Jesus Is Always With You

God closer than the breath that we breathe — isn't that incredible?

Jesus Is Always With You

I stepped outside of my house and breathed in the fresh summer air. It smelled like flowers and bbq outside. The sky was beginning to transition from the hues of blue to oranges and pink. And as i sat on the steps in front of my house I felt the peace of Jesus cover my heart. My mind had just been wracked with anxiety over a situation that I felt like completely defined me.

Have you ever had those moments? Where you feel completely and utterly defined by a situation that has caused you to go into the deepest places of anxiety?

I knew in my heart that this situation did not define me, but I needed to be reminded by the one who created me that I was His, that I was okay, and that He simply loved me for being me.

So as I stared into the sky I took a deep breathe and focused my attention on the one who calls me by name and sees me as His beloved.

At that moment I was so sweetly reminded that even in my moments of stress Jesus comes down to my level and reminds me that I am known by Him.

He was in the breathtaking colors in the sky and the brush of wind. How God can be one place and everywhere at the same time? I couldn't answer that. But what I do know is that He is incredible in everything that He does and that because is my Father, I have access to Him at all times.

What a great truth this is to hold in our hearts.

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.
