RELATIONSHIPS-PART ONE [GOD]



HELLO Y’ALL
WELCOME EVERYBODY!
SO THIS WEEK I DECIDED TO BLOG EVERY DAY (I HOPE HAHAHAHA) OTHER THAN THE WEEKEND BECAUSE HONESTLY IT’S THE WEEKEND WOOO HA. THERE IS A RANGE OF RELATIONSHIPS BUT I’D LIKE TO START WITH MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD FIRST. GOD IS FIRST TO ME AND HONESTLY WITHOUT GOD I WOULDN’T HAVE ANY OTHER RELATIONSHIP. 
THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE AS I’D LIKE TO SAY ON EVERY POST AND I DO THIS BECAUSE YOU MIGHT BE NEW TO MY BLOG AND DON’T WANT YOU TO THINK I KNOW IT ALL BECAUSE I DON’T. I DON’T WANT TO BE PRAISED LIKE A GOD BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND I DON’T WANT TO BE AN IDOL AND BE PUT ON A PEDESTAL BECAUSE IM ONLY HUMAN AND I SOMETIMES DO LOSE MY BALANCE AND MAKE MISTAKES. I WANT TO BE AN INSPIRATION. 
IF YOU DO WANT TO PRAISE, YOU CAN PRAISE GOD 
& CHRIST.
 I LOVE ME BUT NOT IN A SELFISH WAY THAT I THINK IM BETTER THAN EVERYBODY BECAUSE IM NOT THAT KIND OF PERSON TO BRING ANYONE DOWN OR TO NOT THINK WELL OF MYSELF BECAUSE IT TOOK ME YEARS TO TRULY LOVE MYSELF. I DO WANT THE BEST FOR MYSELF BECAUSE LIFE IS SHORT. 
I LOVE TOO MUCH! GOD GAVE ME SUCH A BIG HEART. I WANT TO SHARE THIS LOVE, NOT GIVE ALL OF ME TO THE WORLD BECAUSE GOD HAS SHOWN ME TO RESPECT MYSELF AND NOT LOSE MYSELF. I’M NOT FOR THE WORLD BUT A PART OF IT, TO HELP OTHERS. I’M NOT TRYING TO RUB IT IN YOUR FACE OR PUSH IT DOWN YOUR THROAT ABOUT GOD. THIS IS WHAT I BELIEVE IN AND I JUST WANT TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE & LOVE. I DON’T BELIEVE SOMEONE SHOULD GET IN YOUR FACE, PRESSURING YOU OR DEBATING YOU TO BELIEVE. YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT TO. I JUST LOOK AT LIFE AND THINK (NOT IN A JUDGING WAY CALM DOWN) HOW CAN ONE NOT BELIEVE IN GOD AND ALL THE THINGS HE HAS CREATED AND STILL CREATES… THE STARS, CHOCOLATE, ENERGY AND THAT EVEN AFTER MY MISTAKES GOD STILL LOVES ME AND MUCH MORE… MANY THINGS AMAZES ME HAHAHA I’M LIKE BUBBLES AND NEMO FROM FINDING NEMO [DON’T JUDGE HAHAHA] AMAZED BY THE SIMPLIST AND COMPLEX THINGS. GOD REMINDS ME EVERYONE HAS HIS OR HER TIMING AND REASONS. HONESTLY, I FEEL AT PEACE KNOWING THAT. SO I’M NOT HERE TRYING TO PRESSURE YOU I KNOW HOW THAT FEELS AND IT SUCKS. GOD LOVES YOU TOO!

YOU’RE HERE TO BE LIGHT, BRINGING OUT THE GOD-COLORS IN THE WORLD. GOD IS NOT A SECRET TO BE KEPT….IF I MAKE YOU LIGHT-BEARERS….IM PUTTING YOU ON A LIGHT STAND NOW THAT I’VE PUT YOU THERE…. SHINE!
MATTHEW 5:14-15



