Guest Blogger Alert! Preserved for a Purpose by My Mommy!

Sunday, May 08, 2016

Mother's Day 2016 is here!!! After having my daughter in 2011, this holiday was a tough one for me. 5 years later, I find myself feeling very thankful to have experienced Motherhood and to still have my Mommy in my life. I was on the phone with my Mother recently and she stated that she was preserved for a purpose! I was instantly intrigued and asked her to write a blog post about it. My Mother has taught me so much about taking care of myself from the inside and out and I am grateful that she can now share this with you all. I am wishing all of my readers an awesome Mother's Day!!!!!!!

Now, for my Mommy's first ever blog post........You can call her Connie but I call her Superwoman!!! Enjoy :)

As I prep for my day, feeling regretful and anxious. Regretful that I am not further along in my career and in life, just kind of feeling like life is passing me by. I walk past the mirror and I say, "Wow, but I don't look so bad!" Instantly, the Holy Spirit ministered these words to me..."preserved for a purpose" So although I am 51, God still has great plans and purpose for my life.  I am excited, not anxious. I am grateful, not regretful about the journey and manifestation for what's to come.

The first half of my adult life, I spent raising my children into responsible, productive citizens. They are not perfect but they are great. No criminals or THOTS. 

I am so excited to be who I am and where I am in my life for such a time as this. I want to encourage and remind YOU that every set back, victory, disappointment or achievement you have experienced is apart of the journey to your DESTINY!

Where God is taking you requires faith, determination, perseverance and resilience. These are all built through challenges. Embrace all of it. 

Jeremiah 29:11 says, For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future! 
 As you learn to trust God's plan over your own here are 3 vital things to do while keeping the faith. 

1. Show up with a made up mind and  surround yourself with people that will encourage you through the Word of God. Let this mind be in you which is also in Christ Jesus. 

2. Have a work out regiment, have a skin care regiment, and drink plenty of water! Take your vitamins and be mindful of the food you put in your body.

3. Have a soul that desires to please the Lord, read the Word daily and most importantly have a relationship with God. Attend a bible believing church and become active within that ministry. 

Keep your faith in God and remember......

You have been preserved for a purpose!!

Happy Mother's Day!!!
