Us the Walking Dead

Originally posted on The Notebook Of Ricky Maye:
Us the Walking Dead With acclaimed shows like The Walking Dead and blockbuster movies like World War Z, the discussion over the zombies and the living dead have been running rampant over the Internet and many water coolers. But what if I told you I didn’t think…

Scars (by Ricky Maye)

Scars can be painful, what I mean to say is that scars can ultimately be full of pain, even after the incident occurs. Scars don’t solve, they usually are prone to bring more questions to the surface. Scars don’t resolve, they often offer more confusion, and the questions begin to follow. Why me? Why not … Continue reading

The Leading Father (by Ricky Maye)

Since my early days in church I’ve often been told I had to relate to God as a father. I just couldn’t… See, I never knew my father, he caused my mother horrible pain and left our family to fend for itself excelling us into a deeper poverty and depression. Amongst all of this constant … Continue reading

Renewed Year (by Ricky Maye)

As this New Year has begun, I can truly say I am not anticipating it; at all. I am, however, hoping for a renewed year. A year of rekindled desires, relit flames and a spark of passion for those things I once had a passion for. My hope is that a passion you may have … Continue reading

A Journey Into Discussion* (by Ricky Maye)

That night I was to meet a friend at his home to discuss some recent throwbacks involving his upbringing. We sat on the couch simultaneously. Just as Quick he began to speak. “It was the divorce.” He began to rapidly pant, explaining that he had a picture perfect childhood. That is until the divorce. He … Continue reading

Laying it Down (by Ricky Maye)

In the book of James there is a verse that traditionally reads like this, “Confess your sins, one to another so that you may be healed.” James-5:16 I’m sure you can see how this has played a part as legalism in some of our denominations, churches and many different religions around the world. When looking … Continue reading

Baggage (by Ricky Maye)

Dual baggage. A few years back I was on a flight to Michigan and I saw a weird act of kindness. While checking in at the self check in (because it’s quicker!) I laid eyes on a family who was over their carry on baggage limit by one bag, and they were arguing about which one … Continue reading

This Beautiful Place (by Ricky Maye)

We all have reasons to give up, life tends to seem unbearable at times. Purpose and fulfillment have those moments where they seem scarcely unattainable. We all have those moments when we just want to walk away from everything. Jesus is our prime example and on occasions we see him walking away from his current … Continue reading

Where is God? (by Ricky Maye)

One of the Hebrew names used for God in the Old Testament is Ha-Makom which means “The Place.” This idea of God sometimes can seem to limit the omnipresence of God since our view of a place is one-sided; an example of this is that if God is in this place he must not be … Continue reading

Life in a Crowded Room (by Ricky Maye)

Life is crowded and loud. We are all searching for company; this is why major book stores and places like Starbucks become so profitable. People sit for hours doing things they could do at home, but in public. We are social, we are seeking; all looking for something. Yet sometimes all I hear is noise, … Continue reading
