“You are a prototype. Your journey is different. Your journey is different!”
It was October 23rd 2018, I was sitting Indian style on the floor, crying uncontrollably due to the presence of God invading the place at our 6 for 2. (6 for 2 is our prayer time at church where we meet and seek the Father at 6 am.) Pastor Travis came over and spoke those words over me. So appropriate for the season I was in.
I remember during that season of my life ya girl was in a “heavy comparison” phase. I was comparing my journey to others constantly. I’m going to be completely honest. I didn’t understand why people were getting things that I desired. Why was it taking me so long to get to my ideal situation? Why am I not married yet? Why does it seem that they have it so easy? Why does my journey have to take so long? All of these questions taunted me frequently. So I took all these questions to the Father that morning and left with those words which will forever be inscribed in my heart.
I left that morning, no longer comparing myself to other people and their journey. It’s become an affirmation for me. My journey is different. I am the PROTOTYPE!
Be encouraged! Your journey is different and you are a prototype! 💜
