He's Not Heavy, He's My Brother!

There is a painting by an African-American artist I saw when I was younger, depicting a man reaching over a wall to help another man over to freedom. The caption under it read, “He’s not heavy, he’s my brother.” This painting was inspired by a song written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell in 1969. The first verse in the song said:

The road is long with many a winding turn that leads us to who knows were, who knows when but I’m strong enough to carry him. He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother.

Now, I have this same painting in my home...
In these uncertain times there are a lot of brothers and sisters down who not only need a hand out but more importantly need a hand up. Especially from those of us who are in a position to help someone out. We should help lift them up because in helping them we really help ourselves.

Dear God,
Show me how to lift up my brothers and sisters who are not heavy. Give me discernment on who to lift and wh…

Bilal - Tainted Love

Image
This is a jam session. An act of improvisation without preparation.

This is a video continuation of the Bilal and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Bomb Shelter saga entitled, "Tainted Love."

Known by many as Synthpop duo Soft Cell's big hit in 1981, "Tainted Love" was originally composed by Ed Cobb, formerly of The Four Preps and originally recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964 as the B-side to "My Bad Boy's Coming Home". The original version was by no means a commercial success. In fact, it was a flop. However, in 1973, while British club DJ Richard Searling was on a trip to the U.S., he purchased a copy and found the Motown-influenced sound was a perfect match for the music movement with was growing in the UK club scene referred to as "Northern Soul. Searling took the song and popularized it.

With new found popularity, Gloria Jones tried again, re-recording "Tainted Love" in 1976. But this again failed to chart.

Several years later, So…

Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossip, Mary was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old & Lazarus was dead. Now, what’s YOUR excuse?

Why can’t God use you?
