Ramblings of your average Christian

Tonight, i have this feeling in me to praise the name of Jesus and give thanks. It really is hard to describe. There is no rhyme or reason. I did not hit the lottery. My health and the health of my family is good. Today was just filled with little events that when totaled together show me the love that Christ has for myself.

My youngest daughter (kyla) was taking a nap earlier and as she was laying next to me i began to really look at her face. It was so soft, peaceful, and perfect. It was like looking at her mother (though some say that kyla actually looks like me). I remember saying thanks to God for sending me such a gift. Kyla’s first year on earth was not easy. It took numerous trips to the hospital and lots of prayers but she is now a healthy baby.

Just before kyla took nap, we were all watching tv in the living room. I was laying on the floor watching tv when all of the sudden nyah (4 years old) jumps on my belly; gave me a huge hug and kiss ans say “i love you daddy”. As quick as she jumps of my stomach, she jumps off as proceeds on her way.

I have never been one to question the existence of God. I do not need to see him to know that he is out there. There is no need to have a conversation with him. To put it in words that kids would understand; if i never got a text message from him i wouldnt be heart broken. When the lord sets up my days as he did today, well, thats all the proof i need that he is out there.

I pray that you all have experienced days like this.

In Jesus name,


Life is good EQUALS not talking to Jesus

My life has been going very well the last few months. By the grace of the lord, i am now attening school full time with a graduation date of may 2012. PhD here we come! My kids are healthy, my marriage is rock solid, i have quality friends, and even joined a fraternity i have been wanting to for the longest time. Within the last couple if weeks, we have even purchased a new car. Life is good, but the nights have been quiet.

I am ashamed to say that as my grace increases, my conversations with christ has lessen. I am embarased about this.

I associate this laziness with being back in college. Place yourself back in college and remember all the good times you had. now think of the days of exams, needing money for books, or running low on money on your food card. When times were good, you never called home yet when times were rough, mom and dad were alays the first person you reached out to. Even when you do call them when their is no problems, the conversations are short and impersonal.

That is where i am right now. Im not proud of it…in fact it is very embarasing. With a silent prayer, i ask lord jesus that you forgive me for not reaching out to you in my times of prosperity. I am who i am because if you.

What are some tips you can give in having a continuous conversation with Christ in good and bad times?

We are all royalty because our father is the king of kings,


Do you worry about life?

I wrote this in 2005.  This was a time when i was just starting to get back into a relationship with the lord.  I have always known him.  But just like any other person who has walked on the face of the earh, as I got older, I prayed and talked to him less and less.  In 2005, life started to be real.  I got married, started a family, bought a house, etc. etc.  Then something happened that made me a nervous wreck.  I couldnt eat, sleep, interact with anyone.  I was a shell of myself.  I then started to wrtie my feelings on paper.  It was soothing but still the sleepless nights came.  It was then I asked my wife (girlfriend at the time to go to church with me).  At church, I never felt so alive.  How could i be so dumb and not allow myself these feelings for so long!!!

Sometime after thatr visit, I wrote this on my journal.  I don’t remember exactly what i was feeling at the moment, but reading it still has a comforting effect on my soul.  I do remember writing this after meditating on what God would be saying to me if we were face to face.


Please son, do not worry in life.

Always trust me, even though I am not in sight.

Problems & troubles continue to arise,

temptations & sin comes always as a surprise.

Remember that life is not always easy,

My son Jesus is the perfect example.

They laughed, hurt, & lied to him;

Yet, his love was endless and still.

He died on the cross for all of Man’s sins.

When the devil attacks you;

He will come at you from different angles.

Just remember to trust me;

And soon you’ll be in greener pastures.

I will never leave your side.

You are my son.

Surely a father always watches his son.

So tell me all your worries & worry no more.



I know its not perfect.  But it did its job in showing me God’s love that day.  It shows me God’s love even now.  I pray that it will help out somebody out there as well.


In Jesus Name,


Christians know the truth, yet do not follow

As Christians, we know where our ultimate destination is…HEAVEN.   We believe that by accepting Jesus Christ as our lord, song of the living God, and through him our sins are forgiven.  HEAVEN IS OURS!!!


My question is..If we know this, why do we still love living an earthly life? We worry about making our life fomfortable here, yet neglet our life to come.  I do that everyday.   I worry about earthly problems so much.  My priorities are not in order.  I am working to hard for my earthly life and not hard enough on my heavenly life.  ARE YOU DOING THE SAME THING?


Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where theives break in and steal.  But store for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, ahd where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will follow

Matthew 6: 19-21


In Jesus we are all cleansed,


Why be an undercover Christian? Live life!
