Come Out! Come Out! Wherever you are…

Has it ever hit you how calm God was in Genesis when He called out to Adam after he had eaten from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? God could’ve called out to Adam in anger and frustration but here He is right after man has handed dominion of this world over to…

Hang (in) there Anyway

“Then Pilate took Jesus and had Him flogged. The soldiers also twisted together a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and threw a purple robe around Him. And they repeatedly came up to Him and said, “Hail, King of the Jews! ” and were slapping His face. When the chief priests and the…

Good Thing My Lifeguard Walks On Water

Psalm 69 1 Save me, O God, for the floodwaters are up to my neck. 2 Deeper and deeper I sink into the mire; I can’t find a foothold. I am in deep water, and the floods overwhelm me.   …Thank God my Lifeguard walks on water.     Life will not always be easy sailing. We…

“God doesn’t exists”…

“God doesn’t exist.” Most Christians who actually display their love and faith in Christ have heard this said to them before. I know I have. I used to hate this statement. It would fill me with rage, irritation and frustration. Rage because how dare someone say that? God does exist! Are they blind? Are they…

A Sowfull Summer

This summer has been full of experiences, good and bad, but every single experience has brought wisdom and encouraged growth. I am so full from what God has shown and revealed to me this summer and my heart is so full from the connections that God has ordained between me and people here where I…

The Journey- E V E R Y T H I N G

The Journey- Unmerited Favor

Yes, this journey/walk is black and white, but there’s Grace in-between for when we fall… It’s amazing when you sit back and really think of the Grace of God. It’s so unfathomable but as Christians on this journey, it’s important to understand God’s unmerited favor. I know that for me personally (and some others I’ve…

May I Be Transparent?…

May I be transparent? For years I’ve had “SuccessfullyStandingOut” in my bios on social media however when I inserted that, I was in high school and just put it because it sounded good. Lol. My Twitter handle has been @BornTaLead since 11th grade though I wasn’t necessarily leading anything (besides an occasional small devotional in…

The Crucifixion Heard Around the World

“Born sinner just like any other man standin’  Couldn’t keep the standard so God sent a Stand In” ~ Lecrae   “But redemption is costly. For me to receive forgiveness, Jesus had to be made sinful for me and die in my place. I can imagine Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane praying for me….

Ignorant IDOLATRY

“Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭20:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬ We read the commandment, but we don’t really READ the commandment, we kind of skirt over it because we believe that idolatry only involves worshiping another “god” (which of course we would never do)- but that’s not the case. It is so easy to…
