Feeling a bit nostalgic tonight.. this photo was taken a few months before I ever took my first drink. The single most dangerous and biggest obsession of my life... oh has time flown. It's been 8 years since I took that first drink. Sometimes when working my program I wonder if I'll ever be the girl in the photo again. I wonder if I'll ever be as bright as I once was (honestly I've got mom brain now so that probably wont happen, lol). I wonder if I'll ever be as ambitious as I once was. But lately here, in light of working the steps, this beautiful girl in the photo- I never want to be her again. All the heartache under that smile and all of the heartache that came after my 18th birthday.... why want to return? God has given me a way to be free from the past as long as I rely on him and choose to live in his guidance. One day, I'll be the woman that God wants me to be. Today is the day that I will not regret yesterday. Today is the day that I will not psychically determine tomorrow. Today is the only day I have.

Maureen told #Jesus that she really missed His Mother coming and speaking to the public. He said: "That era has passed, but the esteem and regard you have for My Mother, in effect, has led you to Me." "The Flame of My Heart is Divine Love. It is perfection. It is union. This Flame is the Kingdom of God's Divine Will. It is the #NewJerusalem." "Once again, I draw you into the present moment. In this moment, realize your sanctification. Surrender to Me your heart. How I desire it! Within the #presentmoment is every #grace you could ever desire, every virtue, every blessing. All it takes is your confident surrender - your 'yes.' " "Your trust, My little one, is everything. The soul that loves Me, trusts in Me. Thus, the #soul believes in My Mercy. He forgives himself and others, and there is no barrier between us." "The soul that succumbs to doubt and fear distances himself from Me. Such a one has lost the reality of the present moment. Such a one is given over to self love beyond reason." "I desire the unencumbered heart. Then I can fill it and mold it to My needs. My need, My little one, is always and foremost love. Love Me! Oh, I desire it! My benediction will then enfold you. Do not long for anything but Me. I will give you all."
This is me reading my devotional. .Its actually dated for tomorrow but I just felt like posting it now. I hope it inspires you to believe in God, In Jesus Christ . #Pray#Believe # Faith #TrustinJesus#Love#Grace#Peace#Blessings to you all 😊 Ask And Receive; "Ask and it will be given to you ; seek and you will find ; Knock and the door will be opened" Mathew 7:7 NIV ---> We are never a bother to God. When we go to Him in prayer, He never thinks , What now? When we ask for His blessings in our lives, He doesn't say , " Haven't I given you enough already? He is a God who loves to give to His people. Not necessarily the things of this world , but rather the spiritual things of His heavenly world----- such as goodness, and grace, patience and mercy, joy, and peace, wisdom and love. This is great news because we will find , sooner or later, that we cannot live up to to His Word without His divine help! He calls us to live as Jesus lived. --- something we simply cannot do in our strength. We need His Spirit's insight and guidance. And we need only ask. ---> Lord, I need Your help to live as Jesus did. I'm asking , and knocking-- and I know You'll answer " Amen!! Thank You Lord Jesus🙏🏻💕
Just in case I’d fooled you into thinking I’ve got this whole thing together...tried to set up for a photo of my @noondaycollection necklace for my friend to see when the phone slipped and I dumped boiling tea onto my arm🔥. Good times. I did notice two things though—my hair hasn’t frizzed out in this rain (thank you hair cream) and, I should wear my lipstick more often.
Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is the ONLY way to heaven! Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. NO ONE comes to the Father EXCEPT THROUGH ME." (John 14:6; emphasis mine) Will you open your heart to Him tonight and allow Jesus to come in? ❤️
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. AMEN. ❤️

God, if there’s anything we should avoid it’s stagnancy in our walk with you! Continue to take us deeper in our faith day by day. Drive into our hearts a longing for more of you!
Father, I want to walk the path of wisdom today. I admit though how easy it is to fall into temptation and give into foolishness and sin. Give me wisdom to know today what it looks like to not even go near the door of sin. Give me the strength by your Spirit and through your promises to stand firm. Amen.
