The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 90: ACKNOWLEDGE
Today I had a great conversation with a dear friend of mine, which lead to a discussion regarding my recent 40 day fast I was on the end of the year. Yes I didn't eat a thing for 40 days and 40 nights. My daily delights were water, cranberry juice and sometimes veggie broth.
To be honest I was terrified when I started. The longest fasts I had completed prior with no food or liquids were 7 day fasts. In fact the 7 day fast became so easy for me that it didn't even feel like I was fasting. I believe that's why God shocked me when I was reading the gospel of Mathew 4, He said come away with me. I said where..thinking it was a location. He said on a forty day fast. He said with no food.
With fear and reservations, that was the best yes I ever committed to in my Christian walk. What I told my friend was one of the biggest takeaways from the experience was acknowledging that "I am The Daughter of The King". I have heard this, I had even preached it. But now I live it, because I acknowledge it in every aspect of my life. The fast was just a tool used to embedded it in my soul forever that I am The Daughter Of The King and I know it!
Today’s lesson: Proverbs 3:6 “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy path.
Make no mistake of knowing on this journey of preparation to singleness, marriage and intimacy with God to acknowledge God. The way you acknowledge Him is to acknowledge you and what you mean to Him, and who you are to Him. You are His beloved, His chosen one, His beautiful child. Acknowledge it, own it and live it. It will direct your path.
How does it direct your path?
You know your worth so you act accordingly
It sets you apart
You will not tolerate mess
People who are not for your good you will easily walk away from
You will never be the side chick or optional dude.
You don't ask the permission of man
It is the key to your authenticity so you make choices and decision that follow your truth no one else.
Until tomorrow acknowledge that you are who God says you are so be who God has called you to be. Period!
With Beautiful Love
