God knew that it was time for a shift in my mindset & life. He knew that I needed to be among people who have been to hell and back yet still knew how to praise Him!
See, I thought about the fact that just several years ago, I was searching for completion and what had been given to me was more than I could have ever imagined. I still smile because God wasn’t moved by my desire to “assist” him, and all I can say is that (IN DUE SEASON) EVERYTHING breaks free!
The carousel that I remained on kept me going in circles because I hadn’t consulted DADDY on anything. I had to stop & ask myself :
“Sweetie, what have you been too afraid to believe or ask God for?”
Did not the word say, ” Ask & it SHALL BE given unto you-if you ask in MY NAME [JESUS-the ALPHA & THE OMEGA] the only ONE who can grant your desires?”
How can I desire a thing if I’m too lazy or fearful to take the first step? I decree & declare that as “first steps” toward our destinies are taken, God will meet us at our greatest place of need. He’s not concerned with the schematics of our desires; the master plan has already been strategically written. Do you really need to see the blueprint? I trust in His architectural abilities. He created the heavens AND the earth!!
When I think of the song by Zacardi Cortez, “God Held Me Together”, it makes me stop to say Thank You because I know that God has kept me super glued together with duct tape on the outside! I have been discouraged while keeping a smile plastered across my face. I have wanted to give up so many times, but He wouldn’t give up on me.
THANK YOU LORD!
There’s such a fine line between sanity & insanity, and so many things have pushed me to the brink, but He kept me. Things seemed to pile up all at once, but He kept me. I wanted to walk away from so much, but He kept me. I wanted to throw in the towel because I was so worn out, but God KEPT ME.
The only way I know how to show Him how much I appreciate his blessing is to continue to walk this walk and tell my story to anyone that I meet!
Thank you God for being my:
strong tower, my prince of peace, my light in dark places, my hope, my joy, my salvation, my peace, my shield, and my deliverer.
Thank you Lord for covering, protecting, and loving me in spite of me.
Thank you Lord for simply being my all & all.
