I am not sure if you are going to get this or not. Sometimes I don’t get it. I hope that you will at least give it the old college try.  I know I need to get a few things out. Have you ever felt like that? Since this is my blog, I believe that sometimes I have the right to write exactly how I feel. With that being said I would like to welcome you to SOMETIMES




Do you feel good all the time? Is life just one great day after another? Is there a smile on your face at all times? It is not that way for me. Sometimes things are good and sometimes they are not. Sometimes I feel like this and sometimes I feel like that. I wish I could be happy all the time. Sometimes I wish this. Sometimes I’m wishing for that. I wish life was as easy as it was when I had no bills to pay. Sometimes I wonder why me? 

Yesterday is now gone. Tomorrow may never come. My future could be over any time now. Last year I hoped for this year. Now I hope for one more. Will I make it? Sometimes I just know that I will. Then I think about how easy it is to die in this world we call home.  

“I say what I mean and I mean what I say”. Get like that. Stop talking in circles. Say it how it is. Get to the root of the issues. And if you are one of those people that hear something and run with it without looking into it is foolishness.  

Did you know what FOX NEWS said about its host in court? They love to run off at the mouth about things they should just leave alone. They got a lot of talk and very few facts. It is crazy how they cannot stand on anything. They are treating Wrong worse than the red headed step child. I wonder where that saying came from? Anyway, like me get to the point.  

The lawyers that represent FOX said in court that “if anybody believes anything Tucker Carlson says they are crazy”. He said that everybody knows he is crazy. Funny how Mr. Carlson never brought that up on his show. The people he works for thinks he is crazy, that should tell you all you need to know about the whole channel. 

Sometimes my thoughts run together. Since I am getting a little older some of those thoughts only cross at cross walks. I have also found out that some of these thoughts don’t even belong to me. You see I picked them up from a book.  

I would rather hate those that are trying to kill me. I would rather hate those that have no love for me. I would rather not have to worry about what they doing over there. Sometimes I wish I could buy white sheets for my bed. Scratch that. Not only are white sheets not allowed in my house that goes for white towels and face clothes too. That’s real life over here. 

Instead, I try to love all people. Even when I know it will not be a two-way street. I get mad. I get upset. I also get scared. I am not perfect. Let me say that one more time. I am not perfect. I believe in “progression not perfection”. Add that to the tablet of your heart. 

That book that I love so much says “he that finds a wife has found a good thing”. I don’t know how you feel about that but, I found a good thing. A friend of mine said she should be a saint just for putting up with me. All I can say to that is at least I found a good thing. 

If God is love, why do we hate so much? If God is fair, why can’t we be? If God is first in our life, why can no one can tell? If you are walking the path God has given you, then why are your shoes so clean? Why do you have the same friends you had as a sinner? I’m not saying leave them, because when they see your growth, they will leave you. But you guys still hang out? Looks like sometimes applies to more than just me. 

God said in all your getting, get understanding, and we only see things how we think they should be. Wonder if it is a lie? Sometimes I wonder how we can say we follow God when we don’t care about others?  If God can hear me, why can’t you? Are you ignoring the cries from the people of God? 

Why is this hurting me so much? Is it the love or the hate? Is it ordained or is this just fate? Sometimes they mingle together. Sometimes it is hard to see where I stand. Sometimes I cannot even stand. Sometimes I run from a seated position. Sometimes I can see my thoughts. Sometimes my thoughts can see me. 

Sometimes I think about some crazy things. Sometimes those things invade my mind so that I get off track. Sometimes I get so lost that I cannot keep my eye on the ball. Where is the ball? Who does it really belong to? I don’t think it’s mine the way it is playing me. One day at the courts this dude got mad and took his ball and left. Those boys went to get that ball and I never saw that dude again, until school started. I was not with them, but I have to say I played when they got back. Sometimes I think about that day. 

Are you paying attention? Is my name attention? No, I did not ask you for money. Wait did you want to give me some? All I’m saying is if you send it, I will put it to good use. Yes, I do have cash App. Do you need me to send you my account name. Better be safe then to be sorry. (Dream put that info here when you proof read this, please. [$NLkingsservant]) As you know that was not for you, but since you saw it, I call my wife DREAM. 

Do you know what it feels like to have goals that you will never be able to achieve? Sometimes I feel like my entire life was a big waste of time. Sometimes I can’t wait to die. There was a time that I wanted to take my own life. Sometimes I see those days returning in my mind. I was so lonely then. Like I was here all alone. 

They could not see what I was saying. They could not hear the pain in my words. They overlooked why my head was low. They knew I was not ok, but they did not even try to help. They wanted me to see it the way they did, but my eyes have always been different. 

