The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 55: TAKE YOUR PERSONAL POWER BACK
Why is it that we feel the need to give an explanation for our decisions or behaviors. My spiritual mom would tell us “You don't need to ask me permission, your an adult”. That is a liberating concept, however sometimes I feel myself running back to the cage of worrying about what people think, so I justify my actions when they ask.
Recently I had a person makes a rude comment inquiring why I’m posting daily pictures of myself engaging in daily adventures. My first response was to explain to them that God instructed to me and to invite them into the conversation that the Lord and I had regarding the matter.
But before I could respond, God instructed me to not give my personal power away with a response trying to appease their disapproval of my actions. Instead I was led to say...Because I can.
On this journey of singleness, marriage and intimacy with God, others are not going to understand your process. Your family might pressure you to marry before this invisible clock runs out. Or you and your spouse may be instructed to move to a new city, with the disapproval of your family. Or the popular...it doesn't take all of that, when you are seeking to get closer to God.
The truth of the matter is your singleness, marriage and intimacy with God will not be fulfilling if you don't have your personal power.
Until tomorrow, remember you grown! If God said do it, that settles it!
With Beautiful Love
