we are all struggling with something.
everyone of us needs answers.
people try to ack like they so tough,
but get them alone or drunk,
and they’ll sing like canaries.
my struggle right now is having more faith.
in times like this,
they say my faith needs to be the size of a mustard seed.
well it seems to be the size of a particle of sand.
ever since i’ve been in this struggle,
ive been trying to find something to keep me with hope.
so my bible randomly fell off the shelf today.
scared the shit out of me.
when it hit the floor,
a card fell out of it.
when i looked,
i remember why i put it there…
so i’m not a bible thumper.
i don’t think i’ll ever go all “holy ghost and latter day saints”.
not with my mind and sexual energy.
i remember i was in a struggle a couple years ago.
not as bad as this one.
my homegirl’s mama gave me a call and wanted to try to uplift me.
well in our talk,
she mentioned the scripture,
1 chronicles 4:10.
“the prayer of jabez“:
she said when she was going through some spiritual warfare,
she meditated on that verse,
and whatever she was struggling with soon came to pass.
well i did what she recommended and i ended up getting my last job.
something about that scripture is powerful.
a little flame can cause an inferno.
a seed can create a tree bearing tons of fruit.
maybe a little scripture can cause a huge blessing?
