Stick with freedom….

Keep walking tall. Hold your head up high. Lay your dreams in the sky. Sing your song and keep growing on. Take it from me one day we’ll all be free.

Just a little something to let you know it’s not the end.

Much Love,

Tracy B

That’s how I expect it to be….

When I’m at my weakest moments is when I realize I’m not allowing God to fight my battle. 

Happy Friday to you all. Friends God is truly awesome in all aspects of life.

unwrappedThumbnail-1He can make you seem bigger than you really are. He can make you look more powerful. He knows how to multiply your influence, your strength, your talent and your income. You don’t have to figure it all out; all you have to do is put your trust in Him. If you will trust Him and wake up every day expecting His abundant favor, then you’re going to see Him make up the difference in every area of your life! (Joel Osteen)

Don’t worry about the naysayers another day. When God says YES then it’s settled!

I see it now…….

There’s a leak in this old building and my soul has got to move.

images-72Although this is part of a song it’s my testimony for today. There’s a leak in my relationship. I have gotten off course, lost focus, and allowed distractions to delay me. I woke up this morning wanting to slap myself. I thought about the events leading up to this day and could not believe how negative and powerful I can be. I heard the voice of my mother ringing in my ears saying “Now baby girl why would you handle it like that? You can’t sit around worrying about what and how someone else is getting things done. You got to do this for yourself. Don’t get mad when you see injustice or unfairness because you went looking for it. If your focus was on what it should be then you wouldn’t have time to think or discover any type of politics within anything. Don’t speak on what is seen, speak on what is unseen and cause that to be your reality.” I sat looking in the mirror dumbfounded at my truth. I had lost focus and its affected multiple areas in my life. It even affected others around me. I was speaking my problems and others jumped on board. Now I have to go back and right my wrong but even in doing that I know God is with me. If you find yourself relating to this then please shift your mindset and focus on making you better than before.

Today I see the light and I’m walking in the newness of it.

Much Love,

He is with me…..

I thank God for this day.

sleep1 well restedThis morning I was laying in bed reading the bible. I read the passage on going to war and not being afraid even when it looks like I will be defeated. The reason God said not to be afraid is because HE is always with you.  He’s always going before you to make the path smoother, easier to handle. I found comfort in the passage of scripture because for some reason I was feeling defeated. It was like the world was/is against me.  Not just me but my family as well. Any and all attacks have landed at my doorstep and remained for way to long. However, today I am not afraid of the storms, winds, and rain because I know God is always with me.

God is always with you regardless of where you are!!! I hope this alone brings sunshine to your day!-)

Much Love,

Tracy B

Put it all on me…..

Good day… It’s just one of ‘dem’ days I feel like dancing! Not that all is perfect, but that I am here and God is always with me.

The One (Tamar Braxton)

Forgive me if I’ve had this song on here before but I really do love THE ONE!!! So y’all get up and dance with me!!

Tamar Braxton (She, Me, Her) you did that! 🙂

Much Love,

Turn Up!!!!

images-2Even though I walk though the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for You are with me.  God, Your rod and staff comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of all my enemies. Even though You knew all the hell I would allow You anointed me Father and my cup overflows. Surely goodness, love, mercy, love, and did I say love will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in Your house forever. Lord you shaped me, molded me, uniquely created me and sent me into this world. It is my desire to do Your will. Allow our thoughts to become as one so that I may walk and not stumble, but even if I do You have given me elasticity like that of a palm tree and I thank You for my strength. Thank You for being patient when I had no time for anything. And Father, thank You for keeping me, my family, and all Your children. We’ve gone through storms, battles, heartaches, trials, and everything else that equates to pain but even in all that we gone TURN UP and CELEBRATE the fact We Still Here!!

It gets better looking everyday you see your life as God sees it for each day is full of favor and surprises!

Much Love,

God IS…..

Let it be what it shall.

abatista_16 sun beautyMy God shall supply all of my needs according to His riches and glory.  Since He owns all of this and beyond then I am to inherit whatever my heart desires. He even said He would give me the desires of my heart and that settled it for me. Then He told me His plans of good for my life, not the evil that seems to try to wiggle its way and cause distraction. He told me my steps are ordered by Him. I know you’ve heard all of this before because He told you the same thing. So with that I say whatever it is you’re going through has been and God was there. It will be and God will be there and it is to come and God will still be there. You might as well go on and live your life with purpose because even if you don’t see Him, feel Him, talk to Him, or believe in Him He’s still there… and it’s all working for your good!!!

Let it be what it shall because God IS and always will be!!!!

Happy birthday to my little sis Kayonnie “Bishop” Jones.. Love you boo!!!

He’s preparing me……

It’s still Friday when it’s all said and done.

Yesterday made 2 years of my mother’s passing.  It was kinda weird for me. I didn’t pick up the phone to call, text, or instant message any of my siblings. I figured it was just as weird for them as well and plus I didn’t want to hear any sorrow in their voices. I remember starting my day with praise and a heart of thanks to God for me keeping me and His children yet another day. Then my mood just went left so I decided to listen to Darryl Coley’s serenade of “He’s Preparing Me”. My oh my!! When I listened to that song and allowed it to penetrate my heart I couldn’t stop crying or praising God for the wonderous things He has done and will do.

Would you join me today in thanking God for keeping you while preparing you for the greater harvest!

Much Love,

Tracy B

 

What do you know?????…..

Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.

images-49Don’t you just despise those folk that think they know it all? Well, I do. It simply irritates me when I’m in a conversation and someone jumps in and corrects my story. Like they had something to do with it, or they were someone around. They reply with “Oh, I know what I’m talking about.” My response is usually questioning what they think they know.

I’ve been the person on the other end of knowing it all. I didn’t need corrections or critiques because I figured I was never wrong. I knew it all until God showed me how wrong I was. His words…..

“If anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know, but if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him. If you know more than me then please tell me what you know. Here’s a question. Do you know your purpose?” 

Don’t be a know it all, it’ll stunt your growth.

Much Love,

Tracy B

You’re loved regardless….

There’s no harm in loving your neighbor, for in doing so you have fulfilled the law of love.

 

images-72Just wanted to let you all know that someone loves you. Regardless of how things look, feel, seem or whatever the case may be, just know there’s always someone thinking of you, missing you, praying for you, and loving you. If you’re feeling down just look up. If you’re feeling weak just lean on God. If you’re feeling empty just allow God to fill you up.

When you’re feeling your worst God is blessing you the most!!!

Much Love,

Tracy B
