"Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk."

“Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.”

"When its too tough for them, its just right for us!"
"Birds of a feather, flock together."

"You are the company you keep."

"What goes around, comes around."

"The happiness of your life depends on the quality of ‘Your thoughts."

“It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more 'manhood' to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.The”Christian life cannot manifest without divine love. Divine love means reaching beyond ourselves and our own families to strangers and treating them as we would ourselves. A person full of Divine love does not fear people or dangerous environments. Divine love requires that we go into the heart of darkness as shinning lights of God’s kingdom.

The practice of divine love will transform us into higher levels of glory. The old nature will gradually be reduced to allow the glory of God to be manifested within us. Divine love destroys every yoke of sin within our body as we become more and more like Christ. As we grow in Divine love the more we grow in the expression of God’s wisdom and power.

Living a life of divine love will not be easy. Growing in divine love demands a major sacrifice of our human nature. This is because our human nature is really our old sinful nature. Our sinful nature cannot coexist with divine love because it is not of this world. Divine love is a product of the kingdom of God. Human nature is a product of the world and all that it represents. Devine love goes against the grain of the world’s system and beliefs. In order to overcome the world you must be willing to give up this world’s system and its beliefs. This means that your old human nature will temporally suffer until the new nature takes over. Only then will you experience the feeling of joy and freedom from the world’s grip.

* Humbly Ask God for Divine Love

* Meditate on scriptures relevant to divine love

* Understand that you are a new creation in Christ, creating in divine love

* Establish a daily prayer routine to allow peace to grow within your hearts

* Seek God’s presence hourly in order to stay in divine love

* Be willing to sacrifice the old nature for the new nature

* Love the strangers and neighbors who in your circle of influence

* Believe that the divine presence protects you from all hurt, harm, and danger

The Black Man 

The truth of the matter is
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Whether five-two or six-seven,
Yellow fabulous or chocolate heaven
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Long and lean
With deep brown eyes
Wavy hair or dreds
With strong thick thighs
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Bald head with goatee
Cornrows or a fade
A little thick, a little thin
Oh the choices to be made
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Scholarly or not
Wall Street or hip hop
I'll sing your praises
To the mountain top
Head of the home
Provider and love
Obedient son and loving brother
There's nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

A mighty provider you've proven to be
Sacrificing your life to keep me free
Working for crumbs
When the table is bare
Praising the Lord
Leading the family in prayer
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Holding my hand
When fear emerges
Remaining faithful, suppressing your urges
Proving your strength
By turning the other cheek
Having high hopes
When the situation is bleak
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Treating me like the queen
I was born to be
Never disrespecting, dishonoring, or disgracing me
Giving me credit when it is due
Oh, black man, how I honor you

There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man!
