As the Days pass, and the story gets longer, and as I continually grow stronger. The more I realize I require a day away for self-examination. Time with the Lord, time where I just wait with Him and allow Him to speak to me and clarify my destination. The pursuit is for others or is this pursuit for my own spiritual growth. How is it I got here; torn between doing what He told me and showed me and doing what others say I should do? The perception is that it couldn't be deception, perhaps it is only another one of the enemies distractions. There's satisfaction in accomplishment but what is it all for? Should I be doing less, could I be doing more? The door is open to exit, and the pathway is open for continuation. What I need is time with my Father to see the direction He is directing me to apprehend. The Pathway is full of serving Him, and the door is full of serving Him. I will serve Him no matter what I do, but I want to serve Him how He wants me to. It's true the challenges I face they 're unlike the ones others face, but they are similar because we all have choices we have to make. I'm a minister in training and a minister in action. The situation is my training is delaying my execution. I've heard that preparation is never lost time, and I know God is a restorer of all things lost for His sake. Just decided to share these thoughts on this decision I need to make.

Sitting here thinking about what can I do to continue this path that I've started. Not willing to quit, but some times it gets hard to press through with the clear stance of failure. Wouldn't want to be the one to accept defeat as the final destination but for reasons beyond explaining this situation is what it is. Trouble is always on the horizon and discipline is still needed. Strength and focus and willingness all require self-control, diligence is as well. There's not any successful forward motion without friction and what about clear direction. Open to suggestions, open for accountability partners, but what if their not disciplined, then where do I go. Now, what do I do? Spiritually I'm straight but scholastically, and financially there's a struggle from the choices in the past. When do the new decisions begin to overcome the old ones? Toiling in the field but not getting the yield from the stock concerning positivity? Was the early life so full of blunders that the dues now are too great? Dealing with the pressures of judgment and pressing through for better little over seven years, back and forth with disappointments. Time for some prayer, it's always about seeking His face for peace. Spent a few days off maybe about two weeks.

The time spent with Him was well worth the experience, learned so much and decided to share it also. Growth by Choice is the place where you can examine and follow. Going to acknowledge that this Rising Staircase has evolved and will move progressively, but only seldomly will it be added to. Trust and know that there will always be weekday encouragement found on Growth by Choice, and here will track the levels on growth and there will show how the growth is occurring. Remember it is our choice that allows us to live free from grief agony, pain, and defeat. We don't have to live in the past, and we don't have to struggle with life's inevitable circumstances. We can go to God who will always cause us to advance and overcome because that's what He specializes in. The Good News is although things happen, with Jesus, we always win in the end. Peace, Love, and Joy are only the beginning there's an abundance of wisdom, encouragement, teaching, coaching, and whatever you need when you make a decision that you will trust and believe in He that waits for you to come home. Don't live a life full of questions that only cause more issues, leading you to be confused, make a choice to go to the one who has created both you and me. He waits for the day that you invite Him into your heart. Grab hold of the word and visit the tenth chapter of Romans, the eighth verse tells you how close He is to you, just as close as the words that come out of your mouth to make the confession in verse nine that you can undoubtedly be saved. As long as you make that confession and believe in your heart and say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, then just like verse ten states, this leads to salvation. Continue with this reading of the bible, pray and allow the new you to guide you. I am now your brother reach out if you have any questions, I am here frequently, and you always have God there with you as a comforter and helper, I Love you and stay blessed.

The denial and the distractions of the past were all leading me here
Now that knowledge has grown, I’m no longer a slave of the puppeteer
Living a life without fear, worry, or doubt has allowed abundance to be understood
There is no life in the things that the world calls to be good
Would I be able to explain? Maybe with more time.
This relationship with the Father has created a new paradigm
No longer in it for self-fulfillment or self-glorification
Still learning to trust Him with my complete preservation
I know that He is Divinely Providential
And everything through Him is more than possible
Glowing in His glory, basking in His presence, enjoying His peace
In all aspects of my life, He is my centerpiece
No longer can I speak those things that curse God’s beautiful creation
Now I command blessings over every person and nation
A patient and caring individual I am growing to be
Some many things could be said about how good He’s been to me
But I’m running out of time it’s already past three
This step has shown how the light reveals to us His glory
I have really been pushed slightly out of my element
This week has allowed for an increase of growth and development .

