According To His Purpose| Reflection January ’18

Inside Cup

The scripture for the month of January is almost over and I’d like to talk about what I’ve learned. 🙂

(NIV) Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

This month I’ve been working on daily prayer and reflecting on a particular scripture. I did not visually look up this scripture daily. I think for next month I’ll add the scripture on an index card, and post it where I can see it daily.

I believed God would use this scripture to teach me, but I didn’t know how.

He has been teaching me a lot about His timing and not giving up even when things seem hard, or when I get misunderstood. Each time, I’ve felt something relating to these circumstances I’ve thought about this scripture.

God will not hurt me…

The Lord Stands Far Off (Psalm 10)

The Lord Stands Far Off (Psalm 10)



According to, 151,600 people die each day, 6,316 people die each hour. Wars all over, groups isis killing people. Normal everyday people getting cancer. Bad things happening to good people. It’s part of living in this world. It’s a sad truth. Why does it feel that God isn’t in the picture of any of these things? On Saturday, I met my dad after 18 years. I’m 24 years old now. I met my sister and my aunt. Pretty cool, but this is something that a-lot of people in the world are faced with, a-lot of people don’t know the other story of their family history. It’s reasonable to think, “Why is God so far off in this situation”. The fact is, God isn’t far off at all, he is very interested in your situation and so much interested that he inspired David to write this song, just for you. Continue reading

pexels-photo-129112.jpegGovernment Shutdown (Psalm 9)


Yesterday was the US Government Shutdown. Last time this happened, the shutdown lasted 13 days. This time it’s happening and people in the military are wondering if they will see their pay check on this next pay day, which is 10 days away. One side blames the other side in all this mess, because no deal can be made. I’ve been watching and looking into the news on this government shutdown, because I am an US Marine and this government shutdown effects me and my brothers and sisters in the Corps. So, what does any of this have to do with Psalm 9? You came to get a Bible study lesson, not an recent news lesson. I want to point out a few things within Psalm 9 that is related to a Nation that no longer wants God in the picture. Continue reading

Real Truth in Real Time

Hey everyone, sorry I haven’t been on lately with the Psalm devotions. School and work, have been wow this past week.

I wanted to talk about something really fast. We all know about the preachers who live in million dollar houses, fly jets and just live like kings.We can almost look at them and just think, “What, Why is that preacher living like that? Why isn’t he giving all that money to the poor or towards ministry?” Jesus said that we need to stop looking at other people and look at ourselves.

I want us to look at ourselves for a minute. Let look at where we live. Our houses with A/C and Heaters, an kitchen, back yard, electricity and the House it self without all that is a master piece.

Now Look at other places like India and Africa, No A/C, No Heater, No Kitchen, they never heard of an back yard, and we got water, we play in water, they don’t got water. In some places water is like gold.pexels-photo-462358.jpeg traditional-african-houses


We are Rich people. Before we point the finger at those preachers with nicer houses then us and with jets, we need to see were we stand on the scale. How much do we weight?


India VS USA… $1 = 64 Indian Rupee

Africa VS USA… $1 = 360.00 Nigerian Naira (One of the states of Africa)

Me and you are wealthy people in the worlds eyes. We can’t be looking at these millionaire preachers and try pass judgement on them. When we  ourselves are pretty much in the same shoe there wearing.




Question of the Week (Week 2)


I know it’s Friday, little late in the week for this. But Yet’s reflect on the most important question of them all. As we enter into 2018, what are you doing to keep a close relationship with GOD?

So For me personally, I find that as I keep on posting an new devotional on this website, it helps me keep my eyes in the word and not in the world. Also, I turn on worship music whenever I have an chance to. Lets face it, 2017 was the year, busy busy year, we just got through the most busiest time of the year, christmas and new years. It’s time for some of us to finish the school year, others may have started an new job. Life can get busy, but lets not get so busy that simply turning on christian music throughout the day is no longer an option.

So, I would love to Hear your Answer below, What are you doing this year to stay close to GOD?

The Best Investment I Ever Made


The Best Investment I Ever Made


As a kid I would go around cutting grass for $20, most kids did that until the world got more dangerous. When I got older, I took business classes in school, because I didn’t really know what I was going to do in life, I thought, maybe start a business, you need money to live in this world and business makes money. That was my thinking. I remember at the end of 12th grade staying up all night, trying to make an business plan to destroy the world largest retailer, Walmart. Continue reading

1 Samuel (9) Pt. 1 | Hannah’s Vow- Samuel’s Prophecy (Ch.1-3)

Inside Cup

The next book of the Bible we will covering begins Israel’s desire to be like everyone else.

They wanted a king.

If there could be an overall theme here, I think it would be obedience. We will see obedience in Samuel’s mother, and later her son Samuel. David’s obedience. But we will also see disobedience from the first king, Saul, and Eli’s sons.

The book of Samuel, originally, was one whole book but has been broken into two parts, thus 1st Samuel and 2nd Samuel. The Greek title means, “Books of Kingdoms.”

Consisting of 31 chapters, let’s begin. 🙂

What is Mankind that God knows about us? (Psalm 8)

What is Mankind that God knows about us? (Psalm 8)


Think about space for a minute. Earth is floating in space right now, not just that, earth is inside the milky way galaxy. Which is one of billions galaxies in space. Our galaxy is 100,000 light-years across, according to this article. If I remember correctly, 1 light-year is 600,000 miles. 600,000 * 100,000 is 6.E10. That is our galaxy alone. There are billions more in all shapes and sizes. Not to forget, a big empty spot in space. Know with that in Mind…
