I heard T.D. Jakes say once that, “you cannot be a successful orator if you are not a lover of the written word.” After hearing this I realized I needed to make some changes. The first thing I decided was to begin to remove the things in my life that took my time away from seeking God. Some things I removed, and others God seemed to remove for me. It’s been a painful process, especially since I never desired the platform I currently have. It’s all a bit overwhelming. Secondly, I began to read more and not just the Bible. I truly believe that as I walked through this process of God pruning me ( I walked through this with a pretty bad attitude , I did not suffer well at all ) I lost my mojo….I lost my flavor.
This morning in my personal devo time I fell upon the verse Mark 9:50.
Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? You must have the qualities of salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other.
I found myself recently saying, “Ok God, now that I know I’ve lost it, how do I get it back?” Honestly getting my mojo back has not been easy, but it has been easier because of these these 4 things –
1. I’ve been on my face
I have been actively seeking God. I’ve been in the word, and spending time worshiping him. I have had to re-learn how to be MADLY in love with my Savior.
2. I’ve called for back-up
I’ve been surrounded by some pretty major woman of God who have been pouring into my life and cheering me on.
3. I had to be honest with myself about some stuff
I am working this one out. It’s been the hardest thing to overcome so far…writing this blog about losing my mojo is another step towards being more vulnerable…even as I write this I want to delete the post …eeesh
4. I understand what I lost ( salt )
Salt flavors, preserves and heals the world around me. It is essential that I am able to serve my world with love infused flavor.
Honest Moment: I am not running at 100 percent yet, but I am getting there. God is SO faithful and I know if I stay chasing all He is and His perfect will I’ll totally regain it back at full force …
Living life alive,
