Duck Dynasty

I’m beginning to think that God likes setting me up. No really, I write and schedule my blogs well in advance and as fate would have it, my “Duck Dynasty” blog would come out a week shy of Phil Robertson flat-lining his career in reality TV. If you haven’t heard by now, Phil has been removed indefinitely from the hit show “Duck Dynasty” after making some very crude comments against the LGBT community, as well as racially offensive comments. I really wanted to trash this post altogether after that news was released. How would people receive this message now after all the negative publicity? I’m thinking this could go wrong real fast. That lasted just a moment until I remembered who was in control so I’m trusting His timing. Regardless of the recent occurrence, I still believe that there’s a message in the video selected. I just hope you all can listen to it with fresh ears no matter what your feelings are towards him as a person. So here goes…

Transformation Quick Tips

Last week I was honored to participate in the God’s Glamorous Girls’ Conference at the Washington Convention Center. The theme was “Transformation.” It was such a blessing to share that experience with a few of my sisters that traveled from far away. I so love them!! I’m not even going to try to summarize all that was poured into me over those 3 days. What I will do is offer up some key words of wisdom that I took with me and will continue to meditate on over the remainder of the year.

I Got Some Scars

For anyone going through a storm… no matter who’s hurt you, no matter what the doctors say, no matter what you’ve lost… know that you’re built to withstand it all and come out of it on top! We win despite of what it looks like or how we feel. As I go through my storm, I’ve adopted a soundtrack to push me beyond my circumstances and live out the call of God on my life. My heart’s desire is that God is magnified when the storm finally ends and lives are transformed because of it. Check out the top 3 songs on steady repeat right now… Continue reading “I Got Some Scars”

The Heart of the Matter

Matt. 5:8 “Blessed are the pure at heart. For they shall see God.”
 
This is my pastor’s favorite scripture and I can honestly say it’s becoming mine as well. The reason why? Because there are people close to me in my life that may not outwardly express their love for God the way that I do. They may not have the desire to attend church every Sunday. They may not even fully understand the benefit of tithing. I choose not to focus on the seen arena. Though I watch their actions, I also observe their heart towards people and life… and I allow Holy Spirit to reveal them to me from the inside out. I don’t have to see them speak in tongues. They don’t need to be in the choir or serve on the usher board. They just need to keep a pure heart and God will work on them in His time. I’m not jaded by those that are simply active in the church because that is not what truly counts.  Continue reading “The Heart of the Matter”
