Luke 1:37

Winding down for the evening as thoughts of tomorrow keep pressing me. I get this knot in my stomach when stuff is just so off.

I want everything to be in place.

I want joy.

I want peace.

I want things to work out and not have to be so out of reach for me.

I can’t have one thing run good and let it stay that way without any other friction surfacing at the same time.

Today I got my first seed for “Rise Above Adversity!” My second book release. I waited all day for this book to come in yesterday from Amazon—finally to see it live! So I ordered this special copy for myself intended to keep it.

When the book arrives last night and I examine it, the book is smaller than Rebuilt. I said, “Wow, it’s beautiful but I can’t sell this for $20!!!” And my husband said “Don’t worry —yes you can. It is not about the size of the book but the content that is in it.” So I asked our administrator too (lol) and he said “It’s fine, people will buy it but if you feel like to change it then whatever.”

I am walking around with the book and when we got to a second church to preach as a guest in New Jersey, a man begged me for MY BOOK!!! I’m like, “NO! This is my copy.” He said “I am not leaving without that book I need it!” I said “Okay fine …” I hand him the book and he gave me folded money. He was super happy. I just threw it in my bag. A few minutes later I look and I am like this is a $20 bill but I come to see it is $50!!!!! The Spirit told me, “Don’t put a price on that book! It is a seed!” 😱😱 Glory to Jesus 🙏🏽🙌🏽

A seed! Both things happen to the seed…. it gets buried in the ground and also planted. The burying part is the rough part. Because you see nothing. Even the seed is covered. It’s dark, dirty and deep within so no one can see. You would think that this is OVER FOR THE SEED!

Nope! It is just being planted when it gets buried that deep. We always go through both simultaneously. The bad and the good. Except the good is really going to be amazing. For just when things look impossible….. they are possible. For it is only for a moment and a temporary time that the seed is buried unseen!

The deeper it is buried and with the right soil (our care of the Word) it is going to sprout to be such a harvest! It is possible. God says, IMPOSSIBLE means that IM POSSIBLE!!!

Huge note to self….

I am just writing to myself here once again.

May every doubt be canceled! I must believe–nothing is impossible for my God.

Let go of the doubt Chris, when it tries to bury you fast. It’s going to be a harvest! Have faith!

This seed is my harvest.
