✨W a i t . 💫 #Devotional
Last night my sister, Kinesha Johnson-Roach, was returning from LA and her flight got delayed. Her bags were packed and she was on time for her departure. She waited with great anticipation to quickly return home to be with her husband and children. Her heart dropped when she looked up and heard that her flight would be delayed.
Immediately, I heard “His hold up may be your hook up.” and sent it to her and my sisters in our WhatsApp group chat.
Often times, we get flustered or frustrated by the “good things” that we have to wait for. In my travels, every single time there was a hold up, a hook up was not far from it.
Build your hopes on things eternal.
“Time is filled with swift transition,
Naught of earth unmoved can stand,
Build your hopes on things eternal,
Hold to God’s unchanging hand.”
It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine years since my family got the news that I was being rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. My mouth was twisted. I couldn’t say my name without slurring or stuttering. My right side was limp. No laughter. No wit. Very little strength. I was having a mild stroke.
To all of the staff at G. Stanley Hall, my time with you has been sweet and I wrote this one just for you.
Be of good cheer.
Have courage, you brave one, you.
This job is not for wimps.
Not for the
