Joy Received

Yes, Christmas has passed; but we are still in the season. The season of Joy recognized, of joy received. Why do we miss that? If we can hold on to the watching, the being- The watching more of what God has for us. The being more of who we really are. If we can - then we can receive more joy. Let this season be your springboard into your joy.

Be in the present moment with God. Don't jump ahead of what God is doing. That right there will bring joy. enough for now.

Joy Pouring

Blessings of joy and harmony with self and with others; as you celebrate the love of God that has been poured into you. Make this season a start of thanksgiving forever. Give thanks for all that God has done in your life. Lift your load by loving on one another as God loves on you. Merry Christmas to all! Happy birthday Jesus! enough for now.

Joy Blessings

Merry Christmas! Blessings of joy and release this season. Blessings as you walk in the peace this season affords. Yes, in spite of the hurrying about, in spite of the gift panic, in spite of your aloneness. You really can experience joy and peace. That is my gift for you- to experience the peace that God gives. Walk in it. enough for now.

Be Still

Just be. Just be still. Wow. I heard that all the time as I was growing up. I was into everything. Wanting to see, to know, and being still took too much time. Now I recognize the power in being still and hearing from God. And now I have no problem with doing just that. So, let's get still together- to hear what God is saying. Go ahead - try it. Be still- and know that he is God. enough for now.

Giving God Thanks

Give thanks.  I hear it so much here in Jamaica. "Giving God Thanks." And although they are sometimes worn down with the politics of the day, they still give God thanks. I am quite sure that is a key that too often we forget to use. Of course, we don't thank him for what he will do; but that he ahs already done so much- we owe that much to him.

Give thanks for your life, your day to day walk. Give thanks for what you have. Give thanks for what yo do not have, as some of what yo do not have could have messed you up. Walk in your blessing today just by giving thanks. enough for now.

A Plan

I gave this to my son and grandsons earlier. There is a plan. There is a plan for your life. God did not create you without his plan. Jeremiah says it best, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” There is a plan for you.  Let that permeate. enough for now.

Clean It Up

This is a great day! Jamaica rushes to clean up, paint up, repair in preparation for Christmas. I find it interesting in that at home in America we rush around buying and decorating. There is nothing wrong with that either. I love both sides, but wouldn't it be better to clean up, paint up, repair and then decorate?

This causes me to think about how we prepare self for the celebration of this season.  Do we just adorn ourselves in festive attire and do nothing about the changing of our attitude? Do we decorate the mask of our projected self instead of concern for our true self? I mean - wouldn't it be more important to clean up the dark places in our life? To rid ourselves of the things that cause us to suffer needlessly? Wouldn't it be better to smile and laugh from a real place instead of that front- the fake that you do?

Let's start in this season to clean up, fix up the dark in our lives. We start in is season (cause we have to start somewhere); but we continue beyond this season while walking more positively in our lives. Get started, clean it up. enough for now.

Your Hope

A season of hope. This is Advent. What are your hopes? What are your dreams? What are you doing as you hope, as you dream? enough for now.

Day of Thankfulness

My mother used to say, “One man’s food is another’s poison.” I did not recognize how the original inhabitants of the land call America felt about the day we celebrate. I did not understand that it was not celebratory for them. 

For many of us it’s about family and getting together, loving together. We all need that. We all need a loving community. So I started thinking about what to say in my greetings. And then my cousin, Pat, texted me this morning with “Happy Day of Thankfulness.” I love it!

And I started in my journal another “100 things I’m thankful for.” And my thanks kept flowing. My prayers starting flowing. You see, my thanks became my prayers. To everyone, “Happy Day of Thankfulness”! May your thanks lead to prayers. May your prayers lead to change. May your change be of love. 

Please don’t miss what you have. Happy day of thankfulness! 🙅🏾‍♀️Wakanda forever. Family forever. 💕God’s love, God’s peace always! enough for now.

Look At You

Why is it so hard to look at our own faults? I think if we examined ourselves then we could row stronger. Take time and see what Holy Spirit shows you about you. And then be ready for a positive change. enough for now.

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Seize What Is Yours

The joy this day presents is there for you. Seize it! This is yours. Oh my goodness, it is there. Let that permeate your spirit. Too often, we can't recognize what we have in that joy, in that peace. Shift yor focus from missing your joy to seizing your joy. enough for now.

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Hold On

Hold on- help is on the way. You can’t see it, but it’s so close. You can’t feel it, it’s right there. Be still. Quit struggling against self. And just hold on. enough for now.

Wiggle Room

Do you know that you have wiggle room? The path is narrow, but you can wiggle. You can dance, you can skip. Too often too many have believed that life is so rigid. Life has so much to offer, as long as you stay on the path- but you can wiggle. Look around, smell the flowers, view the clouds laugh, and listen. enough for now.

One Day

One day at a time. Be encouraged. In this one day believe in yourself. Do not let negativity enter your thoughts. Think on things that are positive. Today. enough for now.

This is Your Day

This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it! This is your day made for you by God. Your joys are contained in this day. Your peace is available this day. Your anxiety is relieved this day. Oh can’t you feel it? This day was made for you. Walk in it. Accept it as the present it is. It is a special present to you. Live in this present moment of the day with God. enough for now.

Take Time

In times like these, we can carelessly lose our way when we are not sure who we are. We must be sure who we are, and being sure is a part of us knowing what we stand on. How can we know what we stand on? Hmm. We can stand on who we are as being created in God's will. And we can listen and follow. When we can listen and follow we can be sure of our path.

These times challenge us to be clear of what we believe and who we believe. What are you values? That too is tantamount. Take time today to hear and to follow. enough for now..

Story Behind the Story

Slowing down. I'm slowing down to hear the story behind the story. Most of us know the story. But is always a story behind the story- the place - the reason - why we do what we do. That is the story that shape our lives. I can't hear another's story if I don't understand my story. Slowing down gives me chance to know and then to row from that. What's your story? enough for now.

The Way Made

There is such a peace in knowing that God does make a way. When you can realize that alone, you can rest. enough for now.

Today, Me

Well, I’ve already passed another year. I marvel as the sum total of all my life is rolled up into this day and me. Who I am. What Godhas. How I listen. What I do. This day, each new day and me. How I approach each new day is the expression of who I am. 

Not just me alone, but also. This is your new day and how you approach this day says alotabout who you are. Sure,you will have fearful moments, don’t let them keep you. Your will have angry moments, don’t let them destroy you. There is so much more to you. Enjoy today. enough for now.

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Don't Miss It

Why do we speed ahead to make plans on plans? When we do that we miss the gift of the day, the moment.  We can't enjoy the journey because we are too focused on the short cut to the destination. Take this day in. Enjoy what is yours this day. enough for now.

Sunday, October 7, 2018

New Day

Today is your new day. Treat it like a gift. It is. Unwrap it slowly as you take in the joy of the gift itself. The thought that comes behind the gift. That God has given this precious present to you.enough for now.

