I feel my breakthrough coming
I believe it's almost here
- Demetrius West
Get ready for a breakthrough! I believe God will send it down if you believe and if you make your heart ready. Oh my goodness... So let me tell you I recently added this song to my workout lineup and I don't know what I was thinking. Actually I could not have been thinking because this right here is dangerous. I'm glad I don't embarrass easily. And I'm further glad that I give it up to God anytime, anywhere, anyhow! When I tell you I'm all in the hood having some serious church with my headphones on I mean what I say. I'm talking about singing, shouting, the whole shebang. I also iust learned the correct way to spell shebang, LOL. So we truly do learn something new every day.
Let me rewind just a moment. Demetrius West featured Karen Hoskins in Open The Floodgates and something really washed over me. When he says he can feel an increase coming I can actually feel it. And our sister Karen is doing what my friend Marcus calls some "good hollering" in this here song, my goodness! My spirit levels up every time I hear it. I'm actually crafting this post for you my dear readers pretty late at night and I have to refrain from playing the song right now otherwise I'm going to wake up everything in the house. A mighty move of God will commence right here with me in this house bonnet and housedress. I won't lie I'm tempted... I'm tempted to risk it all and go in right now! But I digress.
Y'all, God has been so good to me. I am a witness that when praises go up blessings come down. And I have a real love and respect for these beautiful vessels that write, produce, and perform these songs that will usher us into a moment of praise. It has become such a vital part of my life. It is far beyond a good time on Sunday mornings. It's so much more than good stuff to drive to or clean the house to. It drastically more. It's like a holy forklift that hoists me up to a place where I need to be. Hallelujah!
A few years ago I was house bound and would whisper prayers and songs of praise. I was grateful that God had not forgotten me. And still I questioned why He kept me around. I was taking a bunch of medication and I felt useless even though my heart was unshakably tied to the gospel. I could not do away with my worship. I couldn't dream of what that might be doing for me. But what I understand more and more each day is that my Father in Heaven sees further and knows better than me. If I had given up in 2018 and God followed my lead instead of me following His, souls and vision would be lost today.
Not only would books not be published but families would be broken, women wouldn't be healed, lives would have spiraled out of control. Oh my goodness He knew it all along. This is why I praise. Not only for my healing and growth but for the impact He's allowed me to have. For a greater good and for His glory. That's a floodgate that was opened in my life. And I promise you I'm ready for more. I'm ready to swim in these miracles and blessings like never before. I'm excited. I'm ready. I want it for me and I want it for you too. Let's shout to God, "Send it down!"
