The Art of Aliases

inspired by a true story –

It’s a beautiful, cool and clear Tuesday morning and reverence is abounding. Everything is so still. The leaves hang in solitude as the flowers stand quietly at in observance. I sit and wonder, why do God’s creations try to deceive the very framework of which love is conceived?

God, our creator, did not make us something we are not. My heart saddens for those who believe living fictitiously will crown them glory. Does their world spin differently… like more in their favor? God is aware they are the same today as they were long ago except their integrity is exceedingly soured. Hiding from the truth will not grant them amnesty.

Walk away, ashamed of those who portray to be forthright. They linger in the night pretending to hide from reality. Aliases won’t change their identity even if hiding in a church choir or singing among the congregation.

Do we ever totally get to know those we are supposed to be so close to? I wonder… like boxes quietly sitting upon a shelf waiting, the truth well-hidden, will come out eventually. As though it was Christmas with surprises neatly wrapped, the facts are to be revealed.

God forgive the innocent, the ones of integrity that say, “I do”…. the one that gives their heart, committed to a vow that’s broken in the dark. So many disgruntled feelings blossom in the sun giving light to the problems, as skeletons hide behind the closet.

Not alone, it’s a sad fact the blame changes hands and followers remain confused from their intentions. Walking away, while waiting on an answer, it will all be in God’s timing. The clichés are too numerous to mention. Words spread like wildfire; the wrath is upon the guilty. Defending themselves, though not an option, God will protect those of innocent integrity.

How dare they take a name in vain, one who once vowed under God? They will only be persecuted by the destruction of their fame. Serenity bows through the valley as only God anoints the dearly beloved. But where’s the righteousness of men who seek to damage the weakened hearts? I sympathize with the involuntary souls raked across the cinders. Their mercy is short-changed but the rewards of those guilty will cost them dearly.

The sun has risen; it’s a new day and God anoints the born again. May we stay in prayer as we observe the maneuvers of many who think the laws are only for the meek. Convinced their lifestyle is permissible, acquaintances, in awe, stare from a distance. In despair, we ask if we can help them, but sadly the reply is, “No, I am fine”, unaware of the wake of harm behind them. And God sits quietly knowing – shaking his head. They are only creating their own hell to share before the feet of God.


The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards.  They either help us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves.  We become like our friends.  No man becomes great on his own.  No woman becomes great on her own.  The people around them help to make them great.

We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose and challenge us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves.

What you are reading on my website is the result of a miracle from God. I am not a writer, though I am a messenger. God took a very dyslexic guy from Severna Park, Maryland, who never read or wrote a thing, and told me I was going to write messages to share with others. I do not have a degree, and English was my poorest subject. Trust me, it's only through God that I write. As you read, understand that we all have the ability to receive the gifts that Christ would like us to have, gifts from God. It happened to me, it can happen to you. Let God enter your soul and rule your spirit!

  1. Dear Dana,

    I’m K&L, the Founder & CEO of the Millionaire’s Digest Magazine, and I recently received your application requesting to become a writer for our magazine, and so this is just a my letter to you to let you know that I have completely looked over and have accepted you to become a writer for our Religion, Stories, and Successful Living Magazine!

    Now what happens next is that there is nothing that really happens next. Another words, there is no invitation or email that you have to go and check as the invitation for our magazine is only sent out 12 times a year which always happens at the beginning of the month. (Usually the first day.)

    This is just my letter to you as the CEO, just to let you know that I have accepted your request and have added you to our list full of magazine writers who I send the invitations out to every month.

    The only thing that changes now is that at the beginning of every month, you will want to make sure to check your email as you will receive your invitation which will include the following:
    -Announcements on the next magazine edition(s) that we are coming out with.
    -Instructions on the magazine(s) such as how and where to go to submit your articles.
    -The deadline on when the last day is to turn in your articles. (Usually 7 days prior the date after the invitation is sent out, that way everyone has a full week to get their articles written out, rather than just one day.)
    -Who the magazine(s) are for. (Which magazine writers they are for.)
    -The private form to submit your articles.
    -How long your articles need to be.
    -And everything else that I know you are going to want to ask me about.

    Other than that, if you have any other questions, you’re always welcome to ask me and I will kindly make sure to help get them answered for you.

    If not, than I hope you have a nice rest of the day, and thank you!

    Millionaire’s Digest Magazine Founder & CEO
