Walk like a man.

The last two years of my life have been nothing short of challenging and painful.   They have, however, produced some of the most valuable lessons I have learned in my thirty-five years  of walking this planet.  After re-visiting a blog I wrote called No pain, No gain, I have come to the conclusion that it is […]

Honor Runs Deep: The price of dishonor

Used with permission from Elevation Church.

Dishonor Produces Insecurity When you fail to honor people they fail to believe that you intend the best for them.

If you’ve got it…Give it!

I have been learning some valuable leadership lessons lately. Rather, unlearning self reliance and dependence on Christ the King. I was moved by Philip’s (Acts 8:26-40) uncanny passion and drive to respond to God’s call. God spoke it – Philip Did it – and God blessed it!! So many times my heart can be so […]

The fight, the promise, and the payoff

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2 This verse is power and VERY insightful. As I read this today, something jumped out at me. Why would God be […]
