Staying Afloat

Staying Afloat
By Mimi Jenkins
When you think all is lost and not a moment to spare, think about those poor lost souls that have given up…given up on life because they didn’t know how to stay afloat.  Not wearing a life jacket to arm yourself against the dangers of this life can surely take your life away. ..away from your loved ones.
No one knows what you go through, but you and GOD so why not hand it over to HIM?  Why not give HIM a chance?  HE has already given you the life jacket, all you have to do is put it on.  Go ahead save your life, I dare you.  I dare you to be different.  I dare you not to be concerned about what others say about you.  I dare you to care about you.
Don’t fret none precious one, you are not the only one going through with what you are going through.  I can almost guarantee someone is hurting more than you, wanting more than you, needing more than you, seeking more than you, and crying more than you.  You are not alone.  Please stay afloat if not for yourself, do it for your loved ones.  Do it for me.
No one has ever told you they loved you?  Well, GOD loves you and I love you; that’s a start.  No one has ever held you tight.  No one has ever comforted you.  No one has ever been a true friend to you.  All that is OK.  Do not put all your trust in man alone…place it all in one basket, GOD’s basket of goodness.  HE takes care of all problems no matter how big or small.
Love yourself, take care of yourself.  Be who you were meant to be.  If you don’t stay afloat, how can GOD use you?  How can people know how good you could have been?  How could you know how good you could have been?  All is not lost my precious.  It is there for you to take.  So go ahead and grab it.  It’s yours.
Trust that you can do it.  Get yourself off the couch, out of the bed and take a long bubble bath.  Think on things that are within your grasp.  Throw away that depression medication; cancel your doctor’s appointment. There is nothing wrong with you, you are just depressed.  Get up and shake it off.  Remember GOD loves you and I love you.  That’s all you need to hear.
Go ahead, give yourself a hug from GOD, and give yourself a hug from me.  You are appreciated, you are cared for, you are precious, and you are placed on this earth for a purpose.
The life jacket will help you stay afloat.  It is your lifeline to GOD   You are never alone.  Now, take a deep breath and tell me how you feel.  Now, doesn’t it feel good to feel loved and wanted?   You don’t always need to feel and physically touch someone or something to feel the energy of love that is warming your heart. You can feel it deep down inside can’t you?
Is that a smile a see?  I think you finally got it.  Precious, in all the things you do, place the LORD first and foremost.  HE will guide you and direct your paths.  No worries alright.  You have friends.  People actually love you, just let them in.  Let GOD in.  Precious, HE has been knocking at your door way too long.  Open it up and invite him in.  Believe you me; HE will surely always keep you afloat.

Persistence Pays Off!

It took twenty years to get to this point of approving a book cover for my romance novel because I had doubts and often listened to a bunch of negativity.  Once I set that all aside and concentrated on my goals , all of the negativity was replaced with positiveness.  I had big dreams, but was afraid to follow them because of that four letter word…yep, you guessed it…”fear”.  Fear of what?  Fear of what people will say…fear of failure…fear of success…fear, fear, fear…had stopped me dead in my tracks for twenty long years.  That’s a long time isn’t it?

Well, I am here to encourage you; you will never know how much of a success you could be if you don’t try.  People of all walks of life are going to criticize you.  The way I see it, if all people want to do is talk bad about me; then I must be doing something right in the eyes of GOD.  Jesus was criticized too…look where He sits…

In my book, I Am My Mother’s Daughter, Jocelyn faces criticism as well; it took a beating on her, but through it all, she was able to push through it with the help from loving friends.  You see, sometimes you got to stop hanging around folk that are bringing you down.  The only time you receive a visit, call, text, or e-mail is when they want something from you…switch up and settle down into GOD’s plan and purpose for your life.  Let HIM have HIS way with you.

Jocelyn is looking in the mirror; only the image she is seeing is not hers, but that of her moms smiling back at her.

Life over Death

June 24, 2012

We have all made choices…some wise…some not so wise… some we learn from…some we never learn from.  The point is; we made the decision to do or not to do.  But, it you don’t have any positive influences to guide you along the way, how will you be able to turn your crooked path into a straight one?

In my book titled, I AM MY MOTHER’S DAUGHTER, Jocelyn didn’t have  positive influences in her life.  She had a single dad who focused on building his law firm and a nanny who was…well, a nanny.  She chose death over life instead of the other way around; no guidance, no supervision, no one to say, “I love you.”

Now, don’t get me wrong, she had everything her dad’s money could buy, but she was “lost”.  So lost in fact, she started replacing God’s love with people…the wrong people who led her to do wrong things.

In order to find out if Jocelyn was able to straighten out her crooked path, you will have to buy my e-book. 🙂

Coming Soon!

May God always send blesses your way!

It has been a while folks and that’s because I have been working on my first novel entitled, “I AM MY MOTHER’S DAUGHTER; coming soon!  

This just goes to show you that everyone has a gift.  I express my gift  through inspirational writing, you may express your gift through writing, caring, giving, loving, forgiving, reading, public speaking; etc.  The point is we all have something that interests another. 

All my life I wanted to write, but let “fear” stop me.  I was afraid of being a failure.  I listened to everyone and was stressed out about everything.  I thought everyone had a gift with the exception of me.  GOD gave me the gift of writing to inspire others; It was me who didn’t think I had what it took to succeed. I talked myself into not doing what I loved to do.  Silly isn’t it?  But, it happens.

Don’t let your gift go to waste; put it to some use.  If you don’t use it, you will surely lose it.  Remember, all praises and glory go to GOD.  Thank HIM on a daily basis for the things you already have; if you remain obedient according to HIS will for your life, you will be blessed with more!

This concludes Mimi Jenkins Moment of Truth!

Have a blessed day.
