We got that Friday vibe😉😉😉
Fall consist of good smelling candles. I live for this pumpkin pie scent, smells amazing.
I have days and moments that i am tempted to do things my way especially when all my focus is on NOW!! Sometimes i am also tempted to make decisions to satisfy my imaginary fantasies. So what stops me from giving in to these selfish temptations? I simply remember the fact that outside of Christ i am weak. I need Him in every moment of my life and at every choice point. There is simply no place safer than where God dwells. ———
I made the choice years ago not to capitulate to worldly principles but to align with His will. Yes i do get tempted to do it my way sometimes but i am always reminded that i have chosen a course and that course is beyond this world.
Nothing fancy...just a warming bowl of oatmeal topped with cinnamon peach and almond butter. Chucked in some maple syrup as well😋😋😋
“Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.”
Luke 12:22-23 NIV
A scripture ☝🏻that reminds me of what is more important. I love a lot of things like blogging, fashion, food(certified foodie) BUT at any point in my life where the things i love become obstacles and stumbling blocks in my faith walk they have to go.
Because i desire to please God more than self and people - That simple. And Who i am in Christ and living out my purpose is more important to me.
When you understand your purpose, it becomes easy to embrace all that there is to you. I have never been more comfortable in my skin.
“ I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I'm like, 'My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don't have it. I just want to chill.' We all have self-doubt. You don't deny it, but you also don't capitulate to it. You embrace it.” - Kobe Bryant.

Made this kale basil pesto pasta topped with roasted cherry tomatoes for lunch. It isn’t a diet, it is a lifestyle💕 #healthyeats #cleaneating
Own your story, love your process and who you are becoming. The waiting, the detours, the in-betweens all serve a purpose. Embrace all that is You and watch God surprise you with all that He is. #ootdfashion #ootdblackgirls #enatribe @tribecalledena
There is no such thing as too many makeup brushes😁😁.
May your day be as flawless as this brush set.

*The beauty of Fall*
About a month ago i was in my bed complaining about the fact that summer was ending. I was not here for the fall😩😩 I wished it could be summer all year (Don’t we all). As i kept going on and on about my selfish desires the Holy Spirit just simply said let’s make this moment a teachable moment for you(Ya’ll know he doesn’t play games, he brings truth!!)
I simply heard “every season is not for blooming”. It took a few minutes for the message to sink in but when it did i was like Word!!!! —-
We all love the summer, i know i do. I like to be out doing all the fun stuff. . But truth is every season of our lives is meant to transform and refine us. In some seasons you will be all the way up, blooming at every turn. But in some seasons the Lord just wants to prune your hedges to bring out the best in you. Those pruning/silent/hard seasons can be tough but they grow and mature us into our salvation and dedicated walk with God.
The leaves change color and fall off in this season, the trees may not look good by the end of season but whatever happens is necessary. Life starts all over when the trees fall off. Fall reveals the true scenery underneath the trees we see; they are bare and vulnerable.
You can say it is a season of loss for the trees but when they stand the test of time spring comes and there is regeneration and regrowth.
Sometimes we need to fall to grow. In seasons where everything is falling apart and you find yourself vulnerable with nothing working out, you quickly realize that only God can be enough. And sometimes He takes us through Fall because that is the place He is likely to get our attention without distractions. The beauty of fall is the simple fact that it brings about regrowth and regeneration.
Though we may not be able to see His purpose or His plan, the Lord of heaven is on His throne and in firm control of the universe and our lives - #maxlucado
Calories don’t count on the weekend😉😉
Sometimes we are blind to the the beauty in our lives because we somehow focus more on the struggles and challenges. I saw a quote few days ago which said “what if you woke with only the things you thanked God for the day before”. And i felt that in my spirit as though the Holy Spirit was convicting me.
These past few months i believe i have focused more on the struggles and where i want to be more than where i am at and the beauty surrounding me. We don’t realize that, not appreciating the present makes us ungrateful to God and blinds us to the beauty of the current season.
I used this picture because it reminded me of the beauty in the present. This shot was taken with my iPhone 2 months ago as i sat in Popeyes (at the ATL airport) on my way back from spending a week with my mom. I hadn’t seen her in a whole year but she was in the US for a program which made it possible to see her. I was leaving a bit sad after all the fun we had together.
Sitting at Popeyes and a bit teary i looked up and saw these beautiful lights. I immediately took out my iPhone and captured this beauty. What would have happened if i kept my head down in sadness? You probably would not be seeing this picture on my feed.
A little Motivation : Don’t get too caught up in the struggle that you forget to appreciate the gift in today. To be alive today is a gift, If you don’t believe me just ask anybody dealing with a loss. Believe me when i say in the right season and at the right time you will get there. 💕💕💕💕💕 #enatribe #everythingnaart
Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.
