Seal The Deal.

God, has given you this vision. You know what you want to do and what needs to be done. What steps to take, and how to execute the deal… but what if you have no idea how to seal the deal or where to even begin? This feeling has you overwhelmed.. drained and uninspired. What happens when your purpose doesn’t seem so purposeful anymore? What do you do? Although you know good things are happening, but everything seems to be coming a little fast. You then question, “God am I really ready for this?” “I’ve asked you to give me a vision, you spoke to me, you showed me what to do, but I myself feel as if its to much.”

I feel that those of us who have been given a vision tend to get OVERWHELMED and quick to give up and give in! Once the pressure is on, we tend to hold back, and try to hide from what God has provided us with. Are you afraid of your dream? sounds silly but its true, are you afraid of your dream?

chastenyHow are you afraid of something, you envisioned coming to pass? Well its highly possible and happens everyday. We can allow so many distractions to get in the way of our dreams, that we lose sight of the bigger picture.. then fear comes into play, and now we are stuck.. So what do you do?

 

 

For me, when I begin to feel the pressure is on, I take a BREAK! a mental BREAK, a spiritual BREAK! A break to renew my mind and spirit.  Ill tell, the feeling I feel after a well deserved break is GOLDEN.

This scripture has to be something that I live by, I regain strengthen, and insight:

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

One little scripture that holds so much WEIGHT!

God knows us, he knows are dreams and what we aspire to be! He knows how sensitive we are about our dreams! So when he gives us vision we have to take it and SEAL THE DEAL with full force! We are not rush the process or to  give up when things start to get overwhelming or not coming as fast as we’d like, You are doing something right when you begin to feel the pressure is on! Find ways to kill your anxiety, and overwhelming thoughts, if that means you cant be on social media for a week to get it together, do that. Whatever works for you, take a break and SEAL THE DEAL.

twenty eighteen.

Hey Guys! so we are just about a week and some change into 2018! Yaaaaaay!

So far so good? or do you need to start over in 2019? either way its the beginning and we all have to start somewhere. So maybe today isn’t going well but tomorrow just might.

Each year I learn something new, it literally never fails.. & 2017 was more of a “Chasteny get it together and pull through” type year of me. I wouldn’t just say that it was a bad year, but definitely an eye opener. Stepping out on faith was one of them that stood out the most. I had to build my faith game up like 10,000 percent because I felt myself slacking and not believing. Can you imagine how it is to allow every worrying and problem to bother you? It could’ve happened to me, and not to stay that it hasn’t because it has. Although things are going swell, I still have moments where giving up doesn’t sound to bad. I mean I’m cool with it *pops collar*  but that’s not my assignment here on earth, I am called to do something great and if I were to allow everything to get in the way of my faith, I wouldn’t be able to accomplish anything. I would be stuck and lost… I’ve been there before and I never want to go back, but sometimes that spirit keeps creeping on me.

 

 

hello,I have to remember that..

 

God, has shown me so much and I’m ready and willing to gain more knowledge and enjoy this vision he has given me! I have tons of goals and aspirations that I truly want to perfect, I’m ready to give the world what I didn’t have for so long! I cant afford to give up, when I have others counting on me, when I have me counting on me! So, please continue to follow me through this journey.

 

I want to inspire you all as well as inspire and amaze myself  daily!

Lets tackle 2018 and get the ball rolling into our DESTINY!

Stability.

I have never been stable, from childhood on up. I have never been stable.

Nine whole years of my life, I can stay I was STABLE. I stayed in one place for nine years.. but after moving here from California.. straight unsuitability I had a total of twelve addresses and attended four different high schools. I never had stable job history let alone a stable number.

Who wants to deal with that?

I felt as if I was a burden while staying with others, some welcomed me with arms wide open and I appreciated that. Yet, I Here I am, young with a child and I don’t have my own place to live. I was homeless for a total of four years! I appreciated everyone who took me and my child in, but it was nothing like having your own.

It’s hard to gain stability when you’ve been unstable for so long.. but here I can say I have lived in my own home for almost a year, I have stayed on my job going on a year. I have created a routine for my children that hasn’t changed. My son is familiar with his own home rather than someone else’s. Stability wasn’t only for me but for my children as well. Stability isn’t only for my home, but for my finances and spiritual stability.

God has given me my stability. My focus has to stay fixed on him. I look to him for direction rather than my own.

Psalm 16:8- “I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.”

I will not be shaken. I will not be moved! I am STABLE!

Favored.

Favor- an act of kindness that is beyond what is due or usual.

 

I have been a witness to God’s favor. I’ve seen him work in numerous ways, that seemed so unreal, but I knew that God has always been  a way maker.

