Getting Aqcuainted With Grace

One would think grace would be something to be received and understood at the onset of Christianity.  If only it were a class you took at the beginning of your enrollment on the path of truth.  I would have surely signed up, checked off my checklist and aimed for the A that decorated my academic career… Continue reading Getting Aqcuainted With Grace

The Trade (Poem)

Can I trust you with my mess? The bruised brokenness of smelly sweat? The scarred woundedness that oozes green gross disgusting stuff? The pores on my skin open with it and no matter how many bandages I try to cover them with, there just never seem to be enough Enough I’ve had–enough I’ve come–to the… Continue reading The Trade (Poem)

The Webs We Weave

Have you ever done something you regret? Like really regret? But even though you regret it in time you do it again. And again. And again… Romans‬ ‭7:15, 19‬  “For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I… Continue reading The Webs We Weave

Overcoming the Winter Seasons of Life

I looked at my phone and was surprised to see the message on the screen.  My friend shared some news about her current plight as a single parent of now 2.  Of course I called instead of replying via text because that’s what good friends do.  We don’t respond to such sensitive, weighty matters via text.… Continue reading Overcoming the Winter Seasons of Life

His Law is Love

I’ve never considered myself to be a user.  You know, someone who depletes others’ time, energy, service, etc. for the sake of meeting their own needs.  For the sake of getting what they want…only with no intention of giving back.  I’ve always tried to give back.  Even if it was in a different way than… Continue reading His Law is Love

Marriage at Its Finest

Saturday evening I was wandering aimlessly as my day’s plans had changed and I suddenly found myself with too much time on my hands (I know, I know, poor me). I was trying not to give in to temptation so prior to the cinema starting I made a last ditch effort and texted a friend… Continue reading Marriage at Its Finest

The Fight of My Life

When I look back on my testimony with Christ I struggle with the messiness of it all.  There was no perfect Christian home to serve as the foundation of my faith (I mean really is there ever?).  There was not even an ideal 2-parent family setup with a Cosby-like appeal.  Instead there was struggle and darkness and well meaning… Continue reading The Fight of My Life

A Slow Fade

I’ve been living this surrendered life for a little over 10 years now and so have many in my community.  One thing about a long lasting covenant relationship of any kind, whether it’s romantic, platonic or a love relationship with Jesus, is that that relationship is susceptible to…hmmm, well, how can I put this?  Let’s just say it.  Boredom. … Continue reading A Slow Fade

The Single Moments of Life

I had one of those “single” moments the other day.  You know the kind…well maybe you don’t.  But the kind that causes the desire for a mate to overwhelm you so much so that in that moment your heart is overshadowed with pain.  All of a sudden I longed for a man’s arms to be… Continue reading The Single Moments of Life

Online Dating: The Verdict is Still Out

So I did it.  I joined millions of Americans and signed up on an online dating site.  Now this is not my first time…actually it’s my 3rd in all honesty.  But this is the first time I didn’t feel like I was stepping out of God’s will.  The other 2 times I knew that is… Continue reading Online Dating: The Verdict is Still Out
