Psalms 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord..

Reading my email this morning, I wanted to post this story and request that you listen to your spirit. For each day, the Lord calls on us to do His will.

Peace & Wholeness.

This was written by a Metro Denver Hospice Physician. 

I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5pm, stuck in traffic on
Colorado Blvd., and my car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely
managed to coast , cursing, into a gas station, glad only that I would not
be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow
truck. It wouldn't even turn over. Before I could make the call, I saw a
woman walking out of the quickie mart building, and it looked like she
slipped on some ice and fell into a gas pump. So, I got out to see if she was
okay When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than
that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with
dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I
picked it up to give it to her. It was a nickel.

At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the
ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car
seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95.

I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying
'I don't want my kids to see me crying! ,' so we stood on the other side of
the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California and that
things were very hard for her right now. So I asked, 'And you were praying?'
That made her back away from me a little, but I assured her I was not a
crazy person and said, 'He heard you, and He sent me.'

I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she
could fill up her car completely, and while it was fueling, walked to the
next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates
for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the car,
who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and
talking a little.

She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City. Her boyfriend left
2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she
wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan. 1, and finally, in desperation, had
called her parents, with whom she had not spoken in about 5 years. They
lived in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on
her feet there.

She packed up everything she owned in the car. She told the kids they
were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live
there. I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for
safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, 'So, are you
like an angel or something?'

This definitely made me cry. I said, 'Sweetie, at this time of year angels
are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people.'

It was so incredible to be a part of someone else s' miracle. In addition, of course,
you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home
with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect
the mechanic won't find anything wrong.

Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter
of their wings...

Psalms 55:22 ' Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He
shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.'

My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless,
especially for the months left in2011, and I picked you.

Please pass this to four people you want to be blessed ...
Here is the prayer:

'Father, I ask You, to bless my children, grandchildren, friends, relatives
and blogging buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your
love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit this very
moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is
self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace, In Jesus'
precious name. Amen.'

I know I picked more than four -- you can, too.

Voter Suppression

Voter suppression is in full swing in this country. The pain endured by our Black leaders during the civil-rights era, has returned. Mrs. Copper a 96-year-old resident of Chattanooga Tennessee was refused a driving license, after showing numerous residency and identity documents, for failure to produce a marriage certificate. In some states, a Veteran ID card won’t suffice as a voting ID. You can die for your country, but you’re not eligible to vote because you lack a state photo ID?

Photo ID mandates are the most pervasive new restriction on the right to vote. In 2011, Republicans have proposed these laws in more than 30 states, requiring Americans to possess and show unexpired government-issued photo identification as a prerequisite to voting, but a Veteran ID is invalid in some states.

If you know someone who wants to vote this year, assist him or her to obtain a valid photo-ID card. Don’t abandon our struggle against James Crow Esq. for it's an essential part of our ancestral duty.

For more information regarding voter suppression, see the attached link.

Let the Bell of freedom Ring

It is an interesting time for the Islamic faithful. Today large portions of Middle Eastern countries are weary of Autocracy and Totalitarianism rule with Islamic tendencies. As we watch these events unfold, will the secular world accept the new governments? As the Egyptian voters go to the polls and elect a new parliament. My hope is the new parliament can vote-in freedom for all Egyptians.

Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau has been quoted “We want a civil state, based on Islamic principles a democratic state, with a parliamentary system, with freedom to form parties, press freedom, and an independent and fair judiciary.” But, what paradigm does the military fit into this picture? People in Tahrir square died at the hands of the autocracy system, supported by the military. If Egyptians want a new chapter of freedoms, they must create a paradigm to abandon the military’s governmental power structure. As Egypt parliament rewrites their constitution, there in the military will report as a council to the Prime Minister and be consider not a closet totalitarianism structure.

I hope Egypt can align itself with God. Having a civilian based government with Islamic principles of faith based on categories of human behavior as the Quran defined as Sunnah. We must remember the practice of worshiping God is separate from running a government.