Sunday, September 30, 2018


I am marveling at what God does when I get still. When I stand. I don’t need to work it out, but watch what happens when he is brought in on any matter. Today, just stand. Stand on his word, stand on his love for you, stand with his peace. Stand and watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Stay Strong

Isn't odd that a change in atmosphere can mess up your health? Maybe not odd, but in a similar way a change in community can mess up your spiritual health. Too often we don't think about that. We go about our way trying to pray, trying to be compassionate to others, trying to love one another and it happens. We find ourselves in a different community - of believers. But this community does not have the same values, and if we are not strong, we can slide into their habits. Oh my goodness. What can we do?

Stop, get direction- from Holy Spirit. Stay prayerful, and become the strength, the one who draws others to God and not the one who draws other to self. Stay strong in following Holy Spirit's guide. enough for now.

Too Hard Not To

As I was finishing my sermon on forgiveness, this song by Tina Campbell came on-“Too Hard Not To.” I encourage you to listen to it today. You think it’s too hard to forgive, but it’s too hard not to forgive. Oh how true. That is not what God has for you. We forgive as we are forgiven. We forgive and are forgiven. Let that permeate your spirit. enough for now.

Living in the App

We have been relegated to living an abbreviated life- living in the app. Apps are our quick source, quick fix; but when we really need more, we have to go to the website. And on the website we have so much more available to us than what we have on the app.

What does it mean? We have used a day of worship as the day we get it all done. . . living in the app. but in order to receive the fullness of life that is promised we have to check in with the source. We have to walk getting all that is offered, and not just by checking in one day a week. Holy Spirit guides us along the way and cannot be fully received in the app- in an abbreviated life. Stay connected. There will be times that you will use the app, but stay with the source and you can live a more complete life. enough for now.

Sunday, September 9, 2018

Don’t Let It

You are more than you know. You can make it. Find your joy in your peace. Get your peace from God. When you do that, nothing can stop you. Not even you -when you let Holy Spirit guide you. Yes, your life is yours to live fully without the negativity of “it.” 

Don’t let your “It” deter you from what God has for you. There will be down times just as there will be up times. Make sure you are clear that the down times are not in your mind only. You are more than you know. You are loved more than you know. Your life has meaning. Live it to the fullest following Holy Spirit’s guide. Watch what God is doing in your life, and celebrate! enough for now.

Do It

Distraction will sneak up- just like that. You cannot let it lull you into where you do not want to be. Stay focused, stay secure in what you are trying to accomplish, and do it. enough for now.

What Brings Joy?

I talked with my grandson on his twentieth birthday. What brings me joy? That I have three grandsons who are doing well and safe. That the middle one is twenty today. That I have been a part of nurturing him and watching him grow. That I have a loving son who loves his sons and who loves me.  What brings me joy? That my younger sister celebrated her birthday day before yesterday and that she is well and now on a trip for her job. Family brings me joy. Friends bring me joy. Talking and laughing, crying and supporting them brings me joy. The love God has for me brings me peace, and out of that peace I can enjoy those th8nhsntat bring me joy.

What brings joy to you? Write it down. Look at how it can spread. I only wrote a little of mine. Believe me- there is more. There is more for you also. Go ahead get started. enough for now.

Joy in Living

I was so encouraged and inspired by a conversation with a close friend this morning. Life is indeed what we make it. We can have joy - true joy, regardless of whatever circumstance we find ourselves. That joy emanates from the peace we can have. That peace comes from God. Our lives are meant to be joyous - not necessarily happy all the time. But a real peace and a deep joy. With that, all seasons of life can be smoothly experienced.

What season are you in? Find the real joy of the season and experience every bit of what God has for you. enough for now.

Sunday, September 2, 2018

See the New Day

See this day. No, not as ‘just another day’, but a day of great expectations. A new day in your journey. A day to see, hear, and do marvelous things. See this day as your gift and unwrap it a little at a time. Don’t just pull the wrapping off. Treasure how it has been wrapped for you- for this moment. Enjoy all tatthis day has for you. enough for now.

Wait for It

This has been a time of revealing. Pieces have been falling into place. Concerns have been faded away. How? Only because of the the wait. Only because of the pause and the wait. Only because of listening, pausing, waiting to hear what God is saying. There is so much going on that we cannot think it all out. The only way to move through it is to listen, pause, wait. There is so much to be had in the waiting- so much revealing. Go ahead- wait for it. Watch for what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Accept It

Walking through another door. Turning another corner. Seeing the path. Watching what God is doing. Celebrating each new day in life. This is your day. Accept your life, accept the joy of your life. enough for now.

Celebration part two

It seem like a long day; but then that day long ago was a long day as I awaited the birth of my only child.  This is my celebration, part two. Did you celebrate earlier? Celebrate your life now. Celebrate the life of one you love now. Call, hug, remember the happy times. enough for now.


Today is my son’s birthday. I talked to him, couldn’t see him to hug him today because we are in different countries. It feels good that I can talk to him. Enjoy this day talking with someone you love, you care about about.  Celebrate life today! enough for now.

Why do we worrry about what we cannot fix? Why do we worry about what others are doin? What do we worry that we are not were we think we should be? Why do we worry? Worry takes up so much energy, it takes up too much space in our minds, our hearts. It causes us to believe that we are in control. We are not, it is when we realize who really has control, then we can let go of worry. 

Yeah, no, I’m not talking about those who given control of their lives to another person, place, or thing. That’s a loss of control. But when we release our control to God- seriously- we recognize that our life is less hectic, more peaceful, even through rough places. No, it does not mean to wander about zombie like- not thinking, but it means to realize that with God, all things are possible and he knows our journey. 

We worry because we don’t know the journey, and we try to find our way, but many times we get lost. With Holy Spirit guiding, we are never lost, although we sometimes stray from the path. What are you worried about? Many times it never happens. Look at how you could have used that time to thank God. That’s really a better use of time. What do you need to release? enough for now.

In Spite Of

In spite of all odds . . . you are still loved. In spite of all odds. . . you are more than you think. . . In spite of all odds. . . you are not alone.  In spite of all the crazy things you have done, the times you were not sure, the places you should not have gone, in spite of it all you are loved. Sometimes it feels like you are all alone and there are times that you feel no help is near; all because of what you have done. Oh but not true. Don't fret. Don't fear. Breathe and watch what God is doing in your life.  enough for now.

Giving God Thanks

“Giving God Thanks” is a phrase I hear often here. There are so many ways to give thanks. Yes with your lips. Speak it out loud. Yes with your actions. The way you treat others. Yes with your walk. The way you guide others. Yes with your heart. The way you love on God. Psalm 118 is one of many that can get you started. 

I know, sometimes you actually think you have noting to be thankful for. Hmm. You are reading this. You have technology,you can see, you can read, you are alive. “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Be in this moment with God and give thanks. enough for now.

Chose Wisely

There are times that our routine may get interrupted. You have options, to go with the flow or resist. Of course, it depends on the interruption. The stress breaker is that you don't always have to resist, and you don't always have to go with the flow. Chose your battles wisely. You will have battles, you will have choices to make. Weigh the interruption by checking with Holy Spirit, and then follow accordingly.  It will remove quite a bit of stress. enough for now.

