A Request From Me to You


Happy Wednesday!

Today, I want to ask for a request from you. To offer up words of encouragement and advice for me. Lately, I have been dealing with a few things where I feel misunderstood, disregarded, and lied about and lied to. I am working to keep my focus on Christ throughout it all and not to focus on the situation. I know that is not where my head should be. I must work to always be the best version of Jena I can be, even in difficult situations and I am just asking that you keep me in prayer today! I am also asking for your words of encouragement or advice on what has helped you, or scriptures, quotes videos, pictures that inspire you to stay uplifted and not focus on the negative! 

I know what has helped me in the past, music often breaks me. The right song can touch my heart in ways that tear down walls I have built up and make me see things in a different perspective. Today I am going to focus on giving someone else the benefit of the doubt. To say, maybe they didn't mean it that way, maybe they don't understand me. 

And I just ask for you to stand with me on it all. I know it will be well, and I ask that you agree on this with me. I know that with God and you all behind me everything will work out the way it was meant to work out. 

Have a very blessed day!!

  2. A friend of mine gave me the Anthony Evans "Home" album and it helped me through a tough time. It's great. My favorites are "Fighting for Me", "Trust in Me Now", and "Silence". You can find them on YouTube. Other than that, I encourage you to see beyond the situation. Everything God allows us to go through is to build our character and faith. Trust in Him. Smile. Pray for those against you and remember that the situation is temporary. Before you know it you'll be back in good spirits. God bless!

  10. Isaiah 41:10
    Roman 8:28
    2 Corinthians 1:3-4
    Philippians 4:6


    One thing that helps me in times where I doubt is music as well. I love the songs
    "My Choice is You"- Shonlock
    "More of you" - Colton Dixon
    "Lay them down"- Sanctus Real
    "Carry Me" Moriah Peters
    "Today is Beautiful" David Dunn


    All of those give me courage and uplift me that Jesus has got me through it all.
    Remember all your blessings. Jesus has such an anointing on you. Remember how precious you are to Him. He is already conquering all you are going through! It is well! :)

  24. I'm so sorry you are going through this, and know I am lifting you in prayer, sweet one! Psalm 27:1 has helped me through some tough times. Keep your focus on the One who comforts, directs & strengthens! Also, the song Overwhelmed by Big Daddy Weave just ruins me! Praying for you, sister! **hugs**

  25. I think the best thing you can do in situations like this is remember that you can only control your own actions, not other people's reactions. As long as you know you've done your best in a given situation, that's all that matters :)

It's hard when you're in a bad space, sometimes nothing will pull you out but from reading your blog lately you seem like such a positive person so I think you'll be back to your self soon. I have to agree with you about the music thing too! x
