How do you defend the women who hurt you?

My babies, what’s up? Today, I just kind of wanted to get some stuff off my chest. I don’t have a rant inside of me wanting to come out, just sadness. I’m actually not sad right now, because God shed light and strength over my heart, but to me it’s still a sad topic. A…

Unexplainable Pain – Origins, Effects, Outcomes

Does your heart ever hurt and you don’t even know why. You literally just, don’t know. Sometimes I feel that, a slight pain in my heart that I question every now and again. I wonder what it means, where it comes from, what its purpose is. I usually don’t get any real answers though. (Sigh).…

Reminder: Breathe + Trust in God

Today as I’m reading 1 Peter 5, I just can’t help but know that this message was hand-picked by God for me today. “So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most…
