Bible Literacy in Public Schools?!?!?!

Soooooooo, DT giving praise for allowing public schools to “Bible Literacy” classes, eh?!?!
I find that real laughable! Now, I’m a True Christian and I’m not the type to judge so I might well keep it đź’Ż.
When I found that trending on twitter, I’m like,”Bible literacy? In public schools?
Really?! As a TRUE Christian, I always thought prayer should be in schools. To have Bible Literacy classes?  That’s what Christian Schools, Sundays Schools, and Vacation Bible Schools are for!!”
Now, how can Trump say things like? Let’s rewind all the way back, shall we?
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he was on “Celebrity Apprentice?”
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he turned the White House into “Celebrity Appresident” for firing people?
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he said that he will send all African-Americans back to Africa?
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he disrespecting women by grabbing them on their private body parts?
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he’s talking about “Make America Great Again”?
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he was telling lies of all kinds?
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he messing around with different women?
Did Trump thought about the Bible when he was acting like a big baby to the government shutdown for these past days?
Did Trump even thought about the Bible when he spent all of his times tweeting stupid tweets on twitter?
The answer to all these questions is NO!
He has a lot of nerves to come up with a despicable mess like that. Speaking of Bible Literacy, what kind of Bible is Trump talking about?
Is it the Holy Bible or is it The Trump Bible? I mean, it’s quite obvious that Trump spent more time tweeting tweets than reading the Bible.
Needless to say, he had his former supporter, who shall remain nameless, “Minister” Omarosa calling herself encouraging the Black community to get on the Trump Train and bow down to Trump like he’s some god. Now that’s the thing everyone will never forget.
If I have a message to give, it would be these words:
If we forget we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under. The government making sin legal does not make it right.
America will NEVER be great again until we put God first and read the Word of God for ourselves. But if you really want God to bless America, stop legalizing sin!! If you were so hungry for the LORD, you wouldn’t be so full of yourself! And the way you firing people on “Celebrity Apprentice”, guess what. When it comes to God’s
Heavenly Apprentice, I’m never fired, and you may be the 45th President, Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lord, and HE will always will be.

That’s all I have to say.

32 for 32

Here it is, today is my birthday. On the REAL deal, I don’t want to be in my 30s looking for stability…that’s the 20s are for. I’m trying to be 30, looking 20, thinking 50, and still keeping it đź’Ż. Now that I’m 32, these are 32 lessons I’ve learned and know it’s all true.

1.) If you want something done right, you’ll have to do it yourself

2.) When things aren’t adding up in your life, start subtracting.

3.) Never fall in love with the wrong guy because they’re main ones who knows the right things to say.

4.) Love doesn’t cost a thing; it only pays to be yourself. And if you can afford love, Jesus wouldn’t have to go to Calvary.

5.) Stop Facebooking your problems and start facing your problems.

6.) What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

7.) The more you trust God, the more He amazes you.

8.) Fake friends are like 4 quarters, 20 nickels, 10 dimes, 100 pennies, and 2 half dollars: they all change for a dollar.

9.) To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.

10.) Don’t trust what you see, even salt looks like sugar.

11.) When God has a calling on your life, expect your enemies to attack you.

12.) Standing alone is better than standing with people who constantly hurt you. But God is always with you, even if in the shadows.

13.) No hater can stop God’s favor. God will give them front row seats to watch your life prosper.

14.) Be careful how you’re talking to yourself because you’re listening.

15.) People who keep it real don’t care about being liked, they care about being respected.

16.) God didn’t bring you through the storm just to drop in a mud puddle.

17.) God is so big, He can cover the whole world with His love, and so small He can curl up inside your heart.

18.) You can’t erase the past; no need to be frozen let it go. You can’t change yesterday; you must accept the lessons learned.

19.) Before you God, doubt your own doubts.

20.) You may not feel victorious. It may not look like you’re blessed, but by faith, you’ve got to fake it until you make it.

