Emerging

We emerge from isolation, silence and tragedy, to stand tall in times of obscurity. We are a people of untethered strength with a force that is greater than anything the world has ever seen. We rise out of desperation, we reach forward with vigor; we stand in the gap ready to take the challenges that faces the next generation. This is a relentless generation that is searching for its identity. We call then the techs’, the millennial; just like those who was sent to spy out the Land, some returned with a bad report. However, there is always a remnant who is willing to stand against all odds even when standing alone means being alienated from the crowd.

We come from a place where there are no ambiguities, it is plain and simple; we are a force with the heart of a lion yet humble as a lamb. Standing on the side being undecided is not an option, the time is now to get up and show your strength; your will to survive. You will emerge with strength standing strong and prepared for a battle against the invisible foe. He is willing to cause collateral damage to the kingdom without remorse.

The emergence of a new world order has taken place. The world is a different place, society has transformed into a social scale that has never been seen before. We are drifting into a world of seclusion, however there are still questions that needs to be answer. Looking at things from a world perspective, we see new trends taking place. I ask myself where is God in all of this? Everything seems to change and it is not necessarily for the better. Make the comparison and determine if we are a sane society! Yes, we are coming to terms with the reality of what was: is not what it used to be.

I am disappointed of the prospects of what is ahead. Where are we to place the blame? Surely, we can look at leadership and shove it off on them but we to have to live up to our responsibility. Why are we in such a hard place? Clearly the choice we make leads us down the road of despair but there is hope. At lease that is what I think. As we emerge through time and season we can begin to repair the path that seems irreparable. The God of yesterday is still the God of today; we can’t replace him even if we try. There is no denying that he exists and is in control. He is the one who can take us out of darkness and show us the light. Despite what is going on around us, we can emerge with hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Where are we going as a nation? During all this confusion, it is time to come out of the dark and let our light shine. There is work to be done with truth and righteousness showing the light in dark places. The emergence of a new world order suggests we wake up to watch what is happening around us. Government is not the answer, church is not the answer; we have taken on the consciousness and realization that there is only one answer and it is in God. It is time to rise and emerge from obscurity; raise the flag of victory without surrendering to low morale. Find your place in this space and stand tall with head raised proud of who you are and to whom you belong. It is time to rise and lift the blood-stained banner high. The cross was carried on our behalf; the story was told and proven and now it is finished your redemption has been paid. It is time to emerge!

“Reflection”

 The road ahead; Is there hope for tomorrow

As I sit and reminiscence about the past and look to the future, I look with hope for a brighter tomorrow despite the challenges that is ahead. The dust has settled on the past year; soon we will forget the moments, the challenges and the tragedy. We have survived the pain and heartbreaks the most difficult moments with its up’s and down. Let us not forget who it was that guided us through moments of despair. History will mark the year and all its highlights. We will see these times as moment with different points of view but the one thing for which we will be grateful, we were part of those historic moments.

God has given us a mandate; we cannot think with a narrow mind or look through a tiny microscope because this universe is too large to ignore. I am not about to make New Year’s resolution because they never work even when you try. My question is, are there hope for tomorrow; is there anything hopefully to look forward to? It depends on your outlook on life! Think of where you want to be and set goal to reach them. Things will not change by thinking alone you must plan, create strategy and find ways to implement your plans. We are all procrastinators and before you know it time will pass and we will look back and wonder what has happened. Work with urgency to fulfill those goals make this effort part of your daily breathing habit.

It was just yesterday I was thinking that I was the youngest in my group but today as I look back I have graduate to the top of the class wondering how did I get here; now I am the one they are calling old. Is this true? What is oldness it is just a season by which we have graduate to someone more meaningful with so much more to offer. One thing is for sure we are smarter and wiser and we have the experience and the foresight to see far into the future.

Is there hope for tomorrow? Yes, there is! The government and the politician may let us down, things might not have turned out the way we thought but there is hope and there is safety in unity. The struggle has begun, let us not be side step by empty promises; we have already seen the trends that is set. Join the struggle and come together to fight for our future, our children and our grandchildren they are the ones who is inheriting the mess that is going on. However, we need not worry because God has it all in control. The word is: “don’t worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for today is the evil there of. Don’t worry be happy!

With that said, yes there is hope for tomorrow. We who have hope beyond this present moment will one day graduate and be at peace forevermore. We have a mandate and that is to spread love even in the face of hate. No matter the circumstances, let us give love a chance!

When silence is not golden

Silence is the lack of audible sound. It is a moment of low intensity or the absence of communication. In silence we can communicate with body language which includes gesture that is being interpreted by anyone that is in connection with the sender. It is a very important factor in sending messages through rituals and other non-verbal gestures.

Within our society the right to silence is a legal protection enjoyed by people undergoing interrogation by qualified authorities. We are all able to exercise these rights; it is something we obtain as citizens of a free community. “You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can be held against you…”

If we were to examine silence in spiritual turns, it can be disturbing. It was said that God was silence for a period of four hundred years. In those moments the people of Israel was without a true guide and because of this they were left in bondage and mistreated by their wicked task master.

In spirituality silence is often a metaphor for inner stillness. When there is a silent moment you tend to free yourself from the onslaught of thoughts and patterns which is important in spiritual development. Such silence is not the absence of sound it is to bring you in contact with the creator and put Him in focus so that you can develop a closer relationship.

We all can agree that silence is a powerful force. It can produce profound emotions or startling sensory experiences. In today’s world of media saturation silence seems to have become a scarce commodity. There is no limit to the rhetoric and the sound that is drowning out our conscience in making decision that affect our society.

I am tending to look more closely at the word silence because there are times when silence is not golden. Let’s check the dictionary to look at some of the definitions. Although I can find various definitions, I will choose one that I feel fits my reason of expression. This is “Refusal or failure to speak out.” The time to speak out is times when we are compel to go against oppression and excessive human behavior.

Just recently we were all heartbroken for the children of that senseless gun violence. How long do we have to sit back and wait for more of this tragedy to happen? The time is now to break our silence and let it be known that enough is enough. Children should not have to go through this tragedy. It’s time to break the silence and let it be known; we will not sit and wait for this to happen again. The time for action is now so let not your silence be golden.
