Still Here

As the days are winding down to my new arrival. I have been reflecting on the journey that got me here. The negative comments I had to endure. Or the people who didn't want this to happen and their actions now that they seem to support my decision or act as if they were always there.
 I reflect on how close my relationship with God has become. No matter what throughout this time and especially the beginning I could've never imagined it would turn out like this. In the beginning it seemed as though it was me against the world. Fighting to keep my baby. Fighting to stay sane and do what was right. What I had to do above all else was trust God. Everyone will have an opinion on what you should do with your life but it's up to you to make the right decision for YOUR LIFE!
  What I also wanted to share was some songs with the "Still Here" theme I hope they will be a blessing to you.

Testimony:God is SOOOOOOO Good

I am so happy I really don't know how to start this post. Okay well I am currently down to the wire. Today I officially 36 weeks and 28 days to go. I have been running around trying to make sure things are in order. Trying to get bills paid before I take my leave. Trying to figure out future goals  blah blah.  Yesterday it all came to a head I have been trying to keep stress at a minimum but yesterday I broke down. No one knew. I cried and I prayed to God.I felt so alone. I felt like I was the only one doing everything. That the world was on my shoulders. I have my daughter's bassinet on layaway. I didn't even have her baby shower because I couldn't afford it. No one really knew I had/ wanted to cut back on my hours at work because I physically couldn't do it. I would look at my other friends or cousins who had babies this year or have babies on the way and compare what I had which didn't come close. (I'm just taking you through my emotions)
  I was suffering in silence. Today while my boyfriend and I were out. He said his friend had somethings for us.
Now mind you earlier this month his friend said he would get us something. I never usually get my hopes up or take people seriously. Anywho  he said that he had a lot of stuff. Hours later he said he would go over and get the stuff.
    Honey I opened the door my boyfriend was bringing in stuff so was his friends can you say OVERFLOW. Honey, I don't need the bassinet anymore or playpen. I have multiple things for my daughter.I can't even describe the way I feel. I cried in silence BUT GOD! You never know how he's going to come through for you but let him do his job. Every one doesn't need to know your struggle but take it to God the only 1 who will truly answer and you don't have to worry about your business being out in the streets okay.

Thank you Jesus. Trust him and watch him change things

Breaking Generational Cycles: It all starts with YOU!

      As the time is winding down for me to have my little sweetheart. I have been thinking a lot and  I mean A-LOT! But someone I realized is God has been getting me prepared since I was younger. As a child I observed the way adults treated their children and things they said to them I would pray and ask God to never allow me to treat my child the same way.
      What I have also observed is the older generation not willing to change the generational curses that go on. (As you know I don't mean everyone or the whole world just people I have come in contact with.) The statements that they say are "No one ever taught me" "My parent didn't do it for me" "It's not my job to get the family together"  How can the generational curses ever be lifted if someone is not willing to stand up. Now between my boyfriend and a  we have generational curses that we have to fight for our daughter. If we don't there's a possibility that she will grow up just like us. I am fighting for my daughter. I am fighting to be a better mom. I'm fighting so my daughter doesn't have my childhood or her father's. I am fighting to give my daughter an actual chance in this world. Just imagine if I was to give up that fight where would that leave my daughter?
    That's why this post says "It's up to you" Because some of our elders are long gone others maybe selfish or trying to make up for time lost. We can't afford to keep looking back. Now is the time to try and guide the youth. Show them more than the latest dance or social media entertainment.  And use the time you have with them to plant seeds of knowledge,encouragement and confidence. Don't be selfish. If no one else will you do it. You be that change that someone needs.
