Subtle Shift

I have been watching a lot of movies lately; it seems the major avenue to relax for me these days. Now, if you watch a lot of movies like I do, you won’t go too far before you would come across movies that would stir something in you . . . negatively or positively. This…

Where I Stand . . .

From where I stand, I see so much I can not utter with words; but I take solace in the fact that my heart is instructed, towards righteousness, by the things I see . . . good or bad.   When I share what I see with anyone, it would be because I consider such…

Of Strength and Adversity​

“If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small.” Proverbs 24:10 In the middle of the sermon today in church, this Scripture popped into my spirit. It dawned on me that the failure of believers in fulfilling the will and purpose of God is from the lack of strength when it mattered…

Who is Who. . .

  The leper in Matthew 8 came without entitlement and worshipped the LORD by putting the decision for his healing in the hands of the LORD . . .

The Life of One

The life of one, The courage of a leader, The responsibility of the brave, The acceptance of limitations. Nothing is greater than glory, Nothing is more desirable than victory, Still, there are battles that would not end, The warrior would expire before the battle ends. Sometimes, all effort would fail, Old lessons would become valueless…

Flash Contemplations 1
