the confidence an OPEN DOOR births



It all appeared to be completely random, but I’m a believer and I know, like I know today is Monday, that ain’t nothing random. Not one thing in our life is random, yes, we make choices. We choose to step to the right or to the left, it is within that choice that our destiny begins to unfold. And so it begins. A visit to the doctors office with a close family friend. My almost obsessive desire to read, every single magazine, in any doctors office, that has fallen into the grace of my company. Due to my prior life of reading every single magazine in any given doctors office visit, so I could decide which one I was going to steal. Yes, a little serial single copy magazine thief was I. This is my trash. This is me exposing my trash to you. I just opened the super black bag and now, even you can peep in. So, while fiercely reading an not so ancient article in Southern Living, my curiosity is peaked about Lowe’s and Rosenwald Schools. The article had a photography spin to it. The article stated just how many schools are left in the south. My interest is yet peaked again. So there I am in the doctor’s office, ripping out (so as not to steal) the entire article from this not so ancient issue of Southern Living. Article safely in the O so little purse, I am now super eager to get home to my Internet connection for more digging. After the digging, I start calling and one of my calls, leads me to the very place. A Rosenwald School, right here in my town. Camera in hand, off we go. I could feel the history of the ground, as I stood there, soaking in all that GOD had done in one day. An education of a life time by 2pm. HE set before me an open door, that no man could shut. An open doorway to a path of a life filled overflowing by the journey of an opening  without a door. That no man can shut, even with all of our trash. Do you get it? Jesus loves you in spite of your trash. Amen.

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
