Article: Flood of Aberrant Doctrines Endangering True Faith

It’s June!

These first six months have flown by!

LOL, it brings so much more truth and relevance to Ephesians 5:16

“Redeeming the time, because the days are evil”

I received this article today another great and informative read.

Another reminder of why it is essential for us to be ob our spiritual

P’s & Q’s.

I pray that God makes us more aware of our “surrounding” and more sensitive to the things of the spirit. It is a dangerous thing not to be prophetic, it is a dangerous thing not to know that you too can hear from God and it is a dangerous thing not know the voice of the Lord.

I pray that He (God) reveals to all of us how He communicates with us and the we get used to it and that we are able to recognize Him.

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”

John 10:27

3 Awards: Shine on, One Lovely Blog, Blog of the Year 2012

Lovely Blog Shine onblog of the year

It has been almost a year (next month) that I will have been blogging for ONE YEAR! I shared with one of my blogging buddies Naphtali that I have enjoyed these past months so much! I enjoyed just being able to brain dump when others don’t want to listen LOL …. and then having an awesome blogging community that is here to read it all!

I am kind of proud in the fact that I only missed one month! Sounds weird but just to only miss one month out of twelve is good in my opinion.

So anyway, I found out that my blogging buddy had nominated me for 3 awards!

Shine On

One Lovely Blog

Blog of the Year 2012

… and I can say I am truly humbled and honored to receive such! I pray this blog is blessing to all of my followers and to those who are just passing by!

The Lovely Blog Award asks each nominee to write 7 interesting things…

1. I am a lefty

2. My favorite scripture in the bible is Deuteronomy 23:12

12 Designate a place outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself. 13 As part of your equipment have something to dig with, and when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement. 14 For the Lord your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you.

** I could not believe God talked about Doo-Doo in the camp**

3. You cannot catch a cold from going outside with no coat on

4. My husband is a lefty

5. Our middle child is a lefty

6. I love playing the Sims 3 .. (my secret addiction)

7. Being up insanely high makes the bottom of my feet hurt


Now I have the honor of nominating some of my fellow bloggers for these three wonderful awards …


and the nominees are …




I nominated these two women of God not because I personally know them but because they are young and on fire and truly not ashamed of the gospel. They inspire me to be the best I can be. I love them and Congrats Ladies

OH and I cannot forget a BIG THANK YOU to all of my followers … for those who have just joined me in this journey and for those who have been here from the very beginning … THANK YOU!!!

God Bless and Happy Blogging!

Committment and Consistancy …

So, it has been a little over a month since I have last posted. I logged on randomly because I noticed I needed to update my profile in the about section.

I read it and first had to question ” … am I still 28?” .

Then I pondered “…are my children still 7 and 5.”

Lastly, I asked myself  ” … are we still residence of Virginia?”

Then I went and checked my views and saw that people still peep in to read my posts. I was blown away.

Then a slight conviction set in … because I do believe I have the best group of followers there could be and the list is constantly growing.

I also remember telling my husband that I was going to post every month until 2013. I was excited I had found something I really liked and enjoyed. I was given the oppurtunity to meet other new believers and make some really good friends in the process and some in particular who I almost consider family!

Then what is really crazy is that in the past 3-4 months my family and I have experienced so much. Some of it good some it not so good … but I can say that whatever was meant to harm us God certainly did turn it around for our good.

What didn’t kill us and take us out has certainly made us stronger; as individuals and as a unit.

So, thank you all for remaning consistant when I have not!

Everything that you truly love and care strongly about will require a deep level of consistancy and committment. Do not expect for something to grow and flourish if you have not been committed and consistant.

Every business, every friendship, every marriage, every dream, every goal requires some level of commitment and consistancy.

A price.  A cost. A sacrifice.

Are we really willing to pay the cost?

And I am not just talking about being a “successful” blogger .. but any area in your life that you want to see come to fruition, any areas where you want to see change.

 Are we really willing to pay the cost. And are we really willing to make the committment of  “for better or for worse”. The committment of we will ride this thing out until we see change?

Are we willing to put in the consistency to work this thing out until something breaks?

We have all been at the point and some of us are like … “I have been doing this same thing for years something has got to give.”

