When we began preparing Tori to get her license I started thinking about how much easier life would be when I would no longer be driving her to all the practices and games that are a daily norm. I could imagine all the extra energy I would have. The reality is that Tori is now confidently driving throughout our little neck of the woods. I on the other hand went from being physically exhausted to emotionally spent. I am constantly sending out little prayers for her. She sends me a text once she gets to her destination and then before she leaves. “Check behind the car before you pull out!” I say. “I knoooow” is the reply. I have a memorized safety checklist that I feel I have to remind her of every time she walks out the door. I can’t wait for this to get easier. I have to laugh when I think back not even 6 months ago when she started driving everywhere with me. I had a few moments when I thought I might need some sort of anxiety medication to get me through the learning curve. The Holy Spirit got me through then and I am equally sure He will keep me going now as I sit at home during each of her independent trips and await the next text that says “Mom, I’m here safe and sound.” Be careful baby girl.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
