Standing The Test

It’s only God that plants potential in our spirit as we try to figure out what we are supposed to do in life.

Stand The Test 4


An old statue remains in the middle of a town square and year after year, it deals with the elements. Walking by to admire the craftsmanship, I pause to reflect on the crosses I too, bear….

Stand The Test 2

Like a pillar, I stand in the site of God asking only for forgiveness. With my determination, I must proceed. My commitments are never-ending. Blessed, my integrity stands the test of time. And now, my life has been complimented. Only God could have made my miracle happen – the re-emergence of a “love child” of the eighties – a love I never knew.

But what is my point? Closely observing the statue in the middle of town square, one realizes that within ourselves God has given us all the ability to create anything we want. Be it in the form of dreams or prayers, our creativity is derived by our Father in heaven. After all, He only wants the best for us, like any father’s wishes.

We do fall short, though, at times. As a baby learns to walk, we face our tribulations. I’m not a trained writer, or so I thought. I’m dyslexic, but it was God that put me up to the challenge. Feeling a bit like Moses, I have no idea of my potential. After all, I don’t think I could part the Red Sea!

It’s only God that plants potential in our spirit as we try to figure out what we are supposed to do in life. Think you may be too old to change? Better not! Biblically speaking, not one was young when they left their mark, “As it written…”

God loves us all. There is no bias or supremacy in His eyes. We are equal, as humans, in His light. We have the reserved right to reach for whatever it is that we can dream. Like Isaiah, we just never can conceive our own possibilities. He, too, realized that God had made him with unique characteristics and a special purpose – to serve him and proclaim His news.

As Dawn awakes, the sun rises from the East. A miracle of the morning, we are blessed with the capabilities to go out and conquer the world, just as God so intended. Be not afraid! I was scared to death too, but it didn’t stop me. Keeping my faith, I wouldn’t be swallowed. I, on this bright sunny morning, pray for all that step out and make a change in their own lives to the glory of God. Pray for the direction and faith to walk in the mysterious miracles that God holds for each of us.

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!
