One of my favorite gospel songs is “We fall down” by Donnie McClurkin; I’d say about 98% of the time when I hear that song play I tear up. I don’t know if its because of what’s going on in my life at the time or because the song gives me hope. Regardless it means the absolutely world to me.
a saint is just a sinner who fell down and got up~dm
How many times have we done some questionable ass shit? How many times have we fallen short? How many times could we have done better? Too many times to count for most of us but at the same time we are STILL blessed. Just opening your eyes in the morning is a straight blessing. I’ve sinned and dome some questionable shit myself and I could only pray that God still remembers me. A sinner. We all mess up in life but the one who can admit their faults and strive for better is the strongest one. Netflix just dropped “Girlfriends” and in season two Joan and Toni’s relationship really takes a nose dive. Dealing with constant, nonchalant behavior throughout their friendship: Joan decides she has had enough. Why continue to deal with someone who rarely has your best interest in mind or someone who barely upholds the meaning of friendship? CUT THAT OFF! Episode 7 changes things: it pin points the TRUE flaws in man. Oh how we have forgotten that we ALL fall short. We all have flaws. What determines who is better? Money? Morals? Education? Looks? Bloodline? Background? Followers? None of those things; we’ve forgotten that the true intentions of someone comes from the heart: the soul. Everyone is able to change, it’s just that people don’t always seem to. With that very fact, who are we to look down at each other? I have my own flaws and I’m pretty sure there are things I could change about the way I react to my environment; the same goes for anyone reading this post. We all fuck up in life but that doesn’t mean we are withheld from forgiveness. I’ve said some mean things about people who have hurt me and I can vouch that it has added no benefits to my life. I’ve been rude to people who’ve hurt me even though they themselves are going through something that could truly use my attention. I’ve ignored or lashed out on people who’ve tried to move my way of thinking into a different direction. I’ve stolen, cheated, lied, belittled, and disrespected people in my life; nonetheless I can still be forgiven. You can’t just say “forgive me” and think that everything will be good now: own up to your faults and GENUINELY seek forgiveness. We have got to start living a better life for ourselves and the world in order to see better results.
I made this post because I finished watching episode 7 in tears; I had called my mom early cussing about my sibling and spoken to a friend on Monday about some feelings I’ve been having towards a few of the other people I once upon a time called my friends. A saint is just a sinner who fell down but they couldn’t stay there, so they got up. Blessings. You can post for the world to see all day, errr day, but people never know the true battles we are all facing. That “something’s gotta give” starts with YOU! My new mission is PEACE! I hope you will all join me in this journey.
