Resting in and on the ROCK
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 am Allowed to be Angry 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..”
Faith in the Midst of a Pandemic
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 […]
The Grass is Not Always Greener
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 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.
Broken Lamps Still Shine
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill can’t be hidden. People do not light a lamp and put it under a bowl, instead they put it on its stand. Then it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine in front of others. […]
Grown Wounded Child
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.
When FAITH and FEELINGS DO NOT Match
Just being candor for a moment… I would consider myself a very emotional person. I’ve always been this way even as a little child. I feel emotions SO deeply. Happiness, sadness, empathy, whatever emotion it is, I’m ALL in. I’m thankful for God’s intricate design of creating me with a sensitive heart to be able to feel, express my feelings, and connect with others, but therein lies one of my greatest challenges. My emotions are the very thing I’ve had to learn to rear and discipline. That my friends is one of the hardest task of my life! I write this blog currently in one of my splew of “emotional battles” wondering, “Ok Lord, what’s going on in my life right now? Things are not making sense and my feelings say one thing, but my faith says another. What am I supposed to do?” Read more to find out the answer to this question.
Looking into the Mirror
Have you looked into the mirror today? I’m not talking about just any ol’ mirror. I’m referring to the “true mirror.” Apart of growing in this life, is first having the ability, and the humble honesty to truly see ourselves..”the good, the bad, and the ugly.” In this blog, I discuss how we can truly see ourselves if we take the necessary time to look into the “true mirror” of life. Be encouraged!
Ladies Stop Looking
Writing this blog is very emotional for me. The reason I say this is because, my heart is so heavy for many single women in the world today. If you are a single woman reading this, I want you to feel my heart for you as I write these words. “HE who finds a wife […]
