God's Riches in Glory

When I speak of love and money lining up and the result being endless and boundless prosperity, I am speaking metaphorically. True wealth flows from the fruits of the spirit that are produced as a result of faith in God and belief in his exceeding abundance which is evident in God's creation. Philippians 4:19 states that God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.However, there are the hard realities of extreme poverty and lack that abound on our planet. In many areas across the globe there is a lack of resources and sense of hopelessness.However, the human spirit is resilient and those of great faith know that there is no limit to the wealth God's favor through belief and standing on his word can produce. There is also much giving and projects of people helping people through church programs and public charities. Neighbors, friends and families often take care of each other.As the song goes, "it is God's will that every need shoul…

"Help Somebody"

I am topping this Facebook post from five(5) years ago today. Helping folks in need is always on time...

Scripture-Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Help your neighbor. If you have it to give why not help others? Of course our country is known for being the most generous in the world. Our giving strength should be reflected more in our cities and job offerings. If everyone has what they need, their heart's desire and dream what is the problem? No utopia,but at least it's a start in good gaining leverage in the world. Of course,not everyone wants to be a billionaire or millionaire. No one I believe chooses to live in poverty either.

I think the President set a good example in this recently by committing a percentage of his salary in a demonstration of solidarity with furloughed Federal workers. On a broader scal…

"Mighty" Good

"We pondered your love-in-action ,God, waiting in your temple. Your name, God, evokes a train of Hallelujahs wherever It is spoken, near and far; your arms are heaped with goodness-in-action.
Be glad, Zion Mountain; Dance, Judah's daughters! He does what he said he'd do!" 
Psalm 48:12-17

I just stopped by to tell you, to remind you, to inspire you, to urge you that in the face of all the madness God is Good.  God's mercy endures forever. No matter what you may see and observe with your human vision being dished out to the world.

There is indeed plenty to be either deeply concerned, overjoyed, and unfortunately, in way too many cases outright horrified about.

You might be worn out. You might have been thrown out. You might be locked out. You may have been pushed out!  You might even be tripped out , played out and shut out. BUT God's goodness-in- action will show up and show out. God will in acts of divine grace, will and intercession let you out, free you fr…

"Love Currency": Happy Valentine's Day!

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is God;and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love." 1 John 4:7-8

Whenever love is involved it seems many of us wax poetic. Today, I have dug deep into the archives and have uncovered one of my favorite messages with an accompanying poem entitled "Love is the Currency". An audio version is enclosed and a video can be found soon on my You Tube channel. God bless your day.

Wishing you all the love you can possibly give and receive today and everyday.

Love & blessings,

Rev. Cynthia Wilson

The Importance of Your 2014 Midterm Vote

What is a campaign? It if anything is a vigorous
effort at promoting a cause,a person,an idea or candidate who is more than worthy of the drive and energy required to achieve the purposed outcome or result. It is also a period of intensive education and outreach to needy constituents longing for fair and comprehensive representation by qualified and capable candidates.Whether securing votes can be best accomplished through phone banking,half minute television or two-five minute You Tube videos,in person meet and greets,book promotions,town hall meetings, time tested sterling political track records or door to door canvassing, voter turn out is key. Without question this midterm election needs an infusion of voter  capital, citizens exercising  their unfettered right to vote.  The social,economic and political soul of our country is at stake. We are down to the wire. The mid-term election is exactly one week away.While it is usually an election that does not get as much voter turn out …

God's Justice,Not ”Just Us”-7.15.13

Let justice roll down like mighty waters and righteousness as an everlasting stream-Amos 5:24 Back in the day a term which some might call a slang phrase,a definition for which may be found in the Urban Dictionary ,or one of comedian Richard Pryor's seminal jokes, is Just Us. Instead of Justice,black people called it just-us because of the lopsided results often found in the court and prison system for black people. As passions continue to ignite, righteous indignation and anger erupt into hues and cries for justice, building a groundswell with which to be reckoned, let us remain prayerful and hopeful as we call on God for direction. We pray that Trayvon Martin and the countless others who have been killed in similar manner and not guilty verdicts returned throughout the years won't have died without vindication and in vain. God will answer. When God answers, pray to be guided by that answer. An answer which is certain to fill hearts and minds with not only a peace whi…

The Lost Art of Letter Writing

Word has it the art of letter writing has gone somewhat missing in the wake of the text and email boom.

In our society it is important to write. You need to write lists,notes to yourself, thank you notes to people who've done you a good service,term papers for school,books to sell,your inner most feelings to loved ones and so on and so forth. So many of us,myself included,get so used to the ease and communication of digital and electronic formats, we often don't take the time to sit down,reflect and write a needed letter. Go ahead take the time out. Write!
