Need a Break?

Can I ask, have you been resting with the Lord? In my time of prayer, the Lord reminded me, as I learned last week, that He is the Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2:28) and that He has gifted us with times and seasons of rest. It all dawned on me this morning when IContinue reading “Need a Break?”

Becoming

I cannot believe this is happening! I remember the night before anything big was to happen, I would be so incredibly nervous. But now look at me; I’m calm, and relaxed, totally copasetic. I know I’m called to speak. Besides the fact that this has been confirmed through people; I know this because it’s likeContinue reading “Becoming”

Fear

COVID-19 has me in my bible like it’s nobody’s business! I’ve always wished for more time but could never find it. Either I was caught up with work, family, or other obligations that I could never do what I actually wanted to do.

Lessons from the Pulpit: Plug into the Power Source

I once heard a man say, “If Jesus was to visit some of our churches today, we’d have to give Him a complete orientation. We’d have to explain to Him what an usher is, why we have a board of directors, and help Him become a bit more acquainted with our Sunday morning program; ourContinue reading “Lessons from the Pulpit: Plug into the Power Source”

The Messed Up ‘Cookie-Cutter’ Life

Never in a million years did I think I’d be the one. I never thought I’d fit into the role of a minister. Maybe someone else, maybe someone more qualified, but certainly not me!’ Those were my initial sentiments when I was called into the eldership role at my local church. As feelings of ‘notContinue reading “The Messed Up ‘Cookie-Cutter’ Life”
