A little update since I have just completed my Junior year of college. #HAILLLLLWILDCATS
So upon completion of my junior year I was invited to church by one of my professors to attend service and work a health fair event this past Sunday. And boyyyy listen, when I tell you that message was just for me, like God said this is for you wrapped up with a bow and presented to me right on time?? God puts certain people in your life to build you up when you’re broken and it’s up to you to accept the help. More often than not we are so consumed in the taboos of the world we live in by not saying how we truly feel. For example, a simple “how are you” we are just programmed to promptly answer “well” even if our MIND is telling us “not well, please pray for me”. Sunday, the pastor said the devil doesn’t want to break you immediately, he works on your MIND piece by piece until you don’t know what hit you, until you think that there is no other place to turn. He used this little analogy with a frog that goes a little something like this:
(BARE WITH ME YALL, cause I didn’t plan on writing all of this)
Analogy: He said if you take a frog and put it in some hot boiling water on the stove it’ll jump right out as soon as it hits the water, right? But if you take the frog and put it in some cool warm water it’s going to relax, but then gradually raise the fire on that stove and the water warms up more and more, but the frog is comfortable because its adjusting to the temperature gradually. Sooner than later that pot of water with the frog in it is boiling and he’s on someone’s plate as frog legs! The frog didn’t even know what hit him because he was too busy being comfortable not paying attention to the signs. The devil works the same way by working on you piece by piece until you’re so consumed you don’t know what hit you and you feel you have no place to turn. But guess what? You do, and He’s just a prayer away. “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanks–giving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6–7).
I just would like to say, no matter where you go in life take care of yourself, by that I mean your mind. The mind is a powerful yet delicate tool that we have and we must take care of it and keep it fixated on the Lord. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. (Isaiah 26:3)
