(Feb 25, 2013) God told me 2 years ago audibly that I WAS ABOUT TO GO THROUGH & to me that can means soo many things but that is just like our God to speak IN DEPTHS to us! well after he stated that everything that could happen did & I thought I was alone through it all but honestly I tell you that it has NOT been lonely in the least bit. I thought in this faith walk I would have to hide my trials, tribulation, & sufferings from everyone because I was embarrassed to look WEAK, to show others that my life is jacked up & I need God like never before but God starting to change my outlook on those things & placed people around me to allow me to SEE the same process; it was almost like looking in a surgery window with someone diagnose with the same issue I had & seeing them tell me encouraging words about the process that I was about to take & what a relief it will be after God was done with me.
So going through uncharted territory in your life is something you can not explain, it takes a discipline to be able to produce a new character, gratitude, humility & CHANGE in any new area you have never experience with the Lord. In this new area of your life you would try to say to yourself “I got this, I will do what I did in my last situation, or tell yourself to use the same advice from last time around and “boy I tell you that is not it at all. God says in his word from GLORY 2 GLORY so that means there are levels, heights in him that you must graduate to & today Feb 25, 2013 A beautiful Women of God that has encouraged me with this beautiful message & as I share with you. TAKE IT IN YOUR HEART & LET IT ENCOURAGE YOU AS WELL AS WE TAKE THIS FAITH WALK TOGETHER:
From NaQwanda Tempestt……He is definitely maturing me and that is just it, I stopped trying to handle it and just sat back and said okay Daddy, do Your thing and I apologize in advance if I’m not thankful and that is what has carried me. Things still aren’t coming together as quickly as I would like but He’s taken this season to renew my vision and stretch my dream. This has been the hardest season (last 5yrs) for me because it HURT but looking back I see my progress. I just kept giving and sowing and loving and blessing and just believed that in due season He would give it ALL back and I told myself that even if He didn’t, my response would still be worship.
I even stopped blaming church and the saints for my stagnation and I took responsibility for my own salvation and babyyyyy once I started walking in MY truth … freedom, do you hear me? So it may not evennnnn be an issue of patience, it might just be the fact that He wants to spend some quality time with His daughter (you) and wants to know that you’ll still love Him even if He doesn’t come through because the fact of the matter is, He has to come through for you because He promised you and He cannot lie nor can He fail.
So everyday you wake up be encouraged because that means your job isn’t done. And use this time to volunteer and pour back into someone who poured back into you. He gave me a new little sister in this season who was homeless with nowhere to go but He’s used her to pour back into me and I’m literally experiencing a miracle watching Him manifest Himself in her life. So stay in your word and enjoy where you are because you’re on your way.
Rejoice in every moment. Yeah it’s hard out here but what will your response be?? BLESS THE LORD! Learned the hard way that we can’t get caught up in our situation or a loved one’s struggle, got to keep our eyes to the hills and it isn’t easy but also got to keep our mind stayed on Him and just watch how He blesses you. Not the way you expect but in a way you didn’t even know you needed Bask in His love for you. His glory. His beauty that is yrs. life. It doesn’t feel good but its still perfect because He designed it. He knows where you are and He even knows why you’re here so let that be your consolation.
“Your Not Alone She Witness to us Col 3:16”
(Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.)
