College Graduate! (My Story)

ON DECEMBER 15, 2018,  I did it!!! I FINALLY graduated from college for the first time, from Michigan State University (GO GREEN!). All I can truly do, is sit in awe of God's faithfulness, favor, grace, and His leading during this 5 year journey. As many of you know, I got pregnant in my junior year of college. However, I was not your typical junior, I was more like a junior plus, plus:). If you've read mypregnancy story then you know that I considered an abortion because I thought graduation would be impossible. 

How does one continue school with a newborn? I did it. How does one be a full-time student, single, and pay for full-time daycare? I did it. How does one maintain good grades, while having to tend to an infant? I did it. How does one survive college without NO SLEEP, and still be a great mother? I did it. I did all of these things by the grace of GOD. None of this would have been possible without Jesus. Now let's be clear: anyone can graduate college without Jesus…

I'm Pregnant..Now What? (My Story)

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where everyone would know, YOU MESSED UP! A consequence of sin that you just can't cover up.

If anyone can relate, it is me.

Rewind to early 2016, I was completely sold out to God. I talked to Him everyday, I literally RUSHED home just to have my quiet time with Him. I had cut off anything that didn't push me closer to God. This included secular music, t.v. shows, and relationships. I was [so I thought] confident that I was going to literally walk this thing out and not run back to my past. However, my spirit was willing but my flesh was so, so weak.

"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." Matthew 26:41 NIV
My spirit man wanted to thrive and live for God, however, my flesh still wanted what it wanted. I didn't know how far I had strayed, until I realized I was in pretty deep. I felt like I was in the middle of a busy public place, suffocating, but no one …

I'm Ready...But He's NOT.♥

"Lord, It is my prayer that through my transparency, one of your daughters is blessed, convicted, or encouraged in some way......Amen."

So, I sat thinking about relationships in my own life that I wanted to work, but we were unequally yoked. After I came into the knowledge of Christ, I started to think and want differently. Maybe you walked into this with your boyfriend, but he's not serious enough for you. This is for the woman who can't yet shake that one relationship/person you know isn't right. Any woman who's ever felt this way about a man you love, "feel" you're suppose to marry, and want to spend the rest of your life with-yet you just have no peace about him at all. PERIOD. You look for ways to justify his actions or lack of faith, and you just keep coming up empty. You want it to work out-I mean you REALLY want him to be God's best for you...but...he's...not.

A man has to be fully submitted to Christ in order to even begin to le…

"Dear God, I Want My Stuff!"

Have you ever found yourself saying or thinking......:"I want mines, God!" "I want my stuff!" 
It's give me this, give me that, bless me financially, bless me with this job, this new car, a man- and all of that other stuff. God is not interested in just handing you over everything little thing you pray for. He's not some giver of everything you think you want & need. It gets tough because all you may hear in Sunday service is the preacher preaching more about your "breakthrough" coming, getting back all you lost & living comfortably...rather than truly changing your heart & loving God with everything in you, even when your circumstances shouldn't permit you to. When you give your life to Christ, it's not suppose to be a road filled with only roses & sunshine.
And that's a huge misconception among those who come to Christ. They're programmed to believe that as soon as they give their life to Christ: they are just goi…

A Forgiving Heart

What hurt are you holding onto? Is it hurt from a relationship? Spouse? Friendship? Parent? Sibling? Did you know that it is completely possible to let go of the hurt and genuinely love [God's Love] the person that hurt you. How? Through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Let me ask you this: Do you really love God? Like truly, truly love Him? You do? Well you must know then that... ForgivenessiswhatGodcommandsofus. I know it may seem impossible, but you have to take the carnal eyes off, and let God show you. Especially in the area of relationships ! Maybe your ex really hurt you, & I'll never understand exactly what you went through, however, it still does not change God's command & expectation of us. Even if your best friend did you wrong, forgive, let it go, and love them as your brother/sister in Christ.
For me, I didn't want to go to hell because I knowingly chose [REFUSED] to not forgive a person that hurt me. I thought, How can I walk around claiming to …

Why I'll Never Date Another Man...

I haven't always done it God's way. And if I can be honest, I haven't always been too particularly fond of doing it God's way. This isn't to condemn you, [and I pray that if you're reading this, its your true desire to want to do it God's way] but to open your eyes to this very true, very real revelation: God's way is best, worth it, and the only way...
You may ask..."how do you know Gina, you're single!" Have I courted with a godly man? To answer your question no, I haven't. However, in spending time with God & His word, He has showed me some things concerning the area of dating/relationships. And I have had my fair share of dating as the world does. Now I have knowledge of a better way than what I was doing before.
When I look back at all my past relationships, I now understand, why I felt hurt & got my heart broken from many of them. It wasn't solely because I was crazy, insecure, overly-emotional, and a mess. It wasn…
