Sometimes life throws you some phases in your life to learn or to just pass through them. It is up to you how you learn them. Everyone has something to offer other people it doesn't matter if you are the President of the United States or simply someone like me. It is up to you how you present yourselves to others. I am willing to present myself in a book of inspirational poetry, but I will leave that up to you if you want to read about my life and share it with another. My life hasn't always been a crystal stare. For there have been many phases in my time. I can also choose to keep my life to myself or share it with many. God so loved the world that he gave his begotten son If he can do it so can we or they, and you, and I.
My book is about God and how he raised me into what I am today. I didn't just wake up one morning and say I want to write a book. God simply prepared me for the gift that he gave me. My poetry of him and my longing for him only seemed real enough for me to understand until one day he began to give me words to say, and how to write them. Then I imagined myself allowing others to read about who I am. I guess you must be wondering who do I think I am saying all of this to you. Well, I am simply someone special according to God's eyes. I told God I wanted to be a light to shine for others to see. A light for him, created by him, for others to see. I guess you can say he granted my prayer. Most of my inspirational poetry I wrote was during church services we had at The Upper Room Greater Highway Church of Christ(Pastor Malachi Haines Sr.). While the other part of the book was written during my meditation on him.
There is one thing that I must confess, when you summit yourself in serving God. I mean really committing yourself to his will, you will never forget what he has brought you from. I can remember what I used to be and the mess that he delivered me from. I was once suicidal and deep in depression. The life that I had growing up wasn't my greatest moments in my time. Coming from an abusive family and thoughts of ending my life wasn't a walk in the park. When my oldest sister got injured while her friends were experimenting of how a gun worked, after it going off and hitting her in the head. Blood everywhere yet she stays lying there until help arrived. Not to mention she was holding my youngest sister in her arms when the incident happened. Well, my little life that I had known changed drastically. You could say I always had to make sure she was taken care of. Taking care of someone else had become a part of my life. I learned that it was okay to have that state of mind, as long as God was with me at all times. My youngest sister is only five years different from my age, but yet it seems a lifetime of responsibility that God has placed in me to do. Yet being over protective of her has brought she and I closer. Now that I have three beautiful children of my own the responsibility never really stopped. I will not regret and will not ever forget all that I have gone through for it has made me realize how fragile we are to God until he comes and delivers us all from what we have put ourselves through. Hopefully, like me, you must come to a point in your life and realize what must be done to cherish and keep the relationship going with Jesus Christ. You and I must do everything in our power to let nothing or anyone come between what you and I have between the Almighty God.
