SOUL FOOD

March 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

Job 23:12 “I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have kept the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.” Over the past year and into this new year I’ve been on a super-scientific quest for better health and nutrition. Meal plans? Check! Gym classes and boot camp? Signed up! […]

HUMAN NATURE

February 23, 2018 | 0 Comments

Whether giving props or throwing shade, Jesus being God and man, knew not to take people too seriously because he understood their waveringly inconsistent nature. Better yet, Jesus understood that the only one that matters in life; to cling to, set expectations for, be hopeful of, trust in and depend on is God the father. […]

SAFE AT HOME BASE

Growing up in the suburbs of New York as an 80’s baby and outdoor kid, we played a game called Tag. This game consisted of three or more kids running around a playground. One kid temporarily held the status of “IT” and the IT kid had to chase the other kids around and touch another […]

IT AINT MY FAULT

February 5, 2018 | 0 Comments

People are quick to point out what is wrong, who is responsible and why/how they should be punished. To play the role of prosecuting attorney, lead criminal detective and judge all at once is a lot to manage and probably a conflict of interest. So why bother at all? I thank God because there is […]

FLU GAME

January 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

January 2018 has been reported to be one of the worst flu seasons in recent years. Even patients that dutifully received a flu shot in 2017 have gotten sick this year which is a bummer. A cold could leave, return with a higher fever and in some cases, patients have been hospitalized and even passed […]

RADICAL MANIFESTATION

Happy New Year Faith Rockers, Whether you had a stellar year full o­f achievement or can (at best) can only check off 365 days of survival, the success of the former is all a matter of perspective. While it feels great to have completed and published my first God-inspired book, in hindsight, the writing was the […]

IT’S ALL PRACTICE

January 15, 2018 | 0 Comments

One random morning at work, I sat in a conference room meeting fidgety, biting my tongue as an IT Contractor criticized my work. I was angry and embarrassed. Her harsh criticism in front of team members and management was unwarranted. I thought to myself, “is she in a bad mood today? If her criticism was indeed […]

GRIND ON PURPOSE

December 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

Someone once said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans,” but I was taught that in order to succeed you must have a plan and stick to it. If I pursued my passions, completed college and stayed on the grind, success would be knocking down my door. I journeyed cross-country at […]

THE CHURCH IS NOT DEAD

December 1, 2017 | 0 Comments

The thunderous sound of a Black man protesting, “Save Harlem Now”, alerted passer-byes that we were walking on Harlem’s ground and that the community will not be moved. On the corner, stood a line of international tourists waiting to get inside the historical Abyssinian Baptist Church. In the era of new age thought and religion, […]

HOW TO HEAR FROM GOD

September 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what He will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this. Habakkuk 2:1-3 God wants us to live a life of purpose, according to His plan. Yet, with so many distractions, it’s easy to […]
