A smile can make a difference!

What’s up y’all? How you be?

Not my normal intro, but hey, I’m in a goofy mood.πŸ€ͺ

I really don’t know what this post is going to turn into, but I felt like posting. So enjoy!πŸ€ͺ

I went to my grandparents Saturday and took more pictures… Well, I didn’t take the pictures of myself my mom did.

Those clouds tho…😍
Me trying to act seriousπŸ€ͺ
Probably my favorite
I was kinda scared to do this one, because if you’ve never been on a hay bale… they are high.πŸ˜‚

I’m going to try my very best to write what I feel and not make it sound like it’s all about me and I’m such a perfect person…if you know me you know I’m definitely not, and I don’t like all the attention on myself.

Anyways… I was looking at these pictures and I realized how much I have changed…

I found this qoute that really stuck out to me:

You glow differently when your actually happy.

And that is so true! If you would have met me 2 or 3 years ago and then met me now you would think you just met 2 different people.

I haven’t always been the way I am today… And I’m not proud to say I haven’t always been the best person to be around. I’ll just put it plain…I used to be a ugly person.

I lost my smile… and if I did have one it was fake. I used to have a bad anger problem, it still flares up every now and then, but not like it was. I could literally kill you with one look… again, not proud of it…😬

“You glow different when your actually happy”

I used to never show my teeth when I smiled, but now I can’t smile without showing my teeth.

Don’t tell me that God can’t change you because you have a anger problem, depression, or brokenness, because he changed me! And if he can change a person like me, he most definitely can change you!

I have recently been looking around at my peers and I have noticed that there are a lot of people with the same smile I had… and what I mean by that is, they don’t have one.

And I want to help them know what true happiness is. There is more to life than just surviving…

Recently at youth our youth leader made the graduates of 2020 and the Senior this year raise their hand and he said:

“Y’all are now the leaders of the youth group and you need to step up and lead this youth group and help the younger youth.”…

It opened my eyes, because I am now one of the oldest in my youth group of 40+ kids… I am an example… am I setting a good example? Lord, I pray I am! I have also noticed a lot lately as I’m just talking to some friends and I’ll turn my head and I’ll see several young girls just watching me… It has made me watch what I do now, because I want to be a good example. I don’t want to be perfect, because I will/have made mistakes and so will they, but I want to make sure I am a good example.

I have recently started to step out and talk to the younger youth and grow a relationship with them, because if I can get their trust I can be a good example on them with the Lord’s help of course!!

If I would have had someone take me under their wing at their age, I probably wouldn’t have went through some of the things I did and did some of the things I did. I didn’t have good influences at their age…

I want to see the younger youth on fire for God like the senior youth is! My youth leader just told us to step up, and I’m going to try my best to do it!

Well, this wasn’t how this post was supposed to go, but maybe that’s what I was supposed to say. I don’t know how to end it now…😜

I’ll share some pictures from today after church…😁

Baby Blue was screaming “HAPPY SUNDAY”πŸ˜‚

Okay, that’s all of the pictures of me for this post! Bleh, I know!😝

Well, I hope y’all are staying safe and have a great week! I love y’all dearly, OHHHH!! Also, thank you all for 300 followers!!! I am very honored!! I never thought I’d have 300 people reading my thoughts.😱🀯 Thank you again!!

Choose Joy!

Are you ready?

There is a lot of thing’s going on in the world right now.

I have never seen anything like this in my life. People are cleaning out all the stores. People are panicking.

We are living in the end times. I know most of y’all have hear this all your life and your like “sure…”. But seriously… read your Bible… we are seeing it all come to pass right now!

Matthew 24:4‭-‬14 KJV

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and Pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Is that not the world we are living in right now? This world is falling apart at every corner. The hearts of people are waxing cold. People hate each other. And this is just the beginning… “and then the end shall come”

We are so close to Jesus coming back it would scare most of y’all if we really know how close we are.

Just hang with me for a second…but

If Jesus came back right now are you 100% sure you would make it? Would you be called up with everyone else? Or would some little sin that you haven’t taken care of keep you from eternity with God? You know that thing you do and you keep telling God “It’s not that bad…I’ll get it right one of these days.”. We don’t have time to play games. Are you 100% sure you would make it?? Or is there something deep down in your heart you haven’t prayed about yet?

