Don’t Give Suicide Another Life

sun-flower-2936869__340

A friend reminded me that this is the time of year that many will take their own lives, and so I am writing to you in desperation. Do not allow suicide to take your life. Do not let suicide score with your life. You are too special. I am writing to the souls who are feeling suicidal. Please don’t. Please don’t do it. The darkness crowding in on you does not have to determine your future, your destiny, or your end. It may not feel like it at the moment, but you do have the power to conquer that. You have the power to overcome it. Believe it! You can have victory over suicide. You don’t have to go beautiful one, precious soul. Stay with the rest of us. Beat suicide and let your colors overwhelm the darkness.

It may not feel like it, this very moment, but there is a precious reason why you exist. There is a valuable reason why you are here. There is a worthy reason for your presence on this Earth. Your life, no matter what has been done to you, no matter what your choices have been, and where they have led you, is not a mistake. Please wait. Hold on. Hang in there. I don’t know who you are, but we are fighting for your life, your spirit, your soul and your mind right now. Stay, don’t give suicide another life. There is help!

When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your disability.” Luke 13:12 (ESV)

It may be extremely difficult to see, feel and comprehend it right now, in your current state of loneliness, rejection and feeling defeated, but there still is a light in you, and there is still purpose residing within you, waiting for you to tap into it and take off.

Don’t lose your power and give in. Have the courage to live. Have the courage to thrive. See yourself in a different light. Give yourself another chance, and dare to believe that you are more beautiful than how you feel right now. Breathe. Fight. Live. And there is One who can help.

And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. –Matthew 9:35 (ESV)

Precious friend, wonderful soul, if death is going to come, it will come in its own time. Don’t give in to suicide, don’t succumb to it because you are feeling worthless, dark and depressed, and feeling like you can no longer go on. Reach deep for the light within you. Reach for God who created you with more strength, more power and more love than you can ever imagine!

I know that life can be brutal, I know that it can be unjust, it can be a nightmare, and people can make you feel like you are not worth the life that you have been given. BUT THAT IS A LIE. There is a quality about you, there is a uniqueness about you, there is something which only you have, to give to this world, so live and give the world your gift.

Let your colors shine in the darkness! Don’t allow the darkness to take away your colors. Stay alive and overwhelm the darkness. Do not let it overwhelm you. Choose life!

This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life. 

Psalm 119:50 (ESV)

Don’t give suicide another life. Not yours.

A Journey of Self-discovery

Do not allow fear to make you become or act like anyone else but your better self.

Know that there is more to you than fear. Take a deep breath, have integrity and focus on recreating yourself and building yourself into Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence.

Quiet Power is not in the noise, the loudness, rudeness or meanness. It is not in the empty vessels and clanging cymbals making the loudest sound. Peaceful Confidence is the gift that comes when you purposely make the choice to point fingers at yourself and not at others and make a purposeful decision to work on your own inner person and outward character. That is personal integrity: when no one is watching, when you are not trying to impress anyone, are alone in your own quiet space, you make the decision to change within and outwardly do things for the better.

Get into the root of what you have become and make that change.

Remember that those tough, challenging moments are training grounds for you to see your weaknesses in character and in your personal integrity. They are here to urge you to take responsibility and make a change within.

The tough moments, if you allow them to do so, will shape you, anchor you and support you in making a decision to fix things in a way that will enhance your life and that of others.

The Stain and the Blueprint

All of us, at some point in our lives, have had some form and type of stain or the other. It could be a physical stain, a mental stain, an emotional stain, or a spiritual stain. The stain remains in our conscience. Some of us carry longer, deeper and darker stains than others, but a stain is a stain, and we need to get rid of it, so that it does not stop us from finding our purpose and building it. We don’t want to, and we should not, at all, give our stains, power to prevent and paralyze us from thriving and excelling in our unique, God-given purpose.

These stains come in all colors, shapes, sizes and types, and leave their horrendous marks on us.

  • Some were created knowingly, some were caused unknowingly.
  • Some were created by life happening.
  • Some were caused by life not happening.
  • Some were caused by past relationships and friendships.
  • Some were created and caused by family.
  • Some were caused by jobs.

