Yesterday's Girl, Today's Woman

Have you ever set back and asked yourself, why do I continue going through the same trials and tribulations over and over again? This has been a question I often ask myself on a daily basis.  I asked God, why do I continue committing the same offenses against you time after time?  God's response has always been, "because you continue to try and do things in your own strength and not mines." Recently, I have started to experience true victory because I finally began to allow God to walk me through some of the most difficult moments in my life.  As I continue on this path to freedom, I will be sharing with you the real Samarra Rogers. 

I believe that God has placed it upon my heart to start a blog, not just for my healing and restoration, but for someone else as well.  When the thought of writing a blog was dropped in my spirit, I immediately tried to dismiss it because I do not like writing and I do not like opening up and feeling vulnerable.  However, when the spirit of God speaks I must act and obey.  So here I am......

Initially, I was going to title my blog, "My Personal Journey to Total Freedom/Deliverance from Unforgiveness," but as I continued to seek God on whether or not this was something He really wanted me to do I felt that it should be called, "My Walk To Freedom."  The title will reflect not only my freedom from unforgiveness, but also other areas in my life that I have struggled or continue to struggle with.  I can tell that I have grown in my walk with Christ because never would I have thought I would be sitting on my couch blogging about things that I don't just share with any and everybody. Over the next few months to a year, I will be sharing with you my struggles, trials, tribulations, and most importantly, the process God is taking me through to experience total FREEDOM and VICTORY.  Well that explains my first blog title...Yesterday's Girl, Today's Woman....because only a woman could open up to the world and expose herself so that the next girl could receive total HEALING and VICTORY in her life!

  1. I'm glad you have allowed the Spirit of God to dwell in you Samarra! This is an awesome thing you're doing! I am also a work in progress...trying to overcome bitterness, spitefulness, and just MY ways period. I do feel God is working on me to mold and shape me to where he wants me to be! I'm surrounding myself around more positive people now. I'm grateful and thankful for my trials and tribulations because I'm just like you, I'm using what I have gone through to inspire someone else. Jesus said if your ways please me I will give you the desires of your heart. I encourage you to keep blogging, keep believing, interceeding, and continue doing whatever God has placed on your heart to do. He definitely is speaking to you and you know you can't run from God especially if he has called you ;-)

Staying Committed with No Strings Attached

It has been almost four years since my last post.  I know, shame on me.  However, this year I am making a commitment to be consistent with blogging, as I believe the Lord wants me to use this as an avenue to encourage people through my life experiences. So, I vow to stay and trust the process through this blog, as God leads me.  You guys can also hold me accountable, especially if it has been over a month since you have read a post. So, with that being said, I felt lead to blog on this topic because it's one that I often struggle with (as if you couldn't tell...lol) 
There have been moments in my life where I wasn't fully committed to a task, spiritually or physically. It's been times where I have felt the Lord leading me to do certain things, and because of how I felt at the moment, I would either start the task and not fully commit to seeing it through or I wouldn't start the task at all.  Most times I allowed fear and pride to interfere with what I knew I needed …

What kind of heart is your seed falling on?

So during my devotion time I studied out of the book of Luke chapter 8 verses 9-15.   This  passage gave insight on the seed of God and described the different soil your seed has potential to fall upon.  It defined seed as being the word of God and it broke down and spoke on the four types of hearts (soil) the seed would fall upon.

The first described is the seed that falls on the road, which is when one hears the word, but no sooner then they hear the enemy comes and snatches it from them so they don't believe.  The next one is the seed that falls in the gravel, which happens when one is super enthusiastic about what they heard but the enthusiasm doesn't run very deep. It's only another fad and the moment there is trouble, it's gone.  Then there is the seed that falls on weeds which happens when one hears the word but then the seed is crowded out and nothing comes of it, so people go about their lives worrying about tomorrow, making money, and having fun.  Lastly,  th…

There Is Beauty In The Unveiling

What comes to mind when you think of being unveiled? Unveiled means to remove a veil or covering from or to make public.  Well, as I was removing the make up from my face yesterday after work, God said to me, "There is beauty in the unveiling." I took that to mean that there is beauty in my vulnerability, my imperfections, and those areas in my life that I don't view as so beautiful. The beauty is not necessarily found in the imperfection but in the fact that we need God to continuously perfect and heal us from those not so beautiful areas in our lives. 
So often we as people, especially us ladies, try to present ourselves to the world as well put together, without blemish or imperfection, so much so that we go before God the same way. We even go as far as trying to pray the most eloquent prayer and speak to him as if we are already perfect and have it all together.  I don't know why we think that the Lord wants His people to be perfect. If we were perfect we wouldn…
