If you find yourself fearing what lies ahead and you want to quit, this post is for you.
Often times in life, it’s so easy to feel like throwing in the towel and quitting on ourselves. Trust me, I often find myself wanting to do just that
You see, I can be good and determined in certain things but be really bad and complacent in others
I wear a huge smile on my face in the spotlight but behind closed doors I find myself often being sad
I tell myself each day that I will make it despite life circumstances but then often times I resort to doubting my own abilities
I long for true and passionate love but often times, the thought of getting hurt over and over again frightens me
I want to trust again but I keep bleeding and the scars reminds me of the pain
I laugh often because I believe laughter can cure a multitude of ills but then I revert to the scary thoughts in my head
I want to share my story and journey with everyone but I’m often afraid of what others’ perception of me would be
I tell myself I can do bad all by myself but often yearn for the affection of others
I long for opportunities but when it comes knocking, I often doubt my abilities to execute them
You see I have come to accept myself as a multifaceted person, it just isn't that simple
I am a divine original, fashioned by God to be radiantly beautiful in a way that is authentic to me. I was created by the almighty who knew my weaknesses and shortcomings long before I was molded. I often wonder why I am so weak but on the other hand so strong.
And I got my answer reading: 2 Corinthians 12:9 which states:
“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”.
I recognize the higher power that lives within me!Where I fall short, I know that He will be right there to pick up the pieces and mend the broken roads.
We all have our weaknesses and moments of doubts and fear, it's just our human nature, but the decision lies in each of us to rise above our fears and break down barriers. We are all ordinary, but how we choose to live our lives will determine if we attain the extraordinary.
So whenever you feel like quitting, just take a step back and honor the divinity that resides within you!
Three women going through life.
