TOUCHING HEARTS, CHANGING LIVES

TOUCHING HEARTS, CHANGING LIVES

Yesterday, as I was driving for Lyft here in The Woodlands and Conroe, I had the privilege of giving three college ladies a ride. I was taking them to a wedding which was a good distance away. We had some great conversations and laughs, and here is one convo I want to share with you. We were talking about Christianity and how it is perceived by others. We had a lot of fun even though some of the subjects were really deep and serious. One lives in Ft. Worth, one in Dallas, and the other in San Diego.

We were talking about touching hearts and how some Christians, (religious folks), tell people what they should be doing and sometimes they just plain judge them out loud causing even more pain to the individual. That’s just plain being the devil’s advocate and it can crush their spirit even more. That’s what he does to them all the time already. Are we going to add to the pain? They really need to know they are loved and need hope in that moment. Unless they ask for advice, it might be better to keep it inside until the opportunity arises, if and when it does. Perhaps we need a better relationship established before they let us in, if not, it could be like water running off of a duck’s back. It could also push them away from the One who created them and really loves them, giving them a false idea of Who He really is.

Do we remember where we were and how we were doing before giving our hearts to Jesus, Him filling us with His love, and changing us? Or, were we pushed at Jesus that same way in fear of judgment? I remember hearing a lot of hell, fire, and damnation and it took me a long time to get over the fear it instilled inside of me. I was afraid to come near Him for a long time and it took a lot to get past it. It is His kindness and love that leads us to Him and helps us to want to change our ways. It is His kindness that helps us know that He’s not going to smack us, but rather, that His loving arms are open towards us and His are the greatest hugs we’ll ever get no matter how far we’ve run from Him or what we’ve done. I wrote the song STILL from my own journey.

BROKEN TO WHOLE

BROKEN TO WHOLE

There’s that SUPER DREADED word again, BROKEN! I hate it with a passion and I see so many others there and just want to heal them instantly. Just about the time we get things sewn together, someone else comes along and rips a greater hole, it seems. It’s like that graphic song that came out a while back, STITCHES, “…needle and thread, gonna get you out of my head.” We were so wonderfully and delicately created and put together by the Lord in our mother’s womb. Psalm 139. We were created to be loved! Whole! How do we get there? Is it even possible?

True Love cannot exist without True Freedom and that freedom starts in the Spirit. “Who the Lord sets free is free indeed!” John 8:36. He also heals all of our wounds in our spirit, soul, and body, if we allow it. Sometimes our own words and doubt erase or hinder what He can do. Been there, done that so many times! I’m still finding those broken pieces and trying to stitch them back together. There is scar tissue there and some callouses. Just need the oil of the anointing to be massaged into those areas, healing! Yes! Read more

STARTING OFF ON A NEW JOURNEY!

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF JOSEPH JAMES!

Welcome friends, fans, and guests. I’m starting something new today and we’ll see how it goes. I might have to course correct along the way, but that’s the fun in going on an adventure into the unknown. It’s been a long time since I have seriously written in a blog and I’ve done so much since. So, here goes! Welcome to the journey! I truly hope it blesses you.

I have so many things to share with you so that I might be able to encourage you today, give you some hope, perhaps some tips to make your life easier, and maybe some stories to help you in your journey. I’ve been through a lot of stuff, traveled quite a bit, and accomplished a lot of things. So, here goes! Are you ready?

I’ve been given a new lease on life and it’s changed everything. I had a seizure and a minor vehicle accident on March 8, 2024. It stress-fractured five of my vertebrae. The good thing about this was that it uncovered an eight mm cerebral aneurysm in my head between my left ear and eye. I was a walking time bomb with it just waiting to explode and kill me. I lost two months of my life in and out of the hospital, five visits, twelve days, and am almost fully recovered. It’s all repaired now and I am free to continue my Life Race! I’ll go into more depth in my following posts.

Where are you at in your journey of life? Are you running for your God-given Life Dream? Are you in the throes of despair and depression? Are you in a romance or recently broken up? Is your heart in pieces or mostly healed and restored? Do you have your own business or perhaps no work at all? Is life easy for you and you have fun things to share or is life so difficult, you feel so overwhelmed? Read more

DREAMER’S INK TASK FORCE FORMATION

2021!!! Here we go…

Going to start off this new year here in Boerne, TX where I began last year in Colorado Springs, CO before the pandemic/feardemic shut everything down. We welcome your prayers as this is an ongoing battle to get through all of the hoops.

I am putting the DREAMER’S INK TASK FORCE into full throttle and we’re going to save some lives. This is Texas and no, we haven’t shut down. There has been too many deaths related to the shut downs and isolation that the media doesn’t even mention. I’m looking into places to hold these meetings, the Bevy hotel in Boerne has given me a good rate and I want to find some places in the neighboring areas as well, including San Antonio.

Suicide strikes without warning, one day we are talking to our friend, family member or peer and the next going to their funeral. I’ve had enough. The pandemic has only made this worse.

You can start your own Task Force no matter where you are with your family, friends, and/or work place or I can come and help you get started. Read more

Dreamer’s Ink Meetings

In the next coming weeks, I am looking for a meeting place where we can get together and talk about dreams, you know, those God-given dreams and plans for each of our lives. How can we find them? How can we help each other to fulfill them? How can we build His Kingdom together, both spiritually and in the physical realm as well?

You see, His Kingdom is about everyone of His people coming together at His leading so that He can place us where He wants to build. Some leaders are more focused on how their people can help their vision, but what about how we can help Father fulfill His vision with each of us individually? This means not just in ministry, but in the marketplace as well. Not putting down any group by any means, but rather, going a bit further and including all… I talk to so many who want to be a part of the big picture but have been so limited.

Anyway, if you would like to be a part and you are in the San Antonio area, let me know, or I can travel to your area as well. Perhaps we’ll do the meeting via Zoom at some point if others in other places are interested as well.

The Lord had me write and publish a book, Dreamer’s Ink, last year to help those struggling with direction and purpose to counter depression and suicide. It’s mostly a book of questions for each reader to help them think and search inside. We will be using the study guide somewhat as we help one another in this Dreamer’s Ink Task Force, based on Hab 2. Write down the vision…

We are using the America Dare To Dream Tour to do this across the nation and beyond. Through all of our individual giftings and talents, just think of what we can do together to spread His love to those around us. If they can see us together, perhaps they’ll taste of His goodness and want to be a part… What say you?

You can check out this book and the itinerary on this website and use the form to contact us. Blessings…

EVENT INFORMATION | https://www.facebook.com/events/148201769396480/

We all need some clouds in our day to have a beautiful sunset, but sometimes the temporary storms are too much. Then we need some help to walk through it. There should be no shame in needing help, as this shame isolates and magnifies the problem.

God’s Restoration

Sometimes we get separated from people we’re close to, and sometimes lose touch and wonder where they went, but when it comes to a family member, it can be traumatic. I lost touch with my daughter when she was two weeks old. It was the one and only time I’d see her until… God’s Restoration! That restoration birthed a song in me that helped me navigate the journey when the connection was restored. 27 YEARS AGO.

GREATER THINGS

Great. Mathew 18:3! A child believes everything as they haven’t been tainted by deceit yet. If we can get back to that innocence, by choice and His grace, we’ll be able to see what He saw and do what we see our Father in heaven doing, because He went to be with His Father and sits next to Him on the throne interceding for us. If, by choice, we do what we see Father doing, we’ll go from victory to victory like Him. Early this morning, as I was in and out of sleep, I was shown some things in the Spirit. GREATER THINGS…

ON COMMON GROUND

Over the last 5.5 years, we have traveled the USA, Canada and Alaska, going where the Lord told us to go with my business paying our way, with the exception of a small amount of donations. We’ve experienced many miracles in the journey and lots of divine appointments when we arrived at our destinations. We mainly stayed in Hilton brand hotels over the last four years, giving us Diamond Status for those four years. We’ve seen a lot and experienced a great deal more. It’s one thing to turn on the news to see what’s going on, it’s another to be there in some of it. Believe me, the actual sometimes has little to do with what’s reported. Even in the churches, there’s a lot being said about those on the outside that’s simply not true in many cases. If we are ever to make any kind of long-lasting difference in our generation, we’re going to have to refocus. ON COMMON GROUND…

Building A City

There was once a wealthy man who wanted to build a city for his workers to honor, care for, and to protect them. His workers had built many elegant and strategic projects for him, so he wanted to help them have a place of their own to rest and have fun without fearing the raiding parties of evil that lurked in the surrounding mountains. At various times of the year, the raiding parties would sweep down out of the mountains and do much damage to the area cities and harm the people. Building a city…

Eliminating Fear

Fear is the destroyer of dreams and everything good and eliminating fear is of utmost priority. Out of it comes all kinds of evil, greed, murder, envy, jealousy, hate, etc. These are all born out of fear. True Love conquers all fear, but how do you get it? How can one overcome the fear in their life to live the dreams they were destined for? It’s a journey…

Taking Advantage Of Every Opportunity

This year has been one of many twists and turns, up and down in some uncharted territory. As each door closed and pretty much hit us in the face as it did, another opened, but not what we were hoping for. The entertainment business and ministry can be difficult just on their own, but mix them together in outreach and it can get really complicated, quickly. Folks have their own opinions about ministry, but adding entertainment to it, and some just freak out.

TO THE TOP

It’s not the prevailing circumstances that necessarily define a person, rather, it’s what they do in/through it. Tough times come on all, but some press through and overcome, while some give up. Storms only last for a while. If all we can do is hold on through it, that can be enough. Sometimes we get the benefit of walking with others through the storm. No matter the company or not, we must set our face to the wind and by His grace we can endure it. Many want to know who this God is, but unless we embrace the hard times, needing His help, perhaps we won’t know. It’s through the hard and seemingly impossible times that I discovered more about who He is, than in the easy times. Just a thought or two. Blessings in your journey.
