What To Do When People Don’t Believe In You

September 15, 2017 // 0 Comments

When people don’t believe in you, you always have the power to believe in yourself.  Just because people don’t believe in you, never let them discourage you from what you are supposed to being doing.  Whatever it is that you are trying to do was put in you and NOT put in them and that is for a reason. If you want to know what to do when people don’t believe in You, I want to look at the story of David.  We all know David from the Bible right?  There have been so many statues built about him from all the classic artists (not sure why he is always naked though, but okay).  We [...]

How To Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

June 21, 2017 // 0 Comments

If there is anything I want to impress upon you in this post, it is to stop comparing yourself to others. I know that this can be easier said than done, so that is why I am here to help you learn how to do it. The first thing you need to understand is that you are you. You are the only you created and there will never be another you. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 I know what you are thinking we are not all prophets and that is so true. BUT what I want you to see in this [...]

My First New York City Trip. Where to Eat and Where to Go! Budget Friendly.

April 11, 2017 // 0 Comments

This was my First New York City Trip. I had been dying to take a New York City Trip for, forever, and I finally got to go.  If you want to travel to New York it is a trip worth taking. I live in the DC area and this was my first time going to New York despite it only being a train ride away.  What did surprise me the most about New York was the New York life. The show Sex in the city makes it seems so glamorous, and it is in a way.  But since I am a city girl, it really was just another city and the New York life was just really similar to DC life, South Beach Life (see my blog here), [...]

What To Do When You Face Judgmental Christians In Church

April 7, 2017 // 0 Comments

Judgmental Christians are becoming all too common and are giving Christians a bad name.  Some of these judgmental Christians seem to think that because they are Christian that they have authority to judge everyone. And this behavior is not Godly nor does it glorify God in any way shape on form. I am a Christian, but I too sometimes wonder, “Why are Christians so mean?” and there have been times that I have been left feeling rejected by the church. It can be difficult when you want to further your Christian walk and go to church, but as soon as you step into the building then there are [...]

How To Pray Prayers That Get Answered

March 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

We all want to pray, prayers that get answered.  No matter what you pray for or what you pray about, God hears our prayers; even if that means that your prayers are not answered the way you like. To answer the question “how to you pray” or how to pray prayers that get answered, you must first learn how God looks at prayers.    The first lesson you need to learn is that God will and can give us what we want, but that does not mean that He will.  It is always your right to pray for anything that you want, but God reserves the right to not answer your prayer.  I have prayed for [...]

March 7, 2017 // 0 Comments

Knowing how to understand the Bible is essential if you want to start following what’s in it.  I know for many people that reading the Bible can be an overwhelming task. I often here that people do not like reading the Bible because they do not understand it or because they do not like to read.  I used to be one of those people who use to read twenty pages of the Bible in the Old King James version and then wonder why I did not know what in the world I just reading. When I finally learned how to read the Bible properly, I found that it was one of the most enjoyable things that I like [...]

The Power of Positive Thinking ~ A Christian Perspective

February 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

Often time when we think of the power of positive thinking we think of it as some new aged philosophy.  It is hard for Christians to relate to it because we do not know if it is Biblical or now.  Where I am here to tell you that the power of positive thinking is Godly and it is something that God wants us to practice as Christians. I believe that one of better things that God gave us that separates us from the rest of the animals is our minds. The way we think, the way we invent, the way we dream, and the way we live are amazing things. Just as this man can use his mind to do all of these [...]
