Men of Folly

Men of Folly

Why do men say I pray for you – Keep in touch – Go in God – When in their hearts they distance themselves away from me While looking in my face Thinking they hide with insincere rhetoric on the fringes of guilt I discern in their voice and even in their written words Emotionally immature standing in giant shoes of spirituality They only wrong themselves again and again For when they do such things They do it unto Christ the King I’ll not be blind Nor will I co-sign such sad fate Of prisoners held by chains of fear Such deeds will not offend me for I am free From my own insecurities God forbid that I should be bound by the bound Only to be held down from arising to ceaseless joy Found in fulfilling the will that heaven has ordained for my life I am filled with only prayers that such men would see It is not them or me but the enemy Who would keep us from a fellowship of faith That enables us to graduate to a newness of wonder Beyond the comfort zones of religion Created by systemic algorithms rooted in self-righteousness An abyss of demonic enchantments That rob us of glorious adventure Given by God to each of us for His purpose Purpose that demands each of us to shift to greatness To face our insecurities To reject that thief whose wiles Has taken captive the masses of mankind The devil be rebuked in Jesus Name! Oh God set us men free from from the false narrative Of the pride that whispers...
A Position of Faith for 2018

A Position of Faith for 2018

Faith cannot be developed in a fishbowl. It requires stepping out into the unknown – releasing the familiar in order to embrace the miracle that faith alone can give birth to. It is putting everything on the altar of the common to experience the uncommon kindness of God.  Faith is putting the needs of others before yours, knowing that when you do, you serve God and He will never be in-debt to anyone. He will restore you 30, 60, and 100 fold – according to your faith. The above paragraph expresses the very core of my being. It is why I decided to ride my bike throughout America. I’m in search of the miracle that only faith alone can give birth to. I just wasn’t satisfied doing the predictable, which is to stay in the arena of what I know and fail to have a revelation of what God knows. I put many things on hold – even in the midst of struggling with personal debt, the emotional processes of being healed from scars on my heart from past experiences from others but moreso from myself.  I just flat out refused to be forced into the systemic default response to these issues. We all have them. The just show up in different ways. They stare at us and dare us to step out of their grip by faith! It’s as if they have rights on my mind, on my heart, and on my will. They use phrases like, “you have to pay your bills,” “you have to have a place to live,” “you have to eat,” you have to...

The Unknown Journey

The Unknown Journey

Everyday during my bike trek holds a new adventure. I am persuaded that until I allow God to take me to a place, a way of life or an unknown journey of some kind, I will never ever discover who He has made me to be. If you have a routine of predictability and a life that is centered around a paradigm that is all about being comfortable and having your nice life in tact, you are missing your unknown journey and a discover of who you really are. Only God can show this to you and you have to let Him take you on the journey just for you. I pray this poem speaks to your heart.   As I release what is known to me As I reach by faith beyond what I see I begin an unknown journey To a destiney beyond the scripted lie told by mere mortals who die I’ll not capitulate my identity To satisfy society To fit in a group who groops my mind with old ideas scripted to arrest my individuality Less I miss the unknown journey tailored for me A unique, unscripted expression of experiences await my commitment Beacons my heart to step by faith in its direction To find a deepening fulfillment beyond temporal satisfaction The unknown journey to meet a known and yet unknown God He’s drawing me into a deeper knowing of Who He is… to me Only when I yield by faith towards this unknown journey I will begin today Share this:FacebookLinkedInTwitterTumblrLike this:Like...
Who Are Your Friends?  Really…

Who Are Your Friends? Really…

Nine days into my “Shift to Greatness Bike Trek,” I’m discovering something about myself that has confirmed what I knew deep inside to be true.  The fact that I, like most, roam around people who share common ideas, beliefs and political views, and that I knew “where” most of my friends would be found. I even knew “what” they might believe and especially “who” they would more than likely vote for. Despite all this, I still believed there were so many more people who had richness of experiences to offer me – if I would be willing to part from my own comfort zone based on a faulty narrative that was actually rooted in my own self-righteousness. The truth is, I don’t think we ever outgrow the deep desire of wanting friends and wanting to believe the friends we have are – friends. Because we live in such polarized times, friendship has become more complicated than ever. We’ve allowed the “god” of politics or religion to override the volition of choice that gives us the freedom of will to connect with people, to have conversation, to enjoy discourse and even to disagree with civility and respect. I’m afraid those days are gone and they won’t ever be coming back as a societal reality.  It will take a radical departure – on a personal level – from the deep dark divide that is taking a hard grip on the hearts of Americans. However, not all of the divide is necessarily “dark.” I’m concerned that an “angel of light” has even deceived many into thinking that their ideology, political smarts and...
