Just a quick thank you for all the new followers both on here and on Twitter that are not only joining my burning passion to write but also to hopefully lift the veil that has been cast over our eyes. A veil that has prevented us from truly following Jesus and His teachings and instead created a religion that looks nothing like what God intended. This is the essence of my post this morning; to explain a little more about why I do this…
It’s funny because yesterday my middle son asked me, “what is my biggest strength?” When he asked me that he made sure to let me know he was referring to his talents and gifts. Of course I said he has a big heart but he was looking for something more specific; so, being the musician he is I said your music! You have a God given gift to be a musician and I think you would be wise to follow that gift. All of my kids have special gifts from God as do all of you reading this; don’t ever forget that. Then, just for fun, I asked everyone what mine was and it ranged anywhere from preaching to what Derek said, “you can write your ass off”. I found that interesting because although my family supports me greatly in my passion, they don’t always have time to read what I write. They also said I should start a You Tube channel but I’m just not as proficient in front of a camera as I am typing on a keyboard. Can anyone relate?
So, as if I hadn’t before, I made my decision last night to completely throw myself into this venture. Not to get “famous” or make lots of money, but instead to accept the gift that God has given me and also relay a message that not many are ready to hear, yet needs to be told. Everywhere there is deception; deception at a level that is even hard for me to fathom. Everyone says that blacks folks hate white folks; hmmmm I have lots of ” black” friends and people I consider to be family and yet no hate there. This is just one example but there are so many more where the Enemy has set out an agenda to deceive you. Decieve you and keep you from Truth; a Truth that can only be found when you are ready to let go of everything you have been taught about the world and in many cases Christianity. Jesus wants true followers, not religious zealots.
So much to tell you friends, but enough for today. Will you join me on this mission? Are you tired of the deception? You can follow my work either by email, WordPress, or Twitter. Hope to see you all there with me.
Lifting the Veil,
Good morning everyone and welcome to Saturday! Sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days but it has been a bit of a crappy stretch for me health wise and just didn’t have it in me to write anything. I’m about 85% or so; still have the lingering cough and of course the hip issue (which I will get to in a minute) but overall feel like I’m at least on the right path again. Hope everyone is doing well out there and would love to hear from you guys. You can communicate to me through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and of course right here as well.
So, apparently I am officially mortal…..For those that don’t know a lot of my backstory, one of the more finer moments in my life happened when I thought it would be a great idea to not tackle other people but instead up the ante and try and tackle a car. Didn’t work out real well for either of us but I think the car probably got the worst of it lol. Seriously though I was getting off the city bus at the ripe old age of 14 and didn’t look both ways, darted out and BAM! Got flipped up in the air, somehow landed enough on my feet that I was able to walk about 20 yards before collapsing over a railing….I don’t remember much after that except for waking up in the hospital about 12 hours later not having any idea what happened. I was truly blessed that day because one half second either way in time and I would not be here writing this blog. God was in control even then….
I tell you this backdrop story of mine because I had thought that all my wounds had healed; not so much. See many people have told me I waddle rather than walk because one leg is shorter than the other. Really though its not my leg but my hip and back area got knocked pretty good and I never really got it taken care of; so now at the ripe old age of 46 its back and back with a vengeance…
Now, keep in mind my pain tolerance is pretty low, even for a guy, but this pain I knew was different so I went to doc about it. He did some X-rays and I got the call yesterday that I have some “very significant” arthritis in said hip and need to go to an Orthopedic specialist. I do understand this is not life threatening or anything like that, but it did give me my very first sense that “hey, goofball, you really won’t live forever”. It also reminded me of a very dark time in my life where by all rights I should have died that day. (Satan has been trying to take me out ever since). It reminds me that I’m over half way done with this crazy thing called life and my physical body will never be the same. Again, there are those in my life that are dealing with so much worse, but for me, this is a little bit of a sobering reminder of my mortality. Make sense?
I’m very aware that me losing weight couldn’t hurt the situation, however, I also know I would be dealing with this heavy or not. Back in the 80’s cars were still made with steel and so were not as forgiving as they may be today. This pain in my hip is that constant reminder; maybe the new doc will be able to help, maybe not, but as for me the first reminder that my days are not as many as they used to be just creeped up and said hello. Cute thing though that I will continue to remember as well that even though my earthly days are getting smaller, my eternal days are just around the corner. Maybe someone out there is also dealing with a similar experience? I would love to hear from you about it! Leave a comment in the comments section or however you see fit. In the meantime remember also that God is still in control and while the earth will reclaim your body, God has your eternal soul which if given to Him will live for all eternity where pain does not exist…..
Peace and love my friends, Happy Saturday!!
Good morning everyone and happy Friday! I’ll cut right to it today. We need prayers! For those that read your Bible you know that Job went through a lot. So much though that if I stop I think about it, I would take what we are dealing with any day. With that said, I feel like our family is going through something similiar and I’m just a a loss….
I won’t get into specifics for privacy reasons but we have been dealing with sickness (some potential fatal), job loss, poor choices, the list goes on and on. It seems as our family is just “up to bat” the last couple of months dealing with one thing after another. So, here I am, pleading with God to give us comfort, strength, and if it is His will to start to take these situations away. I ask prayers from all of you because despite all of this, I know God is in control and He does hear our prayers. So I ask for only that; your prayers. Thank you for reading and may you find peace in Jesus today.
NOTE: Tomorrow’s blog will be totally different. I will be posting my feelings about the current situation with my favorite sports team, THE Miami Dolphins. 😉
Peace and Love,
