What’s a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy Anyway? From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks for joining me for a little break. I was about to share what and who that big boulder our Father placed in the midst of my journey. Hurry! Grab your coffee and come on in.

So just when I thought I’d reached my limit and was learning how to juggle it all, with His help, of course, He decides to work in His plan of bringing our little almost-two-year-old to live with us and his daddy! Oh, did I ever sputter and spit my fit in the two days we had to get ready for him, as if we ever could be really ready for him! LOL!

Well, I spent those two days silently screaming out to God, “Really? You can’t be serious! I have too much on my plate now! Come on; please don’t make me do this!” And this one is really humiliating, “I have this ministry to take care of; I don’t have time for this.” I even went so far as to say, “Just let me be a court reporter; at least I know what I’m doing in that profession!” Hurry, someone get the baba cuz I’m having a fit and falling in it! 🙂 🙁 🙂

I’m so embarrassed to even admit that I said something so delusional because it’s NOT my ministry, and I don’t take care of it! Please. It’s His. “And guess what, little Ms. Evinda, your home is your first ministry and now your step-son and grandson are a part of your ministry!”

I can almost giggle at the picture I must have made to our Heavenly Father, but not quite. I still have some Godly sorrow in me for my attitude. Some of the words I kept telling myself are: “I’m too busy; I’m so overwhelmed; It’s just too hard, too much.” Seriously, I had no idea how I was going to handle another responsibility!

In the midst of my verbal fit, the Lord began ministering to me in a mighty way, calmly, quietly and firmly, letting me know that this was HIS will and that because He brought me to it, I would get through it. He stopped me before my words turned into another self-fulfilling prophecy.

He has shown me that I need to be ever more dependent upon Him, looking to Him in planning the day’s to-dos. Some days are easier than others, but the crazy thing is I’m actually accomplishing more each day than before little Bryden came to live with us! 🙂 That’s God’s sovereignty for sure. 🙂

Join me Thursday for the conclusion to this enlightening little series as I share a positive one that happened just last week at work. Tomorrow, Tuesday will be a little love story! 🙂
