Trusting God when you don’t understand

Hey everyone I hope all is well. If you haven’t read my last blog I encourage you to read it. This week of classes and work has been very busy. My professors have been piling assignments from left to right. By the grace of God I have peace. If you guys remembered reading from my last blog that I was not doing good spiritually. I couldn’t understand why I was kicked out of my Education classes. My old apartment I was living at I didn’t have peace living there. So, as I continued to pray and fast and I told God “Despite of whatever is going on I trust you.” After I made that confession to him he start revealing to me of what is his will. I was lead to change my major from elementary education to social work. I can see why he removed me from those education courses. That wasn’t his will for me to be in those classes any more. To be honest it feels so good, that I’m on the right path to graduate soon. I couldn’t understand of why I didn’t have peace of my old living situation. He strengthen me to make my own decisions and that’s actually what I did. I moved to a new dorm and ist better than where I was at a month ago. I learned some things by staying there. I just wanted to encourage you to continue to trust God when you don’t understand. When he comes through for you share your testimony with others. Always remember God loves you.

All about my NEW BLACK HAIR!

I’m a big fan of protective styling ranging from box braids to crotchet braids etc. I’m excited I purchased a new wig recently. For the past month I have been desiring to wear a wig with a closure.  I was kind of skeptical of choosing between the wig or straight hair clip ins. The clip ins were pretty but, I don’t believe in spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on weave. You can definitely find good quality hair for $50. After doing research on YouTube and reading the reviews on the web. I came across this wig its the Freetress Equal Synthetic Premium Delux Lace Front Wig – EVLYN. This wig is the bomb.com. Below are the pictures of me trying on the wig straight of the package.

I didn’t actually start wearing the wig out in public. Until I purchased the remaining products. So that my wig can be SLAYED! LOL! In the meantime I continued to wear my natural hair in a braid out.

After I received my products for my wig. I cut the lace and used my conclear L.A. Girl PRO Concealer color Fawn. To blend in the middle part with my scalp, to have a natural look. I also used Got2b hair glue to lay the closure on my scalp. Not to mention I tweezed  the closure so, that it can have a natural looking part. I also used Creme of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges Control. To lay my edges!

Here’s the final result:

This wig is really thick! In which I love, the only con is that its shed a lot. I would recommend to comb thru before wearing. It’s a synthetic wig but, you can flat-iron it to make the hair more sleek. This wig was worth it.

I hope this review was helpful. Please leave a comment and let me know if you’ll like to see more posts like this every now and then. Also, I’m going to start doing some beauty videos on my YouTube Channel Youtube.com/Brittanidoby so, click here to subscribe.

 

You’re More Than Conquerors

Have you ever read the story of David and Goliath in the book of 1 Samuel? I encourage you to read it, it’s an an amazing story. The story begins with the Philistines gathering their armies together to battle against Saul and the men of Israel. Prior a righteous man by the name Samuel was sent by God to anoint Saul as new king over his people of Israel. The elders didn’t want Samuel as king any more because of him becoming of age. Also, nor did they want his sons to become king either because they did not walk in his ways. Can you imagine being a boss or a CEO and the people around you rejected you?  Saying all kinds of mean words, to your face just like how they treated Samuel. Don’t belittle yourself once they reject you they reject God. Lets continue with the story Continue reading

Do you have faith?

th

Before I start I will like for you to answer this questions silently to yourself that are listed below:

  • Do you have faith as the size of a mustard seed?
  • Do you truly walk by faith and not by sight?
  • Do you truly confessed in your heart that all God promises will happen in his perfect timing?

If your answers are yes or no or maybe that’s okay don’t beat yourself up. Hopefully this post will encourage your faith, so lets begin.

As I was reading the book of Genesis chapter 22 in the bible. I have learned that God told Abraham to take his one and only son, Issac to the land of Moriah and offered him there as a burnt offering. You are probably thinking to yourself why would God tell Abraham to kill his son? Well, God tested Abraham to see if he was going to be obedient. Truth be told Abraham passed the test.  As I continued to read what stood out to me was the verses 10-12 which is listed below.

