Thank you for accepting me into your homes, offices or wherever this blog is viewed with all of my imperfections, my weaknesses and I believe my strengths. It has been an incredible journey thus far. For those who have sown into my life seeds of love, faith, hope, joy, peace, and kind words of encouragement through your comments/feedback - thank you!

Empowerment Moments Year 2012 Review - From Tragedy To Triumph

Hurricane Sandy pic
Over the past months of this year, there was hardly a moment that we were not greeted with some form of tragic news - whether by television, radio, newspaper, internet, you name it. While many of those stories though tragic, have touched our hearts with grief and sadness, there were those miraculous and heartwarming moments, that have propelled/pioneered change and have even caused many to take another look at the way we conduct ourselves and business in our daily lives. For the mention in this column today I am certain that our hearts will once again be blessed.

Never Despise A Small Beginning In Life
This one speaks to this Blog. Scripture teaches this very basic yet profound principle that we are never to despise our small humble beginning. No doubt, it can be rough at the start but if we remain faithful even through life's challenging and difficult times, we will one day emerge from the 'rubble' onto a journey of faith and true happiness. From a place of rock bottom (adversity, trials, persecution and rejection) when I began my Blog, I've learned that true happiness is never determined by the circumstances that we face each day, but true happiness comes from God, from having a desire for Him and His word, and doing what He requires us to do (pursuing our calling). Blogging while it brings happiness to my life, it allows me the opportunity to share messages of hope and the good news of the gospel with so many into over 50 countries/nations around the world. "True Happiness" posted January 10th 2012

May The Joy Of Christmas Fill Your Heart And Lives

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.....Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." ~ (Matthew 1: 21, 21)

May the joy of Christmas fill your heart and lives. May the peace that the birth of Jesus brings overshadow you and fill your hearts and homes. While we celebrate with family and friends - the Christmas Tree, gifts, food, fun, laughter, let us not forget the real reason and the meaning of Christmas Day.

The birth of Christ over 2000 years ago heralded a new era. A time of peace, hope and God's promise/s to us as humanity. It was and still is a remarkable evidence of God's love and care for us. It is God's best gift to us. It is as the scripture says, JESUS, Emmanuel - God with us.

Your Forces And How To Use Them by Christian D. Larson - Guest Article

"Promise yourself

To be so strong that nothing 
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet. 

To make all your friends feel 
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

He Restoreth All Things

"Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free Spirit." ~ Psalm 51:12 "He restoreth my soul..." Psalm 23:3 In a fractured world, filled with brokenness - broken dreams, broken systems, broken relationships, just to mention a few; restoration is a much needed experience. Sadly, many places once considered peaceful and much sought after as iconic and great travel destinations, are now witnessing at an unprecedented rate strife, wars and confusion in their land.

We take a telescopic view into the Middle East where talks of peace are never ending but for the most part is, seemingly, falling on deaf ears. Every day we witness bible prophecy being fulfilled where nations continue to rise up against nations and, in the midst of an ongoing civil war, the looming threat of chemical weapons sits as a 'black hawk' waiting the day when its' evil master gives it its signal for execution of diabolical duties.

"Purpose" by Yolanda Banks

This was certainly not my topic for today and what I'm about to post, the person behind it has no earthly idea that I am about to do it. But I must follow the leading of God's Spirit and His voice within me to feature this brief but to the point article called "Purpose" by Yolanda Banks of The Guardian Angel Who Had A Loud Voice Blog. It is short but beautifully written and so relevant to what is happening today. It reads as follows:

Prayer For The Families Of Newtown Connecticut

Dear God, words cannot begin to express the grief, the sadness and the lost that is felt by so many families across the nation and the global stratosphere who are left in shock and are mourning the lost of their loved ones who were violently killed yesterday at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown Connecticut. We ask, why? but only you have the answers. Hearts feel the magnitude of the pain as each one bleed internally by that senseless tragedy and cowardly act of evil that was visited upon the nation. Lord please extend your blanket of mercy and compassion upon each one. Give them strength and courage to embrace life as something beautiful that you have given to each one of us and free them to go forth and not be in fear.

Word Of Inspiration - You Have The Power

"Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." ~ Matthew 18:18 This is one of two verses that falls directly under God's law as "The law of prohibiting and permitting." Within the context, the word [whatsoever] means all things that you take under your possession, be it good or evil. The word itself has a doubled-edged sword reverse effect! It means that once you begin to exercise your authority under this law, you speaking to whatever it is and giving it the command to cease to exist in the earth, in your life or in your situation, heaven has already endorsed it and that you being created in the image and likeness of God is speaking in the earth what was already the mind of God.

Thought For Today - Builders Of Your Own Character

"....we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience: And patience experience: and experience hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because of the love of God shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost." - Romans 5:3-5

"We are builders of our own character. We have different positions, spheres, capacities, privileges, different work to do in the world, different temporal fabrics to raise; but we are all alike in this - all are architects of fate." ~ John Fothergill Waterhouse Ware

Have a blessed day everyone! 

Just Laugh For The Joy Of It

"For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven...A time to cry and a time to LAUGH. A time to grieve and a time to dance." Ecclesiastes 3: 1,4 (NLT) There was a time in my life that some very simple challenges in life that came my way would cause me to freak out. I was so serious and you guessed right, I took everything very serious. I just did not know what it meant to be funny - to have joy and laughter in my life. To a large extent, the environment in which I grew up in shaped my behavior. Then experiences with some bad relationships compounded the matter and that caused me to often beat up on myself.

Prior to me accepting Christ as my Lord and Savior up to the time of my deliverance, anxiety and fear were my companions. Without Christ in my life, I was really in darkness and so I thought they were my friends. Everywhere I went, they were there, until that is, the light of Jesus penetrated my spirit and awakened my soul with joy and laughter and for me to come out from among that darkness.

Trust Him Even When You Can't Trace Him

"The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all." ~ (Psalm 34: 18-19) Recently I have been getting these nudges that would cause me to push aside regular articles and post a prayer instead. I do not want to make light of it or ignore my deep intuition because I understand the way that God works, there is no distance in prayer. God knows us more than we know ourselves. He understands our thoughts from afar off. He knows when there is difficulty in our lives even when we choose to keep it to ourselves instead of sharing it with others. 

Many times we become saddened by situations, we cry and we water our bed with tears. God sees and He understands. And while I may not be the one that is hurting today, I know there is someone out there who is. So in obedience, here is my prayer:

What's Ahead Of You Is Better Than What's Been

In spite of what forecasters say, I am optimistic about the future of what lies ahead. Deep within me is that strong conviction of great expectation. I am anticipating the best of what God has - it is about to come. Regardless of all that may have transpired over the past year/s: high and lows; good times and bad times; laughter or tears; success or failure; mountain top or valley experiences; sunshine or rain. So where does this deep conviction come from, you might ask? Well in case that was a questionable thought of yours, it would be most beneficial to all of us if I shared it with you.
