Whoa!! What if you realize your death filled thoughts a mirage? Like a Hollywood Movie set… You get close enough and you will push it down with your hand. Go look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself, “Today is my new day and this is not taking me down.” #life #suicide #unitedstates #authorsofinstagram #authors #emotions #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mental #power #strengthtraining #strengthandconditioning #sunset #sunrise #coach #spirit #new #jesus #columbusohio #unitedstates #prayer #women #business #businesswoman #businessman #businessowner #anxiety
We get distressed. Disappointed. Confused. Off-balance. Sometimes we forget, we wear a crown. So Readjust yourself. Re-calibrate yourself. Receive some fresh truth. And then rise to your feet.

We label people as broken. We ignore the older #man or #woman whose face is wrinkled and worn. Yet, they are filled with wisdom if you have ears to hear their heart. We walk over the homeless body tattered on the sidewalk. Yet, they have a story that gives credence to their condition. We condemn the one who can’t remember as if they are the plague. Yet their hurtful #perspective shaped their blocked painfilled memories.
Have mercy. Remember – broken #crayons still #color.
Right. We want to be right.
We fight to be right.
We want a right to our opinion.
But right isn’t always righteous.
The term dogmatic in my line of work means a rigid stubborn opinion. It’s normally rooted in a belief system through trauma along with emotions like anger, fear and pain. These emotions can explode when a person feels powerless to control or change themselves or others. Conversely, emotions can cause someone to shut down when feeling trapped or scared too.
What to remember is that trauma comes with an agenda to protect itself. So, if you encounter yourself or another person blowing up or cussing at you, you will need to love that person. And with great intention, see yourself and them on the same cross with Jesus. Forgiven.
Intention isn’t emotion. It’s purpose. Intention causes you to grab hold of the cross and the power of resurrection for you AND for them.
Love is always part of the equation. The other part of the equation is to remember that it’s not about you. The enemy purposely attempts to turn people against one another. If you pray together, you’ll only stay together by forgiving and forgetting any err. Humility will have to be your mantra if you want to move away from feeling angry or powerless.
Remember that we are in Christ and we get to reinforce His victory.
WALK AGAIN. Be encouraged. Maybe you once lived in low self esteem. Maybe you do now. Maybe you were afraid of your own shadow once too? Maybe you are confused now and don’t know what to do. Be encouraged. There was a time when I thought I would not walk ever again. I thought my life would simply remain in my own self made darkness. But God. God IS for you. Don’t give up on Him or on you. This WILL pass and you WILL WALK AGAIN!!
SIMMER TIME. Are you tired of being on the back of the stove? Have you been waiting for someone else to give you permission to live? It’s time. You’re ready. Take off your own lid. Taste your own soup. Add some salt if you need it. Get off the fearful burner and get moving. Maybe you NEEDED to simmer a while. But now go burn for the world to see His goodness. Simmer time is over and it’s time to eat.
The original Emancipation Proclamation was #good #news then and it’s good news now. And from the foundation of the world, you have been #emancipated. Time for the writers to write. Time for the business owners to do business. Time for the travelers to travel. Time for people who are supposed to care for others…… It’s time for you to care for others. Rise up and be free to be who you are supposed to be on the #planet. Be #love. He emancipated you to love yourself and those around you. When you know it… Then you #live it. 🌎 Let YOUR freedom ring!
And when you know your emancipation, you know your proclamation.
