Busybodies

  Hi Everyone! Opening the door to idleness or becoming a busybody is never good. In fact, though we may know people who gossip and meddle in other people’s affairs, we are advised as believers not to live this way. Proverbs 24:1-2 Do not envy the wicked, do not desire their company; for their hearts […]

Quick Comeback

Has someone ever said something to you, and you didn’t have a response in a timely manner – a quick comeback? However, hours later or even days later, the response you could’ve said pops up and you wished you had said that very thing… I know I have. This has happened during conversations with friends, […]

Growing Weary?

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.   How many of you are growing weary right now? A delay does not mean a denial with God. The Holy Bible reminds us in Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my […]

Faithful Friday!

We serve a God who is Faithful every day. Let’s not forget to give Him praise. I was scrolling through a friend’s post on Thursday and she titled it Thankful Thursday. It was a great reminder that regardless of what is going on around us, we should give thanks. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray […]

Focus on the Love of Christ

God loves all of His children. It’s so easy to get caught up on people walking this earth (i.e. love ones, friends, acquaintances, social media, etc.) and how they treat us. There were many times that I felt people didn’t see nor appreciate the goodness of my heart because it wouldn’t stop them from treating […]

Believe

When I thought of what to write about today, there was not one title that stood out, but many… As the end of 2019 draw near and welcome in a new year not already seen, there are things we can leave behind.  In my past, I was the queen of holding my feelings in because […]

Cast Your Cares

Have you ever developed an I don’t care attitude? Things just aren’t going as you would like, so you just throw your hands up in the air and say, “I don’t care!” Tired of waiting for your breakthrough or receiving bad news or dealing with this and dealing with that, so you just throw your […]

Just get back up…

While I was recently out for a jog, I passed a house where a woman was taking out her trash. We spoke as I passed by. She said she needed to be outside doing the same thing. I quickly told her I was getting back into the groove myself (I had been off my workout […]

Brokenness

Sometimes in life we cause our own pain (e.g., we stay at a place or with someone longer than we should, we ignore God’s warnings, we hold on to something longer than we should, etc.), but what happens when someone else’s brokenness or lack of responsibility falls upon you? What are you supposed to do? […]

Forgiveness – the time is now

I prayed on a topic this week and immediately the word forgiveness came to mind. I have to be honest; I immediately searched my heart to make sure I wasn’t harboring any unforgiveness. Unforgiveness can linger at times and you may not even know it. Sometimes we utter the words to God in prayer that we forgive […]
