Before You Keep Someone a Prisoner of Their Past, Consider This

We get it. The world is filled with bad people and people aren't always as they seem. It would be naive to think that everyone grows from their experiences or even commits to a change that would yield maturity and personal growth. Some people enjoy the power they feel from hurting or bringing chaos to others, many do not want to address their toxic behavior because that is how they get their attention, and others simply just exude evil. But when do we stop and remember that sometimes even good people make bad choices or can lose their way? Is it that hard to believe a chapter of someone’s life doesn’t dictate their whole story? Have we forgotten that time,...

To the Loved Ones Gone Too Soon

Sorry for your loss. My condolences. They’re in a better place. No more pain. Time heals all. Those were all the phrases people told me the day I had to let you go forever. The last day I was able to see your face. The day a piece of my heart left with you. It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and it only proved true whenever I realized the picture and the memory attached was all I had left of you. I’d like to say I went and lived each day in celebration of your life, but we both know that would be a lie. Although I was so happy for you because I knew you...

The Battle Is Not Yours

Don't give up. Quitters never win. Stand up for yourself. Prove your point. You're just going to let it end this way? When the going gets tough, we need to get tougher. Oh, the advice we get whenever we are struggling, suffering, confused, betrayed, afraid, or drained. The situations where we foolishly think we know what's best or try to take direction from people that have never experienced where we are or what we're going through. To say that life can be hard is an understatement in itself. In seasons of depression, loss, failure, and trials it truly feels like the weight of the world is sitting on our shoulders. In those times, no matter how much effort we put...

Let Them Be Wrong

Isn't it odd how people can connect and communicate via phone, text, email, or social media platform, but seldom contact people if they have a question, comment, or concern? People can identify, create, and expose problems with others, yet can never seem to self assess and get their own lives together. It's astonishing that so many ignorant people can so confidently, loudly, and incorrectly tell a story that is not their own. Be still and know that there is a reason for even that season. We will all experience the receiving end of this foolishness, but what truly matters is what we walk away with. Can we make right with our lives by letting something or someone be wrong?Let's be...

No, I’m Not Going to Be the Bigger Person

Isn’t it funny how even simple advice like be the bigger person can be analyzed and yield a different response once we open our eyes and become spiritually and mentally mature? That phrase always seems to come up whenever the world is telling us to go one way but our gut and wisdom is rightfully telling us to go the opposite. It's said whenever we’re the ones that have been hurt to our core, yet people think we should just get over it. It's subconsciously presented whenever we know good and well that a season in our life is expired but the court of public opinion believes we should hold on just a little longer. Think about that. Far too...
