This morning I was hit with a wave of emotions. Y’all, I’m telling you, I really don’t know what is happening to me lately! After listening to Pastor Sarah Jakes Roberts message, “Glory Triggers,” for the second time (was distracted when it first aired), it dawned on me that I had not worked through some of my triggers. It wasn’t until this morning that I realized I have been running from them, not dealing with them.
It’s like I can see every trigger that has made me run. Those triggers that made me feel vulnerable. Even those things that should have made me feel like I was on top of the world actually made me feel like I was unworthy. I have a lot to unpack and work through. The crazy thing is, I thought I had worked through everything and was on the other side. But all I was doing was avoiding them.
Yeah… It’s time for me to stop running and stand still long enough to acknowledge these feelings so I can work through them. I now realize it’s the only way I’ll be able to successfully move forward.
Self awareness is a beast!

Hey Ms. Shaun,
I said I was going to watch that message sometime today, but I think your post is my que to go watch it RIGHT NOW! A lot of things/people will trigger us and sometimes we don’t even know we’ve been triggered or that they are a trigger at all. Now I’m really excited about the message. Here goes!

Yes, it was a much needed word. One that I didn’t realize I needed. Enjoy!
