SAY IT AGAIN SISTAH KITTEN (textscriptz instant replay)

Peace My People,

Greetings from LYLAS 4 Life Ministries, "A modern day ministry, delivering the word of God through technology to unite, empower, and uplift sistahs in Christ." In addition to your weekly TextScriptz, I send you God's love, peace, and blessings. I pray that God will continue to lead you as you lead others.

I’ve heard it said many times that “if you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” Constantly being around teenagers reminds me of who I used to be, my growth, who brought me this far, and who will see me through the rest of this journey called life. All of my experiences so far allow me to have a better understanding of those youth that I am blessed to be surrounded by. Now that is not to say that my nerves don’t get worked a time or two by them, but when I look at the big picture I know that I too was once laying in a pit of nothingness until God picked me up and put my feet on solid ground.

Sometimes I look at “my babies” and I see a bit of who I used to be and even the current me in each one of them. I see the stubbornness, the confusion, the low self-esteem, the wanting to be loved, the running from love, the foolishness, the self doubt, the fear, the pain and the potential. I see them beneath that mask that they wear because I too wore a mask once upon a time not so long ago. Then that undeniable motherly instinct in me hurts for them for they know not what they do. Frustration and disappointment naturally come into play and then I start to vent in anger, mentally pack my bags, and feel like calling it quits. Then the Holy Spirit so lovingly reminds me of the Lord and how “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand” (Psalms 40:2). Therefore, surely he can and will do it for them. In the meantime, I am challenged to stand for what is right, for love, for forgiveness, for truth, and in faith; perhaps I may become the example for them of what God can do when you surrender to Him.

Friends, I pray that you too will be challenged to STAND and be the beacon of hope for those that God has assigned you to. May our light shine for all to see, they are watching.

Loving You Like A Sistah (LYLAS),
Keisha “Kitten” Isaacs

GOT GOD? If you do not know God on a personal level this prayer can start your walk with him today…….
God, I am a sinner and I know I do not deserve your grace or mercy. Still, I trust you and I believe that you sent your son to earth and that he died and rose again for my sins. I thank you Lord for the personal gift of salvation. Amen.

Okay so I’m frustrated right now because I got a “new” phone yesterday to replace my older Treo 755p that was having issues. I took the phone to the store last week and while the technician was checking it out I was quietly saying a prayer that I would end up with a new phone. Sure enough they said “Ms. Isaacs we can’t fix it so we’re ordering you another one and you can pick it up next week.” You better believe I did a mental hallelujah praise dance (cause I really only dance in my head) and I verbally thanked the Lord for the hook up.

Anyway, before I went to pick up my phone on Friday morning I synced the information to my computer so that I could just bounce everything back to the new phone when I returned home. I pick up the new phone with a smile on my face, go home, quickly do the bouncing of information and go on with my day. Later I go to make a call and “WHAT THE…….!” the number is missing. I start strolling through the phone book and plenty of random numbers are GONE!!! So I tell myself “it’s okay Keisha, calm down and go check the phone book on the computer.” When I check it, the numbers are missing from there too. How did they disappear? I called one of the missing numbers from the contact list just the night before. So I call my cousin who has the same phone and she tells me to hurry to the store in case they haven’t reset my old phone. I do that and they still have it there. “Thank you Lord!” I say. The technician transfers my phone book to the new phone, but the same contacts are still missing. “WHAT THE…….!”

Some might say it’s no big deal and perhaps loosing numbers isn’t a big deal, but the problem is a lot of those numbers receive weekly scriptures from me through text. They actually look forward to the Monday inspiration and according to many it helps them get through the week. So now I’m hurt, but hopeful that I can get those numbers back somehow. Anyway, I get pass that situation and move on with mild disappointment, but great hope. Then all of a sudden the phone starts cutting on and off….on and off…on and off…on and off. “WHAT THE …..! I take the battery out to do a soft reset and it’s still acting crazy. Even now as I write this post many hours later the phone is still going crazy. “WHAT THE……!”

I’ve had techno-blues a few other times in the past few years with brand new computers, phones, and sound systems. I know it is a trick of the enemy to discourage me because God has assigned me to lead a ministry that uses technology to unite, empower, and uplift sistahs in Christ. But the devil is a liar! I’m headed to the store right now and I’m expecting to leave out of there as a satisfied customer and a highly favored saint. I’ll talk to yall later, the store opens in 30 minutes and Keisha “Kitten” Isaacs will be waiting at the door. Peace out!

I’m putting this on front street and I hope and pray that whoever reads this will hold a sistah accountable. I am the biggest I have ever been in my life and enough is enough. I declare that emotional eating STOPS tonight. I declare that working out BEGINS today. I declare that building my temple with the strength of the Lord is a priority right NOW! In the name of Jesus I pray for discipline, strength, and will power to see these declarations through until the day I cease to live. AMEN!

Journal Pagez

Dear God,

This week I have felt so weak and though I do not cry often my tears flowed heavily until the tissue could no longer absorb my pain. I wiped my face, but the residue of the hurt still remains. I am not weak in the sense that I want to indulge in things pleasing to my flesh, but still my flesh is weak. I am tired for the race becomes hard sometimes. Still I try so hard to keep running even when I am out of breath. Oh Father in Heaven you know that I breathe to please you for you know my heart’s desire. I choose you oh Lord over all the temptations of the world. I’d rather have you in the end even if I am destined to live alone.

I am calling out to you my Savior for I need you to help me continue this journey. Please strengthen me. Please fill my cup and anoint my head with oil so that I may be strengthened and continue to do the work that you have called me to do. Even with tears in my eyes, I believe in you. Even when I feel tired and weak, I believe in you. I know that you will comfort me. I know that your comfort outweighs the comfort that my family and friends attempt to give when they become aware that I am in need of comfort. In fact, you know my weaknesses and needs more than even I know them.

Father I patiently wait and I surrender to you, for your will be done in my life. I give you praises in advance. God, you are wonderfully awesome and I love you so much.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

Loving You Always,
Keisha “Kitten” Isaacs

Blessings Galore at 34!!!!!!!

“God is Resurrecting me at 33” was my birthday theme last year. That was a special age and theme for me because that is how old Jesus was when he died on the cross and rose again 3 days later. I truly feel like God did a new thing in me last year.

On May 10th I celebrated my birthday and I declared “BLESSINGS GALORE at 34!” I believe that this year God is going to shower me with so many blessings that it is going to blow my mind. I can’t wait to tell my testimony for God’s goodness, favor, grace, and mercy!

If you were to choose a theme for your upcoming birthday what would it be and why???

I am open for discussion. Will there be one?

I'm an open book. Here's your chance to ask me any question and I will answer it. So, go for it. Nothing is off limits. So, again, will there be one?
