Hey guys, I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA for a while, I had to be silent because God was helping me deal with some deep rooted issues (He ain’t done yet, but I’ma start talking already).
A gap is a break in connection between two points that were initially meant to be connected. In elementary school, we were given class exercises where incomplete sentences would be given and we had to fill the blanks in those sentences if we were ever going to make any sense out of them. Something as simple as a sentence missing a word can destroy the information that sentence was supposed to pass when it was made. But is it not so in the world today, we have relationship gaps, unemployment gaps, money gaps and many other gaps we either don’t recognize or have chosen to not speak about.
God intended a purpose for every individual and some of us might go through tough experiences to fulfill that purpose. The challenge is that most of us survive those experiences and enjoy staying in the victory without realizing that we need to go out there and fill gaps….
Imagine if every person that has survived pain and hurt started to help others that were going through pain, or if every person that has scaled poverty started giving empowering sessions and help to those in poverty. Imagine if we began to ask God what gaps we can fill everyday through the experiences we go through. That instead of spreading the gap through hate, jealousy, slander, gossip and strife, we would begin to fill gaps. When you stand in for someone, you’re filling a gap, when you pray for Houston, Mexico and areas affected by hurricane Irma, you are filling a gap, when you give to someone in need, you are filling a gap, when you choose love instead of hate, you are building a bridge-filling a gap.
I have started to ask God to show me what gaps to fill and to help me make adjustments to my behavior as He leads me.
