Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect. I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, His Word.

Now let’s dress our soul like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY!


“For the LORD Most High is awesome; He is a great King over all the earth.” Psalm 47:2 NKJV

The Color Purple a 1985 American epic coming-of-age period drama, was written by Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Alice Walker. This past Sunday I went to see 2023 musical version of The Color Purple. As I compare them both, I saw areas of abuse, both mental and physical, family squabbles’ full of misunderstanding, dreams of something bigger, and what seemed like unhealable wounds. There were unplanned friendships, visions of a better life wrapped in the hopes of God, freedom from the weights of life, to relearning to love ourselves where we are and the reuniting of two sisters Celie and Nettie. As much foot stomping and heading bobbing as I did, I do have to admit that these movies never fail to tug at my tear strings. In both movies I was able to connect with the actors and actresses who made me feel a part of their roles. They are awesome movies. I enjoyed the new musical adaptation a lot.

Our topic for today is called awesome. What does it mean to be awesome? It means to be someone or something that inspires a feeling of both fear and amazement. Doesn’t this sound like someone we know friends? God commands reverence and respect, He is the embodiment of greatness.

As I think about all the awesome things the Lord has done in my life. I know nothing but God could have done these things for me. I remember how I felt, I remember the weight, as I sat in the dark, everything seemed so bleak and hard. I felt so lonely. But thank God for Jesus, who brought the sunshine. He was the light showing a sista the way!! His awesomeness made a way out of what seemed like no way.

The song, He Reigns by Kirk Franklin, reminds me that no matter what we are going through, the awesomeness of God will always shine through. Some of the words say:

Our God is an awesome God he reigns from heaven above, with wisdom, power, and love. The song goes on to say, you’re marvelous and you’re glorious. You’re love has made me victorious.

We serve an awesome God friend. All through the Bible, we see evidence of God’s greatness, from the creation of the world, to the parting of the Red Sea, to the miracles of Christ, who through his death, burial, and resurrection has ALL power in his hands. Those who leave everything in God’s hands will eventually see God’s hands in everything. Amen.

Remember friends, we are each other’s keeper and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
