Recognizing the Season You’re In

If you were to examine your current situation or season in life right now, what would you say? Think about that for a quick moment. Would you say that you’re in a grinding season, dry season, getting married season, waiting for your godly mate season, raising small kids or teens season, empty nesting season, spiritual warfare season, tests and trials at nearly every turn season, growing closer to God season, and the list could go on and on, right? Gotcha! So let’s talk (or read) [...]

How to Overcome Disappointments

If you've opened this post, you’re either disappointed right now about something or someone, or maybe you simply want to learn more on how to overcome disappointments when they strike. Wherever you are on the topic, I pray that this post ministers to you, greatly.  Now let’s go deeper. Either way you look at it, disappointments hurt. Yet, it’s a rather unique type of hurt. It’s more of an emotional pain. It’s like an internal let down to what you may have expected from someone [...]

Removing Distractions in 2017

Now that 2016 is behind us, it’s time to start looking forward to the things ahead in 2017! Are you ready? I know that I am! But before we march further into this New Year, let’s reflect back for just a brief moment to remember the times when we allowed the distractions of life to either sidetrack us or delay progress for spiritual growth or work and ministry. Let’s start with the spiritual growth part first. How many times did you allow the alerts on [...]

During the Holidays

It’s that time of year when Christmas is drawing near and everyone is super busy with all of the planning and preparations. Some are getting ready to hit the road to visit family, while others are scurrying around preparing for them to arrive. No matter where you are in this season, during the holidays enjoy the food, fun, and fellowship, but while you’re doing all of that, don’t forget to shine bright to those whom you are around. The Holiday season can be exciting for [...]

Journal It

Do you have a journal? If you do, then I think that is GREAT! However, if you don’t have one, then I would highly suggest that you get one…TODAY! Either way, the reason being is because I want to encourage you that journaling can be very helpful when it comes down to so many things (which I’m going to talk about in just a sec). But the initial point here is that whatever’s going on in your world, guess what? You can journal it! It’s [...]

What in the World is Happening?

A lot is happening in our world right now. You would have to be on an island with no communication in order to not see what’s happening in the world around us. There’s civil unrest with the Black Lives Matter vs. Blue Lives Matter. There’s terror attacks happening in the U.S. such as the San Bernardino in California and the Pulse night club in Orlando. And now the more recent attacks in Brussels, Nice, and now Germany. Not to mention, we’re facing an upcoming presidential [...]

Personal Reflection…What Do You See?

If you could change something about yourself, what would it be? Think about at least 1-3 things that you might consider changing for the better if you could. As a matter of fact, when you get a free minute, pull out a sheet of paper and pen or even pull out your phone and write a quick note to yourself and do this little assignment. After you’re done with it, take a moment to reflect on it, pray about it, and start working on those [...]

Sneaky Temptations

Were you afraid to click onto this post? Did you dare to venture to see what I was going to be talking about in this week’s post as it relates to temptations? Well, I am not going to harp on food addictions in this blog. So you don’t have to be scared. Rather, I am going to write about the everyday temptations that we encounter without even realizing that it’s a temptation. The devil is very cunning, especially in these last days. And we have [...]

Be Better, Not Bitter

If you’re reading this right now, I would gather that you either want to know how to be better and not bitter, or you want to help someone else in this case. Whatever your position, I’m glad you’re here. Because we need to have the conversation about it. And the reason being is so that healing can begin to take place. So…are you ready? Usually, bitterness doesn’t just happen. It’s a bit of a process. It’s slow, sneaky, and it can be vicious if not [...]

Study the Word for Yourself

As a Christian woman, you are instructed to read the word, speak the word, obey the word, meditate on the word, and STUDY the word for yourself. The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” When you study the word, this pleases God. And not only that, but when you share the word with others you will know what you’re saying, and you won’t be [...]