Into the Blue, moving without thought and without any fear
The next step is, oh so beautiful, becoming increasingly clear
The view of more and more to come, causing me to be eager to persevere
Nothing more to accept the path that has always been here
Dark in the beginning, and now so impressively visible
Could not have previously presumed for the darkness was so comfortable
Understanding growing; making it hurt to watch others failing to move forward
Forced to know, and the love in me causing me not to want them to be tortured
The snakes and the fakes holding them back, this could possibly be you
I’m writing this to all as a warning or a reminder of what we must do
The truth is for me, and it is for you; therefore we should accept it
Oh, it hurts so much when I think of how many of us neglect it
Disrespect the one who is and was and who will always be
The One that sits and waits for us to escape from bondage by merely choosing to be free
The beauty of the love and the joy and the peace available to both you and I
This place is accessible on earth not only in the vastness beyond the sky
Tears of yearning, turning and tearing me up on the inside and I want to cry
But something tells me to only continue to pray, and I only partially understand why
One day I know that if I stay the course it’ll become more clear internally and externally
But for now, we both go step by step towards living more consciously
Gradually, even weekly as I write these passages of growth from darkness into the light
Even for me each of the six days I have to remember to fight
The darkness surrounds us and awaits to overtake at any opportunity
Do you think that “the destroyer” is only a fabricated story?
Do you not know that as a roaring lion he seeks those whom he may devour?
When we're sitting, walking, or playing in darkness, it can happen any second, minute, or hour
The tower of a hope to reach heaven through our own works was a mistake
There is a way to get there, and that way is the one I suggest you take
The path is appearing gray to some, but to me, it is misty blue
Perception makes all the difference, but facts can’t change the truth
This journey is untold, but the destination is known absolutely
It is becoming more clear which way to go, come and follow me.

From the afternoon into the night, days will come, and they will go.  You don't have to tell me what is real, because I already know.  There will be special circumstances that require certain decisions and the situation that is caused,
isn't always the intentions. This truth is plausibly noted, but I hardly pay attention, my mind, heart and my gut remain in constant contention. Humble I must be, while my kindness is killing them slowly. To tell the true story; My passiveness is evolved out of not wanting to get blood on me. Priority is in the moment, don't continue to tempt me. It's not what you think; I just want to live peacefully.  I've been chasing reality, knowledge, and respect since I was able to think, talk and see; So now I introduce to you Mr. Reality.
We actually use to be happy in the darkness, and this is a time where we share and reminisce. Not promoting it but showing with it how one can change. We have moved across many lands, and many people have shaken our hand, and we've given many names. The same body with a different mind, I can say that I vaguely remember Yesterdai and I am planning for a destiny, but what we plan to do here is explore the possibilities of choices made and fate. Some of you are sleeping hearing this and others claiming that you're the wake. Whether blind or deaf, able to see and hear, it is clear that destiny brought you here. There's a lesson to be learned and a door to be opened if attention you do pay. Let's begin at step one it was the year of 2008.

Towards another stair embarking on this journey; (in mid-transition)
As it continues to lead, build, and grow gradually, focused on the mission
Always the same but somehow different as the elevation goes unfelt
Each as an individual expedition, just playing the cards as they’re dealt
Nights are of the day, and days of the night and sometimes in the middle is a new day
Somehow, they try and hold me back, causing confusion, but that’s just their way
Who is they; you may ask, the description givers, the war winners
They are the historical kings, dictators, but not necessarily the beginners
The ones who defrauded undetected and were ruthless enough to lead
The leaders that when disrespected; someone was made to bleed
Strong courageous and dangerous, they are the ones that are they
Deceivers in a way, but built all that there is today
Surrounded us in darkness, convincing us that we’re in the light
Approaching a certain abyss, calling those things that are wrong, right
Descriptions allow knowledge and knowledge allows power
This gets me back to the seconds, minutes, and hours
Our days get consumed by fruitless, worthless, unfulfilling activities
Web surfing, television watching, slaving without proper subsidies
Every moment varies in its description, every description has its function
Approaching this next step with purpose, being careful with times consumption
The optimistic supposition, remaining positive with every stride
Whatever pinnacle is next, going there, letting Truth be the guide
The staircase is narrow, and it stretches beyond sight
Strategically engaged and I recall there is only one way that is right.

