  • The more I study out hope the more I am astounded at how the scriptures pry into my heart! It dawned on me a while ago that I base my hope more on sight than on faith. It was like a revelation! If faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of that which we do not see, I had to ask myself am I really sure of what…

  • Helplessness is an overwhelming, sometimes suffocating feeling. Recently, I've watched several of my friends struggle in their lives and their relationship with God. Seeing them helpless and feeling helpless myself as I've treid to "fix" them has been hard. If someone close to me is going through a hard time…

Gods brought me a long way from the New York City Housing Projects. I studied the Bible, repented, and was baptized for the forgiveness of my sins when I was 17 and have been repenting and striving towards heaven ever since. The hardest thing about becoming a Christian at 17 was trusting that God would take care of me, meet my emotional teen needs, and help me overcome my enormous insecurities…what else would a teen girl have trouble with?

Since those first days, I have made it out of the Projects, finished my Masters degree in International Development, and moved  to DC  to work in my field. As a young single Christian woman my struggles today are a little different than they were when I first came to know God, but who am I kidding, not much. It’s the every day battle for my heart to be pure before God, to strive to please him, and help others to seek and know Him.

Over my years of a faithful walk with God I have received much grace and compassion and have been blessed beyond my wildest dreams. Through out it all one thing has stayed consistent: God’s word. Through His word I have been inspired and it has kept me faithful even when faith seemed like a foreign concept and God seemed deaf to my prayers. I started emailing my Quiet Times which helped me stay accountable as I shared my struggles and fought for understanding. Some wrote back and said they too were inspired and could relate. I hope some of my times can help inspire others who are seeking and fighting just like I am, to get to heaven and take as many as possible with me along the way.
