Tell Someone Today What Could Kill You Tomorrow

I am sincerely praying for the family of Robin Williams. It hurts my heart so deeply that the very person who made a living by making others laugh, was himself struggling to smile. From the reports, he was sober for 20 years before relapsing. This is pure authentic proof of what I posted yesterday. You NEVER know who someone really is until you dig deep, and keep digging. So sad. Yes, 63 is an age that many would envy, especially from the amazing professional career that he had.

By The Way, I’m…

A Club Worth Fighting For…

It’s funny how the Hebrew meaning of “Nehemiah” is “[God] comforted.” Nehemiah 4:14 has left an indelible mark in my spirit. For eight weeks, I have surrounded my life around fighting. Not defensively, but offensively. Fighting for my family, fighting for my peace, fighting for my joy, fighting for my faith. This fight hasn’t been as a result of a last-minute effort to save my marriage. I have been through that already, and succeeded. Nor has it been a desperate plea to prove that I am a good father. God is constantly perfecting me in that area. But it was … Continue reading A Club Worth Fighting For…
