About

I'm a wife, mommy, friend, and most importantly a follower of Jesus. I would love to share my life with you.

IT"S ABOUT TO GET REAL PEOPLE!

My life up until I was 23, was lived for myself my family my friends and whatever man showed me attention at the time. I believed that I was saved, but it was only because I held to a moral code and felt guilty and shameful when I failed at following that code. I knew I shouldn’t get drunk, do drugs, have sex outside of marriage, kill or hurt anyone, those kinds of things. I thought I was a relatively good person who struggled from time to time with "small" things.

Let me break it down even further:

IT"S ABOUT TO GET REAL PEOPLE!

My life up until I was 23, was lived for myself my family my friends and whatever man showed me attention at the time. I believed that I was saved, but it was only because I held to a moral code and felt guilty and shameful when I failed at following that code. I knew I shouldn’t get drunk, do drugs, have sex outside of marriage, kill or hurt anyone, those kinds of things. I thought I was a relatively good person who struggled from time to time with "small" things.

Let me break it down even further:
I genuinely knew that there was a God and that Jesus existed, but all i knew to do was strive my best to be just a good person. However, I still had a chasm within me, a void that was never full even though I continuously tried to fill it with whatever and whoever made me feel good.

The sin that I was in and struggled with was genuinely gripping. I was trapped. I had no hope. It wasn’t until I was at my lowest point physically, mentally, and emotionally that the Spirit of God took my heart and my soul and said,
“All this energy you are putting into these other things and all this love you give to these men, give it to me. Instead of writing love letters and giving gifts to men, write them to Me. I choose you Melissa and I desire your heart.”

I was on my knees with my face to the floor in awe of my Creator, who said,"I CHOOSE YOU."

At that point I began to literally write love letters to the Creator and my King. I still struggled with my previous sin, but I had hope now. I knew that I could be free because Jesus could do anything, after all, He chose me.

Fast forward to today and I am still a sinner. I am still fighting my pride, selfishness, anger, lust, and more ya'll!

HERE IS THE BEST PART....
But I have a God who has a hold on me like no other. My heart longs to please Christ. I am only worthy of the very breath that I breathe because I have a God who would send His son to die in my place for sins He knew I would commit and struggle with for the rest of my life. Praise God for who He is….Awesome, powerful, mighty, full of grace, and full of mercy.
