23rd February

February 14, 1998 was a day that changed my life and propelled me into a deeper walk with God. At the age of six years old, my younger brother was diagnosed with leukemia. On that day I learned the power of intercessory prayer. When crises seep in, we abandon our earthly way of thinking and cling to God with complete hope that He will make a way in our situation. After multiple rounds of chemotherapy within a span of three long years, Almighty God healed my brother.

February 14th has always been a reminder to me that the Lord is our healer. Around America, this day is considered a day of love. The stores are filled with candy and gifts packaged in colorful paper ready to be given to loved ones, but this year, South Florida endured a … Read More »



Where Love Begins

14th February

“Valentine’s Day,” “Single’s Awareness Day,” “Flowers, Candy and Gifts Day”—however you celebrate or label it, there is one thing for certain: you cannot run away from February the fourteenth.

Every year, it comes around like clockwork. To some, it is anticipated with excitement but to others, it comes begrudgingly.

Love

11th February

It is a topic that has inspired some of the most majestic paintings, motivated the most breathtaking pieces of literature, and moved many a composer to create ballads which could bring tears to your eyes. It persuades human beings to go above and beyond what they would have thought they were capable of. And it is spelled with only four letters: l-o-v-e. It is a beautiful thing really, yet often really misunderstood.

Our view of love as a society is quite funny. We blame and credit love for so many decisions—both good and bad. It makes you wonder how something so wonderful and powerfully positive could cause so much confusion and heartbreak. To be loved is one of the most amazing feelings in the world, but to have your love betrayed is one of the most devastating. How could love be … Read More »



Signed, Sealed, and Delivered

10th February

Many of us have grown up feeling our value is measured in the flutters we feel from words of affirmation on paper hearts, gathered up in red roses, or melting away in empty boxes of chocolate. But the love on parade during Valentine’s Day should be based on so much more than momentary, flashy displays of affection.
