Young-looking and Young at Heart

young black womanThe lady who I am staying with temporarily, is 70 years old. Yesterday, she and I were talking and she was asking me how old I was. I think I told her once, but clearly she had forgotten. Well like most women the subject of age is not one we readily want to talk about. So she asked me if I was in my 30’s or late 20’s. Well of course I was flattered beyond measure. She finally settled on 35. She then said, well your skin is so smooth and you are so young-looking. Well, you know I was not going to tell her how old I was after that. So I finally told her I was over 40.

Although my friend is 70, she is still very active and doesn’t stop unless she has to. She is still driving and getting around and is involved in so much. It’s a blessing to see active seniors because that is definitely how I want to be. Getting older doesn’t mean you have to be old and feeble.

Whether you are young-looking or just young at heart, Just enjoy the life God gave you for as long as you can!

Ruth 4:15a

New International Version (NIV)

15 He will renew your life and sustain you in your old age.


Keep-Calm-Stay-Put (1)When God shows you His plan for your life, you have to resolve to WAIT ON GOD! These past few days have been difficult, but in the midst of it all, I am learning that you have to hear what God is saying and follow what God is telling you to do, no matter what people are telling you to do.

Yesterday, I moved  from my sister’s apartment and I am temporarily staying with a friend. When I lost my house, God spoke to me and told me Florida would be the place where I would see my prophecies come to pass. So that would mean staying in Florida. And that is what I have to do. I have two close friends who have extended their homes to me, but neither one of them live in Florida. Recently, I was considering going back to New York (my hometown) but of course, I have to obey God. Right now it’s a little uncomfortable because everyone needs their own space, but God has shown me a few others things, so right now the goal is to stay in the sunshine state.

When God shows us something we must resolve in our heart that we are going to obey. Since I’ve gotten clarity, that is what I plan to do. So now the next step is to obtain what God showed me I would obtain here. I can’t go into the details, but I believe God.

There is also another area I have come into resolve about and that is waiting for my mate. I have made up my mind, that I am going to wait on the person God says is right for me, even if he is not right for me right now. We are all diamonds in the rough in some areas of our lives. Diamonds don’t just become diamonds. There is a process which includes pressure. So I will wait on who God has said He has for me and work on myself. And as this character Ms. Ora says, “wait for him to show up at my doorstep”, because I have no intention of going anywhere until he comes!

Psalm 27:14

New International Version (NIV)

14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
