Don’t Despise the Call

don27tdespisethecall

I have been doing a read-the-Bible-in-a-year program for 2019 and it has been really interesting. They mix it up in the sense that it isn’t read Genesis through the end, they give you an Old Testament and a New Testament every day and it has been great as it keeps it interesting. Which I think will be invaluable once we get to the whole Deuteronomy and Leviticus thing. LOL! You all know what I am talking about.

But as I was reading through Exodus the other morning, this story really grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go.

Why Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ Disturbs Me

ariana grande

Ariana Grande is a queen in the pop community. From her sassy ponytail, to the fact that her songs constantly and consistently climb the charts. Many would tell you that she is a woman they took up to.

While I’ve never been one to seek out that kind of music, I do occasionally enjoy some secular pop. Especially when it hits the spot for musicality. Hello, Imagine Dragons. But I tend to be careful of lyrics that are usually overtly or sexually explicit.

But I do work in a secular workplace where ‘new pop’ is the radio station of choice, so I often hear all the new hits. And when I heard Ariana Grande’s new song, my stomach turned over.Read More »

Where’s Your Head At?

where's your head at

This is something that the Lord has really been impressing on my heart lately in so many ways.

You see, last year, I went through several hard periods of busyness, difficult times with my job, stressful periods where I had put too much on myself. I hesitate to use the word Depression because I know there are some people who struggle with this greatly, but honestly, it felt like there was a black cloud hanging over my head. I would come home at night and cry. All the time.Read More »

My Word // 2019

Gah! I don’t even know where to start with this one, honestly. It’s so multifaceted and somewhat pigeon-holed into what I feel like it means that I hope I can make sense. When I got my word for the year, I was honestly a bit baffled. It seemed at first to be the antithesis of what I felt like I needed to be doing. Which was more or less to take a step back, spend more time in the Lord’s presence, and rest. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this word really isn’t the opposite of that.

At first thought, we think of many things. Strong, brave, fighting. Read More »

So You Want To Be A Creator

creator

What no one ever tells you about following your dreams.

When it comes to being a creator, specifically in my case, building businesses from the ground up. . . there is so much no one tells you. All the how-to posts, the “get rich quick” mentality, the excitement and the hype. Some people look at the Instagram, Youtube and Facebook creators and think they have it made. That they got rich quick and found the answer to success. And there’s a part of us that really wants to see that dream come true for ourselves. Read More »

Say Yes To No

Say yes to no

 

How is that little conundrum for you? Honestly, I am writing this post for myself, so if you see me not doing what I preach, call me out. Nicely, of course. 😉

But honestly, when did it become a bad thing to say no? Where did we fall off the tracks of setting boundaries and let our fences be blown over without a fight? Since medieval times, territories and boundaries were fiercely fought for. Someone steps a toe on your property? Hit them over the head! Well, those were called the dark ages for a reason, but where did it become a wrong move to stand up for your own boundaries? No murdering or hitting over the head necessary. Read More »
