Listen wisdom speaks.....I remember a few years ago I was scheduled to speak at a event with other speakers. I went up and thought I did a terrible job but hey once you keep at it, eventually the confidence comes. Then another speaker comes up, she was fire and I mean fire. I loved every minute of it. No jealousy, no envy I was secretly saying to my sister friend that I didn't know. "Do it sis !" Long story short I followed her on social media.
A while later I hear her preach a message that oddly felt familiar. Well because it was. Sis had taken the first 30 minutes of MY entire message and preached it with the confidence that I was lacking. Was I mad? Nope. And no it was not the Lord it was her taking my words. I know my language, my wording, my message that only a therapist would use. She was not me or a therapist.
I wasn't mad or angry. I however realized that when you really have something on your life it can me imitated but the revelation can never be duplicated. The message clearly wasn't that bad, because she proceeded to reteach it.
I took it with grace. It has never been my practice to imitate or preach someone else's message. If I quote I give credit. No plagiarism here.
The truth is I have messages that I have never taught that date back to 15 to 20 years. Maybe she had to steal my message I am so equipped I would never have to do the same.
I am still not mad at her no shade whatsoever.
People admire you in secret. It's okay.
Remember what God has on your life is for YOU.
You are a designers original. His divine master piece. While others may glean from your extra, God is filling you with more.
Be bold, be beautiful and remember you can't be duplicated.
Sis should have asked me for my notes I would have given them to her. LOL 🤷
Trust there is more than that.
And nope I am still not mad, if I see her to this day it would still be love. I didn't even mention it to her why? Because it was a minuscule thing compared to what God has dropped on my life.
I am a designer original, admired, and made by God. So are you.
