Embrace This Season

Have you ever felt like you were in a place where you felt like a fish out of water? I know what that feels like, its the place of discomfort, it's unfamiliar, it can really be a bummer!

What I know for sure is that in this season you will have to come to terms that if I want to experience something new, well I am going to have to be open!


As women being open can be hard as it requires you to be vulnerable! Putting it all out there is easier said than done, but it is necessary! 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 msg.

Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first, I didn’t think of it as a gift and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me,

My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.


Once I heard that I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! This allows me to embrace and to share how I made it, and how it made me stronger, wiser, and most of all effective. It was not until I went through a season of uncertainty that I became certain that I have to be open, and this requires me to embrace what is within me to attain what is before me.


Transparent moment, I have not always thought this way! I wanted the thorn out of my side and I learned how to mask the pain really well. It was in the broken places of where I was that God did His best work! He showed me how to embrace the gift of help! To give help you first have to learn how to receive help! This is the year that I am open to all that God desires for me and I am embracing the good and the bad, as all of it will work out for my good! If you are struggling and trying to mask the fact that you need some help; girl let go and let God it will be the best thing you will ever do!

How are you going to embrace the unknown of this year?


This is an amazing capture of my daughter and me! We have decided to move into this new decade embracing and seizing every single moment! She reminded me that it is the sum of seconds that make up moments and if you fail to embrace that second you will miss every moment that counts!
