Note To Self

Food for the Soul Monday: Because I can catch attitude in these moments…

*A little nourishment for your soul to get you going*

As you may know from experience, driving can make things come out in you that you thought you had put on the altar many altar calls ago! I’ve had to call on the Lord several times in my driving, you know, to have Him intervene.

The other day, I had quite an interesting experience that taught me a great lesson.

I was waiting at a red light on the far right lane. Now, most times you can make a right turn when there are no cars coming in the perpendicular lane- unless there is a sign that says ‘NO RIGHT TURN AT RED LIGHT.” I try to oblige depending on where I have to be at a certain time ;-) And that day, I was in no particular rush, so I obliged.

That is until the car behind me started honking at me and through the rear view window, I can see her get upset as she is gesturing that I make the turn. I’m starting to feel the attitude in me rise up as I try to signal to her that I can’t make the right turn because of the sign. Clearly she didn’t see it. And I’m doing that with all the attitude I could muster up.

She continues to honk. I continue to wait. And then at one point get her attention through my side mirror and say while signaling to look at the sign that I am trying to follow and she should be too!

And then she signals back that the sign was not for this lane that we were in, it was for the lane on the left of us. And when I looked closer, she was right.

She was right. I was wrong.

In that moment, every ounce of me wanted pride to have its way and stay in that lane until the light turned green or signal to her that she could go around me if she thought she was right. Because she was. I had misunderstood the sign and even caught attitude with it.

But the Holy Spirit softened me and when she showed me I was looking at the wrong sign, I signaled back showing her that I was wrong and reconfirmed if I can go and she nodded and so I made the turn.

I didn’t catch an attitude and I knew that the anger she felt with me dissipated.  As soon as I made the turn, she caught up to the side of me and I smiled and said thank you and she smiled and waved.

So here is the small yet giant life lesson I learned:

The decision to let go of pride in that moment and in any other moment dismantles the work of the enemy to provoke anger in others. 

The moment I decided to own the fact that I didn’t understand the sign and actually made the turn was the difference between the smile and wave as we drove by each other or the death stare that we would or could have given each other.

There are going to be many times in life where we will have to make the decision to let our pride take a back seat so we can dismantle the work of the enemy. The rise of anger. The rise of attitude. The rise of division. The rise of relationships being destroyed.  And if we do, the kingdom always advances. But if we don’t, we let the enemy throw a party.

I don’t want him to have fun.

Food for the Soul Monday: Let’s Get Serious…

*A little nourishment for your soul to get you going*

I’m fascinated by the relationship that God had with the Israelites in the Old Testament. It was anything but boring. It was adventurous…a constant reminder that God’s love for them was unrelenting. No matter how hard-headed they were, His heart never hardened towards them. It grieved but it wasn’t hardened.

What God desired more than anything was their seriousness about Him. It seemed like they took Him for granted. They no longer feared His presence. They no longer remembered His deliverance and they no longer understood His mercy. It all became too familiar to them.

But God’s love didn’t run dry. It grieved. But it didn’t run dry.

It’s the same with us. His love doesn’t run dry but it does grieve when He sees a heart torn between two worlds: the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness. He desires a serious commitment to Him.

God had His prophet Samuel share His heart to the Israelites in 1 Samuel 7:3:

If you are really serious about wanting to return to the LORD, get rid of your foreign gods and your images of Ashtoreth. Determine to obey only the LORD…”

No more dabbling in and out. He is looking for commitment, but not a forceful one, but one ravished by His love. Compelled by it. Restrained by it. Freed by it. A kind of commitment that honors and respects the work He is doing in your life. it’s real. It’s deep. It’s good!

I pray today that we would recommit to another level of seriousness with our relationship with God. He’s looking for serious people. All-in people. Unwavering people. Let it show in how you listen. In how you obey. In how you serve. In how you choose. Above all, in how you live.

“So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides…” Colossians 3:1 (MSG)

Food for the Soul Monday: Don’t Be Like Me!

*A little nourishment for your soul to get you going*

Graduation season has come upon us and I can’t help but feel elated when I see my Facebook timeline filled with caps and gowns and diplomas! The genuine joy on the faces of those who spent years working diligently to get to this point is a blessing!

And for many, they now have the expectation to be rewarded for this diligence by attaining a job…as any of us would.

This takes me back to when I graduated undergrad and how the elation of graduation gradually wore off as I spent my summer applying for jobs. I applied. Applied again. Applied some more until fear and doubt started to take a comfortable seat within me. Why wasn’t anyone responding? Didn’t God know that I had gone to a good school, received great education and now it was time to work?

