Strength in Numbers

From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

Ephesians 4:16 NIV

*No man is an island, even when you feel like you would rather be alone. Growth doesn't spawn from seclusion, but rather the inclusion of others. I thank God for this reminder because the enemy will often speak to my heart, especially during my lowest points, and trigger annoyance and the desire for isolation, but we MUST remember that isolation is a trick to get you weaker and alone in order to create vulnerability and an easy target. There is strength in numbers...

Letting Go with God

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31 NIV

I believe in His ability renew my strength,  and to soar above the problem while rising above the pain. I believe in what my God is capable of,  and that His word will not come back voided. I believe in His power because He keeps showing me His love and glory. Thank you,  Father... I trust you.

Psalm 73:26 (ESV)

26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

*Today,  I have no words of encouragement and no desire to feel anything,  but the mourning of my best friend. However, all the strength I have is to share with you my experience of being broken,  and remind you of God's role during these times. God bless.... #Pearl #Parting #Heartaches #PrayingABadTurnsIntoAGood #MourningSummer16

Release of Love

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

1 John 4:18 NIV

Love is meant to cradle you from harm and make you feel safe... Not confine you to the cares of this world, and further damage your heart.  In true love,  there should not be any malicious intent... Just the freedom to release your heart, and to rebuild upon the hope of your desires.  Love is not perfect, but if you find it then embrace it.  The idea is to unveil yourself in the process, and not constantly feel burdened by it. However, release requires vulnerability...Do not fear opening up.. Embrace the experience.

Donate If Led

Hey everyone, I started a fundraising campaign for 'From Homeless to Homeowner -Aug15th'. Please tap to



Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 NIV

Definitely needed this today. In everything we face, we have to fight the good fight of faith and be strong because God is our strength. When you have someone that powerful on your side,  it should help to encourage us to not be afraid.  I am praying we all remember who has our back versus what stands before us...

Regardless and Through it All...

“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

Luke 15:21‭-‬24 NIV

"A love difficult to comprehend and more unsettling, a love we are unable to restrain. The flesh, the broken part of our humanity, longs to be in command, longs to be able to identify finite lines of understanding so that we can master that understanding, feel safe, and be in control. The love of this father is anything but safe and predictable."
...May we learn to love without trying to control or manipulate it...May we experience and give out the love that God placed in our hearts that's full of freedom in order to see pass everything, and love regardless of the circumstances or the logic. How many times do we claim to love, but yet try to control it or protect ourselves from what's waiting to burst out?  You may even have that isolated love that's only shared with those you know.. We will never experience the freedom and possibilities of true love if we control it our way, instead of letting God have His way...

The Ultimate Source

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

Psalm 46:1‭-‬3 NIV

We have to remember who is watching over us,  and who is always there during our time of need: God.  He has all the answers and resources needed to help you, and the comfort that aids in protecting your heart from worry.  We just have to remember to seek Him as a source.

Faith and Letting Go

rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 2:7 NIV

Lord, may we remember to act on the faith we were taught and not be hindered by what we feel.  I'm praying that we have a desire to go deeper in you, and are led according to your guidance and what you initially put in our hearts before the world tainted it. In light of the events that are taking place in the news and in our personal lives,  please help us to focus on your guidance and you are trying to change us within in order to make an outward change in the world.

Let Go, Let God

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

Psalm 34:8‭, ‬10‭-‬10‭, ‬12‭-‬14 NIV

*Our actions and choices influence how much we experience God,  and all that He has for us. The more we choose to do our own thing, the less we experience His capabilities and His presence. Every day should be a deeper experience with God, and a new desire to submit. I'm tired of accidentally or purposely taking control,  when He can maneuver better.  I am also ready to go beyond the norms of life.  Are you?

Believing and Trusting

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,

Ephesians 3:20 NIV

May we learn to let go of the idea of trying to help God, let go of holding on to things and people just in case,  and allow Him to have His way by being in faith. The trust that we have towards God and the faith that we apply can bring more than the desires of your heart.  May God help us believe more than we assume, relax in Him more than we react, and trust more than we doubt.
