The Spirit Is Willing, But The Flesh Is Weak


“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41. I’ve never given this verse any thought until the fourth day of my 7 Day fast, today. I chose this scripture because I’m realizing that the more you’re blessed with — a higher position, a big house and etc. — the more discipline it takes to … Continue reading The Spirit Is Willing, But The Flesh Is Weak

Beauty For Ashes


My son’s first football scrimmage was today. It was his first game on Mighty Mites. To my surprise, they played their little hearts out, winning 2 scrimmages and tying one. Before we stepped foot on the field this morning, we prayed.

When Giving Up Is Not An Option


It’s been over two months into unemployment, and ironically, I had spent over 7 years of my life as an Employment Specialist before getting laid off. Standing on the other side of the fence is quite humbling. However, everything happens for a reason. Besides, unemployment seems to be a small disadvantage compared to the devastation that the Louisiana flood victims have experienced since Friday, which left a total of 13 people dead and 30,000 … Continue reading When Giving Up Is Not An Option

Putting Yourself First Can Be Hurtful But Necessary


The phrase “self-love” and “putting yourself first” can easily be taken out of content, especially if you take in consideration moral and Biblical factors, which tell us to put others first and to love your neighbor as yourself. But the term “putting yourself first” in this post means not allowing yourself harm when the enemy uses others to deter you from your purpose in life.
