Father, You Know Me

  Father, You know me too well, You know when I lie down You know when I arise You hem me in from afar.   You knew me in my mother’s womb Before the world was formed you knew me even then. For who am I to stand up against You? And for what purpose…

It’s My Prerogative

I remember an R&B song by Bobby Brown using this title. When I start quoting Bobby Brown the world must be upside down but Bobby really did his “thang” back in the days. Upon reviewing the song’s message it was sort of about what I am talking about here but used in a slightly different…

In Defiance of Almighty God

I started writing another book that speaks about his subject. It is called, Man Versus God. Essentially the book talks about how there appears to be a spirit of defiance in mankind that compels him to dishonor, disrespect or to just disbelieve in God.

Why should I care?

There is something about taking a stand for what you believe. It goes to the heart of who you are and what you are made of. To care about someone or something outside of your self, shows compassion, integrity, virtue, and other godly qualities that are considered to be the fruits of the Spirit. Some…

Servant of the Lord

As a fellow servant of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I often wonder how I was intended to serve the body of God. It is odd how so many people with so many differences can be grafted into one unified body so seamlessly; one body, under God, one Lord with one mission… that all…

Where are You Dear Lord

In the comfort of my dreams it is as though I can reach up and touch your face. Even though I cannot see You, I can feel your presence right next to me. Why do my mind play such tricks on me… why show me something that I cannot have? Wouldn’t I be better off…
