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 […]
DEAR SINGLES, I want to encourage you. This is a very vulnerable time for so many, including singles. This season of social distancing, isolating, and lack of human interaction can birth feelings of loneliness. It can also ignite deep desires and yearnings for closeness. As well as tempt you to dwell on dark thoughts of […]
If there is someone who knew what it meant to maximize his life and maximize his single years, it was our bro Joe! Every time I read the account of his life in the book of Genesis Ch 37-50; I am left in awe. Joseph was the REAL DEAL in every way! He wasn’t perfect, […]
I’ve had a couple of relapses since I first entered “Trust Issues Rehab.” But you know the amazing part about this whole journey? God’s faithful love. I just don’t understand why He’s so patient with me. Sometimes I think He’s so crazy for putting up with me. I’m like a stubborn little child, that touches the stove, even after He has told me a thousands times it’s hot and it’s going to hurt me. Lol But He is always there after I touch the stove. He lets me crawl into His lap, weep and wail, and then He cradles me in His arms, and tends to my wounds so gently and tenderly. Then He recites so patiently His Word to me. Then it never fails. His Word covers the wounds of my hurting heart like coconut balm. It purifies, soothes, and heals all at the same time. He literally keeps loving me back to life..EVERY..SINGLE..DAY! I’ve never experienced a love quite like this before. During my rehab journey God has loved me greatly and taught me greatly. Read this blog to find out more.
I wrote this blog a long time ago when I was in a really bad space in my life. I’m sharing this now in hopes that it may encourage someone else. Trust is something we all desire to have, but it’s one of the most vulnerable things you can do. My prayer is that your soul may be encouraged as you read this.