What is it all for, where am I going, I can’t even see a door?
The destination is unknown, and neither is the purpose anymore
Everyone has advice, and they’re always presenting new opportunities
“Aren’t you searching for something better?” they ask, displaying many possibilities
Get money, love yourself, don’t you want more, the perpetual message of these days
Multiple emails, text messages, and phone calls, explaining to me how well it pays
Perhaps I should indulge in pleasure, enjoy my life, live the American Dream
Give into temptation, take a closer look, is it all they make it seem
It’s all going to be worth it, you’ll be happy you said yes, is what they keep telling me
Spending all my money and time chasing an idea of being financially free
I’m willing to run as hard as I can, what else do I need to do?
Call my friends and family, and put them on a three-way with you
Did that. Now what? Then what’s next?
I spend twice as much on my order than I get on these checks
What about cryptocurrencies, and what about forex?
What about this distraction and that distraction next?
The dreams of money, and beautiful things, seemingly an endless chase
Wanting it so bad, there's no way that this could be a waste
Face to face with myself, come on you can do this, affirming my success
Reading books, attending events, continually trying to do my best
Off to something new, what else is there on the list for selection
Things are getting dim, how did I get here, is this the right direction
Got off track a little bit, need to trust and believe, and continue to fight
I know I need to face my fear of the unknown and keep moving towards the light
Commitment and determination start with a heart that is willing
Failure is scarier then quitting, the thoughts of my day’s beginnings
“Soldier up soldier,” says the voice in my head
When I’m sleepy and don’t want to get out of the bed
Self-help is not the answer here, need help from my Creator
He is the one who gives strength to overcome the fleshly behavior
How did I get so far off track, why did I follow them, and why was it so comfortable?
Then He reveals to me it’s easier to come back because He is the Loving and the Faithful
I need only to own up for my actions and to acknowledge them unto Him audibly
Letting go of the anguish, make a mental turn around, trusting in Him to forgive me
We all are capable of error and may stumble from time to time, getting off beat
Reflecting on how questioning can lead to confusion and ultimately to self-deceit 
Followed the crowd and the social norms
Must have forgotten not to be conformed
From deep within the Real me cried,
“You can’t forget if you remain and abide.”

How do the challenges work?

How do I avoid deceit?

How will I know my place?

How will I know defeat?

Is it in the beginning?

Is it in Your voice?

Is it going to be obvious?

Is it all my choice?

What should I be thinking?

What should I be doing?

What should be my next question?

What should I be pursuing?

Is it about life’s purpose?

Is it what I’ve always done?

Is it there is no answer?

Is it going to be fun?

Why can’t I do this?

Why can’t it be that?

Why must I be afraid?

Why must I be abstract?

Is it really that dangerous?

Is it just a conspiracy?

Is it because it might not be?

It is what it is, and that’s what it’ll always be.

It’s not my place to influence, only to encourage and enlighten. Reciting these words with Love, how come so many, I frighten? When a dangerous description was likely, it was as if they doubted me. Now that I’ve seen the light, I live outside this fleshly body. I am beyond materialism, nonsense, and mortality. Universally living and exceeding every boundary. If you give it, you’re going get it back, so watch what you give. Tears, smiles, shrugs, and daydreams are a part of life no matter where you live. When in the moment, you should remember to focus. This is wisdom, understanding flows from this. Will or won’t this help you to know yourself? Is it not it you, that’s responsible for your health? So, I advise taking this as dictated. Life is a gift it should be appreciated. 
Romance, passions, and a zeal for life, what if you do, what if you don’t. Well if you are living in fear, you probably won’t. It is God who gives us the ability to fulfill our dreams, He makes all grace abound when you submit to Him in all things. Why, oh why would I want to mislead you, the things I’ve done I no longer do. I now seek His face and draw closer to Him daily, oh what a joy it is to know the one who made me. Created me for a purpose and now I’m learning what it is all for. These writings that I share there all laced with ways to arrive at His door. He’s my core and my strength, He gives me peace when I move and when I am still. I’m not going to say that it’s easy, but I seek to do His will.
To God be all the glory, honor, and praise. I'm hoping that you learn to explore His magnificent ways. The next moment, the next day neither is a guarantee, but if you know the Son, you will live in eternity. Please pray with me, stay here a little while, I didn't write these words alone it is He that desire you to smile. Only He can take away all the pain and replace it with peace, love, and joy. I am just a man, but to Him, I'm His baby boy. He has grand plans for you, you just need to ask Him what they are. The best part about it is He's right there waiting, so you don't have to go far. Passage after passage He only wants more of you so He can give you more of Him. I leave you with this until next time, He never wants you to be down and grim.

Read for later