There are two that are the worst kind, in my opinion. First, are the ones caused through personal trust and vulnerability, and second, the ones that make us beat ourselves up, “How could I have been so stupid?” The  violation took place with the speed of lightening, and we were unprepared for it.  There are those, perhaps the deepest, caused by the most trusted people, that we still hurt from, no matter what, and we wish it didn’t,  that it would just disappear. But it always becomes triggered by something or someone, no matter how deeply we try to bury it.

These stains appear to be never ending, persistent, and permanent , and make us feel like nauseating filth, filled with shame and guilt, weeping deep within, unable to reveal their ugly existence. They are stubborn, and they take their abode in the deepest parts of our beings, deeply rooting themselves in our hearts, minds, souls and spirit. They are usually created through mental, spiritual, verbal and physical abuse and violation by others, and are also, the consequences and effects of the bad decisions and mistakes we make in life. The question is, should we sit down and be a victim of these stains, or should we rise up and be more than conquerors, ridding ourselves from them?

Somewhere in the dungeons of our darkest pain, shame and guilt, we have to decide to restore our lives, our worth, our value and our self-dignity. Somewhere along the way we have to know that we have the right to live, thrive and excel. We have to wade through, and swim to the surface, away from the stains that we have suffered; some self-imposed, some people-imposed. We have to come to the realization that no matter who or what caused the stain, our role, is to get rid of it, and not give a whole lifetime to a thing that has no rightful place in our lives.

You know, my friend, my brother, my sister, my acquaintance, stranger, there is a way for us to gradually, slowly, thoroughly, properly and eventually clean up and be free of our stains.

The best way to do that is to find and build our divine purpose. We need divine assistance to do so. There is a divine plan beyond the stains; one that knows our past, present and future, and one that will lead us to a good end. This plan has a blueprint that has already taken into account what has happened to us, the price we are paying for the stain it’s left within us, and what kind of future lies ahead of us, if we choose to, or not choose to, get rid of the stain, and follow divine purpose. It will strengthen us to conquer these seemingly unshakable stains, and give us the power, courage and wisdom to carry out our divine purpose and blueprint.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” –  Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Yes, Be That Odd Ball!

It is okay to push through and make your dreams come true. What are you waiting for? Time? It waits for no one. People? Well, you cannot please every body. Do you have a dream? Do you have a passion?  What is stopping you? Are you afraid of looking like that odd ball? I say you should not be! I say, go for it!

Push through! Push out! Push forward! Push ahead! Go on!

We need a dynamite and dynamic jolt! We need that jolt that only someone who genuinely loves us can give us, so we can arise from these shallow, sandy, untrustworthy muddy and undependable foundations we have built for ourselves. We need a plan, one that is dependable, and I propose one where we are not using our own wisdom and strength, but instead the foolishness and weakness of God.

For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. ~ 1 Corinthians. 1:25 (NIV)

Maybe you are reading this today, trying to decide whether to have enough faith to flip the switch on, to ignite the engine to your destiny. Maybe you have already tried, but your wings are still down, and you just cannot find the power or guts to lift and spread them, flap them, and take off. Maybe you once did take off, but something or someone cut you off mid air, and you just need some encouragement to take the next steps. Maybe you have taken the next steps, but you just need power from within to take flight into your victory! Maybe you need a type of power that supersedes any that you have ever known. After all, you have tried many others! Now you need something different, something that actually works and actually lasts, unchanging, consistent, and beyond your imagination and intellect.

No matter where you stand now, I am here to remind you that you are worth it, you are valuable, and you are precious. Your life is worth more than putting on a mask, putting on a show, fitting in, and making impressions. Your life is so much more valuable than the traumas you have been through. You are so much more than all that, and you are so much better than all that; they should not define you or keep you boxed in and trapped!

So push, flap, and speed and soar into your purpose and destiny! Let hope be your fuel and faith be your power!  With all your guilt, insecurities, shame, imperfections, mistakes, with all the maltreatment and violation you have undergone, you are still worth it, still precious. God knows that! You must believe that!

