All right, grab your journal, and let’s build this blueprint. My name is Tiffany Huff-Strothers. Hey beacon, welcome to your belt, blueprint community Podcast, where you are challenged to be do and have God’s best as you thrive on your journey from setback to success. I’m your bounce back guide, Tiffany Huff-Strothers. And I’ll be guiding you on the journey by sharing tips, tools, and the T on how I was able to bounce back from escaping death healing from heartbreak and finding hope in homelessness. And then I wrote an award winning book all about it and shout out to God. Ever since I was courageous enough to share my story. My life and the lives of women around the world have been forever changed. And as a member of the bounce back blueprint community, I’m called to teach you to do the same. So grab your journal, and let’s build this blueprint also known as your bounce back guide. I am a life and writing coach. And I am here today to share about the power of the command that is today. So today is a unique day. If you are listening on this, the day that I’m sharing this, today is a unique day because today is the only day of the year that is in and of itself a command a declaration. And when I say that what I mean is that Today is March 4 and march fourth is the only day of the year. That is a word that is a complete or that is a complete sentence. And so I wanted to come through this morning and talk to you about marching forth because this is generally the time of the year right, we’re coming to the end of the first quarter, we’re coming into prayerfully what will feel and look like spring right based on the weather and the changing of seasons. And so this is the time where we start to get a little antsy about the the resolutions and the goals and things that we set and we made that we have not been consistent with or follow through with. And so I wanted to bring you a little bit of encouraged this more encouragement this morning, and share with you why now is not the time to give up and why now more than ever, you need to get back up and march 4. And I’m going to share this Scripture with you first it is from Ezra 10 four. And this is the message version. and it simply says this, now get up, take charge we’re behind you don’t back down. And so this is a word specifically for you. If you have been in a space where you have been feeling like you’re growing Where are you been feeling like you’ve been ready to back down you’ve been feeling like even though you know, God has given you a call or charged you to do something, anything and everything that could go wrong is going wrong. And so you have been feeling like you are down you have been feeling like you can’t take charge you’ve been feeling like it’s time for you to back down now is not the time to retreat. Now is the time to march 4. And so I want to share quickly three things that are necessary for you to march 4 and three things that you may be feeling like you lack and or you might not recognize that you lack or that you might not recognize you are not utilizing the full power of and that is why it’s been a challenge for you or it feels challenging for you to march forth. So the first thing Is that you’ve got to have clarity. And if you’ve been following me or been connected to me for a while, or if you know me, you know, clarity is my jam. And the reason is that we so often take clarity for granted, we don’t recognize the power and having clarity. And sometimes people don’t really understand the fullness of what clarity is, in this season, though, what I feel like a lot of us are struggling with is being able to discern the difference between doing the most and doing what’s most important, right, we are challenged, especially because of the internet. And publicly, inconsistently seeing people’s successes, and not their failures that we feel like we need to be doing all of the things all of the time. And so instead of being intentional, and doing one thing with excellence, we feel the need to execute all of these different things at one time, and we are not doing any of them. Excellent, excellent lead. And so I want to encourage you that if you have been lacking clarity, it could be because you’re you’re all over the place, you’re multitasking. But even if you go back to the beginning, when God was created, he creating, he created one thing at a time, there were things that were designated for a specific time and a specific day in the seven days of creation. And so I want you to think about all of the things that you have going on and really give yourself permission, but also challenge yourself to consider what is the one thing that is most important, what is the thing that is suffering, because you are feeling like you need to retreat or you’re feeling like you need to back down. Because of all the clutter and confusion that is surrounding you. It’s weighing you down, it’s making you grow weary in well doing, it could be that you’re lacking clarity, because you’re trying to do the most instead of doing what’s most important. So what is most important for you in this season, that is what this on this day, in this week, you really need to focus on in order for you to march forth, what is the one thing that you can do and do with excellence, because here’s the reality, if you are not executing in excellence on the lowest level, you cannot expect that God is going to elevate you. And so with you marching for if you have to know that you have to start where you are, and do not despise small beginnings. But take that clarity, take that one thing and do it well. And know that God will bless that thing as long as it is in alignment with him, of course, and you will be able to march forth accordingly. Right? Like the Word says, There are people behind you. But because you’re all over the place, they aren’t really sure where or how to support you. And so with your clarity, you will be bringing clarity to others. And you will have clarity about the provision that God has already provided for the vision. But that is a challenge for you because you’re struggling with the clarity. So that’s number one. In order to march forth, you need to have clarity, number two, in order to march 4 is going to take some courage. So it takes courage to decide to focus on the one thing, it takes courage to get up as the scripture says, after you’ve fallen down so many times, and especially if you’ve fallen right in, in air quotes, especially if you fallen publicly, right? If you set a goal if you set out to do something, if you said last year and the year before and the year before, we’re going to be your year if you’ve shared that you’ve been praying and God has affirmed or confirmed a prayer but the manifestation isn’t fully open and available to other people you may be challenged