From the depths of darkness and mud, this beautiful flower emerges to greet the light.
The waterlily serves as a reminder that we have the ability to rise from the mud of our life.
If we are to bloom in life, we must honor the entire process of our growth. Without the mud as its anchor, the waterlily wouldn’t exist. Nor would its beauty.
Take the time to explore your root system. It is part of what makes you who you are though it does not define you. Bless it. Release it. Forgive it the pain it may have caused by offering it to the light for healing and transformation.
Be like the waterlily. Rise from the environment of muddiness and complexity. Break through to the light and bloom out of the darkness. Radiate your beauty into the world. Honor all that goes into making you you.
Acton Bowen, the evangelist who served as a youth minister for teenage boys and became a best-selling author was given the maximum sentence for all 28 charges related to sexually abusing six teenagers in Etowah County on Friday. The sentences are to be served consecutively which means Bowen would serve roughly 1,008 years before being released.
Before being arrested for raping and sexually assaulting children, Bowen, founder of Acton Bowen Outreach Ministries, was a wildly popular youth evangelist and the host of xlroads TV, “a worldwide broadcast viewed weekly by millions of teens and adults in every city in America and over 170 countries around the world.”
The news of Bowen’s arrest in 2018 shocked many in east Alabama’s Christian community where he was considered a hometown hero. Bowen had served as chaplain for the 2012 Olympics, made appearances on Fox News, and promoted himself as a spiritual adviser to Hollywood Stars including Justin Beiber.
Kindness Prayers for All Children Suffering Abuse 🙇😌🙏🕯️

Decisions. The truth is that we cannot know for sure what will happen with the decisions that we make. We can list the pros and cons. We can get advice from those we trust. We can figure and speculate all we want, only to get lost in the maze of not knowing. This “not knowing” […]
