Don’t stress about the closed doors behind you. New doors are opening if we keep moving forward!!! AMEN!!!
Van Beethoven was told that he was hopeless as a composer and started losing his hearing in 1796 but continued to compose masterpieces!
Abraham Lincoln lost his job (1832), failed in business (1833) and was defeated in eight elections (1838 – 1858)! Thomas Edison’s teacher told him he was “too stupid to learn anything”. Also, he stated that he “discovered six thousand ways that won’t work” while developing the light bulb.
Walt Disney was fired, as his boss found he “lacked imagination”. Later, MGM studios told him that the idea of Mickey Mouse would not work; a giant mouse would scare women.
Steven Spielberg was placed in a class for learning-disabled children before he dropped out of school forever
The Beatles were turned down by their recording company telling them that “[ . . . ] guitar music is on their way out”.
Michael Jordan was cut from the high-school basketball team as he was “lacking skill”.
Their mistakes allowed them to become geniuses, inventors and idols they have become. I know how hard it is to fail, some of my failures were emotionally painful and made it even harder for me to get back up, get out of bed, to start over. Some failures hit us so hard in the stomach that we find it hard to breathe. Failure for me is like an uninvited stranger that appears out of nowhere. These failures are the hardest to recover from, to get back up. The unexpected!!! It affects your spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and financials.
We must take a deep breath, maybe 100 deep breaths, breathe again and pray we are stronger than all our yesterdays. Find the inner strength to trust God, ask for help from the right people, start over once again. This start over might be the one that gets us to our finish line. I can tell you from my personal experience. Doing nothing, giving up will get us nowhere!!! Just close those doors! New doors are opening if we keep moving forward!!! AMEN!!!

In the young mind and heart of a child, there’s a sort of “wet cement” and the impressions that are made there harden over time. Racism, in any form, is a learned trait (you never see infants or toddlers avoiding each other in the nursery because of skin tone). Whenever we categorize a group of people as a nameless, faceless mass of color (whether the color be white, brown or something else), we’re stripping away the humanity of people and committing the sin of racism and we’re teaching our kids to do the same.
Racism hurts people, but we can’t seem to get past it. We can’t seem to find ways to have honest, healthy conversations about issues of race. We can’t celebrate a sense of unified brotherhood through our beautiful differences -
