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?

Yellow Tape and White Chalk

YELLOW TAPE & WHITE CHALK…
-‘Yellow Police Tape and White Chalk outlining fallen bodies have become Our ‘NATIONAL’ Landmarks…’

-FATHER MICHAEL LOUIS PFLEGER (Speaking on Violence in Our Society)

The other Morning as I awakened to an Overcast Sky looking down upon Me from outside the Window, arising and stretching to awaken My limbs to take the trek downstairs to the kitchen, to add Coffee grounds to the innards of the Coffee maker so as to enjoy My Morning cup of Coffee that I look forward to every AM after its journey through the intestines of the Coffee maker, marrying with the Steaming hot H2O, being transformed from grounds to Chocolaty, liquid Pleasure, from the Carafe to My cup, I sat and peered out of the Window and said to Myself, ‘Overcast out…but still Beautiful!’

With My ‘Writer’s Journal’ and laptop in front of Me, I powered on the computer and went through the motions of logging on to the ever-so-AMAZING internet and upon arrival at My Yahoo! Homepage
I began to scan the Morning’s TOP stories. Reading and scrolling through the ‘highlights,’ I was saddened at the number of stories that I read about teen Violence, Violence period, and lives being taken, whether by Gun Violence or some other form of Violence. Instantly, My mind went to the Families and LOVED Ones of
these individuals who’s Lives had been stripped from them by another and somewhat imagining how they felt…Hurt. Heartbroken. Robbed. Helpless. Angry. Upset. Baffled. Confused. Down Right Ready to Hurt someone like they themselves Hurt at that moment…

It wasn’t Myself that was going through the loss of a LOVED One through Violence at the moment but I became ANGRY, actually ‘MAD as Hell,’ as I sat and thought about the senseless Violence that We witness every single day of Our Lives. It’s Ridiculous! It seems that a Human Life isn’t worth a Penny in today’s Society/World. We commit these senseless acts of Violence with no regard of others, how they will feel,
what it does to them and how it affects their Lives, how it affects Our Lives. We are so Hell-Bent on Self and ‘instant GRATIFICATION,’ what We WANT and appeasing Our ANGER, that stopping to THINK and making a decision that will not cause PAIN to another or ourselves doesn’t even become an option.

We ask the question, ‘What Species of Animal is the most Dangerous or Most Savage?’ And, the answer is staring Us right in the Face from the reflection in the Mirror. ‘US!’ We can take a look at other Species of Animal and notice that they kill for very few reasons. Protection of their offspring and territory, to have food for the progression of their Species and to defend self but take a look at the reasons We kill or take the
Lives of others, Envy, Greed, Jealousy, MONEY, Material, Covetousness, Illegal Drugs, Dislike, Differing Beliefs, Retaliation, Associations, Defense and a plethora of others. ALL of which are ‘senseless,’ unless you speak about defending Oneself and even then a Life doesn’t have to be taken to defend…

‘How long will We continue in this way?’ ‘How long before We say, ‘Enough is Enough,’ when it comes to Violence?’ ‘How
much Pain do We have to endure to wake up?’ ‘How many of Our Brothers and Sisters have to DIE for Us to stand up for what is Right?’ ‘How many stories do We have to read in the News about senseless Violence before we decide that WE
won’t accept it as News that We want to read anymore?’ ‘ How many Tears have to be shed by Family members and LOVED Ones left behind before We are truly motivated to put a STOP to the Craziness?’ ‘When will We cease the Genocidal
Violence on those of Our races?’ ‘When will a Life mean ‘something’ again?’ ‘How…?’ ‘When…?’

Yellow Police Tape and White Chalk Outlining Fallen Bodies can no longer be Our National Landmarks…
My Friend…My Reader…How do you feel about this?

(This topic will be revisited later…)

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…

ALWAYS…ALWAYS…ALWAYS know that…

GOD IS ALWAYS THERE…HE never leaves You…HE never forsakes You…HE is Always holding You in HIS Hands…

ALWAYS…

Keep the FAITH…My, Friend.

