Twenty Four Hours

You've just been told you have 24 hours to live, what do you do, do you cry and lay down and wait until your last breath is taken? Don't ask why you are dieing, lets just assume the causes are natural, or at the finale hour a bullet will end it all. But guess what it doesn't matter how it will end, the fact is that it will in 24 hours. 24 hours, again what would you do, spend time with your child or with your boo, tell me what would you do? It is funny how when time is placed on a situation how many step up to the plate to do their part but when there is no clock life is often taken for granted. If you had 24 hours to live how meaningful would that prayer be, how much more meaningful would that kiss be, how much more meaningful would looking at the stars be, especially knowing you will never see them again? How much more important will saying Mama I love you become, or Daddy I forgive you become? I wonder if Biggie knew he was in his last 24 what would he have done different or Tupac for that matter? I wonder if I knew that day July 19 that my best friend would set me up to get shot and I would end up in a wheel chair what would I have done differently those 24 hours before? And not to mention I died on my way to the Hospital. Enough about me and back to you honestly don't give me a deep answer tell me what would you do? Because the truth is no one knows when the day comes and they will be in there finale 24. (C)2009 (I Remain Titus Inspired By Life)

Image, Likeness, Breath

The Bible clearly points out that the Creator formed Adam in His image and likeness but it was not until He breathed into Adam that Adam became a living being. What is it to be in the image of and likeness of GOD and especially to have His breath running through you? I can only image the pleasure the Creator found looking at Adam function effectively naming the animals and even having enough Godly insight to call the beautiful specimen GOD pulled out of him woman and even after the fall Eve. But today what does it look like to be in the image and likeness of the creator and to have His breath flowing through you?? Is it good deeds, Sunday morning messages, or prosperity?? Is it I Love you because you love me, or feeling you are in a place to judge?? Is it because you think you look good, or your better than another?? My take on what it means to be in the image and likeness of GOD and to have His breath flowing through you is when you embrace the fact that your life is not your own, and that you are here for a greater purpose than you. Any charismatic person can stand and make a group of people feel good for an hour or two, but can you cause change? Any body can have sex, and have children but can you beyond the school system raise them to be great and not just successful? Can you look in the mirror at the person staring back at you and say I Love you, and in your own eyes see greatness and potential even when no one else is around to tell you? If you can answer any of these with yes then that is what it means to be in His image and likeness and to have His Breath flowing through you. Don't be a part time lover of GOD, you can not pick GOD up and put Him down like a tube of lipstick or a pair of Jordan's or a crack pipe. GOD needs to be recognized as a part of you like your heart beat, because without either you are dead. Family you have a reason to breath, and that reason is to change lives, but you can't do that if you don't recognize the purpose and power of your own life designed by the Creator. (C)2009
