    Stronger Together

    It’s Not Black or White Since I can remember, I have had a deep love for my African American sisters. When I am with them something comes alive in me and I feel vibrant and full. There is a strength in their spirit that I just adore. I love their soulful spunk, their drive for success, their power and readiness to fight for what they believe in and their rhythm to the music.  They have a warrior strength about them and a unified legacy that cannot be broken. I admire the African American race. Is it their beautiful dark skin, their boldness and ability to stand up for themselves, their…

    In the Waiting

    Waiting Around: Ugg or Ahh! COVID-19 has changed our hustle-bustle world into waiting rooms and isolation chambers. Thankfully, most of us have smart phones, and virtual connections help a lot. Even more thankfully, most of us have families, and maybe we have’t spent this much face-time with them since we were little kids. Even so, the whole world seems to be waiting around. All of us are wondering: will life ever be “normal” again? More likely, we’re facing a new normal, so we need to look for the meaning and purpose in it. Being flexible is the name of the new normal game. But what do we do in the…

    Anxiety

    Ya’ll, let’s talk about a topic that most people do not necessarily like to talk about…Anxiety! I know that A LOT of us experience it on a daily basis but there are some that don’t or are new to the feeling. I guess, I can say that I am very familiar with Anxiety, I have battled with it for as long as I can remember. The worst part about Anxiety is that I don’t always know when it is going to hit, but when it hits me, it literally “HITS” me! It is that elephant sitting on my chest, can’t catch my breath, room shrinking around me feeling….. It is…

    Fear: The Ultimate Solution

    I used to have nightly panic attacks. In the shadows, small worries became giant monsters. When I joined Jesus, He fought for me… and He taught me how to fight for myself and others. I’ve yet to master fear’s ultimate solution (fearing God)… but I’m getting closer. Because fearing God leaves no room to fear anything else. Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.1 Samuel 12:24 (NKJV) Do we remove fear by casting it out? Or possibly, we’re to move beyond it, as in rising rising to a big occasion… which might earn us…

    To the One Who Wants to Hide

    Stop running to other things to find security. Run to the Father. There will always be the “next thing.” If only I had that hair, that guy, that friend, if only those people stood with me when I needed them most. If only I had “that” then I will finally be secure and fulfilled All these things are temporary: our hair falls out, make-up washes off, breakups happen, friends walk out or betray you and people are fickle. None of these things where made to satisfy us- that’s God’s job. God made our core to be love and GOD IS LOVE. To try and find satisfaction in anything else other…
