Girrrl Get Yo' Faith Up!

There’s always more than meets the eye especially in the life of a believer. God has made promises to us through His Word and as my Pastor preached and reiterated “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise…. but is long-suffering toward us…” (2 Peter 3:9). So as women of God, you can’t live your life based on what you see. The Bible says that “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20), this just simply means that God’s promises are guaranteed!! This is why God instructs us to ‘walk by faith and not by sight’ (2 Corinthians 5:7) because we can’t go by what we see but rather we have to operate on faith in our God who can do exceedingly above all we can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20-21)! The reality is that at this moment in time, it may not look like things are lining up with what God has told you but you have to trust and believe that what God said is true. 

So are you steering your life by what you see or by what you believe?
Let’s do a quick check: 

You say you believe that God is YHWH Yireh (The Lord Will Provide - Genesis 22:14) yet you don’t bring your tithe into the storehouse (Malachi 3:10) but rather go get that 1.3 billion PowerBall ticket (OUCH!)

You say you believe that God will give you the desires of your heart yet you don’t delight in Him (Psalm 37:4). You delight in Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike (lol)! You think God is taking too long so you should ‘help’ God out right?

You say you believe that with God all things are possible yet you doubt your God given abilities. You’re stagnant when God is telling you to get crackin’ with that business, book (yup, I’m stepping on my own toes too), ministry or whatever God has placed in your spirit! Lack of money should not be a deterrent - move forward with the vision and the Lord will send the resources. 



Begin to steer your life by what you believe and not by what you see. If you need to strengthen your belief then you need to get to the gym - the house of God! Workout daily by reading God’s Word and prayer. Attend those fitness classes in the form of Bible study and Sunday School. Exercise, exercise, exercise so your ‘faith muscles’ are strong! Let the Word of God encourage you and bring your belief to an unshakable state!

#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…
