Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6 Are you walking by faith or by fear? Do you live a life of great anticipation or great anxiety? Do your actions compliment your words? Do you […]

“You are who you are through this gift and call of Jesus Christ!” Romans 1:6 Within the world, when men and women say they have been “called”, more than likely they mean they have been called to military service.  Identified by their uniforms, they are viewed as special.  Those who answer the call to serve […]

UNCF’s motto is, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”. I truly believe, your mind is a very powerful tool and if not used correctly, a mind can get you into trouble. What do I mean by this? Well, the word says, “as a man thinketh, so is he”. Our thoughts are where our […]

“And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you…” Mark 11:25 AMP Being able to forgive is not an easy thing to do. I believe God intentionally programmed it […]

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.

Or even worse, your reality is the extreme opposite […]

I found myself singing an old gospel song while I was mediating on my morning devotional that focused on suffering. “If I hold my peace, let the Lord fight my battle. I know that the victory shall be mine. Victory shall be mine.” Holding my peace causes suffering. This suffering is in experiencing or feeling […]

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32 Being able to forgive is not an easy thing to do.

Folks use to joke me for the amount of time I use to spend at church in Baltimore and it is looking like that is slowly happening now that I am here in Charlotte and actively involved. I enjoy the time spent around like-minded folks and just feel good doing things for God and not […]

Why is it so easy for us to believe that a friend will do what they promised. Or, that our boss will give us the raise they announced during our annual review. Or, our child when they say that they will not break curfew. Or, our spouse when they say their vows to us on […]

National Commentator, Author, TV/Radio Host Tavis Smiley says, “You can’t lead the people, if you can’t first serve the people. And, you can’t serve the people, if you don’t first love the people.” I want to add, you can’t love the people if you don’t first love yourself. You can’t give love to another person […]
