Never Alone

Glorious Monday morning, friends! If God is for you, who can come against you? Even if their word weaponry or exclusionary behaviors build walls between you, these temporary tactics won’t prosper. Always remember who your shield is. He walks with you always. Blessings, y’all! Take a few minutes to worship with Tori and Kirk on…

SHAKE, Shake, shake – Part II

Shedding that Cloak of Cliches is harder than you think — not just because of the weight of it all — but because it’s like a second skin. It’s thick — insulating you from whatever tries to get to you. It’s a wall, a barrier, an armor, a fence, a border wall, a cocoon, a…

Aaaah

Coming home has been a breath of fresh air. Let me clarify because I know you might be thinking, is this chic in the same Louisiana whose sidewalks are so hot that you can cook your Sunday dinner on them? Is she breathing in a special kind of air reserved for God’s chosen people? The…

Hangin’ In There

Merry Christmas Eve, friends! I’m a little late with my post today…just trying to settle down and settle into this holiday break. It’s interesting how wound up we sometimes get. Even when a well-deserved respite is in view, we want to sprint but find ourselves crawling there instead because we’re nearly out of steam, running…

Keep Moving

Good morning, friends! Thanks for stopping by before heading to work or school. If you’re off today or doing a little Christmas shopping, I won’t keep you long.┬áIf you’ve been following my blog since its inception in 2015, you know that I love telling stories about how God speaks to me. He just meets me…

Choose Me

Today is the first time in a while that I’ve written a Music Monday post, and I’m happy to be back. I’ve missed ministering in this way. While on break, I spent some time following God’s lead and truly listening to his directives about where to go and what to do. When I listen to…

Day 28 – Proceed With Caution

Today is a new day, and it’s ripe with opportunities to love and serve the Lord. I know it’s going to be a great day because I woke up before my alarm. That was the first miracle of the day. Then, as I headed downstairs, I could hear a sweet chorus of chirping coming from…

Day 27 – Caution

Driving is probably my least favorite thing to do. I see it as a dreaded chore — worse than latrine duty. Perhaps it’s because I missed that whole right of passage as a teenager since we didn’t have a car. Most of my friends got a permit and a license in high school, and a…

Day 7 – Every Creation Surrenders

We all surrender eventually, but we struggle to surrender all. I gave a talk to a group of beautiful women this past weekend. As I made my way to nearly every woman in attendance, I noticed a common theme. When I introduced myself as Michelle, the response was the same at every exchange — “Oh,…
