It’s been a minute hasn’t it been, but there you were in my dreams again tip toeing into my subconscious when I thought I had forgotten all about you. I’m not going to lie seeing you again brought a smile to my face, all the good memories we created together flooding my mind. It’s funny now to think there was a time that the thought of you and I, what we were and how that is no more made me sad. But that time has passed, I’m so much stronger now. Aware now of all the love that had always been afforded me by so many. To finally understand that the love of the Lord is stronger than any love I could ever desire. I’ve learned to embrace myself, to love myself. So yes now the memory of the happy times between us, and there were some damn good times, makes me smile for I accept now they were an essential part of the journey I’ve been on to being the person I am today. Goodbye for now it was nice seeing you again and I hope you have found the happiness that you were a part of in me finding mine.
Ponder this fellow Christians can we really say we are followers of Christ when:
We embrace the immorality of our so called leaders.
Promote racial intolerance.
Turn our backs to the atrocities happening to others simply because they were born in another part of the world.
Let the poor starve.
Let the sick suffer.
Teach our children hate and division instead of love and unity.
All in the name of our own so called “comfort”
The answer should be crystal clear.
The answer is no we cannot.
To follow Christ is not simply to recite the scriptures but to open your heart and actively follow the teachings of the Lord, even if it causes us a little discomfort now and then.
When I look into the mirror of my soul and am brutally honest with myself I see flaws. Imperfections that annoy some people. But here’s the thing, not one of us is perfect and if the whole of ourselves is righteous and kind then at the end of the day we’re ok. Of course I strive to better myself each day but fundamentally I am who I am and I’m happy with that. If you choose to accept who I am join me on my journey if not I wish you good luck on yours.
