Is Traditional Media Dying?

Twitter- Facebook-Myspace- about 10 years ago these were all foreign terms to most people. Now these are apart of our everyday life. Newspapers, Magazines, paper coupons, radio stations are slowly disappearing. We are seeing more and more digital media being displayed everyday.

While the older generation still uses methods of traditional media, they are still rapidly progressing and learning new things.

I look forward this blogging more this semester.

15 Signs You’re With A Good Man

JamesMSama.com

When it comes to dating and relationships, I often find myself wondering how certain people end up with others. Wondering why they don’t walk away if they don’t get what they deserve and hoping that they truly appreciate their teammate if they are getting what they deserve.

I think a big part of the problem blurring this line is that many people aren’t even quite sure what a healthy relationship looks like these days or how a ‘good man’ (or woman) should act towards their partner. To help clarify, I have put together this list of how a good man should act while in a relationship.

A good man never lets you forget how much he loves you.

I cannot tell you how many conversations I have had with women who tell me that there is no affection in their relationship. The man in their life does not make them feel…

Relationships.

We all long to love someone. We all long to be loved by someone. Its in our human nature to love and want to feel love returned to us.

As for me .. I have always been the type of girl growing up who felt I NEEDED a boyfriend. I would float around nonchalantly having crushes on guys, who deep down inside I KNEW wasn’t for me. The cycle continued through high school but during college the relationships that I encountered had a deeper impact on my life than the ones I had in middle and high school years.

I spent my sophomore, freshman, and junior of college year, running behind relationships that gave me nothing to offer. While my friends were out enjoying college. I was stuck in a room waiting for a text message from a guy back home. Relationships begin to take a tole on you if you are in one and you are not ready. My parents warned me on the dangers I faced of dating. Parents have so much more wisdom and knowledge over us but we sometimes disregard what they say and how they feel like I did on how they felt. I wanted to prove everybody wrong and make my relationships work.

Not only would I seclude myself from the world. I begin to want to do everything to make my boyfriend happy. I would go out of my way to do ANY and Everything for him. I would come home every other weekend just to see him. My grades begin to slip because I was giving my attention to things that I had no business giving them to. 

God is a jealous God he does not want you to give no earthly thing more attention than we give him because nothing can love us as he has. My family and friends all begin to warn me on the dangers I had encountered, but I wouldn’t listen. Soon I found myself in a great big ball of MESS. He begin to text and call other girls, my family was constantly mad at me for the time I was spending with him, I lost friends, I had no idea my world was crashing down. 

After a while I lost that relationship. I spent almost two years running back to him, begging, pleading, wanting him to give me that love that I thought I wanted. He treated me like CRAP, but I was too blind and in love to actually see it. I knew deep down in my heart that it didn’t feel right and that I needed to let go but something in me wouldn’t let me.  I never got that relationship back, he used me and talk down on me and after all that crying he still chose someone else over me. Someone who my  parents, family, and friends warned me about that he was seeing and I foolishly said “oh its nothing” “they’re just friends”. psshhh right.

 

See the thing about relationships is : IT MUST BE BLESSED BY GOD. God is the creator of all things. God should be involved in whatever you do. If you feel like you need advice or something is not right then go to GOD. Your heart must be fixed by God before you can give it to any man or woman or it will NOT WORK. He wants you to get to know him first. He wants to love you and be there for you. No man or woman can ever love you the way GOD LOVES YOU. IN due time everything will come to you when you are READY. If GOD has not set you up with a mate yet, then it is not your time. He longs for your heart and he wants to use you. He can’t use you if you’re letting someone else use you. Not only with relationships but with friendships as well. He is there for you. Go to God. If I had of listened to my gut intsinct and the guidance of people who wanted best for me, all those bad things that happended, all the depression, all the sadness could have been avoided if I would HAVE LISTENED. I would much rather have a relationship that GOD approves of than one that GOD does not. He want all of you entirely. 

When I found God, I felt better about myself. I now know that I don’t need a guy to feel loved. When God is ready for that special person, he will let me know but he will also give me CONFIRMATION. I don’t want it unless it has been confirmed by God.

“Do The Right Thing” for the Love of JESUS CHRIST

Image

So recently I became obsessed with JESUS CHRISTIt’s not that I haven’t always had this love for GOD and I knew where my help came from but it was at this very moment one day where I just really begin to KNOW JESUS.

I just realized one day that I was tired of the same ole stuff. Day in and day out, month after month, year after year. After heartache and troubles and misery, I just feel tired. My soul felt tired, I was miserable. I could feel the weight of the world on my shoulders. After I got over one problem here comes another problem. I needed comfort. I would run to my friends, twitter, or Instagram for advice but nothing gave me the answer I NEEDED. I would seek what I wanted to hear but very sedomly would I allow myself to get the advice I NEEDED to hear. I would tell all my business to those “friends” of mine and they would tell me what I wanted to hear while running to tell my business as well. So after reading a blog from HEATHER LINDSEY one day it struck me that maybe GOD was the answer.

I went into my bathroom and laid all my problems cares and concerns at the feet of Jesus. I stayed there for almost an hour and I just cried and hollered and told him of all my problems. I secluded myself where I felt like I was alone with Jesus, away from noise, distractions, and my roommates. Sometimes in order for us to hear God we have to get quiet and listen. When you’re talking to GOD you have to REALLY CONCENTRATE and FEEL HIM. He’s there. I set the mood with peaceful music. I called on the name of Jesus and GOD CAME. I attend a Holiness Pentecostal Church. I’m use to seeing the shouting, the dancing, the clapping,  but I never really received the holy spirit. Well, the day that I went into the bathroom and called on God.. I FELT IT. I’m not aware of HOW I praised him, what I said or what I did, but the feeling was overwhelming. It felt as if I couldn’t thank him enough. The only thing that could come out of my mouth was THANK YOU JESUS, my life flashed before my eyes as if it was movie over all the good things and bad things he brought me through. I can’t thank him enough. When I left that bathroom, I felt as if a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I felt renewed and cleansed. I slept that night with peace because I casted all the concerns I had at the feet of Jesus and I left them knowing that he would make everything alright.

Over the next couple of days, I begin to feel God tugging at my heart. I felt guilty because I had not spent time with God. See when you abandon GOD he longs for your heart, you are his child and he misses you. I had to go and pray again.

Through this journey I am on, I am learning that I HAVE to spend time with JESUS daily. I have to go to him everyday because I need him. If I can make time for all these worldly things then I can make time for JESUS. When you have Jesus in your life the HOLY SPIRIT speaks to you and guides you. A little voice will sometimes whisper in my ear and guide me on decisions I make. When I call a friend and I begin to gossip, the holy spirits quickly diverts my attention to speak on another subject. When I feel down, it whispers to me to pray. It’s all about doing the right thing. God Loves You and Wants you in his Life. I’m so glad that I found him and I pray I won’t ever let him go, because he will never let go of me.

– All well wishes.