21.) You’ve got to be mindful for how you treat people.

22.) Before you point the finger at somebody, make sure your hands are clean.

23.) If you want to feel rich, just count all the gifts you have which money can’t buy.

24.) The only people who are mad at you for speaking the truth are the main ones living a lie. Never stop speaking the truth.

25.) You reap what you sow. If you’re sowing bad seeds, it’s coming back to you.

26.) God is the best listener; you don’t need to shout or cry out loud because He hears you even the very silent prayer of a sincere heart.

27.) Humble yourself in the sight of the LORD, and He will lift you up.

28.) With a tiara and a little confidence, we could change our world.

29.) Don’t let life’s tough times harden you like a rock. Let them polish you like a diamond.

30.) Be your true self, people will judge you anyway, so they might as well judge the real you.

31.) Not everyone you like is going to love you back, that’s why you need to love yourself before you love anyone else.

32.) If God doesn’t give you what you want, then it isn’t what you need. But if God is all you have, then have all you need.

How Did I Get Over My Crushes?

When I was in high school, I called myself having a serious crush on a guy. I was young, naïve, and immature because I didn’t know anything about love just like I didn’t know anything about him. The only thing I know is that he’s charming and he was in the 12th grade. I never thought I’d be going crazy in love with this guy knowing that he’s already taken. I admit it, I did call myself giving him gifts and stuff like that, and what did I get from him? Nothing. Not a gift, not a date, nada…all I got were pictures…just pictures.

But when it comes to the last straw, that’s my cue of waking up. One day I was on my way to class. I was told from his class mates that he said that if I want to be his girlfriend, I need to pull my grades up. I was in total shock and I wasn’t expecting it. But here’s the funny part. On the day when I was receiving my progress report card, it turns out that I have better grades. The minute when his classmates saw what my progress report card was, the guy was embarrassed. His grades didn’t look too good at all and the only thing he’d say is that my grades looks better than his. I asked myself, “How is this fool giving me an ultimatum about pulling my grades up when his grades look like garbage?” I even told myself, “It looks like I didn’t have to pull my grades up to be his girlfriend after all, and his classmates didn’t have to tell me what he had said when knowing he could’ve been man enough to tell me himself.” To make matters worse, the guy had the gall to call me Satan’s Child. Right away, I realized that I’m better than that. I’m MORE than that. And that lets me know that I shouldn’t feed the need I have for this guy because he’s not worth my time nor my attention. And that’s when I decided to cut him loose. I didn’t want to admit it, but I knew that I was falling in love with the wrong guy.

I’ve spend days and months feeling helpless and I ended up blaming myself. I thought, “If I haven’t been so much in love with this dirt bag, I wouldn’t be in this mess. My mother already warned me to not let that boy make a fool out of me, and now look what happened.” It’s true, I should’ve known better. I’ve been spending way too much time loving this dirt bag than focusing on my education. As the years went by, I haven’t been in contact with him since my 20th birthday as well as facebooking.

At age 26, I ended up having a crush on another guy. I’ve been knowing this one since high school. He was a 9th grader and I was a 12th grader. We have been facebooking each other and texting each time to time and in 2012, that’s when I broke the news to him. I told him that I have a crush on him and I didn’t want to come between him, his family, and his career. And lo, and behold, he didn’t have any genuine interest in me just by telling me that he already knew I had feelings for him and that he only sees me as a friend. I was disappointed and I took things way too far just by being too friendly to him. Once again, I was naïve that my mother warned me not to let another guy make a fool out of me. But this time, he was NOT showing her or me any interest. As foolish as I was, I was always bragging about him and gave him a card for Valentine’s Day. But what did he give me in return? Nothing! Not even a thing.

