The strength to survive

The events of the last month have left us thinking about life from a different perspective. It’s not just the things that are happening naturally as they occur daily; I am force to look at things through the eyes of the spirit or from a supernatural perspective. I would like to give respect and send condolences to those have lost so much in the most recent events. No one would like to go through such horror and terror. With this in my mind it is not very kind for anyone to make these events a target for condemnation no matter what your belief. It is a time to light the light instead of cursing the darkness. Let’s have some heart and reach out to those affected with love and compassion! When a candle is lit it exposes the darkness thereby giving hope and comfort to those in need. We are true champions; we fight to win!

We are all under siege! In the moment of physical attacks there are also spiritual attack against our soul and our faith. We are survivors and no one, no human, no devil or demons will be able to keep us down because we know our God and he always win. We are more than conquerors; our faith stands strong!

Just recently I came across a song by Skillet written by: John and Korey Cooper. These lyrics spoke to me in a powerful way because they reflect the sentiments of my heart. Hope you share the sentiments because it is time to stand up and say no to the systems that tries to hold us bound.

“Death surrounds, my heartbeat’s slowing down. I won’t take this world’s abuse
I won’t give up or refuse. This is how it feels when you’re bent and broken.
This is how it feels when your dignity’s stolen. When everything you love is leaving.
You hold on to what you believe in.

The last thing I heard was you whispering goodbye! And then I heard you flatline. No, not gonna die tonight; We’ve gotta stand and fight forever (don’t close your eyes) no, not gonna die tonight. We’ve gotta fight for us together; no, we’re not gonna die tonight.”

These are serious times, we cannot sit by idle and hope that things will change by itself. We are the conduits of change but we have to know how to make the connection. Light the lamp of love, reach out and take back our territory from the hands of the enemy. Fear should not prevail. It is time for war on the enemy! Enough is enough. Talk is cheap, let gear up and take the challenge to the gates of the enemy. Let him know that we are not gonna die tonight. We are armed with the strength to survive!

The writer continues, “Break their hold; cause I won’t be controlled. They can’t keep their chains on me when the truth has set me free. This is how it feels when you take your life back. This is how it feels when you finally fight back, when life pushes me I push harder. What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger. Don’t you give up on me; you’re everything I need. This is how it feels when you take your life back. This is how it feels when you fight back. We’ve gotta fight for us together. No, we’re not gonna die tonight.”

We have come a long way, there is no need to turn back now. We will survive the test of time; our spirit will not be broken. For those who are silent it is time to speak up. Those who are relaxing it is time to get up. Let us not lose our voice in the time of crisis; every action sends a statement therefore it is time to be proactive. Are you standing on the fence? We need you to get up and take a hold of your future. Make a bold statement, raise the alarm. Say no to injustice; determine you are going to win. We’re not gonna die tonight!
