I want every listener who is currently in that place, to know that I too, have been there. After walking away from a job that God revealed would not be a good fit for me, months went by without me having a job. One day, I remember casually standing up from the couch with one of my family members, walking to the bathroom and closing the door. The bathroom was the only place where I had complete privacy. I sat down on the floor to finish reading the email about another job rejection and I couldn't help but begin to weep. After being rejected from over 100 jobs, this particular rejection hit home hard. It made me feel as though I was so parched that exhaustion began to latch on to me like a leech depleting me of my faith and energy at the same time. My savings had been depleted, I knew that the money from my link card wouldn’t last always and that it would soon come to a swift end, my uncomfortable living situation made my plight of life feel so top-heavy that for the first time in my life, I was literally stuck to the floor. I tried to get up, brushing this rejection off but I couldn’t move. It was as if my body had reached this state of complete paralyzation.
This month, I believe that God wants everyone reading this blog to know that even when the brook runs dry, He has a plan that has already been set in motion for you. Whether you have lost a loved one, lost a job, lost your home, experienced turmoil in your relationships, experienced financial hardships, or just straight up been having a hard-knock-life, know that the plight reveals God’s light.
We want to take a moment to say thank you in the middle of this pandemic. Thank you for making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, thank you for always having a divine plan set in motion for us, even when we cannot see it. This month, instead of getting stuck in what things may look like, we pray that you help us to filter our eye gates so that we may walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV). We pray for your gentle encouragement, abundant provision, and your apprehensible words of confirmation. Help us to release our situations into your hands so that we may dream big, think big, pray big, expect big, and believe big no matter what our reality may be. May we navigate through this month understanding that the plight reveals your light which means that there is always fresh fruit, clear direction and indomitable protection, even in my dry brook. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
