Hindsight: Coming Soon

pic via  @loladeclet As I am growing older, I am learning that the “good” things that I desire aren’t always from God, and the things that are from God, don’t always make me feel good. And once upon a time it was a harsh lesson to learn, coming to the realization that just because I thought a particular job, position,…

Dear Friend

One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother | Proverbs 18:24|  For years, I’ve sought to bury the memory of you.    I had a conversation about you years ago, to which I swore I would not help you in the way that I was being asked to. Not because I hated…

Go Back: an excerpt from Hindsight

This is a short excerpt from my upcoming book: Hindsight   Go Back   “ This place that you love and envision yourself in; that leaves your heart glowing with all kinds of possibilities; that offers the potential of a life that you can’t even put into words, yes, this place, this thing, it’s not for you .” (excerpt f…

Remember

There is nothing that is impossible with God but you have to try. You have to want it. You have to be willing. You have to be willing to remove the limits on your mind and do it His way, at His pace and direction. You have to be willing to trust Him.  He is the God of all creation. All things are subject to Him.  Th…

Coming Soon

There’s a book that I was supposed to have written years ago. In fact I began writing it in 2019 faithfully. But I couldn’t finish it.   So I asked God to help me write something. And it’s a request that I’d made many times, but this time was different because something within me told that this time it’s urgent. I…

Speak Life

Death and life are in the power of the tongue. That means we can kill a thing before it is born. We can kill a blessing before it can start growing roots. A seed can be placed in the soil, but what we use to water it will determine whether it breakthrough the soil, or it dies in it. Discipline yourself to not speak …

With Your Heart

“ Do not be afraid,” Samuel replied. “You have done all this evil; yet do not turn away from the Lord [do not stop following Him], but serve the Lord with all your heart ." [ 1Samuel 12:20 ]   I marvel at this love that God has for us. The mercy He shows his children, even in our wanton disobedience. That, when w…

By Faith

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer. |Romans 12:!2| *** ** * Why was I discouraged? Because God showed me He was pushing me all the way back and I felt stuck and abandoned. Because I looked at where I wanted to be and where I was and I felt defeated and unable to see the seed that had been…
