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…

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. Feel rejected → Naval gazing: forcing myself to remember every mistake I’ve made since birth → Feeling unworthy: Shaming myself for the things I’ve done wrong…

Grieving With Hope

In my almost 7 years of being a Christian, the most common narrative of the prophetic words or words of encouragement I receive happens to be “You are a voice for the voiceless”. My only issue with that was that in my past, silence was a requirement for me to survive. Later on, I started…

For every dream breathed on your heart by God is meant to manifest and every tear that flows upon the journey is kept in remembrance. For the mountain,…

Deep waters

Isaiah 43:2(ESVUK) 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,    and the flame shall not consume you. Sometimes I dwell on my painful circumstances more than I do my blessings. It’s not…
