look beyond


During a recent flight, I sat quietly looking out the window and had the following thought:

Since the weather was cloudy and a bit rainy, the pilot decided to go above the clouds for a smoother flight. Then I saw it, we had reached an altitude where the colors seemed inverted. Let me explain. At first, we flew among the white clouds with the blue seas beneath us but at a higher altitude, the clouds fell under us and all around were nothing but hues of blue.

This made me think of birds. When we see the flocks fly by, they are usually in the first perspective, clouds above and ground below. There are, however, a few species that go beyond flying; some birds soar.

To soar is to go above the tempest. Flocks of birds fly, but the several species that soar at higher altitudes do so alone. It is there above the clouds, in that moment of soaring alone, that we can appreciate an entirely different perspective.

Sometimes we are called to soar.

But they who wait upon the Lord will get new strength. They will rise up with wings like eagles… (Isaiah 40:31a NLV)


Life is Sweet

Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! 

Psalm 34:8 (NLT)

Dream Big

Dreaming is free, but making it a reality takes work.

Do both.

It Was Worth It ☔️

Good Day

Let’s make today a good day. Yesterday passed and tomorrow is not promised, all we truly have is…TODAY.

Releasing History & Reaching Out For Destiny

img_5501Consider this: is it possible to a drive a car forward if we only look through the rear view mirror? Of course not, yet we often do that in life. I am guilty doing it. The enemy tries to use our past in order to keep us from moving forward to the things God has planned for us. There’s an old saying that goes “When the devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future”. His fate is sealed, he has been defeated, he’s just trying to drag as many people as he can along for the ride. Perhaps it’s a good day to let go of the past and reach out for what’s to come.

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead (Philippians 3:13 NLT)

Sight vs. Vision
