Check In / What Am I Doing?

My friends support me, privately

Mostly in their hearts

My enemies rage against me, publicly

Using all the social platforms

I feel I’m inspiring lives

Obviously I’m creating barriers

I believe I’m building bridges

But the walls speak louder

The wall builders have every reason

To be angry with me because

I am building bridges with the tools

That could have been used to build walls

They are totally public yet highly rivalrous

But the question is what am I doing?

.

If I don’t know who I am

I would believe the obvious

Actually if I don’t know who’s I AM

I probably would have been lost

In the midst of the endless negativities I see

I found hope in timeless words I often don’t see

It is easier to tell someone how to calm a storm

When you have never witnessed a tempest

But when the wind is boisterous

You will almost forget that you are alive.

.

I am telling you someone’s story

Someone that’s dear to you

But you don’t know

Someone you know so well

But don’t know how they are doing

Someone that needs you

But you care less about their needs

Someone that needs your attention

But you think they have enough

Someone that’s living with you

But you don’t know how they’re living.

.

I need a little help from you

Just check in on your friends and family members

Even if they seem to be doing well

What you see outside, especially on social media

Is not really what is happening inside

And you checking in may just be

The difference between resting and taking a rest.

And you checking in may just be the difference between resting and taking a rest

This is the story of my high expectations from the people I respect. And how I allowed my disappointments and unmet expectations affect my service to God

We were working on something edifying

Something that bring glory to GOD

Before the success

We were all excited about what God is doing

Though we didn’t have much

We were very supportive of each other

We were celebrating the little things,

Milestones that we reach

And we were praising God for it

And we were trusting God for something better

We wanted to be able to reach thousands

For Jesus Christ

With his message of love, faith and hope

We wanted to be able to reach thousands for Christ. With his message of love, faith and hope

We keep sowing seeds mornings, afternoons, nights

Every opportunities we have

And like King Solomon advised (Ecclesiastes 11)

Spread your seeds everywhere

Because you don’t which God will bless.

Those that needed love killed love

Yet the love they killed keeps loving them

We shed the blood of love

Yet stains of the blood of love cleanse us

The love we did great injustice against

Keeps speaking mercy and justice for us

We break all laws, destroy images of love

Abuse the likenesses of love

Desecrate the institutions of love

Yet love gives us rest at night

And wakes us up in the morning.

BE

BE A REBEL!

Rebel against your excuses

BE A FIGHTER!

Fight against your fears

BE AN UNDERTAKER!

Bury your pasts that don’t inspire or challenge you

BE A FIERCE COMPETITOR!

Compete with the image you see in your mirror

BE HOPEFUL!

Be the hope you never had

BE A LEGEND!

Define your own path and create your own legacy

BE A LOVER!

Love is the only arsenal you can use to win all

BE A REWARDER!

Reward yourself for your hard work and excuse their ignorance

We Are Humans Too

We live in an overly sensitive world

In a very delicate moment in the history

Of and among fragile humanity

This calls for almost extreme thoughtfulness

In words

In deeds

In creativity

In expressions

And in endless lists

However,

We should all also realize that

We are all fallible people,

Made from the dust

We trample under feet daily,

And be willing to forgive

The wrong

When an offence is observed

Not necessarily for the offender

But for ourselves

For our souls

For our mental wellbeing

And for our future

We are still humans.
