I had a “moment” today. Okay, perhaps it was several moments. Where memories started to flood my mind, overwhelming every part of my being. The tears began to fall and I started to think, “I can’t do this.” I see dark circles under my eyes, I see me working incredibly long hours with no end in sight, I see…
My Poppa spoke to me in so many ways telling me it’s not what YOU see with your eyes in the physical, it’s what I’m doing for you in the realm you can’t see with your natural eyes. FOCUS daughter. Focus forward at the things I have promised you that are before you. Block out anything and everyone that attempts to pull you backwards. Your destiny can’t be found there. Shake the dust from your feet and keep moving forward, press forward.
That old worn spirit of discouragement will keep you chained to your past and bound in a unsafe place mentally. It’s time to cast that ragged garment aside and put on a garment of praise. I was starting to focus on how far I had to go, I lost sight of just how far I have come. I started to dwell on the what if I’d just done this and started to lose focus that God already KNEW every step and every misstep I would take. He had already had it figured into my destiny! He was already using it for the purpose He had for me. That made me shout hallelujah! I can’t mess up what God has already ordained for me!!!!
Now check out my Poppa! He likes to confirm what He tells His children. Right after I posted about looking forward I saw where a precious sister had posted, “Don’t you worry about nothing else but staying focused …from the mouth of my Godfather” Oh, I’m listening Poppa! Then while writing this my Father, my loving Father, said remember that picture you took where you thought you looked so wore down? Pull it up. Compare it to today’s. Wow. Progress. They were less than one month apart.
Emotional abuse wears on you just as much as physical abuse. The toll it takes on your body causes real physical issues. But God. Forward daughter. Yes. I had a moment today, but my Poppa picked me up and said stop looking back. Move forward. I thought maybe someone else needed that word tonight too. Just keep moving forward! Whatever it is God promised you… it’s in front of you, not behind. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

I see clarity in those eyes again! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
