Not Easily Broken

June 24, 2015

The world as we know it is still the same, but the people within it has changed with magnified evil that cannot be ignored. What ignorance doesn’t do is make me weak and hopeless; instead, it strengthens my faith. I am not easily broken by Satan’s attacks nor am I broken by the evil He stirs up in people.

Conversations such as racism can no longer be ignored. Babies are not born racist, it is taught at home. We attend Church, read the Bible and out of that same mouth, we both praise God and curse others.

Change comes from within – you have to want it bad enough to make a difference.

Here is just a tiny glimpse of my book, “Get Thee Behind Me”

The smell of fresh blood was in the air.  Everywhere I looked, there were bodies…dead bodies.  Some I recognized and some I did not…some were family members…some were friends – low and behold, I was the only survivor.  But wait a minute, I hear people talking and dogs barking.  I see white men with whips and guns in their hands and spying eyes to see if anyone had survived.  I quickly trampled over the dead bodies and stumbled over my mom –  part of me wanted to cry – part of me wanted to scream.  I knew if I did either, they would capture and kill me like they did the others.

Deja Vous

It’s always tough when you try to piece your life back together after a tragic incident; whether it’s losing a loved one, losing your home, financial burdens, sickness, or spiritual death.  Starting all over again takes a tremendous amount of strength, focus, obedience, trust, and in my situations, faith and constant conversations with God.

Often times, you go through life trying to be accepted by friends, family members, parents, and your spouse – hope is often lost in pleasing people.  No matter how much you try, you can’t please everyone.  I would often get the guilty stare down when I say the word, “no”.

I have also noticed, the closer I get to God, the more people will bring up the past.  I refuse to be defined by my past – the moment I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Personal Savior, the old me was put away and the new me was born.  The past does not define my future.

Each and every morning, I thank God for keeping my heart beating throughout the night and filling my lungs with oxygen.  The alarm clock didn’t wake me up, He did.
