Sometimes I win the day, and sometimes I lose. Neither have anything to do with the events of the day, but rather with the condition of my heart.
So many of us have been sharing mixed reactions towards 2017 ending. I’ve read many stories weighed down in sadness. For me, 2017 was filled with great joy and laced in disappointment. I’ve been reflecting on deep disappointments lately – how they affect us and what purpose they serve. I would love if I couldContinue reading “what disappointment brings”
There is such beauty in the stillness. I sit and stare out of a window, enjoying the slow swaying of the trees before me. To live like a tree – allowing the seasons to come and go. They stand so sure of themselves knowing there is a time for everything – embracing each season as they change.
I kept feeling like the world was gonna break me, but that’s because I was living for the world’s applause.

What will I eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, in-between, before bed. Food has always brought meContinue reading “speak it, do it”
Soul is launching January 22. I know I keep saying how excited I am. My emotions toward our launch are way larger than just excitement. There is a weight of expectation and honor that surrounds me. The heaviness of what I sense is coming is vast. When I sit here thinking about Soul, I see God pouring out his heartContinue reading “i hear the cadence of revival”

It was a logical progression in my mind that if I had a dream that I wanted to pursue which seemed morally good, then God will allow it to be. I now laugh at the thoughts of my youth.Continue reading “a dream deferred is not dead”
A melody that causes your heart to swell and forces tears to burst from your eyes. A photo that makes you want to reach out and live within it. The moving frames that tell a story. A piece of artwork that enables you to see through a different perspective. A collaboration of words that raise off the pageContinue reading “when words come alive”
