Have you ever been in a season of your life, where you ‘really’ felt like you were making a difference? Where you felt like lives were being radically changed and impacted through your hard works?
Well, just a little while ago, I was journeying in a genuinely good season just like that. It felt just right. This passionate pursuit of God’s presence to actively flow in and through me became my new normal. I was ready for the next. On the edge of my seat to see the Spirit move. I was infatuated with the new positions of leadership I was placed in. It was perfect in my eyes.
Not long after that season, a painful situation surfaced that wasn’t a very admirable or life giving part of my life. Dishonouring words were spoken about me, by someone whom I trusted and admired greatly. Subsequently, I was labelled in that moment just a “little leader.”
When I heard and witnessed those words for myself…my confidence came to a cease. My feelings of making a real difference and a radical impact vanished, no where to be found.
I felt small.
A vault of anger and bitterness engulfed my tattered heart. I wanted to shake and scream in resentment. A time of processing my emotions began to take place. I embarked upon a healing journey, in pursuits of peace and love for that person once again.
Sister, the next time you are abruptly labelled “little” like I was…I encourage you to grab a hold to these words:
“You were created to be fearless, by the fearless one.”
He has created YOU to boldly approach His throne and pursue His presence. The giants, the never ending expectations, the oppressing constant pressures, the corrupted voices of the enemy, and the twisted words and labels are NOT your portion. No longer, do you have to be enslaved.
2,000 years ago on the cross, Jesus said “…It is finished.” (John 19:30)
He conquered everything. In that compelling moment in biblical history, the power that overmastered death and the grave, became your accessible power, to use with authentic balance and grace.
Fearless leader who may be hiding in the shadows of fear and regret, come forth.
Mighty Woman of God, YOU are enough. Rest easy knowing that you are, in the hands of the fearless one and He is pleased.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
(2 Corinthians 12:9)
Brave soul, rise up high out of the ashes.
Until Next Time,
