I had a conversation with someone a week ago, which caused me to do a bit of self evaluation. "Do the expectations that I set for my self, supersede the expectations that God has for me?"  This is definitely a tough spill to swallow, seeing as I often feel like I am completely failing at everything that I am trying to do.  I am a self proclaimed multitask-er, who never completes the task that I start often.  Might be the reason I have two blogs that I barely post on, and an online store consisting of three items.  I try to put my hands at everything, often without consulting God on the matter.  I dive in without thinking about how deep or shallow the water is.  God knows the plans, He sees the future, but I must obey.  I may not know where the path is going to lead me, but He is by my side and will guide me.  I can dive in as long as I have my Life vest preserving me, securing me.

When we make decisions without God we are committing self sabotage, neglecting the one truth that never leads you in the wrong direction.  Even if you get off the path, if you pray and seek him, He will make the way straight.  You can not be everything to all people, so just be who God created you to be.  The only true expectations that matter are found between a leather bond book stamped with gold.

Being refined.

Peace and Love,

  1. I am so proud of you, Jeema. It's obvious you have been quite contemplative and are hearing from God. I'm praying that you will make the moves that He tells you to.

  2. Speak on it Sis! I want you to know I am in the same exact place. I sat here reading, but wondering if I could have written this myself. Much strength to you on your journey.