The day that you find out after years of friendship there was never a real friendship. I thought we were so close. Thought that you really cared about me and the things that I had to encounter. Come to find out it was all a lie. Sometimes I wonder how you could do me like that. You saw with your eyes how people were treating me then you did even worse than they had done. Sometimes I want to call you and just ask why. 

I need to be free. I want to be free. Sometimes I wonder what freedom feels like? What does it look like? Where can I find it? Sometimes life is just too much. Sometimes I really just need a break. So much so fast that sometimes all I can see are the stars, as they rotate around my head. Do you understand any of this? 

Sometimes I am thankful for the traps that I have been able to pass. But other times I hate them and all they stand for. Traps set up for me to fail. How could I be a fan to that? Sometimes I wonder why the evil one likes me so much. Do you have these problems, or is it just me?  

Sometimes I wonder God why me? You could have made me anything and placed me anywhere. Another black child living in South and North Carolina. Sometimes I wonder, God did you set me up to fail? Not only did you make me black but dark on top of that. Made me so dark that black peopled call me black. Do you know how bad that feels? They hate me for not being white and the blacks hate me for being so dark. Sometimes kids can be so mean.  

Sometimes things just don’t feel right. Like the other day when this guy asked me am I mad at God for getting a young girl pregnant? No, I am not mad about that. Is that not the age most people got married back then? Sometimes people say crazy things. Want to pick my brain because you thought you had me. It is not like they had sex. 

Sometimes we give evil people too much of our time. People that like to spin things to make others look bad. One of those things is this stupid thing called “black on black crime”. Took a look and see how that came about. It is a very interesting little story. And while you are in the mood to learn let me hit you with one more. Look up white on white crime. Then you too will see why it is a stupid talking point. Both searches will tell you the numbers are too close to even say one is worse than the other. Sometimes we need to listen to what is not being said. 

 These days we live like we don’t care about anything. That is not even the bad part. We are willing to teach our kids to be even more crazy than we were. We are teaching our youth to do whatever feels good and we know that is not how things are done. Free-range parenting in a jungle is a crazy idea. 

Sometimes I wonder why there are so many stores in the black neighborhoods? And why are they always so beat up looking? Have you ever thought about that? Who thought that was a good idea? You can’t find one ABC store in the middle of the “good” side of town. But on this side of the tracks, they are everywhere. Are you telling me that only poor people drink?  

Sometimes I want to be more like you. Are you young, white, and rich then yes you. Shame, no not here. There was a time that being my color was against the law. Just that thought hurts. I think I would love to wake up one day and that not be true.  

Some of this pain is my fault. I think about things. Thinking will get you sometimes. The thing is I would rather hurt from the truth than to live in a wonderland. Sometimes I just want to know more that way things will be easier to fix. Sometimes I wonder why more people don’t care about others.  

This is not about hate, but about the truth of things that I have seen, heard, and read about. Things that are part of my life. Things that I cannot get away from. Sometimes it is hard to get out of my own head. Sometimes it is the people around me that make me think such things. Like when he said we all have the same problems in life.  

Yes, we do but things are different when one of those problems is the color of your skin. How do I get around that? You have all the answers? When I was young, we played the race game with the news. When they said a man did such and such, we knew he was white. How did we know? Because if it was a black man, they would spit that out first.  

Why was that allowed? I am so glad that is not still happening. Sometimes I am just so mad that it is still allowed. Still, we have not learned. Still, we allow the hate to be our voice. How does this jive with all this Christianity we say we live? It goes past that. You can have two kids the same age and same crime but different coverage. The white boy will still be a child or teenager. And on the other hand, the black boy the same age is called a black man. 

Don’t stop me when you get upset. Stop me when I lie. Sometimes I just don’t understand what we are going to do with ourselves. Did you know that Africa was in the Bible? Did you know that most of those people in the Old Testament were colored people? Tell me this, are you going to choose Hell when you find out that Jesus is not a blond-haired surfer boy? 

Please tell me that race no longer matters. Tell me that all people have the same choices in life. Please tell me that you can’t see color. I hate when people say that. They know it’s a lie from the last time they said it. That’s why they say it in the first place. Your clothes match, you not running red lights, and most of all you act different when we are around. 

A friend of mine told me that the Democrats were trying to ruin this country. I asked why did he feel that way. He told me look at them. So, I did. Still wondering what the problem was I asked again. He told me that all people are treated the same in this country and they are trying to divide us. I am not even going to with that one. I hope you don’t think like this. 

Sometimes I wonder. Sometimes, I think. Sometimes I wonder while I am thinking. Sometimes I think I made it. Might not seem much to you, but the statistics say I should be dead by now. Think about that for a second, I know I do. 

