Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Welcome to a new week and a new month! It’s a time of newness, expression and becoming more in touch with the person God has created for you to be. So… I went to church yesterday and my Pastor spoke about how creation is waiting for the person God has created to be revealed here on the earth. As she continued to preach, I cringed a little bit because in that moment I was guilty… guilty of hiding the person God created. I bet a lot of you are like: “What???” “How???”
Well, here we go- it’s confession time!…
Like some of you, I have a plethora of gifts and talents that the world has no idea about. I can sing, write, make pottery, I play drums, and I can also perform some poetry- but over the past few years, I have allowed fear, opinions of others, insecurities, perfectionism to hinder me from revealing all of who I am to the world. To tell you the truth, I’ve placed confidence in others and their abilities but somehow forgot to believe in myself. If that is not honest and transparent, I don’t know what is… Like many of you, I’ve even convinced myself that what was burning on the inside of me ( a song, or a post) could be done, performed, or perfected by someone better or more skilled than I. That is ridiculous, right? It sure is… but these are the lies that many of us believe. We believe that we are not needed, we believe that once we’re revealed the world won’t like what is presented before them, we believe that we are not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough= all lies that the Enemy uses to keep up hidden, dormant and dying.
What if I told you that freedom was not in some type of chant or mantra but simply in the idea of coming undone. What if I told you that freedom was wedged between honesty and vulnerability? That freedom was locked in you losing control and just going for it?
Yesterday, I left service with a new mindset and a new attitude, while making a new decision. I decided that I was going to live my life coming undone, peeling back the layers I’ve used to cover who I am- I was going to reveal the one God created for this earth. So…. Ladies and Gents, I encourage you to come out of hiding. The world is waiting for you: your voice, your ideas, your cooking recipes, etc. The world is waiting for you and only you. You being the one God created is enough and extremely necessary to the world. Friends, I love each and every one of you and I’m praying fiercely for you- join me in this new season of life and let us become undone!
“For the creation eagerly waits with anticipation for God’s sons to be revealed.” Romans 8:19 HCSB
Until next time,
P.S. S/O to my Pastor and the Holy Ghost for WRECKING my entire life with a sermon that encouraged me to get myself together and to move forward undone!!!
