We Need Your Influence Now More Than Ever.

Updated: Aug 6, 2023

"Flowers grow back even after they haven't been watered for a while... So will you!

Never underestimate the power and reach of your influence. It's difficult to see the impact of a storm when you’re standing in the eye of it. You’re touching and impacting what you can’t see. The eye of the storm is mostly calm. That means whatever stands in the middle of it

cannot comprehend the reach of its lightning, understand the power of its thunder, or fully recognize the impact of its wind. 

So While you are laying in your bed feeling bored out of your mind and can’t find anything to do constructive during this (CURFEW), crying and moaning all over your house, feeling so sorry for yourself that your self-quarantine. Someone somewhere needs you to pull it together and figure it out.   

Yes, this situation is real; this has cost you something. I understand it has cost us all. But it didn’t cost you EVERYTHING. You have time, ability, gifts and talents which is ready to be unleashed. Stop feeling so forsaken and notice your blessings. Listen, I have learned that there is no stage in life where trouble ceases; it is God's assurance that we will always have faith as a weapon for war. There is no race, age, gender, economic status, or religion that is escaping this global crisis.   

We are all wounded warriors fighting and holding onto hope. Be strong, even if that means admitting you feel weak. Your survival is a promise that this world needs you. All of you! We were never meant to live our lives as an island; we were meant to be bridges that assist those we’re connected to, especially during this time when we’re asked to distance ourselves from each other socially.  I have had those closest to me vent their disdain and frustrations; however, unlike them, I am not struggling with insecurities, fear, or anxiety.

No one knows exactly how much time this epidemic will last; sadly, this carries long-term repercussions with it. The world is operating in a spirit of fear. These are critical times, unknown waters, and everyone is learning as they go. Therefore you are wasting time recklessly, ineffectively, and unproductively. 

We need you now more than ever.

We assume that our influence isn’t as wide and far as it truly is. other people can clearly see and speak to our reach and impact because they’re experiencing the effects of it. Their perspective is different from ours because of where they stand. 

Just know that you’re touching and impacting more people than you realize. They may never acknowledge or say anything to you; keep influencing anyway. They may never show their support, but they’re watching your boldness, creativity and zeal. In a time like this, they’re hoping you don’t quit, especially now, because seeing you inspires them. 

Remember, God, won’t lead us where his grace cannot sustain us. This fight will require all of you, your creativity, your uniqueness, your authenticity, and your brilliance. So go shatter pavements, go break glass ceilings, start a revolution and stand tall because this fight is going to feel long; it will feel like it's never going to end. Just remember that everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that, and all will be well.
