Three D's To Avoid

temp-post-image

There are many things in life that I have grown to appreciate. Without them, I'm sure that I would find myself in some frustrating situations. Yes, I do enjoy my technical gadgets, but that's not what I'm referring to at this time

I'm thinking of warning signs. You know, like the road signs that say, "warning construction ahead." Or, what about the warning signs on prescription medication? I appreciate the warning label that states you can take the pills with or without food.

Over the last year, I've experienced a few feelings that I didn't initially pick up as dangerous, but realized over a period; those feelings were causing harmful side effects. I thought that I would take out time and w...

Shine, Slay, and Repeat

Have you ever had an encounter with someone at just the right time in your life and it changed everything?


Well, that happened to me this year. I will never forget my encounter with a man that I met who left a positive impression on me. In fact, I do not remember his name, but I will never forget his kindness and compassion towards me at one of the roughest moments of my life. You see, I walked in his office, and he did something that surprised me from the start of our conversation. He listened! Yep, he had every reason to take over the conversation and tell me what he thought but instead he listened.

I did not share it with him at the time, but the moment he displayed to me that he ca...

DO YOU HAVE M.A.T. FRIENDS?

M – Motivates you to pray
A – Affirms your feelings
T – Trustworthy with your pain

When I reflect on a story in the bible where a band of brothers carried their friend to Jesus to be made well, I can’t help but think of the circle of friends I have around me.


Luke 5:18-20 states,” Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”

OUR WORDS HAVE POWER

temp-post-image

After reading in James, I had to come clean with myself about my words, tone, and response to myself and others.


James 3:5-6 (MSG) “It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell.”


This hit home for me. Let me start by saying, my name is Erika Greene, and there are times that I struggle with the “untamed tongue” syndrome. I have struggled with keeping quiet most of my life. I can remember a time in high school w...

THE CHOICE IS YOURS

I've shared that I was a victim of childhood abuse in my previous blogs. I can guarantee you will read or hear about it in the future as well. Why? Because it's something that caused deep wounds for me. I've had to cry, dig deep, and uncover all the ugly, so I could find the treasures buried underneath the pain.

Several years ago I complete one of Beth Moore's Bible studies, Breaking Free. I’ve completed many in my life but this one was life changing for me. She mentions generational curses and when broken, it impacts thousands later in life. I'm not sure about you, but the thought of taking a step to change my life, knowing it would help my son, his children, and years to come was my ...

WHAT DETERMINES YOUR SELF-WORTH?

temp-post-image

I previously shared that I experienced childhood sexual abuse in one of my previous blog posts and spent a couple of years in counseling trying to heal from such a traumatic event. There were so many layers involved. I committed to doing the hard work because I finally realized I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I entered the doors with a heavy wounded heart and after several sessions, I left feeling as if a load was lifted. No, it didn't happen overnight. There are times I still struggle with self-worth. The difference is now when it surfaces, I stop the downward spiral of unworthiness and remind myself of the truth. The truth is that I am worthy to be loved, and I do not have ...

WHAT LETTER WOULD YOU WRITE TO YOURSELF?

If I had to write a letter to myself before my sister passed away knowing what I know now, this is what it would say:

temp-post-image

Hey there,


Why are you waiting? Live! Get started now! Your sister sees so much in you. She sees the woman that she helped create. She doesn't think she's your mother— she knows that she's your older sister. But you know how older sisters are: they expect everything from you that they didn't expect from themselves. They want you to travel more, learn more and do more.

Sometimes, you're going to wonder if she's ever pleased with what you've accomplished. But no matter how unimpressed she seems, she's proud deep down. It's just that she knows your real potential, and she's...

TRUST THE PROCESS

First, let me say, “Where does the time go?” What happened to the little guy holding the little football? My son is now 22 years old. Like every mom, I think I have the most handsome kid in the world. I’m currently married but spent most of his life raising him as a single mother. Oh yes! There are many lessons this young man has taught me.

(Mom and Cool "X")

I remember when Xavier was in the 4th grade. I enjoyed having lunch with him and his friends. What mother doesn’t want to sit around the table with fourth graders and hear what they talk about? One day I decided it was time to have lunch with him again That morning I told him before he left for school, I would b...
