MY HEART ~
It hurts at times of life.......
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
MY HEART ~
God hears you, he really does. He doesn't remind you of your past or speak harsh words to you. When someone speaks words that hurt to me, it throws me back to being a kid. Words I would hear from my mom or words from kids at school. As I grew up, I began to speak positive words to myself. I am sure I really believed them, but I spoke them. I would say I am smart, but kids would tease me at school and say I was dumb. I just wasn't as smart as some of them because learning came easy to them. It seems like I struggled most of my childhood trying to become smart. It was in 12th grade at school, my senior year that I saw myself different. I saw a smart kid and my grades were good.
Let me fast forward to being an adult. Some adults have a way of making you feel not smart. Just don't take on their words, but take on the words of God. You can do all things through Christ, the Bible says so. You can forgive and be forgiven because the Bible says so. You are reading this blog because God has brought you here for purpose. We are not alone in life when we feel defeated, but a brand new begins right now. The right now is whatever time it is, because God wants you live in freedom of negative words, harsh words and know you are smart. Not only are you smart, but your important. God has created you for this very day.

I love God with all my heart. Once I saw myself the way he does, I forgave myself for things of life. All of us have made mistakes and maybe wishes of do overs. Yet, there are no do overs on somethings of life. I hope you can see yourself the way God does. It's also okay to separate yourself from people who don't respect you or even speak highly of you. Let it go and move on in life. There are too many people who will like you just the way you are. I like people of all ages and know we are different for a reason. I learn daily of things because others share stories too. Your story is your story and powerful. Share it with someone and be you through God's grace.
My thoughts and prayers are with you (reader of my blog), your family and friends.
