Are you Unforgivable or Irredeemable?  

Have you ever wondered if the way you live impacts your ability to be saved by God? Are you irredeemable because you’ve gone too far and wide? Thinking God could never forgive your sins because they’re unforgivable. I’ll have to disagree with you because I too use to think this way before Jesus saved me from myself. I now see God differently not because of anything I’ve done but through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Growing up, I did not go to church, read the bible or have a religious upbringing. In the summer, my grandma would send my cousins and I across the street for Vacation Bible School. I thought it was just to get us from hanging around outside playing games. We hated every minute of it but I believe the Lord used Vacation Bible School to plant seeds into our soul. From that moment on I always thought church was about following rules dressing or acting a certain way. Knowing and memorizing the scripture and only being able to be around the church community. At the time, I was too young to understand. Those religious thoughts did follow me to adulthood until God showed up and showed me something different. The story on how I was randomly saved one day is available on the Saved by Grace blog.

Before I was saved, I use to think the things I’ve done were not forgivable and that God was always judging me and wanted to bring his wrath and judgement down on me because of my choices. Recently, I read 2 Chronicles 30: 17-20 NIV.

17 Since many in the crowd had not consecrated themselves, the Levites had to kill the Passover lambs for all those who were not ceremonially clean and could not consecrate their lambs[a] to the Lord. 18 Although most of the many people who came from Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun had not purified themselves, yet they ate the Passover, contrary to what was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, “May the Lord, who is good, pardon everyone 19 who sets their heart on seeking God—the Lord, the God of their ancestors—even if they are not clean according to the rules of the sanctuary.” 20 And the Lord heard Hezekiah and healed the people.

The people were not walking in the ways of the Lord and Hezekiah being the good king at that time, was restoring the people back to the ways of the Lord. This was the first Passover they had in a while. I immediately thought the people were not going to be able to be apart of Passover since most had not consecrated themselves. But Hezekiah prayed that the Lord would pardon those who sets their hearts on God but were not clean by sanctuary rules. And God in all his graciousness healed the people. He could have been angry and had the earth swallow them up but God pardoned the people and healed them. I could not help but notice His compassion toward us even though we mess up so many times. He is willing to forgive us.  Also, that God changes his mind.

Throughout the Old Testament, I see God over and over again bringing judgement to His people because they refused to acknowledge and seek Him. God continually found ways to redeem His people, eventually sending His son Jesus down to earth to save us all. We are now all able to be saved. Romans 10:9-10 says

 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

The Lord is just so beautiful, and I truly don’t know another like Him. I say all this to say that regardless of what you’ve done you’re not irredeemable or unforgivable there is nothing God can’t forgive unless you willingly decide to reject him and not accept Him as Lord and Savior. I don’t want that for anyone. Once we accept Him into our hearts as Lord and Savior and are baptized in water we receive the Holy Spirit who will lead us into all truth and from there is where my life started to change. Be blessed and have a great week!

Happy Valentine’s Day 2023

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love seeing other people in love, being in love and just the concept of being loved and loving someone. It’s just so beautiful. I recently saw Redeeming Love on Amazon Prime and I must say the production did a great job creating a visual image of what it may have been like for the minor prophet Hosea marrying a prostitute. It’s not the same but you can tell it was inspired by the minor prophet Hosea account. The thought of loving someone that’s incapable of loving you back breaks my heart. It also gives us an image of ourselves, all God does is love us and want us to love Him too. We’re incapable of love unless we know Christ because we are only able to love because he first loved us. “We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 NIV. Love only exists because we’re loved by our heavenly Father.

If you plan on watching, get your tissues ready and note that some scenes may be inappropriate. With it being Valentine’s Day, this is a romance film to watch with your significant other if you just want to spend some down time together skipping the long wait times at restaurants. I pray that your Valentine’s Day is filled with love, peace, and lots of romance. Be blessed and have a great day!

Happy New Year 2023

I know I’m late but Happy New Year! I hope you’ve had a great 2022 and if not I’m grateful you’re here today. “Today is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalm 118:24 NIV.  Be encouraged that if you’re still here there is still work for you to do on this earth. The Lord has put a plan and a purpose in each of everyone of us. It’s up to us to seek Him to find out what He wants us to do.

