Share A Piece of The Peace
By:Carl Johnson II
I was writing something totally different this morning when duty called. My kids came to me and showed me that they have gotten a rash. All types of new things are popping up since we moved. Different environments bring out all types of reactions parents so be ready, as people who have moved lots due to career we know this to be gospel.
But It is moments like this when I feel most connected, I feel like a man because I am going to get this issue fixed. I will get my kids to the doctor and even for being able to do that I feel blessed. I have insurance and we are blessed enough to have money in the bank for medicine if needed and these kids only have a rash. It could be much worse than this and I know it because I have experienced it.
This is our life in the midst of kids and families in Africa, the Middle East and right here in our own backyard suffering of poverty, hunger and disease. I know there are parents who are sitting in the children’s hospitals throughout this country watching their babies fight for life.
I pray for them in this this moment and this place. I say lord take some of my peace and give a piece to some other loving soul out there that is struggling and fighting the fight as they search for your light. Lord drop them this some of this seed.
If you have been given a harvest and blessed with the seeds, know that you may live on the land but you do not own the deed. You living on the land for free is based on the deeds you do with the seeds. #CarlTheMuse
I know this and I live in humble appreciation for these delicate gifts that he keeps blessing me with. This rash is serves as nothing more than a reminder to me.
I have been blessed enough in this life to help anyone that I can who is in need. I feel obligated to give what was given to me. I feel obligated to teach this lesson to my seeds. This is the lesson my mother taught me.
So yes this is another day that I feel this way.
I have more reasons to say thank you, than I have things to ask for when I pray.
The thought should be on your blessings today, say thank you for yours and use the prayer today for some other soul who is enduring a storm as they try to hold on to hope and faith, pray for some sun to shine their way.
