Pain is inevitable, but God is sufficient.
Another year has passed. This past year may have been one of the best years of your life! You might have achieved some of your major goals, lived in the moment more, made new friendships, started a new job, or just simply experienced more of God and all that He has to offer you. But … Continue reading New Year, Same God.
This case is a big step forward for justice and equality for the black community. Over the last few years, we have seen footage of unarmed black men getting shot by white police officers and convictions seem to be rare. Now let me be clear because these types of topics tend to be divisive. I … Continue reading My Thoughts On The Amber Guyger Trial
If I'm being honest: far too often prayer tends to be my last thought whenever I'm overwhelmed or stressed. My first inclination is to think through how I can solve the problem. Keyword: I. For many of you reading this, this is likely your thought as well, but God desires for us to rely on … Continue reading Don’t Just Think About it, Pray About It.
