I try to stay away from religon online. I really do. Not so much because it’s a touchy topic, but because I’m still learning a lot and don’t want to say the wrong thing. I’d hate to confuse someone more than I am. So I just stay away from it! This post is about something I’ve said months ago. Maybe even closer to a year now.
PARENTS YOU ARE FIGHTING A POWERFUL FORCE FOR YOUR KIDS!!!
Their spirits are low
Knoring, numbing, mental suffering – mental pain= Spiritual WARFARE
This is how I know that I’m right: I went to a funeral today. It felt more like a soulful Sunday service. The young man laid there with his ball in one hand, while some of the most diverse folks shared their last words to his soul-less body. For conversation, let’s say his name is “Harry. Harry was loved by many. You should have seen all the t-shirt’s, pendants, and verbal displays of love.
The church was filled to the max. People had to leave -it was just that packed! There were whites, blacks, and just about everything in the middle. I looked around and noticed that representatives from his college were there, his high school, the basketball team, -coaches, community friends. Some folks, like my son flew in just for this fella’s funeral. I won’t even begin on all of his FB messages. As I canvassed the place further, I noticed that at least 25% were my age; let’s just say 25-35ish, 20% were senior citizens, and about 10% were younguns.
· One person wrote on his fb page: Today was the last time seeing you. Facing this one was of the hardest things I’ve had too. Its so hard to say goodbye to someone you deeply cared about. Please just watch over me and when you see me becoming weak or giving up, whisper in my ear and tell me don’t give up and stay strong. I love you. -Harry

Harry died of a gunshot wound to that back. My question is why would anyone in their sound mind want to take the life of such a promising guy? The shooter was a commodity! He had a mother. He was only 19like Harry, and also like Harry, a lover of life. Think about it. It makes No sense.
The Bible says that we have a Spirit of Power, Faith, Love and a Sound mind, The Holy Spirit. The evil spirit of depression that attaches itself to us directly attacks these fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Who’s feeding your child information, emotions, and self worth? I don’t think they are born to want a fly car, shoes, etc. Don’t lose your child to darkness.
The shooters mom sent flower’s to Harry’s parent’s home, so I know they were half-behind decent parents. But because her was a commodity of spiritual war fare……………….two mamas, two families, two funeral homes two churches….you get my point. Everyone is affected!
Harry is an example, but don’t get it twisted. They start YOUNG. Give your children guidance. Make sure they know who has their back when nobody else does. ; that who is that mess that they see on TV. or on the streets is not what their goal in life should be to attain.
Teach them conflict resolution.
I truly believe that you teach your child by not only what you say, but also what you don’t say or do. It’s either you or the streets that’s going to give the lesson. Darkness is always waiting for an entry way into the mind of the youth. Do your part! Mama Up with the right armour!
Read books , join play groups; organized sports, ask a wiser person, a genuine role model, an experienced christain, mother for guidance. Don’t totally disregard professional help, but do something, It was a sad day (even though they worshiped all up & through that place) Either one of these boys could be yours. Which are you raising?
I feel my help coming on…………….
