Advent 2021: What Is Your Journey of Manifestation? by Anntoinette McEntyre
“For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.”

What Is Your Journey of Manifestation?
I remember, as a child, seeing a black teacher and hearing her name---Dr. Woody. I stopped and smiled. I remember wanting to attend Virginia Tech but thought it was too expensive and far. I remember living in The Towers at Howard University and dreaming about my next steps in life. I envisioned becoming a doctor, going to Tech, and raising a family in an area like my hometown, Montclair, NJ. The dreams, the visions that started way back then, took me on a journey.
Along the journey parts of myself had to be rebuilt, broken, and regrown. But today I am enrolled in a Virginia Tech Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Education program. I am raising a family in Arlington, VA. Thank you Jesus for making my prayers, thoughts, and manifestations come true. I will continue to believe in the prayers, dreams, and manifestations over my life.
Lessons along the way, conversations with mentors, God, and friends have given me the strength and power to push through. The journey has not been easy, but God has allowed me to say “I see it and it is mine.” God, through my manifestations, is now allowing me to experience the joy, strength, and ability to look at how far I have come. It is truly remarkable.
You must decree it, declare it, and call it, in the spirit to become, what God designed, you to be.

Join us in a time of reflection, expectation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2021.
Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