Years later, I have discovered his true colors when he started to change. That’s when I found out that he was in a long-distance relationship with a girl who lives far away. I was upset and I never thought that I’d be going down this dirty path all over again. A few years ago, his new girlfriend and I bonded well on social media but things became very complicated for me to bare. When she started flaunting my 2nd ex-crush all over the Internet, I decided to distance myself and start getting my focus back on what I should be focusing on, and that’s on God. I felt like I’m bittersweet but I realize that I’m still blessed because it was God’s plan to turn my heartbreak into a blessing. During that time, I have no communication with the guy ever again. No birthday text, no holiday text, nothing. And that’s my cue for moving on.

Things were going smooth until I ended up having another crush on another guy for the last time. This time, it was only a test. When I was 29, I secretly had a crush on a guy that is my former high school bandmate. I’ve been liking, sharing, and commenting almost everything on facebook but I was being cautious because I remembered what happened when I had hard crushes to two different guys and I didn’t want to be naïve and looking foolish any more than I already have. This guy never calls or text me but he has been facebooking me very seldom. When I found out that he’s in a relationship with someone else, I had no choice but to respectfully cut him loose. That’s when I realize that he’s the wrong guy.

Now that I’m 30, I was going strong—crush-free! There were times when I look back over my life and saw how far I have come. As of now, I don’t have any crushes on any guys. I’m in the process of moving on in grace and focusing on better things. I even have thoughts that I was settling less than what I deserve just by having these crazy crushes on guys that aren’t worthy of me, and I admit it, I was. But through it all, it made me realize that every heartbreak I’ve had, God turned them into blessings. Every mess I’ve made, He turned them all into messages. God is so faithful, He turned a lot of things around just for my own good.

Now that I shared my true story about my experience of having crushes, I am going to lay down the basic steps along with Bible scriptures on getting over these crushes to move on without settling for less.

STEP 1: SHINE ON
If you happened to notice that your light is looking dim, don’t let it get you down. Encourage yourself to be the light God created you to be. Even if you feel under pressure, God will help you shine like a diamond. Read Psalm 18:28 and Matthew 5:14

STEP 2: BE CAUTIOUS WHO YOU LOVE
The next time you have a crush on another guy, you’ve got to be careful. Be very careful! You must always be very cautious for falling in love with the wrong guys simply because they’re the main ones who knows the right things to say. Regardless of how fine he is, how many scriptures he can quote, how gorgeous his eyes are, how handsome he dresses, or how angelic he sings, beware of the devil in disguise. Remember, the devil was an angel too! Read 2 Corinthians 6:14-15 and Proverbs 13:20

STEP 3: KNOW THAT MAN IS NOT GOD
If you find yourself being obsessed with a guy that you have a crush on, you’re way out of control! You are idolizing this guy because when you lose control of yourself and give life to every feeling, you leave yourself defenseless. That’s exactly how your heart gets broken. A guy is NOT God and do NOT make a guy your god. For real, God does NOT tolerate rivals! Read Exodus 20:3-6 and Proverbs 25:28

STEP 4: HAVE A LITTLE ONE-ON-ONE WITH GOD
Once you realize what all you have done to prove your love to your crush and he doesn’t show you love in return because he’s in love with another girl, that’s your cue for letting go. You may be hurt and heartbroken but guess what. God can turn your heartbreak into a blessing, that’s His way of saving you from the wrong one! Cutting your crush loose can be very difficult, but if you really want to break free, have a little talk with God in secret. If you have any confessions, confess your sins and He will forgive you. Even if you felt like you are weak, ask God to strengthen you! No matter what, God is NEVER unfaithful, He is always, and will always be faithful so go to Him in prayer. Read Philippians 4:6, Colossians 4:2, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, and Matthew 6:7-8

