I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¿DO YOU HAVE A "TRUE" TESTIMONY?


We all have our own life story. It is filled with relationships and events that help shape who we are and what we believe to be TRUE about the world. Depending on our perspective and willingness to grow, our experiences can become element for negativity and patterns of playing the victim, or they can fuel a life of empowerment and continued self-development. It is the story we tell ourselves about what happens that makes all the difference. I often think about life and how we as a people deal with it. Everyday we are faced with challenges that some times we are not prepared for. Whether it is a negative phone call, a disturbing event or a nasty individual, somehow we are challenged. When this happens to you, how do you deal with it? Are you quick to respond according to the flesh OR do you rise up and let your humanity stand? If one were to take a moment to look at the life story they created for themselves, I am SURE most will NOT feel @ peace with the past AND fret about the future. So many of us stand up and say that we are GOD-FEARING but we are NOT! We don’t take care of OUR fellow man and are so concern about ourselves. How can we have a TRUE testimony if WE retain a lot of guilt OR resentment AND often feel weighed down by the life we live? No matter who the characters are in your story OR what they have done, you are the only one who can give their actions the meaning they will have for you. You are the only one who can define what role you will play in the lives of others. It is time for us to STOP giving these COMMERICAL testimonies where the TRUTH is altered to sound good to the listeners. WE NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR TESTIMONIES FOR THEY REALLY CAN ENABLE US TO LEARN, GROW, FORGIVE & FIND COMPASSION THAT WILL MOVE US INTO A BETTER FUTURE. WE ARE OUR VERY OWN AUTHORS OF THE TESTIMONIES THAT WE WRITE; ISN’T TIME THAT WE CREATE A TRUE MASTERPIECE? DO YOU HAVE A TESTIMONY? I MEAN AN UNDENIABLE CONFESSION OF THE GOODNESS OF GOD & MANKIND?
