Stand Up and Manifest!
These past weeks, I have roamed through the desert with no particular destination. I have sat by the river bank and cast in my fishing line into the waters and caught nothing just like Peter and his friends who went a-fishing and toiled night and day without a single reward.
My projects hung on the balance and were found wanting. I could barely complete a paragraph of an article and I ended the days with the feeling of loss. Yes, I felt LOST and GROSSLY INADEQUATE. I wished the day would end on time and tomorrow never came. But I couldn’t hold the time, could I?
I asked God many questions. What if I could not achieve my dreams? What if I was just wasting my time? What if what He had in store for me was not what I was living for? What if I lost a dear one? What if…?
I waited for answers, but it seemed none was forthcoming and like Moses, I knew I had to wait. His time is always the best.
And just right out of the blue, from the very place I would never have thought of, God gave me an answer.
Have you watched ‘Akeelah and the Bee’? Here is what the little girl said:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
God told me ‘Little girl, stop wallowing in your state. Stand up and manifest my glory!”. I have chosen to arise and tap into His resources in my life. I will not allow fear to be in charge anymore. This is the start of a new month. It is the beginning of a POWERFUL ME. So, watch out! THE ACHIEVER IS HERE. 🙂
