I'm tickled by we the people and our opinions. Some opinions you take with a grain of
salt and some you actually pay attention to. Wisdom is Key.
Isolating yourself is different from when God isolates you. Want to know how--when you
find yourself alone and want to seek God more. That is different from when you don't
get along with people or you are shy and you are not the best at communication. It
I noticed that at one point in my life I isolated myself.
I remember another point in my life that it was God isolating me.
You remember the whole ordeal fooled me once shame on you, fooled me twice shame
on me. Well, this is close to my explanation. We need to learn how to pass the test the
first time around so we won't have to go back into the same situation we just left.
Stay with me: Isolation!
Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh [and] intermeddleth with all
Reason for Church:
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but
exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
I remember moving off to college. I had a vehicle "black beauty", I had my class
schedule set, I had my own room and I knew only 2 people! I would try to make it to
social events during my first semester, but I was also working, so I missed out on a lot.
But it didn't matter to me because the activities that everyone was participating in did
not interest me. I became a home-bodied kind of girl. You see, back home, there was a
beach and I had my home-girls so I was out all the time and we were all over the city.
But as for college, I went to class, went to work, went to church, and went home. I didn't
linger after class or talk after church to people and relationships from work stayed right
I began to think college was boring. It was like everyone wanted to just club and drink,
in which drinking was never a part of my diet and I was so over clubbing because I got
that out of my system years before. I was strictly business going into college. After I
found out that my life depended on how attentive I needed to be. I had zero tolerance
for games. So I isolated myself!
What happened after that, other students began to notice me and they were wondering
why my grades were good. They began trying to have a study group with me. Boys
began to try to talk to me. I didn’t allow my grades to go down, I graduated with honors;
even dealing with the temptations that came along with surviving college, especially an
Another time I was isolated besides my 23rd birthday that I don't want to remember. Lol!
When I moved to The Big Apple after graduating my first three months I closed myself
off from getting to know people or getting around. I had no family in NYC, not much
funding, and doors closing left and right. But God!
During this time I was seeking God all the more, like never before, for directions and
any king of instructions. Every now and then I kept second guessing if I was suppose to
even be in New York.
This reminds me of a prayer: I asked God to teach me how to love and hear and
appreciate him more. Well, they that wait on the Lord! Lol! Because God was all I had.
My parents were supportive but they were miles upon miles away.
When I was sick they would pray for me and made sure that meds were available, when
I would cry, because things were so difficult, they would talk to me, and when I needed
guidance they would pray with me. But God!
1 Chronicles 16:11
Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole
Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment;
seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground:
for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
God was there the entire time. Probably laughing at me, not in a bad sense, but
because He knew how strong He made me and I was acting up! I would talk and laugh
with God and say aloud: ‘I know you have not brought me this far to leave me.’
God was there comforting me, healing me, I was becoming bold and full of courage. I
was patient, and still am! I was reading my bible more and constantly praising God. It
was no joke. I felt like Daniel in the Lion’s Den or Paul and Silas in prison. I had to
praise my way through. God was my only way out.
Daniel in the Lion’s Den
Paul and Silas Praise in Jail
These two stories are a must read. The one tell of what your belief in God can do and
the other tells you that your praise can set you free!
Isolation can be phenomenal! Just be careful its God ordering your steps and not you
Always keep God at the center of your life!
Girls we are taught that we are Jewels, well some of us are! But if no one in the whole
wide world ever told you, guess what? You are such a Precious Jewel! :)
I'm going to use girls because i'm speaking to the entire female genetic make-up of
humans. lol Every female is not a lady or a woman!
But girls we are SMART! SHARP! ON POINT! But then again...
I see girls all the time being emotionally thirsty! Craving attention!
Yes, we are extra emotional beings sent to carry the burdens of our “Aunt Flow”, “End
of a Sentence”, or “Cousin coming to visit” or whatever you call your time of the month
and child birth and the keeping together of family. All that on top of saving the world and
wanting world peace, aha!
Girls we are so important to society that it is not even funny! Do you know how
important you are?
I hear girls talking about getting quick money or sleeping with this boy or that boy and
how she initiated everything (touching on him, mmm hmm don't act like you don't know
what I’m talking about). It's really sad now that I look back at my life at the guys I talked
to. I didn't mess with them, "talk to" for me is literally talking. When they started talking
foolishness I would walk away from that whole situation. My friends were like, “Dang girl
a new one this week?” And I was always like, ‘Girl if you only knew!’
