This morning I was thinking of my daughter and how she was going to the 6th grade. I began to praise myself as a good parent and having a good support system. I began to praise myself when having financial situation was still able to maintain and give my kids what was needed. I was praising myself for being a single parent when I didn’t ask or expected from my life. What a good cry that was!!
….then I was reminded; I’m not in this place because I’m so strong but because God has more strength who was I to give myself credit for being so strong and this super mom
I’m in this place because if I fought that battle he couldn’t have … I’m in this place because I know who I am and the God that I serve. I’m in this place because I put all my trust and hope in him. I’m in this place because I give my worship to him as an offering. I’m in this place because I don’t run around like chick little syndrome” the sky is falling’ but having trust in God with Everything. You thinking well ok…..But wait! it took complete liberation and hands up to get here.
Some would say to me ‘Tanisha you walk like you have no care in the world.. I say to them ‘God got it’. The glimpse of my destiny God has shown me is greater than my worries.
This week my devotional song has been by Tamela Mann ‘This Place. Thank God for revealing why this song was placed in my heart. Thanks to Pastor John Adolph prayer line confirmation. He kept mentioning this place coming from Exodus 14:10-14. I’m In this place where critics, gossipers, disrespect, division can some from folks that I could talk with, sit by, work with and even pray for that I’m OK with. Fear not, Stand still, and Check out God. I am living my life in This Place
Here’s the caught, He moves us to greater, an even better place in him
