NO SHAME – Part 1

Hello family.

How are you all doing? Sorry for the long absence. So, I was at a conference for a couple of days and went hiking deep in the mountains. I had no service and no way of sharing the adventure with you. But, I am back.

My adventure was Spirit filled, Spirit led, power packed, and full of miracles, divine connections…just to name a few. I learned a lot from friends and speakers. I had a wonderful time with our helper and friend – the Holy Spirit. So, I just want to share a few things with you to get you going. More is on its way.

So, here it goes – Continue reading “NO SHAME – Part 1”

THE EXPONENTIAL REALITY OF MARRIAGE

No!

I’m not married. I’m just excited about it. I never used to be. Marriage used to terrify me. I grew up in a matrix of a home. I love my folks. But, I must confess that my family had quite the baggage. Ok, my side of the family. That contributed to the doubts and fear I had about marriage.

But, as one of my favorite bloggers would say,

We are all recovering from something – BBB

So, what can I possibly share about marriage that could get you thinking, preparing, and as excited as I am, you wonder. Let me share some observations. Continue reading “THE EXPONENTIAL REALITY OF MARRIAGE”

THE FUNNY THING ABOUT HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

I was embarrassed to share the featured picture for this post with you. It felt awkward.

I mean, what is a man in a suit doing carrying around and riding “half” a bicycle?

But, that’s the thing about humble beginnings-

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.

FYI – Kenny’s response is at the end! Continue reading “WHY DO “THEY” PROSPER & I DON’T, EVEN THOUGH I SAID YES TO GOD? – PART 2″

WHY DO “THEY” PROSPER & I DON’T, EVEN THOUGH I SAID YES TO GOD? – PART 1

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!

Welcome to the club. You are not alone. Continue reading “WHY DO “THEY” PROSPER & I DON’T, EVEN THOUGH I SAID YES TO GOD? – PART 1″

UN-EXPECTED BLESSINGS FROM A DYING MAN

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”

SMALL WORLD

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”
