Our goal is not to secure applause and accolades.


Applause and accolades, to flatter and stimulate the ego, are empty and fleeting.


Our goal is to humbly remain driven to do God's Will, 


despite what we can or cannot see. 


Our goal is to cultivate, embrace,


 and pass on God's Peace with care, love, and grace...


to the best of our ability.

1Corinthians 10:31


“Do all to the glory of God.” 


This is the first principle of all godly life. 


The “Glory of God”—the carrying out of God's Will.


We are taught that if we 


“Seek this first, all the other things shall be added unto us.”


is endeavoring to positively and creatively sow

 

inspirational seeds and serve as a source 


of Spiritual upliftment.


We pray these seed thoughts, illustrations,


and wholesome nuggets will, in some way,


reach out and speak to the needs of those who are 


 often overlooked, marginalized, deprived, and forgotten.



We pray these seed thoughts will provide Biblical, 


applicable, and timely spiritual upliftment to those who are


living under severe hardship, and those who are...


or have been tried by persecution,


grief, criticism, and scorn.


We pray the contents of this website will serve


as a fresh incentive for individuals to obtain strength,


victory, a spiritually richer and more fulfilling life,


and mostly...


equip and point others 


back to the Perfect One within us...


Who is majestic, perfectly good, just, righteous, without


 partiality, faithful to His promises, 


Intimately aware of all of creation... and 


"Able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think"...


simultaneously!


believes within each of us is the Fountain of all good.

 

We believe God is within every one of us. 


We believe God is ever-present and


dwells within the innermost heart of man. 


We firmly believe we shall find God 


within ourselves when we turn and seek God...


 within ourselves.


May we seek the Oneness within.



This website draws heavily upon


God's Word. 


Our views do not speak for or to any specific religion.


We believe Spirituality extends far beyond 


the known and observable realm of 


worldly barriers and designations perceived between 


ourselves and others.


God is Truth. 

Truth is transcultural;

 if something is true, it is true for all people, 

in all places, at all times.

We believe Spirituality transcends 


the material aspects of life.


This typically means being less self-serving, 


overcoming ego and self-righteous indignation, 


elevating our consciousness,


 and emulating the characteristics of our Creator.


We believe God wants us to share the bread of life,


the Greatest News to share,


with every tribe, nation, and tongue. 

We believe Spirituality extends far beyond barriers

and worldly designations, i.e., race, tribe, creed, color, gender, language, age, 

culture, disability, political beliefs, educational background, or 

socioeconomic differences, experiences, or realities.

We believe that we fall short when we take a narrow view of the world 


and give in to stereotyping.


Given that... one cannot rise above destructive and violent rhetoric. 



We believe the idea of difference, worldly isms, and class privilege 


are interlocking systems of oppression. 


They appear to be natural; however, they are, in fact, socially constructed 


and are used to rationalize inequality and all kinds of isms.



Spirit makes us relevant to anyone, anywhere, anytime.


The Scriptures affirm the fundamental equality of all people before God.


God's Word is very clear in telling us that no one is insignificant.


Every single person is important, vital, and valuable to God.


It is our belief that if God is at work in our hearts


giving us the desire to lovingly help others come to experience the joy


 in knowing Him and realizing and experiencing His love,


especially considering the times and issues we are faced with in this fallen world,


we would limit ourselves and be a disservice to the Kingdom of God


 if we did not share or chose to share only from one culture, 


laced with isms and ego.


We believe, with God in the forefront of all of our affairs, 


we can rise above narrow and habitual ways of thinking about other 


beings and free ourselves from identification with the temporary state of our 


physical forms as we remember our true nature.



We strongly believe when truth is well wrapped in God's grace...


we are able to effectively witness to every


tribe, nation, and tongue.



**Every tribe, nation, and tongue emphasizes


the concept of wholeness, entirety, or all-encompassing.


We are all the work of God's hand.

-- Isaiah 64:8. 


Jesus always included people.


He embraced others... 


with a radical disregard for their  


race, tribe, creed, color, class, religion, language,


age, culture, disability, political beliefs,


educational background, or socioeconomic differences,


experiences, or realities. 

"Jesus ransomed people for God from every tribe and language 


and people and nation."


Revelations 5:9

We believe those of us who know God 


know that no one can annul what God has planned and purposed. 


As we wholeheartedly pursue a relationship with God and follow Jesus' lead... 


we, too, can boldly and bravely take advantage of every opportunity to exalt God 


publicly... especially in our, sincere, actions and words.

Jesus did not allow social status or cultural barriers


to dictate His relationships with people.


It didn't matter who they were, where they had been,


 or how long they had been out there.


Tradition, cultural restrictions, or the displeased, fighting mad, 


irate behavior of a few people, on the sidelines, 


did not discourage Jesus.



Jesus made the most of every opportunity to minister to 


souls that were callused, in despair, and  


thirsting for truth. 


Jesus was criticized for His actions,


but what prophet ever lived without criticism???


Jesus' example shows us that we should not allow worldly barriers,


 such as geographical limits to particular countries, communities, 


religions, or traditions to dictate whom we share the Good News with.

Jesus promised:


The Spirit will empower us to be witnesses

has been bountifully blessed to benefit and glean


from the life experiences of many determined people,


nations, cultures, and generations. 



Our mentors generously passed-on to us wonderful pearls of wisdom 


 and treasure troves of truth, beauty, and pragmatic advice. 


Their rich experiences and deposits sown... 


have been invaluable to us.


We have also been compelled to draw from our up-close and personal reserve 


of relevant information accumulated over a lifetime


of observations, failures and/or mistakes, 


experiences, and consciousness of our existence. 



Just as our ancestors generously passed-on pearls of wisdom to us... 


we are freely sharing some of the vital life lessons learned, 


as well as wisdom, and happiness we have acquired throughout the years.


Our main purpose for developing this website

is not to place ourselves as the experts 

or as flawless individuals without faults or failures.

Trust... we realize we are flawed, 

and we certainly do not have a shortage of faults. 

We know that we have much more to learn, this is why, 

with great intentionality...

we humbly remain teachable spirits and usable channels for Greater Works.

We, sincerely, believe blessings and life lessons learned


should NOT be placed under a basket, but passed on...


 from one to the other.


It is our prayer the virtual chapters, on this website,


will serve as a positively good Spiritual feast, 


that will enlighten minds,


strengthen souls, and call our visitors to


positively good and righteous actions.

May our words be edifying

and have immortal significance in the lives we touch...

and may they project beauty into the lives of future generations.

This website is based on the idea of freely offering inspiration,


motivation, and edification as a gift


rather than trading or asking for monetary support.


We are not here to judge or condemn others. 


 It is not our purpose to make you agree with us, 


but rather to point you to the One who can do anything, 


created and controls everything!


We are fully aware that God does not call the equipped; 


God equips the called.


We know that we cannot open someone's heart to God's Truth, 


but God can.

We believe we draw people to God by walking the talk... 


not by discrediting who people are,


what others have done, or believe.



We believe others will desire to know


 the Source of our joy...


as we let God's Light shine through us.


Then Jesus said to them...

tell everyone...
