It’s been 9months since the injury that rocked my world. What I have been through this past 9 months in my life is something that I can only thank god for getting me through. Have I been perfect??? NO. Have I had all sunny days and no cloudy and rainy days??? NO..... Have I had Faith??? YES...
When you think of Faith what comes to your mind? Take a moment and think about the things you have faith in the most. When I did that I thought about my faith I have in my athletic abilities, the faith I have in my relationships with certain people, but ultimately I think about the Faith that I have in GOD.
It’s been a long road for me to develop a strong faith in god. Just being honest I was the guy who always ask why don’t I have this and why haven’t I done that. I was never grateful for the small victories that god had granted me. It took some humbling to be able to open my eyes and not only see but to appreciate how I got to where I am and why I am where I am today.
I was guilty of always wanting MORE but not really having justification of why I wanted more. I heard a testimony from a person I didn’t know it and helped put things into perspective for me he said that he was in class and his professor was talking. She began to go off on a rant about who she was saying “ I’m married but I got divorced and now I am a lesbian, I have a Mercedes an Audi, and a BMW, I have several homes, I have multiple degrees.” ˙e had more in this testimony but it spoke to me after she said all of that stuff. Everything she said she had I want. I want it and I was on a path to get it whatever way I could. But I realized that if tomorrow you give me the car of my dreams I am not going to be satisfied, I will only want a bigger house to park it at. Basically what I am saying is that I was always going to want more things in my life that were going to satisfy my flesh. I mean think about it, who doesn’t like to be “That” guy or girl? Everybody wants to be a “Boss” these days. Not that wanting more and better for you is bad at all. I learned that it’s the way in which you want it and how you plan to use whatever it is that you want to better the world around you and most importantly how you will use whatever god gives you to help uplift him. At that point I realized that I should just surrender myself to god fully and that I should have Faith in what he is doing in my life. It hard to really follow the saying “let go and let god” but it’s something that I really have bee trying to do. The point of this blog was to just encourage you to have faith in the one true important thing in this world. Your relationship with the big guy upstairs. I promise it has been refreshing for me and though I continue to stumble in my walk with him I know that he has me and that no matter what I am covered by his grace. When you feeling down and in a valley and it seems like you cant seem to escape the ills of the world just have FAITH that he will see you through it. And remember to P.U.S.H Pray Until Something Happens.
And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you.
