I was dating this guy, and I was really into him. So whenever he called, I made it my duty to answer. I wanted to know him and everything about him. No time was too early or too late for us to spend hours talking. If he called at 2:36AM my sleep would have to wait because my man was on the line.
My father used to tell me stories of what it was like growing up in his country. A wave of excitement always lit up his face as he reminisced and talked about the warm sun, white sand, fresh fruit, and clean water.
In this new age of technology and scientific facts, spiritual warfare (the battle against rulers, authorities and the powerful evil forces of fallen angels headed by Satan) can seem so unreal but the truth is, it’s a reality. Ephesians 6:12 states “we battle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Contrary to pop-culture belief, Money, power, and respect are NOT the keys to life. As wonderful as it may be to have any or all of the three, the real master key is stewardship. Yes, stewardship or (how we manage life) will ALWAYS determine where we go, who we travel with, and how we get there! But, what does that have to do with your wants and needs when what you need is more money and you want it now!?
Wait: To stay in one place and anticipate or expect something.
Amongst the many descriptions of “waiting”, the above definition is what struck me the most. It describes the skill and purposefulness that is involved in the act of waiting.
There is no greater joy than to raise up a child who is completely dependent on you, looks to you for everything, hangs onto your every word and does their best to mimic your every move. Sounds great doesn’t it!!! There is also no greater responsibility that a parent/guardian can have than the raising, nurturing, the development, and continuous education of a child.

Secrets. Everyone has them and few are willing to come clean. They destroy relationships and may very well turn your impeccable world upside down. Writer Robin Baker understood this and wrote about it in the stage play, “The Best Kept Secrets”.
Today is our birthday and we are one! On May 3rd 2010 SO DIVINE launched in hopes of reaching out to many individuals across the globe and we’ve done just that!
I was shocked when my friend told me that it took her a long time to believe that God loved her. But I was even more shocked when I found myself thinking the very same thing.
Are you a God chaser? I am. What do I mean by that? I’m glad you asked. I have prayed, cried, hollered, kicked scratched (Well…, not really, but you get the idea), and basically poured my heart out to God for more of him
Lately I have been bombarded with statements from many self proclaimed non-Christians that “we believe in the same God”. And I like to tell them, “No way!”
Do you know you have a call on your life? Maybe you probably already know that. Or maybe you don’t know that. Or maybe you’ve been sensing that the Lord is calling you to something but you don’t know what it is. Or maybe you are searching for that calling.
Now-a-days everyone is hip to technology, and we’re pretty sure you’re no exception. At the click of a button we can have access to almost anything in the world and more importantly the Word of God.
As a youth I can remember learning and reciting the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13), the Psalm of David (Psalm 23) and even the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17); all which were considered to be staple scriptures every Christian should live and abide by with their walk and growth in Christ.
Dancehall recording artist Shaggy released a song titled “Church Heathen.” Given the reoccurring scandals that include tax evasion to the sordid details of affairs there are thousands of reasons to avoid attending church.
Just yesterday I asked my husband how can he tell when he hears lies from the enemy (the devil himself). His answer made perfect sense and confirmed that it is a way he does speak to us.
I was about 9 nine years old and full of youthful exuberance and zeal; surrounded by neighbors who were like family, friends to play with within walking distance, and house that felt like the size of a football field.
I Don’t Fit In — This phrase has become common to a full-out, on-fire-for-Christ, picking-up-their-cross-and-leaving-the-rest-behind-believer, like myself!
I often wondered what’s in a fast. Starve myself and feel uncomfortable all for what? This act called fasting must be in The Ten Commandments, The Beatitudes perhaps, or even be a part of the Lords prayer; surprisingly, none of the aforementioned comment on fasting in any form.
Do we accept as truth the words spoken by King David in Psalm 139:14, that I am “fearfully and wonderfully made”? Or have these words become another meaningless cliché?
