It Amazes Me Sometimes How A Song Brings Up Memories, Thoughts, And Ideas


 

Life's Fight

The day before I put up the post “Something To Think On” was the first time I listened to Mandisa’s song “We Bleed The Same”. The song took me back to a memory of a march in Orlando I was in with my ex-husband. It was a praise of God march. There wasn’t just Assembly Of God church that my ex and I went to at the march. There was Catholics, Baptist, Methodist, and others there. No one was quarreling but having a blessed time of walking, fellowshipping, and praising God. I remembered some people were giving out tracks too. It was a great event.

After that memory I thought of the three year old who shot in his stroller in Chicago. I rhought of others in Chicago and other places who were being killed for no other reason but pure hatred. It is the way I saw some of those crimes,  The rioters who had no respect for other people, business owners, or their things.

To this day I still wonder why “Black Lives Matter” never went to march against the senseless killing of the black future generation or their people in Chicago. Yea I thought that because our future generation has the right to live to see their potential. Innocence shouldn’t be dying for a agenda. People shouldn’t be dying because someone wants to see how it feels to kill someone or the cause of hatred. Man, I got stop stepping on my soapbox here.

Well-anyway-I came up with the idea marching for brotherhood and peace for the post of “Something To Think On” because of Mandisa’s song “We Bleed The Same”. 

Dear God, we come to You in the name of Jesus Christ. We ask, dear Lord, that You unite us like lionesses on a hunt. We ask for strength and courage of lion to fight for what is right and to fight for those who can’t. We ask for a roar of a lion that will make our enemies tremble and run. Help us to stand like lion to say “enough is enough”, “no more”, “you can’t have no more territory”, “give back what you stolen”, “ROAR”. Give us love of a lioness has for her cub to love and to help others. Dear God, we give you praise and thanks for answering our prayers. We also give a hallelujah for the things You done in the past and will do in the future. Thank You for being a loving God. In Jesus Precious Name Amen.

  1. Reblogged this on Citizen Tom and commented:
    I don’t have all the answers. I don’t blog so I can tel anyone all the answers. Therefore, if I offered up the claim I have all the answers and asked people to vote for me because I will fight for them and give them all the things they need, I would be lying. Yet politicians ask us all to vote for them because they will fight for us. Are they lying or telling us us the truth? Do any any them have all the answers? Will any of them actually fight for us?

    If you want to elect an honest man or woman, elect someone who asks you to fight along side them, someone whose only answer is a promise to try to make government do the work it is suppose to do. Someone willing to let us run our own lives and turn to our Savior, Jesus Christ, for the answers we need.

  2. I like the song works, However, I wonder if the motto message would better server this message if it was changed

    From – Life is Life, Fight for it
    To – Life is Life, Engage for it

    Perhaps I am sensitive to the word use in religion messages of using fight because I am writing about the Islam religion which is being manipulated by terrorists.

    If you check out the definitions of the words fight and engage, the message of the song in my opinion is all blood serves the same purpose, to maintain life rather than to spill blood in endless battles.

    1. For example, engage : to come together and interlock the gears engaged
    See eng

    Is not Engage with each other is the real message of Jesus Christ rather than fight with each other?

    1. I am sorry it took a while to answer your comment. I found it in the spam file. I like the word “engaging”. It is a better word to use. I will be using it more than “fight”.

      1. No apology needed. I recently found out after 3 years that there is a WordPress spam file.

        Somehow the whole world needs to eliminate the word fight in my opinion. That won’t happen but every little bit helps so the saying goes.

        Regards and goodwill blogging.
