So many things come to take our attention and steal our focus from The Lord. Life can throw many things at us that cause fear, worry, doubt, hopelessness, anxiety and more. Throughout my years of walking with The Lord, I’ve gone through many seasons of highs and lows. It was in one of my darkest seasons that God taught me how to focus on worshiping Him in spite of my circumstances, how to worship Him through the pain, through the tears, through the persecution, the misunderstanding, the disappointments and the embarrassments. Worship is what got me through. Continue reading
Are you in a long season of waiting and wondering if God has forgotten about you and the things He has promised you? Or are you looking around at what He’s doing in the lives of others and wondering, “God what about me?” As God began to download this topic in my spirit, I could sense that some of you are feeling this way. Some of you are wondering where God is, if He will come through, if what He promised will come to pass, and why things seem to be moving for others but not for you. Continue reading
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great start to your new year. I’m so excited for 2018 and all that God has in store for this year, I truly believe that some great things are going to take place this year. At the beginning and ending of each year I find myself doing a lot of reflecting – I reflect on my life thus far, the previous year, my journey with God thus far and how far He has brought me.

The last few months as I’ve scrolled through social media I’ve noticed something troubling among some of the Christian posts and pages that I’ve come across. I’ve noticed more and more preachers and Christians are preaching a gospel that’s tied to promoting YOU and what YOU want. It’s like a really slick and subtle version of the prosperity gospel. It’s not the full out, “sow a seed and receive a tangible blessing” kind of preaching, it’s more like, “everything you’re going through right now is so that God can finally bless you with your dream of how you want your life to be and that thing you’ve been waiting for” kind of preaching. Both are wrong, and both can lead people astray. Continue reading
Hey Jesus Worshippers! I pray your Thanksgiving went well and you enjoyed time with family and friends.
A few weeks ago, I was a guest speaker on a podcast and spoke on the topic of ‘Defining Success Through God’s Standards.’ It was an awesome show and topic and I’ll link the podcast below once it’s available. The topic of the podcast reminded me so much of my journey of learning that God’s definition of success is much different from what the world calls success. I wish I knew then, earlier in my journey, what I know now. Continue reading
I’m sure a lot of us can agree that we live in a time where everyone says they are a Christian, everyone goes to church, everyone believes in Jesus, and everyone thinks they are going to heaven. The sad reality is many of the people who call themselves Christians really are not. Many people who profess Christ do not live what they profess; the life they live completely contradicts who they say they are. Continue reading
June is a very special month for my husband and I, it was 5 years ago this month that he called me to tell me I was his wife (June 12, 2012), this is the month we got married 3 years ago (June 28, 2014) and it’s also my birthday month (June 20th). So, to celebrate and in honor of our 3rd year anniversary, I decided to do a blog post on relationships this month. Continue reading
In the last few months the Lord has been dealing with me about letting some things go in my personal life. He has also been ministering to me about how as believers we hold on to certain things naturally and spiritually that He wants us to release. Sometimes the cycles we go through emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically are due to the fact that we won’t release things. These things can be emotions, past disappointments, relationships, ungodly habits, and so much more. Often times we can’t move forward in an area or God can’t do certain things in our lives because we are still holding on to these old dead things. I ministered this same topic at a recent women’s meeting at my church and felt led to blog about it as well. Continue reading
A lot of times God will have us in a certain place, situation, or season that we don’t really want to be in. We don’t fully see the purpose of us being there and everything in us fights against the place He has us. It could be a season where things don’t look the way you expected, a time were certain needs or desires haven’t been met, an undesirable living situation, or an extended trial. When God has us in these uncomfortable and unwanted places it’s easy to feel like we should be past it, like we should have moved on by now, or like we just deserve better. Continue reading
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I pray your new year started off well and that this will be your greatest year of growth in your walk with God yet.
I believe with each new year we should strive to grow in God by cutting out things that need to be cut out and making the necessary changes for growth. One of the greatest areas I’ve noticed people struggle in the most is in their thought life. Our thoughts are the seeds that determine our actions. Continue reading
