Queen, if I had to tell you of all the times when I have counted myself out before the next person has a chance to, I would endlessly count for days. The thought that I had built up a wall over the years blocking me because of unforgiveness, lack of trust and lack of faith hurt because it was the very wall that held the same obstacles in the way of my breakthrough. Lately, I have been in my quiet time regaining my strength and shifting my mindset into true abundance. Believing and assuring myself that I can have it all because I am my Father’s. It has been a journey filled with tears, prayers and discovering a burning fire for how deep God’s love is for me.
I discovered that my life is a story of redemption and revival. I realized that He has always protected me from when I was a little girl in trouble until now when this woman of God loses her way. God always brings me back to a place of peace. Going down memory lane my life has truly been a testament to how great God is.
Listen Queen the story is deep within and you have to dig. That woman you desire to be and you keep envisioning is inside of you. She needs you. You need her. Seek for her each day. But it will take some work. Well, it may actually take some detailed strategies that uplift you out of the darkness and into the light. Digging requires unlocking the pain, the hurt, the trauma, the lies, the truth, the joys, the growth and the faith. You may need some days to recover from time to time. You may need to take some extended “Me Time”. It may drain you and enlighten you at the same time but the most important thing is to see that it is within you and you have everything you need if you just look within.
Why is looking in so difficult?
I will tell you that looking in the mirror and speaking life into myself was the most difficult part of me feeling like I was not worthy. I felt every feeling each time I showed up and faced myself. It is hard to dig deep and face every obstacle that is in your way. Let’s be honest, if your reason for difficulty was anything like mine, it is because the TRUTH HURTS and LETTING GO OF STUFF HURTS TOO!
Difficulty comes with your beliefs. It starts when we are little girls and we are domesticated into what the world sees us as. We grow up in conflict with the belief that we are beautiful inside and out. Conflict that we can have a life of abundance. Conflict that we can be ANYTHING we want to be. Conflict that we can EXPECT and not just hope. Conflict in self hindering us to be the best we can be. Then, that same conflict leads us to believe that we are unworthy and not an asset to everything we touch. We hold on to hurt people, painful situations, unforgiveness and hurtful words that taunt us. There we stand stagnant and stuck rolling in the mud, dirty by lies that the enemy uses to remind us daily on this relationship with God. Lies and situations that do not hold any substance to the woman of God you are today. A lesson is blessing and you better utter that each time an attack like this comes. Speak life back into you through the storm!
You serve a God who promises life MORE ABUNDANTLY. That is an EXPECTATION you need to set in your FOUNDATION of who you are. Life is about the journey not the destination. It is about learning the lessons along the way. Being reminded of the wonderful testimony you hold in your heart. It is about the growth you receive and holding it as an answered prayer just as a reminder of how great God is. Life has its highs and its lows. It has its wins and areas of growth, Through it all we learn that the true fight, the true abundance, the true gift and the true resilience was in us all this time. We are equipped with a Father who sees us and knows what we endure. We are equipped with peace in times of turmoil. We are equipped with promises for every attack. We are HIS. Never forget that.
It is your time to win!
There is no better time than NOW! At this moment. Right now to get back in your prayer closet and get your winning on. I mean working through the difficulties that may take some time to get through like…
Abuse of any kind
This means you need to pray harder than ever before. Get on your knees and reclaim every abundance opportunity set before you in the Kingdom. Yes, ask God what you want of me next because your Yes is connected to a bigger purpose for the Kingdom. Mountains will move. Obstacles will turn into opportunity. Your life will never be the same. So, start today and begin digging to the roots so you can feed you what you need. Nourish yourself Queen or nobody will. Go to the Lord and ask for what is not like Him to be revealed to you. Ask Him to cleanse you. A renewed flower waiting to blossom! So excited for your journey Queen! The abundance is already granted so learn to let go and have tunnel vision on God, He will guide you the rest of the way!
Scriptures to meditate on:
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
“ There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate,a time for war and a time for peace.”
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Peace & Blessings
