Love Letter

love letter

From the moment I met you it was love at first sight. I could remember the day and time you said you loved me. What a wonderful day that was. From then on the love would blossom. Not without test or struggle. Not without days of gloom, but love always prevailed.

It was spring and everything was inline with starting fresh. Having rested for so long I could now run without worry for your love would carry me. A love not only heard, but felt and even seen. A love intertwined with corrections and blessings.

You have been so good to me. I have never gone without provision. I have never gone without what was needed. You have supplied all my needs.

Trust is a must and love is its anchor. What have I to fear and be intimidated, when each day I have your ear? What a love so required and so dear to have you always near.

TOTAL SURRENDER

I simply put off the flesh by immersing myself in the things of God. I minimize my exposure to the dangers of the computer, ungodly programs on television, phone applications, magazines, video games, and certain friendships and stores. I know that my outside temptations are one dimension and dealing with internal temptations is another. So the first thing I do in the morning is shut myself in the room with my computer and listen to Christian worship music. I listen until I am only thinking about God and the things he has done for me. I listen until all is quiet in my mind and I am able to focus on my word. Then I begin reading scripture. I keep reading until I literally start praying and then after prayer I meditate on the things read and prayed.

I seek to change things that are revealed to me in prayer and scripture reading. It may be gossip has entered my conversation.  I am literally speaking too much and the inevitable gossip arises, because I do not have that much to say and sometimes I talk a lot. So I ask the Lord to forgive me and identify this pattern in my life and God convicts me in my conversation if I am going down the path of gossip. Gossip is now put off and now I seek to put off more things. I do this, with all that is revealed, because I love God, I humble myself to his authority and simply stop. It works wonders because more and more people trust me with their words as they will not hear them from someone else. I have put off a conversation that is ungodly and now have put on a conversation which is that of God’s gospel. I move in this manner from one issue to the next in hopes that while I preach unto others I myself will not be a castaway (1 Corinthians 9:27).

A CONVERSATION WITNESSED

DELILAH: TELL ME! WHERE DOES YOUR STRENGTH COME FROM

SAMSON: FROM THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH

DELILAH: WHAT WILL YOU GIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR STRENGTH

SAMSON: AT FIRST THOUGHT NOTHING, AT SECOND THOUGHT                                              NOTHING, AT THIRD THOUGHT SEX

DELILAH: SEX IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR MIRACLOUS STRENGTH

SAMSON: YES! I THOUGHT IT OVER AND IT SOUNDS GOOD

When you look at this story it seems to be a no brainer.  The devil will always tempt you with something you already can have, but in a way that defiles the man or woman. Psychologist tell us that sexual addictions are the most difficult to break. Why? The Bible says that when a man and woman outside the bonds of marriage have intercourse they are joined. No other sin joins us together.  So refrain from joining with anyone that has not joined you in marriage. Otherwise why cheapen yourself and lose strength for nothing.

*The defilement of mankind with sexual sin is on the rise as you may or may not notice in the news, the solution, if we go back to the conversation we find the solution is found in the meditation. DO NOT MEDIATATE ON UNHOLY THINGS. Our flesh is weak and we will fall all the time if we do.

RACISM

roger

Definition:

Racism is a system of oppression, one that creates a society of first- and second-class citizens by denying rights and access to resources to non-white people. Racism is a system of power created by and maintained through public policy. Racist rhetoric or action is anything that reinforces/upholds that system. So until the day comes when the US government enacts laws aimed specifically and purposefully at ensuring that white people are shut out of education/healthcare/jobs/housing and shuttled into prison and poverty, I don’t want to hear any more about the growing discrimination against white Americans. It is nonexistent.

It Looks Like This:

racismracism

Explanation:

White Supremacy

Churches Response: 

Historically, to the very present the church has always followed the culture at large. For many the system works fine. The system works best when we continue along with it.

I understand the Bible requires that we love God, our neighbor, and even our enemies, but these are just suggestions. I understand we talk about Jesus, but you must understand this is a formality. Do not change the system. Do not expect me to be Christ like. This cross on my chest and the bumper sticker on my car are just idols that mean nothing.  “Come on! You see my action right?”

Happy Most Segragated Day of the Week!

Reality:

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.” “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14).