  IVE BEEN BUILDING MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND WITH THAT MYSELF AS WELL. I’VE ALWAYS BELIEVED IN GOD AND TODAY I BELIEVE EVEN MORE. I WAS RAISED CATHOLIC AND I WAS JUDGED A LOT. IT MADE ME THINK ABOUT WHY PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH JUDGE ME LIKE I HAD TO NEVER MAKE MISTAKES AND THEN PUT ME DOWN. HONESTLY, I BECAME SO HARD ON MYSELF AND WORRY WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT. I DIDN’T THINK GOD DIDN’T EXIST  OR I WASN’T MAD AT GOD, BUT DIDN’T WANT TO BE A PART OF A RELIGION THAT MADE ME FEEL WORTHLESS. HONESTLY, I GOT CLOSER TO GOD. NOW I DON’T LET ANYONE/ANYTHING PUT ME DOWN. I DO NOT HATE ON RELIGION BECAUSE THAT’S SUCH A STRONG WORD AND HONESTLY I’M ALL ABOUT LOVE BUT IT MADE ME QUESTION ABOUT RELIGION. THIS DOESN’T JUST HAPPEN IN THE CATHOLIC COMMUNITY, I’VE SEEN IT HAPPEN EVERYWHERE.  
SO I WENT ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY, I DIDN’T TRAVEL THE WORLD TO “FIND MYSELF” (WHICH I WOULD HAVE LOVED BECAUSE I LOVE TO TRAVEL) BUT I BELIEVE WE CREATE OURSELVES AND YES WE DO HAVE PURPOSE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU. SOME GREATER THAN OTHERS BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOUR NOT GREAT. 
I STARTED STUDYING THE BIBLE. WHEN I READ CERTAIN VERSES THINGS MADE MORE SENSE. BOOKS ARE KNOWLEDGE. THEN I READ OTHER BOOKS. I LISTENED TO MY THOUGHTS AND CONTROLLED SOME OF MY FEELINGS. 
I’M A VERY VISION PERSON SO BEFORE I HAD TO SEE TO BELIEVE BUT NOW I DON’T----- I FEEL IT AND THAT’S ALL THE PROOF I NEED. GOD HAS SHOWN ME MIRACLES AND EVERY NEW DAY BEING A MIRACLE ITSELF. IT’S JUST AMAZING! GOD IS THE CREATOR OF EVERYTHING WHY SHOULD I NOT TALK ABOUT HOW TRULY WONDERFUL GOD IS!  SERIOUSLY AMAZING Y’ALL AND IM NOT ASHAMED TO SAY I LOVE GOD! I LOVE JESUS! WELL, YOUR PROBABLY WONDERING ARE YOU CHRISTIAN WELL IM NOT BAPTISED BUT I AM A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST. HE DIED FOR ME WELL ALL OF US SO THAT WE CAN LIVE LIFE MORE. 
YEARS AGO SOMEONE I FORGOT WHO HAHAHA SAID WELL HE DIED FOR US ITS OK TO SIN, WE WILL BE FORGIVEN AND HONESTLY THAT MADE ME SAY LIKE JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD. YES WE ALL SIN BUT YOU DON’T NEED RELIGION TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT OR WRONG. IT’S OK IF YOU DON’T KNOW, TO GO TO GOD AND ASK IF IT IS A GOOD OR BAD THING. GOD CREATED US WITH A HEART TO FEEL, A SOUL TO HONOR AND A BRAIN TO THINK THINGS THROUGH AND A VOICE OR AGAIN THOUGHT TO SPEAK. WE ARE HUMAN WE DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING. IT’S NATURAL TO BE CURIOUS, HEY I ‘M CURIOUS TOO BUT FROM MY EXPERIENCE YOU LEARN THINGS YOU NEED TO IN A GOOD TIMELY MANNER. GOD’S TIMING IS PERFECT. I DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING AND DON’T EVER WANT TO COME TO MAKING PEOPLE THINK I KNOW EVERYTHING BECAUSE I DON’T. THE BEST RELATIONSHIP I HOLD DEAR TOO IS WITH GOD BECAUSE HE’S TAKEN CARE OF ME, PROTECTED ME, GUIDED ME, UNDERSTOOD ME, TEACHES ME, AND MUCH MORE BUT MOSTLY LOVES ME TIME IN AND TIME OUT. GOD EMPOWERS ME. IM SPEAKING FROM MY EXPERIENCES I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT GOD ISNT TRYING TO HARM YOU OR MAKE YOUR LIFE HARDER. YES THERE ARE TESTS AND SUCH BUT LIFE IS LIKE THAT: WE CAN’T CHANGE LIFE BUT GOD DOESN’T PUT US THROUGH THINGS WE CANT PASS. AMAZINGLY GOD ALREADY KNOWS YOU CAN GET THROUGH THE STORM AND BELIEVES IN YOU. NOW BELIEVE IN YOU! 
TRUST ME GOD HAS PUT ME THROUGH A LOT OF TESTS EVEN ONES I WASN’T PREPARED FOR BUT I’M HERE TODAY STRONGER THAN EVER AND WITH MORE LOVE THAN EVER.
  YOUR PROBABLY THINKING WELL IF GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH WHY TEST YOU AND HONESTLY I SAY TO LEARN, GROW AND HELP OTHERS AND LIVE LIFE MORE. IF GOD WANTS TO USE ME SO I CAN HELP OTHERS SO BE IT. I WOULDN’T BE THE PERSON I AM TODAY. I CANT EXPRESS IN WORDS HOW MUCH I LOVE GOD AND HOW MUCH HE HAS DONE FOR ME. YOU HAVE A CHOICE AND YOU WILL MAKE MISTAKES AND THAT’S OK. GOD IS EVERYWHERE. GOD WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR YOU, YOU MIGHT NOT SEE HIM BUT HE IS WITHIN US ALL OF US AND KNOW YOUR HUMAN YOU WILL AGAIN MAKE MISTAKES, TRY NOT TO FIGURE THINGS OUT BUT JUST LIVE LIFE IN THE MOMENT AND BE PREPARED AND EXCITED TO LEARN. DON’T TRY TO FIGURE EVERYTHING OUT BECAUSE YOU WILL FAIL, FEEL EXHAUSTED AND DISAPPOINTED. LET GO AND LET GOD GUIDE YOU. GO AT YOUR OWN PACE. DON’T FEEL PRESSURED TO DO MORE BECAUSE OF OTHERS. DO WHAT YOU WANT. BE YOU AND BE HAPPY AND SPREAD LOVE, THAT MAKES GOD HAPPY.  I VALUE THE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD BECAUSE WITHOUT GOD I WOULDN’T BE ANYTHING. I WOULDN’T HAVE EVEN BEEN BORN AND I WOULDN’T BE THE WOMAN/PERSON I AM TODAY.
 I’M STILL BUILDING MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. 
TO BE HONEST AT TIMES I FORGET AND AT ONE POINT I PUT SOMEONE BEFORE GOD BUT GOD WAITED WITH OPEN ARMS AND TOLD ME HE LOVES ME AND FORGAVE ME. 
 GOD IS MY NUMBER ONE AND I DON’T WANT TO EVER FORGET THAT. 
WHEN GOD LET’S YOU LEARN BUT STILL HAS HIS ARMS OPEN WITH SO MUCH LOVE---- THAT AMAZES ME. 
HAVING THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD HAS HELPED ME WITH MY RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY MYSELF, TO RESPECT MYSELF.  LET ME TELL YOU THOUGH BEING CLOSER TO GOD MADE ALL MY THOUGHTS IN MY HEAD FROM BEING IN A TRAFFIC JAM TO CRUISING BY THE COASTLINE, I FEEL MORE AT PEACE AND ENJOYING LIFE MORE. WHICH I MIGHT ADD GOD WANTS US TO ENJOY LIFE. IT TRULY HAS BEEN A BLESSING. WE MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING GOD DOES BUT JUST BE STILL AND LET LOVE GUIDE YOU.  

