An Inability to Fail

Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-

Today’s post is one that I believe will be a source of encouragement for you all.  In life we make goals and derive steps and time markers to when we should have these goals accomplished.  Have you heard this one “I’m going to have this done by the time I’m 30” or “I’m 45 and I was supposed to have done this when I was in my 20s.” As humans we are creation so fascinated with the role of time- we equate our timing with failure and success.  We count our own selves out of things because we feel too young or old for a task.  God forbid we are a year late on our goals- we succumb to the feelings of failure and disappointment.

Did you know that God can’t fail?  He has an inability to fail.  That’s right- this is not a gimmick, this is totally true.  That being said, if the Holy Spirit lives inside of us ( 3rd part of God) and if we are living life through Him – theoretically we too have that inability to fail.  We can’t fail if we are being lead by the Spirit in everything that we strive to do.  How can fail if we are working with complete perfection?  If God is for us, who can be against us?  If God is working along side us, how can we fail?  In God’s will- there is an inability to fail.

We have to remember that God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts,,,His ways are not our ways and at the end of the day :God has a plan for our lives.  We must trust Him and realize that in Him is no failure!

Until next time,

Mo

I Love Me

Hello old friends, fellow bloggers and new followers-

Today has been an amazing day so far, I have no complaints.  As a college graduate (*pause* YAY!!!!!!!!), I know- you guys are happy for me :), I have spent the day in reflection mode- considering the important lessons learned.  The one thing I learned over the course of this school year and now as I transition into the summer, I learned to love me.  This blog is about God, love, relationships and life- but after all this time, I have finally learned to love me for me.  I learned to love all of myself; my flaws, weaknesses, strengths, beauty, intelligence, etc.  I learned to love me; with all my mess and mistakes, with the cracks and flaws, all of me.  This feeling is something that I can not even describe to you, it’s like the warmth of a good chocolate chip cookie- all ooey and gooey inside.  This love takes over and it heals, strengthens, and beautifies.  This love is one amazing love!

I learned that you can’t truly love someone else until you love yourself.  You can’t appreciate someone else’s beauty until you can appreciate your own and you can’t see goodness in others until you recognize the good that is within you.

By learning to love myself, I am now free to love someone else completely, and he is free to completely love me.  God is so amazing and His love is so right …it produces that ooey gooey feeling that is inside of our hearts and it’s warmth carries us even on the coldest of days.  Because I am loved by Him and He has placed His love inside of me, I can love someone with this warm type of love and feel no shame, guilt,or embarrassment.  Sometimes we feel guilty for indulging in this type of love , but at the end of the day- we don’t deserve this unconditional warm love but it is freely given to us and in return we should freely give it to another.

Now that I love myself, I won’t allow old insecurities to contaminate my love for another.  Now that I love myself, I won’t feel the need to validate myself through the love of another.  Now that I love myself, I won’t sabotage future relationships because I don’t think I deserve to be loved with the love of Christ – an unconditional, no strings attached type of love.  Now that I love myself, I can freely love someone else without the constant image of hurt and disappointment, replaying in my mind.  Because Christ loves me and I love me, now- I can love someone else!

 Until next time,

Mo

P.S. The one who wins my heart is going to love me for me….Afro and all lol. afro

It’s only the beginning!

Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-

As I sit in my room and begin to write to you, first off : I want to say thank you!  Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey that we call life.  Life is so full of wonderful people, places and things.  I appreciate everyone who takes time to reflect and journey with me.

Tonight, I wanted to reflect on something very dear to my heart. Let’s talk about beginnings.  I love beginnings, I love the idea of somethings being experienced during the mundane routines of life.  Beginnings have a tendency to excite me and scare me all the same time.  I’m excited for what’s to come but at the same time I am feeling apprehensive at facing something I’ve never experienced before. Do ya’ll feel that way sometimes? I have these mixture of feelings as I end one phase of life and begin another.  I love the idea of beginning something new but have a sense of apprehension because what I am about to walk into I don’t have a road map for, leaving room for mistakes.

Today I finished my undergraduate career at my university.  Graduation is in five days and I am feeling these mixture of feelings.  I am excited about what’s to come but at the same time apprehension is around the corner.  It is in these moments that I remind myself: This is only the beginning!  Sometimes we see transition as the end but in reality it is only the beginning; the beginning of something amazing to come .  This is only the beginning!

Embrace your dreams!  Change your future! Be who you want to be!  These are the words of wisdom I give to you.  This season of life is going to be amazing, live life to the fullest:) I love you all.

Until next time,

Mo
