A Look Inside My Search

In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.

Prayers for timone #3

from C. Riley
"God our loving father and provider, I thank you for this awesome and most Holy woman Dr. timone. Lord I know that all things are possible through you and I ask you to continue to Bless her as she begins her new journey at Loyola as an assistant professor. Lord this great lady reflects justice, peace, love and hope for all that she encounters. May your Blessings continue to surround her and keep her attentive to your call. I love her as a friend and mentor. Amen."

God is so GOOD!! Sure there are things happening that challenge this belief. But I will not be moved. I have "come too far" and God has done so much that I can only sing God's praises!! As difficult as it can be to carry my cross, doing so is easier than living life without God.

Life in God is my way even as I stumble; even when I fall. Life in God is my way. Thank You LORD for the continuous call.

Prayers for timone #2

Prayers for timone #1 introduces this series of reflections.

from T. Carter:
"God and Gracious God, Thank you for bringing Dr. Timone Davis into my life. Thank for the stretching poking and prodding you have prompted her to do to me. Through the gifts you have given her, she has made me a stronger person. Thank you God for the gift of Timone. In Jesus' Name. Amen."

Becoming our best selves. I take serious the role God has given me: to journey with people and move them along to their best selves. This isn't easy work as it often puts me in the position to say the hard things; to seek the hidden. Most of us want to move on from our place of complacency, heartache, confusion, chaos, boredom, etc. to a place of service to others. We just get stuck along the way. God has asked me to help people get out of the mud, muck, mire. God has asked that I work at moving people past their known to God's unknown. I said yes. T. Carter's prayer is a testament to that work: God's gifts.

I invite you to say yes to the gifts God has given you to serve others.

Prayers for timone #1

On Saturday, 16 May 2015 the Tolton Community celebrated another successful academic year with the End-of-Year Celebration. The prayer service we had featured handwritten prayers from those in attendance for the honored people. I was one of those persons.

I have decided to share those prayers in my blog. Pray with me as I share these prayers.

from G. Spearman, class of 2004
"Blessings and Balance to you today and always. Congrats!"

This prayer invites me to remember that no matter how much I have to do because God is Blessing me, I must seek to have BALANCE. This prayer also calls to the work Orlando and I will be doing on our first book proposal.

Stay tuned as I read a different prayer and write about it here.

I can feel the Holy Spirit moving me along.

Christian Living

Christian Living is in Christ. "Everybody knows that."
But many of us are not spending time with Christ so that we fully understand our own Christian Living.

It amazes me how some Christians profess their love for Christ, yet are too busy with worldly things to spend time with Christ.
It amazes me how some Christians want to grow in faith, yet don't make time to nurture that growth.
It amazes me  how some Christians want to know what Christ is calling them to do, yet don't acknowledge  Christ when He speaks.

Christian Living cannot be done without Christ. Don't you know that?
