Speaking Life to a Changing World


I would like to thank my readers, followers, and social media community for your engagement over the years. I would also like to thank my new followers that have just become part of my community in 2016.

I can remember when God called me to create a blog based on my life experiences. It has been an amazing experience in how God has led me to scriptures and experiences that helped me find direction in developing my online ministry. The blog has come a long way since then.

There have been a few updates on my blog and I wanted to highlight the new additions that will be coming in 2017.

Expanding Social Engagement

I would like to invite you to join my new Facebook community. I’m currently in the process of creating an online ministry where we can connect, engage, and edify each other. It will be an interactive space and all posts and comments will be monitored to ensure a positive, encouraging environment to build integrity, trust, and authenticity.

Live Chat

I’ve also added an online chat on the blog page on the sidebar. You’re welcome to chat with me live regarding a topic, question, concern, prayer request, or testimony.  Providing that I’m online at the time, we will be able to chat in real-time. (Please note the chat line will be public). There is a donation that is requested by the app developer after signing up).

Let’s Get Visual

You can connect with me on my Pinterest boards:  Inspirational Bliss or Writing with Purpose

I look forward to your continued partnerships and unexpected blessings that will unfold in 2017. I hope you will partner with me in whichever medium or social media channel you prefer. Thank you once again. Please feel free to share my post with friends and family.

Wishing you a Happy New Year filled with an overflow of abundance and prosperity and may you and your family walk in peace, love, and light in 2017 and beyond!

Your Sister in Christ,

Violence in America

“Where there is no vision the people perish.” Proverbs 29:18

What is happening to America? As I watched the news unfold, I am horrified to see the world unravel in chaos within the school system as well as on every level in our society. What has gone wrong in America where school yards have become battlegrounds? Where shopping malls, churches and movie theaters have become targets of warfare?


The sense of morals and values as well as respect for life has been lost by youth and our adults. The media has also played a  role in the social conditions where entertainment is being fed to the  population as “Trash TV,”   emphasizing murders, strong explicit sexual content and  profanity in our daily lives. It’s also reflected in music, movies  and other forms of entertainment. When someone constantly  feeds off of negativity,subconsciously it eventually affects their  psychological, spiritual, emotional and mental state. Not to mention all that they may be dealing with in their own lives. Others fester hatred in their hearts and do not have any value or regard for life. Period.


With the high level of social and economic problems in our  country, people are losing hope for their future. It is evident in the  continued senseless death of innocent lives being lost. This is a  disgrace to our Nation and in the eyes of God.

It states in the Bible, the Lord will cut down the wicked. Although the wicked seems to reign at this present time, God is still in control and has victory in the end. Satan is defeated.

In the act of suicide, the people who are projecting violence on the innocent truly believe they’re escaping their evil deeds, but everyone will face judgement upon the earth. You cannot escape the consequences of your actions through death.

This act of violence is demonic but disguised as entertainment. The devil is a master illusionist and the master of lies. He is taking hold of minds to commit his work and to gain lost souls.

It also doesn’t help that the mentally ill, hate group or ex-con has the access to purchase and carry guns on the streets of America. We are living in a modern-day wild wild west.

With the increase of random violence, these acts are becoming desensitized. Something has to change for the better and not the worse.

Our vision has to be uplifted to a higher standard for what we accept and what is fed to us in this country. When you start accepting and compromising truth, morals, values, character and integrity, you will eventually start to experience the unravel of an individual, group, system, family, community, society and a nation.

It starts with the individual. There is power in one, but there is also power in the masses. Prayer was taken out of the school system and replaced with guns, bullying, sexual abuse and other forms of violence. This is unacceptable behavior and should not be tolerated.

This country has become much too passive which is causing additional problems. The mentality of the masses has to change for our survival. The answer is not bringing more guns to protect our children in the school system or in public places, but to eliminate the use of guns in this country.

There is a problem when we have to use guns as a control method to eradicate the problem. This country is out of control if you have to seek military measures to secure and protect our children and our nation. This is not the solution.

We are losing our children and our future. In the process, generation upon generation is lost. It’s time to take back what the devil has stolen from us. The proper vision put to action will lead us. How can one see clearly if they don’t carry a Godly vision to see effectively?

When the blind leads the blind, they fall into a ditch. We need the vision of God who is the Father of wisdom, grace, mercy, discernment and love to led the way. It’s time to raise the standard of the people because the season is here.

2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.
6 The Lord lifts up the humble;
He casts the wicked down to the ground.

Psalms 147:2-6 (KJV)
