Rejoice! You Won’t See This Enemy Again!

Exodus 14:13 (New American Standard Bible) But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. Today, I simply want to encourage you that the Lord shares with us time and time again of how he fights our battles. It is important for us to not let our hearts become troubled as we cast our cares on God. He will surely keep us in perfect peace as our mind is stayed on him.  The above passage of scripture should make us rejoice that our God speaks peace to our hearts. “Do not fear!” Our caring and loving Father does not want us to operate in fear. Then he says stand by and see the salvation of the Lord. We don’t have…

The Love Story of Grace

Our intimate journey with Christ is full of Him expressing and exposing more of his grace in our everyday lives. I was speaking with a friend who shared a very violent past. Parents that made some horrible choices that caused a lot of determent to this person as a child and as a middle-aged adult, years of dysfunction, seemingly has paralyzed as though left trapped in the past. The person began to share their flaws and paused because I seemed undaunted by their issues. Then stated, you aren’t going to beat me up, correct me, tell me how horrible of a Christian I am. My reply, I need God’s grace and you need God’s grace. I am not about throwing you away yet building you up through Christ.  What you are sharing with me is that you, as I and as we all, have mismanaged some areas in life. We are all…

In Due Season

There is a story behind this. I’m not afraid of new things yet when I find something agreeable to my body I’m usually faithful and just don’t follow the “new fad or perfume.” The story is my family (Mack, Isaiah Currie , De Vaughn Richmond , & Joshua Currie) bought the things I love for Mother’s Day. One of my son’s (Joshua Currie ) kept in mind I was DUE an extra gift 🎁 yet they ran out of supply. Joshua was so conscientious about making sure I got my Gift 🎁 weeks after Mother’s Day he insisted I slate the date on my calendar of when they said they would have more in stock. He did NOT want me to FORGET what was due to me. Although God never runs out of stock, he has slated an appointed time for you to receive. It’s not denied yet delayed. It’s…

Beauty in a Lifestyle of Discipline & Maturity

  The featured picture is of the beautiful Ella Sanford. As a blogger that writes devotionals and beauty blogs inspired by faith, I decided I would share her art form. I had the pleasure of being her make-up artist as I worked with photographer, Hal Todd. In her featured picture and the additional poses, the readers will witness her gracefulness yet it comes from minutes, hours, days, and years of practicing her art form. Although her dance and acrobatic exercises are graceful, she packs power and strength that is the result of a disciplined lifestyle and commitment to her craft. She has matured in her acrobatics aerobatics due her consistency. As a makeup artist, I remember certain looks I had to practice and no matter how many networks, celebrities, photoshoots, brides, and women and teens seeking such seasoned experience for their events, I must continue hone my craft, further my…

CANVAS

  canvas   Today, I was inspired to write this blog post by capturing my 15-year-old son’s reflection of his daily devotional. We ask our son, Joshua Currie, to read a passage of scripture and/or devotional and share his reflection on what he has read. It does not have to be a thesis or dissertation. In fact, he can send myself and my spouse a quick text, at least a paragraph, to share his thoughts on what is unlocked for him as he reflects on what he has read. 1 Listen to my words, O Lord, give heed to my sighing and groaning. 2 Hear the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to You do I pray. 3 In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart]….
