Truth be told #12- (PART I) – Having full liberty to express your emotional, sensual or sexual desires and yet choosing to deny temporary pleasure for God’s way (especially while in or under a difficult or pressured situation) is the true definition of Freedom in its highest form. Apostle D….
TBT Scripture: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 1 Peter 2:16 KJV
Most people I allow close access to my life seem to all have the same question: How were you able to overcome and become successful at what you do? Is it because God favors me over you? Am I just lucky? Is it because I was born an identical twin? Did God place a silver spoon in my mouth because I was light-skinned and a rusty one to all who are Dark-skinned? Some may have heard or said it like this.. . This world is set up for white folks to succeed and Black folks to fail. The white man/government is against us! They don’t want you to succeed!
In order to go further, we must look at the very statements above and think about what we are really saying. I’m sure most will agree God created the Heavens and Earth so here we go:
Imagine yourself standing before God in an open field, next to you there is someone who is your same age, same weight, height and has been thru the same exact ups and downs you have encountered in life. Everything is exactly the same except their skin color is White.
God himself hands you both a seed of wheat grain in your hands and then tells both of you to plant the seed in your hands for he has already commanded the earth to multiply it. You both plant your seed in the ground at the same exact time. One week later you both come back to check on the status of your seed. Your seed looks as if it has barely broken the ground and is already being eaten by insects and the other person’s grain has taken off and is already 3 feet high with no signs of insect damage or decay.
TBT Question: Did God watch over and protect the other person’s grain, causing it to grow faster because of their skin complexion?
I pray your answer is No. Nevertheless, our actions speak that we do believe God blesses based on skin color when we say things like the world is set up for another race to succeed and another to fail.
Doesn’t anyone want to stop believing History has your fate already written within it? For some of you that don’t know, here’s the TBT Fact: THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT HIS-STORY. It was told from “HIS” point of view. Ok ladies I’ll make a new word for you guys because yall show nuff got some HERSTORY (points of views). ? I KNOW.. I KNOW… I should have been a comedian. Ok enough back to my serious face. ?
So back to the question: How does one become successful at what they do?
The TBT Answer: Part II coming soon.
Apostle D – Just a voice crying in the world-er-ness.
