This morning as I was preparing myself for a day which I knew I had so much to tackle, the word came and I couldn’t be more pleased.. See, when I have a lot on my mind, I sometimes zone out and daydream of a better world, a better place, a much better outcome!! I guess it started many years ago as a child and I recall getting in trouble in school especially because I was always zoning out and often times I believe that my teachers may have thought that I had an issue with attention or something like that..
Truth be told, I was frustrated with what was around me because I envisioned a better L.I.F.E, then confirmation came when I received a word from an older Jewish man whom shared that I would be somebody one day!! I will write out the entire scenario again and blog it, in the interim, I have the following that I had to share today..
See, Mr. A. told mii at the mere age of 12 maybe 13 that I would endure alot and I would be labeled as a “statistic” in the future and that I had the power within to overcome my trials and tribulations!! He also went on to say, if I educated myself and kept going forward NO matter what many doors would open and I would become whomever I wanted to be…….. By the time I was 15 my Guidance Counselor Mr. M. shared that I had enough high school credits to graduate by the time I was 16, but he gave mii the option of staying back and spending the year with my graduating class or going forward and skipping my Junior year of high school.. I thought about what that would mean and whether or NOT I had the ability to become someone, I stopped and wondered how I would be alone without any friends or relatives to make mii smile or piss mii off, I stopped for one more moment and recalled that I would be losing out on a whole lot because even at that age (15) I knew that opportunities did NOT come multiple times!! Though Mr. M. told mii to go home and think about my next step, I ran back to his office after taking a few steps into the hallway, headed towards the exit and said, “Please tell mii what I need to do to Graduate…..” The tears escaped their holding place and I recall my heart beating rather quickly as I made a decision that I could NOT take back!!
Today, I have gone through many ups and downs, I have had many strange battles to fight, I have been pushed to the max and back but friends, the thing I know to be true is if you are persistent you can and will make it!! The Word was soooooooooo powerful today that I couldn’t think about doing much more other than sharing it with you because NOT only have I studied to show myself approved (2 Timothy 2:15) but there are many of you who wonder whether studying, working hard, going forward towards the unknown is even worth it; I am here to share that it is.. Take a step in FAITH today (Hebrews 11:1, 1 Timothy 4:12, John 6:35), do what your heart tells you!!
I end here, I left the high school I was at only to return to the Christian private high school I had attempted to run away from a year or so earlier, under the teaching of a phenomenal teacher Mrs. S. who also happened to be a Pastors wife, I learned many lessons and though I had a long journey ahead of mii, I recalled certain Biblical principles she shared including but NOT limited to my favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 6: 10 – 20 and much more to this very day!!
Know this my friends and brethren, ALL is possible when you believe, I have a really impressive resume as I have accomplished many great things in my day, but I ask thee would I be able to share any of my accomplishments had I NOT Studied, Studied, Studied and also worked very hard……… Continue to follow your hearts, work hard and don’t forget to say a prayer or two every now and then..
Blessings to You ALL,
Your Sister in Christ
