May The Fourth: The Journey Continues

First of all, I'm grateful for the gift of writing from my Heavenly Father. I'm beyond grateful that during those speechless moments, both in my life and the lives of those around me, Holy Spirit was there to whisper a narrative. Those narratives are captured in After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground.

One morning recently, I woke up with another narrative playing in my head. It was the answer to these questions:  Why do we experience so much pain? Why do we consciously make decisions that are harmful to our bodies, minds, spirits and souls? The answer: Because we don't know the truth of God's word! The Bible has something to say about everything! I didn't know this until I began studying the Bible for myself.

Today, I want to introduce to you an upcoming series from the PoliteJourney vault. A series not from someone claiming to be a spiritual teacher nor someone called to a particular spiritual position but a series from someone who is just wanting to share God's truth to inspire deliverance. Deliverance into the life predestined for you from the beginning of time!

I was in a dark and confused place more than once in several areas of my life. God's word was my light. His truths destroyed the lies. I began speaking His word over my life, and I haven't been the same since! I want everyone to have this experience, because it is available to YOU!

Life Lessons from Prince

Prince’s transition was so much more than the loss of a person. It heightened the awareness of his impact on the world and led me to a place of reflection.  As a poet and someone who colors outside the lines, hearing and seeing Prince made me realize I wasn’t alone in being a little different…a little weird.

His music and artistry taught me much about life—what is and what was to come.

“The beautiful ones, they hurt you every time
Paint a perfect picture
Bring to life a vision in one's mind
The beautiful ones
Always smash the picture
Always every time” ~The Beautiful Ones


“'Cuz in this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life, you're on your own” ~ Let’s Go Crazy

“Women not girls rule my world

I said they rule my world
Act your age, mama (Not your shoe size)
Not your shoe size” ~ Kiss
“How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry” ~When Doves Cry
Blog post Life Lessons from Prince by Trinka Polite

“Do I believe in God?
Do I believe in me?
Some people wanna die
So they can be free” ~Controversy

“Don't worry 'bout tomorrow, don't worry 'bout your pain
Don't cry unless you're happy, don't smile unless you're blue
Never let that lonely monster take control of U

Be glad that U r free
Free 2 change your mind
Free 2 go most anywhere, anytime
Be glad that U r free” ~Free

“Hey, check it all out
Better look now or it just might be 2 late (just might be 2 late)
My lucks gonna change tonight
There's gotta be a better life
Take a picture sweetie
I ain't got time 2 waste

Oh baby I'm a (star)
Might not know it now”~ I’m a Star
“Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out for something new”~Purple Rain

Block Identity Theft

In all my years of counseling, I've found something to be true. The root of most emotional and mental conflicts involves the human desire to be loved, needed, and seen. The turmoil grows when one or more of those desires is insufficient or missing. As a response, we may begin to exhibit extremes in one or the other.  

Tell me if this sounds familiar; People who are in love with "love." Someone being described as "too needy." I admire creativity and individuality, but sometimes ostentatious behavior may hint at a longing. The longing may develop into unexpressed anger. I can't tell you how many ways unexpressed anger manifests itself in our lives. Depression, bullying, overeating, people-pleasing, and working compulsively to name a few. Transparent Moment! This is not only knowledge gained from my profession, but I'm speaking from personal experience. 

The key for me--which I believe is the key for all of us--is uncovering the lie! Feel free to comment with your thoughts, but the lie is that the human desire to be loved, needed, and seen is only fulfilled from a place or source outside ourselves. No, my friends. We first need to know who we are on a spiritual level. Spend time communing with God our Creator so we understand His original plans for our lives. Develop a relationship with Holy Spirit to develop our gifts to serve the world. Talk with our Saviour Yeshua, our joint heir, in order to portray the image in which we were created--our heavenly Father's.

Then and only then will we interact with the world from a place of knowing we're already loved; our gifts are needed; and our image is a reflection of our heavenly Father! So what does all this mean, Trinka? I'm glad you asked. Thank you.

It means the human desire to be loved, needed and seen starts within, taking away the power for the world to tell us what love is, give us our purpose or define who we are. Connecting and building a relationship with the Holy Trinity, we are now equipped to fulfill these desires based on spiritual truth and reject anything contrary to it!

Here are some scriptures on spiritual identity which I enjoy:
God's Love

Which scriptures keep you grounded in your spiritual identity?

New blog post on Feasting on the Divine with Trinka Polite


Sweet Children,
I see you rushing through your day and staying up all night worrying. I am God. I am Your God. Slow down. Talk with me. Get to know Me as God your Father so you can experience peaceful rest...now.
Forever Loving You,

Psalm 46:10 King James Version (KJV)

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalm 46:10 Amplified Bible (AMP)
“Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 46:10 The Voice (VOICE)
“Be still, be calm, see, and understand I am the True God.
I am honored among all the nations.
I am honored over all the earth.”

exaltado seré entre las naciones[a], exaltado seré
en la tierra.

Notas del Amor de Dios: Salmos 23


Blog post: Love Notes from God: Psalms 23  by Trinka Polite

My Beautiful Children,
I will watch over you, comfort you, provide for you, protect you and love you always and forever. And when this life is over, you will come home--to My home-- and live with me forever.
Love, Your Father


Psalm 23 New Living Translation (NLT)

1 The Lord is my shepherd;
    I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows;
    he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3     He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
    bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will not be afraid,
    for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
    protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
    My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
    all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Psalm 23 The Voice (VOICE)

1 The Eternal is my shepherd, He cares for me always.
2 He provides me rest in rich, green fields
    beside streams of refreshing water.
    He soothes my fears;
3 He makes me whole again,
    steering me off worn, hard paths
    to roads where truth and righteousness echo His name.
4 Even in the unending shadows of death’s darkness,
    I am not overcome by fear.
Because You are with me in those dark moments,
    near with Your protection and guidance,
    I am comforted.
5 You spread out a table before me,
    provisions in the midst of attack from my enemies;
You care for all my needs, anointing my head with soothing, fragrant oil,
    filling my cup again and again with Your grace.
6 Certainly Your faithful protection and loving provision will pursue me
    where I go, always, everywhere.
I will always be with the Eternal,
    in Your house forever.

Salmos 23 Dios Habla Hoy (DHH)

El Señor es mi pastor;
nada me falta.
2 En verdes praderas me hace descansar,
a las aguas tranquilas me conduce,
3 me da nuevas fuerzas
y me lleva por caminos rectos,
haciendo honor a su nombre.
4 Aunque pase por el más oscuro de los valles,
no temeré peligro alguno,
porque tú, Señor, estás conmigo;
tu vara y tu bastón me inspiran confianza.
5 Me has preparado un banquete
ante los ojos de mis enemigos;
has vertido perfume en mi cabeza,
y has llenado mi copa a rebosar.
6 Tu bondad y tu amor me acompañan
a lo largo de mis días,
y en tu casa, oh Señor, por siempre viviré.
