#20 Illogical Instructions Part 1: God will fight my battles

Announcements:  Reminder: My bible study, “Journey to Purpose”, is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon (print and e-format), Xulon Press, and other Christian bookstores. If you missed the E-launch feel free to watch the previously recorded Facebook Live sessions.

An important criterion for any lasting relationship is trust –trust in the word and character of a significant other. Without trust, doubt and suspicion can creep into relationships and manifests in questioning a partners motives or displaying apprehensiveness in responding to requests. The thing about trust is that it requires you to have faith in the motives, words, and character of a significant other. Trust demands that you respond favorably even when you don’t have all the information you would like. In our relationship with God, exercising trust means that sometimes we will be asked to lay aside conventional wisdom, knowledge,  experiences, and even past works of God to realize that God is doing a new thing or moving in a different way in our lives.

#016 Seeing Yourself through the Eyes of God

Have you ever wondered what God/heaven thinks concerning you? During the silent moments of your journey to purpose it is tempting to doubt yourself, doubt what you heard, and doubt that your vision will come to fruition. During these times, God may not speak to you directly; however, He will speak through the others. As I reflect on experiences this past month, I realize the unexpected ways and the unlimited ability of God to assure and confirm His purpose and the good plans He has for our future.

#015 Good News!

Announcements: I’m going to be changing the format of the blog. From now on, I will primarily post articles instead of podcasts. I will occasionally post a podcast, for example, if I am interviewing a guest. Also, I want to let you all know that I experienced some type of malfunction with my email subscriber database and I have not been able to recover emails. If you would like to continue to receive emails, you will need to subscribe again. I will receive an email that you have subscribed and I can build the database for you to receive an email when new articles have posted to the blog. Greetings and welcome to my blog. Thank you for visiting and if you find the content of value, I pray you will share the blog with your friends and family. You can click on the links (i.e. FB, Instagram, email, Twitter) to share.

#013 Journey to Purpose: Ordered Steps

I’m back! I know I have been away for quite some time now but if you will stay tuned over the next few weeks, I will fill you in on where I’ve been and what I’m doing now. It is going to be so exciting. I’m excited about what God is doing and I can’t wait to see what’s next. I sense a huge break is on the horizon for me and for you too. One of my goals today is to encourage my listeners that God is ordering our steps toward purpose. Sometimes we can endure difficult times and experience delays, rejections, denials, and silent treatments, which make us feel forgotten. Please know you are not forgotten and God will not disappoint. He may be quiet but I assure you he is up to something and it’s going to be grand. Continue reading

#012 Prayer against Dementia

Today, I’m straying away from my usual topic on purpose. I feel led to dedicate a prayer for individuals diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer’s and anyone suffering from the symptoms. I have personally observed the debilitation of these diseases on my family line and having witnessed the same attack on my mother, aunts, and uncles. I have decided that I will not accept the pillage of these diseases without a fight. I know my family is not alone in this struggle. Perhaps you have noted the manifestation of these diseases on your family line or manifestation for the very first time. I would like to share this simple prayer with you as well.

Highlights from Today’s Episode:

  • The name of every disease is under the foot of Jesus –even the name of dementia/alzheimer’s
  • Provision for healing has been given… use it, accept it, take it


Matthew 10:1
James 5:15
Isaiah 53:5
Jeremiah 8:22
John 10:10
3 John 1:2

Talk Back:
Have you surrendered authority to a name that is under the feet of Jesus?

#011 Dubious Distraction of Offense

Greetings everyone. I pray you’ve received information of value from the segments about the distractions that derail purpose. If you will recall from Part 1 of our discussion on the Distraction of “Good Works”, we mentioned several types of distractions, including dubious distractions. “Dubious distractions” are distractions that come by way of a planned and assigned attack from the enemy, more specifically, offenses.
