No Matter What, Give God Praise

Last night after an emotional day with all that is going on in the world, Marquis and I decided to go live and just hang out in the presence of the Lord.


There wasn’t any form or fashion. In fact, I was in my pajamas. It was non-rehearsed. We just sang! No matter how it sounded or even if we messed up, the point was to just be uniquely us in our vulnerable state just worshipping God, seeking his guidance, peace, comfort and so on.


I’m going somewhere with this! Stay with me!!!!!


A friend/sister of mine got on the live along with others expressing the need for praise and worship in that moment. She said it encouraged her to go live on today and worship God as she would on Wednesdays, but that day she too was emotionally drained and did not go on!


Listen, God’s plans are perfect! Do you hear me?!


This morning I awoke in good spirits and then watched a press conference here in my city and the amount of racism in the comments tore me down. My spirit was heavy. People calling Black people out of our names and demeaning our existence. Again my heart was heavy.


But God….


If you don’t know him, now is your time to get to know him.


That same sister went live as she said she would and sent me in such a worshiping state. All emotions I felt right before this was gone.


I stayed in worship even when she went off the live. One particular song she sang did something to me so I had to keep singing it myself!


Thank you sis for allowing God to use you on today! Yesterday you said you needed it, but today I did!!! To God be ALL Glory!!!!!

How Are You Feeling?

As I reflect on all that is going on in the world, my own personal emotions as well as how I physically feel, I realized that others may be feeling the same as I do.


I’m tired for many reasons and have a lot of different emotions going on at the same time. Me being me; I have still been smiling.


Today; however, I am not okay and that is okay. We are all entitled to our days! It is what you choose to do in those days that make the big difference, so I am taking the time to do everything on my terms. My phone is on DND, I’m not getting any notifications unless I look, I will interact when I choose to and rest when I choose to.


How are you all feeling????

Angel’s Lupus Journey Presents ~ Protect, Provide, Support: A Spouse’s Perspective

Written by Marquis Derricott

When you are the spouse of someone with Lupus, times can get extremely tough. There are nights when you cannot sleep because they cannot sleep. There are times that you cannot do certain things because they cannot do certain things, and even at times it might cause frustration in your (the spouses’) life, BUT you know what?! You still love them through all of that because they are who you have chosen to be with!

Now, I have chosen to name this article Protect, Provide, Support for one reason. That reason being, as a (male) spouse, I was always taught that you protect and provide for your spouse. I mean, I can provide for Angel in many ways, (financially, materialistically, food, housing, e.x.). I can protect her from break-ins, robbers, bugs (which she is afraid of! lol), but there is one thing that I cannot protect her from, LUPUS.

I cannot protect her from not being able to sleep at night because of insomnia or painsomnia. I cannot protect her from being hungry because she could not physically get up out of the bed to get some food while I was at work. I cannot protect her from her achy joints and side effects due to the Benlysta shots that she has to have weekly. I cannot protect her from the headaches that she gets, or the fibromyalgia that she has on a daily basis.

BUT, what I CAN do is SUPPORT her through it all.

I try my best to stay up with Angel when she cannot sleep (even though most of the time I fall asleep anyway lol). I try my best to understand her achy joints and pain even though I do not have the same issues. I try my best to understand that we cannot do certain things today because this is a flare day.

Yes, at times is does get frustrating, but I promise you that my frustration is nothing compared to what she has to deal with on a daily basis.

Now I have to admit, when I first started dating Angel, I didn’t understand everything that came with Lupus, so I kind of became a butt. I didn’t understand how one day she could be okay, and the next day she couldn’t move. I didn’t understand how one day she would be down for whatever, and the next she could not get up. It took me a while to truly understand that things change weekly, daily, hourly, even every moment. It took me years to truly understand what Angel really goes through, but all she ever asked me for was SUPPORT!

When I started to understand what she had to deal with, I became more sympathetic and really began to support her, and will do so for the rest of my life. It’s not always pretty, but its real. The hurt that I feel just from seeing her hurt is unbearable, but we WILL get through it TOGETHER.

I wish that all spouses would wake up and take the same approach. It would really make a huge difference in the life of someone that has to deal with a chronic illness!

As a spouse of someone with a chronic illness, I had to realize that there will be times when you just cannot protect and provide for your spouse in the ways that they may need in that moment, but there is one thing that you can always do and that is to SUPPORT them and try to understand what they are going through at that time. Just being there for them makes all the difference in the world!

Now to put a spin on the words of my beautiful fiancé “I love you all, I love you all with the love of Jesus. May your spouse’s understand more tomorrow than they did yesterday.”
