will you fulfill your destiny? Will you continue to cry about it or will you dry your eyes and realize God has been with you the entire time? Will you choose to know your worth or will you continue to settle? Will you choose to stop at the roadblock or will you keep going and know it is was all part of the plan? Will you be in a hurry or will you sit still long enough for God to speak to you? Will you choose to give up easy or will you put in the work? Will you choose to complain or will you be grateful for what you have?
So many times, we choose to give up, quit and take the easy way out. Our speech is saying we refuse to give up, but our actions reflect a defeated person. I pray today that you would choose to fulfill your destiny; that you would choose to fight for your family; that you would choose to fight for your marriage; that you would choose to speak life to your children; that you would choose to run and complete your race; that you would walk in confidence; that you would remember that God promised to never leave nor forsake you; that you would choose to face every obstacle and fear; that you would choose life and not death and that you would choose to allow God to work in every area of your life. But, most of all, I pray that you would choose life! #thesunwillshineagain #justholdon #chooselife #betterdaysarecoming #beencouraged
Have an amazing day and always remember that you are loved! Until Friday........Lady T
Happy Monday! Do you remember the woman who you admired as a little girl? Do you remember what it was about her that caught your attention? In a world where some little girl is watching you, will you be that woman for her? Will you be willing to encourage her heart? Will you show up and support her? Will you be there cheering her on? Will you be there to celebrate her victories and encourage her heart through heartbreak? My sister and my friend, she is watching you. She in inspired by your walk, by your style and by your grace. Don’t become so consumed with you and your agenda that you don’t have time to help a little girl along life’s journey! Remember she’s watching! Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday.........Lady T
