All facts. No chaser.
Is someone shaking the table?!
AND in me.
What we once thought was the direction turned out the be the vehicle.
The vehicle God decided to use to get us from the pit to (insert the destination) we overlooked or planted—thinking it was buried.
Nope! Just planted.
God relocated us for a season to reveal the reason.
The reason = development.
It’s the development God needed to do in us before he could place us in the environment necessary for us to INFLUENCE or CHANGE.
Cause what good is it if we allow our environment to influence us? Yikes.
DelayedOur original vision - immature.
Our current frustration is because we’ve matured… 👀
What was once graced for the detour quickly became a ground of stagnation.
Our roots are planted, but it’s hard for us to notice the new pot.
We struggle with abrupt change.
It can be difficult to pick up the ideas that once were, but it’s time.
Joseph saw the vision, but it took time, process, and hardship to mature him for clarity.

Okay, now come a little closer—
Even if I tried to paint you a picture of the last few months, the outcome would not do justice to how life’s life-ing.
Life is still handing me lessons on all types of platters.
I’ve missed key milestones, and my communication skills, like texting and calling, look like real gourmet trash.
It’s giving… gotta learn how to adjust amid transitions and pray to God for my peers, friends, and family to extend me some grace as I scrape my knee a couple of times.
JUST KNOW THIS—I’m going to keep standing back up.

Ephesians 6:11 instructs us to put on the FULL ARMOR of God to STAND FIRM against enemy tactics. My knee hurts, but I will keep standing even if my helmet of salvation is slightly crooked. *Continue to sip your tea and pray for me*
As things are shaking, are you still standing?
💡What if—hear me out—what if it’s not life life-ing, but God course correcting us? Mmm, that’s some good food for thought. #keepgoing
