Priorities

So, this week has been a real eye-opener for me. The past few months have been a period of extreme growth and spiritual awakening for me. And maybe I got a bit too cavalier about everything. Maybe I let pride get a little bit of a foothold. Maybe I just let anxiety get the better

No Fear

Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears. ¬†1 John 4:18 The Spirit we receive¬†does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God. With

Gettin’ My Psalms On: Day 3

Psalm 3 As one who struggles with anxiety, the Psalms have become sort of a comforting best friend to me over the years. When I read them, the enemies spoken of are often not actual people (though I have had many instances where my enemy has come in human form). No, often the enemies in

Wow you guys, I feel like I haven’t been on WordPress in months, it’s only been a few days! I’m so sorry if I haven’t been as responsive to comments or read many of your posts. I will catch up, I promise! We spent the past few days fighting for supplies and preparing for the

As life would have it, I was unable to pay for the hosting and domain and I lost all of my hard work. There’s probably a way to recover these posts, but at the

South Florida Driving – Not For the Faint of Heart

It’s a well-known fact that drivers in South Florida are considered the worst in America. I like to believe that I am above stereotyping, so I chose not to give that rumor the time day when I moved here. Mistake. I have never been in a car accident, not once in my life (knock on

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day One

Psalm 1 I love the imagery in this chapter. When we remain obedient to God, we are like a tree planted near the water. We bear fruit in season, and our leaves don’t die. Everything we do succeeds. I’m doing a little challenge for myself, one Psalm a day, everyday for the whole book -150

Evil Xbox Controller

Confession. I cannot, for the life of me, work the stupid Xbox controller. The reason is a complete mystery, not only to me, but to my family as well. They watch me throw a tantrum and yell at the console as the buttons refuse to do what I want, when I want it. It’s not

Dreams

What’s your dream? This has always been a struggle for me. Everyone has a dream right? That something they love to do, or that passion that holds their heart captive . At the very least, everyone is supposedly good at something, so if passion is missing, we should all have some kind of talent to
