I’ve been reflecting a lot and thinking about the season that I am in right now! I feel like God is teaching and shaping me. And sometimes, it hurts to be shaped. Negativity and other yuckiness needs to be thrown away. FEAR has to go away. For some reason, I allow fear to overtake me at times. Fear tries to push me away from the gifts that God has placed in me. I become fearful of the greatness that God has put in me. But I can speak this verse, this promise over me: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18. I am learning that I have a lot of stuff sitting inside me such as dreams, wishes and untapped gifts. I admit it; I like to hide. But I was talking to a new friend today and she said: “The world is waiting on you to come out of your shell.” This shell has to be broken, and God is the only one that can break it.
I don’t usually share videos of my singing, but last fall, I was having a praise moment in my car. I just had to talk to God through song. Now, I forewarn you that I am not a singer. I am one of those people who sings in my car and in the house. So, don’t expect Whitney or anything. 🙂 I am sharing the song to reveal God’s love for myself and everyone. His love can disrupt the junk. I want His love to disrupt my junk.
