Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers- 

Have you ever heard the voice of God so clearly, it stopped you in your tracks?  I mean one of those moments when God speaks so profoundly to your spirit, you don’t know whether to cry, dance, jump up and down- just shook? Well… friends, I had one of those moments today.  It was so loud like a blaring microphone, yet so small and still.  It was in this moment that I heard these three words: “It will happen.”  I don’t know about you guys, but the Enemy has been busying speaking lies to me concerning the promises of God.  He’s spent the last few years casting doubt like seed into my heart based on this waiting period I’ve been in, as well as other factors of fault on my part (sin), telling me that God is not going to do what He promised.  He’s even told me that I’ve messed up my chances of receiving what God had for me based upon my past, but he is a liar… the promises of God over my life and yours will happen!

The Father wanted me to encourage someone today and let them know that whatever he has spoken, promised or shown via dream/vision- he is faithful to make that thing happen.  Time has no power over the promises of God.  Circumstance has no power over the promises of God.  People have no power over the promises of God.  Since God is not a liar and He is always good even when we are not good- He keeps his Word!  I’m reminded of the story of Noah who for 120 years, preached that it would rain to the magnitude of a flood on the earth.  For 120 years, he preached the same sermon and people around him thought he was crazy; they made fun of him, counted him out to look like a religious fool, but Noah, believed that he heard the voice of God and kept preparing for rain.  It took a long time, but after awhile raindrops began to descend on the earth and those that mocked Noah were banging on the door of the ark begging to be saved.  The Father encourages you to know that those who counted you out, those that told you that your dream would never happen, that things would never change- those will be the same individuals that will witness God’s word come to pass in your life.

I know it’s been a long time and doubt has crept in but I come to speak truth and clarity to your situation- everything that God has spoken concerning you will happen.  Period.  Be encouraged, hope and joy is here!

“For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return there without saturating the earth  and making it germinate and sprout,  and providing seed to sow and food to eat, so My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.” Isaiah 55:10-11 NLT

Until next time,



Now That I Know

I think we all have misunderstandings

moments of doubt

I think we all have sad times

moments when we pout

But I have come to the understanding

that I rather live happy with a smile on my face

than to walk around with my head held down

allowing guilt and shame in my space

I don’t have time for questions or concerns

only for certainty

and as I walk through life

now that I know the reason for you and me

We were designed for a greater purpose

one that we don’t really understand

but the power of our love

will touch every woman, every man.

Now that I know what the struggle was all about

I now know the reason for the pain

I won’t give up on what we have

knowing that there is a greater reward to be gained

Those who endure to the end

will receive a crown of life

I plan to endure in this love

a midst the chaos and strife

And I now know

without a shadow of a doubt

that the definition of true love

is what we’re all about

if you looked in a dictionary

and searched the word “love”

you’d see a picture of you and me

hand in hand, smiling at the sky above

We are the epitome of this word

a four letter word shared between you and me

we are the definition of love

we are the definition of free

So I’m not allowing anything 

to stand in our way 

I’m not allowing old demons and insecurities

to come and steal our hearts away

I’m not allowing the opinions of others

to cloud my judgment of you

I won’t be that girl living in confusion

when she already knew

knew who she was supposed to be with

with whom she would spend the rest of her life

knew the last name that was hers alone

knew whose she would be called wife

I won’t be her

that girl being played by her emotions

with someone not destined for her

drowning in a lovesick ocean

now that I know

I believe with all my heart

that our love was designed to bring us together

like a priceless work of art

This poem “Now That I Know” reflects on my own understanding of love and in particular meeting my “soul-mate”.  I think so many of us meet the love of our lives but sacrifice that love for things that aren’t important.  We allow doubt, insecurities, past issues and etc. to rob us of some of the best love stories we have ever known.  It’s like this is a “too-good to be true” complex, since we don’t believe that we can be happy and meet people designed for us- we allow anything to rob us of that God-given love.  I’m at the place in my life, where I am not allowing anything to cause me to give up on the greatest love I’ve ever known.  First the love given to me by God and then the love given to me by the one He has designed for me.  When you come to a place of certainty, you’re not quick to give up and throw in the towel…you do whatever you can to hold on to that thing that is good for you.  Don’t give up, endure even until the end.  Some are not going to agree with the person God designed for you, but continue to love that person  with everything.  I hope each of you are having a great Monday and if you ever want to talk, just email me at

Until next time,

Mo 🙂

I Just Don’t Know

I used to have all the answers

About how I felt about you

But, now I’m speechless…

I just don’t know

I used to be so clear

Clear about you

But, now no words come….

I feel stuck in the middle

Of speech and silence

Of happiness and anger

Of certainty and doubt

I just don’t know

To hear that you dream of me

The same way I dream of you

To hear that you think of me

As much as I think of you

To hear that I’m in your heart

The same way you’re in mine

My mouth is vacuum-sealed shut

Afraid that if I open my mouth

Things will change

You’ll decide otherwise

Because for the first time in my life

I have to decide whether it’s right

To love you again

To keep you at arm’s length

To allow between us more distance

And to tell you the truth

I’m no longer confident

That if I follow my heart

It won’t lead me astray

My gut failed me before

When it gambled on you

So now what?

What should I do?

I just don’t know….
