Repeated Lessons

I used to sit in church as a child and wonder why are we hearing the same message over and over again being taught in different ways? That stuff used to annoy me. I felt like man these preachers need to get on the Bible game a little bit better. I mean there are different stories in the Bible. way more scriptures than the usual ones that they like to speak on. Heck turn the TV to TBN and copy some of these televangelist sermons. I won’t be mad just stop talking about the same thing over and over again. I used to ask what is it that we are not doing? What is it that we are not understanding? What’s is it that we are not getting? Now that I’m older I get it now. We haven’t learned our lesson. We keep going back and subjecting ourselves to the things of old because we haven’t let go So we can free up a hand to reach out and grab the things that are new. So when we get ready to listen to what is being taught then we will see a change in the message and that is solely based on a change taking place in us.

So peace

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
