You Are Not An Accident!!!

There was many days I did not like who I was or what I look like but I learned God makes no mistakes. I’ve gone through some tragic things in life that God allowed to happen to shape me into who I am today. He knew I could handle it if I trusted in Him. I had a Christian foundation which made all the difference in my life. I remember at the age of 13 when I was being molested by someone who broke into our home in the middle of the night saying, “God I know this is happening for a reason but I do not blame you”. I can now witness to others that if you are alive even though we go through things that we cannot understand, you are here for a reason. Take your tragedy and turn it into a testimony because if you can make it, so can someone else.

This is from the excerpt from the book I’m reading, “What on Earth am I Here For” by Rick Warren, “long before you were conceived by your parents, you were conceived in the mind of God. He thought of you first. It is not fake nor chance, nor love, nor coincidence that you are breathing at this very moment. You are alive because God wanted to create you! The Bible says, “the Lord will fulfill his purpose for me.” God prescribed every single detail of your body. He deliberately chose your race, the color of your skin, your hair, every other feature. He custom made your body just the way he wanted it. He also determined the natural Talent you possess and the uniqueness of your personality.” God made you for a reason! Isaiah 44:2 “I am your creator you were in my care even before you were born”.

So if you think I’m cocky or too confident because I hold my head high, I walk with a purpose, and I enter a room without fear trust me I’m humble, but it’s because I finally figured out I am not an accident….. Real Talk!!!

Go get this book, you will be blessed, I thank one of my sisters, Patricia N., for the recommendation. I love you Pat!

It’s Cool!!!

It’s OK that everyone will not understand the path you walk which entail the things you do. That’s why it’s your path and they have their own. Don’t let anyone discourage you from doing what you want to do even if it does not work out at least you tried. What God has for you is for you. So those who don’t support what I do or what you do, It’s Cool!!! I’ll have a good night anyways and I pray you do the same 🙂 ……Real Talk!

Our 40 day Path

Today my teenage daughter and I started with a 1.2mile run which is part of our 40 day spiritual and physical transformation. As a family we are reading Rick Warren’s book, What On Earth Am I Here For?. To help with our physical well being I purchased a lot of foods that is supposed to be beneficial to me according to my blood type. The plan is for the spiritual+mental+physical= transformation. Today I stand at 169lbs and 5’5″. The goal is to weigh 159 by mid April. The journey begins!!! 🙂

Involving my children in various aspects of my life has led to a closer family unit.

No filters, “Real Talk”, but clean daily life highs and lows we all go through and how we have gotten through them. Everyone who is involved is excited to get this path ready to see where it takes us. WBSB is ready to share with the world: our thoughts, experiences, relationship views, and so much more.
