Ain’t Nobody Coming To See You!

Ain’t Nobody Coming To See You!

One of my favorite movies is the Temptations mini series. It chronicles the narrative of one of the most influential music groups in history. Comprised of many famous “one liners,” one that I find ways to incorporate often in conversation is that of David Ruffin when he utters, “Ain’t nobody coming to see you Otis!” I holler every time. Essentially,…

Find Yourself in Worship

Find Yourself in Worship

Last Sunday a glorious thing happened! My dear friend was ordained as a Minister. I was so excited and blessed to be in the number to witness the public acknowledgement of such an enormous responsibility. I was adorned in a dance garment because I was to minister in dance. As I sat in the sanctuary considering that on more occasions…

The King Who Knocked

The King Who Knocked

Anything in the book of Revelation was scary to me as a kid (low key I’m still a little shaken). I am a visual learner, so the imagery in the book was enough to cause me concern. Yet, one verse always gave me comfort. It was Revelation 3:20, ““Look at me. I stand at the door. I knock. If you…

Say It Again For the People in the Back!

Say It Again For the People in the Back!

Growing up, I liked sitting in the back of the bus. Sidebar: I know, it’s what Sister Rosa fought against, but the fun happened at the back of the bus, on field trips, on the way to Lindblom (#SWOOP) to pom pon competitions and other events. While sitting in the back provided entertainment, one also missed out on critical information…

He Floors Me Every Time

He Floors Me Every Time

Even when it feels as though the rug has been pulled out from under you, there is a structural foundation holding you up – ensuring your safety, ensuring your resolve – that is God! He will never leave you without a “leg” to stand upon. He will uphold you with His right hand! He will come to see about you,…

Bearing Fruit

Bearing Fruit

A few weeks ago while visiting family, I noticed something quite peculiar. There was a tree that appeared to be uprooted from the ground, yet the leaves were green and it was apparent that fruit was forthcoming. I was in awe. I was told that the tree was knocked over during the fall from a storm and no one disturbed…

Sky Blue Jesus!

Sky Blue Jesus!

Tis Spring! It’s not my favorite season, but I welcome it with open, pollen filled arms. Yes, the only season that I hold love and dislike in close community. I appreciate and welcome the songs of the birds, the blooming of flowers and warmness of days, but I detest the itchy, watery eyes and everything covered in yellowish-green, spurring coughing…

Shower Kneed

Shower Kneed

I’ve danced for as long as my memory can recall. In high school, creating a formation with some choreographed movement with a portion of the team being on their knees was always a go to move and a show stopper. Later in life, when I transitioned to leading praise and worship through dance, I found myself again creating movement that…

Jesus been checking for you!

Jesus been checking for you!

I became curious about the blue checkmark besides a person’s profile on social media platforms. Apparently, and I say this in my limited internet research, that a person or entity that has enough followers, articles or interviews, or compilation of media engagement in order to secure the coveted notariety. It affirms one’s credibility. It is as one author said, “It…

Praxis, No Filter with Shaniece Gamble

Praxis, No Filter with Shaniece Gamble

“The reality is, my prayers don’t change God.  But, I am convinced prayer changes me.  Praying boldly boots me out of that stale place of religious habit into authentic connection with God Himself.” – Lysa TerKeurst Today’s episode is summed up in reference to the aforementioned quote. Listen to Shaniece Gamble unfold the power and transformation of prayer in her…
