Worship Wednesday- Seeking God First

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:13

I was riding with my hubby when this song came on the radio. We always listen to the same station (the FISH lol) so I know that I’ve heard this song a million and one times. But, just like every other Worship Wednesday song… something spoke to me when I heard the first line. The Holy Spirit immediately told me that this was the song for this week. It’s funny because about a week ago, I had a conversation with a sister in Christ who reminded me not to seek a “thing” over seeking God himself. And it’s so easy. It’s so easy to treat our Father like a genie in a bottle. It’s easy to expect him to answer our prayers the moment we pray them, and then we even get upset when his answer is wait. It’s SO easy to read off our list of needs and wants in our prayer time, but never spend one moment just sitting and seeking God. I want to encourage us, all of us that are believing God for something. No matter what the thing is… to see God’s face, his heart over his HAND. I want to encourage us to desire to me made more like Him, as much as we desire our “thing.” I want us to want HIM, more that that “thing.” 

And that, my friend.. is the hard part. We have to be ok, knowing that God is enough. Even if we never get that “thing..” [Now this is not me telling you not to prayer and walk by faith..] But, I am telling you to check yourself and make sure that you aren’t idolizing a thing or desiring something more that you desire Christ. At the end of the day, we have to be okay with God’s plan and timing. The only way that we can do that is if we are seeking Him wholeheartedly and finding comfort in Him. 

Sis, I want to hold my baby in my arms with everything in me. I will never stop praying for our promised children. But, as much as I want a child.. I have to be sure that I am desiring God more than an answered prayer. I have to be sure that I don’t just pray for our baby and get up. I have to be sure that I don’t make an idol out of motherhood/pregnancy. I have to be sure that I will STILL pray and seek God after He answers our prayer. And, I have to know that He’s still good, faithful and GOD even if the prayer goes unanswered. I STILL have eternal life, free from all pain, suffering and a brand new body because He sent His Son to die for ME. I STILL will serve Him, glorify Him and worship Him— even when the answer is wait. 

“Before I bring my need, I will bring my heart.

Before I lift my cares, I will lift my arms.

I wanna know You, I wanna find You

In every season, In every moment

Before I bring my need, I will bring my heart

And seek you…”

Let this be the cry of your heart this week. Let this be the TRUE desire of your heart. There is nothing wrong with asking Abba for everything, and taking everything to him in prayer. Let’s just be sure that we don’t run to him like a sugar daddy. He deserves ALL of us. Not just a prayer when we want/need something. 

“When You call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. Yes, When you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.” Jeremiah 29:12-13

Raven was amazing, she helped me with my cyst and bacteria infection. She knew EXACTLY what I needed to address each issue. She made sure I had everything I needed. Even when I arrived at the store, I called her to make sure I had the correct items... she answered right away and clarified that I had everything. She checked on me every few days to make sure my issues was getting taking care of. I highly recommend a session with Raven for any holistic womb care, health, holistic medicine, etc. thank you Raven so much! Love you

Raven Thomas helped me in my TTC journey by giving me knowledge on what was actually going on with my body and helping me understand my hormones. She educated me on hormone imbalance and the negative affects  that it  has on the body. Raven's  outstanding wisdom lead to me getting pregnant. She walked me through my pregnancy with healthy ways of eating,books and managing my emotions in a healthy way to promote a wonderful stress free pregnancy. During my Postpartum phase she answered all of my questions for breastfeeding, and how to still rest with multiple kids for recovery, any issue I had she made sure she gave me the emotional support as well as a game plan to overcome my issues I was having. I highly recommend her for all of your Doula needs and brestfeeding services. She has such a heart for women and wellness!!

If you’re wondering whether or not you can receive quality care from a doula even if it’s just virtually the answer is yes. Raven provided vital information on what I could expect, request, decline, and more throughout my pregnancy experience. The actual doula I chose to contract here in New York where I live is everything Raven told me I should have in a doula. When had my virtual consultation with Raven, she was polite, informative, reassuring and even answered my million questions. I think a virtual consultation is key for anyone who is unsure about what doulas do and who they are—and if doulas aren’t readily available in your area having the consultation helps with your search. If you are looking for someone to help you choose the right doula service, and you’re not able to meet in person, I would highly recommend having a consultation with Raven. Simply put, she is amazing. - Mrs. Adara Sherron First time mom to a baby girl.

Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner
