Toxic Relationships?

“People who use others, have been used themselves. Hurt people, hurt people. You’ll find these individuals coming in and out of your life. You’ll hear them label you the toxic one. If they only knew that it’s from their own toxicity, that their eyes are blinded to anything or anyone of good.

Light and darkness cannot coexist. Go into a room, see if can have the light on and off at the same time. You’ll have to choose either to have the light on or off… But you can’t have both. There are some who go through pain and treat others better than the cards they were dealt in life. But then, there are others who go through pain and share that level of hurt with everyone who crosses their paths.

Lastly, they’ll play the distance game. In this game, these individuals purposely distance themselves, thinking that their unhappiness comes from the one who they laugh the hardest with. Apart from Jesus Christ, these people will search for happiness in all the wrong places.

Narrow is the rode that leads to life and few find it. Wide is the rode that leads to destruction and many find it. Those of us on the narrow rode will be persecuted, abandoned by the ones who do not share the same spirit, and laughed at. But I tell, it’s all worth it. I read the end of bible… We win. Let the “in and out burgers” go. Here today and gone tomorrow, should only be said to explain the shortness of life… Not the definition of a current relationship.

Stop eating out of the trash can. God has already stocked the fridge with something new. What ended up in your trash can, is meant to decay there. Unless you plan on decaying too… I suggest you look up to what’s new. The past has decayed and your future will be delayed if you don’t appreciate the path God has made.”

The Banana Story

“When a banana is not yet ripened, it’s not pleasant to eat. The trick is to wait until the banana is fully ripened. You’ll see the banana turn from green to yellow. When we’re patient enough to wait, we’ll come back to our kitchen and enjoy a sweet tasting banana.

People are the same way. If a man or woman is not yet ripened for God, you best leave them on the kitchen table of life and let God continue to ripen them. You see, if you’re hungry enough… Go and eat that unripened green banana. There’s no one stopping you. But, I’ll tell you… It won’t taste very good. When god closes a door, locks Mr. & Mrs. Wrong behind… Let it be.

The souls behind that door may never ripen. Leave the decision up to God. Unripened things and people don’t taste good. When the right one comes to you, please know that he or she has already took place in the ripening process and now they’re ready to be a joy to you.”

Who Is Jasmine Manasseh?

“I consider myself a blogger that writes from feelings attached to my experiences. No, I’ve never formally went to this place (some call college), to learn how to do this. Why? I didn’t feel like it was required. Being able to convey true emotions into written words… could never be taught. Just like love could never be bought, being able to connect to the core emotions of others through a written language… could never be artificially inserted, but only organically grown from a persons own seed.

At 21, I thought I’d have it all figured out by now. Honestly speaking though, I’m sort of kind of… happy that nothing is set in stone. Everything that I’ve learned up until this point, brought me to a blank slate. I guess I could describe it as being awoke for the first time, unlearning the deep rooted lies, and finally able to paint the right picture.

What I considered a curse, I now consider a gigantic blessing. To understand God as if he was clear Hawaii waters or just knowing my value through his eyes… wow. It wasn’t even on my bucket list of cross offs, but what can I say… God works in his own way. Since were being honest, let me clarify. I’m not referring to the man-made, westernized(white), republican party Jesus. I’m referring to the original author of his own words, who paid for the sins of ALL mankind, and created the mighty universe. If you’re still a bit lost, let me just be a bit clearer… The original God, before America Photoshopped him.

Feels good to get that off my chest. I hope to connect to my readers, with a simple non-game plan of just being unapologetically real. I feel like authenticity has been through a freakin holocaust. So, if you’re looking for clear water truth, stay tuned. If not, you wont find any murky water here. Excuse the fact that I’m mentioning the word “Water” so much. It’s super muggy in Texas right now and we’re running a bit slow on the pool construction lol!

I don’t know how to categorize this blog, nor do I really want to. Through my experiences, I’ve felt an array of different emotions and unlearned my way into many different eye opening truths. I would compare it to opening my eyes after a really long sleep. I feel that I would do myself a huge disservice, if I attempted to label something so beautiful… like life. There’s to many beautiful and colorful moments, than to just paint it all gray,

This next line is dedicated to my little brother Sky. You Ready? If life were a kind of candy… it would be a colorful bag of skittles. It perfectly reflects the way God likes his creation, his unique life lessons, and his words. I’m excited to share whatever God inspires me to share. It will always be in hopes to awake the sleeping and give the restless more of that coffee called… awakening.”
