You said yes to God. You have given 100% to follow him. You have been at it for years. Still, things are stalling for you. You aren’t seeing any major breakthrough. No matter how much you try, how hard you pray, and the effort you put in, you don’t seem to be going anywhere. Yet, according to you, – THEY –
~those who are not as spiritual, not following God faithfully or at all~
-are prospering and going places. Why?
“Why is it 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.”
You want answers!

Bastard Son! I remember it well. That’s how my step mother called me. Bastard Son! Unworthy of anything good. Useless! Expendable. Yes, she meant it and all the other unnamed curses too. Continue reading “UN-EXPECTED BLESSINGS FROM A DYING MAN”
I confess! I am a deep thinker. Mine comes with a side effect. It’s the tendency to brutally criticize and judge myself for the minutest thing. It has been a major problem for the longest. After all, what is self reflection if the end result is a wounded hope, fear, and thoughts of shame? Continue reading “UPGRADED CONFESSIONS!”
What a small world!
I have been in Los Angeles for a year now and it has been refreshing. Often, I have been driving around with family folk, hiking across coast lines from one beach to the next, biking for hours, sightseeing, making new friends, and trying new things. Plus, I am a foodie and California offers variety. Its awesome except for traffic. My goodness…traffic! And you know what…? Continue reading “SMALL WORLD”
I love this Ostrich head. It cracks me up. I think of King Julian from the movie – Madagascar – when I see pictures like this. He would say,
Just look at it. Poor little head. Continue reading “WAR ON NEGATIVITY”
I love God. I love his Son. I just do. I love the way HE works. It borders on weird – believe me. But, one could argue that weird means special in a different way.
Sometimes, I don’t know how to tell Him how I love him and appreciate Him. I love giving compliments. I don’t know what kind of compliment to give him.
So, the best compliment I give Him at this point in my life is to say – Continue reading “DO IT AGAIN!”
Our culture today wants us to be the same. The tell is obvious. See the movies, TV shows, billboards and you’ll know. The invitation is tempting. The pull is strong. As things change you must change – they say. Lets be united – they add. Let’s all be the same – the devil behind it insist. Continue reading “I’M BLUE. I’M BLACK. I’M GOLD!”
I remember when I first came to know the Lord. For me, it was quite the experience. I had a zeal to study and to pray after that. I remember this one night. We had spent an entire night praying, singing, and just being in his presence. It was beautiful. Its normal for folks where I grew up. It was then that that still small voice whispered – Continue reading “POSITIVY SHOES”
