They quite simply are – HUMBLE! Continue reading “THE FUNNY THING ABOUT HUMBLE BEGINNINGS”

WHY DO “THEY” PROSPER & I DON’T, EVEN THOUGH I SAID YES TO GOD? – PART 2

In this post, I wish to share the next set of responses to Kenny’s questions.  If you haven’t read Part 1 of this post, I encourage you to do so to get the full story. Simply click here. In brief, I was responding to a bunch of questions a young, passionate, and enthusiastic Christian man posed during a difficult time of his life. Kenny asked,

Why is that I am following God and doing everything right but I am not prospering? Instead, it seems those who aren’t following God are prospering. How come these problems never end? I am tired man. Why do things just seem hard even after I have given God a hundred percent? How come it seems like things are working for other people and seems to come easy to others while for me its a fight…? Its not fair…! This faith thing must be a lie.

Part 1 focused on person and his connections. This post will be centered on the theme of blessing. It is a real treat because I personally enjoy the answers here. Don’t forget to comment with your thoughts. It puts a smile on my face to read from you.

In the beginning, it was foolishness…

But first, I need to tell you something. I don’t know what you believe or if you will believe me. I don’t know what your thoughts, training, doctrine, or belief is. I don’t know what you will think. Nevertheless, what I am about to share is a true story. Keep an open mind. Continue reading “HOW MY TUITION GOT PAID”

STORY OF THE WALKING MAN

It was too late. I had blundered terribly. A mistake that left me feeling regret and remorse. By now, the the voice of accusation had evidence against me. Every minute I was reminded of my shortcomings. Someone so precious to me.

How could I let my fears and anxiety get the better of me? How could I take such a great risk because of fears? Who was I and what kind of man had I become? Was I the same person and would I ever be perceived as the man I was before?

As I looked down at myself in shame, wondering what they future would be for me, two voices began a conversation in my head. One of those voices was mine. I listened to the other tell me a story and it is this story I summarize below Continue reading “STORY OF THE WALKING MAN”
