Rise, Take Up Your Bed and Walk

Today I declare it. I declare that we shall, “RISE, TAKE UP OUR BED AND WALK.” Just as the son of God had told the impotent man (John 5:7,8).

At some point you must get tired of being tired, but that doesn’t mean give up or throw in the towel. It means you are ready for change. Tired of being broke, working pay check to pay check, tired of not being healed, hurting every morning when you wake up, tired of frustration, due to the cares of this world, tired of being held back. Well, I’m over it, we are over it. It’s time to move, it’s time to rise.

The How

My thoughts shall change to positive thoughts. Every negative thing that happens to me, I shall see it for my good. I’m done being stuck. It’s time to move, it’s time to grow, mentally, spiritually, and financially. I’m over the hurt, it’s time for happiness, it’s time for growth, I Will Prosper. We Will Prosper. I will make it, just as the impotent man was healed from his infirmity after thirty and eight years (John 5:5). I will keep the faith, rise and take up my bed, my baggage, and walk. Again, I Will Prosper! I will move, I will encourage myself, I will be bold, I will be strong, I will walk to my freedom, from hurt, from strife, and from stress. To a life of freedom, happiness, and greatness, because I will, “RISE, TAKE UP MY BED AND WALK!”

BE BLESSED.

Running Into A Burning Building

 

Why,

why do I keep running into this burning building. I know it’s hot, I know it’s dangerous, and it’s pure insanity. Every time I run in I get hurt, I feel betrayed, I lose love, I am along. At this point my mind is in a severely disordered state of mind (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). I’m lost. I keep running back into this fire because I’m trying to fill a void. I feel empty, hollow. If I turn to drugs, alcohol, or people, I can pretend for a little while that I’m secure, the void is gone, I’m not lost, I do have it together and I’m not losing control. I can’t keep running into this building. At some point it’s going to fall on me. I’m tired of these sores. I wake up, and hate I ran into the fire, it burned. It continues to burn worse each time I go in. This time it cost me my freedom, next time it may cost me my life.

My Serenity

I’m tired, I can’t keep running. I’m done but I don’t know how to stop running into the fire. I’m surrounded by fire; negative talk, negative actions, negative thoughts. Heck, “I can’t see the forest for the trees,” Nicholas Sparks. I can’t see the rainbow in the mist of all this rain, but I want to so bad. All I have is this little book some old man gave me on a store parking lot, The New Testament. So, I guess I’ll flip through it. Well, check this out,

“Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart.” “And you will find rest for your souls.” “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Mathew 11:28-30)

A Journey to Success- I Figured It Out

Success, according to Webster’s dictionary, is degree or measure of succeeding, favorable or desired outcome; also, the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence. So, the bible says, “So a man thinketh so is he.” Proverbs 23:7 part A.  Also, James Allen wrote a book As a Man Thinketh, this is a very good book to read to begin transforming your mind to living a rich and healthy life. You see everyone at some point think about success, some for a moment and others their entire life. So, I figured it out.

I Figured It Out

First, I had to know the definition of Success, but not what others think of me and not what others think success is. As I look at my life as an outward person looking in, I look successful. I have a great home, lovely job, and I have it together. The only thing, I myself, still want more. Therefore, in my own eyes I am not successful, but on the road to becoming successful.  After listening to Les Brown, a motivational speaker, I realized “when you stop dreaming, you stop living.” Guys quite frankly, for me, I feel that I just started living, there’s so much more that Yah, (God- Ps 68: 4) has in store for me. I am outgrowing my beautiful home, my great job, my life as everyone looking in has seen it. I am now beginning to live, to enjoy my life, to make moves in a different direction than before. I am beginning to become what YHWH always had in store for me. I am becoming the word itself, “I am success, not a success.” I leave this with you: You Become What You Think therefore start thinking a more excellent way. 1 Corinthians 12:31.
