When Family is Not Everything | Following Jesus When He Calls

Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Hello again. Today's post is titled "When Family is Not Everything." This post is a very hard post for me to write because I have wrestled with this for a long, long time in my personal life. Culturally speaking the phrase "family is everything" is pretty much widely adopted and accepted throughout every culture that I can think of. Ideally families provide a sense of identity, acceptance, feelings of security and belonging. Even so, ideal concepts are not always the reality, so I am sharing why I believe God led me away from my immediate family, my personal struggles with that, and why we should follow Jesus when he calls us to even if it means distancing yourselves from relatives. In Luke 18: 29-30, Jesus said,
Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the Kingdom, who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life.

Some GOOD News | The Gospel of Jesus Christ

Sunday, July 12, 2020
This morning I awoke with good news on my heart, the best news one could ever receive was literally the first mediation of my heart. The good news I'm referring to is the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am just so humbled and filled with joy at the free gift that is available to anyone who has the humility and courage to receive it. I believe that this is such a good time to go back to the basics with all the confusion, hatred, and chaos evident all around the world. The good news is based on love, because God is love. The love we all long for that will fulfill our every need and fill us with a hope and peace we could never imagine. I've also created a video for this blog that you can watch here.

The God of Justice

Monday, June 1, 2020
Hello everyone. Today I've titled my post The God of Justice and I wanted to share how I have recently been seeking to understand God’s justice and some biblical verses/principles that I've been meditating on. I was planning to do a testimony regarding the family dysfunction and abuse that I endured and how I'm unpacking the trauma of the past and reconciling that with my faith in God and His word, however, I wanted to share this post first because it is so relevant right now.

Fully Understanding God's Love & Will for His Followers

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Hi everyone. Today I am sharing a post on Fully Understanding God's Love and His Will for His Followers. I hope you all are seriously taking this time of social isolation to examine your hearts, your life, and your priorities. I am sharing this because I have struggled with huge disappointments in life and heartbreaks that were no fault of my own and others that were absolutely a result of my choices. Unfortunately, most people have a superficial and incorrect understanding of God's love. I'm not a pastor or a teacher, so I've collected a lot of verses, so you can discern for yourself. 

The heart of it is that we would not like someone to just say they love us in words alone and not take the time to understand us or find out the ways that we feel loved. God extended the gift of salvation because he wants a personal relationship with us and for us to be a part of His Kingdom.

Pleasant Surprises In the Midst of Trouble

Friday, March 20, 2020

Hello everyone. It's been an interesting time. I obviously don't have to inform anyone about the impact of the Corona Virus on communities around the world, so I won't. I just wanted to share my thoughts and my surprise to the responses of so many people during this time. 

Initially I could feel the fear, worry and uncertainty everywhere I went so tangibly. It was like I could even feel it through my screen via social media. It was such a shock how quickly everything changed and it felt like the world just stopped for a moment. Then panic set in as most people swarmed the stores to ensure that they would have enough food and supplies. Some people even allowed the panic and uncertainty of the moment fuel them to selfishly hoard as much as was permitted. But the negative responses aren't the motivation of my post today.

New Year. New Thing. New Perspective.

Wednesday, January 1, 2020

Happy New Year, everyone! I wanted to start this New Year off with a faith blog post. This one is titled New Year. New Thing. New Perspective. I remember before the start of this past season of my life, I kept seeing the following Bible verse from Isaiah 43:19:

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
New Thing New Perspective

New Year. New Thing. New Perspective.

At first I was hopeful about the promise found in Isaiah 43:19. I truly believed that God was showing me that he was going to deliver me from my dysfunctional situation. I wondered what that "new thing" would entail. I sure didn't anticipate the trials and pain that came along with allowing God to tear down the old things in order to prepare a way for the new thing. And I didn't know it at the time, but what I needed more than anything to embrace this move of God was a new perspective to stay encouraged and keep going with the right attitude.

Facing Temptation | A Moment of Weakness

Monday, April 8, 2019
I want to share with you guys what I learned after I had recent trial concerning facing temptation and a moment of weakness. I never imagined that I would be sharing my faith this much on a blog. It just sort of happened. I envisioned having a lifestyle blog showcasing green beauty products, makeup looks, throwing in some motherhood topics, and maybe a little talk about my faith here and there.
