Sim Spiritually Inspired

This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace. – Colossians 1:6

Kingdom Friendships

God has carefully placed people in your life. We serve a God of purpose and I believe everything happens for a reason. We don’t operate on chance. Good or bad, God is fully aware of your situation and He allows us to be stretched so that we might grow. Let me also remind you that the enemy/devil comes to steal (your joy)*, kill (your potential)* and destroy (your friendships)*. The enemy

FOCUS on God + A Giveaway! (VIDEO)

Am I the only one who struggles to focus? Well, check out my latest YouTube video.   For someone like me, it’s imperative that I intentionally cancel out distractions and focus on God using various tools/resources. Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. – Proverbs 16:3    

Desperate Was Never Attractive #LetThatManGo

In life.. You’ll make tons of mistakes. You may even become a repeat offender. You’ll “fall into” things you don’t necessarily have any business with. You’ll act hypocritically in the spur of the moment. Life happens, things happen.. Just get back up. You’ll be tempted to shame yourself or sit in guilt. I challenge you to get back up.  People will say many things and go to the ends of the earth to

Stop! Don’t Say That!

“Speaking worry gives voice to the lies of the enemy.” – Pastor Emma Squibb Our first lady couldn’t have said it any better. We mindlessly recite, “life and death lies in the power of the tongue.” We’re talking about life and death here! “Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3) “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised

“Embrace Grace”

You see, sometimes, you’ll be tempted to beat yourself up. I’m right here right now. Tempted to write yourself off as a failure because you haven’t lived up to your standards. You haven’t accomplished all that you want to accomplish. You feel stuck; as though you can’t pick yourself up and your sad about it. Guilty because you feel stuck. Guilty because your coping mechanisms aren’t working. Guilty because you’ve decided

Your Purpose is Precious

Abba, I’ve been caught up in “doing.” I confess that I’ve been distracted… Dependent on immature faith & nearly overtaken by fear. Lord, On that day, nothing else will mater. It’ll just be me & you. No convention. No retreat. No program. Just us. How have I lived to honor and serve you? Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.

Faith Got Me To Harvard

Testimony time!!!! This is my story of faith. When you know God has a plan, don’t waste time or energy fretting. You know the song that goes “when Jesus says yes, nobody can say no” #IssaFact. For about a month and a half, I’d been planning a trip to Harvard for my organization (I lead the African Students Association at my College). This was ASA’s first ever off-campus trip, so

Abba, I really wanted to punch her…

Abba, I really wanted to punch her but you’ve changed my heart and I thank you. Abba, I’ve become extremely irritable, help me. Abba, I was in a rage, I can’t recall the last time I was that angry. Abba, She has hurt me, disrespected me and nearly humiliated me. My name, she defamed my name! Abba, Where does this process of forgiveness start? Abba, But, she’s evil. She has

I Had An Encounter With God (Video)

  In this video I testify of how I recently experienced God. I pray you’re blessed by this video. How have you encountered God? If you haven’t, make your requests known to God. Be intentional, focused and persistent. God will come through! 9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the

Oh, Word?

Word! The Word. Read along with me. I’ve been meditating on these passages. I pray that God grants us spiritual wisdom and understanding as we read. (Colossians 1:9-10) <3 “Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” – Jeremiah 33:3 Nothing Can Separate Us From The Love Of God What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for
