Life is too short to allow man’s evil words and deeds 


to reside in our mind or spirit. 


We must move past the past 


and keep pressing on to higher ground 


where people are progressive, growing spiritually, 


and trying to do God’s Will.


High souls, who are trying to do God's Will, 


would see gossiping and slandering as being petty, 


a waste of precious time, and beneath their dignity.



I know I am far from perfect. 


Actually, no one is perfect – 


apart from Jesus. 



Cultivating a close relationship with God 


does not require one to be perfect.


I can’t and don't intend to deny the reality 


of what God has done in my life. 



When I reflect on my past


 and the many times I made poor choices 


and bad turns… I look and see... 


undeserved grace and mercy...


all over me. 



When I think about illnesses, prayers answered, 


close calls in traffic, 


and the many storms that we have weathered… 


I see where God’s grace and mercy, 


which I could never earn, 


kept us. 

When I am reminded of the times 


I felt like I could not make it... 


or take another step, but somehow I did… 


some may say it was “Luck”, 


but Believers will say it was


the power of God’s Divine “Grace” 


that imparted the strength 


to help me endure and get through it.



God’s grace ignites gratitude 


within me. 


Apart from God...I am nothing. 



I sincerely believe, anything less 


than full acknowledgement 


of  how powerful God’s love is for us, 


and how He pours out 


His goodness on us 


like we had never sinned… 


renders one as a total ingrate.



How can one feel justified in praising man, the finite... 


with his limited knowledge and understanding; 


yet, shrink back and not share 


The Good News about the Creator, 


Who is Infinitely above 


anything and everything, 


visible and invisible, 


we can attempt to discern 


or express?



All things in Heaven and on earth 


are under God's  


immeasurable, boundless, 


immense, endless, 


forever, and Omnipresent authority.




Hebrews 13:16 reminds us...


Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, 


for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. 



Many times we want to shine, 


without the pain and uncertainty 


of what those seasons of pain taught us. 


We long to reflect beauty 


without the glaring weakness of deep cracks 


that line our stories and fill us with holes. 


We want to cover what was broken and scarred, 


masking the struggles of a past 


that took us down difficult pathways. 


And yet, embracing and sharing the beauty of the broken 


is what enables us to live free... 


with greater purpose, 


changed hearts, and renewed vision.



When we overcome, 


we are able to strengthen others. 


Out of our greatest tests comes our greatest testimony.



Proverbs 3:27 reminds us...


Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due 


when it is in your power to do it. 



Proverbs 11:25 tells us...


Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,


and one who waters will himself be watered.



Lifting God’s Name up, and even blogging… being a conduit, 


a vessel for God to use doesn’t require one to be perfect. 



One main command of the gospel 


is to spread it, 


to tell the Good News!



The Gutenberg Bible contains these words:


“God suffers in the multitude of souls 


whom His word cannot reach.”



God’s truth should not be confined or imprisoned. 


Instead, God’s steadfast love and faithfulness 


is the treasure that all of God’s Creation 


should be exposed to.
