Article ~ It’s Not About You

18 Then the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things. 19 And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to Jesus saying, “Are You the Coming One or do we look for another?”  20 When the men had come to Him [Jesus], they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to you saying, “Are You the Coming One or do we look for another?”  21 And that very hour, He [Jesus] cured many of infirmities, afflictions and evil spirits; and to many blind, He gave sight. 22 Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have received the gospel preached to them. 23 Blessed is he who is not offended because of me.” — Luke 7:18-23 (NKJV)  When we question God’s love, His power or even the truth of His Word or that He’s real, it’s not often because we …

Article ~ The [Entertainment] Gatekeeper

The New Faces Director Many years ago, I worked in a major acting and modeling agency in the West as the New Faces Division Director (I will keep the agency unnamed). I was responsible for seeking new talent, vetting new talent, and training and helping develop new talent. Pretty much, you had to impress me in order for you to move forward to be represented as…new talent. It meant going forward to introduce models and actors to directors, casting directors, producers, and setting up “go-sees” for models for national and international agencies like IMG, BOSS, LA MODELS, and also, going to Milan, Paris, Japan. You get the idea. I LOVED my job and I was GOOD at it! During my time in this capacity, I was “important” because I had business cards and the card named my title. I WAS THE GATEKEEPER.  I discovered some fantastic talent, met some colorful characters, and made some great friends and colleagues. I opened doors for many aspiring talent and I (unfortunately) single-handedly crushed many dreams of potential new …

Article ~ Yes And Amen

It has often been said that God answers in three ways—No, Yes, and Wait. But have you ever wondered about the dynamics behind “Yes” and “Wait”? I like to say that “wait” is a form of “yes.” But what about telling the difference between a “No” and a “Wait.” How can you tell when you should give up or wait for something in faith? The Holy Spirit does NOT mislead anyone. If the answer is “no,” He will shut the door, comfort your soul, inspire you to trust His leadership, and then lead you toward another direction by opening another door. The one thing He will NEVER do is, “string” you along. When it is a “wait” answer, you’ll discover that every time you want to give up praying for that particular thing, there’d be a stirring in your heart and soul inspiring you not to. Signs and messages from within and outside you will come along at just the right time so that you’ll never lose hope. That’s a “wait” answer. Question. How quickly …
