The “Fussing Auntie”

Happy Tuesday, Overcomers!

Today, I want to ask you (us) to be kind to yourself.

The same grace and forgiveness that you extend to others? Extend it to YOU.

The same way you extend a pass to others for being human? Extend it to YOU.

Stop being your own hater.

Stop being your own enemy.

Stop putting yourself down.

Start building yourself up.

Start affirming yourself.

Start applauding yourself.

Starting telling yourself, “I can do it.”

Start pursuing your best version of yourself.

I’m wearing the “fussing Auntie” hat today. And while I’m fussing at you, I’m fussing at me, too.

I’m finished fussing now. (smile)

I want to see you win. I want you to have the best. I want you to be the best version of you possible. You have permission to live!

Work Your Process

Happy Monday, Overcomers! It’s that time again!

I had a weird experience yesterday that I want to tell you about. I was driving down a back road in Georgia (I wasn’t speeding this time), and I noticed a car behind me and he swerved a little, venturing a little off the road. If you know anything about back roads in Georgia, you know that you don’t have a lot room for error.

The road switched to two lanes and the driver passed me. I slowed and stayed a good distance behind him because I saw him swerve a couple more times and veer just off the edge of the road.

I began praying for the driver. I asked the Lord to protect him and help him make it home safely. I prayed that whatever his physical or mental condition was that he would make it home safely. I prayed for the angels to protect him and guide him safely home. I prayed for his peace and his salvation. In that moment, I felt the weight of this man’s life.

This is how I see you, beloved. I see you headed toward your destination. You are on your journey towards healing and wholeness. I see you swerving a little. I see that you get tired sometimes. I see that you sometimes feel hopeless in the process. I’m praying for your strength. I’m praying for your faith. I am praying for your life, your purpose. Don’t give up. Keep working your process. Your best days are ahead of you. It will be worth it in the end!

Thought for today:

Make sure you are healing and not just growing accustomed to the pain.

When a person has surgery, the doctor may tell you to wait six weeks before participating in certain activities. By week three, you may feel good enough to move furniture, but know that when/if you do, you will injure yourself, and could possibly end up back in surgery or in worse condition.

Work your healing process. Pay attention to your heart, mind, spirit, and body. Be healed. Be delivered. Be set free.

Remember, God loves you.
I love you.
You are loved.
You are worthy of love.
No matter who dropped you, God willingly picks you up.

My Protector

Happy Friday, Overcomers!

I’m my early twenties, I had a dream that I will never forget. I was in a corner store, and someone came in shooting. As I stood frozen in fear, bullets were hitting me but bouncing off me and hitting the floor. All I kept hearing in my ear was, “No weapon formed against you will prosper,” which is found in Isaiah 54:17. I did not know at the time that weapon formed against me was me.

Years later, I reflect often on this dream. I reflect on a loving Father that saved me from myself –  how He protected me. He saved me from the way I felt about myself. The way I felt about life. I’m not going to ever lie to you and say that it’s all been perfect. It’s not going to happen in a blink of an eye, but through process and work, you will get there.

It will get better. Every day is not going to be a bed of roses. Matter of fact, if you know anything about roses, you know that there are thorns on the stem. But they’re still beautiful, yes? So, I want to encourage you on this journey that we are on, that though there are thorns, the roses (your life) is still beautiful. You are beautiful. You are worth the time invested in you by your loved ones. You are valuable. You are loved. You are enough.

Thought for today:
I’m thankful that you are reading this blog. I am thankful that you have decided to give life another try.

As you head into the weekend, will you do me a favor? Have some fun. Hang out with some friends. Get some sun. Allow someone to show you some love. I look forward to speaking to you Monday.
