Time Will Reveal…

Its Amazing to Me how people can come up with ALL types of excuses or reasons to justify their Sinning or Wrong Doing. For some reason many of Us seem to think that Jesus’ dying on the Cross gave Us FREE-REIGN to Sin as much as We like and then simply ask for Forgiveness and ALL will be ok and BEAUTIFUL with the World. This is So far from the TRUTH! Yes, its TRUE that GOD Forgives Us Our Sins but HE also tells Us in HIS Word, ‘Flee from Sin…Run from it…Keep as far away from Sin as You can…The wages of Sin is Death…,’ this to Me means that We should not Sin. And, Yes, We are ALL Sinners…Born into Sin…We have ALL Sinned and Fallen short but after We ask for Forgiveness of those Sins We are to keep away from those Sins that We have asked Frogiveness for. GOD LOVES Us and wants the best for US, HIS Children, but if We continue to choose Sin HE will have no choice but to discipline Us through HIS LOVE for Us. When We Sin or continue to choose Sin GOD never leaves Us, HE allows Us to have to deal with the consequences of Our Sins so that We will learn from them and hopefully, through Our ‘Consequence Learning’ We will choose to stay away from Sin. It is never GOD that leaves Us, it is Us that steps away from HIM to do as We please, by choosing Sin over Fleeing from Sin.

There are many that choose Sin and actually ask for Forgiveness during the actual committing of the Sin. Talk about CONTRADICTION! Thats Man for you, right?! How can One know that an act is Wrong in GOD’s Eyes, continue to take part in the act and ask Forgiveness ALL at the same time? I guess that individual feels that Sinning in this way makes the Sin a ‘Little White Sin.’ (What the Hell…)

My writing this post comes from reading more on the Bishop Eddie Long case and thinking of ALL of the individuals out there that have Sinned and are Sinning and might feel that their DARKNESS won’t have LIGHT Shined upon IT…Oh, My Friend, the time for Your Sin to be revealed is coming, just as everyone’s Sin in days past have been revealed. Be assured that if You have Sinned or are Sinning GOD will not and does not allow Sins to go unpunished. Whether We have a feeling that Our Sin is justified because it ‘Feels Good to Us’ or ‘Our Sin is out of Revenge or Anger’ or ‘We have asked Forgiveness during Our Sinning thinking that makes it Ok’ or ‘We have a LOFTY idea of who We are because of Our title or status’ or ‘We feel that the World owes Us something,’ the Sin that We commit will be Revealed and GOD will allow Us to deal with the consequences until We learn from those Sins, no matter how long Our learning or disciplining takes. 

My Friend, We have ALL Sinned and most of Us will continue to Sin, for One reason or another but GOD is continually calling to Us to choose to ‘Flee from Sin…’ so that HE won’t have to discipline Us and so that We won’t have to deal with those consequences that We Truly don’t want to have to deal with from the start.

I’m continually checking Myself …What are You doing to Flee from Sin? Or are You choosing to Sin because You feel You have Free Reign to do it?

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

-‘I don’t Want any DRAMA in My Life…’

                                    -Various

‘SHHH…’ ‘Listen…’ So many Individuals make the PROCLAMATION, ‘I Don’t Want Any DRAMA In My Life!,’ but ALL in the same breath they are in the very Midst of the DRAMATICS, searching for a way to stir-up some DRAMATICS or ‘Just Down-Right DRAMATIC themselves!’ It’s interesting that We don’t Want or Like DRAMA in Our Lives but We can’t seem to Live without it.

A lot of individuals, if they seem to be in a place where things are Calm and Peaceful, tend to get this idea that
things need to be ‘shaken-up’ or they need to persuade DRAMA to come out of hiding to make themselves feel as if they are a part of something worthwhile. Whether through Gossip, Fabrication, Breaking a Trust, Causing some Pain or simply, Becoming a part of something that entails DRAMATICS. I have come to
notice that, those that make the PROCLAMATION,
‘I Don’t Want Any DRAMA In My Life!’ the most, are the Ones that actually LOVE DRAMA the most…Feeding off of it! Creating it wherever they go! Persuading
others to become a part of it!

‘Are You sure You don’t Want DRAMA in Your Life?’

If an individual doesn’t Want DRAMA in their Life, My question is, ‘Why don’t they just step off of the Stage?’ They continue to act out their part in the DRAMA, replaying the Scene of the Production or the Movie that they
PROCLAIM they don’t care to be a part of, over and over again so as to keep the DRAMATICS going in their Life, to feel like they are actually LIVING.

