It has been a while since I've posted, but I've taken some time to reflect on this past year. 2018 was the year of "hope." God gave me the word hope for 2018 and there were many moments that He spoke to me about hope through different circumstances in 2018. There are three different "categories" … Continue reading 2018 Year In Review
In my last post, I shared some things that God has been doing through my year of singleness of journey. If you haven't checked it out yet, it's called "Year of Singleness." One of the things I mentioned was a story to come about healing from Epilepsy. I don't think it is necessary to share … Continue reading Greater Faith
Last August, God was calling me to a deeper place of surrender, even my desire for a relationship or marriage to truly pursue the Lord and grow in my purpose. I knew that God was calling me to be more intentional about my season of singleness and purifying my heart towards Him. I started a … Continue reading Year of Singleness
She twirled 'round and 'round, Young, wild, and free- Everyone could see- Where her strength and joy came from. But some of the things that the rhythm of her heart danced to, Weren't the notes that would help her through. Her soul held onto the roots that weren't giving her life and ran dry, The … Continue reading Rhythm
I could not bare the thought of her smoking another cigar. Another cigar equaled one less day of life. The bags in her eyes showed that she was slowly fading. She had to be here and there. At the end of the day, She used the cigar to numb the pain, Until she felt nothing. … Continue reading Cigar
Love, a simple four letter word. If it's so simple, then why does it often get trampled on like a piece of dirt? Good intentions turn into empty promises, Because our words have no foundation. If our words have no foundation, Then who can we be safe in? The heart that sunk like an anchor … Continue reading Carnival Toys
When you're climbing a mountain, And you feel you're about to fall, With the weight of the world upon your shoulders, And you feel feel everything is crumbling all around you. When you feel like a withering flower, or when you feel as if you're puddy melting in someone's hands, Never knowing what is going … Continue reading The Mountain
The messages drew her in like a magnet, No matter how much she tried she could not forget them, Trying and trying to fill the void in her heart, The empty words made their mark. She wanted to feel nothing but love, It was as if Jesus wasn't enough, She wanted to push the fear … Continue reading Steadfast
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 I think everyone has been worried about something at some point in their life. As you … Continue reading Letting go: Philippians 4:6-7
Only God can restore, Only God can love you more, Only God know what your purpose here on earth is for, Those moments when you want to fall to the floor, And the moments when you feel like you could soar, Only God knows every up and down moment- There's no doubt of it. He … Continue reading Redemption Starts
Prior to starting this new journey, I was the shy girl that say by herself most of the time at school. The girl that got made fun of for being overweight starting in elementary school and most of high school. I was the girl that had no confidence in herself. I was the girl that … Continue reading My Fitness Journey
She kept searching and searching, To try to fill the yearning, That she longed for deep down inside, But what she wanted she couldn't find. She wanted someone to spend her life with, She wanted to find the perfect fit, She wanted someone that would draw her closer to the Lord, And for her heart … Continue reading Searching
He swept her off her feet, He told her he would never leave, They were in love and happy together, And couldn't get enough of each other, But one thing led to another, She wasn't ready to be a mother, She was faced with two choices, But couldn't decide above all the noises, A life … Continue reading Looking From the Outside
The memory of his hand moving up my leg, Has always stayed, I was five years old, My whole life changed that day. He told me I looked pretty in my little sun dress, But I was too scared to confess, So nothing was ever said, And I never wanted to be near a man … Continue reading An Untold Memory

I've been thinking about how to write this post for a while. Maybe I even procrastinated a bit because I knew that I needed to share this, but I had this sense of fear holding me back. Regardless, God put this on my heart to share. The Lord makes me brave in moments where I'm … Continue reading Doing Life: Hardships and Victory
Thinking back to my childhood, I hated running. I thought P.E. class was torture, but especially on the days I had to do a timed run. Fast forward about 10 years, and I'm a collegiate runner. It's crazy to look back and realize the irony of how my passion for running grew over time. Personally, … Continue reading Why Do I Run?
