it's a perfect day for letting goI am a particular individual that I would be watching a T.D Jakes sermon and have this song pop into my head.
for setting fire to bridges
and other dreary worlds you know
let's get happy!
it's a perfect day for making out
to wake up with a smile without a doubt
to burst grin giggle bliss skip jump and sing and shout
let's get happy!
Admittedly, I have not been in the best of spirits the past few days. It's not a depression, seriously it's more of an oppression and my own damned flaw to have to know as much information as possible. It's so easy to be still when the river of life is smooth but man, oh man when you reach that Class 5+ part of the journey things get a little hairy.
So, yeah, there have been parts of this day that I really just had to push through.Not the whole day, just parts here and there. I don't know if it was tiredness or what, but I sat down to journal and floodgates opened up, along with a whole barrage of questions for God. I finished and pulled up YouTube on the Roku and flipped through the recommended videos. T.D. Jakes "Discerning the Next Dimension." was one of those recommendations. I picked it because I have a favorite sermon by another preacher called "Next Level"
Yeah, so, you know how when something random is so appropriate and spot on and it kinda totally gives you some confirmation because after all the YouTube algorithms could not have known the day that I had or what was weighing on my heart. It's pretty much a sermon about getting over your own bullshit and once and for embracing the purpose that God put you here for. It was pretty much a sermon about not letting the continual beatings of life deter you from following what it put on your heart. More or less. It's probably better if you watch it yourself...and don't think of it as a sermon, think of it as a motivational speech with a Biblical reference point.
So what does one have to do with the other?
I think the summation of the Jakes talk is reflective of the following verse of "Doing the Unstuck"
but it's much to late you say
for doing this now
we should have done it then
well it just goes to show
how wrong you can be
and how you really should know
that it's never too late
to get up and go
Maybe I do know what I am supposed to do. Maybe I have always known my next dimension but I let all this insanity cloud my vision and disconnect me from my purpose. I know that I am guilty of this because I used to be up this late all the time writing and creating but I let the shadow in someone else dim my own sweet light.
This verse of the song:
It reminds me in a modern way of Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV):kick out the gloom
kick out the blues
tear out the pages with all the bad news
pull down the mirrors and pull down the walls
tear up the stairs and tear up the floors
oh just burn down the house!
burn down the street!
turn everything red and the dream is complete
with the sound of your world
going up in fire
it's a perfect day to throw back your head
and kiss it all goodbye
Next level. Next dimension. Doing the Unstuck. It's all possible. Hopefully soon, I'll get to write a post called,"Break on Through to the Other Side."18 “Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