STEP 5: NEVER GIVE ANY GUY ANY GIFTS IF YOU ARE NOT IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM
The best way to give a gift is just be your own gift. Buy a special gift for yourself, not for a guy that you’re not in a relationship with. If you’re married to him, that’ll be different. But giving a gift to a guy you have crush on, it’s just a cheap shot, and it would be stinky if he doesn’t give you any gifts. Regardless, if it’s his birthday, Valentine’s Day, or Christmas, the only gift that you can give a guy is patience & space. You should never try to control how he is yet evolving. You simply evolve too.
If he’s not interested in you at all, avoid giving him any gifts. On the real deal, there are some things you have to birth yourself because no guy can do it for you. Although a guy can see your worth, he can’t create it, you’re most definitely not dependent on him for it! It is God who has created in you the gifts worth valuing, and you are the one who develops those gifts. Read Galatians 4:19-20 and Philippians 1:6

STEP 6: AVOIDING THINGS THAT REMINDED YOU OF YOUR CRUSH
If you find yourself thinking about your crush, ask God to take charge of your thoughts. If you think that’s not enough, quote a few scriptures. While you’re at it, start by avoiding certain places that your crush be going to, avoid certain things that he does, and avoid him on any social network. Believe me, you do NOT want to tempt yourself. It’s not complicated if you keep on praying and trusting in God’s plan. For real, you can’t keep being wrapped up, tied up, tangled up to your ex-crush that’s gone on with his life. He doesn’t want you, you don’t want him. So there! Read 1 Corinthians 10:13

STEP 7: AVOID BRAGGING AND BOASTING
Even though it’s okay for you to have a crush on someone, bragging all the time about your crush can lead you to lose complete focus on certain things you should be focusing on is NOT okay. The truth of the matter is, bragging and boasting about your love interest can seriously make you lose your mind. If your crush has NOT done anything for you to prove his love for you in return and you’re bragging about him, then you’d be very foolish! He is not a prince among men so don’t brag and boast about him. If you want to brag about something, start bragging about what all God has done for you instead of your crush! Read Proverbs 27:2, Proverbs 25:14, Jeremiah 9:23, Matthew 6:1 and Jude 1:16

STEP 8: VALUE YOUR OWN VIRTUE
You must always know how valuable your own virtue is by how you’re respecting yourself. If you’re caught up in a competition with other girls, dressing provocative, and wishing your crush would notice you, remind yourself that you’re worth MORE than temporary attention from your crush who don’t plan to respect you. You don’t have to dress to impress just to get your crush’s attention especially when he’s NOT showing any genuine interest in you. Read 1 Corinthians 6:13 and Psalm 51:10

STEP 9: PUT IT IN WRITING
The better way to regroup yourself is to write about it. I’m not talking about writing all your secrets in your diary. I’m talking about writing out your blessings and prayers in your prayer notebook. That’s right, a prayer notebook! You don’t have to go overboard of getting a notebook. Just get yourself a nice little notebook that you like or you can decorate it and just start writing. Writing in your prayer notebook is like you’re having a conversation with God in secret instead of being in public. But if your crush or crushes starts popping up in your mind while you’re in the process of moving on, immediately write down some scriptures and prayers in your prayer notebook and you’ll be fine. Read Matthew 6:6

STEP 10: BE SATISFIED WITH WHAT YOU GOT
Forget about your crush! Trust me, there are times that you must forget about your ex-crush and start focusing on his bad qualities that turns you off completely. You really should be grateful for what you do have. You have a family that prays for you and loves you, you got real friends that got your back. What more do you want? If you got God, that’s good enough! Read Psalm 118:1-18, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, and Hebrews 12:28

