Jesus Loves You!

We are all sinners, every single one of us. Some people may forget that they sin too when they judge others for their sins; nevertheless, we are all sinners. Many haven’t pursued a relationship with Jesus because they think they have to be sinless, which is impossible, my friend. Maybe the reason is that they believe they have to be perfect or have their life together before seeking Jesus. Thinking, after I complete this in my life, then maybe Jesus will accept me.

Well, I’m here to tell you that Jesus wants you to seek him and come to him right now! Just like you are. He doesn’t want you to change anything before you seek Him. He loves you just the way you are!

Jesus himself says in Matthew chapter 11 verse 28 (NIV), “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” And He also says, in Matthew chapter 7 verse 7 (NIV), “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened.

Now, after you start gaining a relationship with Him, getting to know Him and His word, you’ll change. You’ll want to change. Things that you used to do; you might not want to do anymore. Things you used to pursue or thought you needed; you realize you don’t really care for that anymore. The first is starts with repentance. Jesus tells us, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32 NIV). Repentance is being remorseful and asking forgiveness for our past sins. If you genuinely ask for forgiveness, Jesus will forgive you.

Then, you’ll accept Jesus as your Lord and savior. Romans 10:9-10, (NIV), “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” That’s it!!! There is no complicated formula, no hurdles, or obstacles you need to go through to be saved.

Next, you have to renew your mind. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:2 NIV). As a follower of Christ, you are called to be different, not follow the norms of this world, because you are in this world, but you are not of this world. You are a child of God!

And lastly, you should continue a relationship with Him. This is done by continually reading The Bible, praying, and worshiping. You’ll be amazed at the transformation He does in your life. How much peace you’ll have in your heart and joy in your soul.

Jesus loves you, no matter what! That’s how great his love is for you. And I wanted to remind you that you don’t have to have everything together before seeking Him. Even if you accepted Him as your savior years ago and you got off track, come back to Him today. He will accept you because He loves you! And I love you also, friend!

With Love,

My Struggle During This Pregnancy

They say that no two pregnancies are the same, and boy, they were not kidding. I’ve struggled a lot, physically and mentally, with this pregnancy compared to when I was pregnant with my daughter. Let me say pregnancy is hard! Shout out to all the mamas with multiple kids; my hat goes off to you. I know that not everyone experiences pregnancy the same but still, I salute all the moms.

First Trimester

With my daughter’s pregnancy, I went through a lot, but it was all outside factors; nothing, health wise came up during the pregnancy. Thanks, God. And you can read all about it, here. But this pregnancy was completely different, (which gave me the first hint that it was a boy). First, this pregnancy was planned, so I knew I was pregnant before symptoms started. Symptoms started around week six, morning sickness, but it would last all day, throwing up (I even ended up in the hospital once from throwing up so much), I felt weak, and when I would eat, my stomach would hurt shortly after. I slept a lot because I was miserable all the time.

I couldn’t eat salmon anymore, and certain smells bothered me. I cried multiple times because of how miserable I felt, and I also felt like I was slipping into depression. I was not motivated to do anything, all I wanted to do was sleep, but I think it was because of how sick I was. I felt like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. Whatever symptom the baby app would tell me I was going to experience that week, I would. I was counting down the days for the second trimester, which was when morning sickness subside.

I also felt guilt. Guilt because I couldn’t cook, certain smells were a bother, I couldn’t clean, I felt like a lousy mom because my daughter also needed me. My husband picked up a lot of my slack during these months. The guilt was coming from myself my husband never made me feel bad; he just kept reminding me that this was all temporary.

Second Trimester

Fast forward to the second trimester. I am no longer as sick, and I say as sick because I’ll still get nauseous from time to time. But my struggle with this trimester was seeing my body change so much and feel like I didn’t recognize myself. I had already gained weight last year during quarantine, but now being pregnant, of course, I’m going to continue to gain. I look in the mirror and see that my thighs are enormous, my arms are massive, I feel like my face is huge, especially when I smile. I have stretch marks EVERYWHERE, oh and I almost forgot, my boobs are disgusting. I know, I know, my body is creating a miracle, but this is how I feel.

Along with all this, I’ve had a UTI, which showed no symptoms, so it caught me off guard when my OB sent antibiotics, I have low iron, so I must take supplements every day, and I was diagnoses with gestational diabetes. This puts me in the high-risk pregnancy category. You can see the video on how I found out about the diagnosis on my YouTube channel.

Wrapping Up

I am VERY grateful to be carrying my rainbow baby, do not get me wrong, but pregnancy is no walk in the park. Creating a human is hard, and this is a way for me to express my struggles. I thank God every day for my baby, and I continue to pray for a healthy baby, delivery, and speedy recovery (feel free to join me in prayer). Hearing other women’s pregnancy stories lets me know I’m not alone in this struggle and adjusting to all the changes we endure during this time is challenging. I want to end this by saying women are amazing!! 🙂

With Love,
