Death draws us close

Oftentimes we get to know our family members or we are all in the same place and country when someone dies. Death has a way of bringing us close, even closer than a wedding. For the past week I have witnessed my family come together as never before. We have made time for play, for the…

Discomfort in the midst of favor

Today I asked God for favor, something that I have as a Son. In the midst of favor, my faith in the promise was tested. I had to endure some discomfort as God was showing me that he got this!

Love wants to be near

We have all heard and know that God is love, but really what does that mean to us? Let’s take a moment to think about this… God is love, but what does love require of me? God (love) requires relationship and intimate fellowship with each of us. Love want to be close! If you love someone wouldn’t…

Come out of that valley, go to the high tower

Distracted? Draw near to God

The thief comes but only to steel to kill and to destroy. Our adversary does not want to see us living an overcomers life so he will try to invade our lives and our minds with old issues. Don’t be slighted when you have to face the same trial again.

My father the gardner

Whenever I am in Tobago my father is so excited. He will take me to the garden and show me all that he has done. He would say, while pointing at his crops, “all this, I do for my children, not for me.” Oh how I love my dad, My father the Gardner.

Trusting God’s Process

For me one of the most difficult thing is to want something pray about and wait. It’s nerve wrecking. When I pray I like to be reassured that God is in agreement with what I am asking and that is not always the case. For a while now I have been praying for somethings and…

There is relief in praise!

In the midst of worry, distress, mind battle and even tribulation there is a relief in my praise. If only we can move pass the issue and shout, “Jesus! I love you! I praise you in the midst of it all”! We will receive his grace, peace and joy. In my moments of worry about job,…

Are you hungry?

As a result of our hunger our need for righteousness (right living or standing with God), God’s promise is that we shall be filled. How simple right?
