Before their eyes

Why is it, that when people are down, that’s the time they are kicked the most? The situation itself is painful enough, so adding salt to the wounds is certainly not needed. A lot of times, mockery can be the reason you can’t get up. Every time you try to better yourself and make progress,Continue reading “Before their eyes”

That’s Final

As a parent, how many times have you sternly told your child something, and then closed by saying, “And I mean it!” Much like you, God operates the same way. The only difference, He actually means what He says. I’m sure if your child cries or constantly asks you, “But can I?” you’ll likely caveContinue reading “That’s Final”

On Schedule

“I was supposed to be there by now,” but I’m so far behind. “I should be further along than where I am,” but I’m so far behind. “I was supposed to have graduated last year,” but I’m so far behind. “I was supposed to buy a house two years ago,” but I’m so far behind.Continue reading “On Schedule”

Overflow

I don’t like to see people struggle. When I do, I try my best to do something about it. Largely in part, because I was once in their shoes. Everyone either knows or has read about my poverty story, so it’s only natural that I have a soft spot for the less fortunate. Even ifContinue reading “Overflow”

Looking for the rain

Whenever I’d see dark clouds form in the sky, it was an indication to me, that rain or a thunderstorm was very likely to come. In the event that it did, I would automatically do one of two things: grab an umbrella or immediately seek shelter. Most often, I chose the latter, because I simplyContinue reading “Looking for the rain”

They could be you

“I’m hungry”, said the man, and “I have no money for food”. I gave, because he was me. “Can you help me, please? I was evicted out of my home, and I have no place to go”. I gave, because she was me. “Ma’am, I’ve lost my job and don’t know how I’m going toContinue reading “They could be you”

Greed

Two weeks ago, I was blessed with an opportunity of a lifetime, well, at least in my lifetime! I spoke to close to 400 students, faculty and staff, at one of the high schools in North, AL. Upon my arrival, I didn’t really know how many students I was going to speak to, because theContinue reading “Greed”

Set a part

Ever wonder why you your vibe doesn’t mesh well with someone else? Or, why you just can’t get on the same wavelength as them? It seems no matter how hard you try to adjust, you just can’t seem to get “in tune”. There’s a disconnect, and you’ve been set a part for a reason. You’reContinue reading “Set a part”
