Happy Birthday! Be Lifted!

Yippee! Be Lifted turned two years old!

When I started my blog I wanted to be true to myself as well as inspire others. In two years I have done so many things wrote poems, talked about marriage, music and most importantly God.

Earlier I had one of my facebook friends message me and tell me to not allow anyone to place me in a box. Which is why I started a blog in the first place on social media it’s hard to express yourself without any drama happening. I have total freedom here on my blog and I love it.

I am excited about the future of my blog because there is more to come. Looking forward to many more years here on Be Lifted.


On This Day

First off, Happy Valentine’s Day to all! I pray and hope that everyone is enjoying their day, their way.

Facebook has something called “On this day” where people are able to look back and reflect on what they posted the prior years. On this Valentine’s day be happy for others and if you are attached be thankful for the loved one that you have.

I have seen some people who say that they are ready for this day to be over, I guess it’s a reminder that they are single. I think that some single people have to learn how to be happy for others. What’s the difference in seeing a person get a job promotion and a person who are in a happily committed relationship? A blessing is a blessing. It’s important that we are careful about how we express ourselves about certain things because it’s a reflection of who we are deep down inside.

Every day reflect on what occurred in your past relationships if you are single because you won’t be single forever. You want to make amends with the pain that may still be affecting you. Why else would you hate this day?

A person should never feel bad about being single. It’s best to be with the right one than the wrong one. It’s best to heal from past hurt than to get involved with someone and hurt them in some way. Hurt people, hurt others. Heal people, heal others. When we are healed we can then go on and have a healthy loving relationship.

So on this Valintine’s day look at it in a positive way because if you can do that it’s a sign that you have healed from whatever it that hurt you.

I Love The Word

The Word of God is absolutely powerful. I’m not a preacher or teacher I’m Tameeka. I discuss things on my blog that’s important to me still nothing is more important than my relationship with God. God gave us the Word as a guide to help us with our everyday life. There are so many scriptures that I love. Keeping my faith strong is what I work hard at every day man can’t do nothing without God. My walk with God has matured tremendously I look at bad situations with an understanding everything happens for a reason. Having the faith like Job and David is what I want I would so love that.

I don’t treat God like a spare tire using Him only during the time of hardships. I love God so much and I know that I need Him. It’s true that what we talk about the most is where our hearts lie some people think that money is so important but that’s a fool’s mentality. Putting one’s faith in themselves and material things will get them no way fast. It’s important to remain humble always. There have been so many ups and downs in my life no matter what I don’t want to lose sight of God. He’s already working on my behalf now let’s think about something when things are bad exactly how bad are they? Example the loss of a job it may seem bad a first but something better comes along eventually. One thing had to be lost in order to gain better. I guess I always look on the bright side and that comes from having God in my life. No matter what happens I know that everything will be alright. God has us in the Palm of His Hands. Tough times don’t last tough people do. I love You Christ Jesus and thank You for loving me.

Now that I have gotten my praise on here’s one of my favorite scriptures:

1 Timothy 4:4-5

 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

God is so good isn’t He!! Have a very bless day.

If It’s Real

If it’s real

You know the deal

You know exactly

How your love one feels

If it’s real

There’s no ifs, ands or buts

There’s trust

Things are consistent

There’s no room for questions

If it’s real

You see the relationship

As a blessing

Even through the ups and downs

Because there will be some

But one thing that

Should never be

And that’s the notion

Of whether a relationship is real

Woot Woot!!

My My My Time has flown by. September 6th will make it six months since I have started my blog. I am pretty proud of everything that I have accomplished and there will be more much more. So far I stuck by what I have planned to do I’ve shared my love for Christ, my love for my sons, poetry, music, the Dallas Cowboys, made podcasts the list just goes on. I enjoy writing and I enjoy the freedom of expressing myself. I don’t know about anyone else but when I can’t express myself freely I feel like I’m suffocating. I have always been a strong supporter of people loving others according to God’s will of course. Interracial dating to me is a beautiful thing and I truly believe that God has someone special for us all. As I have shared I have always been attracted to white men for longs as I can remember. Growing up I was taught that that one person isn’t for everyone but that there is somebody for everybody. My mother only concerns was for me to be happy. She didn’t want to see me get hurt. A person can get hurt regardless of the color of their skin. While I always say that love has no color I simply cannot deny my attraction to white men. Recently I’ve become bold about how I feel and I am not alone. There are many black women who are dating and marrying outside of their race. Time are changing and people are loving whomever they choose to. Anyway in the future I do plan on staying on course as well as discussing a lot more things. Here’s to six more months!!! Woot to the Woot! Woot Woot!!

Make It A Great Day

I once had a person tell me that I am very optimistic that was a awesome compliment. While I am very optimistic person it’s not all of my doing but God’s navigation. My relationship with Christ is everything. How we think controls the direction we go. Everyone has experienced a bad day before and it begins with one bad situation. We have all been guilty of saying I know that it’s going to be a bad day based off of a bad start. Remember the book that we read growing up called  Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, published in 1972, it was an ALA Notable Children’s Book written by Judith Viorst. Alexander keep saying I knew it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day we can literally speak things in to our lives soooooo let’s choose to speak life. Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

I know that we all have experienced some bad things but you know what those things are over. And we definitely show never look around at what other people have or are an compare. We should always look at another people’s lives as an inspiration and that’s all. In life at times we are up and we are down but the world keeps spinning. Situations doesn’t control who we are in Christ. God has an amazing life for us all and it consists of different kinds of days. So let’s live our lives with the mindset of making everyday our best day.

Biology Class

Growing up math and science were my favorite subjects. Though the two are different math is used in science like Chemistry. I’m super excited about my upcoming class it’s Biology Nutritional science!!! I so can not wait to begin I love how God already put me in the mindset about clean eating. Eating clean keeps us healthy a huge part of staying on track is what we eat like 70% the other percentage is exercising. I love walking and working out!!! Being at a healthy isn’t just about looking good but feeling good and living longer. Let’s be honest there aren’t many people who are obese living well up into their 60s, 70s and 80s. It’s all about honesty being over 200 pounds in not good. Our culture definitely has a lot to do with the way that we eat. But God is the guide in my life and yes I want Him in control of how much that I eat. Years ago I was an emotional eater whenever I got stressed I would eat it’s not good at all. Overeating is a very slippery slope that’s hard to walk back up on but it is possible. I want to live for a very long time. It’s important for me to watch my sons get older. It’s a beautiful thing seeing families with multiple generations. So ready for more additional steps on this amazing journey!
