You Are Not Them

Happy New Year to all my followers. I know some of you may be getting back from vacation, continuing class, or going back to work. I hope that you all enjoyed yourself. Today’s topic got me, I know some of you may or may not relate to this topic and that is okay. Maybe one day you may experience this feeling. Let’s get started, shall we?

You are not them keep this in mind. When I say you are not them I mean that do not think what happen to someone will happen to you. You are you. One of my sisters had to remind me of this. I was feeling worried about something and when she said, “Just because this happen to them does not mean its going to happen to you. You are not them.” When she said this it reminded me of Psalms 139:14 which says, “I Praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” I think that when you are worried about something you think well what if that happens to me? All the what ifs come to rise in your thoughts. If someone in your family had a failed marriage or got pregnant out of wedlock or something other than the things I mentioned. You are not them. Everyone has their own story and no story is the same. You probably have the same experiences, but that does not mean you are that person. Each of us has a unique story that is being written. Each of us has a different plan that is set out by God himself. Each of us has a different path and no path is the same. It is okay to be worried, but remember Matthew 6:34, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” So, I enecourage you whenever you feel worried about something like being scared or afraid of something because it happen in your family or friends, keep in mind that YOU ARE NOT THEM!!! Just trust God in everything.

Dear God,

I thank you for this reader that is reading this now. God whatever it is that they are worried about, I asked that you remind them that they are not them. You have created everyone in their own way. Lord, I pray that you give them peace and help them not to worry and to have faith.

In Jesus Name, I Pray

Amen.

Starting Up Again

Good evening, morning, or afternoon to all my followers. I know it has been almost two years since I have written something on this blog. I apologize to everyone who has been waiting. Before I get started on today’s topic, I would like to say Happy New Year. You made it and I made it Praise God!!

I picked this topic because I started this blog in 2015 and the last time I published a blog was in 2020. Was I busy? Was I lazy? Truth be told, I was never busy or lazy I just felt discouraged. I felt like this blog was going nowhere I mean honestly. I thought about deleting this but, I could never mount up to doing this… deleting something that I am passionate about it was the last thing on my mind. It was not a top priority to me. I never came home from work and rushed to my computer to erase everything. I still have words to say. Having a blog and writing books was something that I wanted, this brings me to the topic this week, Starting Up Again. I did not write this based on a new year but, something that I was inspired by. Have you ever started something and then stopped? Well, I would encourage you to start up again because you and I do not know what the future holds. You and I do not know what God has in store for you have started. It is okay to be discouraged, but do not let it take over. Once, it sets in you allow it to stop what you are doing. I am not saying it is your fault. That could be the enemy doing. The Bible says in John 10:10, ” The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” So, in other words, do not allow the enemy to steal that passion for whatever it is YOU have started. Do not let the enemy to steal your joy. God has placed whatever you have started on your heart for a reason. I will continue to write and publish more blogs this year. My question is what are you waiting for? It is time for YOU to

START UP AGAIN!!!!

Be blessed everyone.
