Often we go through seasons of life that seem like a desert. It’s dry and uncomfortable. There is no life, no fruit, no visible growth, and you just feel desolate and alone in the wilderness. We pose questions like, Where is God? Why is he not speaking? Why do I feel so lost? These are the moments when we can hear God’s voice so clearly because there is literally nothing else.

Day 10 was a game changer. It was on the tenth day after arriving in Israel that I had a dream of Jesus. “Why are you sleeping?” He asked. Struck. Overwhelmed. Overcome. Completely humbled by this piercing question. He waited on a response, but I could only stare into His kind eyes of liquid love. I had Continue Reading
Every person’s story holds a series of layers and elements, and in most cases there is usually one major theme that these elements are rooted from. Personally, my story is stacked with layers rooted in the theme of the UNRENEWED MIND. Before my mind became renewed I could not think Continue Reading
For a little over a year God has been teaching me about the significance of people’s names. All throughout scripture names are recorded in stories and genealogies. If you are anything like me, you probably skim over these names because they are either unpronounceable, or because the person didn’t seem that Continue Reading
God wants me dead, and He won’t stop until He kills me.
I’m half dead, but completely alive.
I die so He can use me
I die so my passions can be rebuilt
I die so I can step into destiny
