Resurrect Your Life!
Blogs
The loudness of a negative circumstance is about the space it wants to occupy in your mind. Bad circumstances try to bully your faith and the Word of God deposited in you. Bad circumstances want all your focus on their problem and not God's power. Don't fall for that trick! God is in the business of making you into one of His success stories. Anytime you act...

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. The fibers of this world's systems are under attack by natural forces that all lead to a core spiritual problem. God is making a clear distinction between Himself and...
Time to Get High
Blogs
God is calling us to higher! A higher level of love. A higher level of obedience. A higher level of righteousness. A higher level of wisdom. A higher level of sacrifice for the greater good. A higher level of empowering and equipping others to win. God is calling us to higher! There is greatness within each of us. We need to learn to hear the voice of God inside of us that we can...
Having A Willing Heart Is More Important Than Availability
Blogs
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...
Slow Down to Speed Up
Blogs
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...
You and What Army?
Blogs
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...
Align with the Mogul
Blogs
Align your life with the mover and shaker of the entire universe, there is no mogul in this world that can teach you the principles of successful living better than God can. I want to encourage all business owners and executives to start praying and speaking life over their businesses. You can line up with your circumstances and give up or you can line up with God...
Do You See What I See
Blogs
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...
How Much Loss Must We Experience Before We Change
Blogs
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. Yet, God will always desire your personal...
Who Are You....Really? What Are You Becoming?
Blogs
I listen to a lot of different music but mostly what folks would say falls into the Gospel and Hip Hop space. Being a former record label executive myself, I have a profound respect for people who can entertain and educate through art. In the Gospel space, I tell you no one in this era musically makes me think about my spiritual walk more than Jonathan McReynolds. Pressure, Make Room, Cycles, Not Lucky, I'm...
The Chains Are Broken
Blogs
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...
The Stewards, The Owner & The Blessings
Blogs
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...
Ask God Not Men
Ask God Not Men Featured
Blogs
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...
It is All About the Heart!
Blogs
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...
Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune's Words on Confidence in One Another
Blogs
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...
It is All About the Heart part 2: Good vs. Evil
Blogs
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...
