Today was a good day. My day started with prayer and thanksgiving to my Divine Father. From there my ride to work was blessed with listening to Shirley Cesear singing that "God can take care of it" followed by CeCe Winans singing, "It's Gonna Be Alright". Upon arriving at work, my morning was further blessed by my Daily Word reading "Yes" which spoke of God's blessings and how things were going to be okay. I was armed with a great "breakfast" and was ready to take on my day.
It went progressively well until I made a phone call that would send me into a semi tailspin. Upon the rude and childish termination of the call by the other party, I immediately went into prayer because I was not going to allow myself to be reduce to hells level. I called in some "soldiers" who were armed and ready to jump into the battlefield. After my soldiers fell in line, the situation was for the moment mitigated and all was well. At least for the moment anyway.
Later that evening, as I tried to do my part to put some rationality into the situation, I was met with the devil's incarnate and was called one of the most heinous names you can call a woman and while I was immediately offended, I realized it was another call to action. I put my armor back on and called on my Divine Father and one of my soldiers and we were ready to defend my honor and put some water on hells fire. The situation was once again mitigated; well as much as it can be and I let go and let God do what He needs to do from this point on.
Life has taught me some ugly lessons and exposed me to some ugly people and today I was met with both. Through my faith, I was shown what true resiliency is and I was awestruck by it. I was shown that my friends are the kind that you don't really wanna test when it comes to defending me and mine. I know that the power of being rational even when everything in you is telling you otherwise and most of all, I showed that the power of a woman is nothing to be tested especially when her mind is made up to right a wrong. I'm proud of my will, my determination, my friends, and most of all my faith. I know now more than ever that there is nothing that is brought to me that I can't get through and that a strong mind and sheer determination is better than reducing oneself to the pathetic actions of others.
I lifted this post from jus.b.fli and it's befitting of this post....
"Never expect a blessing without some burdens.
Sometimes the burden is a sign of just how valuable the blessing is.
Don’t let the burden blow the blessing."
After the experience I had, I know there's a great blessing in store for me. Thank you Jesus!!!