with having the courage to get back up and continuing to march 4 and what you already know. God has told you yes and amen about but men cannot see. And so they are challenging you. And so I want to encourage you today that you know you perform for an audience of one be reminded that validation is for parking and your affirmation has already come from God. So no matter how many times you fall, get back up and get moving. Because there are people behind you there are people supporting you, and there are people in need of what you have, you have to have the courage to keep going. And also, back to that original point. When it comes to choosing making the decision to focus on the one thing and do it excellently. You have to have courage, because oftentimes it means you have to stop doing something right. In order for you to focus on that one thing, you’re gonna have to have the courage to stop, right. You’re also going to have to have the courage to start doing that thing consistently and with excellence because it’s going to require some shifts in your life. Life, people will question people will give you the sad eye, but you have to be courageous and march forth anyway. And in addition, focusing on that one thing, right, deciding to drill down and execute with excellence is a risk. So you have to have the courage to take a risk in order to march 4, and bring to fruition what God has called you to do in this season. And then finally, you have to be committed. Again, I’m gonna go back to Ezra 10, it says, Get up. And this might be something you have to consistently tell yourself over and over again. Now get up it didn’t say get up later than say, tomorrow, get up. It didn’t say, after you mess up all day today get I says now get up. So that means even if you failed this morning, even if you fail an hour ago, 10 minutes ago, get up now, and take charge. And let me be clear in saying that, when you are committed to taking charge, it’s doing the next best thing that you know to do. It’s not you moving into God’s position and stepping out of your own its meaning doing the next next best thing that you know to do. And knowing that there are people behind you the vision for the provision is already there, you have to march 4, and you have to be committed to marching forth. And that commitment comes in that last piece that says don’t back down. That means even when you come up against a mountain, don’t back down, even when it gets harder than you expected it to be. don’t back down even when it feels like people aren’t supporting you don’t back down even when you’ve been doing it for the 90 days, or the six months or the nine months that people told you it was going to take and it still hasn’t shifted the way you expected it to don’t back down March 4, today is a day for you to reset. Today is the day for you to begin again. Right, it’s Thursday, it’s Friday Eve so before you go into the weekend, deciding that you are exhausted deciding that you are ready to quit deciding that you’re just going to give up and you’ll start again next Monday or next month or next quarter or next year. I want you to really consider whether it is that you need to march 4 with more clarity, you need to march 4 with more courage, or you need to march 4 with a more commitment and conviction that this is your season to do the thing this is this your season to become the woman God already showed you that you are this is your season, to have what God has told you you would have in order for you to do those things you are going to have to march 4. And so I will leave you again with this scripture from Ezra 10. Four. In the message version, it says now get up. Now get up. Take Charge, we are behind you. Don’t back down March 4. And I want you to know that you don’t have to do this alone. Right? The Scripture says very clearly, we are behind you. If you know that this is a season that you need to march 4 if you know that this is a season, you really need to be intentional about seeking that clarity, building that courage, having the support and a guide to ensure that you are making the commitment then I strongly encourage you to consider being a part of the next session of the power morning. What is the power morning. It is a 21 day experience with a group of like minded women and myself. Well we get together at 5am.

And really learn the process of prioritizing both yourself and your relationship with God. From the moment that you wake up through that 21 day journey you will get clarity, right you will build the courage and work through your trust issues around really trusting God, really being intentional about your relationship with Him so that you can make the commitment and do the things that he has called you to do. Right. So you will get not only 21 days of coaching, you get access to a great community of women, you get access to a workbook that is chock full of not only resources, but prayer prompts, meditation exercises, physical exercise readings that will support and guide you through the journey. And then you have that ongoing community and support so that where you don’t know what to do, you not only have me as your guy but you have other women who are also seeking God and going to the throne on their own by behalf and also on your behalf to both challenge and encourage you. So I strongly encourage you to take the first step and being able to march 4 to Your resurrection, right? So Resurrection Day is April 4, the power morning starts on March 15, Monday, March 15. And we will be marching forward on that 21 day journey which will end on Resurrection Day. So if you know that there is something that you are working towards there is something that God would have you do, and you need that clarity, that courage and you need to make that commitment or you need to recommit. And you really want to see resurrection power manifest in your life in this season, then I strongly encourage you to grab the link in the Facebook video, if you’re watching there. The link in my bio, if you’re on Instagram, and if you are listening to this on the podcast, and you can grab the link in the show notes to get more information about the power morning and to reserve your spot. We kick off on Monday, March 15. I pray that this word was a blessing for you that it gives you If nothing else, something to think about. How is it that you need to show up in March 4 with more clarity, more courage, more commitment, maybe you need to march 4, with more of all three. And that is all good knowing is half the battle. The next step is to march 4 and take an action. So I look forward to seeing you join myself and other women on March 15 for the power morning and I pray that you will begin to march 4 Now you will now get up.

Says I promise you are playing your self be blessed.
