The Bible says in Proverbs 18:22 (KJV) Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
For almost 5 years now, I’ve had the pleasure of being with a lovely lady named Kimberly. We met in the strangest of ways. It was October 5, 2007. We were both with friends at a lounge on the south side of Houston. She was frustrated and didn’t want to be there but her friend did. I forgot the reason I was there…I think we were celebrating something. Read more
This post, I want to talk about blessings…but not just blessings but the act of being blessed. More importantly, I have this question I want to hightlight. Why do people who you know, and I mean know well, tend to hate you the most when God is blessing you?
God has been so good to each and everyone, whether you know it or believe it. When you try hard and work for things that you genuinely want, it feels good when you God allows you to accomplish what it is you set out for. With that accomplishment, you tend to look for someone to celebrate with. You want to share that experience. Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with companionship to share life’s experiences with. I’m talking about friends in particular.
I’ve come to the conclusion that most of the time they don’t know they are hating. They’ve forgotten that God blesses everyone according to his riches and according to their level of faith. Don’t hate me…for three reasons.
1.) It’s just not cool and I have nothing but love for you
2.) It won’t bother me and is a waste of time.
3.) Think about if Jesus came back right when you were hating… 2 Corinthians 12:20.
Anyway, I said all of that to say, check out #Blessings. This is another song from the #HaveMercy mixtape coming this summer. Answer this for me…why do you think people hate on you?
I began to reflect on things that happened this week. God is so good. I was blessed to see another year of life. That makes 33 of them now. My career situation is intact and is growing and improving daily. More importantly, God has allowed me to do something that truly enjoy doing. I have this internal feeling of joy that no one can take away. What is extremely pleasing to me is that those around me are also experiencing positivity. Read more
Ok..so a few of you know I’m working on a new mixtape. I’ve decided on a title. It’s called #HaveMercy. I really want to target a younger generation with this particular project. I’ve noticed that my music tends to vibe with people who are between the ages of 25-45. I want to target some 15-25 year olds with this one. The world we live in is totally different from how it was 15 years ago when I was that age. I won’t say they have more to deal with but they have different types of things to deal with. It seems as if everything is going in reverse now. #HaveMercy on them Lord.
Boys want to be girls, wearing tight jeans and small shirts. Some walk around saggin showing they dirty drawls not knowing that’s really a sign of being gay and if they were in jail it would be an open invitation. They’re are becoming soft and weak minded and lack respect for themselves and other people. When I came up, there was certain things you didn’t do or say in front of older people. Others have no clue what work is and providing for yourself and family. They would rather steal, beg, borrow, bum or take it rather than make it. #HaveMercy on them Lord.
Girls are having another set of issues. Some want to be men. They feel they can accomplish it by shaving their hair, dressing like boys and changing their name. Others think having sex is the way to go. They end up lost looking for love not knowing what it is intended to be and worse they become pregnant and have STD’s. They lack attention so they try and get it by taking half naked pictures in bathroom mirrors with camera phones. By the way, duck lips aren’t cute and neither is the dirty room that is in the background. #HaveMercy on them Lord.
Now, I know these issues have existed long before me. I also know that the bigger issue is a lack of responsibility, caring, discipline, focus, prayer and time spent from the parents of these kids. That’s another topic, another post, another song. We’ll get to that later.
My above thoughts inspired the song “Young Ones”. I used Nicki Minaj – Moment 4 Lift beat. This will go on the #HaveMercy mixtape. Listen and comment please. Thanks
I copied this short story from my friend Facebook page. I thought it was deep and interesting enough to share. I’m not sure what the title is so I’m calling it, Married Guy Speaking.
When I got home that night… my wife was serving dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. Read more
