Asking God

Have you ever wanted something so bad? You hoped for it and maybe even dreamed about it, only to not receive it?

 

Since we were kids, we were told we won’t get everything we want and “life’s not fair,” but that doesn’t change that you’re left feeling crushed, discouraged and even angry at God. You subconsiously check off yet another thing God didn’t come through for you for.

 

This piece is not for the Christian who is in the business of manipulating God for their wants. This piece is for the Christian that has already established: God isn’t a genie. This is for the Christian that knows God can do exceedingly abundantly all that we could ever ask for or think (Ephesians 3:20) but finds themselves questioning if He would really do so for them. This is for the Christian who trusts that God has plans of future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11), but they just have no idea where in the world it is or when in the world that plan will come.

How to Save Money on Clothes

I am queen of sales. I can find discounts like it’s nobody’s business. And I can wait on an item to hit clearance with the patience you can’t even fathom.

 

It’s funny because as much as I love clothes, I barely shop! When I do, the piece has to absolutely be worth it. My favorite places to shop easy online are ASOS and Missguided. And I never shop there without my UNiDAYS code.

Don’t Forget Your Smile

Lately, I haven’t had the strength to write. It’s actually taking me forever to write this post and it’s so unfamiliar since I typically zone in and can write anything.

 

I’ve been doing a lot…like, running around preparing my baby sister for prom (which she absolutely slayed). I’ve been doing my church duties, friend duties, daughter duties and all the while trying to juggle my retail job, remote job, website and relentless emotional and spiritual tests. Thankfully, my list includes fun stuff, such as driving up to Canada last week for a family wedding and flying down to Georgia for another the month before. Those getaways have been so needed because I’m obsessed with my family and it brings me joy to be around them.

 

However, I am still.going.through.

  • Never feel obligated to prove yourself to anyone. When you know who you are, that is MORE than enough ❤️
  • Throwback to last summer when I traveled to DC for the national Miss Black USA pageant! So honored to be crowned @missblacknewjersey18! I created a GoFundMe campaign called, “Tarah Takes Heart” in hopes to garner support to nationals, raise #strokeawareness and empower more girls through my platform! I’m super dedicated to not only talk about the physical ailments that plague the hearts of women but to cover all of the emotional. It’s imperative to take care of the very vessel that keeps us going, ladies! Please see the link in my bio for my GoFundMe story — hope you can support! ❤️
  • You know when you wait for the right moment to share something REALLY important? I’ve been planning to make this announcement for MONTHS now 😭. Life has been such a whirlwind and we’ve been seeing more and more of just how precious time is in this world. I’m realizing that there’s no such thing as a perfect moment. YOU have to create it for yourself. I have butterflies right now and that’s really rare for me but I finally am ready to let it out. Ladies and gents, I am your MISS BLACK NEW JERSEY 2018! 😭🙌🏾✨✨✨ — 
Please read up on my story on my #GoFundMe gofundme.com/tarah-takes-heart (link in bio) and more about the platform I have chosen to dedicate my reign to: stroke. My mom suffered from one in 2013, rocking our lives forever. But most importantly, her presence in my life has been the most life changing. It is because of her that I want to give back to the stroke community and raise awareness of the issues of the heart!!! Both emotionally and physically ❤️ Ya girl needs the funds doeee so go show majorrrr love to that gofundme and share button 😂 You can also donate through PayPal (PayPal.me/tarahlynn) and Venmo (TarahSaint).