I started drifting into a place of what felt like depression. I felt hopeless and purposeless.

God forgot about me.

Or so I thought.

Little did I know at that point that behind the curtains, God was working away—orchestrating the timing of the story He had already written for me.  The story that would have the job I didn’t apply for, nor was even looking into be the one that found me. The story that would take me to another state where I knew no one and would have me rely on Him to show me why I was there. The story that after 7 years of seeing His purposes and plans really become higher and greater than what I could have ever imagined, I now trust in a way that I didn’t even know I could.

What am I saying? I’m saying don’t be like me. I’m saying that I have learned and seen Him work in a way that urges me to let others know…He really knows what He’s doing. Don’t let fear and doubt take residence. Trust in His ways. When the jobs you’re applying to don’t accept you, I promise, it will be OK. In fact, it is OK.

He is the one writing your story. The sooner you come to understand that, the freer you will be. You aren’t on man’s timeline. God’s timeline and His purposes will prevail for your life if you keep your gaze on Him. He will blow your mind!

May this verse be your mantra:

Many plans occupy the mind of a man,
but the Lord’s purposes will prevail.”(Prov. 19:21)

Peace, love and blessings,


10 Lessons I’ve learned in 2015….

Well…today is the last day of 2015! It’s gone by so quickly but the richness of my experiences are still marinating and doing their work in me. I’ve learned many things and some things I’ve always known were more solidified and became more real this year. God is all about growing us into His likeness. And every experience has the potential to do that. Here are 10 lessons I’ve learned that make me want to chase God even more:

Details matter:

The same God who orchestrated a census to be taken during the time of Mary’s pregnancy so that Joseph would have to travel over 100 miles with her to get to his hometown, Bethlehem, so he could be accounted for, while all along being in the very place that God had planned for Jesus to be born, (and oh by the way, Bethlehem was also the place where the Passover lambs are known to be prepared) shows me that God is a God of detail. **sorry for the run-on sentence but it was too good to break up lol***

He orders steps. Where you are. Where you are working. Who He has surrounding you—those are details that matter to God. We may not always understand why things happen the way they do, but they matter to the greater story He is writing. And we must recognize it as such; not some forgotten piece. Know that details matter to God. Let Him work it out! “The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail of their lives”! (Psalm 37:23 NLT)

God’s Voice is greater than people’s affirmation:

God speaks. The question is have we learned to recognize His voice. And when we have, what He says to us won’t always be affirmed by people around us. Even those we see as our spiritual mentors. No, sometimes, God wants to make sure we are relying on Him and not man. So when He says to do something and we’re looking for affirmation and we don’t get it so we choose not to do it, we’re disobeying. Trust God’s voice and move accordingly. He will confirm it the way He desires. “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow me” (John 10:27)

 Go to God with everything:

Did I say everything? Everything! The Holy Spirit directs and desires to put His touch on everything we aspire to do. I’ve learned to invite Him in my decisions. My conversations. My meetings. My writing…and the list goes on. I promise it makes a difference because you’ve chosen to commit it [whatever it is] to the Lord and what is committed to Him is safe.  “In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.” (Proverbs 3:6)

It’s OK to draw away:

I’m known to be a social butterfly. Can’t deny I love people. I love being around people. I love being involved and engaged. BUT I’ve also learned that too much of people and not enough alone time does something to me. I had a hard time admitting it because, somehow, I thought I was not being authentic to know people knew of me or that people would think that I was being mean and all the irrational thoughts that could drive you up a wall! Drawing away is mandatory. Spending time by yourself, enjoying your own company is maturity. Engaging yourself is important. Listening to your thoughts and responding accordingly is also important. Allowing that time for God to speak without distractions. Filling you so you can pour back out is a necessity for the Kingdom. And I’m learning that I don’t have to apologize or give reason to why I want to be alone. I don’t have to feel guilty. So know yourself enough to know when you need to draw away from people and go to that secret place. It’s OK! “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” (Luke 5:16)

 Think about what you talk about:

What we talk about is reflective of what we think about. Our conversations matter. Idle talk doesn’t please God. I’m not saying that joking and having fun is completely thrown out the window, but I’ve learned to pay attention to what I talk about consistently. Am I talking about things of substance? Things that build rather than destroy? I have to say, I’m grateful for the conversations I’ve had this past year. They challenged me. Edified me. And most importantly, they’ve helped me grow spiritually and mentally. “But avoid irreverent and empty chatter, which will only lead to more ungodliness” (2 Timothy 2:16)

Not everyone will understand you…it’s OK:

The beauty of being created by God is how unique He has made each of us. This uniqueness is also seen in our relationship with Him. Each of us, though experiencing the same salvation through Christ, has a unique and intimate relationship with Him. I’ve learned that not everyone will understand that relationship so they will have a hard time understanding you. It’s OK. Don’t be discouraged. Remain authentic to how He’s created you. How He speaks to you. How you respond to Him. Let the fruit you bear speak for you. “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14).

