“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’ve been blogging since 2010 (following the leading of The Holy Spirit). In 2015, “A Journal of Love” (my blog/VLOG) was revamped and repurposed to make a greater impact! God blessed the fruit of my hands and brought increase. The feedback that I have received thus far; a huge blessing, as well as a great source of encouragement to “keep it going!” Now on the verge of yet another shift | re-vamp, I am excited to see what God has in store for us Next! #NewBeginnings #NewLevels 

The Word of God says that we are, “fearfully and wonderfully made!”  This Blog/VLOGs reflect the uniqueness that is Me/Marvlun Reed! #ABeautifulWorkInProcess  I am the one who looked forward to the start of school every year and still do! #LifeLongLearner 

“We don’t stop dreaming and exploring because we grow old. We grow old because we stop dreaming and exploring.”  #NeverStopDreaming #NeverStopExploring 

What you will find within these pages; Positive, Encouraging & Inspirational Quotes, Golden Nuggets & Motivation (based in the Word of God). On this journey, we encounter stop signs, road blocks, breakdowns etc. In these times we need some sort of direction and motivation to help propel us to keep moving forward, and to not give up.

For example a quote from the sermon last Sunday; ” don’t let your mess ups hold you back. Turn them to God and see how He turns them into your message!” #goldennugget #goodstuff

I’ve been there, feeling discouraged, wanting to give up & feeling like the weight of the world was on my shoulders… The message, “God Is For You (Romans 8:28)” & the realization That “God is a Good God,” and what that meant ( God’s Best | God’s Abundance | God’s Loving Kindness | God’s Favor | & God’s Prosperity) had a significant impact on my life!

When those you thought would be there for you are not, remember this, “God, He Is For You”  & you can trust Him! Be encouraged by that fact! #YourBestDaysAreNotBehindYou #YourBestDaysAreAhead 

We all are blessed with a unique and/or unusual set of skills and designed with a specific purpose by our Creator. Embrace that! Embrace the Uniqueness That Is You! No one can do you, like you. “Authenticity starts with you. It starts in your heart!” The World is in need of what you have to offer. #StayFocused 

Let’s end it with this quote from a “not so famous fighter (jk): “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that! I’m always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You’re my son and you’re my blood. You’re the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life.”

Thank you in advance for your patience. It’s been real busy around here lately, but I believe that God is up to something Big! #staytuned  “Any enterprise is built by wise planning, becomes strong through common sense, and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast of the facts.” Proverbs 24:3-4 Living Bible (TLB) #EmbracingTheNew

I love you guys, and can’t wait to share what God has placed on my heart! Until that time, Be-You-TiFul (smile)
