Not Easily Broken

June 24, 2015

The world as we know it is still the same, but the people within it has changed with magnified evil that cannot be ignored. What ignorance doesn’t do is make me weak and hopeless; instead, it strengthens my faith. I am not easily broken by Satan’s attacks nor am I broken by the evil He stirs up in people.

Conversations such as racism can no longer be ignored. Babies are not born racist, it is taught at home. We attend Church, read the Bible and out of that same mouth, we both praise God and curse others.

Change comes from within – you have to want it bad enough to make a difference.

This concludes Mimi Jenkins Moment of Truth.

It’s always tough when you try to piece your life back together after a tragic incident; whether it’s losing a loved one, losing your home, financial burdens, sickness, or spiritual death.  Starting all over again takes a tremendous amount of strength, focus, obedience, trust, and in my situations, faith and constant conversations with God.

Often times, you go through life trying to be accepted by friends, family members, parents, and your spouse – hope is often lost in pleasing people.  No matter how much you try, you can’t please everyone.  I would often get the guilty stare down when I say the word, “no”.

I have also noticed, the closer I get to God, the more people will bring up the past.  I refuse to be defined by my past – the moment I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Personal Savior, the old me was put away and the new me was born.  The past does not define my future.

Each and every morning, I thank God for keeping my heart beating throughout the night and filling my lungs with oxygen.  The alarm clock didn’t wake me up, He did.

Sometimes we can place ourselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. 

Whether or not  this was the case during my brother’s death in 1992 remains unclear,  but I strongly believe it was his  time.  God had bigger plans for him that was and still is beyond my comprehension.  My brother had turned his life around and stopped drinking weeks before he was murdered; I know God snatched him up before Satan got his devilish hands on him.  God needed my brother more than we did and is using him according to His plans and purpose.  

There is one thing I do know, my brother told me he loved me before his death….

Consequences are what we face when the truth is replaced with lies.  Satan has a way of telling us it matters what other people say or think.  He will strip away every peace of dignity and spiritual armor if we allow it.

Moment of Truth

March 20, 2014

In my  book I’m currently writing, “Get Thee Behind Me”, I often travel back and forth in my mind how a person’s lifestyle can reflect in their dreams.  Nightmares were something I inherited as a young girl.  I say “inherited” because I was always told about strange happenings and occurrences that happened to my family members that so happened to stick with me for a while.  Was it because lives were not being lived righteously?  I have come to find out when we step out of God’s Will and think we can handle things on our own, He will bring  us back to reality.  Some of us have financial problems because of greed…some have relationship problems because of jealousy and gossip…some have nightmare because we believe man over God…and so and so forth.  Pay attention to your dreams…it may just mean you need to change so God can use you for His purpose.  My nightmares stopped the moment I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Personal Savior and I asked God to take away the generational curse.  I am not responsible for what my ancestors have done.  

Proverbs Chapter 3:5-6 Reads:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.

What Would You Do

March 29, 2013

WATER:  A five letter word that we often take for granted.  We use it to make coffee, cook pasta, take endless showers and baths, wash our cars, make lemon juice, ice tea; etc.  You get the picture.  

What if you didn’t have it?  What if one day, all of our endless supply of water was suddenly cut off?  How would you adjust?  

What thoughts are running through your mind right now?  

There are so many things we often take for granted because in our mind, it will always be there for us.  This could be furthest from the truth.  You never know how good you have it until it is all gone.  

Please click on link below to find out how you can help those that “need” what we so often take for granted.

Are You Focused

January 7, 2013

As I look back over year 2012, I wonder if I have accomplished or at least attempted to put myself out there and be all I could have been by asking myself the following questions:

1. Did I slack in any areas?

2.  Did I work to my full potential towards my goals and dreams?

3.  Do I have any regrets?

Did I slack in any areas?

I think so, at least in the beginning.  You see, a lot of times we think we want something when in reality, we don’t.  We all need money to survive, but will it make us happy or fulfill our every aspect in life?  I have mentioned in a previous blog to go for what you want in life and do what makes you happy as long as it aligns with God’s will.  Sometimes, we tend to miss what we already have right under our noses.  That being said, I love writing and I will continue to write, but I will do so in an inspiring fashion.  There are lots of books and gurus that can tell you how to live your life, but in the end, it is all up to you.  How do you really perceive life?  Could you have done more things to accomplish your dreams?  If so, what you doing about it now?

Did I work to full potential towards my goals and dreams?

Towards the end I did.  You see, it is easy to say, “I want to be a writer.”  What was I doing to pursue my goals?  Did I sit back and wish for it?  Or did I, little by little, start focusing on how I can become a better writer.  What do I need to do in order to get my name out there?  Did I get disappointed every time I viewed my book and didn’t see any reviews?  Of course I did.  But, it only motivated me to keep pressing forward.  It also motivated me to reach out and seek others that I can encourage and uplift who are in my same shoes.  By me giving, I will be able to receive the gifts that God has placed before me.  I have connected with the right people who not only care about their writing, but are willing to help.  It is very important to surround yourself with like-minded people.

Do I have any regrets?

The only regret I have is not pursuing  my goals a lot earlier.  If you have a gift, use it before you lose it.  It took me a while to find my writing voice.  I knew what I wanted to write about and who I wanted to reach out to, it’s just putting those thoughts from pen to paper or from fingers to computer.

Live your life the way God intended you to.  When my mind is in a fog, I refer to Proverbs, 3:5-6 and Psalm 23.

Happy New Year Everyone!
