What is my motive for that which I say I believe? What is my motive for following Him? What is my motive for all that I do "for Him"? Do I even know 'what I believe and why I believe it'?
The more you resist it, the harder it is.
The more you tense up,
The more difficult it is to get into the position you need to be.
The more you try to force it,
The less you are able to accomplish.
The steering jerked to the right - towards the 18-wheeler. I watched in complete silence as the car spun towards the back end of the truck. I was so sure that we were going to smash into the back of the truck. It was a literal 'Jesus take the wheel' moment.
So, how are you going to let yourself adapt? How will you allow yourself to see the good at the very center of your not so great situations? How are you going to allow yourself to heed the nudge that most often leads to inexplicable peace – though the path may be uncharted and rough?
As I went about my day and was winding down at work, I got restless with the noise of the world around me (this happens often - the world is a noisy place), and just wanted to retreat into a place where my soul could be edified with the words of Truth, with a focus... Continue Reading →
Think about this for a second... Maybe take a minute... Possibly even more than that... I have been pondering this all year. Now, we know that "Faith is the evidence of things not yet seen, and the assurance of things hoped for" (Hebrews 11:1), but what does that even mean? What does it mean to... Continue Reading →
Inspired by Aflame for God, by Smith Wigglesworth By desensitizing people to miracles, to divine manifestations, and to divine works, we as a people desire less of the works -calling them theatrics-, and focus more on the materialistic prosperity - calling them blessings- as signs of God's involvement. Nothing stops us from raising the dead... Continue Reading →
What are you afraid of? What keeps you up at night? Honestly, I have been scared. Scared, without realizing that I am afraid. Scared, with no certainty of what I am scared of. Scared, of the unknown. Scared, of what is to come. Often times, we say the right things, have the right answers, read... Continue Reading →
...Sometimes, to better understand where you are going, you need to look back on where you are coming from... Often times I forget the bondage from which I was freed. The bondage masked under pleasure. The bondage masked under 'societal norm'. The bondage masked under capitalism. The bondage masked under liberalism. The bondage which by... Continue Reading →

On the hill, on that Cross, was where my victory was taken back for me. On the hill, on that Cross, was where... Continue Reading →
The Word started it all, sustains it all, and will settle it all. The Word is the beginning, middle, and end. I was meditating on the Book of John, particularly John chapter 1. As I read this passage, taking the time to read, meditate on, and listen to each verse, I kept thinking of Genesis... Continue Reading →
How often do I let what I am doing for God take up the time that I am meant to spend with God? I woke up this morning excited to check out my site, to write, to see if there was any feedback left on the writings I had shared, to continue in this area... Continue Reading →
If I could be jealous of anything in this life, I would be jealous of those who came to God (through Christ) early. The pain, loss, misunderstandings, heartbreaks, and wasted time that I could have avoided. All the wasted efforts and trivial pursuits that could have been avoided. Oh boy. I would not be jealous...
