Good soil for planting

In the world of planting, good soil takes extensive preparation. From the adding of healthy matter to the continuous working and removal of debri; the work must be put forth to gain good fertile soil. Good fertile soil being capable of producing an abundance of crops. I'd like to think that this same concept can…

God is greater

This week's gem of wisdom is very short and simple. God is greater than any and every thing that you could ever come up against in your life. He is greater than any storm that you think is going to overtake you. He is stronger than any sin that you think is too tempting to…

Out with the old, in with the new

God has been speaking to me so very loudly to let the old pass away. I'm talking confirmation after confirmation in various conversations with various people. It's been on my heart alot lately which is why I am sharing this very short and sweet gem of wisdom: Let the old pass away and embrace what's…

Stillness

Being still is hard. Harder than I could have ever imagined and harder than anybody has ever made it seem. I say this because I am currently in a season where it is PLAIN and CLEAR that God wants me to practice stillness and I'd be lying if I said it was the least bit…

Discerning distractions is key

In light of me walking into this new year and season focused, it has been my daily prayer to grow in better discerning distractions. I can look back and see that most of the negative things that have happened to me lately were literally meant to distract me and cause me to lose focus. When…

Focused All 2019

2018 for me was something else. Like really something else. I’ve walked (or crawled) through a couple rough storms, had to reevaluate some close relationships, and cutoff toxic ones. All these things took me to a low place. A place of uncertainty and lack of hope. I found myself questioning God’s goodness to me based…

Pray girl, pray

As the year closes, if I could leave any piece of advice to the women in my life it would be: pray girl, pray. Over the past year or so this line has literally become something that I say to myself on a daily. In fact if you were to peek into my prayer journal…

If you lead with fear..

“If you lead with fear, you will most likely fail” I mean just think of the truth in that! I have stories for daysssss of how I allowed fear to lead me and then wreck some beautiful moments and even relationships in my life. I can recall all the things I didn’t do or say…

I Thank God for being God

At a point in my life where I am truly, truly humbled and grateful for God being God. Humbled to repentance for my tendencies to place myself in the judging seat and to have judged others harshly and wrongly on so many occasions. A lot of times I can make up in my mind how…

A heart of openness

A heart of openness. This seems to be the lesson I am to learn in this season. A heart that’s really, really open. Open to the thought of things not going the way that I imagined. Open to things not turning out exactly the way that I preplanned in my head. The thought that maybe,…
