Hey everybody it’s ya gurl Nij and I want to let yall in on my latest endeavor. After watching Larissa J’s YouTube video “Praying for my Husband,” I felt led to do something similar – not at first though.
Although I liked her idea, by the same token, I didn’t feel compelled to do it. Funny how God will give you a change of heart right?? For about a month, the thought kept coming and I ignored it – until it became apparent that the Lord was laying this assignment on my heart.
So on April 20, 2019, Love Notes Until We Meet was birthed. It’s an an Instagram page dedicated to prayers, poems and daily chats to my future husband. No I haven’t gotten hitched YET, but in this season of my singleness the Lord has me speaking to this thing uhkay??!!
I invite you all to check out my new channel and give me some feedback, comments and/or questions. Also feel free to repost and use the hashtag #lovenotesuntilwemeet
Yall know I couldn’t mention that line and not think of Aaliyah right??!! Anyway, it’s been a whole 7 months since since we last talked. I know I know (shame on me) but although I’ve been kinda quiet on here, I’ve been active on my IG and YouTube.
Hopefully the announcement that I’m about to make will get me back in your graces. So here we go…now yall know usually I’m helping others on their events by vlogging and promoting, but this time I AM HOSTING MY VERY OWN!! It’s been a few years in the making, starting with being led by God to speak more boldly about my singleness and things I have learned while on this journey. First, healing had to take place and then I had to gain some courage and confidence in this season of singleness – especially in a world where the idea of waiting on the Lord to bless you in your love life is seen as a joke. But yall, I’m living that blessed life to the max and decided to gather some single men and women together so that we can chat and chew uhkay??!!
The date is set for Saturday, February 16, 2019 at the beautiful Tabula Rasa Art Gallery in Rahway, New Jersey. Tickets are available so be sure to snatch up one or two…and I hope to see you there!
I was scrolling through the ‘Gram and came across this post and felt it was necessary to share this quick word of encouragement.
Now I’ll be the first to say that being single isn’t always “easy,” however, neither is being connected to the wrong person. For that cause – when it comes to love and matters of my heart – I’m taking my time because I wholeheartedly believe that true love will find me one day. I mean, how upsetting would it be to let my future dude down by settling?
When will he show up?
I have no idea…but I’ll be low key glad…then I won’t have to answer the #1 question “Why are you single?” again *insert chuckle*
Here are 5 points I want to leave you with pertaining to your season of singleness (but could also be used for any aspect of your life actually)…
Live life and walk boldly in your purpose.
Know your worth and don’t allow anyone to sweet talk you into giving discounts.
Know the difference between the one who tells you they want you versus the one who actively pursues you.
If he/she reminds you of the past, RUN!
Trust God through the process because your obedience will pay off

6 days agoby iamnijahjOne of my favorite lines in the movie @harrietfilm was "FEAR IS YOUR ENEMY. TRUST IN GOD!" You know sometimes we all need a reminder to not allow what we see to forget what God said...and yes there are some situations that are seemingly hopeless, seem like a particular season in your life will never end, BUT my dear sisters and brothers we must see it (receive it in the spirit) before we see it (manifested in the natural)...plainly put, we gotta have faith and we gotta keep eye faith uhkay??!! Have a blessed day! #repost@faithonpurpose
5 days agoby iamnijahjTis the Season for Fuzzy Socks, Onesies and Warm Beverages...Place your order today on my online store at store.iamnijahj.com uhkay??!!
2 days agoby iamnijahjDear Singles, The end of another year has slowly crept up on us. Yet, you’re still single. No gender reveal. No wedding proposal. You’re out here trusting God, trying your best to live holy and others who ain’t e’en tryna live halfway holy out here “winning.” Lol, I get it but I need you do something...actually a couple of things: 1. Get in God and press all the way in. I went in 2019 doing that and I’m still pressing and lemme tell you, a GREAT CHANGE, has taken place! 2. Don’t ask God for anything, just begin to thank
4 weeks agoby iamnijahjIf you're looking for "everybody" to see what God sees in you, bro/sis YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME! I mean let's be honest, it's not [always] that folks don't necessarily see it, but they're hoping that you don't, or that you get so discouraged that you give up, or that they don't believe you deserve it. But aren't ya glad your destiny and future aint up to nobody the Lord?? Once you begin to see what God sees and not concern yourself with everybody else, you will reap the blessings that errbody else ain't uhkay??!! #repost@wordswitwren
1 month agoby iamnijahjIt's been a minute since I posted something in regards to singleness but here goes...if the peace of God ain't in it, then neither should [me or] you. Like chaal bye, I can't and won't do the toxic thing. I know what it's like and ion need or want a repeat uhkay??!! The effort SHOULD be reciprocated The thirst SHOULD be mutual Your life/well being SHOULD improve because that man/woman is in your life You SHOULD have a peace about said person from the Lord It SHOULD be give and take, like yall both push each other to be better...
2 weeks agoby iamnijahjIn past relationships I did the pickings...and clearly ain't none of 'em last because Christ wasn't nowhere in the equation. But these days, that's numero uno. I need to know who sent ya and who you confided in first before making the decision to pursue me - cuz a no from Him is a no from me uhkay??!! #repost@author_ceceivory
1 week agoby iamnijahjI spent yeeeeears trying to be like other people and fit in and of course NOTHING WORKED. But I found Christ and realized why nothing worked - and life has made so much sense ever since that moment! I finally learned to appreciate who, how and why God made me and issa beautiful thing uhkay??!! #repost@tiapughtalks
