The Blessings of a New Beginning

In opposition to social injustice Colin Kapernick took a knee To bring national attention to Black American police brutality But an unexpected result was Eventually affected Colin was black balled From the NFL he was rejected But what most people can't seem To simply comprehend Is that God will always cover and Look out for His children Uncertain of what his future Would be Unsure of how to earn a salary But the blessings of a new beginning For Colin did arise He received an endorsement From Nike and from Harvard A prestigious prize Don't allow society to ever box you in And don't accept anyone telling you You don't have what it takes to win For when God designed you It wasn't to be one dimensional You're more than linear You're multi- purposeful For God's turning power Can rotate 180° degrees God's turning power Has omnipotency Endurance during transition God wants us to stay true And cleave to our convictions No matter what we have to go through And yes there will be some heartache, Tragedy and pain There will be metaphorical tornadoes Hurricanes and torrential rain But out of the carnage A blessing will emerge As God needs to get our attention So He stages a purge In order for a new beginning To now take place As a reminder of His Infinite power, mercy and grace Just don't take for granted All that God has given to you As answered prayers and actualized Possessions aren't your due So put your pride to the side And don't ever forget That you didn't give life to yourself It was God's Holy Spirit Yes there are somethings Of which which you have no control Just don't create situations That can cause you to lose your soul And most of all allow nothing To separate you from God In the midst of your chaos Keep Him in your heart As divine activities always Manifest in the dark of night Just hold on, keep praying For the morning brings A new beginning with its light Yes the blessings of a new beginning Will surely come As only God can turn it around When all is said and done
