Have you ever written prayers? Like not official like the Lord’s prayer, but a prayer just for yourself? Maybe you can amend it and share it with others, but it’s personal. Personal, but something you can read everyday, day and night and still be relevant. I would compare it to writing affirmations on Post-Its and sticking them to your wall. I want to print out this prayer and put it all on my wall and grow and not be stagnant anymore. I feel the weight of my stagnation and my spirit is begging me to move. It’s like being stuck in quick sand. It’s driving me crazy!

Revelations from church

Spiritually, I’m in a desert. I think I have good ideas for how to help myself, but I’m so disoriented from being in this desert that I can’t actually do much to help myself. I know everyone has dry seasons, but I hate them. I think I need a community group to be surrounded and in the prayers of more people of God. I think just talking out how I feel about God and our unfortunately stagnant relationship will help me focus on actually working through this season instead of just praying it was over. I’m very bad at just dealing with things or being patient about things unless I know why I’m having to deal with them or why I need to be patient. And of course, we’re not always going to know God’s plan. He might reveal a piece of His plan or He might just tell you to trust Him. And trusting Him can be scary if you thought your vision was in line with God’s, but for some reason just isn’t working out. Along with scary, it can be frustrating and draining. But all we can do is continue to bring our thoughts, prayers, and worries to God even when it seems like He’s not speaking to us. We have to remember God is always there regardless of how the situation looks or how you feel. 

Stay positive and keep praying, my friends. Be blessed!


I’ve been seeing 1 am a little too often and leaving my pillow a little too early in the morning. And I hope God hears me when I drift off to sleep in the middle of my prayers. I know He knows my heart, that He knows our prayers even before we say them but I feel bad for breaking off our conversations.


Something strange happened today. I noticed I was mimicking someone’s body stance like the psychological thing that has been floating around Tumblr talks about. And when I noticed it, I immediately changed my stance and thought about how I got there in the first place (I’m just now wondering if he was mimicking me, but probably not).

This happened with two guys (the psychological thing is linked to attraction). I know for the second guy I definitely mimicked him because he had his hand by his face and chin and I noticed that I was touching my chin and had my hand near my mouth. I immediately moved my hand when I realized this. 

It was so weird. My realizations made me feel wrong/bad. Like I wasn’t supposed to notice it or I shouldn’t be mimicking people lol. 

Has this happened to you?

P.S. For the inquiring minds, one of the guys was one of the distractingly handsome men that I’ve mentioned before. And in retrospect, I’m not too surprised about mimicking him, but for the other guy, that was a shock.


I hate when people say black people don’t riot when black on black crime happens. Well, we’re not smiling about it. And I don’t recall a case of black on black crime happening and the criminals not being persecuted. Correct me if I’m wrong. Please. When black on black crime happens, there are usually investigations and leads. Justice isn’t always served in those cases. The bad guys aren’t always caught. But proper protocol is followed. That’s why people are upset about Mike Brown. That’s why people were upset about Trayvon Martin. That’s why people were upset about Sean Bell. And that’s why people will continue to be upset. Proper protocol is not being followed. People who are SUSPECTED of a crime get detained. This officer hasn’t even been detained. Why not?

When he decides he doesn’t love you anymore,
here is what you do: Move on quietly. Love yourself
loudly.

This is so important.

And if he ever comes back around, be strong enough to say no

Are we open to “God’s surprises”? Or are we closed and fearful before the newness of the Holy Spirit? Do we have the courage to strike out along the new paths which God’s newness sets before us, or do we resist?

Hopefully the regrets quiet down so I can get some sleep…
