Life and Death – Who Do You Miss? #SpiritualSundays

Written by Guest Blogger: Angie Bee

November is a truly special month for me.  It was the month that my first daughter was born in 1990.  It was the month that my mother died in 1999 and November 2012 was the month that my Lord let my husband down the road to find out about me.  November, it is a time for the leaves to change colors and fall to the ground and it is the month where we gather together as family to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast.

Let’s look at the month of December!  Now, that was the month where by grandparents wed and spent nearly 50 years together as husband and wife.  December allowed me to witness my daughters as they were baptized together at Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit Michigan and December is the month that Christians gather together to celebrate the birth of Christ.  December is also the month that we celebrated the life of my mother, and her funeral service still lives in my heart nearly 20 years later.

Life and Death.  Think about the people that entered your life this past year and consider the deaths; the new opportunities and the doors that were closed. Reflect upon the ebbs and flows in your life this year and take a moment to see how God led you and kept you through it all.  You may be considering your “New Year’s Resolution” during these last two calendar months of the year, but are you considering the path that God has for you during the New Year?

Pastor Joel Osteen preached a message today (November 26, 2017) that talked about stepping out on faith to walk a path, even if you don’t have the destination or the details of the journey.  Abraham told his wife that they were moving because:  “The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you”. –  Genesis 12:1 (NIV).  If I told some of my relatives that God told us to move, their first response to me would be “WHO GONNA PAY FOR THAT?!”

Well, during 2017 I realized that I was stepping out on faith much more than I had been doing before, and I am excited about this growth.  I see that God has enlarged my territory, he has given me more wisdom and my discernment is quite active now!  WOW!  Thank you Lord!  I have truly grown in 2017 and my “resolution” for 2018 is to keep on stepping out with faith to follow the will of God!

Back in June of 2006, I was given the opportunity to grow.  The Jericho Broadcast Network granted me a daily streaming radio show where I shared scripture, interviewed recording artists and became the very first radio show in the United States to feature Holy Hip Hop music.  The Hottest Home Hotspot WORLDWIDE earned listeners from Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom, it was syndicated over seven additional radio networks in multiple 24-hour time slots, and I was honored to earn an award from the One Accord DJ Alliance as the Best Female Radio Show host in the country.  PRAISE GOD!   That show is now ending and a through the union between my husband and I, there shall now be a new life!

Beginning in January 2018 we invite you to log on and participate in a new talk show entitled “Gettin’ Over The Hump with Angie BEE & Bartee”.  Join us on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 7:30 pm EST as we stream live on our page at www.Facebook.com/AngieBEEandBarteeProductions  This show is the brainchild of my husband Bartee and I am excited to be by his side as we give life to this new outlet!  Our goal is to share the goodness of the Lord and offer encouragement to others as they attend to “get over the hump!”

The New Living Translation of Proverbs 18:21 says “The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences”.  Death will occur.  Doors will close and opportunities will end and finalize.  We miss those that have died, but we must retain what we learned from them and pass that information along to the next generation.  Just keep your eyes on God, take His hand and walk the path He has placed on you.  I love to talk about the goodness of the Lord and through this new talk show I’ll be ready to eat the fruit He has for me in 2018 and beyond.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and we will catch you on “Hump Day”!

#SpiritualSundays will be back January 2018..

Twas the Night Before Christmas

What does this holiday season mean to you? Why do I ask? Because it means something different to the people that you talk too! Everyone will give you a different spin on it and many of you when you hear their analogy; will maybe raise an eyebrow, or two! For some; you can tell what it means without asking them; because they will show you. You see them all over the news and social media standing in these long lines; waiting to purchase material items! They will fight and curse out their neighbor because they took the last television and they really needed that television! Come on now; when did these stores only sell televisions on special occasions? Couldn’t they get that television at other time? So, you are going to make yourself look stupid and cause bodily harm to another human being for something that could possibly break the next day after you purchase it?

Gifts

gift_2

When did we get so focused on gifts? I know you have heard the saying “It is better to give than receive”; does that apply to the holiday season; or has it just been attached to this time of year? When did material things become sort of like the soul focus on this time of year? The stores start putting out holiday decorations way before it’s time; to get people to start buying them early; hence making their financial statements look mighty impressive! They beef up customer service and hire more people in retail doing this time of year; to ensure they have enough hands-on deck to handle the abundance of shoppers! They sit around in their board meetings and team meetings to see how and what they can do to get the most people in their stores; so, they can spend the most money! Only to lay off countless numbers of people after the hype has dwindled down because the holiday season is over; now you have people out of work that were only hired to fill a need of getting them in more money!

What if?

What if there were no stores to shop at and spend all your money on gifts? What if the only thing that was available was a piece of paper and a pen/pencil and you had to actually write a note to each person in your life; maybe just the ones that matter! The same folks that you went out of your way to buy all these gifts for! What words would you use? How would you start off your first sentence? Would you talk about the past, present and future? Would your words hurt them or make them feel loved? Would you tell them how much they mean to you? How do you think they would respond; if they were giving this note during the holiday season; instead of an actual gift? Take your time and think about that one….

Something to Meditate On

floral_14 After reading this; does it change your mind? Does it make you rethink anything that you have grown accustomed to doing? Will you do anything differently going forward? Will you incorporate anything that you haven’t been doing to what you are already doing? The point here is just to give some insight, make you think; and possibly start a conversation that will expand your thought process and the thought process of those around you. Whatever this holiday season means to you; let it be filled with love, peace and kindness; that isn’t just self-centered but worldwide.
