God's Riches in Glory

Image
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…

Joy in the Morning

Joy Reid is excellent. Her punditry is impeccable. I have always been impressed with the incisive and well informed coverage she provides in combination with her special analysis of complex political issues. She is the only black female journalist to have a nationally syndicated show on MSNBC after Melissa Harris Perry's questionable departure. I look forward to her weekend show, follow her online and make a point of tuning in to any news show where she is a special guest host or panelist. I was thrilled to learn that she had been awarded her own show the Reid Report and her latest A.M. Joy, both well deserved.

By the same token, I was unhappy when I read a news article on the internet recently about her controversial run in or perhaps more accurately, misunderstanding with the Gay community concerning some remarks discovered on an old blog. This incidents brings to light some crucial issues of internet misrepresentation and fraud which is unfortunately running rampant on the web.…

To Some, The Inscrutable Social Media Web

Social media titans and their vaguely remarked territory on the web is not as mysterious as some might think, especially our elderly statesmen, senators who are questioning Facebook's CEO with rudimentary inquiries that make them sadly appear unprepared. This is where their interns can rush in to the rescue. The ones who can supply them with 'whiz cred' in short order. By the way, where are they?
Because now they are needed.

While there are a few older folks who are
whizes themselves on the web, daily surveying and surviving mind boggling computer antics,
cryptic code play and keeping up with all else web in flying colors with code skills and old school temperament intact, millenials, a generation from which Zuckerberg hails, rule the internet. Facebook is the proof in the pudding. Collaborating with them to make the social media world more safe and equitable in the media data share arena should be top priority. Better preparedness could go a long way.

"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.
