Last year, everything I did, hurt. When I preached, it was painful. If you saw me at your event, I hurt. If just visiting a church, I was in pain. Working in the community, pain. I’m talking physical torment.
Nope. I didn’t talk about it. My family didn’t know. I was not aware of the why, so I pushed through it while looking for answers. Until a couple of months ago, I had no idea how serious it was and how near my body was to being beyond repair. My God is so good y’all! No residual issues! Grateful is little until you see how much you needed Him and didn’t even know it. God’s interruption of a natural disaster is a #miracle.
About mid-year 2017, God began telling me that I would be cutback, hibernated for a winter season. He meant it, too – for ministry, church, relationships, you name it. The pruning began.
After a gruesome and painful process to ‘right alll the wrongs,’ I am now on my journey to, not just healing, but wholeness. I feel so much better, #physically. And I see so much clearer, #prophetically.
At this point, God is literally teaching me what biblical “rest” means and what it looks like in practice. This is a quieting and enriching journey. I am discovering the true authentic relationships in my life. My quantities are decreased but my quality is rising.
If you find yourself in a quiet season, embrace it. #Winter looks scarcely fruitful, dim and uninviting, but restoration is happening underneath the surface. #Spring comes soon enough.
This year God is opening doors to more. Some doors are for us to walk ‘out’ and say goodbye. 2018 is a cleanup year. 2017 was #rough but God made us #tougher! Great things are on the horizon.
I am thankful for you, my family, church family, and friends. Thank you for the prayers and encouragement. Hugs and love ❤️. #MoreInStore #PreparedForTheBest