I DON’T GO TO CHURCH NOT THAT I HAVEN’T BUT NATURE IS WHERE I FEEL GOD CLOSER AND WHERE I LEARN FROM HIM. 
 I DON’T GO TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY, BUT I DO STUDY HIS WORD AND I DID GO TO A CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND WOW THE ENERGY WAS AMAZING, I LOVED IT! I LOVED HOW THEY CELEBRATED AND STUDIED THE WORD AND WHEN I WENT GOD REMINDED ME THAT I KNEW WHAT I HAD TO DO AND THAT WASN’T MY PLACE. I FEEL CLOSER TO GOD IN NATURE. GOD IS WITH ME EVERYWHERE I GO AND REMINDS ME WHEREVER I GO I CAN HELP OTHERS AND MYSELF AND NOT JUST IN CHURCH. I ATTENDED A WOMANS BIBLE STUDY AND I LOVED IT
BUT I’M AN ADVENTURE AND HOMEBODY WOMAN SO WHEREVER I GO I KNOW GOD WILL BE WITH ME. LET ME TELL YOU THOUGH I’M REALLY EXCITED TO GO OUT THERE; I LOVE ADVENTURES! BE THE CHANGE AND LIGHT YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD. GOD IS MY LIGHT AND I HOPE HIS LOVE SHINES THROUGH ME. 


TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND DO NOT LEAN ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. IN ALL YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE WILL MAKE STRAIGHT YOUR PATHS. –PROVERBS 3:5-6

IN HAPPY MOMENTS, PRAISE GOD.
IN DIFFICULT MOMENTS, SEEK GOD.
IN QUIET MOMENTS, TRUTH GOD.
IN EVERY MOMENT, THANK GOD.


WISHING YOU LOTS OF LOVE FROM MY HEART TO YOURS
XOXO AMANDA BERNADETTE
