The Art of Being Undone
undo-(verb) undid, undone, undoing.
To reverse the doing of; cause to be as if never done. To do away with:erase, efface. To untie or loose.
I finally quit my full-time job a few months ago. If you remember the piece I wrote entitled Take the Leap & Find Your Wings, this was a long time coming. Back in the Spring while in Miami, I had a realization: I’ve had a job since I was 15 years old with the exception of a three year stint post undergrad where I was chronically fired and unemployed. I’ve spent the vast majority of my adult life working places that merely allowed me to survive rather than truly thrive in life. Imagine how freeing it was to discover at 33 , no real responsibilities, debt-free and emotionally whole that I’m now in a position to do WHAT I WANT, BECAUSE I WANT TO!!!!
These last few months, God has truly amazed me with his faithfulness and provision. Every need has been swiftly provided for and as soon as one stream of income ends, he quickly opens up another one.Unusual opportunities have been manifesting and I’m walking in a lot of divine favor.
The concept of being undone has been rolling around in my spirit for some time now. I specifically like the part of the word defined as “to reverse the doing of, cause to be as if never done”. That is exactly what I’m experiencing in my life during this season: God has been ridding me of ideas, relationships and the mentality that I am only here to survive and causing me to rest in a place of ease knowing that he desires for me to have joy in life while being my authentic self all while doing what I love.
Lately, my time has been spent resting, reading, upping my exercise routine, spending a TON of time with friends, making healthier food choices, re-calibrating my soul, and just relishing in the stillness of who God is and who he created me to be. I have an insurmountable amount of peace and joy and honestly haven’t been this happy in a long time. I am not entirely certain just yet of the specifics of what my next season holds. Recently, I’ve received a few prophetic words reminding me that God has caused me to stand out, will use my gifts in a unique way, has me in unchartered territory and get this that I will be undone by God’s love!! ( HEY NOW)
As you’re reading this, I hope it reminds you of some of the areas of your life where you need to be undone. Places in your heart that God will reset so you don’t even resemble the unfortunate things you’ve walked through and that faith will rise in you to step out into new territory knowing that he will guide you every step of the way.
Peace & Love,
