Sleeping Beauty

During this very rainy Sunday and Monday sleeping and reading was the main motivation for the day. As for myself I find these moments to be very liberating forms of creative exercise.

Happy Birthday

Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. Romans 13:1,2

Happy birthday sir. Never thought in the 51 years of my life that I would ever see a President of Color. Who in there right mind would want to champion the virtues of this contry after 8 years of Cheyney(Bush was a puppet) a struggling economy, two wars,political parties so rooted in championing there idealogies that common sense is thrown out the window. Racism that is so prevalent that it appears not to be a factor. And most of all a decaying infrastructure that resembles a third world nation instead of the greatest nation in the world. Think about it why would you want be President of this ungreatful, narcissitic divided place? The answer is found in this piece out of Romans 13:2. This forecast by the Apostle Paul through the spirit of God is among us today.

Moving forward we need to respect the authority presented to us in the person of President Obama. In light of the present political climate and the state of affairs concerning the economy his efforts and leadership take on a negative tone from the far right and far left. As a result it appears that he is damn if he does and damn if he don't. But notice the humble manner in which the President deals with each attack and criticism concerning his governing ability. Faced with all of these challenges it would take a humble heart and a supernatural attitude to manage all of it. Inspite of what we think President Obama was positioned for this time not by the people but by God. If you are reading this and you ideals are to the far right or left this would appear to be unreal. There is a piece in Matthew 21 starting at verse 28 that will illustrate the point that I am making. Not only is his presidency verified through these two illustrations from Romans 13 and Matthew 21 but confirmed by the very makeup of his paternal and maternal lineage which incorporates the properties that at the root divides this nation. It is race.

Today I witness the celebration of 50 years in preparation by God of a man who leads the most powerful nation on earth. His election to this position was no accident. It was manifested in the heavens for such a time as this. Amen.

Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his house. Matthew 12:29

The truth of this statement visits me when I look back at a time in my life where addiction robbed me of life. There was this notion that the extent of my using was coined as recreational and fun. I was still a functional human being because I went to work and managed my relationships in a reasonable manner. I harmed no one or violated any laws. Using was the in thing to do amongst most of my friends. My recreational use afforded me an escape from the pressures of life. All of it was a lie.
Today I realize the truth of the manner. It was not necessary for me to use any substances to manage my life. The pitfalls (ups and downs) that occurred in my life are there to present an image that life is to complex and valuable to loose over substances and situations not under my control. The deceit and lies are manifested in a world fallen away from what the creator (God)intended. The strong man (Satan,devil) continues to rob us by virtue of his ability to deceive us and lead us from the truth of who we are. Lets not get it twisted in order to rob him of the power he has over us we have to bind him with the truth of God's word about who we are and the power we have in us to bind the strong man.
Ms Winehouse short lived life is the result of the strong mans lies about who we are. Although her wonderful talent as an artist was there it could have never manifested in a fallen world unless the strong man was bound. He robbed her of the life the creator had intended for her.
