Day 20 of #100daysoflesshustle

Yesterday I watched a live broadcast on Eric Thomas’s YouTube channel.  It was presented by Forbes and he spoke on the topic “healing from trauma.”  I’ve become angry at life after enduring much over the last several years and desire to move forward. I awakened this morning with ET’s motivational message on my heart.  I began asking myself a series of questions such as what happened to my morning routine…

Don’t give up on your God-given dream

For several months the Lord has dealt with me regarding faith and belief.  Faith to step outside of my comfort zone to accomplish my goals and belief in my spiritual gifts and natural abilities to reach my dream of writing full time.  It all seemed far fetched for a girl who grew up in a neighborhood deemed undesirable by many.  Being blessed with the ability to earn a living without…

Day 17 of #100daysoflesshustle

Walking by faith is often a challenge.  When God impressed it upon my heart that it was “time to leave” the neighborhood I where I currently am my first thought was whether I could afford a house in a different area or not. I’m sure that I am not the only woman (or man) who in the words of my mother has “champagne taste and Kool-Aid money.”  I’d always aspired…

Day 14 of #100daysoflesshustle

There are moments in my time with God when I am at a loss for words.  This is one such time.  Having utilized the NASB and Message Bible during my devotions has opened my eyes in such a wonderous way.  I’m in awe of how expansive the word of God can be. The simplicity of #100days brings a newness to my time with the Lord.  I am forever grateful.  As…

Day 13 of #100daysoflesshustle

“Every good action and every perfect gift is from God. These good gifts come down from the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows.” James 1:17 NCV Does this include good health I wonder?  Especially after a night of emotional eating and comparing myself to someone much smaller than I am.  I believe so.  I must, because it’s the only hope I…

Day 11 #100daysoflesshustle

Breathe… This is what I must constantly tell myself whenever I become anxious.  After overcoming years of Job-like trials I’ve found myself consistently in a heightened state of awareness.  Constantly looking over my shoulder expecting a problem to surface.  Thankfully nothing has, however, I feel completely justified over the smallest of occurrences. Breathe… “1,2,3,4,5.”  It’s become a routine of sorts.  Air expanding in and out of my lungs reminding me…

God’s Love #100daysoflesshustle

“Oh, how I love your word my God and my King.”  These were the words I exclaimed in writing and to the Lord during my quiet time.  Knowing that the God of the universe loves me as he does causes me to be overcome with emotion.  Not only does he know my name, but he knows just where I am in life.  He loves me enough to give direction and…
