Proverbs 8:19-23 King James Version (KJV)  19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. 20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: 21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. 22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

In our scripture text, we have some nuggets, like wisdom is better than gold and silver. Those who have wisdom inherit material things. What strikes me the most, is verses 22 and 23rd, The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His way before His works of old, I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning or ever the earth was.  Wisdom was with God and God has wisdom. The Lord says if we want wisdom ask Him.

James 1:15 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. KJV 

Wisdom is important for all to have in every aspect of life. It will help one stray from danger and make good choices. Who does not wisdom?

Image result for peace in the midst of chaos


Chaos is a state of utter confusion. People are upset and things are not making sense. In the midst of this, something magnificent happening, one is becoming stronger. The strength to stand is being formed. If you do not whether the storm, how are going to find out what you are capable of doing and handling?

Let’s look at the oyster. When a grain of sand or food particle gets stuck in the mollusk of oyster, the oyster protects its self by coating the particle with nacre. As a result of this defense mechanism, a pearl is formed.

If the particle was never stuck, the pearl would not be formed. If chaos or trouble, do not happen, one would not know if they can handle the situation and one would not be stronger in that area.

The Bible tells us in the midst of trouble, we will find comfort and strength in God.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

When the next bout of trouble comes, think, what will I gain from this experience?

Image result for compromise



Compromise is the settlement of differences by mutual agreement. Sometimes in life, we will have to compromise. You may not get the thing done the way you wanted to, but it gets done. Now, there is somethings that one can not compromise. One thing that should not be compromised is ones soul, ones life.

In John 10:10, Jesus said  “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

The Lord Jesus wants us to have a abundantly life. A life full of love, joy and peace even in the midst of trouble.  Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age and shall flourish.

How to resolve conflict at work in just five daysHow to resolve conflict at work in just five daysHow to resolve conflict at work in just five days

Image result for resolve a problem

During the beginning of every year, we hear “New Year Resolution”.  Resolution is the act of resolving. Resolving is to deal with successfully; to clear up. Are there issues that you want to resolve in 2017?  Are there issues that you carried over from 2016 to 2017? I encourage you to write them down and come up with a plan that will allow you to resolve. Take baby steps. Once you complete one part, reward yourself as a way to keep motivated and push forward. Change is good and resolving to make a change that will benefit your life is most important.

Genesis 2:7 King James Version (KJV) And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Mind, body and soul. Remember to feed your mind good food, which are good thoughts. God created us in His image and we are part spirit. The words that we speak are seeds. Seeds grow.

Proverbs 18:21 KJV Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Choose to speak life over yourself today. Stay positive.

Welcome 2017


Image result for welcome 2017

2016 was year of change, challenges and growth. Was I sad to see 2016 leave? No. Was I excited to see 2017 come in? Hmmmm, kind of. I am not really sure how to answer that one.  As I get older, I realize more, the importance of the day, the time, the present moment.  Did I accomplish something? Am I happy or mad?  Am I being lovely?

The number 17 in the Bible symbolizes “overcoming the enemy” and “complete victory.” The enemy could be procrastination, you know, not doing what needs to be done. The enemy could be problem at home, work or among friends. The enemy could be leaving money on the table.  No leaving money on the table,is one that I am not going to do. For example, with corporate companies, insurance benefits now come with perks in which you earn health bucks that can be used for medical benefits. If you work out 30 minutes a day, you earn $5. Last year, I did not do a good job with this and that meant, I left money on the table. I refuse to do so this year. So, I made it a goal.

A goal is an end, a result that you have to work towards. It is something that you will benefit from. For 2017 I wrote out my goals. Now for 2016, I do not recall writing goals and if I did, I have not idea where I put them. On December 31st, I made sure all of my mail was opened and bills put to side so they can be addressed. I am probably the only one, that lets their mail pile up. Yeah Right!  I refused to start the new year with a pile of mess from 2016. Do you have mess that you have allowed to come over to 2017?  Stop the madness. Start 2017 fresh.

I hope 2017 is a year of over coming. May you be blessed beyond measure. May you reach higher heights and deeper deeps in Christ Jesus. May you know your purpose. May you love and love some more.
