immorality – lust, perversion, masturbation, pornography, fornication, sex
dreams, etc. – we’ve all experienced it in one form or the other. Earlier on in
my walk with the Lord, I have personally dealt with sexual immorality in
different ways. Although I remained a virgin until marriage, I dealt with lust
and masturbation which of course led to sex dreams and fantasies. I had to
first acknowledge that it was a problem and that it was a sin before God before
I could be delivered from it. Even though I wasn’t having sex, it was still not
pleasing to God. My deliverance came in many stages and it took A LOT of
self-denial. There were times where it seemed like I took 2 steps forward only
to go 4 steps back. It was tough and it took some time for me to fully get
free, but I did eventually get free by the grace of God.
There came a point that I got sick and tired of getting beat up by the enemy and giving in to my flesh, so I started to deal with the issue head-on. One of the main things that helped me to overcome was finding Bible verses about the topic and using them to fight. I would write them down, memorize them, meditate on them, and recite them especially when the temptation arose. I learned to war with the word of God and pray the word of God over my mind, my emotions, my body, my soul, and against the fiery darts of the enemy. Some days the battle was so intense that I would have to recite them to myself while looking at myself in the mirror. There were even times that I would have to recite them every day, several times a day, and especially before bed.
A few years ago, I wrote a post titled I Believe God Told Me Who My Husband Is, about what to do when you think God has shown you who your husband will be and how to discern if it’s just your flesh. The post has gotten a lot of traffic, many comments and I have received many emails with stories and questions. I’ve gone through some of the comments and have heard many stories from different people about this topic, some good, some not so good. This is a topic that isn’t talked about much but so many people (males and females) go through it and don’t quite know what to do. In this post, I will tackle a few more commonly asked questions and situations that I have come across. I pray that it brings even greater clarity and it helps many discern if their flesh has been deceiving them. Continue reading
I can’t believe 2018 is just about over. This year went by pretty fast. As I reflect on this year and everything that has taken place, all I can do is be grateful to God for the good, the bad, and the ugly. Overall this year has been a pretty good year for me. Everything that I wanted to happen didn’t happen, but major prayers were answered, I experienced growth in some areas and healing in other areas. God has been good, and He has been with my husband and I every step of the way. 2016 was a very rough year for me where I had to press past a lot of difficult situations and went through some very intense fire. So 2018 has been a year of continued healing and restoration from 2017 and it’s been a year of God reminding me over and over that His promises are yes and amen even after a very trying season.

June is a very special month for my husband and I, it was 5 years ago this month that he called me to tell me I was his wife (June 12, 2012), this is the month we got married 3 years ago (June 28, 2014) and it’s also my birthday month (June 20th). So, to celebrate and in honor of our 3rd year anniversary, I decided to do a blog post on relationships this month. Continue reading
Growing up I was very quiet and shy, I didn’t have a lot of friends, I was never popular and was talked about a lot by my peers. I’ve been a pastor’s kid all my life so I was always told as a child to watch what I do and say because people (church people) were always watching and I, along with my siblings, had to set a good example at all times. Due to all of these factors (and others), fear gripped me at a young age. Continue reading
Ever since I’ve written my two most popular blog posts, My Waiting on God Testimony and I Believe God Told Me Who My Husband Is, I’ve gotten so many comments and emails from you all asking questions about my process and advice for those going through similar situations. Since I get asked the same kinds of questions, I thought I should go ahead and do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) post. Continue reading
This New Year, 2016, marks 10 years since I gave my life to the Lord! I gave my life to Christ at a New Years Eve service back in December 31, 2005/January 1, 2006 at the moment when the New Year was being rung in. 2006 was my first year of actually living for God. I began reading the Bible because I wanted to and not because I was forced to, I actually started to look forward to going to church, and I started sharing the love of Christ with all my peers that would listen. I was 15 years old and in the 10th grade at the time and my soul was set on fire. Prior to this taking place God allowed a series of things to go wrong in my young life that caused me to come to the end of my rope and pretty much RUN to Him. Continue reading
This is my very first blog post and I am super excited to be starting this new journey!
Since so many people have questions about how to go about having a godly relationship and I am a big advocate of doing relationships God’s way, I thought it’d be best to start by sharing the testimony of how God brought my now husband and I together. I was led by God to write the first part back in March 2013 about 8 months after we got engaged and to share it on the Pinky Promise network and on social media. The second part is the update of how God supernaturally provided for our wedding and how things are going now since we’ve become husband and wife. It was truly a miracle how God brought us together and our testimony has blessed many people so far. I pray that it blesses you as well! Continue reading
