15 Aug The Whole Picture.

Happy Monday, Friends!

Decided to get on here and blog as its been a couple weeks. I am going to create a list of goals, and blogging weekly is going to be on that list. Because it’s been something God has put on my heart, and it really brings me back to a place that is comfortable and vulnerable and just genuinely authentically me. I am a blogger at heart, with all the other things I am juggling or working on – it all stemmed from my blog. So whenever I get the chance to just write, I need to make sure I take it. Here’s the chance for me today and I really want to chat about something that is hard or has been hard for me, but the other day as I was talking to my sis, Aisha, we got enlightened about something from our Heavenly Father and I just want to share it with you. Will you listen for a minute?

04 Aug The Faith Journey.

It’s been awhile since I’ve consistently written on my blog. I’ve been saying for awhile that I am going to start blogging more and it just hasn’t happened the way I have wanted to. As I write this, I have my son AJ sitting on one leg trying to grab the keyboard on my laptop and on the other side of me is my 2 year old, Layla, whining about something. I literally don’t know why, but does it matter? At this age, anything can throw off a tantrum 0_0

This is life right now. Trying to go forward with kids in tow. This is the motherhood journey. And its hard. Right now things mentally are harder than I want to admit.

This whole faith thing is taking a new form for me.

I didn’t realize how much I didn’t truly have trust before. Like it was much easier to trust God when I felt like I had a backup plan. It was always so simple for me to believe God would work something out when I had already figured out a backup for if He didn’t come through. So, as I look back I could totally see that was doubt. That I trusted Him enough, but if all else fails I had plan B. But now my faith journey has changed. I am finding myself often without a plan b. Like back against the wall, God HAS TO come through. With my son’s health, my art career, motherhood woes, everything.
