Peace in the Desert

I stumbled, well maybe walked straight way into this desert, never meaning to call it home. But, I’ve been walking here a while now — forever it seems. I am thirsty. I am so very thirsty. I am weary even. When I began this journey I loved the sun on my skin, but the sun is no longer my friend. It has burned and beaten me.  When I started this journey I had a friend. We said, we would never part. He said he would never leave. You know those promises, ‘No matter what I will be here for you.’ But he left me, and I have been walking alone ever since.

Get Over Broke: Free Isn’t Christ-Like!

Free Isn’t Christ-Like

I no longer ‘free-a-way’ what is valuable to me. None of us do really. You see, once we know our personal value and what is valuable to us, we recognize the cost associated with what we have learned, working in our giftedness and/or living our personal beliefs. We never ‘free-a-away’ again. Read more

Bible Scholars and Homophobes!

"I Do?"

OK, President Obama’s position and his personal thoughts regarding gay marriage are just that. They are his personal beliefs.  Does this make him less Christian, less black, less good, or more bad?  Many would say, “Yes”. However, I think not.  We all have varying perspectives and views on this subject and many others.  Have you taken a position lately on divorce in our country or your state even (the devastation on families), adultery, abortion, or lying, all of which God hates?  I am certain your views vary from my own and the good Christian who sits next to you on Sunday morning.

A Helping of Ego

How many people have I sincerely offered to help whom have refused me?  If sincerity were not applied to this question, I would come with a ready answer of many or countless. However, the truth of the matter is ‘sincerely’ shifts the entire paradigm and makes this quite a loaded question. Read more

Did You Make Him Love You? Really?!

What is love? Now that is a loaded question. I can only imagine the endless answers I would receive, as our stories, understanding and experiences are so broad and deep. Hell, love as we know it has started many a war or night club brawl. Many of us would wax eloquence and poetry about love. However, in all of our uniqueness and varied backgrounds, there is truly only one answer to the Love question. Read more

Agitated!

I am finding all the more faith comes with a push in my spirit. A push to do the uncomfortable. A push NOT to trust myself and what I know. A push to jump in the water and walk or step in it and part the Red sea. Read more

To Hell With the Church!

Luke 15: 11-32

I Left

For 15 years there was dead silence between us.  My spirit was deaf.  I did not know what to say to Him, and I did not open my mouth.  I was a mute.  I was on pause, and the batteries were dead.  I could no longer hear His voice, and I understood why.  I had @!#* it up.  I did not see Him anymore, and I no longer felt His touch. So I left.  I ended our relationship without one word.  I left him.  I left the raggedy church, the sorry preachers and I never said goodbye. Read more
