This Conversation was EVERYTHING!

Sis, impatience will limit you in every way. Today, we are encouraging one another to stop attempting to force God’s hand in the middle of our transition. The speakers and I had the opportunity to share about some of the struggles that we have endured over the years throughout the transitions that we’ve had, and it’s my hope that it helps you.

For those of y’all who have spent any time at all with me, you know that I’m obsessed with First and Second Samuel right now. Well, I have a word that I believe will encourage you because the temptation to settle is very real and it’s the relationships in our lives that remind us to hold on to God’s promises.

The enemy wanted to make him a bodyguard, but the Lord wanted to make Him a king!

During our time together, we talked about 1 Samuel 27:10-12 and 1 Samuel 28: 1-3, and we learned that it is IMPOSSIBLE to spend time in the enemy’s camp and not pick up some of his ways. The truth is that David messed up wayyyy before Bathsheba, but the Lord kept him covered, and he will do the same for us. We just have to remember not to resist the enemy’s rejection because it came from the Lord.

In This Episode

We talked about how to:

  • appreciate the “God Space,” a phrase Ty coined in her poem;
  • avoid compromise;
  • continue developing Godly character;
  • develop connections that will help you navigate transition successfully.

Enough said. Press play.

Thank you to our little live “studio” audience. Your presence blessed us tremendously!
