I really didn’t want to come off my tasks this weekend to go anywhere, but the tug in my spirit sprangs me up to make it to my fellow Flintstonian, Shaneen Bonner’s CD Release Party. The singing was amazing and the atmosphere was conducive to break every stronghold. The prophetic word spoken to me was so powerful and on point that I woke up at 4 a.m. numb. Yes, I am pregnant. Pregnant with a God child. It’s time to birth it. But fear had me bound even when I pushed. I tell you, fear is dreadful. It can step right in the middle of your destiny and delay it. Oh, but when there is a purpose, you have to keep getting up when you fall. Fear is so evil. It can grip you in your throat, pin you up, but if you move into the light, and look in the mirror, the hands gripping your throat are your own! Smh.
The opportunity God has given me is so big that it scarred me. It’s everything thing I have dreamed and prayed for, but Instead of walking through the door to my blessings, I poked my head out the door and asked, “Is this for real?” Then ran the other way saying, “Noo, I’m not ready.” But I am the courageous woman? Did I think that fear was not going to come for me and try to hang me, (sounds harsh but the truth)? Nope, I’m on the front line of the firery fear darts. But today, I removed MY hands from my throat and I’m ready to get to getting. I am ready to put my hands to every task God has given me, to bring forth every vision I have written…literally. And I want to encourage you to do the same and to part ways with your fears, to write your visions and execute in full force and walk in stride right into your purpose. It’s YOUR TIME. Now GO GET YOUR BLESSINGS
