DeActivated

Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers- There is nothing more exhausting than living a life of comparison. Nothing.

Holiday Anxiety

” I don’t know about you all, but I feel like we live in a world where we are always asked to supply answers to questions that we simply don’t have the answer to.  For example, “How long will you be single?”; “When are you going to have some kids?”; “Girl, why you ain’t got a boyfriend?; “Girl, when are you getting married?”  In my heart I want to scream, “I DON’T KNOW, DO I LOOK LIKE GOD?”  but on the outside, I smile gracefully and say, “I don’t know.  I’ll let you know when I find out.”  I’m not going to let them know… I’m going to make all my announcements after the fact on social media.  My family will find out about my life choices when the world finds out. Trifling?  Yeah, I know. “

Happy Christmas

For it is my belief, that the day this sweet baby boy came to the world- the world was changed forever. Jesus came to change the world. He came to bring hope and to bring love to the outsiders. He came to bring joy to the depressed, to rescue those who were hanging on by a wing and a prayer. He came for broken people, for those that people gave up on, for those that were deemed to be unlovable.

Anything Broken Can Be Fixed: A Reconciling God

Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers- So I was thinking….if something can break then it can be fixed, right? At least I believe so.  I’m sitting in my office and just reflecting on the goodness of God and His power to reconcile and heal.  It’s so easy to think that something that breaks…

Like Abraham….

Some of us have to get away from our family to get into the place God has designed for us….
