I received a phone call today to pray for someone I have known for over 40 years that has begun using drugs. When I say this person has begun using drugs I mean he has begun using them ‘again’. It has been a vicious cycle of drug addiction for this brother who states he is a Christian and loves God. Some who read this will say if he is drug addict he cannot be a Christian and this post is not about whether or not he is a Christian but
I had an interesting conversation recently, it went something like this” nothing seems to bother you, you might be dying on the inside but if someone needs you, you’re there for them… most people, when something happens they have to shut down and regroup but you’re okay”. Interesting!
2007-2009 has acquainted me with pain and silent screams that I didn’t even know existed. As I continue to walk with God I continue to experience new dimensions that require new wine and for me to be a new wineskin.
It is never my
The last few days have been spent ministering and sharing with wonderful people who suffer from depression. I think “suffer from” is more appropriate than suffer with …after all, depression is not suffering when the individual yields to it, it is very happy to bring us to a point of brokenness. But I have to ask myself why so many people are going through so many cycles of depression and not experiencing the deliverance power of Jesus Christ to set the captives free. Maybe, Jesus really doesn’t set us free

I read an interesting article about a 16 year old who used a Walmart intercom system to announce and encourage all Black people to leave the store. That event within itself does not surprise me, what surprises me is that that the president of the Gloucester County chapter of the NAACP, Loretta Winters is overlooking truth.
Without a doubt this is a racially motivated comment and action, and it should come as no surprise that racism is very much alive in 2010, it has taken on a
I had an interesting conversation with one of my spiritual daughters recently; she knew the Lord was speaking to her with an idea that he wants her to carry through to completion but she was seeking an ‘anchor’. An anchor? Define anchor, what does that mean?
After much discussion I learned that this anchor is another word for assurance. It made me think, I mean really, really think. God says do something and we say give me a sign that it’s okay for me to do what you’re telling me
I was up recently at 3am counseling a brother and his wife, he’s an addict and she’s had enough! He talked and I listened. He’s been though many programs and has been an addict for many years. His life cycle has been up, down and up, down and you guessed it…up, down.
Most would look at him and dismiss him and say ” he’s never going to change and he’s never going to be anything in life.” Contrary to what people believe he’s already something in life…we just have to take
It’s been a while since I’ve written on this blog, and I do miss writing but finding the time to write is a challenge within itself. I could say that I don’t have the time but that wouldn’t be true…it’s more like I don’t make the time. After all that’s what prioritizing is…it’s making the time for things you deem important and when we don’t make the time we’re simply saying with our actions “that’s not important right now.”
I had a thought provoking conversation with a wonderful online friend that
I think death has to be one of those awkward moments where you just don’t know what to say for a lot of people. There are hundreds if not thousands of books written on the topic of how to comfort those that are mourning. I thought about that one day as I posted on Facebook and beyond that one of my sisters (I had 21 siblings total-what a blessing!) transitioned. She was a beautiful God-loving jewel. I don’t say that because she was my sister, but she truly was beautiful inside
I always feel like God is up to something! In fact I know he is, I like how he expressed it in Jeremiah 29:11 when he said:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
If you’re like me you have some ‘desires of your heart’ on the altar and are excitedly waiting for the manifestation. Speaking of manifestation, what is that? We hear people talk about it and The Word speaks of
I’m really just thinking out loud here as I reflect back to a client I had last week…a challenging client. Don’t get me wrong I loved her and our photo session went well —in the end. By “in the end” I mean after the talks and me convincing her that if she would just trust me her images would be great.
Did I mention I love photography? It’s fun and relaxing and allows the creativity the Lord placed in me to flow. But back to our regularly scheduled program—THE DIRECTOR.
