Are you comfortable? No, not in the literal sense like kicking your feet up watching your favorite show but are you comfortable with your life? How about your job? Myself, like many people, have experienced what I call “The Twilight Zone.” Sometimes you get sucked into working and not wanting to leave a bad job but we settle which is not good. We want to be happy in what we are doing, but we have fear of change, because we just get so use to things and just continue to go with it. We need ...

Be in love, but don't get lost in love! I'm writing to express an important aspect about being in love as a couple dating or in marriage. Love is a many-splendid thing that began with the creation of the universe and the world we've come to know. Love is the most fundamental thing we possess and can share with that one special person in our life. Paul writes in Ephesians 5:25, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” Having said that, it's v...

Ask yourself, "Why is he Black?" If you ask an African American child what color his or her skin is, he or she will tell you brown. If you ask a Caucasian child what color my skin is, he or she will tell you brown. If you ask a Hispanic, Asian, Indian, or Arabian child what color my skin is he or she will tell you in their native language that my skin is brown.  Do you agree with general consensus that "white" signifies goodness and purity, and that is one of the reasons why a bride wears...

We are living in a time where there is so much going on in the world. We constantly hear of wars and rumors of wars. We are bombarded with heart-wrenching news on the daily, if not by the hour. This as you know is no exaggeration. I sit from time to time and think how I would be affected by this life if I did not have God on my side. If you haven't figured it out by now, I believe in the True and Living God and I endeavor to share his love with all that I can. I am at a point where I find that...

It seems like every way I turn someone is coming out with awesome news. All I could think in my mind the other night was, it’s happening. I have finally crossed over the threshold where I’m watching everyone else receive theirs. Theirs represents those blessings and gifts that I would one day like to have in my own life. I mean there have been engagement announcements, pregnancy announcements, you name it. I was almost to the point of tears in frustration the other night where I paused and remem...

My name is Melvin Riley, and I am the founder and CEO of CardiacGlue. Here is why I created CardiacGlue. I believe that love, life, and heartbreak are three things that we all have in common. Everyone experiences heartbreak in some way or another, and most people just need a place to express their thoughts. That is why I created CardiacGlue. People are venting on other social media platforms, killing other people, and committing suicide for many reasons and one being that they do not have a pla...

From the time God gave me this vision, I have been plotting and planning to get the people I care about to work with me. Here are the problems with that: I am learning that I should not move unless I hear it from God. God is working all around us and through us to accomplish His will. My intent was to get the people who are good at what they do, so they help in the areas I am lacking. That makes sense right? Well, God wants us to come to Him, and for us to run everything by Him so that we may r...

It was a difficult decision to make: open CardiacGlue to the public, or wait until it was perfect? Of course we want CardiacGlue to be perfect. We want CardiacGlue to be the perfect place for people to come and express themselves. We want people to know that CardiacGlue is the perfect place to share their thoughts, and the perfect place for people to come to ask for help. But it will never be perfect. We realized that CardiacGlue will never be perfect because there is always more work to be d...

Every heartbreak seems to be a reminder of what I've always felt: my own father didn't want me, so why would any other man? That's a love I've always yearned for....but never truly received....and doubt I ever will. He'll come around and things will be good...but he won't stay. Especially if something else more appealing to him in some way walks by, no matter how great I am....he won't stay. They never do. #heartbreak
