Be at peace 

I am sick to my stomach. I have  been as I watched election results all night. The tears started this morning around 5am. This is a slap in the face of everything I am. An African American . A woman. An immigrant. The people of this country have waited 8 years to show their true colors and it hurts. I started reconsidering everything and all decisions. Do I change jobs now? Do I continue to try to have a child? 

As I was laying in bed, my mom sent me this devotional for today. I have this devotional. It is entitled “Jesus Calling”. 
It was exactly what I needed to see. I can’t worry myself to a better outcome. My God STILL sits on the throne and THAT is ALL I have to lean on. Be at peace today my friends. After my appointment, I’m going back home and cocooning myself in my apartment. Self care is necessary today. If you need to, log off. Disconnect. Fortify yourself for whatever the future holds. And as my pastor says: “We know how this story ends, so live in victory.”

  1. I did as you did. I hid out and did not watch any media. I love the devotional you posted and will share it with my husband. The future is indeed scary, but we have to have faith. There is a reason for all of this. Maybe it will spotlight the hate, maybe bringing it out into the light will help people wake up. That’s what I’m praying for.

  2. I’m not going to lie – I barely slept last night and my stomach was in knots so much, I couldn’t even eat the dinner I prepared. But now I have clarity. Are things better? No. I see a lot of changes and not necessarily for the better. However, I cannot let fear rule me. I can’t be afraid of the unknown or would’ve/could’ve/should’ve. I just have to hope and pray for the best.
