Hope Deferred Makes The Heart Sick

Do you feel totally exhausted, extremely agitated and frustrated to the point of total mental, physical and spiritual failure?

Do you feel totally exhausted, extremely agitated and frustrated to the point of total mental, physical and spiritual failure?

Does it feel so much different than you have ever experienced?

Are you facing another trip around the mountain in the desert?

Are the frustrations in your ministry, job, home, family or any other life situation beyond anything you have ever felt?

There is a reason!

God in his mercy is allowing such pressure to bring us to the breaking point.  He is very serious about his love and deep concern and purpose for us!

He will not allow you to press through into the next stage until His work in us has been completed in this one.

The pressure has frustrated you for a very long time, not realizing the source has kept you chained to things you do not comprehend.

These things are being made manifest and suddenly you are getting glimpses of things you thought were dealt long ago.

Things that have kept you stuck to past failures and loss.  You haven’t understood the deep grief, sorrow and mourning of soul.

However, the pressure is bringing deep rooted issues to the surface.  You have not understood what to do as you are desperate and feel like you are going down, drowning to the point of death, grasping at anything or anyone that you feel can help you.

This great disappointment has surfaced in areas that have cost you family, friends and opportunities.

As you see the glimpses surfacing, it brings great mental pain and anguish like you felt so long ago when the events initially happened.

What’s worse is you are not able to rectify the situations of those who were deeply hurt and are no longer there.

You have been haunted by deeply embedded mistakes.  What had stressed you manifested physically and became stress to others.

Realizing the facts, caused deep remorse.  It caused you to back away because you do not want to damage others.

We become jaded to life and to those who truly want to help us because of preexisting conditions.

You have carried a deep seated root in your heart unrealized.  You knew something was wrong but never fully comprehended till now.

To even think of trusting and surrendering to another causes great shaking.

Due to the past wounds, you fear those who are in authority and it is scaring you to look at what you think God is saying to you.

You think these will will be like all the other’s.  Yet in all the fear and confusion, deep down you really want to begin again, for your destiny cries deeply within!

Even in such vexation of heart and mind, the vestiges of pride surface.  You don’t want to admit you need help.

Humility and obedience open the door; faith drives it all fear away, for faith worketh by love.  Reach out for help, he is standing at the very door.

Your heart has carried great disappointment, sadness and disillusionment, feeling like you have been disqualified due to loss of time and hope.

He is here to establish and heal you beloved; trust Him today.

“Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life,”   Proverbs 13:12 KJV.

It is God’s will and desire to deliver and heal you today.  In the depths of your very soul make a move towards what you believe He is saying.

Trust Him and stop worrying about what people think about you.  Don’t be afraid to reach out to whom God shows you.

God has not stripped you of your rank, He wants us stripped of every weight that so easily besets us.

He may have removed your authority of that rank for a season, but He never removes His gift.  It is his love that desires you to be free.  He has come to set the captive free.

If you continue to think of the past about people and what you were, you will chase the wind and reap the whirlwind.  Let go and let God!

Like the caterpillar shrouds itself in a cocoon in seemingly death of what it was, the process must be complete before newness can come.

Take a step of faith, step out of the boat and test the waters.  Show God and everyone that you are going for the motherload!  You are headed for destiny or bust!

Throw fear aside and prepare to enter into who you really are!  You have come to a place of exhausting all possibilities.  There are no more options for expansion and you are no longer that same person nor are the others the same.

Let go and enter into who you really are.  You cannot be happy being someone you’re not.

Life is life and each of us choose how to live it.  We must choose how to find our niche in life no matter how many mistake and how old we are.

Age has nothing to do with it, it is obedience.

We have God given gifts to pursue in our lives as we pursue HIM.  New things requires a new beginning of a new beginning.

Some giftings are ministry some are secular, but regardless, the gifts and callings of God are without repentance.

As we learn these principles to pursue his plan, we find out with excitement, that our whole life can be reinvented!

Even like the emergence of the butterfly from a shrouded tomb.  Even if we did one thing all our lives, God has another work for you!

Never forget HE has the final say and we are to set our face as flint to seek Him always, for He is our first gift, our first ministry and our first Love.

Let Him love you today!


In HIS Grace and Mercy,
