Don’t Judge A Book By The Cover: Looks Can Be Deceiving

 

I am very youthful within appearance and I am soft-spoken.

Many think I am younger than what I am. Even when I was in my twenties and thirties, I was either mistaken for a teenager or other than the age that I actually was.

I turned forty-seven this past spring and I still have a young-looking face, body, and young-sounding voice.

I am not at all complaining, however, some ignorant people misjudge me by my appearance.

I don’t take it personal (it is not a reflection of me but of them and their lack of experience or diversity) yet I get tired of it.

As a younger person I was never the naive, silly or vulnerable type. I was wise beyond my years and spunky.

People were often shocked at the knowledge, strength, and understanding I had at an early age.

All young people are not dumb and all older people do not possess wisdom. And vice-versa. It all depends on the individual. I have always been an open-minded person.

I am not one to be underestimated and I am not one to be played with.

It is funny when certain people think that they can or could destroy me- I turn around to destroy their asses!

 

My Vagina

 

Some may find me to be a bore since I never was a whore.

I have never smoked, I have never drunk alcohol, I have never done drugs, and I have never been arrested.

I was classified as a good girl growing up and just about everyone in my neighborhood was aware of me being unlike the majority.

Many were very jealous of me, some were proud of me, admired me, and were inspired by me- yet I was just me.

Unafraid, unabashed and uninfluenced by this society.

I was never promiscuous or interested in sex.

There were a lot of men and women who found me to be pretty and/or sexy, however, their projection had nothing to do with my affection.

I was always classy and a bit sassy but really just high-spirited.

I never had sexual intercourse as a teenager. I wasn’t having sex during my twenties. I didn’t have sex in my thirties, and I still don’t have sex now that I am in my forties and to me, I am exciting!

It is exciting to stand out from the crowd. It is exciting to be unlike the world.

It is exciting to live pure within spirit.

I have never been lustful. I think it is disgusting the way this society constantly promotes sex.

I find pleasure and satisfaction in love, knowledge, spiritual endowment and spiritual empowerment.

We don’t have to take our clothes off to have a good time. My moments of ecstasy and climax have all been while I was fully dressed in the beauty of the things that bring to me my true joy and fulfillment.

P.S. I am not condoning or promoting abortion. However, when it comes to a woman’s body and whether or not she chooses to be intimate or not, or whether she decides to have a child or not it is completely her choice. This is a control issue and the government has no right to decide what we do with our own bodies. People who consider it a moral issue need to mind their business as that is between the individual and God. We will all answer for our actions one day. God knows a person’s heart and situation he is the only true judge.

 

 

 

 

A Serious Matter Of Thought

 

The supervisor I work for is a licensed physician who owns her own private establishment.

As one bound to confidentiality in regard to our clients I am not at liberty to divulge information about our clients.

However, I will acknowledge that as a health care professional for now, and for the last past eight and a half years whether I have worked at a facility, hospital, or residential community area I have dealt with and come across all types of people with all types of ailments.

I just have to say, those of us who are blessed with good, excellent, or fair health with no serious physical or mental disability should be thankful and grateful. Never take for granted what certain others with illness or impairment could only dream to be healed from.

I am not minimizing anyone’s struggles in life whatever they may be from time to time as we all go through things in life. All of what burdens us are significant.

Though, our problems are nothing compared to what others may be experiencing. Not only in matters of health, but also those who may not have enough food to eat, those who live in other countries without the freedom we have, and so on.

There are people within the world who have much more to complain about than we do. We live in a paradise in comparison to them. And the Lord knows that nothing in or about this world is a paradise.

 

 

Age Is No Factor When God Decides To Bless You

I am at the age of forty-six now. However, it did not take me to get a specific age to acquire particular knowledge.

I gained wisdom early on within my youth. I knew what life was about by the age of twelve.

I was born with spiritual and intellectual gifts that made me wise in ways that certain people did not appreciate. Those who were not on the level themselves who gave off negative energy.

I knew things outside the ordinary range, beyond the normal sensory range of contact/area. I had the faculty to perceive things or events in the past, present, and future.

The scientific name for what I was born with is extrasensory perception/clairvoyance.

I have enhanced by learning extra, but I already knew much of what I know now that many people take years to learn through age, and by their own personal experience. Through experience within things some people still do not grasp on correctly and they walk through life with false perception and misrepresentation of life factors.

I had a lot of problems with negative people growing up because I was bright.

However, I do not understand why certain people thought that because they did not know particular things when they were younger that I was not supposed to either while I was at a young age.

People have a tendency to generalize and to reflect their inadequacies or insecurities onto others, especially when the aspect is common to them.

Some people do not want to accept another person who is younger than them to know more or just as much as they do because of ego or reasons of bias.

In fact, I knew more than they did in regard to particular matters within their older age. If I tried to correct an older person when they made an error, or tried to explain where I was coming from, they would react nasty or disdainful.

Not all people reacted within this fashion toward me only a “specific type”.

When I was younger there were positive people who told me and my mother that they were nowhere near the level that we was on when they were at my age.

