Happy Monday! It’s time to start living your best life now. Do not allow life and circumstances cause you to miss out on enjoying the fullness of life. Some of us are merely existing and not living the life God has intended for us to live. I encourage you today to enjoy your life and start living your life. My sister and my friend, you only get one chance to live this life, so make the most out of it. It’s time for you to move on the peace and freedom that has been given to you by God! Girl, start living and stop merely existing! Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday.......Lady T
Happy Monday! It’s time to forgive you for the mistakes that you made and move on. It’s time to rid yourself of the guilt and the shame. Friend, you can’t continue to live in the past. You can’t continue to sit in that place. You must move forward and trust and know that you are forgiven. Yes, others may know what you did and yes others may remind you of what you did, but keep moving forward. Girlfriend, breathe and forgive yourself. You have so much living to do, but you keep allowing you from moving forward. I encourage you today to walk in the freedom and forgiveness that has been provided to you by God. My sister and my friend, you are forgiven! Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday.....Lady T
Happy Friday! We all have been down the path of extending forgiveness or in need of others forgiving us. I know the individual hurt you. I know the individual mistreated you. I know your feel justified in your actions of withholding forgiveness. I know you were upset when you said what you said. What happens when you offend others? What happens when you are in need of forgiveness? When you realize forgiveness is not for the other individual, but for you? When you realize that forgiveness does not make it okay for others to treat you the way they did, but extending forgiveness is the start of the healing process? I am not writing about anything that I have not had to experience myself. The scripture encourages us to be kind, tender hearted and forgiving one another as Christ has forgiven us. It doesn’t cost anything to be kind. It doesn’t cost us anything to be tenderhearted. It doesn’t cost us anything to extend forgiveness. I pray that we will realize that none of us are perfect. Just like we make mistakes, others will make mistakes too. I encourage you today to do the work necessary to move forward. If you need to extend forgiveness or in need of others forgiving you, I pray that you would begin the work to move forward. The next hour, minute or second is not promised. My sister, I know it may be easier said than done, but forgiveness is necessary for growth in the journey of life! Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday.......Lady T
I know that many of us are preparing for the Thanksgiving on Thursday. We have shopped and are ready to prepare a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. However, Thanksgiving this year will be different. The gatherings will be smaller. The food portion will be smaller. The desert table will be smaller. The aroma of food and the laughter of family and friends will not occur like times in the past. We will be taking our parents plates. We will not be able to eat together in large gatherings. Our normal gatherings look very different. However, we can maximize this moment and create new traditions.
We could eat together albeit via zoom. We can ensure our parents are taken care of, even if we cannot physically be with them in the same house. We can check on them and let them feel the love, even if it is from a distance. We can laugh and reminisce about the good times. We can pray that next year will be different. We can laugh a little louder and appreciate others more. We can ensure that our kids know that they are loved. We can love on and hold our spouses a little longer. We can ensure that even when life happens, we are there for each other.
We should be even more grateful for each other this year. At someone’s table this year will be an empty seat. That seat is vacant because that individual is no longer there. I pray for those families who have to deal with loss during this season. It’s so easy to take life for granted and assume that we will always be here with each other. I pray that God would strengthen and comfort them, during this holiday season.
I encourage you to be thankful and grateful for the family God has blessed you with. I encourage you to check on your parents to ensure they have an amazing dinner in spite of the current status of the world we live in. I encourage you to check on your parents a little more this year, especially if they are elderly and live alone. You may have extended family members and even friends who live alone. Check on them to ensure that have dinner. I pray this season that even if someone lives alone, they will feel the love of family and friends near and far.
