You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. (Genesis 50:20)

These are the words spoken by Joseph to his brothers, years after they threw him in a well and left him for dead, then decided it would be better to sell him into slavery. God took Joseph on quite a journey; from slavery to the palace to prison, and back to the palace, where he landed a position as second in command to Pharaoh and in charge of the whole land of Egypt. Certainly, Joseph’s brothers intended to harm him, but the sovereign God never wastes our time.
.Did you hear that? God never wastes our time.

It may seem like it now as you live between jobs wondering how in the world you will be able to pay the bills…

It may seem like it now as you wait for God to bring the right mate into your life…

It may seem like it now as you recover from another round of chemo…

It may seem like it now as you live in the consequences of your sin…

It may seem like it now as you do your best to get through the day with your broken heart…

It may seem like it now as you recover from the death of a dream…

It may seem like it now as your life has seemingly been placed on hold…

But…the Sovereign, Almighty, All-Powerful God never wastes our time.

So hang in there! God is using every minute (every nano-second) to mold you into the person he needs you to be for the next leg of the journey. God is at work…He loves you with an unconditional love…He has given you an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade…He has purchased you with the precious blood of his Son. He has eternity invested in you! Ask him what he wants you to learn and how he wants you to respond to today’s assignment. He is not wasting your time.

Father, for those who feel like they are stuck and their life is on hold…for those reeling from a difficult relationship or circumstance…please encourage them today with some tangible evidence that you are not wasting their time. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

My sister speaking about my niece (on the right)

We’ve made sure to instill pride in all of our nieces and nephews. It’s hard however when you have other Black kids who feel otherwise. 

Make sure you tell a Black girl and/or boy that they are beautiful today. Tell them their hair is beautiful and their skin is gorgeous. We have to rebuild the esteems of the kids in our community.

Lions Save Kidnapped Girl

if lions are coming to rescue someone, you have to know what you’re doing is wrong. you know, in that moment before you’re torn in to tiny little pieces by said lions 

You know you’re acting like a animal when an animal has to step in to help
