When Fathers Fail You

“Father to the fatherless, defender of widows— this is God, whose dwelling is holy.” Psalms 68:5 I believe that God always makes a way to take care of you and looking back, I can always see the people He brought into my life to guard me and to guide me.  My dad went to jail when… Continue reading When Fathers Fail You

Bloom with Grace

WELL, if you know anything about me, it's that when I don't write, I'm avoiding a process. I thought that maybe if I pretended I was over it, didn't care, then it wouldn't hurt. And man am I wrong again. But then it's beautiful because I get to pour out these random words, make them… Continue reading Bloom with Grace

Hold Her Arms Up

And then to those around me…. I expect them to walk without failure, to be kind, to be present, to be available, to love me, to support me, to protect me. Yet, I haven’t quite figured out how to do all those things for myself, much less for others.

Embrace the Mess

MAY 1ST YALL! If you know anything about me- May 1st is my favorite along with May 30th, my birthday.  Since my 18th birthday, birthdays have been a huge deal for me, both good and bad.

I want to apologize to you on behalf of America. You were brought here to have a life, a chance at your dreams, in hopes that this place would be better than where your parents brought you from. In most ways, you are safer and have a greater chance at making something of yourself. But… Continue reading An Apology on Behalf of America 

The struggle of “Not worthy”

Total honest moment. It’s 12:54 AM & I suddenly have the desire to write…. When I have been avoiding it for 2 weeks. TMI…   maybe it’s my monthly friend that has me in a mood and emotions all over the place and confused thoughts and rambling and the desire to do nothing at all…. (sorry… Continue reading The struggle of “Not worthy”

I think I am finally clean

Life has a funny way of happening. It chooses its victims and its victors, and simply happens. In life’s toughest seasons, I have found that worship is the key to getting up and regaining strength. Worship is not only just singing to God, but also a state of being, the confidence that God is good,… Continue reading I think I am finally clean

The Test of the Thought Pt. 1

Let’s take it back to last week. Monday was terrible. I went to work and by 4:30 I was so stressed- I cried, hid in the bathroom and walked around aimlessly until 5:30 CLOCK OUT TIME!!! Tuesday…. By 10:00 AM I was ready to walk out because I couldn’t handle the stress and the environment… Continue reading The Test of the Thought Pt. 1
