8Mile

Recently I’ve felt a bit distracted with the general routine of my life
Knowing what i need to do and not getting around to do it
I suppose this is where i need to sit down and ask myself some questions then make some adjustments
I believe we all have our own strategies for motivating ourselves but there are times i recognise the need to change those strategies

On reflection I feel fortunate to blog with people like the wordpress community, helping me to be better at what I’m trying to achieve, thank you all

Once a colleague said

“The reason God gave us four seasons is to prepare for change”

yea sounds great! what Comes to mind in this statement is the need for “preparation” reminds me of the ant colony how they prepare to accommodate changes for the coming season.

I know what your thinking , how do you prepare when something is unexpected ?
I suppose that’s the 8mile I’m talking about the divide between what I choose when something presents itself to me or what circumstances could over ride my choices. This is a journey that i or you can only walk, These defining moment shows us what we depend or rely on ,if we believe and who we believe in

Jesus, in his defining moment cried

“father if it’s possible take this cup away”

This was his portion to bear but after some deep soul searching he conceded to his destiny only to please his father.

The last speech of Martin Luther King JR ,delivered 3 April 1968, Mason Temple ,Memphis, Tennessee

Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop.

And I don’t mind.

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!
And so I’m happy, tonight.

I’m not worried about anything.

I’m not fearing any man!

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!

This defining moment resonates courage, faith and sacrifice not for himself like Jesus but for the liberty of humanity

So what do I take out of this! well My 8mile
represent my process , my decisions and my destiny, no longer a divide of what I can or can’t do, believe regardless of what others are doing, just do the will of God and he will be with you and me through the “8mile”

don’t allow what comes your way define you.