 Sin is real but His grace is power:

No we don’t keep on sinning because grace exists. We receive grace because sin exists. I’ve learned more and more this year that outside the grace of God, I am weak. Very weak. And I’ve found comfort in the vulnerability that Paul displayed when he said that when he wanted to do good, evil was right there with him. I’ve recognized that I am filthy as rags. And I am a fool to think that I am above sin. The conviction of the Holy Spirit should cause us run to the cross, not away from it. Only the enemy runs with us and even cheers us on when we run towards condemnation. But when we choose to run to the cross, he backs away. For it is there he knows he has no power. “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1)


DON’T stay in “your lane”:

I’ve committed to live this life emptying myself of everything God has put within me. Because we serve a limitless God, that DNA is within us. The more I dig deep in the Lord, the more He draws out of me the gifts He’s placed in me and it doesn’t have to stay in a “lane” as we often hear. I sing. I dance. I write. I act. I play sports. I teach. I lead. I use what’s been given to me to glorify God ultimately and to serve people because I’m expressing the many facets of His creation. I’m not saying because I do those things, a ministry or an organization has to come out of it. Motives must always be in check!  I’m saying that you have the freedom to express it without feeling like you are outside of “your lane” (whatever that means).  “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)

Surrender your desires to Him:

Desires are not bad. And I learned this year that even the desires He puts in us must be surrendered to Him so that He could show us how and when and why. A great example is the journey of putting on WITHIN Ministry’s first retreat this year and what God taught me through that for which I will forever be grateful. Check out story here.

Don’t be afraid of the word Justice:

The tragedies that we’ve seen throughout this year on racism have truly been disheartening. And speaking up on those injustices doesn’t go against our faith.  Justice and God aren’t exclusive of one another.  In fact justice is part of our worship to the Lord. They go together. We don’t have to be afraid. God isn’t intimated by this conversation. He actually would love to give us the wisdom and the grace to bring light to this so that His work can be seen in greater measures through us. He wants to make sure our conversations and actions are motivated by His love because our responsibility is to make sure that our righteous indignation doesn’t morph into self-righteousness, which eventually turns into hateful actions.

These are serious times. While the enemy wreaks havoc in this world, we as believers can’t sit back and be OK with it. If there was ever a time that we need God’s presence in our individual lives AND our churches, it’s now. We have to increase our capacity to receive God’s love so that we don’t grow cold and bitter. We have to increase our sensitivity to the Spirit of God so that can fight this battle that isn’t against flesh and blood but against principalities and dark forces. He’s given us the weapons. We just have to know how to use them.  “Learn to do right. Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow” (Isaiah 1:17)



Food for the Soul Monday: Unforced Rhythms of Grace

*A little nourishment for your soul to get you goin’*

The year is winding down.  (17 more days to be exact;-)

If we took the time at this moment to reflect on this past year, I am sure all of us can think of good moments. Bad moments. Achievements. Failures. Lessons. And so much more that, once again, confirms that this life is truly a journey.

It’s normal to anticipate a fresh start when January 1st arrives, but there is a passage that tells me that a fresh start is never confined to time; rather, it’s confined to choice. It’s never the wrong time to choose a new mindset or a new habit or a new trajectory. It’s never the wrong time to accept what God continues to offer. And He says this to us:

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly” (Matthew 11:28-30 MSG)

Truth is we get tired. We burn out, but God doesn’t. He only knows how to meet the needs of our weariness. Choose today to apply this promise to your life. I love how He says that we will “Learn the Unforced rhythms of Grace.”

We get consumed by the timelines we set for ourselves. We get overwhelmed by the pressures of society. We get discouraged by the failures of our efforts.

And at times, we revert to striving in the flesh what has been completed for us by the Spirit of God.

But this walk is meant to be led by unforced, uncontrived rhythms of His grace. It’s not meant to drain. It’s meant to uplift. Fortify. Cultivate. Flourish. Revive. It’s mean to give LIFE!

I pray you rest upon His word and come away with Him. Let me help you rediscover what you thought you lost. Let Him remove the burdens you’re carrying so that He can show you what it feels to live freely and lightly. And the best part is that you don’t have to wait til January 1stToday is the day.

Peace, love and blessings,


Because I used to be afraid to talk about racism…

I used to be afraid to talk about racism. I found myself believing that talking about this apparent problem was going against my faith; that somehow I couldn’t be a Christian and talk about this issue because it would mean that I would be on the side of causing division rather than unity.

