Here I go running away from my writing again. It hit me last week as I was working out during my lunch that I need to start back again. But, I keep making excuses to why I cant get to it. I can’t promise that I will do it everyday but I will do my very best to stay commited to releasing my thoughts and feelings more consistently.
This past weekend was really good for me. My best friend came down and we got so much done. We are starting a new business venture together that I am really excited about. It means more that what my words can say, this “idea” is about obedience, growth, persistence, and patience.
While she was here we had some good talks and heard some interesting perspectives. We both have grown so much spiritually. We have gone through kicking and screaming but we did it together by constantly being there for each other and praying for one another. Words cannot explain how important it has been for me to have a friend that has been there for ALL SEASONS of life.
And although we still have a long way to go I can honestly say that we are both in the REJOICING phase as we look back on what God has brought us through.
During church service this morning we both had tears in our eyes for different resons I’m sure but they flowed freely because of what God has done for us.
I dont know all the answers and sometimes my thoughts are all over the place but I know that as of right now in my life I am at a good spot and instead of preparing for the next struggle, I choose to stay in this rejoicing period s long as God allows.
The thing about Christians is that we undergo change publically as God works on us and sometimes we will fall but as long as we dont keep falling in the same patch of mud i measure that as progress.
Bestie! I am extremely excited about this journey. I thank God for the Spirit of discernment. I agree, this will be a journey of obedience, growth, persistence, patience and purpose. Spending Easter weekend with you was AMAZING. One thing that I am learning is that it is not impossible to go into business with your best friend. I noticed that we did not allow the business aspect overshadow our friendship. We let the chips fall as they laid. When it was time to talk business, we talked business and when it was time for deep conversation and “Bestie” time, we did that, and when it was family and friends time, we did that too (Easter dinner was great and the pickles were on point, I will put a order in when I come back!). I am not naive to the fact that friendships have terminated over business quarrels and yes we will have disagreements but what a MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE. If we stay focused on God through this journey and continue our open communication, no matter what the visual outcome maybe, it will be a success! Why? Because God makes no mistakes and if He brings us to it, He will get us through it. Like Leandria Johnson says in her song “Struggle Not” Just believe and receive, the blessings that God has promised you. Dont you doubt for a second. God’s Word is so true. Praise Him for your victory, even when you’re going through. Struggle not for God has blessed you. I thank God for you Bestie and I am so happy to see you writing again. Your writing is real and it also helps me. Don’t run from your gift, embrace it and continue to allow God to use you. Be Blessed!