Show of hands, who wants to go back to the bag phones? Who wants to go back to horse and buggy? Then why is it such a problem when people want to make this country better. Nobody thinks it is the worst place to be, but that doesn’t make it a fair place. What is so wrong with treating all people the same? 

Sometimes I want “WE THE PEOPLE” to include all the people. 

Philippians Chapter 3: Part 1

I am so happy that you have stopped by on this wonderful day of our LORD. I hope that you will receive some points to live by in this post. I must say to you now that this one may get a little long. It is my plan to break down the third chapter of Philippians. 

You may wonder why I would waste your time like that. The answer is simple. It will not be a waste of time. So many of us wear our faith but we do not live it. That is one of the main things we are to receive from the Gospel. It was not just to have someone to count on but give us instructions on how we can live a life that represents the one that we indeed count on.  

Paul wrote this while he was in prison. One more time. Paul wrote this letter when he was in prison. While he should have been writing about the bad that was happening to him at this time, he wrote to uplift and to instruct believers how to live their lives. He knew that his role was much more than being locked up. He knew that he was a teacher and that he had to teach. Today we are going to focus on that. 




Philippians 3 

New King James Version 

 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe. 

He is aware that some of his points are the same. He knows that some of it may sound like he is saying the same thing over and over. His reason is that he wanted them to get exactly what he was saying. He wanted them to read it so that they would be able to live it, just as we are supposed to be doing. He states that it is safe and not tedious. Meaning these are good things to live by. I feel like if it was good enough for Paul to write it then I should want to follow it. I want to be safe. 

2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!  

3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,  

Beware of those that say you have to be a certain race to go to Heaven. Beware of those that say you have to look like this or look like that to worship God. Beware of those that have made up their own list of who can believe in Jesus the Christ. 

It is God that we must please, not men. We have begun to hold men up higher than Christ. We have come to a place where if the flesh is rich, we bow down. We allow flesh to lie to us and stand behind them and say it is how we are to live. It is flesh that wants us in hell so why are we following it like it is Holy? 

4 though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so:  

5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; 

 6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. 

Oh, you have a great reason to have confidence in your flesh. It seems to me if Paul is not going to do such a thing, then you should not either. In his former job he had plenty of status. No matter where you came from, live, or titles that you may hold, the flesh is not the answer. It cannot be the thing we honor or hold in esteem, flesh is just flesh.  

I am not saying not to have goals, but that you should not allow those goals to say who you are. Paul had statutes that he could fall back on if he wanted. Paul could have gone back to his old life where he put people in prison instead of him being in there. Over all that, he could have done, so let’s see what he did do. 

7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.  

I read in a book once that if you have not lost for Christ then you do not have Christ. Have you lost anything for what you believe in? I surely have. Lost friends, lost some enemies, lost a lot of family, which is crazy since my family grew up in church, I even lost my mind on more than one occasion. I lost some of that pride that was tearing me down. I lost myself and became NL, and that was a good move if you ask me. But still there are people that believe that I do not have the right to the God that they serve. 

When the created become more precious than the Creator you know we have a serious problem. I love, honor and respect my Pastor, but if he tells me things that contradict the Bible, we have problems. I can say that with all confidence because he taught me to always check the speaker with the word. 

Was it worth it? Yes, it was. I would rather worship God in spirit than to be rich and respected by the flesh. It is a hard lesson to learn, harder to live, and maybe even hardest to teach.  

8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ  

9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;  

10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,  

11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. 

No matter the loss, to have Christ is to have it all. He goes as far as to say that excellence is the knowledge of Christ. Not even for Christ but for the knowledge. That is a very strong statement. To make a confession like that has to impact you in some way. He gave up the good life to have a Christ life. Should we not also do the same? Should we continue to follow flesh or shall we live in the Spirit of the name in which we claim.  

What is better, to serve God or to serve the flesh? You have to decide that for yourself, but when you make up your mind, go all in.  

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.  

Paul is saying that the only thing that matters to him is how he will live the rest of his life. He has not given up on the lifestyle he preaches. Instead, he decided to double down on living a life that honors the God that he believes in. The man that wrote most of the New Testament is saying that the only thing that really matters is how we live. Not where we live, not who we live with, but how we live where we are right now.  

13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  

Please read that verse one more time, this time knowing he said this while in prison and looking like he would never get out. 

14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 

Yes, he is looking for approval. Yes, he is looking for signs that he is doing right. Yes, he is looking for a prize for the life he lives.  He is looking to the Heavens and not to the people around him. He wants to please God no matter what he has to face. ARE WE THERE YET? I can only speak for me, on this one, I’m not. 

