We're all traveling on this journey, this pilgrim's progression. However, our passports aren't made up of a little book that one can pull out and show at every gate. Instead, I'm speaking about the passport that sits deep within us and is only visible by the Greatest Gatekeeper. We've been to and through places not … Continue reading

Beauty in Darkness

Valleys aren't always fun! But I believe that they're necessary. How else can we ascend the next peak? My dark valleys, like so many others, have all threatened to undo me. Whether the trial is an emotional journey of a broken heart/spirit or a battle of physical illness the circumstance through a bullhorn yelled, "you're done, … Continue reading Beauty in Darkness

A Blossoming Breakthrough

Ever find yourself feeling restless, unsettled, distracted and disturbed? Worried-we fear, doubting- we react. We see pain, we feel sadness, and we want to be angry because anger feels strong! I have spent years letting my pain/hurt turn into anger. As time steals along, bitterness hardens a part of my heart, a part of my … Continue reading A Blossoming Breakthrough

I'm a hot-headed, Brooklyn raised, Puerto Rican. I grew up around sayings like, "Que nadie se ponga, conmigo" (Nobody, better mess or start with me!) and "God, don't like ugly!"  I spent many years living by those sayings and others that I don't find appropriate for this PG blog. Point being, you mess with me or mines, … Continue reading

And sometimes we cry

Not because we've lost faith. Not because we feel like God isn't there, or doesn't care. Not because we carry bitterness or unforgiveness. But simply, because it hurts. It hurts to watch your child, hurt. It hurts to come across old anniversary cards written by a now, stranger. It hurts to say goodbye to a … Continue reading And sometimes we cry

Him; Now

Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven... (Matthew 6:10) Often I daydream of Heaven. My eyes have been blessed to see just some of His creative beauty here on earth, yet I can only attempt to imagine the marvelous landscapes and vistas that await us. To think- not a … Continue reading Him; Now

A Love that heals

During an intimate time of prayer and worship, the Lord began to speak into my heart. I cried out like David, search my heart O'Lord! He is a faithful Father and when He searches our hearts He brings to light what we have kept in darkness. He wants to free us from all of our … Continue reading A Love that heals

Bring it!

It's so very comforting to know that we are loved by a God whose track record is filled with the miraculous! His business, the impossible; His standings-infinite. Every impossibility faced by man was and continues to be overcome and far surpassed than the wildest of imaginations by none other, than, you guessed it-Our Lord, God! … Continue reading Bring it!

Nothing to say

Ever find yourself speechless? Speechless at the awe and beauty of God's creation. Becoming surprisingly aware of the woman your little girl has become. Or holding your son for the first time, knowing that one day his strong arms might hold you. Those are just a few examples I can think of. But have you … Continue reading Nothing to say

Love is Blind

We've all heard the saying, "Love is blind," with both negative and positive connotations. Negatively, the love of something or someone that harms you can blind you from seeing the harm that comes from seeking it out.  Positively, love can blind you from seeing what others see and may deem "unacceptable" like those found in discrimination-color, … Continue reading Love is Blind
