“The invalid answered, Sir, I have nobody when the water is moving to put me into the pool; but while I am trying to come [into it] myself, somebody else steps down ahead of me.”John 5:7 AMPC
I’ve been debating about posting this, but felt the time was right right now. You probably thought you were going to get pics of me by the pool, huh? I wish, that would be so awesome right now (drifts off to the beach).
Well, for a long time I always felt like the invalid by the pool of Bethesda. Always felt like I needed the help of others to help get me to my destination. Literally, I grew complacent just waiting. You may have never felt this way, and I hesitated posting this thinking about the opinions of others. But we’ve all been in a place at one time in our lives where we felt we needed someone or something.
Growing up I never had a mentor, or that person to push me to be become a better me. Everything I’ve experienced has been through trial and error, and felt like it would never get better. When I would start the process, it would get hard and I’d quit. To some extent I felt like a sad sob story, but I knew it had to get better. Thank God for my husband, he pushes me and sees the best in me. I’ve debated quitting blogging because of this, but I’m not going to let it defeat me. In my mind I knew what needed to be done, but my body kept saying you don’t want to do that. Resistance will keep you from fulfilling your God given talents and abilities.
So, what have I been doing? I’ve been working on becoming a better me. Working on not being defeated and intimidated. I’m rising to the challenge of getting the resources I need to help me and others who may feel the same. They say always be that which you didn’t have. We have a lot of people doing, but no one willing to invest in themselves or others anymore. Along, this blogging journey I have met so many inspirational women that are intentional in giving encouragement and empowerment. That’s what’s needed in this day. So that’s it, a spur of the moment type blog. Personal but needed for me. I’ll have a for real one next week 😉
Until next time
