Dear God, I am tired...

Sometime life is exhausting. I mean straight up exhausting, like the Houston sun that beams on the back of my neck on a bright, summer day. Life has thrown so many curve balls and sometimes I question you if you really love me because I don't believe that you would put me through such hurt like this. Why is all of this happening? Why, why, WHY?!

It is the one thing that has nourished my roots so that I am able to grown into, well, #HerNature. The one thing that made me, ME!

That Time That They Tried To Silence Me.

One day, I had a moment that I did not feel like myself. I was not joyful I did not feel happy, I just felt like blah. I literally took a moment and thought about something so silly that it made me laugh. I continued to laugh. Continued to laugh until I felt the energy rise from the depths of my soul because I was longing for that joy that I know that I have inside of myself. I was not going to be silenced.

I Didn't Know How To Pray

This past week we reflected on #NationalDayOfPrayer and it made me reflect on my own prayer life. Oh man, I have so much to pray for. I have a lot of prayers that are deep inside of my heart but instead of talking about that I would like to  reflect back to when I didn't know how to pray or I acted too bashful for prayer. My best friend would call me everyday to pray before the day starts and everyday when he would ask me if I wanted to pray you know what I would say?... Nothing.

When He says move, you move JUST LIKE THAT... *Ludacris Voice*

When being honest means that you have to hurt somebody in the process is the hardest pill to swallow for me. I never thought that living my life sometimes means that helping one person can in turn hurt others in the process. Doesn't make sense to me when I repeat the statement in my head but I have seen it play out over and over in my life and with others around me. I have had to move away from a friendships because of its toxicity in order to salvage my life.

Bond(age)

What I have learned lately is that bondAGE has no age yet, it is a bond that ages with you. What a tricky think bondage can be. Slipping its way into your life with its subtle movements and schemes. However, just as subtle bondage attaches itself to you, it can be reversed with certain actions that will release you from the chains holding you down.

My ONE New Year Resolution!

As a person, we set so many unrealistic expectations on ourselves and on everyone around us. How are you supposed to live as "YOU" if you are always trying to be something you are not trying to reach these expectations. Reaching unreal goals.

Stepping out on... what?!

It is so easy to step out into the water when you can see the bottom but what if you can't see the bottom? What then?! I don't know about you but at this time of my life there are some things that I know God has promised me and I am so ready to receive what He has in store.

Seasoned Like Grandma’s Fried Chicken

As I sit in my dark room, all alone, with a still silence whispering in my ears I ponder on what I should write about. My tired mind is filled with scriptures and book quotes but nothing is seeming to grab my direct attention at this moment. But then in the silence my Spirit becomes humbled because I realize I am not alone even in a time that seems too still.

#HerLetters to my Lonely Friend

I am writing you to say that I see you hurting and I see you contemplating. And I am here to tell you that you are not alone. You may be wondering on when I say that ‘I see you’? I might not see you on a daily bases or even know you personally, but the reason that I see you is because I see me. I see who I used to be.
