Monday Devotional 

2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

I just want to say happy independence day to all my fellow Americans. If it was not for the Spirit of the Lord being with the colonists, we would not have the ability to be here today right now. Please enjoy today’s festives but do not over indulge please and stay safe.

Proverbs 28:7

The one who keeps the law is a son with understanding, but a companion of gluttons shames his father.

Thursday’s Devotional

​Romans 15:2

Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up.

I wanted to write a little about this verse and the power of these words. Now of days everyone is so focused on themselves and achieving their own goals that they forget to serve and help others. Remember that God commands of us to love thy neighbor! I am not saying to not set goals and work hard, but what I am saying is do not forget to help your neighbors. Help build them up and help them better themselves. Equip them in the same way you equip yourself. God loves those who help others because that is why he put us here. We are to fellowship and counsel each other. Please remember that when you see someone in need of help or guidance. Think about how Jesus would help that person and emulate Him. I pray that everyone has a blessed day and God bless you all.

Wednesday’s Motivation

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Too many people live their life in worry. They worry about their finances, relationships, or health. If you are one of those people take comfort in the fact that the Lord is with you. Our God comforts us during these times. We are to be strong when we feel weak because he is with us. If you are afraid or discouraged, don’t be because he is with us. Our God is always with us and never against us. He wants us to be strong and happy but is all comes down to trust. If you trust in our God all things are possible. If you trust that he is with you then your strength will be drawn through him. So please take comfort in that and start your day off right. Give thanks to our Lord for always being there for you. For the good times and the bad. Have a blessed day yall.

Thursday’s Motivation

Galatians 6:9 “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.  At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”

I always tell people to do the right thing because God is watching them. Often times people laugh, but it is a serious subject that needs to be discussed. I know at times we are tempted to cut corners or have a blind eye on something. These are human urges that we need to fight because it pushes us off our path of righteousness. We are to always do what is right in the eyes of the Lord. It may not be today or tomorrow, but we do get rewarded for showing good judgment and having the courage to do the right thing. We try to justify why we don’t do what is right, but would you justify your actions to God? Think about your actions and always do what is right in the eyes of our Lord. That is how you make a difference in this world. Leading by example. The world does not need fake or religious Christians, but honest ones that live their life right. Have a blessed day yall!

Tuesday’s Motivation

Acts 18:9
One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a dream, “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent.”

I love this verse because it discusses a issue that happens even today. As Christians, we are called to spread the good news yet many of us feel out of place or uncomfortable in doing so. We may not want to feel weird, but my brothers and sisters we belong to a bigger calling. It is not about how you feel when talking to people. It should be about wanting to spread the word of GOD and plant the seeds that will hopefully mature in people and make them want to seek out the truth. If we all stay quite and in a shell we are not only hurting ourselves, but robbing others of potentially being saved! Please do not be ashamed to be a Christian and spread the word of God. I pray everyone has a blessed day!

Happy Father’s Day

Proverbs 3:11-12

My son, do not reject the LORD’s discipline, and do not despise his correction, because the LORD corrects the person he loves, just as a father corrects the son he delights in.

I just want to say happy Father’s day to all the fathers out there. I just wanted to talk about fatherhood for a minute today. As a parent the father figure is always known as a disciplinary figure, but a real father understands that being a disciplinary figure does not mean to break your children down. We are there to be stern and correct our children out of love, just like God does us. Father’s day is not about a pat on the shoulder, but a day to remember how much we delight in our children. Without them, we would not be father’s and have the opportunity to grow from them. I want to once again wish everyone a happy Father’s day and continue to be a good role model for your children to emulate! God entrusted his children to you and always remember that.

Tuesday Motivation

I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me. Come, my lover, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the
night in the villages. Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have
opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom– there I will give you my love. The mandrakes send out their
fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my lover.
Song of Solomon 7:10-13 NIV

This gives a beautiful picture of the intimacy between a couple. I did a bible study this morning with my wife on this bible verse. I love how it talks about getting away together.  My wife and I talked a lot about keeping worldly desires out of a relationship.  Now of days, relationships never last and that is because people feel that everyone is replaceable. Because of that true intimacy can never be reached. 

There are layers of intimacy in a couple. Sex is only one. Spending quality time and communicating your wants and goals are another. The only way to do this is by making time for each other. Do not let life keep you from your spouse.  Make a schedule for each other and keep it. Make regular dates and communicate about everything. After my 10 years of marriage, I have learned this. I am far from perfect and have made a ton of mistakes. But doing these things I’m writing you today is what kept us away from divorce many times in the past. Stay strong and keep the world out of your relationship. God bless you all!
