Black Pearls Blog Tours: Still Not Satisfied by SA Brown

Black Pearls Blog Tours: Still Not Satisfied by SA BrownChristian Goodman loves the ladies. So when an old girlfriend calls, it’s game on—until her play forces Chris to the sidelines. While there, his grandmother and best friend lose faith in him. With no one left, Chris turns to a psychiatrist and finds Dr. Devin Rainey in her own struggle. 

Chris enters her life only to serve as a reminder of what she is missing, thus, creating tension between the two. She fights to remain professional but personal needs blur the lines. In the end, Chris turns to an unlikely ally as he learns why he is Still Not Satisfied.

Excerpt from Still Not Satisfied:

Moonlight illuminated the room as Chris stumbled into his bathroom. He admired his silhouette as he walked past the mirror. Even his muscular frame was sexy in the darkness. Chris’ self-admiration was interrupted when he noticed a small figure reflecting in the corner of the mirror. His mind had always played tricks on him, and lately the occurrence had been more consistent. As always, when he looked over his shoulder, nothing was there. This time would be no different.

When he returned to his bed, he found himself alone. His lady friend had dressed and left without making a sound, but she left a note on his nightstand.

We really should stop this.

Chris chuckled. “That’s what you said the last time and the time before that.”

Chris spoke as if talking to her. He crumpled the note and lay back on his poster bed. Deep down, he knew she was right. As he stared into space, he hoped he would sleep peacefully this night. Just one night without the dream. Please, just one night.

Some men are handsome. Some men are charismatic. Christian James Goodman was both. Standing at six-foot-two and 220 pounds, Chris was simply beautiful. His chiseled body and broad physique got him a lot of attention from the ladies. His warm smile and mocha color added to his style. His hazel eyes simply perpetuated his swagger while his strong baritone voice made the women yearn with desire. Yes, Chris had several physical attributes that men would pay money for and the confidence to put them to use.

Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler...

It's that time, y'all!!! The parades, the balls, the parties, the beads!!!! Throw me something, mister!!! The music--a genre of its own. It's Mardi Gras, folks. So let the good times roll...

I didn't know a thing about Mardi Gras until I attended the University of Southern Mississippi. All I knew was I was getting two days off. So yeah, roll on good times!!!!

So, friends, enjoy your Mardi Gras. Just remember why you get a Mardi Gras and what it means to you as Christian. What are you giving up since you are "doing what you wanna" today?

Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ--His suffering and sacrifice, his life, death, burial, and resurrection.

Try Something New

Maybe it's time to try God. Not "God" the Philosophy. I'm talking about God, the living Creator of the universe. More than a concept. He's a Person, a Deity. He's someone who knows who you are and where you are. He's someone who cares about you, your life, your questions  Maybe this is your time to make a connection to God that will meet your deepest needs. Maybe this is your time to get to know Him.

It's time...to try Someone different.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Next, the attempts...

Something isn't complete between you and God but you're not sure what you're missing. Perhaps you've thought: I've lived a good life. I try to be a good person. I obery the Ten Commandments (mostly). I am nice and don't steal or kill.
Yes, you're a good person. You try to to be the best you can be; try to do what's right most of the time; try to do more good than bad. So why do you still feel this void? You may even have tried more drastic ways of dulling your pain: sex, drugs, buying new things, going to fun places, hanging with the 'in crowd'. And for all of your trying, there is still something missing. You are still not satisfied...

First come the questions...

Why am I here? How do I beat this loneliness? What makes life so hard? Where is that one special relationship? In times like this, you feel like something is missing, something is wrong in your world. Perhaps, there is something you haven't done or someone you don't know but should. Then you feel you've found it, maybe in a relationship or in a new purchase or in a vacation...
But the feeling never seems to last. Every relationship, even the good ones, leave you with a hole in your heart. Something isn't right but you can't find it or fix. So you keep looking, trying different things, not realizing that nothing in this world can satisfy you. So your search continues...

Deo Soli Gloria,

Needing Him...

For the next 15 days, I would like to share with you something that has helped me these last two weeks. Compliments of Need Him Ministries...

Is God a mystery to you? Are you unsure of what He thinks of you or what He expects from you? Need Him Ministries and I want to help you know God.

He reveals Himself through the Bible. There you learn that God wants a permanent relationship with you. 

I hope you will join me on this journey.

Deo Soli Gloria,

SA Brown
