True Story!

A few years ago I was getting these really insane water bills. I mean HIGH! So I decided to dig some wells in my yard to have water for my landscape. I live alone, so I know it had to be from watering the grass. So I hired a company to come out and dig these wells. The foreman and I walked all around my yard and as we were walking he was putting down flags. I asked what the flags were for. He said, "The flags represent good places to dig for water." I asked, "Why do you have so many flags?" He said, "I'm not sure if any of these places will produce water." I said, "Hold up, you mean if you dig all these spots and don't hit water I still have to pay you?" He said, "Yes, that's how it goes." I said, "Ok, fine." Needless to say, he dug three wells and never hit water. I said, "Just stop."

I got a few more extreme water bills and called him back. He said, "Are you sure?" I said, "Yes, keep drilling until you hit water." The next well he dug he was down 500 feet and still didn't hit any water. He asked if I wanted him to stop. I said, "Go deeper." He dug down another 200 feet and still nothing. I said, "Go deeper." He drilled another 200 feet and he hit rock. I said, "Blast it, cut it, do whatever you have to do but keep digging." After fighting the rock and breaking his drill and getting a new one we got a little deeper. He said, "We are at 1,200 feet, why do you want me to keep going?" I said, "Cause I'm tired of these water bills and I'm going to do something about it." He said, "But this is really deep." I asked him if he had hit water yet. He said "no," so I told him to go deeper. "But you don't understand," he said. "We don't usually drill this deep, this is going to be expensive." I told him that, "Sometimes you have to go deeper to get what you are after, no matter what the cost." He started the machine and went down another four inches and hit a river of water. Just a few inches separated me from getting my breakthrough. That was five years ago and that well has never run dry.

In 2013 I want you to apply that to your life in all ways. Sometimes you will spend time on a thing and it will produce no water. Don't be afraid to move on to another spot. YOU CAN'T HAVE FEAR. I don't care how much time you put into it. If the well is dry MOVE ON! Nothing lives where there is no living water. Be it a relationship, a job, a business, don't be afraid to move to another spot.

Now, on the other hand, if you are digging your well and you are sure that it is not only where you want to be but where God wants you to be, then keep digging in that same spot. Don't stop digging until you hit a river of blessings. Don't stop praying until you live in the change you've been waiting for. Don't stop pushing until you deliver your breakthrough. Yes, it will get difficult. Yes, you may hit rock. Yes, there will be a cost. But when you get to what God is trying to get you to, YOU WILL RECOVER IT ALL!  One of my favorite scriptures says that. "PURSUE AND YOU SHALL RECOVER IT ALL!"

Some people give up when they are only inches away!!

Happy New Year.

DDDDIIGGGGGG! People DIG!!!

    So, I asked Tai, "How would a girl know if u like her or not?" His reply was, "if I tell her!" I'm kinda looking like okay! Then he says, "just cause I do something for her don't mean I like her! I could give anybody something; so that doesn't mean I like them! I have to tell her!" :-) So, that's what my 17 yr old son, soon to he a man told me, his mother. LoL!!! :-) Do keep in mind, Tai is like yourself when you were young. He ain't even trying to respond to everything somebody ask & or say to him. Only the Lord knows what he being thinking in his head. D'Andre that's a different story, altogether! If anybody ask D'Andre something, they gotta be ready for him to speak his mind. Period! The thing that's his gift is what draws attention to him when he opens his mouth & its the very thing that sometimes get him in trouble, too. I haven't had any phone calls on D'Andre here lately. Thank the Lord for that! I done had enough from 3-11 yrs old to last a lifetime. Bless his heart! And if it wasn't for you & God & Paulette lol, I would've been hurt this boy! Thank God for Jesus Christ! Yes, Lord! And Amen. D'Andre was suppose to be here, for sure. I had 1 abortion Tyler, it was a little before D'Andre was born & yes, it was by his father. At that time, I wasn't ready for another child. Yes, it was a boy, too! So, 1 yr later & I'm pregnant again! :-) I couldn't do what I had already done. For 1, I cried & prayed & asked God to forgive me & I wouldn't do it again. Soooo now I'm pregnant with D'Andre!!!! His father gave me the money to get another abortion. I didn't do it! I couldn't do it! Tiff & Ted told me some yrs back they feel I spoiled D'Andre, meaning show him favor. What didn't know us what I knew all along! He was definitely suppose to be here. I really didn't spoil D'Andre, though. Tai got much more time & attention from me & with me, along with some many others. Tiff said, she felt that way because she felt I loved his daddy. I heard what she said. Keep in mind, this is something Tiff was telling me while her & I was just having a conversation. And also, she was informing me that she had told Ted this about me in their private time of discussion. I listened & it was good to see how she thought of the matter. Keep in mind, Tai was just like Al & Paulette's 7th child. So, Tiff was like his big sister, being she is Paulette's oldest child. It was all in Love! :-) ok, talk to u in a lil bit. I hope that wasn't too much information for you! You can handle it, T! I really & truly believe so. :-) I wanna hear what you have to say Tyler. I trust you for some odd reason or another. But I do. :-) Let's talk! Can we talk! May we take some time out to talk with one another, you & I Tyler? Thanks! Oh, keep in mind, I'm so over crying about any of this, right here. :-) Hello!

    Sir, when I first read this I was not able to stop the tears from running down my face. At first it just sounded like you were sharing a situation you experienced. To my surprised like a parable I was totally taken of balance when I finally understood where you were going with this. SIR it was like here I am feeling so down in the pits ready to give up on my dreams. The promise God gave me and about to get a regular job, surrounded by love one who did not or could not see my battle. The very day that I made up my mind to just walk away I read this. At that very moment I was reminded that my God is a God that never gives up on us, we give up on ourselves. Thank you sir for believing in me and reminding me of what is important. That His word is planted deep within me so I must just keep digging until I reach it. You speak between your word. POWERFUL man of God. God bless and thank you for everything you give so freely to me and many. Take care and be safe. Love you with the love of God :)
