How to Find God in the Darkness

How many times in your life have you struggled while living as a child of God?  A struggle, as defined by Webster’s dictionary, is contending with an adversary or opposing force. What do we, as believer’s consider to be our “opposing” force or struggle?  For many it would be Satan.  He attacks our marriages, our children, and our friendships. His mission is to steal, kill, and destroy.  He also likes to create division, confusion, and disorder within our minds. My struggle is with myself. I have body dysmorphic disorder.  It is an illness in which you obsess about a flaw

My life is truly a struggle but you’d never know it because I am rejoicing in The Lord always. I struggle with overwhelming sadness, defeat and insecurities. The devil is always on my back trying to get me to give up, but God… But GOD y’all!!! He is always in my face like a football coach pushing and pressing me to live a greater life than I deserve. He is constantly calling me to more than I am capable of without Him. And despite my shortcomings, He takes all of my weakness and uses it to make Himself look good.

Build Your Man Up

Do you find it difficult to find the good in your husband? Does he no longer resemble that awesome man you once loved so deeply? I can recall very clearly a time when Germaine and I were drifting apart. Some of it had to do with us being a young family with four children and lots of responsibilities. However, some of it had to do with us as individuals and how we communicated with one another. The Bible tells us that “life and death are in the power of the tongue” and what that simply means is that you can

6 Things a Wife Should Never Do

If there’s anything I’m good at besides being a wife it’s speaking my mind. If I’m asked for my thoughts I’m going to give them. Shoot, I’ll even give my $0.02 sometimes when I’m not asked. But the beauty of having this blog is that I get to freely dish out healthy doses of unsolicited advice about marriage. As you may know, I’ve been married to my sweet and wonderful husband going on 13 years and if I had it to do all over again I’d do it in a heart beat. Our marriage is just that amazing to me.

Are You Making a Difference

I wasn’t going to post anything today but changed my mind. This past Sunday and Monday were really tough for me which I’ll talk more about in a later post. I go through these mood swings where I just don’t want to be bothered with people. I’m naturally and introvert but God has been drawing me out of my comfort zone. I’m content to be in the background, inconspicuous and hidden behind the crowd but I don’t think that’s Gods plan for me. Sometime last year Ken Jumper who is our lead Pastor and founder of the Harvest Church asked if

10 Ways to Avoid Arguments with Your Spouse

I grew up in a home where my parents argued and I’m guessing it’s the reason I thought arguing was normal during the first seven years of my marriage. I thought all married couples argued — shoot I’d seen some of them have arguments. After seven years of marriage having at least one argument a week was commonplace. I remember having an argument with my husband the first week we met which is why I never thought it was important for me to try and change. I was like that when he met me and I wasn’t going to change.

If I don’t tell you anything else I want you to know why prayer and bible reading is so important. You will not be, feel or get closer to God without spending time reading your Bible and talking to God. Seriously…it just won’t happen. God can use a variety of ways to communicate with us because He’s God however, He has given us two undeniable means that will work every single time. God does not desire that our relationship with Him nor the way in which we communicate with Him to be a mystery. In fact, He wants it to

Marriage Tip

I learned a valuable tip early in my marriage about building up my husband. My husband is already a confident man and was when I met him so I’m not talking about building up his esteem. I’m more so talking about building up his trust in me as one of his biggest supporters. As his wife I can either tear him down or build him up. There was a time when instead of encouraging him for where he was and where he had come from in terms if maturity in Christ, I would instead discourage him and focus on how
