Embracing God’s Love – A Model’s Understanding

Life sometimes will throw you curves and you won’t know why. But, it’s important to understand who you are – a child of God. You were created uniquely by God with His foundation of love. And everything that God makes is wonderful; therefore you are wonderful. Today, if you’re feeling lost, alone, frustrated, or unloved, negate those feelings immediately and know that you are loved by the Most High. Nothing can separate you from the love of God through Christ. When I sought love through a man and was rejected, God still loved me. When family members belittled me and verbally attacked me, God still loved me. When the kids at school made fun of my speech, God still loved me. When I was broke and lost with nowhere to go, God still loved me. And when I didn’t love myself, God still loved me. So take heart on this day and embrace God’s love.

The Signature: Case of the Black Hat

IMG_0568
Hey darlings,

Saturday’s musings consisted of running through the city! And of course, it was Valentine’s Day, so love was in the air all cross the border. And speaking of love, this black hat, that I dearly LOVE, has really become my signature – you’ll find me wearing this hat throughout my blog posts. However, you WON’T find me wearing it the same way nor with the same outfit. The trick is to wear the hat differently with various styles – versatility is CRUCIAL when purchasing a hat! Therefore, I encourage you to select a hat that allows you to be creative in your attire. Be inspired 😉

*Oh and one of my musings consisted of frolicking at the beautiful famous Waldorf Astoria hotel. Yeaaaaaaaa it’s an amazing place to be!*

Attire: Dress – Vince Camuto (I found this baby at Marshalls!)
Belt – I haven’t the clue where I got it from (oops lol)
Boots – Nine West
Hat – H&M

Testimony Alert!!!!

2015/01/img_0240.jpg
TESTIMONY ALERT! So, I actually wasn’t going to share this, but I’ll tell of His goodness and encourage someone. Well. On Thursday, I got my BRAND NEW HEARING AIDS in which I totally LOVE! I had been trying to acquire some new ones for over a year, but couldn’t afford them. I swore as a child I would never wear hearing aids again because I thought I looked like a freak and everybody treated me so differently. But, here I am now – wearing the very thing I despised. And here’s the thing, these hearing aids costs THOUSANDS of dollars, more than y’all’s rent for ONE hearing aid but our God is just so good that I didn’t even pay a DIME for them!! Now what type of God is that?! A POWERFUL GOD! #MightyGod #Testimony #ConqueringFears #Inspiration #HearingImpaired #AModelOfLife #Unbothered

Fighting God isn’t A Luxury

Hey darlings, I hope the first day of November was amazing for you since it’s a brand new month. A new month to start over.  Another chance.

As I stated in my previous post, last week was a very bad week for me.  Honestly, I just lost hope in everything: that things are going to change, my situation will improve, you know – just everything.  Was it all worth it?  That was the million dollar question wandering around in my head last week.  I cried so much, my eyes were burning and my face began shattering to pieces.  My little light was so dim, I was dabbling between two realms of either darkness or the shadows.  No, it was darkness.  Just darkness.

Have you ever gotten to that point before?

I didn’t want to eat. I didn’t want to sleep.  I didn’t want to brush my teeth. I didn’t want to do anything.

But, how did I get to this point? Again?

I’m STILL recovering from the hell I just went through, that God delivered me from earlier this year.  STILL.

But I was hurting.  The pain was too great for me to bear.  I felt like it wasn’t fair that I have to go through what I’m going through.  I wanted out.  Perhaps I’ve been torturing myself by fighting against God’s will for my life.

Hmmmmm.

You know, I want things to go MY WAY. I’ve set some goals for myself for Nov. 1st and there’s no reason why I couldn’t achieve them if I have all of this favor on my life, so the Bible says.

Why couldn’t God open the floodgates of heaven and bless me with what I wanted?! I asked myself that SO many times in these past moments.

Because it wasn’t God’s plans for me.

That’s why.

What I wanted wasn’t what He had in mind for me, well at least not at this time I’ve concluded.  It’s not that He’s not going to give it to me, it’s just not in HIS timing.  God’s timing is ALWAYS best.  Apparently, I stopped trusting Him and took matters into my own hands causing more trouble for myself, at least internally, in the spirit.

Don’t we all do that sometimes? Stop trusting Him and take matters into our hands because of fear, worry, impatience, or whatever else we allow to consume us.

I was, in fact, fighting HIM. Fighting His will for my life.  And of course, I didn’t win.  I went nowhere.  Severely hurting myself.

Being outside the will of God is an awful place to be.  There’s no fruit to bear. At all.

But, I’ll tell you one thing: when you’re walking in HIS plan for your life, He will provide.  He will take care of what’s His.  I found that out last Sunday when I finally let go of everything, my will, what I wanted.  I had to humble myself before the Lord because I had become prideful.  And pride always comes before destruction as I was about to destroy myself.  However,  as soon as I let go and surrendered to His will for my life, the floodgates of heaven flew open!

And all of this time, I thought God stopped loving me and forgot about me.  But instead He just wants what’s best for me and was waiting for me to trust Him and His will for my life.

Hmmmmm. Yes indeed. HE does.

Well.

Darling, I just want you to know that God has not forgotten about you nor stopped loving you. In fact, nothing can separate you from His love through Christ.  He just wants the best for you.  Trust Him.

Fall Attire: A Nude Dress

From my previous post, A Chic Sunday in Brooklyn, I promised to showcase the dress I had on that was beautifully hidden under my leather jacket. Of course, it’s more stunning without the jacket but you know I had to add my edge to it. But, I’m in love with the nudes right now especially since my style has been changing and evolving into more of who I’ve become! Nudes are great right now especially during this fall season; try to add a twist to a nude piece you may have in your closet as this dress has plenty of twists and edges (which is why I love it so much!). Take a look and see for yourself! Be inspired 😉
