12 Dec


Ayyyyyyyeeee It’s my BIRTHDAY!!! I know… I know… I’ve been on a little hiatus but it was for good reason. I had to clear my mind and be focus for my up and coming Mission trip on Friday. So this will probably be the last post until the top of 2018, with a little facelift to my blog site; added some merchandise for my Chosen campaign as well! Anyway, I wanted to share with you how much you are loved!!

No seriously! Even though at this moment you might feel like people have abandoned you, this person betrayed you or left. Just really thinking about all the losses you may have taken this year but I’m here to tell you that you are LOVED! This new found revelation that I have of this AGAPE type love is blessing me over and over each day!

Let’s get into this… Sunday Antoinette Brazelton from Victory Christian Ministry came to teach at our Echo Service on Sunday and boy did she truly bless my life. Her heart for GOD is soooo big! One of her key points in her lesson was that God loves us! And on the surface you probably reading this joint like ok we KNOW! But do you really? I mean I thought I knew but the way his love has been consuming me this week isn’t like anything I’ve ever experienced before! So she took us back to the beginning, Genesis. In Genesis chapter one we read how God spoke things into existence. Throughout all of chapter 1 you see the words “And God Said…” but God thought so much of you and I, that he handcrafted us. He got down in the dirt and got lost in his work of creating us. Listen, I missed this for years and I don’t want you to miss this…God spoke everything else into existence we are his only creation that he personally touched and crafted and molded and shaped and he took his time! He put thought and effort into how we would function and look because he knew he was putting himself on the inside of us!!!!! *screams* Think about how we are made…our DNA make up…how we are all uniquely different. How we as women can produce other human beings. How God breathe himself on the inside of us. Now this is to me the highest level of intimacy. God breathing his breath into our bodies to give us life. We are a walking reflection of GOD. He created us knowing that we would make all these mistakes…and yet he considers us his greatest work.

And the most amazing thing about God is that his love cannot be earned it is FREELY GIVEN. There is nothing you can do to make him love you more than what he already does and there is nothing you can do or have done that can make him love you less. He is LOVE and we are his heartbeats in the earth.

HE IS A GOOD GOOD FATHER!!!!! Lawd….as I type this I am just in awe of his love for us! So when you feel like you have no one else, you have God! He never abandons us even when we abandon him. He is always right there with open arms waiting for you to come home!

If you have never confessed Jesus Christ as your lord and savior and never experience this love I’m talking about right now! You can!

Romans 10:9Says that if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus is lord and he died for our sins and rose from the dead you shall be saved.

If this has blessed you in anyway comment and share. If you made Jesus your lord and savior via this post please share with me!!!! I want to personally WELCOME YOU to the FAMILY!!!! Email me at chozenbyme@gmail.com or leave a comment. I would love to hear how God is changing your life!!!

Colossians 3:1,2 (MSG)

So if you’re SERIOUS about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.

So, the past two weeks presented some challenges in my life. I started a new job last week (GO ME!!) but a week before I started my job my car broke down. LOL Listen, Linda, Listen! My new job is about a 30-45 min commute. I NEED A CAR! The funny thing about this whole situation is, I legit take care of Benita (That’s her name. She like this pearl green color so I call her Benita Apple baum….you got to put on Benita, Benita, Benita…ok I’m back) I get her oil changed and stuff regularly so when she started smoking… I had the confused stuck face. Like….


When stuff like this happens you immediately want to trip out but I was like NAW son, I’m not giving in to the Devil’s devices. God knows my end from my beginning which means he already knew that this was going to take place! So guess what? He already has worked out a solution. I got my life together and called the insurance people and family. Then had my car towed to my mechanic. Now this was a Sunday and I had to report to my previous job Monday and Tuesday. I actually had a bunch of stuff to do to prepare for my new job that I was going to report to the following week.  On top of that the mechanic calls and says you need a new engine and then proceeds to tell me he can get me a USED engine for $3400. Y’all my debit card immediately busted out laughing! All I could say was ok let me think about what I am going to do because I don’t have the money. I immediately prayed and said ok GOD how we gone do this because I DON’T want another car note. I had already released my faith that I would be able to save my coin and pay for my next car in CASH and I had no intent of changing that because of this situation.

Now you might be reading this and thinking, what does this have to do with Colossians 3…GIRL everything! When situations occur that we have no control over the first thing we tend to do is TRIP OUT because we focus on what is right in front of us. Then we panic in the process because we are trying to figure out in our OWN ability how we gone correct the situation instead of TALKING TO THE WAY MAKER FIRST. THE ONE WHO IS IN OUR TOMORROW TODAY! The ONE who holds the blue print!!

Because I focused my attention on him and positioned myself to be in his presence and hear instruction from him…MY PROCESS which I am STILL GOING THROUGH because I STILL DON’T have my CAR has been made a lot smoother. I am DETERMINE to go to the next level in my faith and not let ANYTHING get in my way. So as Colossians 3 says “DON’T SHUFFLE ALONG, EYES TO THE GROUND, ASORBED WITH THE THINGS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU…LOOK UP!” Be GOD CENTERED! Be GOD FOCUSED!  Because the devil’s agenda is to get you distracted from growing in your connection with GOD which will prevent you from BEING THE BEST VERSION OF WHO GOD ALREADY KNEW YOU COULD BE.

It might be chaos around you but if we keep our eyes on the ONE who holds our tomorrow in his hand I promise you, you’ll look back on that situation and smile because you came out on the other side!!
