Lord Help My Unbelief

   Faith can be a tricky thing. The world’s view of a Christian’s faith is that of a person declaring they believe in Christ as Lord as opposed to Allah or following the teachings of Buddha or the many other religions that are out there. Even some churches may hold the view that faith is… Continue reading Lord Help My Unbelief

The One Where I Talk About Sex…and God

I find myself being ministered to through love music. Not music necessarily written for worshipping the Most High. But music that exudes intimacy, passion, and love. These qualities are the essence of intimacy with Christ. And so I can’t help but think of Him when I hear these songs. I feel His Spirit drawing me… Continue reading The One Where I Talk About Sex…and God

Musings on Settling…

I sat across from my friend of 7+ years on her comfortable, homey sofa and tried to ignore the figure sprawled out on the floor at our feet. Her boyfriend, who was intently watching some sort of cartoon (Batman maybe?) on what I assumed to be her laptop, was not even worth conversing with in my opinion.… Continue reading Musings on Settling…

Sunday evening, just as I anticipated, I found myself surrounded by beauty.  Glistening legs, sparkling eyes, thick, alluring hair of various textures and styles.  Beautiful brown women donning dresses ranging from cute cocktails to elegant formal wear.  Brothers in fine suits and attire with crisp, clean locks or heads freshly cut were a site to… Continue reading Sex is Worth the Wait.

My Own Personal Cinderella Story

Psalm 45:10-15 Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention: Forget your people and your father’s house. Let the king be enthralled by your beauty; Honor him, for he is your lord. The city of Tyre will come with a gift, People of wealth will seek your favor. All glorious is the princess within her chamber; Her gown is interwoven with gold.… Continue reading My Own Personal Cinderella Story

Valentine’s Day: From a Single’s Perspective

Well it’s that time again…V-Day.  Every year it catches me off guard.  I know there are many singles who dread the approaching holiday year after year and it’s on their radar as early as January.  There are many who cringe at the various business advertisements pushing their product of flowers, candy, and the standard teddy… Continue reading Valentine’s Day: From a Single’s Perspective
