Happy New Month! It is the beginning of the last quarter of the year. What a year!
Personally, I had a good but rough start. Looking back at the beginning of the year, I was soooo excited! So full of anticipation for the new decade. Then, one day, my body was not feeling right, and I went to the doctor just in time! I was dealing with about 4-5 different health issues at the same time. I had to change my routine, eating habits, implement meal planning and so on. I had to change my schedule, really stick to my planner, cut back on some activities, say NO to some things and rest. Yes, I had to ensure that I was getting lots of rest.
I had to take it very easy (and still do), be calm and avoid stressful situations. Looking back, I think that God was doing a reboot in my life. Most importantly, I had to make a conscious decision to take care of me, fight for my life, be still and to leave everything in God’s hands. I discovered that it is not everyone who knows or understand or can adjust to my new normal, but I must do what is best for me. I am thankful for all the persons who prayed and encouraged me as I go through this difficult season.
I have truly come this far by faith; and if it was not for the Lord on my side, I do not know where I would have been! Just when I was getting my head wrapped around everything……the corona virus global pandemic happened. And I kept asking God, what are you doing? But Glory be to God! I am still here! Now, I realize that it is all a part of the boot process, specifically MY boot process. There were many individuals in the bible who rebooted their life…Noah, Moses, Naomi, Ruth, Paul and the list goes on and on…
During the month of October, I would be doing a Proverb-a-Day CHALLENGE.
The book of Proverbs has 31 chapters and October has 31 days so we will read a chapter a day. For example: October 1st – Proverbs 1 or October 16th – Proverbs 16. A reminder will be posted each day on my Ministry Facebook page, so you stay on schedule. Then, when you are done reading, post the verse that has impacted you the most. Let us glean together 🙏
Rebooting Your Year Book
I published an e-book called “Rebooting Your Year” that is available on Amazon Kindle. Be sure to purchase your copy soon.
Here are some Ministry Updates:
SERMON “GOD OF THE WILDERNESS”
Last December, I preached a message entitled “God of the Wilderness”. I think more than ever, this message is crucial for the times we are living in right now. You can listen/watch on my YouTube channel or Facebook page.

My Holding on to Hope Weekly Devotion has been an inspiration to many. The testimonies keep pouring in! A new video clip is published every Monday morning on my YouTube channel or Facebook page. Here is one of the latest devotions.
