6 Comments » Because more than a few of us struggle with the question, “How can I know the will of God?,” imagine this scenario:
We plead with God to show us what he wants us to do in a difficult situation. That night as we toss and turn, we dream that God shows up to answer our request. In his presence, we sense a love that is far beyond anything we ever imagined. But we are surprised when, after hearing our request, God asks us two questions: “Why are you asking? “What do you want to do?” Then we wake up…
While trying to imagine such an encounter, let’s try to think this through together in light of the way our Lord talks about his will in the Bible.
When looking for what the God “in whom we live and move and have our being” wants us to do,
1.  What can we learn from asking ourselves “Why we are …

Happy Father's Day

Here is a Father's Day Tribute to all Fathers, Grandfathers, God Fathers, Uncles or any man that played the role of a father for someone! Enjoy your day!

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities
, When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,
He called it ... Dad

Quote Corner: Life

Hope you enjoy! Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
Helen Keller Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.
Jawaharal Nehru

Life is like the dice that, falling, still show a different face. So life, though it remains the same, is always presenting different aspects.
Alexis
Our life's a stage, a comedy: either learn to play and take it lightly, or bear its troubles patiently.
Palladas 
We make our fortunes, and we call them fate.
Earl of Beaconsfield
The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.

Taking Time to Say Thank You!

I love my life. God has been so good to me and I have been blessed with so many opportunities. I have accomplished so much in my life before the age of 30 and I have so much more to do. Through all that I have and all that I have been blessed to do, I still take every day to give God all the honor and glory and thanking him for all that he has done. I thank him for his peace, patience, love, omnipresence and everything else. When I was at my lowest point, God kept me. I know that I am here for a purpose. I believe one of those purposes is to empower and encourage. Which is why I have this blog. I have worked with so many people, young and experienced and I have been around individuals who feel that they have nothing to live for. They live for the moment and do not care about the choices they make that will affect their future. To those who read my blog and fall under that category, I want to thank you also. I thank you because you I know that you too have a story to tell and I am than…

You have to go through a tough time to get to a blessing!

This past month has been a bit of a whirlwind. I have gone through a lot of emotional ups and downs. My faith has been tested, finances were a bit shaky, I lost a friend, I questioned myself as to who I am and who I am suppose to be and so much more. Through it all, I was able to keep my sanity and pray. Some may say that they have been through worst and I just experienced the normal things of life, and that maybe true. But regardless of the trial, whether it be big or small, I still see it as a test. One thing that some tend to forget is that we will be tested in life with many trials, but it is how we handle the pressure that will determine our outcomes. This experience has given me the opportunity to get closer to God. To seek his guidance in all situations that came my way. One thing that I know is that it is so hard to talk to God when you are going through the toughest times in life. But it is during those times when you need Him the most. God allows some things to happen in our…
