#STYLEMOMENT: SARA JAKES ROBERTS (@SJAKESROBERTS)


Hey Power Players! Today's Style Moment goes to the lovely Sara Jakes Roberts. I absolutely love this look and it stopped me in my tracks when I was scrolling on Facebook. I love that it is a ready-to-wear jumpsuit. However, the color, the draping, and the tailoring makes this a very regal look. I should call her Sarah Slay because she definitely slays often! The jumpsuit is from SB Boutique.

If you are beautiful, stylish, deserve your moment to shine, and you would like for Miss Elisa K, The Blog to feature your gracefulness and stylish expressiveness, please email me at info@misselisak.com. Subject: Style Moment. Dopeness & SMOOCHES XOXO

KEVOH YOUT "DANCEHALL CLEANUP" MUSIC VIDEO



Hey Lovely Ones! I don't know if you know but I love all types of music. I really love dancing to reggae and dancehall music and just having a good time. Well today I found an awesome new video from Kevoh Yout. He is Christian and does positive dancehall music. The dancehall music lyrics from my childhood included dutty wind, freak, you know you want some, rum and Red Bull, and many other things that I can't allowed to be planted into my heart as a servant of Christ. So I am so glad I found Kevoh Yout because there no limit to expressing yourself in Christ. Please be led by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God but other than those things, no limits ;)

Also I just want to take the opportunity to thank God for how He is shifting this blog and just my life in general. He is really shaping my niche and I am so grateful for the Lord using me in this way. I want to feature Christian musical artists but I also want to find the new stuff. I don't want to just give you what's out and what everybody knows about. I want to feature the artists that are humble and need a platform.

If you would like your music or video featured on Miss Elisa K, The Blog, please email your inquiry to info@misselisak.com. Subject: Music Feature. That is all. Make the Dancehall Clean & SMOOCHES XOXO

#FOODFORTHOUGHT: PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

Hey Friends! Of course, I had all intentions of covering another topic today. However, I have been swayed in another direction due to a change in my own behavior. I am praying about everything now. The following scripture is the only one I that comes to mind:

Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)



I just want to remind you that you must pray about everything. This week, I got good news; I prayed.  I got bad news; I prayed. I got sick; I prayed. I got annoyed; I prayed. I got angry; I prayed. I felt lust creep into my spirit; I prayed. I wanted to take over the world; I prayed. I wanted to give up; I prayed. I could clearly hear God; I prayed. I began to doubt; I prayed. I received some wisdom; I prayed. I felt like I knew nothing at all; I prayed. I did the right thing; I prayed. I made a mistake; I prayed. I prayed. I prayed some more. And I kept on praying.

Prayer isn't something you just do when you feel like it or because it's mandated by God. I had to learn this over the course of many years. Praying is a lifestyle and it is a choice. However, it is one of the best decisions you could ever make on your walk with Christ. He is our lifeline. He wants to talk to us and give us wisdom. However, how can He speak and we don't put ourselves in position to hear His voice. It's like being in the middle of the forest with no one around for hundreds of miles. You are screaming for your mother to find you but she can't hear you; no one can. And what makes all of this so bad, she gave you a phone that actually has a signal everywhere. All you had to do was charge it, but you neglected to do so.

Your lack of a prayer life is that dead phone. You can't wait until you get in trouble to call on God. You have to charge your prayer life and your relationship with Jesus daily. The longer you go without praying, the further you move away from Him. You have the Holy Spirit in you that can propel you through some of life's hardest trials. But don't you know the Holy Spirit is activated by prayer? If you don't pray, you don't have any fuel to make it. Prayer is the answer. Even if you haven't felt evidence of the Holy Spirit (speaking in tongues, for example) you can still have a strong prayer life and the presence of the Holy Spirit that is undeniable. Prayer is the tool we all need. It's your cell phone that Jesus gave you. It has a strong signal anywhere we go, in any point of our lives, and in any trial we may endure.

We all know (or have heard when others have prayed) that when you pray you must acknowledge who Jesus is, repent of your sins, and give Him praise. Here are some other things to remember about prayer.

1. Just Start. Okay, so you don't pray everyday and maybe you haven't prayed in a while. Don't go another second unconnected. Get charged and start praying NOW!

2. Simple is okay. You don't have to be deep, and it doesn't have to be long. Even if you just thank God for waking you up, at least you are communicating your gratitude to Him. He hears it and will began to show you other sides of Him if you truly are having trouble coming up with things to pray about. Pray about the things you know until He increases your wisdom.

3. Don't Wait for Fireworks. You could cast out demons and raise your prayer life from the dead while you are having a great one-on-one session with God and not feel a quickening or anything from the Holy Spirit. Good News: That's not a sign that God didn't hear you. Better News: The Holy Spirit is still there with. Just because you don't feel it in your flesh doesn't mean it isn't taking root in your heart and spirit.

4. Anywhere, Anytime. I know growing up, we were taught to say your prayers every night on your knees, by your bedside. Many preach about praying early in the morning before you start the day. Both awesome practices to build your praying stamina. However, don't let it limit your prayer life either. I often pray in the car, the bathroom at work, or a garden near my office. I even prayed at my desk today. Pray whenever you need to, no matter the time or place.

5. Be genuine. All I am going to say is don't play with God. He already knows everything. Prayer with Him is supposed to be freeing because you can lay all of your baggage before Him. Yes, He will correct you. But at least it is off your back and no longer weighing you down.

6. Its a habit. If it's not, you need to make Prayer your habit. Complaining and gossiping used to be habits for me but I made a decision to replace those vices with prayer. Prayer is an essential virtue. We all need it. No matter how you slice it, everyone is brought to their knees eventually if they keep walking.

So, PRAY! Prayer is always advised when I write a post like this one. Surely, praying is one of the most important things in my life and I am grateful to have it as one of my weapons of choice when I feel the enemy wants to come for me. I want you to be well equipped and armored also. Slay, Pray, SMOOCHES XOXO

#STYLEMOMENT: YFL4G'S MEDALLION TEE

 

Hey Happy People! Today's Style Moment is dedicated to Young, Fly, & Living 4 God's (YFL4G) Medallion Tee. I saw this shirt on Instagram not too long ago and I instantly loved it. There are MANY t-shirt brands. However, I feel like this t-shirt goes beyond and can be a very stylish "piece" to add to your wardrobe. It's is unisex and comes in black or white. The style factor is maximized with gold hardware and faux leather detail. I am literally waiting until I get paid next month so that I can purchase one for the summer. I must say YFL4G's has a hit on there hands with this design.

If you have a brand that you would like for Miss Elisa K, The Blog to feature, please email me at info@misselisak.com. Subject: Brand Feature. Step Step & SMOOCHES XOXO

JAMIE GRACE "FIGHTER" MUSIC VIDEO



All I can say is that I love this song by Jamie Grace. I first heard it on the radio one night when she was doing promo for her album probably about a year ago. Jamie did this song live and it just always sang in my spirit. This is one of those songs that just gets you through. It means so much that she lifts people up through her music. If ever someone blesses your life, whether you know them personally or not, lift them in prayer. God knows who to deliver your prayer to. Jamie is on my list of prayers sent. SMOOCHES XOXO
