Power Bigger Than A Big Rich Town
Mark 9:25-29 NIV When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He's dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted...

TELL MY BONES
A New Play with Music by Marilyn Jaye Lewis: TELL MY BONES - Based on the life of Helen LaFrance - “Sometimes something gets on my mind and I try to paint it. I just try to tell the truth. I guess I’m just good at it because it’s what I like to do. I just thank the Lord that I have tried. — Helen...
Can You See the Pharisees?
People who are unforgiving and full of pride often go to great lengths to make themselves look righteous and right to the outside world. I think 2nd Timothy chapter 3 verse 5 (KJVS) describes them best when it states: "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof..." When the Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of Beelzebul, the prince of...
The Word is a Weapon
We all know that words have impactful power inside of every syllable. Words can be infused with emotion, truth, revelation, wisdom, motivation and encapsulate spiritual understanding that we may digest it. Words can build and words can destroy. The Bible reinforces this truth many times within the scriptures. Here are just a few examples: Proverbs 18:21 NIV: The tongue has the power of life and death,...

You've Got That Flavor: You are Salt and Light!
Job 6:6 KJVS Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg? God wants our lives to have flavor!

It is All About the Heart part 2: Good vs. Evil
Can you define what good is? Can you define what evil is? Man has tried to define what is good based on what God's principles are. However, man has a difficult time identifying good and evil with consistency because he is unaware or ignorant of men's motives (even his own personal motives) that taint the truth. Motives that become selfish. Motives that serve the appetite of greed and lust. While trying to make the...
It is All About the Heart!
One of the most reassuring scriptures about the mission of Jesus Christ is found in Luke where He reads from the prophet Isaiah about himself. Luke 4:18-19 KJVS "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the...
Ask God Not Men
Ask God Not Men Featured
You don't have to keep asking men for what is rightfully yours. Instead, ask God for permission to pursue what is rightfully yours. If God gives you the okay, then be determined to secure what you know God has given you the rights to. There are times when God will require you to act courageously in your pursuit. He will be with you but you will still need to actually fight (whatever that act...
The Chains Are Broken
Some days you wake up and look at your life. In reflecting, you recall all the mistakes you've made and you just hate yourself. How could I have not seen that coming? How could I have been so easily fooled? Why did I allow this person to do such bad things to me over and over again? Where was my brain? Why did I waste so much time? Yet, it should be refreshing to...

This is a season where you will need to choose sides. This is not a season in time where you will be able to straddle the fence. The pressure is on everything that mankind puts its trust in as it relates to this natural world.

Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune's Words on Confidence in One Another
In her Last Will and Testament, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune states the following, "I LEAVE YOU THE CHALLENGE OF DEVELOPING CONFIDENCE IN ONE ANOTHER. As long as Negroes are hemmed into racial blocks by prejudice and pressure, it will be necessary for them to band together for economic betterment. Negro banks, insurance companies and other businesses are examples of successful, racial economic enterprises. These institutions were made possible by vision and mutual aid. Confidence...

You and What Army?
If you are a believer and a person of faith, you are never fighting alone. God confirms this throughout the scriptures. If we can come to a place of understanding that God is to be placed on the throne of our lives, that allows Him to give us direction. As we follow His guidance, He walks the road of life with us. He wants to mature us and make us battle ready as we walk through...
Who Are You....Really? What Are You Becoming?
I listen to a lot of different music but mostly what folks would say falls into the Gospel and Hip Hop space.

Power of Protests | Curfew Ended Early and Changes Implemented
Dru Story News - June 8, 2020 - In New York City, due to overwhelming pressure and protests deliberately lasting well past the 8 pm curfew, the Mayor listened, ended the curfew after Saturday night and many changes were made. This is an example of the power of the people forcing positive changes that sitting politicians may never make unless it is demanded. For the time being, this is a win for NYC protestors that...

How Much Loss Must We Experience Before We Change
1 Samuel 15:22 (Amplified) Samuel said, "Has the Lord as great a delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams." You can give sacrificially of your gifts, time, talent and money to the advancement of God's Kingdom.

The Stewards, The Owner & The Blessings
Stewardship is something most folks understand. Yet, God gave me some thoughts for the purpose of clarity today. I believe it was for me to write it down for myself and share it as a reminder of the perspective and posture we should have with money and possessions. He wants us to practice God-centered stewardship more effectively (that includes me). I was reading a scripture I've...

Having A Willing Heart Is More Important Than Availability
All of our words and actions start as thoughts. Thoughts originate in our hearts. If we want to have hearts that release the right thoughts into our minds and spirits, we need to care for and do regular checkups on our hearts. The heart is what makes us strive after righteousness and justice no matter the pain or cost. When we do something out of convenience, it often has no cost. Doing the right...

Do You See What I See
When you look in the mirror you see the most valuable thing that God has ever created; that is how God sees you. God's love for us is so deep and so rich that I am not sure we can comprehend it to its full measure. So many days we go out into the world feeling unloved, unappreciated and unfulfilled. Many days that is all we seem...

Slow Down to Speed Up
Several years ago, a business mentor of mine named Bill Hendrich (who is an Executive Vice President for Cox Media Group) made a thought provoking statement to me that stuck. He said, "Sometimes you have to slow down to speed up." It resonated because it was a simple truth. Later, God invoked the revelation to me that this same principle is revealed in Hebrews 12:1 which states, "let us run with patience the race that is...

Media Protects Bill Gates but Social Media Rips Him Apart
Unfortunately for Bill Gates, people from all over the world are not buying his philanthropist identity that he’s been trying to sell for a long time. This is most likely because he never truly was a philanthropist. Gates has been in bed with Big Pharma and the vaccine industry for years with a personal agenda of vaccinating the world. Not because it’s necessary, but because it’s what he wants. Consequently,...

Race and the Coronavirus
When the news of the Coronavirus landed on the American shores it first was given little attention. Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in January 2020 stated, “the coronavirus is not a major threat.” A few weeks later when the first American died from the virus in the state of Washington; several African American Facebook intellectuals and want-to-be revolutionaries argued that Covid-19 was not a threat to the Black community;...
