Houston is where I was born and raised. My first 15 years of life took place in that incredible city. More importantly, my parents were saved through the preaching of one of Houston’s largest churches, 2nd Baptist, where Ed Young Sr. unabashedly preaches the good news of the gospel. Because of God’s voice through him, my parents began their spiritual journey of growth and sanctification, which they then imparted to my older brother and I.
Houston is where abundant life started for my family. And the intrinsic worth and divine purpose of more lives is now being attacked. Please watch the following video and join me in praying for the protection of unborn children in this city.
I tried learning once... it didn't go well.
Sunday was a great day. For a lot of reasons. For starters, the weather was absolutely stunning. Crystal clear blue skies that were merely intensified by the spectacular rays of sunshine that seemed to brighten everything they landed on; the warmth of the sun on my cheek as I sat outside with a friend over lunch felt like a gentl kiss, romancing my whole spirit. It was intoxicating. It was a great day to be in the house of the Lord, praising Him with His church, His bride.
Church was another reason that the day was extraordinary. We had a guest pastor…from Texas. I don’t know if I have ever mentioned that I am from Texas. His southern twang and use of distinctly southern adjectives and phrases made me feel right at home.
Now, I have been told on a number of occasions that I don’t sound like I’m from Texas. A fact that I am proud of. However, I do appreciate the southern draw, especially when I am far from the motherland.
