I’m Going to the Finish Line!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | June 29, 2021

I read today in my feed of someone who is representing the United States in the Olympics, yet they don’t want to hear the national anthem played, believing it was an affront to them personally. I remember a time when I was barely 21 and I sat in protest when they gave the Pledge of…

I Am Facing A Dilemma!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | June 24, 2021

I am currently facing a moral dilemma – not that I am choosing whether or not to sin, rather how chummy should I be with those who sin. The question of course is WWJD? (What Would Jesus Do)? Could there be an answer in scripture: 10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat…

Hope Deferred May Just Bring Surprises!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | June 23, 2021

We are all familiar with the biblical passage made even more famous when it entered into the public arena when Langston Hughes penned the same words: Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.

Can You Go Through Your Process?

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | June 15, 2021

It is great to receive stirring words of prophecies declaring good things to come in your life. Yet, with every prophetic declaration there is a process that must take place before it occurs.

Whether you know or not, the very God, Creator of the universe came after you like a hound dog chasing a rabbit. No, He didn’t shout you down, or tackle you like a quarterback, but in every way that He could, He came after you proclaiming a love that was unconditional. There was no announcement…
