My Inward Journey

Thank you for visiting my website.

I was asked by the Holy Spirit a few months after surrendering my soul to God to walk with Him as Enoch did. Because I did not know what that meant and did not even know God, I did not respond to His invitation. Over the years, He has reminded me from time to time. The question kept resurfacing in my mind: who am I that God should require me to walk in the same manner as Enoch? In what ways can one emulate Enoch’s behavior? In addition, I considered it to be a privilege reserved for a select few, so why and how would I accept such a narrow concept and way of life? The lesson I learned is that I was wrong and that God desires all of us to walk with Him just as Enoch did.

As far as God was concerned, he knew that at some point in the future I would be able to say yes wholeheartedly. Additionally, I learned that we must undergo a training process in order to learn how to walk with God as Enoch did. There is a heightened degree of intensity and purpose to it. Leaving behind laziness, loving Him passionately, and making Him your sole objective in life. All are part of the journey. This does not mean you are holier than thou. But, it means an intense and undivided walk focusing only on the lover or your soul. The path is narrow. While you are not lonely, inwardly, you are aware that you are alone. Regardless of whether you are with family or friends, this is true. In light of the fact that this is an inward journey, it makes sense. You are still used by God intensely, but you are no longer scattered throughout the world doing what you want, or what you think may please Him. In your role as a servant, you are more guided in your focus.

I discovered the fellowship of the unashamed at the same time I was asked to walk with God like Enoch. I was unable to connect the two due to the pain of being in the wilderness. By 2012, I realized that Enoch had nothing on this pastor when it came to the fellowship of the unashamed. There is something inside me that cannot be described when I read it. In a close walk with God, I find myself longing for that life, yearning to be that close to Him and to live purposefully for Him. As a result, Christianity has become for me what you might call “serious business“.
My journey is truly one in which I am alone. There is nothing wrong with being alone. It turns out that if God had His way, we would all walk with Him as Enoch did. It is not intended for a select few, but rather for everybody because God wants it to be this way.

Fellowship of the Unashamed

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power.

The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.

My past is redeemed. My present makes sense. My future is secure. I’m finished with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudity, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer and labor by power.

My pace is set. My gait is fast. My goal is heaven. My road is narrow. My way rough. My companions few.  My guide is reliable and my mission is clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, pander at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I’ve stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give ’til I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He’ll have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear!”
