You don’t allow people to talk to you any kind of way, so don’t talk to yourself any kind of way. Love yourself. Lift yourself up. Encourage yourself. Life and death is in your mouth. Produce life. #OperationMe #LoveYourself
*looks in mirror*
Lord, what do you see?
I see Me. My work. My hand. My time well spent. I see your future. I see the pain. But don’t worry, it’s not in vain. I see greatness. Your life is a testimony. A story of how you overcame. You stuck with me through the pain and the heartache. You knew I’d make a way. So I gave you a new day. New mercies. Miracles. A new outlook. You had enough faith to see past your lows. You knew I was working on your behalf, so everything was good. Can I say, that I am pleased? Yes, I am very proud. You allowed me to be God. I am very proud. For this I will reward you openly. Your enemies will see my glory. No longer will you cry tears of sadness. Your heart won’t ache. I put my stamp of approval on you. I don’t make mistakes. please know That I put My good foot forward when creating you. I designed you so uniquely. An image of Me. So don’t be bothered if your misunderstood. I didn’t want you to feel comfortable. So many are compromising, but not you. I knew you wouldn’t. This is why I see remarkable. No matter what, keep that smile. It’s going to be seen and brighten many days. People will be encouraged just by one at look you. I gave you those eyes, so bright and bold. See those people hiding behind the masks they put up. Know that they are hurting and need more of Me. Give them that love thats unconditional. Let them know that I can heal their heart, like I healed yours. I know their very core. So stay deeply rooted in Me. Soon the word will get why I see what I see. I see Me.
Supply my need.
I don’t have have just one.
More like a ton.
I have the need to healed.
The need to be free.
I have the need of a higher self esteem.
The need of your presence.
The need of Your Spirit.
It’s more than the love from people.
It’s more like humbleness.
I need actually a double dose of that.
Because when they don’t call my name to recognize me for all I’ve done good, I’m ready to get hood.
Lord I need more of You in order to make it through.
I can’t fight this war in the natural.
I need Your expertise.
Lord it’s me.
Trying to Do everything right.
Its Your son. Your daughter.
Answer me please.
Lift this heavy burden.
I don’t want to feel this way.
I need a new day.
Cause it will bring about new mercies, right?
It will bring with it joy.
I would like to smile from my heart again.
I forgot what that feels like.
Lately All of my smiles come attached with a “like.”
I wanna be set free from this marriage to society.
I tried to play by their rules, but I can’t win.
They set me up.
They sold me on a dream.
Keeping up with the next person wasn’t easy.
It was draining. Temporary. And left me poor.
The need for more kept boxes at my door.
I didn’t order clothes and jewelery online.
I actually ordered likes, compliments and envy.
Once the pics were released in media, people would want to be me.
Not knowing that my reality isn’t very glamorous.
So Lord, I tried everything in this world to feel the void.
I sought after it all, but Your love.
All I need is You.
Im ready for more.
Send an outpouring of Your Spirit.
I give up my will for Yours.
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]
“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!
W H O A R E Y O U ? ?
Society, please don’t label me.
But if you must, call me…
Tell me that I can do it.
Tell me that I will win.
Whisper greatness to my soul.
Accept my me-ness.
Embrace my sound.
But you won’t.
So I shall call myself these things. I shall speak greatness over my life. I will march to the beat of my drum. Because I refuse to play by your rules.
I AM ME
Dear young lady,
You are loved! I know, I know. I can hear your question…I am loved? I can hear your “yeah right.” But don’t stop reading. Please, hear me out. I know things my be a little rough. I know life seems unfair. Yeah, it’s hard to smile genuinely. No one sees the pain you carry. No one hears the “help me” through the fake laugh. No one hears the “I’m over life” when you say “I’m ok.” So you think….
Your eyes tell your deepest secret. They long for an ear to whisper to. They reach in hopes they will find an individual that will care. You don’t say “help me” with your mouth because you don’t want to be a burden. So you stay burdened. Hindered. Stuck. Depressed. Down.
But, I see you!
“No you don’t”, you say.
Yes I do. How? Because I have been in your shoes. So please know that there is hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is a hand reaching out waiting for you to grab. This hand wants to save you from sinking any deeper. This hand is being extended by Jesus.
He is the way. The truth. The life. He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. No weapon formed against us shall prosper for We are more than conquerors through Him. His joy is our strength.
Reach out and grab His hand. He loves you. He cares. Trust Him with your life.
Lord, I just want to share the beauty of Your love with everyone I encounter.
May Your words spoken through me kiss their soul.
May Your Spirit smother every hurt, every pain.
Bring a peace that will flow like a river and wash every fear and doubtful thought away.
Encamp around them through their daily journeys.
May the dipstick of their joy read “full”.
And Your comforting power bring that racing mind to a complete stop.
So we are all familiar with Facebook memories, right? Well today I scrolled through and saw the following post that was made visible to the Facebook world on this day in 2014. I think about this dark moment often and thank God even more often. But as you read the following paragraph, please know that suicide is not the answer. Life is worth living no matter how “bad” things may seem. Stay prayerful and know that God loves you. HE. LOVES. YOU!!!
Facebook memory….Full of praise today!! Had a flashback and I’m SO thankful!! To think some years ago, I was having suicidal thoughts! I didn’t put a knife to my wrist or od on meds, but I prayed that God would let me die in my sleep…I didn’t care care whether or not I woke up the next morning to see another day. I just wanted out! But to God be the glory he didn’t see fit to grant me this “prayer”. And I’m GLAD about it!!! It was selfish of me to even think this way. What about my family, what about those lives that I’m destined to reach out to!! I would’ve been cutting off my purpose, my favor…my destiny!!! I’m so glad God kept me even when I didn’t want to be kept! So, treat others with love. You NEVER know what someone is going through and who your smile or a simple “hello, how are you doing” will touch!! I’m so glad that He saw fit for me to live this great life! No matter what…remember Jesus loves you and so do I!! There is nothing too big that God can’t handle! #JustWantToEncourageSomeone #Heknows #HeCares #JessCares #BeBlessed #BeEncouraged #CouldntPutAllThatIFeelIntoWords
I am changing my mindset.
I love myself.
I am worth loving.
I am beautiful.
I am a winner.
I can do all things through Christ.
I am more than enough.
I am happy being me.
