WWJD: Make time or excuses?

There is this quote I often see circulating around on the internet. It goes something like this-"People make time for what they consider a priority," or something of that nature. In essence, this is what that means: We make a priority, give our time to, and seek out what is essentially important to us. For [...]

Seeing “red”

“You better never wear that red suit again!” This is what my friend had told me after I came out of a meeting with my boss. A meeting in which I had been somewhat nasty. Probably insubordinate. Even uttered the words, “Well, just fire me then.” Apparently, I was out of character, because my friend [...]

You can run…but you can’t hide

Rocks. I mentioned some of them in my last post. Those I threw into the ocean of surrender. And those I threw at cars when younger. Yes. My brother and I were often bored on our little street growing up. If we were not yelling across the street for our cousins to come out and [...]

It will all be OK

Ever skipped rocks across a body of water? Picked up one with just the right shape and texture? Tossed it in such a way that it skips over the surface of the water before it finally chooses the place it will finally sink? I've never tried it. But I have thrown a few. Outside our [...]

Your fear is lying to you

I remember the last time I got on a roller coaster before I declared them off-limits for me. I used to love them. The twisty, the better. So what made me stop? What made me walk around with this irrational fear of them? Nothing has ever happened to me on one. No known tragedy related [...]

On finding acceptance in an old hometown

Hometowns. They can bring such feelings of security. Safety. The feeling of being at home. But there’s a flip side. Those hometowns often become the place we never feel at home. Not accepted. Only remembered for all the mistakes you made. A person you likely are not anymore Jesus was no stranger to being rejected [...]

What happened when I deleted Facebook

If you have been around for a while, or ever seen my YouTube videos, you know I deleted Facebook about 8 or so months ago. I had my various reasons why; some that had to do with my overall well-being. Regardless of those reasons, stepping away from the ever-popular app has had benefits, and has [...]

Grace for the broken

Can a woman of God be broken by Him? Can a person who is faithful to Him struggle with doubts? With temptation? If your answer is no, you are mistaken. I’ll tell you why. Picture a woman. One who is sure of her purpose. She has put her trust in God, is sure of what [...]

A dream renewed

I frequently go through periods when I purge spaces in my home. I have a tendency to hold onto things, and the “stuff” accumulated around me can become overwhelming. In the purging of items like clothes, and only half-working appliances, I often find some reminders of who I was, or rather always had been. Pictures, [...]

Making peace with the Proverbs 31 woman

I have always had a love/hate relationship with the Proverbs 31 woman. I had a desire to be this Biblical gold standard, but then at other times, it seemed to be another standard I could just never live up to. I mean, really. Come on. She finds wool and flax, and spins it (v 13); [...]
