Mirror Mirror, I Don’t Like What I See

Ok, so this isn’t me in the mirror but this is my shadow/profile 😁. As warped as it looks, it isn’t far from how I see myself. You see, I have a pretty distorted view of myself. The image I see in the physical mirror and the mirror in my mind is often not what…

Where I’ve Been…

Hey friends, it’s been a while, I know. I should have updated you sooner. But I didn’t. I’m sorry. So here we are, almost 5 months since I shared from my heart to yours. The first couple months of 2020 were challenging for me. Towards the end of 2019, I was uncertain about writing and…

My heart sagged. Self-pity lurched. I can feel envy rising in me. I caught myself wanting the…

Thinking Right Thoughts

There’s a battle I contend with everyday and it starts in my mind. I have to grab hold of my thoughts before it grabs and pulls me into wrong thinking about myself and well…pretty much everything.  A thinker by design, I analyze everything to death. My thoughts can drain me if I don’t grab hold…

There was a long stretch in my life when I literally had no joy. None. Zilch. Nada. Of course I didn’t understand what joy meant until a good 15 years after I asked God to be in my life. Here it is. Joy is a supernatural by product of faith in Christ. Unlike happiness it…

Got Problems?

The size of our problems doesn’t matter when we know the size of our God. He created the universe and everything in it. Nothing is too hard for Him.