When the Mess Needs a Press

Sometimes whatever you do does not appear to work for others. Be clear who you are working for. Sometimes others do not know you or what you are to do. And yes, at those times things can be rough for you. It can feel very messy, because they don’t know like you know. Flip it around, and you don’t know like they know. At that time it is a mess. Don’t try to explain. Be still and hear from Holy Spirit on your way. In your being still, you press into what God has for you. In your pressing you get clarity. In your pressing you get peace. Press . . . And watch what God is doing. enough for now.

That was a Rough

How many times have you survived a great issue, a great trial; yet while you were in it you only felt how hard it was?  You know, those times when you didn’t know if you would survive - yet you had survived trials before? Oh how rough it was, how frightening it was, how rough. And even in those times you felt you were not the conqueror you are? But you are more than a conqueror.  

This is a quote from God Calling: “You wonder sometimes why you are permitted to make when you sought so trust do my will in the matter. To that I say it was no mistake . . .All your lessons cannot be learned without difficulty, and this was needed to teach you a lessson. Not to him who walks on, with no obstacles in his way, but to him that overcometh is the promise given.”

Let that permeate you, your space today. And recognize you are more than a conqueror -even in the rough.  Enough for now.

Distractions- No

How easy it is to get distracted. You can be working on one thing and then find yourself thinking about something totally different. There are times that these changes can be helpful- at that time try to write a note about what it is and get back to the task at hand. Most of the time, these distractions keep you from seeing, or handling something that needs to be handled.

Distractions are easy, sometimes our tasks are harder; which makes the distractions more inviting. But don't lose sight of the real. Distractions will cause you not to hear clearly what you are to do. Get still, and check with Holy Spirit on what is real. The goal is to not let distractions cause you from missing what God is doing in that moment. Settle in and listen. Say no and get back to hearing. enough for now.

No Fear

“Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” This pericope comes right after the healing of the woman  with the issue of blood for twelve years. The story is found in Luke 8:49-56.  In the process of Jairus asking for healing for his twelve year old daughter -she died. But Jesus spoke healing words - “Don’t be afraid- just believe, and she will be healed.” 

Don’t be afraid - just believe. Jesus’ name alone brings healing, calms fears, and brings the enemy to his knees. Whatever you face - don’t be afraid just believe, and you will be healed. Don’t be afraid- just believe. No fear- believe. enough for now.

Saturday, July 21, 2018


Praise. . . Praise . . . Praise. Give thanks today for who you are and what you have. Give thanks because you should. Give thanks for your safety. Give thanks for  _____________. You fill in the blank. Don't do another thing today before you give thanks, before you praise God. enough for now.

Take the Time

How hard is it for you to get still, and listen? I mean quiet your mind and listen. Shut down all thoughts and listen. How hard is that? You can - you should for your well being. Listen to what God is saying. Nothing is lost by taking that time. You didn’t miss anything. Take small steps, but take them toward your peace. Go ahead, try. enough for now.

Walking in the Sun

Chakka Kahn sang long ago, "Walking in the Sun," and i agree that is how sometimes we feel. We have been walking for so long in the dark that "even a blind man can tell when he's walking in the sun." Yet, the sun feels unfamiliar and so we try to work backwards to what we know - the dark.  But take time today to bask in the sun because of the Son. enough for now.

Live Fully, or Fully Lose

I''m thinking about things that are real.  Things that really matter.  Things that cause us to grow mentally, spiritually, healthily.  I think we spend too much time thinking about things that are not real. Worrying about tomorrow is not real. Tomorrow will come.

Today is real. Today is what we have. This present moment is what we have. We can live fully in the present moment or fully lose the moment. Too many precious moments have been lost.  Too many moments have been lost through needless worry, fear, doubt.  Yes, we waste a lot of time right there. When we are listening to Holy Spirit's guide . . . When we are trusting God's promises . . .  When we are loving on Jesus, we can be in that present moment with him.  In that moment there is nor fear, no doubt, no worry, just peace.  Let's just pause there.

Are you missing the present moment?  Breathe. Breathe out whatever keeps you from being in that moment Breath in peace. Breathe out and in until you can recognize the peace of that moment. You see, then you can get back to it just like that. When you are in that moment, you want more of that moment. It's your time. Think about what is real. Live fully, or fully lose. enough for now.

RTS Advanced Certificate Program

For those who want seminary training, but do not have the time not the funds for a traditional site, this is for you. This Advanced Certificate Program offers ten classes of eight weeks each. Each class is 2-2.5 hours once a week, and taken online via Skype. This program, taught by seminary professors, can be finished in 18 months.

Presently there are three courses of study: Spiritual Formation, Biblical Studies, and Formational Prayer (a dual course). Each course is paid in U.S. funds. The next classes of Prayer and Doctrine of Holy Spirit start July 31. Registration opens July 16. For more information see Or contact me here.

Pull, or Push

What's pulling you? What's pulling you toward places you don't want to be? Sometimes the pull becomes a deadly push to take you down. . . Pushing and pulling you right into what is not good for you. And you feel trapped, with no way out. Stuck. No hope.  What's causing you to be in situations that you can't win? Why have you become complacent in those places? There is hope. You are stronger than that. You are stronger than what you think. There is a way out. All is not lost.

You see, Holy Spirit gently guides you, around situations, over trouble, and sometimes through pain. Yes, sometimes through, but going through anything with Holy Spirit's guidance is so much better than alone. No more being pushed and pulled, but now be gently guided, and see what peace it brings. enough for now.

Stand, Walk, Rest

There is a song we used to sing when I was young, “Standing on the Promises of God.” And I knew that to be so true when I was young. Then I had to relearn it after I became an adult. On this journey you must have something to stand on, or you will fall. You will fall for so many of Satan’s schemes. You will fall because of your own wounding. You must have something to stand on. Stand on God’s promises.

When you are clear of what your stand on- then walk assured that you are not alone. Walk assured that your path is clear as you follow Holy Spirit’s guidance. It makes the way so much easier. It cuts down on so much turmoil. 

And rest in the love of Jesus. Rest from the inner inner turmoil. Rest when you need to do so. Nothing is done all at once. Rest knowing that this journey is indeed a great adventure. Examine each turn for what God has for you. There will be times of standing, of walking, of resting. Which one are you in now? Know what you are standing on. Knowing who you are walking with. Know who gives you rest. Enough for now.

Face It

Do you know where your freedom lies? In knowing who you are. You know who you are when you face yourself- your good and your bad. Come on, we all have good and bad. We are not perfect. The challenge is to strengthen the good and lessen the bad. But not even that is our freedom, it is wrapped up in it. You see, facing self and recognizing who you are- and then whose you are frees you. You really can walk in a new light. You really can see things differently.

This journey is about you and your growth. And then about how your growth impacts others. enough for now.

The Darkest Hour

Sometimes it gets harder before it gets easier. There are places that I walk on the mountain and at those places I have to pause, get my breath and keep on. And then my walk gets a tad easier. My parents used to tell my sister and me, "the darkest hour is just before dawn."

