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 →

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...

A Heart of Gratitude

I used to think when Jesus comes back for us, and we see Him at our appointed judgment time, I would say sorry and hope that would be good enough for a heavenly entrance.

Inevitable Trials

One thing this life guarantees us is trials. No matter our age, social class or race, trials will impact and connect us. Tragedy and hardships are written in the plan for us. But, so is perseverance. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that... Continue Reading →

Love Yourself

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12 NIV) “The most important one (commandment),” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
