HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU: What I’ve Learned Thus Far – Part I

Do you remember MTV’s UNPLUGGED? Do remember how the top artists wanted to perform for UNPLUGGED? It was a proving ground. Usually it was a stripped down version. There was live instrumentation. Sometimes it was little to nothing; even acapella. It was make it or break it for the artist. Either it was their demise or a musical victory. One of my favorites was Maxwell. I believe he performed A WOMAN’S WORTH on UNPLUGGED; definitely one of my favorites. I make this analogy to say where I am.

In Psalm 35 it talks about being under attack and wondering if GOD has forgotten or forsaken you. HE has done neither. At the end of the Scripture it says that when I’m delivered I will go before my enemies and declare that it was no one but GOD who delivered me. That’s where I am; stripped down, and naked before HIM.

Right now I can’t feel sorry for myself because so many of my friends and family have their own issues they’re going through. Too many to mention or name. We all go through difficulties, but rarely are we alone in our trials. Those closest to me know that when I have difficulties it’s not something I readily share. I go into my secret place and talk with my GOD. This is a solo performance. When I finish I’m expecting a standing ovation. I will declare that it was nobody but GOD that brought me through.

Every now and then GOD has to put you in a place where you have no choice, but to depend on HIM. “The prayers of the righteous availeth much.” But there’s nothing like being able to petition GOD for you. In my status a while back I wrote that I was in a place; a space whereby neither Momma nor my Daddy could help me in my predicament; only GOD HIMSELF could save me. I’m still in that same space and it’s not a bad place to be. This is where miracles happen.

Right now I have so many friends and family going through issues and problems; everything from financial, to legal, to even physical. I am praying, but I ask you to get UNPLUGGED. Go before GOD completely stripped. You don’t need a special prayer cloth; a certain minister to pray, but you just need GOD! I know you’ve been quiet about your situation, but when you get delivered I want you to declare before all the world that is was GOD. That’s what I’m going to do.
