No Longer Bridging

What’s up BRIGGade! I hope all is well!

Its been almost 2 months since i’ve checked in and you know, it’s the same ol same ol… Work, Grad School, chasing these kids and etc…

Last year, or maybe the year before last when I got back into these blogging streets… I was at a point in life where I was trying to bridge my life… trying to master every part of my life… Following Jesus, motherhood, my love life and all of the things in between.

Over the past few years, I’ve been in search of a scripture…. in search of something that defines me… something that speaks to my spirit….and I know what you’re thinking…. with all the scriptures in the Bible it took me two years to find “THE ONE” lol…

I needed something that I felt God was saying to me… not something just to say it because people love quoting scripture…

Today I found two… Yes, two… During service today my Pastor was preaching and he mentioned how we weren’t called to be like other people… that we are peculiar…

1 Peter 2:9 

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into the marvelous light” -KJV

In the exact moment that my Pastor made his statement and referenced this scripture, it was if God himself paused everything that was going on at that very moment to give me this revelation…

It was a moment of clarity… when people notice that I’m not like other people they’re right…. And i have to walk in that….BOLDLY.

The second scripture my Pastor referenced was:

Matthew 5:14

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” -AMPC

Mind blown….

I mean how had I literally read that scripture a thousand times and not realized what God was saying to me here?… How did I not notice in this very scripture that God has been trying to tell me alllllll this time about MY LIGHT… as I continued to rehearse this scripture I had to take it a step further…

Matthew 5:15

“Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.”-AMPC

That’s like the icing on the cake…. all this time God had been trying to tell me that my light is supposed to shine… not just for me but for others as well….that yes i am unique but I am chosen… called from the darkness of my past into the light (1Peter 2:9)…. My light is to shine for everyone and no matter what it can’t be hidden (Matthew 5:14-16). I could really take this a step further with the next verse but imma let yall live tonight.

Today…. I found my Peculiar Light…..God has and will continue to handle the Bridging of my life…. I will continue to listen for him and walk in my light…

Until next time.
