When the lights go out…

It’s nighttime, the kids are in bed; Hubby’s asleep but will probably say he was resting his eyes once he wakes up. You’re all alone, just you and Jesus.

Who are you now?

I ask myself this periodically, to see if I’m still aware of me. Lately, I recognized that I’ve simply been reacting to the world around me for some time. Instead of asking Holy Spirit what He wants me to do with my days, I’ve been fumbling around and taking him for the ride. He’s been a passenger in the relationship He should’ve been piloting.

I ask myself again, in this moment; who are you Keisha?

Are you living up to your life’s mission of changing the world one heart at a time or have you been changed by your circumstances? Have you been a thermostat or a thermometer?

If I’m being honest, I forgot to be who I am. It’s an easy thing to do when the busyness of life sets in and you’re caught up being who they need. It may not be a husband and kids for you, it may be your boss at work, ministry life or even your parents. But… whatever you’re busy doing, make time to be you.

Fulfilling your reason for being has to be your utmost priority. No amount of accomplishment outside of God’s divine purpose will suffice.

When the lights go out, who are you?

Goodnight.

Fallen crown… 👑 

Many beautiful love stories and fables begin with “once upon a time” and then there’s some climax and triumph of love that leads to the inevitable and oh so misleading “happily ever after”. 

Forget romance, forget the knight in shining armor. Jesus already saved you, you don’t need a husband or boyfriend for that!

This is the story of the fallen crown: 

One day, a princess was born. The circumstances surrounding her birth are irrelevant. She grew up, good things happened and bad things happened. They changed her so much that she forgot she was a princess. She lost her crown, and with it, the memory of who she truly was. 

The end. 

But it doesn’t have to be. 

The king of kings has written a 66 book decree that establishes you as royalty.

 Your inheritance is everlasting residence in the kingdom of heaven.

 You have been redeemed and a declaration of your rightful position has been declared among the nations by the voice of the prophets. 

Your fallen crown has been retrieved and awaits you in the land flowing with milk and honey. 

He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning!

“The LORD will hold you in his hand for all to see— a splendid crown in the hand of God.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭62:3‬ 

You are a queen, nothing can or has disqualified you. Your crown just fell, ask  God to open your eyes – you’ll see He’s been holding it this whole time!
