Contemplations of a Chaplain on (Self).

In the places where I am most transparent with Self, I find strength & resiliency. I am learning what I think really matters. I am learning that people have an inner compass they can trust to bring them through any adversity, and they only need to tap into that strength to make it happen.

I have learned this after finishing my first unit of chaplaincy. There is something given to being in complete transparency with those you trust. It rids shame, confusion and brings about a certain clarity, & depth of character. If you want to work on becoming more authentic, choose to be transparent, and share your life with those who need change. Show them how you’ve overcome. Gather together and learn from one another.

Trust God.

Through God, trust people, authentically.

Get to know yourself . Spend time with you. Be honest with yourself.

Bring your realness to the table and then push restart and begin again.

Rid yourself the shame, and celebrate the good, in life. Shame takes away your sense of positive pride. It crushes your reputation and your integrity. One can rebuild their integrity by choosing to be better and live better very intentionally. Don’t allow what others think of you to mold you.
Allow God to transform you from the inside out. Receive His Grace His mercy, His love. And forgive yourself and go on.

Chaplain Contemplations 1

Psalm 42:7 “Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.”

So when November began, I saw myself writing profusely. I was not sure what it was I was writing; however I wanted to express my newfound self found my chaplaincy program. (Decided to add it here.) I feel like I’ve been given water in a sun-parched land. 🥰 Kissed right here and falling in love again.  So I’m definitely showing myself. Strong.💪🏾

November is the month I get to bare all. To share my Journey  to becoming. Yeah, it’s the new title to Michelle Obama’s book, but I also  have a story to tell. Listen in.

Just standing tall and firm today in Who My Father has called me to be!

I have had a few changes recently in my career and this magnificent shift – if you will had had me seeking and exploring new borders. I am so honored and (grateful) to be a chaplain.

I didn’t think I had this in me… But God! He calls us to the deep, and Deep calls unto Deep! I sing songs of praise to Him for my “deep waters” because it’s what help the folk at the hospital, get through! And me too!

Deep means “depth” in the Hebrew. It’s in those places of depth, God increases my faith. I am learning faith has a certain texture- a substance.. and in that God produces more faith. Don’t fight your experience. Just surrender to it, & you’ll find He will do the same-  to increase your faith. And increased faith helps you reach your dreams.
