GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! The last UNOFFICIAL days of Summer are upon us as the 3 day weekend of Labor Day arrives. I pray that everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day. I will be doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Still recovering after a LONG August as all the students are up and going in classes and it's been a great first week! God Bless everyone on today and it's your time to make the BEST THINGS in your life happen for you!
So, summer is OVER...and I mean OVER!!! I really don't have any words for what this summer was for me. An up and down MESS! LOL! I learned a lot about not only other people, but also MYSELF! I learned that folks aren't all they say they are and that people don't care about you and stay like they say they will. About myself...I learned that I can do things on my own. It's not as easy, but my faith in God has totally grown so much in the last few months and I thank God for that. You see, God pulled a lot of people out of our lives these last few months. A complete SHIFT of who we were and the people around us happened like never before. I really looked like "WHY GOD?!?" I liked who I had around me, but God said "They can't go with you, where I'm taking you!" I don't know if this happened to anyone else this summer, but that stuff tripped me out! A lot of alone times and days where it was no one but Jesus and I. Folks I noticed only wanted to be around me for certain reasons or said they would call and said they cared, but I found out they really didn't. I had to learn to truly be comfortable with myself and in my own skin. I want to encourage someone today because maybe you went through the same things that I did this summer. LET THOSE PEOPLE GO! Things may have been HARD for you this summer, but at the end of the day....THANK GOD THAT YOU MADE IT THROUGH!
This summer made me think about the story of Joseph in Genesis. How his own brothers sold him into captivity and it looked like it was all over for him. But see, God has to GET HIM ALONE, away from all he knew and loved, just so He could minister to him and get him to the place he needed to be. Not just to a place where he helped out himself, but to a place where in the end, he ended up helping out his own family and countrymen. See, we sometimes throw a FIT when God takes people out of our lives. We act like we won't make it by ourselves and that being alone is way too hard. I even know Winter is coming and being alone can be even harder then. I just want to encourage some today that it's time to go for your dreams again and that you can MAKE IT! At times, when we separate ourselves from certain people and things, a whole new thought process opens up for us. We need to get our mindset, hearts, and souls right for where God is trying to take us. We have to realize that not everyone can go to GLORY with us! Not everyone can stand at the mountain top with us when God gets us there. You are going to MAKE IT! Don't worry about who is there or not there, JESUS IS THERE! Even the people who walked away and did you dirty, don't worry about them, just pray for them. God has so much in store for you and just know the best is yet to come! God still has 4 months left in this year to work out a miracle in your life! Be Patient, Stay Hungry and Determined! GO FOR WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU! GOD BLESS!
