truthful perceptions: gratitude…

img_0011-copy3

There are a million bits and pieces of information that make up the experiences of a Man’s life. Most are often forgotten in the blink of an eye. Others are much more traumatic, joyful, significant and mournful to the memories held on to for a lifetime.

The balance of equity for most men of integrity regardless of race, religious belief system or background is to practice either by the minute, the hour, the day or even once a week is a time of reflection to be thankful.

It costs nothing and yet yields the biggest personal returns. This is a character trait most promising to know that a poor man is made rich by it, and a rich man is made poor without it.

It grounds you in ways to keep you safe from the arrogance of the batterer mindset. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Pastor or a Police Officer, the arrogant mindset of the physical batterer and verbal abuser remain the same.

One of thinking he is untouchable by virtue of his vocation and somehow immune from any conviction of conscience because it is both neutralized and patronized by his service to the community.

That somehow his livelihood qualifies him to live a secretive lifestyle free of condemnation in beating his wife/intimate partner. Nothing could be further from the truth for we know the universal law speaks to the heart of the matter: “To whom much is given, much is required.”

So on this Thanksgiving Day, may we as men take the time to truly search our hearts for any level of abusive behavior we have towards our wife/intimate partner, and begin the changing process with the best weapon of all, gratitude…

truthful perceptions: opportunity

Russel-147

It is possible to be in this world, yet not of this world; as it matters less to a Man where he is born, than where he can live. Though we may be born in this world, the unceasing chaos, confusion, hatred and cruelty causes wonder as to who would intentionally desire to even claim this world as their own;

Abiding in and staying connected to GOD defines us as being not of this world; GOD lays a practical path for peace and balance for our walk of faith; The world will tell you to embrace Ur fears and magnify Ur insecurities while pushing you to Ur limits of sanity;

However, man’s adversity is GOD’s opportunity to call you out of this world; Whatever GOD calls you to do will always be bigger than you; Protect Ur thoughts at all costs; The mind is the battleground and what you meditate upon magnifies;

Keep the Word of GOD as Ur controlling source for positive thinking, because if you can’t win the battle in Ur mind, you can’t win the wars of this world in Ur life; Love Always & Keep Looking Up. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.
