As nice as it may seem to say that you don’t see color, we all are a certain color and and we all want to be seen. See me. See my black skin. See me as God created me. See me. Acknowledge that I am here. Hear my voice. Have respect for me. See me. See my black skin. I’m here! I MATTER!
Our life’s journey is going to be filled with great things, bad things and everything in between. Take all of it in. Use all of it. Treasure all of it. God is bringing you to and through each moment and each experience to draw you closer to Him. Walk with assurance that He is by your side and your loving guide through it all.
Sometimes we are afraid to ask questions. We might feel as though we are the only one who doesn’t know the answer. We may feel like we are going to annoy the person that we are asking the question to. But if there is something that you do not know the answer to or perhaps their is something that you want more information on, ASK! There is nothing wrong with being inquisitive!
Remember the Disney Film Aladdin and the hit song, A Whole New World? I love that song! I love the idea of looking for the new idea, the new method, the new place, the new relationship! So often, there are discoveries of great and wonderful things around us that we never see because we are staying safe: doing what we’ve always done. Try something new this week. Take a look at a new restaurant that’s close to home. Try a new grocery store. Introduce yourself to a neighbor a few block over. Learn more about the world you are in right now! Have fun!
