As I grow

I do realize that I am a rare beauty (no I’m not laying on the horn lol), but The most beautiful thing about me is that I have a heart for God. Living a life that pleases Him is important to me and I strive for excellence when it comes to my walk. I am challenged daily to strengthen my walk with Him. Although I may slip up and fall at times, I am wholeheartedly pressing towards the mark for the prize of the high calling ( Philippians 3:14). In doing so there has to be a constant renewing of my mind (Romans 12:2). I can’t expect to move forward in newness when I am partaking in the old. My old self has died and been made new in Christ. How can a young believer stay pure? By living according to the word (Psalms 119:9).

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

When I look into the mirror, what do I see?
A woman that’s put together so wonderfully.
I was phenomenally made by God.
Yes, cheerfully He created a masterpiece to display.
For His work to speak of His goodness each day.
Let His greatness be seen in me
May my life be rich in favor for all to see.
I could really care less about what people think about me;
I cant allow their words to determine my destiny.
For me to become enslaved to the words of society,
would be a total disappointment to the One who created me.
I walk with confidence because I know Who holds my future.
I’m on a quest.
I’m on a mission.
Lord, use me.

Different for a reason

I remember never fitting in. Thinking back I was set apart before I knew what being set apart meant. I never felt accepted. It was never meant for me to be “down”. I was an outcast. I was …different. Changing the way I talked to fit in happened more often than none. How I dressed changed with my friends. I imitated what I saw because what I saw was liked. so I thought. I had no idea I was doing myself a disservice by being a duplicate…a wanna be. I had no Idea I was different for a reason. I was called to be showcase my individuality. There’s a need for my uniqueness. I have to be me in a world that’s telling me to be someone else.

To be continued….

I see you

I see you
I see the smile you wear to cover up the pain
Maybe if you smile hard enough no one will know you are going insane
You’re physically and mentally tired of putting on a front
When will someone hear you screaming “help”
I see you
You’re hurt, frustrated, and depressed
But you can’t even talk to anyone because you’re afraid of them finding out you’re a mess…inside
I see you
So you silently drown in your sorrow
Suffocating
Grasping for air
I see you
You decide enough is enough
I’m ready to exit this life
I can’t take another day of pretending and living a lie
How about I overdose on meds and just die
I see you
Life isnt worth living
It’s a constant struggle
No one understands
Man, where is this bottle?!
I see you
But before you pop that top to the bottle
Let me say
Jesus Christ is the way
Popping pills won’t heal the wounds
Taking your life isn’t cool
What if I told you Jesus sees you too
He’s waiting with outstretched hands to receive you
When will you realize that battle isn’t yours but His
Lay your problems on the altar and leave them there.
He will heal the hurt
He will mend your heart
He sees you
Run
Run into His arms
He’s waiting

I won’t give up on you

In spite of my hurt. In spite of the pain. In spite of the broken heart. ‪#‎IChooseToLove‬. When it isn’t returned. When you kick it to the curb. When you treat it like trash #IChooseToLove. Christ loves me. If I claim that He lives in me, I must love you like He loves me. Greater is He. That Greater replaces my inability. My “I can’t”. My ” I’m over it”. So I won’t give up on you. Why? Because #IChooseToLove ‪#‎LikeChrist‬ ‪#‎EvenWhenItsHard‬ ‪#‎IWillLove‬ ‪#‎GreaterIsHeThatIsWithinMe‬ ‪#‎HesGreaterThanMyPain‬ ‪#‎Love‬ ‪#‎LoveDeeply‬ ‪#‎WhatIfChristGaveUpOnMe‬

Who Are You?

Who are you?
A person that is defined by the clothes you wear?
The latest car, latest watch, the style of your hair?
The fact that the world glorifies outward appearance is sad.
We are rated and categorized based on how well we perk our lips, raise our brow, and [snap]
You pause…
“Like”
“Like. Like. Like.”
“Like. Like. Like. Like. Like. Like”
Pops up on your screen.
You smile because this temporally raised your self esteem.
Don’t you know your worth?
Don’t you know you are a gem?
We have become slaves to a social scam.
We say “I don’t care what people think’…but are constantly worrying about what people think.
When will we realize the worlds opinion doesn’t matter.
How you feel about yourself when you look in the mirror is the only opinion that really matters.
Run away from the facade society created.
There’s more to you then the short skirt and heels.
Pick up your head, smile, and learn to love you.
You’ll never be happy if you wait for the validation of others.
You, my dear, are wonderfully and fearfully made.
You were created in Gods image.
Let me say that again….
YOU ARE WONDERFULLY AND FEARFULLY MADE.
YOU WERE CREATED IN GODS IMAGE!
The more you say it, the more you’ll believe it.
The more you believe it, the more you’ll see it.
So, Who are You?
YOU ARE a winner!
YOU ARE an overcomer!
YOU ARE a success!
YOU ARE beautiful!
YOU ARE smart!
​YOU ARE a gem!
YOU ARE unique!
YOU ARE one of a kind!
YOU ARE more than a conqueror!
YOU ARE extraordinary!
YOU ARE an achiever!
YOU ARE fabulous!
YOU ARE dope!
YOU ARE kind!
YOU ARE fearless!
YOU ARE worth it!
YOU ARE worth loving!
YOU ARE more than enough!
YOU ARE destined for greatness!
YOU ARE fearfully and wonderfully made!
YOU ARE Gods masterpiece!
