God’s Timing

Hey,

c50ce5bd99b27a7a1f19b5262bc6c40fI came across an old Instagram post from Heather Lindsey just yesterday while skimming through my note3 picture feed. The picture to the left was from last year and I honestly didn’t thing it would pertain to any part of my life but, as a child of God… yes! What I mean to say is, I don’t have randoms(boyfriends or lovers on the side). Never dated actually. Never kissed a boy. Never held hands with a bow either (male family members don’t count).

I guess you can say I was never really interested and that isn’t a bad thing. Well the days where I was a high schooler is now gone and so are my “supposed” college days. I’m 23 years old and I don’t feel like my biological clock is ticking, but I do feel like everyone who was in my birth-year; those I went to school with, I feel like there life is going somewhere and I’m stuck right where I’ve always been and that’s by myself, by little ole me.

I’m not bothered by my “single-ness”. I have never been. I think most people who can relate to me agree. It’s not the single, the plus one(not), that is the problem. It’s the perspective of seeing someone else life move on and your stuck.

Let me repeat that: It’s perspective.
(A particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.)

The fact that I am looking through the looking glass that is so clouded {envy, jealousy} I can’t see the truth, but I see the mirage. I see what the devil wants me to see. I see the happiness of others but not their struggle to get there. I see their green grass, but not the amount of time and hard earned tending to  that green grass. We see people happy, and yet don’t know why or how, yet we want what they have.

A few days ago, I believe this past Monday, I was going through a few I was reading up on RecessionistaCornelious Lindseyand some others as I got through drifting through a few random IG’s. I came across a lot of men who followed God with all their heart and focused on him with a perspective that couldn’t be shaken from years of learning and learning on God.

God showed me and told me as plain as day: There are plenty of them {men of God} out there who live for me, if I wanted you to be taken, I would have let you be seen.

God’s will for my life has to be within my perspective- my point of view. If I don’t live for God, I won’t be happy. If I don’t give up the worldly desire, I won’t be happy. I won’t be spiritually fulfilled, spiritually happy, spiritually satisfied. If God isn’t your perspective- your point of view, then forget about happiness.

No, happiness won’t be the first thing you experience on your walk with Christ. Freedom will be. Then aching, then pain, then rest, then more refining, then more rest, then battling, then breaks in war, then more war, then one day it would be settled. Everything will be fine, dandy even. Satan and his demonic army will be put to rest and you to eternal freedom and happiness.

So, I don’t look at people the same. I look at them how God would want me to see them. I am hidden by God. No man can come for me unless God wants them too and I am totally fine with that. That just leaves God and Me for a while, a good while, and that’s just what I need to keep my perspective right. Plus, I’m a pretty spoiled princess, I’ve been with God for far too long, that man who is meant for me has to be more than average, but a prince in the making.

WooHoo, Three Years Strong!

Dear Readers,

I love you all. I am very thankful for your patronage and your willingness to stick through it with me. It’s been three years since my first post out of the wood works of hopping along and you have graced me with more wonderful readers who read for a reason.

Once again the glory goes to God and His ever strong pursuit of myself and His children around the world. Today I opened an Etsy store to do one thing that makes me happy… Selling my creations. I am excited about this journey and will keep at it as I have with my Blog. I love the freedom I feel when I’m on here and I love sharing about my journey with  God and finding new hobbies everyday.

Thanks WordPress for a spot I can call “a little corner for myself”.

Kampai!

B’Sweet~Stay Sweet,

The sheep who listens for the Shepherd

Good Morning,

It’s been a whole month since I last wrote a blog post. The reason is: No Internet!
You guys, NO INTERNET! Means I can’t even post or take pictures to edit. But thank God it’s back on. Now a few things have happened.

  1. Revival has started an amazing thing in me.
  2. I got a job at a Candy store.
  3. I finally bought a Silhouette Portrait
  4. Sk Design Labs has started marketing and pre-producing.
  5. More podcasts are being developed.
  6. God has complete overhauled my perspective.
  7. Summer is almost over.
  8. I make sure to get my butt to Friday night prayer.

Off the top of my head, for one short month, there has been a lot that has happened. I thank God for His mercy and grace because He’s been the greatest father there ever is and will be.

Now, I’m excited to say August 29th is when I will be re-openeing  my Etsy for Sweet Kirithra Planner stickers. I am so stocked. I’ve been creating like crazy and I am trying to get enough supplies in too.

So far, so good. God doesn’t stop blessing even when we choose to ignore Him, so how much more will we be able to see Him and the blessings He gives us If we choose to make Him first priority? A little nugget for thought.

No matter what you’ve went through, be it tragic, anxiety, happiness, contentment/ or lack thereof, God is always there and there always is a comment, opinion, expression. You just have to get it out positively. Believe you are not in it alone and always fighting for what God gave you; don’t let Satan steal it from your hands.

I’d love to talk with you, how has your month been so far?

Kinky Twist & The Big Chop

Hello Everyone,

Disney World Trip~Day 1 (Animal Kingdom)

Over early summer I had decided to get kinky twist installed. I had it done for my Disney World trip that was during the third week of June. I kept them in for about month. Right after I big chopped you guys!

Disney Trip (Animal Kingdom)-Day 1

It is liberating and yet not. The plan was to cut my hair after a year of transitioning, but  noticed the back was growing faster than the front. So in order to save the awkward length I decided I should big chop and trim up my hair evenly and let it grow out as such.

I’ve always cut my hair so it didn’t hurt to chop my hair off, but as soon as I did my hair shrank up. The stretched hair I had had finally reverted to it’s nice from of a Teeny Weeny Afro(TWA). I will admit that I am not happy with it’s length but I am more pleased that my hair will be growing healthy and even.

Since there is nothing I can do about it, I just let my sorrow roll off my shoulders and focus on how happy it is to be fully natural.

Left: Big Chop Right: Big Chopping July 1st, 2015

 

P.S: If you somehow didn’t realize, earlier today, I closed by etsy shop for good. I will be selling on my blog using another method than etsy.

B’Sweet~Stay Sweet,

Betting On Hope By Debra Clopton

BettingOn Hope

Published by Thomas Nelson

A story about intertwined people and what they a missing out on be a use of personal matters. A man who lives in a busy body town where not one citizen is nosey but all of them and a woman who is looking for a special place to call home while on a business trip.

♡⊙♡

I always love a good story about country men and God tied up all together but I wasn’t able to get into this one. I was gung-ho ready to read it when I got it and wasn’t able to dip by head into it. Finally though I was able to and it wasn’tain’t something I, myself, was able to stick too. But I am willing to give this book a second chance. So that’sthat’s what this new week is all about. Giving this book a second chance. I am going to bury my head deeply into this book I just might get lost in it.

And I Will…

Hey You,

This was supposed to be on Monday, but I completely forgot about blogging.So do forgive me, please. I was more focused on relaxing and preparing my brain for school the next day, by the way I did a good job on my ‘What Is Ugly?’ project for Interior Design. I should have taken a picture to show on my blog but that though didn’t cross my mind.

Oh Well, onto the next thing.

So I have decided to go with Havana/Marley Twists. Yay! *And the crowd goes wild*

Based solely on gut feelings and opportunity, twists’ have become the victor. Speaking of victor… Hunger Games. Best. Movie. Of. 2014. At least in my opinion. Can’t wait to see the second part of Mocking Jay.

So what movie was your hit wonder for 2014?

B’Sweet~Stay Sweet,

Annie ♥
