Shifting my perspective on stressful situations

Today’s verse talks about anxiety specifically, and how God cares for us. I want to also offer some things that you can do if you do happen to be struggling with anxiety too. First, the most important thing….

I am the light of the world

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Throw the first stone…

If Jesus showed this woman, and in essence you and I, grace and hope (John 3:16; 8:10-11) How can we not do the same for others? A couple of days ago, we talked about loving our neighbors as ourself. I think about this too, and if we can see that we are not perfect, how can we not offer that grace to others?

Be strong and courageous…..

Real courage arises when we have faith, and we know that we know that we know that God is with us. We can lean into the strength and the wisdom that God offers. And through that we can also feel the power of bravery.

Love Your Neighbor As Yourself….

In our world today we can become consumed by ourselves. Especially with our phones, we can have our heads down and not even engage with each other. I want to share a story that literally happened a couple of days ago.

We love because He first loved us

Today is about God’s fearless love, our verse today is short and sweet and well, it’s kind of a representation of how God loves you. His love doesn’t come with conditions or all of these extra things, he just loves you unconditionally.

Under Construction…

I have always said that there are beautiful signs that God will give us if we are open to listening, hearing, and seeing them. It requires us to be able to look within, take note, and also be able to see the things God is trying to work on us with.

Faith Can Move Mountains

A few weeks ago the Lord put on my heart to once again make room in my schedule and ‘clear my plate’. I’m not exactly sure the whole reason, but this time around, I fully trust. It’s interesting that the last recorded Soufood Sundays was about Faith because I am right in the mix of my own faith in the process (God, you are so good!).

Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

What is your definition of ‘fearing God’? I have found that people have so many different views. Last night in SOULFOOD SUNDAYS, I took a leap into a touchy and uncomfortable topic to discuss. I shared how I felt hurt by ‘religious people’ and the church when it came to how they presented God. As this thought that one must FEAR GOD and be almost paralyzed with fear. 

Have you experienced this? Have you been taught to fear God and that you are a sinner and presented in such a way you feel dirty?

Fear is a Liar!

I want to encourage you today to face it, face it with knowing that God is on your side. He is always there and will never leave your side, but you have to know it, and lean to him.

Is Jesus a Religion?

My Darling Daughter…..

Just reading those words made me weep. That deep pain that I had felt just the night before. Tears streaming down my face, as I was remembering the last time I saw her. I was reflecting on the time that she wrote this letter and it was as if God was giving me a moment of time back.
