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!

Where’s Thomas?????

“You can decorate absence however you want- but you’re still gonna feel what’s missing.”

doubting

No one knew I was looking

No one knew I was listening

No one knew, I knew exactly where you were and that you knew where I was but you never came

No one knew I cried for what was not there

No one knew that I had a real life doubting Thomas in my life

No one knew I lost all trust in people because of you

No one knew I secretly envied every relationship other kids had with their fathers

No one knew that I allowed others to love me but I could not give them the same in the return

No one knew when I turned 16 I finally saw your face and I couldn’t allow myself to even look you in your eyes

No one knew my life altered when you told me that you loved me and I cringed even listening to your voice

No one knew that every phone call after that didn’t make it easier I still doubted every one of your words and actions

No one knew that when I got the phone call that you had passed away that I said to myself maybe he can finally rest peacefully

No one knew as the casket closed you took a portion of my heart with you

No one knew that I spent my whole life trying to fill the void of your absence with being everything for everybody until it was no more of me left to GIVE

No one knew I did it because I didn’t want any person to ever feel how I felt so it was easy for people to use me because I had picked up your doubting bloodline

I DOUBTED

I was ever good enough

Pretty enough

Perfect enough

Smart enough

Worthy enough

Until ten years ago my heavenly Father knew it was time to get rid of the doubting bloodline

It took a minute because breaking generational curses through bloodlines can be challenging to let go until you find it in yourself wanting a change..

I am no longer a bastard because I have a Dad…my bloodline has changed!

My inheritance is greater than I could have ever imaged

Your absence had me missing out on what God has given to me for this season of my life

So your daughter is no longer doubting but a true believer that God can do it anything even fill the void of a fatherless child

Joy

“Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God.”
― Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

joy

As she sat with her head bowed for so many years

Something inside of her was still allowing her to rise each day

Slowly her head began to rise and the twinkle returned to her eyes

From the depths of her soul

Arose the biggest smile

Because the joy that was once 

Lost could now be found

Because she realized that God was there all the time!
