Ever have one of those days or even seasons that it seems like everything you have believed you were to be about or your purpose is coming into question, seemingly hijacked?
You’re dredging through mud up to your waist? One moment you were confident, bold, and ready to tackle all that was inside you, a dream becoming reality kind of stuff…but then…that season creeps in…suddenly everything seems upside down and you begin to believe perhaps you made it all up? Spiritual amnesia sets in and you can’t see clearly anymore.
I know I have had those moments, even seasons. Remember we have all had these moments at one time or another. We have a very real enemy that doesn’t rest. Read on, there is hope for you.

Friends this is when God sends those special people around you that speaks into your life in such a way that you feel like you could create a whole universe and are fully confident it will be inhabitable…all the while you are shaking in your boots at the mere thought of it all?
They point you back to Jesus and will remind you of all that God has been building on the inside of you on your life journey while lovingly dispelling the lies that are robbing you of your purpose and vision. After all, they see the bigger picture of you and what’s in there even when you can’t.
When you get stuck and lose your way they are scribes who remind you where you were and how far you have come. These ones have superman like vision to see right through all of your muck to help you see the jewels buried deep inside. Yes, your universe-creating ability to them is a done reality and they will stop at nothing less until you can see it for yourself.
Moving forward is the only option in their eyes…they will help you find your missing tools. That universe is becoming more possible, heck even plausible. Community is so important. Find your people, you will need to remind them and they will be there to remind you.
Father, thank you for those whom you have put on our journey that point us back to Jesus and remind us of who we are. They are jewels in your crown. Priceless. Champions of the faith who build up and equip your body. Let me be one of them. In Jesus name. AMEN.
