CELEBRATING OUR SUCCESSES
Recognizing that “we’ve come this far by faith” is something that we not only sing as our anthem, but it is our recognition that our faith in God has guided us as individuals, all our lives. Faith has guided our organization since October 12, 1962. Having faith and belief in God is at the core of man’s existence and is essential to embracing one’s spirituality. We were all created in the image and likeness of God and therefore God’s spirit resides in each one of us guiding us in all we do. When we lack faith, we diminish our ability to receive God’s blessings.
When we stop, look back and think about the many trials that we have faced not only as individuals but as an organization, we must embrace the fact that had it not been for our faith and belief in a successful outcome, we would have failed in all our endeavors.
If our ancestors did not have faith, would they ever have been able to endure the atrocities levied on them by the institution of slavery? Without faith will we ever be able to overcome racism, sexism, discrimination, and bigotry? Without faith, will we successfully survive the incompetence shown by the 45th President of the United States? Each one of us must cultivate our relationship with God and never ever doubt that our faith will always sustain us and allow us the ability to stay strong and maintain a positive attitude despite any challenges that we encounter.
It is so very important to appreciate and celebrate each day we live. It is incumbent on each one of us to thank God for all that we have and for allowing us the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. God created each one of us with very special leadership qualities. We must always celebrate our individual and collective successes and truly appreciate just how far we’ve come, by having faith.
Thank you, God, for allowing Groove Phi Groove Social Fellowship, Inc.® to exist and to be able to celebrate our successes. Thank you for letting our members do good works that are pleasing to you and that benefits others.
To God be the Glory for the Great Things He’s allowed us to accomplish.
Peace & Blessings to all,
Dennis K. Thomas
