A New Song

Her voice was haunting – a song which resonated to the depth of my soul. My longings to be set free erupted from a place – once hidden – but now exposed. Did I dare step out of The Boat again? Do I trust and leave fear behind? You were there waiting for me with […]

Voice of Redemption

I saw the sunset slowly descending into the arid desert, the view was picturesque and captivating.  At that moment a strong sensation came over me as I contemplated suicide. The fear of leaving my family behind triggered thoughts like a jigsaw puzzle – the pieces didn’t fit into my plans to be freed from a […]

“Die to Self”

The Lord is my Shepherd – I shall not want……..Yea, thou I walk through the valley of the “shadow of death”. Sometimes God calls me to walk through the valley of the shadow of death – this simply means something in my life has to die. The grief can become unbearable and the sense of […]

The Meadow

The last hint of night fall has lifted like a curtain to display The Beauty of The Meadow. I meet You with new songs – I see beams of sunlight emerging from beyond the trees, yellow and white petals laden in the grassy field – fresh dew preserved the landscape throughout the night. You have […]

My Encounter with God

Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the king’s house. All that Solomon had planned to do in the house of the Lord and in his own house he successfully accomplished.  Then the Lord appeared to Solomon in the night and said to him: “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this […]

My Ancestors – My Roots

Like shadows moving in the wind – I saw My Ancestors move from slavery to a life of freedom. I am still haunted but encouraged by their sacrifice. Their stolen families and miles of hard labor used to build another man’s dream. Their blood – crying out from the ground – saturated. Swallowed up by […]

“Restored”

As I awakened this morning at Bettie and Melvin’s home I recognize that you can lose all sense of time – It is like going back to a place so long ago – The vastness of God’s Glory is expressed in each new day – Every breath – I am consumed – As my senses […]
