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 –

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”
Process is important to God. It should be important to you too. Continue reading “MORE ON HAVING A PERSONAL PROCESS”
Self-actualization is the point at which a person becomes all that they are capable of and do all that they are capable of. People at this stage can see only possibilities even in the midst of impossibilities. Why is that? Continue reading “THE QUEST FOR AUTHENTICITY”
You have heard it said that, “Life is not about the destination but its about the journey.” Well, I disagree. Okay maybe – slightly.
The most valuable lesson I have learned in my travels and adventures is this:

Your dreams, visions, and destiny go only as far as your love for the people it is meant to serve.
