GOD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE

Posted by hashiki on January 28, 2009

” He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the LORD, and he said: “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.”  Genesis 28:12-13 (NIV)

Too often we believe that God is some distant and inapproachable object who remains out of our reach.  I hear people say that they are searching, or looking for God, as though He is lost.  Yet, it is you and I who are aloof, distant, and hard to reach.

A MOTHER CRIES

A shot echoes through the city
Lodging in the heart of a child
Destroying dreams of innocence
Shattering hopes of a bright future
A future filled with laughter,

Working Together For Your Good

Posted by hashiki on January 15, 2009

Just like John 3:16, I believe that most people (well many) can rattle off to you from the top of their heads Romans 8:28.   Don’t feel bad if you can’t, just open the link and read.  You’ll say, “oh yeah, I know those words”.  Many times we speak them and read them, and they are just words to us.  Good words.  Encouraging words.  We even speak them, particularly Romans 8:28, as an affirmation and a statement of faith, when we are facing uncertain and trying times.

Today, I am rejoicing at a divine realization and ephiphany that God has made clear to me regarding Romans 8:28 in my life.

Don’t let anger control you

Posted by hashiki on January 12, 2009

I allowed myself to get so upset with someone last night that I ended up with chest pains and my blood pressure soared so high that I was seeing stars.  I was already having a day where I felt overwhelmed because I was doing so many things, and here I allowed some fool to just push me over the edge.

My Goings On

Posted by hashiki on January 7, 2009

I have been extremely busy over the last few months and as a result, I have not been able to remain as visible and present in some of the groups that I’ve founded, lead, or either belong to.  At this juncture, I am doing my best to spread everything out so that I can continue to be effective in all areas.

I recently shared some of my latest goings on with one of my groups.  I’d like to share it here as well.  Mostly because I desire your prayer for God to use me mightily in all that He’s called me to do and to give me the strength to do everything well.

The Tearful Eyes of Bernice

Posted by hashiki on January 6, 2009

As we approach Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day, I would like to share a poem I wrote last year in commemoration. 

THE TEARFUL EYES OF BERNICE

Coretta Scott King & daughter Bernice at the funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The tearful eyes of Bernice

Made me cry and also grieve

As one little girl watched another little girl

Mourn before the whole wide world.
