When I look at my son I think of how he’s depending on me. I came too far to give up. I have the next generation in my arms. I can’t change everything but I have to remain strong for him. If not too many people follow the way at least I need to show him the way. He’s going to be a God fearing man. I want him to know that in this cruel world physically He has me but spiritually and mentally He has something way bigger always with him; God. I don’t want him to make the same mistake I did when I can guide him. I don’t want him to ever feel like he has to walk through the valleys by himself like I did. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalms 23:4 NKJV)
Life is so beautiful and it took me to go through things to realize that. I was living in survival mode for so long because before I knew Jesus my mindset was “If I don’t do it for myself nobody will.” However God showed me otherwise and why would I question Him now? He never let me down… I know all things are working for our good. Everything I need to raise my son I am already equipped with on the inside. God already knew this storm was coming since before I got in it.“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV) I will try my best to show Him that Jesus is love. I want my son to spread love wherever he goes.
Before the world tries to break him down I want him to know all he needs is the armor of God. . 13 “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints” (Ephesians 6: 13-18 NKJV)
