What is the secret to being thankful and content in whatever relationship status we are in? It is choosing to “Think Eternity and Not Temporary.” What do I mean by this? I mean choosing to have the proper spiritual perspective about this life. As a Christian, correct perspective is essential to continuance and perseverance through […]
I want to list 3 things that I believe as a Christian is important to remember when we look at politics in this country. 1. This world is not our home. “For this world is not our permanent home: We are looking forward to a home yet to come.”-Hebrews 13:14 The moment we obeyed the […]
If we take a moment to look around the world in front of us, it’s not hard to see that our world is in a constant state of utter chaos and unrest. It can be overwhelming seeing the pandemonium that this virus has caused. It’s also burdening to see the depravity, wickedness, evilness, and straight […]
I remember this exact photo. My emotions are almost palpable as a stare at this photo again. The immense grief that was within me as I stood on these steps could not be put into words. The deep historical and far existing pain for my ancestors flowed through every vein of my body. Immense anger, confusion, despair, and anguish plagued my heart this day. I didn’t crack one smile, I couldn’t. When I witnessed the murder of George Floyd, I remember feeling just like I felt when I first stepped foot on the grounds of Cape Coast Castle. I was ANGRY, confused, and numbed by such a sinful act. I was so angry I couldn’t speak. There were no audible words that could possibly articulate what I felt in the moment. But in the midst of my anger I was met with God’s truth and His love. His truth broke through my heart, like the sunrise bursting through the seams of a new day. Then my tears broke through my eyes and ran down my cheeks like waterfalls. The truth was this…”I am allowed to be angry..BUT..”
It is our duty as Christians to boldly and relentlessly proclaim the truth of the Gospel and align our lives with the Gospel. In the book of Galatians, the apostle Paul lovingly rebuked Peter and others for their racism and prejudice. Their behavior and hearts were “not acting in line with the truth of the […]
How should a Christian respond to this Coronavirus? The answer…. “IN FAITH.” So many people in this world are chasing after things that only God can truly supply. Money cannot save us; the crashing stock market is proof of that. Our jobs do not give us guaranteed security, the millions of unemployed are proof of […]
If there is someone who knew what it meant to maximize his life and maximize his single years, it was our bro Joe! Every time I read the account of his life in the book of Genesis Ch 37-50; I am left in awe. Joseph was the REAL DEAL in every way! He wasn’t perfect, […]
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill can’t be hidden. People do not light a lamp and put it under a bowl, instead they put it on its stand. Then it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine in front of others. […]
Sometimes the depth of our dysfunction and sin can be so great that when healthy/godly relationships or healthy/godly patterns try to enter our lives, we push them away. When we become so comfortable in dysfunction and sin, being ‘healthy” and “whole” becomes very uncomfortable and foreign to us. But who ever said the road to healing, the road to wholeness, the road to healthy, and the road to holiness would be easy? What if the discomfort we are avoiding can be the very path to our redemptive healing?
Have you looked into the mirror today? I’m not talking about just any ol’ mirror. I’m referring to the “true mirror.” Apart of growing in this life, is first having the ability, and the humble honesty to truly see ourselves..”the good, the bad, and the ugly.” In this blog, I discuss how we can truly see ourselves if we take the necessary time to look into the “true mirror” of life. Be encouraged!
