SAY IT AGAIN SISTAH KITTEN (Textscriptz Instant Replay)

There comes a time in life when we just have to be real with ourselves. We have to get the courage to look in the mirror and ask ourselves ‘who are we, really’. We have to pray for God to reveal us to us and even show us the hidden us that not even we can see.

It’s so easy to float through life pretending to be na├»ve about our true realities. Lying to not only others, but ourselves as we cover up the truth with makeup, clothes, smiles, and laughter. However, deep down inside we ache from the pain that lives within. We become weary from the heavy burden of concealed tears that we carry day after day.

Friends, the Lord spoke a word to me the other day. I share it with you today with hopes that you are released from any self deceit that is hindering your liberty through Christ. Lies are like shackles that bind you to deception, unlock the truth and experience freedom. (Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs)


“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).

UNSOLVED MYSTERY

Last night my sistah-girl (transition: one of my best friends), her toddler, and I ate some Chinese food that has caused me to question the reason why I recently aborted my 2 year vegetarian kick. Yes, I gave up all meat for 2 whole years! Just in case you’re wondering I did not lose weight. As a matter of fact, I would get the craziest looks or comments when some would find out I didn’t eat meat. I won’t label those looks and comments as ignorance, but rather lack of knowledge which is just a nice way of saying IGNANT! But I’m going off on a tangent!

Anyway, we ordered orange chicken, shrimp fried rice, and chicken and broccoli. I don’t know what in the world we ate, but it sho wasn’t chicken!!!!!!!!Needless to say, I have lost my appetite for Chinese food and I am trying to get my mind back on the no meat thing after that mystery meat. YUCK!

I like to give myself challenges and I’ve always wanted to be a vegetarian (don’t know why, but I just did). So I made up my mind and I made it happen for 2 years straight. So many people would be like “no way could I give up meat”. It really wasn’t hard once I did it.

What is something that you think you’d never be able to give up? Why not?

Life is but a drama unfolding………
Similar to bed sheets…..
Or is it just me?
Awakening to ruffled realities…
That were stained...with the past…...
F
rom yesterday’s sweat...

RUN FORREST RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was thinking about motivation and how taxing it can be to constantly have to stimulate movement in someone. It’s especially draining when the person is claiming to want more, but seemingly does less than required. “I don’t wanna have to depend on nobody!” is what they say, but their actions indicate otherwise. How can you gain more when you put in minimal effort?

I work with teenagers and part of my job is to encourage them to attend school, find employment, take care of their hygiene, and keep the house clean. I often have to pray for strength because sometimes I find myself on the edge ready to explode. Why do I have to fight you to fight for yourself????

There is not going to be a “Jenny” around all the time, so we’ve got to learn how to encourage ourselves. Motivation comes from within my friend. Even the Little Red Caboose had to recognize that and when he did….HE DID!

No Bells & Whistles

Take me as I am ….complicated as it may be…
See the inner beauty....recognize the Queen in me….
Though there is no throne…the crown still fits….
Rather I wear it or not…on my dome it sits
I know who I am…no fashion can tell me….
In fact it compels me…not to conform…
Instead I choose to form….my own believes…
No bells and whistles are necessary for me….
I’m still royalty…rather heels or flats
Permed…locked….or naps…..
I be ...who I ...be….A Queen…
So take me as I am…complicated as it may be

SAY IT AGAIN SISTAH KITTEN (Textscriptz Instant Replay)

"Hell, the truth of the matter is I'm one blunt, two shots, three sexual songs, four more lonely nights and five fingers away from picking up my old ways. Therefore, I don’t have time to judge you, because I'm too busy asking God to forgive my sinful thoughts, words, and actions." (Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs)

Addictive Nature

I was just thinking about how I have an addictive nature and if I'm not careful it could get me in big trouble spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and/or physically. I'm not sure if all of us have that same nature or if it's just certain people. However, I have known of many people who are addicted to shopping, shoes, money, sex, drugs, alcohol, love, purses, food, and the list could probably go on and on.

As I sit and reflect on this thing caused addiction I can't help but acknowledge that I have flip flopped addictions throughout my lifetime. I have gone from one addiction to another, similiar to the person who gives up cigerettes and then starts eating chocolate. While reflecting, I have to be honest and say my current "flip flop addiction" is food. I'm abstaining from sex and so I tend to eat when lustful desires stand before me and lonely nights.

A few months ago I was becoming addicted to electronic devices and that has faded away. What's the next addiction? I tell you what I hope and pray it's something healthy cause electronic devices is taking money out of my pocket and food is going to make me burst out of my pants!

They say that first step is admitting you have a problem..........okay so what's step two??????
What is it that causes addiction? What causes many to become compulsively and physiologically dependent on something for gratification? Do you have any addictions?

p.s. I enjoy this blogging thing, but I'm working hard not to make it my newest addiction! Hey, maybe step two is to be aware!

Peace Became Still

It had been days since she last saw him and way too many minutes had passed since they last spoke. How could he just disappear into thin air? Where was he when she needed him most of all. She searched in the depths of her mind to recall the last time when they were separated for such a long time as this. She felt so alone and hurt by his disappearing act. Suddenly she felt a peace come over her body bringing her to a calm place. She slowly wiped the tears from her eyes as she heard him say… “I am still here, fear not I will never leave you nor forsake you.” At that very moment peace became still…..

Metaphoric Labor

I take a quick thought then I put it on paper.....
Give birth to a new image with a metaphoric labor...
I be the mother of this poem....
Raising words to form....
A full grown opinion....
Writing truth on this paper till my fingers hurt..
Picking brains like cotton I'll put in work...
Until the job is done...
Pray to rise up like the morning sun....
So the light can shine...
I wanna bring the WORD to this world ...
We soo blind that we can't see...
God give me wisdom to nurse your children with each delivery....
