Funkadelic Friday: If I Ever Lose My Faith In You!

cemetary angel

The mindset that man is INFALLIBLE has been PROVEN BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT TO BE A LIE!  We live in a day and time when the REALITY of the FALLIBILITY of man is extremely PREVALENT!  One can see it from the White House in Washington, DC, to the one room courthouse in “Po’dunk Junction, U.S.A.”  Normally I would not pay much attention, BUT this hits too close to home.

My son, the apple of my eye, is a young man, striving to grow up in a world that has declared open season on his race and gender.  “It’s Black Man hunting season.”  Use whatever weapon of choice to not only bring him down.  The goal is to exterminate him. Each morning before he leaves for work, I give him a big Mama Bear hug, tell him that I love him, and to NEVER LOSE HIS FAITH . . . . . in GOD.  Once upon a time, we could tell our children that they could depend on their teacher to protect them and teach them them right way but now you have teachers having sex with their student on one hand and beating them up on the other.  Once upon a time, we could tell our children that they could depend on their doctor to protect them but now you have doctors raping our children “on the low.”  Once upon a time, we could tell our children that they could depend on the police office to keep them safe but now they have to seek protection FROM the police.  There are SO MANY PEOPLE WE HAVE LOST FAITH IN.  There are SO MANY PEOPLE WITH PERSONAL AGENDAS, they don’t even bother to hide them.  BUT I KNOW ONE THING FOR SURE.  NO MATTER WHAT, I can depend on my faith.  Through ups, downs, good, and bad times, in a crowd or alone, it has been proven to me OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN that my faith is SURE.

While listening to Sting performing his song If I Ever Lose My Faith In You, all of what he says is so true.  The one thing that I disagree with is “If I ever lose my faith in you (man/woman), there’ll be nothing left for me to do.  Man is not my moral compass.  God is.  Yes, when people disappoint you, pain and disillusionment comes but the “blessed assurance” is that one bigger than you and I will NEVER let me down.

STAY ENCOURAGED . . . . NO MATTER WHAT!!!!
