Diary of a depressed black woman

Saved and Depressed

I am a Christian. I suffer from depression. If you are like me and fall into the intersection of Christian and depression sufferer, you can understand the constant internal tug-of-war. The Bible tells you to think on the things that are right, pure, lovely (Philippians 4:8) but, depression has you...

overcoming fear

Overcoming My Fear: The Perfectionist In Me

“Lord have mercy, Jesus,” is the prayer I prayed just before I hit the record button on my phone. I’m preparing to record my first YouTube video. I’ve made all the preparation needed for the video to be a success. I have my note laid out; I’ve practiced my introduction...

Remember The Cross: The Build Up (Palm Sunday)

During the time that Jesus walked the Earth, His people were being oppressed by the ruthless Roman empire. The Jews desire for the promised Messiah was very great among the people, but many didn’t view Jesus as the Savior the God of Abraham promised. He didn’t fit what they thought...

Remember The Cross: My Reflection

  Tomorrow will mark the start of the Christian Holy Week beginning with Palm Sunday and concluding a week later on Resurrection Sunday. While I’m not a big Lent participator, I do like to reflect on my Lord and Savior sacrifice during Holy week. This year I wanted to reflect...

virtuous woman

Becoming Virtuous: Understanding That Woman

  Hey, I get it if you’re saying to yourself, not another post about that Proverbs 31 woman, that overachieving, superwoman that Christian woman aspires to be, even though, her example is difficult to follow. The virtuous woman is looked to as the standard of what a good wife, woman,...
