2 Chronicles 7:14If my people, which are called by my, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; than will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.Tuesday's focus message was Moral Correctness, and it was determined that moral correctness is obeying and abiding by God's moral laws; therefore, today's focus is a Spiritual reawakening which incorporates obeying God's laws and recognizing that His laws is right are just and holy. A spiritual revival comes from acknowledging that yes we need a Savior, and a deliverer. God is the answer who can and will save and deliver. God asks us to do four things; (a) humble ourselves, (b) pray, (c) seek His face, (d) and turn from our wicked ways, and then He will do the rest. God never fails and is faithful to His promises. The question now becomes, why do we need saving and delivering? Sin is the culprit as it is rampart. It appears as though there are no God-fearing…Continue

Today's message is a series of reflective questions that is inspired by the latest immoral events that have occurred in this country over the two weeks, but began some time ago. Several years ago (2008) I wrote commentaries which asked the following questions: (a) has America lost its moral Compass? The question was raised because it appeared back then that what was wrong had become the new norm and today that perception is more prevalent than ever before with the Supreme Court ruling that same sex marriage is protected under the Constitution of this country. This contradicts God's law which states that marriage is between man and a woman, not two of the same sex. These questions come to mind, did these decision makers ever consider the institution of marriage implemented by God according to Genesis1:27? How did we get to this point when our leaders and or appointed officials feel that they have the final say or of the highest authority? There is a God and He is going to rain down…Continue

Yes I Can
The day has just begun and it seems there's no way out,
As the alarm clock goes off I beg for more time before the point of no return
Every minute I have is already accounted for, with the feeling of loneliness and
Abandonment; I cry out hoping to be heard.
I'm single, married but alone in this race to…Continue
