To God be the Glory

 

To God be the Glory
I have written a play called “One Night in the Lives of Slaves “. If the play is done anywhere I will not share it with you until after the play has been presented. If it has not been accepted anywhere by February 2016, I will share it with you at that time. The play is not to offend rather it is to enlighten. I understand the rebel flag being a symbol of racism, however we cannot, nor should we try to erase history. The Jews do not try to pretend nor erase in the collective minds of the world that the Holocaust never happen. Nor do they try to wipe away that part of their history. It may be ugly to some Germans, but it happen.
I have worked with some people that have told me their parents taught them differently from what they have grown to know as truth. The Holocausts was a dark, dark part of the history of Germany. Slavery is a dark part of the history of the United States. As a people we cannot close our eyes and pretend it did not happen.
Neither should we sanctify the heroes and heroines of the human race. I read the story of Ann Frank and I also read the story of the ten Boom family. I have read many articles about Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King. Let us remember they were all very good people, but they were all people. For some of us they were gods.
I am not saying any of this to puff myself up. According to Matthew 23:11 “But he that is the greatest among you shall be your servant; and whosoever shall exalt himself shall be humbled……..
Each day I pray just to do God’s will. There will be trouble in all of our lives. Some have trouble that affect others more than others. Remember I said “when” trouble comes to all of us. I did not say “If” trouble comes. Some of us think we are smarter than God. We don’t need him to handle this little problem. My theory is taking everything to God in prayer. In his arms He will take and shield you, you will find a solace there.
