or should I say “Bless Him”! My name is Mhykeisha George. My family & friends call me Mhykee (Mikey). I’ve been married for eight years to the most awesome guy on the planet, Trev George. We have two beautiful children, Ava Sky & Denim Dash. I’m a Nurse Practitioner but I have always enjoyed the art of reading, expressive writing, and visual creating.
I created this blog to give my readers a glimpse of my spiritual journey by sharing the things I’ve learned about God. I’m not here to share and quote scriptures but to give the methods I’ve used to apply his word to my life. Listen! It was not always easy, but I decided to try God! I was once a fighter, full time wine-o, fornicator, dressed lasciviously, and would curse at the drop of a dime. I was bitter, unforgiving, selfish, and materialistic, angry, prideful, and stubborn! My friends and family still said I was a good person, but I knew I was lacking something. I understood that I wasn’t living to my full potential despite being a registered nurse. Fast forward six year to now, I no longer, drink, smoke, curse (not even when I bump my toe). I am becoming selfless, forgiving, content with dressing modestly, and seeking to obtain the things of God.
How did this drastic change happen? Through receiving God’s holy spirit and being obedient to the words written in the Bible! Oh yes, there was a time in my life that I chose to not believe in God. I encountered some pretty tragic events in my life & it was easier to believe that he didn’t exist. Why was it easier? Because if God loved me like the Bible said he did, why would he let such great afflictions come upon me? It seemed too fictional. I was in college, I had no children, a great relationship, many friends, and traveling all over. Yet, when I lay in bed at night, I would think to myself “Is this as good as it gets”? There was a void in my life that was beginning to consume me. I was longing for something and didn’t quite know what it was. I would say
God, if there is a God, can you help me
I prayed for sign and evidence. I prayed to have my own experience that nobody could take away from me! “If you’re real, I need to know”.
I was raised in church and all my life I had been told that I was saved. I went to church on Sunday’s, prayed all the time especially before bed. “But how was I really saved”? I did everything I wanted, when I wanted, and how I wanted with no reverence to God about the decisions I made. If I was saved, what was I saved from?
My best friend, Brandee said these very words to me one night as we were getting dressed to go to the club. “Girl you are not saved”! I was so offended that she would say this to me, yet I knew it was true. In my heart I knew that whatever being saved really was, I was not! She invited me to church at Refuge Temple Ministries and the Apostle Wendell Archie ministered things in the bible I had never heard. Not only did he preach the undiluted word of God, he ministered my life! I felt someone told him everything I ever did, was doing, and planned to do that was out of the will of God. I heard God’s voice that day. His word resonanted with me and there was a piece of my void filled.
This was it! I was lacking: God’s word, the holy spirit, and a real relationship with my Creator!
Now here we are! 2020. I’ve been applying the words written in the bible. I am living a life I never thought existed. If I can be honest, I never wanted to live it. Living for God seemed boring. I could not have been more wrong. That’s the trick of it all, I guess. If we try to analyze everything about God from a natural state of mind rather than spiritual, he won’t make sense. All I could wrap my head around at that time was there was a long list of things God didn’t want me to do. Oh, but if you get a real taste of his mercy, longsuffering, spiritual and natural benefits, you will never want to go back to the you before God. I experienced God for myself, not just that day in church. That day was only the beginning of it all. As I grew in his word, the encounters became more and more powerful. There’s no way I can describe what I have experienced, but what I can say is that it has been powerful enough to keep me from going back to old habits, relationships, & former bondages.
A person can stop bad habits for a while and then they start them back. Even more venomous are the mind battles we may encounter on a day to day basis. God has the remedy. On your own you can do nothing, but with God all things are truly possible (spiritually & naturally).
I was taught that if I repeat a few words and believe I was saved, then it was done. I had a one way ticket to Heaven by repeating some words. Even as a child, this process didn’t make sense. If the entire world repeats this, is the entire world really going to Heaven? It seemed too easy. I mean, if I say I want to be a nurse and believe that I am a nurse, am I qualified to work as a nurse right then at that moment that I believe? Absolutely not. I can believe and as evidence that I really believe, I’ll begin studying the profession and meeting the requirements to eventually become a nurse. God’s word requires a changed life; you must become a new person. You must die to wicked, worldly behavior by applying all of his word to your life. Am I infalliable? No, but I have been perfected in many areas.
My prayer is to encourage others to dig deeper in their relationship with our Creator. I have lived both lives (not saved & saved). This is the best decision I’ve ever made. I want the same testimony as Jesus, “He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father”.
The end goal is to be a living, walking, written epistle known and read by all men (through the life I live).
Sit back, grab a cup of coffee, play a Cello instrumental, and enjoy.
