It’s TRUE universally and personally. We all must step into these days of change with passion and purpose. We get to display our passion and determine our purpose, in the current state of affairs.
We have this unique opportunity to define what represents us, our values, and our convictions. While we do this publicly, we cannot overlook where we stand privately and personally.
It is in this day as we make history universally, we make internal progress by speaking our truth through the support we give in word and action, so much so that we are compelled to seek our authenticity, understanding what we are deserving of as expressions of the Almighty, and we become more convinced that it is our time to shine!
To shine means to have and to hold our rights for liberty, in health, in commerce, and in the pursuit of happiness in all areas of life. Many are now finally ready to protect, defend, and relish in these things to make them evident in our existence.
We are all equal, and equally loved. So let’s move in self love and love others in like manner.
Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
What is the instruction here to ponder the path of your feet, from God? Could it be that God is saying pay attention to where you are and where you’re going.
We are establishing our ways on a certain path throughout life, its the path that you’re on and the way, (being your thinking and attitude) inwhich you’re traveling. The path, consist of our existing life, our career path, the love path, the spiritual path, but mostly the path of awareness.
It’s amazing how powerful we are and we don’t even know it. Our choices for self love, self care, self respect and to reach for the biggest and best for ourselves are often tainted and shortcoming. As a mature adult, I’ve grown into speaking upfront to God and others about what I would like best. Of course our Sovergn God knows what is best for us, which is most often better than what we can imagine for ourselves. God is not shaken by our high and mighty wants, it is our high and mighty attitudes He rejects. What is established now and whats to come is formed from our awareness to
Be as we should be
Act from self love
Demonstrate love to others.
What is established now may have come from ways of needing to control, fear, manipulation, calculation, and insecurity. These ways have set us on a detoured path. The path to ponder on is carved out of an awareness that, it’s not personal. Whatever it is, it’s not personal. All that’s required of us is to focus on how we honor ourselves without attitude and revenge. If we can do this we eliminate conflict even when confrontation seems to be needed.
This is our faith in action. It proves we agree with God and believe we are who God says we are. This is our trust in God, in that we do our part and allow God to take care of the rest including others.
Faith and Trust are ways to be established in our lives.
Strength and courage are ways to be established in our lives.
A positive attitude is a sure way to be established in our lives.
People of God, God fearing folks, Marching Saints, where is your voice, your righteousness indignation?
Aren’t we leaders and ambassadors?
How often has it been that the church is the last in setting the standard on moral treatment, while raising the highest rant on immorality?
Disclosure; I love the church and the people of God as well as all others. However, I do think we need to set the bar higher on indignations worth speaking to.
There seems to be a smorgest board, to pick and choose from.
Well, this me too movement is one to pick, and I could name some others, but I’ll begin with this one, (It’s easier for some).
Many are coming out, many are wanting to tell their story, it’s not a story just for the elite to tell, you know. There is so much displacement of blame, some blame themselves, some blame their victimizer, some blame their caregivers and so on. But now is the time to close the gap on respect and equality.
Mother, daughter, woman, ladies, it’s time to commend your sister or sista for enduring the fear & shame, for conquering the intent of the enemy to demoralize & destroy, for overcoming with intention & tenacity and finally for the hope of the next generation, be open and vulnerable.
I challenge you to tell your story, listen to another’s story, cry together and comfort one another. It’s time for this……
A defining moment in history took shape this year in the form of the #Metoo movement. Across the nation women took a bold stand and spoke up against the sexual misconduct and mistreatment they endured unjustly and for far too long. The impact has been felt everywhere, from businesses, to churches and beyond. In this session we look at the problem, how we can address it, and how we can support the victims.
Now is the time to recognize women manipulated by impulsive lust, time to accept women preyed upon for ill gotten gain, and to unite with women of abuse and shame due to wolves in shepherd clothing, who only had one goal in mind. Some ladies may need to forgive themselves for what was too painful to admit. We have judged and punished one another for having the same wants and needs that have led us into the market place unprepared and unprotected while looking for love in all the wrong places.
