Let the dead bury the dead

"Let the dead bury the dead", Jesus told a man who was experiencing great grief from the loss of his father.



These are some very harsh words for someone to take during a grieving period in their life.  It seems like Jesus cared less about the poor man dilemma on making funeral arrangements. It appears that Jesus showed no sympathy at all about the loss of his loved one.  But after careful review of this particular scripture, it wasn't that Jesus did not care,  Jesus just did not have time to wait for the man to go bury his family member.  I am sure the man was offended by Jesus insensitivity, but I am positive the man realize Jesus had no time to waste!  He did not have time to wait on anyone due to the great mission He came to carry out.
To those who reads my posts, I do not try to say or post things to offend anyone. I try to post truth based things like the crisis in Iraq which many did not like the graphic nature of the pictures.   I can not post what everyone likes or wants to hear. I try to post what God likes which is the truth!
God bless you!

Matthew 8:21-22 KJV
And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

What are great signs and wonders?

What are the great signs and wonders Jesus spoke about would happen in the last days? In 2014, I am seeing great signs and wondering why?

ISIS in Iraq crucifying a child 2014



I see and  hear about senseless murders and ruthless acts of violence every day.  I see on the news great evil going on all around the world.  The worse I have witnessed so far is the people who are being slaughtered to death in Iraq.  I see all this as great signs of the end times and wonder why? Why was I created and put here to be apart of this evil world?  I pray and wonder why do God allow all these things to happen?  I see great abominations and wonder why?


"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
[5] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
 [6] And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
[7] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
[8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.
[9] Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
[10] And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
 [11] And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
 [12] And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
[13] But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
[14] And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."

 Matthew 24:4-14 KJV

                 Inspirational and Spiritual Poetry

We all need inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes just a kind word can be a blessing and it can help us get  through our darkness hour!! During those struggling times, I try to find some inspiring words to share and comfort. A good encouraging word can turn someones life around.

"He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted and proclaim LIBERTY to the captives."
Isaiah 61:1

                                  My Testimony 

I was born and raised in Detroit MI. I grew up in an unstable home. My father physically and mentally abused my mother. His abusiveness had an adverse effect on me as well as my siblings. It caused homelessness and a lot of mental anguish. It also caused a great deal of hardship and grief.

As a result, I did not attend school regularly. I developed a leaning disability. I did not like going to school. I could not read and comprehend like other kids in elementary. I struggled though middle school and eventually dropped out in the 9th grade.

 I did not get involved in any criminal activity during this time, but I wasn’t doing anything constructive with my life either. I was not interested in sports or anything else that would make my life better.

 I began smoking marijuana at around sixteen years old. I tried alcohol, but didn’t like the taste or the feeling of being drunk. So I stuck with smoking weed until I meet crack in 1984.

 My life quickly grew out of control. I lied, cheated, and stole to support my crack habit. My only purpose in life was to get high. I lost friends and family members trust and respect. Getting high was all that mattered to me.

 At twenty-seven, I committed my first felony that lead me to prison. It was one of the worse experience s of my life. I was completely lost and did not know or understand just how serious things were.

 As result of my insanity, I went to prison several more times. My last visit was indeed the lowliest and darkest periods in my life. I lost all hope about myself. Despair became my best friend as I sit in the cold jail cell. I thought of ways to end my life because I did not want to go through the pain and suffering anymore. But at my lowest moment, something happened. The Lord came and touched my heart and gave me a reason to continue on.

Today, I use my experience to help inspire and uplift others. I want my poems to glory God and give encouragement and inspiration to the "Brokenhearted"
