Free from mental slavery

Sitting here reading up on the many nations that raped the land of my ancestors…Africa. Having been displaced, not knowing my true identity and being enlightened on my rich heritage that was stolen, i expected my first reaction to be anger and hatred towards the perpetrators but unlike the savage they presumed we were, i feel a sense of pride and a sense of urgency to spread the good news of my heritage to the world.
The more educated we become, the more we free our selves from mental slavery.

Wishing

More than half the time i blog i don’t know what i am going to write about and today is one such day. All i know is that i  want to say something. Where do i start? Well, i am sitting in on my boyfriend’s bed, he is at work and i should be preparing to leave for school which starts on Monday. I miss my friends, who have the wildest time with but it is still hard to leave my love nest.

I am addicted to my boyfriend he is handsome, sexy and with an amazing personality. We’ve been together for 3 yrs in this long distance relationship. I never dream that we would be together this long but i sure did wish it. I believe that if you want something really bad and you think about it everyday, it will come through. Just try it you would be surprise. It is just like having faith, believing that which haven’t materialized as yet.

So now I’m wishing that we stay together and have a happy life. Lets see if this one will come through.

Why are we here?

Good day Strangers,

My boyfriend is struggling with a question that everyone asks at some point in their life. “Why are we here?”  I don’t know the answer to this and it is so hard watching him go through this daily, not knowing his purpose, where he is going and where he is coming from. Slavery displaced many of us blacks and many of us are still finding it difficult to move on. If you don’t know your past, how can you have a future. I believe this is the root of most of the problems plaguing black communities.

As for me, i try to just live the best life i can here on earth. I try to find fulfillment in helping others, praying, spending time with love ones, giving thanks and appreciating life for what it is. I told my boyfriend to try Jesus, but he doesn’t believe that religion is the answer and i can’t blame him. I pray he finds his way.

We go to school, study hard, trying to pass our exams so we can enter college. Then comes college with all the expenses, we continue to struggle until we get that degree. So now it is time for the dream job, getting it is another struggle, then you struggle to keep it. Followed by kids and a partner, more stress trying to grow them the proper way and giving them the best life. You accomplish this goal, but now you are sick, time to die. So why are we here, to struggle then die?

Anti-christianity

Many Christians are afraid of exposing themselves to the many beliefs out there and the ever-growing number of antiChristianity arguments in circulation. And i understand why they are afraid it is kind of scary watching people tear apart the GOD you hold in reverence, just blatantly belittling him.

I grew up in a Christian home and i undoubtedly have benefited from this association. However it did not protect me from the dangers of this world. I can’t blame the  religion i have to blame the Christians.  In fact the religion teaches, love and all these good stuff. But those who profess to uphold these principles are the ones who are failing the world today. We are humans i believe no one can uphold all these principles, all Christians have faltered but if they would just admit it and share their struggles with the world people would better relate to them.

It is time to put away the falseness because the world is seeing right through it! I believe in God and i am always excited to hear others view on spirituality because many of them do have a point. But this spiritual journey is something you have to do on your own because when you have a personal experience with God nothing can dissuade you. And you can now share your experience with others.

He works in every situation!

Recently I’ve had some boyfriend issues, i knew what i needed to do to solve the problem but i was afraid to lose my bf in the process of setting him straight.

The issue is that of late he has become very disrespectful, withdrawn and selfish. These are clear signs that he is either cheating, bored, wants to move or something else. Whatever the reason is, these signs were not good and i wasn’t going to tolerate it anymore.

Luckily i know what a man wants and i know how to help him realize what he wants. And what he wants is me because i am a good woman! If you are in a serious relationship with a man who loves you and wants to make a commitment to you and then you see him acting up, don’t give up on him just let him know what he has and will be losing.

I may not go to church or am i what people consider righteous but i believe in God and i apply the principles of the Bible in my everyday life and the Bible was saying don’t be anxious of Anything and i believe my bf falls in the “anything” category. So i didn’t panic, i thought this through and dealt with him.

So when he called me being rude i just gently told him bye and did not accept or return his calls for a week. He thinks he is tough and after realizing on the first day that i was ignoring him he tried not to call. This got me a bit scared wondering if he was going to move on or something but i remembered that i should not be anxious, i should be at peace knowing God is working it out. So i waited it out and refuse to give in and call him. I posted statuses on Facebook indicating that I was moving on and looking for my prince. I posted pictures of me going out with friends having a great time knowing he couldn’t handle it because I am what he wants.

Next the text messages started and the apologies kept coming. Then when he thought he was actually losing me then came the tears and I knew he was genuine. I didn’t just take him back I laid down the rules and let him know not to take a good woman for granted because I could be gone in a minute.

Now he is attentive, romantic, just amazing and the love is stronger than ever! God can work in any and every area of our life! Lets not put him in a box or believe he will not listen to you. He always comes through for me i love him and i am grateful that my saviour looks at the desires of my heart and see that they are genuine. I refuse to judge people thinking only those who go to church every Sunday have a relationship with the Almighty. Anyone can! Try Him!

Spiritual Journey

Dear Stranger,

Something strange happens to me whenever i read the Bible, i always seem to find a scripture that applies to the situation i am in. I don’t know if i am the only one experiencing this but i find it amazing.  I know when you talk about Jesus, the Bible and religion these days you are looked upon as a fanatic. But i can’t resist sharing this experience and so much more, i want the world to feel what i am feeling. I am not trying to impose my belief on anyone, i just hope persons will take the time to examine their spiritual side, trust me, it will be rewarding.

I am not sure if i am a Christian or if i want to be. I believe in the Bible, but i don’t believe i need to be under any religious umbrella to find what i am looking for. Whenever i try to look at religion i just get so confuse, so i am leaving that one for the theologians. When i  pray i do not know if i should say God, which ironically spells dog back ways so i really dislike that term, i don’t know if i should say Jesus, Yahweh, Jehovah, Lord….. So i say the Almighty! Because he his mighty, unstoppable, nonprogrammable, all knowing, awesome, caring, wise, holy…… Finding your Saviour is a journey you alone can take, it is personal. It is about building a relationship.

I want to leave these words with you, be anxious about nothing, be at peace knowing that the Almighty is in control and is working it out for you. This helps me a lot!

Let me know what your journey is like maybe u can help me to understand the things i am not clear  on. Thanks much!

Searching

I am about to start a spiritual journey. One i knew i had to undertake at some point to find myself and true happiness. I know many persons have done this before and failed, while others think it is useless. I don’t want anyone to tell me where to find happiness, i’m going to find it on my own. I don’t know what i’ll discover but i am willing to go for the ride.
