As Time Flies

As time flies,
Life implies
She complies
With its lies.

Darkened skies,
Teary eyes,
Choking sighs,
All the, “Whys,”
Bring despise.

She replies:
*Seeks demise*
God denies.
Real life faith,
In disguise.

So she tries,
And applies
His Advice
To revise
Her surmise.

As time flies,
Each tear dries,
Faith defies
Life’s chastise.

20 Must Study Bible Study Topics

Last year, I took Joyce Meyer’s #3030challenge. I studied the Bible daily for 30 minutes then posted what I learned. I’d like to go back and share some of the topics that were particularly eye-opening. I hope you find them helpful!

The Baby Mama of Noble Character

Christian women love comparing themselves to Proverbs 31. I think I would, too. Except Mrs. Proverbs 31 is a wife and I’m not. I’m a single mother. Some days it hurts knowing that I don’t have the perfect family. After all, no little girl says, “I wanna be a baby mama when I grow up.” But I do try to live a life as close to the Bible as possible.

Not just for me, but for my Nugget. I can’t raise her to love the Word if I’m living like a heathen. So I take the Bible and incorporate it into my life as best I can. Hoping that somewhere along the way my daughter will see the importance of following Christ. If I fail in every other area, at least she’ll have Jesus- which is really all she needs. Until then…

Based on Proverbs 31:10-31

Stay in Control

So last night I prayed for humility. I knew it was a prayer that needed to be said because I prayed each word with a little bite.

Like my ego was saying, “I don’t need to be more humble. I’m perfect as I am and humility is for p-” and my spirit was like, “Shut the hell up, ego! I’m tryna keep us out of the eternal pit! *Clears throat* As I was saying Lord, help me to tame my arrogant ways.”

And, yes, I recognized the possibility that I may suffer from schizophrenia. But that’s irrelevant.

The point is, I’ve started telling myself, “no.” Yesterday I got home after work, ready to chow down on some lit sushi. But then I realized I wanted it too much. So I decided to fridge the food, shower, and straighten up a bit. Then ate.

Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control. (Proverbs 25:28)

It’s pretty empowering to feel in control of your own behaviors. Spirit leading the body and not the other way around.

Stay in control,

MEpiphany

Due to the craziness of the start of Fall Semester, I missed my appointment with the psychiatrist.

As a result, I didn’t have a prescription waiting for me after I went through the last battle.

Note: I thought I typed bottle but during the re-read, I see I put battle. That’s even better.

I am going to get that appointment and prescription taken care of this week, though. I know I need to be on medication, because I get to the point where I can’t even stand being around my own emotionally unstable ass. >.<
