The Beauty Of Adversity.

Some of the most beautiful things are birthed in or after adversity, thus becoming a symbol of hope and redemption. It’s crucial to note that “In God, the worst things are never the last things for those who believe.”. So I choose to believe that my present and my future will surpass that of my…

I Am Brave

Nelson Mandela: “Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” I’m learning more and more how essential bravery is because I’m convinced Generational Trauma has to end with ME. I constantly remind myself that…

The God Who Sees Me

Isaiah 40:28-31 28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. 29 He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. 30 Even…

Journey to Freedom from Rejection

There was a situation recently that triggered a deep level of rejection in me. For a time after, I found myself rolling down the familiarly annoying road of rejection.

Perspective

Good perspective is not the absence of pain but the ability to see hope in circumstances that are pain-filled. It is the ability to believe that God is good, even when nothing seems to dictate that He is. It is the ability to trust that you are loved, even when you feel unseen & unknown….

Beautiful Rewards

2018 was me falling, super hard. If it wasn’t for Jesus, my family, my loved ones, & the church I honestly am not sure if I’d be alive today. I know that seems super melodramatic but honestly, it’s the truth. There were days where I felt like I was not sane and days when I…

The Cage Free Journey

I’ve been learning that mistakes are not the end of the world, and that true failure happens when you do not get up and learn from your mistakes. God isn’t afraid of my mistakes. Therefore neither should I be. He’s been showing me that my greatest desire and delight should be to live in intimacy…
