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 …

The Journey to Motherhood

I know the topic of this post seems very broad, yet so simple. Truth be told, it is one of the hardest things I feel that I have ever been entrusted to do.  Over the next three or four posts, I will be blogging about my four pregnancies and the effects each of them had on me.  


So here goes: I became pregnant with my first son at the beginning of 2009. It was kinda sorta a planned pregnancy, as we desired to become pregnant but didn't think it would happen so quickly after making the decision to start trying.  Of course, being that this was our first pregnancy, we were very cautious about a lot of things and for me that also included working out.  I believe I was afraid that if I did too much, something would happen to the baby, as I was not well educated on the benefits of working out, let alone working out during pregnancy.  I was so used to eating everything that I wanted without necessarily putting on noticeable weight that I took that same mentality/approach during this pregna…

It's In Your Blood

As I became a mother to more than one child, I started to feel overwhelmed.  I felt like I was losing control and had no plan of action on how to balance and make everything happen.  I remember one day crying out to some of my family members, one in which was my grandmother.  I remember her simply saying, "You can do this, Samarra! It's in your blood." She began to talk with me about her life as a mother of four and how she managed to handle things.  She admitted that it was a struggle considering she wasn't saved at the time but she found strength to do what she needed to do as a mother.  I was reminded of this as I was driving home from a workout and listening to a spiritual message on YouTube that had nothing to do with what God was downloading in my spirit.  He reminded me of that simple conversation with my grandmother.  While she was reminding me of what I was made up of from a physical perspective,  God was speaking to me from a spiritual perspective. He was s…