Drop the mask, drop the façades, and drop the shame. Let the barriers in your heart and spirit crumble and wither to nothingness, and be rendered powerless over you, because you are still mighty! You have unrevealed, uncommon, untapped power, but you are just too scared or too ashamed to delve into it. But you can drop those weights keeping you down and push through.

Drop them now, push through and make your dreams come true! Yes, be that odd ball!

Stop holding yourself back!

Your Gift of Personal Truth and Personal Freedom

In your journey to believing in yourself and who you are, have your own tangible experience about yourself. In your journey to loving yourself, have the courage to look in the mirror to see who you have really become. Is that who you truly are? Or is there a greater and better you? Are you able to face what the mirror is telling you? Can you accept that truth and keep what is to be kept, and do away with what needs to be done away with? It’s very hard, it’s very painful, I know. I have had my own, still having my own, tangible experience in dealing with what I have become and who I should become. But the knowledge of knowing that I am better is powerful; in the truest sense!

So who should you become? Give yourself the gift of personal truth. Don’t be superficial, be very honest, genuine and authentic about it.   

“Your goal here is to to develop a strong, solid foundation for your heart, soul, spirit and mind.” ~The Reminder: Your Personal Workbook and Journal for Success

Do not shy away from yourself. It’s okay, it’s just you and yourself, nobody else is watching. This is your personal moment of truth. In order to set yourself free, you must be honest with yourself.

“It is very important that you know for yourself, how valuable and precious you truly are. Stop waiting for external affirmation and love, instead, allow your inner self-affirmation to give you real self-confidence. Others can only do so much for you. At the end of the day, it is in your own hands to become the best that you can ever be. ”  ~The Reminder: Your Personal Workbook and Journal for Success

At the end of the day you make the choices and decisions which you have to live with. So cry and scream if you must, even get angry, but no pity party here! Face yourself! Do not be a victim, do not blame, do not point fingers, but instead, hold yourself accountable. Yes, I know, it is very difficult, but refuse to become a victim of your past mistakes or of any maltreatment that you have suffered in the hands of other people. The primary goal here is for you to set yourself free!

“You have the power to do so yourself by looking inward and making that determined decision to turn your life around. The goal here is to assist you in facing your pain and refusing to allow it to consume you.” ~The Reminder: Your Personal Workbook and Journal for Success

Look in the mirror and ask yourself:

  • Who am I?
  • Who have I become?
  • Why do I do what I do?
  • Why do I make the choices I make?
  • Are they what I really want for my life?
  • Are they really what I want to do and who I want to be?
  • Am I where I want to be?
  • If not, what am I going to do about it?

“How can you possibly make the right decisions for your life, if you do not know who you truly are? It is one thing to think you know who you are, but it is entirely another to actually know who you are!”  ~The Reminder: Your Personal Workbook and Journal for Success

Have your moment of honesty, make your own determined decisions and choices, and live your own tangible experiences in life. Find out, figure out, who you really should be. Find purpose. You deserve that! Give yourself that gift!

Do Not Become a Tragedy!

You have power! You can cry, yes, but you have power. You have been put down, but you have power. You have been violated in more ways than one, many times over, but you have power. Downtrodden, but you have power. Messed up, feeling guilty and ashamed, but you have power. You’ve been stigmatized, abused, maltreated, dismissed, mocked, and left for dead, but you have power! You are not a tragedy! 

We have power. The problem is that we do not tap into that power. Some of us have no knowledge of it. We do not seek it. It is lying dormant in us every day. We have access to it. We are looking for power somewhere out there, yet there is power that resides within us, unknown, ignored and unused.

I believe that the living God is our Source and that He has put everything in us to excel in our own unique way, our own unique place, in our own unique time. We were created and born to do so. We have the right to do so. Every human being has the right to do so. Every human being has power built within to do so.

