The winds of change over the past two months have shaken me up. I have been through seasons of great shaking, but this… This season has been very unique in the sense that it’s shaken and then taken things from me that I didn’t even know existed within the realms of my spirit, soul, heart… Continue reading Here… Not There
"Run Hard. Persevere. Keep Moving Forward." I tell myself these things every single day. They are the inner motivation I need to remain constant and consistent to the path I’m walking down with Holy Spirit. And the motivation is good. It does help me press forward in moments where I could become complacent; however, I… Continue reading Run Hard
It’s dark, tight and completely isolated, but not in a divisive, evil or wicked way. More so in a deeply concealed and ingeniously crafted manner. I am confident. I am strong. I firmly believe moving forward with great courage and tremendous hope is the only way now. And I hear Him saying, “Run with perseverance.… Continue reading Seasonal Milestones
A few days ago, my mentor prayed with me. While she was praying, she said, “I see you on a path. You’re walking across jagged rocks. It’s uncomfortable. And you might feel like you’ve gotten off of the path God has placed you on, but you haven’t. You must move forward to get to the… Continue reading The Jagged Path
"Ew... You're whining and complaining again Amanda!! Remember, we've outgrown this place. And I know it's challenging to understand where Holy Spirit is leading and why He's pointing "that way next," but we don't whine and complain because of our heart and soul's lack of understanding.

I was kind of vague when speaking about capacity because I didn't really delve into the areas inside of me that are being pressed to the limit. So here we go... Being specific about where I'm growing with… Continue reading Satisfied?
I don’t want to write. Honest to God, I don’t want to at all. It’s become somewhat of a challenge to keep moving forward in this area.But I must… I must mustard up what’s inside of me to get this done because it’s what Holy Spirit is asking. Which makes me wonder… Where is my… Continue reading What’s Going On In There?
At the beginning of January I heard Holy Spirit say, “Something very scary is about to happen in the city and the world, but I will protect you and your family. Do not be afraid. Do not live in fear. Just continue to pray. Pray for your family and friends... Pray that I keep my… Continue reading Get Lost
"Help. Me." is what I quietly screamed at my sister across the gym yesterday. The weight I tried to load onto my shoulders for lunges was entirely too heavy for me to lift. Of course she quickly looked at me like, "What am I supposed to do Amanda?! You think I can help you lift… Continue reading “Help. Me.”
If I take you and shake you, will you break? Will you crack under the pressure of things that are out of your control? If I ask you, “what defines you?” and then searched for that truth would your truth and that truth be synonymous? Now... When you’re shaken, I hope you don’t move. I… Continue reading The Fortress