I know that to be true.  Benn through some dark places. Gone through some lonely times. Yet, God has kept me in spite of me. Trust me, "the darkest hour is just before dawn." Your dawn is coming.  If you can hold on - if you can hold on. The dark will subside. Your change will come. Don't let go. Hold on. You will survive. enough for now.

There should be a time and place for quiet contemplation. When you find yourself there- welcome it. Just be still. When it is done, you may need to journal what you received, felt, or pondered. Shh! quiet now. enough for now.

Wait On the Lifting

How many times do you find yourself walking, asking, wondering? Walking around feeling alone? Asking why can't it be better? Wondering when change will come? It happens. It happens to all of us at some point. But when it happens -pause . . . and look back. Look back to when it happened before and how you made it out. You did make it out.

For some reason, when we get in that state we feel there is no way out. And then our own wounding can add to that feeling. We can become isolated by our thoughts and can't see. It is at those times when we need to hear clearly guidance from Holy Spirit. We need to grieve, we need to lament. Yes, we need to get the hurt out. It is real. We need to listen to what God is saying. And then there is a lifting. There is a renewal in our minds and hearts if we allow it.  It will pass.

Yes, things may not be as they once were. But then it may be time for a change. This may be your new season. And you may miss what is yours in this new season because you are trying to hold on to the former season. You will make it. You will because you are more than a conqueror. Pause, and remember who you are and whose you are. Then listen, watch, wait for what it yours in this new season. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Your morning is coming. You will make it. Wait on the lifting. enough for now.

This Moment

As I contemplate the peace, the quiet, I marvel at how it permeates this space. And I considered what would be the event that takes this peace. That is where I went wrong. Not to consider what will be, but to take in what is. . . to be in the present moment with God.

Be still, and know that he is God. Wait and be in the peace- the present moment with him enough for now.

Slow Down

Slow down! I had to tell myself to do just that. You see, I recognized that I was racing into an area where God did not clear me to go.

There are times that we rush ahead toward a good thing, but we are not clear if that good thing is fo us. So, we have to slow down. Where are you? Do you need to slow down? enough for now.

New Day of Learning

Today is a new day. I learned more about life yesterday than the day before. But that is how is should be. We should learn each day. What will you learn? Will it be about others? will it be about yourself? Will it be a new way of doing things? At the end of this day check to see what you learned. enough for now.

Sunday, June 24, 2018


I marvel at milestones in our lives. Yesterday my sister and brother-in-love celebrated 45 years of marriage. A milestone. A few weeks ago, my son celebrated the close of school. A milestone. A few weeks ago, one grandson celebrated celebrate graduation from high school. A milestone.
A few weeks ago, I recognized a weakness that had laid dormant and crept up. No, it's not a milestone; but if I can grow from that weakness, strengthened by the realization of what it really is- it will be a milestone. If I can remember to give thanks for my crossing over troubled waters that did not engulf me- it will be a milestone.

Celebrate life itself, as each new day is a milestone. Yes, some may be more memorable than others, but all are in the growing of you. All are in the path on your journey. Celebrate! enough for now.

No More Waste

I think sometimes we spend wasted energy trying to understand people who, more than likely, don't understand themselves.  We wonder how can they be so rude, so ugly, so irresponsible, so bullish. But if we are to focus on who we are and how God has made us, then we really don't have time to focus on anyone's foolishness. This life is precious and we really should nor miss what God is doing in our life.

The truth is that God also made them and loves them. That's a hard one- isn't it? He sees where the hurt is, ours and theirs. And he wants us to live fully- without the hurt.

So how do we not waste our energy? We focus on what Holy Spirit is directing for us. We seek help for our woundings. Yes, we pray that they seek help. But we focus on self in order to receive our healing. And then we can breathe clearer. enough for now.

To Reality

To reality. To realization. To seeing things a different way- a more revealing way. The challenge is to recognize and then to realize that the journey is about you; and you growing into more of who you really are.

Long ago I realized that, "Growth hurts." It still does. It is necessary.  The thing about it - is with Holy Spirit guiding, it doesn't hurt as much. It becomes more of an ache and not a pain. An ache from using muscles that have not been used in a while. Go ahead, listen and go with it. This is about you. And 'that' that is about you - develops inward because of the upward and permeates outward. Then it becomes not about you but about community. About loving one another. That is the present reality. enough for now.

A Shift

Peace. What takes your peace? Why? What can you do to maintain? Shift your focus from the peace stealer to to Peace Maker. Stop. Get quiet. Now listen. enough for now.

Tuesday, June 12, 2018


What happens when you recognize that a term of endearment for you is repulsive to another? That can be quite disturbing. But you make a change. If it means your peace, then walk in it. Walk in your peace. Walking in peace brings your joy. Stay there in your peace and watch what happens. enough for now.

Wait Happens

I am waiting on a plane that has been delayed twice. I’m thankful that I am not making a connecting flight. BUT - I have come to understand that wait happens and really, it is okay. We get bent all out of shape when things don’t move when we want them to move. BUT- we must wait sometimes.

I offer that we shift our focus from what we are waiting on. If we shift from whatever it is to what God is doing, then we can handle the wait. And anxiety ceases. See what is in the wait for you. There may be something grander or more peaceful, or more revealing in the wait. 

Watch what is for you in the wait. enough for now.

God Is

Oh listen, as you spend time with Psalm 46. Rest on verses one and two. You see you must know that God is our refuge and strength. You must know that for this journey. Read all the way through, pausing again on verse eight. Ohh, come and see what the Lord has done. When we were, we used to say, Come and see what the Lord done done. When you finish the Psalm, go back to verse ten - and "Be still, and know that He is God."

Take your time with this. He is God is spite of the foolishness of the world. He is God in spite of the enemy whispering otherwise. Kate Spade, Anthony Bordain, in the past week. Robin Williams and so many others in the past. Fame doesn't cut it. Depression knows no friends. You see, communication in community is so important. We must be connected. We must be able to share with someone where we are.

Don't ever let anything make you believe that you must keep silent because of your mental health. It is not a stigma. This is your life and you are to live it richer than you know. This has nothing to do with money, success in society, but in running your race to the fullest with Holy Spirit guiding. I promise there is so much more. Please get help.

Call somebody. Call me. Call God- he is our all in all. "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." enough for now.

A Good Day

Each day is your new possibility! Arise thanking God for what he has in store. At the end of the day thank him for what the day revealed. Learn something about yourself. And then rest assured that God does indeed have it. Today is a good day. enough for now.

Friday, June 1, 2018

Do Not. . .

Do not be dismayed, disturbed, or distracted. Be still and watch. Do not let let fear, anxiety, confusion take over. Watch and listen. Do not let anyone deter you from what God has designed for you. Listen and follow. Do not be what you are not created to be. Recognize the awesome person you are. You can by watching, listening, following. By watching what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018


You are special. Did you know that? You were created for a purpose. You are one blessed by God. Just let that permeate your spirit.

