Good Afternoon My Loves,
If you woke up today happy and healthy you’re blessed. As long as you keep waking up in the morning, that’s evidence He is not through with you. You have a purpose. The theme of your life story is the platform God will use to speak through you for His kingdom. Your life has purpose and your story is important. Your dreams count and your voice matters, you were born to make an impact. A life well lived is measured by those moments when you give of yourself, more than you think you can. There are some things that YOU came here to do. That only YOU can do. Don’t let your old story define you. Owning your story and loving yourself through the process is the bravest thing you will ever do.
What you have experienced in life does not define you, therefore let it refine you. Don’t keep quiet to assist another’s comfort. You are not the victim rather the victor, don’t be ashamed of your story it will inspire others to heal. It can be a key to unlock someone else’s prison. I have survived things that have killed others therefore my life is a message of hope and encouragement. The past is just a story. Once you realize this, as a result it will have no power over you. Someone may be in need today to hear your testimony to give them courage to leave an abusive relationship, or to help them heal from childhood abuse. Or someone may need to hear your testimony to know it’s time to free themselves from the mental jail they’ve been in. When you are ready to heal God will give you courage to share your story. When your story is heard, how you were able to get past your past, you will help heal others. That is when you will realize your greater purpose.
I’m braver because I have fought giants and won, that’s the David in me. I’m stronger because looking at my children’s faces and wanting better for them forced my strength. I stand taller because I’m a survivor and I refuse to bow before anyone but God. Sometimes people haven’t apologized to you because they are ashamed. Forgive them anyway! Sometimes you may have to be okay with an apology you never received. Forgiveness frees you and unblocks your blessings. It’s not about anyone else, it’s about being a better you.
On this day, right where you are I want you to be encouraged. Take it one step, one moment, one day at a time. Invest in yourself…you can’t afford not to. I want you to know that God loves you so much. You are not alone, He is always with you. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and more importantly a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!
