Good Morning my friend!
It has been a while since my last entry, and a lot has been going on these last 6 months to a year. I wanted to share a little bit of what has been going on in my life, I feel I owe it to you. You subscribed to my blog, and It is my duty and responsibility to deliver my words. Not that you need my words, but it is what you subscribed for, right?
So, here we go!
In one year, I have seen and learned a whole lot about myself, others, friendships, marriage, ministry, love, the importance of friendships, truth about myself and the capabilities that I didn't really believe I had and how to slowly trust myself to take action in making those particular gifts come to life.
I was able to re-connect with friends, build new friends and lose a friend as well. I was able to re-connect with my marriage, (that's right, my marriage) and look at it as something that is of value and not only something I was locked into.
I was able to define the destructive nature that I was accustomed to living, and not only living, but creating space for others to live in that lane as well. Now, I know that each person in life must choose life and their own destiny, however, for my peace sake, I had to acknowledge as well that I was not helping some people in finding a "positive" lane to drive through at all times.
And in the mixture of all of this.... Covid shows up. LOL! Who invited you to the party my friend? Who the hell told you that you had permission to show up and disrupt this world that we live in? Just who do you think you are Mr. and Mrs. Covid?
I was working a comfortable full-time job (well, it wasn't totally full-time), driving a school bus locally, I had what I thought was flexibility in my life to pursue some hobbies that I was involved in.... oh, that's right....I was kicked out of a church as well.... and by spite, I started a church. Now, I am not saying God didn't say to build a church, I Just wasn't supposed to build one that I was trying to please everyone around me by doing what I thought they wanted me to do. The vision from the beginning was, "House Churches", and I was going that route, then, something happened, and we were granted an opportunity to use a community center for church!
OMG, this must be God! So, there we go..... we get ready for the building, and BAM and I mean "BAM", yup, that's right..... The Rona! And in the midst of all of this....I finally buckle down and hire myself a coach... which has been amazing by the way.
Is your year similar? Have you lost some people, places and things?
I know, you're reading this and probably saying, "Dude, you are truly not uplifting my spirits." And you are absolutely right, I want you to understand that life happens, shift happens and we must continue to push through. No matter the risks that may come, we must stay focused on the greater good. We must set our minds on things above and not worry about what we are going to look like after the storm.
You will see my blogs more often my friend. I will share my life, thoughts, inspirations and challenges with you as I can, (because frankly, this is my blog, LOL) and I want to pursue what I started and complete it!
I hope in some way shape or form, I have inspired you in some way today.
And trust me, there is so much more that I have left out.... but some things just need to be left unsaid.
I Love You my friend, and if you've read this the whole way through, thank you for letting me vent today. If you have liked what you have read, hit that subscribe button so that you can be a part of my email list and I can bombard you with spam. Just Kidding. Have a blessed day my friend!
