2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
I’m far from the most religious man in the world so it would be hypocritical of me to get on here and write as though my life is all bibles and redemption. I love women, I love alcohol and I have a lot of anger in my heart. I’m quick to resentment and I don’t forgive easily, these are my sins… These are the parts of me that I need to better, that I pray change before I lose what’s important to me or what can become important to me.
Now that I’ve confessed by sins I want to write about something else that’s important to me. I want to write about Hope and Faith, I can be cynical at times, I can be lonely and all those things. I share these parts of me with the world because I’m a writer and part of writing is opening yourself up. But even with all my fears and doubts about the future I understand that things will be alright.
There are going to be moments where life gets real as hell! Where bills pile up and a week after payday you have a hundred dollars in your account. They’ll be moments where the people you love seem like they could care less about your well being and anything I write is from first hand knowledge because I’m human, because I’m living. When these moments happened to me I felt like there was no coming back. But what I’ve realized over this past year especially is that the worse things get the stronger I was becoming.
It’s easy to see today and tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and feel like ‘I’m never going to get a break!’ But that’s not what’s up, your day is coming and all you have to do is have faith! Believe that your day is around the corner, don’t front when things get hard like it’s all good! Embrace the fact that times can get rough, embrace the tears, and embrace that piece of your heart that feels like it just may explode!
Embrace it because that’s your old skin falling off so you can become that Butterfly you were born to be!
It sounds cheesy, it sounds like something people say to sell you a timeshare but it’s the truth! Faith is all about the unseen, faith is all about knowing that it’s going to rain even though the drought is causing fires left and right. Faith is life! Hope is the love we have for ourselves!
I often get asked why in the world do I talk about women so much, it’s not that serious is usually what follows that question. But it is that serious to me! It’s serious because God made a woman from our rib! He made women to compliment me; he made me to compliment her. When I fall to my knees and when I feel like I just want to give up she is supposed to be there, on her knees with me!
Praying with me!
Crying with me!
Talking it out with me!
Those are the expectations I have for whatever women that is going to be in my life. That’s the Faith I have that it will happen, the Hope I have that what I’m building is enough to make her happy when that moment comes!
I’m no different then a million other people, I just don’t mind writing it! I know what God has for me is for me and that gives me peace of mind even in the moments when I’m tossing and turning and can’t sleep. When I’m angry and regret fills my soul!
I know the sun is going to come out eventually and with that my Faith and Hope are renewed… All I want to get across this morning is that if you’re going thru something or if you’re waiting for life to get better, to slow down and shine… It’s coming, I promise because I believe in hard work, I believe in love and I believe that all of us have some good in us if we’re just willing to want it!
So do me a favor and smile… Smile because God loves you and I love you and the people around you love you! We can do this and we’ll do it together! I built my readership by believing that my words were worth people paying for. Now I want to let each and every person that reads this know your life is worth loving, fighting and praying for!
I’m Demez and if you ever want to talk are if you have a story to tell hit me and we’ll make that happen; you never know who your story can help bless! Enjoy your Sunday and speak to a stranger today.
