The Lord says that if you have faith, you can tell a mountain to pick up and move and it will. Of course we all struggle with that. Because, well, obvious reasons! The mountains aren't moving when I yell at them! Are they moving for you?
I lost sight of all the things I had learned and resumed the struggle of "what is best" versus "what works best for me". So back down that learning road I had to go because once again I was spending so much time worrying about what is best or ideal that I often got lost and made the wrong decisions.
The tiny population of adult bullies of the world are trying to pressure the rest of us into silence. They hate our faith, our ideas, our freedom, our rights and want us to surrender them.
Hopefully we can spark some change on the web by returning to this language. It's been separate language for a long time, but in today's climate I think we need to return to calling it what it is. Racism.
Sometimes we even take the time to say to ourselves "how did I get here?". Or "Why did I let myself get this far?". And often enough there is a clear point where we crossed the line and that was when everything went south for us.
