Sunday Morning Meditation


my favorite things to do on a sunday is eat, go to church and reflect...its my mediation day! I like to zone out, chill out, and focus on me. I think its good if we all take time for ourselves...the "me" time is something everyone needs. I like to go for a walk on the beach on sundays, by myself. maybe its because I'm single again or that I don't have a lot of friends, but walking by myself on the beach has helped me connect to God in a different way than church. I love church, I love hearing the word of God in the Gospels but when I'm walking on the beach, surrounded by everything God created, it just really broadens my mind.

the world is bigger than the latest makeup palette, the world is bigger than you and your significant other, the world is bigger than anything. bummed about your job? stressed out over finances? unhappy in a relationship? I advise you all to get on your knees and pray. Believe in SOMETHING. as I look out onto the ocean, I can't imagine how anyone thinks God does NOT exist. how did these beautiful waves come to be? How did these rocks and mountains form so majestically? How did I even get here? even scientists will tell you, science can not be complete without faith.

I think I'm getting too deep even inside my own head...

I guess the point of this blog is to encourage you all to reflect on what matters in life. I prayed three times today already just searching for direction, purpose, and a path. I want to do more, I want to be better. I reflect on this past week. Alot has happened in my life this past week. I'm dealing with a few stalking situations, had to get extra security which makes me feel like I'm in a prison a little, mending a broken heart, missing my family, and considering a new job...its a bit overwhelming to be honest...but I know I will get through it all because I've never NOT gotten through tough times.

think about it.....what are some of the toughest times you've gone through in life??? are you still here today? are you stronger because of it? are you more connected to God as a result of it???

I know I say yes. there were times in my life as a teenager, where I thought NOTHING IS EVER GOING TO GET BETTER, and even when I thought negative, God did a positive for me and pulled me through. He has pulled me through alot, and thankfully for me, and all of us, He is not going anywhere.....

even though I don't see the footprints in the sand next to me...I can feel Jesus walking on the beach with me. it just sends rays of happiness through my body.

I love you all and I hope you take time to reflect on the week, prepare for the upcoming days, and give thanks to God.

please don't forget to thank God because he didn't forget to wake you up this morning.

stay blessed

  2. Trisha, this is awesome. I'm filled with so much joy just reading about the beauty you're finding in God. It is such an awe-filling experience when you truly sit back, shut up, and let God speak. "The heavens declare His majesty, the Earth is filled with His glory." That verse rings so true. I think we often turn our backs on Him when things are going our way, but when we hit struggles we realize we can't do ANYTHING on our own. I am so guilty of this. Continue to seek Him, Trish. You are SO right when you say it enables us to further connect with Christ - it does! Keep your head up girl. You are beautiful, talented, and intelligent and don't let this world's skewed view of beauty influence you. God is working through you, girl! Let me end on two of my favorite verses and let them be your encouragement :) Psalm 45:11 says "the King is enthralled by your beauty. Honor Him, for He is your Lord." And Psalm 138:8 reminds us that we have purpose on this Earth! "The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands." I've only posted one blog on my account but I really do think you would enjoy reading it. And I think it would offer the perfect encouragement that you are needing in this time that you are going through. It's a great reminder of God's beautiful grace. I hope you'll take time to read it and possibly let me know your after thoughts. Stay strong, girl! I love watching your youtube videos and checkin' out your blogs. We have so much in common even though we are so different :) Here's my blog: faithfullyunfiltered.wordpress.com

    xoxo, Taylor

  4. wow. thank you so much becky, jordan and taylor!!! taylor, I'm definitely going to start following your faith based blog...I truly appreciate all of you'alls support!!! we all need to support each other in this journey we are on called life...we all struggle, we all have success, I appreciate all encouragement.

    and taylor, once again, great verses, I will admit, I don't study the bible on a regular basis. as a Catholic, I do read alot of Gospels but to me, its all the same purpose, to LOVE and HONOR God.

    the fact that you ladies took the time to write your thoughts and words of encouragement to me, means everything. love you from the bottom of my heat.

  6. This has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but i have been watching your videos for years and you still seem to stay positive after all the crap that goes on with your youtube, instagram, etc. I am older than you and don't think i will ever be as confident as you! Keep workin' it girl.
