For as long as I can remember, I have had my life completely planned out. I knew what age I wanted to be when I got married. I even knew the ages that I wanted to be when I had my first child and my last. So just imagine the disappointment when I watched those ages come and go…and I was still single. #single #christian #christiansingles
Just as God had new names for Abraham and Sarah. He has a new name for you. The name He has given you is not tied to your past. It is tied to your future. All you have to do is receive it and walk in it. #newname #lovedbyGod #confidence #healed #healedfromthepast #secure
Many of us struggle with romantic relationships, myself included. We desire love, but we do not always properly identify what is love and what is not.

From the womb, we receive approximately 50% of our genes from each of our birth parents. So, you are roughly half your mom and half your dad. When we are born, our parents’ DNA which once resided inwardly begins to manifest outwardly in our physical appearance and characteristics.

Yup I said it. And honestly, I don’t care who made you feel otherwise. Who you are RIGHT NOW is good enough. The right person will see that. If you’re anything like me, you’ve asked yourself, “Why wasn’t I good enough?” But that’s the wrong question. Here’s the truth I’m not supposed to say aloud…#youareenough #overcomingrejection #rejection #accepted
It’s time we understand why Jesus came. Jesus has not come into your heart for what you could offer Him. He has everything. He came to spend time with you. He came to get to know you. #Jesus #relationshipwithjesus #intimacywithGod #dailydevotional
I had always heard about guarding my heart, but it was not until recently that I realized I did not know how to apply this principle to certain areas of my life. If you are anything like me, your heart allows you to easily love and welcome people with open arms not recognizing everyone is not meant to walk with you. #guardyourheart #devotional #dating #relationships
This intersection of race and faith is paramount to my existence. In the wake of the recent civil unrest, sparked by yet ANOTHER senseless murder of a black man, continued police brutality, and the wanton disregard for black life, I found it fitting that I re-examine grace.
Hope is a BIG thing. So I thought we could talk about it in a laid back way, come get ready with me! I filmed this a few weeks ago. At the time, things in the world just seemed to be so dark, but I found this scripture about hope and y'all it really changed my perspective!
I found myself running into bad apples…repeatedly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...and this is NOT a metaphor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shoot, as described above, I even bit into a bad apple. In today’s video, I want to talk to you about how all of this relates to Biblical discernment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but INWARDLY they are ferocious wolves. Matthew 7:15 NIV
Three years ago, prior to having my son, I would have answered that my dad, Pastor Otto L. Gross Sr., has impacted my “fathering” the most – at least as far as human beings go. Now, without a doubt, I know my son and daughter have impacted the way I father more than anyone else on the planet. Daddy Daycare with Otto Gross II - When Grace Called
And if I am created in the image of God, who am I to argue? Throughout all of the seasons of my life, one thing remains steadfast: even through my failures–no matter how trivial or egregious they may be–God tells me I am enough. And this is enough for me.
