Clarity in vision
Walking with the Lion.
A day without Him,
My soul’s left crying.
This world, vast beyond comprehension.
Our time allotted as willed.
May we advance Your Kingdom.
Human anatomy fascinates me to no end. Bone upon bone, muscle upon muscle, vein upon vein, we are intricate beings. Though we have a set stature for our bodies given to us through genetics, we still have the abilities to sculpt ourselves. As we shift through life/with life, we change. The tiniest event can twist a thought, the sweetest food could manipulate a body. Little, seemingly insignificant things, can impact our entire being in a significant way. I know nothing new has been said here that we don’t already know about ourselves, but perhaps if we take this basic idea that may/may not be thought about often by others, and we contemplate it even for a moment, we may discover something deeper within ourselves. We may discover just how precious our lives are, how delicate our existence is. If we come to that conclusion, then maybe we will ask ourselves, what we are truly living for…A sure purpose I believe, because something as fragile as ourselves, that gets beat down physically/emotionally by society each day, and still has a will power to survive (whether we are conscious of it or not), proves to me that we are existing for a much bigger reason than to just exist…

Your entire past and moments at hand are what makes you who are supposed to be. Though you’ve gone through a lot, look at how far you’ve come, shaped perfectly to be just as you are. All pain is used for the better. How can you use your circumstances to give hope to others??
If you fail to smile after reading this…I don’t even know what to say.
A shocking turn of events…
While riding my bike to work, a car, that I thought was paying attention, ended up slamming right into me. The whole thing happened rather quickly. The car hit me, I flew, and proceeded to run over my bike while getting even closer to my face. Luckily the car stopped and I was able to get up. The lady didn’t say much. I was so shaken from the incident I literally just got on my bike and left (I can’t explain my actions at that moment). Turns out my bike was really messed up although no physical damage was shown. Also, I came out of the whole thing with only a couple road rashed knees and whole new perspective I’d say…God spared my life at that moment I realized, but when it happened I wasn’t scared at all if I was about to die, not one bit. Right after the incident I was in shock I think and throughout the day tears kept flowing for some reason; there was no ceasing it. I was angry at what had happened, but I wasn’t asking WHY, more like WHAT am I supposed to do with this event now…I was contemplating it all day but I couldn’t come up with the reason for this, what epiphany was I supposed to have? But after I got home from work, the people I am staying with talked to me. They guy asked me how I was and all, and then I told him I am supposed to learn something from this…and he replied, “Well maybe it was just a sign for you to realize there could be no tomorrow, and that you should be doing exactly what you want to do and nothing less.” It was these words that really spoke to me. I came to the conclusion after praying as well, that I really need to start living my dreams now, because tomorrow may never come. And I want to feel like I lived up to my full potential and accomplished everything I needed in life. I want God to be pleased. I just wanted to share this so that maybe it would encourage everyone to realize that there is no right time but NOW to start living. Unfortunately, sometimes it takes a violent shove to point one in the right direction.
