2017 has thought me many lessons. With all that I been through the last 5 years, didn’t think there could be anything left to attack me. But I started this year under a heavyweight. A weight meant to break and destroy me. And as the days continue the weight grew heavier. The biggest lesson was I was not built to break. That as long as I put my faith in Jesus, that He would bring me through each and every dark and painful night that I faced. Yes, I received some bruises along the way, but I wasn’t destroyed, crushed or silenced.
If asked, I would have never thought I could have survived the varies stumbling blocks and pitfalls that I have faced in my life. But at the end of 2017, I not only survived, I overcame each storm by the Blood.
Now in 2018, it is my time to Soar. My time to tell my story, my time to set the record straight about what each of us is truly borne to do. As I look for guidance from my Heavenly Father, I know this is truly my time to break every negative stereotype and ceiling that was created to hold me back and silenced me.
An awesome woman of God shared Ecclesiastes 3, A time for everything, to close out this year pray meeting. I truly believed that there is a specific time for every activity in life. And my time is now.
A TIME TO BE BORN AND A TIME TO DIE,
It is time for the ministry that God has a place in you to be born. Just it is time for playing small to die.
A TIME TO PLANT AND A TIME TO UPROOT,
It time to uproot all the negativity that has been fed to you as truth and time to plant seeds of God’s word of healing, abundance, and prosperity.
A TIME TO KILL AND A TIME TO HEAL,
It’s time to kill off every vine that has attached itself to strangle and entangle you. Use this time heal the wounds that were created to kill with God’s soothing balm.
A TIME TO TEAR DOWN AND A TIME TO BUILD,
It is time to tear down every wall and partition that shut out the light of God’s word and build a gate that separate one from the destruction of the evil in the world. A gate to the sanctuary of God’s grace and peace.
A TIME TO WEEP AND A TIME TO LAUGH,
A TIME TO MOURN AND A TIME TO DANCE,
The time to weep and mourn is no more, now we will dance and laugh at the glorious blessing of God’s love.
A TIME TO SCATTER STONES AND A TIME TO GATHER THEM,
A TIME TO EMBRACE AND A TIME TO REFRAIN FROM EMBRACING,
Time has come to leave the scattered directions of others behind, to refrain from embracing that which was not meant for you. Embrace the promises of God and gather your arsenal of weapons in your heart of God’s word.
A TIME TO SEARCH AND A TIME TO GIVE UP,
A TIME TO KEEP AND A TIME TO THROW AWAY,
The time has come to give up on hopes and dreams that have led to misery and discouragement, to throw away that which brings no value to your being or purpose. Search for the truth of God’s word and keep His promises ever before you.
A TIME TO TEAR AND A TIME TO MEND,
Now tear up every judgment used against you and mend the brokenness of a dying people all around you.
A TIME TO BE SILENT AND A TIME TO SPEAK,
Silence the noise around you that may hear the quiet whisper of instruction and direction, that when the time comes to speak, you will deliver the very word that God has given you to nourish on.
A TIME TO LOVE AND A TIME TO HATE,
A TIME FOR WAR AND A TIME FOR PEACE.
The time of war is upon us to destroy each weapon sent to fill this world with self-destructive hate. But the time has come for every believer to share with a dying world the love of God and the peace that God can only give to those that call on the same of His son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
