As she poured from her cup…..

“There is no envy, jealousy, or hatred between the different colors of the rainbow. And no fear either. Because each one exists to make the others’ love more beautiful.”
― Aberjhani,

colors

She never came empty handed her cup was always pouring…….

She knew she was creating a rainbow of colors all from different mixtures of life…..

She knew her rainbow would not just have the traditional colors so she was equipped to take a little of this and mix with a little of that to come up with the perfect colors…..

As she poured from her cup…..

She realized that some colors would be harder to blend and she didn’t want them to stand out so she added some softness of her tint and hue to it……

She took the petri dish and gently mixed the colors together so that one color would not outshine the other….

She added a dab of this and a dab of that because her goal was a beautifully blended rainbow that would reflect agape in the purest form

As she poured from her cup……

She knew in order for the rainbow to do what it was intended to do she had to let each color know you were chosen with a purpose and goal in mind

She knew that the beauty of the rainbow was better reflected when each color took its rightful place

We needed something to express our joy, our beauty, our power. And the rainbow did that.”

Black Journey

“The beautiful journey of today can only begin when we learn to let go of yesterday.”
― Steve Maraboli

I recently got a new vehicle and it is a black journey. I didn’t realize the significance of the vehicle until yesterday. My life has been a black journey up until this point because I would not let go of the past!  I was fearful out what was ahead so I clung to the known because it was safer.

I know the road ahead of me is so promising but fear strangles the life out of you and all your energy is spent trying to figure out how to keep going.

When I walked into the dealership I knew what I wanted and had everything picked out in my mind but something about this black journey just pulled me in. I didn’t want to test drive it because I knew it was just what I needed to get me to my next destination in life. The one thing that was holding me back was now getting ready to launch me into the journey of a life time. It gave me my freedom back!!!

Open your eyes…

“People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.”
― Paulo Coelho

Our mindset or intellect functions in one way and that is whatever way you are thinking. Often when someone else comes along with an idea your mind is closed because you are conditioned to think one way. “The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.” Malcolm Forbes

Well this is what this Election season was all about! It’s time to open our eyes and our minds! God is able to work through the unlearned things of this world. You have a candidate that is a business man who has never walked in the office of a politician as a President. Who clearly says the most off the wall things and have no clue on what to do however he was chosen. God uses whomever He wants to carry out His plan. God uses the foolish things of the world to conform the wise. In order to be used you have must be weak and low and for the next four years you will see a manifestation like never before. The outcome was not what I was praying for however God is still God!

PSA: The president is not in control of your life you are the commander in chief in your own home!

God will get the victory out of this because now our jaded mindsets will be shifted.  The world looks to worldly wisdom and a jaded mindset which leads them away from God. This mockery of an election is an opportunity to level the playing ground. I did not believe in either of the candidates and choosing the lesser of the two evils was the only option. However I believe that God can use anybody with a tainted past as long as their heart is willing. Having child-like faith is what help steer this election.

When people believe so strongly in what they know they can achieve they will stop at nothing to get it. Just like a child who wants a new bike they ask, they work, they ask again and do whatever they need to do to make sure they get what they want. I believe this man was foolish enough to believe anything could happen and it did. One thing he had over his component was that he had a teachable heart. His words were QUITE foolish and his sentiments were very rude and demeaning but he pierced the heart of people who believed just like he did. He gave people hope just like some people found in our current POTUS!

We have a divided country because people are straddling the fence with unwarranted opinions and hatred of the unknown. I will not live my life in fear of the unknown because of who is in the office because I know that God reigns. Just wait and see how God turns things in the favor of the believer. “but rather God has chosen that which is foolishness of the world to confound the wise, and God has chosen that which is the weakness of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty!” (1 Cor 1:27)  God works best through the unlearned things of the world because they have a willing heart to listen to instruction. The turn out was not what most people desired but God is not mocked so continue to watch as well as pray!
