Trial to Triumph!

This past week one of the biggest highlights in the media has been the blunder made by renowned comedian and TV host Steve Harvey. So many jokes, phrases and unfortunately racial epithets have been attributed to the reason he announced Miss Colombia as Miss Universe and not the actual winner Miss Philippines. His mistake went viral causing a firestorm over the majority of social media outlets. So many memes were made, jokes said and negative comments about Steve Harvey’s mistake.

In the midst of this mistake, Steve Harvey remained humble, apologizing profusely for his mistake. Mr. Harvey even said out of his own mouth that he accepted “full responsibility” for his mistake. I think that this mistake not only highlights something most people forget is that Steve Harvey is very human and capable of making mistakes. Not only that, it also showed his humility and genuine remorse. Many people began to question his ability to be a great host, his lack of a college education, and his self-proclaimed being from the hood as reasons why he made the mistake while only a few attributed it to human error. I watch Steve Harvey TV show very often, listen to his radio show and watch him host family feud. Therefore, I am very aware of Steve’s love of Christ and the way he acknowledges the reason he is so successful. God! The way he praises, God! God is indeed good and takes care of his people. Within the past twenty four hours it has been announced that Steve Harvey has been selected to host the Miss Universe pageant again for the next few years. Wow! God is so amazing! Despite all the controversy, naysayers, negative comments, jokes, memes and racial epithets, he was still chosen.
This is very profound! When God chooses you, there is NOTHING anyone or anything can do to stop it!
There will always be naysayers, negative comments, jokes, memes, and even those that question your ability, talent, and so forth, but God will cause you be triumphant in the midst of your trial!

Spring Cleaning!

Spring Cleaning!

Spring has sprung upon us! This is the season that is often referred to as “Spring Cleaning.” Spring Cleaning usually involves sprucing up one’s home, office, car, closet, and so forth. Spring cleaning encompasses getting rid of old, unused things, excess, reducing, and stopping all together.
During this season, spring is very much symbolic of cleansing, renewing, and disposing. Spring Cleaning sometimes takes a lot of effort. So many times it’s difficult to get rid of that pair of shoes in your favorite color that you haven’t worn in over a year, or those blue jeans that used to fit just right, or that sports coat that commands attention from the ladies when you wear it. Or maybe it was a designer purse that you had to have and no longer carry, or outdated electronics, or could it be unused sporting equipment, clothes your children have outgrown, your great grandmother dishes, figurines, Knick knacks, tools; the list goes on and on.
During this season as flowers begin to bloom and we begin to purge of old and unused material things; this could be a great opportunity to rid ourselves of internal junk, clutter, and baggage as well. Internal Cleansing or Cleaning can be the most difficult by far. This would mean for individuals to truly examine themselves, their motivations, thoughts, actions and behaviors. Internal cleaning would require much more of an effort. One would have to be aware, invested, genuine, and sincere for internal cleansing or to take place and be effective. Everyone should do an internal spot check every now and then, whether a person is 5 or 95, internal cleansing can be Soul Healing. I personally, do an internal check quite frequently and have been for several years now. I think consciously speaking it would be difficult not to be aware of any internal junk, clutter, baggage that has crept in. Often times, through prayer, meditation and divine revelation it will made clear and be very apparent of anything that required spring cleaning, internal cleansing or Soul Healing! I invite and encourage you to join me in doing a frequent spot check and rid yourself of internal clutter for Soul Healing!