Stay awake for temptation has come

How many times have you pulled a book from the shelf of your library, fully intending to complete several chapters, without distractions? But, only to discover after the second chapter, the story is less interesting, and your eyes began to become heavy and you fell asleep. You are awaken by a sound or something else, as you look around, the book your holding is slightly held in your right hand  while your left hand hangs over the chair arm. You realized the full intention of reading on is not of interest. As you search and come to find an overwhelming emotion of sad feelings, of a missed goal.

Most times our best intention doesn’t come true in many applications in life. Lost lovers, missed prom dates, missed meetings, foreclosed house, or a lost job, and even lost hope in corporate and political leadership. Our dysfunctional civilization, clings to hopes and dreams, and if not attained scars us emotionally, unable to comprehend if we live as an advance people.    

During times of struggle and lost dreams, the best comes out of us, shining beyond the tragedies of life. What can lessen these tragedies, living righteously propelling our civilization towards the next evolutionary phase? What stifles our ability to advance, sociological, psychological, or technological? We lack the courage to change our evolutionary path. The current value system rewards our consciousness and we feel things are ok. But are they?

Is the wealth dispersion ok with you? Knowing some people on this planet will try to sleep without eating food or to have clean water to drink tonight, are you ok with that? Sure, if you’re rich. How many 1%’ers are ready to walk away from their current paradigm. Give their wealth to the less fortunate, giving control to those who have no control. The 2011 Billionaires list broke two records, total number of listees (1,210), and combine wealth ($4.5 trillion). Now, the top 10 billionaires equate to 9 men with 1 woman. With 7-billion people on the planet, women should account for half of the top 10 billionaires. Why not? Representation is control; man’s ego is underdeveloped and shortsighted to relinquish control. Having the courage to relinquish control is perceived as not being successful. That bruises man’s ego and that is one reason why this civilization remains dysfunctional.          

Even during the time of Jesus Christ. People in his on camp fell asleep when situations demand staying awake causes one to fail. Was it not Peter, who Jesus asked to stay awake in the olive grove, before Jesus was arrested? Look at Matthew 26:41 "Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." Note the part ‘the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. We all must drink from the bitter cup. Troubles are sanctified and hearts are satisfied better than troubles are taken away.

Failure is not an option

This week the congressional debit committee wrestles with the message of their progress on lowering our national debit. News organizations are saying, “Sources tell us that failure to achieve a passable bill might be a reality.” Well I tell you failure is not an option, and here is the reason why.

For years, this country has prided itself by solving disease, creating robotics, inventing advanced airplanes, ECT... However, now, for reasons beyond comprehension we fail to or aren’t willing to pay the cost for living a lifestyle created from borrowed money. The fact is as we watch Europe make the hard decision required to maintain the euro. Don’t think living a lifestyle less than they are accustomed is something they look forward for? No, they aren't going to fail. Look, those who idolize wealth, freedom, and prosperity must come to grips and think with a clear mind and of one accord. Just like Europe is attempting to accomplish.

With that said, I liken our economic as a person sitting in a limo journeying down a narrow one-way street. They’ve been running stop signs, forgetting the suffering of others, that put them in the limo in the first place. Now a cliff, at the end of the road approaches leading them to devastation. The same devastation endured by Katrina, Irene and the 1%’ers financial debacle we experience today.

The U.S  congressional debit committee is attempting budget cuts and revenue enhancement that must happen. If the committee fails, the market will not. So, make the right choice now. Take the small pain to recover from your uncontrolled lifestyle, or the market won’t be so sympathetic, and force this country to incur a longer economic recovery. Therefore, congressional debit committee must develop a balance bill, pass it, and get it into law.

You see the Lord is watching after all. He will determine what pain we will endure.

Keep your prayers strong in the name of our Lord Jesus, for no other entity will care for you through harder times than Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Peace & Love
