#FBF 21st Birthday

Happy Friday everyone! Today I wanted to share a throwback from my 21st birthday back in February. I chose to celebrate the big "2-1" alcohol free. Some people might find it strange but as I get closer to God the desire isn't there. My only regret is not hitting up all those food spots to get free birthday perks. It was a great day nevertheless spent with family, pampering, and yummy food of course! I always find myself at the Cheesecake Factory for my birthday. Definitely try the red velvet cheesecake (so good!). Also, shout out to my dad for taking my birthday photos early that morning (well early for us). :)

Spread the Love
Philippians 2:1-8 NLT

 1.Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2. Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. 3. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. 5. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7. Instead, he gave up his divine; privileges he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being.When he appeared in human form, 8. he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

A lot of times we can be so focused on our goals that we forget about others. Take time out to engage with others and encourage them to reach their goals as well as your own. It's always a blessing to be able to help others. God wants us to remain humble and respectful to others. Our success is because of Him giving us the abilities; it's not by our own doing. Instead of bragging, let's build each other up. The life of Jesus is the example of selflessness and obedience to God that we should follow.

Look Who's Back

  Hi there remember me? It's been such a long time since I last posted. Just to update you guys, I've been busy finishing up my junior year, campus promoting for PINK by Victoria Secret, and I got a summer job. My goal is to save up to study abroad before I graduate. Traveling abroad is something I would love to do but just haven't had the opportunity until now. My next goal is to post more frequently on my blog because I want it to encourage someone else. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I pray it inspires you!

Romans 12:1-2 NLT  

1."And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."

God isn't expecting us to be perfect people and He knows we won't get it right all the time. That's why we are supposed to continue are walk with Him so that He can show us the right way to live. He's asking that we give our whole selves completely to Him. We may live in the world but we don't have to be like it. Set your sights on things eternal. If we're going to church "religiously" but still living the same lives before we found Christ, then we haven't really been transformed. We need to have a made up mind to follow God and not the world. When we allow God to guide us, our hearts will change and He will reveal His perfect plan for us.

Stay Chic!
