Blanket

Recently, on my Twitter Web site, a Christian had posted, "Do you worship King Jesus or King Michael?"
The question was soaked with judgment. I decided to respond with the following..."I worship King Jesus, but I have compassion for Michael Jackson, and try not to judge him. I pray Michael knew King Jesus as his Savior." It felt freeing to release what I felt . I do not agree with Michael's lifestyle of drugs and questionable accusations of hurting children however,Michael has forgiveness available to him just as the Twitter writer does. I believe being an entertainer such as Michael, brings loneliness and exhaustion and at times hopelessness as a companion.
Then I think of Michael's children. Especially Blanket, with the same brown lonely eyes as young Michael ,peeking out from behind someone's legs, as he stood on stage for his Dad's Memorial Service. Such an unusual name for a child, makes me wonder if it will perpetuate the never grow up mentality of Michael, or if it was simply because he loved his blanket. Symbolically it represents safety, security, warmth...all beautiful adjectives. I pray for Michael's children, who have had lavish love and daily devotion from their Father not to mention all the luxuries they enjoyed with their Daddy. How difficult it will be for them as the days grow longer, and he isn't there anymore. God blesses the Fatherless, and I pray this blessing for these three children, who will never know the shelter Michael showered them with again. Lord hold all three in the blanket of your protection and love, In Jesus name.

Welcome to Faithwriters Judee. This is a delicate subject with Christians, being that Michael was an idol matched only by Elvis. There is the danger that many will worship him in death as they did Elvis. But I miss him and I too pray the Lord's mercy upon him. I believe his children were his saving grace. Surely they must have filled his life with the elements of joy that were missing. And they truly need our prayers now. The Lord Bless You.

Much to ponder. Thank you for sharing your heart - and it is so true that we all have that opportunity to be saved.

May the Lord help us to show compassion to those in the entertainment industry. They need our prayers not our criticisms.It is a very deceptive lifestyle. We must remember, only but for the grace of God, we stand. God is no respecter of person. Well done.
