| I am | 1,152 hours which is equivalent to 69,120 minutes, that's how long I've been in New York. I went through my transition period but I'm at the tail end of it. I'm somewhere in the middle of an observing season. I've been asking a ton of questions in this time. Particularly to those I haven't heard from in such a long time. And especially those that I encounter for the first time. I want to know, on a very deep level what is at the core of their being. What is the driving force behind you? And so I'll start off with the most simple of questions, how are you doing? Often times, I've got to weed out the template/robot-like response of, "I'm ok." But in the midst of slinging questions at people, I have been asking myself one important question. Am I valuable? I am! But it's not because of my job, or the size of my house, or the number of friends/followers I have. I can say "I am" because it's a response I received when I took the question to Jesus, my God. He said, "Joseph you are my son." Weird? Maybe it doesn't make sense? You see, I went to the source of my being. I'm found in Him. I went to the Author who wrote my story. And out of Him comes my purpose, my joy, my life. Most importantly, my value. I know who my Daddy is and I want the same for you... So if you already know who your Daddy is, grab someone and love on them. Be accountable to them, ask some difficult questions... Then be real, be vulnerable like Jesus, who stretched His arms out. Look what came out of it!!!!!!! Valuable life.
