God’s Hints

Sometimes we get so discouraged on the gifts that we carry. Many times we believe maybe it’s all in our head or maybe our gift is not necessarily a gift from God. Discourage have killed businesses, torn degrees, and even ruin lives. But your gift from God should make you happy and give you purpose. Something that when you speak about it butterflies run around your body, then all of  a sudden you get a warmth feeling of comfort because it’s your calling. That’s how I feel about writing.

Recently there has been a gap in my writing because of midterms and I felt bad about that. However, during midterms one of them consisted of a written response that had to be about 3 or 4 pages long. This portion brought me a sense of ease because writing is something that I’m passionate about.

Now a week has passed and its defiantly time for me to blog again yet I still couldn’t grasp that drive that use to always be inside of me until I received my grade and professor response from the midterm paper.

An extremely well organized, developed, and written response paper. Probably one of the best I have read to date. I most especially appreciated you sharing your experiences in working as a Patient Assess Rep, and your reference to your company offering an EAP for their employees and loved ones.

Please let me know if I can use your paper as an example with future classes. If so, please communicate back via email with attaching your paper again to the message.

Most impressive

It’s possible that she may have said nice things to all her students. Still, this meant a lot to me because I began to feel discouraged before receiving this response. However, when the Lord has a plan over your life and your gift he will send these reminders of who you are. It’s important that we take these hints and reminders from God and don’t take it in vain.

I don’t know who is reading this or if this message meant anything to you. But the Lord told me to write it as a hint for YOU, to keep pursuing your gift in the Lord’s name. You will be victorious!

Habakkuk 2:3

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end – it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

Glitter

Social media is cliché. It’s a pretty cliché wrapped with a bow, sprinkled with glitter – that is believed to be gold. But yet, powerful enough to destroy families, end relationships, and tarnish reputations. We live in a generation that can read something on social media and presume it to be true under any bias! What happen to our education?

I’ve learned people get caught up in the hype of social media simply because it has the power to capture everything that person wants you to see. Their best clothes, best pictures, and assume their life to be perfect. Then misinformed individuals will  compare their relationship to a “social media relationship” and lose a real person based off of an illusion that the internet has given them.

Everything that glitters isn’t gold!

Never lose your authenticity for anyone or anything. Life isn’t about filters or tags. It’s about being true to yourself and who you’re called to be. Trying to keep up with social media, you will always feel like your losing a race that never began.

Proverbs 18:1

Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment.

Valentines

This is a very exciting time of the year for people to spend time with their sweetheart. For me Valentine’s Day is also my middle son Amir’s birthday! Of course I would have loved to spend the day getting pampered by my husband, but I had to make sure my son feels as special on his day as he is to me. In my household we take birthdays very seriously so Valentines meant that my Prince received everything he wanted and more. However, towards the end of the day it became a hassle. Amir wanted to go home and play with his toys but I kept thinking of things we could do to make the most of his birthday. He already had his party with cake and ice cream, spent time with his friends, so it isn’t that he wanted more…. more so that I did. My husband kept asking what did I want to do later that night but all I could think about is Amir. So actually spending time with my husband on sweethearts day never registered in my head and this is because I didn’t balance it correctly.

Being a wife and a mother can be hard to juggle. If too much attention is given to your children your husband starts to feel alone and vice versa. Why couldn’t I have went home called a baby sitter and went out with my husband? Would that have been too much to ask?

Too often we get caught up on what we feel is right instead of what is actually the right thing to do. I should have shown my son the best birthday and showed my husband that on this sweethearts day he is my ultimate Valentine, choosing my time wisely and balancing my scale evenly.

Remember show endless love and prayer works!

Ephesians 5:15             

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,

Let’s be Like Nike

We get these ideas in our head of how successful women should be. I have to make a lot of money, I have to be a great mother, I have to be a wife and in the mist of all this follow my dreams! Talk about a lot being on your plate. Its hard but it’s actually harder when you think about it. I noticed that when I think about everything I have to do for the day it drains me before my day even get started.

So let’s be like Nike and “JUST DO IT”.

Get on a schedule and get committed. If you have to work a 9-5 like me go to work  and be amazing while at work. But once you leave work, actually leave work! Don’t take your work home… that’s why its called home. When you walk into your home… clear your mind so that your children and family become something you look forward to instead of anxiety. Anxiety is real and when you have a family that needs your attention it goes on TEN.

Next, chasing your dreams in the mist of work and family is a must. Because like dreams if you keep going on with your life it will fade away. Your free and personal time should consist of following your dreams even if that’s school or your passion.

So make a schedule, do it and don’t think about it!

Understand that nothing worth fighting for will be easy and prayer works.

2 Timothy 4:3

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but have itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,
