The Journey.

What does it take for you to move your feet?

What does it take for you to be bold and step out of the boat?

How many lives do you need to know are dependent on you walking in your God-given purpose?

We put a lot of stipulations on when, how, and where we are going to move when God instructs.

The author and finisher, we call Him.

The Alpha and Omega, we call Him……Yet, we are willing to walk in circles over and over again in order to fulfill what we deem is the right way.

I plead to you today to allow God to instruct your every move and TRUST that He will never leave or fail you. Learn from others mistakes. Don’t always wait for bad circumstances to learn the lesson. Let the Israelites motivate you……would you rather a 10 day journey or 40 years?! It’s up to you…..

Prayer.

Praying for all the heavy hearts.

Praying for peace in your families and your homes.

Praying that God gives you the strength to finish this year strong.

Praying that he restores your faith, so you can run this race knowing that He’s got your back.

Praying that you prosper in all areas of your life.

Praying for those who have financial struggles, that God will open the window of Heaven and rain down blessings.

Praying for those who need healing in their body or for a loved one. God is the Doctor of all doctors and I declare by faith and in the name of Jesus that you are healed.

Praying for those who stopped believing and need God to show himself. I pray that He whispers to your heart and shows himself to You in a new and beautiful way.

I pray for all those dealing with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I pray in the name of Jesus that those chains be broken from your life right now. I pray that He sends you grace and peace to get through this,

I pray that as a community of beautiful spiritual beings that we love one another and be the light of the world.

I pray that God blesses you more than you know what to do with it.

This beautiful soul committed suicide today. Simone Battle is her name. I never heard of her and I am not sure that I have ever seen her picture, but today on my Instagram her picture is everywhere.

They say “RIP” as the caption. My first thought……oh no I wonder what happened?!

I read on only to find out, she’s pretty famous and the saddest part….she didn’t die, because she had an illness or got into a fatal accident-but, at some point she felt completely worthless and saw that the “only” way out was taking her life.

Several things, break my heart with this story, ONE THING completely frustrates me. 

All of the captions and I mean ALL of the captions that I SAW, referenced her beauty. Like the only reason you are sad that she took her life is because she’s beautiful ?? Now, I know alot of people didn’t know her personally, so they can only speak on what they see…….BUT, as you can see she is BEAUTIFUL, BUT her beauty couldn’t save her from the hands of depression.

We live in a society where everyone is completely obsessed with the way they look, not even necessarily for themselves, but for those watching. We have to look like we have it all together, even if we don’t. As, women some of us hide behind our make-up and some men hide behind the price tag of whatever they own. NONE OF THAT CAN SAVE YOU FROM THE HANDS OF DEPRESSION.

I know nothing about this young lady, besides the things that I’ve read online. One thing I didn’t read online, but that I’m sure of is, 24/7 people could have been telling her that she is beautiful, but that didn’t help her from depression. The crazy part would be if she got to a point where she didn’t even like the way she looked….wouldn’t that be something?!

My point is, we have to dig deeper in our relationships with people. My friends dress nice and are attractive, but I am connected with them to know when there is problem even when their hair is nice and make-up on point. Love people as deeply as you can. Honestly, care even for strangers. Say hello more often. Smile when walking down the street. Say thank you and let someone know they are appreciated. Never stop telling the ones you love that you love them. Lastly, be more compassionate, because if the first thing you think about when you hear about suicide is “they are so selfish”, then you’ve completely missed the point. I’ve never heard a depressed person say how much they love themselves and this is why they are committing suicide. Try to be more understanding. There are so many people who genuinely need help and love. Let’s stop being so selfish and be a positive impact to a crying world.

And if you haven’t heard it today I LOVE YOU AND CARE ABOUT YOU!!!
