Had an exciting morning, this morning… participated in an event that was called the ‘Battlecat’ -(HeMan) My bro, BC Powder came out with me… we met a bunch of other guys who also participated… it was fun… we run all over town to different ‘pain stations’ -( where exercises are performed.) Then met for coffee and proceeded to get to know one another- and share with each other the love Christ has loved us with… share our stories, backgrounds, etc.

We also have a reunion, today, that we will be attending shortly… I’m a lil’ backed up on packing (haven’t started yet)

Graduation is soon… speech is all over the place 🙂 … but no worries,

Thank You Father for opportunity… helping Your children stay driven, committed, faithful, and obedient, in the name of Your son… Your will be done.

A.M. Devotion

Proverbs 27: 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 18, 20, 21, 23

Psalms 27:1, 4-5, 14

Psalms 26: 12— My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the Lord.

Psalms 26:7- That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all they wondrous works.

26:11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

Wait on the Lord: and be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.


I’m not perfect- I know that much- but that does not mean I am not going to put my best foot forward, everyday… it also does not mean I will not strive to better myself, everyday… or at least be mindful of my actions and the way I treat others and interact with them. Thank You Lord for the breathe of life and direction.

Thank You Lord for Your many blessings… for rich coffee, blueberry min-pancakes, and Your word.

Psalms 27:1 – The Lord is my might and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid.


I’ve always known this day was coming… the day I’d leave my current residence… but I didn’t know and I certainly never was sure ‘when’…today I’m on a very sure ground… that is undoubtedly the work of the body of Christ and the Holy Spirit… there is no other reasonable explanation… Considering all I’ve been delivered through… I still ponder sometimes my mind subject to wander any number of wayward delusions… where fear and anxiety has been ever present… remains an ample opportunity to glorify God- and be refined by the Master Craftsmen… Lord God, You see this thing facing me with my job and I trust this is all in Your hands… thank You for Your strengthening hands and plans in all this… kill the desire in me to do that which is unedifying… Help me keep Your temple holy.

Suck it up bro, yes, it it last as crap- and that’s that… but this is what we do and how we do it..

Thank You, Lord for helping us get home safe. (everyone).. No news is good news- ‘sometimes’… Thank You Lord for helping me prepare the words for this speech… for Your glory… Father God You’ve done gone and blessed me with a house and I’m so thankful… it’s your grace and mercy Lord… who can understand Your ways and how You bless and who You bless and when You bless? I’ve stated time and time again in the beginning that none of this was for, “no reason at all”… it was for everything God has ordained before time… who would not want to press into this… someone without the understanding of what they lack or the desire for a relationship with the Father… but let that man ask from the Father, who will indeed fill you with desire for Him, for relationship, for understanding in all things. Thank You Lord.

Writing-writing-writing- while sitting in my car; just pulled up at the house… brought my notebook with me intentionally so I can hold myself accountable and face myself— I’ve, all the way, been slacking on my journaling… I mean, there is a lot going on as far as transitioning form the house, and with new work hours, but there’s no excuse…

Today is the memorial of my aunt’s passing away and going to Heaven.. the very same day 5 yrs. ago, I left a rehab after hearing the news and said ‘to hell’ with rehabs and proceeded to some very new lows… skinned my knees, broke some teeth, swoll’ my eyes, and all of it (the world) or the cares thereof- worked to choke the life/ Christ out of me… it worked- everything in me died- and when all was said and done- the foundation of Christ which was laid in my heart as a child is all that remained… it took a good while, but thank You Lord Jesus for not casting me away… and Your will for my life. Thank You also for sending the comforter.
