Let me tell you something, I AM NOT AS STRONG AS PEOPLE THINK!
This weekend, I cried and threw a fit in front of Jesus, hear me?
No, really,I cut up. In my truck, my study, my living room, on the way to “sleep”, I cried and mumbled some grumbling to the Father. Some confusion came up that was reminiscent of my past. I wanted to do something stupid, that AIN’T God. Luckily, two ladies in my inner circle kept me grounded. They reminded me who my God IS. How, powerful is great counsel?!?
My Pastor teaches against isolation when you are under attack. What is my old pattern? Seclusion and sulking. My girls kept me from doing that. Progress made me call them. Sometimes, I am pseudo paralyzed by the issues that have come up in the past. One is: “not being good enough”. Pastor Jamaal Bryant came to my church and preached that sermon, my Pastor- Terence H. Johnson – mentioned it on Sunday, and it appeared in Saturday’s devotion via Joyce Meyer. The enemy is slick… He attempts to cloud you with memories to divert you from the future. YOU (I AM) ARE GOOD ENOUGH!!
If you have experienced this, or know someone who is, be Godly counsel for them. Remind them of how BIG God is. The same God who (insert previous victories) came through before. It helps. Yes, I threw my fit, but when I surrendered to the Father…He answered swiftly. How sweet is that?
You can’t change anyone but yourself. Pray that God reveals areas of improvement in YOU. He can change us all. He’s working on me.