Solution:

‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ (Luke 10:27)

How will I know I am keeping Luke 10:27?

Your Facebook posts will change. You will be more concerned with souls then foolishness. More posts about Christ and less about worldly accomplishments. You will notice the atmosphere around you changes. People of all races will quickly open up to you, because they will see Jesus and not pride and arrogance.

Satanist will recognize and hate you and you will recognize them.

Your messages will be useful. You will put away intellectual messages that serve egos rather than Godly edifying.

You will love the brethren (Christians) not just your own color.

Reflection:

Paul loved so much that he was willing to throw his soul into hell for his people, is your pastor this willing? Then why are you following him?

THE PERFECT LOVE STORY

A man just confessed to me that he is in love with someone who has turned his world upside down. This woman that he saw from a distance would soon become his wife. He knew from the moment his eye lids lifted that the vision before him was so stunning and so magnificent his lips began to quiver. I am telling you this woman reminded him of Eve in the garden, Samson’s Delilah, Abraham’s old attractive wife, and Jacob’s Rachel. If you recall Jacob within the pages of scripture he loved Rachel at first sight. This woman was equipped with all the bells and whistles of a 7 series BMW. She was in all practical terms the perfect woman. This man mutters some words only a gifted linguist can recognize and she still says yes to whatever he just said. Exchanging the proverbial number and parting ways this man overjoyed by the encounter goes to the mall to update his clothing.

Who would have guessed that the mall he chose and the time in which to go, this Rachel like woman would also be there too. It just so happens, they both were looking to update their clothing. He confronts her again and they chat a little and then they part again, only this time a date is confirmed at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Delighted to make reservations and to plan a wonderful evening of getting to know his better half, nothing could be so perfect, so grand and spectacular.

So the dinner date is arranged and this man and his perfect woman are out on a date. Shortly into the date this man finds out this woman does not believe in God. He knows that the Bible says that a man or woman should not be unequally yoked, but he reminds himself that she is perfect the way she is. A little disturbed by this because he is Christian, he decides to continue the relationship, because what would Jesus do? Get her saved. Right?

They have been dating for six months now and he is ready to marry her. She is not saved and his attempts to present Christ were met with let’s agree to disagree. This man finds himself at the decision point when purchasing the ring, but he keeps recalling those light brown eyes and those perfect bells and whistles.

So he plunges in and they get married and the honeymoon could not be better. They stayed at their beautiful home, because the wedding was so expensive there was no money left over for a trip to Europe or the Bahamas.

The fire of passion fades and the flames are dialed down and this man gets more zealous about his relationship with Jesus. His wife is not pleased with his time at church, as she does not attend, due to the fact she does not believe in God. Then something happens…

Please comment – should they have gotten married? If no or yes please answer why?

INTERRACIAL LOVE SONG

White Girl:

I tried to cover my shine
I’ve tried stayin in the lines
I, I, I, don’t wanna hide
No not tonight
 
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want you to look me in the eye, eye, eye
 
Ready or not here, here, here, here, here, I come
I’m about to show you where the light comes from, oh, oh
Ready or not here here I come
This is who I am I won’t hide it
I’m a take it all over the world
To the young, to the old every boy and girl
Ready or not here, here, I come
I’m a show the world where the love is
 
I’m not ever selling out
Love and God is what it’s all about
Give him verything to see the lost get found
Yeah it’s goin down
 
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want u to look me in the eye eye eye

Black Boy:

Refuse to keep this buried deep inside of me
Yeah this little light of mine
It’s time to let it shine a bit
Cause there’s no point in hiding it
It’s everything I am
The source off all my hope
And it’s the reason why I stand
I pledge allegiance to be somebody real, there’s no more holding it back
I’m showing them how I feel
Cause love is more than a word
It’s a noun and a verb
And hiding it is absurd,
Ya Heard?
 
How many knew this song is actually the top 2013 Christian hit called Ready or Not by Nicole Britt aka white girl and Lacrea aka black boy?
 
I changed the title because I was listening to the song in my car the other day and I kept thinking these two are talking about themselves more than God. Beside the single reference to God, you get lost in coming out. I thought they were coming out to tell the world about their interracial relationship. She’s saying not tonight and he’s saying cause there is no point in hiding it. Hiding what? Anyway, someone help me out here.