You- special one - deserves to be celebrated. There are those who want to celebrate you and love on you. Let them. God celebrates you. Let God celebrate you. This is not about being vain or proud; but to recognize that God has blessed special 'you', and we celebrate that. Your first acceptance of our celebration is to learn to love self.  Learn to love that God so loves you. Learn to feel the manifestation of that love everyday. When you do that, you will know how much you are loved and celebrated. Then you can accept the special 'you' that God created. enough for now.

Your Present

We press toward the mark of the high calling in Christ. We forget the past. We forget our trials and sins, in order to handle today. We ask for forgiveness for yesterday and begin anew today. Too many people are so weighed down with what happened yesterday that they miss the joy of today.

We can't get so caught up in yesterday that we have no time for today.  we can't rush ahead toward tomorrow because today affects tomorrow. Today is all we have. Today is our present. Accept it as a gift, opening it carefully. and then give thanks for it. Today is your present. enough for now.

It Starts with You

I was listening to the news that flood waters had overtaken Ellicott City, Maryland again. And I think how devastating it is. But so are hurricane rains around the world. So are tsunamis around the world. It is so interesting that it appears to make sense only when it involves us. Why is that? We are involved with one another because we are all in this together.  I think if we had more compassion for others, then we could realize more compassion back.

It all starts with us, wherever we are. We start the caring where we are and let it spread outward. We start the loving one another where we are and let it flow out. That brings peace. Peace is what we all need to handle the daily stresses.

I started with one thing just to get to the main thing - loving one another. Today it starts with you. Love yourself, love another, love on others. Watch what God does with the love. enough for now.

What Do You See?

Today I see clearer than I did yesterday. That is good. What about you? What do you see? What do you realize today that you did not yesterday? Be still. enough for now.

Try Giving

I know it's hard to give when you think you h ave nothing to give, or when you need so much. But- you do have something to give. It is a part of your nature a a creation of a loving giving God. Hmm Don't want to give? Then check where your signals are coming from as it is not of God. If the signals are not from God, there will be no peace.

Loving and giving out of a loving relationship with God is all apart of who you are. You can start small. Try. Give a smile. Give a hug. Help someone. Listen to someone. There are so many ways. enough for now.

Thursday, May 24, 2018


Give. Give out of your gifts. Out of the love you have been given- given. Out of the supply you have received -give. Out of the wisdom you have gained- give. That what your gifts are for. Give - share with another - what has been shared with you. Give and watch what happens. enough for now.

Presence and Prayer

There are those who are grieving, others are redoing plans, still others are wondering "what is next?" And to say life goes on is too trite. You see - even in the midst of whatever is going on - life is happening. We cannot 'happen' with life unless we follow our guide- Holy Spirit. and actually - whatever you are going through is indeed life. 

Celebrate your life. Yes, help others to celebrate their lives. Walk with those who are going through trials, pain, grief. Walk in presence and prayer. My pastor, F.G. Sampson, long ago taught me, "Presence is ministry." Prayer too is ministry. Your life demands your listening to guidance. Listen, and follow. enough for now.

Who Is In Control?

Don't you love how a night of peaceful sleep results in a morning or joy? Where does the peace come from? By settling down and giving your will to God. Yeah, that's that control piece that you don't want to give up.

But you have to wonder why do you think you need to be in control? Go ahead, ponder on that today. Another idea to ponder is "Who have you given control to?" Quite possibly, you have given control to another and that is really not good. No human has your best interest at heart- not even you. because you really don't know what's best for you. You really don't know God's plan for your life; which is why you need to give him control. Let that permeate your mind and your heart this week. enough for now.

Sunday, May 20, 2018

Junk Out, Joy In

Joyful. Joyful involves you. Joy comes from within. No one is responsible for your joy- you are. That happens through letting strange situations go that really are not about you. That mess will wear you down. Breathe out the silly, the strange, the anxiety, the anger,- breathe out anything that is not of God. You have the right to do so. Breathe in peace, joy, love - you get in? Those things that are of God. Breathe out- speaking one thing, Breathe in speaking. That will bring you to a more balanced place in order to hear, to gain perspective, to have joy and peace. Go ahead, try it all week, and watch what happens. enough for now.

Joy after the Night

We move through seasons. Seasons with those in our lives. Seasons of new ones in our lives Seasons of hurt, seasons of pain. Seasons of quiet. Seasons of movement. Whatever the season brings, hold on.  Yeah, hold on.

Sometimes you have to endure the tears of the night to know the joy in the morning. You really can if you recognize the peace in the tears. Too many times we cry, "Lord back the night."No one wants to go through hurt, pain, the loss. But it is is the night that you can be held through your pain, your hurt, your anxiety. And when you know you are not alone, when you know . . .; then you can expect the joy. to come. Sometimes you can't better know the joy until you've gone through the night. Spend time with Psalm 30:5.  Spend time listening to God. enough for now.

The Changing Power of Prayer

I read an interesting statement in my devotional, "Prayer changes all." This - right here. We are so accustomed to "Prayer changes things," but can you see how restricting that is? That 'prayer changes all' opens us up to grand possibilities. The "all" encompasses everything! Can you see how powerful that is? It changes all, including you; which is the biggest piece.

Okay that really is enough for now. Let that permeate your being today. Move it from your mind to your heart. Live in it, walk in it, and watch what God is doing. enough for now.

This Day

This day. This is your day. Accept it with gratitude, the highs and the lows. Don't anticipate, just expect new things, new wonders, new marvels. This day is yours. enough for now.

Sunday, May 13, 2018


Celebrate you and the life you have. You are so much more and you have so much more ability than you know. We all do. Celebrate that you have a new chance today to start agin. To do things different. To leave yesterday behind. Celebrate that you are here because of  a mother. And if you have a mothe who loves, who loved you- celebrate that also. If you had a mother who was deeply wounded- celebrate that you are still here. Celebrate that Holy Spirit has guided you, God has kept you, and Jesus loves you. Celebrate you. enough for now.

Don't Miss the Question

There at the pool of Bethesda a man lame for thirty-eight years laid waiting to get into the water. (John 5) Jesus asked him, "Do you want to get well?" He answered that he had no one to help him into the water when the water is stirred. Hmm. Jesus offered healing, the man gave excuses.

But isn't that like us? We are presented with opportunity after opportunity to heal and we give excuses on why we can't get healed. The healing is not in your control- accepting and walking in it is. Don't miss the opportunity, don't miss the question. enough for now.

Thursday, May 10, 2018

Watch the Progression

Don't you just love how God does what God does? Watch the progression. The first two sentences in "God Calling" set it up: "All agitation is destructive of good. All calm is constructive of good, and at the same time destructive of evil."  Now my thought to that is to stay calm and evil around me will be destroyed. There really is so much there.

So the source of an agitation is being destroyed inwardly, and does not understand the need for help. 
What is my response? Stay calm. All is well. Hold that thought.

Then Psalm 119:154 was another part of my devotional today. "Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise." Watch the progression.

And then I opened my email before I opened the blog, which was not my usual. I had a beautiful collage of me from my Israel trip from a mentee. Hmmm. That loving gesture brought tears to my eyes.  And it was right now. Right now. All is well. Watch the progression.