How do you seek Him you ask? It’s fairly simple through prayer, opening the bible and reading it. That’s it just finding time in the day and dedicate it to spending time with God. I pray that have a great day! Be blessed.

Happy Mother’s Day 2022

If you’re a mother, Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you’ve had a great day. My day was filled with chores and some lounging around. I need more rest now that work starts tomorrow. Pray for me! I hope you’ve spent the day loving on your babies and doing whatever it is you like to do. My day was spent sleeping in to 7am, spending time in worship and prayer, going to Starbucks, grocery shopping, prepping dinner, watching a movie and ended up taking a nap during most of it. I’ve been tired for a few days now but for some reason I am unable to take a nap during the day. Every time I try to nap, I just end up closing my eyes still awake then eventually getting up. It was a late decision to get to my laptop today and type some words before calling it a night. Encouraging moms this evening that you’re doing a good job. Our work is challenging but it brings much reward in the end. Keep pushing to be the best version of yourself and don’t be so hard on yourself when you fall short. May God continue to give you the wisdom and knowledge to care for your children in Jesus name. Until next time, have a great night!

Jesus is Home

Recently during a time of prayer, I said Jesus is home which is a something I’ve never said or thought of before until that moment. What does that even mean or look like? All I can think about is home, a place that ideally will be clean but not always, warm, inviting, a place to raise my family, care for my husband, a place to be myself without any judgement and a place to rest. The last blog talked about the cost of following Jesus; one being not having a place to lay his head. Jesus was always on the move during his ministry, continually being invited into the homes of others. What even makes a house a home? The people in it and I’m sure other things. We are in Jesus which makes him our home. The cost of following Jesus may leave you homeless, but Jesus is home He is eternal. The home is complete, all the renovations are done, and it was completed at the cross. He bore our sins, died and was resurrected on the 3rd day. The veal was broken and restored relationship with man and God. He is our home here on earth and in heaven. Sharing this for the benefit of others, make time to go home daily. In Jesus name. If you don’t know who Jesus is but will like to He invites you in with open arms. Romans 10:9-10 says “that if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” May God bless be safe out there.

Happy New Year!! Welcome 2022

Happy New Year!! Welcome to 2022 I know it’s been a while, I really wanted to see if God truly called me to this. It was getting really difficult for me to continue to write and manage my day to day. I guess that was the problem I was relying on myself way too much. I assumed it was not a calling for a moment, I thought this was something I was just doing for my benefit because others did not read any of the content, but God says different friends. I can’t go back and undo the 2-year break but I can start from here. I also wrote a children’s book last year that’s available here on Amazon.

With this new year upon us and all the challenges that seem to impact us with Coronavirus I want to encourage you today that there is someone with you in the mist of all this. Your Father in Heaven “will never leave or forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6) He is with you holding your hand during this time. Don’t forget to thank Him when you get a moment. All around me just seems difficult and challenging but I know what I am going through is nothing compared to what others are facing today. I pray for you today. I pray that God will give you eyes to see where He is in your today. May His peace that surpasses all understanding rest on your heart and mind. May you find comfort in him today regardless of what you’re going through. In Jesus name, Amen. Be blessed and have a good day!

Happy Valentine’s Day 2021

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!! Have you ever-desired love? A good love, a love like no other where the other person sees you, hears you and genuinely loves you. I use to desire this so badly I just wanted someone to love me the way I love passionately and deep. I’ve come to realize that no human being can really love me that way. We’ll talk more about this in a little bit. 

While reading the bible this week, my heart broke so much for Leah. I’ve read this account a few times already but never saw how much despair Leah was in after marrying Jacob. If you’ve never read the account of Leah and Rachel, I’ll provide some background but suggest reading it for better insight Genesis 29:16 -30:22.

Jacob is Leah’s husband, their marriage began because her dad Laban tricked Jacob. Jacob thought he was marrying Leah’s sister Rachel which he worked 7 years for free to marry. Laban gave Leah to Jacob on their wedding day but Jacob did not notice until the next day that his bride was not Rachel. Laban’s reason for the trick was that it was not custom to marry off the younger daughter Rachel before the older Leah. In reality Laban wanted 7 more years of free work. Jacob eventually marries Rachel a little while later and agrees to work for Laban for 7 more years. Jacob loves Rachel but fulfills his obligation to Leah and cares for her too.  “When the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, he opened her womb but Rachel was barren” [Genesis 29:31 NIV]. Leah gives birth and during that time women will name their children after what they were going through. Leah has 4 sons and more later on but it isn’t until the 4th son Judah that she praises God. The first three sons she hoped would grab the attention of her husband and make him love, see, hear and be attached to her. 

