I just had to share this message with you today:

I was in my kitchen this morning thinking about how God requires us to always forgive others no matter what they have done – no matter how painful, hurtful or disrespectful the whole matter turned out to be. I have no problem with this at all – was just thinking. Then, a question came to mind as I thought about everyone whom I had forgiven over the years (went before God and sincerely forgiven them) for some really heavy stuff and how 99% of them never came back to me and even ‘asked’ for forgiveness. I realize that some people (professed Christians especially, it seems) will know that they have done some really bad things to someone else that hurt that person’s feelings or betrayed them in some way, and purely due to pride (because they…

My 40 Day Spiritual Fast – the best 40 days of my life!

The Official Website of No. 1 Bestselling Author Tanya R. Taylor ™

I have integrated the “discipline” of fasting into my life for many years now and believe wholeheartedly in its power to produce incredible results. When we fast for spiritual reasons, we are humbling ourselves before God and demonstrating that we recognize we are nothing without Him and can do nothing without Him. We are displaying our dependence upon Him in every way and amid the situations we face. Chapter 21 of my book: Seeing Beyond the Natural, Student: Me … Professor: Godgives much insight into this discipline and how it can greatly benefit every believer.

Here’s an excerpt:

There are some circumstances in life that command a “take the bull by the horn” sort of approach in order to break down giant obstacles and barriers of delay. The discipline of fasting doesn’t appear to be something that is regularly taught in Christian churches these days, yet it is one of…

On My Father’s Birthday: A Letter To The Man Who Killed Him

TALES FROM THE MOTHERLAND

Dear Sir,

I don’t know your name, but you killed my father on June 9, 1973, in Stockton, California. My father was thirty-two years old then; I was ten. If he had lived, he would have been 74 on November 29th.

The year my dad ws killed The year my dad ws killed

I am a 51-year-old woman now; my father has not been with me for most of my life, and yet I still feel his presence; I still miss him. When I was ten, and he was killed, I hated you. In fact, I hated you for many, many years. Somehow I got it in my head that you were a drunk driver and killed him while driving drunk. Perhaps someone told me that, or maybe it’s just what a child creates, to make sense of a senseless world. Admittedly, that story helped me for a while. It gave me a place to focus my…

Open letter to the parents of Michael Brown

This is so very true. God bless you for taking the time to write this Chris.

Chris Martin Writes

I don’t even know where to being.

I can’t pretend to fully understand your loss and pain. Being a forty-two year old white male in America, I haven’t experienced the harsh realities of society in the ways you have endured. That, in itself, would be a heavy burden to bear. The loss of a son makes it even more overwhelming.

I am a father of two girls, and can’t imagine losing one of them to such a tragedy. We, as parents, are saddled with great responsibility the moment they enter this world. We protect. We nurture. We discipline. We love. We envision grand dreams for our children, unsure if they will ever obtain them. We never anticipate outliving them. It’s an old cliche, but it’s so very true. A parent should never have to bury their own child.

As I watched the events unfold Monday night, my heart broke. I…
