"don’t empty yourself into those unwilling to pour into you. You deserve more. "You are worthy of reciprocity"-Alex Elle
This year was all about what your hands can do. God's hands are greater and they will carry you through. Use your hands for good not to harm. Use one hand to pour into you, the other to pour into someone else and both to pour into yourself when no one else will!
2015, l let you go!!!! Let go of people or things that did not pour into me!! 2016 will be a year of worth. When God takes something away, He shall replace and multiply many times over. Anything my hands touch shall not cause harm but manifest in protection and words echoed from my lips shall not inflict pain but manifest in love. As a blessed trait, naturally, I poured into others this year; my eyes and heart could not see that the hope, love, consistency, respect, and commitment etc., I was pouring, was unwarranted and thus many did not pour into me. I have had to work for everything I have and when God places a test in front of me I leap on it with great passion and dedication as if their test was for me; fighting for them and hoping for them when they lacked the fight and hope for themselves. I kept pushing and believing until He said "my child no more". I believe in spirit that I am measured by how much hope, love, commitment, consistency and adoration I give unto anything I touch or that crosses my path. I give the same standard across the board for myself and others and it's in that passion that can at times cause great pain. I am passionate about those I care for and things I desire. Lord, I am relinquishing this spiritual warfare that attempts to manifest in man but has no home in my heart. This war shall not manifest in my life as this war is not for me, it is the Lord. When God places a Ram(people or things) in the bush, you step out of the way and step out on faith and believe God will have your back. Move out of the way of your greatness and don't block your blessings; move in order to receive what God is trying to reveal for you!
As God leads me into 2016, I will continue to stay the course. I will keep this blessed trait of love, hope, commitment, consistency, patience, tolerance etc., but I will listen to Him more when he says "my child no more". Meeting people where they are and allowing them to fight their fight when extra hands on the battlefield are unwarranted. I know that I am worthy of reciprocity! I deserve more! I am worthy of respect!
"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back; you'll be evaluated by the same standard with which you evaluate others". Luke 6:38. "
