Words to grow from:
Don’t ever take the opportunity away from yourself to rise up from where life has sat you down. The opportunities are set into play for us as people to rise up or to feel defeated and just lay there. It’s a choice to fight. Do you want it?
On this day I open a conversation for each and everyone of us to have the strength to pull yourself together. Grab your Faith that you once had, maybe you never had faith or don’t understand it. Start by believing in yourself. Not your situation of defeat.
When I was younger I though life was to be as hard as it was. “That was just life” As I’ve grown I come to have a chance to look back and see the place I used to live, what I was doing to cause that internal pain. The paths that brought the hard times on my shoulders. We all know a hard life compared to a easy life. Big difference!! We all agree.
I wrote a article on my wordpress.com web page called Easy. As kids growing, Easy was our best friend. He was always there beside us. Till life came around the corner and showed us down. We tried to get us as Easy walked the other way. Life shoved us back down.
Come on now! 10 years of getting shoved down, we just want to lay there. You get tired. Some of us may gain to think that’s the only path, the only way of living. Why? Because that’s all you would know at that point.
You except instead of overcoming. You grow roots and the box becomes smaller ( you call it home ). Who ever has read this far can understand that this place in life is not for anybody to be at. Tag a friend, make a phone call, reach out and just say hello to your mother or father. A lot of us can’t do those small things because our parents are gone. Or we hold a grudge of some kind that we can’t let go of.
If you’ve read this far I know you’ll share this message just to give a gift of inspiration to a friend.
What I really want to share is this! Enjoy the read.
And you, He made Alive, who were dead in trespasses and sin, in once you walked according to the course of the WORLD, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lust of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which he loves us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by Grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the Heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of his grace in His kindness toward us in Jesus Christ. For by grace you have been saved’ Through Faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them
That is Ephesians 2:1-10,
I’ve read this book in the past and I’m digging back into it. I hope something here has touched you enough to move forward with a view of the light that he places in our hearts for the Holidays.
God Bless, Merry Christmas and may 2017 be a year you’ll always speak about for the years to come. Enjoy your steps ahead, but always watch for that backs. Slip, dip, duck and roll. Think like a boxer and be on your toes. Life wants to knock you down. Just please fight back. Be ready!!
