I want to start this by saying that when I started this blog back in 2015, I had big dreams and hopes that this blog would be seen by so many. At the same time, I was kind of afraid of a lot of people reading the things I had written. God had other plans … Continue reading How life can change you.
I have never liked being vulnerable. I have never been one to open up to someone and tell them something I am struggling with or having a hard time with. I always saw it as venting and whining. What I didn't realize is that its a very Biblical thing to share with one another the … Continue reading Vulnerability.
The other day, I realized that God has called me to once again wait on Him. I feel as though I am always waiting on Him, yet there are moments where the wait is a much harder commitment.

Back in December of last year, I had this compelling on my heart from the Lord to do something. I didn't understand this burden or even the way that it all happened. I prayed about it for a while.
