MLK for Today?

Listening to the radio the other day on the way to work there was a discussion about who was, would be or is the MLK for today in the Light of the unvailing of the MLK Memorial in Washington, DC. The words spoken were mixed and definitely opinionated. As I listened I wondered Myself if there was anyone alive today that was that Courageous and Strong enough to endure the type of opposition that King endured while he was alive and persevered to get his message of Equality and LOVE out to the people. It will take an Individual that is LOVING, Kind, GODLY, Strong, Courageous, Willing,’For ALL People,’ Compassionate, Not Afraid to speak the TRUTH to the Masses eventhough it might bring them Opposition and Being talked about…’ One that is not about THEMSELF or Selfish and more about the Well-Being and Betterment of others.

Martin Luthr King, Jr. was this type of individual that possessed the Heart,Soul and Soft-Spirit that was needed to bring about the Change that was needed to better the lives of ALL individuals. In today’s Society and World, I just don’t know if there is one that exist that is Selfless enough, Courageous enough, Strong enough, LOVING enough to step up and do what MLK did in his time. Yes, there are many that walk around from day to day preaching a Good game but they don’t TRULY exhibit the character to be able to endure and persevere in the face of Opposition and Hatred from the people.

Has GOD Created an MLK for Our present day? If HE has is it just not time for He/She to be revealed? Is that individual afraid to step up and speak up because of the opposition they will be met with? Is that individual already in Our midst, doing their job but We just are too Ignorant to WANT hear them?…

We definitely need an MLK for today because We may be somewhat better off but We as Human Beings have a long way to go before We can say any of Us have ‘Reached the Mountaintop’ as Individuals, Groups, a People, a Race/Races or a Society or World with ALL of the ILLS that We face and witness in Our present day.

My Friends, let’s Pray for an MLK to speak to Us and Enlighten Us to the TRUTH of where We should be and what GOD wants for Us as a Whole.

STRONGER THAN DEATH

STRONGER THAN DEATH

 

-‘One has to find something in their Life that they Stand for that is Stronger than DEATH and with that…DEATH will
have no Power over them…’

                                                                                                -Otis Moss, Jr.

 

Sitting amongst the congregation during Easter Morning Services on yesterday and listening to the message delivered by Otis Moss, Jr. and hearing him speak on the topic of finding something in Your Life that is ‘Stronger than DEATH,’ which was a Metaphor for Christ’s being crucified for Living a Life of TRUTH and Righteousness and speaking Words that were against what many Believed, then Arising from the Dead after Living a Life of TRUTH and Righteousness, doing His Father’s Work and that being His ‘SOMETHING’ that He stood for that was Stronger than DEATH and that which in turn led Him to His DEATH upon the Cross, I began to think about what is it that I STOOD for in My Life that, to Me, is ‘Stronger than DEATH’ that keeps Me going or doing that SOMETHING no matter what opposition I come against…

As Mr. Moss continued speaking he spoke about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his battle for Civil Rights  and Equality for ALL and how this battle was Dr. King’s SOMETHING that was ‘Stronger than DEATH’ in his Life. During Dr. King’s battle for the Equal Rights of ALL he was met with Great opposition from those that did not want or Believe the same things he did and from those that did not WANT to hear the TRUTH. Mr. Moss spoke about Dr. King’s imprisonment and how he would not give up the battle even when DEATH was staring him in the face…

As I continued to listen to the message the idea crossed My mind that the DEATH doesn’t have to be the DEATH where Our Lives come to an End, which is what Mr. Moss was speaking on, I thought about the fact that it could be the DEATH of a Friendship, Relationship, Partnership, Union or any form of ‘coming together’ that comes to an End due to One’s standing for something that they will not give up on because it is Right,
Moral or TRUE, even when those around don’t agree and criticize them for it…

After much thought about it I came to the conclusion that the SOMETHING in My Life that I stand for that is ‘Stronger than DEATH,’ in whatever form it may come in, is LOVE, TRUTH and INTEGRITY. No matter how others might tear apart what I might Write, Speak or Believe, I simply refuse, just like Jesus, Dr. King or anyone else that stood for SOMETHING, to back down off of it. And, just like Jesus and Dr. King, it is not
My TRUTH that I stand on or for, it is GOD’s TRUTH and that cannot be CHALLENGED, no matter what others Believe or say…

 

My Friend…My Reader, ‘What is it that You STAND for in Your Life that is ‘Stronger than DEATH?’’ If there is Nothing, give it some thought…Then STAND Up…And, You will no longer FEAR DEATH of any kind…

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.’