One thing I have learned about myself is that, I never try to put myself down in the dumps. Sometimes they way my life just sets its self up for me, literally stresses me out! Like im so ready to pull my hair out, But I never worry! The moment I feel myself giving up, I remember that I’m one of the chosen ones. I’m Gods favorite. I have ultimate FAVOR.

I get so excited when I talk about it.

Favor comes for expectancy. When you expect for things to go all wrong, chances are it will.. when you have your mind-set on positive things and positive outcomes, you have that much more relief. Staying  positive always is the best way.  Remind yourself that God always wants what’s best for his children.

Declare favor over everything! Your workplace, House, Car, your children, Your finances!

 

I have witnessed God’s favor with my loved ones, my friends and associates. Little things that I’ve seen him do!! It’s just a beautiful thing! It’s just amazing how God works and how he carries us. I can’t count how many times I have witnessed favor in my life but BOY! It’s something that I can hardly explain… when I figure it out I’ll definitely let you all know!!! I do know one thing is that the FAVOR and GRACE of God is all I got, and I’m oh so thankful! Lord thank you for my relationship with you. I am truly BLESSED.

Lemme pray for you.

 

Short and Sweet Blog Guys!

Have you ever thought about praying for that person you don’t care too much for?

Like seriously, instead of gossiping about them why haven’t you just took the time out to say a prayer for them?

GOSSIP and SLANDER…. it’s all just negative and draining and we have so much more to do with our time! Like drinking water, build are brands, and just flat-out minding your own.

Recently, I’ve had some trouble at my workplace. Problems where my full potential is being unnoticed, im overlooked, and unseen. The emotions that I’ve been feeling here lately because of that has me on edge. I’m so upset; but my anger isn’t solving anything and my anger isn’t going to much me much money either. Although I want to step into that office and slam a pen down on the table and say “Hey! y’all got me messed up! I should knock your papers down!” I’m not going to do it.. Instead I rather pray about the situation, and continue to be a hard worker. I wont be overlooked for to long.

We have to remember that the issues they have with  us is far to big for us to carry!

You have to remember that it’s not your fault that God made you the way you are. You have a define purpose on your life and others won’t like it! They will feel intimated by it. So it’s so very important that you pray for her.. him..and them!

You have ultimate POWER on your life.

Pray against the enemy.
Stand your ground in victory!

God has your back when the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy.. now that’s just unpleasant.

We all have to remember not to get so worked up about things we cannot control and just pray about them. Giving out worries and confusion to God and allow him to work it out. We just have to continue to be positive and fulfil our destiny without letting OTHERS get in the way of that. It’s easier said than done but its a step that we have to take.

Psalm 25:2 I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.”

Choices.

8989D032-AE9E-4787-AA1E-BF745D350FB0.jpeg

Life is all about choices.

Every choice that we make can impact us tremendously.

I’ve had many occasions were I had to make a choice, well I mean that’s like everyday.

How I raise my children, What they will wear, What I choose to feed them etc. Its a choice. I could choose to raise them one way and that would be my choice BUT I have to make sure that I’m thinking of the future rather than the present and the right now. What I instill in my children is lifetime, they may not grasp it all at once but eventually they will get it.

I made a choice to eliminate things that were no good for me, a red flag pops up and sometimes I hesitate just a little bit, unsure of the decision that I’m about to make. “Will be the right one?” So when my mind began to wonder, I try to look at the result of things.. if I stay here I know it wont be good, if I keep this going I know it’s not going to end well. Sometimes I will try to convince  myself that my decision is good one even when I know that it’s not.

 

My choice is to follow God and seek him in my decision making. NO! im not saying that every choice that I make I ask God about, but  somewhere in the back of this beautiful mind of mine, I know that God has been pleased with the choice that I’ve made. Seeking his presence on a choice gives you a total clear path. God gives us clarity, but we also have to use our own minds to know and understand that the choice we make will impact us!!

Life is all about choices people, and everyone has them. Make the best choice. Thinking before you ACT! Understand what the outcome of you choice will be, there are some scenarios were you wont know the outcome, but you kinda have to just take that chance and see what’s out there, and that’s where trusting and seeking God comes into play.

You made the choice to trust him!

Now follow.. and make that choice.

Everyone has a choice.

Pshhh! Quiet.

Soooo, November is an approaching and the end of the year is on its way!

November is the 11th month and what I’ve discovered about the number 11 is that it means awakening and transition.

November is my wake up call month, my transition month to continue get myself in line.

Although I have had a pretty decent year and accomplished so many goals in this year.. November is going to be my QUIET month. Work STILL needs to be done, and I’m seeking Gods voice more than ever. . In this month I will be actively in prayer and caution of what I ask God for and what I ask him to reveal to me. Every word I speak and every move I make will matter! I’m preparing myself for the next chapter of my life.

“November is my month to hear from God.”

