The Struggle is Real… So is the Solution!

IMG_7035

Here lately I have seen the phrase “the struggle is real” a lot on social media and the truth is, struggles are real! Everyone struggles with different things in their lives. People will go through difficult times due to their circumstances in life. Sometimes, our struggles overwhelm us and we lose hope. When there is no hope, people become desperate or they just want to give up on hope and life. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. There is hope! I know the struggle is realbut Read More…

A Father’s Day Lesson: Love

Fathers-Day-Destop-Wallpaper

I have read enough men’s ministry books and been to several men’s retreats to know one thing: men have a hard time showing and expressing love. Not only have I read about this issue from books and heard it from men’s conference speakers, I have had men sit in my office and tell me the same thing. They have sat across from me and told me how they have trouble telling and showing those who are the closest to them that they love them. I guess it’s a man thing. Countless men have this issue. I have often questioned why? Read More…

And the Two Became One…

Last week I had the great honor of performing the wedding of my good friend from high school; Olga and her fiance, Willie. When she asked me if I would perform the ceremony I began asking her all kinds of questions. I wanted to know what she wanted in her wedding ceremony.

“Take this mug for a ride…Boom! Burn! Bip! Yeah! Pow! Hey, ha ha. Down with the dc Talk…” used to bump from the JBL Powerbass 10” subs located in the trunk of my 1989 Chevy Cavalier. Boy, back in the da’ day it was fly to be bumpin’ the bass, and no, I don’t mean those pesky black things flying in the air. The year was 1994 and it was a time of low-riders and big speakers and lots of bass. It was also the year I became a believer in Christ and I was trying to change some of the things in my life. One of those things was my choice of music. I listen to all kinds of music. I like classic/hard rock, country, rap and hip hop. It was then that I started listening to different genres of Christian music. One of the groups I was introduced to was DC Talk, you know Toby Mac’s old band. Back then, DC Talk was more hip hop/rap than anything else and one of my favorite songs was “Luv is a Verb”. Great song, but the problem was, I had no real idea what that song was even about and how it applied to my life back in the day.
Now, almost 21 years later, Read More…

The Father’s Love

Sometimes it is hard for me to really understand how much God really loves me. However, as have I looked back on my life, I have seen the many times that my heavenly Father has shown me His love. Earlier, I was reminded of one of those wonderful times. He showed me His loves through the love I have for my daughter, Caitlyn. This story happened in July of 2010. Read More…

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship.” Psalms 19:1 (NLT)

“Seek My face, and you will find fulfillment of your deepest longing. My world is filled with beautiful things; the are meant to be pointers to Me, reminders of My abiding Presence. The earth still declares My Glory to those who have eyes that see and ears that hear.” Sarah Young ~ “Jesus Calling”
