Mr. Do Right…….
For years I went through bad relationships. I allowed myself to be treated as an option while I treated my mate as a priority. I was in abusive relationships that were detrimental to the health of the physical, mental and spiritual being. I was often told I wouldn’t be anything in life, nobody would want me and that I was worthless. If that’s not enough, these things were often said in between slaps, punches and kicks. At the time I was convinced that this would be the life for me. Some of us get into unhealthy relationships and allow them to consume the person that we are designed to be. I once had an older lady tell me “baby it takes a man to get over a man.” I believed this and would replace one evil for a lesser evil.
It wasn’t until I reverted back to the things that I was told as a child that I was able to find myself and begin to develop into the person that you see today. The vibrant, energetic and motivational person that you may know me as was literally “beat out of me.” I was told at an early age that I was smart, beautiful and able to be whatever and whoever I wanted to be. I would hear my mother and grandmother often say “when you down and out call on him, he’ll comfort you and wipe away all your tears.” I always wondered who he was. Then one day I had an encounter that made me remember what the older lady said to me when I was going through those bad relationships “it takes a man to get over a man.” And then I met him. Mr. Do Right. No matter when I called he would answer. He always listened to me and if I was quiet enough I could always hear him guide me. He was so sweet that he always spoke in a still small voice. He was a provider and fulfilled all my needs. I never had to want for anything and he’s such a gentleman because he’s always opening doors for me. You may call him Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Nissi, Provider, Way Maker or many other things. But, I now know him on a first name basis and
I call him Jesus, but I know him as Mr. Do Right.
Do you know him?
