Stay Tuned For Today’s BBWN Audio Message From Natasha

Hi Breaking Bread Family!

I hope that you’re having a super awesome day. I haven’t done an audio message in awhile. A few weeks ago I had been under the weather and my voice was strained, so I chose to heal and not torture you with my raspiness [*smile*].

In a few minutes I will be posting my message and it will include an audio version, that has considerably more content than the written message. I hope that if you have time today, you will pause for a few moments to read and listen. I look forward to receiving your feedback. Thanking you in advance!

Love your sister in Christ,

Natasha

Took a Much-Needed Break and Now I’m Back

Happy Monday!

I hope that my Breaking Bread family is having a super awesome day and that you’re walking around with a smile on your face even if your life reflects what should be a frown. Trust and believe me when I say that the past six months have felt like hell on Earth for me, but I know that I can’t waste too many days with a frown on my face, because that would mean that God was losing the battle and wasn’t capable of better. It would also mean that I’m not grateful for the daily blessings that He bestows upon me knowing that I don’t deserve them and haven’t earned them—it’s just His loving grace!

I took a couple of weeks to clear my mind, deal with some personal issues, pray, reflect, and listen. Who was I listening to? God. I won’t lie, the enemy sure did have my ear more times than I care to admit. But as always, our Father-Mother always prevails.

So I’m back in the saddle. A post will be coming your way momentarily. I’m also pleased to say that I have an update…

This weekend I dedicated time to work on my book. I hit a wall awhile back because I couldn’t think and see clearly with all of the things that were taking place in my life at the exact same time. But this weekend left me with a great opportunity to sit down and let my heart guide me to where I need to be, and where you the reader would like to see me go with my writing. This is a scary process. Blogging is easy. Writing a book that you think people will want to read and share, and pay for—now that’s a mountain to climb. I’ve been encouraged to keep pressing forward and to remember the nostalgic phrase, “if you build it they will come“. I have to believe that when I do this people will want to read it and share it with others. I can’t keep struggling with God and trying to tell Him how to use me. I have to let go of the steering wheel and let Him steer and be the Captain.

I will keep you updated on my progress. If there is something that you would like to experience from this or any of my future books (yes, I’m speaking that into existence), please don’t hesitate to contact me and share your ideas and requests. Maybe just maybe I can make it happen. Anything is possible when you let God do the steering!

Love your sister in Christ,

Natasha

Saturday Recap: Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 6/2/14 to 6/6/14

Happy Saturday family!

This week was rough for me personally. Walter W. Jackson II, a friend and colleague passed away last Saturday. He was one of my husband’s employees and was a true reflection of God’s Light. He will be forever missed, but instead of sorrow we will honor him and his legacy through our work in underserved communities, and by coming together as a village for his three children. Walter’s sudden passing at the young age of 46 serves as a reminder that we all must cherish and take full advantage of every minute of every day. Walter spent his last day with his children, and passed away while walking his dog.

Live your life fully.

I posted messages this week that helped me through this troubling experience. If you missed any of this week’s messages or you want to go back and re-read any of them, here’s your opportunity.
