PURGING PASSIVITY

Today I noticed a father trying to teach his son how to ride a bike. In his frustration the father yells “don’t be scared!” As he and his son walk by to give it another try—I encouraged his father and then said to his son, “Good job! Yes falling on concrete hurts and although it’s okay to be scared, don’t let the fear of falling rule you.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I learned over the years teaching at the Cave of Adullam that it’s truly feckless to condemn a boy for being scared because EVERY man will feel fear. In the words of Nelson Mandela “The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers it.”

Never Forget Where Yah Has Brought You From

September 19, 2019

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.

Also, a flat-roof in Michigan is not ideal—it needs to be maintained annually. Praise Yah for my neighbor because another month of procrastinating could have cost our family💰!