15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.  

It is a disgrace to see so many follow these preachers who are themselves not yet mature in the word of God. How can we allow them to be the last word when we have the word to make sure they are in agreement with the things we say we believe in.  

All mature people of the WORD are all supposed to agree with the WORD. And if this is not the case then God will reveal it to you. The thing is if you have no clue what’s in the word how do you know if what you are hearing is correct? God doesn’t have to go through extreme lengths to reveal things to us. He gave us his word. So, the next sermon you hear, please check it in the bible and see if your word is coming from a dog or a dove. 

16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind. 

It is verses like this that tell us that all hate groups that call themselves Christians are liars. Not one of them, not some of them, but all of them are wrong. No matter where they believe they stand, it is not rooted in the word. If we are to have the same rules, then that thing we say that “Your walk is not my path”, is also lie out of hell. No, we will not all look the same, but we should have so much in common that we act the same, or at least it should look like it. 

Now here is the kicker. Just in case you did not understand the same rules, he pushed it to the limit here. He said the same mind. That means that ALL that called this book the word of God should think just like those before us. Instead, we have allowed people to break up what God has put together. 

17 Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern.  

Here Paul is saying follow me as I follow Christ. He knows that we need to see it in order to act it out.  

18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:  

19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.  

There are a lot of followers that say they are following Christ, but with tears in my eyes I tell you they are deceivers of the people. They are haters of love and we know that God is love. They call for war while Jesus is calling for peace. They are not fit to call themselves followers of Christ, but still, we follow them anyway.  

20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,  

21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. 

If in fact the goal is Heaven then should we not act like that is where we expect to go. We have all of this help to deal with the issues of life, instead we run to the wisdom of men. That is not what we are called to do. We are called to believe in the things that we say we believe in. 

I thank you for your time and your support. I hope that you are going to be around for a while. This year is going to be amazing. That is my hope, not my promise. We are going to open more doors and seek the heart of God. We are going to seek the knowledge of God and forsake the doctrine of men. We are going to stand for what is Biblically correct.

Searching for Family

Searching for family. Sounds like a lonely plea or maybe a lonely person. Family life is hard I am not sure how so many do it. What I do know is I have a huge family, but only a few of them I can count on. Most of them would rather talk about me than to talk to me. I really thought that would change as I grew older.  

Come to find out things changed alright. Some got worse and a few got better. I do not want it to look like they are wrong and I am right. I am well aware of the awful things I have been a part of. And yes, some of that spilled into my family life. Just thinking about family stirs up so much in me. The main thing has always been acceptance. I knew I was not the best but I still wanted some love. I knew my actions were sometimes out of line, but wonder where I learned that at? Life is, so let’s keep on moving. 

I would like to thank you for spending some time with me. I do realize that reading is a past time for most. Glad you are here, thank you very much. I would also love it if you will continue to stop by. I write on and about many things and I am sure you will find something to hang onto. My name is NL Ross, that’s two letters N, L, I like to keep it simple. 


When it popped in my head, I was like nah I can’t make this one work. It seemed like God was getting me ready to take on another wall. If strive to live this life then you know about those walls. God will place you in front of walls that hit back and in some cases they will hit first. You come out looking like you were in the romper room and it was just church.  

We all look for family. Some of went to gangs, clubs, hate groups, and church groups. We look while we are young and as we continue to grow. We want to be around people that think like we do. People that make us feel good about who we are. Even if we do not have a clue who we are. We have the need for others in our life and we all know it has hard to trust people you don’t know.  

For a long time, it made me mad that Jesus did not make a way to see his mom and brother. He knew they were far from home and that he had other stuff going. I am sure he knew that she was in pain. I can’t count the fights I been in over my mom. I been kicked out of school many times defending my mom’s honor. At least that is what I set out to do. It takes some years too see the fool you made out of yourself for no good reason. Am I alone on this?  

For some reason Jesus decided to use this as a teaching moment. Maybe even teaching moments, there are many jewels in these few verses. As we know Jesus respected his mother. I mean he did perform His first miracle at her insistence. We also know that the Law required that they honor parents. There is no way I could believe that God would want us to act in this same manner. I mean Jesus was our example, but this can’t be part of what He wants from us. 


Mark 3:31-35 

Amplified Bible 

31 Then His mother and His brothers arrived, and standing outside they sent word to Him and called for Him.  

32 A crowd was sitting around Him, and they said to Him, “Look! Your mother and Your brothers are outside asking for You.”  

