As you may know, Hurricane Dorian made the islands of the Bahamas its victim. The hot waters of the Atlantic Ocean strengthened the storm as it slowed down to gain every bit of energy it could. It seemed as though this hurricane had a goal. A goal to destroy. The result has been devastation. Not … Continue reading Hurricane Dorian’s Social Commentary
American culture centers around the idea of being a leader. We're convinced that leaders are intelligent (both academically and emotionally), valuable, and desirable. Consequently, to label somebody as a follower is to insult their intelligence, value and desirability. We don't believe we can trust followers the way we trust leaders because they're just not commanding. … Continue reading On Being a Leader vs. a Follower
They say that the Bible is a mirror because it shows us exactly who we are. So, I encourage you to take it up and start fixing that outward presentation.
I love the saying, "God's Word never changes, the culture changes." There is nothing missed in the Bible and there is wisdom for every situation. Even if the culture is different, God's Living Word still applies.
At times, I can't wrap my head around Love. Still, I try. I did a few kind things for people quietly today. Shhh, the details don't matter more than the obedience.

My … Continue reading Just say…no?
I feel things shifting in my life and it's clearly time for change. I lamented about my boredom and exhaustion with my writing. And today, I feel recharged. Not to write anything particular, haha. I'm recharged because God has been giving me important dreams lately. Last night I received one that has instructed me to … Continue reading Go to Prayer
In case you haven't noticed by now, I tend to be stuck in the past at times. It's difficult accepting failure. Right? Falling down doesn't feel good. Some times it's a soft fall that you can laugh about, I actually enjoy those. But those falls that feel like miles down a rocky mountainside? Those leave … Continue reading Stuck in Regret
Today's message at church was prompted by an interesting question, "Why do some Christ-followers seem to struggle internally more than others?" It's a question I've often wondered myself because my transformation was so radical. I want to see radical transformations in the hearts of all my friends and family, I want to see them experience … Continue reading Standing Firm
