In everything with prayer and supplication, present your request to God and the peace of God will transcend all understanding. What does this truly mean? Pray about everything, worry about nothing, live in peace and wait patiently to receive. As the saying goes, “It’s the patience for me.” Ha! Seriously, I have a few things before the Lord that has me perplexed in His response at the moment. Undoubtedly, what continues to have me grounded is God’s track record. He’s no shorter than His word.
In the meantime, what should I do? Well, what do you do when you’re awaiting the manifestation of God’s promise? Currently, I am in this state. I am serving, praying and listening. I am serving my community by connecting and praying regularly with Moms in Prayer through my daughters’ school, leading the Virtual Greeters Ministry at Brown Missionary Baptist Church, leading the Life Prep New Members Arm at BMBC, assisting within the Economic Development Committee of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, establishing groundwork and raising funds for my foundation, The Cleo T. Hudson, Jr. Memorial Foundation, sharpening my financial literacy skill set within my business as I continue to educate the community on how money works, training up my sweet daughters to become the best little ladies that they have been called to be, being as accessible to humankind as possible, just to mention a few. I am praying the Lord’s will. Lord knows I pray that these two things are His will. Hahahaha! Lastly, I am still enough to hear His voice and harken to what He says. If that isn’t enough to help me stay progressive. Unfortunately, it keeps me physically busy, but my mind is still emotionally tied to two things in particular that would make my life even more joyful. Yet, patience and emotions remain an intricate trait when it comes to progress. Otherwise, the blessing will be aborted and I’ve come too far to let that be so.
Mostly I handle my emotions through the use of affirmations and within the last month I have began working out at the gym and eating the proper meals. Additionally, I rewrite what God has told me so that in times of vulnerability and anxiousness, I am reminded why I should control my emotions and be patient. One thing I know, God is faithful. Ask yourself this question, “Can all of your worries add a single moment to your life?” In all of your thinking about your future, do not forget to live in the moment, laugh aloud, love with all of your heart. Take the risk. Live by faith. Do good to others. So much love to you all!
