As I wrapped the final gift, I couldn't help but wonder why do we give gifts to one another when it's not our birthday? We spend so much time searching for the right gift and I dare not mention the price of some gifts. Some of us spend into debt. Thank God I am over that stage. Christ came into this world...spent time creating each of us in his imagine. We are very unique. He went to another level and showed his love for us on the cross so we might live! Priceless!! I can only imagine what Christmas would be like if gifts were giving back to Christ. What if we spent more time giving ourselves to Christ? What a wonderful world this would be!
Och!!! I was praying for answers to a situation recently and boy did I recieve the answer. During the week, I recieved bits and pieces of the answer. My thought was okay I think I see what's going on. Little did I know... I didn't know. It wasn't until 4 am in the morning when I should have been sleeping, the truth ...the full complete answer hit me in the face. I created my own problem and I was keeping myself in a box. I was my worst enemy. Sometimes it's not your associates... it's not your situation... It's simply the way you choose to handle and respond to your problem or situation.So what's the solution? Change YOU! I'm on a change my mind journey. I'm feeling good already!
No matter where you are in your journey of life...God is There! If your head is down, lift it up...God is There! There is nothing too hard for God! I'm so glad I serve a God who want give up on me. He has a unique way of opening my eyes to a new light! He has a unique way of allowing me to walk to edge of a cliff and not allow me to fall over. He pulls me back and places me in a safe place. He places me where I should be. I love him with all my heart, mind, body and soul. Hope you feel that same way too. To God be the Glory for all things!
I was asked this question and it seems to be the hardest question to answer. As I think about an answer, I have concluded that my good years out number my bad years. Now that's something to shout about. What is your reply? If you could live one year of your life over what year would it be and why?
He Fails Not... He Changes Not... Challenge Your Faith.... Lean on The Lord... The End is Better than the Beginning.. It's Over... Loss Your Faith and Get Some Faith.... The Devil Can't Stop You...You Stop Yourself... Get Ready Before it's Time to Go.... This Journey is Important!
I am indeed grateful to everyone who is listening to my music. I am also thankful for all comments. I have been trying something and I want to share with you. You know when things don't go right... we begin to have a bad day... then we begin talking to the devil. We tell him what he is not going to do. Why do we talk to the devil? Why do we entertain him? Sometimes we give the devil too much credit. Sometimes it is simply us making things bad. Sometimes, yes it is the enemy working on us because God is working on us. You know the devil is in competition with God. But.... I am practicing calling on the name of JESUS because it is written even the devil trembles at the name of JESUS. I am not talking to the devil...I'm taking it straight to JESUS. Stop talking to the devil. JESUS is listening!
The next time the devil tries to remind you of your failures, You remind him of his failures. Nathan L. Elms
GOD WILL NEVER FAIL YOU!

I was having a conversation with my son. At 20 years of age, he is still trying to decide what he wants to be when he grows up. The conversation was good until I began to flip off my tongue. My tongue began to function before my brain. He paused and allowed me to get it all off my chest. I actually didn’t allow him to finish his thoughts. I only assumed I knew where he was going in the conversation. Come to find out I was sooooooooo wrong. However, it was too late. The damage was seen on his face and I heard the hurt in his voice. The words could not be replaced. I couldn’t take the words back. I could only ask him for forgiveness and pray he would place the entire conversation into the sea of forgetfulness. Yes…. I wanted to hide under a rock. Here are a few beneficial references to the story. I am sure they will keep you from hiding under a rock. Exodus 4:10-I am slow of speech, and of slow tongue Nahum 1:3- The Lord is slow to anger James 1:19: Slow to speak, slow to wrath Allow your children to complete their thoughts Always be willing to honestly ask for forgiveness Psalms 141:3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth: keep the door of my lips
I was preparing breakfast when I thought about everything I didn’t want to eat, didn’t have to cook and so on. Out of the blue, I began to stare into my pantry. It was overflowing. My refrigerator and freezer overflowing .My closet overflowing with clothes and shoes. I looked up at a ceiling, looked down I stood on a floor, looked to my left and right there were walls. I didn’t have to sleep under the stars. These are some blessings we take for granted. God said he’ll supply our needs. He is a man that will not, cannot lie. Let’s be grateful for what we have. Our blessings are overflowing. Bless God for it all today!