This to Me is ridiculous because… if the idea is for ‘One to Live a Life FREE of DRAMA but One has been Fooled into believing, therefore actually BELIEVING, that they have to have DRAMA in their Life to feel Alive or a part of something, all the while being DRAMATIC but PROCLAIMING that they ‘Don’t Want the DRAMA in their Life,’ …who is the LIE being told to?

Think about it?

DRAMA and DRAMATICS is for the Theatre…Stage and Screen and if One is not an Actor or Actress they should do ALL that they can to avoid DRAMA because it’s ‘No Good’ for anyone. The less DRAMA We have in Our Lives the less Stress and Worry We have to be concerned with even though We have been lead to Believe otherwise…

 

My Friend…My Reader…Are you One that can TRULY Proclaim, ‘I Don’t Want DRAMA In My Life?’

 

And, if You are…

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

CHEESE…Everything Is Better With CHEESE On Top

CHEESE…Everything Is Better With CHEESE On Top

-‘A SMILE…Is it the Question or the Answer?’

                                    -Lee Smith

CHEESE…Who doesn’t LOVE CHEESE? All over a Pizza, on top of a ‘Mouth-Watering Burger,’ covering Eggs in the Morning, topping Toast, paired with Wine and Crusty Breads, entangled within Macaroni, as a Pool for foods to take a Swim in while Fondue Dipping or as a simple Snack. I don’t know of too many People that don’t LOVE CHEESE. It’s just So Good and in most cases ‘Good for You!’

As I ponder CHEESE and My LOVE for its ‘Pungent, Tart, Creamy, Sweetness’ it brings to Mind the idea of CHEESE in another sense…

You know that Image that We see upon People’s faces when they are Happy, Joyful, Elated, ‘Feeling Good…’ You know? When they are posing for a Picture, they Flash that part of them that Opens up their Hearts…You know, You hear it ALL of the time right before the Camera’s button is pushed or the Flash burst to capture the image, ‘Say…CHEESE!’ Yes…That’s it…The SMILE! Or as We so often refer to it, ‘CHEESING!’

A SMILE…Now, that is the CHEESE that I LOVE to see on Top more than any other type of CHEESE!

Me, Myself… I am a Naturally Smiling Person and I LOVE flashing a Smile at everyone that I meet because it shows that I am open to receiving Smiles and it also shows that I am not an Angry or Unhappy Person. As I go about Life and the Day to Day activities, meeting People in passing along the way, I notice that so many People wear Frowns or Perpetual ‘Mean Mugs’ on their faces instead of SMILES, moving Me to ask the question, ‘Is Life that Bad?’ ‘Is there something that these People know that I don’t that causes them to Frown instead of SMILE?’ ‘Am I Crazy for My LOVE of SMILING and wearing a SMILE?’ ‘Should I wear a Frown too?’ ‘What’s wrong with the World today?’ ‘Why are We so Angry?’ ‘Why won’t You SMILE?’

I guess I just don’t understand why People don’t want to project the BETTER side of themselves by SMILING or wearing a Happy or more Welcoming look upon their faces. We walk around in today’s Society as if We are Angry at everyone and everything, as if someone just told Us that things will never get any BETTER or as if We just Lost Our last Friend. Living this way makes it seem as if We are a Society of Unhappy individuals that are simply passing the Days away and not Enjoying the Moments that GOD gives Us. This alone should be reason to wear a SMILE instead of Frowning…

It used to be Proclaimed that ‘A SMILE is Contagious!’ If only that were TRUE today…

 

My Friend… My Reader….SMILE! Put some CHEESE on TOP!!! It’s so much BETTER to SMILE and allow Your face to Shine in the presence of others and have it say to them, ‘Hey! Life is Great! Here’s a SMILE for You! Enjoy it!’ and hopefully it will be as Contagious as the Flu, affecting Everyone for the BETTER!

‘I feel that a SMILE is the Answer to the Question…’

WHAT?

WHAT?

-‘Sometimes LOVE isn’t Enough…’

-Various Voices

‘And now I will show You the Most Excellent way. If I speak in the tongues of Men and of Angels, but have not LOVE, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom ALL mysteries and ALL knowledge, and if I have FAITH that can move Mountains, but have not LOVE, I am nothing. If I give ALL that I
possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not LOVE, I gain nothing…

LOVE is Patient, LOVE is Kind. It does not Envy, it does not Boast, it is not Proud. It is not Rude, it is not Self-Seeking, it is not easily Angered, it keeps no record of Wrongs. LOVE does not Delight in Evil but rejoices with the TRUTH. It Always Protects, Always Trusts, Always Hopes, Always Perseveres…

LOVE NEVER FAILS!

