The Road Is Difficult

We were promised that in this life, we will have tribulations. But, what are tribulations? I don’t think that there is one answer to this question, because for each of us, tribulations can come in all different sizes and forms. Yet, the road of tribulations is the one that will lead us to heaven. The…

For Starters and Onward Lookers

This is going to be a short post that reflects what I have been needing to discover lately! In life, sometimes you need to… START Then, start again… Then, start again… And again… Then, again… Keep going… Don’t stop! I guess that life is just a bunch of starts!!! Somethings (if not most!) will eventually…

Receiving Praise While Knowing Your Worth

Practically, bringing glory to God has to happen in the heart first. Receiving praise can be a two-edged sword. On the one hand, you may be going through a rough patch and you need some words to lift up your spirit, which is good. On the other hand, you may already be fairly proud of…

I am sorry again that it has come to this, Mr. Priest, but you needed it…if you listen and put your wall of defense to the side for a minute. I love and respect you, but I must begin this conversation with you now, before it is too late. So, could I have a minute…

Un-inspired…

For the creative, there will be days when you cannot create. You reach a block where nothing is coming out…Your inspiration is absent and, even though you have many ideas and thoughts, it is hard to express what you are thinking. I think this block has to do with how we judge our own work….

The Joy of Sonship

Have you ever heard these phrases: “Too good to be true…” “I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop…” “Nothing really changes around here…” “Its all the same…” “I never deserved it anyways…” Maybe someone has told you that “you don’t know how to be happy.” Or…maybe you didn’t hear this before.

CREATIVITY