We will get through this, but it’s better to get through this together. I encourage you to use wisdom this holiday season. I pray that you would stay safe and will have a great Thanksgiving. It’s so easy to complain that this season has been hard and our normal traditions have been disrupted. I would encourage you to think outside the box and create new traditions. I would encourage you to be there for someone this Thanksgiving. In a chaotic world, we all need a hand to hold and a shoulder to cry on. Will you be that person in this holiday season? Happy Early Thanksgiving! Until Friday…….Lady T
Happy Monday! In a world where, we feel unloved and rejected. In a world where, we gave our all only to be wounded. In a world where, we have created safeguards to protect our hearts and are timid about sharing our love. I came to remind you on this beautiful Monday morning, “Girl, you are loved!” I know you are saying, but Lady T I don’t feel loved. I know you are saying, I share my love and it is not reciprocated in the end. I want to assure you that you are loved! You are loved; You are important; You are the world to someone. But what you need to know is that God loves you! You can be assured that HE has always loved you and will continue to love you. HIS love does not change and HIS love is not based on conditions or what you can do for HIM. God’s love is genuine. HE loves you regardless of your mistakes, failures, faults and issues. Even if you wondered this morning, does anyone truly love me? Trust and know that you are loved by God! HE is proud of you; HE sees what you are doing and HE loves you! No need to doubt or wonder, if you are loved. No need to feel like a castaway. No need to walk around with a bowed down head. My friend, please always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday......Lady T
Happy Friday! I know some of you today may ask yourself, “what’s so happy about today?” Some will say you don’t know how I feel. Some will say I gave my all only to have my heart broken. Some will say my heart is so heavy that I cried all night long. Some will say that I am glad this week is over. My sister and friend, I came to encourage your heart today. There is assurance in knowing that God sees your broken heart and the wounds that you hide from others daily. God wants to heal your broken heart and nurse your wounds. It’s okay to take the tough girl or strong girl persona off. It’s okay to rest and know that God wants to take care of you. HE is concerned about your heart and your wounds. Allow God to heal what only HE can heal. Allow God to nurse the wounds that are leaking. Allow God to minister to you today! HE is waiting to do the work, but HE needs to you know that HE will not break your heart and dig into your wounds like others have. My sister, it is my prayer that you would allow God to mend what man cannot! Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday.......
If I Never..............
If I never experienced heart break, I would not have known God as a Heart Fixer;
If I never experienced sickness, I would not have known God as a Healer;
If I was never lost, I would not have known God as a Savior;
If I never experienced the possibility of my womb being barren, then I would not have known God as a Miracle Worker;
If I never knew what is was like to be without, then I would not have known God as a Provider;
If I never experienced loneliness and loss of a loved one, I would not have have known God as a Comforter; If I never experienced friends walking away, I would not have known God as a Friend;
If I never experienced that life could be chaotic, I would not have known God as the Prince of Peace;
If I never experienced being down, I would not have known God as Joy;
If I never experienced feeling overwhelmed, I would not have known God as a Sustainer;
If I never allowed my thoughts to overtake me, I would not have known God as a Mind Regulator;
If I never admitted that I was weak, I would not have known God to give me strength for the journey.
Thank you, God, for these experiences! These experiences caused me to seek your face even more. These experiences caused me to want to know you more. These experiences caused me to read my Bible more. These experiences caused me to pray more. These experiences caused me to realize that I am not exempt from life occurring. These experiences caused me to trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not unto my own understanding. These experiences cause my eyes to be open wider. Even when life happens, please remember HE will be everything that you need! Have an amazing day and always remember that you are loved! Until Friday......Lady T
Happy Monday! Are you still wondering when will it happen? Do you still believe that God can? Girlfriend, I came to encourage your heart today. Don’t ever forget that God is the one who makes all things possible. The marriage, the children, the promotion, the house and so much more are all blessings from God. You must know that yes, your dreams are still possible, when God is placed first in everything that you say and do. My sister and my friend, I pray that you will still believe that God can and God will! So, this week I encourage to still believe and to still write your dreams and goals. Remember, with God ALL things are possible. Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday......Lady T
Happy Friday! Have you ever had to wait for something? Have you stood all night long in a Black Friday line to wait on one item? What happened when you waited all night long and the store still did not have the item? I am amazed that we will wait for an item all night long, but we are impatient when the Lord does not respond like we want HIM. HIS timing is perfect! HIS will is perfect! Our job is to wait, be courageous and HE will strengthen our hearts. I don’t know what you are waiting on, but I do encourage you to wait on the Lord! The Lord has never let you down before. Instead of rushing the will of God for your life, trust that HE knows what HE is doing! Trust that it will be worth the wait! Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday.....Lady T
