I thank the Lord for all he has brought me threw. It is only by his grace and mercy that so many things have transpired in my life. For the things that didn't work out or go right I am also thankful. I put my all into what I do. And I am thankful that some things I put me into worked and others didn't work. I have suffered heart ache but it didn't break me. I have suffered lost and didn't lose me.
striving towards that purpose filled life!!!
We live in a time when things are happening that we would never had imagined in yesteryear. Even though our youth don't see it there was actually a time when blacks stuck together. There were generations of family living in the same house. We had neighbors who we called friend. We went places together. We worshiped together and had fellowship. We used to commute five deep to one car. If we worked together on a job we worked together. Never in my lifetime would I ever had imagined that things would progress to a point where people killed one another and couldn't speak much less work together. I pray all people learn to love one another because life on earth is a temporary assignment. I am trying to fulfill the prerequisites for my permanent home.
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbors and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Matthew 5:43-48 (NIV)
