In All Things.....Pray

Through the darkest of dark hours, please let God be your light.

When hope evades like the acquittal of the police killing another black man 

Pray.

When time slows down and in the midst of the storm you can’t find your way 

Pray

When words stumble out like smoke from a flame a tongue that can’t be tamed

Pray

When the world seems to suck all the energy from your space

Pray

When deserts seem quenched and oceans seem dry

Pray

In all days and in all times

Pray

Even when you can distinctly see God’s light

Pray


Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. 
~1 Chronicles 16:11~

The Truth





God will never disappoint, 
but people are sure too always 


If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. ~1 John 1:8~

Shame On Us!

What type of world do we live in?
That a woman can be wheeled out of a hospital, 
In the cold,
And left at a bus stop
In a hospital gown?
What type of person? 
Allows a supervisor
To tell them
“Put her at the bus stop”
And they do it!
Where is the integrity in that?
We are factory animals 
Forging where ever the boss
Tells us to go.
Not letting God lead us,
But allowing sin to kill us.

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. ...

Never allow anyone to dictate who you are or how you live.  Allow God to show you in which way you should go, and follow that path.  The other will surely lead you to destruction.

LOVE



The most magical
Phenomenon we have on this earth

                      Transforming

Can't hold it
Can't see it
But we know it's present

LOVE


Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. ~1 Corinthians 13:7

The Injustice Of It All

It used to be;
If you don't stand for something 
                    You will fall for anything

It has now become;
If you don't kneel for justice 
                    You will continue being enslaved to injustice


Then he went off from them about the distance of a stone's throw and knelt down and prayed. ~ Luke 22:41

The Truth



Beat like Rodney King,
Assassinated like Fred Hampton
Chocked to death like Eric Garner
Prosecuted daily like Angela Davis
Left for dead like Emmett Till
Centuries later and William Lynch still prevails 
Imprisoned like Nelson Mandela
Never really free like Solomon Northup
And yet they still want to keep hate promoting statuses up?
Always having to look back like Harriet Tubman
No place to call our own, robbed of land like in Pierce City, Missouri
Tired of fighting just to survive like Mark Matthews
Making us cry out against injustice like Nina Simone
Blinded by the truth like Ben Carson
Unwilling to stand for anything like David Richmond, Franklin McCain, Ezell Blair Jr., and Joseph McNeil.
Not afraid anymore like Dick Gregory
Our history is everyone's history
Our plight is everyone's plight
We didn't stop then
Why would we stop now?

Keisha


A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. ~John 13:34~

Trapped

Enclosed in a world foreign 
Wanting more so badly
Trapped
Defeat won't defeat me
But I'm losing grip
Slipping away into a life
Is it meant to be
Is what I don't want to be meant for me
Crying doesn't help
Lashing out pushes them away…..faster
Don't go
I want you to stay
Please
Please
Oh Lord, please
Help me find my way
Live my truth
Beneath this skin
Under this soul
Beyond this heart
In the depth of this passion
I'm trying so hard to break through 
I'm trying so hard
To get out of this foreign world 
Blessed will be thy day
When a hand has reached my way
Right when my grips lost
Like suspense in that one movie
Saved at the last moment

I'm waiting





Who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began~2 Timothy 1:9
