Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1: 2-4 NIV

Be Present

Many times when life deals me a losing hand, I just want to lay in the bed under all my covers until it’s time for my hand to be dealt again. I would rather not deal with the tests, trials and temptations of the world. I would rather turn a blind eye to it and... Continue Reading →

Rebound Time

There is no map to where life will take us. There is no dictionary that will define every puzzling part of our lives. There is no day that will be certain. The only thing that is constant -- is God. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8 NKJV) The uncertainty of... Continue Reading →

There is One You

Imagine if we all walked in God’s given purpose for our lives regardless of how imperfectly. Imagine if every time we were bored, we read scriptures and prayed to fill the time instead of playing the comparison game on social media.

Maintaining new ventures like dieting, exercising and even starting a new relationship brings new additions and subtractions to life that may not have been in the original plan. Lately, the Ketogenic diet has spurred my newest life change. I’ve been on this new wave... Continue Reading →

Doubt Doesn’t Open Doors

I doubted everything. Everything I knew God wanted for my life, I thought it would never happen for me. Would God allow me to be married? Would God allow me to have a good paying job? Would God allow me to be successful at all? Marriage and success all seemed so close, but yet so... Continue Reading →

Emotional Rollercoasters

Monopoly Mega — a game of high priced rent, extravagant skyscrapers, elaborate property trades and my rollercoaster of emotions. A few days ago, it was a family game night, and the game of choice was the longest game possible. Throughout the entire night, I was up, and I was down. I would buy properties, earn...
