Who Do You Trust?

Richard Smallwood has a song called ‘Trust Me’. In the song, God is speaking and the lyrics are as follows:
I will be with you (3x)If you will only trust MeTrust Me, Trust Me
I’ll never leave you (3x)If you will only trust MeTrust Me, Trust Me
I’ll fight your battles (3x)If you will only trust MeTrust Me, Trust Me
Vamp -I AM that I AMI have ALL PowerI WILL deliverIf you will only trust MeTrust Me, Trust Me
If only we believed that, I mean truly believed it. We often say that we trust God but do we really? The dictionary definition of trust says, ‘reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc. of a person or thing; confidence’. God is pleading with us to fully rely on Him for everything! Yet, we can’t seem to take our hands off of our lives. We seem to think God needs our help. I’m completely guilty in this area!



The issue of trust in the life of a believer is more of an issue of belief. What do you truly believe about God? When we look at the two blind men in the Gospel of Matth…

Just a reminder...

Just a reminder….
Pssst.. Yes you! The dope chick reading this - yeah you! In case you forgot or just need a reminder: You’ve Got This!
No matter what has come your way this year or in your life thus far, you’re still here, still standing strong and still moving gracefully amidst the chaos, civil unrest, political foolishness and even a global pandemic!



You are here, surviving, thriving and moving forward!
You are here, breathing in and exhaling purpose. God has you here for a purpose so walk in it! Stop walking in doubt, fear and worry, that’s not how you’re wired! But rather start walking in faith and in power, trusting that God will guide you where He wants you to go and lead you on your path of purpose.
God declares in His Word, “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6). What God has purposed in you, He will see it to completion! 
Trust Him!
Purpose is in you, purpose defines you, and p…

Squad Up!

I read a recent Facebook post that said:


Is that woman still there? Did you still let her rent that apartment in your sub-conscience? Is she traveling down to your heart for groceries? The longer you let her take up residence in the neighborhood the more havoc she can wreak in your life due to her poor decision making. She’s an expert at spotting the wrong opportunity and treating it like the right one so yeah - she gotta go!
Cut ties with her today! If you don’t, she will just allow the same behavior to creep into your life but from a different person. You made it through that disrespectful ex, fake friend, abusive family member, or even the toxic co-worker - why go through that again! You’ve moved on, you’ve healed and you’ve leveled up!
I have to admit, everything I wrote above sounds great (toots horn) but it’s only the ‘what’ which doesn’t help you in a practical way. Most social media posts focus on the ‘what’: -What you should do -What mindset you should adopt -What direction you sh…

Do You Want It?

I’m always amazed when I cut off the lights in my room at night. When I first turn them off I can’t see anything and I literally feel my way through to my bed. But something happens halfway through on this short journey - my eyes adjust to the darkness and then I can see better than I could a few seconds ago. Life can be that way too because when you’re in a place of brokenness it is hard to see your way through so you begin to reach out and feel your way. But at some point while in a dark place, your eyes begin to adjust and you begin to adjust to the darkness, the dysfunction, and the despair. The darkness in your life is so overwhelming that you begin to adjust to the new normal there. These are mere survival tactics while in your place of brokenness but ladies we are called to come out of that place and not dwell there.


I’m reminded of the Biblical story of the of the pool of Bethesda where a multitude of sick people laid out waiting for the move of the water. An angel would come d…

Don't Shrink for Nobody!

Yeah I know the English is off but you get my point!!

Trust God

We are indeed living in uncertain times but now is the time more than ever that we need to Trust God! Joshua 1:9 says, "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". We must believe God's Word and not walk in fear however, we MUST walk in wisdom! I hope this quick video gives you the encouragement boost you need as we begin this new week!

Be encouraged. Be inspired.

Girrrl Check Whatchu Sayin’!

It’s been a long time Girrrl Stop Nation but I’m back! Work has been crazy busy and non-work projects have been mounting up but God is still good!! Hopefully you’ve been following the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages (@girrrlstop) for daily does of inspiration, quotes and funny posts. I have definitely missed writing to all of you! So, let’s jump in!
I had the opportunity over the past six weeks to teach a course at church called Back to the Bible Basics. I was encouraged by each student’s willingness to learn, share, and engage in this class with me. I was so blessed by all of them in ways they will never know! As any good instructor would, I gave out weekly homework assignments and the final homework assignment was to pick any topic from the class that spoke to you, or was interesting to you and present that topic to the class in 1-2 minutes. When I assigned this immediately some people begin to murmur about what they were unable to do. It sounded something like:
-Oh I don’t do…
