“I sought the Lord; he heard me and delivered me from all my fears.” (Ps. 34)
A Lion’s roar is loud. He draws his strength from one’s fear. The growl can cause your heart to skip a beat, “My soul lies down among the lions; they dug a pit in my path.” (Ps. 56) Fearful thoughts are a reaction and not an action. How does one respond to such a threat?
When Irma blew through, she brought with her a powerful wind and rain that battered the side of my house and my being. I felt as though I was in the lion’s den, like Daniel was; the wind was howling. It was time to go to battle.
I grabbed the most powerful weapon in my arsenal, the 91st Psalm. I prayed this passage without ceasing; over my home and my family who were all in different locations, “Even when troubles overwhelm you, praise and bless the Lord.”
After the wind and rain died down, a new day arose. We walked the yard picking up debris. I saw what the power of nature could do.
The force of the wind caused the leaves of my Lemon Grass plants to point as if they were praying on their knees, bowing to the earth. With all of this in my view, I was impressed to find the plants remained rooted to their foundation; intact, just as I was.
I take it on faith that God will breathe new life into everything. Sometimes, we have to stand still and see the power of God at work in the “little” details, “They looked unto him and were lightened.”
Choose to step softly and quietly, prepare carefully; know this too shall pass.
“In the shadow of your wings, I take refuge until the storms of destruction pass by.” (Ps. 56)

“Make known the mystery of God’s will, according to God’s purpose; as a plan for fullness of time, a predestined time, according to God’s will.” (Eph.1)
“In the heart of every person is a passionate desire to know that he or she is fulfilling the purpose for which they have been placed here on this earth. Have you found it? Found that one thing that is worthy of your one life?
Assuming that you have indeed found it, let me now ask — how’s it going?
If you’ve been at it for any appreciable length of time then you know by now that the journey is no cake walk. It is not a stroll through the park on a blissful Sunday afternoon. No. The path has many turns – up turns and down turns, ditches on both sides, potholes aplenty, and mounds of debris inconveniently strewn all about.
This will always be the case in every soul who follows Christ up Calvary’s mountain. Despite the trudge of each deliberate step, an unmistakable tone of triumph attends their every move – for each move is always onward and ever upward. And the Lord, who has gone victorious before us, will welcome us with open arms on the day we cross over the finish line.” (e-sword)
“They shall walk and not faint.” (Is.40)

“Go and wash in the pool of Siloam (which means “Sent”). So he went away, washed, and came back seeing.”
My goal is for others to see clearly; as was in the case of the man who was blind from birth and had his sight restored, “I must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work.”
You have an incredible task in front of you. I am here to help you maneuver this life.
What is causing your spiritual blindness? Study (John 9) and focus on what you see.
Jesus said, “Those who don’t see will see and those who see, will become blind.” Your eyes need to be opened a bit wider.
I want you to have more clarity and purpose in your work. “Honor who you are; do not let your truth be limited or dimmed in the eyes of another.”
“Get a new pair of glasses. See with the Light of Christ as it fills your entire being.”
