Who is there to lift you up when things are tough? Who are the people that are there for you when life gets hard? Who do you talk to when God seems too distant to hear your cries?
I truly believe that there is nothing the love of God cannot overcome. But I also know that God has also given us each other. Continue reading “How’s Your Mental Health? Let’s Talk About It”
Why didn’t anyone tell me THIS is what it feels like?
I’ve been around church people my whole life. I used to get so mad when my mom would make my younger brother and I go to church with her on Wednesday evenings. I remember how annoyed I was when I went to school the day after the blinky do shoes episode of My Wife and Kids aired, and everyone was talking about it. I was mad I didn’t get to watch it because I was at church. I couldn’t comprehend why people would willingly spend a weeknight in church. Continue reading “Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me?”
“I thought by now everything would have worked out. I thought by now I would’ve accomplished my goals. I thought I’d be there by now. God if you love me so much why am I still struggling? God when will I be free?”

So it’s that time of year again. It’s Valentine’s Day! Around this time of year I used to get kind of sad if I didn’t have a man to spend time with on Valentine’s day. I always wanted someone to be around just for the sake of having someone around.
But this year it’s completely different. I almost forgot Continue reading “It’s Valentine’s Day, I’m Single, But I’m In Love!”
I like to know everything. I want to know how things are going to turn out from the beginning to the end. I want to know if I start wearing my hair in a new way, if it’s a hairstyle I can still wear when I’m 50. I want to know if a guy and I start getting to know each other, if we’re going to get married or not. I want to know the full plan. So when God starts leading me in one direction, I like to fill in the rest of the story. For example, Continue reading “Being Spirit Led In Fulfilling Our Purpose”
This year has been one of the most uncomfortable years of my life. But you know what? I wouldn’t change it for anything.
God really took me through a process this year and brought me into deeper relationship with him. Right from January God pulled me in and I’ve really seen John 15 at work since. A.k.a a pruning process.
I learned so much Continue reading “IT’S BEEN AN UNCOMFORTABLE YEAR”
Have you ever been so scared to do something because you didn’t know how it was going to turn out? Well that was me not too long ago.
A few weeks ago I spent a couple weeks just being really sad and full of anxiety about the future. I was really stressed out because Continue reading “Getting Back To A Place Of Rest”
