A – Z

There are 24 letters between 'A' and 'Z' in the alphabet. Twenty four entire letters. There are millions of words that begin with letters 'B' through 'Y'. The entire vastness of God is not something we can easily comprehend. Something as trivial as letters have an extremely vital place in human life. We speak using…

Got to be real

You are so incredible. There is nothing or no one on this planet as You as You are. You are truly one of a kind. That said, act like it! I walk through the mall and other stores and I see replica after replica of some idea of what a woman is as told to…

Reminder

I'm beautiful. God did a great job on me!!! Self confidence starts with the belief that God makes no mistakes. His creation is wonderful. I am His creation. I am Eryka & I am Wonderful.

35!

My parents celebrated 35 years of marriage on August 10! That said, I've come to accept that my love for marriage comes from my upbringing. They keep sticking it out. They keep going. They keep changing and becoming better, but best of all, they're doing life together. So we went to dinner. 32 of our…

Perfect LOVE triumphs over fear

God is PERFECT LOVE. That said, once He becomes everything to a person, Love begins to work in every area of the person's life. I was very afraid of snakes until I met Christ. Nothing scares me in the sense that it used to. I no longer feel like things can get me. Adults have…

BOLD

Bold. The word alone is so heavy. Bold when spoken even sounds hard. Bold. Boldness. Boldly. Bold ME. To dream of Marriage is one thing. To take hold of it, well that's different. Two individual souls meet and immediately something communicates to each soul that the other is the one whom they were made to…

Consistent Disciple

Discipline & Disciple are nearly the same word. Discipline is Self-Control in action. It's quite powerful. A disciple's job is to demonstrate discipline in whichever area they're called to. That's literally the point of a disciple: to be an example. I doubt anyone is born disciplined. Im sure parents everywhere would love if all their…

Brain Fart

I've being trying to think of something great and profound to post, but I've come up with nothing. I had a pretty good day today. I looked awesome, btw! I accompanied Daddy to the doctor. I visited my Grandmother. She's almost 95! What a blessing!! This afternoon, I even saw my crush. He kissed me….

Smoothe Operator

I genuinely enjoy smoothies. I enjoy the machines that make them and the creativity and fun of the recipes. Mom even ordered me a pineapple corer to help with the process! As much as I enjoy my fruity, vegetable delights, Depression, Anger and the other emotional lies my brain tells me, hinder my smoothie making….

Was I?

"I was…" some times followed by a testimony; always preceding an experience. To be in the state of "was", one must have undergone a change. Was means past tense; not no more; used to be. Was is stronger than we have allowed it to be. For me, my was is "married." I was married. It's…

Irony

Just last night I dug up 7 years of emotions and recounted the story of the marriage that didn't last. One main character in that story was Bishop Richard Allmon who I also mentioned briefly in last night's post… I just got off from a long hard day of work. My dad decided to make…
