It’s sad to say, but there was a time when I Used To be a better friend to people who were pimps, drug dealers, and abusers then I was to Christ.  I was under no illusion of who these people were, just like I am under no illusion of who God is. 

I knew exactly who and what I was dealing with and what I was capable of, still when things went wrong I was quick to blame them.  It took some time but I finally figure out my actions were my fault, not my friends.  I was doing what I wanted to do, and doing it all by choice.

That’s the point; it was my decision and a poor one but I hung in there because we were friends, and I wasn’t willing to upset the apple cart; Things were good.  I even had morals but that’s just another excuse, I was trapped by association, even when I knew us to be wrong I fell in line.  There was no need for Satan to waste time getting me to go against the Will of God, I was already a willing participant by acts, deeds, and Association.

For the rest of the story get your copy of I Survived 60 Years To Get Cancer, Then Kill It./ Norvie L. Cherry at

As time passed and I was still playing along with what I knew to be wrong I started to question my position.  Every time I got into trouble, not once did I cry out to my so-called stable environment of friends, it was always to Jesus Christ.  I knew they couldn’t help me when the promises were made.  I knew the Lord from childhood, and because of that knowledge, I was able to reevaluate my life and get on the right track.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6  KJV

Now don’t get it twisted, that verse doesn’t mean we will be near 100 before we get it right, but with most of us, it may take something drastic to turn ourselves around.

I stayed in the mix because I thought I had control over me and I was doing My Thing when in truth the ones I was following instead of Jesus Christ were the ones with all the power.  I was allowing them to make ill thought out plans that included me and they resulted in nothing but hardships, coupled with I had a deep sense of their warped abilities to fail from the beginning.  How Stupid Is That?

There is a lot to that Biblical saying You reap what you sow.  I wasn’t listening because the people and things around me were cool in my eyes, but to the rest of the world, we looked like fools.  I was just another lost soul under the illusion that I knew more than you and you and you; especially you. (Parents)  Which turned out to be the worst mistake of my life, coupled with a false sense of security.

I did things by sight, smell and sound, not sense.  I was young, and I wanted my way coupled with a willing to get it at another one’s expense.  I hope you understand am not using my youth as an excuse for bad behavior, but as a Testimony to when we think we know more than our Seniors and exercising that assumption using age as an excuse to rebel, knowing all the time some of us was taught to know better.

If that’s not true why do we hide our injustices for the sake of the next big adventure?

One of my favorite statements when trying to explain my way out of stupidity to my parents was You’re Just Old And Don’t Understand.  Not once did I think the reason they knew all my so-called game plans was because of age; Another word for Experience.  Our Seniors are the ones with most of the knowledge, and because of that fact, we should be hanging on to every word that comes from their mouths instead of shelving them to the side claiming their outdated.

What could my friends do that God couldn’t?  Ooh, they could get me out of jail on some small charge but God could see to it that I never go back.  Then there was that problem of smoothing everything over with the parentsThe thing is neither God or my parents was the reason I was in trouble in the first place, but naturally, it wasn’t my fault either, it was my associates and yours.  🙂

Aging with Wisdom is the key to a successful life including owning up to our shortcoming and a willingness to Change Our Ways, especially our Associates.  So perhaps losing a few troublesome friends might not be such a bad idea.  By the way, if the ones we call old has something to say they now have my attention because it takes someone who has lived long enough to tell us how to survive this world with minimal damage, especially when it seems as if we are in the Land of the lost. 

There is only one way to get old, and that is to live and learn, coupled with, If God grant you with an abundance of years, you may get to see how you may have appeared to others years ago when you thought you knew everything.

Just so you know if you were a follower, what you see, hear and recognize in the years to come may not be pretty.

It’s Something To Think About!

Get behind me, Satan.  To God Be The Glory, and it’s in Jesus name that we pray.  Amen!
