God Doesn't Fail Us So Change Your Wishes To Prayers

It is a word that we all use. “Wish me luck!” “I wish I had that.” “I wish I was prettier.”

I wish.

I wish..

I wish...

But why are you putting this world in your own hands?

We all sang the song as we grew up. “He’s got the whole world in His hands...”

Now, act upon it. Put the world in God’s hands. He has the ultimate plan. He has the greatest intentions for you life.

He knows. He looks out for you. He’s a leader. He’s a lover. He’s your Father. He is our Lord.

Why are you wishing for yourself when you should be praying?

“I prayed this test will go well.” “I prayed that God will lead me.” “I prayed for this opportunity.”

Change your perspective of who is in control. Give it up to God. He hears you. Talk to Him. Have a chat.

That really awesome day you just had? He wants to hear about it!

That disappointing news you received today? Talk to Him! He will give you strength to bare the pain.

So put aside wishing because that’s in your own hands.

I am not going to wish you luck, but I will pray for you.

You wish you had that? Pray, and see what God provides you. What you necessarily want isn’t always what He has in store for your journey.

You wish you were prettier? Pray and God may lead you to find your beauty.

Prayer is an everyday thing that is overlooked and not communicated about enough.

There is no weakness in prayer or asking someone to pray for you.

If you leave it up to God, anything is possible. And that anything is going to turn into your everything.

Because God never fails.

He loves endlessly.

Why would He stop now?

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
