UNfearFUL

By · Comments Comments Off on UNfearFUL

Around this time last year, I was in the hospital preparing for major surgery. I looked cool, calm, and collected but the truth is that I was an emotional mess and unraveling quickly. Has fear ever taken complete control of your life? Has it grown grotesquely large, entirely or partially blocking God’s position in your […]

 The month of December is flooded with the commercialism of Christmas. Where there is commercialism there is pressure measure up to the standard set by society.

Desperate Times, Drastic Measures

By · Comments Comments Off on Desperate Times, Drastic Measures

Desperation can lead to a critical state of mind. It is defined as reckless or dangerous because of despair or urgency, having an urgent need or desire, leaving little or no hope. Have you ever felt that way, felt desperate? Peter was desperate. In Matthew 14:22-36, the Bible talks about the miracle of Jesus walking […]

Obeying God – The Simply Complicated

By · Comments Comments Off on Obeying God – The Simply Complicated

Imagine if you were mountain climbing alone and lost track of time. Once you realized you would not reach the bottom before dark, you quickened your speed. In your effort to move faster, one thing lead to another and you dropped all of your equipment. Now you’re running out of daylight and fog has accompanied […]

That Familiar Place

By · Comments Comments Off on That Familiar Place

I’ve been here before. Although I can’t see anything, I can feel everything. The smell, the sounds, even the taste, they are all dangerously familiar. The last time I was here, I vowed to never return, yet here I am…again. The sheer blinding darkness, rancid suffocating odor, deafening silent screams, sharp slashing words, and mind […]

Recently, my Christian journey led me to the path of single motherhood. Although my husband’s deployment to Afghanistan was temporary, the lessons God taught me throughout that period are ones that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I grew up in a single-parent home. Even though it was hard (especially as […]

The Size of Beauty

By · Comments Comments Off on The Size of Beauty

Beauty has no size. It can’t be weighed with a scale or measured with tape. Neither can it be bought or sold. Its depth is not determined by men or women. It can only be created by the Creator of beauty itself. We live in a world obsessed with beauty, not naturally flawed beauty, but […]

In the Wait of God

By · Comments (4)

“I’m sorry Mr. and Mrs. Bynum but your son tested positive for epilepsy.” I knew something strange was going on with my son. He would have these moments of “spacing out” and unresponsiveness and when he came out of it he wouldn’t remember anything. Initially no one noticed but me because I spent the most […]

When the Smoke Clears…

By · Comments Comments Off on When the Smoke Clears…

Today is a day similar to yesterday and the day before and so forth. Life has become dull and predictable and you’ve become comfortable with the mundane. It’s the same ole thing, day in and day out, until one day right in the middle of your mediocrity, it happens…. A quick eye blinding flash, a […]

Russian Roulette

By · Comments Comments Off on Russian Roulette

Isaiah 14:24 The LORD Almighty has sworn, ‘Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen.’“ NIV Droplets formed on the rim of her brow and she clenched the life in her belly. Her body quivered while uncontrollable sobs escaped her petrified soul. Again…he spun the […]

Have you ever been in a place, mentally, where darkness consumed you? Has it ever seemed as though the sole purpose of darkness was to completely annihilate or utterly destroy you? There have been times in my life that I thought darkness would literally kill me. It was as though my resistance strengthened its resentment. […]

Unleashing the Lioness: Determined and Destined

By · Comments Comments Off on Unleashing the Lioness: Determined and Destined

Philippians 2:13, “for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” You once had a dream, remember? The one you had before “life” happened? That thing you wanted to do more than anything else in the world? It consumed your thoughts as a child […]

Unleashing the Lioness: Poised and Positioned

By · Comments Comments Off on Unleashing the Lioness: Poised and Positioned

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13 According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary the definition of poised is “to put into readiness – be ready.” I looked up the word positioned and it means “an act of placing or arranging.” It also stated that position is “a point […]

Unleashing the Lioness

By · Comments Comments Off on Unleashing the Lioness

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” -Psalms 139: 14 This particular verse in Psalms is quoted numerous times, however, I often wonder if we are grasping the full meaning of this Scripture. Young women do you realize that you are the living […]

Top Model

By · Comments Comments Off on Top Model

Do you have to have the perfect smile, hair, or body to be a top model? Of course not! However, that’s what society would have us to believe. Being a model has nothing to do with your physical appearance but everything to do with the condition of your heart. No, this is not another one […]

Need an Upgrade?

By · Comments Comments Off on Need an Upgrade?

Have you ever felt like something is missing in your life? I think most of us have at one point or another. We’ve tried filling the “something” with all types of things. We may try drugs, sex, alcohol, food, friends, family, materialistic things, success, or even activities to stuff into that gaping hole in our […]

Somewhere along this journey called life we have become consumed with vanity. We ask our physicians for medication to thicken our eye lashes (Latisse) when we should ask God for the spiritual remedy to the ailment in our souls. It seems as if image and fashion have replaced integrity and faith. Don’t get me wrong, […]

Being a mom is by far one of the most rewarding responsibilities in the world. Let’s face it, mothers help to shape the world we live in. We are bringing in the next generation of presidents, physicians, attorneys, law makers, police officers, teachers, pastors, leaders in Christ, etc. As Christian mothers, we are the carriers […]
