If you are thinking, “umm, what is she talking about…a God encounter?” I want you all to know that God still speaks to us today just like he did to the people you read about in the bible, it didn’t all of a sudden stop when the bible was published. We can have as much of Him and hear as clearly as we set our channels on His channel.
One of my best friends told me once, “You’re kind of a control freak.” Embarrassingly enough, I have to admit there is some truth in that statement. I am a type A, oldest child and my natural tendency is to try to direct my life so it will go my way, on my timetable, and involve only the people who I want in it. My whole life, I have felt God chipping away at my stubborn, “I want it my way” nature, and the more He has broken me of it, the more cooperative I have become, but boy has it been a humbling process. I have realized more and more how that feeling of control is merely a false sense of security, rooted in my own selfish desires and ambitions.
You are a free-spirit and that won’t change much. Some people will call you naive, and that won’t change much either, but it’s exactly that which enables you to take big leaps of faith.
Growing up if you would have told me I was going to be a bully I would have never believed you! If you would have told me I would have used words like, “you’re fat, you’re ugly and you’re stupid” I would have never believed it!
When I first moved from Georgia to Hollywood, I had no idea what to expect. But, I was excited because for the first time since I was thirteen, I was going to be living with my older sisters, Angel and AnnaLynne McCord. I was thrilled! When I arrived to Hollywood, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, my sister’s career as the star of …
So how do you get through this quarter life crisis of “what am I doing with my life?” It is something so simple it will blow your mind.
Why must she be so…
She’s only as perfect as you make her to be in your mind. Aye, yes, read that again. She’s only as perfect as you make her to be in your mind.
Your lack of employment is not a result of a fragile economy. It is not a reflection of the connections you don’t have or an industry that is difficult to break into.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against.” Ephesians 6:12 Growing up, I learned about the devil and that his name is Satan. I knew he was the antithesis of God and probably wore a black cloak decked out in red horns. That …
Since God revealed deeply rooted patterns I had developed, I could see that they
were not actually meant, designed and created to be there by His plan. It gave me the freedom to see that I really am worthy and meant for love, meant for a covenant marriage and meant to master love, patience, confidence, peace & joy, and then to receive and walk into all of his blessings and promises.
It can be really easy to know something with our mind, to hear the same encouraging scriptures over and over and over again. So why isn’t it taking root? Why do we still feel depressed or trapped?
I am mad at God. I am mad at the things that have been happening in my life. I am mad that nothing is changing. Most of all, I am mad that God thinks I deserve this. I’m mad that the one that got away, after ten years of friendship, got engaged and eloped within a few weeks without so …