10″And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.”
11″ But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” So he said, “Here I am.”
12″ And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me”.
New King James Version.
God saw Abraham as a God-fearing man because he didn’t withhold his son from him. Then God bless Abraham and his descendants. Ask yourself this question do you fear God? If God told you to move to a different state and leave everything behind will you do it? Those are some tough questions to answer and being a true christian/disciple includes trusting God. Even when things seems to be going crazy and not making sense. We still have to trust him over man. We definitely don’t want to be disobedient to God and instead lean on our own understanding. Trust me you do not want go down that road. Even our own emotions can lead, to consequences just because we feel like moving doesn’t mean we can just get up and move. If that’s not God will then don’t do it. We must trust God and pray without ceasing. I encourage  you to read Genesis chapter 22 and mediate on it. I’m going to leave some scriptures listed below relating to faith. I hope this post was helpful until than God bless.
  • Habakkuk 2:4

“Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.”

  • Matthew 6:30

“Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith.”

  • Matthew 9:2

“Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.”

A closer walk with God

 

God-please-help-me-today

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, lay, ‘Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?” “And then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers.!’
Matthew 7:21-23
Wow reading those scriptures just gave me chills. Can you imagine on judgment day or when ever its your last day on this earth that you didn’t even make it home as in heaven. As we know we are living in the last days and Jesus Christ is coming soon. Will you be ready? We will all have to be bow down to God when he comes, it don’t matter our religion or race. Over the past years the Lord has been revealing the signs of the end times, specially last year. Paris attack, Oregon State University shooting, the last blood moon etc. Everything in the bible is being fulfilled right now before our very own eyes. Its time for you to stop playing the lukewarm christian role and be completed devoted to God. Are you ready to embrace him? Are you saved? He’s standing there with his arms wide open waiting for you. Once we leave this earth you are either going to heaven or hell. Repent and confess your sins to God and he will forgive you (Acts 3:19.) If you are ready I will show you the steps on how to get closer to God.
1. Pray with out ceasing
Its very important for us to pray every day. In the morning when you wake up, pray and through out the day continue to pray and at night before you go to bed. Prayer is communication with God. If you want to grow in God, then you can no longer settle for giving him second or third or fourth place. Make friendship with God your first priority.
2. Read your Bible
We must read our bible and continue reading it. You can start in the New Testament and read Matthew. Have a journal with you so that you can write down scriptures as your reading. Get to know God and his commandments don’t just know them, but also obey them. God uses his spirit to his word to accomplish his purposes in you and through you to have an impact on the world. We all have a purpose on this earth to give God glory. Yes, I do agree the Bible is not easy to read at times. The passages are difficult to understand but do not let that discourage you. If you are committed to learning more about God and the story he’s given us in the Bible it will guide you change you and keep you close to him.
3. Go to Church
Just because a person goes to church doesn’t mean they will enter the kingdom of heaven. Satan goes to church to. I advise you to pray and ask God to lead you to a church where the pastor is speaking the true word of God. There are a lot of false prophets in this world and they are in sheep clothing (Matthew 7:15) You see that’s why to important for us to know the bible so that you can recognize the pastor from his fruit rather its good or bad.
4. Get Involved in christian organizations
As you’re getting closer to Jesus its important to surround yourself around like minded people who are devoted to God. Moreover, the bible states “Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33. You are probably thinking where am I going to find these people? You can join  different groups at church in your local area. Also Heather Lindsey and her husband Cornelius both sponsor a christian organization for women and men. Pinky Promise and Men Cave. Pinky promise is an nation wide organization for women who  are truly devoted in seeking and honoring God with their body. Men cave is the same perspective but just with men. I added the website links at the bottom.
5. Gospel Music
The world we live in is so full of lust and sin. The music they play on the radio in this generation is beyond sad. Be careful of what you listen to cause certain songs can start planting a seed in your heart where Satan can take advantage of. For instance I don’t listen to love songs because that will cause a seed to plant in my heart. When I get married one day to my husband then  I will listen to love songs. HA HA!! Also be careful of what you watch on television.  Stop listening to music and watching that garbage on television that speaks about sex, lust and profanity. Instead listen to gospel music such as Smokie Norful and Marvin Sapp. Turn that gospel music up and start dancing and praising to God. He is good all the time!!
If you have not receive Jesus Christ as your Savior after reading this would you say this prayer out loud with me:
Father, I ask you to search our hearts forgive us for every wrong we have done and cleanse us from every secret sin. Free us from every distraction, ungodly relationship and hindering spirit that stopping us from getting closer to you. I pray that we can continue to be set apart and be completely devoted to you Lord. In Jesus name, Amen!!

Its Just The Beginning!

Join me as I strive to live out this Christian walk, while allowing God to shape and mold me into the woman that has called me to be. I will share stories about my life, quotes and anything else God places on my heart. I hope you’ll be blessed by my posts and continue to seek God. Feel free to interact with me, and share with your friends and family. Oh yeah, always remember, JESUS LOVES YOU!
