Embrace the good and work on the bad. Take time to relax and celebrate the beauty of being you. This is life, not a marathon race. Treat each day like a New Year and a new beginning; you can start over at any time. You don’t need a calendar to tell you to start again, dream again, or that there is a new you.
How do we ensure we don’t allow the cares of the world to distract us? How do we not allow the issues and circumstances plaguing our cities, our neighborhoods, and our families to cause us, to drift from our dreams and goals? How do we ensure 2018 will not be a repeat of yesteryears and will be as great as we proclaim?
As women, the world tells us we are strong because we survived such pain. But our survival is hidden behind the veil of poor eating habits, obesity, failed relationships, mediocrity and low self-esteem. Life has become a struggle. We know there is more. We know better is out there. But we just don’t know who to call and where to go.
our repayment is dependent upon your willingness to come out of hiding! Your transparency will provide a window for which others can break free. When I decided to write my story of molestation, low self-esteem, anger, and bitterness, it was not to point fingers or assign blame but rather to obtain freedom to finally live and show others that forgiveness, deliverance, and abundance was possible just like God promised.
Misery loves company. I have found that those with emotional baggage tend to group or attach themselves with people who are just as broken as them. Check their circle you will probably find the same damaged people. How do I know? Because I was her. I was the one with the bad attitude, series of failed relationships, always the victim, suffering from loneliness, yet isolating myself from others and I chose my relationship standards based on a painful past.
Many people choose their profession, but as believers, followers of Christ, purpose chooses you. Purpose prepares you and purpose overtakes you the moment you say Yes! Purpose never told you it’s not about you, but it’s about the people connected to you and the people whom through you will experience the love and compassion of God.
