Shadows And Perspective

Shadows equal evil.

Light equals good.


But we need both shadows and light to determine depth. To determine perspective.

It’s a shadow that lets us see an object; where it sits, it’s dimensions, it’s color. If there were no shadows, we couldn’t see a handmade vase because the light would overexpose it and our simple weak eyes couldn’t interpret its beauty

A baby has to feel irritated by hunger in order for her to start crying. How would a parent know she’s hungry if she didn’t cry? If there wasn’t irritation? Irritation being a shadow? As Christians, we are encouraged to rebuke irritation. But it’s the pain that keeps a baby alive. Otherwise, The baby wouldn’t cry and would therefore die.

FEAR keeps us from the path of a dangerous animal. SURVIVAL

PAIN reminds us not to make the same mistakes. LESSONS

SORROW Makes us more compassionate. HUMILITY

I just KNOW that there is so much I don’t know! This here reminds me of how human I am and how I am so destined to sin that my livelihood relies on what I normally ask God to rid of. Knowing this, my prayers are different. I don’t ask God to remove these things but that His will is done in my life. He knows what’s best for me.

I can tell

I can tell when someone is pretending to be kind to me.

I can tell when someone is bragging about their success but disguises it with humility.

I can tell when someone is making an effort to prove that they’re better than me.

I can tell

So i let them speak

I play along

I act naive

Because the more they do it, the sillier they look and that’s amusing to me.

Rumors are your blessings

Mat 5:11 “People will insult you and hurt you. They will lie and say all kinds of evil things about you because you follow me. But when they do that, know that great blessings belong to you.

Why does the enemy choose to target our testimony? I guess there isn’t anything worse than having a bad rep and represent Jesus at the same time. It’s a smart tactic. Bad rep = zero credibility. 
Life has taught me that even if haters spread rumors that are indeed true, that still doesn’t stop Gods name from being glorified. 
Fam, remember, when they talk, you get blessings and they get nothing but bitterness. 


Are you controlled by your sinful nature? 

1Co 3:3 You are still not following the Spirit. You are jealous of each other, and you are always arguing with each other. This shows that you are still following your own selfish desires. You are acting like ordinary people of the world.

Don’t prove to the world that you’re being controlled by sin, rather, listen to scripture and stop acting like the ordinary people of this world. Think about your blessings. Think about your testimony. Tell the enemy that he no longer has a foothold in your life and fix what ever you need to fix! In Jesus name, amen!

Love like I’m not scared

Today, this sentence hit me. I heard it in a song many many times but today it stuck out the most. “Love like I’m not scared…”

I questioned, how can you be scared to love? Whoa, a bunch of personal scenarios came to mind.

Recently, I promised myself to never have a close friend again. I pledged to make Jesus my only BFF forever and always amen. Although that sounds ideal, it’s not correct to maintain a life in this way. We need friends to sharpen us spiritually. It is good to have a close friend that will correct us when we are wrong in a loving manner.

Because of my bitterness towards the friends I’ve had in the past, I’ve pushed away some amazing people. I’m going to try to live by this phrase and give new friends a chance. Also, I’m going to learn from the old ones. I’m going to love unconditionally. No matter the mistake, or hurt, or issue a good friend may cause to me or others, I’m still going to love and remain a friend.  I’m not going to pretend to keep a civil friendship because we are brothers and sisters in Christ, that’s just a load of fecal matter. Jesus is the first to peep that hypocrisy and I’m not planning on living that way with anyone.

To my enemies, even if I’ve apologized for all my wrong doings towards you and you choose to hate me anyway, I’m still going to love you and think about all the good things we went through together. I’m not going to lie, I may think of some bad stuff. Thank God I have a good friend that loves me with flaws and all – that taught me something useful. “Replace a bad memory with a good one”. So I am.

God tells us to love anyway. Love without being scared of getting hurt. Love knowing that we can or will get hurt and its okay with us. Jesus loved us KNOWING we were going to hurt Him in return. He died on the cross KNOWING we were going to pay no mind to His death. If we are supposed to be like Christ, we should learn to love the same way.

