We’re Not Done Yet

God Is in Control

By Jeffrey C. King

Welcome to 2022. We’re not done yet. There is an even greater calling for healing in our community than ever before. The issues that impact Black and Black LGBTQ+ people are compounded by a falling public health care system that is overrun by racist narcissists who insist on controlling our narrative as Black and Black LGBTQ+ people. One of the most profound realizations is that quite often these obstructionists are Black people who lack true Black consciousness and operate from a space of fear of losing control.

The issues of homophobia, homicide, homelessness, addiction, and mental illness are exacerbated by persistent intervening of bleeding liberals, narcissistic politicians, and the exclusion of Black people who really love other Black people from the planning rooms and the funding tables.

As we enter into yet another blessed year on this planet, I implore you to take better care of your mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. We know even more intimately how precious this thing called life really is. Although I believe that we are more than mere “dust in the wind.” we in and of ourselves are mere mortals that embody spirit. Our only chance of a better world exists within each and every one of us. We are being called to love more, give more, listen more, and to show up as our highest selves as often as we can.

Get involved in your local community service organizations, block clubs, spiritual centers, schools; volunteer with our local elected officials, commissions, and planning bodies. We must be vigilant in casting our ballots in every election.
We must become astute relative to the issues on the table. Our lives and people continue to be attacked by sick and angry individuals who are empty and full of venom. We are being called to pray for them and turn them over daily to a power greater than ourselves. This not only allows us to heal and cleanse ourselves, but also unleashes and activates the source that controls the universe. That one is God, may we find him now.

Our goals are:
1) Getting to know ourselves and the communities we live and love in, answering the question, “Who am I and why am I here?”
2) Developing a deeper relationship with the divine and calling for divine right action in every area of our daily affairs.
3) Cleaning house and making room for more.
4) Giving from the overflow and saving enough for ourselves.
5) Dedicating time and attention to our passions while learning to sustain our lifestyles that make us happy. There is so much more life to be lived, so much constructive work to be done, and so much more love to be shared.
In The Meantime. we are more than just here and we plan to be here for years to come. We’re not done yet. We pray that spirit and the ancestors will order our steps and actions. Our community still needs us and so we will continue as a force until future notice. We stand on the foundation that God is in control (period).
