Don’t Miss Out

Mark 6:47 The most significant part of today’s scripture that stuck out for me was (vs 52) “for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves. Their hearts were too hard to take it in.” Are we like the disciples were at that time? Do we miss the miracles and blessings […]

Endures Through Every Circumstance

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 As I was officiating a wedding this past weekend, the couple wanted me to quote today’s scripture, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; probably one of the most recited verses repeated at wedding ceremonies. Though I have read and repeated this verse many times, the last line stuck out to me more prominently than ever. […]

Cry Out

Psalm 34:6 Tonight, I am so tired and weary, feeling helpless and afraid of the coming days/ weeks. Who do I call out to? who do I run to? Where do I find my rest? I head to my comforting, safe and dark room, thinking I can’t feel hurt there but I do. My world […]


Psalm 27:14 Patience is not one of my virtues. I have been known to anxiously watch and sometimes interrupt my microwave just to see if the food is done yet. I cannot judge anyone on being impatient. Unfortunately, the season in my life I am going through right now calls for much waiting, being very […]

Give Praise

“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again — my Savior and my God!” (Psalm 42:11) The psalmist is basically asking why am I being so silly getting discouraged and sad, really? What is the point when I have this huge […]

Keep Us Away

Romans 16:17,18 “I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.  For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive […]

Special Family

Mark 3:31-35 Coming from a very dysfunctional family with a drunk abusive father made knowing what a family is difficult to comprehend and understand. However, after years of fellow-shipping and being mentored by Christian brothers and sisters in Christ, a view of true family came full circle. Jesus tells His disciples in Mark 3:31-35, “Then […]

Shine Through Darkness

James 1:19, Proverbs 18:13; 19:11 In today’s scripture, we are reminded that as Christians we are called to be a patient and forgiving people. While many in the world today are quick to anger and post their thoughts on social media or start riots, we must be quick to understand, to forgive and to be […]

Not Easy

Ephesians 4:22-24 Many times when God isn’t changing your circumstances, it’s because He is mostly concerned with changing you  from within. Many times we look at our outward circumstances and not what is going on within us. We are concerned about losing a job, not making enough money, not getting this and that in which […]
