After having myself a good cry last night I have decided to let go of all my worries and cast them all upon the one who careth for me; JESUS! Life is too short to be concerned about people and other things that can’t put a dollar in your pocket or pay your bills. I have come to realize that if those whom you surround yourself with are not celebrating you or trying to be a positive energy around you well then you don’t need them.

I was thinking about some of the things I have had to endure these past few months and I tell you since I have let go of some people including family and things I am much happier, but the reason I had to have a cry last night was because I know there are some things I need to do in order to walk in the newness of God as well as walk in the path that He has laid out for me. I feel Him tugging at me at my heart and He is calling me to a higher place in Him. I MUST obey and heed to the call.

I have found that since I have been walking in Christ for over 25 years my life has been so much happier and things seem to be much better for me than before, I’m not saying that my life now is a bed of roses, but since I have given my life and dedicate my life and time to serving the Lord He has made my burdens so much lighter as He has said He would in His Word. I’m proud to say that I am a believer! I love the Lord with all my heart and with everything in me.

He has done so many great things for me in my life and I can't turn back now! My life before Christ was a "hot Mess!" I was out there doing all kinds of things (not drugs) but just a mess being way to promiscuious, drinking like a sailor, partying like it was 1999, going to work with hangovers, having hen parties left and right, and just acting a plain ole fool, but God! I know in His mind He said about me "let me go down here and save my child before she does something she will truly regret or can't get out of."  The day I got the call from the Lord I was sitting in a night club waiting on some friends, and He summons me to come, and I did. I left the club and never looked back and I am soooooooo glad I didn't.

Life is to be enjoyed, and there are so many other ways to enjoy life outside of drinking, smoking and partying. As a matter of fact I have found that being in a Spirit filled church it has its own party we get our dance on with music just like David did, we dance before the Lord, and it is marvelous in His eyes. I don’t miss the worldly side of living because I had a lot of heart aches from it but over on this side of life it is so much more pleasant, and I intend on enjoying my life as God so see fit for me to.
