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 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..”
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. Money cannot save us; the crashing stock market is proof of that. Our jobs do not give us guaranteed security, the millions of unemployed are proof of […]
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 want you to imagine that you, or should I say your life represents grass. We’ve all heard the saying that the grass is not always greener on the other side. This statement is to show the reality that things are not always as good as they seem. It also encourages us not to compare […]
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.
Time does not heal all wounds. Sometimes time further reveals the wounds that haven’t been attended to or dealt with. Wounded children don’t grow up to be adults, they grow up to be still wounded children. No matter how old we get in earthly years, we will never out-grow being a child to God. Our healing is found in our Heavenly Father who created and made us. Don’t believe me? Read more to find out.
