Do Not Worry

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 […]

Held to a Higher Standard

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 […]

“Have It Your Way”

Does everything always have to be your way? I remember a former friend of mine who used to say that if the world thought like her it would be better off. This person had no problems projecting their views on me and became upset when I didn’t agree. I guess you can tell why I […]

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 […]

Giving honor and praise to God for coming up on the one year anniversary of this blog site. If you have not read my About the Blogger page, then let me tell you this site was birthed specifically after praying to God about what He wanted me to do next with my gift of writing. […]

Do You Still Believe?

Do you remember the song Say Yes by Michelle Williams featuring Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland? As I was riding in my car this past weekend, this song started to play. I had completely forgotten about this CD in my disc changer, but I immediately became inspired by the words and started to praise God. Do […]

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? […]

Who Do You Trust?

My family and I went to see The Lion King on opening day. It was quite enjoyable with many applauds at the end of the movie. Though many have seen this storyline played out either on Broadway, in a cartoon, or on film, I couldn’t help but see the true life experience in the story […]

Do you know what time it is?

Greetings everyone! I pray this post finds you all well. Do you know what time it is? In Chapter 3 of Ecclesiastes, the title in NIV is A Time for Everything. Verses 1-8 says: 1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2 a time to be […]

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 […]

Love Thy Neighbor – Testimony

Happy Friday everyone! I would like to share a testimony with you that occurred yesterday. It’s a true testament to the verse love thy neighbor. Granted your neighbor is not just someone in your neighborhood but showing love and kindness to others as you would want to be treated. In Matthew 22:33-40 Jesus replied: “‘Love […]
