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?”
Who are you surrounding yourself with?
Who are your friends?
Who are you letting speak into your life?
Are they people pushing you forward or holding you back? Continue reading “Who’s in your crew?”
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”

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 5. Continue reading “Women In Leadership Roles – Lets Get It”
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?”
Do any of these things sound familiar?
When everything is going wrong, it’s easy to turn to God and say, why me? Don’t you love me? But it’s important that we don’t equate Continue reading “I Want To Be Free!”
So over the past year, I’ve been praying some specific prayer points. Some have been answered, and others I’m still waiting for them to get answered.
But the prayer points I’m still waiting on are some of the major ones I really want to see answered in my life. Sometimes I find myself crying out to God.
Why haven’t you answered me yet?
