Good Morning My Loves,
Saving Grace Sunday to you all. Today is going to be marvelous, I speak, believe it and receive it. Today is the day that you retire your position as being the victim. Dr. Steve Maraboli said it best, “Stop validating your victim mentality. Shake off your self-defeating drama and embrace your innate ability to recover and achieve.” It’s time to forgive yourself, forgive whomever hurt you, let go of the past hurts and move on. The one person you are with forever is yourself, that relationship is eternal. Until you love yourself, truly love yourself, you are not capable to love anyone else because you can’t give what you don’t have….YOURSELF.
As a victim of domestic violence, I had to tell myself I will not be the victim. No one deserves to be hurt by a spouse, significant other or friend. Let me tell you this and make sure you hear me clearly…..if they do it once, they will do it again. Do not allow yourself to be someone else’s place to release their anger. Some people will never change and you have to accept that and change yourself. Everyday tell yourself, “I am not what happened to me, I am what I chose to become.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says, ” Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres….LOVE never fails.” If you ever wonder what love should be or what kind of love you deserve refer to the Bible, God defined it perfectly.
Even in a storm something beautiful can happen when you feel your world is falling apart. A humility, a nobility, a higher purpose emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor. You can choose to let whatever hurt you have faced define or confine you, or you can gather your courage move on and leave it behind you. Let today be the day you learn the grace of letting go, the gift of good-bye and the power of moving on. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. Be kind, you never know what battle someone is fighting. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!
