There will always be those that speak lies to watch us in pain as we are crucified.

Always speak the truth and testify even if it leads to your own demise.

Never pursue them eye for an eye because you are only serving your pride.

For those that want to watch us die, always love them deep inside.

Forgive them at every sunrise.

Our thoughts perpetuate our attitude.

Our attitude determines the direction we walk in life.

The direction in life we walk determines where we end up.

The world is nothing but a place to be explored.

Our attitude shapes the filter in which we see it.

A leader shapes their own life filter with their thoughts.

A follower allows the world to shape it based on their experiences in it.

If we do not own the feelings of our heart and make them our own. Then they will take whatever shape the world makes for them and like water your heart will fill whatever container it is put in. As opposed to leading and flowing in the direction it chooses. It is easy to become angry or bitter when we are hurt or betrayed. But when we have the strength to love those who have hurt us and carry that pain for the ones we love and the people in this world that are worth protecting. We love as Christ taught us to. Forgive them for they know not what they do. Just as if I have wronged you, sometimes I have known not what I do.

When you have fallen and nothing in life on this world makes sense.  When you have lost everything you have. When you have been betrayed by everyone that you thought loved you. When you have lost the one you love.  When you fought for what you believe in and what you thought was right and you crash into the rock. You have to stand up because none of that matters. It doesn’t change who you are. It doesn’t change what you believe in.   The only thing that defines you is what you accept in life.

Courage isn’t a level of physical strength or being able to talk the loudest. It is doing what you know is right regardless of what you know you fear. It’s turning a blind eye to  what you know you fear and doing what you know is right.

You have to stand up and have faith in Christ and fly.  When you take off he will show you that you always had what it took to fly.

The decisions and actions you take when you feel the most fear,  when you feel the most pain, will be what echo throughout the course of your life and make you who you are.
