Do Not Panic

Fear indeed has torment. If you will make it through life, even as one, who is known to heaven, you will have to learn not to panic, no matter what happens. The strategy of the devil is to use the experiences you have submitted yourself to, prior to any situation, to create a narrative that…

Permission to Edit

There are certain things that cannot be changed by spoken words, negative emotions, terrible attitudes and changing environment . . . one of them is a person’s true identity. It is possible to change appearance, style, outlook, perception and responses; but who you really are will not change until something really drastic happens that brings…

“How can you walk,If you don’t know the way of the Spirit.How can you fly,If you don know the way of the wind . . .?” Walking with God is a hard and stupid proposition for anyone that would not be led by the Holy Spirit. Working with God is pretty much summarized in believing…

Focus in the Viewfinder

Focus is not a simple thing. It comes with excruciating pain. Just as it is easier to be untidy than it is to be tidy, there is a degree of intentionality to focus. Exploring ‘everything’ and ‘everyone’ comes effortlessly by default. If there is no focus, life will be somewhat colorful, yet without impactful…being focused…

Skeptics and the Shifts

I was in church for the first time in a very long time since COVID happened. Evidently, so much is never going to be the same again. I know it is human to easily forget our traumas and return to life, like nothing really happened but it seems we are unaware that this particular trauma…

Defaults and Designs

For over 39 years I have enjoyed divine health from God that the last time I was in a hospital for anything major was 1986, then 1993 when I was hit by a car on my day of fast. Not one time had the things God put in my body given me a reason to…

Already Done

Walking an unknown pathway is not strange, every known one was once an unknown pathway. Still, ‘directional signages’ are helpful in making smart choices; though the edge of adventure may be far removed. So, what will it be?A journey or an adventure? Your choices will not matter in the end; believe me, you will soon…
