Your light is too bright for some to handle. Shine anyways. The devil doesn’t like that shine that draws people to God and he will seek to destroy it. He will send people to discourage and move you off course, no one is off limits. Some of the very people you love might be moved by his ploy and not even realize it. It’s tempting to give in to them when this happens. I almost caved today, but God has placed the “right” people in my circle to lift me back up. I realized the importance of who’s in my circle too. After I realized this, my Poppa sent me one message after another as confirmation. He showed me several months back that my true circle would be small, but powerful. I am so thankful for their guidance and encouragement when I have tears streaming down my face and need help seeing the bigger picture.
When I look back to 7- 8 months ago, I am amazed at the change in me. Spiritually, emotionally, and physically, I have completely changed in all areas. It’s a true statement to say I’m not the person I was back then. Today I thought I needed to find “me” when the truth is, I know who I am and where I’m headed. I know the plans and destiny God has for me. How do I know? I’m walking closer to Him than I ever have before. Yes, He talks to me. It’s not an audible voice, but I still hear Him deep within my spirit and He confirms everything He tells me. John 10:27-28 says, “27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” My heart was grieved today because I have some people in my life that want no part of Jesus while others don’t believe He communicates with us in a real and tangible way. How then does He guide us? I want everyone to have that closeness I have and it just breaks my heart when they don’t.
A lot of tears today. I fell asleep early, but when I woke God placed this word in my heart to share and moved me to get up and write. He also spoke to me. The power within you is great and it’s too much for some people to comprehend. My closeness with you is real, it’s not in your head. It comes from seeking me. I’m drawing you closer, pouring my spirit out into you. Soak it up. Dust your feet of those that don’t believe it or can’t comprehend such power. Write what I give you and allow my light to shine from within. It’s going to be too bright for some people and that’s okay. You serve me not them. Wow, that was an on time Word for me. I scrolled through my FB and listened to one sermon after another confirming what He’d shown me. My heart still hurts, my Heavenly Father made it a little soft (alright, a lot soft). It’s okay to cry, it’s not okay to let anyone question who you’ve grown into. When God is shining through you, let that light shine through. Yes, you will be too bright for some to handle. Shine anyways! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