But there is a wound, an insecurity, that stops you, from tapping into and exercising that power. And so you have put on the masks, the facades and the impressions and now you do not know what you really stand for.  And so now you take it out on others and you crave another type of power that thirsts for recognition and titles, and thrives on ego centrism, self-worship, self-aggrandizement and idolatry. Losing your beautiful self in all that is a tragedy in itself.

“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.

Let your life be beautiful and NOT tragic. You can do this! You have power to conquer your demons and wounds! Dig deep and fight to reflect the beauty within you. 

“Do not allow fear to make you become or act like anyone else but your better self.” ~The Reminder: Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence

“Your life is worth more than the putting on a mask, putting on a show, fitting in, and making impressions. Your life is so much more valuable than the traumas you have been through. You are so much more than all that, and you are so much better than that; they should not define you or keep you boxed in and trapped.” ~Dunamis: Untapped, Uncommon Power

You are not a tragedy, refuse to become one!

Power to Let Go and Take Off!

 

Photo by Eva Beer on Pexels.com

We are looking for power somewhere out there, yet there is power that resides within us, unknown, ignored, unexamined, and unused. There is innate power within us to take off from and leave behind all that holds and weighs us down! But we tap into everything else, except this power. We tap into people around us, into family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances and the latest trends. We tap into drugs, technology, our own devices, schemes, and human intelligence. We tap into anything and everything except the power that saw fit to make us the unique, special, valuable, and precious souls we are. I do not know about you, but I found the things and people I tapped into to be lacking, limiting, and limited!

I blame no one. People can only do so much. We are all limited some way or the other.  But I just needed something deeper and more meaningful in order to find that inner peace, wisdom, faith, purpose and power to maximize my potentials. I needed something, someone that was unlimited and non-superficial. As for me, I found it in the One, and still find it in Him. This One I talk about is the living God.

Let me ask you:

  • Who or what is the weight that is holding you back from taking off into your purpose and destiny?
  • Who or what do you turn to for healing from your deep emotional, mental and spiritual pain?
  • Who or What do you turn to when you feel completely lost?
  • Who or what do you depend upon for self-worth, self-respect and self-dignity?
  • Who and what do you turn to find your purpose and soar with it?

Who or what is standing in your way, pulling you down and holding you back? Do you need power to let go and take off? As humans, we are usually afraid of what we do not know. Many of us have been fooled, tricked, and lied to, and this has made us downcast and disenchanted. But let me boldly submit to you that I believe that we are created with incredible power and divine ability called dunamis. I believe that we carry dunamis within us but we have not exercised this power either out of ignorance and we do not know of its existence, or because we continually reject the One who created us and installed dunamis within us, thus only He can trigger and cultivate it in us. He needs our cooperation to do so, but we either deny His existence, or we know He exists but we decide that we do not need Him in order to thrive and rise above the ordinary and the things that keep us emotionally, mentally and spiritually trapped and damaged.

My take is that dunamis is miraculous power beyond our imagination, but not impossible to attain and live by.  Dunamis is stunning and potent. That is why it appears unattainable! It truly is unattainable through our human strength, wisdom, or knowledge, but highly attainable through God’s divine direction, courage, boldness and wisdom. I do not know about you, but I found the things and people I tapped into to be lacking, limiting, and limited! I blame no one. People can only do so much. I just needed something deeper and more meaningful in order to find that inner peace and purpose. As for me, I found it in the living God, and still find it in Him. What and who do you tap into? Is it really working for you and making you whole?

I want people to know that yes, we can cry, but we have power! We have been put down, but we have power! We have been violated in more ways than one, many times over, but we have power! Downtrodden, but we have power! Messed up, feeling guilty and ashamed, but we have power! We’ve been stigmatized, abused, maltreated, dismissed, mocked, and left for dead, but we have power. We are depressed and suicidal but we have power! The problem is that we have not tapped into it. We have no knowledge of it. We do not seek it. It is lying dormant in us every day, we have absolute access to it, but we will do not acknowledge its Source, the living God.

