It’s been awhile since the last time I’ve written a post. As I’ve stood back and watch God move in my life, I’ve heard God say many times, “Ring the alarm because today is not the day to be quiet!” As Sisters Healing Against Mental Emotions™ (S.H.A.M.E.), it’s important that we stand up and ring the alarm because it’s your time to “BIRTH BIG DREAMS” with BRILLIANCE!
In my book The Thorns Within…I write, “As women, many of us have had a dream that couldn’t be birthed. We cried and sought ways to become pregnant in an effort to bring forth the vision, but in our attempts, the vision was broken. God had promised Abraham children that would become a great and mighty nation. Imagine being giving this type of information, only to not see the fruit of your loins quickly. As a believer of God, you would feel cheated and angry.” (p. 42) I go on to write, “…like Sarah in the Bible, how many of you have aborted your embryo only to be jealous of others who have labored through the process?” (p. 43)
If we’re honest with ourselves, many of us suffer from the spirit of jealousy because we fail to “push forth” our vision that God has impregnated us with days, weeks, or years ago. How much longer will we as entrepreneurs sit on our dream(s)? How much longer will we complain, roll our eyes at other women who’ve pulled themselves up from the ditches, who’s put forth the effort to excel, or who promote true SISTERHOOD?
Today is not the day to stop dreaming, wanting, or yearning for a better tomorrow. It’s not the day to stop being friends with someone because the “spirit of jealousy and truth” was too great for you to handle. As sisters, it’s imperative that we learn to wait on God, but most importantly, listen and heed to God’s words in the interim while He gives directions and purpose for our journey. ~ShameNoMore
Waiting is not a bad thing,
