INSPITE OF ALL I'VE DONE...

I'm going to go a different route with this one. I'm going to start off with song lyrics. This is Lookin' Out For Me by Kirk Franklin, one of my all time favorite songs by Kirk.

Remeber when the doctor said
He said he couldn't help you and
Remember when the money was gettin' low
You're hurtin' now your feeling low and just
When you thought the night would never end
The sun came out now you can smile again
Jesus you keep on lookin' out for me


You keep on lookin' out for me [3x]
In spite of all I've done
Jesus you keep on lookin' out for me


 I'm a living witness that in spite of all I've done, Jesus keeps on lookin' out for me. If you know should have been dead and gone, you should have been filing for bankruptcy, you should be in jail...it's not the "universe" that's making this happen. It's the creator of the Universe. The one who reigns over the earth. The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Jesus Christ the King.

We live in a generation of people that are scared to preach Jesus. That are scared to preach the gospel. And these are the same people that quote, "I'm not afraid of the darkness whom shall I fear if God before me. What shall we say to these things. I'm not afraid anymore." We talk about it, but now is the time to be about it. Faith without works is dead. That simple.

I said in the last blog that greater is here. We just got to believe and receive it. There's an old song that says, "You just trust and believe/and when you ask you shall receive/whatever you want/God's got it/Whatever you need/He will supply."

And I'm spent.

Stay Saved,

When the enemy comes in like a flood---

Hello Hello once again coming from the Greenwood Public Library. I left my head phones at home so even if it did allow me to listen to music...ah well. Again no music for this one. Let's move.

I'm getting  more and more irritated at the fact that we spend more time bashing and criticizing and not praying. We got to pray for our leaders. I'm talking from our pastors, bosses, all the way up to the President. Bashing them isn't going to change a thing. I heard it said that prayer changes things. Prayer changes things. Let's be about it then. I put up a status on my facebook that we got to be about it. We talk a lot of stuff while at the same time ain't about nothing (double negatives I know, but who's blog is it? I thank you. Plus I was raised in the south, give me a break.) I'm learning more that talk without action is just talk. You know like a presidential debate. All talk and no actions makes a good politician....I believe that's how it goes. But back to the point. I believe the Bible says, Life and Death lies in the power of the tongue. What are we using out power for? Life or death? Recently, not going in to details, I used the power more for death rather then life. My anger really got the best of me. The Bible says be angry and sin not. I got the angry part down, but the sin not part is where--

There's a song that was sung when I was coming up in the church that said, "God's got a blessing for you. God's got a blessing for you. If you want it, reach up and grab it. God's got a blessing for you." Regardless if you know it or not, God is moving. God is blessing right now. All we got to do is live right and believe in what God says. I believe that that miracles signs and wonders are not on the way. They are here. There's a song out that says, "Greater is coming." Greater is here right now. We just got to believe and receive it.

I'm going to share this. On my Tumblr an individual asked me about my beliefs regarding homosexuality. Telling me that it's a fact that it's not a choice. Telling me that it's hateful to be against homosexuality. Basically saying that homosexuality is natural. And here's how I responded:

 "I think that its not hateful being against something that one has to come out and say that you are. I don’t have to come out and say that I am mixed. You can see it. You can see Clinton is white. You can see that Jackie Chan is of Asian decent. let’s get this straight, I do not hate gay people. What they do in the closet does not affect job performance or anything else. Also I am not against love. I believe that a man can love a man. I believe a woman can love a woman. Its the sex that I have issue with. That’s all. Let me precurse all this and say I am a Christian. I believe the Bible and what he says, and the Bible says for God so loved the world. He may not love what the world does but he loves the world. Like a parent. A parent, a true parent, loves his or her child despite of what they do. May disagree with what they do but that should not affect the love for the child. God bless."

Now was there anything disrespectful in that? I tried not to come off as disrespectful, but apparently this individual didn't see it that way, saying that I was "blindly following the Bible." That's when the conversation ended and this individual was blocked. I play and clown around about a lot of things, but one of the major things I don't play with is the Bible and food, but mostly the Bible. I believe homosexuality is a sin just as I believe adultery is a sin. Sin is sin. And if the Bible says its wrong, I'm going to say it's wrong. I'm not going to degrade gay people as I've done in the past cause I don't want to be degraded. But wrong is just wrong.  I've never been one to follow trends or fads. So if everyone says that being gay is natural and there's nothing wrong with it, and I'm standing alone saying it's wrong, then so be it.

I didn't mean to dwell on that, but I heard from  a preacher recently that we as saints have been too silent when it comes to things not of God, and I'm not trying to be silent anymore. I believe it's written that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord will lift up a standard...

I'm LEARNING

Happy Black History month my readers and judgers! Why black folk got the shortest month of the year? I don't know, I'm mixed...

No music today, in the library, and the streaming media is blocked. Straight to it.

I'm learning to think before I speak. I'm not going to say that it's working 100% of the time because I'll still unleash some mess from time to time, but again I say, I'm learning. Gotta take baby steps people that's all I'm saying. There's a little song I learned when I went to this daycare, Sunshine Learning Center, which was a Christian based daycare and they taught us, "Read your Bible, pray everyday and you'll grow, grow, grow." Corny kids tune, but the words are true. Now my knuckle head self as a joke I used to reverse it. Like we did the movements and everything. like when you grow we elevated ourselves and when we shrank, you know we...shrank...get it? So me as a joke, when others grew, I shrank and when they shrank I grew. Look don't judge me on what I did as a child...I've been ignorant a long time folks. Pray my deliverance in the Lord.

Moving on, that's what I've been trying to do lately more. Reading the Bible and praying more. Now when I pray, I don't pray like the old mothers at a convocation. I do as the old hymn says, "Have a little talk with Jesus, tell him all about our troubles." I believe some people get a little fearful when they're asked to pray or asked about their pray life. Cause some "saints" believe that if you don't pray like them, then you ain't praying. If you don't fast like them, you ain't fasting. If you don't praise like them, you ain't--and I say I'm ignorant...You got to live this life. You can't depend on others to live your life for you. The choices You make dictate the life You lead.

Ever had a dream about yourself, and all of the sudden you caught a vision on how you really are and it scares the mess out of you? I mean it's like looking in the mirror for the first time and realizing how dirty you really are. So you immediately jump in the shower. Basically what I'm saying is people in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks. He that is without sin cast the first stone. We as Americans tend to think that we're the end all be all of this globe, when if we really turn the mirror on ourselves and stop judging other countries, we'd be a bit more humble...maybe. Like the winter Olympics going on, right? The olympics going on in Russia and they haven't approved gay marriage, so we as the high and mighty Americans are casting stones at the country for not being like us. You know it's weird as a so called "God fearing" nation, we accept things NOT of God.
