Our God is Greater

abOur God Is Greater~

Let me get this right, we are expected to “stand” when we’re told as though kneeling is absurd, although kneeling to pray is a form of humility?

We are to “believe” our actions are offensive but “have” our native lands insulted and called *s%#@ countries by the one who leads us as though those words do not offend?

Are we “expected” to “hear” the first African American First lady and a former African American political official described as an ape and the baby of an ape and consider this freedom of speech?

Moreover, should we “accept” the justification of shooting our people in the back as a perceivable threat and overlook perceptions of threats to our lives everyday?

Should we “experience” despicable acts against humanity because of race, color and creed and “keep” our mouths shut as though everything is alright and nothing is wrong all in the name of making America great again?

How long should we be “required” to “witness” some religious sectors defend politics when they do not openly share their witness to defend and uphold the word of God nor social injustices?

Well, something is wrong with this picture, and this type of image is not the greatness I have my sight on. The image I see is more like what the word says about the love of many waxing cold and an increase of love for the world than God.

These are the reasons I will keep my sight on a place, according to Galatians 3:28, where “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Great again? Thanks, but no thanks. I will keep my mind on things above and not the things below because our God is Greater, His promises are Greater, and only He I’m proud to say, I’m with Him.

Stand for Right

Astand

We’re in a time when the spirit of perversion is running rampant and in full force on every level. People are confused about their identities, right seems wrong and wrong seems right. Some call evil good and what’s good some call evil.

Truth is considered fake and fake considered truth. Good deeds are misconstrued as something else and trickery well-spoken of. Words of encouragement are twisted and confused but words of foolishness and folly often praised.

It seems the more you seek to get an understanding the more you are misunderstood and ridiculed.

Some in the household of faith are converting to worldliness instead of encouraging others in the world to conform to the ways of the gospel. Holiness is exchanged for hell and hell for holiness.

We’re replacing praising for dancing and dancing for praising. The weapons of warfare are compromised for peace offerings so others will feel better instead of convicted.

The pure in heart desiring to do right are shunned and ostracized and those doing evil deeds  gather followers.

We’re in a time when you’re considered popular by the number of followers or likes on social media you receive instead of how many you encourage to follow you as you follow Christ.

We will follow a solar eclipse with amazement but challenge the possibility of miracles, signs, and wonders. We will witness acts of nature with reverence and respect, but we will dismiss the possibility of a sovereign power higher than ourselves with disdain.

We choose to hate on others instead of loving on them. We often administer words to wound rather than heal.

Things we can’t do a thing about, we talk about instead of pray about it.

There will come a day of judgement for all our deeds. Justice will prevail over evil, evil will be exposed and brought to light. We all will be accountable for our actions.

So, if you are doing right, keep doing right. If you are doing wrong get right. Despite these signs of the time, right is still right, and wrong is still wrong. Don’t get weary in well-doing, fret not yourselves over evil doers, nor be envious because their work of iniquity will seem to prosper.

Be strong, be courageous. In due season, you shall reap if you faint not. The Lord will compensate for any wrong suffered doing His work. Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord. Be strong and courageous. There is a great reward for the righteous.

**I normally do not try to spiritualize my posts because I realize there are viewers from different walks of life and faith.  Only the Holy spirit can convict and deal with the hearts of man. I can only serve as a witness and spread the good news. I choose to use this venue in a creative manner which include practical truths of the gospel. However, with the things going on in this world and society, we must stand for right and not bury our heads in the sand as though wrong does not exist and truth is no longer necessary.

Now, That’s Love

Whether you are a believer or not, or whatever you choose to believe, for the sake of belief or unbelief, you must admit, there is no greater love than one who would lay down his life for another, carry the burdens for another, take thirty-nine stripes, and hang on a cross for them unless He loved them.

You do not have to believe to know that no one would do these things without the power of love- Someone who would do this, now “that’s love.”

The Dance of Despair

041210_417_ballerina_1

I sit here with a heavy heart.

What do I do? How do I release?

The burden within  is raging inside.

How do I express the pain I carry.

How do I rid myself from this anguish?

How do I release the demons which torment my soul?

misty-copeland

I need thee to release me from my place of despair,

I need thee.

I need thee to heal my wounded soul,

I need thee.

I need thee to lift me from this weary pit,

I need thee.

I need your comfort and strength,

I need thee.

To deliver me,

I’ll do a swan dance.

I’ll do the dance of saving grace.

I’ll lift my hands in praise.

I’ll lift my hands to thee.

I’ll do the dance of despair.
