When People Don’t Give Back

I have a really big heart for helping people and giving.
And it can be hard sometimes because people don’t always reciprocate the help/care you give-
Like, a good nine times out of ten they don’t-
And the human response to kindness and love and care not being reciprocated is to shut it off. We begin to feel used and decide we’re better off not being so kind and caring only for ourselves and our needs because no one else will look out for us in similar fashion.
But anytime I face a situation where I have the desire to help someone that is wrought with a fear of feeling/being used or ‘shortchanged’ again, I just remember that giving is WHO I AM. It’s who God created me to be.

Let’s Talk About Relationships

Cue eye roll.
You know why I rarely blog about relationships, and waiting for God’s best for you, and how to be in a godly relationship and all that wonderful stuff Christian women eat up like crazy????
Well, other than the fact that I have the patience of a two-year old,  I’m single, and I’m totally unqualified to tell people how to practically live out a God-first relationship? lol
Because the devil has spent so much time deceiving women into believing that their value to the Kingdom of God is dependent on them getting married/having a husband.

Speech is Not Free

In the age of social media where anyone and everyone has the platform to air their views, I don’t think the first amendment has ever been more used… Or abused.
People take the opportunity to justify anything they say by their constitutional right to say whatever they want. And so journalists rip apart politicians. Politicians tear down opponents. Artists mock religion. Religion chastises and criticizes those they deem to be outside the realm of salvation. People take the liberty they’ve been afforded to say whatever they want with no regard for the impact that ‘free speech’ has on the life of another human being.
But free speech is not free.

Taking Nations

I’ve been trying to find the right way to express the understanding I’ve received about our mantle as Christians over the past few days, and I really couldn’t find the words until today.
Last night, a midst flooding in the capital of Accra, there was an explosion at a gas station that left almost a hundred people dead. All over social media there are videos of news agencies displaying the gore of unidentified charred bodies strewn across the ground. The response? A flurry of government accusations, sorrow, pointed fingers and “Pray For Ghana” hashtags.
#PrayForGhana
I’ll be honest- I don’t remember the last time I prayed for Ghana- or any country for that matter.
