TIPS for TOUGH Conversations. Even as a Christian, having tough conversations is not an easy feat, but with God we are more than capable of having them and handling them. I know we are all just trying to make it through this thing called life. So, I decided to share some tips that have helped […]
As a Christian, sometimes it can be easy to get into an autopilot state when it comes to our relationship with God. We can perform all the “right tasks,” but with a daunting heart disconnection from God. It is possible for us to do “good things” as Christians, but it still be wrong. This happens when our feet become programmed into performing “Christian duties” but our hearts, while carrying out those “Christian duties” are far away from God. If we are not careful, after a while, our relationship with God can become artificial, superficial, and mundane. We foolishly place God as another person on our checklist to spend time with, not realizing the gravity and depth of what it means to really be in connection with the true and living God.
Year 29 has been such a beloved teacher for me. I’m so grateful for every lesson, every joy, every sorrow, every tear, every laugh and every opportunity. God is forever faithful and I am so grateful!
What is the secret to being thankful and content in whatever relationship status we are in? It is choosing to “Think Eternity and Not Temporary.” What do I mean by this? I mean choosing to have the proper spiritual perspective about this life. As a Christian, correct perspective is essential to continuance and perseverance through […]
I want to list 3 things that I believe as a Christian is important to remember when we look at politics in this country. 1. This world is not our home. “For this world is not our permanent home: We are looking forward to a home yet to come.”-Hebrews 13:14 The moment we obeyed the […]
If we take a moment to look around the world in front of us, it’s not hard to see that our world is in a constant state of utter chaos and unrest. It can be overwhelming seeing the pandemonium that this virus has caused. It’s also burdening to see the depravity, wickedness, evilness, and straight […]
“I said, let days speak and many years teach wisdom.” -Job 32:7 1. Talking to God (in prayer) and allowing God to talk to me (by reading His word), changes the posture of my spirit and sets the right tone for my day. (Philippians 4:6-8, Pslam 119:25-48) 2. When my words consistently speak God, but […]
I remember this exact photo. My emotions are almost palpable as a stare at this photo again. The immense grief that was within me as I stood on these steps could not be put into words. The deep historical and far existing pain for my ancestors flowed through every vein of my body. Immense anger, confusion, despair, and anguish plagued my heart this day. I didn’t crack one smile, I couldn’t. When I witnessed the murder of George Floyd, I remember feeling just like I felt when I first stepped foot on the grounds of Cape Coast Castle. I was ANGRY, confused, and numbed by such a sinful act. I was so angry I couldn’t speak. There were no audible words that could possibly articulate what I felt in the moment. But in the midst of my anger I was met with God’s truth and His love. His truth broke through my heart, like the sunrise bursting through the seams of a new day. Then my tears broke through my eyes and ran down my cheeks like waterfalls. The truth was this…”I am allowed to be angry..BUT..”
It is our duty as Christians to boldly and relentlessly proclaim the truth of the Gospel and align our lives with the Gospel. In the book of Galatians, the apostle Paul lovingly rebuked Peter and others for their racism and prejudice. Their behavior and hearts were “not acting in line with the truth of the […]
How should a Christian respond to this Coronavirus? The answer…. “IN FAITH.” So many people in this world are chasing after things that only God can truly supply.
