So my heart is still racing & I’m still physically exhausted from a nightmare I had in two different settings last night. Exhausted from (in the dream) fighting a spiritual war through natural means. Fought it in the natural because of the way my enemies came packaged. Sweet, adorable, seemingly kind, as though approaching with good intentions. FAMILIAR to me and on familiar territory.

I fought defensively as not to hurt them (physically blocking etc) to keep them from hurting me WITHOUT destroying them. But I didn’t realize they were out to destroy me. It wasn’t until I woke up that it clicked it was a SPIRITUAL battle and should’ve been fought proactively the entire time.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” – Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)

A lot of us are handling nouns that are destroying us with kid gloves because they are FAMILIAR. Friends, family, business partnerships, relationships, places and moments that are continuing to hurt us and stop us from progressing to the next level.

People in our lives that we REALLY thought were sent by God but they are really on assignment from the enemy to steal, kill and destroy your DESTINY. Satanically energized to CONFUSE you of your identity and worth.

We continue to get sucka punched by the same person, place or thing BECAUSE our guard is down. And our guard is down ONLY because of the familiarity of the connection. WAKE UP. Like the cute little boys in The Passion Of Christ who eventually revealed themselves as demons assigned to torment Judas. He didn’t see the attack coming because of the spiritual condition he was in…💫e

Welcome to Day 12 of #TheLoveLetterProject Writing Challenge created by Marie of The Notion Of Love! If you’re just joining me, you can catch up on the rules here!

Day 12

To The Girl Still Waiting

I too am waiting

Waiting on prayers prayed

And

Waiting on dreams dreamed

And

Waiting on decreed manifestations

But

Who or what is waiting on me us?

I promise you

If I had waited for everything to be just right

You and I wouldn’t be having this conversation.

As I shared in an earlier piece

GOD CAN…I CAN’T

I remember rehearsing all the reasons why

I could not move forward with my desire and life calling to inspire others

I wanted everything to be perfect.

From eradicating debt to improving my health and physical appearance.

Sure those are things I am still working on

But who needs me NOW?

In this short video clip from a few years ago – I am honest about how worrying about such things is not where my focus should be – ’cause I could miss an opportunity to literally save a life.

Life is too short Beloved!

So today while waiting…

I want you to honestly ask yourself a few questions:

  • Are you waiting or procrastinating?
  • Why are you waiting?
  • Is who/what you’re waiting for worth waiting for?
  • Is it something or someone that has also deemed you worth the wait?

Lord God,

I pray that you would grant the person reading this right now wisdom and discernment. I pray for clarity and wisdom to prevail. May they know their worth and not settle waiting for who or what has already moved on.

Thank you for the gift of grace to wait patiently and honorably. Give us the courage to push past our insecurities so we can bless those waiting on us.

Amen

S T I L L

Dear Journal,

Yesterday afternoon I had the best conversation with one of the most inspiring entrepreneurs I know. She not only gave me food for thought, she challenged me to think outside the box without giving me crayons to draw.

I know what it’s like to start my day with great hope and purpose; only for things to periodically get screwed up fairly quickly. Our conversation reminded me why there were erasers on pencils. It’s never too late to begin again.

Maybe there’s someone else reading this who started out on their journey with a clear mind and things got very cloudy very quickly.

It is my hope and silent prayer that they remember as they throw their hands up in frustration or defeat that every setback is a not a Stop sign. For every moment of time is a gift destined for greatness even still.

Selah,

e

PS: It can still be a good day.
