SUNrise: cj speaks…  Life is fluid

Life is fluid with so many changes, spins, and turns.  One day you see life with not a care in the world, then you turn around and in the blink of an eye, and your negative thoughts have just taken over.  You become lost and confused and start to believe that you are not good enough and that you are not going to make it.  It is then critical to remind yourself that life is a phenomenon, a very strong phenomenon, full of positive things that can happen: things that you can do, places you can go, and hopes that can become your desires.

As life changes daily, you want to move with those changes, too.  When you look into your mirror and contemplate the places that you want to go, you need to make the right choices to help you reach those goals, and to reach the epitome of whatever it is you set your mind to do.  It could be something as simple as a small portion of your time that you are willing to sacrifice for your loved one, a 365-day commitment of your tithes and offerings to God or your child’s Saturday morning dance lessons.  

The fluidity of your daily walk defines your life — its movements, its ups and downs, its joys and its pains..  Life was never promised to always be exciting and happy, but your joyful days can help you to feel the goodness, regardless of how bad things may be, or how uncertain things are.  As you walk with God holding your hand, remember He allowed you to make it through the last time, so don’t fret as He walks with you again this time — whatever that may look like.  

Try not to interfere with the fluidity of your life — don’t allow its flow to become jammed up, stopped up, and clogged.  Allow the flow to be free — to be full of God’s goodness through the fruits of your labor.  Sometimes we allow those avenues and those hurdles to interfere with that flow, and we sit down, cry, or may even knock something out because of our anger, only to turn around the next day to say, “I must do better,” “I need to make a better choice,” “I need to try something different,” or  “ I want the flow of my life to always be ongoing.”

Changes and disappointments — that’s a part of life. Those changes can actually blossom into great outcomes; those disappointments can become stepping stools pivoting your next outcome of goodness.  So, let’s wipe that frown off our faces, and let’s just sit and breathe —  just breathe, and know that the fluidity in your life is God centered.  He will not let you falter; He will not let you stumble without holding your hand.  All things are possible with God as your guide in everything you do.  

Allow those “no’s” to become “yes’s” and when those “yes’s” sometimes become “no’s,” know that God is there with you.  He will not allow you to come this far just for you to turn away and turn around.  He is with you, audience, each and every step of your day.  Allow your life to flow freely —  it is okay if it seeps over, because then you might help someone else’s life flow.. Just always remember to be your best and do everything in excellence, by drip and drop. Until next time… PEACE!
