Vulnerable transparency post!
My just released memoir is titled:
Cowboys Are Not Supposed to Cry
So why is that the past few days I have been on the edge of tears?
There is so much going on in my life right now both personally and professionally, more to come on that later.
Not to mention the chaotic and confusing world we find ourselves living in right now. But like the Ringo Kid (John Wayne) said in Stagecoach
“Well, there are some things a man just can’t run away from. “
My friends I am not running but I am being wise as every warrior must be if they are to survive and thrive. May God bless you. Stay strong and remember sometimes even the strongest cowboys cry.
There are changes coming my friends. Perhaps some for the better and some for the worse. Who knows?
I cannot see that far in the future to know what may come. There is one who does because he is already there and that is where I choose to place my trust.
These changes will irrevocably change us as we move forward.
Because as the Ringo Kid (John Wayne) said in Stagecoach, there are some things you just can’t run away from. 👊
In the end do not become someone who you never were. #Quote #Poetry #Encouragement #MotivationTweet
Be you, for if you are not no one else could be.
A recent experience led me towards becoming someone who I am not. Through the grace and mercy of Yah and my beautiful wife I have been comforted by Holy Spirit in gentle correction from the lies I was allowing myself to believe.
Now I am holding on the truth of who I was created to be and my destiny. I am claiming the blood of Yeshua over my heart and actions, purposing to follow and live my dreams moving forward.
Now I encourage you to believe in the one who came so that we may have life abundantly. Now go and ⬇️
I encourage you to rise up might warrior. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is still a dream and today is there right in front of us to grasp. Go forth in strength and love, in joy and faith and live your dreams!
You are the HERO of your life’s story, who else could be? #MondayMotivation #Encouragement #YouMatter #LiveYourDreamsTweet
What one thing will you do to seize today and live your dreams?
I admit in the time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 virus, stay at home orders, social distancing and the conflicting news reports I struggle with my own anxiety. Each day when I awake is another occasion to rise up as a warrior despite the fears that may come.
It is a time of not knowing what or who to believe. So, I will chose to put my trust in this…
And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.” ~Mark 9:23Tweet
And if this is true, all things are possible, then I cry out with this refrain.
“I do believe; help my unbelief.” ~Mark 9:24Tweet
The world tells us you to be, what to do and what say. The world lies because our enemy lies and we so easily believe those lies when we are called to be warriors.
In the words of John Lovell, founder of the Warrior Poet Society
Warrior Poets are those who train and fight for higher purpose. Warrior Poets become students of the art of war so that they may triumph when the enemy calls. ~John Lovell #WarriorPoetSociety #WPSN #QuoteTweet
I have shed many tears over the years. Tears of sadness and heartbreak and tears of joy. Tears do not make one weak, they reveal our hearts.
Jesus wept. ~John 11:35Tweet
Here’s to the fighters, the dreamers, the doers and those who will stand up. May we all find ourselves strengthen during this time and at all times. May we seek those who are hurting and reach out a hand. May we rest in the promises of the one who is yet to come.
Do not hide who you were created to be and do not let the world break you, for you are so much more than ordinary! ~M #Quote #Motivation #Encouragement #WarriorPoetTweet
