The last few years of my life has been quite a journey and while I am grateful for the tons of lessons I have learnt along the way it’s been a looooong one. In those years I quickly learnt that having a support system is absolute to my success. My first encounter with the concept of a support system in deliberate term was when I re-dedicated my life to Christ and I was especially building intimacy with God. I prayed and fasted a lot and the momentum was great but I was scared to loose it because I love that presence, that relationship so I began to ask the Holy Spirt for help. As I prayed one night, it dawned on me that I need a support system and I began to pray for a company of women that will stand with me in the place of prayer with unity of mind and love and press into God’s presence with me. Fast forward to few weeks later I was gifted with four amazing sisters and a beautiful journey started. Over time like the bible rightly said, God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing. God has indeed created different support systems for me in various situations and for varied purposes and I have also been positioned as support for another person. A support system can be one person or any number of people.
Merriam-Webster university define support as : to keep from fainting, yielding, or losing courage : comfort; to keep (something) going. It defined support system as : a network of people who provide an individual with practical or emotional support. I also remember a proverb that says, a tree does not make a forest. Infact God never created human beings to be in isolation, the bible said it is not good for man to be alone and he went on to make him a helpmate. I don’t know what you are going through at this time, maybe it is the loss of a loved one, an empty nest(all the children married or off to college), matured single with no real relationship, divorce/separation, just finished that big goal and now you are confused about what next or you have suddenly woken up from your slumber and you are wondering what is happening? Where did the time run to? What next? Maybe it is even a happy time, you just had a baby, got married, started a new job and life is beautiful, still a support system keeps you grounded and on track.
Yet more profound are those times when we are going through difficult experiences and everything seems bleak, a good support system will give you stability, comfort, hope and a sense of direction. So important is a solid support system that it is an entire module in an online course I’m creating. It will teach you to create a solid support system or be a support system, features of great support system, toxic versus healthy support system, healthy interdependence, why your present support system is not working & how to fix it and drawing healthy boundaries within a support system relationship. Are you as excited as I am?
We all had or have support around us most times but they are mostly unconscious, I am a strong advocate of intentional living and I know you can’t keep doing the same thing in the same way and expect a different result. Therefore I am calling you into intentional living, creating the kind of life you want by taking decisive and guided actions. Who says you have to walk alone, fight alone or do life all by yourself? Absolutely no one! So darling, let’s (Yes we do it together, we will co-create!) help you create that life you want by building a solid support system that helps you to keep going against all odds. The year 2018 is upon us and I would love to see you live fully from the best part of yourself. Trust I am already laying the foundation of my support system for 2018 as it is a year of fulfilled prophecies for me! Care to hitch a ride with me? Slide into my DM, I have huge love and respect for you
Prayer: I pray that you are guided and enlightened in all ways. That the eyes of your understanding is open and your whole being is flooded with light in Jesus Name. Amen!
