A Kiss from Rose| February 26th

Hey you! Are you just sitting there waiting for something to happen? Have you done your part to get things moving in your life? Are you consistent? We all know that "faith without work is dead," we also know that God moves in mysterious ways and is all-knowing. Not that God needs our help with anything that He does for us; however, doesn't it feel good to do what He has asked us to do? Things like praying, talking to Him, and reading His word?

I not only do these things when I am waiting on something to happen when something just happened, or I am knee-deep in sin; I do this every day. Why some may ask, or some may not believe it at all, nevertheless, I do it because He is my best friend, and I talk to Him every day. So I am never just sitting around waiting on things to happen. I am busy talking to God. As I am talking, I am activating things all around me. As I am talking, I am shifting the atmosphere. As I am talking, He is moving. As I am talking, He is covering. As I am talking, He is anointing. As I am talking, He is protecting. As I am talking, He is anointing. As I am talking, He is fighting. As I am talking, He is providing. As I am talking, He is healing. As I am talking, He is destroying the enemy. As I am talking, He is loving.

It is essential to talk to God. Talking to your earthly friends can't do all of these things. You see, when people are sitting around judging my sins, I am still talking, and He is still doing. When people have abandoned me, I am still talking, and He is still doing. When people lie on my name and assassinate my character, I am still talking, and He is still doing. When my account is negative, I am still talking, and He is still doing. When I am walking in love and helping others, I am still talking, and He is still doing. When I am unlovable, He still loves me.


My question is today, what are you waiting for? When will you be consistent with talking to God?

Black History/ Fact

The History of Lynching/ May 19, 1918

Walter White was sent by the NAACP to investigate lynchings in Brooks- Lowndes County, Georgia. The lynching of Mary Turner was one of the investigations.

Abusive plantation owner, Hampton Smith, was shot and killed. A week long manhunt resulted in the killing of the husband of Mary Turner, Hayes Turner.

Mary Turner denied that her husband had been involved in Smith’s killing, publicly opposed her husband’s murder, and threatened to have members of the mob arrested.

On May 19th, a mob of several hundred brought her to Folsom Bridge which separates Brooks and Lowndes counties in Georgia. The mob tied her ankles, hung her upside down from a tree, doused her in gasoline and motor oil and set her on fire.

Turner was still alive when a member of the mob split her abdomen open with a knife and her unborn child fell on the ground. The baby was was stomped and crushed as it fell to the ground. Turner’s body was riddled with hundreds of bullets.
