Gifted Beyond the Darkness and the Storm

martinique-206916__180

There is no denying that you have been through too much! There is no denying that it has been too long, in fact, taken too long for the chains to be broken. There is no denial the inhumanity that has been dished and handed out. There is no denial the injustice that has flooded and buried way too many lives.  But you have come too far for only some of the chains to be broken! All the chains must be broken physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You are too gifted, too talented, too powerful, to allow only some of your chains to be broken! You want to take them all off! Some did it, so can you! You deserve it, you are worth it! You were created from the mind of divinity, with a divine purpose, not with chains!martin-luther-king-180477__180

You can choose,  you should choose, you must choose, to take the higher ground, for the sake of generations past, existing generations and generations to come. Taking the higher ground does not mean cowardice, or stupidity; no, it is power from within. It is Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence knowing that you have to preserve your strength and your power for what is ahead. It is courageous silence knowing that there is wisdom in waiting and planning and subduing oneself until the opportune time to express your intelligence, and execute purpose and destiny. It is Peace that you have more than what it takes to overcome the storm and raise the bar for generations to come! That, gifted one, is how you overcome the darkness and the storm.

It is Confidence that you are too gifted to waste your time on things that have no positive long term lasting effect! It is power to break every mental, spiritual, physical and emotional chain so that you do not react to everything and everyone to your own detriment, that of your loved one’s, and those looking up to you. It is Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence to preserve and build your dreams in the darkness and storm when you have been denied your humanity, because you know that you have been destined to raise the bar for millions, and to validate those who made the sacrifice.jackie-robinson-1172118__180

You are gifted beyond the storm and the darkness. Don’t turn in on yourself. Do away with the things that cause you to self-destruct. You are worth more than that. You have been sculpted, crafted and created for far too much. You are a finished work of power but you have to see that for yourself! Do not wreck yourself. Of what good are you then to yourself and to those who wait for, and need your power, intelligence and brilliance?

drugs-908533__180

Don’t turn in on your loved ones. Do not turn in on your community. Throw away the things that cause you to kill your own and leave you with nothing but aching emptiness, more rage, more pain! Is it worth it? Make it count! Make your mistakes, make the chains, make the inhumane way you have been treated count! Do not become anyone’s victim! It is not worth it, gifted one! Because you have too much to give. Don’t die with it and do not allow another to die with theirs. Uplift! Make the storm and darkness count! Use them as stepping stones! Use them to elevate yourself and others, and not destroy or take more lives! Build! Support! Empower!

Don’t look for the easy way out, dig in and dig very deep. Gold was not developed in a day. Gold does not wither. What is the positive lasting effect you want to leave? The answers lie within you. Your choices are yours to make. You, and only you, must decide which route you are going to take.Are you going to hate to the death, or are you going to love to your last breath? Which one is more empowering? Which one is more enriching? Am I telling you anything you do not already know? No, I don’t think so! But I am here to remind you, because sometimes when the storms rage and the darkness becomes too heavy, we forget who we are, we forget where we come from, we forget what we are made of, we forget those who went through for our sake, we forget that there is a generation coming behind us and we forget that we have to leave a firm foundation for them, so that their gifts can shine too!children-486980__180

Whether or not you believe it, whether or not some like it, or some do not like it, you were created with dignity, power, wisdom and strength, by the Master Builder, the Master Craftsman Himself. You also, not just some, breathe His breath. He did not leave anything out of you and He did not create you any less than another. He saw it fit to painstakingly create you gifted one. Do you see it? Can you see it? Do you see it now? You cannot afford to fade away, Divinity had you, and still has you in mind!

Stay and vibrate with the brilliance, gift, intelligence and power you have been given. Vibrate until you overcome the storm and the darkness. Vibrate until generations rise and are secure. Vibrate until you have established the peak that countless have given their lives for! Vibrate past the storm and the darkness, gifted one!

Vibrate gifted one! The storms and the darkness cannot defeat you, unless you give them permission to do so!

The Divine Pinnacle Option to Our Existence

sky-114446__340

Tired soul, exhausted spirit, stop! Breathe! Take a very deep breath! Pause and think for a moment! Think! There is another option! One that will bring you to the divine pinnacle of your existence.

What are you about to do? Are you about to take your life? Are you about to give in to depression? Are you about to succumb to sorrow, loneliness and sadness? Are trauma, heartbreak and disappointment about to sink you? Are you about to drown in drugs and vices that deplete your soul, mind and spirit? What are you about to do? There is another option!

