Although, I can’t bring myself to enter the hypocritical, theatrical performance of a church building as a participant…I thank God for the ability to live my life as a testimony…for my love of the greatest gift we could ever receive… not a gift to dress up and go to a church…but a gift to become a part of The Church —impact the world you live in…not the building you attend. ~KP

Free…Yet Bound to The Plantation I was born…

Free…Yet Bound to The Plantation

I was born and raised in Mississippi. I experienced racial injustice growing up, but I refused to allow it to define me. I didn’t understand the foolishness surrounding me, but I knew I couldn’t remain in it.
…I didn’t understand why we could not sit close to the screen when we went to the movies or why we would get chased home after we came out of the movies.
…I couldn’t understand why we could not go into a restaurant to order food, let alone sit down to eat.
…I didn’t understand when I saw a black man who wasn’t allowed to ride in the truck with a white man, but his dog was and the man had to ride in the back of the pickup.
Yet…I refused to remain on the plantation.

In 1895, thirty years behind every other state, Mississippi finally accepted that slavery was legally over and blacks were free, however, they found a way to still suppress the newly freed people. Today, 119 years later the subtle vise is still at work. IGNORANCE…remove a person’s ability to have knowledge and you remove their ability to be productive in this world.

We live in a country that has made tremendous strives since 1865, however, we must strive to go much further. Martin Luther King ripped a page right out of the enemy’s playbook. He esthetically turned the tides of ignorance from us to them, by peacefully standing for what he believed in and uniting a people to do the same.

We can’t change a world if we keep showing our ignorance…if you want to change injustice in this country educate from the wound…if we don’t respect ourselves no one else will. Eric Gardner couldn’t breathe…be we can…don’t give them a reason to highlight our ignorance…give the world a clear view of theirs. ~KP ‪#‎alllivesmatter‬

Black Lives Matter – Really The slogan is…

Black Lives Matter – Really?

The slogan is directed at white police officers accused of wrongfully killing black males. Many chanting from this website https://mxgm.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Operation-Ghetto-Storm.pdf stating 1 black male is killed every 28 hours by police. However, if you take the time to randomly Google the names of the of the 313 people you will find they were mostly involved in criminal activity. Not that the officer saw them and said, I think I will kill a black person today.

Overwhelmingly, more of our young black males are killed at the hands of others black males. If “Black Lives Matter” the outcry should be not only directed at white police officers, but, also at black males who kill each other daily. If I was a white police officer and wanted to kill blacks, I would simply not respond. We do a great job of this ourselves.

I am not saying that there is not a problem with police officers making bad decisions. Clearly, the officer who refused to release the chokehold on Eric Gardner needed to be held accountable for his actions. However, we as a people need to take responsibility for our actions and acknowledge the wrongful actions of others “watch for falling rocks”, especially within our own race and families.

If black lives really matter to you, take the time tomorrow to watch the news or search the news on the Internet and go protest the next senseless murder of a black person. Protest the next drug bust of a black person, protest the next crime committed at the hand of a black person. Don’t protest to blame…protest to change!

Change starts at home! If we want to change the outcomes we see, let’s change the way people see us. Then stand united against the ones who refuse to acknowledge we matter black or white. You can’t throw rocks at a glass ceiling and expect it not to break and when it breaks expect not to get injured or ultimately die. ~KP

I haven’t read my bible in a long time…but I think and write about its contents everyday…I haven’t prayed for a minute…but I think and write about Him everyday…life circumstances can throw you in limbo…that only you can get yourself out of—God is always there to help—but you have to be willing to reach. ~KP

Attending church building obviously is optional…not biblical…for there…

Attending church building obviously is optional…not biblical…for there are those of us who genuinely seek after the Lord yet don’t warm a pew with our bottom every week. My conscience is crystal clear, though I would love to be a part of a godly community, and especially have a father like mentor whom I could respect and learn from.

Trouble is most of the pastors I have meet are more concerned about their church…than God’s people…lusting after more and more money to pad their pockets and to build a kingdom of their own…while funneling kibbles and bits to the Store House to help and feed God’s people. The typical protestant church service of stale hymns and sermon feels as hollow as a mindless tradition rendered corny. The alternative seems to be mega church worldly concert extravaganzas with trendy pastors and their white board presentations, and admittedly beautiful and solemn mass, but burdened with centuries of sacramental and doctrinal baggage.

Home groups, Bible studies and charity work seems the next best means of becoming involved with fellow believers, which I agree should be enjoyed, as not forsaking the assembly of other believers.

If attending church is optional (in my opinion anyway), loving others is not. The whole point of Christianity is loving other people and leading them to Christ by living a Godly lifestyle…not going to a church building—but being a member of the Body of Christ…which should represent The Church…a community of believers willing to make a different outside the walls of a comfort zone church building. ~KP

Today—is going to be a good day…Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. –Matthew 5:3

Today—is going to be a good day…help me…

Today—is going to be a good day…help me, God, to walk straight…I’ll follow your true path…keep me together…one heart…one mind…undivided—I’ll worship you in joyful fear all day…as a light in a dark place. ~KP©

Today—is going to be a good day…the door…

Today—is going to be a good day…the door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared…our destiny is linked to your preparation—prepare yourself to live in God’s abundant blessings. ~KP©

Today—is going to be a good day…the blessings…

Today—is going to be a good day…the blessings of the Lord are upon those who love Him…people can say and do a lot of things —but they cannot take away your Joy or Peace unless you give it to them. ~KP©
