“They” said…

17 Oct


“They” said following You would be easy.

But “They” didn’t know that I’ve never considered myself a follower, so following You has been the hardest journey of my life.

“They” said following You would be the best decision of my life.

But “They” haven’t been there when my doubts sent me searching high and low for even the tiniest reason to continue serving You.

“They” said I would never have to worry about anything ever again as long as I followed You.

But “They” don’t understand that when worrying is all you’ve ever known it’s hard to trust The God you cannot see.

“They” said all I had to do was call Your name and You would come running.

But “They” weren’t there the nights I called You incessantly, through tears, and You seemed to run AWAY from me.

“They” said all I had to do was pay my tithes and offerings and I would never have to worry about money again.

But “They” weren’t there when I walked into an apartment devoid of electricity due to non-payment.

~Just some things I jotted down while in my car on my lunch break at work. I was thinking about the past few years and how my relationship with Christ has had to rapidly evolve. 

I really believe we as Christians, young and old alike, have been done a disservice. We’re not being properly taught—and this doesn’t apply to all Pastors, Teachers and Leaders— how to prepare for and weather the storms of life. In many churches, folks are told: Come to church every Sunday & midweek and pay your tithes & offering and you’re good. How do you truly walk out what you’re hearing in church and reading in the bible (if you’re reading your bible)?

Most aren’t saying develop a sound relationship with Jesus Christ through communion with Holy Spirit. Study and digest the word D.A.I.L.Y. Figure out what generational patterns and curses exist in your family bloodline and begin to come against those patterns/curses. Make up in your mind that you’re going to break the dysfunctional, unhealthy and destructive patterns in your family so that you can walk in freedom. Pray AND Seek professional help when you’re battling mental illness.

For many, including myself, when the storms begin to hit your life you literally want to throw yourself off of a mountain because you don’t know how to cope. And that’s where I’ve been the past few months. All hell seemed to break loose in my family, my finances, at work and spiritually. These past few months have been all about truly applying what I know the Word of God says and proving to myself and God that I truly believe He’s God and He’s Sovereign.

In 2 Timothy 2:12 it says, “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him”. That word “suffer” in the Greek means “to remain, abide, not recede or flee”. In other words, when the going gets tough you don’t run off and say “Forget this Christian/ Jesus thing”. Sometimes in the “remaining”, there will be some suffering. When things start getting rough, you make a decision within yourself that you’re going to stick with God no matter what.

I’m not sure what you all, the readers, have been going through these past few months but for me it has been a roller coaster. One I would’ve paid money NOT to ride. I would like to pray for anyone that needs it. No matter the issue. It doesn’t have to center around purity and abstinence. You can email me at iwaitedblog@gmail.com. I look forward to the privilege of praying for you all.

I’m sticking with God, how about you?

Love you all!

Is it Sound Doctrine?

23 Jul

Been stuck in the book of Galatians for a few days now. Paul talks about his conversion and how he went away for a period of time before he even began to preach the gospel. 

What stood out for me in this Exploration point was: “Paul’s calling was exceptional, but his message was compatible with others”. 

I believe that there are still non-believers that will have Damascus road-like experiences. The problem comes when people claim to have these experiences but their message isn’t compatible/doesn’t line up with the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Paul met up with and spent time with Peter and James, who were pillars of the church, and they confirmed that his message lined up with the Gospel. 

Social Media has made it so easy to start a movement. But if your message doesn’t line up with the word of God, you sir/ma’am are a fraud. 

Who do you sit under? Who has confirmed that you’re preaching the unadulterated Gospel? Does your walk match your talk? #Gospel #SoundDoctrine #BackToTheBasics 

Set us Free God!

A friend sent me this picture to me today and I gasped. 

We don’t realize that soul ties will literally force us to remain attached to someone that we KNOW isn’t good for us. When we attach ourselves to people that have no part in our destiny, we put ourselves in a precarious place to experience delay after delay. 

God cannot and He will not release you into the destiny He has for you when you’ve got a noose around your neck. He absolutely has to protect what He’s put in you and that may mean pushing back the timeline until you fall IN LINE. 

This made me repent today and I don’t even have a No Good Bae lurking around. Lol. 

God can release you from the bondage of toxic relationships and toxic emotions TODAY. Allow me to pray for you: iwaitedblog@gmail.com.

Waiting ON God vs. Waiting IN God

28 Apr

A friend reminded me today that I’m waiting ON God and not waiting IN Him. 

Waiting ON Him promotes impatience and frustration. 

Waiting IN Him promotes rest and peace. 

“HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].” Psalm‬ ‭91:1‬ ‭AMP‬‬

#Prayer #Peace

Need prayer?

Sometimes, the moment you decide you’re going to stop fornicating, that’s when every “bae” comes out of hiding. Don’t fall for the okie dokie. 
Move in the direction Holy Spirit is guiding you to. Your promises, peace, provision and protection are in that direction.
