The Unappreciated

The Unappreciated

There comes a time in everyone’s life where all their efforts seem to be failing… There comes a time when nothing seems to work out despite our valiant efforts… There comes a time when disaster strikes those closest to us that do well, while the wicked live on and prosper… There comes a time when leaders will abuse their authority, slander & lie, promote mediocrity, and allow certain individuals who “fall in line” to break the rules while they discipline […]

The Forgotten Ones

The Forgotten Ones

It is a commonly known fact that those that care for others the most often receive the least care or concern in return…   It is commonly known that those who give the most of themselves, who bear their souls, and lift up others in prayer often suffer in silence with their own struggles of sin and pain…   To those who call out from the depths of despair… When you have walked through the darkness of your circumstance… Take […]

In One Moment

In One Moment

Many of us complain through our joys rather than celebrate them… We fail to realize that our lives are but mere moments… And it’s up to us to either live with remorse or cherish them… In one moment, we stand before God at an altar… In one moment, we cannot believe that our marriage has faltered… In one moment, we hold a precious new born child… In one moment, we are signing papers over differences that can’t be reconciled… In […]

This is My Fire House

This is My Fire House

Welcome to my fire house, it is like no other…   Here we answer the call of the needy, the hurting, and bring calm to the chaos…   This is my fire house, a place of provision, security, and accountability all in one…   Here we eat together, pray together, play together, and share our burdens…   This is my fire house, it is like no other for only here can we be real with one another…   Here we […]

The Ultimate Rejection

The Ultimate Rejection

In our lives, as we strive to make a difference we often come to a very dangerous crossroads.  We work, sacrifice, and pour our passionate efforts into the development and improvement of our world. We give of ourselves in ways we never thought possible not even realizing how much of ourselves we have given away in the process. And then it happens… All of our work, all of our efforts, and all that we have developed is suddenly taken from […]

When Our World Falls Apart…

When Our World Falls Apart…

Is life tearing your world apart? In the middle of our broken moments…. When we are at our lowest… Remember the power of a kind word spoken… Think of those who are also at the end of their rope… When life attacks and we feel that we are spent… What if we spoke words of peace and encouragement? By choosing love instead of anger… We are rescuing others from danger… By practicing hope in the face of adversity… We lift […]

In a Battle? Time to Get to Higher Ground!

In a Battle? Time to Get to Higher Ground!

In the midst of the storms of this life, have we considered how well we are communicating with the One who controls the winds and the waves? In the middle of the firefight when the flames are raging, how well are we communicating with the Ultimate Incident Commander? “Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me for in you my soul takes refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. I cry out to […]

When God Whispers To Our Hearts

When God Whispers To Our Hearts

When God Whispers to Our Heart: There are moments of regret that I experience from time to time… They are inescapable, unforgettable, and their memory forever etched into my mind… These moments are few but so powerful for they have to do with my own ignorance… I pray so often that God will draw near to me… I pray that in some divine way that He will speak to me.. And yet I forget that when He speaks I am […]

The Furnace of Adversity 

The Furnace of Adversity 

The Furnace of Adversity: One who studies leadership will continue to find this scene repeated time and time again throughout history:  Leaders will be attacked. No matter whether the leader is one of integrity or one of falsehood it is a verifiable fact that leaders will be attacked, persecuted, and falsely accused. In fact, the greater the moral integrity or dedication to one’s calling the greater the opposition one can expect.  The greater the achievements for the sake of the […]

The Shareholders Meeting

The Shareholders Meeting

The Shareholders Meeting: In a dimly lit room holding about thirty individuals from various countries, backgrounds, and experience levels all sat conversing their vested interest in a precious commodity. There were questions posed from those transitioning from one point of leadership to another. There were questions asked from those just beginning their journey in investing in this commodity. Thoughts were provoked, hearts were stirred, and the young and the elder sat at the same table without rank or recognition all […]