Then I came to realize how foolish that was. So foolish that it sounded like I was saying that I was afraid to talk about sin because somehow talking about sin meant that I wasn’t talking about the loving God who offered forgiveness and grace.

Here is why I have been freed to talk about this issue: Because the root of racism isn’t institutional. The act of institutionalization of racism is the action of sinful hearts.

And here is what I have always known: We have a Savior who helps us confront our sin while offering us amazing, radical grace.

Racism didn’t appear out of thin air. And the U.S isn’t the only place that it takes place. Since the fall of man, disunity has been the pattern created. The construct of disunity based on one’s physical feature has continued to inform how one is treated. It’s real. And God isn’t caught off guard by it. He’s been dealing with it way before the U.S came into the picture. He’s simply sickened by it.

One because it’s sin. And two because it seeks to negate the work He has done for “everyone.” Not just fair skinned. Not dark skinned. Not wide nosed. Not thin nosed.


As believers, ones who have been renewed in our minds on how we view God and one another, we have been called to a ministry of reconciliation.


“One man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the same boat. He included everyone in His death so that everyone could also be included in His life, a resurrection life, a far better life than people every lived on their own.

Because of this decision, we don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong as you know. We certainly don’t look at Him that way anymore. Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is create new….We’re Christ representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. (2 Corinthians 5: 14-20 MSG)

 Powerful passage that reminds us that we have been called to act, speak, think and live in such a way that brings the distance between a person and God closer while at the same time God drawing the distance between one another closer. It reminds us that the construct of race as a dividing factor can longer be upheld as believers. It reminds us that race can’t be our idol.

There are many conversations that have erupted because of racism. And the enemy is so cunning with where he wants this conversation to lead humanity. However, we can’t be led to where he wants us to go—which is a constant state of division.

 So that’s why we as believers have to talk about racism…

Let’s talk about it because we as believers will be confronted by it in our lives and we have to know how to respond.

Let’s talk about it not for the sake of stirring up hate and division but as believers,  if we don’t, it will stir hate and division.

Let’s talk about it because its ugly head has made its way into the body of Christ and if we as His body can’t even take on the ministry of reconciliation we are called to take on, then who will?

Let’s talk about it because we have seen the power of the Gospel change our hearts and minds towards one another and we have seen Love overcome and now this message burns in our hearts for the world.

Let’s talk about it because God calls us to be the voice of those who are still victims of this sin.

Let’s talk about it because it’s darkness and our actions bring light. Why are we hiding our light under a bushel?

Let’s talk about it because we believe God can use us to deconstruct individual minds that can eventually change institutions.

Let’s talk about it because we believe that His Gospel doesn’t stop at just preaching Jesus, it’s living Jesus. And I don’t know if you’ve read the book of the gospels because you would know that Christ talked about what others tried to hide from: SIN.

We don’t have to be afraid. God isn’t intimated by this conversation. He actually would love to give us the wisdom and the grace to bring light to this so that His work can be seen in greater measures through us. He wants to make sure our conversations and actions are motivated by His love because our responsibility is to make sure that our righteous indignation doesn’t morph into self-righteousness which eventually turns into hateful actions.

These are serious times. While the enemy wreaks havoc in this world, we as believers can’t sit back and be OK with it. If there was ever a time that we need God’s presence in our individual lives AND our churches, it’s now. We have to increase our capacity to receive God’s love so that we don’t grow cold and bitter. We have to increase our sensitivity to the Spirit of God so that can fight this battle that isn’t against flesh and blood but against principalities and dark forces. He’s given us the weapons. We just have to know how to use them.

The world is dying to see what true reconciliation looks like and we as ambassadors of reconciliation have the power to show it to them through the way we come together in unity. There is so much work to be done but we have to privilege of moving the needle forward.

There is so much more I desire to say and desire to write but I will wait for another post so that I can leave you with the WORDS that truly matter: God’s Word. Here is what Jesus prays in John 17:


“I’m praying not only for them [disciples]

But also for those who will believe in me

Because of them and their witness about me.

The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind-

Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you,

So they might be one heart and mind with us.

Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me.

The same glory you gave me, I gave them,

So they will be as unified and together as we are-

I in them and you in me.

Then they’ll be mature in this oneness.

And give the godless world evidence.

That you’ve sent me and loved them.

In the same you’ve loved me.”


Because some opportunities NEVER come back…#urgencyofNOW

I never wanted to believe it when people would tell me that there were some opportunities that present themselves that would never present themselves again if not taken at that moment.

