You Don't Have To Be Old To Live Right---Help Desk

To those of you who think being saved is about being old---I beg to differ. Being saved is about coming into the knowledge that you believe in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that your desire to be a CHRISTian is now evident in the life you've decided to live. We make a decision to be called CHRISTian and with this decision the requirement is that people can see CHRIST in you.

When I was younger, I thought only old folks had to have their lives right and be living right because they were closer to death. I know that might sound childish but when I was a child, I thought like a child. Now that I'm old and have grown up, I have put away childish thinking. With that, I understand that death has no age. I also now know that death has no affect on the believer. Death to the believer is life, when we are in Christ. (READ: 2 Corinthians 5:1-21)

It is my heart's desire that young people would give their lives to Christ. Remember good deeds can't get you in heaven, it is your belief. Nevertheless, doing what is right is better for us when we stand before the judgment seat of Christ. I would just like to compel our youth of today to do what is right. There's a book by Charles Sheldon called "In His Steps". I read this book when I was in bible college for the first time and have since shared it with some teenagers. I believe that this is a great resource for teens to put them on the track of doing what is right.

We must all stand accountable for what we do but if we help those who are younger than we through guidance; maybe we'll see a change in our youth. So to all of you who know to do what's it.

It's A New Day

As I sat and watched our 44th President being sworn into office, my soul was over-joyed. I couldn't help but think about my grandmother, the late LB Ford and how she managed to make it in Shreveport, Louisiana during the turbulant times of segregation. I can remember the stories of how she would go down town Shreveport to WoolWorth and had to enter in the back. I couldn't help but think about how she felt when the late great Dr. Martin Luther King came to Shreveport.

All the struggles for such a time as this. But in as much as I am grateful, I still feel uneased when I go into a restaurant and our caucasion counterparts will look you in the face but never speak. I still felt the agony of the past when my child was stopped in Shreveport by one of our caucasion police (for nothing). So to me although today marked a landmark event, I still know that there is so much more needed in Louisiana.

Then I think about my kids who grew up military and was taught to love everybody regardless of the color of their skin. And I silently pray that my son won't date any of those white girls at the private school he attends in Shreveport. Not because I don't want a white daugther in law, but because I don't want my child thrown in jail for rape or labeled because of his preference. So, how do you explain this to a child...that he has to be careful who he dates because of where he lives and the color of his skin? I guess, you just teach him history and pray that he doesn't silently hate others because of what his ancestors went through.

In a world of change, I wonder why old morals or habits refuse to fade away. I wonder why some still find it hard to love others because of their skin color. Could it be that God has allowed more interacial dating so we can get the picture of how He feels about us? We all are a part of eachother. It's evident in our history and the pages of mine read candidly about a grandma named Dina who never knew a black man but bore children from her masters. So as you see, nothing is new under the sun; but the Son simply is trying to get us to see that we all are His children.

As I watched all the people in Washington, I thought about a place that will resemble much of what we saw today. Everyone existing together, on the same accord, and with feelings of true admiration towards a man, but it won't be President Obama we will be waiting to hear, but we'll be waiting to hear the voice of a man name JESUS. All together regardless of our skin color or gender but solely upon the merits of our belief while we were on Earth.

So as our country embarks upon something new, we should try to embrace something old but still able to mend people together.....LOVE. Try loving outside of your circle, outside of your family, and outside of your churches. Try loving inspite of what is done for you, or how you feel. Just love because love covers a multitude of faults and loves meets the needs of others through service.
Be Blessed

Is It Ever A Good Idea To Divorce---HELP DESK

I pray that we learn to work out the differences in our marriages instead of divorcing. Jesus said Moses put divorces into affect because of the hardening of man's heart. You know that heart that fails to forgive. People make era in decisions and so do you. Stop thinking that just because God has delivered you from something that your spouse is delivered to.

Sometimes the greatest thing that married people can do for one another is pray for each other and pray together.Now, sometimes divorce is only the most logic solution if you're life is in danger. I believe that you should be living in PEACE! It's bad enough when you don't have peace on the job and then come home to a home where there is no peace.

Sometimes people divorce for selfish cold hearted reasons. They don't even really realize why they left and they go get married to someone else and take that garbage into their new marriage. It is totally possible to be still in love with someone else but married to another. It's sad but it's true. You'll never give your all in a new marriage if you haven't resolved issues and feelings from an old marriage.

So is it a good idea? Sometimes it may be a necessary idea but no matter what kind of idea it is, just repent. Why am I repenting? You're repenting because if you would have consulted God in the beginning, you wouldn't have had to get a divorce. So the sin comes in when you marry for your own selfish reasons. Be Blessed

Sex Outside of Marriage---HELP DESK

Is it ever a good idea to test the goods before you marry the person? No! There is such a stift punishment for sexual sins because it goes against the spirit on the inside of you and your temple's stance as holy. I'm sorry for those of you who like the moments of feeling good but have become num to the shame afterwards. You know when you first started in those sexual relationships you use to get in the tub and try to scrub the dirt off. It's not that sex is a dirty thing, because there is a beauty so spiritual in the ability for two to actually be one in the flesh; but it can be a sinful event when it's not the proper time- and with sin, comes shame. And often the shame only last until our minds are turned reprobated....and we believe that we can do whatever we want because it's our body and we're grown.

