PUTTING GOD FIRST

Below is an excerpt from my first book: His Delight. Details can be found on the “Books” section of this website.
Read and be blessed
(Exodus 20:3) You shall have no other gods before me.
What does this mean? It means regarding God more highly than you regard anyone or anything else: family, career, money, possessions, and friends. It means that if it came to deciding which path to follow, the answer would be to follow God every time. Anyone or anything […]

My Life Sucks!

The following is an excerpt from my book His Delight:31 days of Praise and Worship.
You  may be reading this and thinking, my life is a mess, I have nothing to praise   God for.

When I am in the  dumps, I try to […]

You are meant to go, go wherever He […]

Happy Easter

Happy resurrection day everyone! Today is the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ who God sent as a sacrifice to redeem mankind. This poem is about the love of God which necessitated such sacrifice.
Bittersweet
Brighter far than the noonday harmattan sun,

Deeper far than the trench of Marianas,
Stronger than a destructive tornado,
More electrifying than streaks of lightning,
Much louder than a clap of thunder,
More radiantly beautiful than a summer sunset,
More fragrant than a big […]
