Quote of the Day

Leaders have used the word visitation when describing an encounter with God’s presence, whether it was on a corporate basis, or an individual basis. The Lord desire is not a VISITATION; rather, He seeks a HABITATION.
 ~ A Heart Ablaze, John Bevere

Quote of the Day

As I prepare to go to my second rehab session for a recent knee surgery, I realize there's a life's lesson in the making. I am not looking forward to the session because the previous sessions left my knees and legs feeling very stiff and sore. In the session, I had to push my knee against weights of resistance.  This strategy is for the purpose of strengthening the knee. When adversity come our way and "go against" us, those very things can be used to strengthen our faith in God and draw us closer to God. So here's my LIFE LESSON & the quote of the day:

You may have to GO THROUGH discomfort and pain TO GET TO your healing & blessings. It may not feel good, but it’s all working for your good
Real talk - not looking forward to today’s rehab session. LOL!

Fathers--Every now and then take your daughter on a date. Show them how a man should treat them. You will teach them not to accept degrading, disrespectful, and demeaning actions from a man. Here's Earnest and daughter leaving for a "Father's Day" date.

Quote of the Day

An important ingredient to ministering...allow yourself to be ministered by the Word, songs, testimonies you bring forth. What you share is not only for "their" deliverance, but also for "your" deliverance.

Playing in Every Key - Practice is the key.

1) Practice your scales every day, every key.
2) Try learning songs that are in other keys AND practice the songs you know in other keys.

Long time ago,I took the song "Thank You Lord" and begin playing it in every key. I did the same with "It Is Well", and also modulated up so I'll have that skill conquered too. Now I am not intimidated by songs that are in the Key of E or A, although they are not my most comfortable keys to play in.

Be blessed!
Earnest and Roline
