If you are like me, you start the year with a refreshed perspective on what's possible. The change of the calendar year offers the possibility of something new and exciting. There is something amazing about a fresh start. Then, the realities of life set in. Before you know it, it's February and things have gone back to what they were the year before. It doesn't take long before you hear yourself saying, "I can't wait until this year is over!" With Spring blooming, we have the opportunity to re-center ourselves in our goals, reevaluate our expectations, and prayerfully consider the direction we will take in our lives, relationships, careers, and overall wellbeing!

My trip to Bath and Body Works helped me to realize that we often forget about Black-Owned businesses. This is my tribute to them. Buy a black-owned candle rather than participating in the prostituting of Black culture at big box stores. --- Support this podcast:
Dream Anyway #138

Dream Anyway #138


DO you remember the story in the Bible about Joseph, Jacob’s son? Joseph was eventually sold into slavery by his brothers, manipulated by his owner’s wife and eventually vindicated and promoted. Joseph had a gift for dreaming and interpreting dreams. It created a stumbling block for him among those that were supposed to love him the most. “HERE COMES THAT DREAMER," they said when the see him come from afar off. --- Support this podcast:

What did David mean in Psalm 23:5 when he said "my cup runneth over?" Over the last few weeks, I’ve endeavored to enjoy a cup of coffee at home. While I’ve had one or two slip-ups, I’ve been relatively successful. In an effort to encourage me, I’ve purchased a variety of flavored non-dairy creamers and themed mugs. I forgot what was on the cup when it took it out of the cabinet, rinsed it, and placed it on the Keurig plate. My goal was to make half of a cup because it was pretty late at night. After the coffee brewed, I noted the sheer irony…. A half-empty cup of coffee in a cup with the words, “my cup runneth over.” Naturally, my mind wandered and I started asking questions? What did David mean in Psalm 23:5? --- Support this podcast:
This is an edited version of a lesson shared on Sunday, January 9, 2022. The lesson chronicles the experience of Jacob, who is on a journey back to his hometown of Beersheba. God interrupts his trip in an unexpected way, building upon the promise he made to Jacob's father and grandfather. I discuss how we can use Jacob's experience to better understand the "why" of the seasons we endure. --- Support this podcast:

Whatever system hurts you will generally become the target you point at when the next system makes you feel liberated. True liberation is when you are free from systems and targets! When God gives me the grace and strength to forgive the people who hurt me in my last system, HE even frees me from the system that manipulated my vulnerability. MY pain is just gonna be my testimony. Not my weapon. I’m not trying to hurt you. I’m trying to live healed. Source: Article --- Support this podcast:
