"All that we are... we owe."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

We are immensely delighted and

honored that you have taken the 

time to visit...

We consider it a profound privilege and 

blessing to have the liberty to reach across

 the globe to sow a potpourri of relevant 

and edifying content we pray will 

nourish the soul and quench the spirit.


God is the Source of our enthusiasm for 

establishing this website, and by His grace,

He is at the heart of it all. 

God provides us with a solid foundation. 

 And the peace of God, which exceeds all 

comprehension, encircles our thoughts 

and hearts. 


Our main goal is to please God.

God's approval is our ultimate priority.

We pray that these humble efforts will 

be acceptable to God and never serve 

as a hindrance or stumbling block in

 anyone's life.


We are convinced, God uses ordinary individuals 

like you and me to provide encouragement. He 

gives usolace via other individuals who are 

eager to support and uplift us when we're down. 

In the same way, we are all expected to comfort 

others who are suffering with the same kind of 

comfort that God gives to us.

Hebrews 3:13 says, "But encourage one another 

daily, while it is called Today." First Thessalonians 

5:11 says, "Therefore encourage one another and 

build each other up." 


The Word of God is filled with

 scriptures that are designed to encourage us 

and directions on how to encourage one another. 

Why does the Bible promote 

encouragement? 

Mostly because encouragement is important for 

our spiritual journey. The best motivator is

 encouragement. It provides us a reason to 

keep pressing on and have a positive attitude

 about our endeavors rather than a pessimistic one.


With this labor of love, we aspire to produce 

quality work, inspire others, and conduct 

ourselves in a way that is genuine, creative, 

useful, of service, and a blessing


We accept the truth of the painful events in our 

past and we try not to reject them or downplay 

their impact on our lives. We are putting forth 

effort, daily, to let go of our desire for life to 

unfold according to our plans and giving our 

history to God so He may accept it and make 

good use of it.


We believe, learning how to use our past pain 

to serve a cause is a powerful way to overcome 

our past hurts. We have gleaned from many of  

our life's challenges to support and recharge 

others. We take what we can from the past, 

and if it does not serve us well... then we 

acknowledge that and move on. 


We intend to offer encouraging, accurate, 

inspirational, motivational, and maybe other 

valuable and insightful content that 

can benefit us all, especially when our

 normal enthusiasm has waned.


Every person needs encouragement 

at some time in their lives in order to 

keep going.

Our mission is to impart grace, encouragement, 

and edification that will positively awaken and

 uplift lives internally, externally, and eternally.


These commentaries were not written in

 an effort, by any means, to place or present 

ourselves as experts or as flawless individuals 

who figured it all out. Trust, we have not figured 

it all out. We have many faults and failures. 


Having a heart for God does not equal human 

infallibility. Being fallible and making mistakes

 is inherent to being human. In other words, we 

are not immune to errors. We know we have 

much more to learn, this is why, with great 

intentionality... we humbly remain ever-teachable

 spirits, willing, and usable channels for greater 

works. We are committed to staying true and 

giving voice to our faith. 



We live in an uncertain world... life is 

unpredictably unpredictable. Much of 

what lies ahead in life is still unpredictable, 

whether it has to do with a worldwide 

pandemic, the economy, our health, or 

relationships. However, we humans yearn

 for security. We can experience worry, 

anxiety, and a sense of helplessness which 

may emotionally deplete us and keep us 

mired in a pit of never-ending "what-ifs" 

and worst-case scenarios about what the 

future may hold.


The degree of uncertainty that each of 

us can handle in life varies. While some

 people appear to relish taking chances and

 leading uncertain lives, others find the arbitrary

 nature of life to be incredibly upsetting. We all, 

however, have a limit. It's crucial to realize that

 we're not alone if we feel paralyzed by doubt and

 anxiety; many others share our situation. It's crucial 

to understand that, despite how powerless and 

hopeless we may feel, God is.


We all go through difficulties... whether it is for a 

brief moment in time or... an entire season. We 

believe; when circumstances feel unsteady

 and unpredictable, in God's never-ending, 

far-exceeding strength and character, we can 

find serenity. 

The definition of peace in the Scriptures is that 

it is a gift from God and is consistent with 

Who God is.



We are encouraged to trust God despite the shifting 

and erratic seasons life brings. God is continuous 

and unwavering in his faithfulness in both happy 

and difficult times. Life may be difficult and 

unjust at times. We become upset when things 

don't go the way we had hoped, but God is 

always trustworthy.


Our faith gives us the confidence to trust that God

 has greater plans for us than we could ever fathom. 

Regardless of the outcome, our faith must give us 

the strength to persevere and go on in the direction 

that God is leading us and not lean on our own

understanding.


God is always faithful and we can trust God... 

even through the darkest, most agonizing, 

overwhelming disappointments, and hardships.

Difficult circumstances may appear to linger 

forever, but we believe, they are only fleeting. 

We know God is always greater than our 

circumstances, and we can trust the 

dependability of God through it all.


Most of us would choose smooth roadways

 with no bumps, potholes, construction zones, or 

detours if we could chart our paths through life. 

But life often forces us to take detours that aren't 

even marked on the map, causing us to take 

unexpected turns. 


The "disruptive moments" of life may appear 

in the bends of the road. These disruptive periods 

can force us to face life's hardest facts. Many times 

they are defined by discomfort and tribulations, 

they frequently drive us to proceed in ways we never 

wanted to go and presumably would have gone to 

considerable efforts to avoid. They could appear

 to us in the shape of loss, separation, sickness, 

accidents, and more, and many times they can

 completely alter our lives.


Pressure makes diamonds, and Cut unleashes the 

potential of the diamond making it perform in 

the spotlight. The pressure that a person is under 

can force them to demonstrate the best of their 

abilities. The gem cannot be polished without

 friction nor man without trials. 


Sometimes taking a step backwards is necessary

 in order to advance a few steps. It's possible that 

taking a step backwards will help us proceed more

 efficiently.


 The power that God has placed inside of us is 

absolutely greater than the roadblocks, lies, 

betrayals, and deception Satan tries to pollute 

our minds and hearts with. God can expose it all.


Let us never underestimate what God can 

accomplish through ordinary people. We 

believe that God has placed a distinct calling...

 a distinct mission on each of our lives, and God 

knew what those callings were even before

 we entered our mother's womb. 


We believe, that which God has called us to 

do will always be something we cannot do 

on our own. We are convinced that each of 

us has been given a unique purpose and 

calling... responsibilities that we cannot

 fulfill on our own, without God's guidance.


We believe God desires to work in and 

through us to complete these "impossible" 

tasks, in a powerful way. We believe that 

as long as we struggle to do things on our

 own and refuse to yield to God, Who

 resides within us, we will continue to fall

 short of God's call on our lives.


In Acts 10:34 it states,

"God is no respecter of persons."

God will act through anyone who makes a

 conscious decision to submit himself or 

herself to Him.  


We believe, God delights in transforming 

ordinary, flawed, and inexperienced individuals, 

flaws, pimples and all, into amazing souls.


We pray the following virtual chapters will 

engage both the intellect and the heart, sparking 

the power within us all to stay positive, 

genuine, and constructive while disregarding, 

steamrolling over, and letting go of all doubt 

and fear.


We may be unable to open someone's heart to 

God's Truth, but God can. In fact, 

"God is able to do exceedingly 

abundantly above all that we 

ask or think."

May the wind reawaken any sails in our lives

 which may have lain dormant, giving us the 

strength and courage to stand up, honor and 

respect the work of our Creator, pursue our

 passions, and not be afraid to get back up, 

dust ourselves off, and try again, if we 

fail or fall. 


We sincerely believe God has a plan for our lives, 

and God always does things with good intentions

and will fulfill His plans for us all


We will do our best to work toward God's 

purposes in getting things right. We will 

continue to step out on faith, even if we feel

 uneasy, humbly knowing that God can move

 us from our failures to achievement.


All of us are born into this world with

 unique gifts to do what God has already 

ordained, written, and brought us into this 

world to do. As we see it, God has the

 power to transform our failures into 

triumphs. We believe, God works out 

everything to its proper end. 


We owe everything we are and have to God. 

We believe, when we prioritize God... 

keeping God in the forefront of all of our 

affairs, we can flourish wherever God has

planted us. 



We believe, our highest good and

 God's greatest blessings frequently emerge

 from the still, unassuming, but necessary

crucible of our own individual challenges

 and hardships.


Many of the seed thoughts and consciously

creative commentaries on our website are

 mainly drawn from our collective knowledge, 

observation, and experiences gained from 

what life has taught us, especially through 

our personal challenges. Although the specific 

challenges wrestled with are not necessarily 

revealed... the lessons acquired from the 

trials are. 


Sometimes, it can be all too easy to doubt

 that we have something to give to others.

Those who criticize us and try to discredit 

us into silence really don't understand our 

focus, commitment, passion, or interests. 

Simply put, they do not understand us... and 

that is perfectly fine. 


However, when all is said and done, if we 

abandon or dismiss sharing the Good News, 

to the best of our ability, we do ourselves and 

this hurting world, in desperate need, a huge 

disservice!


The Scriptures repeatedly encourage us to

 share God with others. But, often, there 

are a multitude of thoughts which can 

hinder us from doing so. 


We can only hope visitors will feel compelled

to turn to these commentaries for inspiration 

and motivation during difficult times, and 

find comfort and encouragement there.


It is our hope these commentaries will add 

to, confirm values, broaden our understanding, 

edify, deepen our knowledge, as well as help 

others and ourselves move forward and live 

better lives.


We believe that God's grace and existence are not

 for hiding the Good News beneath a bushel basket

 and claiming it secretly, but for proclaiming it from 

the rooftops!

"We cannot help speaking about 

what we have seen and heard." 

Acts 4:20


Our aim is to cultivate, embrace, and pass on

peace and truth with care, love, and grace... 

to the best of our ability... no arm-twisting,

and no statements of...

"You simply have to believe."


It is not our purpose to persuade you to agree

with us; rather, we want to point people back 

to God and their true calling. 

We believe others will desire to 

know the Source of our joy... as we let 

God's Light shine through us.


At its core, we believe that a full life consists

 of seeing and serving God in one another. This

means that we should always do no damage and

leave everyone we meet in a better state than they

 were before we arrived. We owe it to each other,

our children, grandchildren, and generations yet

to be born... to leave them not the same, not

worse off, but awakened, attentive, alert, aware,

and in a considerably higher and whole state of

being.


We are trusting God to release these messages,

 truths, and well wishes out into the universe 

and deliver them to their proper destination.


So, regardless of who you are or where you are, 

we invite you to read the pages of this 

website with an open heart and great optimism.


May the following virtual chapters be enlightening,

 inspirational, and abundantly beneficial for us all.

In His Love,

We grow our faith by

 trusting God, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. 

Our future can be undermined by holding on to the past.

We desire to know and  do God’s will. The ultimate test a person faces is whether he has 

done the Will of God.

We understand the courage and grace it 

takes to unpack truths and speak out. 

We lose our sense of self-worth when we don't speak out for ourselves and/or those who cannot speak for themselves. We become caught up in a loop of justifying behavior that leads us further away from our beliefs and, eventually, away from the person we were born to be. 

We are followers of God, Who is Holy, Unchanging and our only True Authority, Constantly-Present, Who is Just, Righteous, Merciful, and Absolute Love.

Our goal is to please God. 

We are intentionally attempting to make all that we do... pleasing to God.

Whatever we do, we are to work heartily, as for God and not 

for men.

Colossians, 3-23
