The Source


My heart was racing and my mind was running a mile a minute with thoughts and images. I needed things to slow down but they wouldn’t. I tried to rest my body and lay quietly in the dark. When that didn’t work, I tried to distract myself with Facebook. But I was not interested in that. So, I opened my bible app and looked for a reading plan. After reading scriptures and talking to God, peace began to surround me. I was able to drift off to sleep.

Then the morning came. I was totally distracted. I was moving on auto-pilot. I hungered for the Word, so I completed my bible study lesson for the day. Oh, the similarities between Haman and I in Esther 5:9-10. Haman was happy then enraged. Nevertheless, he held his composure and passed. Likewise, I chose to move forward and to take control of my actions and reactions. Every thought is not meant to be verbalized. God always delivers a word just for you at the exact moment that you need it. You just have to be open and willing to receive it.  

The words of Kirk Franklin played over and over in my mind and lifted the heaviness from my heart. “I know that I can make it. I know that I can stand. No matter what may come my way, my life is in your hands. With Jesus, I can take it. With Him I know I can stand.” I am not alone on this life journey and neither are you. God knows what you’re going through and He wants to provide you with comfort.

Who do you turn to in the time of need?

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
