Being a Christian isn’t easy….

This post is not to complain, because I LOVE my life in Christ. It’s to shed light on the simple truths that people may not tell you when you welcome salvation….

1. You lose people

You start falling in love with God, and sometimes you may be the only person for a while that is committing and one by one they all flee. When those people flee, God replaces them with incredible, God-fearing, world shakers that awaken something in you and causes you to be a better you.

2. Self-condemnation

You begin to feel guilty with every single thing you do, sometimes it’s hard to sleep because you can’t stop thinking about yesterday’s mistake, but in those moments God gently whispers in your ears “Christ died for you, so you can live. I LOVE YOU and nothing will ever change that.”

3. You have to reassess everything

You may have been going down a path that doesn’t align with the path that God uniquely created for you, so now you have to start from point A and figure it all out……..actually, you just start from where you are because God has it all already figured it out and He knew you would get to this point before you did.

You know now that I think about it being a Christian isn’t hard at all, life without God is hard. Waking up everyday relying on your strength, depending on your own schemes, self-soothing with temporary things. Been there done that and I wouldn’t trade my new found freedom with anything.

 

FOCUS.

Without a doubt, I believe that Christ is working through you to be the answer to a crying world.

BUT YOU HAVE TO STAY FOCUSED!

To think that the stranger you just walked by is waiting to hear your story and how God brought you through, but you’re distracted by pointless things.

We blame the enemy for illnesses, drugs, alcohol, basically items. Guess what the enemy is doing the most of, but you have no idea….DISTRACTING YOU!…..what?!

How many hours are you on social media? How many times do you put off something for tomorrow? How many times do you say I don’t have time?

If you’re on social media, use it to shed light. If you get that thing done today, you can do something totally different tomorrow and you would obviously have more time, if you stopped putting things off and prioritized.

This may be coming off harsh, but you’re SO VALUABLE to lives being changed for the better around the world, but you’re distracted by things that ultimately don’t matter.

This is the year for authenticity. Dive in and be uniquely you and most of all stay FOCUSED.

The Journey.

What does it take for you to move your feet?

What does it take for you to be bold and step out of the boat?

How many lives do you need to know are dependent on you walking in your God-given purpose?

We put a lot of stipulations on when, how, and where we are going to move when God instructs.

The author and finisher, we call Him.

The Alpha and Omega, we call Him……Yet, we are willing to walk in circles over and over again in order to fulfill what we deem is the right way.

I plead to you today to allow God to instruct your every move and TRUST that He will never leave or fail you. Learn from others mistakes. Don’t always wait for bad circumstances to learn the lesson. Let the Israelites motivate you……would you rather a 10 day journey or 40 years?! It’s up to you…..

PURPOSE.

As I sit behind this computer screen, I feel really nervous about what I am going to ask you…..let me just explain myself first.

Almost two years ago, I was sitting in my room with no purpose, rather sitting in my room and I wasn’t aware of my purpose. It’s completely frustrating to venture down all these roads and still feel empty and incomplete, knowing you’re not doing what you were birthed to do.

I finally had a conversation with God, being honest with myself I admitted to not having it all figured out. Several things were revealed to me in that moment, but there’s one particular thing I need your help with. God revealed that I would be creating a new line of Christian apparel, unlike anything else that currently exist(not knocking anyone, because they’re all awesome). Just the movement that would happen through the clothing that I would create. Here’s where you come in, I am currently in need of financial help to continue moving forward. I really want to avoid taking out any loans and I’ve hit a major roadblock with my finances.

I hear over and over again that the resources from God are right in front of us, but some are too scared to tap into those resources. So, here I am being bold and praying for a miracle. I’ve created a (click go fund me) GO FUND ME page with more info and I am asking for your DONATIONS. Even if you can’t donate PLEASE SHARE THIS BLOG and hopefully it will reach someone who feels led to donate to this. I can’t give out more info on the clothing until more things are copywritten, but trust me as soon as things start happening I will be sharing more and more. I am very excited for this new journey and I ask for your prayers of support and whatever you can donate to help me out.

Thank you beautiful people!! Have a blessed day.

Long Time.

Haven’t been on here for awhile :/

I made this blog with one purpose to give God glory. With that being said, I only want to say what He puts on my heart to say. A LOT of the time I feel like it’s not “blog-sized”enough, as far as length….but fret not!

There’s still a way to keep in touch with me AND most importantly, to get your daily dose of encouragement…….please feel free to follow me on twitter at www.twitter.com/wearurcrownblog….or search for me on twitter at wearurcrownblog

Feel free to leave your twitter names in the comments so I can follow you. This doesn’t mean I’ll be off the blog, I just want to feel led to do so.

Have a blessed day/evening…..TTYS !!

Perspective.

Maybe if we realized how BIG You are, we wouldn’t worry…

Perhaps if we believed that you do everything perfectly, we wouldn’t stress out….

If we reminded ourselves daily of how GOOD You are, we would trust You…..

If we understood that You have plans to prosper us and give us a future and a hope, we would have faith….

If we meditated on the FACT that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD, then we wouldn’t let temporary hard times crush us…..

Maybe, just maybe we could live a carefree life KNOWING that God’s got your back and wouldn’t allow anything to happen to you that He hasn’t already planned out a solution for……easier said than done?

It’s all perspective.

Choose the light, choose joy, choose peace, choose LOVE.

Prayer.

Praying for all the heavy hearts.

Praying for peace in your families and your homes.

Praying that God gives you the strength to finish this year strong.

Praying that he restores your faith, so you can run this race knowing that He’s got your back.

Praying that you prosper in all areas of your life.

Praying for those who have financial struggles, that God will open the window of Heaven and rain down blessings.

Praying for those who need healing in their body or for a loved one. God is the Doctor of all doctors and I declare by faith and in the name of Jesus that you are healed.

Praying for those who stopped believing and need God to show himself. I pray that He whispers to your heart and shows himself to You in a new and beautiful way.

I pray for all those dealing with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I pray in the name of Jesus that those chains be broken from your life right now. I pray that He sends you grace and peace to get through this,

I pray that as a community of beautiful spiritual beings that we love one another and be the light of the world.

I pray that God blesses you more than you know what to do with it.

About 3 months left in 2014 (that was soooo fast!!) FINISH STRONG, DON’T GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!
