HE IS HERE, HE HAS RISEN, HE IS ALIVE

Today, is Easter Sunday and I have a jammed packed agenda, before I even had my cup of coffee the Lord came to me in a still, soft voice and spoke with me saying, it is NOT by our Will but it is what HE wants…. As of late, my walk with GoD has gotten stronger and it is funny because I have been asked questions like, “How do you know HE even exists, why do you go to church after ALL you have been through, if GoD truly is here then why is there so much pain, suffering and violence around the world??”

I have tried to answer different questions but often share that HE gives us Free Will.. 

See friends, this morning when I felt HIM with me it made sense that if HIS Son Jesus couldn’t just NOT do what the Father wanted, then none of us are different…..When I am asked those aforementioned types of questions; I sit back and recall a time my own Faith had been shattered, I recall a time I started to NOT believe and when I sat in my quiet room and prayed directly and asked HIM to please let me know if HE was with me and furthermore, I asked HIM for HIS help as I couldn’t even believe on my own at that point!! HE showed up in my dark room and comforted me but HE also left me with an everlasting peace that I have had since….. Have I been through a lot in my L.I.F.E, yes I have but do I have a GoD whom will NEVER leave me NOR forsake me, yes I do have that too!!

If you do NOT remember anything in this post, please remember that ANYONE who gives their L.I.F.E to Christ will be #Blessed for Eternity….. How do I know, because I once was where you are today!! I once was on the fence, I once didn’t have anyone to speak to about how I was feeling and I once was a sinner and NOW I am saved by HIS grace..

If you have NOT received Jesus and feel the NEED to know HIM Better, say this prayer today: “Father, in your name I come. I desire to know you better, I am sorry for ALL I have done that has been against you and I ask you to come into my L.I.F.E today…. I ask in the name of your Resurrected Son Jesus that you heal me, deliver me, set me free, keep me, wrap your arms around me and Jesus I ask that you save me from my own selfishness, my issues, my sins, my bad habits and please just save me from myself….. I NEED you today and I LoVe You!! Thank you Jesus for Saving Me.. In your name I pray!!”

If you have said that prayer and meant it, know that you are Saved; now it is time for you to find those who are Saved, Sanctified and full of the Holy Ghost so you can learn and grow.. Last thing, alot of people who say they are saved are still battling with many issues so please be cautious out there….. If you NEED a friend, a prayer partner, someone to listen to you….. Feel free to write to me at: prayedforfreedom@gmail.com or connect with me via FB: AniYa A Period and I will help you though prayer of course but also connecting you with others, I will share churches that I know will be a blessing as well as share scriptures that I know will encourage and motivate you !!

May you ALL Be Blessed on this Amazing Day….. I feel chains are being broken and I will receive a Salvation Testimony very soon, I am praying for each of you and know that you are loved..

Your Sister in Christ,

AniYa A.

P.S. ‘Never Be Bound Again’ by Bishop Paul S. Morton is the song for you today!!

“The Man Curse” by Raqiyah Mays

Do you think you are cursed in your love life? Or have you had some strange issues happen in your family and you’ve never been the same since? Well, stop everything and read the following:

The time has come and it is an absolute pleasure and honor to write this blog about none other than Ms. Raqiyah Mays who is doing so much and it is a blessing to know her. In the following you will see photos of this Leader from her latest photo shoot where she was one of the women selected for The Limited’s “The NEW Look of Leadership” campaign but also you will learn more about her NEW book which is hitting the world wide web on November 16th and you can support her by buying her book at the following: themancurse.com, barnesandnoble.com, amazon, ibooks, and at Google play.

WHAT IS THE MAN CURSE?
The Man Curse is a self-help fiction novel that explores the phenomenon of generational curses and cycles in families as told through the story of Meena Butler, a professional woman working to break the man curse and become the first woman in her family to marry. Is she cursed? Or is it all in her head?

When Raqiyah and I first met, she had just spoken to a group of women at a Domestic Violence event (it was one of the most amazing ones I have ever been too, there will be another one in May, if you would like more info or to be connected as a vendor, sponsor, to just attend etc. let me know and I will put you in contact with organizers) and that is where I learned of “The Man Curse” as well as her being a Leader for the campaign she is apart of now! What I admire the most about Ms. Mays, who happens to be WBLS‬ 107.5 FM Radio Personality, an Author, Journalist, and an Activist, is her boldness to share what is on her heart as well as on her mind. Friends, I have read the first few pages of her book and I am here to let you know I cannot wait until I get my hands and eyes on the rest of the book which comes out tomorrow!

Shortly after we met, she asked me if I could share my story in a tv interview that we would both take part in, I agreed that it was time to let people know that my favorite cousin, Sandy Jeanty, was murdered by her fiance’ over a decade ago and the pain is still deep, I say that to say, what is so different about Raqiyah is she is helping so many heal. She has taken parts of her story and life and turned it into a piece of literature that reaches the soul! I, for one, have seen so much D.V in and around my younger years growing whether it was via my aunt whom was stabbed by her spouse or again when my cousin was murdered by someone whom was supposed to love her, marry her and live happily ever after with her! To be honest friends, I almost gave up on love and have ran away from many men as I believed that I would be hurt, demonized or even killed. Today, I am taking control back and saying that though there may have been a Man Curse surrounding me and my family, I, you, we can overcome and be happy in love with whomever God has for us.

I close by sharing that I am finally able to open up about some of these deep seated issues I have hidden for many many years, people like Ms. Mays shares these messages in her work because she knows people like me and you need to be freed from these invisible chains of oppression which bound us for way too long! Friends, if you are in a Domestic Violence situation, whether it is verbal, physical (this one is HUGE), emotional, monetary (sometimes your abuser will hold funding and monies from you as a way to hold you as a prisoner), spiritual and more it’s time to GET OUT. I am speaking from experience and I will never forget one of the last phrases I utilized when finally speaking up about losing my own cousin at the aforementioned event, “Remember fam, you are NOT the only ones whom are affected when you are in these abusive situations as you have cousins, aunties, grandparents, uncles and friends whom love you very much besides your children and parents.”

Be safe, love yourselves, reach out to those who love you, or seek help from abuse centers which the police stations near you can escort you too and turn this thing around! Don’t forget to check out the following for ways you can hear Raqiyah Mays speak and see her LIVE.

“There hasn’t been an author in 20 years, since Terry McMillan, to fully express the experience of black women in love and romance. I believe Raqiyah Mays can fill that void with The Man Curse.”
