I normally try to do a devotional post on Mondays, but last week and this week, I’ve been more in the “update” mode. Perhaps it’s because I haven’t written all these posts out ahead of time like I did previously this summer. You may notice that this post isn’t coming out in the 9 o’clock hour, as I aim for my posts to normally do. That’s because this has been a spur-of-the-moment week this week. Incredibly spontaneous, it’s been a week juxtaposing “Be still” and “Go”.
In my early teenage years, I had a personal, everyday encounter with what it meant to be a hypocrite. Someone close to me hurt me continually, verbally and emotionally, when I was with her, but then when out with her friends would be all syrupy sweet. It sickened me, and I resolved to be honest and genuine myself. I know it’s always easier to see someone else’s flaws over your own, so I make it a point to work on in myself whatever bothers me about others. I believe it was Gandhi that had the same idea: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
…to tell you that I’m currently out of town with spotty internet connection and a glitchy keyboard, so I am unable to watch church and upload my notes today. I will post them by the end of the week. Thank you for your understanding and patience! Meanwhile, you can check out last week’s notes here.
You’ve been in my life for long enough. You flip my stomach and spin my head. You drown my hope and blind my eyes. You blur my vision of my destiny and choke me with your lies.
I’m done with you.
I’m honored to serve alongside you, do you know that? Continue reading “To the Warriors”
Those of you who have known/followed me for a little while will know that Lisa Bevere‘s book Girls with Swords had a massive impact on my life (I wrote about its impact here, here, and here). Those of you who do know me ask me about this story ALL THE TIME so this post is for y’all. And for me and my sanity, so I don’t have to keep repeating myself.😂
Last week, I made my first cent from my blog. Let me give you a little backstory: Continue reading “My First Penny!”
