Time to Shine

Thema Bryant-Davis

To my sisters who have become dusty with the residue of racism, the stains of low self esteem, and the pollution of poverty
To my grandmothers who have known bruises, burdens, and break downs
To my mothers who have suffered set-backs, sexism, and loss of sanctuary
To my daughters who have sinned against themselves by forgetting who they are
The alarm bell is ringing and it is time – past time – for you to be washed in the healing waters of your destiny, washed in the holiness of your sacredness, washed in the memory of your possibility
This is the day – a day not like any other
This is the season – a season that the universe has not known
For yesterday is gone and you must take off the heavy coat of regret
Yesterday is gone and you need to put down the luggage of limitation
Clear your mind with the anointing of the One who really knows you – the One who created you
Bathe yourself in integrity and dress yourself for the divine appointment
For this is the time for you to shine
You are right on time for the miracle that is you
The miracle that God is working in you and through you and for you
You are more radiant than the sun, your wings span mountain tops, your gifts are deep as the Atlantic, your wisdom is beyond your years, and your victory is guaranteed
It is time for you to shine
No more hiding, fearing, worrying, fretting, betting on your demise
Tic toc, tic toc
Women of the sun, daughters of the Son
It’s your time to shine

    I love this! It has just recently been put on my spirit that if I want wisdom, strength & courage, one of the things that I have to change is my speech. I have to speak those things as though they already are! And I have to ask God for them – we have not because we ask not. Thank you Bishop Vashti for sharing this.