Anyway,  I totally just went off on some type of rant.

Just work it until it works. LOL


Love yall … God Bless


Happy Blogging

Long Time No Read ….

Hey my fellow bloggers!!

I know… I know. Long time no read.

Well, I am back and I have missed you guys so much and just sitting down and brain dumping on everyone!

Basically, I have a lot of catching up to do.

My family and I have experienced so much in this past month … we have celebrated and rejoiced as well as cried together.

But I do have a lot of catching up to do … I pray that you guys will continue to be patient with me lol as I do this. I also pray that our stories, our lives, our victories, our bumps and bruises ..

.. our testimonies will give you hope and help you overcome anything you may be facing.

Our God is faithful!

Love you guys and God Bless.  

Be Strong and Very Courageous

Good Morning.

I am once again very excited. I am excited about what God is doing in this season in the lives of His people and within the body.

I am excited because our God reigns supreme. He is a God that is concerned about His children and He is a God who does not sit afar off from us off but is a very active influence within our lives and those connected.

I am excited because He is truly living and Jesus lives and reigns with Him in the heavenly’s and He intercedes on my behalf and I am excited that the Holy Spirit has come to teach us all things and guide us into all truth.

I am excited because the same spirit that dwells in me has come directly from my Father and that we all have been made in His likeness.

I am thrilled because Jesus rose with all power in His hands.

I am thrilled that all his thoughts towards us are good and none of evil.

I am thrilled that we serve a Mighty God; that is not like man that He should lie and none of His words that go forth return to Him void. All of the promises of God are “Yea and Amen”.  

He is ever-present and very real to me.

Please, never doubt the validity of our Great God.

I mean before I even really knew who God was before I came into the understanding of who Jesus Christ was and what He did and what He will do; I had dreams of  Him coming back  .. of His return.

I would have these dreams in great and full detail that I still remember till this day. He showed Himself to me at a young age and I always walked around anticipating His return for His own.

So, a while ago I found myself doubting God’s existence. Even after hearing and knowing God had promises for my life, after accepting Jesus Christ into my heart, baptised and Holy Ghost filled … LOL I still doubted.

And it came to me one day … that all those dreams I had of Jesus Christ returning and being able to line them up almost to a “T” with the word and then thinking back to how I thought getting into heaven was just a simple as saying “please” and “thank you” at the correct time and doing that “one good deed a day” thing.

How could I dream of something I know nothing about and with accuracy. It was not of my own doing but Gods.

I realized at that moment that His hand was upon my life then and still is now … even the more. And as His hand was and is upon my life … His hand is upon your life.

This is totally not what I had in mind for this post … LOL … but its all good. So just to line this up with my title … I will say to all of you whether you have been in this walk for years or for those who may have just begun.

Be Strong and Very Courageous, follow the spirit of God and go where ever He leads you. Know that He will never lead you into temptation and evil, for every good thing comes from God. Serve Him diligently and stay humble.

… and my daughter favorite scripture when she was younger

“Obedience is better than Sacrifice”

Also know that the perfect work He has begun in you .. .He will complete until the return of Jesus Christ.

He is faithful and He will do it.

All He requires of us is to just …


.. and if any of us lacks wisdom we can go to Him who freely gives.

God Bless.


Oh, Before I go …

Well, the day in the office is just about over for me. I am preparing myself for another weekend. I guess?

Just real quick … choose your friends wisely. Watch their habits and study their character. If they do shady things to other people who they claim to be their friend … then more than likely they do it to you.

And if for some odd reason they are really honest to you and not the other then .. they need to stop lying to that other person and they need to let them go LMBO.

Alright, those are my words of wisdom for the evening. I pray that you all have a wonderful, safe and blessed weekend.

Pray hard, worship hard, fight hard and love harder for love covers a multitude of sins.

And real quick I want to say Welcome to all of my New Followers! I am glad you are “here” with me … please feel free to comment and I am always up for good meaningful conversation.

If you can’t take anything edifying, if you cannot learn from it, if it leaves you drained and empty and feeling vexed and bothered then leave it exactly where it is.

Oh and don’t take advice from lazy people.

Have a Blessed Weekend …


Happy Blogging
