Precious Ability

Precious Ability:

The brain - the instincts -- the beauty-- the health - the years-- the courage.
I thank him who "has all power" for these gifts by using them.!
the compassion- the creativity- the passion- the love - the wisdom
I thank him for these gifts by sharing what I have with my fellow man.
All the gifts- all the attributes endowed unto me, gives me the power to act
feel, and rise to the occasion. I will not wait on God to intervene.
When he has created me in his own image- and has sent me equipped with the armor to battle all the causes- and wars and atrocities done against my fellow man. I have the precious ability to discern what is in front of me to do.
I will not turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to the mis-doings -killings-and abuses
done to any of his creations. I will not determine what God's will is ..but as I know what my ears are for- and as I know what my teeth are for - I know also what he has equipped me to do-
And I certainly will not ignore the truth of any matter for to ignore the truth is Ignor -ance. no more than deception that keeps you in a trance- Coward's waiting for God to do What he sent hue-mans to do..when ever my creator see's me slipping This question enters my mind. and I paraphrase
"How can you ignore your brother's suffering and say you love me whom you 
have never seen" ? .. Some people will give a" cripple crab a crutch" - but will not speak up against the killings of blacks,children or the needy - or even give a "hungry human some humus". 
my brain, my health, my wealth ,my knowledge- my courage - my compassion - my passion-should all (I pray) " be used for the betterment of .and the upliftment of my fellow man. I start by looking in the closest corner to shine my light, as Long as have the precious ability to do so. And when I no longer can do my part, I pray
that I have given someone the "precious ability" to carry on .. to carry-on.
