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)))))

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.

Good day, father, It’s Friday, and Your son has the afternoon off.. no class, no nothing, but I feel like I’m sposed to be doing something… go figure… Think I’ma change clothes and head to gym.

Thank You for cultivating me to be a loyal heat… a virtuous man… a man of integrity.

Father, I’m down here with Your kids… I am Your child- we are, all, also with the lost… I was utterly and desperately lost… at least, I was ling as such… I’ve unofficially completed my Core Curriculum class… and the day I officially return to the work force draws nigh… Of course I am excited… encouraged… but I’m asking You, today, Father that You steady my faith concerning my heart condition and fortify this thing You’re doing in my heart… to to be fearful of the faces or the tasks, but assisting me in fully embracing a life lived after You, Father… a life devoted. I’m grateful, Father… and I don’t wanna live a life that compliments the fallenness of this world… when people see me, I pray that my every step exudes gratitude, and that those I encounter in this life can’t help but acknowledge the work God is doing everyday… that He is worthy of praise, that He is glorious, that His presence is undeniable… show me Your ways Father, help me be a good brother to the family… a faithful follower– a soldier.

Sleepy, sleepy, sleepy… and we ‘cooked out’ and everybody is ‘sitting’ somewhere, or lying down… Got out today and drove around just a little bit… oddly enough there was a doctor’s appointment (I’ve had scheduled forever ago.) I don’t think one individual (well, maybe a handful of peeps) were happy to be at work on a Saturday… nonetheless I was there getting a prescription for my feet… what can I say? Some days are itchier than others…

Any whoooo…after making the ‘drop at a nearby Redbox, I made my way home, and spoke to a few people concerning the hurricanes, earthquakes, and eclipse… it’s all so very much intriguing, and yet awful… but Lord– we welcome you. Thank You for helping us be at the ready… Help us not to strive toward those vain glories, but to eagerly await Your return. Family is good, the house is good- life is good- future is filled with a sure hope… and promise…

Thank You Jesus for moving one of the guys to get out there this morning, also… (for F3 work out) It was great to have someone else from the house to participate.

Tell the truth…

wait– patience– let it marinate-

quit living under the pressure of gnats that pump that fake blood-

like their worthy to interrogate your motives-

none are worthy but One-

and He’s not holding You under the gun-

His voice is far from condemning-

isolation is the result of sinning-

even amid the crowd-

no one’s got your back when the resources run out.

Today is Friday

and the static in the air is steadily increasing-

everyone on the coast has the demeanor

that accompanies a bee’s sting-

or one steadily buzzing-

in the vicinity-

Irma swirling, whirling,

countless peoples watching-

the unknown impending-

clouds darkening-

and where is hope-

where is life, where is light-

could I borrow some of Yours…

or here, you could have some of mine…

or did you owe me a dollar or some time?

Yes! I am one of countless men and women who, literally, has dozens of dozens of great ideas every week some of which are actually thought to be great by my peers…  😀

So, the latest recurring idea (disclaimer: I have faith that I will begin work on this sometime in the next 6 months… p.s. I am aware that this is a horrible statement to make in reference to setting a goal, as it is very ‘loose’, nonetheless… I’ve also got faith that no one else will do this beforehand and even so, I would be reasonably elated even if they did…) The idea is a book idea, the subject matter would involve living out our faith, as believers, practically… the whole book would be jam- packed with information pertaining to things Jesus and His disciples would have had to have done during their ministry… such as ‘stretching’… I’m pretty positive that there is soooo much evidence of those practical things that they, (disciples and Jesus), did that tie us even closer to Him, humanly, that we take for granted… (that I take for granted…) that would definitely draw me that much closer to Him… as far as relationship… If it were, that I never did write this book or someone else did (also, aware this statement is another major ‘no no’… when it come to goal-setting) there is a wellspring in us as believers that we do not have to fear of a drought when it comes to ideas… or talents… ideas/life/beauty/talent/productivity…does this not abound in the hearts of the children of the Most High?