Leah realized that God was the only one that truly saw her the entire time. God saw her pain, her pleas and petitions to Him. My heartbreaks for the unloved, so reading this was so heart breaking it reminds me of a daughter crying for her father or a wife with a husband that despises her and all they want is to be loved, respected and honored. I’m writing this to tell or remind anyone that they have a Father that loves them unconditionally. Before I was saved, I remember feeling so alone as if no one could love me the way I needed to be loved and walked around with a void in my heart.

This story is a perfect example that true loves only comes from one source. God is the only one capable to love us unconditionally the way we need it. The only way to get to him is to accept Jesus into your heart.  Romans 10:9-10 says “that if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” The void in my heart started to fill for that moment and continues to fill more and more everyday.

Happy Valentine’s Day and stay encouraged that His love is one of kind and that real true love only comes from one source. Keep your head lifted!!

Happy Mother’s Day 2020

If you’re a mother, Happy Mother’s Day!!! Hope your day was filled with some fun, relaxation and quality time with the kids. This quarantine has been awesome when it comes to my selection in clothing. It now consists of some sort of comfy material, this is the first year I decided to go outside with a sweatshirt and ripped jeans on Mother’s day. I’m usually dressed up or at least in a dress and boy was it a blessing to just be myself. I share this to encourage mom’s today to embrace your true self and walk in confidence. Regardless of what others might think or say the Lord calls moms accept the calling with confidence. Proverbs 31:30 remind us “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” It’s awesome if there’s time in your day to look nice all the time but if their isn’t, it’s okay your relationship with the Lord is more important. Be blessed and have a great Mother’s Day.


With Valentine’s Day behind us, I could not help but think about love. What does love truly means? I can tell you first hand its not always butterflies and happiness. I believe love is truly a choice, a choice to love someone even when they’re unlikable or unlovable. A choice to forgive the person that wronged you, a choice to admit that something is not quite right in the relationship, a choice to speak the truth in love, a choice that your spouse is not your enemy, a choice to not respond when you really want to etc.

While pondering on what to write this verse came to me. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NIV

In God’s love for us He sent His one and only Son to us here on earth. To save those who believe in Jesus to have eternal life. How deep must God’s love be for us, that He sent His only son generations before we were even born to be save us. It’s a beautiful thing that Jesus sacrificed his life for us to complete God’s will. I know we can’t love each other how God loves us because He’s God. I’m pretty sure He wants us to love each other how Jesus loved here on earth. So what does love truly mean it’s making the choice to love someone even when it difficult. Be encouraged!!

One Step One Day At A Time

Have you ever been in a place where you’re not even sure what you’re here for or what you’re suppose to be doing in this life? It’s just the same day to day stuff, get up read the word sometimes, pray daily, care for all the children, pick up the groceries, make all the meals and being the only one in the home that cleans, so your home looks like a tornado most days. I want to save my children from things I experienced and was exposed to as a child but can’t watch them every minute of everyday. Also, I want to ensure they make better choices because they have been given better tools and know the Lord. I’ve been there, matter of fact I was there this morning and then church service today changed my perceptive.

It’s not about me and never will be it’s about sharing the good news with others that are dead on the inside, filled with a void that can not be filled by anything available in this world. Only JESUS can fill those broken/empty spaces.

My children are not really mine, they are my responsibility right now but belong to the Lord, it’s not my job to worry about them but trust that He has them in the palm of his hand. I will continue to keep growing to be the person He has destined me to be from birth. Cover your children in prayer and may the promises of God be over their lives and may their God fulfilled destiny come to pass.

May the chains and bondage that have been holding you down for so long be broken in the name of Jesus and may you see the world from God’s perspective. You are capable to fulfill the call because God is with you. He knows your faults, strengths and weaknesses and is working everything out for your good. I really do hope this encourages you just as much as it has me today.

And if you don’t know Jesus Romans 10:9-10 says “that if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
