In reading Jesus Walk on the Water in Matthew 14:22-36, I am reminded that we should always keep our eyes on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When situations occur in our lives, we have a tendency to look down at the problem, which takes our focus off Jesus. This can cause your problem(s) to […]Read More Peter Moments
How many times have you uttered the words, “I wash my hands of it?” It can be a situation, person, or even a job. Then, moments later or sometime later, you pick that same problem back up again. This time growing increasingly upset than you were before. Imagine having dirt on your hands, then washing […]Read More I Wash My Hands Of It
Whatever you are facing today, just remember these words, You Will Make It. I went through a tough experience in life that I never thought I would have to face. It wasn’t a part of my plan, and it did not make it in my book of life accomplishments. However, life happened, and I went […]Read More You Will Make It
How many of you have made a decision based on what you thought the other person was thinking, or how you thought they would respond? Recently, God reminded me of a time when I had leaned on my own understanding. Had I ignored God and not corrected what He was revealing to me, then the […]Read More Leaning on Your Own Understanding
I don’t serve a small God. I was going to start off with the pronoun “we,” but I recognize some people think they are still in control. So, maybe I should say it this way, GOD is not small. The Creator of the heavens and earth (Genesis 1:1) and the one who holds us […]Read More Stop Thinking Small!
Are you sitting at home reflecting on your past? Thinking about your past mistakes…going over the woulda, coulda, shoulda? Now that so many of us are self-isolating at home, without the distractions of the office and day-to-day running around, it may be easier to fall into that place of self-doubt and self-despair, over analyzing past mistakes […]Read More The Past is the Past
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 […]Read More Growing Weary?
John 14: 16-17 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever — the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in […]Read More Spirit of truth
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 […]Read More Faithful Friday!

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 […]Read More Believe

There is truly a time to cry, a time to pray, a time to let go…the scripture from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 is so true. Each of us have gone through seasons in our lives that encompassed those moments. Sometimes those seasons may seem unbearable or longer than we would have preferred. Lifting each other up and […]Read More Show Someone You Care Today
Hello everyone! It is amazing how God reminds us of His Holy Word just when we need it. I recently traveled to Ontario, Canada to celebrate my birthday. It is a trip that I will always remember with beautiful sceneries. Well before I left home, I made sure everything was in order. Household duties still […]Read More Do Not Worry
Have you ever become weary in doing what is right? Seeing others getting by (or from what you can see) with sinful behaviors (I’m sorry I have to call it what it is…remember a sin is engaging in anything that God tells us not to do), and thinking for a moment about giving into your […]Read More Held to a Higher Standard
