#RIP Whitney

I had a blog prepared but in the light of today being the day that The ICON Whitney Houston is laid to rest I wanted to write something in honor of her and her struggle. While the details of Whitney’s death are not clear, what is clear is that she was a God-fearing Christian woman. Yet her public life was what so many women experience in private. She loved God and could not find a way to translate his promises into her everyday life. God’s faithfulness could have provided more than a legendary career it could have been wise counsel in a failing marriage, wisdom in parenting a child of divorce, more than a conqueror to addiction, and peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of frustration. Please do not think I am judging Whitney Houston, because I am not. I am hoping that we can look at her life and realize that we have all been there. Why she died doesn’t matte as much as it matters that she died young and her victory was not yet fulfilled. I am sad for all Christian women that are losing at life in any area of life. From the rich to the poor as Christians we have got to show the world that God is greater than the trials and tribulations of this world. Unfortunately, that is not something that God does without our own effort. Intellectually we have got to do more for ourselves. When you pay attention to people that overcame addiction the people that do not relapse are the people that did it for themselves! Wining is your choice and no God, man, or million can do that for you. Let’s look at our own lives and in honor of Whitney let’s make better decisions and give God glory with our lives. Let’s decide to do better and get it done regardless. Don’t try, do, and let nothing stand in your way. Jay-Z says that when great performers die young they leave a good-looking corpse. Whitney left more than that she left a public struggle that denied her of her inheritance a long, prosperous, healthy life and a death in the Lord after having fulfilled long life. I pray for her family and their supernatural peace and comfort in the midst of this storm. I pray that Whitney is present with The Lord and free to watch over those that she loved in this life sending them peace and comfort.