There is a power and a breath that will give you the peace of mind and the courage that you seek. There is  a power and a breath that can take away the agony, that unbearable pain which keeps rising to the surface. There is a power and breath that will take you to the pinnacle of your existence. You work so hard. You try so hard. You apply yourself to everything you lay your hands on, yet your demons continue to plague you and chain you down. Have you not suffered enough? Are you aware that we are created with dunamis and that we have unlimited divine power when we tap into it? I would like to present dunamis to you. Take this option!

How does dunamis reside in us? How does it become triggered and activated in us? Well, it does not have to be recreated or reinvented, it simply needs to be discovered within. It is power already residing within us! We cannot borrow, buy, or steal it. We did not, and do not need to earn it. We can ignore it, remain unaware of it. There is nothing we have to do to acquire it, but simply look up to God who saw it fit to create us with it. Try this option!

Dunamis is the dormant power in us that becomes activated by the Breath of God, also known as the Holy Spirit or zoe. When we make that free-will choice to turn to our Source, God, dunamis becomes triggered within us through and by the Holy Spirit of God. Dunamis will not and cannot function to its fullest without the Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit gives us life, life given by God, through His breath, free for all, breathed by all. However, to reach the pinnacle of our existence we need to turn to God, ask for the Holy Spirit, who then empowers us with divine abilities by activating existing, dormant, untapped, unused, dunamis to its fullest.

Many have invented useful philosophies, technology, psychology and science to guide us. They have crafted and presented other life forms and mediums for us to worship, all in an attempt to be happy, to gain protection and security, and to be victorious, but many have not tried God’s zoe. I wonder why, when zoe is the very breath of God which gives us life to be alive, yet we do not want to acknowledge His existence.

You may appear to shine at everything, yet secretly you feel empty; demons plaguing you, secrets haunting you, emptiness and loneliness encompassing you, lies that torment you daily. Your soul is tired! Your façades and masks are weighing you down and making you disgusted with yourself. Your spirit is exhausted! When are you going to cry out to God to revitalize and set you free, in a way that only He can? How will you know if you do not try? Is that too much to ask for your precious soul? Is that too much to ask for your life? Is your image, how you look, your intellect, your philosophies, your science, your technology, or your need to impress others more valuable than your priceless soul? Don’t you want to go beyond just living and existing? Don’t you want to experience your life at its highest against all odds? Don’t you want to fight for your soul?

I hope you do, because dunamis and zoe are available to you, my brother, my sister, as your other option. It is entirely your choice.

 You are worth it that pinnacle of divine existence!

In a Place Where Only God Can Reach

 

shadow-185314__180

Hello, my fellow human being! How are you today? How are you dealing with that pain, rejection, abuse, and violation?

What are they turning you into? What are you becoming? Can you still find your beautiful self or are you lost in agony and depression? What is that shame that you carry? What is that guilt that you harbor? What is that anger and bitterness that are turning you into someone that you are not?

What is that darkness that torments you? What is that shame that makes you cringe? Who uttered those horrible words that still haunt you every day of your life?

Who violated and abused you and made you feel like nothing? Who trampled upon you and denied you your humanity? Who made you feel worthless? Who, what took away your confidence and left you ridden with insecurity, denying you your power to be your unique, amazing self?

What trauma are you suffering from? What are your demons? What tortures and torments you? Do you think that you are beyond deliverance now? Do you think that healing is beyond your grasp, that perhaps you are too damaged to be made whole again?

I don’t think so. God does not think so. I can attest to that, and I kid you not. If I am healed, you can be too. If I am whole, you can be too. If I can bear my scars and walk with my head up high, so can you! Make it happen!

I was given a real divine opportunity and I took it, because my pain and agony where beyond natural human powers. They were too raw. Rather than giving up on myself, I gave God a chance with my soul, mind and spirit, instead of depending on myself or human hands and hearts that could not comprehend my pain, and failed me. In the process I discovered that there really is a part of me that only God can reach.

I do not know how desperate you are to be whole but I would take the chance at God’s unconditional love. There is for real, a place in us, where only He can reach. I speak only from experience.

Try it. ASK. You won’t know if you don’t ask.

Using Our Greatness and Power to Show Kindness

statue-470190_1280

America, we are one nation under God and in God we trust. With this in mind, and with the privilege of being a world power, should we not show His great kindness, generosity, love and forgiveness to those who need us the most? After all, we are all God’s children.

The earth and everything it contains are the LORD’s. The world and all who live in it are his. -Psalm 24:1 (GODS WORD ® Translation)

In Dead Man Walking Sister Helen Prejean stressed that, “it is better to help ten real hurting people – or nine, or one, than to be overwhelmed and withdraw and do nothing.” In light of this, I would like to put a face to immigrants and ask us to use our greatness to demonstrate kindness.  Let us be benevolent with our greatness towards the pain, fear, nostalgia, agony, insecurity and embarrassment that immigrants suffer.