My Friend…My Reader…No matter what is going on in Your Life…No matter what things seem to be in the Natural…No matter how You feel about Your situation…No matter how much You don’t have…No matter how Crazy the World and Society tend to get…No matter how lonely You feel…No matter if its Hard to Believe…No matter if Friends are nowhere to be found…No matter if the Money is scarce…No matter if You are Afraid…No matter if You feel that LOVE is non-existent…No matter if You are weak of Body…No matter if circumstances don’t seem to be turning around for the BETTER for You…No matter if You can’t See or Imagine a ‘Way Out’ of Your Darkness…No matter if the Light is Invisible to You at the Present time…No matter how Your Heart aches…

‘Water Walking’

‘We can still Walk Upon the Water today if we would only search our Hearts for the FAITH to step out of the Boat and do something that we are afraid of doing, knowing that we can only accomplish this feat by taking Step after Step in FAITH and keeping our Eyes on GOD and allowing HIS Power to carry us to our endeavor’s Fruition.’

My Friend…Don’t look down at the Water, keep Your Eyes on GOD and keep the Pace!

Never Allow Your DREAMS To Die For A Reality…

Never Allow Your DREAMS To Die For A Reality…

‘I’m a big fan of Dreams. Unfortunately, Dreams are the first casualty in life–people seem to give them up quicker than anything for a REALITY.’   -Kevin Costner

Allowing our Dreams to die to, as they say, ‘Face reality,’ is a settling for less than we are and a giving up on what we want to become, on what we could become. No matter whom we are or where we are, we ALL have Dreams or have had Dreams of becoming or doing something Great in our lives. We have ALL had or continue to have our Hearts whisper or either scream to us from within, telling us to listen to it and follow its lead to reach our ULTIMATE happiness. Our destiny that GOD has planned for us but we, as humans, give up on our Dreams and settle for a reality that’s beneath us or not a part of our ‘greater-good.’ We tell ourselves that our Dreams are so slow to come to fruition that they must not be meant for us to achieve and we give up on them, throwing in the towel, instead of holding on to our patience and persevering until our Dreams comes to pass. We give in to our ‘so-called’ reality and go about our lives day to day simply existing, stagnant, unhappy and unfulfilled because we have allowed our Dreams, our Hearts, the voice of GOD within us to die or to be taken up by someone else. We have to remember that GOD said in HIS word that, ‘A Man that faints along his road to a goal set before him is not fit for Heaven.’ GOD needs those of us who will listen and take heed to our Hearts, HIS voice within us and persevere, endure, have patience and Active Faith, stepping out there and doing ALL that we can to allow our Dreams to live and see them through to fruition. That is the reason HE provided us the Dreams to start with, to see them be the same outside of us in the Natural just the way we see them on the inside of us in our Hearts.

My Friend, your Dreams are a preview to your Greatness. All Men who have achieved Great things have been dreamers. BIG DREAMERS! And, I feel that those who do most, Dream most. Those that do not allow themselves to Dream, or that allow their Dreams to die may accomplish some things but not the truly BIG and Amazing things. Not the things placed in them by GOD.  Those things are achieved by the Dreamers of Dreams. Those that allow themselves to Dream and follow their Dreams through to fruition are the ones that have VISION. They are the ones who can see the INVISIBLE and have the patience, endurance, perseverance and ACTIVE FAITH to do the IMPOSSIBLE. These are the ones that ‘Change the World!’

I, Myself, am a DREAMER. A BIG DREAMER! And, I pray daily for the strength, the Courage and the Heart to never allow My Dreams to die. I have Dreams of being the COMPOSER and not just a part of the orchestra or the audience. I have Dreams of being the AUTHOR and not just the reader. I have Dreams of being the CHOREOGRAPHER and not just a backup Dancer. I have Dreams of being the VOICE OF CHANGE and not just a voice in the crowd of voices. I have Dreams of being in a GREAT MARRIAGE with a GREAT WOMAN and not just in a marriage and going through the motions. I have Dreams of being a GREAT MAN doing GREAT THINGS and not just a Man among Men. I have Dreams of being a LEADER and SERVANT to the people and not just a follower. I have Dreams of being a CHANGE AGENT and not one that simply speaks of a change. I am a DREAMER of DREAMS and I will continue to be because I know that, where My Dreams are, that is where GOD is. I will never allow them to die. I will see them through to fruition because GOD makes it more evident to Me every day, that My DREAMS are coming true.

No matter what your Dreams are, My Friend, I hope that you will allow your Dreams to live, give them life continually, never allow them to die. No matter how long their coming to fruition seems to take, keep praying, keep the FAITH, have Courage, patience, endurance and persevere until your DREAMS are the TRUTH.

I Will…

-PM Bishop
