My Experience As A Young Black Female In The Workplace

I’ve spent the past 6 months working at a small consulting company. Like really small. It’s an awesome place to work, especially compared to what I’ve heard about other companies.  I’m the youngest person, the only black female consultant, and the only one with my job title (small company)-all the other consultants are in more senior roles. My company is quite unique and inclusive. I definitely work with a great group of people! I really have no reason to feel left out or awkward but listen to the story I’m about to tell you.

God, If I’m Being Honest… (An Open Letter)

God,

This is my honest letter to you.

I know you’re all knowing and ever present, but there is a part of me that thinks I know better than you. A part of me thinks I can plan and  execute my life better than you can. I know, it’s crazy. But this is my honest letter. Sometimes you take too long and I prefer to take matters into my own hands and make things happen myself. I know what you’ve called me to do so I made plans  Continue reading “God, If I’m Being Honest… (An Open Letter)”

Living A Life Of Gratitude

Life can be tough sometimes. There is always something to complain about. But you know what? There is always something to be grateful for. Which one will you choose to focus on?

While my mom was visiting recently, there was a day we were out running errands. We stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things. I remember being a little annoyed at how long she was taking to pick out a couple items. I was hungry and wanted to go home and eat. Continue reading “Living A Life Of Gratitude”

How Are You Viewing Your Life Journey?

Contentment. What does it mean to be content?

The dictionary definition says, “ the state of being contented; satisfaction; ease of mind.”

I like the last part; ease of mind.

Earlier in the year, I was praying for a new job.  It took a while, but I finally got the job I had been praying for. But lately, I’ve been dissatisfied.  Continue reading “How Are You Viewing Your Life Journey?”

His Sweet Sweet Love

 

Why does God love us so much?

When I sit down to think about how God is working all the intricate details of my life together, I can’t help but think why me? Why do you care so much about me? Like Psalm 8:4 says,

                                       What is man that You are mindful of him,
                                         And the son of man that You visit him?

One thing I know for sure is that I don’t deserve it; his perfect unending love for me.

When my relationship with God started getting deeper, Continue reading “His Sweet Sweet Love”

The Posture of Surrender

She walks into a room with so much confidence.

She’s such a presence.

Her confidence is encompassing, her beauty is captivating. Continue reading “The Posture of Surrender”

This Prayer Is For…

Heavenly Father,

This prayer is for him. This prayer is for her.

The one that sits alone at night, wondering if this is all to their life.

The one longing for an answer. The one looking to find meaning in their life.

The one who wants to discover the reason they were created.

This prayer is for Continue reading “This Prayer Is For…”

Women In Leadership Roles – Lets Get It

Women. We’ve been counted out. We’ve been thought of as less than. We’ve been told we are not smart enough, good enough, funny enough. But what is enough? The Holy Spirit works in and through all of us, men and women, making us better and more like Christ. So, if Christ is in us, we are enough.

When we talk about the roles of women in Christianity, we usually talk about women in marriage. Being a submissive wife is great, but I do not believe it means an end to our roles as leaders in society. Just look at Mrs. Proverbs 31. Boss lady! Then let’s quickly hop on over to Ephesians 5Continue reading “Women In Leadership Roles – Lets Get It”