NOT WHAT GOD HAD IN MIND

NOT WHAT GOD HAD IN MIND

-‘What ‘is an’ Eva-Eva!’

                                                -Statement one uses when one doesn’t know what to say, when one comes across a word one cannot pronounce or when one hears something so ‘foolish’ they don’t know how to respond.

 

During my daily skimming of the internet one Morning, looking through articles that were posted for the day, I happened across an article that proclaimed, ‘Marriage Becoming OBSOLETE In Today’s Society.’ Upon reading this article’s header I was brought to a pause and responded with a huge ‘What the !#*!?,’ before saying to myself, ‘GOD, what is this world of ours coming to?’ ‘What are we thinking and why are we thinking this way?’ ‘Why are We so afraid of following You and simply doing what’s RIGHT?’ Then, as I sat back to ponder this proclamation it occurred to Me that this is exactly what is going on with us at present. We are choosing to enter relationships for physical reasons, for monetary and material gain, for our own selfish ‘instant gratification,’ because We have parented a child/children out of a moment of passion, for reasons of convenience, for reasons that have nothing to do with MARRIAGE being the outcome but for reasons that I don’t have enough space to word process here and definitely for reasons that are not justification for MARRIAGE to be proclaimed as becoming OBSOLETE.

OBSOLETE is a word that should never be associated with Marriage for the GREAT fact that Marriage was created by GOD to be a ‘GOOD THING.’ The Bible begins with a MARRIGE, speaks several times of MARRIAGE throughout and ends with a MARRIAGE, this shows that MARRIAGE is important to GOD so it should be important as well as respected by us. When GOD began creating, creation started with a MARRIAGE in the Garden of Eden between the first Man and Woman, Adam and Eve. When GOD sent HIS Son, Jesus as our Savior, HE said that Jesus, ‘…was come to be MARRIED with His Bride, the Church. Us…’ When GOD spoke or when Jesus would teach in parables, MARRIAGE was used to teach the people lessons about MARRIAGE itself and about life as a whole. And, in the END, which is spoken about in Revelations at the finale of the Bible, GOD’s word speaks of the Heavens and the Earth being MARRIED together to form a new place for us to dwell.

In today’s society and world, We have forgotten this, We have chosen to put it somewhere else due to our wanting things to be ‘Our Way,’ Man’s Way,’ and not GOD’s Way or We were never taught this by those that know. We have, a lot of us, chosen not to follow GOD’s laws for MARRIAGE and given ourselves too many choices concerning this matter, that is why MARRIAGE today is seen as becoming obsolete and accepted as ‘right’ or ‘ok’ to be seen in that light. We are so tainted and selfish, as well as afraid of following GOD’s laws and deciding to follow Man’s ways due to our not wanting to be seen as too Christian or not part of the world or society’s mindset, that We simply settle and go along with the ‘Ways of the World.’ This is a sad case and the reason that things are not and will not work in our relationships and MARRIAGES.

As long as We choose to do things our way and not go back to GOD’s Word on MARRIAGE and the respect it deserves it will be seen as obsolete and something that is fading away and no longer an option for us. Those of us that still believe in MARRIAGE and respect it for what GOD created it to be are at times seen as different or ‘behind the times,’ as they say, because We are not conforming to society’s ideals on MARRIAGE and what it is or should be. I, myself, respect MARRIAGE and what it stands for. I always will. It sickens Me, and others that feel the same I am sure, to read an article proclaiming that MARRIAGE is becoming obsolete or to hear someone say that MARRIAGE is a ‘BAD THING.’ How could that be when GOD created it? How easily We tend to get amnesia concerning this! Everything that GOD created, HE created with no flaws and for the GOOD. Especially, MARRIAGE!

My Friend, let’s get back to GOD’s laws on MARRIAGE and follow HIS guidelines of what it is and should be so as not to make it seem OBSOLETE. Returning to HIS ways will make our way so much easier in MARRIAGE, in life, in society and in LOVE.

And, to you individuals saying or believing that MARRIAGE is becoming obsolete because you are conforming to Man’s Ways and afraid of following GOD’s laws, I say to you…

‘What ‘is an’ Eva-Eva!’