I would say that was the icing on the cake - but no. With God there is no limit. There is always more. More settling into peace. More relieving of stress. More resting in calm. Watch today, and rest in shalom. enough for now.

Walk in It

In this your season of healing, learn to rest in what Holy Spirit guides. Learn to trust in what you hear from Holy Spirit. This is your season of release, of rejuvenation,  of recognition of who you are, your value, your worth. Walk in it, wait in it, rest in it. Don't let anyone, not even yourself deter you from this time. enough for now.

Your Season

How many times do we let others control us by their actions, words, or their deeds? Yes, I said 'we'. It happens so quickly and the scary part is that we allow it. Yes we do. No one takes control, we give it. Bullying can come in very subtle ways, still manipulative, still lying.

The sad part is that the bully has their own unresolved issues, their own woundness, and they have no clue of what to do or how to be healed. Healing is needed for them. And healing is needed for you in order to progress toward what God has for you in this season.

Your life is about you and what God has for you. Yes, you move in and out of community. You don't give anyone control of you.  Bullies don't know your season. They don't know what God has for you. And clearly they are not operating in what God has for them. But that will be worked out between them and God. Stand firm and strong and watch God. You move in and out of seasons. What season are you in?

God does not change, is not flaky, does not lie, does not leave you, nor forsake you. That is real and you can hold on to that. When you recognize that, when you know it in your heart; then you can rest in what God is doing in your life. Then you can move toward releasing your hurt, your anger, your guilt, your unforgiveness. This is your season for healing. enough for now.

Sunday, May 6, 2018


Sometimes we miss what God is doing because we are so stuck on what someone has done to us. You cannot stay stuck. Stuck does not go anywhere. Stuck hinders you and your growth, it blocks your blessings of peace. And it happens so quickly. Someone said something, someone did something and you replay the scene over and over and over- stuck. And then you tell someone, who tells someone - stuck. 

When those moments happen, give them right then to God through lamenting or grieving. Let it go. It is for your healing. Not for anything else. You can’t control anyone, but you can control your own feelings. It doesn’t matter why it happened, that it happened. It happened, and that’s what the perpetrator has to deal with. 

You are growing toward life- the fullness of life. You cannot receive the fullness if you are full of mess of what others have done. Can you see that?  I love the song in Frozen, “Let it go.” We need to let stuff go in order to rise to who we are. Tired of being stuck? Then get unstuck. Let’s do this. enough for now.

Friday, May 4, 2018

Show Time

Lights! Camera! Action! It's show time. Time to show who you are. Time to show what God has done. It's time. Time to walk renewed, rejuvenated, refresh in God's word and listening to Holy Spirit. Show them who you are.  Show them what you are about. Don't be afraid, God did not give you a spirit of fear. Walk in who you are, and in whose you are. enough for now.

New Direction

Direction. Today I received direction for the new leg of my journey. I am again excited as it is akin to the woman with the little oil in her house. I already have what I need.

What about you? What do you think you need? What do you have? You already have what you need to grow, to soar. What are your gifts? Your talents? Stop. Think. Listen. Write them down and give them to God. And listen as Holy Spirit directs you. Soar. enough for now.

This Mornng

This morning I woke up. Yes, I wake up every morning- but this morning. This morning I awaken with new revelations of who I am. Yes, I know who I am - but this morning I was renewed and encouraged. This morning things just fell into place. Yes, they have fallen into place many times before - but this morning. This morning I see clearer, from a different level with a different view.

So what do I do with this? Get still and watch, wait, and listen. Oh, that's how I got to this place - this morning. I went to sleep watching for and waiting on. Not on mankind, but on God. 

What you do with this? Get still, watch what God is doing, wait on his doing, and listen for his voice. And when you rest in that, you can awaken renewed, refreshed, with resolve, seeing a new way. Go ahead, make tomorrow your new morning by resting in God's peace today, tonight. enough for now.

Did I Really?

"I had to. . ." How many times have you used that term? How many times have you found yourself justifying your actions- even if you are justifying to yourself. It is used to explain away ill gotten advice, even sometimes advice from self based on incorrect or incomplete information. It happens. Unfortunately, we continue along the same lines with the ill gotten advice not knowing how to make it right, but answer, "I had to." "I had to do what I had to do."

This morning, after praying about a client and his breakthrough, the Lord showed me that too often we are stuck in bad decisions, with bad directions, from bad advice, and are afraid to move out, move away, because of lost time, of losing face. But when we can recognize what it really is, then we can move immediately. . . straightway. . .without haste.

How? By receiving right direction, by asking Holy Spirit, "which way?"  And then . . .  wait on it . . . waiting for right direction, and following. Yes, it is never what you think, no, it is not the way you choose, but it it the true way for you. And there is no need for justification. Go ahead, try it- "which way?" And when you get right direction, follow without worry about what others think. After all, they don't know your journey. enough for now.

Your Turns

The journey has so many turns and stops. Realize which stop is yours and what you are to learn. Be clear that you are not taking someone else’s turn. How can you do that? Listen to Holy Spirit. enough for now.

Friday, April 27, 2018

Walking in Authority

I think too often we miss the authority we have as believers. We have the right to say no to anything that gets us off course of what God has for us. Let that sink in. How do we get on course? By trading our will for God’s will. And then walking in that. Go ahead, try it today “Not my will, your will Lord.” enough for now.

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Not without Effort

“Once you are born of the Spirit, that is your Life’s breath. You must never doubt, never worry, but step by step, the way to freedom must be trodden. See that you walk it with Me. This mean no worry,no anxiety, but it does not mean no effort” (God Calling, April 24).  

I’m going set that right there. Stay with that. Let it permeate your mind, your heart, your spirit. “Not without effort.” enough for now.

The Joy

Our patient, gentle, loving obedience brings joy to God’s heart (God Calling). Wow, to obey him brings joy. To obey him brings us joy and peace. Want some peace? enough for now.

Run On

I just watched on fb a little girl running in a race. She was not in the starting group. She was one of the smaller ones. But she passed everyone and gained an incredible lead. She never looked back, nor to the side. 

What can we get from this? This is your race and you run it alone, not against, alone. Run to the best of your ability. Run on. enough for now.

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

The Calm

The calm, the calm before the storm. We like calm, but many times it is just before a storm. I think if we cherish the peace over the calm, then when the storm happens we can hold on. Watch for what is happening today. Is it calm? Take care, a storm may be brewing. Do you have peace? Then you can weather any storm. Desire the peace. The peace in spite of any storm, any calamity, any dismay. The peace that comes from God. The peace will keep you in the storm. enough for now.  

Sunday, April 15, 2018

Hold On

Too often we are so busy trying to let go of crazy stuff that we forget to hold on to lessons learned. Hold on to what we have gotten from the experience. Hold on to our sanity coming out of crazy. Hold on to our peace in the midst of crazy. Hold on to what God says. How do we know what to hold on to? Listen to Holy Spirit. Follow the guide and watch what happens.enough for now.

Saturday, April 14, 2018

Store Up the Words

Store up the words. The words you read in the Word, “Your word I have hidden in my heart that I may not sin against you” (Ps. 119:11). The guidance you hear from Holy Spirit as our paraclete. The truth of God’s love, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life’s” (John 3:16). Store up the words.

