What’s Your Superhero Name?

We all love a good superhero story. Someone steps out of obscurity, scared to go to battle but armed with secret powers and a sense of duty. He swoops in, putting his own life at risk, to save the people from the evil plot of the nefarious villain. There are suspenseful fight scenes, and once…

I Am Loved

“God never closes a door without opening a time portal to 1996”. ~Somewhere in the Bible (Message Version) Last week I vowed to quit wasting my time flirting with Mr. Wrong. There was one great date, and maybe some long-time-coming kissing, but all in all I knew he was not a godly man, despite the…

Tellin’ It Like It T-I- Is

I am not a great Christian. I have a fondness for the word “mofo”, I suffer from road rage, and my downfall has always been sexy black men. Thankfully, I love a God who shows himself strong in my weaknesses. I don’t actually curse (that much), I seldom use communicative hand gestures on the highway,…

Take Your Opiate and Shove It

Religion in the opiate of the masses- Winston Churchill If an opiate is supposed to calm you down and zone you out, then I guess religion does that on some level. I came to Jesus when I couldn’t handle my life anymore. I was miserable. Now I’m happy. I’ve heard plenty of stories of “rock-bottom”…

While You Were Studying

I’m not sure how I didn’t end up pregnant in high school. I wasn’t the nice Christian girl who prayed around the flagpole. I was the girl who skipped school and wasn’t very particular about who she slept with.  It was exciting to me and I felt grown up and desirable. My relationships lasted for…

Richard and Mildred Loving, were a white husband and black wife who fought the system in the 1967 to legalize interracial marriage. It is exciting that such an important story is being remembered once again right in my backyard! They brought in…

He Is Good

Psalm 16 A prayer[a] of David. 1 Protect me, God, for the only safety I know is found in the moments I seek You. 2 I told You, Eternal One, “You are my Lord,     for the only good I know in this world is found in You alone.” 3 The beauty of faith-filled people encompasses me.     They are true,…

Unforgettable

What has God forgotten to do in your life? There must be something. Are you waiting to get married, get pregnant, get a promotion, win the lottery, or get your adopted kids from the Congo? What is the prayer, the one desire that causes a little ache in your heart whenever you think about it?…

Tempted in Toronto

Bad Decisions. This could have been the name of the Lifetime Movie about my teens and early twenties. I was not a wise girl. Ten years later,  the bad choices are fewer and farther between and I am grateful. However,  they still happen, and now that I have wisdom,  experience,  and Jesus, they feel a…
