Freedom rings in HIS-STORY

By: Kiara S. Themes

I remember trying to figure out why my ancestors were treated so badly

Why were there calloused hands and blistered feet on every black father who his children had to hear him call another man master?

Why were there tears in the eyes and deep oceans of pain in the heart of black mothers?

Who that same master snuck into their cabins at night.

I kept replaying the image of the fright

My view on black history had my ignorance stuck on repeat

Constantly contemplating allowing hatred to cause my own self defeat

When I was of the world, of the world answers is what I seeked

Until I met a woman who led me to a man

Which FUTHER LED  me understand there is no black history without his-story

I said there is no black history without HIS STORY

Like Harriet who was inspired by Moses when he told pharaoh let my people go

She led her people so

By Christ God let her people go

Traveling through those dark paths to the Underground Railroad

And eventually to their freedom.

Or

When Martin Luther King had a dream

On the steps of the Lincoln memorial he screamed

I have a dream, I have a dream

He told his father

Like Joseph he had a dream

Which eventually led to freedom.

But still one of the most heard questions in Black History conversation is

Why didn’t God block slavery

Because what God doesn’t block he will bless

The answer to a generation of questions

Is

Slavery had to happen because it was predestined

Like when Israel came out of bondage with God’s provision

With all the materials for the tabernacle in their possession

See it is all part of divine process for us to be in a temporary wilderness

Notice I said temporary

Because pain doesn’t last forever it’s just part of the progress

And Christ is in the middle

So no matter what textbooks try to teach us about our history

They could never teach us about true freedom

Teaching me of black women and men being hung on a tree but never about the man that was nailed to a tree that freed them

About whips and lashes on the backs of black slaves but never about the lashes and persecution upon the one who saves

Us all

So Generations rise up, and realize you’re like Martin

There’s a king in you

Which points me to the true KING

THE KING PRIEST REDEMER OF THE NATIONS THERE IS NO BLACK HISTORY WITHOUT CHRIST IN THE CELEBRATION.

So allow me to introduce the first date in His-story when freedom rang

JOHN 19:30 WHEN HE CRIED OUT ON THE CROSS IT IS FINISED THAT’S WHEN FREEDOM Ringed, WHEN HE ROSE AGAIN ON THE 3rd  DAY with all power in his hands THAT’S WHEN FREEDOM Ringed. WHEN CHRIST PROCLAIMED BY HIS NAME WE ARE FREE INDEED THAT’S WHEN FREEDOM REIGNED!

So the freedom of Jesus rings receive the call don’t ignore it

And I’ve never heard FREEDOM RING LOUDER THAN HIS-STORY
