Too many of us are quick to give them out, yet we save the hate and doubt for ourselves.
Speak love into your being.
No matter how much you hate your nose or the way your thighs touch or the way you can’t look or live up to society’s expectations of “beauty”,
protect your heart.
Your heart is where the true essence of your beauty lies.
What you choose to observe with your eyes, what you choose to hear with your ears, what you choose to believe in your mind and what you choose to absorb into your being, can potentially seep into your heart and mould you into a beauty or a beast.
So be careful what you allow or put up with in your life. Surround yourself with the lovers, the nice people, the wise, the caring, the believers.
You are what you speak 💖
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:2.
When I first started this journey, I was nervous about sharing God’s word and the work He has done in my life. I don’t know the bible off by heart or even considered intelligent to my peers, all I know is what God has done for me and my life experiences. So I have my days where I feel unworthy, I sometimes worry about what has been said about me or how others perceive me, but the more I get to know Jesus and read the bible, I realize it’s not about pleasing others, it’s not even about me. It’s about God’s will and what He has planned for my life.
For awhile now I’ve been trying to get into a habit of starting and ending my days with Christ. It doesn’t always happen and every day isn’t perfect, but every day is a chance to progress and start over. So I like to start my mornings with a prayer, I try to read scriptures in my down time, watch sermons and podcast online before I go to bed and end my day with a prayer.
I can’t tell you how much my life has changed since I’ve started devoting my thoughts and time on Jesus and His promise! He has lifted a lot of burdens and guilt I carried around with shame and worry for so long, things that were holding me back from reaching my true potential, being the best version of myself. I’m so happy to say that God is faithful and true. I’m not loving him because my life is perfect, but because his love is perfect. It’s real and He’s real. Everybody’s saying God is dead yet my spirits being fed, my soul is being nourished and my heart is being blessed.
I’m not worried about the non- believers and the haters, I’m here to share the work God is doing in my life and with my life. I want to inspire others to start their own journeys and to slowly make steps to making Christianity, their reality.
