When you believe.....

Who knows what miracles you can achieve. . . 

Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

Music has and continues to be a source of inspiration, hope and light for me.  
It is something that I cannot do without, because it helps me to get past or get through all of the things that I think that I cannot get past or get through.  Granted everyone has problems and everyone never feels 100% percent at the best of times.  If you can avoid having to deal with other people's problems as much as possible - that is the beginning of the rest of your life.  There will always be things to be scared of.  There will always be people who will try and intimidate you and knock you off course.  You just don't need to stick around to let anything happen to you.  It's as simple as that.  What mountains have you been able to move without knowing you could?

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe

Do you believe in miracles?
It can be hard to believe in anything, even yourself, when you don't have faith that you can do anything.  If we let any doubts or take into account the negative stereotypes and oppressive language that people use to describe us - then we will tend to believe them, Especially if we don't know any other way of living and being in this world.  You might get frustrated when people ask you for opinions and when you give it, they pretend to listen.  They might not take on board what you have to say, but that's ok.  If you have to keep repeating yourself, they actually don't have the ears to really hear you, or lack the intelligence to see situations as they are for themselves.  It isn't your job to make them see, they have their own eyes for that.  You can only do what you can do, and refocus on your own priorities, your own goals that you have let fall by the wayside because your heart has been busy trying to get theirs in order.  

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speakin' words 
I never thought I'd say

The greatest knowledge of yourself comes when you start to speak words and messages that you haven't had to filter when you think about it.  Trust the anointing spirit that allows you to speak those words and messages to others.  People will rely on you to give guidance and support where they should be doing so for themselves.  Hope may seem seasonal because you stopped believing in what you have always deserved, what you have believed in your heart is the pathway to a road that you must prepare for others to walk.  It's challenging going through this on your own and it's understandable if you want to push everyone away.  There continues to be danger that lurks at every corner so you must continue to stay vigilant.  It can get tiring but this is your life now.  I'm not saying that you need to accept it, but it's important to acknowledge the obstacles and not dwell so much on it.  

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fears
But when you're blinded by pain
Can't see the way, get through the rain
A small but still resilient voice
Says hope is very near, oh 

I continue to hope because that is all I can do.
There are people out there that wish to harm me because I have eluded them, I have outsmarted them at their own game,  I don't gloat about it.  In fact, it makes me more resilient and understand that I have come unscathed because there is still more important work to do, there is still more pressing and demanding tasks ahead, all part of a greater mission that I was born to deliver that I cannot deny - no matter how many times I want to give up, no matter how many times other obstacles are thrown in my path to distract me from my destination.  I will always be grateful for the journey and the learning along the way with seasonal people. stacked with treasonous acts who only react in ways for self preservation.  In a world where you can sometimes only rely on yourself to be the resilient voice, that's all I can hope for and come to know.  All of it can be yours to hold, right there in the palms of your hands when you believe. . .
