WHEN A WOMAN GETS CLOSE TO DELIVERING HER BABY SHE BECOMES EXCITED, ANXIOUS & SHE CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THE BEAUTIFUL BLESSING THAT WILL BE HERE BEFORE SHE KNOWS IT.
DURING THE DIFFERENT TRIMESTERS SHE EVEN FEELS SOME DISCOMFORT FROM BEING STRETCHED & PULLED BUT SHE KNOWS IT’S A REQUIREMENT FOR THE BABY TO GROW/DEVELOP AT A HEALTHY RATE.
MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING BRAXTON HICKS FOR WHAT HAS SEEMED LIKE FOREVER. BUT YOUR ANGELS ARE NOW ESCORTING YOU TO THE DELIVERY ROOM!! THE TIME HAS COME TO GIVE BIRTH TO YOUR PURPOSE!! FOR WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR HAS NOW ARRIVED!!!
There are many people who want to live in new realms of influence, however they
#1 Don’t have a consistent prayer life
#2 They don’t want to be prepared. (GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF PROMOTION)
When you study the Bible, you’ll see that Joseph was being prepared at an early age. He experienced betrayal from those closest to him by being sold to the Midianite’s, who in turn sold him to Potiphar. God was preparing Joseph for his promotion during what could easily be recognized as the most difficult and challenging time of his life.
Then we have Esther who is another example of going through THE PROCESS OF PROMOTION. She couldn’t just walk into the palace and say that she was the Queen. There were specific things that had to happen BEFORE she was given ACCESS and named Queen of Persia.
There will be times when you’re going to feel UNCOMFORTABLE, FRUSTRATED and even wonder IS IT EVER GOING TO HAPPEN?! BE ENCOURAGED and HEAR ME WHEN I SAY that NO MATTER HOW UNSETTLED THINGS MAY LOOK AT THE MOMENT… DON’T GIVE UP! IT WILL HAPPEN!! GOD IS A PROMISE KEEPER and YOU’RE CLOSER THAN YOU THINK.
Praying for you,
Hey guys! I wanted to give this message of encouragement to someone that may feel like they are at their lowest point right now. You think this is the end and that your situation will never change. This is your reminder that THIS IS NOT THE END of your story..GREATER DAYS ARE AHEAD and GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION.
Life can be such a rollercoaster…There are times where it is filled with disappointments, loss and heartbreak. There are also moments where we have glimpses of hope, of God’s love, protection and that His timing is beyond perfect. Maya Angelou said that “we may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated.”
It’s easy to allow yourself to stay down or feel pity in regards to whatever you may be going through. To wonder why these things keep happening to you or to just give up and say that you are done with life all together…BUT you are better than that. YOU ARE WORTH MORE than that and GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION! I know that some days are harder than others but you have to constantly remind yourself that no matter what is happening around you, that YOU WILL NOT BE DEFEATED.
I believe in you and I know you are here for a greater purpose. So no matter who gave up on you, who abandoned you and who chose walked away…This is not the end of your story! Continue pushing forward with everything that is in you because GREATER DAYS ARE AHEAD!
What do you do when every day that you wake up, you dread going to your current job? The feeling of being unfulfilled and the swarm of anxious thoughts that fill your head as soon as you drive into the parking lot…They have you restless. Why do you feel this way and what do you do about this haunted reality that you can no longer ignore?
I’ll make this post short and straight to the point. The reason you’re feeling this way is because you aren’t living the life you were created to live. I’m not saying that you aren’t where you’re supposed to be in this season because sometimes we are in God’s will and He’ll make us uncomfortable for a greater purpose. However, I am saying that if every day that you wake up, you know that you aren’t pursuing what you’re passionate about, then it’s time to start doing that. It’s funny how some people say that life is short but life really isn’t that short when you’re miserable and not living the life you desire and the life you deserve.
I remember one day at work I was so frustrated. I was allowing everything that occurred that day, to get to me. I remember going for a walk and I started talking to God and just telling Him how frustrated I was. Then after He listened to me vent with my laundry list of complaints, He sternly said “You’re frustrated because you’re not walking in your purpose.” I couldn’t help but laugh because He was right! GOD WAS ABSOLUTLEY RIGHT! I was bringing all of this on myself because I refused to be consistent when it came to walking in my purpose. There was some fear, doubt and other things that I was allowing to hold me back and all the while God was saying…”Just Trust Me.”
So, my challenge for you is to stop listening to what everyone else is saying about how you should live your life and start LIVING YOUR LIFE ON YOUR OWN TERMS. Choose to wake up every single day and do at least one thing that will push you closer to your purpose. I know life can get busy and the day can go by faster than we’d like it to but if you truly desire more for your life, then you’re going to have to work for it. You’re going to have to start saying no to some people so that you can start saying yes to your purpose. People will say that you’re selfish and that you’re only thinking about yourself. That’s ok, let whoever have an opinion but don’t allow that opinion to become your reality.
Start looking out for your well-being and relentlessly run towards what sets your soul on fire!
I remember when I was a child, I was very quiet and would often be found in the company of a good book. This awkwardly tall, wearing pink framed glasses with several braids in her hair young girl, knew she was different. I didn’t have many friends but I do remember a select few who made a positive imprint on my childhood. There was a time during those years where I tried my hardest to fit in with all of the other kids. I just wanted to be accepted and embraced by my peers and not seen as weird or unpopular. No matter what I wore, said or did, I was never truly accepted as their equal. Later on in my teen years God began to speak to me about why I never was able to fit in with my peers.
He shared with me that my frustration was all self-induced. That no matter how hard I tried, I would never fit in with them because He had set me apart for a greater purpose. That my longing to be accepted was actually my fear of being great! I share this small fraction of a story to remind you that you were not blessed with this life to be mediocre. We ALL have a purpose and it’s up to YOU to HEAR IT, EMBRACE IT and LIVE IT. I know that this year may have been the hardest for many but DO NOT GIVE UP. The world needs YOU and your gifts. There will be a number of things that will try to come in the way of you living your best life. The NUMBER ONE FACTOR is YOU. Many of us don’t want to face the truth..There was even a time when I didn’t want to accept “the ugly truth”. We can be our worst critics sometimes..Even most of the time. We try to talk ourselves out of moving to a new city, applying for that position, taking a chance on love and yes, even walking into our purpose.
At the end of the day, what other people have said or even done to you won’t matter. What WILL matter is how you learned from life’s challenges and that you in turn allowed it to be the fuel to step out of mediocrity and unapologetically walk into your purpose!