Matthew 25:1‭-‬13 KJV

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

We don’t know when Jesus is coming back. We can’t afford to keep putting things off with God. We need to get everything right with Him now! We need to make sure we are full of oil (Holy Ghost), so we are not like the 5 foolish virgins that wasn’t ready. We need to get ready while we still have time. Because once Jesus comes back there isn’t going to be another shot to get ready.

Just imagine…

What would all of the coworkers, backsliders, family members, people we see everyday, and I dare to say even some of us, do when we finally realize it’s to late?

What will happen?

There will be such chaos and fear. People running and screaming in the streets…

  • HEY, HAVE YOU SEEN _______??”

And it will finally hit them… they was ready and I wasn’t… I knew God and I didn’t get it right when I could’ve. I didn’t stay ready! And as the endless tears began to stream down your face you began pleading God for another chance…


But there won’t be… you will never see them again. You’ll never get to hug them. Never tell them “I love you”… All because you wasn’t ready! You knew God. You knew what you had to do to get ready but you waited to long. You thought you could put it off a little longer.

Let me tell you… the day of the Rapture there will only be one thing on your mind. God. You will no longer care about whatever you thought was more important than God. Money, fame, cars, friends, a big house, your business, that meeting you had to get to. It all won’t matter anymore.

Why are you playing games with your soul? You don’t know when He’s coming back, so why put it off until it’s to late?

So, I’ll ask you again…

If Jesus comes right now are you 100% sure you would make it??


They found their way Home….

*Disclaimer – To any of my family reading… nothing I say is meant to come off bad in any way! I’m telling the testimony God gave me and it is not meant to do anything but inspire and bring Glory to God. Please don’t take anything wrong! And remember… it’s not what you are, it’s what you “were”. You’ve been covered by the Blood.*

This is My story….

The earliest memories I have are of me and my family going to church. Those are my fondest memories! I wouldn’t trade them for anything. I remember as a little girl I hated going to church but my parents would make me go. (Thank you Mom & Dad for making me go!!). Well, my desire changed June of 2013 when I got the Holy Ghost at 9 years old during youth camp. Little did I know what God had for me…. As I look back now I seen God’s hand on it from the very beginning.

Shortly after Camp 2013 my life changed in a way I never thought it would. I would have to make a decision and answer the call God was calling me too. I was just a little girl at the time. If I answered the call I would be responsible for my family until they came back home…and if I didn’t answer the call I would be lost and Hell bound with them. It didn’t leave me with much of a choice. It was the best decision I made. It cost me a lot but that’s apart of living for God.

So, here I was a little 10 year old girl taking the road I was taught to take while watching my family slowly stray away. I know they didn’t mean too. It was life. problems. Hurts. Work. etc…

My brother kept going to youth until I turned old enough to go and then he left too. When he left, he handed me the responsibility of going to youth and church until my family came back home.

I never thought it’d happened to me… How was I going to stand strong for my family? Was it possible? Why did God pick me? I’m not strong enough! I’m just a little kid….

It was never really a option for me I just did it. I just kept going to church and youth in hopes of maybe one day my family would join me again. I didn’t think I was doing anything by going week after week by myself. It was just something I knew I had to do and if I didn’t do it I wouldn’t be saved and my family wouldn’t be saved.

As I answered the call I didn’t know what the future would hold for me or my family. I honestly didn’t know how long it would take for them to come back. I didn’t think it would be that long but the years just kept passing by and still no change.

God made me a promise though… He promised me they would come back and that is the very thing that made me keep holding on through all the up’s and down’s. I wish I could say I never thought of giving up and walking out of those church doors and never coming back… but I can’t…. I came close….very close… of just walking away. It actually happened last year. I had hit rock bottom and was done with it all. It felt as if everything was falling apart no matter how much I prayed and asked God to bring them back. But I remember the church service that God lit my soul on fire and everything started falling into place. It was July 12, 2019 that everything changed God gave me what I needed to go that extra mile and push it onto victory. After that service all Hell broke loose and me and Hell went to war against each other. I would stay up late into the night praying and fighting Hell off of my family. The devil attacked my body and I was sick for months. But what I didn’t know at the time was that God was working while I was praying my guts out everyday….

I finally begin to see things happening! I knew my promise was close! From around November 2019 to January 2020 I could almost reach out and grab my promise it was so close. We started Revival at my church on January 12, 2020 and God confirmed to me many times within the first week of Revival that this is the year my family is coming back. I had already been feeling it but God confirming it was just the icing on the cake for me! It was just a matter of time… when something good would happen my family would be in shock and I would just smile because I knew what was happening.

