If Jesus Had Instagram…

Culture Shift I remember when I was in elementary and middle school, social media didn’t even exist. Not that it wasn’t on the rise, but it didn’t exist for me. Friends meant people that I hung out with… people I saw and had physical interaction with. The physical presence directly correlated to who were my [...]

Just One Grain of Sand

Imagine... ...you’re walking along the beach and you have one bucket with you. It’s not your job to collect all of the sand but a part of you feels responsible for doing so. You can only collect one grain of sand at a time if you want to do it well and sometimes it could [...]

The Story: Justice is Redemption (Pt. 1)

By | 2018-06-13T21:00:57+00:00 January 25th, 2018|Justice Is Redemption|

In the Beginning...  When I first heard the phrase ‘Justice is Redemption’, it didn’t make much sense to me. That was because I didn’t know what those words truly meant and how they were used in the Bible. Therefore, the search for what ‘Justice is Redemption’ began with discovering what these words mean.  I found [...]

Set The Captive Free

Complacent Church Why is it that we try walking humbly with God without doing anything? Why is it that we want God's grace for ourselves but want God's wrath for everyone else? Why do we try to love God, but not love people? For the longest time, I would go to church and do the [...]

The Funny Thing about Obedience

By | 2018-06-13T21:04:40+00:00 January 23rd, 2018|Compassion Corp, Discipleship|

When I Said, Yes... When I said yes to God, I had no idea what that meant. When I said yes to ministry, I had no idea how to serve. When I said yes to Haiti, I had no idea how my life would change. That’s the funny thing about obedience, when we say yes [...]

Tangible Partnership

Status updates, Instagram posts, blogs, newsletters- all written on a computer screen from Haiti, hoping to connect with you in America. I love writing, taking photos, and capturing stories, but what I love most is the way these things connect me to people. It can become difficult to write so much from a screen, that [...]

The Lodestar

The boat of my life thrashes through the waves, the bottom of the sea pleading to pull me down. It's as if the darkness of the waters will move on forever, and even the realization that land exists somewhere slips my mind. What is land when the bellowing waters exist before me in a way [...]

You May Not See It Now...  I remember, when I was younger, my mom would tell me to do my homework. She would then walk upstairs to take care of my brothers. I had two choices. I could either do my homework or I could do anything else. Every time, I would chose the latter [...]

Open My Eyes To Care

“Blessed is he…who keeps faith forever; Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free; The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the [...]

Drink Justice

Today, I am thinking of racial diversity and justice. Drink Justice On another Martin Luther King, Jr. day, I think it is appropriate to highlight the importance of JUSTICE. In the words of Lecrae, “I pray we don’t celebrate MLK and ignore the legacy of equality and injustice he was fighting for.” Biblical justice is [...]
