Never Forget Where Yah Has Brought You From
It’s deep how life comes full circle at times. I met this brother Sierra in 1991 when I was trying to get in shape. Little did I know that the Most High crossed our paths so that I could build my spiritual “muscles.” Sierra was not only a trainer at a national chain gym but a man of God—and later I discovered he was married to my good friend from high school, Youlanda. Sierra was a strong influence in my life and we became close friends.
Today the tables have turned in regards to physical and spiritual shape and my beloved friend now needs me like I needed him in 1991. So this morning was our first day training together in almost 28 years and it was a blessing to pour into my beloved brother.
Biblical Life Principle: Never forget where Yah has brought you from, so that you will always have compassion to reach back to help others get back to where you are (Pro 27:17).
