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?

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

How Do You Know God Is Real?

Someone asked me how do I know God is real.  He said "how do you know if you have never seen Him, heard Him, or felt Him?"

God is everywhere, and in some of the simplest places we over-look, God is there.  He's in the sunrise or the alarm clock that wakes us up in the morning.  He blessed us with another chance of proving ourselves as "Heaven Worthy" by giving us another day to be the best reflection of Him that we can.

God blessed us with air (oxygen) that filters through our lungs, blood, and body keeping us alive to spread the word of His amazing love.

He is in the energy we use to get us through difficult times and what seems like impossible situations.

He is in a smile or thank you from a stranger or loved one

He is in the song of the birds that sing and fly above us

He is in the flower pot that was bare for years and now blooms flowers of my favorite color, purple.


If you acknowledge
If you listen
If you are still
You can see God everywhere

Romans 1:20
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

Acceptance


How do we accept people for who they are?  We look at our own faults...

Romans 15:5-7
Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God.

Luke 6:42
"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye.

1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

Matthew 10:40
"He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.

Having God's Eye

I feel the pain and hurt of others
Some people are able to block it out
And worse turn away as if it doesn't exist
But it hurts me deep in my soul
knowing a child somewhere is being made hard
A little heart turned to stone cold ice
Because others are selfish and evil
A heart that may never warm
that may grow into the person
that hurt them once before

A belly full
Fully aware that a child hungry
Is eating crumbs from the floor somewhere

A heart full
Fully aware that a child cries
From the scares hidden deep down inside

A soul full
Fully aware that a child needs God
hope, support, love, and unconditional care

Imagine a world in which every person
Nurtured that responsibility
No darkness for children
Life is full of that on its own as an adult

Imagine a world in which it was all clear
That instead of being upside down
It was upside right
That no one had a blind eye
That no one blocked out
The truth of this life

Ephesians 5:7-14
7 Therefore do not be partners with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”
