Hey hey heey
The blog had been opened for a while today, but I didn’t know how to write what was on my mind. I read Itunu’s post and knew that God had me in mind when she sent out that post.
What am I thankful for today?
My flesh doesn’t like it. Ehmm, actually, my flesh hates it, but I am thankful for it. Being the last born can be very challenging, but people do not understand it. I’ve been told many times that I am lucky (more like blessed) to be the last born in the family because first borns have more responsibility and all. I agree.
But there’s this responsibility that comes with being a last child. It’s very similar to often feeling like a burden. Coupled with other things I’ve been feeling lately, it just felt too much to handle. A part of me just wants to run and hide somewhere for a long time. But if you know me well, you’d also know that I love spending time with my family. My sisters are a huge blessing.
A friend sent me an interview with Kari Jobe and her husband and I loved the part where they talked about how having a covering is important. No matter how your flesh wants to revolt and find its way, it is essential to have people you report to- literally.
I tweeted this yesterday and was amazed that Itunu’s post helped answer some of the questions I had.
At the end, God sees us and nothing we learn is ever wasted.
After my evening time with God yesterday, I sent a prayer to a group of 4 friends. I love how I knew they (we) all needed it. This year has been very funny for me and closest friends, almost like God is doing similar things with us in different ways. Lol.
You thought this post was about me having to depend on my siblings for now? Nahh.
I’m thankful for my dependency on Christ. He has it all figured out, so I don’t have to know it all.
If you’ve been stressing yourself out, you’ve probably forgotten your source. We’re depending on God and has God ever failed?
John 10: 25-30
Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all ; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
You might not have all the answers, but remember that the one you depend on does.
