When a new month begins, I often enter it with anxiousness and regret. I find myself anxious about how the month will unfold yet regretful about what failed to happen prior. Anxiety Continue reading
Many pursue it, but few find it.
Keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful , pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising Him always .

How is your Hope?
This is a question that you may not come across, or ask yourself often, but I’d like you to think about it, just for a moment.
When you reflect on your life, right now, are you more hopeful that goodness is your ultimate outcome, or are you more hopeless, or, afraid and timid about the unknown aspects of your future?
I ask the question because it is one that I have trained myself to consider often. What I am really assessing for myself is, am I expecting good in my life, even Continue reading
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
The days we are living in are the type of times where we can easily allow ourselves to be so consumed by things that we have no control over, that we neglect what we do have control over.
So tonight, I am interrupting my scheduled post to sincerely check in with you and ask each of you,
Violent. Loving. Abusive. Encouraging. Accusatory. Forgiving. Cunning. Kind. Persuasive. Sincere.

Words of Lovers flowing like honey, sweet, deliberate, and slow.
When a tree is preparing for its renewal season, it sheds its leaves. Liberated from the weight of the leaves, the tree, and its branches are free to rest and replenish. Fall and Winter seasons, though wet, cold, gloomy, and uncomfortable prepare the tree for the vibrancy of new life that is sure to bloom forth in Spring.
While the beauty of Fall leaves makes us gasp, we rarely realize we are witnessing death on display.
Worry is is the Chief Thief of our hope! Worry is a stalker, each time we get up the courage to believe again, to start moving forward, AGAIN, here comes worry badgering us to focus on the wrong things! Continue reading
Happy April!! …. Do you know what you REALLY want?
This piece I wrote for Kingdom Daughters United might help!
It’s not only a new month, but also a new quarter! A new quarter + a new month is a wonderful opportunity for you and I to evaluate our progress so far this year. With 3 more quarters left to make 2018 our best year, this is the perfect time for reflecting on the lessons that we’ve been blessed to encounter in the 1st quarter of this year.
Proper reflection is the pathway that leads to proper application of our learning opportunities. Proper application

Our thoughts are powerful and they have an aroma that fill our minds. They either impart pleasant attractive scents that lead to enthusiasm, hope, and productivity or they impart putrid rotting scents that lead to lethargy, discouragement, and stagnation. The aroma that our thoughts give off impacts others through our words and actions. See, all thoughts eventually transform into words and/or actions. So every place our voices are heard, we are either stinking up the atmosphere with negativity or releasing a sweet smelling fragrance of hope, faith and strength. Continue reading
Regret is looking for you. It wants to suck the life out of your hopes, goals, and dreams for 2018. It wants to remind you of all of the things you set out to do this time last year, but you did not accomplish in 2017. It wants to prove to you that you are not enough, and it wants to convince you that there is no use in even trying because you will end up with the same results.
What I want you to know is that regret is a LIAR. You are enough, you don’t have to stay chained to the should-haves, could-haves, and would-haves of your life. Your freedom has already been divinely purchased, and it is God’s will that you walk in your freedom, be released from guilt, shame, and defeat and begin to move forward. Continue reading
