When You’re Given a Platform, Use It To God’s Glory! Thank YOU For The Birthday Wishes

By  |  9 Comments

I’m going start right out by saying this post is dedicated to every single person that sent me a text message, posted a sentiment on Facebook/social media, and/or gave me call for my birthday.  If you said a prayer for me or even thought about me on my special day but didn’t get a chance to reach out, believe me when I say; your love and energy was genuinely felt.

Those who are close to me know, I’m that sentimental friend that try’s find the perfect gift that’s personal to you, even in celebrating me, I celebrate you, I still send Christmas and Birthday cards (via USPS) and I send random messages of love & encouragement, and even a little ‘thinking of you’ gift if I’m moved to do so.  When I received and read through the all of the birthday well wishes, I was literally moved to tears.  You all have no idea how your sentiments and thoughtfulness fed my spirit.

My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. John 17:15

As a result of social media, we can sometimes create (even inadvertently) a picture of what we want our friends to see and hide the not so pretty stuff going on in our lives.  Owning it; given that I’m not a person that wears my feelings on my sleeve, if I don’t directly inform you that I’m going through something, you may never know.  If you just look at my post, some might think that everything is great; work, family and personal life. It’s not that I’m being phony or that I’m hiding anything however; I’m a chin up and face life challenges head on kind of person: do what you gotta do!  Therefor; when you express words of encouragement or share your sentiments with me, please believe that touches me deeply.  Even the encourager needs encouragement!

This year has been an amazingly successful time on so many levels inclusive of promotion and God’s favor yet; it has been just as full of obstacles, test and trails.  Some days I felt like throwing my hands up, but God. God has sustained me through some situations that I know were meant to break me physically, emotionally and spiritually.  I am humbled by HIS grace and mercy and extremely thankful for the blessings that HE sends via each and every one of you.  

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  Ephesians 6:11

When things happen in life, I don’t think that I am alone when I admit that let I can be hard on myself and I allow doubt and negative thinking creep in.  However; when I read your words, they served as that push needed to stay the course.  Friends both old and new, loved ones both near and far see the very essence of who I am in Christ and that is my purpose. Not to boast of my accomplishment but to glorify the work of God in my life even in all of my imperfections.

This blog could have gone in so many other directions yet, I extremely clear that;  When You’re Given a Platform, Use it To God’s Glory!

And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.  Romans 8:27

With deep gratitude, thank you all for blessing me on my special day.  I look forward to continued growth, another year of love, light and lessons.    Spread Love, It’s the BrooKlyn Kisha Way!

      Thank you for your kind words Reese. I’m a work in progress but if God can change me, all things are possible for them who believe.
