Choose Bravery

Bravery is a necessary component of following Christ. Even though it may cause great internal stress, we must try as hard as we can not to give into fear. Bravery in the face of fear does not develop overnight, but comes from trusting our relationship with God. “Fear of man will prove to be a…

Emotional Roller Coasters

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…

Perspective is Everything

During the last few days, I’ve been thinking a lot about perspective. The way we perceive any situation, whether with pessimism, optimism or somewhere in between, affects our mood and our ability to learn from these situations. In this life, it’s not a matter of if we’ll experience seasons of loss and heartache and failure,…

Waiting in Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1 KJV) Sometimes, the most difficult part about faith is the wait. It’s the patient, occasionally longer than anticipated, wait for the prayers we’ve uttered and the promises we’ve read to come into reality, that can throw a wrench…

What a Year!

Whew! What a year 2020 is turning out to be, right? All we have experienced collectively in the past nine months — senseless murders of black men and women, the passing of modern-day heroes, extreme weather conditions, a global health crisis, etc. — have proved difficult to say the least.  I’m certainly at a loss…

Disciplined Bible Reading

During this time of quarantine, I’ve finally figured out how to incorporate exercise into my daily life. To consistently exercise, I realized structure is necessary for me. Each day, I need a precise schedule to follow on what to do and how to do it – rest days included. Left to my own devices, I…

Chains of Monotony

If you’re like me, most days can seem like more of the same – working, eating, sleeping,  scrolling through social media, working out (on a good day). But today, I want to encourage you to break out of the same monotonous routine. Do something different today! Pray for guidance, and then work towards your short…

Stand Firm

One day, as I was scrolling through my social media feed, I saw an intriguing video featuring two police officers and some protestors.  Officer A was in the midst of scolding protestors, and suddenly shoved over one protestor already kneeling on the ground. Officer B sprinted into action by pushing Officer A away from the…

Work With Your All

Recently, I had to make a return at a local grocery store. Before I could proceed to the customer service desk, one of the workers greeted me, and asked if he could see my return. He diligently rummaged through the items marking each tag to signify a return, and then marking those same items on…

Reading the Bible for Ourselves

The unprecedented access we have to the wisdom of others on YouTube, Netflix, social media, in books, etc. proves bittersweet. On one hand, these outlets provide encouragement, wisdom and advice. On the contrary, these sources can easily take the place of our own personal knowledge and revelation of the Bible, which comes from reading it…