We know when guys are trying to go further with us, but some of us don't know how to
control our hormones and emotions. We just allow whatever to happen...Not A Good
Look! I'm also guilty as charged!
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of
your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will
Our body's are suppose to be Holy and acceptable to God. I know virgins in their 20's
and they are beautiful, confident, and are waiting for the “right one”.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your
bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable
Matthew 7: 6
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before
swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
This was a lesson about judgment but it fits for this topic! Don't give your body,
something Holy, to dogs, we can say unfit individuals!!!
What makes a person FIT??? SOMEONE WHO LIVES FOR GOD AND THEY ARE
SAVED!!! AND THEY MARRY YOU, FIRST!!!
My words are not for everyone!!! What has me discussing this: young girls who sell
themselves short, young girls getting abused, young girls who think they can't do better,
young girls with low self-confidence! I have been there and done some of that. Some of
it happened to friends of mine, or I observed with my own eyes or someone shared in a
mere one on one conversation!
How do you find this Guy? YOU DON'T GO SEARCHING FOR HIM! You must go
searching for God!
Matthew 6: 33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things
shall be added unto you.
Luke 12: 31
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things
shall be added unto you.
ALL- does that mean some? Nah, everything God has for you will be given to you, but
you must put God FIRST. Pretty self-explanatory but if you need me to expound,
definitely leave a comment and I will share!
Scriptures about a girl who did not give up her jewel/applesauce/pocketbook until
One of my favorite books in The Bible, about 10 Chapters!!! It’s about a Virgin who
became Queen, and because of her obedience she remained Queen! The Book of
The Book of Proverbs is really awesome regarding a Virtuous Woman. It is in verse 31
Old Testament of the Bible.
The Book of Ruth regarding a strong woman in the Bible-Old Testament.
Rahab (knew how to cover men and keep their secrets) was cool so search her and
Sarah (Abraham's wife) in The Bible.
Spiritual Seductive Book in The Bible: Song of Solomon is about LOVE, ADORATION,
These women in The Bible had drama like us, they were courageous, and some were
prostitutes, some young and some old. However, they made it through life and were
recognized and loved by God!
Keep God 1st :) Read the various stories in The Bible about women and their trials!

Let me set-up this scenario for you! I was out at a Karaoke spot for a birthday gathering.
A guy that I knew from a theater project was there. Out of the blue he asked me a
question that astounded me and I didn't have the answer to it, right away!
He asked why was I so happy? What made me so happy? He told me I seemed like I
was a happy person. So in my mind I was like, what are you talking about? How do you
know I am a happy person, it aint like we know each other! And, why am “I” so happy?
So I asked him, "What do you mean?"
Because that was the most random thing you can ask someone in a Karaoke spot when
all you want to do is grab the mic and not have a care in the world.
He said because of my TWEETS on twitter! I was like Oooooohh! I forgot we
exchanged twitter names…so I did know him, kinda!
I was reminded of a few things.
1. What you put out on social network, is what people judge you by!
2. People are always watching you!
3. Depending on what you put out on these social networks people will look to you for
Jesus in the temple at a Young Age (12) Luke 2: 41-52
Talking about setting an example! This guy I am sure is at the least 10 years older than
me. He said he wasn't happy and he wasn't happy with himself.
I just looked at him at first. Once again in my mind I was like: You never know what
people are feeling or going through, that's why you don't judge! Plus the Bible says
don't! Regarding judging! Matthew 7: 1-5
People will just say, and which is true, "It's the Love of God". But it is also the
realization that it is not about me-it is about God, totally! I told that guy it’s about loving
others, you know, living unselfishly.
Reasons to be HAPPY!
I shared with him that people are so consumed with themselves that they forget the
people that helped them get to where they are and they forget to say something as
small as a "Thank You"! I told him I am a happy person because doing for others brings me joy.
I even wrote in a doodling drawing game: "It's Not About Me" then took a picture of it.
You know these iPhones can take screen shots. Then I made the picture my
background on my phone. To remind me every day!
But back to the lesson of it all: Be careful with social media, it’s starting to be used to
define the character of a person. If you can allow your light to Shine also known as
allowing people to see the God in you, Please do! God will reward your faithfulness.
Also, continue to set an example for others you never know who is watching you or
keeping up with you to see if you are living up to what you say, or they genuinely want
to learn from you.
I love you always hope this post inspires you like it inspires me. Keep God 1st Always!
