bright future ahead sign

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end (a future and a hope.) Then shall ye call upon me and ye shall go and pray unto me and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

-Jeremiah 29:11-13

 And call upon me in the day of trouble, i will deliver thee and thou shalt glorify me.

-Psalms 50:15

 And I will bless them that bless thee…

-Genesis 12:3


The scriptures above are the foundation of my blog and my passion. I believe that the answer to the African American dilemma past, present, and future are engrained in these verses. Through our enslavement we have been a blessing to the descendants of Abraham, but not just to Abraham’s descendants. We have been more than a blessing to this entire world. We have yet to fully experience and enjoy what we have made possible for so many others.

I believe the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob already has a plan for our deliverance and to our satisfaction. My passion is to see the manifestation of His plan in our everyday lives to our complete satisfaction.  He did it before for a group of slaves who could not deliver themselves.

Protection is the most important issue facing the African American community today.

While the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob worked on freeing them from Egyptian bondage, He miraculously protected them.  At some point during their enslavement the Egyptians started slaughtering all their newborn male children as a means of birth control.  The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob used plaques and natural disasters to bring their bondage to an end.  However, during this time He again miraculously protected them from these disasters.  He also protected them through their 40 years of wandering.  We are in need of this supernatural protection for our children, families, and seniors.  This same God promised to bless those who are a blessing to Abraham’s descendants. No one in all of history can claim the blessings of this promise more than the African American community based on the labors of our ancestral enslavement.  We are in dire need of His supernatural protection internally and externally.

My prayer to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is:

“Please give us, the African American community the supernatural protection previously given to a bunch of slaves and their posterity thousands of years ago.  You are our only hope.  Thank you for answered prayer.”