33 And He replied, “Who are My mother and My brothers?”  

34 Looking at those who were sitting in a circle around Him, He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers!  

35 For whoever does the will of God [by believing in Me, and following Me], he is My brother and sister and mother.” 

Just tell me do you think she used his whole government? I know my mom would wait till my friends were around to use mine. I can see her now, looking at me eye to eye, and screaming like I was down the street. My whole name, like she did know we lived in the hood. Breaking all kinds of hood codes. She just wanted them to know she was the boss of me. Little did she know I was only afraid of her when she was around. By the time she found out my trick I was already fighting the results of bad decisions.  

Since the other guy’s moms were probably not there, they tried to poke a little fun. Wanted to hit Him where it counts. Kinda like what my friends use to do. Hey, your momma wants you. Watch how you say momma when you talking about my mom’s bro. Sorry about that, it was only a flashback. Let us continue. 

Ok so far, we got Jesus and his disciples, we have a crowd around Him, and His mother and brothers are asking to speak with him from the outside. My mom had none of that restraint. If she wanted me, that was it, the world no longer mattered. There is only so much you can put on the person that feeds you. I can tell you one thing this story would not have been a story if my mom was concerned.  

Real life, if that was me, I would still be drinking my meals. Who is my mother? That hurts thinking about what my mom would do. I don’t really know but I bet she would not have still been outside when I said it. 

He did not stop there but instead added his own brothers to the mix. I’m not saying Jesus is crazy or anything so I will stick with the teaching part of this. I might even need to call my brothers this week, just to make sure we still good. Fun and games aside think about this. What Jesus said would get most of us hurt in some way. I mean maybe you had a mom that did not beat you. That is cool, but I think if you would have done this my mom would have showed up. 

We often have a scale that we live by. Some say God, Family, City, State, and Country. For some it is a much shorter list. And still with some it could be longer or shorter. It seems like most people are willing to go the extra mile for “family”. That is our understanding or misunderstanding of the word, but is it the same for God?  

This leads me to believe that in the sight of our Father “family” is measured in a much different manner. Jesus looked at the men that followed him and called them his mother and brother. I know it sounds like Jesus may have been “WOKE” as they say. I mean He did call men women.  

“For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.” 

Does that change any of your views? Does it make you question why Jesus would say something like that? Do we think that is what He really meant? Was it a trick? One thing is for sure for me, if it is how He thought, then it is supposed to be the way that I think. 

In a world where groups are everything, we find out they are not what they seem. Yes, some of them could be helpful. Some could even have the correct intent. But if they want you to stray from what you believe you need to watch out. Acceptance is hard to come by and much more easily lost. Even in some cases the acceptance is just a set up. That could happen with or without similar DNA. 

I want my family to be the same family that Jesus had. How about you? Are you willing to open your heart to the family that counts. I am not saying family doesn’t count, but this family is much bigger and built on things that last the test of time. I pray that you can add me to your family and I could add you. ONE BODY, MANY MEMBERS, I believe in that. Do you?

Church Clothes or a Lifestyle?

Do you put your church on, or is it the life that you live? Is it when you break out that hat, you know the one you still keep in the box? Maybe you have church shoes and socks. Is it that one dress you keep in the back of the closet? Are you still keeping it in the cleaners’ bag, so it doesn’t smell like smoke?  

I use to have a church belt. My mom would not even let me keep it in my room. You better believe that on Sunday morning that belt would be on top of my freshly ironed church clothes. Even as a teenager she would iron my church clothes. She knew my mind was not in it, but she made sure that I looked the part.  

Are we still doing that or have we learned that this is a lifestyle thing and not a church thing. Is it time we grow up in the Word and stop faking it for the world? Do we really believe that this halfhearted effort is ok with God? It is like we are trying to fool the people around us and God. Can a mere person fool, or trick God? Even after reading this, some of us are going to set out to do just that.  

There is a reason the Bible is filled with words like Walk, Renewing, Love, Truth, and Example. God is teaching us how to live day to day, not just on Sunday. God commands that we live His word, not just read it or talk about it. God wants us to be the church not just to put it on. I have a good one for you on this day. Are you ready for change?  




Take a look at this verse. It is one that a lot of people like to overlook. 

Philippians 4:8 

21st Century King James Version 

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things. 

For some reason this does not sound like an outfit. It does not sound like something to put on and take off. If I read that correctly, this is supposed to be how I live my life on a day-to-day basis. No matter how I feel about it, this is what I am to do, what we all that say we believe should be doing. That is a big problem with us humans, we want all things on our terms. Not so much concerning how God instructs us to live. 

Instead, we are not even trying to do what is right. We follow hate like it has a white robe. We stand on things that God does not stand on. We tell lies on and about the ONE we say we serve. How is that? Why is that?  










