I saw this photo from Shawn McKenzie and loved it. I wrote some encouraging words below it for women like this. I pray it blesses you. The revelation blessed me.
If you are this, understand that every man is not looking for this. Make sure you’re ok with that fact and remember to not take a step back waiting for someone who doesn’t understand the value of this, to catch up. They just may not be in to you, or ready for you, or just not checking for you. That’s ok. If there is only one for you that means don’t gaze into the eyes of every man in the multitude wondering if he is the one. It may sound cliche but fix your eyes on GOD. If you deal in Faith you know HE will not make you ashamed, HE knows what you need, want and how to give it to you. HE is your Father. Your greatest champion who knows and calls you by name. Speak your name and who you are and what GOD has Himself said about you. It will help you to remember you’re worthy. As for me, my name is Bridgette. Though I had strayed I am called and chosen. I am waiting, I am patient, I am grateful and I Am LOVE.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
Sometimes when we pray we can tend to want instant results. And if we don’t see those results we begin to lose Faith. We begin to take matters into our own hands and trust in our own strength. Our futile effort to do what we already asked GOD to do many times puts us in a position of feeling worse and doing wrong things in an attempt to get to the right place. Worse off than if we would’ve just prayed, trusted and stayed still, we now are praying harder than ever before. But now we’re praying for GOD to fix up what we messed up and still Bless us in the way of our initial prayer. If only we would’ve just believed in GODS timing….
If you pray in Faith in this new season GOD is going to show you signs, bit by bit, of the miracle to come. Pay close attention….because “Signs and Wonders accompany them that believe”. Be Patient and Keep your Faith, Confidence and Hope in GOD. No matter how hard you work at the thing you’ve prayed for, if it’s not GODS TIMING you are completing an exercise in futility. Be ready and in position…on your knees with hands clasped, looking to Heaven so that when GOD gets ready to do what you’ve asked HIM to do….you’ll be ready.
Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart. And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7 GNB)
