Diary of a Widow

As I mediate on the past event of what occurred in my life, I wonder if there was not a God could I have survived this devastation. So many times I wanted to give up and just say enough is enough I don’t need all this stress and pain in my life. But because of love, giving up always seems too vanished in thin air.

What I am trying to say is, because I know that God love me, and He won’t leave me to handle this all alone, I gain strength to hold on, and then I loved my family too much not to be there for them. But it was not easy.

For years my schedule was like this. I would come home from a grave yard shift working at the Miccosukee Indian Casino and then attend to my wife. Take my boys to school. Go out back to my second job, come back home in the evening and attend to me wife, while preparing meals for the boys, then try to get a little rest before going back to my night job. Next day doing it all over again.

Keep in mind between all this, there was many hospitals and doctor vis…


Start by believing in your heart that your ministry equips people to live a Christ-quality life. When you love ministry and demonstrate that love, your expressions of ministry impact people more than you can imagine. You will help people grow. At times you will swing from tender leader to fiery prophet to pleading priest. You will enrich your life too. You will stand taller and noble. You will be more spiritual and less scalar. You will have a cause to live for, to fight for and to die for. You will feel a sense of purpose, of making a different and of recovered self-worth. Wrap your arms around your ministry, and it will love you back in ways beyond loftiest dreams.

The leader who relives their call and choose to fall in love with their call all over again will declare their eagerness to go beyond their own inadequacies Christ likeness.

 My failure to be even to my own accepted standards.
 My self-deception in face of temptation.
 My choosing of the worst when I know the better.



What is an armor bearer? In Scripture, an armor-bearer (also spelled armorbearer and armor bearer) was a servant who carried additional weapons for commanders, in others words , a protector. In the church, an armor bearer duties range widely, but generally speaking, a church armor-bearer carries the “armor” of a church leader, such as the leader’s Bible “the sword of the Spirit” A church armor-bearer essentially serves as a church leader’s bodyguard.

Armor Bearers are not elected but are appointed by the Pastor from congregants who are in good standing, who are tithers, and who love the church and the Shepherd.
The main function of one who is designated as an armor bearer is that of service, for the biblical armor bearer was much more than a hired hand. An armor bearer was a person who undoubtedly spent many years, if not one’s entire life, in the leader’s service. If you area in such position, …

Leadership: Qualification to Lead.

True leadership is “Leading by Personal Example”

When it comes to leadership, one might think that it calls for a person with skills. Skills in planning, organizing, staffing, coordinating and reporting – function that describe the role of leadership assistance. Although these are important skills, leadership is calling for people with integrity, practical wisdom and “filled with the Holy Spirit”

Integrity: The first qualification for leadership. In the volatile climate of conflict and under the scrutiny of murmuring factions, administrative matters often turn into personal test of credibility and character. In these circumstances, leaders are visible and vulnerable.

Visible leadership is the leading edge of a true leader’s public witness, sometimes the court of last resort.

Practical Wisdom: The second qualification for leadership. Conflict create by self-interested factions are resolved until someone sees the “big picture” and evasions what psychologists call a “subordinate goal, to…


Good quality and pleasing to look at can be described as excellent. Only the excellent things will deem priceless and worth while to be called a classic.
Without pursuing excellence, life will remain bland and lukewarm at best. The quest for excellence fuels your fire and keeps you from just drifting downstream gathering debris.

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other. So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth”. (Revelation 3: 16-16 NIV)

To achieve excellent, one must not be undecided in what his/she is pursuing. A firm and steady action will be the evident when it comes to achieving. You must be excellent in all that you do, from your physical to spiritual, and the natural must be in excellent shape. For example, as you prepared to go to work, be the best that can be. As you engage in conversation with your cow workers or any one else, let you conversation be morally in good standin…


Building life is just like structuring a building. You want to build it so it could withstand from generation to generation. When you are dead on gone, your building (life) should still be function and operating as normal. This is why the scripture says that you should never consume all inheritance; leave some for you children’s children, meaning your grand children.

Proverbs 17:6, Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children. (NLT)

The grand children are the one who should gain the most of what you do in life. If you look at life in a long term sense, you could never go wrong.

Here is an explanation: Your grand children are you children’s children. You are the grandchild of your mother’s parent. Your mother is the grand child of her parent’s parent. In others, every person mention in this statement is a grand child, and will receive the crowning glory. The object is to think towards the future and build on it. Here is an example: Accordi…

The Gateway

In the book of John, the author writes in conjunction with what Jesus said. He said,

Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My [God’s] purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:9–10 (NLT)

It’s so unfortunate that we cannot get away from life’s occurrences. Sometimes, we try our best to avoid and hide from encountering situations, but the true fact is that we always bump right into them.

This is because there is an adversary who intended to kill, steal and destroy your dreams and desires. This is where a great majority of situations and circumstances come to hinder your goals in life.

Avoiding them can be a difficult task, but if you happened to be involved in any situation, here is where the purpose of Jesus comes into the picture. He said that He is the gateway to resolving any situation, and if you make the decision of going throu…

Motherhood: The Greatest Job in the World

There is no other love quite like a mother’s. In any person’s life, there will be no one who is as unconditionally caring, loving, forgiving, and patient as one’s mother. Being a mother is one of the great missions in life, and anyone who takes on the role is really to be commended. There is no salary for being a mother; the payment for this job is the unconditional love of your child.
Being a mother means putting your children or family first before anything else. The love and care is so great and endless that she will even give her own food to her child who is hungry. A mother can sacrifice what would have been for her just to be able to give her child what he or she wants and needs.
When it comes to being a mother and making the right decisions, there are certain things that must be remembered. A good mother can always carry out these things to the best of her ability.
1. Never makes decisions under pressure.
A good mother avoids making rash decisions. She is always cool and calm…


This question is often asked, is there really a God, or is there some kind of force that controls our every thought? How about the people who claim they are preaching the word of God. Are they full of baloney? How about this thing call prayer, does it really work?

You get on your knees and bow your head, or some other posture position, and then you begin to speak to the air, claiming there is someone listening to you. Then you wait for a response to whatever you are praying for. It may sound like something no normal person would do. However, do not try to analyze or figure out how prayer works; all you need to know is it works every time, if you do it the right way.

Just think for a moment.

What happens if there really is a God? That would mean that there really is a thing called prayer. That is something to think about, isn’t it? If you are sure there is a God, then be sure that there is prayer, God and prayer are inseparable, and they cannot be separated, just as humans and praye…