I have been called unique, rare, strange, brilliant, and crazy (by jealous people). I don’t care. To me, I am just a spiritual person having a human experience continuing to grow on my journey in trusting and understanding my purpose and relationship with God.

I was always ahead of my time, advanced in ways that came without anyone having to teach me.

My mother and I were able to teach ourselves as youngsters. When we went to school, we exceled in the subjects we were strong in.

School did not make us smart, though, we were already adept to begin with.

Yes. One can be self-taught within a lot of things, especially within life experience.

School does not necessarily make one bright.

Education is the process of learning, acquiring knowledge of or skill in something by study, encounter, or being taught. The setting is irrelevant when things are ascertained.

I know plenty of people who attended school who are not smart.

Intelligence is something one is born with.

Knowledge or information is gained, and comes through and within various forms.

It is whether or not one is able to grasp what they learn.

As a person, and as an adult, I have never treated one inferior just because they were younger. I never tried to use my age as a weapon.

Just because one is older does not necessarily make one wiser.

There are young people who can teach an older person something just as there are older people who can teach the young many things.

I don’t consider myself to know everything at all. And I am definitely not the smartest person in the world. I am ahead within the gifts I possess, and I have a lot of knowledge, but I don’t want to know everything. I just know I have a heightened sense and connection to a realm within life that I was always familiar with.

Acknowledging our capabilities is not an expression of conceit or an exaggerated opinion of oneself when one is level-headed and logical. God wants us to be aware of who we are and the things that he equipped within us to have and accomplish to show his glory. Within our ability is a sample of God’s incredibility.

I write this as an encouragement to those who have been mistreated by older folks that have a tendency to manipulate, corrupt, hold-back, or mislead, because they cannot stand to see a younger individual who did not mess up or get caught into the same perils of life they once did.

Instead of being an example to cheer one on, they would rather drag another down as that younger person may have been a reminder of all they could have been, or wanted to be at one time or another in life.

We are blessed with certain gifts that God bestows upon us and some of us are anointed at a very young age.

God makes no mistakes. Do not let anyone tell you what you are not, what you do not know, or what you are not capable of doing.

When God enables us for his intention no one can disable us through attempting to bring about our suspension.

 

 

 

Undesirables

When one has wisdom, and can see through others, some people do not like it.

When we do not like, or do not take to certain others, and prefer to keep our distance from them and not, or no longer associate with them they will react adversely.

It is hard for some to accept or handle the fact that they are at fault within areas that we can discern so they will accuse us or another as being crazy (usually a head- game/gaslighting) or as the one with the problem.

Some people do not think or believe that they are the ones who are trouble.

Circumstances and situations can become complicated when others are not on the level and are not within harmony, or up to par with another person’s wavelength.

Sometimes they might even believe that they are the ones on the higher level due to the denial rooted within their own lack of knowledge within particular areas of life and within themselves.

There are those who will gang up on one when they do not believe they are wrong, especially if there are others who they get along with who share their same mentality.

Often those of a similar mindset no matter how nescient (ignorant), misinformed, condescending, judgmental, or twisted in thinking they may be will get along because they can relate to their own distorted and parochial views that make sense to them.

A lot of these people are deceptive, manipulative, spiteful, petty, envious/jealous, insecure, and unreasonable.

Misery loves company and when they know we are at ease and living in peace they become even bitter.

 

 

My True Source Of Help

The Lord is my best friend. He is the one I go to for help.

Aside from my mother, I would depend on him before I would depend on anyone else.

God was always ready, willing, and able to help me even when I did not know that he had already taken charge of my situation ahead of time.

Isn’t he a mighty rock in the nick of time?!  

There are people we interact with and who help us out in life such as, parents, doctors, teachers, and so on, but none of them can bring aid or relief to us in the way that God does.

From my own personal experience, it has always been God who was able to fix and to correct my situation because he is the only one who truly knew every core of my inner being and where to operate.

I never needed a counselor, therapist, or shoulder to cry on (aside from my mother), ever in my life. All I needed was a spiritual advisor, and I speak the truth!

Only a higher power was able to solve my specific problem, conflict, or difficulty. Whatever it was that was missing only God could replace it for me.

It is still this way today.

A force to prevent me to seek help from where there is no requirement unto what would not be understood.

When my circumstance does occasionally arise, the affairs are derived mostly from a spiritual aspect that connects to my physical elemental situation.

God comprehends in the ultimate way that others cannot.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth! -Psalms 121: 1-2

 

 

 

Spiritual Communication With The Lord

The Lord is so kind. He showed me his care as he does within so many ways.

Yesterday he sent me an unexpected message, answers along with guidance and encouragement to a situation I was sure of, yet had pondered through anyway.

Let not your heart be troubled. Trust in Godand trust also in me“. -John 14: 1 was the Lord’s address to me.

The life of God’s children is not easy; however, we should not be worried or anxious in our hearts. There is no reason for any of us to be troubled if we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

We are not to be intimidated or frightened by the devil or by the magnitude of the evil and negativity in this world.

God let me know as a confirmation that it was okay to justifiably erase toxic people from my life without turning back. In fact, that it was a necessary act of spiritual, mental, and emotional cleansing.

