What’s Your Spiritual Status?

Now more than ever in 2018, social media has become the main outlet for status expression of the Milleniel Mainstream Meltdown (3M) of non-stop wavering emotion that ebbs and flows at every change in the average person’s feelings. There is no longer a sincere search into one’s soul to find out what is behind the motivation for any given behavior or character-laden decision made while traveling life’s journies.

Despite it’s “title”, 3M, is not entirely exclusive to just Milleniels. It has leaked into other generations who should know that “feelings are fleeting”, just like the wind in which they rode in on. It is complete and utter foolishness to vent every single feeling had during every minute, of every day (Proverbs 29:11). That constant desire to be seen, heard and understood has become an overwhelming competition of a “look at me” attitude not only exhausting to its onlookers, but unbeknowest to the author, it exhausts their own spirit. And then they wonder why they have lost a sense of purpose, drive or meaning to life. Why, the zeal once associated with that small child captivated by sunshine, snails, blue skies and rain, no longer exists.

There is an undercurrent of sadness plaguing people. It’s rooted in the mindless mix of emotions misplaced on entertainment, self-indulgence and over-exposure to the poisons of this world system we have all grown so adept at embracing.

Deep down the hunger is real. Not for a super-sized meal, but for true consumption of the exponential quest for existence. Deep down we know our design, so intricate and intelligent, could only be explained by a Creator who is so much more intricate and intelligent than we could ever think or imagine.

The foolishness that comes with the negating of God’s existence is rooted in a primordial reasoning generated from the place of unhealthy, egocentric pride. Yes. It all just comes down to pride (Proverbs 16:18). Lucifer was anointed, the greatest, most beautifully embellished, priveleged angel in Heaven (Ezekiel 28:13-15), until he thought himself more important than the things of God. One glimpse into the mirror and (*finger snap) – he was no longer satisfied. That mirror will get you in trouble every time!

Status has to do with the condition of something. In order to find that something, oftentimes, we need to search deeper than superficial. Social media, both positively and negatively, has created an outlet to display your condition for others to see. Before posting that next status, maybe instead of looking into the mirror and admiring that physically allusive imagery that is ever changing, you might first examine the heart behind it and what motivation is currently fueling the desire to publicize it. And then maybe your true status could point you in the direction of the path leading to personal design, empiric essence and truth.

”For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” 1 Corintians 13:12


Wars and Rumors of Them 

It saddens me how much the culture has changed. This present generation, for the most part, is the “Me-Generation” or the Milleniels. That spirit of self-gratification, entitlement, disrespect, laziness and fear has permeated the land to an alarming degree. In the light of so much technology, “reality” mentality and social media we have bought into the “history” and fairytales that have been fed to us on so many different levels for so many hundreds of years. And we have allowed them to separate us without question or opposition.

There are no more basic values of respect and morality for God, authority or your fellow man. People say and do what they want, no matter the extreme, without any reservation, consideration, hesitation or at the very least for the preservation of their own soul. People blaspheme God, slander their neighbor and continue to add to the already innumerable amount of hate that we have stirred up in this country and world. Perversion, miseducation and indoctrination have led to killing, stealing and destroying. We have turned on one another as rabid, starving animals fixated on a final opportunity at prey “a man against his father, a daughter against her mother” (Matthew 10:35).

PLEASE, don’t stand on your soapbox and preach to me about injustice and personal defeat at the “hands” of others. I am a Puerto Rican-Black-woman, molested by a white man and raped by a Hispanic/Black man and yet I still find the courage and conviction to live my life in such a way as to treat every man, woman, child with respect, dignity and as an individual. I have come from one of the biggest cities in the Midwest and now live in the deep South and have experienced both the ignorance of prejudice and the beauty of mutual understanding and love from all races and walks of life. People are people are people. Stop dismissing others because you don’t have the conviction nor the gumption to escape your boundaries and self-installed “great walls” to venture out and discover something about your fellow man. Stop imposing your closed-minded interpretations of who you think everyone is without even exploring past the shackles of your own mind. 

Stop feeding in to the mind-blowing levels of contradiction, confusion and basic fear that these people (i.e., media, Hollywood, Beyoncé and dem, etc.) who could care less about you, instill in you on a daily. The popular opinion is just a myth exaggerated to control the masses and sway them to a level of self-destruction that seems uncomfortabably close. So your candidate won or didn’t win, God is still in control. As a matter of fact, He places kings and takes down kings (Psalms 75:7, Daniel 2:21, Romans 13:1), so if you have a beef, maybe you should take it up with Him. 

Wake up. There’s a great big beautiful, unexplored world out there. When we stop looking at people like races and get back to looking at people’s faces and as individuals, maybe, just maybe we can take back the only race that truly matters. The human one.
