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

How can I say I love God but not love my brothers and sisters whom I see each and everyday?  I most certainly have been one who spoke love from my lips but my heart really truly despised even the sight of the person to whom I spoke.  After seeking and searching, looking high and low for God...Yearning for God's love and acceptance (I really needed to be accepted)...Professing my love to God (ONLY because I wanted someone to profess their unconditional, unadulterated, pure love to me)...I finally realized His love for me is so much greater...God's love is so great that He not only gave His only begotten son for me (for us) but He loves me despite my ugliness.  God loves me despite all my flaws and faults. 

When that pierced my spirit, when I opened to the reality that God looks beyond my blemishes and loves me anyway, I realized I have to love the same way as God...without pointing a finger...without regret...without fear of being hurt...without seeing the flaws of my neighbor...regardless of whether they love me back (YES, God loves us even when we deny Him...even when we don't and won't love Him).  Wow, what a revelation.  I can truly tell God I love Him now and mean it because I love my neighbors like I love Him and I love them the way I love me. 

It wasn't easy LEARNING to love myself but I do and its easier to love yourself when you understand to whom you belong.  It is so much easier to love yourself when you can forgive yourself.  It is so much easier to love yourself when you have an intimate relationship with God who is Himself, LOVE! I love you Lord and I am so grateful you love me!


God my Father, giver of life, friend to the friendless, comforter, supporter, encourager, hope to the hopeless, guard of my heart, lover of my soul, thank you for loving me right where I am.  Thank you for keeping me and bringing to the forefront of my spiritual mind that I am one of your beloved children.  Thank you for carrying me and for caring for me when I lacked love and strength. Thank you for building me in love, for love, to be love, created by Your great love! Bless those who desire real love but are not sure where to acquire what it is they seek.  Turn their hearts towards you.  Wrap them in Your loving arms that they may come to know you as the loving and gracious God you are.  In Jesus loving name I pray, Amen.


  1. The love that you so eloqently echoed can only be understood and found in God, and even then our perspective is grossly limited.

    1. Precisely, Exactly & Absolutely!

      "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" ~ John 15:13

      Who does this? Who demonstrates this kind of selfless love?

      "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep" ~ John 10:11

      Jesus, the Christ! We endeavor to be Christ-like, yet we are self-serving, self-seeking & self-centered.

      Each day we must have our minds purged and our hearts examined that we come to know the TRUE love of Christ AND demonstrate it in the earth as the sons and daughters of the Most High God.
