Where is God?

25 Jul

I can’t see God being a tangible thing or person. I think that since “He’s everywhere” He, therefore, must be everything. The air we breathe, blades of grass, asteroids, maybe even sound. Everything is God and God is everything. With that and using slippery slope logic…we’re all God, so heaven should be rightfully ours.

Prayers, please!

19 Jul

Ok, a friend of mine needs prayers. I don’t usually do this, but please pray for her & her baby. She’s pregnant and has been in the hospital for severe nausea and vomiting. I just got a call from her mom that they can’t hear her baby’s heartbeat. Her mom is going to keep me updated on what’s going on, but I just wanted to ask you guys to keep her in your prayers, please. Thank you so much!

Meditation

18 Apr

I found a saying on which I can meditate. Just repeat this to myself whenever I feel like I need to hear it.

“I declare I will choose faith over fear! I will meditate on what is positive and what is good about my situation. I will use my energy not to worry, but to believe. Fear has no part in my life. I will not dwell on negative, discouraging thoughts. My mind is set on what God says about me. I know His plan for me is success, victory, and abundance. This is my declaration.”

Oily Prayers

9 Feb

So…I felt extremely depressed yesterday and last night. Still feeling pretty depressed today. I kinda thought about just ending it. It really wouldn’t be that hard, I mean my body is basically trying to do that for me…I would kind of just have to let it. So having those thoughts so often kinda freaked me out a little, so I tried to call some people…nothing. I got nothing. That was kind of expected because it was super late. And then randomly, one of the 3rd years from my school came back from his out of town rotation and asked if he could come over at like 3AM cuz he knows I just needed a hug. So he came to visit me and stayed until like 6:30 AM, and I think that helped because I was able to fall asleep.

Yesterday, my stomach was hurting so badly, and then later on my head started hurting a lot. My stomach hurts a little less now, but my head is still hurting. It’s a weird kind of pain that I’ve never experienced before and I can’t really explain, even though I had to try. I just feel really strange, and I have no idea how to even begin to explain that. Just outside of myself but all dizzy and like nothing is real. I have like no balance or coordination either, which is why it’s taking an eternity to write this flippin’ post! I need a nap. My counts were too low to get the full doses of chemo meds today, and I got neulasta, which means my everything will be hurting for a while.

This girl really really wants her pastor to pray for me in person…which is fine and all, and I really appreciate it…but like with oil and stuff. Not trying to offend anyone here, but why do I have to get all oily to get prayed for? I honestly don’t think God needs oil to do stuff, but if that’s how her pastor wants to do it, I’m down for whatever. Can’t hurt, right? I mean if God will answer prayers regardless, then the oil is just extra, and I’m not so into all the extra when it comes to prayer and all that. I feel like it can distract from the point of the whole thing, but I mean…I’m sure the man knows what he’s doing. So uh…I’ll be getting oily with her pastor tonight. Wish me luck.

Habari Gani? Imani!

1 Jan

Imani means faith!

Light the previous candles and in same way and order as the previous nights, then light the remaining green candle. The last candle! This is the last night, guys! It’s also New Year’s. 🙂

Discuss faith and what this personally means to you (whatever religion you practice or if you don’t practice a religion…this is personal to you). After that call out “Harambee!” seven times. Then, guess what you do? You give zawadi (gifts) to immediate family members to encourage growth, self-determination, achievement, and success, and promote or reward accomplishments and commitments kept. Haha, gotcha!! Gifts are usually handmade (self-determination, purpose, and creativity, remember?) When you accept the gift, you’re implying that you’re willing to follow through with the principles taught during Kwanzaa. And uh…then you eat! ^_^ You knew it was coming.

This has been a Kwanzaa celebration with me, thanks for joining, and I hope to see you next year :).