Just stop! You wonder why you feel like knocking someone in the head with a bat....maybe it's because the last person you slept with was so seeded in anger and had murder so deep in the walls of their heart, and now you are infested with those spirits that rode in the person you slept with. Or you wonder why you're a female looking at another female and you aren't gay--maybe the person you were last with had a spirit of homosexuality that has now invaded your body. I know that might be deep, but I can go deeper. The fact is when you become open to sin, it opens the doors for spirits and spirits my dear are real!

When are we going to learn that some things are just not meant for us to do in our timing, but rather given by God as a gift--to those who have excepted the spiritual connection of marriage. Will it be when people start dying with aids to the point that there is no cover up? See, I'm convinced that our children don't believe that aids and other sexual transmitted diseases can kill you. Why? Because when do you ever read in the paper that Sis. Such and Such died from aids. I only know two people through the media that has actually been said to have died from aids...... Everyone else, it's "they died from kidney failure." Our kids need to know that people are dying everyday. You are just one bad decision away from having a sexual transmitted disease.

I don't promote condoms because I don't promote sex outside of marriage!
There is no such thing as safe the contrary their is a such as God protected sex. I've even known married people who are living with a spouse who has contracted HIV and the spouse are fine....That's because God protects and He honors marriage.

I'm hard because I was there. Having sex for no reason at all. Because unlike men, most women don't mature to get the full arousal or know what exactly their bodies can do until in their late twenties; so sex becomes more of his pleasure and her duty. It was but the grace of God that I made it without becoming a victim of myself, due to my inability to just say NO. So now, I come against ever lustful spirit that is reading this blog right now in the name of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is against you and my brother and sister is free, right now!!!
Matthew 26:41 "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

An Awakening Day

Today was filled with so many mixed emotions for me..... 1st I went to the funeral of my second grade teacher Ms. Helen Horton. Ms. Horton wasn't your average second grade teacher...she was the kind of teacher-mother combo that you'd love to hate but couldn't. With her mean demeanor she spoke volumes to a disobedient child; but with her gentle merciful hands, she showed love to a loveless child. I shall never forget the day she told me, "A young lady must always have integrity." I didn't know what integrity meant...what second grader would have. Nevertheless, all my life I've been on a quiet quest to embrace integrity. She had a pinch that would make you upright, and when you were good, a smile that would display pure delight. I'll fover keep her memory in my heart and in the way that I live....with integrity!

Then it was off to my book signing. As I sat there I thought about all the teachers that nurtured the writer in me. We should be grateful and celebrate educators all over because without someone teaching us how to read and write, there would be no authors.

I was so honored to be in the presence of so many who have embraced my spiritual quest to openly reveal my life, so that some young woman, somewhere will be healed. I was told today that our young men won't change until our young women change........I do believe that the strength of a woman will encourage a man but how can she change when she doesn't know how. The answer is always and most certainly....JESUS! So as the book was purchased and I signed every copy, I prayed a special prayer that JESUS would arrest the reader and allow this book "Not Until You're Ready" to break the strong holds that are in their lives.
So as it is I've awaken to the reality that life is but a vapor but with the same awakening I understand that it's up to me to make the most of the vapor! "Teach me Oh Lord, how to number my days upon the Earth."
Be blessed always

Preparing Yourself For Newness of Life----Help Desk

Hey you know the word of God says that you can't put new wine in an old bottle. So how can you put fresh ideas and new plans -or- new relationships and new spouses on top of all that old junk you have stored in the trunks of your heart?

Think about it: When you purchase new winter wear, don't you get rid of last years? Yeah I know, you keep pushing them towards the back of the closet just like you do the junk in your heart. Sooner or later the closet pole begins to weaken and then eventually, it breaks. Sounds had so much stuff in your heart until it began to weigh you down, and then finally there you were or still are, BROKEN. It would be so much easier if you just threw the old stuff out. ("Lay aside every weight and sin that so easily besets you!")
God is so faithful that He's even willing to get rid of your old stuff, if you give it to Him. So as you see, we don't just hold on to old material things; we hold on to old emotional hurts and God is waiting on you to throw it out.

Take inventory of this...Philippians 3:13-14 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before." Now that's the first half....Get rid of the old junk; forget the past. Now here's the second part..."I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Now the second half is....Press forward! As you press in your purpose, you'll see that there's an award in Christanity. New life brings new blessings. When you empty your vessel from all the junk, God will replenish you with newness of ideas, new love, new adventures, new activities, new plans, etc.

So get prepared for newness of life, by 1st getting rid of all the old stuff, second, by declaring and decreeing that your life will never be the same, and third, by allowing the Word of God to replenish, reconstruct, and renew you.
