Waiting In The Pasture

Hey there! It’s been a minute. I know I say that a lot but I know y’all forgive me because life happens.

I haven’t been idle though, just busy writing and living. Okay let’s get into what I want to talk to you about today. God’s timing…

Trust In God's timing & preperation

Chapter 14 of my book In The Dark talks about seasons of business. We more often than not compare our planting season to another’s harvest season. In my devotional this morning I read this and decided to share. It’s exactly what I aimed at portraying for #Christianpreneurs

Do I claim to have mastered it all? No. But I’ve mastered enough to empower and encourage those who are going through the wildernesses or pastures. There’s no benefit in what I’ve learned if I don’t teach/share with other’s. I love my fictional characters but I’m also an entrepreneur and I go through, gains, loses and the wait/process in between. Here’s the excerpt.


“The same is true for God’s timing and our preparation. Our job is to not run ahead of Him or lag behind. We should take natural, commonsense steps that are in line with His Word so we will be ready when He delivers our heart’s desire. As we step out in faith, He will show us the way by either opening doors or closing them. Sometimes that will require we do a new thing, and sometimes it means doing what we already know to do.”


Just a thought, if David has become a King when he was anointed, he might not have been the greatest psalmist known to man.

How to Combat Long Seasons of Wait.

Today, I’d like to share a snippet from Chapter 1 of In the Dark. Aptly titled My Jonah Moment,
.
“While in the vineyard, long periods of wait created a constant struggle between having Jesus in my heart and the enemy’s voice attacking my mind. Fear, doubt, despair, unforgiveness even anger at God. Why didn’t He answer me NOW?”
.
.
⚓️Learning how to wait is crucial for spiritual growth. But as Christians we feel we can’t admit that we fall short.
⚓️Owning your struggle and seeking Him for help is the only way to remain anchored in truth and hope.

Don't let long periods of wait distract you from the truth of God's promise.
📚In the Dark shows you how to wait and intentionally fix your mind on Him alone.

One Series. Ten Women. Amazing Testimony.

In pursuit of your passion. On your way to destiny. You sometimes, well more often than not, you gotta fly blind. These are those moments of uncertainty where you have no idea which direction you are supposed to go next. Neither do you know how long the darkness will last. What happens when you pray and you’re moving but nothing is happening?

Starting February, every other Monday, I will feature ten amazing women who have a great testimony to share. How did these ladies survive their flashlight moments when they could only see so far #InTheDark . These are women I admire a lot and when I reached out, they willingly answered my call. I can’t wait for you to know them better.

Through authenticity and transparency we are able to help others #GLOWIntheDark with #ConfidentExpectations in God. I love this quote by Rick Beneteau; It’s rather easy to shine in the light but to glow in the dark…that’s mastery.

Dikes of Courage In The Dark: An MLK Jnr. Insight.

On Friday I got the kids from aftercare and while we debated on what we wanted for dinner, my daughter blurted out. “Mommy it’s Martin Luther King Day on Monday and we don’t go to school.” I confirmed her statement and informed her and her brother that I had enough snacks to tide us over, all the goodies they liked. After they hollered in gratitude, an awkward silence fell over all of us. Then my daughter spoke again “I think we owe him something., In fact I know we owe him something.”

I sighed and explained, he has a National holiday and we could so some volunteer work. While her and her brother debated, I contemplated her statement and how I was feeling about the current state of the country. If Dr. King Jr was here today, would he be happy or sad. It’s as though we have regressed as a nation and as humanity.

Subsequently I thought about our sojourn here on earth. As the body of Christ, we were instructed to let our light shine. However I feel, rather I know like my daughter expressed, we as Christians are gradually dimming in the darkness of the world. Don’t we owe God more than that?Our faith and hope in Him are a response to His love. However in times of fear or uncertainty are we responding appropriately?  We are called to be witnesses and glorify God in all we do but when waves of uncertainty arise, do we stand strong and glow in His promise or cower to fear and dim the light that is supposed to shine?

This excerpt I found from Dr. King Jnr.’s sermon Antidotes of Fear expressed my sentiments exactly.

Courage faces fear and thereby masters it. Cowardice represses fear and is thereby mastered by it. Courageous men never lose the zest for living even through their life situation is zestless; cowardly men, overwhelmed by the uncertainties of life, lose the will to live. We must constantly build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.” DR. Marin Luther King Jnr.

We are told countless times in the Bible not to be afraid. We are promised that the Lord our God will not forsake us. Be are also told to be courageous.Therefore #InTheDark areas of life, build your confident expectations on the promises of God. That alone will hold back the flood of fear and give you what is needed to move forward in spite of what you see. Despite our detours or turbulence we must continue to each day “build dikes of courage to hold back fear” by holding on and embracing our season.

Abraham had a 25 year detour.
Paul had a 3 year detour
The Israelites had a 40 year detour.
I could go on and on…
Do you stop to imagine what would’ve happened if they’d left the race midway?On the road to destiny dark moments are a necessity. Fix your eyes on Him in confident expectation of good things to come.
