You Have Been Released!
February 25, 2018
(Letter to my younger self)
Dear Lil Risha,
Thank you for being patient with me over the last year! I am sorry it took me so long to get back to you. You really took me back down memory lane as you know I was experiencing a rough patch and honestly, there were moments where I just wanted to wallow in it. I know foolish of me because I should know better! You were right I should never forget how far our Heavenly Father has brought us. So here we are nearing 30 years old. Wow, we are getting older (smile)! Did you think we would ever make it to this point in life? You are preparing to walk right into your divine purpose in life. Remember, you wanted to be a star, you wanted the world to know your name for helping other people to live out their dreams through music.
Now in a few short months, you will be given the opportunity to fully share our journey specifically, what happened when we were five years old. As I reflect back to that time period, I am sorry that you had to endure it but most of all I want to thank you for being so strong. What you suffered should have never happened? There are moments where I wish I could go back in time and protect you from what happened. However, all things are working together for our good because we love the Lord and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). The blessing through it all is God has ALWAYS been with us! Even though we may not have understood why it happened, we can reassure you that by boldly detailing the journey it WILL break generational curses, help so many others in the world to overcome and receive freedom, healing and ultimately walk in wholeness in Jesus’ name. Thank you again for recognizing that I needed to stop playing and remember the many testimonies that our Heavenly Father has granted us. We have been charged to bring praise, glory, and honor to the name of the Lord.
Over the years, I have allowed your child-like demeanor to direct my emotions/reactions when difficult situations arise. Recently, I have noticed there have been moments where I have reacted to a situation in the same manner you did following the acts. Risha, it is time to release you from the place of (timid/shyness, running from conflict and not speaking up) once and for all. It is my turn with the leading of the Holy Spirit and the strength of the Lord to be STRONG moving forward! I decree and declare that moving forward your five-year-old demeanor will no longer have control over my emotions, mindset and reactions in Jesus’s name. I am loved, I will not walk in fear, and I am not an orphan, abandoned nor rejected! I will stand firm on every single promise that my Father has spoken over my life. Why? There are people in this world that are waiting to hear from me to release the blueprint of how I have overcome! I have already declared that I AM FREE, HEALED and WHOLE! I will no longer allow people, things, circumstances nor the enemy of my soul to silence my voice.
I have been called for such a time as this!
