Satisfaction by LaRonda Coleman

I asked readers and authors to write a short story or poem to this prompt: His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. He began to speak.

*Disclaimer- Mature readers only.

His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. Her eyes tracing over the silhouette of his lips. She hardly noticed she was biting her bottom lip. In that moment she felt an oddly familiar sensation breezing down her neckline, following the course of her pulsating veins…hunger! She began to imagine kissing his lips, caressing his frame as he pulled her closer and closer. Returning the kiss, he gently stroked her nipples as they pierced through her blouse. She began to tremble. Her legs became weak and in that moment he led her to the couch slowly lying her down. His fingers gently gliding down to her thighs maneuvering his way to her womanhood. Slowly he inserted his fingers deep inside as she took a long, deep breath. She could no longer contain herself as she reached the peak of orgasm. Tears of pleasure streaming down her cheeks. He slowly begins to kiss her, sliding his tongue between her lips and into her mouth. As they kiss, he penetrates her with his swollen manhood. She whispers, ‘Oh God, thank you. I have so missed this feeling”. Paige! Did you hear me? he asks.

Book Spotlight – A Place Called Down – Dr Velma Bagby

We can come to believe that our walk with God will only be filled with mountaintop experiences, but Dr. Velma Bagby reminds us that in fact, God can also order for us A Place Called Down. It is not always because of evil, but God the refiner, who allows this season of suffering to burn off what He cannot use. In this book, Dr. Velma brings us into her own testimony of tests, trials and tribulations to offer a view of this place and how our suffering can feel – Isolating. Difficult. Lonely. And more. Commit to come out of your place of suffering with something – joy, maturity, faith, strength. Although the theory of Newton says, “Everything that goes up must come down”, God Word teaches that everything that goes down, will come up with the same resurrection power that raised Jesus.

We can come to believe that our walk with God will only be filled with mountaintop experiences. 

It is a place of suffering, where we experience difficulties at various levels and intensities – illness, tragedy, death, loss, financial troubles/mortgage/rent, unhealthy workplace, job loss, divorce, infertility, miscarriage, pandemics, single & waiting, and more. In this place called down you can feel – Isolating. Difficult. Unyielding. Helpless.

It is not always the works of evil, Dr. Velma Bagby reminds us that in fact, God can also order for us A Place Called Down. If you enjoy books written by one of her favorite writers in this genre Max Lucado – You’ll Get Through This, then you will enjoy A Place Called Down. 

In this book, Dr. Velma deviates from relationship-focused topics to bring us into her own testimony of tests, trials and tribulation, to offer insight into the low place. She describes a place which is not fun or easy, but by its very nature can be likened to a refiner’s fire. A fire so hot that it burns away all impurity and that which is not useful to God. Yet, even in the place called down, there are what Dr. Velma calls rainbow moments where God uses the kindness of others to inspire, encourage and uplift you during those down places – simply to remind you of what you already know – He is with you and He has not forgotten you. 

A place called down is common for us all – the question becomes, how will you handle it and how will you come out of it? Commit as Dr. Velma did, to come out of the place called down with something: maturity, faith, strength, joy. Decide now that you will yield to God’s plan and leave with gifts that only this place can produce. Get excited because something is going to change in you through a down place: your faith level, your perspective, your preaching, your understanding, your gift, your relationship with God. God will change you in the down place and you will come out better.
