How to Face Adversity

How to Face Adversity

Queen,   We all go through adversity. Tough times that leave us thinking we'll never make it through. Tough times that leave us wondering if God is listening. I think part of the reason these situations are so difficult to navigate through is because we are hoping for a certain resolution and timeframe. We know how God should solve a certain problem and just how He should do it. In other words, we want full control over the situation. When the situation doesn't resolve how and when we want, we're left feeling frustrated with ourselves and God.     While...

You Were Born to Stand Out

You Were Born to Stand Out

Queens,  You and I were never created to be like everyone else. I spent so many of my adolescent years trying to fit in with others. If I did manage to fit in, I always ended up feeling like I betrayed who I really was. That would be because as queens, we were created to stand out. We were never meant to blend in with this world. If you’re feeling frustrated when you’re compromising your values for others, this is the reason. Standing out isn’t always a good thing in our eyes. Queen, pray that God will give you the...

How to Stay Grounded

Queen,  Have you ever heard of the saying “Hope for the best but prepare for the worst”? If I’m being honest, I’ve used it a few times.

It’s a cop out just in case something good doesn’t happen, we can say: “well I knew something bad was going to happen anyway.” It’s a coping mechanism for when we don’t get the outcome we were hoping for. Here’s the thing about hope: we have to place it in God and not an outcome. Hope is the anchor of...

Love Yourself

Queens,     We’re commanded to love others as we love ourselves. I think we forget about the second part of this commandment: as we love ourselves. Self-love is so important but why do we put it off? Sometimes it’s easier to make time for other people and things before ourselves. There are times we even treat other people kinder than we treat ourselves. Think about this: would you talk to others they way you talk to yourself? Are you thoughts about yourself kind or negative? If we aren’t careful, this can become a negative pattern. So how do you break...

What to do with Fear and Anxiety

What to do with Fear and Anxiety

Queens,    Just do the next 24 hours well. So many times, we get caught up in something that happens tomorrow, next week or month. Of course it’s good to be aware of situations but don’t become so anxious and afraid of the future that you don’t live for today. When we become so filled with anxiety about tomorrow, you know what we’re not doing? Enjoying today. We miss out on what God is doing right now. Fear and anxiety of the future take us away from the present. The truth is, the future belongs to God, not us. He’ll...
