Creating From Scratch

It’s now been just over 5 months since I first heard that we had to go into isolation due to COVID 19. And during this time I’ve rested, I’ve been anxious, I’ve been happy. I’ve been sad. I’ve been excited, because I’m working on book #2.
I’ve had times when I’ve danced in my living room and sang to the top of my lungs. A few of those times you’ve seen. I’ve had times where I’ve literally groaned before God, either in pain of not understanding something, feeling hurt. Or I’ve had times where I have simply cried out in prayer on behalf of something heavy on my heart. Maybe you can relate? But whatever the emotion of any day brought me, 
God would always bring me back to Him. He’s the one who would always give me the ability to RISE above whatever I am facing.

On Jan 1, 2020, I woke up to realize I had a dream  that I was being taught to make bread from scratch. 
I felt as though I was in Bible times, which looked something like when I was in Uganda and the ladies were making bread from scratch, and they were teaching me how to make bread FROM SCRATCH.
I remembered laughing because I said, my strategy is always, quick and easy, and with the fewest steps possible. But here I am being taught to make bread from scratch, and feeling pretty good about myself I got all the ingredients, and I’m good to go.

However, when I took my bread out of the oven, it was FLAT.  I was SO confused. I said, but I had all the ingredients! Whats wrong? Why didn’t my bread rise?

And someone came and said, yes you had all the ingredients, but look you forgot to add the key ingredient. You forgot the yeast.

I said, oh no! I totally forgot the yeast! I made sure I had all the things I needed, but I guess in my excitement, or even nerves about making the bread from scratch,  whatever the reason, I forgot the yeast.

There was an elder in my dream and he was compelled to give me some spiritual insight. He said, “Vahen, just like yeast is the key ingredient to have your bread rise. PRAYER is the key ingredient that God uses to make you RISE.”

He continued by saying, don’t let ANYTHING distract you from focusing on the task at hand.  The way you used to do it before, well, that mindset will not be enough when your creating something from scratch.

What God is doing in you now is new, and will require a NEW MINDSET.

You must be diligent with all the things God has given you to create. Yes, you have everything you need, but you need to be discipline enough to see it through, and  not get distract  and forget to keep PRAYER as that MUST have ingredient.

Because if you forget prayer, or don’t make it your priority, you will fall flat, and not rise as God intended you too…
