Kindness, Clarity, and Encouragement – #22
I’ve no idea where I got this from but hey! It still slaps.
I said what I said
A lesson on the fruit of the lips I never ever say anything that I don’t mean. Even when I was out in the world. I am “If ‘I said what I said’ was a person”. Where’s my T-shirt? That said: I weigh words carefully cuz you can’t take them back. The imaging that God…
Kindness, Clarity, and Encouragement – #13
That’s it. That’s the post. You reap what you sow, my friend.
Sometimes honest Christianity looks like the Struggle
confession: I have started a particular post four times. And each time I erased it because I was talking out of my agitation and NOT my anointing. “Human anger does not ever produce the righteousness that God desires.” (James somewhere, my version of it. 🤷🏾♀️) Sometimes, you gotta sit the game out before you sin…

Listen. I knew he was being funny and fun—tongue-in-cheek, literarily speaking…and also. He was quietly insistent. Like, all…
The Folly of Faking It
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. John 15:1-2 I had this student who mastered the art of looking busy. You rarely saw him…
The Year of Reclaim
A personal testimony. The thing of it is, I was born to serve. People who assume things about me, assume that I am attempting to do other than serve have to check their own hearts. I have always just filled the spot that needed to be filled. Dishes? I wash them. Alto? I sing my…
