Emotional Deposit… Simply Me

Ok I am focused Now… I have been under fire with family, school, life’s demands and I really wished I could just disappear. Have you ever felt like that? I wondered if I just vanished like the rapture how would life go on without me. I’m wondering about the people who depends on me so much and even my enemies will they find someone else to hate? ( chuckling) that doesn’t matter really. Just a random thought…Honestly. I have tried and tried again but my heart won’t let my passion for writing go. I just can’t seem to shake this writing fever. I love blogging, sharing my thoughts, sharing my life and most of all the feedback from my readers… You guys are the Best!  There is such a sense of freedom when the “Simply Me” comes out. I wear so many hats these days boy I tell you I am even confused on which one to put on when issues arise in my life. Should I be the Pastor, friend, sister, mother or just plain ole “ME.”?

So I have decided to be me and would like to re-introduce myself…Hi My name is Sakinah and I am a loving, outgoing, funny, caring, witty, ambitious, think on her feet go getter who wants to live life to its fullest potential. I realize that daily someone loses their life and we often hear the sad stories wpid-img_20140127_090635.jpgabout the person who has gone too soon. So I am here to stay and while I am here I will like for you to share my world. I  invite you into my daily discussions on just about anything that comes to mind food, church, life, leadership  you name it I’ll discuss it….Woo hoo I’m feeling free already. One of life’s biggest challenges is to be authentic, living a false life will have you bound to lies and fabricated fantasy that would be hard to make a reality. Take it from me I heard it all and seen it all, it is just not worth it. Learning how to express your true self will come with a boat load of honesty with first yourself and then with others. Let your flaws be know it will paint a better picture of you as you go through life challenges and struggles you are enduring as you right your wrongs. And remember NO One is Perfect!. We all deserve a second, third, forth, fifth chance at life to change, to be renewed and be regenerated in some areas in our lives so why not go for it?

I know life’s demands are jabbing at you to invoking you to make an emotional and crazy  response. So I say think about how you will respond to life, because it will respond back to you depending on your decision. How will you respond to the hand life deals you today? Life is sometimes a gamble, but you are the MVP of your life team. will you get fearful and fold? or will you try to ignore it? or pull your boot straps up and face your opponent in confidence knowing that life won’t always this way.  Hey, let me share this with you God is calling us ceaselessly through every circumstance of life? Through every attack and every battle and Yet He is measuring every spiritual attack that the enemy is allowed to wield against us. So let me drop this emotional deposit on you… God uses every attack to help you to identify areas of needed growth and healing.

In your quiet time today? ask the Holy Spirit to clarify those areas that needs growth and healing and Journal it.

please feel free to comment and share your thoughts…. Love Always Simply Sakinah….

Looking UP!

When your in a crisis who or what do you turn to for help? What do you value and admire most? To what or to whom are you giving your available time? There is a famous quote “if you haven’t had trouble in your life, just keep on living” Life can hit us hard, so hard we fall to our knees. At the startling beginning of a crisis a problem exist. The problem can be so enormous we become fearful and begin to doubt that is no solution or a way out. Fear can make a person doubt their abilities and become paralyze making it difficult to see the ending of a thing, problem, crisis etc. Fear motivates one to develop a “Just in case”  or “You never know” mentality that leaves a person always looking over their shoulder. While fear is present in most every circumstance of life, it does not have to paralyze you. So I pose the question when you are in a crisis and feeling fearful who do you look too for comfort.

Do you turn to your friends for advice and directions, drugs and sex to help you forget the pain, shopping to feed your depression. It is important to realize that whatever you deem important and instinctively turn to in times of trouble is an idol. There are many modern day idols that appear to offer strength and joy, but those who trust in them soon find out that the idol’s image of strength is a fabricated thought or a facade. In this life there will be many more problems to experience and solve, but who do you look for to provide you authentic joy and peace in the midst of it all is in our Father in Heaven. Quiet time with God can help you refocus your life and give you the balance you need to handle any problem. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding 6) in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.

Psalms 34: asks the question Who is the man who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from Evil ( Life and death is in the power of your tongue). Speak life over your dead situations. Speak the desired outcome of your problem and it shall be granted within God’s Will concerning you. Depart from evil and do good. Sometimes people hurt you in the process or they become your problem. Do good because the Lord will fight your battles…Seek and pursue peace. Through the fear, hurt and pain it is comforting to know that God’s eyes are on the righteous and His ears are open to their cry.

Who we are today is a direct reflection of what has been important to us. If you live a life of worship there will be a distinct resemblance of our Savior Jesus the Christ. 

Never Alone
