The more we engage in honesty, the less we will have to induce forgiveness.
A person that grants forgiveness, has been given a special gift.
When those comes into your life you can forgive without doubt or reservation, not only have you maturity, but you've found grace.
You've found a friendship to be cherished.
People in our society will continue to have very short flings with the things most beneficial to life. Although they commit to a life long relationship with things that cause the most grief, heartache, and pain. The chemical reactions naturally produced by the human body are far more addictive than any drug made by man. Yet man has the ability to influence the minds and emotions of humans, that create that chemical reaction we perceive as love, hate, depression, and pain. Most of us are addicts. What are you addicted to? If you have been unhappy most of your life, you are addicted to unhappiness. You attract it and pursue it daily.
Picking a new addiction is very possible. Becoming addicted to Joy, Peace and Love is an option. Giving up on poverty, financial heart aches, and low self esteem is an option. Try doing the opposite of what you have done for so many years. Seek wise counsel and master self! Sacrifice and achieve. There is no more time for excuses and blaming.
Service leads to a life of influence and authority. Giving back attracts everything you hope to have in your life. If energy is transferred, and you hold on to what you have, how can more energy return to your life. The energy you possess was given to you with the expectation of you using it to increase someone else. And you wonder why you remain the same??? Give away what was given, and it will be multiplied.
One can never take from this world more than he has the ability to freely give. Once you understand "what you are" is more important than "who you are" then you will realize you can possess nothing. But you have the ability to give everything. The only time that you have is this present moment, and the best opportunity you have is now!
"Private Victory Proceeds Public Victory"
What do you do, think and act upon when no one is watching?
This is a reflecting of you!
"You cant talk yourself out of problems you've behaved yourself into". I have no Excuse, and it is not due to the lack of available and popular Excuses. There's a multitude of Excuses floating around our planet like the latest and greatest strand of the flu virus! The number of Excuses being used around here in our communities are EXTENSIVE. Yet I have no Excuse to justify why I am where I am! Maybe that's because I am where I want to be. Or maybe I am where I chose to be based upon the Excuses I did not make. Maybe our decisions determine your destiny.
At this point in my life, I have realized a great amount of people died, and sacrificed everything to afford me opportunity and freedom. Freedom has never been free. Even God sacrificed his only son. With that being said, I will continue to capitalize on the opportunities I have, in order to leave behind a better world. I will no longer blame another person or group for my personal progress or lack. I will not wait for someone to change their thoughts and beliefs before I take advantage of the limitless opportunities at hand. I will not attempt to change the mindset another adult. Instead I will invest my time influencing the imaginations of kids. I will no longer engage in verbal warfare with individuals that believe social media post are equal to and greater than actually volunteering, mentoring, tutoring and raising their own children. Sometimes I wonder what a person that endured the Transatlantic voyage as a slave would say about how we fail to take full advantage of the opportunities we have. What would the families that lived as slave on a plantation say about our lack of respect for life.
Many are told your life is full of sin... Without God your spirit, and soul will die. You must have a relationship with Jesus Christ, or at death you will suffer eternally. After being saved, after death, you will live eternally with God in Heaven. Very few times have I been taught the reason to have a relationship with Christ is to become a citizen of heaven here on earth. As a citizen here on earth, we have the responsibility of building God Kingdom, as it is in Heaven. Why are so many people seeking a relationship with God and waiting around for death. Is the true assignment here, or making it to Heaven?
Because we know not our spiritual value, it is reflected in the physical. Because we have failed to offer ourselves, love, honor, respect, and honesty, we can not recognize these attributes from others. Therefore the manner in which others treat us is a reflection of how we treat ourselves. The power of life is within. We do not possess life...we are life.
Simply by design.
Today I have been given sight for the first time. With this ability the opportunity to intimately know your value is clear. It is improbable to compare you to another and expect a better outcome. The image in which you were designed, is also mine. But you are the upgraded kind. You were created, bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. To compare you to another is to face a mirror and say "I am not good enough, God has failed in creating me". Instead, I stand today in utter amazement, able to see your true beauty.
Beauty having nothing to do with your physical appearance, but everything to do with your physical and spiritual capabilities. In the past, I have neglected to realize, the same attributes which define you as a women are the same attribute many used to define God. You possess the ability to give life and you give life in many way. You deserve my respect, simply by design, The Woman.
It doesn't matter who you are,
you can fake an image.
Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram,
there's not much truth in it.
Under achieving men and women,
admired as modern day heroes.
With thousands of likes online, while the time vested in their kids, zero.
Fatherhood was broken here,
Motherhood was exchanged for fame.
You ignored ever sign on the wall.
Quickly you accepted this game.
You placed that ball in their hands parent, along with that gun too.
Maybe the pages of education weighed to heavy, although you held tight to "I don't know what to do"..
Letting go of the excuses, No, there's never a compromise...
Been living that way for too long, finding comfort in the lies.
Fatherhood is broken...Motherhood was exchanged..
How many people can honestly say that they let their light shine instead of focusing on the temporary shine of another? If we learn more about who we are and where our source of power comes from then we would realize we are more than famous, and we have the power to change the world, our country, our state, our community our family!!! Be a living example! You will sacrifice! It won't be easy!!
It is fun and amazing to have PURPOSE!!!
Have you ever attempted to change your world? I am willing to stand with you!!!
Be courageous!!!!! Live life!!!!!!
