“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” - Galatians 6:9
Someone right now is thinking about giving up. Don’t. Today’s walk is for you. A reminder that you may suffer many defeats, but you are not defeated. It’s time to trust that what is for you is already making its way to you. Walk in expectation. You have sowed, prayed, and waited and we’re here to tell you that victory is in sight. The type of victory that will have folks scratching their heads because they just couldn’t have imagined that it would be you who was chosen. But it will be. Your harvest season is here. Let’s get aggressive about collecting your bounty!
Spiritual Warrior of the Day:
Two unsuccessful campaigns. Two defeats. One in 2016 and one in 2018. A woman who lacked faith might have given up. But not Cori Bush. Her calling was too big. Her work - to bring justice to the streets of St. Louis in the wake of Michael Brown’s murder - too important for her to give up. So she didn’t! Instead, she rallied 2,000 volunteers, they went and knocked on 25,000 doors and made more than half a million phone calls, and this summer she did what no other Black woman in the state of Missouri has done, defeated the incumbent in a historic race for congress.
Today’s walk is for every Black girl who was ever counted out. This is history in the making. The story of Cori Bush, an activist from St. Louis who battled back from homelessness, domestic violence, and sexual abuse to become one of the rising stars of the political arena. From Cori, we learn about the art of tenacity, about the divine timing of God's blessings, and about the spirit of fearlessness that comes from walking in faith. Lace-up and lean in. This is going to be a beautiful conversation.
