My Greatest Inspiration

My Greatest Inspiration

 Recently, I had dinner with women of various educational and socio-economic backgrounds. We discussed religion, politics, society, education, love, relationships, and our roles as women in these arenas. One unanimous voice resounded…this world is dying fast, and change is needed NOW! We listened and gleaned intently, as elders shared their views and the younger women digested their pride. As the younger women expressed their hearts, the elders embraced their passion. It was

me, just as we all come from the womb, we were actually on the same page regarding our world today. 

 Many of us were heartbroken over the many senseless tragedies of young males being slaughtered, young women accepting degradation as their untimely fate, and our babies being raised in an environment conducive to disease, strife, anger, frustration, hopelessness, and death. We cried for each other, prayed for each other, and created a bond that will prove to withstand against the competitive mindset most women have towards each other. We were inspired to be better, because we are learning as a group, how to do better by each other. It wasn’t a meeting about who makes more money, who drives the nicer car, or has the better house.

 It was about learning how to coexist in a world where we’re called to step up and nurture (love) this world back into godly fruitfulness. We realized we were given the authority with Adam and Eve, but have failed to make the impact God intended. Unfortunately, because of our lax demeanor, we must now deprogram ourselves by unplugging from reality television and worldly media, so we can reprogram our spirits to hear the voice of the Lord and what He has to say.

The beginning phases of this newfound freedom and unity, is understanding our purpose…as a unit. When we hear the call to mentor the younger (female) generation, what are we showing them? What are we telling them? Is it based on reality or reality shows (which aren’t real)? Are we searching the Bible and seeking the heart of the Father in order to accurately guide them into adulthood? Are we living by example? 

If they are to watch our lives, what will they learn? Can we genuinely embrace the differences we share? Do we truly understand and value that we are uniquely and wonderfully crafted masterpieces? Change is never easy nor fun. Most times, it’s challenging and can be painful emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically. 

It’s a birthing process that must be executed with precision and in godly timing…well the time to PUSH is NOW! We are breaching a new generation where women will step into the positions of intercessors, nurturers, leaders, and instructors. We are to teach and reach others using godly wisdom and love. In order to do these things, we must first come to the realization of who we are and what each woman means to the next.

I’m truly inspired to be embarking on a new adventure in my life. One that requires me to step outside of my comfort zone and use the revelation God has given me, to train up a new generation. 

What is so great, is that God will use me as a vessel for His plan to manifest in the earth. I truly believe all women have been called to such a purpose, but unfortunately, most will not adhere. Our purpose is more than our minds can comprehend, but with God, all things are possible!
