I Choose Life


What direction will you travel in?

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:26-28 KJV

Ask yourself: What am I going to do today? Will I impact my day for the good or will I allow myself to be defeated?

Make today a great day…How?  Find peace in the little things.  Challenge yourself today to look at life positive and through the lense of God.

There is so much pain around us.  There is so much disappointment hovering over us (some we can control and some we can’t).

It is my prayer that we can find that balance today…whether it is in the good times or the bad. We must trust God to give us sunshine and even rain.

However, the great thing about God is he knows exactly what we need when we need it. I can not say that everything will be as we like it to be. I don’t know the mind of God. I don’t know why bad things happen to good people.

But this is what I know is God has all things under His control and for us it will work for our good. So, trust Him in your trials, triumphs and your what is going on God moments.

Choose life in Christ don’t sit around in defeat when you have the great liberator Jesus Christ waiting to work things out for your good.

A Deeper Reflection


Hmm… “What is my assignment God?” While listening to Marvin Sapp crooning in my ears…  Am I doing what you desire?  Praying, while reflecting…

Have you ever had this conversation with God?  There is so much in this world that is not right but God is right…

Serving Him is my privilege… (As my heart is overwhelmed by His presence)…  It is something when God isolates you and shows you your frailties, your inadequacies, your inconsistencies all within a moment of time.

“God overflow in my heart that I might become the man that you desire?”  As people pass by the window, I am sitting in front of I realize I no longer notice them (they have become just mere images  passing by).  Sitting in a crowded restaurant feeling as if it is God and I.

Have you ever had this moment?  God just wants your attention…How funny it is today…Had a 2hr lunch break forced upon me and though I am in crowded spaces, He and I are all alone.

I am in deeper reflection.  It is a deep soul reflection…”God is my life pleasing to you?’ Help me to truly discover my assignment in this life?”

I guess that message I heard at church yesterday really impacted my life, “I am on assignment.” Do you ever think about your assignment?


Walking…Deeper reflection. You can do alot of work in the Church (the institution); however, am I truly walking in my calling, fulfilling my purpose…effectively caring out my godly assignment?

Have you ever thought about these things? God helps me to recognize my limitations and also my hearts desires.

So I am nearing the end of my lunch as I am reflecting deeper…God I want to behold your face and live a deeper and more consistent life. I want to be a better man, husband and father…


A deeper, greater reflection in God. Have you ever had this conversation with God? Wow what a forced 2hrs… Or maybe a divine encounter….

Isaiah 6:1-5,

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.

We will never know when God will allow us to have an encounter with His holiness. But we should always be seeking to be in His presence. Wow what a deeper reflection.

Have you ever had this conversation with God?
