let me explain this one: people see the value in your growth. they see how you’ve held on to your love, in spite of the pain of heartbreak. they see you’ve remained a giver in spite of the times people have taken advantage... they see how you’ve been able to build from brokenness. they see how you’ve been able to forgive after betrayal... and they think if they get out of pocket, you’ll still love, give, build, and forgive them. what they don’t know is that version of you is reserved for people who honor your growth, not test it.
i hope you are not keeping quiet easing up taking your time watering things down and switching things up at the expense of your own peace. sometimes peace comes from finding your voice. sometimes peace comes from applying pressure. sometimes peace is followed by a sense of urgency. sometimes peace is found in consistency. sometimes peace is won by fighting for your own cause. peace needs to be with you too, sis.
brick by brick one prayer after the other relationship by relationship penny by penny one application after the other knocking on door after door showing up day after day holding on minute by minute... she slowly put her life back together again. she amazes me. where she at?
God showed me who i was a long time ago and i wish i could say i believed him. i saw myself sharing this message of hope and healing. i could envision me encouraging and speaking life into other women. i felt like i was supposed to share my own story in some way. i knew i was carrying a message. but it was hard to maintain that vision when my reality and circumstances showed me something different, but the vision survived. it took years of working through my own mess to peel back the layers that covered my true self, and i am grateful the message survived- and the people that need it the most have access to it. when i say she turned her pain into power and everything changed, i am she. i work everyday to turn the pain, the doubt, the hurt, the loss, the disappointment, the betrayal, the upset, the mistakes, and the other mess into a message. swipe for today’s message. the pain to power tee available now.