Immigrants have been misunderstood and vilified, but they are a source of enormous potential for our great nation.  They are not the cause of the world’s problems, or America’s problems. It is the thirst for power of others that leads many to flee from dangerous, destitute, undignified and life threatening situations in their own countries. Immigrants do not choose to be displaced from their homes, but the destructive and oppressive conditions which they are forced to live in uproots them to leave the agony that their countries of origin have become, to come to this beacon of hope called America. Would we not do the same?

My country of origin, Sierra Leone, suffered a brutal civil war. Hands, legs, of men, women and children were hacked off; young girls and women were gang raped. Our story is filled with horrors that no human being should ever have to endure. International diamond companies benefited from our spilled blood and agony, as international arms were exchanged for our national diamonds. Foreign nationals built their fortunes out of our misfortune. They built their dreams out of our nightmares. As a result many were displaced and were treated with repulsion, unaccepted and an inconvenience to and in foreign countries.

Immigrants come to the United States out of the necessity to escape grave danger, hunger and persecution. It is by far one of the most humiliating, belittling and degrading experiences one can undergo. Immigrants don’t come here to purposely abuse the American system and way of life. Men, women and children have come to this country because the alternative is death.  If you were faced with a decision to either come to America or to stay and have your daughter gang raped by militia, your son taken as a child soldier, your wife or husband mutilated and tortured to death, or to watch your malnourished baby slowly die, would you not risk everything you had, to find a safe haven for them? If that safe haven is America, would you not bring them here?

The primary goal of immigrants is not to take jobs, healthcare and education from Americans, no, it is simply to stay alive. Immigrants will do almost anything to arrive in America because of what we say we stand for – freedom, dignity, justice and opportunity. They want to contribute not just to America but to the world. Like every other human being, they have hopes and dreams too. They want to assist but their hands are tied. Many want to be a voice, but their voices are broken. They want to rise up and shine, but they are suppressed. They want to be assets not liabilities.

If America were to pass laws that will assist immigrants to live openly and not in hiding, restoring their hope and dignity, America will reap its kindness in unimaginable ways. This is America, and we have the greatness, the power and the gift to not only be kind to others, but to give them back their dignity and treat them as brothers and sisters.

Like Ghandi said, “One comes to appreciate that there can be no ‘we’s’, and ‘they’s’, but only brothers and sisters- all children of God – all sacred and dignified.”

Immigrants are not looking for pity, but the right to live as human beings. There are plenty brilliant immigrants, hardworking, well-meaning and respectful. Given the opportunity, they will continue to contribute positively to America, uplift her, and support her. They are proud and grateful to be here. They understand and know how beneficial it would be to be industrious, resourceful and productive in this great nation.

Unfortunately, and sadly, it seems as though we live in a culture that appears to view kindness as weakness, but it is not, it is power. We will reap what we sow; therefore, let us use our freedom and freewill to sow love, mercy, kindness, peace, forgiveness those who need us to live and thrive. I know we have to protect our nation, but let us also use our existence on God’s earth to give life to those who would otherwise suffer and die with all their God-given potential, a chance to flourish and prosper.  Do not allow fear to make us act or become like anyone else but our better self. At such a time as this America, let our kindness and compassion, not our fears and insecurities, shape our nation. Let us use our power to be just and kind. Let us be an example of fearlessly demonstrating unconditional love. A difficult thing to do, but not an impossibility.

“You are to have the same law for the foreigner and the native-born. I am the LORD your God.” -Leviticus 24:22 (NIV)

Indeed may God bless America and as He blesses us, may we in turn bless those who need us so desperately.

Kindness is NOT weakness! It is real power!

It is Your Job To Rise Up!

IT IS YOUR JOB TO RISE UP!

Every time you feel that urge, that kick, that nudge, and that yearning, to do something extraordinary, or more precisely, something that you know is being divinely inspired within you, what or who keeps you from acting on, or fulfilling that purpose and inspiration?

It is time for you to get into motion, it is time for you to move from where you are now, to where you ought to be tomorrow.  In order to make this happen, there must be movement on your part, not stagnation. You must formulate a plan, gather your tools, with zeal and passion! It is time to strategically place yourself to take off and take flight from where you are to where you are supposed to be. It’s time!

What tactics do you have in place? What type of people are you surrounded by, and what do they really do for your mind, soul, body and spirit? Will they pull you down, tell you it’s impossible, or will they build you and support you? What kind of energy are they emanating towards you? Will they assist you, can you trust them, can you share parts of your dream with them? Should you even mention it to them? Who can you work with to take your flight? Will they rejoice for you when it is your time to shine? Will they equip you with what you need to propel forward?

