“I’m grateful for all the Christians—who have shared their light with me, all these past years, so that mine, wouldn’t dim. I’m thankful for all the non-believers—who have tolerated my little light to shine upon them, too. I pray for all—who have received “the Light Of Christ” to also find gratitude in their hearts.” By: ElRoyPoet, 2022
Commentary: In order “to take a leap forward”, I must acknowledge that I have a past. In order “to be born again”, I need to accept that I was dead in sin. It takes courage to progress, you must come to the sad realization that your life is stagnant and going nowhere, you must admit that you’re a fraud—who is just trying to “keep up appearances”. We need to learn from history, even to the point of being grateful for all those ordeals we’ve had to endure. Only then can we appreciate all the work Jesus and His Disciples; and our fore fathers did, on our behalf. Can you imagine what our lives would’ve been like, if we didn’t have the Bible and the Constitution to help us govern ourselves? Heaven forbid!
