Frustrated while you wait…

frustratedPiccuDOS

Could you imagine two sisters standing one next to the other being told by their Father that He had a gift to give each one of them, but they would have to wait for it. Both initially believed the father with the same level of faith, but one sister received the gift before the other. Yet still, the other sister sits while she watches her sister enjoy her gift as the years pass on by. Did the sister who received the gift first necessarily have a stronger faith than the other sister? This is not always the case. Believe it or not, having faith that’s able to stretch out years of waiting on God for something, takes more strength than just receiving what God has for you in a short amount of time. Still, some days it gets frustrating. You start wondering, ‘Did I really hear from God on that?’. When is this going to happen? Am I doing something wrong to delay this promise from coming? Why are you withholding things from me God?!’

The Original Call

originals

—> Struggling with feeling like people are stealing your purpose? Read this!<–

So, you finally found God’s will for your life. You’ve found your purpose; you found the path that you were meant to go down. You spent time in prayer seeking God and He’s finally revealed to you where you truly belong. You now realize every door that was shut on you and everyone who rejected you in the past was God gently nudging you and guiding you into what He really wanted you to do. The door was opened to you and you walked through it without looking back.

Unfortunately, when you went into your new season you now notice that people that never even talked about doing the work you’re doing are suddenly trying to do what God told YOU to do! What’s worse is that it’s plain as day that they are not graced to handle that call and they are trying to force something that God never ordained in the first place. What do you do when someone is committing identity theft in the Spirit against you?! There’s no need to fret or be distraught over this because God has seen it all, let’s turn to 1st Corinthians :

Christianese 101: God said you’re my WIFE!

wifey_orNAw–>Manipulation, propheLYING, and ABUSE!<–

Ladies, there’s a type of man that seems holy, but as time progresses their real fruit is revealed. They like seeming saved or ‘nice’ publicly, but behind closed doors they are a vicious snake. A man can pray, but that doesn’t make him holy. He can go to church, but that doesn’t make him righteous. Does he really believe in God’s word? Or does he just use God’s name to manipulate you into doing what his flesh desires? In this day and age, where people so easily lie on God and what He has spoken, it’s important to know the difference! Now, I already wrote a blog post about women who hear that a man is their husband(Read about it HERE), but some of you guys don’t have that problem. Some of you guys have guys telling you, you are their WIFE! Sis, if you’re not married yet, or know some single women, it’s time to listen up, because this one message is important! Let’s turn to 1 Kings 13:

Help God, I’m Stuck!

stuck

–>Feeling Stagnant?<–

So, you’re at this spot and seem to be staying at this spot. Everyone around you seems to be moving forward, but not you. You are still in the same pit that you’ve been in for years and years. You look at everyone else who seem to be effortlessly moving on in their life and start to wonder: What’s wrong with me? God, why can’t I seem to get up when it’s so easy for everyone else? Doors seem to be closing on me left and right and everyone I thought were close to me are nowhere to be found. It seems like every time I get up; I’m knocked back down to the ground again. I’m bruised and sore from all the times I tried to step forward in what I thought you’ve called me to do. God, where is this going? I’ve been praying for years! I’m stuck and I can’t seem to get out of this pit!

Christianese 101: Suffering Wars

suffering

I’m kind of more on the sarcastic side of speech every now and again. I will occasionally joke or comment about being tired from school or work, but it’s usually nothing that is that deep for me. I do it just to poke fun at my situation. However, I notice that people get to the point where they get this big chip on their shoulders where they feel like they’ve been through more than another person so they should get more blessings. Or they have been through more than another person so they don’t feel sympathetic to a person’s situation. I see Christians especially falling into that ‘but, I suffered more’ comparison game. Sometimes I feel like I’m in the hunger games of suffering and we’re all having a ‘suffering war’ to see who outshines each other in what they’ve went through. However, God doesn’t play this game though. No, seriously He doesn’t. He actually will bless whomever He wants whether or not they suffered as much as you.

Name Dropping

name

Life is about who you know, right? People get special treatment, special privileges and even specific jobs because they know people who work there or operate in circles that are higher in the totem pole. Sometimes even becoming enemies with the wrong people can put you in a bad place in certain circles. This is why some people in society will find themselves name dropping. They’ll let certain names of people come into their mouths so that they can gain access to places that they would never have access to before.

What saddens me is that I see people in the church doing this. If they find out that you’re someone special in a certain circle or spot in life they’ll mention your name just so they can get access. Even in jobs, people will try to pretend as though they know someone who you know just so they can get close to you because they feel as though you have something they can use. I can’t help but to laugh at all these things when I see this, especially in Christians because we don’t realize that we have the most important name of all that should always be on our tongues: Jesus.

The Prideful and The Prejudiced

Prideful

A lot of people say don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but how many people actually listen to this statement? Even in the Bible, God does not judge a person based on what man can see, but instead what He sees in the spiritual. However, I often see people in the Christian community, especially, judging and turning their nose up to people they feel are a certain way. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been down this path before. We’ve all gotten to a place where we judged someone without knowing them too well or made a hasty decision on whether or not to associate with a person because of their past or things they have said or done. Sometimes your decision to stay near a person was purely based on what a person could or could not do for you. The question you need to ask yourself is: Who are you?
