Value is determined by the seller not the buyer. So in other words, they can only buy at the price you’re willing to sell. When you recognize your worth you won’t settle for less. You’re not invaluable because you’re waiting, you’re waiting because you’re valuable! Don’t sell yourself short. Sit on that shelf and wait til the right bid comes along. #foodforthought#therealmacoya

I attempted to discuss this topic briefly via live but that was a fail. 😂 So here we are... _ Everyone’s willing to climb up the ladder but how many are willing to come down? If Jesus willingly lowered Himself for our salvation and freedom why are we too good to do the same? We live in the era of “being celebrated and not tolerated” and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s important that we recognize our value and identity as children of God. However, we shouldn’t allow this to become the means by which we operate in opposition of the very identity we claim. Think about it! _ At times, we feel we’re too good to do this or do that, especially when we’ve already done this or that. But is that what Jesus did? Did He not extend His hand and welcome us with open arms no matter how many times we turned our back on Him? So if we’re not willing to apologize, forgive, give, be the bigger person, work in the background, take the position, pray, sacrifice and inconvenience ourselves that God’s light and love can shine through us... who will? _ Lord, if I HAVE to lower (humble) myself that a brother or sister may come to know You, taste You, see You and feel You through me, I’m WILLING to do so! Give me the strength, courage and wisdom to recognize that my value isn’t determined by how I’m treated but by how I live. In Jesus name, Amen. _ _ Philippians 2:1-11

November 7th 1999 I got baptized at 8 years old. Although it was technically an official beginning of my spiritual journey, I wasn’t fully aware of the significance behind it. Once I became an adult, I wrestled with the idea of getting re-baptized a few times but shrugged it off. (Thankfully so!) _ April of this year I had a divine encounter with an advisor that confirmed my need/desire of getting re-baptized. I knew the importance of baptism intellectually but it simply hadn’t registered in my heart intimately. To put it more plainly, it was as if in that moment I transitioned from being a spectator to a participator. (Religion VS. Relationship) _ After that encounter, I wasted no time in contacting the staff at my church to schedule the baptism. However, it didn’t happen right away, for whatever reason I do not know! 🤷🏾‍♀️ But almost 20 years later on July 28th, 2019, through a spontaneous prompting of the Holy Spirit, I got re-baptized. 🙌🏾 _ Today I accepted the love of a Father, acknowledged my need of a Savior and surrendered my life into the hands of my Lord. Over the years, I’ve struggled with trying to live life on my own, wrestling with God for control of the wheel rather than trusting that my life can rest safely in His hands. Well today, the tide has turned! I’m excited to see where this wave will take US next! #wontHedoit#therealmacoya#newbeginnings#sequoiamacoya

So treasure it by staying in your lane! _ How dare we feel inadequate or inferior because we’re not where we think we should be? Who said that? 🤔 Is it because we’re using the “comparison metric system?” 👀 If that’s the case, our calculations will be wrong every time! _ Solomon, Saul and David (among many others) all became king through different means and at different times. And if you read further, their effectiveness as king wasn’t based on their number of sales, followers on social media or millions in their bank account; but on something I’d like to call the “devotion and obedience to God metric system.” Interesting! _ So in other words, what you do and how you do it isn’t merely as important as who you do it for. As long as you’re in the will of God, you’re exactly where you need to be. Everything you’re going through has value because it’s developing you for the journey ahead. So don’t board ship or jump ship prematurely. The enemy’s goal is to use competition as a device to get you out of position. Don’t fall for the bait. 🎣 _ Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. - Galatians‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

No matter how imperfect you are or how unqualified you appear to be, your imperfections don’t disqualify you. _ So let’s toast to the people that are willing to push pass their insecurities and imperfections in order to accomplish the extraordinary. People that are willing to say yes to God and follow Him. People that are willing to leave behind whomever and whatever in order to run their race... but also recognize the importance of picking up along the way. People that know that although it won’t always be easy it will always be worth it. Cheers! 🥂 _ _ Philippians 1:6
