Stand the test of Time

“You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That’s a part of it.” – Denzel Washington

“Though i fall, i will rise again. The lord will be my light.” – Micah 7:8


It’s a message in everything. That message can be as small as hope shining a pebble in the gloom. Our day to day contributions are never insignificant. It’s all in how we perceive it; we can’t hold optimism while berating our own judgement. Our minds are a sanctum. It’s the intangibles within it that craft us. There’s no room to be skeptical when our world temporarily falls apart. Hey, that’s how the ball bounces at times. Rainy days aid the harvest; the sunlight shines until it’s thoroughly ready at its peak. Yin and yang. Defeat is not final. Charge it to the game. Make up for those failures, execute more, learn from the mistakes, and don’t let the same lesson happen again. How can we let a situation strip us of the blueprints God has given us by trial and error? Our window of opportunity is there to increase our sense of urgency. An urgency to remind us how trivial it is in letting a  moment of failure replace what is yet to still come. Life is the greatest tutor in teaching us to stand the test of time. It’s a daily battle to reach the pinnacle of our aspirations. Because when we fall, we can pick right back up where we left off; like clockwork. We are not able to know how something will end by the way it starts; only when we finish through to the end. That’s the enigma of life in a nutshell. Outlast a testament, reap the reward.


“I think that we can make it, in fact I’m sure; and if you fall, stand tall, and come back for more.” – Tupac

“Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” – Ecclesiates 7:8
