The Shell Doesn't Matter: Intertwining Your Faith with Everyday Life

Have you ever people-watched? Thanksgiving day, while waiting in the car at the gas station, I did. There were a lot of people going in and coming out of the store, and the atmosphere was so bright and clear that my mind began to wonder. What was God thinking about when He created us? We are all so different and unique. Some of us have long hair, while others have short hair. Some are tall and skinny, and others are round. We all have different skin tones and different ethnicities.

Then I thought about the word of God. It states that He created us in His image and likeness, not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness. I wondered why God was showing me this, and what he wanted me to learn.

Last night, before I went to bed, I planned to set up a post for my women's group, Devotionals for Christian Women, but I forgot and logged out. I was tired and unfocused. So, this morning, I posted something encouraging for women with a multicultural image.

We left to attend church, and in the service, God reminded me that we are all created in His image and likeness. His word is for everyone, and although I don't attend a multicultural church, He calls us to carry the word to all. It doesn't matter what your outer shell looks like. What matters is that the word is shared lovingly and truthfully to all. In the message, I was instructed not to be afraid. He knows my heart intends to please Him. So, when I make mistakes, he'll always be with me.

  • Allow God to lead you. “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.“ Psalm 119:105

  • Wait on clarity from the Lord. “God is not a God of confusion, but of peace.” 1 Corinthians 14:33

  • Don’t be afraid to do the will of the Lord. “For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.” Isaiah 41:13

By doing these things…over time, I’ve been learning how to incorporate Christ into every area of my life.

Below are two books that God has inspired me to write. "The Flip Side" and "Blinded By Sight: The Heart Matters" both available now.

So… what’s this book about?

“The Flip Side” depicts the possible feelings and emotions of lesser-known Biblical characters as they navigated their lives in the shadows of the more popular characters in the Bible. While the Bible gives us snippets of their stories, we are usually left in the dark about their true motives, desires, and thoughts concerning the situations they are in. However, one certainty is that despite how little we know about these characters, they were often the catalysts to pivotal moments in the main characters’ lives.

So… what’s this book about?

Join me on a journey of self-discovery. “Blinded by Sight - The Heart Matters” is a compilation of short biblical devotions. These stories are not conclusive. They are depictions of how God is revealing my heart to me.

My prayer is, Lord, make it real for me, show me your heart, show me my heart, and give me the wisdom to change what hinders my relationship with you. I am learning that my perception is my biggest obstacle it affects my mind, what I think, and how I process my experiences. What I have experienced in my mind is expressed through my feelings and these experiences dictate my choices either consciously or subconsciously.

This devotional will allow you to explore and evaluate your past and present situations that have hindered you from seeing the heart of the matter. Simply put, look at the heart – it does matter. Your future depends on it!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4
