The world will pull at you, hard. Dragging you by the hand, shouting, “This is important, you aren’t good enough, it will never happen, you need to do this and this” but everyday you will need the strength to yank your hand back, hold it to your heart and say, “No, this is what’s important.” It is vital for your growth that you know who you are. I realize that may seem like such a broad statement when we live in a world that is constantly changing and insisting we change too. Yes, change but only let ONE change you, your creator. See your identity comes from God, the one who made you. Before I formed you in your mother’s womb, I knew you, I set you apart. There are buried treasures that God himself placed inside of you that consists of personality, talents, gifts, and dreams. However, they can only truly be revealed through an authentic relationship with Christ Jesus. Having a real relationship with Jesus is like waking from a deep slumber only to open your eyes to the glow and warmth of the sun, the birds singing you a good cheer song and setting your foot on solid ground. Don’t get tossed in the waves of popularity, vanity, or material possessions. You are more than those fleeting fads. You are more precious than rubies, it’s important that you know that. Your worth does not come from man but from God alone, the one who loves you like no other. God made you, yes you totally unique with a purpose and a plan. You are a warrior princess who will need to put her armor on, daily. This temporary life right here, right now is a battle. However, God gave you all you need to fight the good fight. Don’t lay your sword down to peer pressures or unfulfilled dreams that will cause your soul to grieve. His mercies are new every morning so each day is a new day for you too. Yesterday is long gone, don’t look back, eyes focused ahead and on Him. Don’t waste your mind, the beautiful mind God gave you doing ugly things. Remember the grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of God will stand forever. It’s okay you can let go and let Him take it from here, you are safe in His arms. Let your story be a story of love.
