We, myself included always talking about “keeping something tight.” Whether it be our body, keep it right, keep it tight girl; our hair, Girl, allow me to gather these edges; or other ahem “things” tight lol. But, I rarely hear about people wanting to keep their faith tight or just actively working on it like we do our bodies. It’s like we through caution to the wind and the storm pop up and we like WTF? We threw caution to the wind, working these fine bodies out, but neglecting our faith.
Faith is that thing that will sustain you when your physical body is sick. Faith is what will keep you from jumping off a bridge because the pressures of the world is so much. Faith is what holds us at night when things are tough. And guess what? Things do get tough. There will come times in our life when we have to pick ourselves up. These are the times that we won’t have anyone else to turn to and that’s ok. For that is the time where we learn of our strength and how powerful we are. We most importantly learn how powerful God is. He can deliver us, but God is funny acting sometimes lol. He wants for us to see that in Him is who we should rely on. Not man, family, friends, jobs, money in the bank, etc. There is a storm for different lessons and some you can’t pay your way out of. The only way out is through. Sometimes we must be isolated. We come out stronger, wiser, more sensitive to ourselves and the needs of others. However, it is in this time that is most difficult. Life looked so promising a month ago, damn what happened? But let me do like the Pastors say: I got a Word for you! Keep the Faith! Don’t Waver. It is going to be ok. Things will be better on the other end then it was before. You are built for it. The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy, BUT my God! The enemy sees whats in our future and wants to discourage us from walking in our purpose to get our promise, but don’t let him win. We are so close to the promise. Keep the faith!
