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

Adulthood. A bit overrated eh? It seems the socially accepted window of time to run away from home has passed. Though tempted to run and hide or pack up and leave when life deals blow after blow; remember wherever you go, there you will be. Word on the street is, “you’ll be there too.”

For a moment, drastic changes can prove to be the hard reset needed to adjust one’s sails. However, there are some things that new career paths, new hobbies, new clothes, beaus or zip codes can’t compensate for. 

Once docked, unpacked, settled in and the novelty has worn off, we are still met with the resounding echo of our own thoughts, unfinished business and unresolved issues. 

Perhaps it’s time Beloved, for that quiet moment of self reflection. You know…that one box that’s never unpacked no matter where you go.

Love you to life🌹e
