moving forward after 2016

 

 

The year 2016 was a year to remember to say the least is quite an understatement. The U.S, as a whole took a huge amount of L’s this year. We lost people like David Bowie(69) , Maurice White (74), Phife Dawg(45), P R I N C E  (57), Glenn Frey (67) and to add insult to injury just days before the close of the year we lost George Michaels at age 53.  These artists did a lot to shape today’s culture and some would argue were losing sight of what they started. Yet that was only the tip of the iceberg to hit the Titanic that is 2016. Not only did we lose important faces in our culture, but at times we lost faith in our culture itself.

According to Huffington Post the US Police have shot and killed at least 194 black people in the year 2016. We’ve cried until we had no tears to cry and we have blocked out surroundings some days in order to protect our peace. Some of us saw this brokenness that hit us a little more close up than others being that they happened in some of our home towns and right where some of us live. The hurt was traumatic. How do we move forward from such an experience?  How did they move on before us?

I can’t neglect to mention this years Presidential election and all that it took us through emotionally. The uncertainty and the dividing of us based on difference of opinions and whom each of us supported or didn’t support. America as a whole suffered quite a few wounds this year from the Presidential election single-handedly. That statement became true when the election ended and President Elect Donald J. Trump won the election. This post is not to argue an opinion. This post is not to rekindle any feelings. This post is solely for us to reflect.

Many of us pushed through all of these things happening in our nation while simultaneously juggling certain issues in our families, health,and mental space. Whether it be a not so successful school semester/ start of your business, loss of a family member/friend, bad break ups, or surprise health scares.   Take the time right now to pat yourselves on the back. you made it through all of this and you are still in your right mind. I’m proud of you brother, and I’m so proud of you sister. You didn’t give up. Sure you may have wanted to but even despite hat fact you are still here. We had great times too even If short-lived do not neglect to reflect on those times as well.

         We have exactly seven days left. Next Monday will be the January 2nd 2017. Let us take time to learn the lessons but release the anger. Let us take time to smile because we made it but not to stop there but to pray, fast and prepare for greatness in 2017, God’s definition of greatness, eyes that see and ears that hear. This year may be one of the hardest to let go of emotionally but when we live in past we do not operate adequately in the present and that is the last thing we need in 2017.

If you have any prayer requests for the new calendar year I would love to stand in prayer for you. If you have an Inter-dependent Story you’d like to share for your 2016 please do.  leave those with me. My prayer is that we become aware of what goes on around us and within us but remain at peace knowing that Jehovah Ezer is our help. I had a very interesting 2016 myself and I was led to just take time to go incognito and just pour out some things to the father.. things I don’t want to take with me into 2017 and I praise God for restoration of all things. He’s doing a new thing. He told the people in Isaiah 43 to forget the former things of old because of the new thing, and then He turned right around in Isaiah 46 and said remember the former things of old for I am God and there is none else. In other words ,”don’t worry bout what they done to you just focus on what I done for you. “

I look forward to #HeISmyCrutch2017 I love you all! stay tuned!
