SPRING FORTH NOW 2023

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,

and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good;

so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light,

and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him:

fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way,

because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. . . .

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,

nor his seed begging bread.

Psalm 37:1-7; 23-25


For the longest time in my life, I saw my life through the lens of what bad was happening to me and/or what was not happening for me that I desired, so much so, I missed enjoying life. Because I gave more credence to the negativity, the darkness of my life; real-life challenges clouded and made fuzzy the good of my life, and thus the opportunities that were visible and available, what I believe should be for my life were often missed. I was so fretting about what was not and what was bad, I could not see the enormity of my life that was good; the light and victories in my life, blinding me to the greater and available opportunities for joy and accomplishments beyond measure, the extraordinary. However, when I became confident about the fact that my life, whatever it entailed and whatever engaged me, I had been Chosen to handle it and out of it create, even redeeming from its fragments, in order to build something great that would be sustainable for the what should be for my life. It was the revelation of God; His grace, mercy, and peace toward me, in the midst of life’s challenges; an oasis in what appeared to be a desert, that enabled me to see and understand my expectation of the extraordinary for my life would not come from external sources but would spring forth from within. The more I focus on the revelation of God in my life, even in my challenges, the more I see the extraordinary within me, the Chosen of God; the more confidence and willpower to exert and overcome to live, move, and have my being in my Most Favored Status.