This living God and power I am telling you about are no lie, no gimmick. Why don’t you do the research yourself, investigate, find out, and explore for yourself. You do not have to believe me at all [in fact, feel free to think I am crazy].  Challenge yourself to take the step to do the research. I would be interested in your findings and your conclusions. Genuinely search deeply, dig deep, and do your legwork, don’t be dismissive about this life-giving power.

Find out about God’s existence, and the manner in which He has divinely built, crafted and created us. It is unfathomable by the ordinary human eye. Our carnal state cannot comprehend it. But if we tap into God we will find it, and we will know how to excel and soar with it. What harm would it do you to ask if God is real and if indeed you are created with such immeasurable divine power?

The choice is, and always will be yours to tap into God and dunamis, or not.  We can laugh about it, mock it, deny its existence, or realize and understand that there is real, genuine power within us, and it comes from Him.

Why don’t you find out about the divine power that you are really made of and fulfill your purpose?

That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

– 1 Corinthians 2:5 (ESV)

The One Who Understands Your Torment

 

underground-885206__180

What if I told you that there is one who is indescribable, one who cannot be defined by words, one who understands your torment? This One who already knows your agony, sees your desperation, feels your silent tears, and would like to reach you with the kind of uncommon power and unconditional love, where no one else can reach or touch you. What if this one can bring personal deliverance to your life. This ‘one’ I talk about is the living God.

This is not about religion, but about restorative power, healing power, reconstructive power, and power to do what appears to be the impossible. We have tried everything else, so why not this living God?

There is an indescribable pain, loneliness, and emptiness you carry, and you don’t know where or how to offload it. What if He is the One you really need right now?

Would you try Him? Would you test His kind of power for your own sake, for your own personal deliverance? Would you dare to cry out to Him and ask for help?

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. 

-Isaiah 40-29-31(ESV)

Would you at least try, just so that you have covered all sides and tried everything before concluding that God does not exist or that He cannot possibly be the solution, the answer, the relief that you are so desperately looking for? Would you dare to be set free?

Would you dare to tap into uncommon power that will help to lift you up, to flap your wings, take off, and take flight?

The choice is entirely yours, the decision absolutely yours to make. Wouldn’t we rather find out whether or not this power is for us, useful to us, and supportive of us? Try Him out, don’t dismiss Him. This might be your chance for healing, the healing that you know long for!

The God of the Bible. His power is something which millions have tested and tried all around the world, and have come to know its truth and its reality. Are we all crazy, or is there something we have experienced, something undeniable, something tangible? We know the divine presence we felt, and we have experienced and witnessed the reality and truth of the healing, delivering, and redemptive power of God. We just cannot deny that God is real, even if, for some reason, we were to walk away from Him. Not after what we know!

This is undeniable power that will not allow us to wallow in self-pity. It is indescribable power that sees us as majestic and royal, even when others belittle us. It is power beyond comprehension, that turns our ugliness into shining beauty. It is unstoppable power that lifts us out of dungeons of darkness, misery, and pain. It is compassionate power that washes sadness, misery, and depression away. It is power that breaks us away from chains and weights that keep us down. It is power that sets us free on a runway that propels us to take flight into our purpose and destiny, regardless of our circumstances and beyond our imagination.

It is the power of the living God that understands your torment and brings you healing and restoration, not religion.

For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.

-1 Corinthians 4:20 (ESV)

Is Your Ship Slowly Sinking?

Photo by Kamille Sampaio on Pexels.com

Is your ship slowly sinking? There is more to people than meets the eye. I truly believe that we have been created with divine power and abilities. I strongly believe that we were created with innate power, strength, and skills which we have not tapped into, but merely scraped the surface. I believe that we have been created and endowed with many gifts and talents, as well as tremendous power, and that we are supposed to be divine masterpieces, created only by God. I also believe, and know, that I have had snippets of divine experiences that have brought me to that undeniable, tangible truth, truth that we possess not just amazing talents, but inexplicable power residing within us.

I am curious about this power. Shouldn’t you be? I have had glimpses of it, I have experienced such power, and I feel a sense of responsibility to write about this truth. It is an honor to write and tell you about it, with the goal that we all know that we can all experience the reality and the truth about the living God. I believe that we should share this knowledge that can and will liberate us and others from their pain, trauma, depression, and any other form or type of bondage. I believe that I have discovered a true power that can free us, that is uncommon and untapped, and that many are ignorant about, and I cannot possibly keep it to myself!

