What I have come to realize is that the weary is not necessarily revived by a ‘feel good’ word. Often times, she needs to come face to face with what might be perceived as a harsh truth, only to realize that it is the antidote to break the grip of that depleting, debilitating, burdensome issue that intends to cheat her of life as it is meant to be experienced!

NUGGETS FROM MY SECRET PLACE  I have never met a person who underwent greater torment and bondage than the man who lived among tombs in the region of Gerasenes. No one was strong enough to subdue him. He cried night and day and cut himself. When that demon spirit saw Jesus, it shouted, 'Jesus, don't torment me.' Mark 5:7. What is tormenting you today? Relationships? Finances? Failure? Fear of the u... See More

NUGGETS FROM MY SECRET PLACE  I don't have to look very far to observe that there are many famished souls-- souls that are so parched and drained of life! But they remain in that state, wandering in the wilderness of past experiences, dead religion and fruitless ideologies knitted to the mind as they fumble through an age of information overload. The enemy of their very souls have managed to veil t... See More
