Great, Powerful and Flawed

I have a decided to start reading more. When I was younger, I used to order books from the school book club and couldn’t wait for them to come. It was like Christmas for me. Then, after I went to bed, I would crack my bedroom door open, so that I could get light from the hallway and sneak and read my books under the covers. That is how much I loved reading.

I have to say that I stopped reading for a while for a few reasons, which I won’t go into, but now suddenly, I have an insatiable appetite for reading. Right now I’m interested in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, President John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X and Maya Angelou. I’m also getting ready to go back to school and get my degree. It’s my biggest regret that I did not finish college. But that is about to change.

But that is not what this blog is about. I’ve made a new commitment to write on this blog again, but my posts will not resemble anything from the past. That is done and I’m on to a new future. I am going to finish school, write a few books and read, read, read. Which brings me to the book I just got finished reading.

The name of the book was called “I Shared the Dream” by Georgia Davis Powers. Georgia, was the first Black and first woman senator who was elected in 1967 and served for 21 years in the state of Kentucky. But I must admit that the reason I read the book is because I read she had an affair with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Many people don’t want to accept this, but Georgia was with Dr. King the night before he was assassinated. I know this to be true only because my oldest brother was mentored by a minister who was in Dr. Kings inner circle. This man confirmed it to my brother.

I remember when I first heard about Dr. Kings infidelities, I was shocked like most people. I remember my Dad, who drove cab in NY for many years telling us how he picked up Dr. King in his cab and how Dr. King lit up a cigarette and he was surprised and we were too (when he told us). But it’s also true, Dr. King was a smoker.

Well as I read Georgia Powers book, I started thinking about men and how there is nothing worse than putting another human being on a pedestal. Women, I think, have this problem more than men. And don’t let him be  a man of wealth, prestige or fame. We go nuts!

Georgia was a few years older than Dr. King, middle aged, separated from her husband and not feeling very good about herself. And boom. This civil rights icon wants to take their friendship to another level and she just could not resist. It didn’t help that she had a dream that she was intimate with him, even though, she never had those feeling about him before. I have real issues with cheating, but I actually saw and understood how this could happen to a woman. Even me.

The affair part of their relationship lasted about a year until Dr. Kings death and I believe she was the last woman with him before he died. Not even his wife had been with him (and I mean both physically and sexually). The book dealt with much more than their affair. I found it quite interesting to hear the behind the scenes during that time and also about her own political career.

She seemed to gloat a bit, which women tend to do, when they have been singled out by a “special” man. You can tell that she thought she was the only mistress, but sadly, that is just not true. She also seemed unrepentant. Almost like it was her destiny to be intimate with this great man. I think she had a right to tell her story, but I have to say I was disappointed that she chose to tell it while Coretta Scott King was still alive.

It’s so hard for us to see our “heroes” this way. For many it takes away from their greatness and I have to say I have felt that way. But when we choose to see our heroes as they are, which is human, we will be able to see the good and the bad and appreciate them for what they did.

Georgia Davis Powers was very flawed like us all. She was a serial cheater, but she did a lot for civil rights and the state of Kentucky. She will have to stand before God for how she lived in her personal life as we all will. She is 91 years old still living with her husband.

 

On a Personal Note..lol

I did want to say this…in the past I have used this blog as a place to vent about my life. It did resonate with some people, but if I could turn back the hands of time, I would never have shared anything about vision.

Vision is such a personal thing and it’s so  fragile. Whether it’s a vision about a business, having a house, a family etc, my recommendation is keep it to yourself. If you put it out there it can change the entire trajectory of where God wants it’s to go. And ladies, whatever you do, DO NOT share anything of a personal nature about a specific mate on a blog, or to a person. Trust me you will live to regret it.

I look back now and view it all as a waste of time. It may not have been, but it certainly feels like it. I think my sharing did more damage than Good. When God spoke to Mary, the mother of Jesus, she quietly pondered those things in her heart. She didn’t broadcast them and even if you don’t mean it that way, it will come across that way.

As for me and Boaz (whoever that is) I am praying for God’s perfect will to be done in my life. If that includes a husband, nice. But if it doesn’t include one, maybe even better. I don’t think I have the gift to be single, but time is late and I may be able to coast on into eternity without a mate (my best friend HATES to hear me say that) lol.

One thing I do know is that your mate will want to be with you and if he doesn’t, he is not the one. You won’t have to convince him of who he is and if God’s speaks to him and he says no, God will send you someone better. That’s is all I have to say about this subject. I’m going to try to get to “Caitlynn Jenner” soon.

What in the World?

Honestly, I know it’s not just me. I know that others of you have to be feeling the terrible shift that this world has taken. Yes, it’s been bad, but suddenly to me things seem worse than they have ever been. Many of my friends and family are feeling the same. I think we will look back and remember 2015 as a turning point and think “that is where it all changed”.

I really feel the need to write more. I really need a writing job. I have so much I want to say and it has nothing to do with what is going on personally, for the most part. There is so much going on in the world and being the opinionated person that I am (haha) I always have something to say.

Where do I start? I just logged off Facebook and read a report about a former disgruntled employee of a news station, shooting a reporter and cameraman live on air!!! All I could do was shake my head and say a prayer for the families. You can leave your house for work in the morning and not make it home!!

In the next few weeks I’m going to start tackling some of the current events, of course from a Christian perspective because that is who I am (a Christian). I meant to tackle Bruce Jenner and his transition a few weeks back and now there is so much more. I wanted to deal with the Duggar Family Scandal and the Ashley Madison debacle. There is so much to write about. Stay turned. I may on occasion share something personal, but not too much. I think the direction of this blog may change. But time will tell and we will see.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

The Journey Continues

i am moving wsahington dcIt’s been well over a year that I have officially been in a live in situation, but now that journey has come to an end. I have to move by the end of the month and guess what? I don’t have a clue where I am going. Well let me rephrase that. I do have an idea, but just not sure yet how I will get there, but I have an idea. lol Does that make sense?

