Thank You

 It was your mean words….

It was your turning your back on me when I needed you most…

It was your telling me that I would turn out just like my mother…

It was your beating me for no reason other than being BORN…

It was your burning my innocent 3 year old fingers on a gas stove…

It was your calling me ugly…

It was your calling me stupid…

It was your calling me B*tch as if it was my name…

It was your talking about me behind my back…

It was your telling me that I would never be anything…

It was your saying that there was no hope for me…

It was your turning your back on my daughter and living the life as if you have no children…

It was your pretending to be my best friend so that I let you in the way I’ve never let anyone in only for you to betray me…

It was your leaving me out & making sure to remind me every chance you got that I was not really apart of the family…

It was your turning your nose up at me because of my dark skin…

It was your selfishness when I loss the one person who was my EVERYTHING and all you could ask was “what did she leave ME??”

It was your telling me that you care nothing for me nor my daughter even though we are your blood…

It was your stealing from me…

It was your touching me in places you knew were forbidden but you were so HORNY & PERVERTED that all you cared about was getting yourself off, forget the fact that I was only a child!!

It was your not liking me for no reason…

It was your envy turned hate…

It was your judging me…

It was your wishing for my failure…

that ALMOST took me out!

anoint my head

Instead, I grew STRONGER… I worked HARDER…. I pushed FARTHER…. I became DETERMINED to prove all my naysayers wrong.

Most importantly, I ran away from the WORLD and into the arms of my Saviour never to look back. He wiped away my tears that I cried for so long… made me secure in my moments of insecurity. Gave me a sound mind when I should have been crazy. Helped me to love because He first loved me. Taught me to forgive by forgiving me. I have wanted for nothing; He has provided exceedingly and abundantly above all that I can ask or think. He’s favored me, had mercy on me, saved me, blessed me, anointed me, kept me…. elevated me

All in the presence of my Enemies

What if we had to EARN God’s Grace?

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus Romans 3:24

What if we had to earn God’s grace?
And He handed it to us in a measuring cup?
And we were only able to use how much we had saved up?

Suppose…. He put a limit
on the number of times we could be forgiven?

Instead of seventy times SEVEN,
He told us no more than ELEVEN!

And the only way to get to Heaven was to not sin at all….
like in Old Testament days when they only lived under the Law?

What if we had to DESERVE God’s love?
And we only received as much as we gave to our sisters and brothers?
And it was based on our works and how we treated others??

Can you imagine if we had to work for the Holy Spirit?

To seal, to heal, to strenghten and comfort us
To guide us
To abide in us
To renew us
To produce in us:

Love, Joy, Peace, Kindness, and Patience
Goodness, Gentleness, Self-control, and Faithfulness

If grace was based on our worth, we would never make it into the narrow gates
But aren’t you glad that God sent Jesus as our way of escape??

Escape from the enemy, escape from our own flesh
Escape from sin, escape from DEATH!

Don’t you find peace in knowing that Jesus came to bear all sin?
Bled and died on the cross and rose again!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten
So that our sins are not only forgiven they would be FORGOTTEN

Forgiveness is given to us freely each time that we ask
Our iniquities are no more, gone with the PAST!

God does not love us because we deserve it
It is not measured according to our performance or acts of kind service,

God’s unearned love is Bountiful, Eternal, Perfect, UNCHANGING
It is Sacrificial, Fulfilling, Purifying, AMAZING!

The Holy Spirit was sent to Intercede
For all those who believe,

To guide us,
To abide within us

To help, to teach,
To transform, to speak

To fill us, to reveal to us,
To use us, to produce in us:

Love, Joy, Peace, Kindness, and Patience
Goodness, Gentleness, Self-control and Faithfulness

His Grace is limitless, over-flowing, forever FREE
Undeserved, yet over SERVED
Reserved for YOU and ME 🙂

Love, Mizz K ♥

Curry chicken & potatoes over white Jazmine rice

Let me just say that I am NOTHING close to a chef lol…. There are some things that I just cannot cook no matter how hard I try. Can’t master everything, right? But, there are some dishes that I make very well & have had people tell me it was the best they ever had. One of the dishes that I make very well is curry chicken. There are so many different ways to make it but I found a way that is SUPER EASY & tastes just as good as the Jamaican spots I hit just for curry. So I decided to share the recipe. Here is what I use:

– Chicken parts (I love wings but u can cut up some breasts or thighs if u prefer)
-4 cloves of garlic
-1/2 onion
-4 tablespoons of Curry powder (whichever brand u prefer to use)
-1/2 red pepper
-1/2 green pepper
-fresh thyme
-4 white potatoes, peeled & cut up into pieces

First, I washed my chicken thoroughly; some people peel off the skin but I prefer not to. Once it’s clean, I sit my chicken to the side in a bowl; I should add that glass is better to use because the curry powder will stain a plastic bowl. If u like, add a little salt to the chicken; I add salt & seasoning salt (I put that on everything lol). Next, I chop up my onions, peppers, & garlic; I break up the thyme & I dump it all into the bowl with my chicken. I take 2 tablespoons of the curry powder & add it to my chicken as well. It is best to mix everything with your hands to ensure that u get all those ingredients mixed in well. Plastic gloves are ideal because the curry powder will certainly stain your finger nails. Once I mix all my ingredients into the chicken, I let it sit & marinate so the chicken can absorb the seasonings; I let it marinate over night but if you are cooking the same day let it sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
After it has been marinating over night, I’m ready to cook. I put my pan on the stove over med-high heat. I slice up a few more onions while Im waiting on the pan to heat up. Once my pan is hot, I add a little vegetable oil & the onions I have just sliced. I let them brown & then I add 2 more tablespoons of the curry powder. I stir the powder into the pot with the onions letting them both cook just for a few minutes before I add my chicken. Once I add my chicken, I let the chicken brown a little on both sides & finally I add about 2 cups of boiling water (just enough to cover the chicken) & I also add the potatoes. Once it’s all boiling, I reduce the heat, cover my pot, & let it all simmer until the potatoes are tender. This usually takes about 30 minutes. While that is simmering I sauté my cabbage & make a pan of jasmine rice. Tonight I made a pan of cornbread as well. Cornbread is my signature side; I make it with ALMOST everything!

Anyway, that is how I make my curry chicken & potatoes 😉
