The roots

30 for 30


My son
Know that there is
More than an app trap
Meme game
Quick rich scheme
Stay away from shortcuts to happiness
You work out your own purpose with struggle and pain …
Your own salvation before the lord.
There is an old way…
Way back …
It’s an old gospel
An old rugged cross …
An old hymn crying out in the wilderness
“It is well with my soul.”
This gospel got your ancestors through the dust bowl…
Through depressions
And recessions…
They built legacies and futures
Living on $10 dollars a week..
Their recipes are still good
Their prayers are still good
Their faith is still good…
This gospel is still good today…
A gospel that sets the captive free
Baptized by fire
Filled with the Holy Spirit
Changed …
Where Samuel said
“As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right. But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.”

Pray, pray for your family
Your community
Your children

Build up leaders
Build a legacy…

And stand

With purpose that you have worked out before the Lord…

Tired of thirst and a life without purpose
And men who go missing
When Snapchat rings
And they leave their wives and children
Tired of lives unchanged
Tired of being in bondage
And depression
and self help saying
Everything is fine
Build your life son
Be a steward
Walk in purpose and strength
And stand
In freedom
And let it be well with your soul
