In Spite of…

God promises both suffering and abundance. In everything we do we must keep our eyes on Him. Regardless of the situation we should still flourish. God calls us to flourish in the midst of the trials. Often times we can’t see how, but the secret is that we flourish in spite of ourselves. Jesus was…

Take Courage

It’s been a long time and its feels weird to type that. When I started the blog my greatest fear was that I would not be consistent. Unfortunately, inconsistency has plagued for me sometime. What is crazy about fear is that at some point they can be a means by which if we allow it…

The Slighted Crown

This is Bloom in Journey right? A place where I said I wanted to be transparent and where others can glean, share and support each other… That is the ultimate goal. So along my journey I am compelled to share my experiences. Whether they are triumphant or disastrous. Let’s start from the beginning: Heads up…….

Learning to Lean

Preface : I wrote this while I was in New Jersey. I was having some difficultly writing. I’m not sure why maybe the change in environment.  But one morning while strolling through my notes I found this observation that I wrote in February.

It’s Wednesday night and  I’m brushing my teeth realizing that tomorrow is Thursday and I still have nothing to post on my blog. But to be honest, I didn’t have anything to post. There were certain things the Holy Spirit and I have been working through and that’s all there is. But while I was…

Aaron and God’s Burden

Dear Aaron, You were truly a trendsetter. The first of the Levitical priesthood–chosen by God to come before Him for the people. As I read about you, I see how God restores your relationship with your brother in the wilderness. Moses wasn’t confident in his ability to do what God had chosen him for so…

Some people consider it to be nothing but a consumer holiday like pretty much every other holiday while others hold this day close to their heart. Regardless of how we feel about this day love deserves to be celebrated. True and…

The Call to Go Against the Grain & Jeremiah

Shalom, Jeremiah. You’ve always fascinated me. I’ve tried at least 3 times to read your entire book. I always find myself getting caught up in the first seven chapters that I never get to the end. Let me explain, it grabs my attention but it’s so deep. I feel like in order to really grasp…
