The Dark House

How many times have you heard the phrase, “Life Happens?”

Reflecting back to my to my childhood, I recall hearing this phrase, being loosely used by my Dad. Like an echo, in response to his own statement, you’d hear “Get use to it.” Pondering within myself, then watching angered look of frustration settle within him, was pretty scary.

We were all programmed. Once he arrived home from drinking, we encountered mood shifts and confrontations. Afterwards came his favorite quote, “Life happens, deal with it.” All verbal conversation, smiles and laugher would instantly cease. The paranoia and fear of us talking behind his back, plagued him everyday. It was all about control, it was like a light switch.

The white walls inside of the house went from sunshine to darkness. Silence filled the cold lifeless house. During the times of silence the three of us communicated with one another by whispering, using jesters and hand signals. My Mother would attempt to make a game out of it, just to ease the tension and stress. We were hostages, moving about the house as if we were walking on eggshells, in fear of awakening the terror. If walls could talk, they would have cried out for help, revealing many secrets…

No one deserves or ever has to accept abuse of any nature, at any age from anyone. If you or you know of someone who is in danger. Tell community service workers or local authorities.

Yonnie’s Words of Affirmation:

God Loves ♥️ Me!

I am valuable, beautifully and wonderfully made by God.

I am more than a conqueror.

I have a voice and will not be silenced.

I will Speak up!

I will Speak Out!

I am Free.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

John 1:5 NIV

Forever Love

Thank you Jesus for being more than enough. Your finished work rescued me from the death of sin and shame. No longer bound, but free indeed.

Father, I am so grateful that you know my name. No longer a stranger, no longer the same, but you call me friend.

You took the time to know me.

The very hairs on my head are numbered by you. It is you who has given me a free will.

I have chosen to follow you.

Your word has ignited in my spirit, it is a lamp unto my feet and a lights my path.

Your love is everything to me.

I receive, I believe, and I declare you as my God, my Lord and personal Savior.

Forever

PUSH THROUGH

Thank you,oh so true!

This is REAL TALK

The fight is real,sometimes it gets hard to push through.

Uread, Upray standing armed;

Many times at a loss of words to say and nothing is making sense.

Yet you wait on your breakthrough.

You declare,

Jesus my confidence is in you,

I know you will see me through.

The battle is not mine it belongs to you.

To hear the words, “I’m proud of you are contagious words of affirmation.”

To hear God say, “Well Done My Good & Faithful Servant is my final destination.

Embrace the Moment

Stop, Pause, Breathe

Stop, Pause, Breathe

It has been an extremely busy day of appointments, laughter, chitter chat with my two best girl, my daughters as the music plays softly in the background.

We spent a meaningful afternoon together bonding. We cannot take it for granted that things are good. We have to invest the time and make ourselves available.

Stop, Pause, Give Thanks

It is vitally important that we embrace our current place in time knowing that God’s Grace is sufficient. He gives us new Mercy each day.

Walking in Your Morning

Rise up,

Refuse to walk in defeat.
If GOD be for YOU, WHO or WHAT can STAND against YOU?

Why are you still trying to fight your own battles?

When God already said, “the battle is not yours, it belongs to him.”

Why are you not casting your cares on the Lord because He cares and loves you so MUCH?
Walk in your MORNING, the TIME is NOW!

Where Are You?

Is anyone there?

Is anyone listening?

Can you see me?

Am I invisible?

In a state and feeling of unconsciousness. Things occur that seem to alter you mind.

They changed the direction of life temporarily or a lifetime It was as though you took a detour.

Maybe it was a sudden break up, that seem to knock you down. It may have even felt like a sideswipe. Left you feeling kinda dazed and a whole lot of confused.

Life is too short. Discover or rediscover yourself. Embrace every moment. Stretch beyond your comfort zone. Remember God is in control.

Present

When I think of the present, I think of the here and now.

The time in which I am in, the moment I must embrace.

The past is behind me, allowing me to look back, learn from the things of yesterday to plan for the future.

The future is ahead, it is in the very next breathe I take.

Whether they are plans of tomorrow or a business that is to come. I strive to maximize this present moment, living it to the fullest you know.

Refocus…Slow Down

Like A caterpillar we often are busy eating, working, moving about enjoy life.

Living a carefree life in the sun.

Moving along from branch to leaf, leaf to branch.

Doing what we do as we live this carefree life.

Slide in, Slide out, doing our thing, not wanting to stop.

Suddenly Getting biGGEr on the things around us, biGGER and BIGGER…metamorphosis has begin to set in.

Waiting, waiting waiting….

No movement, paralysis has set in. A coating, a shield of protection today.

It is now a time of rest… it is process.

A time to take care of oneself.

A time to tune in, no more distractions or interruptions. Securely fastened.

A time to tap in…

Knock, Knock, who’s there?

Good, no answer. You are plugged in. Resting, not pressing.

You are no longer just doing, to stay busy, but take the time out, refuel and live again.

Be renewed in your mind with the washing of the word, as you mediate both day and night.

My life is in your hand. Surrender All!

InHisCare,

Yonnie🌸
