I’m Taking Up Space

Over the weekend I came across 2 different social media posts that immediately got my attention when I read these words,

“Ready Is A Lie”

 These words pierced my heart immediately, and tears sprang up in the corners of my eyes.  It was not until I read them that I realized, I’ve been waiting for “Ready” for a very long time! I have desperately wanted the feeling of READINESS to come and rescue me from all of my insecurities associated with showing up in spaces of discomfort.

Respect Small Beginnings

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.”

Zechariah 4:10, NLT 

The trap is to make you think you need hundreds or thousands of people to validate what God has given you. BEFORE you trust what He told you to do.

Right now, you may be reading this message from the ditch of complacency, feeling sorry for yourself because it seems like everything you do, you end up in the same place. Meanwhile, as you look around at others, it seems like everyone else is outpacing you.

May I offer you this thought,

Could it be you’re expecting completion, where God is giving you the grace to lay the foundation for what He has shown you?

Let’s face it, the vast majority of people, myself included, are not comfortable starting something new. New beginnings come packaged with Continue reading “Respect Small Beginnings”

Before There Was A White House

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

So tonight, I am interrupting my scheduled post to sincerely check in with you and ask each of you,

Where Are You?

WHERE ARE YOU?

-GOD

This is the classic question that God asks Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, after their disobedience. I am fascinated by this question. Why would the only ONE who knows EVERYTHING,  and is  EVERYWHERE need to ask such a question? Didn’t He know where they were?

OF COURSE HE DID!!! So why the question?  I am convinced that this question was about Adam and Eve’s awareness , and not God’s ignorance.  The goal of the question was to awaken them to the reality of their present moment.

Is it possible that God is asking you a question that is meant to jolt you awake from your slumber to your Present reality? Could God have drawn you to this blog because you’ve been sleep walking through 2020, and you don’t even know it?

It was around the mid-to-end of August that I sensed God sound an alarm in my own life.  The purpose of the question I heard was very similar to Adam and Eve’s, but it was not the same question.  The question I heard from Heaven was, Continue reading “Where Are You?”
