An Open Letter

I am an Overcomer, but I have help.


The goal of Sunday Soul-Lutions has always been and is a weekly reminder for all of us to remember:  You are not your behavior. You are not your struggle. You are not your worst mistake. You are not your past. You are not what has been done to you. There is a difference between where you have been and who you are now. These are some of the many subjects I have written about over the years.


The reality is when there is any good, any sense of peace, joy or happiness that dots through our lives is because God is good. If God held back the restraint against evil in this world, then we would see what trouble there really would be with no God.


It is easy for us to blame God when things are horrible or make no sense. For believers and non-believers, it is easy to ask, “Where are you God?” He is everything for everybody every time. He is everywhere. He is God. God is in the midst of every struggle, and that is who you belong to, you are who your Father says you are.


Your faith matters. I am not talking about casually going to church. God is always present; he is there; he will never leave us nor forsake us. This is when being a believer is important when you actually have a thing with the Lord. If you do not, hopelessness will be pervasive in your life. It will overwhelm you, and the burden is all yours.


The idea that we were each born with some higher purpose, and now it is our cosmic mission to find it does not seem logical. Here is the truth. We exist on this earth for some undetermined period. During that time, we do things. Some of these things are important. Some of them are unimportant. The essential stuff gives our life meaning and happiness. The unimportant ones kill time.


I am on my way somewhere. I am passing through, and I am going to do what God is calling me to do. I am going to stay afloat with the hope, peace and joy that is internal, so when everything else is going haywire externally, I do not have to go haywire. In my house, we can have peace even when the world does not. Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.


You will not know your exact path, but connecting with your why will help you unearth it. If you are feeling stuck because you do not understand your life purpose, please hear me when I say, “Nobody knows his or her exact path.”


Remember to keep the circle positive, peaceful and loving ©
