Here, you are home. Feel free to leave all fears and insecurities at the door and show your perfectly imperfect self. Here, you can pick yourself up again, laugh again, breathe again, and leave fear and anxiety behind. Take a deep breath of relief. You can be yourself here. Just the way God made you. If you don’t know who that is, don’t stress or be afraid; you’re about to find out having the best time of your life.
You belong here. Take all the pictures and the snaps, but let your life speak louder than your social media. Open up your eyes. See the possibilities. They’re endless for us all, so no disqualifying yourself, your friends or any stranger. Come live a victorious life, a life full of joy.
Words are powerful so use them wisely, for building up and spreading love. We live in victory; not by stepping on the hands of our neighbor. No, we will pick up the wounded and fallen – without judgments because we will fall too – and be a neighbor. If someone offends you, forgive them, buy them a coffee and move on. Think the best of every soul. Life is to short to hold a grudge. No haters. Everyone is on a journey, beautiful and unique.
Know that you’ve got something special and there’s no one else like you. Don’t compare yourself to others, but only to the old you. Trust the unchanging God that is changing you every day. And if you don’t believe in yourself, we do. More importantly, God does too. You can do this.
