The thunderous sound of a Black man protesting, “Save Harlem Now”, alerted passer-byes that we were walking on Harlem’s ground and that the community will not be moved. On the corner, stood a line of international tourists waiting to get inside the historical Abyssinian Baptist Church. In the era of new age thought and religion, […]

September 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what He will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this. Habakkuk 2:1-3 God wants us to live a life of purpose, according to His plan. Yet, with so many distractions, it’s easy to […]

KNOWING THE VOICE OF GOD

September 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27 KJV This scripture clearly infers that we, as God’s sheep, should innately hear God’s voice. Yet we are daily faced with the battle between flesh and spirit, often compromising our inherent ability to hear. Amidst the all-encompassing static and interference, […]

WHAT THE VOICE OF GOD DOES NOT SOUND LIKE

“The mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.” For many years, I lived prisoner to guilt and depression. Ill equipped to fight the battle of the mind; I was far too often overcome by a wave of debased emotions, creating a pattern of self-deprecation. In hindsight, I now see we are more than […]

LET GO OF LONELINESS TODAY

I’ll get straight to it. Yesterday I took a much needed time out with the Lord. In my prayer closet (lol), He instructed me to reach out to someone struggling with loneliness. If you are that person, know that He hears your cry! You’ve been crying out in search of a companion or a person […]

Congratulations, you’ve made it through another week! How are your nerves holding up? Living in this crazy world, we are confronted with situations that can push the best of us to loose our cool.

FASTING FOR THE WILL OF GOD

September 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

The notion of fasting is a controversial topic amongst believers. Some Christians swear by fasting and others negate its necessity.  Understandably so because there are many Biblical paradoxes that can easily get lost in translation. For example, the Bible teaches: For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life […]

THE ROAD TO PEACE

I woke up Saturday morning lazy, yet hopeful about having an eventful day. Resisting the looming presence of a familiar heaviness, I watched two episodes of “House” in accordance with my current status of binge watching TV. Longing for its intoxicating aroma to permeate my apartment with the comfort of my mother who’d recently visited, I brewed a […]

GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE THE ARTIST YOU WERE CREATED TO BE

September 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

As a small town girl from Virginia, I had childhood dreams of becoming a talk show host and actress. My parents encouraged me to be courageous and trust God so I invested my undergraduate years of study in the Arts. I then made the decision to pursue a postgraduate degree in Theater because furthering my […]
