life beyond the well…

my emancipation

Leave a comment

when thinking about my last few weeks in NC and the almost week that i’ve spent in phoenix, i realize that a lot of that time served as my emancipation. not to say that i wasn’t already free or whatever but it was a point of letting go, breaking ties, and evolution. at the same time, it was weird because i met people and became close to people at the end of my time who are really important to me now. as i’ve said before, i don’t doubt that god places people in your life for a reason…

i’m grateful for this period of emancipation. a time where i can really be myself and i get a clear view of who i’m becoming. and i’m also grateful for those people who have come along at this point in my life. people who i didn’t really know before the month of july are people that i talk to on the regular. y’all are the best…you know who you are.

my time with my family has been great too…shouts to twilla for telling me to go home and spend time with the fam before i get away again. it’s very therapeutic in some senses…to feel the love and the strength of the family unit before i head to athens where i’ll be alone in sense of people, but i’ll be strong in my network of sisters and brothers in christ. i’m excited about heading to georgia in like…10 days…because after all “the will of God will not take us where the grace of God cannot sustain us” (quoted from Rev. Billy Graham).

so here i am…emanicpated and loving it…

“there’s been a change in me/was blind but now i see/GOD gave me victory/and he did it SUDDENLY/He changed the way i walked/He changed the way i talked/He changed my attitude/and He did it SUDDENLY…” ~suddenly

to GOD be the glory for the things he has done:
**because of who you are i give you glory…i worship you because of who you are…
**lord make me over…make me over again…
**who am i that you are mindful of me…that you hear me when i call…
**there will never be a friend as dear to me as you

peace and blessings
