"Even though we are always against the odds, these are the things that molded us." - Bobby Ray
Our commitment to living life must be on-going. You can't turn it off and on. It doesn't work that way. It can't stop because life doesn't stop being lived. It keeps moving regardless of how we feel. Try as we might we can't stop the days from coming. We must embrace every single day. We must expect more of ourselves. We have to stop making excuses. We blame others for our mistakes, we argue about our missteps, we even get frustrated saying others aren't helping us. It's not fair to hope, or expect, those around us to push and pull us if we are not willing to do it with them. Life will create struggles and tests that can push you down. The question isn't if you can get back up. Sometimes you need a helping hand to do it. So, are you willing to let others help you get back up when you feel like you can't? We all need it. We are in this together. It will take longer sometimes, but our acceptance that life and the world moves on with or without us, is the beginning of understanding our place in it.
Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you let others provide the helping hands you need. Stop trying to put yourselves in others shoes, and let's all put ourselves in God's hands.
Have a blessed day everyone.

"Be The Guarantee"
Seems simple enough doesn't it? We woke up this morning with another day filled with possibilities. Yet, we don't always see it do we? Instead we ignore the sunrise, complain about the commute, get upset we have school, let someone steal our joy, give in to the adversity. We miss the beauty in having a job, a car, ability to get an education, the power to control our attitude, and the beauty in having strength to carry ourselves beyond that adversity. We miss it because it's easier to notice that one thing that derailed us today. That one person that was negative. We are determined some days to throw in the towel on what could be, in favor of what wasn't. We've all heard it. Tomorrow is not promised. Let me say it again. Tomorrow is not promised. It isn't! Nothing is. There isn't any thing that says today is a guaranteed day. A day where it all goes right. A day where it all fell in to place. They real guarantee is on us. It's in us. A guarantee that says I will choose to live in this moment. To take the joy that I'm given. To learn my lessons. To grow and appreciate the ability to do so. To give my worry to God, to have faith, and to accept that who and what I want to be is on me.
Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is from Deuteronomy 31:6. "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you."
Have a blessed day everyone.