STEP 11: ENJOY BEING SINGLE WITHOUT BEING LONELY
Like a preacher once said, “you can be single and not being lonely” and yes, that’s true. The biggest problem with most females is that they get desperate to have a man in their lives for various reasons such as cuddling, kissing and stuff like that. It’s like a frustrated wife wanting to bear her husband a baby just to make everything fine. A wife should know that she doesn’t try to have a baby just to make the situation better. She should get her situation straighten out first then she can think about having a baby. That goes for the single ladies. You shouldn’t try to have a man in your life to make your situation better. That’s what God’s timing is for: getting yourself together first before you think about having a man in your life. The way I see it, most females failed to learn how to be single without being lonely because they are afraid to be by themselves, like they’re so sick of being lonely. To me, that’s crazy. If you can’t learn how to be by yourself, how will you be able to handle yourself being in a relationship with someone else? Believe me, it takes a strong woman to say that she’d rather be by herself than to be in a relationship with the wrong man. And when some guy comes up to you and said, “You’re too beautiful to be single”, you tell him, “No! I’m too beautiful to be settling less than God’s highest and best!” Read 1 Corinthians 7:8 and 2 Corinthians 6:14

STEP 12: KNOW THAT YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
God doesn’t care about your race, weight, height, hair color, gender your past decisions or anything of your physical appearance. He loves you! He accepts you for you. No matter what, in HIS eyes, you are beautiful. Everything that you are, it’s all because of HIM, and Him alone! You do not need validation from a man to know how worthy and beautiful you are. Validate yourself! Fill yourself with good positive truth. Read Psalm 139:14, 1 Peter 3:4, and 1 Samuel 16:7

STEP 13: HAVE HIGHER EXPECTATIONS FOR YOURSELF
In times like this, you’ve got to have higher expectations for yourself. A man who said they love you but you are not his girlfriend, A man who said they love you but they’re not really showing it, A man who said they love you but they’re blocking you on social media, he’s NOT worth your time or your attention. He’s not a prince among men and he’s certainly not a knight in shining armor. He’s a loser wrapped up in an aluminum foil. For real, you can do bad all by yourself simply because you have too much dignity for yourself, your morals and your state of mind to be settling less than what you deserve. Whatever you do, do not settle for less than God’s best!! Read Isaiah 55:2, Jeremiah 29:11, James 1:12,
and Hebrews 7:25

As I conclude, I pray that my experience will bless someone who are going through difficult times of getting over their crush and live a wonderful new life the way God wants His children to live.

INTRODUCING KARMA

I have a friend who has been around for decades. Everyone always say that she is a broad at times but there were times where she is sweet. My friend works three jobs: She’s a chef, a teacher, and a lawmaker. She is also very spiritual. Although her name isn’t mentioned in the Good Book, I dare not to compare her to the Heavenly Father because He has the power use anyone and anything in any way.

Let me explain why my friend is a chef, a teacher, and a lawmaker.

My friend is a chef of her own restaurant. When you come in to dine, don’t expect her to give you a menu because she doesn’t have any of them. You get served with what you deserve. The only dish that she best serves cold is Revenge. Trust me, it tastes sweet like homemade ice cream.

My friend is a teacher that can teach you a lesson about what it’s being said in the Good Book. She’s the type that NEVER lose an address. Your best out is to be very careful how you sow seeds because sooner or later, you will reap who you sow. If you can’t understand that, allow me to be briefer. Let’s say that you’ve planted an apple tree in your own back yard, and then you get mad because the apples start to grow on it. That means you reap what you sow. If you don’t think that it’s NOT in the Good Book, I dare you to open it, look up Job 4:8; Proverb 26:27; 2 Corinthians 5:10;
and Galatians 6:7.

So, you see, all that leads to the reason why my is a lawmaker, and here’s her law:
When birds are alive, they eat ants. When the birds die, the ants eat the birds.
One tree makes a million matchsticks. Only one matchstick is needed to burn down a million trees. You may be powerful now, but your circumstances can change. She is powerful. Don’t hurt anyone. Be good and do good.

Also, don’t forget the Golden Rule:
Always do for other people everything you want them to do for you (Matthew 7:12).

Now that I have told you all about my friend, I know that you probably know what her name is. But for those of you who good or bad things unto others, regardless of who you are, you all will come to know her well. She may be your friend, or she may be your enemy, her name is Karma.
