Faith Without Borders
Have you ever been in a place where you saw something beyond the magnitude in which you could believe apart from how God showed you?
Well, I have, and even when things were going every which way in my life but the right way God was still pressing the vision upon my heart to gather my faith, and to release it without borders. Now, this was a tough thing for me to do because I am an overthinker, and I tend to want to perfect everything at all costs… But what I noticed about this frame of mindset was it kept me from really see the full outline in the process of birthing Mend The Vow
Back in 2017 was going through one of the worst seasons of my entire life, and I did not have anything to my name but my pain, and my sorrows. I was homeless, and I had no one to turn to other than God, and you know what He wanted from me more faith to believe that He was able to bring me out of my circumstances. I did not know how that would look because everything that I was facing was eating away at my mental health, and the only thing I felt like doing was literally giving up, and hiding from the world.
But this was not an option God saw fir for me to lean into. I was on the brink of wasting my life away just to settle for a love that did not want me. I was reeling over the affair my then-husband had. He and I were coming back together after a long extended separation, and I was all up in my feeling with regret of wanting him back, and then on the other hand not wanting to release him just to prove to myself, and him that I was worth loving again.
Going through all this heartache, and wresting in this deep-seated pain God called out the name Mend The Vow in my ear.
He then proceeded to minister to my heart about mending it. Now I had no desire to mend anything other than what was in my face. But there was something that God saw in the long haul that I did not, and it was increasing my faith to push me further into a vision that I didn’t even desire to be a part of. As God continued to speak to my heart I slowly begin to open up and listen, and although it took sometimes for me to surrender, and choose to have faith that went beyond my mind, and beyond what I saw in front of me I had to release the pain in order to meet the purpose that God introduced to my life.
Today I am standing in the promise of what God told me almost 4 years ago, and although I still have to ride on the waves of faith without limiting my view I am thankful for everything that I had to go through in order for the full process of that pain to be purified for the Glory of God.
Have you ever been in a faith drought where you were literally serving on prayer alone?
