Whatchu Say?



I read a quote emailed to me the other day which stated, "Believe that you're amazing". It was in that moment of reading it that I realized the level of our belief matches our level of greatness. A million people can think you're amazing but if you don't believe it, that amazing wow factor will never manifest itself in your life. God has told us who we are through this Word but do we believe it? 

-God says we are more than conquerors yet we fold at the first sign of adversity 

-God says we are fearfully and wonderfully made yet out insecurity levels are at peak

-God says we are a royal priesthood, a chosen generation yet our behavior exhibits well beneath who we are

Allowing what God says about you to seep into your spirit, will then change what you say about yourself! Once your speech changes your belief will follow!

Tell yourself you're amazing!  - Believe It!
Tell yourself you're great! - Believe it! 
Tell yourself you're awesome! - Believe It!
Tell yourself what God says about you!!! - Believe It!!!!

Why? Because God operates off of what we believe. 

In the ninth chapter of Matthew, Jesus encounters two blind men who asked for healing. Jesus then asked them a simple question, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" Ah! What a question! The blind men replied, "Yes, Lord" and Jesus said, "According to your faith let it be to you" and their eyes were opened. Jesus questioned their belief because your belief speaks to your level of faith. At the end of the day, the question is never can God do it, of course He can! The question is do you believe that He can do it, whatever that 'it' is for you. 

Lord help us in our unbelief and help us to be mindful of what we say to ourselves.    

Talking negative to yourself? Girrrl Stop! 
Doubting what God says in His Word? Girrrl Stop! 

There is greatness in you - Believe it!

#iSmile – Are You Packed Yet?

It’s been said that people may not remember what you said to them but they will always remember how you made them feel. This is how I remember Brock Benbow as one who would make me smile. I’m one of those people who if I hear someone laughing, I don’t even have to know what they are laughing at, I’m probably gonna start laughing too! Same goes for when someone smiles: you smile, I smile. Brock had a smile that seemed to be etched on his face, it never moved. I imagine that even the undertakers will not be able to contour his face away from that smile.


God decided to call Brock, my Sunday School student, home on November 11, 2019 at the tender age of 24 years old. So young, so sudden. I’m finding it hard to grapple with this one and I even find myself at times questioning God. Why him God? Why this one? Why now? The questions fill my head but they topple over when I re-focus on the fact the God knows best. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to spend the majority of the last weeken…

Fall Back Until the Divorce is in Black!

Have you ever caught yourself saying this? 
-He’s separated and up for grabs! -He’s emotionally checked out of the marriage years ago so he’s single -He’s separated, he doesn’t even live with her anymore -He’s separated so he’s available
Girrrl Stop! Let me say that again: Girrrl Stop!


Separated is still married and last time I checked, you can date a married man! Don’t be fooled and don’t be made a fool of. When you encounter separated men you never know what can come of that situation so it’s best to fall back until the divorce is in black!
If you date online, you will see that the sites do allow separated men to sign-up and in their profile it will say ‘Legally Separated’ but real talk, that still means ‘Legally Married’. Many men and women choose to date while they are separated because maybe they feel the relationship is really over and they want to move on, however this can be a recipe for disaster for the single person!
Here are a few reasons single women should steer clear of…

Thottin' & Boppin'

I recently heard this term from my younger/older cousin. I call him that because he’s younger chronologically but very mature in many ways. When he said thottin’ & boppin’ you know I had to ask! The term THOT (which I loath) means ‘that ho over there’. The term boppin’ here suggest to be proud of what you’re doing almost as if to have no shame about it. I laughed at this as he explained to me what it was because honestly it just sounds funny. After giving it some thought, it is my message to my Christian sisters! 

Stop thottin’ & boppin’ in the church! Thottin’ and boppin’ brings consequences and unnecessary stress. What do I mean? We all go through seasons of disobedience and as the old folks used to say, obedience is better than sacrifice. Maybe you’ve found yourself here: dating a man in the church, sleeping with him and still coming to sing on the choir on Sunday, and dare I say still got the nerve to take communion! Girrrl Stop! This should not be! You can’t be fornicati…
