I’m Blessed!

Hi, Good Morning ya’ll, how are you doing today?

Well me, I am just fine. This year has started out a little rough and challenging; especially in three areas; finances; miscarriages and first trimester blues; but even though things are still a bit challenging now; I see my life turning around like I knew it would and it feels wonderful.

My mother and little sister  Tatyanna (10 yrs old) arrived here safely, Sunday  at about minutes to 2 a.m; July 26th, now we have a full apartment; I can’t tell you how much I am glad to see them; how grateful I am they are here and I want them to have the best experience of their lives; well until another best experience of their lives come along. So far so good; she (my mom) has only been here two days and those days already have felt so full and rewarding.

In the last two weeks; things have really began to turn around for us financially; I mean we still have a lot of catching up to do but jobs are coming; God is providing; our fridge and cupboards are full; in the last two weeks; I have received physical and spiritual blessings that I that I have been praying for, for so long; I am eternally grateful to my Heavenly Daddy; it really makes me want to fight to improve myself, strengthen and improve my attitude, especially during the tough times, so much more. I want to be the woman he designed me to be; I want to bless and praise God for blessing me; not only with the physical items; but with the wonderful, loving, kind hearted people in my life; awesome siblings; the greatest husband a woman can ask for; the most beautiful and sweetest mother a girl can be blessed with; the smartest, prettiest, most athletic, confident, talented daughter in the world; a wonderfully active baby boy in my tummy, who is staying healthy for mommy, a loving Church-family and so, so much more. Thank you God; Thank you, Jesus.

From conversations I have been having with my mother lately; about my life and even things she can see for herself without me pointing it out; I realize how favored my life is and always have been; despite; financial and anxiety troubles. Did you know that I have hardly had to buy a single thing for my baby girl since I have moved to America? Do you know I have free medical care and my daughter will receive free schooling in September? Did you know I have hardly shop for my own food for the last two years; and believe it or not I have sort of complained about that. Did you know that my God (hopefully your God too) is an awesome God? I certainly do.

I often wonder why God has found favor on my life; is it because of my kindness and generosity towards others; is it because of the tithes we have paid whenever we received a payment of some sort; is it my prays, the prays of others or my mother’s prays over my life for all my life (like I am doing for Kytara and Kenei now); is it our service to our church; is it God’s grace or is it because we accepted him as Lord and Savior; I think it is all those things and maybe so much more. I know one thing; it’s not just because I am good looking (smile). Once again; thank you; God Almighty.

Today is my dad’s 52nd birthday (another blessing) and tomorrow is my sister Arriel’s 16th birthday (another blessing). I hope I can in some way make both those birthdays special; for my dad; a phone call and my sister, so much more.

Please pray; my family and I have a great summer; we handle the heat well; we receive all or many of the desires of our hearts; happy birthdays; enjoyable and successful Vacation Bible School, final youth meeting until September (Friday, July 31st), trip to a theme park (Aug 15th) with the Church, baby shower and more. Share with me your prayer request and I’ll pray for you too.

Love Latisha

    Hello,How are you today,i was touched by your posting and i did not know of this site.i am so happy for you and your entire family.I would like to ask you to pray for my family as well.My husband has just started a new bussiness and i realize the first yr is the hardest.We have really been struggling for the past few months. Our marriage has been tense,bills are piling up and that causes more problems on top of other things.I really feel my husband is so stressed to the point i think he might have a nervous breakdown or a heart attack or stroke because he worries so much.I tell you i pray but then the care of the world gets me to a point i just stand and say Peace,peace,Peace but at times i feel like i did something to deserve it and i cant ease the stress and worry away.I have 3 girls, 1 in 9th, 1 in 10th, and 1 in the 11th and they are great and i am so thankful for they are healthy.I have prayed and prayed and i have been in this storm for a while now and i promised the Lord that i was gonna wait and i am.I just need some encouraging words for i truly dont know what to do but stand.Please pray for our family and thank you for listening and i will keep your family in my prayers.
    Thank You

      Hi Annetta,

      Believe me, I understand what you are going through. I most certainly will pray for you and your family. I would also like to leave you with this verse, ” My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” James 1:2-3.

      Believe me, this experience is working for your good. God has a plan for you and your family, and its a good one. Keep the faith, do your best to stay strong and keep up a good and faithful attitude while this is happening with the knowledge that this experience is shaping you and your spouse into the people God designed you to be.

      Encourage your husband not to give up and you have enough faith that you all will succeed for the both of you, he’ll remember you for that when you have made it to the other side of this journey. God will provide all your family’s needs during this time, like he has done for all His children.

      I’m praying for you.
