Welcome!

Welcome to my Blog! Please feel free to comment, ask for prayer, share your victories concerning depression. We want to hear from you!

Post freely, post anonymously, ask questions.  You don't have to be alone in what you're going through and no! you are not strange or weird or different from anyone else.  Depression is a state of mind and our minds change often.  You don't have to remain in a depressed state.  I don't care what anyone tells you.
If you've come out of depression, let's do our best to lift someone else up.  Share how you've overcome.

I'm delighted and honored that you stopped by and I'm praying for all of us.

My #WAR Story @ #sheplants Today!

My #WAR story for today! 
I learned how to put God first in my life when it came to my relationships. I was known as a girl who, "always had a man". I was proud to always meet someone's Mama. What many did not realize is that I was also unhappy. What appeared good was usually only an outward appearance. I struggled with men who were insecure and possessive. It is absolutely nerve wrecking and dangerous having stalkers in your life, not to mention what I suffered because of them. I struggled with my own insecurities and loneliness through my entire first marriage. In most of my relationships I spoke to God well after I was waist deep in quicksand. Was it all horrible? If you know me, you would say, "girl, you were happy!" Sometimes I was, but the evidence is where those relationships are today. I'm glad that they're over. How does a relationship last when you can't pray for one another? How can God bless a relationship that He's not a part of? I&#…

He's Loyal!

Have you experienced a time when everyone left you and you felt that you needed them the most at that time? Have you ever been friendless? Have you ever known someone who was always around until the moment that you needed them and then POOF! they’re gone? Sometimes one of the hardest things in the world to find is someone who is LOYAL.  By today’s standards it is much more attractive to be selfish.  The only problem with being selfish is that we all encounter times in our lives when we need other people.  Being selfish doesn’t help when the person who’s been selfish in now in need of other people. Do you know that God is LOYAL?  Yes, He really, really is.  He promised to never leave us.  He’s always there to help us.  He’s always by our side.  All that we have to do is call Him. In the Amplified Bible, Hebrews 13:5 says… Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He…

Do You Believe that You CAN be Happy?

Do you believe that you can be happy?
Does it ever enter your mind that you can live a life where you can be at peace with yourself and others?
Have you allowed fear, depression, anxiety or the other ills of this life cause you to feel completely hopeless? Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; it will be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was restored to health at that very hour. Matthew 8:13 (AMP) What do you believe?  Do you believe that you are supposed to feel down?  Do you feel that you are supposed to be hopeless?  Do you believe that depression is your life?  In my post Do You Want to Be Happy?, I cover why these feelings, while we experience them, that is all that they are meant to be experiences.  These experiences build you, they are not irrelevant.
It's time that you believe that you can be happy!  It is God's desire that we live happy lives, even if we don't feel happy every day.  We have the capability in God to live in peace while all of hell…

Just feeling blessed! Meet my fam and hear my story.

Be Fashionable!

Image
What is fashionable in your eyes?

Most people don't consider themselves too fashionable.  We often visualize ourselves through others views and perceptions, which can cause us to doubt ourselves when we attempt to live up to others' expectations. 

Do you know that God fashioned you with His own hands?
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments. Psalms 119:73 The thing about fashioning and/or creating something is that we take our time working on it.  Even if we make a mistake during the initial creation, we continue to work on it to its perfection.  We love to see a beautiful finished product.  God is not human, so unlike us, He doesn't make mistakes, everything that He created He looks at and calls it GOOD.
You were fashioned by the Master Creator, the God of this Universe.  When He made you He looked you over and called you GOOD.  He gave you talents and gifts that make you unique compared to others. 

You were fashion…
