My Visit to U of M Twin Cities

 

Last week Saturday, my friend invited me to the Annual Unity Dinner at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.It was hosted by the Black Student Union and it was not only Black students in the room.

Although I was a bit late, I had to rush from work down to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus.

Round table setting with different Individuals

The dinner was a unique occasion that focused on discussing real issues that are ongoing in the world today.

Art is a voice for change!

The four questions asked:

  1. What is Black/African American culture in United States, and to what extend can people have access to that culture?
  1. How do we deal with Black student isolation on campus, and is there a way we can support admissions?

Round table discussion for each question

3. How do we dismantle police brutality and violence against our (Black) community?

4. What can our community (UMN) do to make an impact, and what would you like to see from your peers and administrators?

One way of been great , is surrounding yourself with people that are great.

Some suggestions that were brought up on the topic of police brutality.  First, it was discussed that improving this infrastructure can be done by providing education.  This means informing black individuals on how to guide themselves with optimism and shattering the stereotype in Black culture.

Another good point was removing the pipeline of imprisonment and improving the cultural change in the police system.

The Result for Loving God

“Tell yourself, I will never be defeated by satan”

What is in Love that command Exploit?

Love never get defeated in battles.

Daniel 3:1-24 

Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?”

They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.”

When you love God , you serve him continually. Love is an undeniable power that everyone qualify in the kingdom of God.

Malachi 3:17-18  

17 “On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. 18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.

God plan is always better than your own plans. Put your plan aside be you can not love God and fail.

John 21:15-17

15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.

Ask yourself, Do I love God?

Check your heart in the corner of your home to see if you love God.

Loving God require power.

Requirement for Divine Guidance

” When God leads,it automatically favor us”

God never works for you but He works with you to experience unbelievable realms of favors. However, assuming you know all things or making plans for yourself without God can be the beginning of your own destruction. In everything we do always remember God so that He can destroy the enemy for your sake.

Here are some divine guidance we need to apply in our lives:

  1. Watchfulness

We need to be sensitive and listen to what He is telling us.  There are times that God uses other people situation to lead us. We need to be sensitive to His words which are found in the Holy Book!

In the book of Isaiah 42:18-21:

18 “Hear, you deaf;
    look, you blind, and see!
19 Who is blind but my servant,
    and deaf like the messenger I send?
Who is blind like the one in covenant with me,
    blind like the servant of the Lord?
20 You have seen many things, but you pay no attention;
    your ears are open, but you do not listen.”
21 It pleased the Lord
    for the sake of his righteousness
    to make his law great and glorious.

2. Be full of praise when you call on God

Always praise God in every situation because only Him can rescue us from trouble.

In 1 Samuel 30:4-8:

Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep. And David’s two wives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the widow of Nabal the Carmelite, had been taken captive. Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

Then David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech’s son, “Please bring the ephod here to me.” And Abiathar brought the ephod to David. So David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?”

And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”

Divine guidance can be acquired through continuous faith in God.

Doubter do not experience favor from God.

So when we praise God, do it with all your heart and let it be heart felt to move God’s hand in your LIFE.

Hardwork Does Payoff!

It’s been hard getting things to go the right direction this year. I have prayed and fasted a lot for divine favors and grace from God. One of my projects went well and some are still on hold for now. But I have not given up and  remain focus on my plans!

Planning is very important because it gives you a road map on what direction you want your ideas to go.  Am a very busy person meaning on one hand I have a 930-715 job and on the other hand am an entrepreneur and blogger now.

I can honestly tell you that all my hard work is payoff gradually.
