SAY IT AGAIN SISTAH KITTEN (Textscriptz Instant Replay)

Hey Family,

I pray for discipline as it relates to all areas of our lives.

Recently a sister asked me “What is one thing that you still struggle with?” It really didn’t take much thought to answer that question because this has been a long time struggle for me. It’s a struggle that in order to conquer requires discipline and newly formed habits. Well, actually most struggles require the same methods to defeat them. Anyway, I was honest in my response and I told her that I struggle with emotional eating. Truth to be told, I think this emotional eating thing is a family curse and from my observations it has affected at least four generations. However, I boldly declare that it will no longer be in counting!

They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. I have a guy friend who will proudly admit that he too is an emotional eater. In fact, he goes on to say, “I eat when I’m happy. I eat when I’m sad. I eat when I’m bored. I eat when I’m mad.” I have a few other friends who may not admit to being emotional eaters, but they will certainly admit that they can eat the roof off of a candy house! I mean let’s keep it real, food is good but all food ain’t good for us. Especially when we overindulge!

I’m personally praying for strength to defeat the Munchie Man that lives inside my stomach. I’m praying for the will-power to run away from the refrigerator, out the door, and down the street to the local track! I’m praying that the Lord will not only help me with my physical eating habits but also my spiritual consumption. In fact, Lord please teach me how to pass up a honey bun and grab hold of your word, because “how sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalms 119:103). Family, please stand in agreement with me, at least 5 feet away from the refrigerator that I will take heed to the need to always feed my spirit and not excessively feed my body!

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.

A Child of God is Born

Early this morning I had the pleasure of witnessing one of my best friends (my sistah 4 life), Tolanda give birth to a beautiful baby girl. Witnessing this birth was special for several reasons. One being that it is an absolute miracle to see God bring forth a new life. Second, this was the second baby I’ve seen born in less than a year. Thirdly, it was further confirmation that God truly does answer prayers.

Just less than two years ago, my sistah and I prayed together almost daily. We would faithfully stand in agreement with each other as we took our prayer request to the Lord. We both were requesting to grow in Christ, be strong women of God, to become wives, to have a family, to be debt free, and to walk in complete victory. Well, over the past year I have witnessed God answering our prayers, but I have been particularly in awe with the things God has been doing in Tolanda’s life.

In less than a year, Tolanda was reunited with her first love and they got married, they moved into a house in the area she wanted to live in, they have a blended family, and NOW God has given my sistah the daughter that we used to thank him in advance for. God is so good and faithful to his word!

At this time, I am rejoicing in the blessings that are manifesting in my sistah’s life, fully believing that my prayers will be answered as well in due season! Meanwhile, I’ve got another baby to love on and Tee Tee can’t wait to get to know our first official baby girl of LYLAS. We can’t wait to teach Morgan Serenity the word of God and raise her up to be the prayer warrior God has called her to be!

Simple Like That!

Today I twisted up a few nappy roots in the front of my head, took a 2 hour power nap and then went to get my eyebrows waxed. It’s funny how something simple like that can make me feel like a brand new woman....

What are some of the simple things in life that make you feel brand new?

UPDATE on: TOO many teachers for the Chalkboard

Thank God class was much better last night. The teacher implemented two new rules which are pretty basic and what you would think is common sense. Raise your hand before speaking and make your point in 1 minute or less. He only had to remind one of the other “teachers” one time to stick to the rules. However, when we were going over a group assignment one of the extra “teachers” took that as an opportunity for an unwarranted debate. My real teacher did a great job of shutting that down especially since that was not the purpose of the group assignment. Please Lord will you continue to bring order to the class and humble each of us as students.

We had a midterm and guess what your girl got. I had 23 out of 25 questions right on the midterm! That’s great right? How about we were told that it won’t count towards our grade????? I’ll just look at it like this way, now we know his testing style which can help us study for the final exam. All and all I’m still happy to be digging deeper into the word of God and proud to be a student in a classroom again.

I had a million thoughts #14

If one of the other sperm had been a little bit faster
you wouldn't be you and I wouldn't be me
