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”

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”

A little bit goes a long way

Every now and then, I’ll meander into the kitchen, and 30 minutes later, I’m cooking. Before you ask for a plate, there’s nothing unique, elaborate, or special even, about my meals, partly because I don’t know how to cook. I’ll admit, it’s fun to try, but I don’t necessarily want to make a habit ofContinue reading “A little bit goes a long way”

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”

Painful Profit

Last night, I cried a river longer than the Jordan and Nile combined. Being burdened is a lot to deal with, especially when it seems as though you’re carrying the load by yourself. Although God puts no more on us than we can bare, I can barely stand the little He does place on me.Continue reading “Painful Profit”