If you give this teaching a place in your heart, it will lead you away from some of the tangles in life. It has the power to make the blind have sight and those with an ear to listen to hear. It will be light to your path. It will become your path. It will change your state of mind, renewing it to be more like Christ. This teaching will change your life from this point on. That is if you are willing to open up to it. 

Yes, I know it may be a lot to take on at once. So, my advice to you is pick a word and start there. No need to overdo it and stop your own progress.  

Maybe even marking this verse for daily reading. I hear that reading things over and over is a great way to keep it in mind until it becomes second nature.  

Or you could bring this up with the people you talk to the most. It is better to talk about how to become better people rather than just downing others for their faults.  

It is my hope that you are able to add this teaching to your heart. Why heart? Because that is where our true selves reside. It is there that we are to live the life that we claim. Putting on church is easy. Being the Church, now that takes work. Are you willing? 

This is a lifestyle. Not an outfit to put on. Not a smile we put on. Not that belt my mom kept in her room. It is who we are inside and out.  

I am sure that you have something to add on this one. You can reach me at 

Many are Called

In middle school I once tried out for the basketball team. To the surprise of everyone I was actually picked for the team. All I had was some speed, a little heart, and a hook shot. I bring this up because of two things I learned in this section of my life. 

  1. Knowing how to play basketball does not make you a basketball player. 
  1. Everyone wants to be on the team. 

When we walked in the gym that day there were so many people in there. Guys that I did not think even had a thought about sports were in there. Big boys, little boys, smart boys, those boys, and even some of them boys were in there. And they all wanted the same thing. They wanted to be on the team.  

The gym was packed, and I was scared. At the time I lived in Plantation Apts. and I did not want to let the guys down, even though they knew I was nowhere near the level of playing that they were at. Like I said, I did end up making the team, and I never tried out for basketball again. I thought making the team was the hardest, I was not cut out for that at all. I knew it and so did everyone around me. 

Basketball did call my name, but it did not call me one of the chosen ones. It wanted me to play, but it was not making me a star. It was a game to me not a love. 

I believe that in some way we all have learned this lesson. If you have not, you must be good at everything. That’s surely not me. I do consider myself a decent writer. Let me know what you think in the comments. 




Matthew 22:14 

21st Century King James Version 

 For many are called, but few are chosen. 

I am of the stern belief that God wants everyone in the world to come to Him. I believe that all those that come have a job to do. I believe that God has given us things to do in His name and honor. I do not believe that God is making millions of Jeremiahs. 

There are many things in the Bible that can and do apply to our lives in this day and time. I believe that there many verses that could be interchanged with of name in the Bible. I do not believe the following verse are those. I believe that this message was for one man and not all men. 

Jeremiah 1:4-10 

21st Century King James Version 

Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” 

Then said I, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a child.” 

But the Lord said unto me, “Say not, ‘I am a child,’ for thou shalt go to all whom I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. 

Be not afraid of their faces, for I am with thee to deliver thee,” saith the Lord. 

Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, “Behold, I have put My words in thy mouth. 

10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms to root out and to pull down, and to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.” 

Jeremiah was called before he became. He was set apart for a purpose. A purpose that most of us would have never heard in the first place. Jeremiah did not sign his name for this job. Jeremiah did not ask God to pick him. Jeremiah was appointed before his first breath. Now tell me, do you really think that applies to every person in the world? 

I believe that I have been called by God to do things that will help build the Kingdom of God. But I do not think that I am Jeremiah. I know that God is very smart so let me ask you, do you think you have the task of Jeremiah? Do you think the kids you gave birth to have this calling? What about your sister or brother do they have it? Do you think you have ever met a person in your life that had a task such as this? I think not. 

We are being made fun of because of how our leaders handle things like this. They are teaching us that the Bible is to be applied to everyone. As if we can pick a story and live it out. Why are we even falling for things like that? 

If you know anything about the Bible you know that it would be almost impossible to handle the things the men of the Bible had to do. We cannot even stop lying to each other. How can we obtain a calling of this magnitude when we cannot even walk in truth? We go to church to be taught about hating those around us and we still believe that we all could be the next Jeremiah. 

I know this is going to make some people upset. I know some don’t want to hear what I have to say. I just hope that in all of your getting that you will get some understanding. To lie is a sin. No matter what you lie about it is a sin. If you speak harshly about other that is a sin. Think about that for a moment. And if by chance you disagree, I can be reached at

We cannot live by the doctrine of Holiness if we lie. Simple as that. How can we praise God and honor people being mistreated? How can we be the example when we think we all are Jeremiah? And still our leaders are teaching us that all babies are equal to Jeremiah. That is a lie, straight out lie for no reason, just a lie. That stance has no defense in the Bible. There is nothing telling us that God thinks of us all as He did with Jeremiah. 

