God and a New Friend

I’m back……My apologies for my hiatus to those who have visited my site over the past few months. A lot has transpired in my life during this time. I have undergone and recovered from total hip replacement surgery. I have been through periods of extreme depression and have had to fight off the demons that have plagued me for most of my life.

God has been doing some miraculous work on me, he is and has always been there for me in my times of need. He has directed me to a new friend who is anointed with the Holy Spirit who, along with my wife, sister-in-law and niece prayed over my broken body and spirit to drive away the devil and his lies. For some time now I have been dealing with bouts of doubt about my worthiness. This doubt was placed in my mind by the enemy, the devil. He has been working on me for awhile and thanks to the session with those who love me I think that his hold on me has been broken. It is ironic that on this Easter Sunday the day that we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…….that I too was resurrected from the pit of despair. I feel like a new warrior of God. His power surges through my veins and I know that he has good things in store for me. I now pray every morning for the Lord to watch over and protect me and to direct me in what he wants me to do for him each day.

My new friend Linda has opened my eyes. She is one of the truly blessed people that you could sit and talk to all day and wonder where the time went after you were through. I call her a renaissance women, she is my sister-in-laws friend who along with being anointed by God has the ability to excel in many different disciplines. Thank you Linda for praying over me, and caring enough to help enlighten me so that I might continue on my journey. I truly believe that God directed me to you and that he has given me access to yet another resource to complete my mission.

I want to end today with a devotional message the Linda shared with me that is quite inspiring. Enjoy


Hopelessness is just an illusion, my beloved warrior. I am your hope, and your future is in My hands. Just as I parted the Red Sea of hopelessness for Moses and My chosen people, I will part your sea and you will walk in the promises I have for your life. Don't allow the illusion of the enemy to become reality. Fires will never burn you out; raging waters will not drown your dreams. I am bigger than any challenge you are facing. Now, My Warrior, fight the temptation to give up, and allow Me to walk you into a life filled with indescribable hope for your future!


Your King, your hope

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Isn't that the way God does things. First, confession, then blessing.”


  1. I think that is awesome Mike! and I LOVE Linda too, she's great. God bless

  2. Mike....I'm sitting here in the "big chair" you sat in on Resurection Sunday and found that Jesus, is Alive and Well! I couldn't help but smile the entire time I read your Blog. I'm so proud of you and shouting VICTORY as you and your sweet Teresa step out and claim your rights as a child of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Great days are ahead for you and your family. My prayers are with you daily and I'm excited about the days ahead....good days, blessed days, and days of unbelievable change! God Bless

  3. Mike, I am glad your heart is rejoicing once again. Life is truly good.

    I love you all.