So I need my quiet time… no offense taken. I just need quiet time. I’m excited for my next level. I’m recieveing everything God has in store for with me wholeheartedly.

So, if it doesn’t involve my level up.

I will not put my energy into it.

November is my month of Silence..

Rest.

670587C3-BCE2-41ED-B852-4C6337E2ED8A.jpeg

So every week is a busy week for me, im literally on the GO from sunrise to sunset, I hardly get a chance to sleep in or enjoy an off day by actually being OFF.

I MEAN LIKE PHONE ON DND (do not disturb), kids out of the house, just peace and quiet time. Although I would love to just have everything stop and say “Okay , lets just get to this tomorrow.” It’s not that simple, I’m a mother for one and I have to use each day as a POWER MOVE, a productive day to get somethings done. When put off things it only puts me behind, which is quite aggravating. I think once im completely content in life and where I truly want to be. I can CHILL. Right now, im putting in some work.

Keeping myself busy and my time occupied.

BUT

Is that really how God wants us to function?

In this moment, I’m struggling to truly  Rest and Relax in God, Finding some BALANCE and utilizing my time wisely.

  • I keep myself busy, which is great but I don’t rest.
  • I have some source of balance but not really. I cause myself a lot of confusion, from there i’m literally alllll over the place.
  • I don’t utilize my time wisely. Time with God is number one and how much of that do I provide to him?

Although we want the work done, We have to REST.

You can take a day off, and allow God to work. He desires rest for us, because we are not capable of doing every little thing on our own. Sometimes we have to sit back and allow God to work his magic.  We have to take a grip of our overly busy lives, and handle them over to God. Just because you’ve decided to take a chill day does not mean the world will end and what’s needed to be handled wont get taken care of. Chilee REST its OKAY!

My Time, My Time.

I literally laugh at this. Its like enough hours in the day it seems like.

So with all the time that I’m using, none of it goes to God.

I DONT HAVE TIME FOR GOD.

I mean that’s how im making it seem , my overwhelming life seems to get in the way of my Fathers time. Selfish much? I think yes, because of the way I use my time, others seem to get annoyed with me, I can’t always hang out, go here, go there etc.

So what I’ve come to realize is that you need to find some BALANCE.

Balance out your time, for yourself and others. I get annoyed with others because I have horrible time management, and because it has nothing to truly do with them. I haven’t really found balance in it all.. Everything began to happen at once and I start to feel like im about go CRAZY! My emotions began to spiral out of control, so then again I have

NO BALANCE AND NO REST.

SO MY ATTENTION HAS BEEN CAUGHT.

Rest in god, Allow him to move and work in your favor. Ask the Holy Spirit for rest, balance, time utilization, and how to balance everything out smoothly. It seems like there isn’t enough time in the day but there is, you just have to find that balance.

Seek God and Direction, from there you will find balance and rest.

When In Doubt Write It Out.

2EEE192F-F186-4152-875C-979419A39236.pngHey Guys!

So today my blog wont be full of emotion but better yet just a little about me.

Why Do I Blog?

Okay, so I will make a long story short. One night I was up at like 4 a.m., I always wake up at this time, and when I do so I start praying and writing.  After I prayed, and finished up my journal entry, I began to scroll through Instagram. I came across an old classmate of mines page, and checked out her blog. I watched her style of writing and how I could hear her voice through her words. I thought of myself. She was open, she was real and most importantly she was herself. From that moment, I prayed on my decisions called a friend of mine and made the final decision to blog. She inspired me to write. She provided me with and inadequate amount of information, she didn’t withhold anything from me, because we are both different! I wasn’t copying her, I was inspired by her, what she talks about isn’t what I talk about. We both have different stories. Her story will never be mine and my story will never be hers.

As said im the Author of MY STORY.

I felt as if my voice alone wasn’t enough, I struggled with expressing myself and being open. I felt like I wasn’t myself, I struggled with my identity. I wasn’t comfortable with my identity. I allowed others to be my God and speak for me and think for me.

Yes! not being yourself is real!

How did I start?

So, I asked my series of questions and did my research. I spoke with my sister almost everyday, she educated me on how to be consistent with my blogs, post something at a certain time and stick with it, and have our photos done early. (Yeaaa my photos are never done on time) lol but hey I’m still working this out here. So I download WordPress and started from there, I used all of my notes from my phone and began to post. No I never went to school to write, and Yes! I’m amateur as everrrrrr, but it works for me, writing has become very theruapic for me, I literally have a peace of mind. It’s like my escape from the word. I’m expressing myself and that is like so REFRESHING!

But I say all of this because blogging has been my outlet, I feel that more people should write even if you don’t plan on sharing it with the public, write something to yourself.

Release those bottled up emotions!

I encourage you guys to get a journal, planner, cellphone what ever it is and express your thoughts! You let me know how you feel afterwards.

With Love, Chass
