Elizabeth

I’m sitting on the train with two hours to spare and here I am typing to my B&F family. I’m beginning to understand how therapeutic this is for me. I know, I know… this isn’t about me but I’ve been a writer all my life. It wasn’t until July 2010 that I began to make it public. Before then, I considered it hobby… the B&F family made it a mission… and today I’m adding therapy to the mix. Today’s blog is a bit different so I hope you guys don’t mind a little story telling. I promise there’s a point at the end. Continue reading “Elizabeth”

Is Love Ever Blind?

Today it seems I have more questions than answers. Decided I’d share a random thought that came to mind a few days ago that led to some real soul searching and prayer about the topic…

“Love is blind.” Love is blind? Who came up with this saying? What is the idea behind it? What does it mean to you? I was sitting alone thinking of all the people I love or have loved at one point in time and realized I wouldn’t categorize any of them as “blind love.” Love is a strong word and is usually not handed out to just any passerby. I mean, as Christians, we are taught to show love to all people and though we may have love in our hearts for them, it’s not often that they hear the words “I love you.” We save those words for people who have reached our hearts in ways unimaginable. Whether family, friends, or mates those three words are usually reserved for those that hold a special place in our hearts. I can honestly say that the love I share for others is intentional.

Define What YOU Want!

It’s often so easy for us to say we want a better paying job, a husband, a wife, our own business, etc but how often do we set aside time to clearly define those things. As usual, I’ll use myself as an example. Since I began my career, I knew I wanted to be a TV producer. I’ve always been a visual person with tons of creative ideas and opinions on what I would love to see on screen. I jumped into my career the first chance I got and went with the flow. I wasn’t quite in the position I dreamed of but I was happy to be in my field and getting paid decent for it. The years passed and I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t progressing in the areas I wanted to be. Each day became more difficult and I couldn’t see an end to the tunnel. It wasn’t until I heard the words of a man who has made such an extraordinary impact on my life that I was able to see passed the situation. My pastor once said, “The power to define is the power to fulfill. You can’t fulfill what you are unable to define.” Continue reading “Define What YOU Want!”

Love & Peace In Spite Of…

In life, we are challenged to co-exist with all different types of people with varying personalities, inhabitations, and belief systems. The battle I face, as do many “practicing” Christians, is loving them in spite of. One of my biggest challenges is accepting that God is pushing me to the forefront to share my life and my heart with others. Have you ever tried to rebuke something that you know was of God?? I know it’s silly when you know that God’s Word is exactly what you want to hear, but I have to say that the natural part of me can be so stubborn. If I did not have the revelation that I have of God’s love, I would be content in my ways. However, Continue reading “Love & Peace In Spite Of…”

Priceless Beauty Comes with a Heart

Proverbs 31:29-31 ~ “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”

I would like to thank my fellow Bold & Fab sister Jocelyn (Indigo) for her words in her last post. It was her words that sparked the idea for what you are reading today. She wrote, “The prettiest face on earth is but an empty hole on your neck w/o the ability and willingness to have a HEART.”

In a world that is so obsessed with looks, material possessions, and status symbols, it is so refreshing to meet people who have all of the above but use it to uplift others and glorify God. Continue reading “Priceless Beauty Comes with a Heart”

Falling In Love

God has a way of making the most complex thoughts so clear it makes me realize how far from brilliant I really am! It hit me as I was listening to one of my favorite gospel songs by Jonathan Butler “Falling in Love with Jesus.” As I was singing the lyrics aloud in my car, I began to think about why I love the song to much. Continue reading “Falling In Love”

It Seems Right

Ever since last Friday night, I’ve had the overwhelming sense that God is preparing me for something beyond my imagination. On that Friday, after 2 1/2 hours of unthinkable traffic, completely flustered, and irritated to no end… I finally reach the doors and get seated comfortably at the APEX conference just in time for Vickie Winans to grace the stage. It’s crazy how quick my irritation turned into praise as I stood amongst people who gathered for the same purpose… Continue reading “It Seems Right”

No Excuses…

It’s my heart’s desire to share stories, words, and revelations each and every Tuesday that will impact your lives for days to come. Some weeks are more challenging than others and most of the time it’s due to poor planning on my part. This week would be one of them but for those that know me they know that I don’t do anything halfway. I give 100% to everything that I set out to accomplish or take part in and the Bold & the Fabulous is no different. Continue reading “No Excuses…”

Behind the Lyrics

I’m one Christian that still rocks out to some secular music. I’m more choosey nowadays but I don’t see all secular music as being bad. Honestly there’s some gospel music that is worse… yeah there really is! Gospel music that is not Word based is more detrimental to your walk than listening to a secular song. Secular music is a form of entertainment… Gospel music is about praise and worship… but if what you’re singing can’t be found in the Word then what is it really? Just some words that a songwriter thought sounded good and would evoke the right emotion so it was laid to track. I’m not really trying to judge what makes good/bad gospel music. I’m more trying to shed light on the hazards of failing to guard your ear and your heart. Continue reading “Behind the Lyrics”
