A Lonely Journey

Celebrate Life

No matter how many organizations you join, how many groups you belong to, how many friends you have on FB or in real life, how big your family is, or even if you’re married; you will find there are some parts of your life that you have to walk alone to get to the place God wants you to be… and it scares us…

…scares us, to think we will find ourselves somewhere beyond the reach of our family, the support of our friends, and the love of our spouses. It’s terrifying to think we might end up in a situation where even our cries to God seemingly fall on deaf ears… but it’s necessary…

…necessary for us to have our faith tested so that we can grow, so that we can become better human beings, so that we can learn to believe and trust in the path we’ve been called to walk. It’s not that our family and friends are gone, or that God has stopped listening and loving us; they’re not and they haven’t… the truth…

…the truth is on the path to our destiny, we will all reach a point of solitude and loneliness. We will all get to a point where we want to quit and consider going back to the comforts of where we’ve been because it seems easier that way. My brothers and sisters, that’s where we need to rely on our faith. That’s where we need to have the courage to take that next step. That’s where we have to know, the burdens we carry our necessary. The darkness we endure is just a small part of our journey… and if we continue moving forward, we will arrive at a place more beautiful than any that we’ve ever been… God is…

…God is not a religious concept of a being in the sky looking down at us. God is a part of all that we are and all that we do. Don’t lose focus on the way to your greatness. The journey has always been designed to break you down and build you up.

I’m Thankful For…

With so many blessings to be thankful for, I’ll be celebrating thanks for the rest of my life.

For starters, I’m thankful for God, my family, and all of my friends from childhood through adulthood.

I’m thankful for my friends from California to New York, and other parts of the world including South Africa, India, Korea, Japan, Brazil, Germany, Haiti, Belize, and everywhere else where my people are at.

I’m thankful for everyone who has ever inspired me to be a better person in any capacity.

I’m thankful for everyone who’s working to uplift human beings all over the world or who live for causes bigger than themselves.

I’m thankful for all the wonderful people I haven’t met yet who will be influential in my life someday.

Thank you for all that you are and all that will be.