Is your ship slowly sinking? So many of us want to be set free from our shackles, our vices, our insecurities, and the things that easily weigh us down, paralyzing us from fulfilling all our potential and using our 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 even appear to work for a while, but then we find ourselves searching again for the next new solution to our problems. I would like to share with you a consistent power, one that you already possess and carry within you.

  • Is your ship slowly sinking?
  • Have you become your worst enemy?
  • Can you stop the sickness taking you over?
  • Do you need power to do so?
  • Do you need a savior who will take you over the walls and heal your pain?
  • Do you need someone who will not let you go, but will fight for your life?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

-John 3:16-17

Divinely Created Beyond a Theory?

beautiful bloom blooming blossom
Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

We always ask whether or not we should believe in the existence of God, but do we ever ask whether or not God believes in us? Is it possible that no matter what we feel or think about Him, God loves us so much that whether or not we believe in Him, whether or not anybody believes in us, and even if we don’t believe in ourselves, He does?

Despite what we have been told, what we have been taught, and what evil people have done in His name, I do not believe that He is so insecure and controlling, needing to criticize, punish, and judge us at every turn, or scheming to slice us into pieces and beat us into a condemned pulp. No, He wants us to use the indescribable power He has generously created within us to elevate ourselves and take flight into our purpose and destiny. He basks in our successes! He glories in our victories, and rejoices in our deliverance, and hurts when we hurt.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10 (ESV)

I believe that God created us, that we are His divine products, so of course He believes in us, because  when He created us, He did not leave us hanging. He put everything we will ever need to succeed, right inside of us but we have to tune Him in. This way, we can live a life of dominion over the demons, the vices, heartbreak, depression, tragedies, trauma and discouragement that torment, entrap and imprison us. They have weakened and impeded us, and most of us have succumbed to their weight, darkness and misery.

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. -Hebrews 11:3 (ESV)

Think about it this way. Manufacturers create products all the time, with all the correct and necessary parts, and confidently promote and sell these products. These products are just things, perishable, material things that come with guarantees, but also warranties and disclaimers. Wow! But we believe them, we believe in the products, and we pay to acquire them. If we can believe in products made by humanity, knowing that they are not flawless, how much more should we believe in a God who declares that He has created us fearfully and wonderfully! Should we not allow the power of this God to enter our spirits, and allow His glory to light our way so we can take off, not from the ordinary man-made path of life, but from His extraordinary divine power, assisting us in taking flight into meaningful purpose and a sure destiny?

What would life be like if we let His faith in us be our heartbeat? What if we tested Him out and we saw ourselves through His eyes and through His blueprint for each of us? What if we allowed His hope for us, His faith in us, be our fuel to be the best that we can ever be, maximizing every potential? What could be so bad about believing in such a God? What is it that is so hateful about Him who gives life, who shows us a way when situations become terrifying, tough, difficult to endure, and seemingly impossible? What is it about us that is turned off by a God who does not want us to give up on ourselves?

Maybe we are afraid to believe that He exists and maybe we cannot fathom that such a divine being actually believes in us, because in our limited human capacity we cannot contain that belief, because all we see are our imperfections, our fears, anxieties, anger and depression.  Maybe we are unable to process the thought that God believes in us? Maybe we are incapable of seeing how precious, valuable and priceless we are in His eyes.

Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. -Genesis 2:7 (ESV)

Is our limited human and carnal nature all we are or is there more to us?

Wouldn’t it be wise to investigate and explore if we are indeed divinely created and therefore born with such life-giving, life-empowering, problem-conquering, victorious-living power? It’s always our choice to do the research.

I don’t believe that we are mere theories and guinea pigs to and of science and intellect.  I believe that we are created way beyond that. We have evolved in so many ways than one, but it does not remove the truth that we are created by God.

Maybe its time for you to find out!
