My Good Place…

I’m comfortable. It’s the morning time and my home is quiet, peaceful, a bit serene. I’m sitting in my dining room looking out of my window watching as the wind makes its way through the trees. I’m in my good place, a place where I can be me, free from distractions. My computer is in front of me and I’m typing my first entry on

Yes! The excitement of freely writing and expressing myself in a way that I love, in a way that suits me, is my good place. I feel satisfied and I’m embracing this new beginning. Hopefully this feeling will transcend across my blog and my facebook groups today.

I did state that this is a “new” beginning. It all started a month ago when I became free to pursue what I am most passionate about, helping others. For years, I worked a 9-5, that was rewarding until it began to drain me, and I had nothing left to offer anyone else, myself included. You see, I live to encourage and help people find a happier way of life. During the last couple of years while I worked for someone else time did not permit me to cultivate or nurture my passion, my way of life was robbing me of what I wanted for myself and others-a happier life.

I’ll introduce myself. My name is Dona Nesbit-Smith. I am a Child of God, a Wife, a Mother, a Relative and Friend. I am also, a writer, singer, motivational speaker, merchandiser and event planner. I have a blog known as “God Wants Me Happy”, 2 Facebook groups-the first one is Grow a Minute-A-Day-With God and the second one is ShePlants. Writing is one of favorite ways to communicate.

Depression No More

God Wants Me Happy

My blog, “God Wants Me Happy“, is focused on removing the grip of depression and living the life that God wants for us. It’s time to be happy, not that every day will bring blissful happiness, but there’s a way to deal with life’s curveballs without losing ourselves in a downward spiral of depression.


Grow A Minute-A-Day-With God

Grow A Minute or GAMAD, is a Facebook group I created 3 years ago to help others grow a relationship with God. Each month presents a new focus and every 3 months we go back to basics and learn to read, pray or spend time with God starting at 1 minute a day and grow through the month, i.e., 2 minutes on the 2nd day of the month, 5 minutes on the 5th day of the month, and so on until we’re reading, praying or spending time with God for 30 minutes.


ShePlants is my baby, not yet a year old, ShePlants is a Facebook group for women who love God, themselves and their families. It’s centered on sharing stories and ideas that will help women of all ages, planting and cultivating seeds to produce greater works in other women.

What’s Next?

What Are You Thinking?

What are you thinking about? What stays on your mind? Are you worried? Are you frustrated, stressed, tired, worn out, etc.?

Cast thy burden upon the Lord , and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Psalms 55:22 KJV

Are you tired of being tired? Today I encourage you to change your thinking. Have faith and believe that God will take care of you.

Give your burdens to the Lord , and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
Psalms 55:22 NLT

Can you let go of what you have been thinking? Do you want to be happy? Do you wasn’t to just let it go and live? I encourage you to be free! God wants to take care of you.

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail).

God's love letter


I Still Say, “Thank You”!

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18(KJV)
How can we say, “Thank You God”, about everything?  In my head, I hear voices saying,
But I feel so sad.
Nothing is working out for me.
I hate my life.
I don’t like how I’m treated.
I don’t know what to do.
I don’t know where to go.
I’m lost.
I have nothing.
Everything’s gone.
Everyone’s gone.
So how can I say, “Thank You God”?
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (KJV)
Allow your faith to let this sink in.  Every.single.thing in your life is working for your good.  The roadblocks that you’ve experienced were and are lessons to help you get to where you are going.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 (KJV)
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art here: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. Psalm 139:8 (KJV)
For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 (KJV)
You CAN still say “Thank You God”, Thank You Lord”!  I’ll tell you why.  Things didn’t work out, but certain other things have worked out just right.  Everything doesn’t feel good right now, but you’ve felt good in your life and you will feel good again.  That problem hurt you real bad, but today you can lift your head up and say, “Thank You Lord”, because you aren’t hurting now.  Trust God to bring you through your situations.
Thank Him for what He’s about to do in your life!
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD . “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)

The Veil is Removed!

Grace and Peace!

I thank God for removing the veil from my life! 

We don’t have to worry about God’s glory fading away from us, we have the ability to communicate with God our Father and the Holy Spirit helps us to understand Him.

It doesn’t matter what you are going through or how bad it has gotten, you can now live free.  You can give God all of your problems and ask Him to show you the way out of them.  It’s then up to you to get some sleep or some rest while you wait on His answer.  Once you receive the answer you can then run and get it done, but you don’t have to worry.

God’s Glory won’t fade like it did in Moses’ day.  If you stay connected, He will stay right there and give you peace in the middle of that problem.  He will bless you if you believe Him for the blessing!



He wants to to bless you and that is why He removed the veil!

Trust Him for your happiness today!

2 Corinthians 3:7-18:

7 The old way,[a] with laws etched in stone, led to death, though it began with such glory that the people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses’ face. For his face shone with the glory of God, even though the brightness was already fading away. 8 Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit is giving life? 9 If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God! 10 In fact, that first glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming glory of the new way. 11 So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new, which remains forever!

12 Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold.13 We are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so the people of Israel would not see the glory, even though it was destined to fade away. 14 But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ. 15 Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand.

16 But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.


Let Me Share this With You!

Psalm 35:1b Most of us are familiar with the behavior of spectators, because at one time or another, we’ve been one. Whether at a graduation, sporting event, professional boxing match, and sadly in a church pew, we were present only to witness the event. We were not on the program. We did not participate. We […]
