It’s Like Fire Shut Up In My Bones

I tried to not blog today. Did you hear me, I tried to dismiss it so I could “take a break” but first let me say there are no breaks when you have a calling on your life. There are no breaks when you have dreams and purpose in your life. It’s a burning that goes down from your head to your toes and is inside your core. And I don’t know who needs to hear this but whatever your questioning or fighting but it burns inside of you, you gotta do it. It’s like telling a bird not to sing. It’s gonna happen, all you have to do is open your mouth and put forth an effort. Once you put forth an effort, it’s going to happen. May not happen when you think it will happen or may not happen as you think it should happen but it will happen.

Dismiss the narrative in your head. The narrative in our head is a child inner wound, it’s your pain and it’s your grief. The mind can change in a snap. We can think happy one minute and be stressed the next. But you know what doesn’t change? Your heart, your soul, your core. We just have to align our minds with our souls. As my shrink has told me 100 times, “you’ve got to get your soul food”. She didn’t say get your mind food or feeling food, she said “soul food”. That’s what you were created to do, that’s your purpose, that’s your gift. Every single thing we have gone through is for our purpose. I know this because the more I listen to people’s stories the more it confirms that this happened so that could happen. I’ve seen it and witnessed it so many times in my life that it overwhelms me just trying to recollect the moments. But I know I’m not so special that I’m the only one. I hear it almost daily. Things happen for a reason and connections are not coincidental.

We gotta be open to people. Stop división over race, politics, and religion. You gotta welcome all like they are your lifeline because they might just be. When we are hungry we don’t have a prerequisite for the server to get served in the restaurant. We don’t care what their religious belief is or their political belief or the color of their skin. Why? Because when we are hungry that food is our lifeline to continuing to live by nourishing our body. Works the same way when you are trying to heal, serve your purpose and calling. Becoming better is your lifeline to healing your wounds. Someone said, “ why go to grief counseling, you get over it in time.” WHAT? No honey I’m sorry but that is not how it works. We don’t just get over it. How about we bury old bones like a junkyard dog. You may think it’s gone but it’s not gone. It’s there it’s just gonna rear its ugly head in your relationship, in your job, when you least expect it. That pain that you are not willing to transform you will transmit. I encourage you to take nothing lightly, keep your eyes and ears open. God uses everybody and I mean the people you least expect can change your life. They do not have to look like you or believe like you. Claim the affirmation today and have a great weekend!
