It Is Ok To Be Human.

Today‘s blog reminds me that it’s okay to be human. I had a pretty bad day yesterday. Since I started writing my blogs, there was one other day that I had a bad experience with someone removing me from a group chart without any warning. That was the day I wrote about changing your core. So I called a big brother of mine, and I go like this, I can’t believe this person did a, b, c, and d. The sad part is he is a Pastor and once called me a daughter. I became pretty judgmental because I couldn't fathom what had happened.

He kept quiet and allowed me to vent. After he said to me, Adobea, you ought to go back and read the blogs you write over and over again. He asked me what my blog was about that morning, click, click. That was a sincere answer in a question form. I said to him, I wrote about changing your core with emphasis on removing certain people and changing something’s around; I never looked at it the other way round. I must admit that I have some incredible mentors who are helping me in this season of my life. They tell me what I ought to hear at the right time, and I am grateful.

The devil has his way. It was a test for me that day. I got tested with my message, and I couldn’t glean from it. My big brother said to me, if I am going to be doing this, I need to have tough skin to withstand what this takes. Doing ministry is not for the faint-hearted.

I wrote about letting go of the ashes yesterday. After a much gloomy day and the feeling that I couldn’t wait for this day to end, at one point, I felt my heart was ripping off my chest. My big brother picked up on my mood; I didn't even let him ask. I told him I had nasal congestion and that I was stuffy; I was so spaced out during our conversations. I wasn’t ready to talk and vent. I wanted to bottle it all in and deal with it myself

After many battles in my spirit, I watched one of Joshua Selman‘s preaching videos. I am not sure how and when I slept, but I woke up refreshed and in a much better spirit. I kept hearing in my heart that it’s okay to be human.

I want to encourage all my readers that it’s ok to be human. This life’s journey will come with ups and downs but know that we have a dependable God. Shalom.
