When everything around us seems like it’s spiraling out of control … … people often remind us of the Bible passage in which Jesus is sleeping in the storm as his disciples were, for lack of a better phrase, freaking out. We know we need to focus on something during hard times, but Jesus getting some rest while things are seemingly falling apart is normally not helpful. What should catch our attention is why Jesus is...

“For God sent me before you to preserve life.” Genesis 45:5b At times, it may be difficult to accept and trust that God is weaving a plan for your life to prosper you and bring you to an expectant end. When we get to the nuts and bolts of it, most of our difficulty comes from our lack of understanding and acceptance of God’s ways. Isaiah 61:3 tells us “He will give a crown of...

As millennials, it’s easy to get wrapped up in a mindset that says you must be making moves (with digital proof or it never happened) or you aren’t doing anything with your life. Culture has implemented an unwritten rule: That we must “have a life,” primarily in our single season, and the way by which to have a life is to live according to the world. If we went by all the suggestions thrown at...

One of my favorite poems is We Wear the Mask, by Paul Laurence Dunbar. It is such a haunting depiction of how we hide in the midst of many. “In a room of a thousand we can feel like we are in an auditorium of one.” There are so many times that we hide behind “the mask” … And those masks are beautiful aren’t they? They are BEAT, BAKED, and BEARDED to perfection. They cover...

It was one of the most magnificent waterfalls in the world, and he was about to bungee jump. The only thing keeping him from plunging into the rushing waters of the Zambezi was a single cord tied around his ankles. His pounding heart seemed to drown out the mighty waterfall as he heard the instructor behind him shout: “1, 2, 3.. bungee!” He jumped. Within seconds, it felt like he was flying. When God calls...

“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...

Women … No matter the culture, we have had our share of battles when it comes to “defining” what our position, role, title, and even character should or should not be. Societal norms have attempted to place labels and limits upon our shoulders. We are defined by whether we are in the home, or minimized in sectors of business, government, and even religion. Women are often labeled as too emotional, yet a woman is criticized...

Our God is a purposeful God. His word proclaims a divine intentional nature. He created everything and everything with purpose — especially us, His children! “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10) You may be wondering why we are talking about purpose when this is supposed to be an article about health. Great question … As believers, paying attention...

“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies...” Proverbs 31:10 The virtuous woman — or the Proverbs 31 woman — is one of the most talked about and admired women of the Bible. She goes without a name but she is the woman that ladies desire to be like and men desire to find. She is the epitome of grace and virtue, a very rare treasure, a blessing to the...

Not long ago, I was beginning to feel very happy with myself because I finally felt that I come to learn my identity. I started singing a song that spoke to who I am, entitled “I Know Who I Am,” by Sinach. I recognized that I was no longer bound by sin, and inwardly applauded myself for being “woke” in a spiritual sense. Consequently, I took to social media to write a post that really...
