Married to the Unseen Promise

You see, despite what people may say,

 I am married to the unseen promises and will never sway

Sway from what He told me, I will continue to stand my ground, Because I know what He has for me, ‘Above all that I can ever ask or think’, that will always and forever abound

You see before God will ever allow anyone to come to me

Telling me ‘I am he, your husband-to-be”  The Lord has to sit down and review what kind of relationship he has had with Thee.

He has to make sure that this man has spent enough time with the Master,

Because my spirit is precious and pure like Mary’s box of alabaster

After, let me make this very clear, ONLY after the man has passed all the tests and filled out His waiver,

That God will decide if he is ready to manage my favor

Can I tell you a secret? The reason why some women have problems with waiting?

They think it’s taking too long, they forget about the promise, and they just start dating

Be anxious for nothing, but through prayer and supplication, WITH thanksgiving, make thy requests known”,

Is what the Word of God said, when you seem to be tarrying alone.

If I had to give an encouraging word, I would say this,

Please don’t get discouraged, and begin to think His promises are amiss”

He is testing your patience and wants to see if you will wait

Because in actuality, He has something in store for you that is so great!

You must remember one thing about your God,

Who He places in your life will NOT be a fraud!

Do you even realize who you are Woman of God? Don’t reprehend,

You have worth, ‘Prepared, Postured, & Predestined’, never vilipend

Remember Solomon, “her price is far above rubies”, he understood and he knew, But you know what would be even better, if you truly believed that statement too.

But the truth of the matter is this; God knows the plans He has for you,

And the Man of God He sends, before the beginning of time, was already foreknew.

Wait on the Lord; become married to His unseen promise,

Because in the end, you do NOT want to be labeled as the doubting Thomas!

I challenge you, ALL Women of God, to become married to His unseen promise!  Wait on Him.

I Like Me, Do You Like Me? If Not…Who Cares?

As I sit here, hands on home row, reminiscing on what has transpired throughout my life, I realize three things:

  1. I cared entirely too much about my physical appearance
  2. I based my happiness on how others viewed me
  3. I was miserable

Why? I have NO idea.  Well, maybe I may have a little tiny clue on why I acted in such a way.  When I was younger, I had huge bucked teeth—some could compare me to Goofy. I was a gangly little thing– literally having to hold onto something or someone as there would be huge gusts of winds.

I wish I could steal back those moments that seemingly defined my childhood and early adult life. Where others called me dumb, ugly, or stupid, I wish I could have said, “WHO CARES, I LOVE ME!”

I had so many things that I wanted to pursue throughout my life.  If I only tapped into the potential that I had, I could have achieved greatness at such a young age.  Unfortunately, I didn’t do as much as I could have done because I was ALWAYS looking at everyone else and wondering what they were thinking about me.

For those who can relate, I will say this– I can almost guarantee you that you have greatness within.  Everyone, and I repeat, EVERYONE has something to give this world. You have some special talent or gift that can change your environment.  Please, don’t allow others or YOURSELF to hinder that treasure within.

 

Who are you when no one’s looking? What talents and gifts have you stifled, hid, and/or kept trapped inside of you because you were too busy worrying about what the other person was saying or thinking? I encourage you to be you! If you’re writer, WRITE!, singer, SING!, dancer, DANCE!, painter, PAINT!  You just may be the next great Edgar Allan Poe, Jennifer Hudson, Shawn Price, and/or Picasso—you never know.

So, I leave you with this question, who are you when no one’s looking? Embrace it!

I’m trying to keep these blogs really short… but I have much more to write, so consider this Part I.

How to Net (Work) (You)rself

Me: “I cannot believe my ears! Are you kidding me?!? You really don’t know how to network?”

Friend: “No, I never really knew how to.”

You see, before this brief excerpt of my conversation with a friend, I just knew everyone in the world knew how to, and had the confidence, to go into a room and light it up! (Ok, let’s be serious here… I simply meant be a shining star lol).

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.  I got smacked right in the face with the truth; not everyone likes or feels comfortable networking.

So, I decided to put together a short list of sweet somethings that I keep in the back of mind as I am networking in a sea of people.  These  somethings can also assist you in being authentic in your approach— working the real you!  Well, here goes…

At the end of the day, Work You!  Work what’s the best for YOUR personality, not anyone else.  Yes, you can take a little bit of advice from him, her, or whomever.  However, always tweak it to your personality.  If you’re a quiet person, EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE!  Don’t become loud and obnoxious just to get a contact!  It’s annoying and people see right through it.  You don’t have to be a Networking King or Queen, just BE YOU!
