Why Fake Love Teaches Real Lessons

Words are powerful. They have the power to speak life and death over ourselves, express compassion to someone in chaos, and even make deals binding. The words we speak hold power, value, and hope if we use them correctly and follow up with their supportive actions. However, saying and not showing what we articulated yields a completely different response. Which brings us to our topic: love.The word “love” once stood for an emotion, bond, or connection that was so unique it reserved a respect and league of its own. However, nowadays it tends to be thrown out by people that can easily state it but are somehow clueless of its meaning or seemingly incapable of reciprocating it. But before you...

Stay Focused on Your Faith and Not Your Feelings

Life: a beautiful compilation of success, suffering, trials, triumphs, joy, and pain. Though each day we open our eyes is a blessing, sometimes we find ourselves overwhelmed with the burden of all that we can’t control, understand, or seemingly overcome. Truth is, some seasons and situations require a constant effort to refrain from being held hostage by fear, feelings, and frustration. In those times whenever we are emotional or in the midst of a storm, our feelings only seem to intensify. It’s imperative that we hold on to our faith and the facts of our lessons. Pause from the pressures and pain, silence the mind, do not rush into reaction, and cling to clarity and wisdom. It‘s our obedience and...

We Rise Because Whose We Are

The person you were, the person you currently are, and the person you were created to be are three D I F F E R E N T people! Some of us are rising, but are scared to truly shine because we do not have confidence in our authority or we fear that others do not see us for who we’ve become. However, truth of the matter is that our authenticity and assignment is much more important than outside approval or internal acceptance. Not everyone will understand or respect the power of repentance, redemption, enlightenment, refinement, or transformation. Ascend, move forward, and prune anyway. We may experience fear, discomfort, and question the promise and instructions God gave us. Be obedient,...

No Rain, No Flowers

There were times in my life where I was lost, a loner, and a fool. Days where I drowned in self loathing and wondered if I’d ever be able to keep my head above water. Nights where I questioned how it was humanly possible to produce so many tears. As tempting as it once was to look back at those times with bitterness, I can’t help but see all the blessings and beauty that came from brokenness. It’s in those times that I learned the most and gained the empathy and endurance that I have today. It’s those times that taught me to let go of my ego and focus on my emotional health and eternity. Trust me whenever I...

Grow and Outgrow

Isn’t it ironic how as we grow, we simultaneously outgrow. The things that once enraged us suddenly don’t warrant our slightest reaction. The things, people, music, mindsets, outfits, and influences we once believed we couldn’t live without brought the most peace to our lives after we removed them. The way we viewed rejection, happiness, worth, and success shifted after we realized the complexity of protection, joy, and alignment. You see, our journey is less about finding out who we are. It’s about losing the idea and pressure of who we and the world think we ought to be. It’s about tackling our toxic traits, uncovering our inner strength, discerning actualization from conditioning, and aligning ourselves with purpose, passion, and spiritual...
