Change Me….Not Them!

Yesterday I was reminded of a old song I use to hear when I was young girl. It was called “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson. As a child I sang the song but never understood what he ment when he said, he was starting with the man in the mirror. Now I get it! People in this world can be cruel, judgmental, and flat out evil. I don’t know about you, but many times I have been over looked, mistreated, and misused. I finally realize that I can’t make the people around me change. I can only change myself in the situation. I started praying a simple prayer, asking Jesus to change ME; Not my husband, not my children, not my boss or co-workers. But change me! Praying that simple prayer has change my prospective and my life! It’s not that I don’t want these people to change, but I notice that when I change everything and everyone around me has got to change!

Verse Of Meditation: James 1:23-25

For once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does

I'm a dedicated wife, author, CLC and mother of a blended family of five children and 3 grandchildren. I started a personal relationship with Jesus Christ on March 2, 2013. From that day forward, my life has forever changed! I love Jesus and I have a passion for helping women of all ages and walks of life. As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I enjoy helping moms and baby breastfeed successfully. My favorite moto is "Any breast milk is better than none." I believe every mother and baby have their own unique breastfeeding journey. I look forward to walking with families to make the journey rewarding! I have been married to my loving husband, Michael since 2005 . We have experienced God's unmerited favor on our lives. However, It has not always been easy. Just like other married couples, we have faced many obstacles: In-law issues, financial issues, blended family issues, infidelity, cheating, etc. In 2011, we were near a divorce and our marriage was nearly over, but God had other plans for our union. He has restored our marriage, healed, and delivered us both. We are now SYMBIS Marriage Counselors and the proud founders of A2GG (Adding 2 God’s Gifts ( A2GG is a sports development and mentor-ship program for the youth. To conclude, we enjoy attending church and helping families overcome the strategies of the enemy.
