At any rate, Brianna posted a video [which you’ll find below] this morning where she shared that people can’t share their dreams with everyone. Her sentiments made me pause as I reflected on my own personal life.
The largest dream that I ever had in my life was when God revealed to me that He would call on me to raise my daughter, Haelee. Not only that He told me that I would break many of the curses that had plagued my family for generations. I shared my dream with the two women in my Mom and Granny that were closest to me in hopes of gaining support. What I got instead was doubt and ridicule. That experience broke my heart more than anything that I’d ever gone through in life (yes I cried). I didn’t let it deter me from Gods promise however because He didn’t put a Spirit of defeat inside of me. I was subsequently given custody of my Haelee a short 6 months and $20,000 later. My winning custody was the happiest moment of my life short of her being born. I learned from that experience to keep Gods promises to me close to my vest.
What I and Brianna described are called Joseph moments. Have you ever had one? If so what was it?
If you haven’t had one, I promise that you will. And when you do, I pray that you take the advice that’s been shared by both Brianna and myself. Don’t let anyone break your soul. Take a read of The Unexpected Journey: Fire and Gold if you need more direct advice. You can find it by going here.
