I have had the opportunity to meet inspiring women. I also had the opportunity to meet women who just flat out refuse to be inspired. The latter is what causes my heart to hurt. These women have such great potential, yet won't capitalize on it. When given a choice they choose the wrong. The most unique thing is that the wrong seems right to them. Well in their eyes it does. It is like something out of sci fi novel.
I desperately wanted to understand the stand they've taken in their lives. I wanted to dig deep and talk to these ladies and ask them what makes them do what they do? There is no one answer to that question really. In fact some couldn't even answer the question. Which brings me to another of my humm.... moments. And I get them alot you will notice as you frequent my blog. Maybe together you and I can figure somethings out, eh?

I found myself waking up rather early of late. I am a incredibly spiritual person so I could hear the voice of my mother (who is my Pastor) ring loud and clear in my head. "The Lord is talking to you. Get out of that bed and see what he is asking of you". Several occassions I promise you I tried to roll out of the bed and to see what God wanted. But it was as if the body became imobile. I spoke to him via mind and soul during the interim praying he'd forgive my sluggishness.
Those talks when I can literally feel His divine presence are what sustains and uplift me. God in His wonderful timing He shows up and makes things alright. I have learned that when He (God) calls you answer. And when opportunity knocks be ready. Then Let go and let God.
Proverbs 3: 5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."