The Lord burned his lips with coal. So, when was the last time you saw that happen? God put His words into the mouth of Jeremiah. We will not even take the time to read the word. Instead, we allow people to lie to us and we follow. They say all babies are a gift from God, then they say let’s go to war. Will you make that make sense for me please? 

Put him above Nations. Above Kingdoms. That’s all of us? How? Most of us cannot even rule over our homes and we think everyone is Jeremiah? We cannot agree on loving those around us but we are called like Jeremiah. 

Jeremiah was made for the job he was called to do. God does not need us to be Jeremiah. God has the wisdom to pick who He wants for what He wants. It is our job to be willing and to obey what is set in front of us. It is our job not to lie, not to encourage lies, and not to aid in lying. 

If the Bible is the truth, why must we lie on it? 

Thank you for your time and your support.  

I Say This to Your Shame

So many people tell me that they do not need God. They are already good people. Some tell me that God is not real. And some tell me that they know there is a God but they cannot believe anything in the Bible. 

For things like this, my answer is usually something like, I needed God to save me from myself. In my own mind I knew that the way I was looking at things could not be right. I could see the destruction that my lifestyle was causing the people around me. I knew that I needed a power that is greater than me. 

Maybe you are one of those good people that don’t need any help doing right. Those created without spot or blemish. Maybe you are the person with the Holy Spirit on both shoulders. Maybe you learned a long time ago how to act and you don’t need anybody’s help. If this is you, please stop reading now. If that person is you, this blog post is not the one for you.  

If you are a real person that may need help once in a while, this is for you. If you are like me and need something to follow, then this is also for you. If there is a chance you may want to do the right thing, please continue to read. 


I hope that you have your thinking cap on today. You see this is the kind of thing that gets me all worked up. I want to be the person God wants me to be. I know I am not there, and there is a good chance I may never get there, but I sure am going to keep trying and including you in this journey. 




I use to tell my mom “It’s not me, mom its them”. She would tell me that what people do around you, you are also doing. My mom did not speak in scripture to me, but I sure can find things that she said too me in the scripture. 

1 Corinthians 15:33-34 

21st Century King James Version 

33 Be not deceived: “Evil associations corrupt good manners.” 

34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. 

I know that a lot of people have trouble with the King James Version, but I felt I needed it in here. We are going to use the Amp version because the English is much plainer. Let us dive in. 

1 Corinthians 15:33-34 

Amplified Bible 

33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”  

34 Be sober-minded [be sensible, wake up from your spiritual stupor] as you ought, and stop sinning; for some [of you] have no knowledge of God [you are disgracefully ignorant of Him, and ignore His truths]. I say this to your shame. 

We often think that we are in control. We believe that we stand on what we stand on. The things that we don’t see is how people around us could change our minds on things we have believed in all of our lives. 

Let’s look at it this way. Think of someone close to you getting involved with someone else. You can see those people change right before your eyes, but if you mention it, it will not be received well. You can see how their dress changes, the things that they say changes, and most of all the persons world view begins to change.  

If it is a good person, we are ok with the influence they are receiving, but if the shoe is on the other foot, chances are we will no longer be friends. I cannot count the friends I have lost because they got involved with someone that did not like me. Good looking on their part by the way. They would stop calling and stop coming by. I knew what it was and took it in stride. That is until I started to see the damage that I had caused others. 

Do not be deceived if you hang out with people that do not share your morals, chances are that soon you will not have them either. Think about the crazy things you did in your life. Did your friends have any input? 

If you hang out with people that do not respect all people, soon you will not respect them. If you hang out with people that preach hate, soon you will preach hate. If you hang out with people that speak truth, soon you too will speak truth. 


Be sober-minded and be sensible. It seems to me like we are asked to think in a logical manner. For instance, if you have the right, I should also have it. If it would hurt you, then chances are it would also hurt me. It is impossible to be a good person and hate other people. And that should be true for all, but we know it is not reality. It should be with us that claim to be in the Body of Christ. 

Stop sinning does not sound like a plea. We cannot say we are followers and not follow the word. If in fact we believe the God of the Bible then we should strive to live the life He has prescribed. 

I have found out that there are many that love God and hate the Bible. They love what God stands for as long as you don’t open the book. I tell you that if you believe in the God of the Bible, we have to use our Bile to see how God wants us to live. If in fact your god is not in the Bible, then we are not talking about the same God. 

THEY KEEP SAYING THIS IS A CHRISTIAN NATION, but this is not so according to the Bible. The Bible tells us what to do in order to be a Christian, how to live, and how to speak in order to be a Christian. If you, them or myself is not doing it, then we are not Christian. 