I know, it’s a little crazy. I know some folks may view this as a haphazard way of living and I have my questions about it, especially at my age, but I know that God brought me to this place where I am living, with this particular elderly woman to help her toward the “winter” of her life. And that is exactly what God told me. But often people don’t appreciate what they have until it’s gone.

One thing I am sure of, is that it’s definitely time to go. I can’t wait to move even though it’s a faith walk. Faith is my strong area. Especially in situations like this. I wish I could plan like most, but for now, I am walking by faith. I will keep you posted.

2 Corinthians 5:7 New King James Version (NKJV)

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

 

The Future is Not Fixed!

Years ago I was a part of a ministry where the Pastor used to always say “Destiny is not left of to chance, it’s a matter of choice. The longer I live, the more I understand the truth of this statement. Yes, I believe God’s final worldwide plan will be done, but in our own personal lives, I know that it’s the decisions that we make that are going to decide where we will end up. I cringe when I hear Christians say “if it’s meant to be, it will happen”. Sorry but if that is your belief system, we will have to agree to disagree. I have watched too many things fall to the ground and die, which I know was in the plan and purpose of God. When people where telling me, it didn’t happen because it was not meant to be, God was showing me that I missed it. I have watched too many Christians backslide because what they were promised never happened and what they didn’t realize is, they had the wrong mentality. They sat on the sidelines thinking God was going to do it all, when there was something they needed to do. That is why I have learned to be proactive when God gives me instructions. That is why I am back on this blog. God showed me it plays a part in my destiny. Let me tell you what happened to get my attention and bring me back:

Several hours ago, I went to see The Terminator Genisys. As I headed to the theater the Lord told me there would be a  message in the movie and I almost missed it. Sorry for you super deep Christians, but God speaks to me through movies often. I almost missed the message and saw Ant Man, lol. I was standing at the box office and changed my mind again and am I glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie with all of it’s twists and turns. Without spoiling it, the movie is very much about the twist and turns towards destiny and when the movie was over, the last words spoken were “the future is not fixed!” Well that got my attention. God knows how to do that. I knew instantly that the Lord was letting me know that my destiny was at stake and something was happening that would try to challenge it. I also instinctively knew that I needed to get back to writing, at least today. God knows that I have lived through missing enough, that I refuse to not get what He intends for me to have.

Perhaps this one blog post can stop the plan of the enemy against me. Perhaps it will help someone else to not make a wrong decision, or move in the wrong direction toward the wrong thing or person. God knows what we need. He is looking for obedience to what he has already revealed.

Abraham and Sarah became impatient about God’s plan and Sarah gave her handmaid Hagar to Abraham, to have a child with, since she was past the childbearing years. This may seem innocent and since God is the giver of life, we may think this was God’s plan. I know it’s hard to look in the face of a beautiful child and say “you don’t belong here”. Yes, Ishmael was born outside of the promise of God. Isaac was the promised child. And the result is the descendants of Ishmael and Isaac are still fighting to this day! This is due to disobedience

Yes, we can create circumstances and relationships and even children, who were not in God’s perfect plan! Why? Because God has given us the free will to do so. But beware! When you do that. you will have to live with the consequences of your actions and that can end up haunting you for the rest of your life! So don’t disobey and create your own hell! Fix your future by cooperating with God!

 

The Case of Bill Cosby

 

Bill Cosby, Speech Criminal

It’s all over the news. Formerly, Americas Dad, one of the greatest roles models for Black America, exposed as a fraud! The African-American community was not only upset, but the majority were in denial. It had to be a conspiracy against this powerful Black man. But I knew differently.

Several years ago, before all of Mr. Cosby’s dirty deeds were exposed, God showed me Bill Cosby in a dream. He was in a room with a few other celebrities, which included Chris Brown, who was also being exposed at the time for beating up his then girlfriend Rihanna. I remember waking up from the dream wondering why on earth I had dreamed about Bill Cosby. But with time, it was revealed.

My blog is called “a prophetic walk” for a reason. This calling can be very interesting! And each prophetic person will learn how God deals with them, personally. I know I am a seer. God often shows me things YEARS before it happens. It’s no fun because I am often labeled as false because what I see takes so long to manifest. But it doesn’t matter. It still happens. To date, the longest I have waited to see something God showed me happen has been about 22 years!!! Yes, that long. But in the case of Mr. Cosby, I came to realize, God was showing me, like Chris Brown, some dirt would soon come out on him as well. And I had this dream in 2009!

I have never felt Bill was being railroaded or that there was a conspiracy. From what I heard, it’s a known fact among some in Hollywood that he is a predator. The public just didn’t know it.

So now that Cosby’s die-hard defenders (Whoopi Goldberg and Jill Scott) have deserted him, what will be his end? Well one thing that is important when anyone is exposed is to admit it and apologize and make amends. But few men have that kind of character, especially in the face of millions of people.

It saddens me that this will be his legacy. All he has done means nothing now. Just like OJ Simpson. But that is why we cannot put people who we don’t really know on a pedestal. The arm of flesh will always fail you! But God won’t. I pray that Bill Cosby will repent and come to know Jesus, because that is his only hope. And I dare say, his drugging and philandering days are over.

So what can we draw from this story? One thing is be who you say you are. But also, be sure your sins will find you out!

Numbers 32:23New King James Version (NKJV)

23 But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the Lord; and be sure your sin will find you out.
