Exhale

Lord, you are my everything.

When I am discouraged, I turn to you. You are so mighty. You are wise beyond measure; you alone are wisdom. Father, why should I worry or experience anxiety when I have you, when I can turn to you and you are there for me? I will adore you; I will delight in your word. Why … for you are holy. You are the great I am, and I am as you are.  At the mention of your name, Jesus, your name is power. Holy. I sing praises to the King of Kings. Continue reading →

What Happened to the Abundance?

Hello all. It is a rainy day here in Houston, Texas. Thank God for the rain. We truly need it.

I have been listening to a series from White Dove Fellowship Church in Harvey, LA, (pastor, Mike Mille (me lay)) dealing with being blessed conscious as Christians. The Bible has many, many promises for us as believers in Christ Jesus. Some say over 7,000 promises are for us in Scripture.

As I listened, and re-listened, to Mille’s sermons with titles such as “Be Blessed Conscious”, Do it Now”, “Let it Go Now” and “Significant”, I got to thinking about the abundance of life as a Christian, specifically the supernatural abundance. Christ says He came so that we might have life and have it abundantly.  Continue reading →

Hoping all is well with you and yours.

One of the few things in life I hate are daily news programs (maybe hate is too strong an emotion; maybe utter disdain is a better description). I find ‘them’ to be so negative, depressing and lacking (most of the time, anything good. Even the weather forecasters present the dreary before the beauty.  And if there is anything good, or positive, or uplifting to report such encouragement typically comes within the last few minutes of the ‘news’. Its’ presentation is almost hypnotic, especially the cable news broadcasting – so repetitive in nature, so opinionated. When did news become someone’s viewpoint?

Today, I happened tImage result for hang in thereo look at the TV screen when the news broad-caster mentioned something about someone jumping to their death from a bridge in Los Angeles, CA., and I thought WOW… How can life get so bad that you want to end it? I know life has its issues, but to end such a precious thing, something that we had nothing to do with; and I thought what was wrong, where was this person’s hope, his support; did they not feel loved? Why was this person so despairing of life? Continue reading →

The List

I heard this story the other day on some program on 105.7 KHCB (Keeping Him Close By), Christian radio. The story went like this:

A famous singer was asked to sing for this elite couple’s wedding at this grand place. She sang at the wedding and later when she and her husband stood, elegantly attired, peering into this beautifully decorated reception, the door guard asked her name. When she gave her name, the door guard indicated that she was not on the list for entry. As others stood behind, she and her husband awaiting their entry, the singer confused and embarrassed, looked to her husband and said to the door guard, “There must be some mistake, I am a guest and was invited to sing at the wedding.” The door guard, again, asked for her name, again searched the list and replied:  “I am sorry. Your name is not on the list and you are not allowed inside.” He then called someone to escort the couple to the service elevator and see them out. While on the service elevator her husband inquired, “What just happened here?” She embarrassingly replied, “I was so busy that when I received the RSVP for the reception, I did not reply. I assumed that because I was the invited singer, and a guest, I was automatically included for the reception and therefore did not need to reply.”
