The Greatest Hind Catcher

I don’t too tough watch baseball, but when I do, it amazes me how fast those pitches are thrown. When the pitcher steps up to the mound, get in position, and throw the ball, my eyes quickly glance to the right, to watch the clocking speed, and boy is it fast. Nine times out ofContinue reading “The Greatest Hind Catcher”

In between the bookends

Have you ever been in a library and noticed an array of books, either enclosed between or leaning up against two bookends? Imagine God holding you up from the front and back, while allowing you to rest and lean on Him for support. In Matthew 11:28, “God advises all that are weary and burdened, toContinue reading “In between the bookends”

Obey the call

There’s more to me than writing books. There’s more to me than creating encouraging “notes”. There’s so much more in me waiting to develop, and as of late, things have started to. I’ve always known that there is more to me than what there is. I’ve never really been satisfied and content with anything I’veContinue reading “Obey the call”

Break the net

For majority of your life, you’ve been fishing. Whether it be for opportunity, wealth, or promotion, amongst other things, you’ve continuously cast your line, but nothing appears to take the bait. Take a moment and reflect on the things you’ve repeatedly done over the course of your life. Did any of it work? What aboutContinue reading “Break the net”

It ends good

Last week I was in the kitchen preparing my lunch, when I heard God say to me, “It ends good.” For the first time in a very long time, I didn’t question Him or have any skepticism. He continued, “When people ask you how you can smile in the midst of your struggles, tell them,Continue reading “It ends good”

The ugly side

The promise is always better than the process. It may take you awhile to get to it, but eventually you will. I used to side eye people who professed the patience and joy they had, as they awaited the birth of a new season. For them, waiting was “easy” and they did it without complaints,Continue reading “The ugly side”

Hidden until the perfect time

Do you know who you are? Are you mad because others don’t? Are you still struggling to be seen? Have you done great and wonderful things, only for it all to go unnoticed? You’re amped up, hype and excited for the phase in your life, because now couldn’t be a better time, so you believe.Continue reading “Hidden until the perfect time”

I didn’t forget

I’m often asked, “Where does your notes come from?” To which I always reply, “God.” I’m not saying that for points, to be cliché, or viewed as impressive, but it’s the truth. When I sit down to write, I have no idea what I’m going to say, until God releases it to me. I justContinue reading “I didn’t forget”

Listen to your heart

We’ve all heard the expression, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”, but following it can get you in trouble at times. A year and some change ago (if you’re from the south like me, you’ll know the meaning of that metaphor), I befriended a guy, that I really should’ve looked the other wayContinue reading “Listen to your heart”

Waitlisted

My oldest sister loves luxury, designer, high-end, high-quality things. While she is not materialistic, she is a woman who gets what she wants, especially if she has the means to do so. For quite some time, I’ve known she’s wanted a particular luxury purse. As a result of it being in high demand, she hasn’tContinue reading “Waitlisted”
