God can and will use anybody. Saved. Unsaved. Skeptics. Doubters. Haters. Fence riders. Anybody.
Because whether we choose to believe or not, his will will be accomplished. Whether we choose to praise or not, all glory is his. Whether we choose to walk in our purpose or not, God’s work will be done.
So even though Harry gets on your last nerves and jumps through hoops to ruin your career, nobody can block what God has for you. God is using Harry to test your faith, to see if you’re going to let Harry disturb your peace. The next level has a few Harry’s so if you can’t tackle one what will you do when four are tag teaming you?
And Harry thinks he’s stopping something but all he’s doing is positioning you and getting you in front of the right people. Your name is buzzing because Harry can’t keep it out if his mouth. God will use Harry who’s never seen the inside of a church in his life and only believes in himself. You see it’s not about Harry at all and it’s not even about you. God’s will will be done.
Concerning ourselves with other people will always be a waste of time. No one can stop your destiny, not even you. Our steps are ordered. If I haven’t learned anything in 2018, I’ve learned the lack of control I have. God’s running the show. I’m truly learning what it means to surrender.
It’s crazy how I can look back and see how everything lined up perfectly. Maybe not how I wanted things to go initially but as time passed, it all makes sense. Hindsight is 20/20 right?
I’ve found myself growing frustrated with other people especially when they don’t do what I tell them to do or are trying to derail me. What I’m still learning is not only that I can’t control other people, people are free to be whoever they want to be. They don’t have to listen to me. Huge shocker.
But in allowing people to be who they are, I’ve been able to detach myself from expected outcomes and perceived notions and focus on Kaylia which is hard because I know what everyone else should be doing.
Randomness That Has Absolutely Nothing to Do with Anything:
I just finished what was arguably the best book I have read in my life. Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi definitely tugged on that longing I’ve been having to trace my ancestry. Besides that, Gyasi’s storytelling ability is spectacular. Between her and Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, I stan. Like Americanah, Homegoing will be one of those novels that I read annually.
Lately, I’ve been receiving constant reinforcements and signs that I should in fact continue to limit my use of social media and stay away from the news. Doing so has left me more time to pray and write. Ignoring the signs will only lead to disaster. No more disasters in 2018 if they can be avoided.
I’ve avoided think pieces about The Carters but listened to feedback from the pop culture pundits on my podcasts (The Read) and I agree and disagree, respectfully of course. We are all allowed to love the queen as we see fit however, Crissle understands my disdain for Shawn. Forgiveness may be on the horizon.
In honor of Scorpion, I’ve been listening to Drake since yesterday. Will Scorpion replace Take Care as the best Drake album? I don’t care what he talks about. I just want some heat. We shall see…
Okay, so clearly I haven’t been that far from the news. Pray for ya girl!
