Got Faith?

What a time, we are living in! The state of the world is pure confusion and sorrow. So many of my friends are popping anti-depressants like candy……. many are at their wits end. Many are engaging in activity, potentially harmful and they don’t even know it. Lord, have mercy.

“What to do Lord?”

That was what I asked. “God, what can I do? I, myself, am just a bit away from snapping! How can I help? What can I say?"
But something MUST be done…
Then it occurred to me. Since I haven’t “snapped” yet-lol- I should be strong for us both!

Got Faith?

I have Faith enough in God to know that not only I can develop, grow and pull through the struggle but so can YOU!
Isn’t that why we have each other- to lean on?

I can’t stress enough that we ALL are created with a purpose. We all are created with the intensions of succeeding. Not success as we see it and know it, such as achieving these material things that can be given and taken…but spiritual and mental success.

We have the ability to pull ourselves out of these depressive states, in spite of what’s going on around us- in order to reach our goals. Fulfill our purpose. These emotional and mental attacks are on us for a reason- to stop us from reaching our goals. God’s goals. To stop us from having what God has offered us. Success. Peace. Joy.

But, we must have Faith! We must have faith and continue to persevere and not give up. Not give up mentally- no matter what our bodies are telling us. Train your mind, and the body will follow.

Have Faith, until you can, I will for you- because we are our brothers’ keeper.

Peace & Blessings,
