His Grace is Sufficient

His Grace is Sufficient

I had a complaint-no I had many complaints.  These complaints I reviewed, meditated on, and professed every morning as I sat in my time with the Lord. 

Appointed Turning Points

Appointed Turning Points

I personally dread unwanted transitions in life. But without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Working it Out

Working it Out

When I was finally able to get the pictures from my wedding, I cherished them more than ever because they are the last pictures I have of my father.

Experiencing God’s Love

Experiencing God’s Love

For many years, I admired God’s love – I was born and raised in a Christian family, went to church regularly, was legalistic about my beliefs, and was afraid of the Lord instead of having the fear of the Lord.

When it Rains…

When it Rains…

At one point in my life, I cried out to the Lord, “When will I get to have joy, peace and happiness? When will it be my turn?!”  The rain never seemed to end, I felt like my life had been flooded.

How I Found My True Calling

At the beginning of the year,  I started teaching and mentoring young ladies about faith, personal growth and character development. I also started writing and will publish my first book very soon. Dare I say that I feel like a square peg in a square hole.

Where There Is Peace

Where There Is Peace

This is a guest poem by veteran Diva writer Ana Nunez. A little over a year ago, Ana submitted a devotional called “Fully Known and Truly Loved” (read that here.) and this year, she said she was working on some poetry. I feel like Ana’s poem, “Where There Is Peace” is such a good companion piece to that first devotional about God’s love for us!