Fulfilling your dreams and purpose is a deliberate pattern with planning and timing. Every flight needs something turned on, something switched on. But every time you try to take your flight, there are things that plague you, pull you back and pull you down. Why not connect with God and see what power you are really made of? You might just be blown away and realize what you have been missing all these years!

“Strive to make the brave choice. Look at the root of the problems and troubles and torment raging within you. Take your eyes off what others are doing to you and focus on cleaning yourself up and growing beautifully.” ~The Reminder: Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence

Take flight from self inflicted abuse.

Take flight from violation and abuse at the hands of others.

Take flight from low self-worth.

Take flight from finger-pointing and blame.

Take flight from being a victim of others and your own self-destructive habits and behaviors.

Your time is here!  It is your job to rise up and take off!

Wait! Don’t Throw in That Towel!

Know That You Have Power!

We all need power. Not the kind that belittles and abuses others, and not the kind that idolizes the self, but the kind that builds us up and encourages us in a positive way. We need the type of power that brings healing and wisdom, encouraging us and transforming us into better people, empowering us to rise above every form of insecurity, hurt and pain. Empowered this way, we can in turn be a blessing to other people.  It is the type of power that says you don’t need fame, masks, facades, aggrandizement, or material wealth to be deemed successful. Rather, your success is in knowing who you are, loving yourself, finding your purpose, and soaring in it. 

Millions have sickness taking over them. Millions are putting on smiles that they do not feel in their heart, soul and spirit. Millions are carrying indescribable pain and heartbreak. Millions are sinking into darkness, too weak to fight back. Millions are becoming their own worst enemy as they seek ways to cope with their insecurities, tragedies, anger, bitterness and confusion. Millions are suffering from agonizing emptiness and loneliness.

What if I told you that there is One who sees and feels your torment? Would you test God’s kind of power for your own sake, for your own personal deliverance? Would you dare to cry out to Him and ask for help? Would you at least try just to ensure that you are not losing out? During my tangible and palpable moments with God, I remember feeling a sense of power rise up within me. It empowered me to keep pushing through, no matter what obstacle or challenge was presented to my emotional and traumatic state of mind. When trust had been broken, when I had been verbally, emotionally, physically and spiritually abused, and when many made me feel worthless, God’s power would not let me throw in the towel and die!

His power made me feel and know that I am valuable and precious. I felt, and still feel, that there has to be more to me, that my life is not a mistake, and that I am here for a purpose, for a reason. I felt that I was being gradually healed, that the anger, trauma, bitterness, prejudice, bias, stigma, and any feelings of guilt, shame, and worthlessness were peeled away. I learned not to limit myself to believing that all I have is my carnal human nature, but that there is divine power residing within me. 

I then realized that my soul, mind and spirit wanted, no, needed, a power that is consistent, strong enough for me to hold on to, wise enough to guide me through the storms, and anchored enough to see me through any darkness.

How about you? What do you want for your soul, mind, heart and spirit?

What Have You to Lose?

What Have You to Lose- (1)

So many of us want to be set free from our shackles, our vices, our insecurities, and the things that have taken over our lives and easily weigh us down, paralyzing us from fulfilling all our potential and from using our natural talents and abilities. Many of us want to love and be loved, filled with a surplus of joy and indescribable peace. Deep down we want to be rescued from our own self-destructive behaviors. We want to be set free from the damage caused by rejection, violation, stigma, prejudice, and put-downs that have been inflicted by the hands of others. We have tried so many avenues, and some appear to work for a while, but when we find ourselves searching again for the next new solution to our problems, troubles and torment.

Can we take on a love that knows exactly who we are really, and what we are really capable of? Can we handle the kind of unconditional love that knows the vices we hide in the dark, the rottenness that eats our souls, the ugliness and bad habits that lie within, the deceit and manipulation behind the lies that we wield, the anger, the bitterness, and the pain we have grown accustomed to? Knowing all this about us, God’s love still says to us, “What does it matter? I love you anyway.  Come let us spend time together. In fact let’s not stop there. Would you like to be delivered and healed from the burdens you carry?”

I don’t know how desperate you are to be whole, to have another chance in life, to be rid of whatever torments you and makes you shrivel when nobody is watching, but I would take the chance at that unconditional love. What have you gained by not accepting it?

God is so simple, so uncomplicated. He just wants to have a beautiful relationship with us, His creation. Yet we reject Him, and all that He has to offer to our precious souls. We tap into people around us, into family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances. We tap into drugs, our intellect, technology, our own devices, schemes, and human intelligence. We tap into anything and everything except the power that saw it fit to make us the unique, special, valuable and precious souls that we are. What have we to lose, if we were to tap into God’s unconditional love?

Do you need real assistance? Try God’s unconditional love, wisdom, power and deliverance!

What have you to lose?
