The Wrong Turn

My job consists of me traveling to different counties every day. I have two routes that look similar and if I don’t pay attention it’s possible to take the wrong turn off the highway. Well to my surprise, that’s is exactly what happen this morning. Once I made the wrong turn, I was unable to turn around. The next exit was about 10 miles away, which would cause me to be almost 20 minutes behind schedule. Immediately, I became anxious and frustrated. Then a few minutes later I calmed myself down and prayed and gave thanks to God for allowing me to take the turn. I know he make all things work together for my good! Besides that, I know he protects me from seen and unseen dangers. When I finally pulled up at work it was 8am. Although I took the wrong turn, God still made sure I was ON TIME! Thank you Jesus!

In life we can start out on the right path but later find ourselves getting off course and taking the wrong turns. Sometimes it’s hard to turn around on your own. Therefore, we need the help of God. In my experiences, God has always met me right there in that place. His grace and mercy is sufficient. Call on him and repent and ask him to help you get back on track. Don’t worry about the time you have lost. Just seek God and trust him with all your heart. He is God…. He created time! He is able to collapsed time and have you exactly where you need to be and have you there ON TIME! Be encouraged!

Verse of Meditation:Lamentations 3:40 Let us examine and probe our ways, And let us return to the LORD.

with all power in your hands. Wash me and cleans me from all my sins and make

Burned Out :(

I went into the laundry room to dry a load of clothes. Before I started the dryer up, I decided to check the lint filter. To my surprise, it has not been cleaned in a while. The lint was very thick and fuzzy. When the filter is dirty it makes the dryer work harder, resulting in a burned out dryer. This can present a fire hazard.

Which brings me to myself; this past weekend I felt like I was going to have a break down. I have been slammed with task, deadlines, laundry, work, bills, projects, etc… People would call or text me, not with a “Hey how are you doing?” but “Can you?” “Will you”?? “Why not”? I felt just like that dryer; over worked and over heated. No matter how busy I explained to others that I was; they still found a way to add more. If only they took a second to do a lint check. They would have known that I was about to burn out. The Bible teaches us not to be people pleasers. I’m working on balance and learning not to be a “yes” person. One thing I do know; is to ask for wisdom and call on Jesus when I’m in need of rest!

Verse of Meditation: Matthew 11:28 (KJV). Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Its Already Open!

Last week my husband and I went to the mall to grab a bite to eat. As we approached the food court, I immediately began to start pushing on the heavy steal doors. My husband said, “Babe you don’t have to push on the doors. Look, this door is already open.” Later that night I pondered on what he said. I thought about the many times I’ve tried to go ahead of God and force my way in doors that he had not yet opened. I only made my way harder by overlooking the doors that was automatically design to open for me. I’m learning that walking with God is a lot easier than walking ahead of him. I encourage you to be patient and wait for your open door. God has gone ahead of you to ensure that it will OPEN WIDE!!!!

Verse of Meditation: Revelation 3:8 KJV                         I know thy works. Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it. For thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My Word, and hast not denied My name

Wisdom is the Key!


So…… there is this old, ancient, and heavy electric poll directly behind my sister’s drive way. I have witnessed so many friends and family members back up and hit it. As a result, it has left severe damage to their vehicles. I use to fear being the next victim of that poll Lol! I consciously made a mental note of the pole each and every time I pulled up in her drive way. I decided that I would not be the one to add to that number.

Wisdom is the key to having a great spiritual walk. It helps you to discern things and people that are not always noticeable to the human eye.. .. like that pole! Wisdom helps you to avoid set backs and pitfalls.

See wisdom will teach you if you allow it to. It allows you to learn from others mistakes and avoid making them. So don’t be so quick to judged a pregnant teen, a high school drop out, a drunken, failed marriage, a single mother/father or etc… Just make a mental note of their mishaps or mistakes and avoid the pitfalls. Wisdom is free.. just ask your Father in Heaven.

Verse of meditation: Proverbs 4:5-9.        Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.
