Often times when I go through seasons in my life that leave me feeling shattered I always do something wild to seal the memory. Last time this happened I cut my hair and minus looking very scary my dad was very mad about it. For the last few weeks I have had similar or more complex moments and I have learnt a lot that I thought I should share. Stay tuned and you just might see what wild card I played this time.
Like me most people thrive in a one man team. This does not mean that we are better alone it just means that we use the energy of the people around us but are sufficient to work by ourselves. Most people have misconstrued this character trait. No one is ever going to be able to flourish to their maximum potential alone. I was amazed when I read God’s response to the people building the tower of Babel in Genesis 11 vs 6
And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
This is a very profound statement that depicts what people can do when they come together in one accord. Most if not all of us already know this even from the secular aspect of life we say “No man is an island” but what hinders us from allowing people into our lives enough for us to be blessed by them and vice versa? Let me introduce to you the T word, TRUST. We live life as if we have a target on our backs and everyone is dealing arrows and bullets our way to kill us. Today allow me to burst your bubble and tell you this, you will never reach your destiny alone. It doesn’t matter how attached you are to God or how spiritual you are but we are designed as team players. Look at Jesus, He was the son of God but yet had disciples to help Him in His ministry. I’m not saying people hold your destiny but they open your eyes to it. People see you very differently from how you see yourself and so through them you can see a side of you that you couldn’t discover alone. A different perspective.
Most of us have labeled ourselves with what we call trust issues but really what we have is fear. Fear of betrayal, hurt, commitment, failure, disappointment etc. We have let fear delay us from attaining that which God has placed in our path. The bible actually says God has NOT given us a spirit of fear but of LOVE, POWER and SOUND MIND. Drop this fear and take a leap of faith today. Embrace the Love of Jesus Christ, the Power of the Holy Spirit and use the Sound mind given to you by God. Hurt disappointment, betrayal and all these things we are afraid of are just lessons and low moments in our journey but God has promised in Psalms 23 to be with us in the valley of the shadow of death. Stop limiting God’s capability to protect your feelings and thoughts in the name of guarding your heart. Lastly ask for wisdom to identify the wolves so that as you put yourselves out there you will not fall prey to them.
CHALLENGE FOR THE WEEK: Take a leap of faith and trust again. Make a new friend, go on a date, join a group you always wanted to. Do anything that tries your trust. Cant wait to read all your stories and feedback.
