Fun Fact about me, Sarah Jakes Roberts is definitely my best friend in my head. I truly adore her and her testimony is super inspiring!
So when she announced she was coming to Atlanta for her ‘Night in the Wild’ tour I KNEW I had to be in the building. Even on a Thursday night knowing she was going to have me laid out and I would have to get up and go to work the next day. But I knew it would be worth it! I knew that I had to be in that building because God was going to show up and show out. And He did just that!
So here is what I learned from my Night in the Wild with my bestie Sarah:
1.The work I’m doing now is bigger than me. The work I’m putting in now is for my future generations. I may not see the fruits of my labor but I have put the ball in motion for my future generations to eat the fruits.
2.Surrender. Just surrender. There is so much power in just surrendering everything to God. When we lay it all at his feet He can fill us up. Surrendering isn’t always easy, but it is always worth it!
3.I am soil! The seeds God gives me can flourish because I am soil. Sometimes we don’t understand the power God has given us. We have the power to cultivate a seed into a tree because God created us to be soil. He created us to be a vessel so His will can be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. I could literally stay on this word forever.
4.Pour into others. Sarah has a major testimony. She could have easily stayed to herself and not taken what she has learned in life to pour into so many women. I witnessed so many women’s lives changed because of her obedience and sharing her story, including my own. As we are filled up by God we should be pouring into others around us. We all have something to share. God didn’t let you go through that situation to stay quiet once you got to the other side! He wants you to use it for His glory.
5.And lastly I was created to thrive! I literally don’t have to write anything else after that. Just know we are created to thrive not just survive.
My Night in the Wild was one that changed the trajectory of my life. My mindset was changed, I surrendered every thing that was holding me back from fully embracing the call on my life and walking boldly in my purpose.
If my sis comes to your town I promise you don’t want to miss this encounter with God!
