I Told You That: APPAREL Do you see the kid on the left? More importantly do you see that grin on his face......what if I told you that was fake? In fact, what if I told you that picture was taken one week from being removed from my home and sent to live with my Aunt in Florida? You see that kid on the left knew what true helplessness felt like....he knew what it meant to feel lost, scared, depressed, and knew what it was like to feel like his life was already over before it even started. He even began to believe the lie that maybe just maybe the world would be better off without him in it. He lost his friends, his home, his girlfriend, and just about anything else you can imagine as a high school teenager..... You see the depression knows no age, race, gender, political or sexual preference....it is unbiased in that regard and it can touch anyone at any time that it wants. Yet even in his darkest times and darkest moments....when he was on a path to nothing and curious if he would ever amount to anything more than just that.....NOTHING! Proverbs 16:3 saved his life! Now, 14 years later, that broken shell of a boy has been heard by 1 BILLION people! He has been able to travel the world and meet tens of thousands of people asking him daily how to push through and what keeps him going?! Life is truly funny that way! The point? The point is simply this.....if you are struggling and if life truly seems like it is at its darkest and you feel lost, alone, or hopeless. Trust me when I say that where you are now is preparing you for where you need to go and who you need to be! You can go from the weakest to the strongest before you know it! Your life has VALUE and you MATTER more than you will ever know! So fight for what is to come! Not always what currently is! If a kid from nowhere MS and a broken home can make anything of himself....SO CAN YOU! To this day, I still struggle with feelings of being good enough or whether or not I should be here.....those feelings never truly go away. BUT I choose life and the journey that life is!!! Because trust IT IS WORTH IT!! So choose to fight....ALWAYS! -Graham🇺🇸 motivation throwbackthursday faith family life

I Told You That: What if I told you that waiting on Jesus to return is a deception to distract you from iscovering Christ within you? What if I told you that who you are waiting on, is waiting for you?: For those asking me what I believe in. I would be trapped by a religion… But the way my spirituality is set up.. LetMeExplain: What is the Difference Between Religion and Spirituality? Religion keep us from seeing ourselves as a manifestation of God the way a wave is an extension of an ocean. Moving beyond religion leads us to the greatest freedom we can know: the freedom to be who we are — creative agents for justice and compassion. Religion is often about who’s in and who’s out, creating a worldview steeped in “us against them.” Spirituality rejects this dualism and speaks of us and them. Religion is a man-made device and is often about loyalty to institutions, clergy, and rules. Spirituality is about loyalty to justice and compassion. Religion talks about God. Spirituality helps to make us godly. The two need not be at odds. However the religious folks often become radicals. More people have been killed over religious beliefs than any other reason in history. I study all beliefs from all cultures and I utilize whatever does not insult my soul. There is good and valuable knowledge and truth in all ancient texts. I also prefer spirituality because it allows me to have a personal relationship with my creator vs religion forcing you to go thru pastors and clergy and relies more on the monetary system for support making it vulnerable to greed and quests for power by the leaders.
