Find Time, Give Time

Time can be tricky, can’t it? I have spent my whole life wishing for one moment to hurry and arrive and another moment to slow down and pause. In a few weeks the entire world has felt like it’s at a stand-still because of one common thing, COVID-19. You may have been like me and filled gaps of your day looking at thousands of status updates and memes on social media, or have read hundreds of news articles and watched dozens of videos. After a few days of this going on I asked myself something. Was I making the best...

Prayer Changes Me

    I seriously just told someone that I wasn’t God’s friend the other day because He was ALLLLL the way in my business and I was frustrated that He was answering my prayer so quickly.

Go ahead, turn it on. You know you want to! “Brown skin girl, Ya skin just like pearls. The best thing in all the world. I never trade you for anybody else…”

Jesus Saves or Nah?

I have quietly observed via social media and conversations around me when individuals have expressed their opinions about Kanye West and the sincerity of his relationship with God. I have kept my opinions to myself. However, with the release of his latest musical project, Jesus is King, and the growing fame of #KanyeSundayService I just have something I want to ask you. Does Jesus save or nah? I ask this question because it seems like some people have an issue with particular individuals claiming salvation. I’m sure you, like me, have a prayer list of people close to you that...
