Sometimes when on a journey, we become weary because when we look ahead, the end of said journey appears to be unattainable. I got to day 5 of “One Day my Soul Opened Up” and got stuck. On what exactly, I am not sure. But I am continuing this journey because I know what lies ahead and the voice that needs to be heard.
“Thy WILL be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven…” “Whatsoever you loose on Earth, will be loosed In Heaven, Whatsoever you bound on Earth will be bound in Heaven…” WILLINGNESS… The controlling and directive faculty of the mind that determines consciousness and character. (One Day My Soul Opened Up, Day 5 p. 51). in 2008 when God asked me to be transparent before His people, I flat out told God NO! My reason was that I was not willing to be vulnerable, to allow people behind my veil, to show a sign of weakness before people who thought I had it all together. God began to reveal to me my life in a way I had not seen it before. It was not until August of 2015, that I began to get a glimpse of what was holding me back from my purpose. I often think of Jesus, when He was in the Garden of Gethsemane and in a moment, He asked God the Father “Take this cup from me…Not my will but your will…” To be willing to do something takes courage. Jesus Christ was willing to endure all of that pain so that we may have life everlasting. At the time I was not courageous enough to tell people that I was broken person inside living under the shadows of my childhood. In one of my previous blogs “Broken Crayons Still Color” I was reminded that out of my brokenness, God had multiplied something… now I have something to be able to share with others, a truth, a testimony about what is now an empowerment movement, a Women’s Empowerment Movement called Tear the Veil Inc.
“That word is ‘willing.’ It’s an attitude and spirit of cooperation that should permeate our conversations. It’s like a palm tree by the ocean that endures the greatest winds because it knows how to gracefully bend.” -Stephen Kendrick
The invisible force behind all things seen. Ponder on that for a moment. In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth… And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the water-Genesis 1:1-2. The Invisible Force behind all things seen. That is Creativity defined. Creativity comes from the inside and then comes out. It starts with a thought; going back to the Book of Genesis, when God created the Earth, He realized that the Earth He had just created was without form and void..And He moved upon the face of the waters and said ‘Let there be light…And guess what? There was light. If we are all created in the image of God, ad we have the likeness of God, then we are just as creative as God. But we fail to tape into that creativity at times because our thoughts are a reflection of our experiences. What does that mean? I was unwilling to be creative because I was in a broken space. I was not allowing my thoughts and word produce results, because I refused to act on it. Iyanly Vanzant says the creation process is: Thoughts + Word + Action= Results. Without those three, there is no result. Period.
What are you WILLING to CREATE Today?
