Some days, I just need to hear some things. I need the reminder. If you’re like me, you need it too. So here’s truth.
It’s difficult to see disappointment in the eyes looking back at you, but you’re not reflected there.
Don’t let someone else define you. You’re not them.
What you’re going through isn’t irrelevant. It’s so not.
Don’t discount small moments, painful moments, or difficult times.
Don’t discount the process. It’s real. Struggle has far greater value than we want to admit.
Fear has absolutely no value. Yet the cost eats away at self worth.
Remember this: There is no darkness in light. Fear can only hide in the shadows, and You don’t belong in the shadows.
Hear me now:
Verbal abuse is abuse. It’s a vocal attack filled with lies. It’s mentally destructive, physically destructive, relationally destructive, and soul destructive.
You are battle weary, not worthless. Get help. This is a fight you need to win.
Whoever told you that you’re unlovable- lied. Flat out lied to you.
You are loved with an all consuming love by a God who sees you, who knows you, who created you.
There’s an enemy of your soul, and he’s become transparent. His lies have become visible, clear, evident.
You are worth so much more. See the lies for what they are.
Lies are not, cannot, and never will be truth.
It’s time to wake up. It’s time to walk. You were made for this life. You were made to live. Perfectly designed. Perfectly crafted by a God who sees you. A God who knows you.
Take down the pictures. Those walls can’t hold you captive anymore. You know this to be true. It’s why you’re here. Right here. Right now.
You are so much more than you’ve ever believed.
God is so much more than you’ve ever believed. holier, greater, kinder, just, loving, forgiving, compassionate.
It is time for change, and you’re ready. You know this. Look how far you’ve come already.
You’re not the person you once were. You’re so much more.
So, get ready. And yes, there will still be difficult days. You’re going to need the handbook.
Dig deep into the Bible. The Message, the amplified version, ESV, NASB, NIV. Look for the letters. They’re written on the binding– Just like your name is written on the back of His hand– where He can see it everyday.
Last thing for now: When you leave this place, make sure you’ve walked so close to the fire, you smell like smoke. And bring someone out of the fire with you.
