Reaction

Cause and effect is a concept we all know very well.
Something we were taught back when we were learning about math, reading, & how to spell.
A very simple idea backed by a non-complicated thought.
Everything that is done will have a result.
No comment won’t be heard
and no action will not hit a mark.
No touch won’t be felt
and no facial expression will not be seen from afar.
Life is like a domino effect
and it never ends.
That’s why everything is attached
leading to one’s ending helping another begin.
So, with this being said
and being broken down into terms more layman,
think about how much power lies in your reaction.
See, the strength is not in what one gives,
but in what you do with what you receive.
It makes a difference between if you will rise like Mary
or fall like Eve.
It is the decider between success and failure
Between victory and defeat.
It chooses if rejoicing in what was or what could’ve been
is where you will be.
So be careful what you choose to participate in 
and be your action
because nothing is as strong as the power of reaction.

Relationships: Cause and Effect

In our world, there is always something that has an effect or influence on something else. Some call it “cause and effect”. Others call it the “domino effect”. At the end of the day, everything has a pull on something else.

Now, it took me time and experiences to learn this. From my having a rough morning leading to me going off on a classmate to my not studying regularly resulting to having to cram for a test the night before, various small things in my life showed me this.

However, the greatest thing that proved this to me was witnessing connections I had with others affect other relationships in my life.

My having issues with and disrespecting my mom lead to others not wanting to deal with me. My not being on the best terms with my father led me to thirst, and I do me thirst, for a boyfriend.

I wanted to have a “man” so bad a guy smiling at me made me wonder if he’d be the one. It is only the grace of God that I still have my virtue.

The funniest thing is, as much as these situatio…

Expectations: Things Aren't Always What They Seem

If you were to ask me one of the top things I have learned about myself it would be that I can have unrealistic expectations.

I know it may seem a little weird that I'm “coming at myself” right now, but you can't help others find their way if you're lying about some of your own obstacles.

From a very young age I had a very sweet, “fairy-tale” view of life. My parents were together back then & didn't let me see their fights, so I thought their marriage was perfect.

My dad was popular in our community & everyone loved me cause I was his cute, smart daughter, so I didn't deal much with bullying and such.

On top of it all I loved God and was told various times that He was going to use me.

Life was pretty much perfect cause it was all going my way.

I didn't know the true weight of the statements & prophecies about God using me. I expected for life to be easier because of that. Boy was I wrong.

If only I had looked at the numerous individuals who’d seen …

Temptation: Not More Than You Can Bare

You know, when you grow up in church you see a lot of stuff frequently. From choirs singing to people passing around offering plates to even children scribbling on paper. You just become used to seeing some stuff.

You get used to hearing stuff too, like scriptures. Yeah, there are definitely some verses that you hear on a regular from, “For God so loved the world…,” (John 3:16) to, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart…,” (Proverbs 3:5 - 6) to even “The Lord is my shepherd…” (Psalm 23:1)

One in particular that I continue to hear frequently is 1 Corinthians 10:13, which is the inspiration for the phrase, “He won't put more on you than you can bare.”

Now when you look at that scripture, even though it does not exactly say the phrase above, it hits a few different areas that truly will blow your mind.

First off, it begins with, “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience…,” (1 Corinthians 10:13a)

When you just think on that thing...The fact that regar…
