STOP THE MADNESS!

STOP THE MADNESS!

‘Insecurities are about as useful as holding a Grenade after the pin has been pulled!’

 

Upon viewing the internet this Morning I came across the articles that talked about the teenage girls and boys that have been posting videos and photos of themselves on YouTube and asking the public if they are Pretty or Ugly. My initial thought was, ‘What have We come to in this present day?’ ‘Where are We headed?’ The more I pondered this issue the more it came to Me that this is something that goes on daily with millions and millions of individuals and not only on YouTube with teenagers but with individuals of ALL ages in every area of day-to-day life.

BEAUTY…Or what We are lead to believe is BEAUTY is pushed into Our faces or pressed upon Us continually on television, in magazines, on the internet, on the streets, at work, even at church as We worship and if One is not Secure in who and what they are, they tend to fall for the BEAUTY Lies or they try their best to transform themselves into the Lie…

‘Her body is Nice. She doesn’t have a stomach.’ ‘I Want to be like that?’

‘He is built like a statue of David with those muscles. That’s what the Women like!’ ‘I Want to look like that?’

‘She has a Nice, Round behind.’ ‘I have to get my behind like that?’

‘Her breasts are so perky!’ ‘I have to get some of those so the guys will look at me?’

‘He has a head full of hair.’ ‘I have to get treatments or something to grow my hair back like his?’

“I Want to be Like…’ ‘I Want to be Like…’

I simply don’t understand why We are such an INSECURE species! So many of Us live Our lives uncomfortable in Our OWN skin and in Our OWN bodies because We have this belief or idea that Our skin, and I am not speaking of Race, or that Our body isn’t Good enough or BEAUTIFUL enough. (And, if You are One of those individuals living with this belief, My question is, BEAUTIFUL ENOUGH for who?’)…

We see someone else and We want to be like them. We are told that Our bodies should be shaped a certain way and We do ALL manner of things, even Life threatening things, to acquire that body We are told We should possess. We see another individual that We think or Feel is BEAUTIFUL and We long to look like them. We are told by the opposite sex that We are not attractive enough and We long to be like another. Some of Us are so INSECURE that We seek continued Validation from the opposite sex by flirting or putting Ourselves on display so as to gain that attention or that compliment from them and if We don’t get that compliment or attention We get the idea that We are not BEAUTIFUL enough and it compels Us to do other things to gain their attention that are Destructive and Disrespectful to Ourselves…

It’s past time to accept who and what We are Individually and STOP worrying about if We are BEAUTIFUL Enough or as BEAUTIFUL as the next Person.We were not supposed to be Carbon Copies of each other. We are supposed to be DIFFERENT! We are supposed to be Unique in how We look and how how We are shaped. We should do away with having to be Validated by the opposite sex or by others because that only leads to Wrong actions and behaviors by Us if We are not Validated by them…

VALIDATE YOURSELF! STOP worrying about if You are BEAUTIFUL Enough! STOP worrying about if You are UGLY! STOP comparing Yourself to Others and Be the Unique YOU that GOD created You to be. Don’t fall for the BEAUTY Lie that We have been told we should resemble, whether You’re a Woman or a Man because YOU are BEAUTIFUL just the way YOU are!

Don’t live Your Life INSECURE, My Friend. It’s No GOOD for You.

 ‘Believe that You are BEAUTIFUL and You Are.’

How Much?

How Much?

 

-‘What People Do For Money?’

                        -Divine Sounds (1984)

 

As I was riding along the other day this song came on the Radio and I really focused on the Words as the artist sang them, unlike back in 1984 when the song was played I was most likely break dancing or rapping along as the beat flowed from the speakers. Upon hearing the song this time, at the Young age of 40, I really listened to what was being said and the Words spoke to Me like they were saying, ‘Wow, Bishop! It’s interesting and at times Sad what many People will do for Money or things pertaining to Monetary or Material Gain…!’

As the car rolled along and Divine Sounds continued singing, ‘What People Do For Money?!’ and I sang along with the chorus, I began to think of ALL the things that People Do, Have Done or Will Do for Money and it simply caused Me to shake My head from side to side in a ‘NO!’ motion, as if someone had posed a question to Me that I was totally against. I thought of how some People will… ‘Step on others,’ ‘Degrade themselves,’ ‘Become somewhat of a Slave to another,’ ‘Bow down to another,’ ‘Allow themselves to be Abused,’ ‘Sell-Out,’ ‘Commit Murder,’ ‘Take part in Criminal Activity,’ ‘Steal from others,’ ‘Take part in an activity that they are Uncomfortable with’ and ‘Allow their Physical Selves to be taken advantage of,’ ALL to have Money, keep Money or be in the Midst of those with Money or Material.

Sing it with Me…’What People Do For Money?!’

I guess I just don’t understand why some People don’t think more of themselves by knowing their Personal Worth, which would keep them from doing ALL sorts of things for Monetary Gain. Many People simply allow their Morals and Integrity to ‘Fly Out of the Window’ when they feel that they might Lose out on obtaining Money or when they feel that they will Lose the source of their ‘Cash or Material Flow.’ I guess, too, that when so many People allow Things or Individuals outside of them to give them Worth, they have no other way to feel Valuable other than by DOING ANYTHING to feel that Value, even if it is subjecting themselves to Degradation.

