Okay,so I mentioned I had news: TA-DA! One of the woman who I admire released her book today. I am beyond elated to go pick it up today and begin to dive into a life that the enemy wanted to destroy (suicide) but God had another plan. Before coming to Christ, I listened to Flyleaf and felt such a connection to the music. Didn’t know she was singing about Christ (with super dope rock melody to follow) so today I honor @ilovejoshsturm Lacey Sturm in promoting her new book. Go and pick it up. God uses people as vessels to reach to us. Maybe she can do just that with her experience. “Keep watch over your heart, that’s where your life starts”
A stagnant life is no life for me.

A couple of days ago, sweetheart took me to LifeWay book store. We both love The Prayer Furnace. We love the smell of the oil in there that we had to go and get to use. 😍😘🙏☝
I love who he is becoming.

He’s Risen!! Hallelujah!! Thank you God for fulfilling the law with the ultimate sacrifice of your Son, the Christ. Thank you for ripping the veil that set us apart & reconciling us back to your heart. Because of you, my life has forever been transformed, my spirit leaps to be reborn! I will forever praise your name. Amen!

What was a crucifixion? Let us try to realize it, and understand its misery. The person crucified was laid on his back on a piece of timber, with a cross-piece nailed to it near one end – or on the trunk of a tree with branching arms, which answered the same purpose. His hands were spread out on the cross-piece, and nails driven through each of them, fastening them to the wood. His feet in like manner were nailed to the upright part of the cross. And then, the body having been securely fastened, the cross was raised up, and fixed firmly in the ground. And there hung the unhappy sufferer until pain and exhaustion brought him to his end – not dying suddenly, for no vital part of him was injured – but enduring the most excruciating agony from his hands and feet, and unable to move.
Such was the death of the cross. Such was the death that Jesus died for us! For six long hours He hung there before a gazing crowd, naked, and bleeding from head to foot – His head pierced with thorns – His back lacerated with scourging – His hands and feet torn with nails – and mocked and reviled by His cruel enemies to the very last.
Let us meditate frequently on these things. Let us often read over the story of Christ’s cross and passion. Let us remember, not least, that all these horrible sufferings were born without a murmur. No word of impatience crossed our Lord’s lips. In His death, no less than in His life, He was perfect. To the very last, Satan found nothing in Him. (John 14:30.

I am elated for this book to be released this fall. Lacey Sturm, she has been a person I greatly admire. Her music with Flyleaf has helped me in many ways and her testimony is so powerful and relatable. She is such a gentle spirit and she is so transparent. I listened to her while still living for the world not knowing she was singing about God. The lyrics at the time were so intriguing to me, like: “Who is this person she sings about.” (ALL AROUND ME SONG). She also was someone I saw that wore all black and loved Jesus as much as the next believer. A confirmation to me that black is not something of evil or darkness but a beautiful color expressing more than any bright color can. I knew then black is for me and Jesus receives me with open arms. Also, knowing she was a Christian Rock artist was also a plus. I thought after accepting Jesus I won’t be able to listen to Rock (Thank God for that).I can still rock on with Jesus. It’s what in the heart that matter. If you want to read a good book that will edify you in your walk, this is one. @ilovejoshsturm Thank you. ♡ #LaceySturm #Flyleaf #RockPrincess #VivaLeRock #BlackIsBeautiful #BookWorthReading #ChristianRockers
Break up? :o
Yes! Even the word is hurtful to say. The word itself brings a little pain down your throat.
This means that you wont be doing life with the person you fell in love with, you wont spend hours on the phone, you wont hold hands with the one who makes the whole zoo erupt in your stomach. You both have gone your separate ways and now your left alone. Holding onto just photographs and memories.
So many have asked me: “What is up with you and Roy? Why did you guys break up? You two made the perfect couple etc…
I wont share the reasons why our relationship fell apart, but I do want to say this: He was the greatest boyfriend a girl can ever ask for :)
Now, you may be thinking: “She still loves him” I wont deny that fact but I also want to be clear that the end has come and we wont be having awesome, Jesus loving kids lol [all in good humor] Yet, thankfully I find myself in a different stage in my life where I don’t find comfort in what the world believes I should do to get over my ex.
The world wants you to: Talk to other guys immediately, go out dancing, flirt with guys, date around, GO OUT!!!
Now, I am not saying stay in and get under the covers and eat Ben & Jerry all day but I do want to say this: Give your heart time to heal and GIVE IT TO THE HEALER. <3
Before I became a Christian, I would run to everything and anything that would give me attention. Knowing that I am wanted [even if it wasn’t from the guy who I REALLY wanted to want me] but I became a conformist. Just letting anything sweet, loving talk, gesture take me away to a “love land” that I desired to be in. But deep inside me I would say: “If only _____ would be the one that I am with right now and not with this dude.”
Ladies, let me tell you: It’s a gross feeling to be stuck in love with someone and day dreaming about that person while being with another.
I would run to drugs and alcohol…to make me forget about this heartbreak I was in. I would run to friends who would just say what I wanted to hear or what I wanted them to say. [Bashing dude, worldly advice etc…] I didn’t have no one say: Give it to JESUS <3 Let Him heal you from this.
Back then I would have said: PSh! what can He do? If He saw this coming why didn’t he stop it?
I can sit here and tell you ladies: His pen is far better than mine. I cant write my love story but He can. The Creator. The one who exudes love.
There are things that God allows to show us to stop relying on men, on ourselves to find happiness. He wants His bride back. He wants us to fall in love with Him as we did when we met a guy and everything is awesome. Your first love. <3
Ladies, don’t go running to every guy that gives you attention, don’t go running back to your exes, don’t go back to “Plan B” but RUN TO JESUS. He is the only one that can comfort you like a warm blanket. He can hug you and kiss you with such love you thought was over when you and your guy ended.
in the words of Paula White:
=Jesus Heals. World distracts.= Sit at home and read, take time to worship the King and let Him love on you. Be still.
You are never alone, He is with you. Closer than your breath <3 Give it time to for your hearT to heal. Stay in prayer and talk to Jesus, let Him know how you feel. Call some sisters over and pray together.
-Books I recommend to read: Let’s just be friends by: Norman Wright
Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem,
by the gazelles, yes, by all the wild deer:
Don’t excite love, don’t stir it up,
until the time is ripe—and you’re ready.”
(Songs of Songs 2:7, Msg)
