I heard a song yesterday that was so representative of my journey that I chair-danced and praised my way from Queens to Hempstead and back, windows down, hair flying, volume way up and smiling hard! At red lights, I didn’t look left or right and cared not if anyone was watching ~ I was in my own space.
The beat was infectious and the lyrics were my own:
I’ve been through the fire
But God had his eye on me
- Most saw my ‘outer’ and never knew;
- Some witnessed and sadly said nothing;
- Others knew a bit and spoke on my behalf – yet not enough;
- And a few took my plight to heart and said ‘enough, you are far too worthy’ – then took it to God in my honor!
I’m so glad that God lifted me and showed me a better way: OUT!
Don’t always think that your words of encouragement will fall on deaf ears. Sometimes that ‘push’ is all a person needs to hear in order to take the necessary steps to move forward.
I know that my mission in life has always been to help others as much as possible – without fanfare.
What is your mission? Words without action are worthless.
My smile will continue to be my proud umbrella and I have begun a successful mission to ‘take back my life!’
