“That’s just my baby daddy.” My baby mama get on my nerve.” How many times have you heard someone say these words? It seems like everyday, more and more people are becoming baby mama’s and baby daddy’s, instead of husbands and wives.
Now I understand that everyone makes mistakes and deserve a second chance. There are even those extreme instances where people get raped, and are forced into the life of single parenthood. These are the situations that cannot be helped, and put both the mother and child in very uncomfortable situations. But what about those people who constantly keep making those same mistakes? You keep getting pregnant by that same man who was no good to begin with. You keep making babies with that same woman who you would not give your last name to. Why?
People like Kourtney Kardashian really amaze me. It’s like she has been with her boyfriend Scott for all these years, has two babies, and still have no plans on getting married. Now maybe it’s just me, but I just could not see myself keep getting knocked up by some man, that I want to break up with every other day. Why? Children deserve to be raised by two parents who love each other. Now I understand that situations happen and things just don’t work out. My parents were married for some time before they got divorced, and even though their marriage didn’t work, my father was and still is a great father. I guess people feel like having a baby will change their relationship or make it better. Most times that usually ends the relationship because, with the extra stress of having a baby, on top of the existent problems, it is too much to handle. The next time you decide to have sex with someone, ask yourself would you want this person to be the father/mother of your kids and husband/wife?
Think about it…
“Some people treat Jesus like a sugardaddy.” This is the phrase that my stepdad said as we got ready to leave the house, this Christmas morning. When I first heard these words, I kind of laughed, but when I actually thought about it, I realized how much sense it makes.
Many of us use the Lord’s name in vain. We call on him when we are at our lowest, or need a passing grade on a test. Why can’t we call on Him when we are at our highest? Why can’t God be apart of our everyday lives. This is something that I am guilty of myself. Even to this day I still struggle with making time for God’s word. I am trying to make a conscious effort to attempt to talk to Him everyday. It seems like nowadays, as a society we only call on God when there has been a tragedy or when we need financial help. And then if our prayers aren’t answered, we blame it on God as if He did something wrong. Sometimes I wonder if He allows certain tragedies and events to happen to try and get a message through to us.
Another thing I don’t understand is how people blame God for their current situation. People will put themselves in certain situations and then wonder why they can’t get out of them. What are you doing to change your current situation. It’s like we want to call His name for help and then sit back and do the same thing we have always done. How do you expect the Lord to help you if you are not helping yourself? The next time you think about blaming God for something ask yourself “What did I do to put myself in this situation?”

So obviously if you are reading this that means that you lived past what was suppose to be, the end of the world. According to the Mayan calendar, the world was suppose to end on 12/21/2012. Now the only reasoning … Continue reading →
With Christmas only a few days away, I’m sure many of you are getting those last minute presents for family members, or decorating the tree. All of those things have been tradition since before I was born. Now although I love getting presents and spending time with family, I feel like people tend to forget what this holiday is really all about.
I went to church last week, and the pastor spoke about this very subject. He talked about how people have made Christmas their birthday instead of it being about Jesus. While I sat listening to the sermon, I realized how true his words were. Society has brainwashed us into thinking that we have to give and receive gifts on Christmas. If a child does not get anything under the tree, they feel bad or may even have their friends talk down about them. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that gift giving is wrong. I still get excited when my mom hands me a wrapped package on Christmas morning! But as the pastor said in the sermon, we need to put the Christ back in Christmas.
Christmas is now replaced with Xmas, or just the holidays. It’s like we just use this time for parties, celebrations, and spending money. I am also guilty of not upholding the Christmas standard, but after listening to that sermon, it really made me think about making a conscious effort to be better. Christ is the reason we even have a Christmas in the first place. Some people may even say that December 25 was not his actual birthday, but at the end of the day, this is the time that we celebrate his birth. The next time you want to get upset about not receiving that favorite toy, or any other gift, think about the best gift you have and will ever receive…Jesus Christ!
How many of you have had your heart broken? How many of you had a friend betray you? What about having someone you thought was your friend, secretly plotting against you? In life, we are faced with situations and people who try us in more ways than one. People will use, abuse, mistreat, and do all sorts of things to piss you off. As human beings, it is natural for us to feel hatred, and animosity towards people that do us wrong. We may even give them the old fashioned silent treatment.
I have had my share of experiences, where I have had to learn how to forgive. People that I thought were close to me proved to be “snakes” as I call them. Now for a minute, I held a bit of animosity towards these people. I thought that ignoring or giving the silent treatment was the answer. After a while I realized that it just was not worth it. It’s like the Lord was talking to me, teaching me how to forgive. I then begin to slowly start to accept the fact that in life, God will put people in our life as lessons. One of those lessons is the act of forgiveness.
Forgiveness will help you get through life, and feel better about yourself when going through situations. If Jesus can forgive us for all of our many sins, why can’t we forgive our neighbors? Think about it….
