I’ve been reading through the Gospels and really meditating on its words. I feel like I am trying to read what God is writing and it is really changing my outlook. I’ve shed plenty tears and have been anxious about my everyday life. God’s lesson to me recently has been, “don’t worry about that.”
*ding* TIME TO CHECK IN!! We’ve made it to mid-May and almost half-way through 2017. How are your New Years Resolutions/Themes/Goals doing? Are you still holding on tight? Did you give up months ago? Let’s talk.
I typically would have written another Friday Vibe on music that I have stumbled upon but I just couldn’t this week. I have listened to Joey Bada$$’s All-Amerikkkan Badass and Goldlink’s At What Cost and believe both are amazing projects, but this week I wanted to talk about how music is helping me through a change.
Drink More Water. Besides it being the supremely infectious catchphrase of Chicago’s Mick Jenkins. He takes water to symbolize the truth in all of its forms. Meanwhile, it has become one of my goals for life. I never really knew how to drink water until I grew up and put the sugary drinks away.

I have been fasting intermittently for two weeks now. Isaiah 58 (Check Page 2 of the link) speaks on the purpose of a day of fasting, from God’s perspective, as a day of Celebration. I wanted to share my fasting method, schedule, reasoning, routine, and lessons so far from this new habit of mine.

It may not work out this way but God wants me to share this moment, uncertainty and all, to be a futureContinue reading “Resting in Him over Striving Alone”
I’ve talked before about my grandmother and the way she molded my life for the better. She had a cameo as my angel in my Letter to Black Women and frankly, I can talk about her until I’m blue in the face.
