Pursue you passion!

There is much to be done, so do not settle for your second best when you can be the first to share your talent with someone else. Yes, you do possess a talent. God gives us gifts according to His grace!

Let's do it,

Rain Showers

Often times, rain showers may be looked upon as a hindrance to outside enjoyment, such as playing in the yard, at the park, or even taking a daily walk. When I was a toddler, we use to sing this song that goes like this, "rain, rain, go away come back another day....because I want to go outside and play". Years later and experiences later, I see rain showers in a different light. Rain is needed to help sustain the life of the birds and other wild animals to nourish their bodies. In addition, rain is needed for the plants and trees to grow.

As the rain drops hit the earth, there is a new beginning of life, a replenished root, rejuvenation of life, newness of growth. As the soil soaks up the water, there is a need for more rain showers to start the process over again. Life is a revolving door. There are seasons of drought, times where all needs are met, and times where a new revelation must be birthed. None of this can happen if it were not for the rain showers.

I remember the first time I heard the word “advocacy”. It was used in the context of a group of people who were speaking on the behalf of another. If you Google the word “advocacy”, more than 25 million entries will appear. The results may range from public policy groups, women affairs advocates, children advocacy groups, animal groups, and the list continues.
Webster’s dictionary defines “advocacy” as the act or process of advocating or supporting a cause or proposal. Therefore, it can be reasonably concluded that one of the attributes of an advocate is one who supports a cause; thereby, speaking out and representing a person or group of people who may or may not be able to defend or have the platform to do the same. Well, Jesus is the Advocate for the believer. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).

A Psalm of Thanksgiving

Psalm 100 - A Psalm of Thanksgiving 

1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
   come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
   It is he who made us, and we are his;
   we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
   and his courts with praise;
   give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
   his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Do you have anything to be thankful for? What about the air you breathe, the food you eat, the ability to walk without assistance, the clean water you drink, the clothes you wear. There is so much we can thank God for and there is not enough space available to list them all. As we enter the season of Thanksgiving and as we prepare the many feasts on Thanksgiving Day across the nation, let us remember the many things we are blessed to enjoy and thank the One who has allowed us to enjoy them.

We sing wh…
