Can the bible actually help us make better investments?
Well, in June of 2008 when I asked my husband to quit his 20 year job, cash in his retirement fund and start something new, I was acting on divine guidance, but not really the bible. At the same time, my grandmother was storing flour, rice and other staples because her religious leader preached that it was the time to do. Fast forward to September and the market crashed. I do believe in patience and waiting on the direction of the Holy Spirit. I also believe that we are the generation to finally attain the wisdom which Adam and Eve traded eternity for. There is no limit to what we can do with it.
I come from a small island of only 200K people and I believe that if Obama would have gone up against the prime-minister in the last election he would have lost. I can just imagine what people would have said.
Co yankee cas a sortir? Ki mon y kwe y ye?> Translation: Where did this Yankee come from and who does he think he is? Obama would probably have been able to scrape by with 10,000 votes; but in the US around the same time he became president with millions of supporters.
Rejection is not the end of the story, it is the beginning. If you have faith in your mission, and it is inspired by divine providence. NO WEAPONS FORMED AGAINST YOU CAN PROSPER. Find your audience, these are the people who you are intended to touch. The only recipe for success is perseverance.
After listening to the video I felt sorry for Sterling; but then I read a full report of his history on Huff Post and I realized that Sterling may have become involved with his girlfriend Stiviano, to throw off the public opinion about him. He may have thought that he was using her to clean up his image and then it backfired.
Sterling is a classic representative of those wealthy millionaires who would have given all their millions to keep America from moving forward. If anyone is concerned about the prevelance of these views in America, they simply need to remember that they lost.
Fear not: for they that be withus are morethan they that be withthem. 2 Kings 6:16
One of the greatest impediments to the anti-integration movement, is the fact that we are so integrated.
In 2011 KKK leader, Jeff Hall was shot by his own son. This 10 year old child recognized that the real enemy was not those innocent people in his neighborhood, or his school. They were not people who he may have been friends with, but the real enemy was the man who hated and intended to hurt them. Just like Stiviano, this young boy felt the need to destroy the bad guy. His methods were probably due to a lack of maturity, but the need for good to prevail against evil is written into our genetic code.
As a nation we need to find common ground to move forward. Know that our greatest allies may not look like us while our enemies may.
We need to start recognizing these brave “white” people who helped win this war and understand that it is not over.
I had an experience a long time ago which really brings the feeling of watching this exhibit home. I was out of my house for long periods of time, when a family member who initially came to visit decided never to leave. During my long absences this family member who was much older than I, became very comfortable; so comfortable that she seemed annoyed when I came home. I felt that I was a visitor in her house and because of her age and my tragic custom of respect for elders, I came home always trying to stay out of her way. Tried to lock my self in my room as much as I could, but then one day I came home and my bedroom had been redecorated.
When people BEGIN to encroach upon your space they reveal a lack of respect for you. They will not be comfortable with some of what you have, even when they have more than you do. It is as if you are not worthy to have anything.
I watched the students as they examined the 3000 year old pictures still with brown paint and the hair still braided but could not identify that these people from Africa were Africans. Many wonder what is the big deal, but what if Africans invaded London, find a way into the monarchy and begin generations later to pose as Queen Elizabeth or one of the royals from this century. There is something quite indiscreet about this. We have to learn to be concerned for our own history, because this is where the future begins to take shape.
