#NewBeginnings...

Greetings!
BlogFam,

Today is a day of new beginnings.

Honestly, I do not know where that came from.  I just woke up and those words were in my Spirit.

Today is a day of new beginnings.  It is not the first of the month and it is not the first day of the week.  Actually, it is the fourth of the month and it is Thursday.

Today is a day of new beginnings.  I am not quite sure what that means yet; however, as I reflect on the happenings in my own life over the last month especially the last few weeks, the last few days for that matter, well, I cannot help but to embrace this stirring in my own Spirit.

Today is a day of new beginnings and I am OPEN to whatever this day and this new beginning holds for me.


Perhaps, I am feeling this way because my birthday is in a few days.  August 10th to be exact.  I am always very reflective around this time of the year.  What have I done with the last year of my life?  How have I grown?  What have I let go?  Where am I going next?  These are very significant questions that must be asked regularly along life’s journey.  And believe me, I do ask myself these questions and so many more.  I admit that sometimes I am overjoyed with the answers and sometimes, I am not.  If I had to answer them today, I would say that my response would be one of joy and one of liberation.  Yes, liberation.  It really is good to be me right now and I attribute that to the confidence I have that Christ has, within this last week, reaffirmed my call and my own place in the Kingdom of God.  I am excited about how the Lord will continue to use me to be a blessing to others and I am excited about the growth that has taken place in my life simply because of the courage to tell my story.


Last Sunday, I shared my testimony.  I publicly shared my struggle to accept my call to preach when I had been taught for so long that “girls don’t preach.” [Freedom Talk Video - https://www.facebook.com/discoverfreedomfellowship/?fref=ts] And then last night, the Lord created a space for me to preach a sermon again affirming the call for women to shepherd, to pastor others even as the Good Shepherd shepherds and pastors us all.  Both of these opportunities to express my heart at this juncture on my journey have propelled my level of confidence [not that I needed it LOL] in the FREEDOM I have to let my light so SHINE before men and women that they may see my good works, or hear my testimony, and they will give God glory! [Matthew 14:22-33; Genesis 29:9]


So, maybe that is it.  Maybe this “today is a day of new beginnings” is a new state of being in the world, a higher level of consciousness that pushes me to raise my perspective and my own level of expectation for the not yet, but is soon coming.


Today is a new day, my friends.

Today is a day of new beginnings and I am again on the starting line.

On my mark.  Get Set.  GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
Delesslyn
