“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God [Word]. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountiain, ‘Be thou removed’, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” ~Mark 11:22-23
Hey everybody… this is just an encouragement to say, if you have dreams, go for them! You really don’t know what will work for you until you try. I still do my thing on politics and other topics of controversy. But I also have a philosophic side.😏😁 So, here is the thought for today.
“He who observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child, even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.” ~Ecclesiastes 11:4-5

Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3… Deep reading. Of the many chapters and verses in the Bible, these are amongst the most profound.
Both poetic and timeless, these scriptures are forever applicable in the everyday life of Man. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…” –the chapter starts. Right away, as a reader, I feel that there is a purpose for my current circumstance—good or bad.

I was researching on line and saw this information on Black Planet’s ‘NewsOne’ site. It’s a video of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” Speech. I think 2011 is the perfect time for us to focus on our history more. Remember: It’s good to know where you’ve been to fully appreciate where you are and where you are going.
The Proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: –Proverbs 1: 1-5
Ever wanted a sure source of good advice?
The book of Proverbs is a collection of writings which is filled with great advice and divine wisdom. I had been on a quest for wisdom and had sought God for answers. I was led to the book of Proverbs. While skimming over the chapters, I realized that there were 31 Chapters in Proverbs (one for each day of the month)…how cool is that?
When I am faced with difficult situations or I wonder about the whys of it all, a verse from Proverbs creeps up in my being. Read More
