The book of John. Verses 1-18 are in my opinion some of the most important verses of the New Testament. It tells who Jesus Christ truly is. His identity is defined and is not to be misinterpreted. He is not a great prophet. He is not merely a wise teacher. He is not the angel Michael. He is not a man elevated to divinity through acts of works…. He Is God….Always was, always has been and always will be.
“No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”
John 1:18 NIV

“If your law had not been my delight, I would’ve perished in my affliction. I will never forget your percepts, for by them you have preserved my life.” Psalm119:92-93
- I honestly don’t know how I was able to do life before Christ. The things that I have gone through since giving my life to Jesus, I never would’ve been able to persevere without Him.
- Contrary to what people think, being a Christian is not easy. It does not grant you immunity from life’s trials. If anything it enhances them!
- Let me explain…Before Christ I was oblivious to the spiritual consequences of my actions so I didn’t pay attention to them. Sin was normal, so when trials arose they didn’t weigh heavily on me. It was just life. I was going with the flow and as we know, it is easier to go with the flow of the current then to go against it.
- And that’s what happens when you say yes to Christ. You go against the flow of the world, so now you face resistance that before you never encountered.
- And if not for God’s law! If not for my delight in his commands! If not for His promises and faithfulness!
- This new life in Christ I have would’ve resulted in my ruin and demise.
But truly I tell you… He has indeed preserved my life 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾. Thank you Lord 🙏🏽❤️. #salvationinJesus #God #Jesus #Holyspirit #love #mariage #Christian

There is so much in this world that we cannot control. So much that is unknown. So what do we do? Do we develop anxiety and feed the unknown. Or do we cast our anxiety onto a KNOWN God? Anxiety is a stumbling block that keeps us distracted. In great time of anxiety or stress let us work towards worshipping God. In those moments seek the Kingdom and let your thoughts be on heavenly matters. Let God worry about what we perceive as the “unknown” trust when I say it is KNOWN to God. And that we can TRUST in. ❤️ #kingdombusiness #trust #God #Love #Jesus #Holyspirit #idefinefatherhood #marriage
Why is the gate narrow? Because there is but one way. There are no secret passages or hidden gates. Jesus is Truth! And Truth isn’t dependent on the thoughts or beliefs of people who’s emotions and ideas shift from one day to the next. Follow the path that he has set before you. And let not this world entice you to stray. Blessed in the one who trust in the Lord, who delights in his statues. Blessed is the one who seeks the Narrow Gate. #Amen #Blessed #God #Jesus #Holyspirit #love #truth #marriage #christian #idefinefatherhood
The greatest thing any parent can do for their child is teach them about Jesus and bring them up in His ways. #parenthood #changestartsinthehome #love #marriage #Jesus #God #Holyspirit #idefinefatherhood
Being patient can be hard. It can be VERY HARD. Especially when things just don’t seem to be going in your favor, but we must remember that God is in control and his timing is PERFECT. Being patient and waiting on the Lord is one way we show our love and faith in Him. We are acknowledging His power and believing that His promises are indeed YES and Amen. If we say we trust in Him then let us demonstrate our trust by TRUSTING in Him. 🙌🏾 #patientlywaiting #love #God #Jesus #Holyspirit #christian #idefinefatherhood #marriage
Despite circumstances we must stand firm and always give ourselves to the work of the Lord. Whether that’s regular bible study, evangelical work, mission trips, watering seed or planting seed. Continue to abide in Christ and be prepared for service. We all have Kingdom work to do! 😁😎🙌🏾👌🏾 #ourworkisneverdone #love #God #Jesus #Holyspirit #marriage #christian #kingdomwork #idefinefatherhood
Let us not dwell on what is temporary, but instead let us focus on what is eternal. You are a part of God’s plan. You have a role to play. You have much to contribute. Cast your worries on the Lord and continue in the work that he has called you to do. #Jesus #God #Holyspirit #invisible #love #idefinefatherhood #marriage
This is what it’s ALL about. This is what we call a LEGACY. This man changed my life forever. It wasn’t so much what he accomplished as it was the example he set as a man after Jesus heart. As a man who loved and cherished his wife. As a man who loved and instilled wisdom into his children. My father in love was an amazing man who reflected the light of Christ in all he did. We honored him this past Saturday with a 5k walk that celebrated all those who blessed others by donating their organs. I love and miss you dad. I can’t wait to see you again…although I can wait a little bit longer 😉 lol #fatherhood
