You, Me and ADHD

Hello everyone. So I will start off this blog post with a confession . . . I don’t want to type this post for literally the world to see, but I must remain obedient to the Holy Spirit. We don’t like to expose those things about ourselves that only God knows about for fear of how people will react or think about us. I have accepted that this is a golden opportunity to encourage and uplift others who are going through or will go through a similar situation. Okay . . . taking a big girl breath . . . slowly exhaling. About three years ago my handsome Hasani bear was diagnosed with ADHD, which stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I’ll let you take a moment to let that sink in. To be quite honest with you, I was in D.E.N.I.A.L. for the first two years and even got a second opinion. I also sought the advise of my spiritual leaders and prayed to God for wisdom and guidance.

I’ll be sharing more of my journey thus far in my You, Me and ADHD series. I am also disclosing upfront that I am definitely not an expert on this subject. For any advise or suggestions I provide should first and foremost be brought before God as you go through your journey. For parents out there who have unique children, please do not be ashamed, embarrassed or feel condemned about getting your child tested. Knowledge is power. Since God only blessed us with His Holy Word and not a book with specific instructions for our little one, we have to rely on God for strategies on how to raise our children. My advise: Do what you have to do to develop your parental game plan. God has said that His people perish for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). So take the first step and get your child tested. I’ll be praying for you and your little one. Be encouraged and be blessed. Oh and make sure to let me know if you have a prayer request.

Long Time No Blog

It has been over a year since my last blog. Even though I’ve been quiet here, my life this past year has been anything except quiet. Last June God blessed me and my boys with our own apartment. On the outside, it appears as if God has just left me here and that the promises God has made to me last year and the year before that and the year before that and so on will never come to pass. What God has been teaching me is to have faith in Him regardless of how things look, how I feel, or what people say about my situation. I’ve been getting to know God on a WHOLE NEW LEVEL.

God has been giving me a lot of revelation knowledge as I continue to seek Him. As God did with Moses and the Israelites, He has revealed Himself to me as Yahweh. What’s so unique about the name Yahweh? Yahweh means the Covenant-Keeping God. God has defined His name, which reflects His character as well, as this, “I AM YAHWEH! I not only make promises, I keep them and I make sure they come to pass.” That’s awesome!!!! So this really took a burden off of me months ago. I have been applying for a position, especially in social work for a LOOOOOOONNNNNGGGG time. For four years now. There have been numerous times when I have become discouraged and yes even depressed over the countless No’s I have received. At one point during my prayers I even questioned God about the subject I majored in college and graduate school. Looking back, I know without a doubt that God directed me to the field of social work. God has promised that I would one day have a job in my field.  Yes, I of course have to put in the applications, but Yahweh is going to make sure it comes to pass so that He will get the glory. God is AWESOME!!!!

So whatever God has promised you either directly or through His Word,  just rest in the assurance that God will keep His promise and make sure that it comes to pass. Just trust and have faith in Yahweh and be patient. It’s coming so live in expectation of your blessing. Be blessed.

God Still Protects

Yesterday my best friend and I were in the elevator just chatting away. When the elevator stopped on our floor,  the doors opened and we were still chatting.  All of a sudden a piece of metal about seven inches long and three inches wide fell from where the doors close together and landed out in the hallway. Usually when I’m in the elevator, I’m standing right in front of the doors and walk out as soon as they open, but this time we were standing towards the back of the elevator. If either of us had been standing right behind the doors, that metal cover would have hit us on the head. God is awesome! I am so thankful for His protection.

My friend and I walked out of that elevator praising and thanking God. That morning I also prayed for protection from hurt, harm and danger for my children and myself. I pray that God will encamp His angels around us from the north, the south, the east and the west. I also pray for God to cover us with His Shekinah glory so that we have hedge of protection around us. My friend told me she had prayed Psalms 91 that morning. This is an amazing scripture to meditate on for God’s protection. The Word says “If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,  no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent (Psalm 91:9-10, NIV). I encourage you to read the entire chapter. God will protect you, trust me, He can not fail and He does not lie. Be blessed.
