Sean’s been a loner since he was a small child. He never had friends and was always made fun of. He kept to himself with the least amount of communication.
Can’t be vulnerable if I don’t reveal too much about myself.
His only problem was not vulnerability but constant attack on his character and his self-worth sabotaged. Sean looked in the mirror and hated the person he saw. There was nothing about that person he liked because he compared that person to other people.
Sean’s weight crept up daily. He gained thirty pounds in the last six months. That added to the cruel names he was called.
How can I get them to stop? Stop making fun of me. Stop calling me names. I don’t mess with anyone. I mind my business.
Polishing off a bag of chips and a chocolate bar Sean rolled over and drifted to sleep between sniffles.
God visited Sean in a dream that night.
Sean, God called, who’s making you vulnerable? Who is sabotaging you and making you feel worthless? I didn’t say those things about you. I didn’t create you to be any of those things. The enemy is using the young people to make you feel vulnerable and doubting your worth. Focus on what I’ve said about you—not them.
No longer will you succumb to the lies you’ve been told and be in agreement with them. I call you out of vulnerability, self-sabotage and worthlessness. I declare you are walking in victory. Victorious living is your portion.
Then next morning Sean remembered his dream. Deep within he realized he had more than a dream; he felt the difference within.
Sean went from vulnerable to victorious.
You have been looking for a change in your life for the better a long time. It seems like every way you turn you are met with one negative circumstance after the other. The pressure has been so intense that you wanted to lay down and die.
Don’t give up. Things are about to unfold before you in ways unimaginable.
I AM will unfold what you need.
Your provision will unfold. The desires of your heart will unfold. Divine health will unfold. Great family relationships will unfold. Job situations will unfold.
Joy will unfold. Peace will unfold. Praise will unfold.
Continue to praise your way before you see the manifestation.
Let faith prevail in the unfolding.
Do you know what time it is? Some of us do and some don’t. It’s time for us to get serious about our purpose and destiny. We weren’t put on this earth to take up space and party all the days of our lives. It does seem like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be.
Deep down inside us lies our purpose and destiny. At the right time it will be revealed to us. If we pay attention we will know. Once we realize it we should then move forward to fulfilling what is put in us.We are in time and time waits for no one.
Since that is the case I believe I’ve wasted enough time and I’m going to get busy fulfilling what I know to do.
How about you?
Ezekiel 36:26-27-The Voice
26 I will plant a new heart and new spirit inside of you. I will take out your stubborn, stony heart and give you a willing, tender heart of flesh. 27 And I will put My Spirit inside of you and inspire you to live by My statutes and follow My laws.
Sheila’s life was not a picture of good fortune and great blessings. Over the course of the years one tragedy after another occurred in her life. There was no one to comfort her, help her through the trying times. As a result of the trials and tribulations her heart grew harder and harder until she couldn’t feel anything. Sheila had become a crotchety old woman in her young age.
She didn’t have a friend. Her relatives avoided her. Family gatherings always ended up in arguments. Her invitations became few and far between. Sheila couldn’t help herself—she didn’t know how to stop causing trouble and wanted everyone to feel the pain she felt. Everyone was against her—or so she thought. She spent many nights crying herself to sleep.
One evening Sheila was flipping through the channels on her television. Back and forth, back and forth she flipped, not finding anything that struck her fancy. I’m not watching that minister on that Christian channel. I don’t want to hear what he has to say. After going through the channels a few more times she gave in and watch the minister.
Someone just tuned in who’s had many tragedies throughout their life. Nothing seemed to go right. The Lord is saying to you if you will release your stony heart to Him, He will replace it with a new tender heart of flesh. He will also put His Spirit in you and inspire you to live your life for Him. He said don’t be afraid. He has it all worked out for you—a glorious transformation and a new life-like you’ve never lived before. He loves you with an everlasting love and He wants to shed His everlasting love in your heart.
Sheila was stunned. The minister was speaking to her. She thought her life would always be the same—sorrow and no joy. Sheila fell to her knees and cried out to The Lord. I release my stony heart to you Lord. I receive a new heart of flesh. Put your Spirit inside me and inspire me to live for you. I believe I’ve been transformed. Thank you.
In an instant it felt like a weight was lifted off Sheila. She felt free-free to be. I won’t turn back. I won’t let anyone steal this from me.
Another year together has rolled around again
You asked me my desire, what did I want to do
I sat and thought a little while
Looked back over years past
Tears streamed down my cheeks
As I remembered what use to be
Sweet kisses that would send heat waves
Up and down my spine
Holding my hand to steady me as we walked along the path
Drawing me so close to you that were one
Singing our love song as we danced throughout the heavens
Streaming tears became a flood
Realizing those special moments are gone
My answer to you my dear
The way you use to do
Put some time and thought into
Whatever it is you plan to do
All the money in the world can’t buy
My hearts desire
Like never before
Come in and shut the door
To our secret place that has grown cold
Let’s reconnect and create fireworks of love
Romance me like never before
