Motivation.

What keeps you motivated? I remember grappling with this question over a period of time- maybe ten years. I was so discouraged with myself. I couldn’t remain motivated. But I was also depressed, in a long marriage that had run its course, and I need a new take on life. With motivation, it seemed as…

A Psalm For Refuge

I wrote a psalm . My first psalm ever. I thought psalm writers had all died and gone to heaven. 🤷🏽‍♀️ I never knew I could be one of them. Psalmists don’t usually know they’re psalmists until they lamented and sorrowed about something mighty weighty. This was me after we lost our mother in law…

Chaplain Contemplations: Freedom.

I was trying to think of what walking in my calling looks like. So I began to think about for the first time in my life, my ” heart feels full.” I mean, I get this full feeling sometimes to the point I cannot even explain the emotion, and then I emotionally feel as if…

New Occupation, New Name.

Chaplain Jennifer. That’s what they call me. I’m still getting used to calling myself that. I’m learning everyone that’s in the hospital is not here just for physical healing. Mental, emotional, spiritual and other kinds of healings exist, as well. There is in forgiveness, emotional pain, and other kinds of relief we need to deal…

Supplication. /Chaplain Contemplations 3

I had chapel yesterday at work , and I shared on the power of supplication. I shared from my book, Red Sea a Situations. Supplication is that Dee prayer that sets your hearts desire before a living God. That deep, earnest sincere and affectionate prayer that brings you close to Gods heart. Taking our cares…

Intuition & Love… How Did I Get Here?

How did I  get here? Ever ask yourself that  question? I once  thought  about writing on  Intuition and Love a while  ago.  But I  wasn’t ready.  I had to decide how transparent I wanted to be. Then I realized that I needed to see how the two overlap. I didn’t have enough knowledge.  Or so…

Settling.

Greener Pastures: (My post on Better Self-Worth& Esteem) Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is My Shepherd. I lack nothing.” I’m learning to appreciate everything these days….. And I am blessed to be able to be living in a place where I’ve been for seven years. It’s been a journey of acceptance; yet also esteem. Approximately 13…

Identity in My Community.

Last night was amazing. I spent an hour and a half in community with folk in my church community. Some were members  of my church, and others were not. We all had three things in common: Purpose, Passion And Potential. Our desire is to reach for this, collectively. Some just wanted to be in a…

Developing An Identity is Like Making HUGE Spiderwebs.

Sometimes finding our selves is like making a spider web. It’s intricate, detailed, contemplative and sometimes involves a lot of work. I think I began this journey quite honestly, at a young age. Maybe even before age eleven. Eleven was when my life changed. My Dad decided to live differently. To become a man and…

Indwelling.

Indwelling. Is there such a word? I was reading today in the Word how being in fellowship with friends and others and also God-we learn how to be built up, and grow. We make more room for growth by allowing for friendships; and sometimes those friendships have a God-nature, if you will that comforts. That’s…