I’m not letting my past experience ruin potential friendships. I’m going to love even if there is a possibility that the friend will abandon me. I’m going to love even if there is a possibility that this person  is going to hurt me. I’m going to love like I’m not scared.

Human Perfection Does Not Exist

You know the 10 commandments right? Let’s recap.

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make idols.
  3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  5. Honor your father and your mother.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet

These law given to Moses by God are perfect. They are our guidelines to live a life pleasing to God. Now, ask yourself a question. Are you keeping all of them on a daily basis?

  • Is God the absolute first person in your life? Hehe think twice. Did you skip church one day to be with that boy?
  • Are you worshipping any idols? What’s that in your hand? Oh its a phone? Why won’t you leave that at home for a week or so? Oh you can’t?
  • Did you say OMG today? Did you say, TGIF because Friday you’re going clubbing?
  • What do you do Sundays after church? I’m sure the answer isn’t “I went to another church until 12AM” or “ I prayed all day until I went beddy bye bye”
  • Did you ever talk back to your parents? Yes you did, sit down.
  • Did you ever kill a person? Of course you didn’t good for you. Did you ever kill a person’s dreams or character?
  • Oh my favorite. Did you ever cheat on your spouse? Aww how faithful. How about that chick you were looking at on IG twerking? How about that dude posing in skin tight undies. MCM?
  • Oh good, you’ve never robbed a bank? Praise the Lord Praise the Lord. Go back to welfare and give back all the money you used for food stamps. Does someone need to amend their taxes? That pen you were chewing on, where did you get it? Is that your boyfriend you flirting with on the phone or does he belong to someone else? (this can apply to may commandments but I just want to put it here
  • “KG, what this ‘bearing false witness’?”  Sit down, based on your Instagram, you did it 1hr ago. #gossip
  • “KG, what is this covet?” If you read my very first blog you would know the answer to this but ill tell you. Stop being jealous of that girl that looks cuter than you. The effort you’re making to be like her #copying #extremediet etc. is coveting.

Now that we all agree that no one here is perfect, let’s move on.

Why does God tell us to follow these rules in order to go to Heaven if we obviously can’t keep them? Well, don’t you think God already knows we can’t? This explains the Cross. God sent His son to die so that we can live and go to heaven if we believe in Him. The only reason why God communicates with us even when we don’t follow these laws is because of Jesus. I’m not giving the okay to break the laws no no no. I’m saying that if ever we do, we HAVE to ask for forgiveness to be forgiven forever and for good. I would love to say more about this but the shorter the blog the better. You guys have short attention spans.


Salvation is a gift and its not based on what we do or our spiritual performance. We will fail every day. That’s just a fact. We want to live in LOVE with God and we want to obey Him because we LOVE HIM! And when we fail, we want to get back up and receive this gift of forgiveness and salvation. We need to trust that the Cross is enough to pay for our sins. So, The end



Take Root: Jesus is more than that

As humans, we only seek the verse in the bible that corresponds to our situation. If I am sick, I search for verses about those who were sick and healed. If I am broke, I search for verses that speak of prosperity and seasons of abundance. If I am sad, I seek verses on how the Lord catches my tears in bottles. When I am single, I search for verses that speak of marriage, faith, declaration and, purity.

As devoted Christians, we are making a huge mistake. I’m not saying that it’s bad to look for verses in hopes to overcome our problems, no no. I’m saying that there is more to the life of Jesus than the “specifics”.

I was one that looked for the “specifics”. It brought hope for the moment but I wasn’t well informed of the power of that verse. In order to fully comprehend the potential of that ONE verse, we have to fully comprehend the faith behind it.

The reason for the cross is much higher than the hope for healing. The death on the cross is above and beyond the lack of food in the fridge. The death on the cross tramples on the hope of finally getting a wife and a family. The death on the cross is the reason why we won’t suffer in hell fire for eternity. The death of Jesus is the reason why we have access to the presence of the Holy One to even ASK for a boo. Jesus is the reason why we have communication with the Most High God so we need to be knowin’ lol.

