I must say that I am starting this post with a convicted but absolutely thankful spirit. I was brainstorming some hashtags for an upcoming campaign (keep your eyes peeled), when I decided to revive the hashtag from the beginning of this year #Fight4U. For some reason using the hashtag again bothered me. I couldn't figure out why so I said maybe it's being used by somebody else...So, I googled it. Sure enough my search yielded a number of responses. I tried a different variation #fightforyou, tons of stuff a gospel singer, fitness people and a bible verse. I said okay God let's see what you got for me...of course, God would give more than expected and not necessarily what you expect.

You see the whole idea behind #Fight4U was to be empowering, to encourage us Moms/Wives/Women that we can achieve our dreams and that we don't have to sacrifice them because we are Moms, Wives or Women. That we should fight for those dreams. Well, here is what God says:

Exodus 14:14 The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.
Deuteronomy 1:30 The Lord your God who goes before you will Himself fight on your behlaf, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, 
Deuteronomy 3:22 Do not fear them, for the LORD your God is the one fighting for you.
Joshua 23:3 And you have seen all that the LORD your God has done to all these nations because of you, for the LORD your God is He who has been fighting for you. 
Nehemiah 4:20 At whatever place you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.

Yep, verse after verse! Then God led me to this thought. This year has been especially tough for me and I spent a lot of time praying through situations that I had no control over that seemed to arise one after the other. Many times I wanted to crawl in bed and call it a day but God! I can only think, if I had to fight these battles alone. Hello...a couple of times I had that white flag pressed and ironed, ready to wave. I say again but God! Sometimes I went still because that I was all I could do. But there he was fight after fight slaying and moving as I followed behind when the coast was clear.

So today I officially bury the hashtag #Fight4U because I now realize that at the end of the day, there is no possible way I could ever truly fight for me alone. Instead I choose to be #StillinMyStory because I'm still here thanks to God and I ain't fighting no more because I don't need to and neither do you!

Stay Fruitful,
