Breath of Life


In the same breath we speak of love

we speak of hate toward others

In the same breath we speak of peace

we speak of war

In the same breath we speak of friendship

we speak about our enemies

In the same breath we speak of kindness 

we speak unkind words and gossip

In the same breath we speak of obedience

we speak of disobedience

In the same breath we speak truth

we speak lies

In the same breath we speak gently

we curse

In the same breath we judge

we are judged.

The Breath of life is a gift for life. Act on purpose in your heart and choose your words wisely.

Nugget of truth: “Set a guard over my mouth lord, keep watching over the door of my lips that I may not sin against you.”

Psalm 141:3

What’s the point of Complaining?

quiet time2

Have you ever noticed in life,

no matter how much you complain,

some things remain the same.

We all have a habit of complaining about something we are unhappy with in our lives. Life can be very daunting and troubling at times, but complaining and refusing to make a decision to change the quality of your life will only keep you in limbo. Expressing frustration and sadness due to your circumstances will not bring about the change you seek to live a new reality.  To complain is to express feelings of pain, dissatisfaction, or resentment of something going on in your life. Its a displeasure and if left to fester can be a habit that is really hard to break unless you take action. We all have moments when we are unhappy about our journey we are experiencing from day-to-day. As the days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months, years later, with all the complaints nothing has truly changed.  We always find excuses for not accomplishing our goals. To add  fuel to the fire, we find others who would listen to our complaints and when given any advice it sometimes fall on death ear. So what can we do to change our thinking in order to promote a season of change?

I’ve asked myself that question many times as I searched for answers as to the riddle of my life’s purpose. Thus I am also guilty as charged. Through my writing I am constantly asking myself the tough questions and experiencing the change I’ve been searching for through the power of prayer. For you it might be something else that is boggling your mind. In order to promote a season of change the most important thing you can do is to meditate, soul search, pray and ask God to point you in the right direction. The next step is to take action and stop complaining about the things you are unhappy with in your life and focus on the positive changes occurring right before your very eyes. Make a decision to let go of the past while moving towards a new future. Commit to a project that will move you forward whether in business , Education, or a new life adventure. Get on a path to discover your full potential and start enjoying your life.