Store them up for when you need the Truth of them. Words from your friends may be helpful-or hurtful, but God’s truth will sustain. enough for now.

The Steadiness of the Silence

I have been observing more the ways God moves in my quiet. God is always moving, be sure. There is something about watching what is happening. So many are afraid of the silence. But you really can hear more. Examine the fear to let it go, and then watch. Watch what is made so plain- in the silence. Feel the peace- in the silence. There is balance - if you are ready. enough for now.

Sunday, April 8, 2018


It has been a revealing week. I listened to a few of my clients and they recognized new strengths. I listened to friends and they had experienced new hurts. I watched family grow out of stuf an into newness. I listened to others and recognized where their particular hurts were. And though disappointments I recognized more of my strengths and my weaknesses. Oh its been a revealing week. 

Through it all, I learned to handle disappointments differently than I once did. That’s growth. I think if we were to get still, and listen as Holy Spirit reveals, then we can grow past pettiness, past frivolous - meaningless mess. You see, sometimes the mess is there only to distract us from the good that awaits. What what is revealed, what is uncovered; and then check with Holy Spirit what do with it. Take time this week. Be still, and hear what Holy Spirit is saying. enough for now.

Monday, April 2, 2018


It is hard to rest when so many things are twirling about demanding your time. But this rest is not like any other. It is a rest that holds you in perfect peace with God. It is a rest that lets the silly little disturbances roll off your back. It is a rest that can only be realized by being in the presence- by abiding in the love of Jesus. Go ahead, I know you need some rest. I know I do. Take your rest in him and watch what happens. enough for now.

Move Forward

How did you do in identifying the peace 'disrupters'? What did you see? When you recognize them, you can move beyond them. And then - looking back- you can see that whatever that distraction was- it was really no big deal. Okay, enough looking back. Be in this  present with God and watch what he is doing in your life. enough for  now.

Sunday, March 4, 2018

Peace Disrupters

Isn't it peculiar how we let little inconsistencies ruin our otherwise peaceful moments? You know, when others appear to cross boundaries for no reason at all? The question becomes not, 'Why it happens,' but 'Why does it bother me so'? And your peace has been disrupted, stolen.

It affects you because it is doing what it should- to distract you. Distract you from what? Oh, so many things, including your peace.  Let that sink in. Too often, we get so involved in wondering about what happened that we miss what we should be seeing.

Watch yourself today, and when 'peace disrupters' attempt to distract, take a deep breath. Breathe out distraction, breathe in peace. Continue until you feel restored. Blessings on your peaceful day. enough for now.

Friday, March 2, 2018

Why is it so hard?

Listen. Why is it so hard for us to listen? Here we say to listen to Holy Spirit and we don't even listen to one another. But let's don't get it twisted. I believe if we practice listening to Holy Spirit, we will become clearer in listening to others.  The goal is listening to Holy Spirit, anything else is extra. Oh but relationships will be strengthened in listening. Shh. Listen. enough for now.

Truth Triumphs

I had a realization yesterday on a quote. While the quote itself was encouraging, it was not accurate. And my resolve is to quote accuracy and check as best as I can. Truth triumphs. That is what we can hold close. When you recognize truth you have to let go of the untruth. You know the lie that masquerades as truth.

How many ideas have you held to as truth? And even after the truth is recognized, you still held to the lie? It's time to let go of the lies, truth triumphs. enough for now.

How do you Listen?

As I walked earlier, I listened. I heard the sounds of a community awakening. I heard the birds. I heard the workers. Oh but then I heard through what was happening around me and I heard the quiet. And in the quiet  I heard the voice. And I listened.

As I listened, I felt the peace; you know- that peace that surpasses all understanding. And I stayed there as long as I could, but then I broke the silence with my giggles of joy. I'm good. I have enough to hold me today. How do you listen? enough for now.

Sunday, February 25, 2018


There are times when you are not clear what to do - Stand. When you feel you must must do something but don’t know what -Stand. When you feel all alone, isolated - Stand. When you want to run with the eagles, but can’t even walk with chickens - Stand. Stand and wait. Wait on what you hear from Holy Spirit. Wait on your relief. wait on your peace. Times are coming when you just need to get still and stand. Be still now, and listen. enough for now.

Some Things

Today I recognized that some things I am to learn and some things I can forget. In all things I need help to know the difference. And so I continue along watching and listening. enough for now.

Come On

Our theme for 2018 is "I'm Coming Out: Encouraged and Empowered." I invite you to join us with that thought. What do you need to come out of? Ask Holy Spirit to guide and trust that if he showed you he will show you the way out - IF you are willing. The way out always leads to a fuller life. If you are willing.

Let's get out of junk that has kept us entrapped, in our mind, our heart, our wallet. It's on you. Ready? enough for now.

Saturday, February 17, 2018


Today. Today is your day. Today is the day to start anew. To leave yesterday there in yesterday. And not to look for tomorrow, but just ‘be’ in today. Today is the present- your present from God. Oh, unwrap it slowly, taking in all that is in store with each unfolding. Feel God’s presence with you as you marvel at this day.  Go ahead, enjoy this day. enough for now.

Now is the Time

Oh, I know that sometimes you don't think prayer works - but it does. And when we all pray the same way - on one accord, in God's will - wow great things happen. America experienced another school killing. Jamaica is experiencing senseless killings. But it doesn't stop there. No, so many other places are experiencing their own trials. The seasons are disturbed. People are confused, distressed, fearful.

So what can we do? Pray. Yes, pray. Pray for God's sovereign will in your life, in your area, and on earth. Pray for his peace. Pray that you are an instrument of his peace. Let's try God together, collectively as one in prayer. Hezekiah Walker's song says it, "I need you to survive."

Join me now, and then, join me every Monday morning at 8:00a. I doesn't matter the time zone, but that you are praying. Have your conversation but please add: God's sovereign will in your life, in your area, and on earth. For his peace. That you are an instrument of that peace. Together, let's watch the collective power of our fervent prayer. Prayer works. Now is the time to watch. Let's watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Your Best

Your best. At all times - your best. Anything less would not be properly representing who you are.Yes, you are more than you recognize. You are indeed special. So why wouldn't you act like it?there is more- more for you- more about you. After all, you are created in God's image. God don't make no junk. Get still and listen to Holy Spirit. And present your best. enough for now.

Can you hear it ? “Come.” To often we hear the word ‘come’ but it is come to the wrong stuff, come do the wrong thing.  And that come will take us toward our own pain and hurt. Yet if we listen, we hear the whisper ‘come’.  Come to the peace of God’s love. Come to the guidance of Holy Spirit. Come to the place where you are hearing and walking as Jesus modeled. Come into that place of growth and release of fear. Shhh. Do you hear it?
enough for now.

We make choices everyday. We choose to smile, we choose to speak. We choose to fear. Yes, we do. Since God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind; we choose to fear. That should be an awakening for someone right now. Make the choice not to fear, to trust what God is doing. It’s your choice. enough for now.

