Embracing Me is an opportunity for us to connect with ourselves...learning to embrace the God within. The post that I share with you are very real. The experiences of my life (whether good, bad or indifferent) sought to develop me into a Woman who honors the God that dwells inside of me.

For over 10 years I fought against sharing my life's experiences with the world but I also neglected to fully share my gifts. You may ask why I denied myself to live and the answer is fear! After relinquishing the fear of my own thoughts as well as the thoughts of others I have decided to do and be all that God has ordained. He chose me to share my testimonies through songs, poetry, short stories and encouraging words.

I invite you to travel with me as I journey into yet another fearful place, seeking to please the Father while providing healing, restoration and inspiration as chosen. It is my hope that these words will improve your daily living.

My charge to you: Think Well. Do Well. Speak Well. Be Well. Live Well.

"For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." - Isaiah 55:10-11

"Deep Within...

...You Don’t Know”
By: Stacie J. Whitaker-Harris

You don’t know my battle,
I shouldn’t even be moved by the things you say and do
You’re just angry because I am no longer your puppet
You can’t make me dance to the beat of your drum
Or sing the same old sad blues songs

You don’t know my pain,
I shouldn’t even be surprised by your lack of compassion
You’re just angry my thoughts are now elevated and you can’t control me
You can’t make me lose my cool
Or come apart at the seams anymore

You don’t know my new found joy,
I could have stayed in the box you created deeming it my grave
I could have become bitter, outraged, spiteful, vindictive and withdrawn
I could have decided love was a non-reality for me
But instead, I am elated to have found all the things you could not provide…

Self-worth, abundant peace, joy, hope, strength and the greatest love of all, deep within my own being
