the current situations, circumstances, & struggles you are facing don't define you, nor do they make you any less than who God has made you to be. Trust me, there will be times where you will feel otherwise. That whatever you are dealing with, or going through, has full control over you, but it doesn't.

I've been going through the same thing these last couple weeks, but though it all, I've grown & learned so much about myself. I mean of course it wasn't easy nor was it something I wanted to go through, but God revealed so much that I wouldn't have seen if it wasn't for the circumstances I had been through.

Just like Elisha's prayer was for his servant, "Open his yes, Lord, so that he may see" has been the exact prayer that I've been praying. Praying for peace, understanding, & clarity.

Queen, be reminded, that what you are going through, will make you better than before. God has a purpose for everything under the sun. He has you going through fire, so you can be refined. He wants to not only mold you, but help define you. To reveal to you, who you are. For you to walk boldly, as pure royalty which you are.

My mother-in-law, a true definition of a Proverbs 31, stay spitting knowledge with me. She shared, "Some of the biggest promotions come after the enemy stirs up strife & discord. He will have you questioning everything you are doing, trying to dim your light. Pray & seek God in the chaos, that he will bring you peace. God may be trying to grow you in some areas, as well as stretch you. Conflict, hurt, bitterness, resentment will damp what you are trying to do. Ask God to help your heart to stay clear, clean for him."

And that's what its all about Queens, we are not fighting against flesh & blood, but against the enemy & his wickedness. We must stay prayed up, strapped with the full armor of God, (Ephesians 6:10-18) walking with the confidence knowing that God is with us, helping us fight.

" Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit,which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people."

If the enemy didn't find you a threat to the kingdom, why would he feel the need to attack you? He finds you intimating, he knows that you are going to do great things for the Kingdom. Don't allow him to plant seeds that will take root. Ask God to kill those doubts, fears, frustrations, anger, whatever it is that is causing your mind to become cluttered. Hold every thought captive, guard not only your heart, but also your ears.

Relationships that are no longer helping you grow, but only drain you must go. As Queens, we learn that toxicity & negativity have no room in our hearts. We must continue to fully come prepared & equipped to fight whatever the enemy tries to throw at us. Cause listen ladies, we are more than conquerers, we are warriors, we are beautifully & wonderfully made, designed with purpose. Wear your crown boldly Queen.
