Simplify

I just deleted four paragraphs. What I just typed was beautiful, but it completely negated the central theme and most important message of this blog, so I deleted. And no, I don’t feel any kind of way about it at all. #kanyeshrug One word has resonated in my spirit on repeat for the last two…

Adulting: I Don’t Feel Like It

Addition, subtraction, steering, and makeup application…  My morning drive is usually a test to see how well I can multi-task (don’t judge me), but now we’re adding math in the mix too, Chris?  My brain crunched numbers trying to figure out how many miles on average I drive per day and week therefore configuring how…

The Silent Treatment

I’m a believer.  I’m a worship leader.  I’m a low-key, unofficial counselor.  Blah, blah, blah.  I’m a human.  Today, I am going to be honest even if it makes me look a little less spiritual. | The Silent Treatment | I recently saw a post on Facebook that read: “Ladies, which one are you… temper…

Keep the Change

This is it.  This is the last part of my three-part series on change.  If you are behind, go read Don’t Ignore the Change and Necessary Change to catch up. Disclaimer: As I mentioned last week and the week before, the introduction may be a bit lengthy, but please read all of it even if…

Grace to Finish

I anxiously stood by the time clock occasionally glancing to check the time.  I was only one minute away from one of my greatest accomplishments.  After a treacherous 60 seconds which felt more like an eternity, I positioned my hand in the holster of the time clock ready to do what I had done four…

Following Directions

“I don’t know.”  That was my entire response when asked what I was going to do next. Usually that response would be a defense mechanism for what I really know in my heart but am afraid to speak out of my mouth.  In this case, I really didn’t know, and the fact that I didn’t…

The Right Fit: Where do I Belong?

Unintentionally, I guess I have started a two-part series as today’s post will piggyback off last week’s post The Wrong Fit.  If you haven’t read last week’s post, you may want to start there. | The Right Fit: Where do I belong? | I am going to speak from the current state of my heart…

Sustain.

I wasn’t going to share today. As a matter of fact, this is now my fourth time starting from scratch. Each week, I share with you all from a vulnerable place…I share my real life. Truthfully speaking, I didn’t want to be vulnerable this week so I wasn’t going to post at all. “Sharing my…

What’s the Point?

Disclaimer:  I’ll go ahead and admit off top that this blog may not be well constructed.  Inspired by a scripture that I couldn’t shake and a series of “Aha” moments, I am just going to type my jumbled thoughts on the page and pray that they make sense to you like they do to me. …

I Can Do All Things

“Sometimes you just have to risk it and when you walk on water, God will hold you up.” -Pastor Cedric Rouson | I Can Do All Things | I’ll come back that quote soon. A few days ago, I polled my social media friends and followers asking them, “[Is] anyone else shaking in your boots…
