At 41 years old, I have come to realize that there are some things that I might not ever know the reason "WHY". Canvassing over the last 3 months of my life, I have come to a point where I might not need to know the "WHY", but I do need to know the "NEXT", and the "WHAT".
What's the "next" thing that I, you, me would need to do when we deal with things that we don't have answers for or too? And for the "what", are the lessons, the experience, the thing that we should know about the thing we just encountered?
While God gives us Wisdom when we ask for it and knowledge to know a thing, sometimes we are not privy to those things until after the lesson is learned or the experience is felt... Wisdom still has done its job: It gave us the opportunity to reflect on what WAS and what IS.
One thing that is always certain is that you and I must remain steady in our convictions, and take responsibility for our own life. There can be NO blaming of what did or didn't happen at the end of our time here on earth. While I believe that there is a code of honor amongst people when dealing and interacting with one another, that may not be the same mindset that others have.
So you have to look at every experience, every interjection, every encounter, every uplift and even those things that "we might never know" the answer to as all relative to the furtherance of purpose divinely being created for you to be an express image of God.
Today, as we Sit-in a little later than normal, ease your mind, heart and spirit, stay steady in the progression of your life's assignment. Love yourself ferociously, know that God will send others to cross your path that will love you back the same way. Do unto others what you want to be done unto you. Avoid being bipolar in your decision-making process and remember every action has a reaction attached to it. #SaturdaySitins
