Because I’ve gone through and have done some ugly things in my past, Jehovah has kept me humble. My past keeps me non judgmental. My past keeps me rooted in the fact that all I am or could ever be is because of grace. Now I should easily be able to extend grace to my sisters right? Who am I to be so critical about where she is in her life right now when I was just there three years ago? Sisters need a sister with a big heart. Love. Transparency. Correction in love. The truth from the Word of God and not our opinions. Can we be honest with ourselves and think about what we’ve been through and what we’ve done for a moment? Yes, I’m a queen. Yes, I’m regal. But I’m also real and I love God and His people. “Life for me ain’t no crystal stair.” And I have a testimony to share. Don’t you?
I don’t want to judge you sister. I just want to love you. Correction by the Word and Holy Spirit is good for us. It’s what brought me out of my mess. I’m every woman. I bet you can’t shock me. No matter what, you are a queen! Shop our new queen collection at https://goo.gl/1oA2Wn!
Me and one of my sisters who is an accountability partner for me and also a fellow minister, had coffee in her War Room the other night. The space felt safe and warm and more importantly anointed. It is so important that along this journey you have someone who knows the Word of God, who provides a safe place for you to lay your head, and who isn’t afraid to tell you the truth (what God’s Word says only- not truth adulterated with her opinions).
It is crucial that as we battle in the spirit against our own fleshly desires that we have someone who has been there or who has these same struggles but who knows how to fight in the spirit. What a heavy burden to walk around pretending that you have everything together, that you don’t struggle, and that your life is perfect.
As God’s anointed (like Sampson), we can’t lay our heads just anywhere. God has orchestrated and ordained “laps” for us for such a time as this. He gives us discernment about what to share and with whom. He puts people in our lives who will be vessels for Him to help us along this journey. Every now and then, you just need a cup of coffee in a war room to help you make it through, to help you fight those demons assigned to you, and to unashamedly bear your soul. I thank God for my sister and coffee in a war room. Dr.J. #coffeeinawarroom #spiritualwarfare #laptime #aplacetobearmysoul
