Dear Heavenly Father, I just want to say thank you for this day you have created, thank you for the joy you give us, thank you for your tender mercies, grace and love. Thank you for never giving up on us and for showing me what true love is. Thank you for your timing, thank you for being in control, thank you for the opportunities and the people you put in our live to grow us. Thank you for knowing us by name and caring for us individually. Thank you for being a way maker, the best comforter and deliverer. Thank you for the liberty we have in Christ, the freedom you bring. Lord any aspect of anyone’s life who comes across this blog who feels unsatisfied with their lives and where they are, Lord fill them up with your presence, let there be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the body of Christ. Help us to edify and build one another up instead of tearing each other down. Reveal to us anyone we may have offended so that we can make a right with them. Lord be a lamp to our feet, light our paths and help us to be the best versions of our selves. Let there be an increase of you O God in our lives, and let us decrease and take away the pressures of what other people think we should be, take away every burden and anxiety which we possess which is hindering our effectiveness for you O Lord.
In Jesus Name Amen
This is an introduction to a new chapter of my blog which I want to develop. It involves being transparent and that vulnerability of sharing your story. A lot of the time we try to cover our wounds and not so perfect past, pretending that everything is okay, when secretly we are hurting in silence. Sadly this happens a lot. I feel like God has placed in my heart to add a Testimonial element to my blog, this involves you. I want it to be more engaging.
I was watching a Sarah Jakes, women’s conference on YouTube called ‘Never Stop Becoming’ and it inspired my approach to how the testimonial element will come to life. Every season has a purpose and God will make your story beautiful. Sarah Jakes mentioned that often people will hurt silently while projecting confidence, that we put on this role of being okay when we are not. Being scared of the response you will receive.
Our story, our truth is evidence of God’s great power and he deserves to get the Glory from our lives. Transparency is key to embracing who you are.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
2 Corinthians 3: 5
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2 Corinthians 3: 17
Here is my story and the introduction to ‘Embracing your truth’ season, I hope you gain something from it. I have learned through my story, to Never Settle for anything less than God’s best for you, no counterfeit will compare.
