  3. Your words are so inspiring and this message is truly on time. This season has been brutal and it’s been hard to accept that God may have something different for me than what I planned for myself. Rejection after rejection have cause me to step back and truly hand my struggles to God because I’m clearly trying to knock down the wrong doors. Or the timing is not right, since His is different than ours. Thank you for putting into words what many of us are going through!

  4. If I didn’t know any better, I would say you took the words for this article from my own thoughts and struggles. It’s uncanny! My young sister, I thank you. Thank you for the validation, the clarity, the “You’re not crazy” exaltation that I can scream softly. Thank you for giving me the permission to remove the boxing gloves and let God do HIM. Blessings to you.

  5. You better preach up in here on the 4th of July. Just this morning, I got up and went to the gym even though I could’ve slept in because it’s a holiday. It was a struggle. It was a fight, but I know I need to move my body to be healthy. Afterwards, I grabbed a bite to eat with a friend Who helps me be accountable for a healthy lifestyle. We do that for each other thank God for friends, right?! But I am mentally and emotionally exhausted just completely burned out from everything yet nothing. It sounds so crazy because I cannot exactly pinpoint it. There’s a myriad of things, but none of them elevate to the point of catastrophe absolutely nothing but yet here I am so thanks for this article. It was very encouraging and I appreciate eight it very much. I typically don’t read them, but I’m glad I did today. God bless you, sister. Have a wonderful day .

  6. “Sometimes what God wants to give us really requires the least amount of effort but we make it harder on ourselves by fighting for everything.” Great statement. Thanks for sharing. All the best to you on your freedom journey.

  7. This article spoke to me. I’m in a season where God put me on notice as “Summer Break”. From being terminated/layoff from my job, finances cut in half to really sitting with God to understand where He is directing me in this season. I need to find the next ladder in this trenches so I can climb out and really trust God and be patient in the rest season.

  8. I loved this article. I agree that we, as Blacks or if we identify as African Americans, still have to fight each and every day. And sometimes, you best believe I am tired of fighting for everything. I am so tired of fighting, so what I do is sometimes I have to put it on the altar. I have to release it to that higher power that I know can take care of all things, which means my stuff. I love relying on God and knowing when to be discerning and listen to that still, small voice that provides me with that added clarity. I am grateful for God in my life. Blessings, Gerrie

  9. Thank you, my sister, for authentically sharing your journey and your struggles. I’m in a long season of waiting and am learning to leave it on the alter. I have done everything I know to do, now it’s God’s turn. I’m learning to trust God and His perfect timing. During this time, I’ve discovered that the lesson is in how I wait because I know God will bring it to pass in His perfect timing. Be blessed, my sister!

  10. Thank you so much for this awe-inspiring message. It resonates deep within the sanctified soul. Thank you for the space to breathe through the human aspect and the clear redirection to understand this is a spiritual experience and that the battle is not ours. This was validation and confirmation and I thank God for giving you the message to impart to us, as you can see, it is much needed.
