Beauty is in the Inner Workings

About four months ago, I did what’s called the “big chop”! That’s a phrase that is popularly used among African American women who have decided to forgo hair relaxers that would alter our natural curl to make it straight. For decades I have used hair relaxers, and my hair was somewhat a medium length. But,…

It’s a Shift Made Room For Right

At times it seems the most difficult to recover from a broken heart as we are still staring at the broken pieces.  It’s only when we choose to look up and peer beyond them that we can see any hope to climb up and over the heap.  Now is that time!  The broken pieces of…

Prayer: An Excursion for Greater

I have a special affinity for transparency. So with that being said, I was not birthed out of the womb as a great orator or gifted communicator, where later at five years old, I was rocking a toy mic impressing family members. It took some time encouragement and prodding from The Lord to get me…

Priceless Artifact Being Restored

Transformation is taking place, Moving you towards a Godly space, Where you won’t want to do an about face. Within yourself you are rising higher, Wherein the best in you will transpire. Though God’s miracles work best, Through which many great blessings manifest, This process also includes moments of correction That are never intended for…

Overcome Rubble of Trouble

In a world where many things seem to be falling apart before our eyes, there is still hope in the God of Hope. As we interact with some around us, we are subject to the jagged edges of their pain getting caught in the tangles of our own, stirring up circumstances that rip away what…

Rise Above Uncertainty by Pull of an Upward Gaze

But our faithful Father in heaven revealed something to me……

Until Your Change Arrives

I had a few conversations that touched upon the fact that the most recent generations don’t like to wait. We (including my generation, though not the most recent) want everything instantly. And in many things nowadays, that can be done with a quick flip of a plastic card and/or with a click of a button,…

Just When You Least Expect It…

…opportunity can be suddenly be placed in front of you! During what may seem like the most inopportune moment; a time which you’ve been praying you could get out of, or be released into a more ideal situation. But, you, child of God, are equipped with God-given gifts that cannot… and I repeat… cannot be…

Prayer: Comfort and Healing for Charleston SC

Though it’s happening slower than we thought in light of some recent racially divided events, let us dare to believe that in the Oneness of God, the world will someday soon operate under a covering of colorblind love. We are all people. We all contain red blood. We all require oxygen. We all need love….