We are to rid ourselves of those who speak negativity into our lives, and who try to weigh us down.

Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. The LORD has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster. Proverbs 16: 3

 

Accountable Within Our Gifts

God entrusts each of us with gifts and responsibilities that we are accountable to him for.

As faithful servants we are to show good stewardship by using our gifts wisely.

We can creatively use our talents and skills in a variety of unique ways.

When we give of ourselves without wanting anything in return, we graciously touch the heart of God.

Many of us gain satisfaction in doing what we love.

When we enjoy what we do, how we spend our time, and why we continue on in our efforts we receive a celestial gratification.

It is a pleasure that is more rewarding than worldly satisfaction, or fulfillment.

Our gifts are automatically utilized for the greater benefit of all who we touch when who we touch is a benefit utilized automatically.

Daily Bread

Past encounters, certain life experiences, and having strong spiritual gifts gave me a better understanding of interpreting scripture.

I do not comprehend the entire bible due to particular mysteries unknown but I realized that I had a stronger relationship with God than I thought I did years ago and even now.

The faith I had was always there. I carried a pure and innocent essence that remains intact to this day.

I enjoy reading scripture and connecting with God. He knows how to reach me and where to lead me as he designed me. I have my favorite moments and place when I devote time to worship. I find scripture inspirational and encouraging.

It is also a preparation course to get me ready for what is ready to come in eternity.

Such a beautiful and wonderful plan the Lord has in store. So magnificent we cannot imagine. As the Bible says, “No eye has seen and no ear has heard”.

It is like a dream we are unable to picture.

Building For The Future

I don’t live for this world but I know how to survive in this world.

God does not want us to place significant value into this life.

Yes, he wants us to live right, take care of ourselves, work (a job can be a stay a home mom and etc… duty is whatever pertains to an individual’s mission within life), and be responsible. However, the Lord does not advise us to invest ourselves into this world of temporary uselessness as it is perishing away.

We are to spend this time getting organized, getting the word out, and getting ready for the real everlasting world to come.

A new heaven brought down to a new earth.

The Writing Hand

I love to write. I have been writing since childhood.

I do not write just to be writing. I have to be moved to write.

Whether if it is by spirit, inclination, or both, the experience is beyond me.

From time to time there is an intermission, though, the ability and performance is always there. But the essence of celestial flow has its frame of consistent exercise.

There was a rare time recently where I did not think I would be interested in writing anymore. I thought the thrill was gone but God showed me different.

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. –Philippians 2:13  

When we are open to let the Lord work through us to fulfill our purpose, he will generate his power and continue to lead us down the correct path.

When we may believe we are finished or have no more to offer in a particular area due to mixed feelings, the Lord will unexpectedly surprise us by showing us that he is not yet done with us.

His silence or what seemed as a stagnation was just a reformation to an elevation.latoya lawrence 

What God Inspired Me To Say Today

I felt good as I mostly do when I awoke this morning and the Holy Spirit put something on my heart to write. God sometimes uses our own experience to inspire others. Maybe someone needs to hear this message:

As I have said before within the past which still holds true for me today.

There is so much for me to be grateful and thankful for. I am very blessed.

I thank God for waking me up in the morning until the day he finally calls me home to be united with him, and to be reunited with certain loved ones who I know made it there on the celestial plane to rejoice with him.

I am thankful for my good health, peace of mind, spirituality, confidence, strength, and jobs that allow me to provide and to take care of myself. I do not have to depend on anyone. I am also grateful and thankful for all the other blessings granted to me by God.

I am one who has always been able to handle anything that came my way in life.

No matter what type of adversity I was always able to endure.

I was always able to deal with whatever it was that I had to walk through with faith. I did not have to rely on anybody.

I was never the type to run to anyone for help, or to be needy.

God had constantly given me everything that I needed to survive in this world.

Even when I have had to experience really tough, challenging times he was always there to see me through.

Satan himself might bring trouble into our lives, he especially likes to work through people, however, I am one able to stand against the schemes of the evil one.

As children of God, he has given us everything that we require to be victorious. God wants us to prevail.

If some may not feel that they have what it takes to overcome or to defeat one has to Go by what God says and not by what their shifting emotions tell them.

The Lord delivers us and he empowers us.

We believe as we enjoy our happy times therefore, we must believe when we go through our difficult times.

We are here to live for God not for this negative world around us and he has our backs time and time again.

Do not lose faith and do not lose heart. If there are times that one feels hopeless or alone do not be discouraged.

If one grows tired, or weary, do not be discouraged.

The Lord is always with us. He is always there within and beside us cheering us on.

God will absolutely protect us from anything directed toward us from the devil.

God prepares and equips his children to stand against the storms, tactics, and temptations of the evil one.

So, remain strong, and remain assured within oneself as well as holding on to that confidence in God.

Enjoy peace, comfort, love, and happiness given to us by the Lord. His power is within us all. All who belong to him. And, as children of our God we are ultimately powerful!

Remember all of the Lord’s promises and his day to day providence within our lives.
