SPRING FORTH NOW
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
The times in which we, especially as Black people, exist are critical which challenges our being, our Blackness, in relation to others, including how organizational structures and systems promote anti-Blackness. These critical times are visible, for example, in the experiences of George Floyd, Carmon Nazario, Daunte Wright, etc. and the suppression of the right to vote in Georgia, Texas, Arizona, etc. Trying to make sense out of these times and discern what it is we are to do and how to accomplish it leaves us frustrated and angry yet challenged to redeem the times, pressing forward and higher to something better and greater that what was and is. To press our way through the frustration and anger of critical times demands we take back control from the frustration and anger which separates us from overcoming our issues. To take back control you must Reframe Your Issues in a manner that allows for you to leverage your expectations, your hope for overcoming, transforming not just systems and structures but a focus on the levers of those systems and structures to ensure change is not temporal but eternal. Reframe Your Issues in which you wake up to the real causes and instead of bandaging the wounds, seek to treat the source which is a direct result fo weighing the option of change versus transformation; to adjust or Soar into the fulfillment of your expectations. We must wake up, weigh our options and walk in resolutions that call into repentance, the turning from so as to takeoff and Soar, increasing rapidly in the fulfillment of your expectations of overcoming and inheriting life and life more abundantly in all things.
