We can let the things that we’ve been through make us or break us. You can either allow them to pave the way to a stronger you, or keep you trapped in that place of hopelessness. The choice is yours fam.
Enough is enough fam! If you know that there is someone around you that is holding you back. That is constantly making you second guess yourself. That always seems to clap last, then maybe it’s time to create some distance and space so that you’ll have room to grow.
When I first came out as a Christian, everything in my life changed and it wasn’t all easy with butterflies and rainbows. If you’re going through this, you can relate completely. And if you know someone that’s transitioning to Christianity, maybe this will help you see them in a different light.
As women, we can be extremely selfish. We focus so much on what we want from our husbands, that we sometimes neglect to meet their needs. Fam, I’ve been there. Pshh, I am there. Girl, we are powerful, limitless, and intelligent beings but come on, we also can be temperamental, bratty and I’ll just say it, mouthy. I know it’s 2017. This is clearly not the 50’s where we were all housewives with no other purpose but to take care of the house and kids. (Not saying this is a bad thing, but we actually have rights now). We’re business women, entrepreneurs, wives, mothers, scholars, artists, CEO’s, producers, actresses, teachers, and so much more. Personally, I love it, but we still have a duty to our families that shouldn’t be forgotten. God created us to be help mates. Ref: Genesis 2:18 “Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” We were formed to enhance our homes. To make everything beautiful and colorful. To encourage our husband’s and respect them as the heads of our house. So, Save the world. Chase your dream. Be who you are. Speak your mind.
But remember that to whom much is given, much is required. If you pray to be a wife, a mother, make sure you’re prepared to act accordingly.
I’m sure we’ve all heard of those “judgmental Christians” that act as if they are perfect, right? The ones that Jesus called hypocrites. You know, because they have the logs in there eyes but are too concerned about the speck in someone else’s? (Ref: Matthew 7:4 ) I mean, we all have our times when we judge someone. Let’s be real. But when you fail to see your own faults, you begin to misrepresent what Jesus taught. You forget where you’ve come from and condemn a person for where they are currently. “How Sway?”
With that being said, I’m an imperfect follower of Jesus Christ that serves a perfect God. I decided to prove this by exposing the sins and struggles that I deal with on a daily basis. We’re all the same. Trying to remain on this straight path, but stumbling every once in a while. Confess.Repent. Move forward.
Philippians 3:12 “I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.”
DISCLAIMER: THIS DOESN’T MEAN WILLFULLY SINNING IS ACCEPTABLE. GOD GAVE US GRACE BUT HIS MERCY IS NOT AN EXCUSE TO CONTINUE DOING WHAT GOD HAS TOLD US NOT TO DO. But, we do make mistakes.
Jude 1:14 “For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.”
STAND FIRM IN HIS WORD, FAM. BE BLESSED.
