Cut Off Everything That’s Dead!

This weekend one of my sisters came over to get her hair done. As I trimmed her hair, she said something that shook my spirit. She said “EVERYTHING THAT IS DEAD… CUT IT OFF!” Now that I think about it….. it’s how she said it and she meant it! See, you have to know that my sister is on a healthy natural hair journey. She don’t just want long hair.. she wants HEALTHY long hair. Her hair is so beautiful that no matter her hair style; it’s captivating to just see her walk into a room! Not only is hair beautiful, but she is beautiful inside and out!

What she said ministered to me. I thought to myself, I don’t want to just be Holy. I want to be WHOLE and HOLY! EVERYTHING THAT IS DEAD I want God to cut it off!! I want to produce more fruit. When I come and go I want people to to be captivated by the love of Christ and be drawn near to him. Search me Lord and show me.. ME! I’m NOTHING without you. I can be a mess at times! Help me to be honest with you about where I am. Help me to remain naked before you! Thank you for always LOVING ME!! Most importantly…Jesus you be glorified in my life!!!!

Verse of Meditation: John 15:2-6 AMPC

Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit.

You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.

I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned.

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.
