It was time. It was time for me to do what the Lord had been asking of me for a little over 7 years. But, in the 8th month of the 8th year from the initial request, I began to realize that I needed to find my voice, and God reminded me of His request: “I need you to be vulnerable before men.” I am eternally grateful for the Loving, Patient and Faithful God that He is. He provided the Ruach Breath that I needed to begin the transformation He so patiently waited for me to embrace. Ironically, in the 8th month of the 7th year, I came boldly before His Throne of Grace and let out a cry that came from deep within my soul. I simply said “Daddy, I feel like a caged bird crashing its wings against the cage, and the more I try to fly, the more I feel like I am going to die.” I want to make mention of the importance of the times mentioned with respect to the Biblical meaning of numbers. 8 is the Number of “New Beginnings” and 7 the Number of “Completion”. I’ll just leave it at that.
The first Blog of Unveiled by Dominique (click on the link to the left to read) was the beginning of something much bigger than me. I followed the first blog with finally realizing that the cage door had been opened and now it was time to take flight…But to where? I didn’t know why the caged bird sang… the poem, of the same title, written by the late Maya Angelou made more sense to me than ever. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
And so the story began…Yes Lord, I will finally Obey!
