One of the EASIEST things to do is repeat past mistakes because of impatience. One of the HARDEST things to do is wait because nothing seems to be happening. Today, I encourage you to WAIT!♥️

Y’all, yesterday was one for the books! I was having an emotional breakdown (being very honest and transparent). I had reached my limit of frustration and everything I had been bottling up came pouring out. By yesterday evening, I had decided to bypass God and take matters into my own hands. Y’all, I’m so grateful for growth. For maturity. For a stronger relationship with God. Yesterday, I almost repeated the same exact mistake I made 20 years ago. Now, I’m crying (happy tears) because this time I recognized what I was doing and said NOT THIS TIME! Nah.. I’ve learned my lesson. It’s best to WAIT.

Y’all have a great day and thank you sooo much for allowing me to ramble.



Peace & Patience

So many things are beyond our control. I’m praying that God grants you peace and patience during difficult times, during exciting times (because they can also cause anxiety), and during periods of waiting. Breathe.♥️ Shaun

Here is another awesome post that I found amongst my Facebook memories.

Facebook memory – December 22, 2018

In response to a quote by xonecole: “Don’t go back to less because you’re too impatient to wait for more,” I wrote:

Happy Saturday!! Here’s today’s social media find. As Joe [from Tyler Perry’s Madea movies] would say, “Don’t do it. Don’t do it.” Don’t you dare look back and miss out on what’s to come! Believe me, God is working. He’s ALWAYS working! Now, do your part and be patient.🤗 Y’all be blessed.💕 Wait. God’s got you. Your blessing is coming. Don’t look back. Don’t settle. Goals for 2019.

Well, 2019 was a year of so many highs and lows – moments of happiness, anger, euphoria, sadness, loss and depression. It is one year of my life that I absolutely hate revisiting. But as you can see from my post in 2018, it was also one I was so looking forward to. Little did I know, those high, euphoric moments would help me through some of the worst moments in my life.

Now, here I am three years later, still not settling, refusing to go back to what was, and moving forward. And yes, I am still waiting for whatever and whoever God has planned for my future as well as to fulfill His purpose. Without a doubt, I know the best is yet to come. As Bishop T. D. Jakes often says, what God has for you will not be found in what you left behind. It will be found in what is in front of you. Eyes forward.

God’s got me.

Thanks for reading! Wishing you and your families peace and joy.

Be Blessed



Hello Sunday

The wait…

Word of advice– you probably should keep breathing while waiting. Hold your breath and you might not make it. Just kidding. God is full of surprises. You never know what He’s up to.

Y’all, the wait can be long and tedious. Been reading past journal entries and scrolling through Facebook memories. There were so many instances where I believed I was prepared to receive one thing or another, only to find I was not prepared at all. There was always a waiting period. Sometimes I waited three or four years. Sometimes longer. I noticed that during those periods of waiting, God was pruning and prepping me to receive. During those periods, I became stronger– things that intimidated me before no longer intimidated me. I became wiser– I began making better choices. I was more appreciative– I appreciated every little blessing I received and still do. My relationship with God also became stronger– I prayed and praised more.

The wait…

Be patient during the wait. Be patient with God and be patient with yourself. If you have not received what you believe you are ready for, you are not prepared to receive it. Believe me, when it’s the right time, God won’t keep you waiting– You will receive it!

Lesson– Waiting was and is necessary. I can wait. You can wait. We can wait. God is working.
