TiNY EyesTiNY Eyes

TiNY Eyes is an extraordinary book about an extraordinary virtue in Christ Jesus. It explains the process of obtaining true and sincere humility before our great God, that special place in the center of his will. So few people make it past his presence which is such a wonderful thing, we get awestruck and we should. But, there is so much more beyond this. If you desire more of him desire to walk in true – sincere humility. When you do he will take you straight into his heart. • Faith gets you into His promises • Relationship gets you into His ear • Intimacy gets you into His presence but True humility gets you into His heart – the heart of God – the center of who he is.

Small Precious ThingsSmall Precious Things

We must learn to see our hands in God’s hands in the midst of trying situations; God’s perfect hands imparting the help that our weary life worn hands need. And when we think of weary life worn hands we think of the trials and tribulations that the individual had to go through for their hands to look that way; the experience they have learned from all their labor under the sun. They humbly put those hands to the plow completing the work of the kingdom. Small, gnarled, hardworking hands – two small precious things that reflect experience enveloped in the beautiful perfect hands of our Father. Experience and godly wisdom spiritually colliding in a set of hands – wisdom – tough yet gentle, like daddy’s hands. Wisdom – experiential knowledge guided by understanding then applied to practical matters and some not so practical when it comes to spiritual things; the experience of your hearts activity; the mind as the heart of your spirit, the center of you

Double Rainbows in the SandDouble Rainbows in the Sand

God promises in his word to bless us and based on the book of Zechariah he promises to doubly bless the remnant. God is not a man that he should lie. If he said he would bless us, and promises to do it, you can count it done. The book of Zechariah is a small little book with great and mighty blessings of God; not just blessings but great things. It speaks on the greatness of our God, his anointing, his holiness, his power, prophecy concerning Jesus, his presence, his blood, his return, the restoration of Jerusalem and so on. God promises to bring his people out of captivity, restore, doubly bless them and allow them to possess the land. He’s giving them utter and absolute victory over their enemies and that includes us y’all. So much treasure, hidden manna buried deep inside, a treasure trove just waiting for the taking. This book is teaching us how to be blessed with a continual flow based on all that treasure.

Appointed by GodAppointed by God

This devotional contains short stories, thoughts, letters and notes that reflect my love and devotion for and to our great God. These words were penned directly from my heart. He has pulled the curtains back and allowed you, the readers, to see into my very soul. While considering the information contained in this book, I asked God this question: “With this particular devotional Lord you are actually allowing the readers to see my heart, how come? Shouldn’t it be more of your heart that they see?” And this thought occurred to me: “The Psalms show the heart of David not the heart of God although they direct you back to our great God. They reflect his good times, praises for our God and his sinful times where he poured out his heart before God in repentance. They include his times of going through and some of his darkest days. He wrote of his times of running and hiding from Saul, he wrote of his weak moments, he wrote of his struggles, he wrote of his joys, triumphs and victories. He wrote when his faith was weak, he wrote when his faith was strong he just wrote from his heart. The Psalms really reflect the love, honor, respect, and faithfulness for God that was in David’s heart. He wrote about what he was experiencing at the time from his love for God. He poured his heart, his love for God into his writings even when he was going through trials. The heart of David is in the Psalms that he wrote although inspired by our great God. David truly was a man after God’s own heart… through David’s heart in his writing’s you CAN see and experience the heart of God.” King David, thank you for showing us God’s heart through yours… I pray as you read and experience the words contained herein, that you can feel and sense the heart of God through these pages.
