  • Not Comfortable

    Think about this for a second… Maybe take a minute… Possibly even more than that… I have been pondering this all year. Now, we know that “Faith is the evidence of things not yet seen, and the assurance of things hoped for” (Hebrews 11:1), but what does that even mean? What does it mean to […]

  • Trusting The Process

    “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10, KJV) She saw it boldly written. The other words seemed faint as she glanced through her bible. She had flipped through the pages continuously and that was the only verse that she caught sight of. She threw her bible to the floor and went down […]

  • ON FIRE: Aflame for God

    ON FIRE: Aflame for God

    Inspired by Aflame for God, by Smith Wigglesworth By desensitizing people to miracles, to divine manifestations, and to divine works, we as a people desire less of the works -calling them theatrics-, and focus more on the materialistic prosperity – calling them blessings- as signs of God’s involvement. Nothing stops us from raising the dead […]

  • Abandon

    Abandon

    What are you afraid of? What keeps you up at night? Honestly, I have been scared. Scared, without realizing that I am afraid. Scared, with no certainty of what I am scared of. Scared, of the unknown. Scared, of what is to come. Often times, we say the right things, have the right answers, read […]

  • Conformity vs. Transformation

    Conformity vs. Transformation

    …Sometimes, to better understand where you are going, you need to look back on where you are coming from… Often times I forget the bondage from which I was freed. The bondage masked under pleasure. The bondage masked under ‘societal norm’. The bondage masked under capitalism. The bondage masked under liberalism. The bondage which by […]

  • Quotes – Uniquely You

    Quotes – Uniquely You

    “Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Already Taken” – Oscar Wilde “Nobody Can Make You Feel Inferior Without Your Consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt   These quotes were ones I held onto in my life for some time. I remember as a teenager, going through so many changes emotionally, physically, and so much more; I repeated these […]

  • THE WORD

    THE WORD

    The Word started it all, sustains it all, and will settle it all. The Word is the beginning, middle, and end. I was meditating on the Book of John, particularly John chapter 1. As I read this passage, taking the time to read, meditate on, and listen to each verse, I kept thinking of Genesis […]

  • My Battle Plan

    My Battle Plan

    How often do I let what I am doing for God take up the time that I am meant to spend with God? I woke up this morning excited to check out my site, to write, to see if there was any feedback left on the writings I had shared, to continue in this area […]

  • If I could be Jealous

    If I could be jealous of anything in this life, I would be jealous of those who came to God (through Christ) early. The pain, loss, misunderstandings, heartbreaks, and wasted time that I could have avoided. All the wasted efforts and trivial pursuits that could have been avoided. Oh boy. I would not be jealous […]

  • That FOUR LETTER word

    “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13). Love… We say it, we think we know it, we give it, and we hope to experience it as we go about our day to day life. Love… That four letter word that seems to be […]

  • Self Concept

    Self Concept

    I was privileged enough to read a book by one of my mentors (from afar) titled; “Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms.” This book is coauthored by Tim Tebow with A.J. Gregory. I remember the first time I picked up the book, I had to put it down. Not because I could […]

  • Thank You

    Thank You

    “I will give thanks to you Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all of your wonderful deeds.” [Psalm 9:1]. This was a year end reflection letter written in 2014. A thank you letter more than anything else. It is now years later, and this letter still resonates. More so now than it […]

  • Why me?

    Why me?

    There is a level of confidence needed to live a life of faith Confidence in God, confidence in His word, and confidence in the promises that we find within them. Far too often, I sell myself short, I hinder myself, I get in my own way – because I lack confidence. I look at myself […]

  • The Ephesians 5 Guide

    “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us, and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (Ephesians 5:1-2). We must always remember that Jesus was only able to fulfill His ministry because of one thing – He surrendered. He was in constant […]

  • Why Settle?

    “Increase my capacity to receive more” [Baba, Jonathan Nelson] Increase my capacity to receive more. Increase my ability to receive more of what you have for me. I will not settle for mediocre. I will not settle for just ‘good enough’. Because Your thoughts towards me are of good and not of evil, I am […]
