It’s been 23 days since I’ve put pen to paper and truth be told it’s because the spirit of wisdom and writing was void for a moment in my life as I continue to battle my own personal transitions an sought clarity to relieve the burdens in my trajectory. As humans we all face times of uncertainty, disillusion and disheartenment. There are many instances in life that can emotionally and physical give us setbacks and steal our joy. However, the key to handling the baggage, burdens and disillusions is to find a place of solace. A place to safely unwind, where you can be at peace with yourself and the afflictions that are weighing you down.
Every day is another day that allows us to make things better for our existence. Every day is another day that the essence of our humanity is stretched beyond our healthy core. What helps me in times of trouble is the spirit of courage, to never give up, to learn valuable lessons while giving a lesson in the process. By holding the hands of those that follow this blog and allowing your comments an expression of encouragement to nurture and continual strengthen my passion and personal devotion to conscientious and purposeful living.
Over the years I’ve made worthy deposits into my life with things such as virtue, commitment, accountability, diligence, respect, and above all my trust and faith in God. What I now know when it comes to personal baggage, burdens and disillusion is that there are no shortcuts to relief and recovery. We must do the work to keep ourselves on track, focused and healthy. Life is about living and living graciously. Life is not promised to be burden free but it is graciously gifted for you to construct a solid foundation that can survive any storm. Sometimes we must empower ourselves and tow our own lifeline to persevere when you have no one to trust with your experiences or secrets.
Humans are amazing warriors and although our arms are two short to box with God he has given us a voice to call his name when we are in need of assistance. Allow me to say to you that wounds of the heart, flesh and soul can and will stagnate you! Drop your baggage, burdens, disillusions and maltreatment of any kind where you stand and propel yourself to a healthier, wiser better you.
Lift your eyes to the hills from which your help and strength comes (Psalm 121). May the spirit of God continue to guide and protect you. Release the toxicities in your life today, whether they be friends, family, relationships or careers.
Empower you for you empower me.
