Haiti

I'm watching the news channels and my heart is so heavy. Once again a natural disaster is killing our people. (And I don't mean people as in race, as in people in general) It hurts so bad to watch because I am here in Chicago without much to help. I pray and I hope God hears the prayers & feels the tears & touch upon people's hearts who have it to give. Who can go over there and help with damage control.
It feels like we're going through this again. Didn't we just go through this with Hurricane Katrina? Didn't we see so many people die & get stranded?
My main question is…why weren't those people evacuated??! I know someone had to detect something before it happened. And why is relief just getting there today? People have private jets & planes & helicopters!
Have you done your part? Even if it's just a prayer or $5, it doesn't matter as long as you do something.

Love thy self

Don't you just love the person that you are? If you do..........Congrats on your self-love. I encourage those who do not completely & truly love themselves, to look in the mirror. Look at how intricately beautiful you are! Look at how God made you a one of a kind master creation. Even Identical twins have something that makes him or her different. Every person has their flaws. I say learn to love your flaws because the person who truly & unconditionally loves you does not pay your flaws any attention. So why should you.
I understand that there are some people who have body issues. I am one of them. Most people, who know me, would never believe that I have my insecurities as well. I am skinny. I always have been, I can show pictures from any age & I will be skinny in the picture. My issue with myself is my skinniness I hate being so thin & I love being so thin. I like being thin because I have less health risks (high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease) yet I…

Prayer

This past weekend I found myself feeling so alone as if there was something missing from my life. And I had to get down on my KNEES and pray. I needed God to intervene and make His presence so well known that I'd never feel alone and I'd never feel empty again. Now here it is 2 days later and I feel so ALIVE. I love the way God answered my prayer. He made his presence known as well as fulfilled me. I have this insatiable urge to read my bible and get closer to his Word. I enjoy my gospel music more now than I ever have. I haven't listened to anything but gospel music since then.
I wanted to share my story with others so that they can know that God is so real. And that anyone can accept Him. You just have to believe and receive. You have to give your heart to Him. You have to be willing to let Him come in and take over. You have to open your heart, your mind, and your soul to God's presence. I prayed this hardest and most purely than I have ever prayed in my life. I aske…

Health

Being healthy is so important. Taking care of the body that GOD gave you is so important. We only receive one body in this lifetime so we must take care of that body so that we may enjoy life abundantly. Health is so important because if you aren't mentally healthy how can you be physically healthy or emotionally healthy? I say this because when you are depressed (mentally unhealthy) you start suffering physical ailments (clinically proven). When you are emotionally unhealthy you don't particularly take out the necessary time to make sure you are physically healthy.
You have to be healthy. You have to take care of yourself. If that means exercising on an everyday basis then so be it. Turn your exercise into something you enjoy. Dancing is an all over exercise. Skating is an all over exercise. Yoga is a physical & mental exercise. Riding a bicycle is great exercise. The main point to understand is that exercise doesn't have to be disappointing.
Being healthy is more than…
