A couple of years ago, I lost someone who was very important/special to me. Grief has a way of overtaking you in waves. I miss my mom like you wouldn’t believe. Although she didn’t give birth to me, she was my mom. I miss her voice, her laugh and my God her smile. It had the ability to light up an entire room. She was the sweetest most accepting person I’ve ever met….Not don’t get It messed up-she would put you in your place QUICK, in a loving way of course. But you knew she meant business. She taught me a lot. She taught me the importance of never giving up on yourself or your dreams.
A couple of nights ago, I had a dream about her. When I tell you my heart was so happy to see her. In the dream it was a lot going on, but there was one thing that stood out. It was the escalator and the staircase.
In the dream, mom was purchasing an item. The bag looked to be heavy. I immediately said “mom, I’ll take the bag” she smiled and said OK, but take the stairs. I was confused as to why she said that, since it would’ve been easier to take the escalator.
Since that day, I’ve been thinking about the significance of the dream-but today…Today, God revealed why.
The escalator is remotely controlled. It has the ability to allow the passenger to ride without work. A lot of people in life, will choose to take the escalator, even walking while riding believing they’ll end up where they want to be faster. But what happens when it breaks down? However; the stair case is underappreciated. It requires physical strength to endure the steps to get you to where you need………at the appointed time. Sure, it may seem like it requires more work-and in hindsight, it will. But it’s necessary for greatness and endurance.
We shouldn’t be looking to take the escalator in life. We should be seeking out the stairs to build the endurance thus arriving to our destination at the appointed time. Arriving too early can cause gridlock(we can see the blessing but we’re not ready for it).
Let me tell you something. I had the best praise break here in my glass office just now. I’m grateful that God used my mom, to teach this lesson. For me, it came at the right time. I was missing her and I needed to be in a place to receive this blessing.
Gods doing a new thing, I don’t want to miss my number being called because I’m rushing for the escalator. All things will happen in decency and in order. DO NOT try and rush your season, checking to see if you’re too late or perhaps you’ve arrived too early. Your blessing will find you, when God needs it too. Tend to your own garden, instead of watching the harvest of others. Message received, loud and clear!
