After spreading the cheese of brotherly love over the plains of his cinnaraisin bagel-  he pondered the road trip excursion he’d be making later that afternoon. Amid restless thoughts of getting high, picking up a prostitute, and going to do a side-job that morning, to earn a few extra dollars… he pulled his bible close, for the early morning devotion he’s done every morning for more than a few months now. (((((note:::::book idea)))))


Proverbs 13:3- He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

Proverbs 13:22- A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children : and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.

Proverbs 13:25- The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.

Thank You, Lord for safe travels, and a safe weekend. Getting me home safe.

Extremely moody at the moment… just swimming in trepidation…for real… I mean, I understand that life is not what it was and I am truly overjoyed… I’m sure of the work God has done in my life… but here and now I’ve just been a little anxious due to the changes in environment with work and moving out soon… God thank You for Your goodness, mercy, grace, and faithfulness.

Definitely passed bed-time-  but shower was mandatory… went to church straight from work, and home from there… Laying down now- and the time to start on speech is way past due… a speech that’s primary purpose (self-imposed) will be to exclaim of the wonderful things that God has done in my life. The speech must adequately thank each of the individuals who played a part in grooming me to be the man I am becoming. If I can manage to deliver two lines a day then I will be making better progress than I am today… it would be more than a truth to say I am procrastinating. So, I’ve stated all of this to say that I am setting goal to start tomorrow… HA! and long term goal of 1 week to have called at least three apartment places to inquire about housing… by this time next week. As for speech- that was a joke… tonight MUST be the night… and the lines:::  The preceding months that have acquiesced to today, transpired, people I’ve met, devotions we’ve shared, there is one undeniable-indisputable fact that justifies every decision that would never ever ever ever have been made under ordinary circumstances. Decisions that were ever so subtle beckoning to turn from any life I had ever known and being instilled with the courage to do so, pursue a new life- unlike that which I have ever known… that fact is the presence of love. Love from whom God is the origin and whom He is……..{{{{to be continued}}}}}

Thank You Lord Jesus, my deliverer and Savior- You have kept me, You alone- have pursued and protected me.

Proverbs 10:7 The memory of the just is blessed, but the name of the wicked shall rot.

Proverbs 10:19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.

Proverbs 10:25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.

Proverbs 10:32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.


It’s almost that time [work]… the weather is ‘muggy’… mom used to say that all the time when we [kids] were younger… The ‘mugginess’ has certainly made for the best slip’n slides at work. (Mud everywhere). The jobs going to get done, today, God willing… Class at 6pm- today is going to be awesome. Thank YOu Lord for Your covering- Your armor and safety… discernment and wisdom.

Proverbs 9:6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Psalms 9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Lord, I need Your grace, I need Your mercy. I am skin and bone and without You I can do nothing…. thank You for leading me in the Spirit by the Spirit… in wisdom in peace in truth… a servant – a priest- that will minister Your word and not merely my own interpretations… thank You for guidance and safety this day. Your grace is sufficient.

Just 30 minutes or so before I peel out and head to the ‘OC’. Just finishing up on a review in electrical workbook. Back to work in the morning… still very excited and holding on to that with everything I’ve got… that’s a lie… holding fast to the relationship with the Lord—even when I screw up.

need to be on the prowl for apartment or house, but I’m trusting God knows this and He will provide an answer… so we’re ‘stack’in’ (checks), getting this probation paid off, and staying plugged in… prepared to serve always… God is good- all the time… and He’s not done with me yet… or my family, or my friends, or my enemies… Thank You Lord for grace and mercy.

Thank You, for bringing me home Lord. You tell me and show me what’s good for me… I don’t always listen, but you never leave me… You want what’s best for me… I’m hardheaded and hardhearted like I just must touch the stove sometimes… Don’t let me live as one storing up wrath, Father… or forget any bit of what’s past–> all that I’ve come through… that You’ve brought me through… thank You for good health… thank You for a heart change… and determination also, conviction–>> to live a life worth living. Your will be done, Father. Thank You for helping me forgive others and myself. Thank You for the beautiful people that are part of my life.
