Often times the smallest comment or occurrence with a person can cause so much unnecessary tension, drama, worry and even shame. I can recall so many times where someone sent shade my way and I replayed the situation in my mind so many times to the point where I lost count. One thought led to another possibility and I would find myself in a bad/extra defensive mood. I know I’ve said it a thousand times, but I’m here to say it a thousand more. Shade, rumors, sudden disconnect, envy.. all of it comes with the territory of being successful. You can’t have one without the other. Psalms 23:5 reads ; You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. That alone is enough to confirm 1. You’re going places 2. You were built for this! God clearly shows us in this verse that we will encounter discomfort. All we can do is suit up and push through. I try my best to shed light everywhere that I go, but the truth is, I too have my moments of doubt. I fear sometimes and I triple check everything that I do. Nonetheless, I understand that those feelings are not of the God that I serve so I fight my way past it every time with prayer, praise and fasting. I often state that “I’m not religious…AT ALL.” Or “I’m just a spiritual person” and people allow their imaginations to take flight. To make myself clear, I am A BELIEVER. First hand, I know what God can do, and unapolgetically, I will praise him for it. WITHOUT the direction or permission of church folk (That’s another story for another day) I say this to say that, your beliefs don’t have to align with mine, but we all need SOMETHING to believe in. Something to hold on to when life’s uncertainties cause temporary blindness. Delayed doesn’t mean declined. The ones we admire the most, have climbed the deepest of valleys and have traveled terribly rocky roads to reach their peeks. They weren’t born with a special ingredient that we lack, they just happened to push through the discomfort. I challenge you to do the same. Finish this week with excellence! Until next time…
