Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers–
Happy Thursday! It’s a wonderful day filled with reflection and revelation for what’s next. Here are a few updates before we dive on in: 1) I’m a rising 3L – this law school journey is almost over and it’s time to go out with a BANG! 2) Out of faith, I find myself letting go of things that I once found security: job, friendships, etc. 3) I learned all about the plan of God being demonstrated within seasons of pain: trust me, I understand and we’ll discuss soon! But for today… *drum roll please* I would like to share with all my heart concerning inspiration and the lies that tell us that we lack some.
21. Twenty-one represents the number of journals that are in my possession. Some are big, some small, some are fancy and some plain but all of them are filled with dreams, ideas, visions, and hopes for the future. Some of the journals are filled, others not so much but they are full of life and creativity breathed upon by the Father. One journal holds a manuscript, one is reserved strictly for songs and both bring me so much joy as I ponder on His goodness. For the past three or so years, I fell for the lie that I had nothing to say or that I lacked inspiration both utterly untrue. The fact that I’ve found something to write about every day for the past six years or so counteracts these beliefs.
The fact of the matter is, the more I move forward the more I recognize the lies I’ve believed for so long. As I embrace this recognition, freedom comes to remind me of who God says I am and all he has destined for me to do. I am equipped to do what he has ordained because within him lies all I need for my assignment. In the words of my pastor, ” I’m a sure thing because he is sure!” If I could encourage you with anything, believe what the Father says about you and move toward all that He’s promised for His life!