In my mind, I thought, well if God wanted me to have it, then it would come again. And I learned more recently, that it isn’t all the way true. Because, there are some opportunities that when God gives it to you, it’s because the impact it has for that moment can’t be duplicated. It’s for that NOW. And yes, God can redeem it but it won’t have the same impact that it could have had.

Here is my story:

I have a colleague who has been sick for a while now. One day, I was running late to work and ended up parking in the garage that I normally don’t park in but because of the way I think, I told God, “Well…I’m late. I guess you should use me even in my tardiness.”

Be careful what you tell God to do. He will do it.  And He did.

As I pull in, I see my co-worker whom I admire very much and enjoy talking to and learning form because of the person that they are. Brilliant in thought. Humorous. Hard worker. And…for the past 5 years, I’ve known that God had a hand on his life whether he really knew it or not.

We ended up parking next to each other and walked and talked till we got to the elevator. As he’s talking, Holy Spirit said to me, “Tell him you want to pray for him and that you believe in the power of healing.” Now…when I heard this, it made sense to me because of what I had been experiencing in God at that point. I had been studying healing and have been asking God for opportunities to pray and believe for healing for people. And it seemed like this was one of those opportunities.


Fear set in. Flesh set in. Thoughts of feeling as if that would just be too weird set in. I couldn’t see myself stopping in the middle of this garage deck and laying hands on him.

And so as we are talking about his health, my spirit is screaming, “PRAY.”

My flesh is screaming “NOT NOW”.

And within that split second, I missed the opportunity.

I walked away ashamed. Asking God to forgive me. And He did. But it still stung.

Fast forward a day ago when I find out that this same co-worker was diagnosed with bone cancer.

My heart hurt for him. I cried that he had to go through this. And the Lord quickly reminded me of that moment in that garage deck where I had that opportunity to pray for him.

What IF I had done it? What IF that moment could have kept this moment from happening?

And you know what…I could live in the WHAT IF’s and wallow in guilt. But that’s not what God wanted. I knew that in that moment when God reminded me of that time, it was so that I received the urgency of the NOWs that God gives us in doing something OUTSIDE of fear, for His glory.

He says in His word:

 “As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work” (John 9:4, NIV).

God will redeem this. I know He will because now there will be opportunities to pray for him and share Jesus with him in these next moments of his journey. I still believe for healing. Still believing that God will use this illness to draw him closer.

But that other time will NEVER come again. And yes, a part of me still wonders. But now more of me says, I will be ready for the next opportunity. I will do the work that he sends me to do.

AND, for that to happen, I need to remain in His presence so I can be sensitive to His presence in my daily walk and let go of the fear of looking weird. Being rejected. Or any other nonsense. And you know what puts that more into perspective for me?  When I know that we have brothers and sisters being persecuted and beheaded in the Middle East all for the cause of Christ! And we can’t even pray for people?

These  times are serious. If I’ve ever believed that, it is NOW.

God is moving. God is shaking this Earth so that His sons and daughters can wake up and start PROCLAIMING who He is in all parts of life. In our jobs. Homes. Communities. Schools. Everywhere we are. He is.

And God WILL show up! I promise you. He WILL show up. Believe Him and trust that He wants to use you NOW!

Because as hard as it is to say, some opportunities will never come again.


27 Years…27 Lessons: God, Life, Myself and People


Today is a special day for me and my better half–my TWIN MELKAM!!  We celebrate 27 years of life!!  I  acknowledge the LOVE and  faithfulness of God over my life in these past 27 years. So hard to believe that I am here already.   I’ve enjoyed the ride—all the bumpy roads, Smooth roads, Hills. Plains. Flowers. Rain. Every last bit of it! And I’ve learned SO much and in honor of my 27th birthday, I wanted to share 27 lessons I’ve learned about God, life, myself and people in my 27 years of life:-)

Note to Self #7: Timing is Everything

Note to Self: If God reminds us that He has made everything beautiful in its time, then surely, things can be real ugly when it’s not their time. Don’t rush it. Don’t manipulate it. Flow in the unforced rhythms of His grace. God knows what He is talking about.

Note to Self #5: He Orders Our Steps

Note to Self: I’m reminded that God is always up to something! I’m brought back to when He first told me to move to Jersey. What if I had said no because I was comfortable with where I was? Or fearful? I didn’t know saying yes to this would bring me to where I am now, which has continued the good work He has begun in me.(Phil1:6) So I encourage you, move when God tells you to move…Not just in location but in whatever action . Don’t delay the good work that He has begun in you because it’s not just for you.


Here is a song that puts into melody what my heart has felt…

“Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders…”
