Not mine to carry

I must learn to let go…. everything is not mine to carry. I will continue to pray, not worry.

When friends let me down, and I have nowhere to turn, the road seems dim because I’m all alone.

Everything is not mine to carry.

I try to help those in need and ask for nothing in return. I make sure that they have food to eat, and a place to sleep if need be, but they don’t want to help themselves and I carry all the weight.

When the burden of people pleasing makes me feel guilty and later enraged, I have to let it all go.  I’m no longer afraid to take care of my heart and keep my sanity… Everything cant be a weight on me… I have to take the time to breathe.

I remember when giving my time to take care of someone else…. that all they’re going through isn’t mine to carry, but belongs to God himself.

LOVE

 

There are stars in heaven and a moon up above but… there
Is no greater feeling than love. there are trees throughout
The forest with natures beauties to behold but… there’s
No other feeling then the love in your soul,so when you are
Sad and sitting thinking alone don’t be sad because your
Love will never leave you alone.

Disgruntlement

 

I remember all too well, of how you left me
high and dry. Digruntlement,contrariar, close
to nothing like a broken guitar.
You say your life is hell and things are
falling apart, but what were you actually
thinking, when you just up and disappeared
breaking my heart?
Sorrow and loneliness, que lastima; I’m use to the same sad songs. I’m moving to another beat now, and someone else will be playing
the drums. You never wanted me, because if
you did, you would have never forgotten or
had to remember when.
So, disgruntlement… hell yea! But I’m over
it now. I remember, but I let go. Que
lastima? Only if you think so.

Where are you?

Lord Where Are You?

 

Lord can you hear me? Can you see my tears?
Lord, I’ve been waiting, waiting all these
years.To serve you with my heart and soul,
Lord your spirit keeps me whole. Where are
you when the worlds corrupt; where are you
when things get so tough? I’m yours Dear
Lord do as you please, I’m your child I’m
on my knees. You’re here with me through
prayer and dreams, Your love Dear Lord is
all I need.

Regain my faith

Regain My Faith

By Sonita

Woke up this morning with you on my mind,
so I kneeled down to pray.
You laid your hands upon my head,
as I cried on the bed. I told you what was in my heart,
you listened and understood,
you told me to never give up, because
my heart was good.
So why am I so sad?
Why do I feel this pain?
Why has my faith in you just slipped away?
Jesus, guide me and build me up,
make me feel I’m good enough
to receive your love forevermore;
give me all your love in store.

Encourage yourself

There was a time, when I was once very hard on myself to the point that I would even find ways of punishment. For example… If I ate too much the day before I would would limit alot of nutritional supplies to my body the next day or work out extra hard until the results were injuries. Or procrastinating on something I know must be  right away… I would in turn over pay a month to make sure that something was paid, and even make appointments for the next day.

I have learned lately within the last few years that feelings are never really right or wrong; they just are. I always felt that I was wrong for being different or doing and seeing things in a particular way. Life, people and environments are different and I can truly say that I EMBRACE, EMPOWER and ENCOURAGE MYSELF daily….. and it FEELS great!!

I cannot express enough how important SELF-CARE is and how you see yourself and things around you can hinder your day to day life. Learning to forgive yourself first and to move past your barriers is not easy but can be done.

As I even share this little bit with you today, my insides are overflowing with Joy and love. I feel blissful and want to scream outloud to world because the TRANSFORMATION I have gone through.

So, I will end with say this…..

NEVER let anyone distract you from your calling in life.

NEVER forget to cover yourself; meaning to pray, self talk, encourage, embrace and empower.

ALWAYS treat YOURSELF and others with genuine love and respect.

LIVE your life with Purpose on Purpose…. Take nothing for granted and try seeing things as neither bad or good but as a life lesson.

I truly hope I inspired someone today.