That is like me saying this blog has the most views, and when you go look, I average about 20 views a month. Do you think I am any good at this? If you do, please send the link to someone that you know. 

That’s like being the mascot for a team and you forgot the costume. Is anyone going to react the same with you down there in jeans and a t-shirt? I think not. The moral of both stories is, no matter who or what you say you are, there have to be some kind of guidelines for you to follow. If it is being a Christian, all of the guidelines are located in the Bible. 

The some that have no knowledge of God are the ones that do not have a clue what is in the bible. The some that have no knowledge of God are the ones following for the sake of following. The some that have no knowledge of God are the ones saying this is a Christian Nation. I suggest that we learn what we say, we honor. 

I also say this to your shame. If you say that is what you are, then be that. If you say that you believe, then you should learn what it is that you believe. It takes more than being a good person. 

Keep an eye on things like this and look at what you are able to see in your own life. Look and see how you have changed others and how they have changed you. Did they make you a better person, or did they add hate to your menu? Did they open your mind to new things or bring you down to the ways of old?  

I hope that you were able to see what I was trying to do in this post. I do my best to give you truth in a way that is easy to see. I do not speak my views, but I do speak the views of the Bible. That is where I stand. Will you stand with me? 

Thank you for your time today. May your day be better than the one you had yesterday. 


All that I am saying is watch what you call me. You cannot just call me anything you want. That is not allowed here.  

Don’t call me weak, I already know I am. Last week I left work because I was having a crying fit.  

Don’t call me crazy, I know that too. When I look at the glass, I do not see half full. I do not see half empty. I do see that if we only have one glass then we have a problem. 

Don’t call me stupid. I just don’t like being called that. Plus, I read books, I still study the Bible, and I am able to write in a way that you can see what I am saying.  


Did you know that in the Bible we are called sheep? How does that sit with you? It was hard for me to grasp that. It even hurt a little bit. I mean, I do not know any sheep, never had a sheep, I do believe I may have eaten some sheep. That did not help my case at all. Don’t worry I have more. What do you mean when? Scroll down, I am sure there is more to read. 




This one has me so worked up I think I should have done this on the podcast. Wait, you did not know about the podcast? We just got started but please check it out. The Kings Servant Blog Podcast, Buzzsprout and Spotify, we are out there, so please, give us a follow, share, and comment. Yes, that was a plug. No, I am not ashamed that I did it. Now, are you ready? 

I was shocked to find out there is a letter addressed to sheep in the Old Testament. Most of the world has heard it, but did they know it was to sheep? 

I hope that you are saying there is no way I am a sheep. Then I would say if you love God, you are a sheep. Be a sheep they are going places the jack ass will not be allowed.  

We have used this verse to show how much God is on our side, but we may have messed up one of the biggest points. In looking so close to what God is willing to do for us we forget who the us really is. The us in this love letter of sorts, are sheep. 

Psalm 23 

King James Version 

 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 

Sheep have to have a shepherd in order to live. Sheep are now lions, bears, and tigers. Sheep are needy, and need number one is protection. These sheep need not want because they do have a Shepherd. 

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 

Life is much easier when you have someone willing to show you the ropes. He did not ask if I wanted to lie down, he maketh me. He knows that I am thrown off by raging water. He knows where to lead me. Come over here He says, still waters. 

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 

They said you are an out-of-control animal. I thought I was a bear. In fact, I knew that was what I was. Then He restored my soul. Put me in my place. With the rest of the flock. (Insert your name here) _______, you have been misled, but I will put you on the right path. I will show you how to live. I will show you how to give Me all the glory of your life, my name depends on it. 

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 

It all looks like death when you are a sheep. Anything could hurt or kill you. Looks can be deceiving. Looks could make us run, but we have a Shepherd. Not just somewhere, but right here right now. The rod is for us, the staff is for our protection. Think about that for a moment. 

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 

Who do you think is an enemy to sheep? Everything. Everybody. But you want me to eat, ok then we eat. Annoinest my head and my cup runneth over. Doesn’t seem like our Shepherd likes that glass thing either. 

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 

The only way verse five and six have any meaning to us is when we are able to see God is not looking for bears, lions, or any of that. Our Shepherd is in the sheep business. 


I know who I am. I know why I am. I know because of who I am. Point blank, I am a sheep and I follow I AM.  

I know this had to get some thoughts flowing. Share. Come back. I am a sheep. I like the ring it has now. Yes, I am a sheep. Don’t play me, I am not in this alone. 

And just as a side note I am only a sheep to my Shepherd. Don’t get caught in a bear trap.