Holy Spirit Manageability

As I was walking up my mountain this morning I was moving as well as the day before. Now I had heard that on this walk it never gets easier, but you keep on going. I go for the achievement, for health benefits, for the comradely, because- in the long run- it feels good. Not sure why others do it.but this is my walk. Today I saw it in a different light. 

Art imitates life- this journey of life does not get easier - it becomes manageable. Some days are better than others; but in the end- it’s about what you get- the achievement, the love, the comradery, the growth. Oh my goodness, the lessons learned. They are for you, the experiences are yours. This is your journey. Take everyday as a new blessing from God. Each day really is manageable through whatever life offers. It is manageable with Holy Spirit guiding. Have no regrets, no fears. No regrets about yesterday, no fear for tomorrow. Live right now in the present with the Presence. Right now is a present to you- a gift from God. Open it expectingly and with gratitude. It’s yours. You will make it, you can enjoy your life. With Holy Spirit guiding you have Holy Spirit manageability and ‘all is well.’ See what this day brings. enough for now.

Where are the Seekers?

Where are the seekers? Where are the seekers? There are many things we seek. Where are the seekers? Not the seekers of truth; for too many times your truth is relative. I’m talking about the seekers of the Truth. Where are you? Well, I have a gift for you, and it’s found in Jeremiah 29:11-13. 
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." 

Study it, hold on to it. Walk with it this week and watch what God does with it. Seekers of the Truth are already free. Walk in your freedom. enough for now.

How Does It Feel?

How does it feel when you work hard to get a paper done? A project finished? Accomplish what appeared to be very difficult? How does it feel? There is a sense of exhaling that whatever it was- has been done- and done well. And you pause a moment to take it in? That’s good. You should enjoy that moment. There is something about walking with Holy Spirit that gives you more of those ‘done’ moments. And you find yourself thankful for the accomplishment, and excited about the next venture. That’s what the journey looks like. You just have to start. And then enjoy the journey. Think about today -count your blessings and the accomplishments for this day. Then get ready for the next. enough for now.

In God's Face

Do you know how difficult it can be to rest in the time of turmoil? It is. And that is understandable.  But too often we find ourselves panicked in the anticipation of the turmoil. How crazy is that? Look at the wasted energy.

Instead of facing your strife alone, get in God's face. Hear and watch. It is always so much better o ge in God's face before facing anything else. Let's try something different next time. 'Breathe out anxiety, breathe in peace.' Do that a few times until you feel the peace. You may breathe out and breathe in whatever Holy Spirit shows. At that point, listen for clear direction, and proceed. Not everything is your to take on. And then what is yours, you take on with the guidance of Holy Spirit.

Breathe. . . you'll feel better. . . you'll think clearer. Things are not always as they seem. enough for now.

Oh To Walk

I’ve been listening to songs that encourage me, that build me up, that keep me encouraged. I think some of them were to remember where I was and how God moved. That really is major. When you can have those kinds of moments you are renewed for the journey. You can let go of some things. You can breathe easier.  We need to breathe easier. We need to get our strength for the journey. We need to fix urlace in life and walk it out. Oh- to walk it out, knowing you are not walking alone. It is a joy to look back and see your progress along the journey. And then to walk encouraged now. 

What songs encourage you? Blessings of peace as you walk this day. enough for now.

Your Grand Adventure

Yes, it is difficult to stay focused when so many things are going on around you. Yet, you can do it. Keep in mind that this is an adventure with Holy Spirit guiding the way. God has already laid out the adventure, and Jesus has made your passage safe. When you begin to see this as an adventure - you will be less stressed as you know who has your back.

It is a grand adventure for you! Don't miss the journey. enough for now.

We Need the Rain

What is it about rain that causes us to shut down?  I think if we could recognize the cleansing of the rain, then we would not shun it but marvel at the renewing power.

What about the rain events in our lives? I have come to recognize them as cleansing also. After the storm, look around, see what has been cleared. Not all storms are bad. Get your umbrella, and watch what God is doing in the midst of the storm. We need the rain. enough for now.

No One Told Him

As I walked out of the mountain a large bird swooped past me out of a tree and to the ground. I stood stunned while watchng the bird as he joined the other chickens on the ground. Stunned - because I was told that chickens can’t fly. Yet, there it was, here in Jamaica, a chicken flying out of a tree. No one told him that he couldn’t fly. 

How many times are we limited in what we believe because someone has limited us? How many times have we been told what we can’t do because someone else couldn’t do it?  Oh I offer the sky is the limit. Where are you bound by what you thought? Go ahead, try it. I hear R. Kelly’s song, “I Believe I can Fly.” What do you believe? Oh you can do it. Believe it, after all no one told that chicken. enough for now.

Walk in the Light

I was walking up the mountain early this morning and I realized that I could not see. Now that made no sense as I was holding a flashlight; yet I was walking in the dark. Holy Spirit showed me – why walk in darkness when you have the light? 

What is your darkness? Where is the light? There is light. Walk in it. enough for now.

More Happy Thoughts

Life is what you make it. When you allow yourself to walk in peace, peace abounds. When you have happy thought, more happy thoughts come. I just talked to my youngest grandson and that made my evening. I love how God keeps showering with his love. Even when I may not feel as ‘up’ I know that I am still in God’s will and all is well.

Here’s the cool part - God showers you also. You have to see it, accept it, walk in it. Oh the joys of the journey. Don’t miss what Go has for you. Life is what you make it. enough for now.

Happy Thoughts

I think back to special times. Today my only niece was born a few years ago. I watched how she has grown into a beautiful loving young woman with her own family. That’s a happy thought today. What is your happy thought? Yes? Wait for it. Don’t let life take your happy thought away. When you can focus on happy thought, then you can rise above any craziness. Go ahead, try it. enough for now

Never Alone

Life comes at us fast. We learn how to maneuver around and through. It is so helpful when you have someone you can trust to witness your life. Yes, for many that is not possible; however, we have an advocate with Holy Spirit who guides and we are placed in the paths of those witnesses for a season.

You are never alone. Seasons change, but you are never alone. Henri Nouwen said it well in Mourning Into Dancing, that life is a trapeze act and we act the performers. God is the catcher and he releases us - and then catches us. Or something like that. The takeaway is to know that you are not alone, there are witnesses of your life for seasons, and Holy Spirit guides always. Never alone. enough for now.

As we move through this time, we move focused and ready to reach our goals, our dreams. We move out from those lies that held us bound. It's time- now to walk free of the junk. Walk free, walk upright, walk unbound, walk knowing who we are because of whose we are.

Walk now, walk watching what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

All is Well

All is Well. When you recognize that one piece of peace, then your journey will be much lighter. All is well. In the grand scheme of life, you are not as alone as you think you are. You are doing better than you think. The life you have is so much more. You take that life and walk it out as Holy Spirit guides. Ah, then you will be able to recognize the lightest of your journey. And you can see more and more that all is indeed well.

Look inside of you and let that good, that creativity, that compassion come to surface. Don't worry about others, watch what God is dong in your life. Yes, all is well. enough for now.