The root of the bible is the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. If we don’t take interest of this, the “specifics” will go through one ear and come out the other in the moment of distress. You want your garden to flourish? Deepen your root. You want a husband? Well, dig your nose in the word without picking out your interests and see the mighty power of God manifest in that category. Not only will you get your husband, but you’ll keep him. How bout that?

@authkg all day err day. Shout out to my friend JA. You duh bomb.



Arguments do not kill a relationship. Unhealthy, poor fighting patterns do.


  1. All arguments must be resolved. “I did this and I was wrong” and say it out loud with your mouth.
  1. Request forgiveness.
  1. Keep asking until partner says “yes I forgive you.”
  1. Don’t let the day end without resolving the conflict.
  1. Stick to ground rules.  a. Don’t say “never” or “always. b. Stay on the issue. c.No character assassination i.e. “you are so selfish” d. Once forgiven, discussion can not be used as evidence for next argument.
  1. No further discussion unless you agree to the above ground rules.
  1. Realize that you and your partner will always have disagreements.
  1. Realize that forgiveness has to be a way of life.



Today I begin my daily brainstorm blog thingy to expand my ideas for preaching purposes. This is going to be a great way for me to learn more about the bible. I just love learning the mysteries of the Lord through the Holy Spirit.

To remain authentic, I must always remember that I am merely a sinful human. I am no different than any other person in this world. I am no better than any other man that walks this earth. Whatever I know has simply been given to me by the Lord above. My grammar stinks but I am more than certain that whoever is reading will get the point.

Topic: Covetousness

I noticed that I barely hear any sermons on this weird looking word. It’s one of the Ten Commandments right? Covet? Thou shalt not covet?

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

— Exodus 20:17 (NIV)

It pretty much means not to desire someone else’s stuff and plot to take it away. I guess that also includes non-tangible things like a smaller waist or longer hair.

Let me modernize that verse.

Don’t get jealous of your friends crib. Don’t thirst over your friend’s wife or, his female family members, or his Lamborghini or Ferrari, or anything that belongs to him.

This word “covet” is very personal to me. I once desired something that didn’t belong to me, in fact, I already had my own. I plotted to obtain what didn’t belong to me and it lead to destruction. If you find yourself being sneaky to get something that doesn’t belong to you, it’s wrong. Stop and think, “Will the Lord bless me with this?”

I have also experienced being plotted against. Someone wanted something that belonged to me. This person was sniffing out the perfect time to snatch away and…SNATCH! The good thing is that it didn’t prosper. I eventually got it back.

I have experienced coveting over someone’s talents. I felt the need to be better and more glorious. It took over my mind and spare time. I was too busy finding ways to exalt myself and before I knew it, I forgot the purpose of my talent.

I also experienced someone who coveted over my talents. Again, SNATCH!

Coveting is the root of sins that are more consequential. For example, you covet over someone’s car and the thought became an action. You take it upon yourself to snatch it away and now there are bigger consequences. Broken law #10 becomes broken law #8 (thou shalt not steal).

Low self-esteem is the result of covetousness. As women, we see other females who look better, or wear better shoes, or rock expensive watches. The Lord warns us not to covet over these things because it can consume us. We become depressed because we just can’t lose that much weight. We begin to over spend because we want that MC watch.

The solution:

First things first, we must recognize that wanting what someone else has is a sin and give it to God in prayer.

Ask God what He wants you to have, or what He thinks about you. The answer is written in the bible or just google it. Seriously I do it all the time. You can find helpful verses or even blogs about the thing.

Work on it daily because the urges or thoughts don’t go away in one day. When God sees your efforts, He will complete the rest.

The purpose of recognizing our issues with coveting is to “nip it in the bud” or to prevent worse things happening to us.

Last but not least, stop trying to make people covet over the things YOU have.
