From My Heart To Yours

When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything about the rule of the law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.
                                   Pope John Paul II

My nephew was violently gunned down back in September after arriving home from work by someone who had forsaken his freedom by not knowing his purpose in life.

QUOTE FOR TODAY

Do not wait; the time will never be "just right." Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.

QUOTE FOR TODAY

One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.

                                                     Abraham Maslow

DON'T LOOK BACK; YOU'RE NOT GOING THAT WAY! 
KEEP MOVING FORWARD! YOU GOT THIS!!

"Watch Your Mouth"

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
                                                         Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)

I was having a conversation with a young lady who was talking about her desire to get off work at her scheduled time instead of 15 to 20 minutes later when someone finally comes to relieve her of her duties.

The Goodness Of The Lord

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
                                                            Psalm 23:6

Back in early 2017, I developed a cough. In the beginning, I thought I was getting a cold. Because I am not one who likes to take medicine, my first choice of remedy was to start taking Vitamin C.

Rise Up

Let you speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
                                                                Colossians 4:6 (KJV)

I received a text message of a screen shot from someone close to me. The screen shot was of comments being made about an incident that involved the person recently.

Confession Of A God-Player

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.
                                                   Psalm 127:1 (NIV)

My definition of a God-Player:
A God-Player is one who has put themselves in the role of God; they have made themselves the author and finisher of their life; one who has put his/her ideas, philosophies, opinions, etc.

The Day God Broke My Heart

Though he slay me, yet will I trust him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
                                                             Job 13:15

Five months ago, I received a call at 2:20 in the morning that left my world as I knew it, shattered. It was a phone call from my sister telling me that my 28 yr old nephew (her son) was gone.

"Never Land"

And the manna ceased on the morning after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

It is so easy for us to become so comfortable with the familiar that we miss opportunities to receive blessings that we have prayed for, because going after them means we have to leave our comfort zone. But in order to have the promises of God, we must leave the familiar (embrace being uncomfortable), trusting and believing that God will do just what He said.
