I ador you,
How can I not?
Your love covers my sin,
In you I triumph,
In you I win,

I need you,
I need you like trees need sunlight to live, to flourish, to breathe,
Withou you I cannot breathe,
A blind man walking,
Without you I cannot see,

I feel you,
I feel you like a 1st love,
You are LOVE,
I feel you within me,
I feel you with me,
Your indelible presence,

I see you,
My vision has never been more clear,
You shielded me in my ignorance,
You guide me,
Your spirit,
Ravish me Jesus,

I trust you,
With all my heart,
My soul,
My mind,
Who else is their to run to?
Who else shall I run to?
Because of you there is nothing I should run from,

I love you,
I love you Jesus,
I love you because you LOVED me 1st.


Anybody that knows me knows that I have no problem with holding political officials accountable for their actions, but they also know that I have no problem holding the people accountable for their actions which contribute to their own circumstances as well. Yes, the education system in the inner city is completely inadequate, but so is the effort that many of the parents in the inner city put into making sure their children value their education, as well as making sure that their children have the proper learning environment at home. Yes, in our beloved country, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, we have a criminal justice system that targets Black and Latino men, but are we in the Black and Latino community doing enough to redirect the energy of those Black and Latino men??? We can teach them to take that same effort that they use to involve themselves in criminal activity to start a business, get a college degree, become a Minister or a community leader. Also, those Black and Latino men have to want better for themselves. They must want to do and live righteously. It is true that our Government has allowed BIG food corporations to genetically alter, and to place unhealthy and poisonous chemicals in our food, but how many of us in the inner city are making a concerted effort to feed our families HEALTHY food. I'm am well aware that many people live in food deserts. However, I am also aware that many of those same people whom live in food deserts will take public transportation to go to see a movie outside of their own community, or put on their Friday best to go to a club two cities over from their own. How is it that that in the richest country in the world 46 Million people live in povert, 20 million live in extreme poverty, and 6 million have an income that is totally depent upon welfare? How can it be that over 50% of people in America make below 34 thousand dollars a year, and 24% make a salary that is below the poverty line. Since the 1970s, even with inflation, the average income has risen only by 7%; while at the same time salaries for top executives at large American corporations went being an average of 20 times higher than the lowest paid employees at their respective companies to 200 times higher. No country can sustain itself with such a disparity between the haves and have-nots. We know that their are many reasons for poverty: single parent homes, people who live beyond their means, people who live as though they are comfortable in poverty, people who are unmotivated and do not fight for their rights, Wall Street greed, Washington impotence, a selfish society that ignores "the least of these," an economy that is built mostly on consumerism, an economy that overfocuses on the empowerment of women while forgeting to also empower men. I could go on! I'll stop there! The Body of Christ must do better. The community must do better. The Government must do better. WE MUST DO BETTER.

Prayer For Our Daughters

I pray that you'll remain our daughters,
I pray that you grow up on time, but not too quick,
That you understand the books, but recognize the slick,
I pray that your dreams never include tongue rings and a pole,
Tight red mini skirts, a stroll, and a man who for his life can't stay out of the hole,
That life can take its toll,
I pray that you walk not in dark but in light,
I pray that you give Christ your life,
I pray that you become a righteous man's wife,
I pray that you never let a man beat you,
That you have a father in the household so you know how a man is suppose to treat you,
That you don't let them mislead you,
I pray that you remain our daughters,

I pray that you are empowered by GODLY morality,
Not by exploiting your sexuality,
That you adopt a doctor's or lawyer's mentality,
I pray that you find strength in a GODLY reality,
I pray that when chooses to no longer hide, you find your way to where GOD resides,
I pray that you pray,
I pray that in HIM you stay,
That your tomorrow is better than your today,
That yesterday does not get in your way,
Progress unimpeded,
Hatred deleted,
I pray that you continue to listen,
Continue to hear,
That you'll trust with caution but without fear,
I pray that you remain our daughters...In Jesus name I pray...Amen


Christ is not separated from religion,
He's separated from the FALSE,
The fakes,
The phonies,
Self-righteous ones,
Holier than thou type persons,
Who would have you believe that Christ is separated from the LOST,
Flesh removed in patches,
Nails driven in hands,
Bones separated from their sockets,
Love at what COST?
Healing for the wounded,
Mercy for the merciful,
Warmth for the cold,
We cling to it like a MOTH,
Fatherhood for the fatherless,
Remember this,
We can afford to be separated from the world,
But we cannot afford to be separated from the CROSS...

Christ Is For

Christ is for the liars and the cheaters,
The gangsters and the divas,
The swagger filled hustlers, HE can change their demeanor.
Christ is for the found and the lost,
Misguided by the love at what cost?
Christ is for the broken, abandoned, and frail,
Overlooked on purpose, but the have a story to tell,
Christ is for the lady and the prostitute,
The wealthy and the destitute,
The fertile and the barren,
Christ is for the sinner and the saint, whosoever will,
A new man for the inner man is why his blood was spilled,
Christ is for the woman in love with a woman, man in love with a man,
Christ can save them and change them right where they stand,
Christ is for the peacemakers and warmongers,
The ones that abstain and the whoremongers,
The believers and non-believers, GOD is among us,
Christ is for the Buddhist, Jew, Muslim and Christian,
Deny him now and get denied later, accept him while you're still living,
Christ is for the elderly and the youth,
Christ is for her,
Christ is for him,
Christ is for me,
Christ is for you...