 

My Friend…My Reader, think about it…’What Have You Done or What Would You Do For Money?’ Would You ‘Sell-Out?’ ‘Have You or Would You jeopardize Your Morals and Integrity?’ Or…’Do You know Your Self-Worth from the start?’

 

‘How Much?’ I hope that You don’t have a PRICE…

Just Going Through The Motions

Just Going Through The Motions

As I sat in church service on Sunday, the thought came to Me concerning the issue of people attending church just because it’s Sunday and that’s just what they do on the Sabbath, in other words ‘Just Going through the Motions.’ I said to Myself, ‘I wonder how many of the people in attendance are really here to get a Word from GOD?’ ‘How many of these people are actually hearing the Word and applying it to their lives?’ ‘How many of these people are singing these songs and really meaning the Words that they are singing?’ How many people are truly Praying sincerely from the Heart?’ ‘If I asked a number of the people in church service what they actually heard today in the message, when service was over, how many of them could actually tell Me what they heard?’

As I sat there listening to the message and absorbing ALL that I heard to use later and apply to My life, I said to Myself how sad it was that most of the people, I mean… Christians, in service were doing just that ‘Going Through the Motions,’ with the lifting of their hands, the singing of songs, the shaking of hands, the bowing of their heads, the clapping of their hands, the closing of their eyes, the praying of Prayers and the Amen-ing of Amens. I would say that you could probably count the number of TRUE worshipers, not simply ‘Going Through the Motions’ on one hand.

What have we come to?

It’s a TERRIBLE thing that this is going on in Church but ‘Just Going Through the Motions’ is happening in every area of Our lives, day after day. We go through Life waking up in the Morning ‘Going Through the Motions’ preparing for our day….

‘Going Through the Motions’ on our jobs and in our careers not enjoying one moment of it…

‘Going Through the Motions’ in our marriages and in our relationships with others because we have become
accustomed to the people in our lives ‘just’ being there and taking their presence for granted…

‘Going Through the Motions’ with our families and the ones we LOVE, taking for granted that they know we LOVE them because we are a part of their lives and hardly ‘ever’ saying to them how we Care and that we LOVE them…

‘Going Through the Motions’ speaking to others we meet, asking ‘How are you?’ and not stopping to hear their reply…

‘Going Through the Motions’ saying how we hate Wrong and Sin but not doing anything to CHANGE the Wrongs to Rights and continuing to commit Sins ourselves…

‘Going Through the Motions’ of Praying that GOD will Bless us but not having any intention of doing what we
need to do to become that ‘ONE‘ that GOD will Bless…

‘Just Going Through the Motions’ is just a LIE that we are telling ourselves and everyone around us but we are ALL so engrossed in the LIE, that we are ignorant to the fact that we are even ‘Going Through the Motions’ in most of the things we do. We need to wake up and Enjoy Our Lives, really give of Ourselves to those in Our Lives and show that we are not taking them for granted, stand up for what is Right and hate Sin, so that we can do away with the Wrongs we witness day to day and most of ALL, STOP ‘Just Going Through the Motions’ when it comes to GOD and truly give Ourselves, Our Lives and Hearts to HIM so that Our Lives, the Lives of others and Our World as a whole will be the BEST it can be.

My Friend…Are you ‘Just Going Through the Motions’ in any area of your Life? If you are, I hope that you notice it and Change it soon because…

‘Life is too Important to ‘Just Go Through the Motions!’

It Doesn’t Ask…It Simply Comes…

It Doesn’t Ask…It Simply Comes…

When Autumn comes…It doesn’t ask, it simply rolls in…”

                                                            -John Mayer

 

I was sitting thinking last evening before falling off to sleep, that LOVE, like Autumn comes when it wants to, it doesn’t ask if you are ready for it or if the timing is right in your life, it simply comes and over takes you. LOVE, like Autumn, does not apologize for its arrival because it knows that its right on time, whether you agree or not.

I like this about LOVE! We may be going about our lives having no thought of LOVE or Falling in LOVE or not even wanting to have another in our life but LOVE steps in and says differently, causing us to notice and become interested in someone out of the blue and we’re like, ‘WOW! What just happened?’ We can fight it. We can run from it. We can deny it. We can place it in the deepest recesses of our subconscious but no matter what LOVE is still there and in due time we will answer to its call.

LOVE is so Courageous and Bold the way it simply walks up to us and says, ‘HI! I’m here. Get ready My Friend…You can fight me but I am here to stay. So, let’s do this!’ LOVE is like this because it is GOD’s Essence and GOD wants us to do nothing less than LOVE and receive LOVE from another. GOD steps in and says, ‘My Child, it is time to stop running from My LOVE and the LOVE that I am placing in your life through this person that I have brought into your life, come to Me and allow this LOVE I am offering you to bring you the Happiness you long for. No matter how you feel about LOVE or how the LOVE looks to you right now, My Child, I am offering you the BEST through this offering of LOVE from My Heart. Surrender to it…

LOVE, like Autumn and definitely like Our GOD, steps into our lives when IT wants to. Boldly. Courageously. With no apologies to make our lives the BEST they can be. And when LOVE steps in we need to surrender to it and allow it to flood us with its GIFT of happiness. Its such a GREAT thing!

LOVE…I Thank You for your Boldness and GOD, Thank You for LOVE in My Life. I know it’s the ULTIMATE gift from You…

Be BOLD and COURAGEOUS, without Asking, like LOVE and simply…’Let it OVERTAKE You, My Friend!’
