Healing Rain – I am not afraid!

This morning as I was listening to the song “Healing Rain/Let it Rain” by Michael W. Smith, I was overcome by compassion for so many people. A lot of people came to mind, starting with myself. It is a song that carries so much healing power and a lot of people would benefit from it.

I believe we all want the same things – faith, hope, and love. The need for these ideals manifests differently in our unique individual lives. But in large part they are at the core of who we and they shape our lives; our joy, our fulfillment, our dreams, and our families, and our legacy.

Take the first step

This morning I woke up at 3 am because I was too excited to sleep! I was thinking of recording my first video to post on Youtube. Okay, a little background is needed here…

I believe God has imbued me with a passion to inspire people, especially the youth to pursue their dreams, reach their full potential and live a life full of faith, hope, and love (1 Corinthians 13:13).

When God plants a seed; which could be an idea, a calling, a need to reach you out, whatever it is, it is very hard to ignore it. Continue reading
