Embrace the Unconditional Love
Published on July 26, 2021
Good morning my friends,
I took the summer off, to rest relax and refuel for a new school year! Last year many workplaces seemed toxic￼￼! But glory to God in his presence and His word￼ we can be cleansed and refreshed. I even took a vacation! A real one! The first since I was diagnosed with cancer. But GOD!!! Lord willing this November I will be five years cancer-free! Will you pray with me??
So what’s new?
A new book coming out late fall entitled: Sustained: Relationship journeys through turbulent times
More to come on that later. ￼￼￼￼
A fresh podcast launch this fall September 1: Today with Dr. René
A new app for your phone will include daily devotions: Here is an example of one: you will also have the option to listen to myself read it as well

Good morning family,
Do you realize how much you are loved right now? Some of you just woke up and others of you are still sleeping as I type. You have done absolutely nothing but open your eyes another day and breathe.
The scripture tells us “Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:4-5
We weren’t there, in the beginning, to do anything for God to lovingly choose us to be His!
I have to give a shout out again to the Jubilee Juneteenth album again “I’ll never be more loved than I am right now…there is nothing I can do to make You proud..Jireh, You are enough!!!”
Jesus used a teachable moment to demonstrate entrance into His Kingdom. He said it was OK to bring even infants to Him so He could lay His hands on them and bless them. They come in total dependence on the one carrying them, having done nothing but breathe, and eat trusting the one “carrying them to Jesus”. There was nothing to do or prove to gain entrance in His presence or to earn His love! walk in FAITH and TRUST today!
“Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
Luke 18:15-17 ESV
Embrace His unconditional
Peace to you,
So enough for now!!
Here are a couple of pics of my vacation time
