    Your road is before you
    as it always has been
    it may look overgrown
    with weeds and thorns
    where you stand at this moment
    but that's the Enemy's oldest trick

    You were born to be at this
    place at this time
    and this very hour, God is
    calling out your name
    can you hear Him in the
    stillness?

    Listen...

    You have all the tools...
    you may have jerry-rigged
    a few of them by your own
    mother-wit and honed
    your abilities through the
    hard times... but the Master
    knew what He placed in you
    when he fashioned you in
    your mother's womb

    Ohhhh, you are so many things!
    you have so many talents
    it is sometimes the most
    awesome thought how so much
    wonder and beauty...so much
    richness...so much stoutness
    of heart and capacity of mind
    is housed in one man...

    You ARE pure energy...

    The Plan is still in affect
    the path looms long and bumpy
    with each step you take
    ...and there are hidden pits and
    holes that may cause you to stumble
    and doubt your purpose

    but with each step forward,
    the rough places
    are made smooth...that's the
    way faith works

    Step by step...another miracle... confirmation

    renewed strength to carry on

    Listen to the Spirit...
    He is speaking to you now
    Gird up your loins
    and put on the whole armor
    of Christ

    the Enemy doesn't want you
    to answer the call of your Destiny
    he hates you and your mission
    and he'll use a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g
    and a-n-y-o-n-e to block you
    and rob you of your Birthright
    *even people who love you*

    You are Royalty
    You must remember
    where your Help comes from

    And you have to work while it is yet day
    because the night is coming
    when no man can work

    I am praying that you

    Rise up, my Beloved,
    thank God for another day,
    place one foot in front of the other

    and move!
