The meaning of rejection & finding YOUR DOOR!

Understand this, beloved. God didn’t create you to chase those who reject you. In Matthew 7:6, Jesus said, “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” You know what this equates to?…

Don’t be afraid to try.

Many of the barriers in our lives are created by our own way of thinking. Admit it. We focus too much on the negative what if’s instead of the positives. All too often the uncertainties of the future plague our minds and our thoughts go on a rampage and we begin to think like this:…

Encouragement for life.

You can make an impact and build a legacy for you and your family and your future generations! Don’t get so caught up on being seen by the world. As long as God knows your name, that is all that matters! Live your life to the fullest, with love and purpose. Don’t worry about making…

Should’ve, would’ve, could’ve.

Don’t allow your present circumstances to stop you from fulfilling your dreams. The last thing you want, is to be like the man who hid his talent out of fear. (Read Matthew 25:14-30). Fear that you don’t have what it takes. Fear that you’ll fail miserably. Fear that it will turn out to be a…

Stay woke and on guard.

Listen up! The devil is the father of lies! John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for…

Turning the other cheek.

No one likes to be used. Especially, if they’re aware of it. Two of the very first reactions a person feels when their love or kindness is being misused, is hurt and anger. Those two feelings can cause that person to shut down and shut people out or seek revenge. Matthew 5:39, “But I tell…

Run YOUR RACE at YOUR PACE.

When running a race, you don’t look behind you because looking back can cause you to fall. You don’t look at who’s in front of you because if you’re more focused on who’s ahead of you, you could get discouraged. When running a race, you focus on the finish line, because that’s what winners do….

The audacity to live.

Don’t let life pass you by because you’re too afraid to live. It doesn’t matter what the cards of life has dealt you, play it to the best of your ability, knowing you have help, hope and a future. One of my favorite scriptures of all time is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans…

Bentley or Bus? Does it even matter?

There’s nothing wrong with working hard and being able to buy the finer things in life. If “things” are more important to you than “the little things” in life, then go for it, but I can guarantee you that money cannot buy you happiness or love; at least not the real kind. Again, there’s nothing…

The reflection of an impression

The reflection of an impression: A short story by Shubricca L Bell “Look in the mirror Diana. What do you see?” I can still hear my moms voice echoing that question to me. Although it was thirty something odd years ago, I remember a saying she’d often say, as if it were yesterday. “Your reflection…
