I think back to a time I gave other people authority over my happiness. When you are in a relationship you often do everything in your power to make the other person happy, even if it causes you pain. Years ago, I was being called out of my life of partying, drinking, smoking weed etc. But the guy I was dating hadn’t been.
Before I knew it, I was dressed up sitting in a car on the way to a club. Feeling a pit of despair in my stomach, I stared out the window and just told myself "it’ll only be a few hours".
As we got closer to the club, we got a flat tire and by our surprise, we had no spare. Pretty much the rest of our night ended in waiting on a tow truck. We never made it to the club.
Somehow in that moment I knew my life was not my own. I knew God had called me to something greater, and that God was willing to cancel the party to keep me on the track He had for me.
I want to encourage you to take your authority back from other people! To stand on your own truth and know your personal boundaries that God has placed on your heart.
Next, I want to tell you to be okay with God disrupting your life. God will cancel things, cut-off things, and separate things from your life all for the betterment of your life in Him. As God reveals Himself more and more in your life, you will begin to know that certain ways of life are not acceptable for you.
That's where I was in that car on the way to a club. I knew I had been called, I knew I would one day minister to thousands of women, but I was leading myself away from that path, and God put a roadblock in the way and led me back right.
God has great plans for all of us. Plans that will give us hope and a good future.
I want you to see that the roadblock, the crisis, was all to lead you on the path He has for you.
To this day I have never been to another club. I don’t even desire to go. Now, weekly I empower women all over the world! I am so thankful for God's Roadblocks!
"I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and give you a hope and a future."
