Hello Weekend, Rest was so important to God that he mandated a rest.  He knew the importance of enjoying what he had created.  Many of us were raised with this mindset “there is always something to do” which is true but it should never take the place from you to set...

Peace, the Ring and the Humble Ones

Peace, the Ring and the Humble Ones

I’ve had a burning in my heart all week for this post.  Thankfulness is always the goal, but it will come from a different angle this week. The writer of the book and now famous movie “Lord of the Rings” tells this story with a prophetic insight to much of what is...

The Reason to Stop Asking “Why?”

The Reason to Stop Asking “Why?”

I am a big fan of that old show "The Wonder Years"  It's about life in the late 1960's and 1970's.  That was my era, my time.   I was the first black kid in the suburban neighborhood where I grew up, and that in itself brought about some challenges, but my life...

How Far Can You Go?

How Far Can You Go?

Do you remember the original opening to the Twilight Zone?  "There is a 5th dimension.  Beyond that which is known to man.  It's a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.  It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and...

Your Destiny Is Back In the Future

Your Destiny Is Back In the Future

Do you remember the movie Back to the Future?  It's a story about a teenage boy and a doctor who invents a time machine.  It seemed like a harmless adventure so the Doc could study history.  The problem was once they went into the past they kept screwing up the...

You Were Prepared for this Moment

You Were Prepared for this Moment

I was reading a study today that said teenage drug overdose deaths went up 19% last year.  In one year, that's a lot of young people that were in overwhelming situations. You are probably in some kind of challenge in your life, right?  It may be family, financial or...

You’re Not Alone

You’re Not Alone

When I was fourteen I crushed my vertebra in a skateboard accident.  I was very fortunate because it was my sixth vertebra and not my fifth which could have caused me to be paralyzed in some form.  I had to lay flat on my back for several days while a brace was built...

God Needs?…

God Needs?…

A man was on a journey when he decided to stop and rest.  Being late, he wasn’t expecting much to be open, but he was also trying to avoid the crowds so this was a good time.  He located a small pub just inside the city limits, parked his car and walked inside, the...

Open Arms

Open Arms

Have you ever asked God, "How did I get here?"  The question is really rhetorical, but it's a necessary dialogue because you really desire to backtrack through the last season to set marker stones of reminders the way Israel did to remember the great things God did...
