GOD’S PROMISES: Your Healing

Many may wonder if God is truly with them in all things. Specifically, where is God when a loved one becomes sick, is attacked with a disease or where is He when bad things happen to innocent people?

A Motion Pictured Vision

In the first visual picture frame, she stood looking helplessly at herself in the bureau mirror. White powered, caked on makeup masked her face. The lip stick she wore was a bright, ruby red. Large, dark black curls rest on her shoulders. Fleetingly in another visual frame, her facial hue appeared extremely pale as if […]

The Voice of Love, Life

The activities of the day had shutdown. And the hour for my devotions was at hand. The evening was quiet for the exception of the low playing sounds of “Music Choice.” It’s a station that plays the essence of instrumental jazz. In my mind, I enjoy hearing that type of music because it tells stories […]

Encouraging Myself!

Within the past two weeks, I received, on top of the !!! news indicated in my last blog, “Be Not Dismay, But You Better Take Heed,” another doctor’s report that wasn’t too favorable. This time ’round, I was experiencing shortness of breath, especially when climbing the stairs. It would take about 3 to 5 minutes […]

Be Not Dismay, But You Better Take Heed!

Throughout the years, off and on my back, from the shoulders to the hips, has given me problems. For example, I couldn’t stand for extremely long hours because if I did, that region would ache. As a result, I was careful not to select particular job positions, for instance a mail carrier or waitress. And […]

An Abundance Cometh

The fierce clacking rain Lofty flakes of obscuring snow A strong wintry mixture Oft whistling sounds herald The hand of God delivering the winds Dampness, dismal, and chillsome cold in the picture Pitching pennies in wishing wells Anticipating warmer weather Spring’s tiptoeing on the horizon, much richer The rain and snow come down from the heavens […]

A slight voice signaled, “y’all come look,” and a sight we did see cloaked not in a nook, but standing at the entrance of the bedroom door in GrandMa Ma’s Boots She’s two years old, boots up to her thighs can’t take a step, just swaying from side to side as if a breeze was ’round her Gently […]

A Father and Daughter’s Relationship: Daddy’s Letter in Heaven – Part Two

I was either going to be obedient and submit to the will of the Lord of my life—Jesus, or my will, ruling it myself: sacrificing the joy and wholeness of my being.  I needed my relationship with my daddy, this was healthy.  And had not our years of estrangement been resolved, the attitude of resentment, uncertainties, […]

A Father and Daughter’s Relationship: Daddy’s Letter in Heaven – Part One

Note: This letter to my dad was written almost two years ago. It was a timely psychology course assignment, but one that would seal my declaration for years of freedom from emotional and mental bitterness.  The topic and research were my choice.  Post this assignment, my memories of my dad are currently healthy and good ones. Therefore, I would like […]

Part Three: A Story Describing Her “Soul Ties”

Over and over again God met with her. One day while sitting in church, she listened intently to the 9:30 a.m. sermon.  It was as if that sermonic message had become metaphorically a pair of loving arms.  The words her pastor spoke embraced her heart. Becoming a member of a church community was the best […]

Part Two: A Story Describing Her “Soul Ties”

Many years had passed and she still felt guilty for the choices she had made. In many ways, the soul ties became painfully intense. Strongholds of guilt had randomly pop into the portals of her sanity, magnifying every bit of disgrace. In the end however, the negative feelings were redirected. Her faith would bring about […]

Part One: A Story Describing Her “Soul Ties”

They were students attending the same school.  It was their last year of high school and Summer was approaching.  Early on she received salvation, a new way of life by accepting Jesus, the Christ as her Saviour.  But the G-d she served was not yet her Lord. The young man involved wasn’t saved.  Perhaps, he was too busy being flirtatious with other females.  […]
