“Most people don’t wait long enough on me.” –God Wow! How accurate is that sentence? We’ll admit it; A lot of us here are impatient. We hate long lines, we dread traffic, we get frustrated when God says “no,” but we really feel pained when he says “not yet!” For some reason, hearing “not yet” hurts more than hearing “no.” We think it’s because, when God says “not yet,” we know the good thing is coming,...

In the beginning stages of a relationship, we need to keep an eye out for “red flags.” We may dismiss them altogether, but they help to warn or caution us. Red flags also help us identify situations that have the potential to harm us, emotionally, mentally or physically.   However, It’s not always easy when we begin to notice these red flags appearing in our relationships … It’s much easier to rationalize them away. So...

Early this week, on Monday morning, Parisians and visitors from around the globe alike watched in horror as the spire of the Notre Dame, one of the world’s most well-known cathedrals, collapsed into the building as flames engulfed its entirety. If you had seen any of the videos circulating social media or the news, you know that it looked like a scene from “The Day After Tomorrow” or “World War Z.” It was apocalyptic. Although...

Love is a beautiful thing. People love a person, a particular meal, a musician, a destination, etc. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines ‘love’ as warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion; the object of attachment, devotion, or admiration.    In our society, the word love is used so casually it can be challenging to discern true love and how it translates into God’s love for us as believers. Society can love something one minute and despise it the next. On...

“No man will ever want me, and I’m a single mom.” “No man will ever be good enough for my child, other than his father.” Does this sound familiar? If we are honest with ourselves, these thoughts have crossed our minds as single mothers. Can we tell you about the story of Mary and Joseph, the parents of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? No, not the story of ‘Mary had a little lamb,’ but...

Sad, but true: I once had a boyfriend who told me if Jesus came back, he would just hold onto me to get into heaven. I almost think he was serious. That should’ve been a red flag. But that’s a story for another time. If it were that easy, we’d all live however we wanted and when the trumpet sounded, frantically search for the most sanctified-looking person in the vicinity like a game of eternal...

I didn’t do anything this time. Largely, I am accustomed to being course-corrected by God because of some decision that I made that was contrary to His will. I’m used to the repercussions of my departures from His path, but this time I was hard pressed to find out the reason for this wilderness transition. As a result, more times than not, I uttered, “What is the deal? What did I do to get here?”...

I could hardly believe that it was my turn to say “yes to the dress”! It all really didn’t hit me until I flew back home after the engagement to California and began to think of all of the natural and spiritual things that needed to be done in order for our engagement season to be fruitful. Yes, you have to pick a date for the wedding, send out invitations, select your bridal party, etc....

“I’ve missed you”… These words penetrated my soul in a manner possible only when my Creator speaks. I had heard them whispered to me as I reclined in the back seat of my mother’s car on a cold November night in 2014 feeling heartbroken and defeated. I wish I could attribute my mental state on that day to someone other than myself, but I can’t. While in the middle of one of the most transitional seasons of...

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about “Christian” dating? Many would begin to spew out all of things one should and/or should not do while seeking to court and eventually marry a mate. Whether cultural or Kingdom, a bulk of the usual responses to such an inquisition will be sound counsel for one to consider. As a single person, you probably are tired of hearing married couples tell you...