The last week had arrived! I had been praying and asking God to give me a sign when it’s time and Thursday the sign came and I knew it was time. I begin praying and having a lot of friends pray too. There’s a lot of details I won’t go into but by Friday night I knew they were going to be at church Sunday!

Sunday rolled around and I was expecting great things to happen at church. My dad took me to Sunday School and they said they’d be at church after Sunday School! I came down stairs from Sunday School and before I got down the stairs someone already said something to me about my parents being there. I just smiled…

Fast forward to preaching – our Evangelist preached about being covered by The Blood. Alter call came and I started to get worried my parents wouldn’t respond… The minutes ticked by… still nothing… so, I did the only thing I knew to do… pray… and by the time I was done praying I looked up and seen that people had started to pray with my parents. And the next thing I knew I was standing there with my parents praying with them and watching my promise come to pass right before my eyes. It was like a dream…. After 7 years of praying for them and fighting with everything in me I finally got my reward!! I was around 10 years old when I started walking this road and I’m now almost 17 years old.

Joy doesn’t even describe how I felt it doesn’t even come close. After church was over I hugged one of my dearest friends and she said “Well, was it worth it? All the prayers and fasting?” I said “YES!!!”. It was worth it all… I’d do it all again in a heart beat for them. It was a very very long and hard road to walk but God was right there by me through it all and I got my reward in the end… I got my family back!

I still don’t know why God choose me to walk this road for my family but I am really grateful. This road has changed me forever it gave me scars but I’m glad God trusted me to walk this road. I would do it all again if I had too. It was worth every mile….

If you have a promise and it hasn’t come to pass yet please keep going! I am now standing on the other side of Victory and I’m telling you it will happen! You just have to keep going and praise God in advance for doing it. You will be so grateful that you didn’t walk way… I almost walked away, remember? And I was just 6 months away from my promise coming to pass.

Maybe you just have to pray a little more…. Maybe you just have to walk 1 more mile…. Maybe you just have to praise God one more time… Maybe your promise is right there!

Hebrews 10:23 KJV

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

This song is what I lived by….

As for me by Jasmine Corcoran

Thank you all for your prayers for my family! Thank you can’t even come close to how thankful I am. Pray for my brother that God will draw him also! God’s able! I’m excited for the new season I’m entering into – it has new adventures for me and my family!

In a Moment…

Are you struggling with something?

Are you mad at a friend or family member?

Are you holding a grudge against someone who has treated you wrong?

I’m sure we all can say “yes” to those questions. Can’t we? Of course we can we are human.

Most of us are caught up with family drama, friend drama, or just drama that the world causes us every day.

But is it really worth it?

It only takes a moment and your life could change dramatically. Anything could happen…

We shouldn’t get so caught up with drama and things of this world when in a moment your life or someone else’s life could be gone…

In the end does the drama or what someone did to you really matter? We shouldn’t hold grudges or try to create drama in some else’s life. At any moment your life could be taken away.

We should love more that hate.

It just takes a moment and life could be gone…

The past few weeks have shown me how precious life really is. In just a moment anything could happen.

Love your family and friends now before it’s to late. Share love, not drama.

I’m not saying to act like life is all rainbows and flowers. I know life is hard, trust me! And I know it’s not possible to always be happy or stay out of drama or to not be mad at a family member or friend. It’s just not possible. But we don’t have to hold onto that anger and let that control our relationship with that person.

We all have the right to get mad every now and then but don’t hold onto that anger. It will only hurt you. I promise! There have been several times where I would have to leave my anger at the alter and walk way. And if I didn’t I knew it would effect my relationship with that person and it would eventually turn into bitterness towards that person.

Now if you know me you know I don’t get mad very easily. I’ve only lost my cool about 1 or 2 times at youth or somewhere. When someone is about to make me lose my cool and make me go off I normally always just walk away. Because I know if I stand there much longer I’m going to say something I will regret. And I’ve learned anger will pass but words can not… That old saying… “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” is a lie!! Words can last a life time and can destroy! That’s why I always walk away from an argument before I start to open my mouth. It’s better to just walk away than win the argument.

So let go of the anger and drama. And love your family and friends.

Because in a moment everything could change…