And now these three remain: FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. But the Greatest of these is LOVE…’
1 Corinthians 13: 1-7 & 13

And, they say that ‘Sometimes LOVE isn’t Enough…,’ I beg to differ and I fail to believe that LOVE isn’t Enough, no matter the circumstance or situation, because…

It’s LOVE that Created Us. It’s LOVE that brought Us through. It’s LOVE that wakes Us up every day. It’s LOVE that allows Us to be Forgiven. It’s LOVE that compels Us to reach out to others that need a helping Hand. It’s LOVE that causes Us to feel for those going through trials. It’s LOVE that keeps Us Hoping for and Knowing that there is ‘Something Better.’ It’s LOVE that keeps GOD mindful of Us. It’s LOVE that delivered Jesus
to Us, GOD in the form of Man, to be a ‘Living Example’ of how We should live. It’s LOVE that hung upon the Cross and became SIN itself, to save Us from Hell. It’s LOVE that keeps GOD from destroying this World of Ours and HIS giving us ‘Chance after Chance’ to get it right, by turning to HIM. It’s LOVE that Defeats Evil each and every time, bringing the Light to the Darkness…

No matter how You see things or what You believe, if You simply take a Moment and look beyond the LIE, You will see that it’s ALL LOVE…The Greatest of them ALL! The ONLY thing there Truly is! The ONLY thing We should be living for…

My Friend…My Reader…The ONLY time that LOVE isn’t Enough is if One is Selfish, they have Fallen for the LIE of Man or if One is in LOVE with the World…


‘LOVE is Always Enough…Ask GOD.’

-PM Bishop

How Happy Are You?

How Happy Are You?

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be.”

                                                            -Abraham Lincoln

 

A group of psychologists was studying the relationship between attitude and happiness in children. The researchers brought two children into their laboratory to be observed. One child was described as a playful, happy and positive little boy. The other boy was described as an unhappy, negative, mean and unadapted child. The scientists started the experiment by placing the unhappy little boy in a room filled with all of the most popular toys and video games. The boy went from toy to toy and game to game, playing with each one for a few minutes and then growing tired of them. After fifteen minutes of play the boy became bored and started to scream and yell, “These toys are terrible! Get me some fun ones.” Then the scientists placed the happy, positive little boy in a room filled with nothing but a pile of horse manure. As the scientists watched from the invisible side of a two-way mirror they were surprised to find the little boy smiling and excited as he exclaimed, “Oh, boy…There must be a pony somewhere!”

 

The above parable came to mind as I walked around at work on yesterday, noticing so many people walking around with smirks on their faces, or just plain out looking as if they were angry with the World, I wondered to myself, “Where are the smiles? Where are the happy people hiding? Is it really that bad?” As I continued on my trek, passing others, I thought to myself how sad it is that so many people walk around unhappy with life or unhappy with the World, not offering smiles or friendly ‘Hellos’ to those they meet, when what they should be doing is walking with a skip in their step, a SMILE on their face and a ‘How are you?’ on their lips.

In today’s society, with so many ‘unhappy’ people, in a World that thrives on misery, being unhappy seems to be the status quo for living. Happy stories do not sell newspapers, magazines or books and some of the most frequented shows and movies are those that offer ‘much’ drama or are ‘tear jerkers.’  I guess it takes a certain amount of courage and independence to be a happy person. To be happy in a World that worships sorrow is akin to heresy. People who are bent on unhappiness, misery or sorrow are very irritated by those who are happy. There are so many times that I hear individuals say that they hate being around happy people because it bothers them. Now, that to me seems to be backwards. I feel that it should be the other way around, vice-versa. It seems that one would seek to be near someone that is happy and uplifting so as to bring their spirits higher, not to be around someone that is just as miserable as they are. But, hey, misery does LOVE company.

I’ve faced the fact that, happiness is definitely threatening to a World founded on fear. Joy and happiness do not seem to be the norm today-but the norm of today is not natural and it is not how GOD meant for us to live or go about our lives. We seem to have gotten used to drama, pain, separation and unhappiness today but we will never be satisfied with it because it’s not GOD’s way. Our destiny is to live in happiness and contentment, with smiles on our faces and ‘Hellos’ on our lips, and we shouldn’t stop until we reach that place.

Think of the parable above… In it lies the secret of HAPPINESS in life:

*See the GOOD

*Find the GIFT

*Keep your mind on the brightest POSSIBILITIES

And ask yourself… “How HAPPY am I?”
