People have tried to tell my story in their words;
words of lies,
words of deception,
words of deceit,
words of slander,
words of anger,
words of jealously,
words of malice,
words of evil,
words of injustice,
words of corruption,
but NOW its time for me to tell MY STORY in my own words…..
I have been quite for too long to wait for my turn to talk. This is the reason why I have started this blog but is not the reason why I will continue with this story.
I shall be true to myself, I shall use my God given talent and skill to use this platform as a daily, weekly and monthly story to share my thoughts as they come to me, in no particular chronological order, perhaps sometimes not even in logical sequence but always inspired by my heart who has never lied to me. In doing so I know it will set the record straight, I know in doing so it will leave a permanent true record for my posterity to remember me and I PRAY that in doing so it will inspire and uplift you the reader to have hope, to carry on, to fight to the end, to endure the battle of life, to be tested in the refiners fire, to have faith in knowing that in the end all things work for the good and lastly I hope it will leave you with rich words of encouragement, kindness, benevolence, consideration, humility, perseverance, tenacity, goodness, virtuous, patience, determination, charity and the most important of all love. (my wife always told me love would conquer the world). If you know you are doing what is right and what is good then never give up!
This story that I am going to write is not an intellectual debate, nor is it a philosophical argument and although it is neither a religious sermon nor biblical account, I want you to know that my bible is very special to me as it contains the word of God which gives me great peace, joy and gratitude! This is simply going to be the story of my life, the daily struggles I face as a mere mortal man, the unfettered truth of what I stand for and believe in, it is how God gave me a life and then a second chance to live again, its about how I can make a difference in the world and how I can leave the world a better place than when I found it, its about whose life I can have a positive impact in, its about who I can give a hand up to, its about being grateful and this is the secret of my life. This is the secret of my story.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
