Today I turn 30 in Sass-Fee Switzerland of all places! Though I enjoy the beauty and fresh air I do miss family and friends. Last night right before 12AM I set intentions for this year because I feel like birthdays are similar New Years Day and in the Black southern tradition the way you start the New Year is the way you will spend it and I want to spend this year in God’s purpose for me. I also reflected on the lessons God has taught me during these three decades of my life:
When will we be free? What does it take, who does it take? We don’t need another Messiah. Our modern life is not free; we are slaves to possessions, addictions and dead self-esteem. We can’t be free if we don’t know we are in neo-slavery. We won’t be free without radical love.
