Thankful Thursday

Sometimes the things we are most THANKFUL for are things that have yet to happen.  It is the very definition of faith – the substance or assurance of things hoped for, the evidence or conviction of things not seen.  Oftentimes in life, people pay it forward because they have been blessed and because their love …

Motivational Monday

Motivational Monday

THE TIME IS NOW!  If there is something you have been wanting to do, if there is a thought that has been monopolizing your every waking moment, if there is a dream that has captured your subconscious, it is time to act!  Tomorrow is not promised or guaranteed.  The time wasted second-guessing yourself or contemplating the …

Where Lies Your Faith?

Faith and belief is a personal journey, a one-on-one relationship, regardless of what higher power you believe in.  Sometimes that belief is diminished when the object of faith lies in the messenger and not the message.  There are many outstanding oracles that serve as vessels of the gospel, but too often the vessel either anoints …

The Rock – Happy Father’s Day

The Rock When God made you, he already had a plan; He called you to conquer and be ruler of all the lands. He made you king, priest, protector, and provider; He said after Himself, no one came higher. Chiseled from the rock of Gibraltar and laced with the armor of the most holy; He placed …

Thankful Thursday!

 BrotherWord - Thankful Thursdays!

Today I’m thankful for the doubters and the naysayers,
For the skeptics and the haters,
For those that said I would never amount to anything or make it.
For those that tried to break me down, but never broke my spirit,
Those who criticized, but couldn’t see I was gifted.
You ridiculed and tried to demoralize,
Never knowing you were helping me grow, contributing to my rise.
Took some lumps and let you think you had won,
But I always knew just like the morning dew, I’d rise like the sun.
So thank you for not believing, thank you for thinking I was defeated,
You fed the fire within and made me reach deeper.
No animosity, no hard feelings, I wish you all the best,
You are my inspiration and why I plan to reach and teach the rest.
You too can overcome, you too can catch your dream,
All you need is faith, perseverance, and belief in one’s self; the perfect team.
Take that first step, keep moving, put one foot in front the other,
The haters will hate, but as long as you keep moving that hate diminishes further.
Be Thankful for it all, the ups and downs, the good and the bad,
The best is yet to come and right now is your launchpad!  ©
