Hi Darling Tribe,
It’s a great privilege to stroll into this space and send words to you. It’s something I’m always grateful for. Well, I think I should know how well you’ve been sailing your ship in April- Be reminded to STOP playing “losing cards” and START living victoriously. 1 Corinthians 15:57 – But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. God has designed us to live our lives this way hence tap into the supernatural benefits of being a kingdom child for your advantage. Be good, my darling.
What exactly do I have for you today? I do not know myself but I just want to pen down the battles of the mind I’ve encountered in the past few weeks. I hope it becomes light to you and you will find the courage in a childlike manner to always approach God in your high or low moment no matter how flawed or clean you think you stand! Join me on this ride, tribe.
Have you ever come across the word UNSCRIPTED? From my understanding, it’s just how you flow outside a stereotypic pattern of doing something. I don’t know if I’m right but I’m just trying to express myself as well. Okay, let me rephrase it this well…LOL. Unscripted is just letting your words flow without having to rehearse it in a way. I’m sorry but can I paint a better example for you for further comprehension? I need you to get it before pouring my heart to you.
If you’re like me, I love photography, studio, and photographers. The smile and every aura in it are relishing for me. Now, imagine yourself smiling at the camera for a couple of minutes just so your photographer can get the best shot and right angles for you. Having passed this moment, he went further to show you all that you both have been up to straight and raw from the camera……….. That means the pictures are unscripted without any touch of editing or photoshop gimmicks. I think we all should get it now?
It’s time to hear my heart out, tribe!
These past few weeks, I had to remind myself that God does not need the filtered, buttoned-up version of myself. He wants my reality. He wants my honesty. He desires the most honest and purest relationship with me and that means I cannot hide or hold anything back. So these days, my prayers are more like battle songs, words and laments —-And tribes, it helps because just as you would have your pictures straight from the camera, I went to him raw just as I am- no filter, no grammar, no makeup, editing, not even snap chat😂. It really, really helps me to give God my reality, the “I don’t know” prayers, the “Lord, Please help” prayers. the “I need you to show up now” prayer. There’s no need to tidy up before you cry out to Abba Father. He loves them unscripted and pure…
In prayers, have you been trying to make up for words to appear eloquent before your father? Honestly, He doesn’t even care about that but He cares so much about your vulnerability and state of your heart before Him. That’s total trust. It’s like saying a wife hiding from her husband…….please what’s the run from the one who owns her? Please let’s laugh😂😂😂. In other words, enough of the grammar, hide and seek before your father who knitted you together. Come as you are to Him and reason the matter together. What a table of sweet relationship He has called us to dine.
Take heart, my darling. I’m here to encourage you that God does not love you because of your title, how much you read the Bible, or how many times you go to church. They are important though. He loves you because he knew you before the end of time, CHOSE you and CALL you by name. So if ever a thought comes that you need to “do some editing” to get God’s attention, to feel significant or loved, shake it off, and remember Jesus chose death for your life. He never thought about it twice— not for a minute. And — He will do it again and again! Now that’s the most epic love story everrrr 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼! Hallelujah.
Dear heavenly Father, at the break of this very day, there are millions of people out there who are facing monumental troubles. It’s no mere metaphor. The heart of the sea is raging, waters are roaring and all kinds of things are falling down, help us to approach you in all realness and confidence and make your promise of ever-present help to feel present in our lives in Jesus name, Amen.
Ps- Next time you want to talk to God in prayer, do it unrehearsed- His tender voice is reaching out to you today saying”come as you are my child”. Be a child indeed and drop the adult behavior! #winks.
